Bishop Carlton Pearson On Why The Largest Christian Fundamentalist University In The World, Liberty University Invited 45 To Be It Commencement Speaker???

Reader Bishop Carlton Pearson has posted a Facebook post that's going viral. In the post, Bishop Pearson asked the question is anyone surprised that the first place to have or perhaps to even invite 45 for a 2017 Commencement speaker is the largest Christian fundamentalist University in the world, Liberty University?

Liberty was founded by the late Jerry Falwell who also founded the very popular and successful political and social activist organization The Moral Majority. The Liberty Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist church. The Southern Baptist Convention, the world's largest Baptist denomination and the largest Protestant body in the United States, with over 15 million members as of 2015. They are split from northern Baptists over the issue of slavery; the immediate issue was whether slave owners could serve as missionaries, something that to Northern Baptist seemed inconsistent with the spirit of Christ. Same is pretty much true today with regard to liberals being more inclusionists and conservatives being more exclusionists. The word Pharisee is translated both in Hebrew and Greek as "separatist" and basically means "Apartheid" (apart from). It is an attitude of "aboveness" or better than others or better than everyone else. It is the epitome of bigotry, discrimination, and classism.

  1. For Pearson to state that Jesus was controversial is to mislead his sheep!

    Jesus came to fulfill the law and the prophets (Matthew 5:17-20); and he was obedient (to the precepts of God) even unto death (Philippians 2:8). He is, therefore, our perfect example (John 13:15, 1 Peter 2:21).

    And another thing, repentance is NOT rethinking, but turning away from sin (Acts 3:19).
