In a statement issued by Liberty University Friday, a panel of four trustees announced they had found that Ergun Caner, dean of the seminary at the Lynchburg, Virginia, school, had made "self-contradictory" statements about "dates, names and places of residence" in his public talks following the events of September 11, 2001. However, the trustees found no evidence to question Caner's basic claim that he was "a Muslim who converted to Christianity as a teenager."

He also claims his son's name "Braxton" is "warrior" in the Maori tongue. However, a friend from New Zealand who I asked about it says no, "hori" is "warrior" in Maori. He did not offer any alternative that Caner could have meant. It is becoming plain that he thinks exaggeration and making things up on the fly is a legitimate way of preaching the gospel.
How many lies make one a habitual liar? This is the "christianized" version of bragging in the locker room about how many girls you've screwed when everyone knows you can't even get a date.
there is an epidemic in this country of people falsifying their resume’s.
A potential employer is a fool if the resume is not carefully checked out.
Check previous employers - attendance, quality of work, reason for leaving, etc.
Do a credit and criminal background. Did the applicant actually attend the university recorded? Graduate? Was it a mail order diploma?
I have seen and heard Ergun speak...
Too bad if it is true that he let pride take over where God was working.
Paul warned of this happening to leaders of the faith.
This is sad. The leadership of Liberty should fire Caner, and if they do not he should resign. I noticed at Liberty’s site that Caner is listed as Professor of Global Apologetics - give me a break!
I don’t know if a “Possum Kill, NC” exists or not, unless it is one of those folklore places like B.F. Egypt. There is, however a “Lizard Lick, NC” not far from Raleigh, NC.
