Sounds like another Walid Shoebat.

Big churches do this all of the time i.e. hire big name celebrities that push all the right buttons in their public pronouncements. What the churches don’t do is a little research on the guy’s actual history and teaching.

The witch hunt for Caner is unreal.

I can’t imagine being hounded by people who profess themselves as believers, for years and years after-the-fact. What’s known is that he may have elaborated some when talking about his upbringing, but this is quite common among any speaker.

Their called slips of the tongue for a reason and I would hope no one would take a mistake you’d make and force you to relive it and make some grand public repentance. Then and only then may you be acceptable (and even then not really). That sounds like the Pharisees with a stone in their hands rather than Jesus with a hand reaching out.

If the man has made peace with God and those around him in accountability, then that’s all there should be to it. Ergun Caner has done and is doing great things for the Kingdom.

It’s really a shame that he seems to have pulled a Mike Warnke. I saw him speak at an apologetics conference a few years ago, and he was the most entertaining, dynamic speaker, if not the most substantive in terms of the topic.

Raised a Lutheran, raised a Moslem. Those are pretty different things.

Doesn’t he have a brother who makes similar claims?

Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary removed Caner as dean in 2010, citing "factual statements that are self-contradictory” after an investigation “found discrepancies related to matters such as dates, names and places of residence" in his writings and speechs.

"Left to pursue other interests."

In a 1989 will, Caner’s father named two children from a subsequent marriage as beneficiaries and bequeathed Caner and his two brothers each “one copy of the Quran, an Islamic holy book.”

Interesting.
