Liberty University on the Ergun Caner Fiasco

"After a thorough and exhaustive review of Dr. Ergun Caner’s public statements, a committee consisting of four members of Liberty University’s Board of Trustees has concluded that Dr. Caner has made factual statements that are self-contradictory. However, the committee found no evidence to suggest that Dr. Caner was not a Muslim who converted to Christianity as a teenager, but, instead, found discrepancies related to matters such as dates, names and places of residence. Dr. Caner has cooperated with the board committee and has apologized for the discrepancies and misstatements that led to this review. Dr. Caner’s current contractual term as Dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary expires on June, 30, 2010. Dr. Caner will no longer serve as Dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. The university has offered, and Dr. Caner has accepted, an employment contract for the 2010-2011 academic year. Dr. Caner will remain on the faculty of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary as a professor" (http://www2.newsadvance.com/lna/news/local/article/caner_removed_as_head_of_liberty_university_seminary/28135/).

This poor guy has endured months of attacks from Calvinists so he needs a break.

What, no blood flowing onto the floor? What will the henchmen do?

Steven said...

You make him sound like such a victim, Seeking Disciple.

Steven,
In a very real sense, the body of Christ is a victim of Caner's irregularities and of White's personal vendetta wedded to enemies of Christ. Both need to publicly repent of their sins.
