Celebrity Minister Dropped as Liberty U Seminary Dean

By Rick Pearcey • June 28, 2010, 07:24 AM

"A Baptist minister who toured the country to talk about his conversion from Islam to Christianity is no longer the dean of Liberty University's theological seminary following allegations he fabricated or embellished facts about his past, the school said Friday," according to OneNewsNow.

"The university founded by Rev. Jerry Falwell said that a board of trustees committee concluded Ergun Caner made contradictory statements. Although it didn't find evidence that he was not a Muslim who converted as a teenager, it did discover problems with dates, names and places he says he lived, a statement said," reports OneNewsNow. "Caner will remain on the Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary faculty, but won't be dean when his term expires on June 30."

Comment: It is crucial to do the Lord work in the Lord's way, which among other things means truthfulness in resumes, publishing (claims to book or column "authorship," for example), PR, marketing, fundraising, etc., is vital. Anything less is hypocrisy, makes Christianity a laughingstock, reveals a cynicism at the heart of some ministries and big names, does untold harm to unsuspecting people, suggests a church captured by secularism, and takes God's name in vain.
