A new article posted by James White has brought to my mind a very simple question. Why are we suppose to ignore (overlook, laugh off, you pick the term) the lies Dr. Ergun Caner has told about his past and, at the very same time, be outraged by a Democratic politician who has done the same thing? Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (LINK) Dr. Ergun Caner (LINK) Other than substance, I don't see any moral difference between what the two men have done. Both have misrepresented, lied about, their past in order to make themselves look more important (credible). It is time for Christians, Calvinist or not, to stand up and demand honesty and accountability from all Christians (mainly in positions of leadership). The excuses put forward by men such as Norman Geisler are sickening (see letter on White's blog). No Christian leader should be coming to Caner's defense. Everyone, in leadership and in the pew, should be demanding honesty and accountability. In 1Corinthians 5, the Apostle Paul is dealing with a church that allowed an unrepentant sinner to remain in their fellowship. Paul is shocked by this behavior. At Liberty University, we have a evangelical, Christian body that, at the leadership level, is refusing to deal with a brother who has openly sinned and yet refuses to repent (come clean about his past). It is time for Christian accountability at Liberty University and in the office of Dr. Ergun Caner. It is time to put this issue to rest. That can only be done by Dr. Ergun Caner publicly, in some format, confessing and repenting of his sin. Then, and only then, can everyone move on. As a Liberty University alumnus, I am grieved by this whole controversy. I am grieved that Dr. Ergun Caner has brought such shame upon such a fine school.
