Christian College Picks Ex-Muslim as President Because of Controversy
Past controversy surrounding Ergun Caner was not a deterrent for one of Georgia's three Southern Baptist colleges in unanimously picking the ex-Muslim-turned-academic as its next president.
Instead, it was an incentive.
"We didn't consider Dr. Caner in spite of the attacks; we elected him because of them," said a trustee for Brewton-Parker College (BPC) in announcing the "controversial educator" as its 16th president (press release copied below). "He has endured relentless and pagan attacks like a warrior. We need a warrior as our next president."...
Penn, I would suggest you look over some of the summaries of the sermons that I have posted and will post, Election: Whose Choice? You have no choice if you are chosen or not? I guess a person has to listen to something like The Roman Road to find out
Dr. Caner, did he speak at my church once, and he was quite forthcoming about Islam and even supported racial profiling for airline security. I would suppose he wouldn't agree with Zola, if he was on the side of ,not Calvin, but of the Bible. (It's God that thought of T.U.[L.]I.P. not Calvin's followers, Calvin probably didn't believe in Limited atonement) So, one doesn't need to use the Word "Calvinism" to see this:
2 Thessalonians 2 13 But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. 14 And it was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.---NASB
it does seem that he says the things that they want to hear, meanwhile the octopus tentacles of the surveillance state continues..... I suppose we "need" it to protect ourselves from the groups that are both attacking us and being funded by us. SBC is in a mess.
and it would have to be Arminian, because calvin implies "elect" implies "chosen people" implies the "heretical" view that salvation is through Christ, not race or land. for many, the gentile is saved through his own choices while the jew through his ethnicity.... the bible, contrarily teaches no distinctions.
the SBC continues to harm its testimony before both the international Christian community and the international muslem community, the latter needing a pure testimony of Christ, not more globalist politics.
I have no doubt that Ergun Caner is a fine man. However, I did see him on Zola Levitt once. On that program, sadly he agreed with the Arminian position. Calvinism and Arminianism are not conpatible. I hope that Mr.Caner has changed his position on that topic.
