    I remember hearing about this guy a couple of years ago, and just saw an MSNBC program on him today. Personally? I think Mr. Carlton Pearson's views are pretty much spot on.......

    Best part? This dude is a 4th generation Pentecostal preacher who USED to preach that you were going to go to hell.

    Hey Christians.........what do you think, especially when his own church kicked him out, and he was disavowed by other preachers in his faith?

    Was Oral Roberts right to kick him out of his priesthood?

    And........is preaching this gospel causing others to sin by telling them about it?

    He is right if he is talking about the Resurrection. Every man and woman who has ever lived has been saved from death because of Jesus Christ.

    Because of Christ we will all become Immortal.

    But that doesn't mean we will all have Eternal Life.

    I've not heard of the man, but it sounds like an interesting idea. I was raised a devout Christian of the Baptist denomination, but gave it up in my early 20's (30 years ago) because there were things I couldn't accept as being true, and I went on my own search for something which worked for me. A couple of years ago, I read a Christian book which gave me a new attitude toward the religion (a better view) which was fiction, but had a whole new take on things. It was "The Shack" by Paul Young. Not necessarily a great writer, but the message was unique, very open-minded, and fun.

    Interestingly enough, those "good Christian folk" who supported the preacher at the beginning of his career are also the same ones that abandoned him when he started preaching his message.

    They said that the preacher was leading others into sin.

    But........wouldn't a loving God welcome EVERYONE, and not just those that are dogmatically tied to just one way of viewing Him?
