Breaking News: Caner Removed As Dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary

Ergun Caner has been removed from his office at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He will, however, remain as a professor, at least for the 2010/2011 school year. I'll have some thoughts on all this for you on Monday.

Meanwhile, here are some comments from readers left at the Liberty Student News article on Caner's "dismissal":

Revelation 21:8 out of the Liberty University Standard Verson (LUSV): "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all persons who make factual statements that are self-contradictory, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
* * *
If we confess our discrepancies and misstatements, God is faithful and just to forgive us our self-contradictory facts and let us keep our jobs.
* * *
On the day that Ergun Caner's career as Dean of Liberty's seminary comes to an end, he's busy "tweeting" things like "Donuts R holy." I think I see the problem.
* * *
He did not lie. He did not intentionally mislead any one.

He only misspoke.

He only made factual statements that are self-contradictory.

I am relieved to know that he didn't sin and can remain a professor of students.
* * *
It is obvious to me that no one in leadership ever sins. They have reached a state of sinless perfection. From this point on, they only misspeak, make mistakes, or make factual statements that are self-contradictory. They most certainly do not lie! That would be a sin. And sin they do not do!

These comments are from the student news website. I assume these are Liberty's students. It's enough to make you think, isn't it?
