I've been keeping quite on the whole ERGUN CANER saga for a number of reasons. Primarily, it is because I have not had the time necessary to put together a convincing case as others have done. Initially, I didn't think that the accusations were that big of a deal. But as JAMES WHITE has regularly covered the issues for several months now, I have begun to see his point on why this matters. For those unfamiliar with what i'm talking about, Ergun Caner is the president of Liberty Theological Seminary. And it would be an understatement to say that Caner is a prominent evangelical apologist. But what is all the fuss about? The issue is truth, consistency, and credibility. Though it pains me to publicly expose a fellow brother in the Lord through the painstaking work done by devout Muslims in researching his claims (who knows how many hours the below video took to make), it is time to join the club.
If you are a follower of Christ who cares about truth and accuracy, consider the parallel. What if one of the most prominent Muslim apologists in the world today made the equivalent claims that Caner makes? For instance, this fictitious Muslim apologists claims to be a former Christian for most of his life, speaks Koine Greek, and debates Christians all over the world. What if this Muslim treated Christianity and the biblical languages the way Caner treats Islam and Arabic? Would this Muslim have any credibility in your eyes? Please watch the below video to see what i'm talking about:
As I don't know Arabic or Islamic theology/culture, I have not checked the accuracy of this video. If anyone has information that falsifies any of the claims made by the Muslim author of the video, please let me know and I will remove this video immediately. In fact, there is nothing I would want more than to disregard all of this and see Caner as innocent.
It looks like these claims have been confirmed:
