Bishop Carlton Pearson, "The Way I See It"
A lot has been in the news lately about Bishop Carlton Pearson. A Pentecostal minister, formerly featured on TBN, Pearson has embraced universalism. The most recent news report was released this month on 20/20: "'Nobody Goes to Hell': Minister Labeled a Heretic."

Now you can read Pearson's so-called "wisdom" on your next Starbucks cup. The Way I See It #250 contains this jewel of spiritual insight:

In reality, hell is not such an intention of God as it is an invention of man. God is love and people are precious. Authentic truth is not so much taught or learned as it is remembered. Somewhere in your pre-incarnate consciousness you were loved absolutely because you were. Loved absolutely, and in reality, you still are! Remember who you are!

It makes me wonder--where in the world does he come up with such foolishness? Almost every phrase of this quote is riddled with error! Pearson yet again demonstrates what happens when people sever themselves from God's truth revealed in Scripture.

Hi John; well said. I've been meaning to comment on the "God is love" defense for some time now, and this quote by Pearson seemed to me the perfect precipitant. If you're interested, I have written a lengthier article based around it, called simply 'God Is Love'.

Regards in Christ,
Dominic Bnonn Tennant
