HERESY: The Paulks Meet Carlton Pearson's Inclusive Gospel!

A Gospel is a gospel, and a gospel under any other name, is still "a different gospel."
I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
Galatians 1:6-7
What are the people at Cathedral at Chapel Hill thinking?
Since he became a Universalist in the late 1990s, Carlton Pearson has lost almost all the support he once enjoyed among charismatics and Pentecostals in this country. His 5,000-member church in Tulsa, Okla., has shrunk to a few hundred, forcing his building into foreclosure.

But that hasn't stopped the discredited preacher from spreading his quirky "everybody is saved" doctrine on secular television programs, including National Public Radio, Fox News and the National Geographic Channel.

And now Pearson has announced that his next major theological summit - called Inclusion 2006 - will be held in October at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit [aka Cathedral at Chapel Hill], a charismatic church founded by Bishop Earl Paulk in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur.
Heretics, I gather, when they are discovered, circle their wagons and call out loudly, "Olly Olly Oxen Free"! They all come running.

I first posted on The Paulk Brother's Three Ring Circus in Decatur in a three-part series entitled "THE CHURCH'S DIRTY COLLAR - Part I," "Part II," and "Part III" (three of my highest trafficed posts).

I first posted on The Carlton Pearson Side Show here and then made a passing comment here.

J. Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine writes in "Heresy in the Cathedral" ...
"Inclusionism," in case the term is new to you, is the idea that God does not exclude anyone from heaven. It is ultimate extreme in liberal heresy. If Jesus died for all, then all automatically receive eternal life. No matter how people choose to live their lives on Earth, or whether they respond to Christ through repentance and faith, they get free admission into a glorious afterlife.

In other words, you can live any way you want to. There is no hell. The worst sinners - and maybe even the devil himself - will wind up in heaven.
What we have here is a denial of the person and the works of the Lord Jesus Christ. Any church that associates with these yokels can't legitimately call itself a church.

Birds of a feather flock together ... but they're all goats to the Lord.
