Ergun Caner has been at the center of controversy recently. Mohammad Khan, a Muslim, has launched a website called fake ex muslims. Mohammad has used this website to point out errors and contradictions in Ergun Caner’s testimony, speeches and publications.
Last week I posted evidence on my blog that indicates Ergun Caner was born in Sweden, moved to America before his fourth birthday and has remained here ever since. This is a contradiction to Ergun’s biography on the Liberty University website which states he immigrated to the United States in 1979. Following the start of this controversy, Ergun’s biography was removed from his own website; clicking the BIO link continues to give a not found error as of today.
I want to be very clear that I do not endorse, condone, or share motivations with Mohammad Khan. In fact, I emailed him today calling him to repent and urging him to trust in Jesus alone to save him from the wrath of God he deserves. Mohammad is deceptive in his approach to Ergun Caner and Mohammad’s entire premise is false. The blogger who writes under the pseudonym TurretinFan has posted a three part response to Mohammad’s claims. Ergun Caner is indeed a real ex-Muslim. As my blog post shows, Ergun’s father fought in court for the right to train his children in the Islamic faith.
While disagreeing with Ergun’s Muslim critic, I also call on Ergun to explain why the exposed legal documents contradict his testimony, his speeches, and his biography. A boy who came to America as a toddler and was trained in the Islamic faith for some time, then was saved by a mighty merciful God is a glowing testimony to God’s glory. Why would you want to try robbing God of His glory and invent a testimony that is not your own?
I call upon Jerry Falwell, Jr, Jonathan Falwell and the Liberty University staff to hold Ergun Caner accountable for being honest.
I challenge Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia to be wise stewards of God’s cooperative program resources and prayerfully consider if Liberty University is bringing God glory.
I call Mohammad Khan to repent of his sin and put his faith in the One True God, trusting Jesus alone for salvation.
Most importantly, I call upon Ergun Caner to give God the glory in his salvation and share with the world an honest biography and testimony.
***For The Record: I, Matt Svoboda(blog editor) has contacted Ergun Caner and I told him if he could give me anything showing that Jasons accusations are false then I would immediately take the blog down. He made a couple of points, but failed to answer about the “timeline/raised in predominantly Muslim country” questions. That being said, I believe Ergun plans to continue to respond to me. I will not post the messages/emails because I gave him my word that I wouldnt.
