Anyone willing to look into the facts can see that Ergun Caner exaggerated and lied many times for several years about his background. Some time ago, some Muslims had been documenting this, and in 2010 started giving the documentation to James White. We call upon Ergun Caner to repent of this and come clean. Ergun Caner is continuing to give ammunition for Muslims to laugh and mock the truth of Christianity.
You can see the many articles and videos here that Dr. White has made over the past few years documenting Ergun Caner’s lies and calling for his repentance.
See other documentation here.
The sad thing is, if Ergun Caner had not lied, he would have had a great testimony. It takes just as much of the grace God to save a teenager in the USA, who was born in Sweden, child of a Swedish mother and Turkish father, moved here when he was 2; – it takes the grace of God to save him, as it does to save a Jihadist type Muslim trained in war or terrorism. He could have shared that his father was Turkish, no problem; and that he was familiar with some of that aspect of his Turkish background and his father’s culture and Islamic religion. But he obviously grew up in the USA as they moved here from Sweden when he was 2 years old. Caner was not trained in Jihad; He was not born in Turkey; and he did not even live in Turkey (he may have visited a few times); he was not trained in Jihad in Cairo or Beruit. His high school photos show him to be a normal American kid. He is not fluent in Arabic nor Turkish. Amazing how he spoke gibberish gobblygoop and tried to pass it off as Arabic several times. As Dr. White called it – “TBN tongues”. Sad.
All people are lost and dead in sin, “there is no disinction, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” Romans 3:22-23
” . . . even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus”
Addendum 2 (January 14) – This is very good program (Pulpit and Pen with J. D. Hall interviewing James White) on why the Case against Ergun Caner matters – 1. For the integrity of the pulpit 2. Because Muslims are saying to Evangelicals who witness to them, “so you are like Ergun Caner, who had to lie to made his story more exciting!”. Some have called it “Christian Deception”.
