Heretics

I am a loyal listenerof Chicago Public Radio’s weekly series, “This American Life.” No matter how many different types of media are out there, I still find the radio documentary to be a powerful medium. Since I cant always catch it when its on, I made a point to subscribe to their weekly podcast.

A few months ago, I heard this fascinating story about Reverend Carlton Pearson, a renowned evangelical pastor in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This story talks about his rise in the evangelical arena, and his eventual fall because of his doubts in the belief of hell. He wondered if a loving God would really condemn most of the human race to burn and writhe in the fire of Hell for eternity. He then started preaching the theology of “inclusion-ism” which believed God was all-loving, regardless of what path he or she chose. He was ultimately declared a heretic by the church.

When I originally heard this, it made me think of how the concept of Ik Onkar would fly in the evangelical community. Take a listen…I’d be curious to hear what others think.
