False prophet Carlton Pearson defensive about being called gay

False prophet du jour Carlton Pearson used to be pentecostalism’s golden boy. Then, he found a wooden nickel and began a crusade to prove that wooden nickels have more value than gold. He’s never been the same since. Strangely, in a March 26th facebook post, Pearson defends his heterosexuality. Strange because he gives no reason as to why he has to defend it. But his defensiveness does bring to scrutiny an oft used accusation against people who preach against homosexuality. Over and over homosexuals (especially the religious type) assert that those who oppose homosexuality are secretly homosexual themselves. They are “repressed closet cases” they say. But what of those who obsessively advocate for homosexuality? Wouldn’t the logic apply to them as well? It did in this case. Apparently, its been put to the test and Carlton Pearson is upset and on the defensive.

His words follow, verbatim:

pearsonI am not gay, but wouldn’t apologize nor be ashamed if I were. I love my wife dearly and have been married to her for over 20 years. We have scores of married and single gay friends we love and respect. You don’t have to be gay to love gay people and even hang out some with them. You don’t have to be a divorcee to love, support and respect them. Neither do you have to be Muslim or Jewish to have friends from those religious disciplines. As Inclusionists, we teach that we don’t have to go along to get along and that we can mind many of the same things without necessarily having the same mind about everything. Inclusionists believe Peace is possible, both individually and globally.
Jesus was accused of eating with “sinners” (Mark 2:15) and protecting prostitutes and adulteresses from the stones of the religious right of his day, called Pharisees. The word Pharisee translates “separatist” or “separated” in both Hebrew and Greek. I am an Inclusionist and proudly so.
Many of my self-righteous detractors accuse me of being gay because I am so outspokenly supportive of gays. Next to the Jewish community, the same gender loving (SGL) community were the first to reach out to me after hearing my Gospel of Inclusion. Do these same people, suspicious of my sexuality, also say I am atheist, a Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Scientologist because I hang with, love and accept them all and others, including those hypocritical so- called Christians who hate themselves and everyone else?
I’m not preaching false doctrine, just exposing it while dealing with some 2000 years of entrenched and mostly erroneous indoctrination. I love Christ and so- called “Christian values” but those taught more by Christ than most Christians.
It both amazes and amuses me that so many Christians simply cannot believe that someone loves unconditionally in the way they like to proclaim Jesus taught and did. Most so-called “people of faith” actually have more fear than faith or more faith in their fears than in God. Or perhaps when I say God as it relates to fundamentalists, it is commensurate to fear of God or faith in their fear of his wrath, in effect is their worst fear. Their God, in order to keep them from sinning, something they presumably would prefer and habitually do, threatens to send them to an eternal customized torture chamber. I once feared that god and his hell too, but I no longer do and I don’t even believe in that manmade and presumably bible supported god or his hell. Even the heaven I believe in is not the one in the Christian bible. That one is too gaudy for my taste. I never liked the streets of gold thing. Reminds me too much of my old TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Stage). BTW, my dear 84 year old mother keeps one of the 3 TVs in her bedroom tuned to TBN 24/7 Lol! . I actually prefer sands and beaches to walls of Jasper and topaz as the book of Revelation describes and prescribes. And why would heaven need walls anyway? Moreover, as I close, most gays I know are much more like Christ than many of the Christians I know. And most of my same gender loving (SGL) friends, both male and female, seem to be better (not bitter) and more responsible and loving Christians than most common fundamentalists. Same is true of many of the non-Christian SGL people. I could say the same thing about several of my atheist, Jewish and Muslim friends as well. Again, this is not a criticism, but an observation and an important one that must not be ignored. Being in church or a church no more makes you Christlike than being in a garage makes you an automobile. What say ye?

This is nothing more that perverse and self serving apologetics. Pearson has so deeply invested himself in his inclusion delusion, he may never recover from it. We can only hope he will, but the father of lies has a hook in his mouth and God may just allow it to remain in place. Still, Pearson has a following. That’s not necessarily a good thing, because Jim Jones had a following as well. If one does not escape the clutches of a false teacher it will lead to death: most certainly spiritual and sometimes naturally.

Atlanta minister Mark Moore writes that Pearson’s inclusion delusion will force the church to abandon its foundational anchors.

“To view inclusion as a viable Christian doctrine, we would have to throw away the Old Testament and its big mean God who had the nerve to punish people. We would need to censor the radical Jesus of the Gospels on that whole “must be born again” thing and silence Paul and his admonition to “come out from among them.” We would certainly have to walk through revelations with a white out paint brush and cover up all of that lake of fire and judgment stuff. In short, we would have to completely disregard the word of God in order to make inclusion make sense. Jesus is not simply a way, He is the only way. Yet and still, it seems that more and more people are living lives and promoting lifestyles that suggest Bishop Pearson was right in his assertion that the church is moving closer to his position.”

  1. This thing that Carlton Pearson is so wrapped up in is like a bowl of spaghetti. The noodles are all over the place with the sauce of doctrines of devils and seducing spirits. One preacher put it like this….”It would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.”

    • gcmwatch says:

      He’s definitely created a conundrum for himself. Now the logic that’s been used to assassinate good men and women who oppose homosexuality is being used on him for supporting it. He’s never refuted it when it worked to their advantage but now he wants to get defensive and act like its just a benign facet of inclusionism.

  2. wayne cooper says:

    Poor Carlton! He has truly lost himself in his heresy. So based on his very own words, the hell that Jesus talked about more than He did a out heaven is a lie and non – existent. The glorious views of heaven that we see in the book of Revelation is also fictitious. So if the Bible is a big lie, then what is our authority to claim a relationship with God through His Son Jesus? Who or what has called Carlton to preach?

    If there is one lie in the Scriptures, then surely we must ask how man other lies are in there? Carlton simply wants to hide his obvious gay life in the name of tolerance and being a so – called “inclusionist”. Sadly, he is a confused and misguided gay man!

    • L. Davis says:

      King David said it this way: “Their rock is NOT like unto our Rock.” Clearly, he is serving another Jesus, believes in another gospel and is moved by another spirit (all of which are false). He has turned unto to fables for doctrine. He has denounced the Jesus of the Bible and pronounced his own judgment. If he fails to repent, he won’t have to worry about seeing streets of gold, walls of jasper, nor will he be seeing sandy beaches where all unbelievers go, a hell that burns with fire and brimstone. You know the one that Jesus spoke of more than 30 times; that one.

      O Lord, you certainly do love, for while we were yet sinners you chose to die for us. Yet you did give us conditions for salvation, “Repent and be converted unto the truth”. Pearson is deceived, because he thinks Jesus advocated for sin as he does. Christ may have eaten with publicans, touched the unclean, visited with the sinners, covered with the adulterers, BUT NEVER, did he justify, redefine advocate for or diminish sin as acceptable, as long as a person believes. He came to save the people from their sins. That is gospel truth. Anyone declaring otherwise is hearing from demonic spirits. God Spirit will only leads us to the Truth.

      I’ve eaten with gays: Had them in my home, when their family didn’t want anything to do with them, and I gave them the gospel truth in love. I’ve taken them shopping, and such, because they had need. As a human being, I can empathize with others, but as a Christians I cannot sympathize with unholy causes. My family has done this for rank sinners of all kinds, whenever the Holy Spirit led, but NEVER did we or will we approve of sin in ourselves or others.

      • gcmwatch says:

        Thats right L Davis! Pearson says you dont have to be gay to love gays. My response is you dont have to approve of homosexuality to love gays. This guy is a convoluted ball of confusion.

  3. saint james says:

    So in his doctine of Hell Carlton wants all of the Biblical imagery of it to be fictional or symbolic but in the biblical references to heaven streets of gold, walls of jasper, etc., are literal? He’s a confused, rebellious man. He yet calls himself Bishop and wears the garb but by whom is he consecrated? He has always been in love with his former church’s history, drama, and tradition and once claimed that the founder, Bishop Mason came and spoke to him all night at the foot of His bed; “Remind the Saints of the Hope” he claims, Mason said. Is this that of which Mason supposedly spoke?

  4. LaNardo Butler says:

    Carlton Pearson is the prime example of a man who was “never” taught the truth…because if he had been taught…the truth he would not have been looking for “something” else to teach/preach. So he got “hooked” by the doctrine of devils because…he was looking for “more” hype to go with that pesky Hammond organ…can’t preach without that organ and hollering. Sure if we are going to praise, turn the organ all the way up…but the organ playing and hollering and holding the side of the head…is a distraction that will lead many to the “Pearson Blvd.” He thought that he would be the next “Big” thing and it backfired on him and the church he pastored. Scriptures plainly say that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom…reguardless of how nice and loving they are.

    I’ll show you where Pearson went wrong…

    I bet you he believes in the trinity…that is the first problem…because Jesus Christ stated that He is “The Almighty” in Rev. 1:8.

    Trinity belief and the “homosexual in heaven” theory goes hand in hand…God said he was alone and that there was no one else with Him…but some men/women believe that God is 3 distinct persons…which is a lie, God is a spirit…not a person. John 4:24

    All I’m saying is…all of this started with the teaching Pearson started with.

    Hit me up on Facebook.

    • saint james says:

      Trinity: Red Herring alert!!! The Biblical term is GODhead. In Christ all the fullness of the godhead dwelt bodily. His “Trinitarian” beliefs did not lead Him down this path.

      • gcmwatch says:

        yeah uh what does the Father, Son and Holy Ghost got to do with false acceptance of homosexuality? Thats like blaming a bird in Russia for you burning your TV dinner. And if you wanna get technical there are just as many “Oneness” believers who are jacked up about homosexuality too. So, please drop that senselessness.

    • A.L. says:

      What does the “Trinity ” have to do with anything. The Church is so confused and we wonder why people can’t really get with what we are saying, they’re too busy looking at what we do. Ain’t none of us going to heaven with all this hatred and violence in our hearts. For God so Loved the WORLD!!! and that means everyone Saints, even the gays, and fornicators, and the greedy, and the gossipers, and lyers, and so on on and so on. GROW UP SAINTS, AND GET BUSY WHILE WE STILL HAVE DAYLIGHT, SO A SEED, WE ARE THE LABORERS LET’S GO TO WORK AND STOP THE MADNESS.

  5. I knew Carlton Pearson was “different” when I first saw him on TV. I felt sorry for his beautiful wife because she did not know. I wonder where she really is in this matter today, 20 years later.

    “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”
    2 Timothy 4:3

  7. A.L. says:

    “Wise as serpents but gentle as doves”, we will never win the lost with the spirit of condemnation and hatred. These people are all in need of our prayers, not the horrible name calling that being posted. If we “saved” folks put as much energy into sharing the true message of the gospel, we would have so many people coming to Christ, that even we would be amazed but this trendy “down with the gays” is not from God but from the enemy. Our focus should not be on any particular group of sinners, for all have come short of the glory of God, and we are saved it was not our doing but the grace of God. Lift Jesus up, let him do the drawing and stop bashing people, Pray and keep the love of God in our hearts to witness to people who have lost there way….

    • gcmwatch says:

      AL your comment is fully of trendy cliches but I will only ask this: where did Jesus instruct us to pray for false prophets, wolves and false teachers?
