Olowa’s testimony

Clarity

Not an attack on a man
I have no ought. People said repeatedly that I was bashing him. I’m not. It got to him and he knows that we’re having this conversation
Why am I doing this? A: We need to be able to hear and know and defend our faith. PLUS there’s a main stream movie staring a man who occupies the office of “Bishop”
An awful lot of material to cover - I don’t know that i will cover it all
Supposition: The enemy was strategic in picking him. One who’d done so much and made so many inroads

heresy. Any teaching rejected by the Christian community as contrary to Scripture and hence to orthodox doctrine. Most of the teachings that have been declared heretical have to do with either the nature of God or the person of Jesus Christ. The term heresy is not generally used to characterize non-Christian belief. That is to say, systems of belief such as atheism or agnosticism, or non-Christian religions such as Buddhism or Islam are not technically heresy. The term heresy is generally reserved for any belief that claims to be Christian and scriptural but has been rejected by the church as sub-Christian or antiscriptural.

Transition: So where do we start?

Ultimate it is not his fault.
Whos’ fault was it that Eve ate the apple Adam, cause he wasn’t

The Gospel of Inclusion is the exciting and liberating news that in the finished work of the cross, Jesus redeemed the entire world to God from the cosmic and organic sin imposed upon it by Adam, the original man. In effect, the world is already saved, they just don't know it; and, unfortunately, most Christians don't believe it. says, "...we have put our trust in the living God who is the Savior of all men, and especially those who believe." Jesus did not just die for Christians, He died to redeem, reconcile, and ultimately save the Cosmos.
Jesus was not a Christian, He was a Jew. God, however, is Spirit and cannot be confined exclusively to any particular religion including Christianity. He's not Jewish or Christian or Hindu or Buddhist; yet, He is all of that if we want or need Him to be, while at the same time, none of it conclusively, because He can't be and, in fact, is not limited to a person's or culture's perception of Him.
He loves everybody, He understands everybody, and He has a covenant with everybody-again, whether they know it or not.

Does this not sound good, exciting, confusing and Biblical at the same time?! THIS is the consistent theme through the theological thought pattern of Carlton Pearson.
Consistently, incomplete and altered support is brought in to argue a point…WRONG!
Basic principle a text without context creates pretext
1. Written to Young Timothy - He’s just told him about the great Apostasy
1 Timothy 4:1–3 NKJV
1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

2. It doesn’t fit with the former thought
1 Timothy 2:4–6 NKJV
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
1 Timothy 2:2–6 NKJV
2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

There is No Hell

this clip is an intro best segment I could find to show his conundrum

https://youtu.be/_AvsSh-VUKY

4:18 “I was angry…” - 9:10 “He was sending too many of my people to hell.”

The ultimate hell is that I’m separated from the presence of God
on record saying hell is what you percieve

Facts about the number of references Jesus makes about hell

its crazy to say that Jesus didn’t speak about hell.
one scholar suggested the most talked about topic by Jesus

Poor Hermeneutic - fancy way of saying it’s sloppy science.

Gehena, Hades, Sheol now they want to take it as a literal place
thoughts about hell
When asked “Is anyone going to hell? His answer...
Hell is a place you go through, not to. We all go through hell. There are people that are so tormented right now-a hell that we created for them or that they created for themselves and they can't imagine a worse experience.
We've created this monster called the devil that lords it over this eternal torture chamber. None of that is scriptural, if you really study the Bible thoroughly. If Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, then hell is irrelevant as a punitive thing. It can only be a corrective thing. The punishment for sin has been paid by Jesus. We've been exonerated.

You have to contort and literally remove portions of Scripture to make it work.

Lazarus

Luke 16:19–31 NKJV
19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ 27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’ ”
Revelation 1:18 NKJV
18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
Revelation 20:14 NKJV
14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Ephesians 4:11 NKJV
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
1 Peter 3:18–19 NKJV
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, 19 by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,
eph 4.11
Ephesians 4:11–12 NKJV
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
Ephesians 4:11–13 NKJV
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

Everybody Is Already Saved

“If everybody’s saved, what is he preaching for?” Pastor Bill Tims
When my detractors interpret that passage, they tend to mean, "No one comes to God except through 'Christianity' rather than Christ." They think it means "no one can get to the Father except you (they) get down on their knees, confess Jesus, and jump through all the traditional religious hoops in order to reach God." But that scripture doesn't mean that at all. Read more at http://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/2003/06/jesus-will-save-you-whether-you-agree-or-not.aspx#FSyr2iTcIhrpAPXq.99

[God is] so inclusive, it's hard to believe. He put the versions of Himself back together in Christ. There's a version of God that's Hindu. There's a version of God that's Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Baha'i. It's so beautiful. Christians are hung up on "You need to believe in Jesus." Christians forget that it's not about somebody believing in Christianity, it's about Christ believing in humanity. He created humanity and understands the diversity of humanity. He accepts us as we are. There's a difference between being Christlike and simply liking Christ. Everyone likes a Messiah. Everyone wants one. Everyone thinks in one way they have one, whether it's Buddha or Muhammad or Jesus. But to be Christlike, the likeness of Christ, His spirit, His goodness-that's what we've gotten away from.

1 Corinthians 15:21 NKJV
For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.

Gospel of Inclusion (Why retitle it from what Scripture class it?)
I don’t care how you cut it, God is the great judge, not us. And God said… it’s not our works it’s our faith
deal with the issue of those that haven’t or won’t hear.
you’ve got to hear to say to say no
Ephesians 2:8 NKJV
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Hell Vs. Not Inheriting the K
1 cor 6:
1 Corinthians 6:9–11 NKJV
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Reality Moment:
ghandi is in hell
Your grandmama that didn’t
his interpretation is that you just need to tell folk they are already saved because Jesus took the bill
Err: Scripture says that we have to do more than just hear…we have to believe and confess
Romans 10:9 NKJV
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
The Lazarus text…his neighbor had to repent!!!
I agree, why go through hell to go to hell?
Hitler is the embodiment of evil. But the antichrist spirit was showing up long before when the Jews were seeking to be wiped off the face of the earth.

Herod - Jesus
Matthew 16:18 NKJV
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
By sin one man entered
Romans 5:12 NKJV
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—
He may not have commissioned Hitler, but he evidently permissioned Hitler, or he would have stopped him. Why did he allow Hitler to do what he did? In my estimation Hitler's acts are absolutely unforgivable. However, God is responsible for that kind of deviance, and he uses other human beings to counteract and/or prohibit such things. God is ultimately responsible for the devil because He created him. He's got to fix all such aberrations Himself, and Christ is His ultimate answer to such questions and speculations.
the book of life.
Revelation 20:15 NKJV
15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
common sense tells me that there will be some who are in the Book and some who are NOT in the book!!!

It’s ok to look for answers outside of Scripture

“the Bible is not the inspired Word of God, it is the inspired word of Man about his perception about God.” 4/14/2018 @ 9 mins 30 secs
If you change one part of the scripture you can change any part. The Word is to be a plumbline
Amos 7:8 NKJV
8 And the Lord said to me, “Amos, what do you see?” And I said, “A plumb line.” Then the Lord said: “Behold, I am setting a plumb line In the midst of My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore.
Acts 4:12 NKJV
12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
I’ve discovered when you’re confused, hurt, angry or can’t find the answer in the Word of God, you have to build something new.
Ex. The way my wife diets. For me and anybody else, that won’t work. She knows what and how and it works for her and her only. To document it, she goes to the doctor and the test show everytning is honkey dory
Pt. Carlton has made a hodge podge or thought and theroy and tried to reconcile his concerns and picture of God by disavowing the Word he’s preached

https://youtu.be/rCiC2mbEIyw

4:29 “I’m 4 generations classical Pentecostal”

4:50 “I know how to pray cast the devil out.”

God Speaks contrary to His Word

“If everybody’s saved, what is he preaching for?” Pastor Bill Tims
ghandi is in hell

Jesus isn’t the Jesus that he Preached

Jesus isn’t the Jesus that he Preached

God Speaks Contrary to Scripture
Common Sense-Maybe I’m not enlightened.
I believe it’s anti-christ
“i believe it was the Spirit of God.” “That’s when I heard THAT voice say...”

Conclusion

He’s arguing the wrong way. He too hates religion.
He’s looking for what makes sense to him
He’s been selected by Satan cause he’s effective
