Carlton Pearson - Falling Farther Away From Truth

Former TBN preacher Carlton Pearson, who embraced universalism a few years ago, continues his downward slide away from Christ and into the New Age Movement. He writes in his Fall Newsletter:

Jesus said to His disciples and detractors: “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods?’ …. he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word (Logos/Logic) of God came..." He was actually quoting an Old Testament Psalm of King David who wrote it this way: “I said you are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.” But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler.”

...Deepak Chopra says in his book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: "In reality, we are divinity disguised, and the gods and goddesses in embryo that are contained within us seek to be fully materialized.”

As a fourth generation Pentecostal Christian, what you are about to read is something no one would ever have predicted that I would be writing or even thinking, not even me... It has taken me 50 years to lose my amnesia and come to this awakened Christ-consciousness.

....If humanity is in danger or trouble today, it is not because of the wrath or will of God, but because of the darkness in the minds of men… Most of this darkness comes out of a wrong or inaccurate image of God and what He requires or desires of us.

The danger is not in the Nuclear or Atom bomb but the “Adam man” who is frustrating his inherent potential by ignoring his spiritual essence, his immutable and permanent Self and Soul... The Kingdom of God is still within you and in all of humankind… The Mind of Christ is in every one of us, without exception. It is inherent in us— in our divine nature. We are intrinsically and originally God-like.

Unfortunately, most people have been lulled and locked into spiritual amnesia and are struggling to recall their essence in divinity. This is where we, as the so-called church, have failed the planet. We are here not to convert the world to Christianity, but to remind the world of their inextricable and benevolent connection to the God who created them. This was the message and ministry of Christ in and on the earth.

....We’ve been taught that we were created both in God’s image and likeness, but at the same time, born in sin and shaped in iniquity; that we are intrinsically bad, sinners from birth, born with an automatic death sentence followed by eternal torture and unspeakable torment in unending weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. This perception makes us openly fear God and inwardly hate Him. You will never deeply or ultimately love what you subtly, awkwardly and inwardly fear and hate!

Yes, I don't know how people ever got the silly idea that we're sinners from birth and in danger of hellfire from anything we've read in the Scriptures!

"Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me." Psalm 51:5

"You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?" Matt. 23:33

"If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out." Mark 9:43

"In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side." Luke 16:23
