Evangelical welcomes gays & rejects the "customized torture chamber" of hell

By Diane Silver

Evangelical preacher Carlton Person is somebody we need to get to know. He has been shunned by the fundamentalist community for doing nothing more radical than believing in a God of love. He declared that God is Not a Christian in a 2006 book of the same name. Wow.

He stopped believing in hell. He was no longer willing to preach that a loving God would doom most of humanity to a "customized torture chamber." Deciding that "if Jesus is the savior of the world, then the world is saved," Pearson started spreading "a gospel of inclusion" -- proclaiming that everyone is saved, not just Christians..."I am not telling people they have to love gays. I am telling people they get to love gays. ... All people want is permission," Pearson says.
