From Berean Research:
On January 18, Jerry Falwell, Jr., president of Liberty University (LU), rolled out what was called a “hero’s welcome” for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump when he spoke at a mandatory convocation service. LU’s motto is “Training Champions for Christ.” Falwell received flak for giving what many felt was a personal endorsement of Trump. He told the crowd that he admired Trump’s willingness to be politically incorrect and compared him to his father and founder of LU the late Jerry Falwell, Sr. Regrettably, LU’s president wanted the students to believe that Donald Trump is a Christian, even though there is scant evidence that he’s truly born again. (Visit this post to learn more on Trump’s faith claim.) Two days later controversial “pastor” Rich Wilkerson, Jr. spoke at the university. LU is no stranger to controversy. Browse the 2016 speakers and you will see the names of other problematic high profile pastors, authors and entertainers. For example: Erwin McManus, Jentezen Franklin, Francis Chan, James MacDonald, Ann Voskamp, Jesus Culture and more.
