In the early 2000s he fell from Grace to grass after his 5,000 church members deserted him after he announced that he no longer believed in hell, this lead to fellow pentecostal bishops branding him a “card-carrying heretic”. He lost his 645-acre ranch and his church in Tulsa, Oklahoma faced foreclosure forming him to relocate.
He no preaches to a smaller congregation and says he loves his new life.
“I was loving my life, going all over the world and preaching to crowds as large as 250,000, and writing books, and I had award-winning albums. I had a great life, and I don’t regret one bit of it, But I wouldn’t go back. I’m still putting the pieces together, but it works for me. People thought I had lost my mind. I actually found my mind with all of this.”
Carlton Pearson Nobody Goes to Hell
Through the years he began studying the ancient Greek and Hebrew Scriptures and developed a cris of faith. He began agonizing over the fate of his non christian family members as his faith doomed them to hell.
“I couldn’t reconcile a God whose mercy endures forever, and this torture chamber that’s customized for unbelievers. How can you really love a god who’s torturing your grandmother? And that’s what I went through for years.”
The more he studied the Bible he saw it as the book by men about God as opposed to the wordof God. Men were prone to mistranslations, political agendas and human emotions.
He had an epiphany one night as he watched Peter Jennings’ report on the parade of suffering in Rwanda.
“I remember thinking that these were probably Muslims because God wouldn’t let that happen to Christians, Unbelieving Muslims, little starving babies and that they were going to die and go to hell. And that’s when I said, ‘God, how could you, how could you call yourself a loving God and a living God, and just let them suffer like that, then to suck them into hell?’ And that’s when I thought I heard an inner voice say, ‘Is that what you think we’re doing?’ I said, ‘That’s what I’ve been taught. You’re sucking them into hell.’ And that voice said, ‘Can’t you see they’re already there? That’s hell. You created that.'”
“The bitter torment of the idea of an angry, visceral, distant, stoic, harsh, unrelenting, unforgiving, intolerant God is hell. It’s pagan, it’s superstitious, and if you trace its history, it goes way back to where men feared the gods because something happened in life that caused frustration that they couldn’t explain.”
When he began sharing his message he was labelled heretic and his assistant pastors quit and his congregation dropped from 6,000 to less than 300.
“When people leave by the thousands, it’s like pulling clumps of your hair out at one time. It was hell. Now that’s hell. The people who created hell for me are people who used to love me and will call themselves followers of Christ. It wasn’t some secular, atheist, God-hating infidel that denounced me … my own brethren, with whom I sat, and ate, whose babies I dedicated.”
“Religion won’t let you love yourself. Religion is the accuser of the brethren, that’s what the devil is. It’s legal systems, religious dogmas that say you’re not good enough, you’re not God enough. People who believe in hell create it for themselves and others. People who believe in devils and demons become that in consciousness, and they act it out.”
Carlton Pearson Gospel of Inclusion
After his fall out with Pentecostal dominations he preaches what he calls ‘gospel of inclusion’. He says he believes that only a small subset of the population will receive salvation; instead, he has sought to build a more welcoming church, particularly by reaching out to the LGBT community. He said he now realizes LGBT people “need healing ministry and restorative ministry, because of the abuse that the church has given them.”
“Today Pearson’s ministry targets specifically and primarily the ‘un or less-churched.’ He makes his appeal to those who feel spiritually unresolved. His ministry now addresses issues of spiritual, social, moral, cultural, religious and political significance in a practical, yet provocative manner relating faith to culture. He likes to call himself a Sacred Activist and Spiritual Progressive and is a strong proponent of Justice and Peace issues,” his website reads.

After he lost his congregation he agonized over his new belief.
“If you think I haven’t sat and asked God, ‘Am I crazy? I see you bigger and better but am I, am I gonna lead people to hell?’ Kill me God.”

The community labeled my father a heretic. We lost everything. I can’t even imagine all that he had to go through for him to still come home and smile. His heart and his determination has always been consistent and that’s what inspires me and I feel like it’s what I have because that’s my dad.”

Carlton Pearson New Movie Come Sunday 2018 On Netflix
Netflix’s new biopic, Come Sunday, relates the record of Carlton Pearson, a Pentecostal religious director who ended up one of the key African Americans to have a megachurch in Tulsa — and lost everything by changing his feelings. Decades after his horrifying foundation of incident and rejection, Carlton Pearson from Come Sunday now, in 2018, is so far addressing, yet with an endlessly sudden mentality in contrast with the one that started his calling.
As showed by his own particular site, Pearson today is developing a “multi-social and on a very basic level far reaching ‘Metacostal’ computerized gathering” that’ll empower him to spread his new, modernized message of affirmation and confidence, laced with finding that through the most significant feeling of being. He furthermore settled the Metacostal Network of Churches and Ministries, which embraces on an effective procedure to interfacing with Christianity.
It’s irrefutably as per the feelings showed up in Come Sunday, spouting April 13.
