"Ergun Caner"

Someone, in the spirit of satire, has been impersonating Ergun Caner, pointing out the "misstatements" made by Caner over the years as well as the hypocrisy coming from Liberty University's leadership and Caner's supporters. Here is one example video from his Vimeo account (he also has a YouTube account with a few of the videos):

Ergun Caner #5- Sometimes I Wonder About Charles from Dr. Ergun Caner on Vimeo.

The best part is at the 2:50-mark, where "Ergun" responds to a question about John 6:44:
"Well first, your Calvinist friend probably changed the syntaxes and the emphases and the Greek and taken from the Hebrew plural. For example, the regular...the layman...would say 'no man can come to me except the Father which hath sent Me draw him.' What Jesus was actually saying here was 'no man can come to Me except the Father which hath sent me draw him and I will raise him up on the last day.' You see...this is John 6:44...John 6...if you think about it...half of six would be three...John 3...then you bring the six back in...John 3:6...but it's not John 3:6, and see that's a common error. You would add the one between the three and the six...John 3:16, you see? I wasn't aware of that interpretation either until I had gone to seminary..."
