Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. defended Donald Trump's remarks at convocation Monday morning, telling Fox News that Christians should be more concerned about the candidate's personal character than his Biblical expertise.
"He may not be a theological expert and he might say two Corinthians instead of second Corinthians, but when you look at the fruits of his life and all the people he's provided jobs, I think that's the true test of somebody's Christianity not whether or not they use the right theological terms," Falwell told Sean Hannity Monday night.
Falwell introduced Trump before he took the stage to speak before nearly 9,000 students and faculty. The president shared stories that exposed the billionaire's generous side — stories that Trump's campaign has not played up.
He also said Trump reminds him of his late father, Jerry Falwell, who founded Liberty. Both, Falwell said, were politically incorrect and would say whatever was on their minds, but were always willing to help others, especially behind the scenes when no one was looking.
