Q and a questions
On Sunday, the man who was one of Tulsa’s most high-profile ministers before he became one of its most controversial, told audiences watching a movie about his evangelical fall from grace that he continues a search for answers.More than 15 years after renouncing a belief in hell and being branded a heretic for doing so, he understands when people have difficult questions.That happened more than once during Q-and-A sessions following “Come Sunday,” a Netflix film about Pearson that more than 400 watched in special screenings at Circle Cinema ahead of its Friday debut on the streaming service.As one woman, who described herself as German, asked in one auditorium: “If there’s no hell, where did Hitler go?
