Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. on Monday defended GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump against critics who panned his speech at the school, where he referred to a book of the Bible as "Two Corinthians" rather than "Second Corinthians."

Falwell said on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" that his non-profit school cannot endorse any candidate, but he pointed to his father, the Rev. Jerry Falwell Sr., who took flak in 1980 for backing Republican Ronald Reagan, a divorced Hollywood actor, over Democrat Jimmy Carter, a Sunday School teacher.

After listing several incidents of Trump helping struggling people and businesses, Falwell told host Sean Hannity that "the Bible says by their acts you will know them."

Trump "may not be a theological expert and he might say Two Corinthians instead of Second Corinthians, but all the people he's provided jobs, that's the true test of a person's Christianity, not whether or not they use the correct theological terms."

Jimmy Carter "was a great Sunday school teacher, but look what he did to our country as president," Falwell said.
