LGBTQIA-Affirming Pastor Andy Stanley Has A Tremendously Low View Of The Bible And Because Of That Is Attracting Thousands To His Ministry

False teacher Andy Stanley is actually promoting an old second century known as Marcionism, which is why he has no faith in the authority of the Bible

Pastor Andy Stanley is having revival in his ministry, it is growing by leaps and bounds, and he speaks to a full house every time the doors are open. He has ten satellite ‘campus locations’ numbering about 200,000 people every Sunday. Only one problem. Andy Stanley is not weighed down by that cumbersome, old Book known as the Bible, King James or otherwise, and that is striking a chord in people who want a ‘form of godliness’ just without so much power. Swelling words are in great demand here at the end of the Church Age. So just who are all these people flocking to Andy Stanley’s church? People who share his low view of the Bible, and aren’t interesting in being talked out of it.

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:5 (KJB)

In a culture that had high regard for the Bible, the traditional approach held its own. Those days are over. They’ve been over for a long time.” Andy Stanley 2 Opinions 13:13

He doesn’t know it yet, but today is a big day for Andy Stanley for another reason. Today’s the day we add him to our False Teachers archive here at NTEB, and have every expectation that he, sadly, will live up to the confidence we have in him to continue teaching heresy and attempting to destroy your faith the Bible. So with that, let’s take a quick peek into what has qualified Andy Stanley for admission as a false teacher, it will be most enlightening.

  • ANDY STANLEY LGBTQIA+ AFFIRMING: Stanley’s message comes across as a straightforwardly affirming position on homosexuality in the church. He valorizes the faith of homosexuals as head-and-shoulders above the faith of straight Christians. He says, “the men and women I know who are gay, their faith and their confidence in God dwarfs mine. And so not only is there room, there’s plenty of room” for them in the church. He brushes aside what the Bible says about homosexuality as “clobber” verses, as if those texts somehow harm gay sinners. He even suggests that a change of theology is in order if churches can’t welcome gay people into their midst. That’s affirming, right? If it isn’t affirming, what is? SOURCE
  • ANDY STANLEY DOES NOT HAVE THE BIBLE AS HIS AUTHORITY: In his sermons series ‘Aftermath’, Stanley discredits what he labels, “a version of Christianity that relied on the Bible as the foundation of faith.” He appears to be arguing that Christians should not hold to the Bible, but to the resurrection of Jesus. Any Christian leader who questions the reliability and usefulness of God’s Word is either terribly confused or a false teacher. Either way, such a teacher is a dangerous influence. A “version of Christianity” that does not rely on the Bible is not Christianity. SOURCE
  • ANDY STANLEY TEACHES THE HERESY OF MARCIONISM: Marcionism is a heresy that is attributed to an early church figure by the name of Marcion of Sinope. Marcion was the son of a bishop and moved to Rome about 135 AD. Marcion, who was denounced by the early church fathers including Justin, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and Tertullian in the second century, taught a dualistic belief in a distinction between the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament. This is what Andy Stanley is actually teaching when he says things like it doesn’t matter if the Scriptures are true regarding the virgin birth of Christ. He also preached a sermon declaring that we don’t believe in the resurrection because of the Scriptures. SOURCE
  • ANDY STANLEY HAS NO DISCERNMENT: Not only does he support female pastors and preachers in the pulpit, he is very happy to allow fellow heretics like Beth Moore fill in for him when he’s out of town. SOURCE
  • ANDY STANLEY BELIEVES EVOLUTION IS COMPATIBLE WITH CREATION: Andy Stanley believes that God created the world, and that He used evolution to do it. This heresy is known as Theistic Evolution. In theistic evolution, the Bible is regarded as a collection of documents which partially contains God’s Word. The Bible thus contains no authoritative, binding truths, but must be freshly interpreted and corrected for every era and in every situation. Christians who adopt evolution are inconsistent because they are accepting the foundation of the humanistic worldviews. Essentially, they are telling God that they believe Him when He told us about the Virgin Birth, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, but they do not trust Him when He tells us about how He created the world.

Christian, if you’re saved, you got saved because of The Book, and you would be really smart in not letting anyone talk you out of it as your final authority. Andy Stanley has a very low view of scripture, and is attempting to recruit you to join him in his distrust of the Bible. Just say no. Hell, no.

Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church

Please continue to pray for us, and for wisdom for me especially, as we continue taking steps to print the NTEB branded King James Bible for our free Bible and Bibles Behind Bars program. It is exciting and intimidating at the same time. If the Lord has prospered your financially, we ask you to donate to help us continue to send out free Bibles at this level, and even higher than we are at the moment. It takes a lot of prayer, and a lot of resources to do all this. Praise the Lord we are doing it, all of us together, labouring in the Lord’s harvest field. TO THE FIGHT!!!

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. We have a Gospel Billboard program. We are now broadcasting Bible studies, Podcasts and a Sunday Service 5 times a week, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!
