Andy Stanley, son of famous pastor Charles Stanley, is a serial blasphemer and idolater who twists God’s Word — whenever he even discusses it — and uses it to create a false church built around a false gospel and a false Jesus.
Andy Stanly has made a number of dubious claims about the Christian faith and in particular, the Scriptures. Famously stating that Christianity needs to “unhitch” from the Old Testament, he told his audience that the Ten Commandments don’t apply to Christians. He’s flopped on homosexuality — telling the mother of an openly-gay and practicing girl that her daughter was saved. He promotes the idea that even if you don’t believe in Jesus, you can have a better life by following his teachings. And rampages against the Scriptures telling people that they don’t need to feel like they should defend the Scriptures because they aren’t really that important and it isn’t what Christianity rests on.
Stanley has been criticized for his constant attacks on the Word of God and denial that the Scriptures are essential to Christianity, yet he doesn’t stop. Easter Sunday, he doubled down and took it even a step further stating that we “don’t believe in the resurrection because of the Bible.”
Of course we believe in the Resurrection because of the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God and is the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1). Apart from the Scriptures — which the Holy Spirit so graciously gave and preserved for us — there can be no salvation because there can be no knowledge of God apart from His Word.
