DEFINITION

“Website Orthodox” refers to a nefarious Bible-twister or false teacher having an orthodox statement of faith on their website, but ignoring it entirely in their body of work, sermons, books or teachings.

Someone might say, “Rick Warren is Website Orthodox,” meaning what they teach is different than what they technically profess in a doctrinal statement. The term was coined by Pulpit & Pen contributor, Seth Dunn.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

WHAT IS THE DANGER?

It’s very easy to have an orthodox statement of faith or doctrinal statement on a website, and false teachers regularly use the tactic of pointing people back to the website whenever their orthodoxy is challenged. In truth, their “website orthodoxy” is mere cover for their theological confusion.

EXAMPLE

In 2016, Andy Stanley preached a series of messages that attack (explicitly) the sufficiency of Scripture and (implicitly) the inerrancy of Scripture. This followed up on a series of anti-Bible interviews, lectures, and comments. When challenged widely throughout evangelicalism, Stanley and the staff at NorthPoint church have repeatedly pointed people back to the NorthPoint Church website, which purports a high view of Scripture.
