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.

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.
