Andy Stanley, pastor of Northpoint Church in Georgia, is continuing his stampede on the Scriptures. Last week, we reported that Stanley said that Christianity doesn’t depend on the accuracy of Scripture. Stanley, who is famous for his sermon “unhitching” Christianity from the Bible, continues to trash Scripture by claiming that the Christian faith is not dependent on the accuracy of the Bible and that, according to Him, one can know Jesus without Scripture.
This week during his sermon, he fulfilled his promise to continue to trash Scripture by attempting to make the case that the Bible is just a collection of books written by a bunch of superstitious men who didn’t understand modern science and were just making stuff up. You can watch a longer clip of Stanley trashing the Scripture at this link, but below is a short clip, enough for you to catch the drift.
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.
