Andy Stanley Says the Apostles’ Creed Was Written so Emperors Could Get Away With Sin

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.

Andy Stanley, who is famous for his sermon “unhitching” Christianity from the Bible, continues to trash Scripture by recently claiming that the Scriptures are nothing but a collection of ancient declarations put together by “superstitious men.” Well, now he appears to be putting his beliefs into practice by publicly rebuking anyone who would claim differently.

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.

Stanley, who has no idea what the Bible says about anything, and no understanding whatsoever of actual church history outside of what the secular world interprets Christian history to be, says that creeds, like the Apostles’ Creed, were written the way they were without mentioning “love” because emperors were evil and wanted to get away with sin.

The problem with that creed along with other creeds is that there is no mention of love. In fact, there’s no mention of behavior at all. You could subscribe to that creed and basically do anything you wanted. There was a reason the creeds were that way. It’s because the creeds were generally signed off on by the Emporer. And the emperors had bad behavior, so the church leaders who were being funded by the emperors had to be very careful what they put into the Christian creeds.

Perhaps Andy Stanley is unfamiliar with Athanasius, who was exiled multiple times not for refusing to put “love” or “behavior” in his creed, but for defending the divinity of Christ which now stands forever in the Athanasius Creed.
