Andy Stanley has taught the idea that the Bible can not be defended as Inerrant, Infallible, Inspired, and Sufficient.
He has taken his church and congregation further into heresy and apostasy by claiming that the particulars of the incarnation and deity of Jesus Christ actually are not important. He has said:“If somebody can predict their own death and resurrection, I’m not all that concerned about how they got into the world,”
Christianity doesn’t hinge on the truth or even the stories around the birth of Jesus. It hinges on the resurrection of Jesus.
He is not alone in his heretical views. mere-orthodoxy; a site that is devoted to distorting true Biblical Christianity recently said:
The earliest followers of Christ were not concerned about orthodoxy. They were a people of orthopraxy, following the Way.
The slavish and idolatrous devotion to the principle of non-contradiction had not yet taken hold; questions of what was “true” and “false” did not, among these early sisters and brothers, have the prominence that they were, sadly, to gain in later centuries. Moreover, issues surrounding the doctrine of Christology are incredibly complex and not worth breaking fellowship over. As Jesus said in the Garden of Gethsemane: “I ask that they all may be one.” Where the red letters of the Bible conflict with “Orthodoxy,” Christians should always side with the former. There are many things that Christians need to agree upon. But the divinity of Christ is not one of them.”
Let’s see if God thinks that the Incarnation and Deity of Jesus Christ are important.
