  • Pastor Andy Stanley on Why He Quit Saying 'The Bible Says' While Still Loving the Bible

    Christian Post ^ | 07/03/2018 | Michael Gryboski
    North Point Community Church Senior Pastor Andy Stanley recently explained to popular radio host and Messianic Jewish author Michael Brown why he's quit using the term "the Bible says." In an episode of Brown's podcast "Line of Fire" that aired Monday afternoon, Stanley explained why, although he considers the Good Book inerrant, the term "the Bible says" doesn't work with those he's trying to evangelize. "Once upon a time that was very effective in our country. Those days are long gone. But unfortunately, church leaders still want to leverage 'the Bible says,' which is great for people who take the...
  • John Brennan Shouldn’t Be Lecturing America, He Should Be The Focus Of A Congressional Inquiry

    The Federalist ^ | 3/22/2018 | By David Harsanyi
    Former CIA chief John Brennan is a liar. And he’s not the kind of garden variety dissembler that we see in Washington all the time, either. Rather, Brennan is the kind of man who feels comfortable brazenly misleading the American people about an attack on democracy, and then shamelessly lecturing them about civic decency. You may recall, as director of the CIA, Brennan oversaw an operation of illegal spying on a staffer of the legislative branch of the United States government. At least five agency officials under his watch broke into Senate computer files, viewing drafts of a report on...
  • Odd Connections: CGI, Stanley Inc, Analysis Corp, John Brennan

    He is an odd list of connections: CGI, the designer of the Obamacare website and computer system, is the parent company of Stanley, Inc., whose employees (2) along with an employee of Analyst Corp, were investigated for the State Department passport breaches involving said passports of Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barrack Obama. The Analyst Corp employee, one Leiutenant (his name, not rank) Quarles Harris, was reprimanded but not fired. Analyst Corp is a small company of approximately 100 employees at that time. It's CEO was at that time John Brennan, now Director of the CIA. As an side note,...
  • Here’s Why Stanley Black & Decker Is Building a New U.S. Plant.(Bringing Craftsman tools back)

    Fortune ^ | January 5, 2017 | Phil Wahba
    Stanley Black & Decker is opening a new $35 million manufacturing plant in the United States to help it rebuild, and perhaps more importantly "re-Americanize," the Craftsman tool brand it just bought from Sears Holdings. While the extra capacity should help get a once-iconic $2 billion a year line back on its feet, the move also potentially offers Stanley Black & Decker another benefit: shielding it from a potential surge in economic nationalism under President-elect Donald Trump. Though Stanley Black & Decker chief executive James Loree did not mention Trump by name in his comments to Wall Street analysts and...
  • Andy Stanley Defends Teaching Methods Against Charges His Approach Undermines Scripture

    Christian Post ^ | 10/5/2016 | BRANDON SHOWALTER
    Pastor Andy Stanley is defending his approach to preaching amid questions from prominent evangelical leaders who contend his methods undermine the Bible's authority and pave the way for unbelief. In a lengthy article in Outreach magazine on Friday, the pastor of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, responds to his critics and affirms that he believes in biblical inerrancy. What he is doing, he argues, is changing the angle from which he speaks to more effectively engage a post-Christian society, particularly millennials who have left the Church. Controversy arose in light of Stanley's recent sermon series wherein he argued...

    Pastor Andy Stanley says the Bible is too hard to defend Evangelical pastor preaches that the Bible isn’t the foundation for the Christian faith by Lita Cosner and Scott Gillis Published: 22 September 2016 (GMT+10) Andy Stanley has a church network of over 30,000 people in the Atlanta area, and his church was rated the fastest-growing in America in 2014 and 2015.1 Recently, he has been criticized by many evangelicals for saying that we need to take the focus off the Bible and put it on the Resurrection, because he claims that gives us a firmer foundation for our faith....
  • Andy Stanley and the “NEW Hermeneutic”

    The Aquila Report ^ | 9-11-16 | John barber
    Andy Stanley and the “NEW Hermeneutic” Stanley has not dealt persuasively with the so-called obstacle of “The Bible says.” He has only moved the authority for belief to autonomous reason. One wonders, then, what kind of belief Stanley is advocating. There is natural belief in “every drop of rain that falls.” But then there is saving faith, which is the gift of God. This “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Minus the Word of God, Stanley re-presents Thomistic dualism for modern evangelical use: belief is the product of rational process beginning in disbelief.

    The Charlotte Observer/Associated Press ^ | June 23, 2016 | Kristin M. Hall
    Ralph Stanley, a patriarch of Appalachian music who with his brother Carter helped expand and popularize the genre that became known as bluegrass, died Thursday. He was 89. Stanley died at his home in Sandy Ridge, Virginia, because of difficulties from skin cancer, publicist Kirt Webster said. Stanley was born and raised in Big Spraddle, Virginia, a land of coal mines and deep forests where he and his brother formed the Stanley Brothers and their Clinch Mountain Boys in 1946. Their father would sing them old traditional songs like "Man of Constant Sorrow," while their mother, a banjo player, taught...

    Sermon Video 21:24KEY PASSAGE: Deuteronomy 6, 7 SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE: 1 Timothy 6:20 | 2 Peter 3:17-18 | 2 John 1 SUMMARY Our children live in a culture filled with spiritual dangers. The philosophies of atheism, agnosticism, and various other false teachings threaten to lead our kids into error and unbelief, while rampant moral corruption pressures them to succumb to sinful practices. With so much stacked against them, there’s a great need for the influence of godly fathers who love the Lord and know His Word. When the Israelites were about to cross into the Promised Land, they were entering an...

    Health Impact News Editor Comments It has been about 50 days now since a military-style SWAT team arrived at the home of the Stanley family in Arkansas, and removed all seven home-schooled children from the home. The parents have been charged with no crime, let alone been convicted of any wrong doing, and yet the children still remain separated from them, placed in foster care, as the State of Arkansas continues to collect federal funding for each child that has been placed into the foster care system. Read the last update on the Stanley family that Medical Kidnap published here:...

  • Southern Baptists, LGBT activists happily coexist, but for how long?

    Crux ^ | October 31, 2014 | Sarah Pulliam Bailey
    NWhen Southern Baptists convened a national conference here this week to discuss issues of human sexuality, bringing conservative evangelicals and LGBT Christian activists into the same ballroom was a recipe ripe for potential fireworks. Perhaps the most shocking thing was how few fireworks there were. The Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission was clear: Sex is reserved between a man and a woman within the bonds in marriage. And openly gay evangelicals in attendance were equally clear: Homosexuality is not incompatible with Christianity. No concessions were made, but leaders on both sides expressed surprise at how the two...

    President Obama's infamous pledge that those who like their health insurance plans and their doctors, can keep them, even after the implementation of the so-called Affordable Care Act, has already been discredited as an outright lie... However, it is worthwhile to recount another one of Obama's outright lies regarding health care - specifically regarding the late Stanley Ann Dunham's health insurance policy - a blatant lie which the President and First Lady repeated during the 2008 and 2012 Presidential campaigns. The President made the claim that his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, shortly before her death, had been denied health care...

    In this message, Dr. Stanley tells us why Christians face such persecution and how we can respond to it in a godly manner. Despite an ever-present opposition throughout the centuries, Christianity is still growing. It cannot be broken, stopped, destroyed or silenced. Will you be part of its survival or contribute to the attacks against it?

    Both Barack Obama II and Stanley Ann Dunham are invented personas. A male child was born, probably son of Malcolm X and an unknown woman possibly Jo Ann Newman (per Martha Trowbridge). The childs father knew his days were numbered so to protect his only son he arranged with his Muslim and Communist contacts, to have him brought up in Indonesia under the protection of President Sukarno. He was a member of the Presidents extended family and under the direct protection of a high ranking Indonesian special forces officer, Pak Lolo Soetoro (which was probably not his real name). Soetoro...

    AlbertMohler.com ^ | May 1, 2012 | Albert Mohler
    A shot now reverberating around the evangelical world was fired by Atlanta megachurch pastor Andy Stanley in recent days. Preaching at North Point Community Church, in a sermon series known as “Christian,” Stanley preached a message titled “When Gracie Met Truthy” on April 15, 2012. With reference to John 1:14, Stanley described the challenge of affirming grace and truth in full measure. He spoke of grace and truth as a tension, warning that “if you resolve it, you give up something important.” The message was insightful and winsome, and Andy Stanley is a master communicator. Early in the message he...
