Skip to comments.Aftermath: Andy Stanley Unhitched (Stanley's 3-part series opened the door wide to homosexuality)

...Aftermath: Part 3 was the sermon that got the most attention -- the one where Stanley suggested that you need to "unhitch" your faith from the Old Testament as he insisted the New Testament writers did. To make his point, Stanley taught from Acts 15 and the story of the Jerusalem council.
...If Stanley said the conclusion of the Jerusalem council pertained to Mosaic dietary laws, how did he explain the command to abstain from sexual immorality? Not well.
Stanley said, "If I were to hand everybody a 3x5 card, and I were to say, 'Tell me what you think this [sexual immorality] means or what this means to you, how many different answers would I get? About as many answers as there are cards, right?"
I hope not. There's only one answer to that question. Sexual immorality is any kind of sex or eroticism outside of the covenant of marriage between a man and his wife...
"To send a bunch of Gentiles this, to abstain from sexual immorality, what does this even mean?" Stanley said, "This was a general call to avoid immoral behavior but not immoral behavior as defined by the Old Testament." By what standard is sexuality defined for the church? Stanley went on to explain that it is, "defined by the Apostle Paul who had been teaching in Antioch for two or more years."
"Do you know what the Apostle Paul consistently tied sexual behavior to?" Stanley asked. "Not the Old Covenant. Not the Ten Commandments. The one commandment that Jesus gave us: that you are to treat others as God through Christ has treated you." That's certainly not wrong, but neither was it given any clarity...

Treat others the way Christ treated you.
I never had Christ try to have sex with me anally. Hes actually been pretty much hands off. Some priests and pastors could actually learn a thing or two, being more hands off.
Jesus certainly did not unhitch himself from the old testament. He was an expert on it.
From what little I know of Andy, partly from comments made by a Lesbian supporter, I am sure you are right.
Makes one really wonder what else there is to know about A.S. ???
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
It is my opinion that you can remove the old testament from your history book after the Resurrection of our Savior. This guy is absolutely right. All legalism was destroyed with atonement and propitiation. There is no more legalism left. James was the jealous step broth of the savior. Never read James. We are imputed with righteousness . It was a gift if we accept Jesus as the Son of God ( not David or Joseph) . There is no ambigu8ity is salvation. You either accept Jesus as Son of God or you go to oblivion and non existence. It is what you you were fed at the institutional professional “church” but it is absolute truth. John 3:16-18, Read it and be free.
You are a dangerous nut! Encouraging people to disregard Gods Word!?!
What God’s word? John 3:16? To what What are you referring? You talking about blasphemy of John 3:16? Watch out.
It appears Andy Stanley has decided to follow the New Testament self-proclaimed “prophetess” who Jesus called “Jezebel” and who taught the followers of Christ to commit sexual immorality.
Paul specifically names homosexual lust and sexual activity in Romans 1. He specifically labels such acts as morally worthy of the death penalty.
Jude likewise labels homosexual sex as sexual immorality.
In order to believe in Christ you must believe in his words. If we go to the logical conclusion that the law is dead, then morality is dead and idolatry is allowed. To knowingly and proudly practice sinful behavior after one is saved is to spit in the face of God.
Unhitch from the OT???
Jesus came to FULFILL it.
What was the reason for his late mother’s divorce from Charles Stanley?
Raiderboy is not only wrong, he is dangerously misleading people when he dismisses the Old Testament, ignoring the clear teachings of Jesus.
You are a wolf in sheep’s clothing preaching a false gospel.
You are on the road to hell and trying to take as many with you as you can with your false teaching.
rb does not believe in the Bible.
It’s his opinion that it’s all allegory and fairy tales.
Read his posting history. It’s all there.
You should not worship the Bible. it is a false God. The Bible was not assembled until 330 years after the resurrection by a bunch of priests. They left 3000 “scriptures out including the eye witness book of the disciple Bartholomew and the book of Salomon!! It is full of errors and contradictions and hearsay. It was totally distorted in the king james translation beyond belief. Accept Jesus as the Son of God and quit worshiping the bible.
Please. Tell me what is false? I am not purporting to be a teacher. I have an opinion after study. So do you? Tell me your opinion and don’t bare false witness.
Do you accept John 3:16-18 as the report of what Jesus actually said or is it an error?
