His definition of the true Jesus religion comes from half a verse in Galatians.
In the ESV, Galatians 5:6 in its entirety reads, “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.” In his sermon series, Stanley has repeatedly quoted the NIV’s translation of the second sentence of the verse which reads, “The only thing that matters is faith expressing itself through love.” Stanley is attempting to build a doctrine of Christianity on half of one verse.
Liberalism has always denied essential doctrines of the Christian faith in order to make the faith more palatable to unbelievers.
The problem is that if people don’t believe in the God who has revealed in Himself in Scripture, if they don’t believe in the Jesus revealed in Scripture, they are not in Christ, no matter what they call themselves.
Stanley’s assumption is that Christianity has been corrupted by “Temple Model” thinking since the days of Constantine.
He defines the Temple Model as being controlled by sacred places, sacred texts, sacred men, and sincere followers.
In reviewing Andy Stanley’s sermon (titled Brand: New), Chris exposed how Stanley downplayed the “sacred” in Christianity and that the bible supports the Seeker Sensitive church model.
So, he will say that it doesn’t matter what a person believes as long as they love.And his version of Christianity is one in which it doesn’t matter what a person believes or does, as long as they love their neighbors.In other words, Stanley is embracing theological liberalism.From Fighting for the Faith, FEBRUARY 12, 2015 Don’t Miss The Sermon Review!
