When Stanley is challenged on the previous issue, he gets antagonistic.

Stanley has a book with some very questionable teachings.

Stanley’s teachings as to why God became human are very troubling.
Andy thinks pastors should stop using the phrase, “the Bible says,” so as to not put off skeptics.
Stanley’s new book about “love, sex and dating” leaves a lot to be desired.
Stanley had a new sermon series based on half of a verse, and which claims Christianity has been corrupted by “being controlled by sacred places, sacred texts, sacred men, and sincere followers.”
More recently, Stanley says you will live a better life if you just follow Jesus’ teachings, even if you don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God.
So now let’s look at the most recent incident.
According to an article in the Christian Post, Andy Stanley thinks that “Churches Should Be ‘Safest Place on the Planet” for Gay Youth.”
Really? A “church,” i.e., a Christian assembly, is a place for Christians to meet and NOT a place to aid and abet sinners. If “gay youth” come into the assembly, they should be told in no uncertain terms that homosexual behavior is a sin, and that one cannot seriously claim to be a Christian while remaining in abject rebellion against God by ignoring what He says about sexual immorality in general and homosexual behavior specifically. If the “gay youth” has no intention of repenting of their sin, then they are not interested in the Christian faith. One must change their identity from being “gay” to being “Christian” — they can’t be both. Besides, it isn’t as if there is a large number of “gay youth” which will even be interested in church — the total population of people claiming to be “gay” is only 2-3%!
