North Point Community Church Senior Pastor Andy Stanley has stated that Christians need to “unhitch” the Old Testament from their faith. In the final part of a recent sermon series, Stanley explained that while he believes that the Old Testament is “divinely inspired,” it should not be “the go-to source regarding any behavior in the church.”
That’s what Marcion said, and the Church rejected it, and him. Put plainly, one CANNOT understand the New Testament without the Old and there is a LOT in the OT that is extremely valuable. Jettisoning it for the sake of some pseudo- Gospel is heresy. Damnable heresy. And Stanley is a damnable heretic.
