Episode 430: Andy Stanley has been the focus of controversy for several years due to his evolving views of Scripture. Recently, a clip from one of his sermons landed on Twitter and has sparked off a new wave of controversy. On this episode I play the clip and respond to it from the Scriptures (much to Stanley’s chagrin) in order to demonstrate the erroneous position he has assumed. Follow along in Acts 2, 17, & 1 Corinthians 15.

All Scripture is God-breathed
Episode 428: Andy Stanley is the most recent example of the downgrade of Scripture with his insistence upon the resurrection above the Bible and claiming “the Bible says” is not an adequate answer in modern culture. But it is becoming a common occurrence for someone to say something like, “The Word of God is Jesus, not the Bible.” Or “the Bible never promised that the Bible was coming.” These & other claims are exposed in this episode as we take a deep dive into 2 Timothy 3.15-4.2, especially focusing on the phrase, “All Scripture is God-breathed” in verse 16.
Scripture & Responding to Assertions of “How We Got the Bible”
Episode 416: Recently, an article was published concerning “How We Got the Bible.” Having done some research on the subject, I decided to respond to the claims being made in that article. I start out with a run through 2 Timothy 3.16 for orientation. Then, I tackle the articles assertions paragraph. As will become evident, many assertions are made with no basis in reality, history, or, most importantly, Scripture.
