Andy Stanley applies his principles of love over law to air traffic control with his radar prophetess, Beth Moore. Meanwhile, Rachel Held Evans and Nadia Bolz-Weber wax elequently on the finer points of feminist airframe design.
Originally published on May 14th, 2015, this came in the wake of Andy Stanley stating that verse-by-verse expository preaching was “lazy,” among other questionable statements. This was too early for such statements like telling parents that attending a small church is selfish.
I am aware that Andy Stanley has apologized for the latter remark, but it is merely one of many critical errors. Stanley is in no position to criticize congregational selfishness when his entire ecclesiology is based upon harnessing the power of congregational selfishness.
