The seeker-sensitive movement, in which Stanley is a major player, seeks to make Christianity as accessible as possible to the largest number of people possible. Stanley has been always been zeroed in on what’s happening in the culture.
Up to now, most seeker-sensitive churches have remained theologically sound on paper while functioning as liberal churches. Twenty years ago when he started North Point in the heart of the Bible Belt, he could not have survived by openly embracing liberalism.
Finally, I listened to Chris Rosebrough’s review of the sermon in the February 16 edition of Fighting for the Faith. I think what’s happening at North Point this month is going to have long-lasting effects on American, and even global, Christianity.
Andy Stanley is easily one of the top five most influential pastors in America, and maybe top 2-3.
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 now sees that it is more costly to deny that a homosexual can be involved in homosexual sin and be a Christian than it is to embrace gay Christianity.
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.

I listened to the download made available by North Point Community Church, which came from the second service and contains a few minor differences compared to the sermon I watched live.
