DEREK PAUL, A BORN-AGAIN FORMER HOMOSEXUAL, REBUKES ANDY STANLEY AND TELLS HIM TO STOP DECONSTRUCTING SEXUALITY AND STOP IGNORING FORMER HOMOSEXUAL CHRISTIANS. Derek Paul says, “Those who have found freedom in Jesus Christ from homosexuality and victory over their previous identity and lifestyle, have become all too familiar with the internal persecution from legacy lukewarm Christianity spouted by the present-day false teachers, false prophets, and, may I say, wolves-in-sheep’s-clothing-pastors.” Derek Paul states, “As an Overcomer [of homosexuality] myself, I ask that born-again Christians would quit choosing to stand idly by or even promote homosexuality and cross-identification because your Savior has and is fulfilling His promises in Scripture in the lives of real people. It is abusive to teach a lesser Gospel to homosexual-identified people.” Derek Paul goes on to say, “have faith that God has the intention and power to set people free from all sexual immorality and expression, not just your choice sins.” Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, says it is a shame before God Almighty that born-again, former homosexuals have to rebuke a so-called “prominent pastor,” a son of one of the most outstanding pastors and pulpiteers in church history, and a graduate of one of the most prestigious theological seminaries in the world — Dallas Theological Seminary — about supporting and affirming the sin and abomination of homosexuality while the so-called “homosexual Christians” who are supposed to be greater than “straight Christians” are still practicing their wickedness and abominations before God, and according to Andy Stanley are apparently the only group of people in the church who can continue in their sins and abominations and still be “greater” than the Christians who are not practicing such iniquities and abominations and who would be kicked out if they practice heterosexual sins such as adultery, fornication, or incest and rightfully so. Whyte says, without fear of successful contradiction, Andy Stanley is religious but lost and has never been born-again. He is demon-possessed. He is a Judas to God, Jesus Christ, and the church of the first order. And he is one of the worst and most blatant false prophets, false pastors, and false teachers in church history. Whyte says for those of you who think he should not call out people like Andy Stanley, Conway Edwards, one of Andy Stanley’s disciples, Karl Lentz, and others about these serious matters, the Bible tells us very clearly in the Old Testament, and the New Testament “Open rebuke is better than secret love” (Proverbs 27:5), and “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear” (I Timothy 5:20). Whyte says he is not trying to redeem Andy Stanley; he believes Andy Stanley is too far gone. But he is trying to warn and save people like Conway Edwards, who knows better than to do this foolishness, and every other WOKE-affirming pastor he can. We all know what happened to Karl Lentz after being repeatedly rebuked and warned by yours truly. Whyte says in closing that it must have been excruciatingly painful for Pastor Charles Stanley to have his son, an Absalom, and a Judas, betray God, Jesus Christ, the Word of God, and even him in the same city where he pastors. This boy should have had the decency to move and plant his “Synagogue of Satan” in San Francisco or elsewhere, particularly if he was so concerned about homosexuals.
A couple of days ago, I noticed ministry friends of mine sharing videos of a well-known pastoral voice, Senior Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church located in Alpharetta, Georgia. After looking around for the video myself, I discovered the video was an excerpt from the Drive Conference at North Point in 2022.
Many people are familiar with this pastor in Georgia. Some of his statements diminishing the authority of Scripture, and his callous jest at Christians who think it more authoritative, led those in the Church to surmise that his issues with biblical authority indicate a much more corrosive theological viewpoint that has not yet been made public.
Then, on January 23rd, a short video dropped on Twitter. In the video, Stanley laid out a general example demonstrating the lack of eagerness of straight Christians to serve in his churches when comparing them to the eagerness of the gay men and women he knows, who would serve. This setup statement has no way of being validated and yet appeared to be a two-fold manipulation technique.
First, it incentivized his congregation to serve, but also to view homosexuals as a more virtuous community by comparison. It appeared as if Stanley was edifying the gay community and promoting the culture to his congregation while degrading his own church for the moment, a persuasive deconstruction tactic, making it easier for them to adopt his subsequent statements.
