On Aug. 25, 2016, in a discussion with Russell Moore in the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission conference held with the Southern Baptist Convention yearly meeting, Stanley stated, вЂњI would personally ask preachers and pastors and pupil pastors within their communications to obtain the limelight from the Bible and right back in the resurrection.вЂќ This is certainly nutty, needless to say, since it is impractical to comprehend ChristвЂ™s resurrection independent of the Bible.
In 2016, in their Easter Sunday message, Stanley stated, вЂњIf you thought to me personally one-on-one, Andy, IвЂ™m maybe not a Christian . but IвЂ™m going to allow you are taking your absolute best shot at persuading us to follow JesusвЂ™–HereвЂ™s the things I wouldnвЂ™t do . I would personallynвЂ™t attempt to persuade you with all the Bible. . I would personally begin with the resurrection of Jesus minus the Bible.вЂќ Once more, that is nonsense that is complete since it is the Bible alone that documents the resurrection and its own infallible evidences.
