Should Pastor Andy Stanley Be Called Out Publicly for His Recent Actions?

That is why Pastor Andy Stanley must be called out publicly for inviting practicing homosexuals to speak at his Unconditional Conference. The fact that these men claim to be committed Christians makes the sin all the more grievous.

I’m speaking specifically of Justin Lee and Brian Nietzel, both of whom are not only openly “gay Christians” but are also “married” to their same-sex partners.

How Critical is Tim Sheets’ Proceed Prophetic Conference to the Survival of America?

Apostle Tim Sheets believes it is going to be one of the most important weekends of the year.

The Proceed Conference, to be held Friday night and Saturday at Sheets’ Oasis Church, will be crucial for not only those in attendance, but those tuning in online to hear what the Lord is speaking to every believer in the body of Christ.

The two-day conference in Middletown, Ohio, is sold out, but those interested can tune in on YouTube, Facebook and beginning at 7 p.m. Friday. Sheets, his brother Dutch and Prophet Chuck Pierce will deliver significant messages to the body about God’s plans for his children for these tumultuous times.
