The following link will take you to the web site giving a short introduction to the story concerning how “A Civil War Jewish doctor’s life is transformed when he encounters a mortally injured Christian boy on the battlefield of Gettysburg. Torn between his Jewish religion and the profound words of a dying boy, Dr. Max Lewis Rossvally must come to terms with his spiritual conflict. Beautifully crafted and filmed, this is a real-life story of strength, courage and true inspiration.”http://www.rossvallythemovie.com/

‘Andy Stanley, a pastor widely discredited by orthodox, Bible-believing Christians as a false teacher, has ignited a raging controversy with his latest remarks on homosexuality and faith. Stanley’s “seeker-sensitive” approach prioritizes attracting non-believers to church over upholding traditional doctrine, diluting the essence of Christianity to appease a wider audience. This has drawn fierce criticism from those who see Stanley’s views as a deviation from the true teachings of Christianity.
In a recent sermon, Stanley proclaimed that homosexuals who “loved Jesus” despite God’s rejection of them have more faith than most Christians and that Christians should learn from them. This asinine assertion, along with Stanley’s disregard for traditional teachings and the authority of the Bible, is a blatant display of his apostasy.
Stanley’s views and approach to ministry have rightfully faced heavy criticism as he is merely promoting his personal aberrant beliefs as gospel. Meanwhile, some homosexuals have praised Stanley for his innovative views on biblical interpretation, theology, and the role of the church, perceiving his approach as more “inclusive.”
However, beneath the surface of the controversy lies a more sinister issue at Stanley’s North Point Church. Not only does Stanley take a lenient, unscriptural approach to sin, but it has recently come to light that he employs an openly lesbian individual who leads the church’s LGBTQ ministry. You can read about that here.
But now, it has come to light that Stanley has been openly promoting open and active homosexual lifestyles within his church and he has been doing so through some very sinister people. Andy Stanley is repeatedly hosting an openly practicing homosexual who is openly living with his homosexual partner. His name is Brian Nietzel.
Brian Nietzel, according to his own biography found on his website, is living in Atlanta with his “partner Dan.” A look at photos on Nietzel’s Facebook page confirmed that he is still openly and actively in a homosexual relationship.
These homosexuals, as you can see from the image above, were “married” in 2021 with the wedding being performed by Amy Hayes, a former staff member for Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries.
Brian is the founder of Renovus—which we’ve written about in several previous articles—a ministry dedicated to advancing queer theology and homosexual affirmation within the Church. According to Brian’s website, he says he has known two things all of his life: “Jesus is my hero,” and “And I’m gay.” Brian says that for much of his life faith and sexuality were divided, but that “through a season of new conversations with God, I came out knowing my peace as a gay Christian man.”
We can all rest assured that whoever Brian was having “conversations” with, it certainly wasn’t God and what he teaches and believes certainly did not come from God’s word.’https://disntr.com/2023/02/03/andy-stanley-repeatedly-hosts-man-living-in-open-homosexual-relationship-for-lgbtq-kids-conferences/
‘Izzy Montague was one of many parents who raised concern when her son’s primary school began promoting LGBT issues to children as young as five, not allowing parents to opt their children out. When she met with the school’s executive headteacher, another teacher attending the meeting wore a t-shirt with the provocative message: “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet?”
Parents also say that they were misled with incorrect statements of law when they challenged the school on the issue of the Pride event. Izzy has launched legal action against the school on the grounds of direct and indirect discrimination, victimisation and a failure by the school to uphold its statutory duty.
Izzy said, “It was like being bullied. They stopped treating me like any other parent but were antagonistic towards me. I believe that they retaliated against me by unreasonably excluding me from the premises, victimising my child and not taking my safeguarding concerns seriously.”‘https://christianconcern.com/cccases/izzy-montague/
Romans 1:24-27 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
God will save all “whosoever” wills that will turn from their sins in repentance and come to Him by faith BUT He died for their sins and if they will not repent of their sins he will NOT save them. Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
‘A man wearing a plain yellow t-shirt that read “Jesus Saves” at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN was recently approached by mall security and told that he would have to remove his t-shirt if he wants to continue shopping as it was deemed “offensive” to some shoppers. Not only is there no dress code in the mall that would prohibit the wearing of such a garment, but it is clear that the actions of mall security were a blatant violation of the state’s discrimination laws.’https://disntr.com/2023/01/17/mall-of-america-security-orders-man-to-remove-christian-t-shirt-or-leave-the-property/
This is the testimony of Keith Becker as told on Pacific Garden Mission’s Unshackled. “Keith had his own plans for his life, but bankrupt and brokenhearted, he starts to wonder where he’s going wrong. From rebellion to bending the knee, to devastating tragedy, Keith saw God’s power turn his family’s story into a powerful ministry.” John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

There are a lot of religious teachers I have never heard of and Kevin Young was one of them until now.
‘Kevin Young, an up-and-coming false teacher among Evangeleftists, regularly uses progressive talking points to advocate for radical anti-biblical positions. Young believes that Sodom and Gomorrah’s destruction was not related to sodomy but rather due to the lack of hospitality. Such scripture twisting has led to such bad conclusions as the idea that Jesus and Paul were proponents of “Gender Fluidity”.’https://protestia.substack.com/p/evangeleftist-kevin-young-tells-bible
More on Kevin may be found at https://christianresearchnetwork.org/2022/12/10/a-new-false-prophet-is-gaining-popularity-among-us-his-name-is-dr-kevin-m-young/
Kevin’s personal website is https://kmyoung.com/ and also at https://kevinyoung.substack.com/
Young lists Cedarville University and Dallas seminary as schools he has attend or graduated from but whether they applaud his teachings or not is not known by this blogger.
From what I have read of his teachings it is best to stay as far away from Kevin Young and his teachings.
2Corinthians 6:11 ¶ O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. 12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
