I can see why people don't like this.. it's because they don't understand what the ministry is all about.
Have you ever judged someone or something so completely based on what you first saw? You didn't talk to the person, you didn't know their story and you certainly didn't understand them; but once you did, you realized how wrong you were? Well I know a lot of people misunderstand Andrew Wommack and this article definitely takes what he says out of context. Andrew comes from a place of genuine, Godly love and he is just trying to help people be truly fulfilled in life. Andrew is probably one of the most kind and respectable men on this earth, so please don't judge someone you don't know, as well as the ministry and the people in it. As for the "unaccredited" school, there is a reason for that. So that the ministry focuses on the Bible for what it is and what it says, which is of grace and love, rather than having to fulfill certain other little requirements like math that doesn't have anything to do with the Word of God.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and God gives us a free will, but if you don't like to be judged then don't go judging either. Andrew does not judge an individual as "immoral", just the lifestyle or choice; he is simply stating what's written in the Bible. Most can agree that cheating on your partner or lying or stealing is immoral, but that doesn't define the person. Maybe someone was starving, or in a bad situation and couldn't afford food, nobody would blame the person for stealing some bread, but that doesn't change the fact that the action was still illegal. Andrew recognizes that and I will admit, sometimes it's hard to hear that when a lot of controversial things are coming out of his mouth. But that's why its so important to understand what his message is rather than hearing "gay... immoral" and just jumping to conclusions. And anytime there is an incomplete or broken up quote, don't always trust it.
