Up until the 2001 discovery that Brother Stair was constantly walking in the sin of adultery, which tore apart his then Community of believers to half what it was. [at present, more than 95% of those have fled, his wife, daughter, and all the 12 satellite communities have also left] Brother Stair was preaching holiness, righteousness, and repentance unto God. A holiness of the flesh. That we could walk without sin in this life. Sanctification. Brother Stair taught that he was doing just that.
Brother Stair taught that he was without sin in the flesh.
Then the revelation came…
Brother Stair was found to be practicing adultery for as far back as his ministry went. You might say, sex was the reason he got into the ministry. It certainly is in every background story Brother Stair tells about his ‘schooling’ (Ps 1:1, 4-6).
The lie of sinlessness was exposed, so repentance was then preached and we believed Brother Stair to be ushering in an era of repentance after his exposure. So, half stayed on in hopes of finally seeing righteousness work in the Community and not the beatings.
Brother Stair then taught that ‘God made him sin so that God could show the Church that it was in spiritual adultery‘ and that we needed to repent. So what Brother Stair is now teaching, to justify himself, is that his sin was to bring about grace for the church [Rom 6:1].
Somewhere even that changed…
Brother Stair now teaches that ‘The flesh is going to sin, just let it do what it wants.’ [Rom 6:1]
Now, Brother Stair has turned the teaching of grace into, grace to forgive the sins of the flesh. Grace is a license to sin [Rom 6:1].
This is because Brother Stair is blatantly walking in sexual sin daily. So, rather than repenting and stopping his sinning, Brother Stair teaches that sin does not matter to God. He even takes it as far as saying that God needs us to sin. [Rom 6:1]
This is actually not a completely new teaching from Brother Stair, he has been turning that direction since his 2002 revealing. It’s just that now the gate is fully open and he’s waxing worse and worse [2Tim 3:13].
The problem is…
Brother Stair can teach what he wants, but this teaching does not line up with his railing on his congregation for their supposed sins just to mask his own. If sin is natural and expected and allowed — then why bother the Church about their petty gnats while you’re stroking your camel? Apparently, the only one who gets to ‘let the flesh do what it’s going to do’ is Brother Stair and those he wants to do it with [Rom 6:1]. Actually, the reason Brother Stair still preaches against his ‘wicked’ congregations supposed sins is to appear to his financial supporters that he is still preaching holiness and walking without sin. Nothing could be further from the truth. Ask yourself, why does his congregations’ faces tell us a different story than what Brother Stair is saying. It is Brother Stair, after all, that is telling us all that his congregation is not buying what he’s saying. Why is that? And if this is the perfecting ministry that Brother Stair claims it is, where is anyone who has met his approval? Why is the whole of this ministry end in them fleeing or casting them out (excommunication)? Is the end fruit of this ministry life or death? Something to think about.
