Beth Moore a Popular False Teacher
If we haven’t stated it a thousand times, or in case you missed it in the past, Beth Moore is undoubtedly a false teacher. The well-known lady preacher and popular bible-study author, Beth Moore, makes an astonishing declaration–that spending time in God’s Word is not the same thing as spending time with God.
I say “astonishing” acerbically, chiefly because Beth Moore, who spends most of her free time admonishing innocent men to get on their knees to apologize on behalf of other men for mistreating women while holding hands with Marxists, is actually quite known for bellowing out ludicrous assertions about the Scriptures and her (lack of) knowledge about them.
Beth Moore’s Outlandish Claims
Beth Moore, who claims that she receives special, direct, divine revelation from God is dangerous primarily because of her influence in conservative Evangelical circles. If she didn’t run around Southern Baptist leaders and peddle her rubbish in the convention’s flagship store, LifeWay, her rantings would be far less concerning. But the Scriptures admonish us to warn against those who are feeding feverishly among the flock.
Not that Beth Moore has performed any false signs and wonders that could be classified as “great,” but Matthew 24:24 does say,
For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Most recently, she declares in a tweet:
Well, in her world, spending time with God consists of fanciful dreams of being lifted up in the air while being told by God that He’s going to unite all sectors of Christendom, or strange moments of meeting a woman at a random bus stop just to give her a handful of cash because, you know, God told her to go there and stuff.
Of course spending time in Scripture is the same thing as spending time with God. You cannot know God any other way. It’s how he speaks to us (Hebrews 1:1). Yes, you can spend time with Him in prayer as well, and you can spend time with Him in worship. But what she’s saying is essentially the same thing as saying that listening to your parents speak to you is not the same thing as spending time with them. The Scriptures are God’s full and complete revelation to us. It informs all matters of our faith in Him, including our prayer and worship.
Other Reasons to Avoid Beth Moore
Beth Moore also recently joined a handful of well-known charlatans — false teachers already marked by people in her own ranks — Joel Osteen, Matt and Laurie Crouch, and Brian and Bobbie Houston of Hillsong.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”Joshua 1:8-9
