What do you get when you cross the Cows of Bashan with LifeWay’s incessant need for cash? Beth Moore. Beth Moore has poured out more spiritual poison into more Southern Baptist women than any other false teacher in the history of modern Evangelicalism. And not only is she single-handedly responsible for leading untold numbers astray, but you can find her within arm’s reach of pretty much any other false teaching on the planet.
Recently, Francis Chan has been under fire for giving tacit approval to well-known charismatic heretics like Benny Hinn, Mike Bickle, and Todd White — among many others. While Chan generally doesn’t stray too far from the Bible himself, his persistent association with false teachers gives credence to that which is, well, completely apostate. The vast majority of sound bible teachers wrote off Francis Chan if not years ago, at least recently.
Chan was recently at The Send, a conference put on by several outright heretics. We’re not talking people with a few minor differences in beliefs — we’re talking people who teach, preach, and hold to a completely false gospel. These are people who are, as Paul says in Galatians 1:8, anathema. That is, cut off from Christ. If we are to take Paul at his word, we must believe that these false teachers are not true brothers and sisters in Christ but wolves in sheep’s clothing. These would include people like Kenneth Copeland, the modern grandfather of the prosperity gospel, Todd White, Benny Hinn, who has been outed by his own nephew as a total fraud, Mike Bickle, Shawn Bolz, a fake cold reader, and Lou Engle — even referring to them as “bold men of God.” It’s safe to say that Fran was right up in the middle of it.
Echoing John Piper’s famous “Farewell Rob Bell” tweet, one author even wrote an article titled “Farewell Francis,” expressing the long-overdue need to write Chan off. In a half-hearted attempt to save face, however, after much criticism from broader Evangelicalism, Chan responds to his critics and tries to defend his indefensible actions.
Of course, the theologically competent — of which Beth Moore is not — is able to see that despite Chan’s attempt at rationalizing the immense damage he has caused by cozying up to these false teachers, he has fed many sheep directly to the wolves.
Enter Preston Sprinkle — Preston Sprinkle, like Francis Chan, is a Master’s Seminary graduate. Preston Sprinkle is also an LGBT activist and supporter of the “gay Christian” conference known as Revoice. Revoice is a conference that promotes “gay Christianity” and has actually advocated for homosexual Christian relationships and for, of course, calls for an end to the “victimization” of homosexuals, to which they coined the term “sexual minorities.” All in all, Preston Sprinkle is an advocate for “gay Christianity.”
Earlier today, Preston Sprinkle tweeted a defense of Francis Chan asserting that criticizing Chan makes you “less like Jesus.”
Of course, once again, anyone with any theological competency knows that this is absurd, as Paul himself stated, “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8)
Yet, wherever there is heresy, you can find Beth Moore neck-deep in it. Beth Moore jumps in to the conversation to add her two-cents of defense too,
“Nothing can snatch us out of the Father’s hand…” of course, but this only implies that you were in the Father’s hands,
It’s hard to say, but the Bible does say “Do two walk
Beth Moore, whether it be her fanciful tales about meeting a stranger at a bus stop to give her money because “God told her to,” or outlandish dreams of God lifting her up in the air to envision Catholics and Protestants in ecumenical unity or her recent elbow-locking with heretics Joel Osteen, Matt Crouch, and Brian Houston, her hand holding with
