If you’re an Evangelical — particularly a Southern Baptist — you could very well be familiar with Beth Moore’s recent tirade against Biblical womanhood. If not, you should read up on it as she’s arguably the most influential woman in all of Evangelicalism. While the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has historically held to complementarianism — that is, the biblical position that God created man and woman equal in status with differing gender roles — many Southern Baptists are now calling for a revolution.
Painting biblical complementarianism as “sexist” and those who hold to it as “power hungry,” Beth Moore doubles — triples down on her rebellion and essentially, just like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, asks “did God really say?”
She starts her diatribe against biblical womanhood as follows and ascribing her unbiblical position to the Holy Spirit. In case you weren’t aware, that’s blasphemy.
Here is where she acknowledges that the Bible actually tells her she’s not allowed to preach, especially from the pulpit, and definitely especially on Sunday mornings to the congregation — yet, she questions it. She wants it to not say what it actually says. This is Satanic at its core, asserting that it’s sexist, power-hungry men who disagree with her preaching.
Then, in typical Beth Moore fashion, she claims she had an “experience” that changed the way she thought about Christianity — that led her to these conclusions. Notice that it wasn’t biblical instruction that led her to think this way — it was her feminist worldview.
And finally, she declares that no matter what, she will continue in her rebellion against God until she dies, and if the SBC won’t allow her, she’ll go somewhere else that will.
And as an added bonus, the gay-affirming feminist lady-preacher, Jen Hatmaker calls Beth Moore a prophet. A prophet. That should speak volumes in and of itself.
