Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last several months, you’re aware of the controversy in Evangelical circles surrounding Beth Moore and her continual tirade against Biblical womanhood. Moore, arguably the world’s worst exegete in Evangelical circles, regularly defies God’s commands to stay low in the Church, not drawing attention to herself, and usurps the man’s role as preacher and teacher, not only to women, but to men.
Moore recently preached a sermon at Andy Stanley’s megachurch in Atlanta on a Sunday morning — on Mothers’ Day — which drew the attention of many. While Beth Moore, having a massive appeal to the carnal world — because she preaches from the flesh rather than Scripture — has a massive following. Currently, over 800 thousand followers on Twitter. That’s more than the top three Southern Baptist leaders, Al Mohler, Russell Moore, and JD Greear put together. She is undoubtedly a woman of influence — the jezebel the Church tolerates (Revelation 2:20).
Yet, while prominent Evangelical outlets are calling the famous evangelist and Protestant hero, George Whitefield’s salvation into question, these same people are silent on Beth Moore’s continuous rebellion against God and his commandments. For consistency’s sake, one must also ask the question: Is Beth Moore Really a Christian?
I mean, she despises God’s call on her life to submit to and learn from her husband while remaining silent in the Church (1 Corinthians 14:34, 2 Timothy 2:12).
While the Scriptures call on wives to be a helper to their husbands, Beth Moore actually takes on the role of husband and has her husband serve her while she does this.
Then she has a male member from her worship band on tour with her take the stage, get on his knees, and apologize on behalf of all men for sexual immorality.
This is all indicative of a woman who hates God’s word and desires to twist it to suit her own agenda. Should we continue to allow her to infect the lives and minds of the Church? Should we not be calling her out, labeling her a false teacher from the top down, and avoiding her at all costs? Yet, Southern Baptist leaders continue to platform her and make her rebellious call heard all over the world.
If someone continues in unrepentant sin, should we consider them as brothers and sisters in Christ? Or should we purge them from among us?
I think 1 Corinthians 5:13 answers that question.
