If nothing else I’ve written validates John MacArthur’s criticism of Beth Moore, this should. Bethel Church is the worst of the worst when it comes to charismatic cults and false prophets and apostles.
Bethel Church in Redding, CA is pastored by Bill Johnson who claims to be an Apostle — that is, he claims Apostolic authority just like the twelve men during Christ’s time on Earth. Bethel Redding, like all cults, is filled with aberrant, unbiblical teachings and doctrines of demons, including false manifestations of the Holy Spirit, grave sucking, and the Prosperity Gospel.
The Prosperity Gospel is a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ that teaches that Jesus’ primary purpose for his life, death, burial, and resurrection wasn’t to atone for sins but to make people who have enough “faith” healthy and wealthy. This false gospel carries with it several other false teachings such as positive confession, which is the ability to speak things into existence the way God does.
Bethel Redding is a hotbed of false apparitions, regularly blaspheming the Holy Spirit by attributing the works of men and demons to Him. One such notable occurrence which happens regularly is Bethel’s “glory clouds.” Glory clouds, they claim, are a manifestation of God during their worship, when, in fact, not only is it unbiblical, it has been thoroughly debunked.
Bethel’s leading “Apostle” is Kris Vallotton, a thoroughly aberrant false prophet who preaches a false gospel — the prosperity gospel — and affirms the Roman Catholic Church. Here, he “apologizes” to Beth Moore on behalf of “male leadership” for John MacArthur’s truth.
This isn’t the first time Beth Moore has had men groveling at her feet pleading for forgiveness on behalf of other men. Just over a year ago, Moore had one of the musicians from the band performing at her event grab the microphone and get on his knees and plead with her even though he didn’t do anything.
This represents a generation of male leadership who have been castrated by women in the Church — it is a sure sign of God’s judgment. When men around the world are groveling at the feet of a false prophetess like Beth Moore, we can rest assured that God’s judgment on the visible Church is ramping up.
