The following testimony was submitted to Pulpit & Pen  for publication:

My name is Lauran.  I am a Southern Baptist from Tennessee.  I walked the aisle to accept Jesus at age 5 but I believe I was truly saved 12 years ago at the age of 21.  I am currently the women’s Bible study leader at our church as well as the pastor’s wife.  I have broken free of Beth Moore.

I grew up attending a flagship Southern Baptist Church in Tennessee.  It was and is one of the most vibrant churches in the convention; its former and current pastors have been the President of the Southern Baptist Convention and both served on the Baptist Faith and Message Committee.  At this faithful church, the Bible was proclaimed as God’s inerrant word.  Growing up in a church like that, I was often involved in Bible study.  One of my favorite Bible study authors was Beth Moore.  I was heavily involved in her studies for years.  I have seen her speak live multiple times, done countless numbers of her studies and own tons of her books.  I’ll never forget the day five years ago when my husband informed me that Beth Moore may not be a sound teacher.

My husband had stumbled across the profile on Beth Moore at the Christian Apologetics Research Ministry (CARM) website.  Incredulously, my Baptist husband read Matt Slick’s negative critique of Beth Moore.  He was surprised to see that CARM, one of the most trusted online sources for Christian doctrine, did not recommend participating in Beth Moore studies.  He knew she was the darling of Southern Baptist women’s studies and a best-selling author at LifeWay.  After studying the article, my husband couldn’t help but agree with Slick’s assessment.  The evidence was right there.  Beth Moore was not a sound teacher.  Sheepishly, he informed me that Beth Moore may not be a sound teacher.  I was aghast!

“What?!” I exclaimed.  “No Way! Beth Moore is a godly woman.” I had been growing in my knowledge of the word in leaps and bounds over the past few years.  I had even attended Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary for a degree in Christian education.  It had never been brought up to me in my long Baptist life that Beth Moore, this trusted woman, and leader, might actually be a poor teacher or even a wolf in sheep’s clothing!  I had always just assumed that what she was teaching was biblical. All of the churches I had ever attended had endorsed and done her studies as part of their women’s Bible studies. How could they keep doing her studies if her teaching and actions were unbiblical?!

There was only one way to answer this question.  I had really begun to study the Scripture heavily over the past few years and had really begun thirsting for knowledge and wisdom according to the word.  I had to learn for myself, by studying Beth Moore and comparing her to God’s word, if she was truly a sound teacher or if my husband was on to something.  Every teacher should be compared to the Word to see if she measures up.  I researched Beth Moore for countless hours.  I watched her teaching clips online.  I checked multiple reliable sources, comparing all I found to Scripture.  It led me to a shocking conclusion -Beth was not teaching sound doctrine.

It felt as though I was breaking up with an old friend. Beth Moore and I had to part ways. Some old things I had heard her say over the years kept coming to my mind. I specifically remember the bizarre story that she shares about the handicapped man in the wheelchair. Apparently God “told her” she needed to go and brush the man’s hair. That was the first time I remember hearing about her “special revelations” from God.

A more recent example was when God gave her a vision while sitting on her porch and a message to give to the whole body of Christ; she was supposed to tell the church this message, “my bride is paralyzed by unbelief.”

According to Beth, she is God’s divine instrument and He is giving her extra-biblical revelation to give to the whole church. The errors just continued from there. Aside from all the exegetical errors in her teaching and the extra-biblical revelations, she promotes the dangerous mystical practice of contemplative prayer. She claims Catholicism is part of the Christian church! She has no problem teaching men.  She has even recently aligned herself with Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen, attending and speaking at conferences at his Lakewood church.

Beth Moore seems to be on a downward slope and she is getting farther and farther away from Scripture.  Let me remind you that there are parts of her teaching are biblically sound.  Additionally, the statement of faith at her church and her Living Proof mission statement make her appear as if she is biblical.  Remember how Satan works.  Just a little bit of false teaching, sprinkled in with a lot of biblical truth, can look good to the masses but it’s ultimate a clever deception.  As Paul told the Galatians, “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” (Galatians 5:9)

Finding out that one of my favorite Bible study authors was a false teacher was bad enough.  However, what was worse was the reaction I got from others when I shared the news.  When I found out the truth about Beth Moore, I absolutely could not keep it to myself and let other women get swept away in her personality cult and false teachings.  I wanted to obey Paul’s command to the church – “take no part in the unfruitful deeds of darkness but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11)   Yet, many of my Christian friends did not want to listen to my warnings.  I received comments such as “you are hurting the body” and “you are hurting women.”  I was told that I was wrong and judgmental. These comments were not just coming from my local Christian circle of women but even by leaders at very large Southern Baptist churches.  A youth pastor at the flagship church called me divisive!  I wonder if he has even read any Beth Moore books.  Who was I to call out a well-known teacher like Beth Moore?! Almost everyone seemed to immediately jump to Beth’s defense without even checking the facts or looking at Scripture! Even close family and friends were very resistant and offended at the idea that Beth Moore was not a sound teacher. I knew there was no turning back, I had to take a stand even if it meant I was hated and shunned.  That’s part of deciding to follow Jesus.  As the old hymn goes, “No turning back, no turning back.”

If you are a woman who has discovered the truth about Beth Moore and chosen to speak out, be prepared to be shunned by the women and men at your church and possibly even your pastor.  Though it seems more people have recently begun to acknowledge her errors, the vast majority of women are still on the Beth Moore band wagon simply because they have always done her studies at their church.  People don’t like to question what they have always done. Beth Moore has earned her spot at the top of every Christian book store and in every SBC church as part of the ladies’ bible studies.  When tradition is bucked by Scripture, it is never received well; just look at the example of Jesus and the Pharisees!  I feel the teaching commonly accepted by women today is exceptionally bad.  Maybe it’s due to the fact that, as women, we like to connect with people on an emotional level; we like to hear people that touch us and motivate us.  Beth Moore certainly uses her charismatic personality to do just that. She uses her personality to her advantage so that she can connect with women and in turn sweep them away.

I pray if you are a woman reading this article that you will not just take my word for it but will be discerning and seek the Scriptures and “test the spirits” as it says in 1 John 4:1 to see if Beth Moore lines up with God’s word or if she is leading women astray.  If you do, you will soon find she falls far short.  No one is a perfect teacher, but Beth Moore is a bad teacher, and one who claims to be a prophet.

As the women’s bible study leader at our church, I will not allow or promote any Beth Moore studies. We as teachers are held more accountable as to what we present to our sisters in Christ as acceptable, sound doctrine.  My prayer in sharing this testimony with you is that women everywhere would not allow themselves to be swept away by Beth Moore or any other teacher that simply appeals to their emotions but does not conform to every part of Scripture. Let us break free from Beth Moore choose to only sit under those who rightly divide the Word!

    I would not come to the same conclusion. Is it because God gave Beth an ‘extra biblical word’ that she is being refused after years of dedication to encouraging women in a teaching ministry? While there is certainly need for discernment when someone shares a ‘prophetic word’, a prophetic word from someone who has earned your trust and helped you mature should not be thrown out simply because it was a direct revelation from God to one of us. (1 Corinthians 14:29 ) There are woman prophetess mentioned many times throughout the Bible. Anna in Luke for one. People sometimes use the verse of warning in the book of Revelation (22:18) about not adding to ‘this letter or book’ to somehow mean we should now disregard all the previous scriptures in the other letters or books of the Bible that indicate the proper handling of prophecy is a normal part of a Christian life. (Like 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21) NKV 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things;) I do find it quite disturbing that in our time we now have so many crazy things going on out there in the name of ‘prophecy’. But this does not change what the Bible instructs us to do about it. God has not changed and He most certainly still speaks. This is why these instructions were still necessary for the New Testament church (us). I for one thank God for Beth Moore and her reputation of well grounded discernment. I personally respect her life of earnest commitment to the studying Gods word and giving her life to helping and encouraging women in the body which I for one have benefited from. What I would give to have chosen as well as she did sooner in my life. I think Beth like Mary chose to sit at His feet and learn while Martha and many of us worried about many other things.

    The Lord has used Beth a couple of times in my life in extraordinary ways. Most importantly to help me see that faith in the simple gospel was the only thing that works to produce life and hope in me. She surely is anointed to speak the truth when you end up free. As much as I’ve listened to teachers and preachers try to ‘lead people to the Lord’. She is one of the few that gives the simple message of faith in Jesus in a way that landed in my heart with its life giving effect. I ask we would all be slow to discard a Christian sister and teacher over doctrine disputes. Especially someone who has labored to commit her life to the cause of Christ. I would think surely this would have to be as great an error as any she is accused of. I hope we all learn to grow together more and more striving to keep the peace with one another. In love.

    In the past I have probably done about 7 Beth Moore studies. I always wanted our church to give us a little variety of different teachers; but everyone new study was hers. I enjoyed them, but did feel that if I ever had a disagreement, I could never bring it up because people would defend her to the end. I also stopped doing Bible studies at our church, because I felt like at the end of the day, I was getting to know Beth Moore more each day, & not Christ. If you have ever done her study, you know what I am talking about. She talked about herself in almost every paragraph! So she felt like a best friend, but being a busy mom, I just wanted more Biblical study & less time reading about her messing up her floor or flying on this plane or her daughters did this or that….By the way, reading these comments – I don’t know too much about Calvin – you sparked my interest! I think I will check-out his stuff – must be some good Biblical teaching I am guessing!! Thanks!

    While your points may be true, they are divisive. Be careful with pride and remember that whether or not you agree 100% with her doctrine, she is saved and you will be spending eternity with her. How do I know? Because she is bearing fruit, good fruit. And if you think that showing compassion to another in need is wrong, some may question your fruit. This is an example of why the unbelieving world wants nothing to do with Christianity. I am embarrassed for the church when I read things like this. Let me guess, you are shaking your head in pity for me, “oh another lost Christian soul in need to embrace true Christianity.” Ummmm, no.
    If true Christianity means worshiping John Calvin and his teachings, I’d rather pass. I follow Christ, not John Calvin or John McArthur but CHRIST ALONE!

      Did not Jesus come to divide??? Like 12:51

      Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! 52 From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against.

      53 ‘Father will be divided against son
      and son against father;
      mother against daughter
      and daughter against mother;
      and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law
      and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’[a]”

      You are being deceived. You are being led by a woman who listens to Satan. She is not “special.” She has no greater connection to Jesus than you and I. She is teaching to men which is UNBIBILICAL. That alone should be a warning sign. She says she hears from Jesus all the time. How do you know that for a fact? You just going to take her word for it? While she rakes in millions of dollars from her books? How much did Paul make in writing the NT? Or Peter? Or John? They made nothing. They went to a cross and died for their beliefs.

      You’re being duped.

    The bible does say we are to judge and hold accountable those who profess to be believers. It also says that teachers will be held to a higher standard of judgement because of their potential to cause another believer to stumble. In the same bible it teaches us not to judge one another, to be wise and humble in our correcting of another believer, and let our motivation be love. If you have a problem with someone’s teaching enough to make it a public matter – go to the person first and with the goal of reconciliation for that person with God – speak to them from your heart and humbly bring up what you believe to be sin in their life. Use scriptures in context. This article seems legslistic, judging, and lacking context, grace and wisdom. It almost seems like a very legalistic male pastor wrote it and under the guise of an anonymous “pastor’s wife” published it. Be careful! It was for freedom that Christ set us free – not so we could be bound up in the pharisaical practice of elevating ourselves and our theology over someone else by making websites that use up most of their words “calling out” “false” prophets.

    • Charles 2 years ago

      She’s teaching men. That is unbiblical. She’s not even teaching scripture. It’s all stories she supposedly “heard” from God. How do YOU know that? Because she’s so nice? If you will fall for her teaching you will fall for the Anti-Christ because he’s going to be even more slick than her.

    One thing I’ve learned from my personal walk with Christ is that when the Holy Spirit reveals itself it is beautiful. It is there as a guide, a counselor and a friend. If I’m compelled to go comb a homeless man’s hair how is that different if I’m compelled to pray for a stranger? What about the times I don’t know what to say in prayer but I know the Holy Spirit will give me the words when I’m talking to ppl about Christ. I do know one thing, praying over our leaders (Trump) is one thing and accepting their behavior is another. The Evangelical movement is in trouble. Since I know for sure Beth Moore’s Opinion about Trump is the same as mine, he’s nuts, I would also like to point out that anyone who opposes Trump is a target within the Evangelical community. I would do further research on this Mike Slick character. As men would encourage each other by supporting other men who enjoy controlling their women bc you know The Old Testament and furthermore encourage their women to dislike other women… good grief the pattern of evil is so easily visible here. All in all, Beth Moore does not side with the Evangelical movement regarding the ungodly precious leader and has been scrutinized by other men pointing out the fact that women shouldn’t preach. Period. Welcome to being a devils pawn, of course, it didn’t start with you, it started with your husband, your leader, your superior, your man who enticed you to go after another sister. Be careful sister, you have your own will too and this whole, “but the snake made me eat it and we both ate from the same apple ” as we have learned from the beginning just doesn’t cut it with God. Both of you are equally responsible for bashing a sister in Christ. Either way, everyone be well, pray, pray and then pray for more of Godly wisdom. The Holy Spirit awaits you.

    • Roger 2 years ago

      I won’t agree or disagree with any comments. But just to clarify, the Holy Spirit is a person. The third person in the Trinity. Therefore, referring to the Holy Spirit as itself or it is incorrect. The Holy Spirit is is a person.

  11. J F Matuch 2 years ago

    You would be wise to read the parable about the unjust Stewart who Jesus commanded not because of his underhanded managing of his employer’s accounts, but because he worked together with others for the good of those involved. Jesus said “the people of this world are better at networking than the people of the kingdom.” He also said to the disciples who reported that others weren’t ministering the same way as they were, “those that are t against us are for us.” Let Beth Moore reach those with the Gospel and practice I Corinthians where it says “Judge nothing til the appointed time.” The Christian church and message to the world is being “bitten and devoured” from within. Leave it to God.

      Are we not to have a discerning spirit? Are we not to be Bereans and go to the Word and test whether what is being taught is truth? Paul called out many false teachers. Stop thinking we can’t call out false teachers who make millions of dollars and live in mansions (Beth Moore does, see here:

      Beth Moore is a false teacher. She is being duped by Satan because she practices contemplative prayer (New Age) and she is embracing uniting with the Catholic Church. Jesus told the Father to unite us in spirit and in TRUTH. If Beth Moore is teaching men she is being unbiblical. If she gets a “word” from the Lord it needs to be tested. If she is selling books and making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year then how is that biblical? We have the Bible to discern and call out false teachers. Just because she’s “nice” doesn’t mean she’s leading people astray. The Church at Laodicea mixed the truth with error, just like every false teacher does. Of course they teach some truth, but they mix it with lies and gnosticism.

  13. Kelly 2 years ago

    Thank you for posting this. My wife has had a very similar experience from fellow Christians and even family members who are Christians. They will defend to the nth degree the heretical things being taught from the pulpit because “that’s our pastor” and “we have to be unified at any cost” and “judge not lest ye be judged”. How can you be unified with people who teach or believe false things about Christ, the gospel and God’s Word? The biggest problem in today’s church is lack of discernment. Anything a pastor or teacher says is taken at face value because people don’t know God’s Word well enough to compare. And they assume that the person speaking must be right because they have a seminary degree. I pray that people will wake up and stop assuming everything they hear is true and start comparing it to God’s Word. And yes, that includes Beth Moore and others like her as well as this article’s author. Truth matters and there are people out there who are desperate to deceive.

  14. Stephanie 2 years ago

    Lauren – thank you for writing what I’ve believed for years. As the ladies teacher in my church, we let go of most all life way studies, but especially Beth Moore years ago after James. We instead did a study of every woman in the Bible using only the Bible as our guide. We watched as our ladies grew in their own thirst for knowledge and not the regurgitation of someone else. I commend you for your bravery in speaking your heart and your convictions.

  15. Jennifer 2 years ago

    I found this through googling “Beth Moore false teacher”. I was reading about someone else claiming that because of her recent stance on Trump. In response to this article- I think it would be appropriate to provide more concrete evidence when referring to someone as a false teacher than was presented here. There were only two videos available as evidence of that claim. Both did no such thing. What I’m more worried about is the seemingly Pharasitical nature of finger pointing going around these days. Does it make one feel more spiritual, or “right on” to point out others wrongs?? I’m all for biblical basis for life, and hold leaders to high standards, but if you are going to point fingers, you’ll have to do better than this. And yes, if your writing an article about such, I expect the author to provide those researched examples!

    1 John 4:1 says to test the teaching against the truth of Gods’ word…
    Acts 17:11 says to search the scriptures..,
    2 Thessalonians 5:21 says test everything that is said…
    Matthew 7:15-18 speaks about “sheep’s clothing”
    Luke 6:39 speaks of the blind leading the blind…
    Acts 20:29-30 speaks on false teachers
    1 Timothy 6:4-5 speaks on teaching in error…

    The Salvation message is the first step in beginning to understanding Gods’s truth.
    We must believe that we are in desperate need of a Savior, believing that God sent his one and only son Jesus to come to earth as man to die for the sins of all humanity.

    We must believe that we are sinners deserving of death in hell for all eternity.
    We must believe that God is the only true and living God of the Universe, Creator and Author of everything.

    We must repent ( turning away from how we once thought and lived) to believing what Jesus Christ did on the Cross of Calvary, dying for all mankind, once and for all times, and believe that he rose from the grave three days later as scripture says, alive forevermore, and ask him to be Lord of all lords and King of all kings over our lives.
    There is only one way to God, and that is through his son Jesus Christ.

    Upon our conversion (Salvation) God gives us a new heart, and he begins a work in us that he doesn’t complete until we meet Jesus face to face. Phil 1:6

    When we draw close to God, by reading his word, and by praying for guidance and understanding, he draws close to us James 4:8
    The more we read his word, the more we learn, and that results in having an insatiable appetite for the truth of his word, God continues to reveal his truth to us mightily.

    Those who are truly born again bought by the precious blood of Jesus Christ have the Holy Spirit in-dwelling in them, and having Gods word in our hearts and in our minds, we can be better prepared when we hear someone speak about the word of God that is in error.

    We have the truth that not only set us free from hell, but we have the discernment that what our ears are listening isn’t correct. God protects our hearts from believing the lies that our ears are hearing.
    Remember, satan is the Father of lies.

    And those who only want what their tickling ears want to hear, and those who may put their teachers equal to God or even above God will be easily fooled by false teaching.

    Salvation is an individual choice , and having discernment is our responsibility , and is crucial to not being led away into believing false teaching .
    God is not a God of confusion. He will never lead us astray. Our fresh and our own desires will lead us down the wrong path if we are not in fellowship with God by reading and studying his word, and earnestly praying for discernment, and wisdom as we depend on God to protect our hearts from false teaching.

    satan is very alive, and very well. We must flee from the enejy and the word says that he will flee from us.

    This doesn’t mean that we are sinless. We will sin, but the word of God says that “ if we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness “

    Our ongoing forgiveness from God doesn’t give us a license to live in habitual sin. That may be the difference of being truly born again and just being a “Church goer” or claiming Religion “

    • Mel 2 years ago

      Repent actually means to change ones mind. That’s the Greek translation. So you aren’t turning away from anything, you have simply changed your mind on how you thought you must be saved. Simply belief that Jesus died on the cross for all of your sins is all you need. Your walk with Christ afterwards determines how your life changes.

      • Brian 2 years ago

        You are very correct, Mel! I Cor 15:1-4….this is the gospel of grace Paul preached. This is what saves and places the believer into the Body of Christ….becoming a member of the Body of Christ is NOT instantaneous perfection. It’s a life long process……

    I am not a follower of Beth Moore but why should people respond to this article when all they’re going to get is push back from another reader whose comments have an abrasive undertone. Get a grip. There is nothing wrong with asking for an example (not countless examples) from the author of this article. The one given is not an example of that. Beth felt like her Heavenly Father compelled her to go comb a mans hair who was in a wheel chair. What does that have to do with ‘sound teaching’? Even Jesus felt compassion on a blind man and went over to him and spit in dirt and made it into mud and rubbed it on the blind mans eyes… and the blind man was healed!! Imagine the backlash Jesus received from the religious community when He did that. If you’re going to write an article about anyone, especially one of judging another persons heart and motive, and say there teaching is not sound, you should present facts and present accurate findings in your research to your readers. Otherwise as a reader it comes across judging a persons heart and motives followed by petty arguments and sadly more gossip and slander in the Body of Christ being done in Jesus name.

      Because it’s a story meant to “tickle ears.” It’s deceptive. How do you know it even happened? And what difference does it make? I’ll tell you what it does: it sells her books. Because women are too sensitive and gush all over her and buy more books and hence Beth makes more money…off Jesus. Making money and being popular instead from Christianity. It’s a racket. Jesus said “Lord, Lord did we not cast out demonsin your name?” “Get away from me you evildoers.I never knew you.” That is Beth Moore. She’s using Jesus to make money.

    Hi Lauren, I would first of all like to commend you for your stance in favor of the Holy Scriptures. If only other believers did the same we would have far less confusion in the Church. The problem as I see it is that such teachers can be so influential that whenever they teach anything in relation to the bible; even though at times what they teach may be at odds with the scriptures, it is possible that they can sway people into accepting such questionable teachings. As believers in the Lord and His trustworthy word we need to realize that celebrity Christian status can be a dangerous thing in that it can provide the evil one with a strategic source to lead such people and their adherents astray, for whenever the evil one gains any ground against biblical Christianity from amongst high profile people such as Beth Moore, its effects can be deadly to say the least. This is where he accomplishes some of his most damaging deceptions and false teachings. So do not be dismayed or alarmed by the attacks that come your way when you stand for the truth of the scriptures Lauren, even the Lord Jesus was attacked many times during His earthly ministry. Remain faithful to your Savior and His word and you will never be put to shame!
    Yours in the Lord Jesus Christ, Pat

    I see no proof here of Beth being an “unsound teacher.” I mean, I guess if you simply say something enough, that makes it true, right? But I see no proof here. If your first example is her story of brushing the old man’s hair, then you are completely off your rocker. Show me actual things she’s actually said as compared to actual Scripture. Try again, because you have proved nothing in this article.

    • Jill 3 years ago

      it’s YOUR job to go back and research what the author of this article has said, like she suggested. It is not her job to point out every single error to make you believe. If you choose to ignore her request and go do your own research, that’s your choice, that’s ignorance you’ve decided to accept and keep; but whenever someone we “trust” has been accused of heresy or being a false teacher it is OUR job to do our own research to ensure that what the individual making the accusation says is truth. If you expect to have all the evidence laid out at your feet, you are going to be sorely mistaken everytime.

    • Monica 3 years ago

      I too was confused by the story of her being told by God to brush the man’s hair. God knows him intimately and would know why that would be of great importance to him. If one has never been compelled by the Holy Spirit to perform a specific act, they either aren’t tuned in, or aren’t saved.

    Thank you for this article. I have attended several Beth Moore studies, but could never “get with her”. There was always a check in my spirit and I could listen to her, but when I came away from the class I always felt something was empty. I think it is very important to reveal her as a bad teacher because she is leading so many women in “flawed” teaching. I was at that time attending a church in Roseburg Oregon that taught primarily Beth Moore studies only…I pray that they got away and into some better teaching since then. Thanks again..

    Perhaps people enjoy her bible studys because they grow in Christ while participating in them. Perhaps they enjoy going to those conferences because people are saved and they see God working miracles. Perhaps you are met with resistance because you may not be right, she may be. Many people have felt “led” by God to do certain things. Just because they do not have a large platform to share them from, does not make her wrong. I hope people reading this realize this is just something they have found on the internet. It could have been written by an atheist trying to discredit Beth Moore. Please, please, please do your own research and remember God works though different people many many ways. If YOUR pastor who God had called to lead you, has different ideas than some woman on the internet.(or whoever is writing this) …I think you should really REALLY consider the source of this article and move on.

      I agree. I think we should all consider the source of the articles, DO OUR OWN RESEARCH, and find out for ourselves the truth. As for me, I did my research on Beth Moore LONG ago and realized she is in fact a false teacher, a false prophet, and spreads heresy to all who listen to her. She’s incredibly persuasive and incredibly dangerous. But, I learned that from doing my own research. If you choose to ignore this article b/c you delight in Beth Moore, well, I think that’s foolish. Whenever a teacher of Scripture and the Bible is accused of being a false teacher or spreading heresy it’s incredibly important to do our own research to discover the truth for ourselves; not to discredit the author of the article b/c they appear to have hurt your feelings. Please, research. Don’t just ignore this and sit on your thumbs. Even a broken clock is right twice a day, and sometimes the author of the source is irrelevant b/c they are speaking truth.

    Remember the scripture that says you will be measured by the same that which you use to measure?
    It seems to me that every single teacher is going to make some mistakes. And the only teacher who didn’t was Jesus.
    So yes test everything against scripture if it is right and good fine, if not throw it in the fire with the chafe.
    This woman who is now saying that Beth Moore is a false prophet because maybe she has said some things that weren’t perfect is forgetting to use discernment. Unless she repents she will be judged herself with that same measure of perfection.
    Grace is still such a difficult concept for so many people.
    She should extend Beth some of the same grace that God extends to her. If you can’t extend grace you don’t understand grace.

      There’s a difference between “some mistakes” and constantly making errors and speaking against what Scripture says on a regular basis. When someone makes “some mistakes” sure, give them grace; but when there is a pattern and a consistency of Scriptural errors, doctrinal errors, that’s not a mistake–that’s blasphemy, and to hide behind “you’re going to be judged” statements is not only irresponsible (b/c you’ve obviously not done your own research, something the author has implored us all to do), but cowardly.

    Amen and thank you for this! I’ve never been a fan but felt like I should be. People are always shocked when I decline an invitation to see her or do a bible study.

    I must say I do not like Beth Moore. I have some ought with Carm though also. I read their statement of faith. It is heavily calvanistic. Let me say I am not an arminianist either. I am both on all 5 points. I believe from my reading that both are in scripture. Now on loss of salvation I do not believe you can lose give up or back your salvation. I believe though we have to ask are/ were those people truly saved. I believe that those who hold to one or the other only are not teaching the full word of God. Now do I say matt and others like him ( J mac, rc sproul, Todd friedel) are not good? No but they should stop calling the kettle black

    • Jill 3 years ago

      great, but what does THIS have to do with the actual article, instead of just the mentioning of the CARM website?

      Bill Grumling, John 5:24 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. Look at this Scripture & ask yourself how it says one has eternal life. When did it happen? No mention of calling on the Lord here. I’m pretty sure you’re basing your belief that we have to ask to be truly saved on a verse many have taken totally out of context. Many a preacher has preached Romans 10:9 for eternal life salvation and confused the masses. To really grasp what Paul was saying you have to go back and read the last paragraph of Romans chapter 9. Who was Paul speaking about? Israel. There are a few keys to really understanding that calling on the Lord isn’t a requirement for eternal life salvation. Read Romans 10:14 & see if you see it could be something else. 10:14 How then will they (Who? Israel) call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? …Paul says in verse 17 that faith comes by hearing & hearing by the word of Christ. Do a search of ‘call upon the Lord’ in Scriptures. It can be praise or physical deliverance. I’m sure you’ve heard the song ‘I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised… so shall I be saved from my enemies…

        The word believe is used in John almost 100 xs. Chapter 20 v. 31 but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. Praise the Lord!
