In Apprising Ministries pieces like How Would You Know Beth Moore? I’ve shared my concerns about people like Moore who appear to claiming to receive special revelation directly from God. Like many in evangelicalism and Southern Baptist circles, e.g. Druckerite Purpose Driven Pope Rick Warren, Moore’s teaching is often peppered with things she says the Lord told her personally.
We’d often hear this kind of thing from Word Faith heretics like T.D. Jakes and Joel Osteen, who pray in an altered state of consciousness they call “tongues,” but with growing acceptance of corrupt Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism within evangelicalism—its Contemplative/Centering Prayer is also another form of “praying” in an altered state of consciousness—and it’s even more common now than you may know.
Concerning Beth Moore Personal Freedom Outreach, a fine discernment and apologetics ministry, told us a couple of years ago:
following repeated requests for a critique of Beth Moore, PFO offered its first article which examined both the teaching found in her best-selling book, When Godly People Do Ungodly Things, and her unorthodox associations.
Because of the popularity of that initial evaluation, PFO received calls for additional articles surveying her unabashed mysticism and faulty biblical interpretations. To date, PFO has published a total of four articles examining Beth Moore, and these are available together as a special offer. (Online source)
Against this backdrop I now point you to the below segment from the Fighting for the Faith (FftF) program of Christian apologist Chris Rosebrough that airs on Pirate Christian Radio. Of this particular portion of FftF, over at his Extreme Theology website today, Rosebrough writes:
I recently reviewed two segments of Beth Moore’s “Bible teaching” on my radio program and I must admit I was bowled over by just how bad and dangerous her teaching really is. I know she’s popular but this woman is NOT rightly handling God’s word. Instead, she is twisting the scriptures to her own destruction and the destruction of her hearers.
Take a listen for yourself. Not only is this bad, it’s downright dangerous false teaching! (Online source)
