Apprising Ministries has been warning you that the embrace of Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism by many mainstream evangelicals, coupled with a rampant charismania, is crippling Christendom. You need to understand that he sad fact is, the heart of the visible professing Christian church is following their fickle feelings rather than the Rock of God’s Word in Holy Scripture.
However, God’s inspired Apostle Paul informed us — Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so (Acts 17:11). Notice God called these people noble who were diligent to make sure what was being taught to them in the Name of the Lord truly was of God.
When someone tells you they’ve received a direct revelation from God that runs counter to Scripture and flies in the face of His Reformation we must judge it, even if it’s SBC darling Beth Moore. Shame on the SBC—the largest Protestant denomination in the United States—for they host what you’re about to see, and even charge a fee, for people to be taught the following demonic deception from Beth Moore.
As I’ve pointed out before, the exclusive video clips below come from her 2002 series Believing God (BG); which as you can see below is still promoted today by Lifeway—the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention:
Being that this LifeWay-sponsored BG Online Bible Study is from a decade ago, we are safe to assume that what you’re going to hear from Beth Moore is in line with the SBC’s nebulous principles, which is about as close as you get to actual SBC doctrine. Its Idol of Autonomy is a convenient escape hatch from confronting false doctrine.
First, watch as Beth Moore tells us God gave her a literal vision where she claims He allowed her to see “the Church, as Jesus sees it”:
If one is unbiased, the following should now be crystal clear: 1) Beth Moore is talking about the universal Church, i.e. the Body of Christ; 2) she’s also claiming extra-biblical revelation via a literal vision that she testifies God showed her, and 3) it supposedly enabled her to see the Church as Jesus views it.
I encourage you to keep all of this in mind now as you watch the next video clip. It’s actually taken from a section of BG after God allegedly gave Beth Moore a literal vision that afforded her the ability, in a “particular dimension,” to see the Body of Christ exactly as the Lord Himself does.
Watch as Moore illustrates the vision concerning “something different” she sees “God doing” in the Church; i.e.“the body of Christ.” You’ll clearly see she that does include the apostate Roman Catholic Church, which long ago anathematized the Gospel of Jesus Christ, among her Christian denominations:
No; God did not give Beth Moore this vision because the Roman Catholic Church has never rescinded her condemnation of His Gospel.1 In fact, this was at the very heart of the Protestant Reformation the Lord raised up in the first place. Beth Moore needs to be called to account for this demonic vision; she is not to be admired.
The truth is, Beth Moore needs to publicly repent of taking the Lord’s Name in vain and for her sinful ecumenical teaching. Now you have a proper backdrop in which to see another example of how deluded charismaniacs like Moore are becoming. This past Saturday Moore would enthusiastically share with her Twitter followers:
The name Lakewood may sound familiar to you; yes, it is that Lakewood Church led by Word Faith pastor Joel Osteen and his wife pastrix Victoria.2 Lakewood Church also posted the below on their Facebook page:
Christine Caine would add the following concerning the heretical Osteens:
You might recall AM pieces like Steven Furtick Grows In Stature And Closer To Word Faith Movement. In such, I’ve been trying to tell you that all of these so-called direct revelations currently spreading throughout the leadership of mainstream evangelicalism—allegedly from God—have even opened the door for Word Faith fools like T.D. Jakes.3
Certainly we should be able to see that Joel Osteen Moving One Step Closer To Mainstream Evangelicalism when someone as revered in conservative Christian circles as Beth Moore feels comfortable enough to announce she was going to go and join in fellowship with 1) someone like Osteen and his false gospel, and 2) with women in rebellion against God’s Word.
A while back I brought to your attention that Christine Caine is a pastrix at the nefarious Word Faith organization known as Hillsong Church; e.g. in Women Pastors, Priscilla Shirer, And The Southern Baptist Convention, and we’ve already seen Beth Moore To Speak For Hillsong Church.
Then there’s Moore’s own work functioning as an elder, e.g. Beth Moore Preaches Sunday Morning Service At Louie Giglio’s Passion City Church. In fact Moore’s home church, which has ties to the SBC, also has women pastors.4 We do note these women head up children and women’s ministry save for their “mobilization pastor” Alicia Divers.
All of this being yet more examples of the sad slide of the mainstream of the church visible; further illustration of the horrible discernment, not only of Beth Moore, but of all those who are falling in love with the self (cf. 2 Timothy 3:2). I’m afraid such is the current state of apostatizing evanjellyfish.
Tragically, they’ve unbuckled themselves from sola Scriptura; tossing aside God’s Word, and are in a free fall following the inner burblings of their own hearts. Rather than follow these, who’re centered on the self, this is what the Lord says:
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
