As you can hear in the video posted above, (1/6/14 I’m sorry…just noticed this video is now made ‘private,’ and unfortunately there is no other copies of this video to post) Pastor James MacDonald, senior pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows, thinks very highly of Beth Moore, and calls her studies “pretty phenomenal.”   And because I have recently learned that Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows (my previous church for almost 15 years) is presently featuring a Beth Moore book as their focus for one of their ‘small groups,’ (and they have also chosen many of her books in the past –and probably presently — as the topic for some of their Bible Studies, as well) I found it now necessary to be one among many others who are expressing their concerns about Beth Moore to warn those of you who are avid followers of hers, the importance of testing what she says against Scripture. 

As many solid Bible teachers say, “The first key to proper Biblical interpretation is context, context, context!”  We must not take a person’s word for what a certain passage means, but rather go to Scripture and read the surrounding verses as well, in order to get a clear and proper understanding of what that text is actually saying.

Beth Moore is definitely a gifted speaker, but those of us who are Christians are commanded to ‘test all things,’ and to ‘hold fast to what is true.’  (1Thessalonians 5:21,22)

We are also shown in Scripture to ‘test what is said by those who claim to speak for God against Scripture to see if what is being said is true’:

“Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11)

So with that in mind, I plead with those of you who have been caught up into Beth Moore’s teachings and captivated by her charming personality and who consider yourselves to be one of her faithful followers, to pray for discernment and please listen to Chris Rosebrough of ‘Fighting For The Faith’ and ‘Pirate Christian Radio,’ as he gives his Biblical analysis of one of her messages in the video posted at the link below.  Please be sure to open up your Bible and follow along to see if what is being said is really true:

Chris Rosebrough BETH MOORE’S DANGEROUS BIBLE TWISTING

 

SCRIPTURES FOR YOU TO FOCUS ON

“I appeal to you , brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.  My brothers, some from Cloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.  What I mean is this:  One of you says,  “I follow Paul”; another,I follow Apollos”;  another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”  Is Christ divided?  Was Paul crucified for you?”                                         (1 Corinthians 1:10-13)

“Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly–mere infants in Christ.  I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it.  Indeed, you are still not ready.  You are still worldly.  For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly?  Are you not acting like mere men?  For when one says,  “I follow Paul,”  and another,  “I follow Apollos,”  are you not mere men?  “What, after all, is Apollos?  And what is Paul?  Only servants through whom you came to believe–as the Lord has assigned to each his task.  I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.  So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.  For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.  By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it.  But each one should be careful how he builds.  For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:1-11)

“We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.  For He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying,  “This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.”  We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with Him on the sacred mountain.  And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.  Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation.  For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”  (2 Peter 1:16-21)

“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe.  The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful Word.  After He had  provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.  SO He became as much superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is superior to theirs.  For to which of the angels did God ever say,  “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father.”  (Hebrews 1:1-5)  (Since this is such a powerful passage of Scripture that speaks so much Biblical truth –and one of my favorites, as well–I decided to post more than just the portion of this passage that applies to Beth Moore, which I will elaborate upon at a later time –Lord willing — if time allows).

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”           (Galatians 6:14)

“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of His appearing and His kingdom, I give you this charge:  Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.  Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.  For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or of you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3,4)

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light,  It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.  Their end will be what their actions deserve.”        (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

“Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.  By their fruit you will recognize them.  Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?  Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.  “Not everyone who says to Me,  ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.  Many will say to Me on that day,  ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you.  Away from Me you evildoers!'” (Matthew 7:15-23)

“But there were also false prophets  among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.  They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up.  Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.”            (2 Peter 2:1,2)

“Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men.  For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.  Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.  Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood.  I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard!  Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”  (Acts 20:26-31)

JUDGING

For those of you who may accuse me of judging Beth Moore, I want you to know that even though we as Christians are not to judge a person’s heart or their intentions, we are supposed to judge/test what she says — as well as what others say, who claim to preach and teach God’s Word — in light of Scripture, and we are also to expose those who teach false doctrines.  Again, I will cite these verses: Acts 17:11, 1 Thessalonians 5:21,22

  “Stop judging by mere appearances and make a right judgment.”               (John 7:24)

“I have written to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people–not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters.  In that case you would have to leave this world.  But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler.  With such a man do not even eat.  What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church?  Are you not to judge those inside?  God will judge those outside.  “Expel the wicked man from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:9-12)

Lord willing, I will post more information on Beth Moore concerning her promotion of ‘mysticism’ some time in the future, but now I am trying to finish the poem I am presently writing, entitled: ‘RISE UP!’
