The past 5 years has seen a rise in the prominence of Beth Moore as a "Bible Teacher" within Evangelical ranks. She is extremely popular within many Southern Baptist churches but also outside of that circle within Evangelical churches. Beth Moore is touted as an orthodox instructor "for women". The claim of her validity as a teacher of the bible by her students and peers rests in her refusal to be ordained or accept a formal ecclesiastical office. She maintains that women cannot rightly be ordained. But never minding this delicate adjudication that allows her, in reality, to function as an authority of Scripture within Evangelical churches and churches that otherwise would, by their constitution and theological expression, not invite any such woman, she nevertheless has found a way to fly under the radar with this license.
Unfortunately she, like all women who exit their role of teaching within the limits allowed by Scripture and embark on a career as a "teacher of the Scriptures" or one that teaches with such authority, Beth Moore has also exited into error. Here is just a sample of her egregious dictum:
She states at the 40 minute mark:
If we receive Christ as our Savior, but we never recognize and by faith believe him to also be our healer and our restorer, then we just stay as cracked as we were when he got here
Beth Moore is a "pop psychologist/theologist (the word theologian simply is too unfitting) who is following the line of many before her in turning the Scriptures upside down to provide a remedy for social and psychological inadequacies while now and then throwing in references to recognizable doctrine concepts.
I included John Piper's name in the title noting his indiscretion (personally I do not view it as an indiscretion with respect to Piper, rather it was typical of a Neo-Evangelical) in the eyes of some regarding his past alliances with theological extremist Doug Wilson (past invitee) and his recent invitation of Rick Warren for his Desiring God Conference because John Piper also offers Beth Moore's teaching as part of his Women's Bible Study curriculum, shedding even more light on Piper's weak theological discrimination.
