After Beth Moore left the Southern Baptist Convention a few months ago–following in the footsteps of SBC pastor, Dwight McKissic, who said he was “getting off the bus” because the denomination is racist–Reformation Charlotte predicted that it would only be a matter of time before her true colors started to show. We’ve known–and have been warning for years–that Beth Moore was not a woman of God, but one who baptizes her hatred of godly things in a cloak of occasional Bible verses and Christian-sounding speech.
Beth Moore is no godly woman.
As much as I loathe the Southern Baptist Convention and the trajectory that its leadership has taken it down over the last decade, I find myself even repulsed by Beth Moore’s latest diatribe in the wake of her departure. In fact, my disdain for the denomination is for the exact opposite reasons as Beth Moore’s My disdain is because the denomination has moved way too far to the left whereas Beth Moore’s gripe is that it hasn’t moved far enough, fast enough.
And herein lies the problem with bridge-builders and fence-riders–like that vast majority of Southern Baptist leadership today. Rather than have a solidly doctrinal position against a heresy and vocally oppose it with all you have, these men ignore it, let it fester, and then wait until bombs go off before mildly putting out the fire with a soda can.
In her latest screed, she now scolds Southern Baptist seminary presidents for signing a statement denouncing Critical Race Theory–a heresy that is clearly incompatible with the Scriptures and biblical Christianity.
You see, here’s the thing: what’s taking place in the whole of Evangelicalism is nothing but mimicry of a worldly movement. It is Beth Moore who is unable to differentiate between Critical Race Theory and biblical justice–further, it is not the job of the Church to fight every injustice in the world. And the entire movement, which is rooted in the divisive notion of Intersectionality–namely, that white people are at the top of the oppressor class pyramid and by the very virtue of their skin color, oppress people who are not white–serves to do nothing but tear the Church apart.
One must ask the question in light of Romans 16:17: who is it that causes divisions? How many churches and denominations has the “racial reconciliation” movement that Beth Moore is so fond of torn apart? How many churches have the entire social justice movement torn apart? It’s ripping apart the Southern Baptist Convention and many of its churches right before our eyes. The passage cited above implicates the heresy as the culprit of division–not those who speak out against it. On that, the Bible is clear! Yet, Moore’s tirade will elicit responses like these below because churches don’t educate Christians in actual theology.
Moreover, Moore’s opposition to the Southern Baptist seminary heads’ joint statement denouncing Critical Race Theory is misplaced–they don’t actually oppose Critical Race Theory. If they did, they’d fire the men in their schools who are relentlessly pushing it. Their oppositional statement to CRT is nothing more than an attempt to douse the flames of a growing conservative movement to push out the progressives and re-establish a Church with biblical principles. They’re trying to build bridges.
Nonetheless, should we be surprised that Beth Moore is telling us who she really is? Many of us already knew–in fact, most people already knew but were just afraid to say it. But now, whatever semblance of Biblical orthodoxy she once had, if any, is being plucked away feather by feather as she squawks and squirms her way right into the waking path of those who fell before her.
