A Prophet for an Un-discerning Church | MOS – Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals – I’ve thought similar to this article for a few years and caught a little flack from it. A pastor would need to be very brave because so many women would be on his case about this.
Beth Moore Deserves Better | MOS – Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals – Another perspective
I include the above two links because for a few years I have felt similarly to what’s written in the first post, and think that they can write about this topic much better than I can. Beth Moore and the also mentioned Joyce Meyer have a very significant influence on a lot of women. I fully endorse what the above posts say. (If you read the first, please read the second.) If I get criticized, it’s OK. My blog allows comments and theirs do not, so I’m taking a risk. Most supporters will say, “But she’s done so much good for so many people.” Misguided teaching and sloppy use of Scripture will lead many people to bad soil (Mark 4:3-9). There are so many better teachers out there. Look for anything by Nancy Guthrie as an example, both as a writer and editor. If you’d like to hear from a woman on a similar subject, Aimee Byrd, who completes the trio of The Mortificatin of Spin, can be heard on one of their shorter podcasts called Best Seller Sell-Outs. Discernment is lacking among many evangelicals of either gender these days.
God might call you to be ignored
“We speak [the gospel], we pray, we plead… and there’s nothing. For many, your words are nothing more than the incoherent mutterings of Charlie Brown’s school teacher.” This is encouraging for me, I guess.
