NoCo90: 'The Corridors of Time'
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)
To begin, Moore brushes aside the fact that, for the Jews in Israel at this time the 'twelfth month' actually was March, not December. Already she has disregarded the basic grammatical-historical approach to Scripture interpretation. She ignores the obvious in her teaching: that these verses describe a historical event. This passage is descriptive and not prescriptive. But what is even more grievous is that she uses these verses to turn her followers' focus onto themselves. Have you had a difficult year? Pray that God will redeem this year for you. Why is this so disconcerting (aside from the obvious narcissism involved)? Beth Moore misses an opportunity to point her viewers to Christ.
Now it came about in the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, that Evil-merodach king of Babylon, in the year that he became king, released Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison; and he spoke kindly to him and set his throne above the throne of the kings who were with him in Babylon. Jehoiachin changed his prison clothes and had his meals in the king's presence regularly all the days of his life; and for his allowance, a regular allowance was given him by the king, a portion for each day, all the days of his life. (2 Kings 25:27–30)

The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The LORD has clothed and girded Himself with strength;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
The floods have lifted up their voice,
The floods lift up their pounding waves.
More than the sounds of many waters,
Than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The LORD on high is mighty.
Your testimonies are fully confirmed;
Holiness befits Your house,
O LORD, forevermore.
It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil. And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. (1 Tim 3:1–7)The audio and PDF evidence, however, has since been removed from Mefferd's website. Many noticed yesterday that the links were no longer accessible and that Mefferd's Twitter feed had been scrubbed of any mention of Driscoll and the plagiarism controversy. (Another site has made the PDF evidence accessible here.)
