  1. Is this from his Sola Scriptura and Mysticism sermons? Just listened to those today - excellent series.

  2. thank you for speaking out regarding Beth Moore. I know of a church in Oregon, that only uses Beth in their women's studies...not good..

  3. I think we have to be a little bit careful here. I'm not defending Beth Moore's mystic nonsense, but we have to be careful not to swing the pendulum too far the other way. God does speak to our hearts today through the Holy Spirit. We are to confirm anything we hear with the truth of His Word, and if it is not faithful to that Word, to discard it. But this pastor flat out said, "God does not speak outside of His Word today." I would agree if he said, "God does not speak anything to us that is not completely in conformance to His Word", or something to that effect. But by ruling out the Holy Spirit ever speaking to our hearts at all, I think he's gone too far the other way. If God directs me to help a brother or sister, or directs me to leave a job, etc. it is not contradicting Sola Scriptura to believe God directed me, or told me, to do it. If I find that what He's saying to me conforms with a proper interpretation of His Word, then I will accept it as His voice. Does that make sense? And maybe that's what the pastor means, but he doesn't say that, so I have to put this out there as a caution.

    1. "But by ruling out the Holy Spirit ever speaking to our hearts at all, I think he's gone too far the other way."

      Only if you are prepared to make the biblical case that Holy Scriptures inspired by God the Holy Spirit does not speak to the heart of a believer... The opposite is true.

      "For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something that is outward in the flesh, 2:29 but someone is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit and not by the written code. This person’s praise is not from people but from God."
      ~ Romans 2:28-29

    3. Tom. But the scripture tells us the Holy Spirits role. It is to comfort and convict and Illuminate already revealed truth. If I'm reminded that something I did was bad... we may communicate that it was the Holy Spirit that Spoke to me. But really it was conviction that I had sinned. Not an actual voice.

      What Beth Moore is doing is getting revelation apart from the scriptures. This is 67th book of scriptures stuff.

      Never once do we find in scriptures that the Holy Spirit will tell us to take Job a or take Job b.

      We've confused illumination with revelation. The spirit will bring the word to remembrance. Will bring sin to remembrance that we should confess. But never give new revelation.

      How do you know its God? There is no mechanism to know whether its God or just your own impressions. That's why WE have to be super careful not to call our own intuitions from God. God gave us a brain and gave us parameters and gave us Godly brothers and sisters in Christ. Using those tools we make decisions. Not waiting on a voice. I see it all the time where a follower will call something as God's voice, when in reality it was just their own personal preference. "God told me to take this job". Then a week later they get fired or find another one. Makes God out to look really stupid. How dangerous to take the Lords name in vain!!

  4. Amen Pastor Mike. So many women are deceived by Beth Moore. Pastors and Elders need to speak up and protect the flock, husbands too.
