Rightly Dividing Beth Moore's 'Unity' with Word Faith Teacher Joyce Meyer

On 15 August 2014, this blog reported that the SBC's popular female Bible "teacher," Beth Moore, was "talking unity" with Word Faith teacher Joyce Meyer:
Is this what Beth Moore meant when she claimed to have received personal, direct revelation from God to "stop sowing over and over again in the same field"? Is this the unity of which Moore spoke at James Robison's Awaken Conference? It certainly seems that way:

Unity with Word Faith heretics, of which Joyce Meyer is the foremost among females? Beth Moore may be talking about unity, but it is a worldly form of unity. It is unity at the expense of truth, and it is unity at the expense of the gospel.

Yet, this new alliance does not surprise at all. Aligning with false teachers is to be expected by those who deny the sufficiency of Scripture. With her claims of extra biblical revelation, Moore does exactly that. If the Bible were enough for her, she would not need dreams and nudges and divine playdates.
It seems, then, that in all of His alleged direct communication with Beth Moore, God Almighty has failed to warn her of the heresies of Joyce Meyer. Heresies such as positive confession:

Or the "little gods" doctrine:

Or the many dangerous deceptions that are propagated by the International House of Prayer (IHOP), a charismatic group that stands at the forefront of the heretical New Apostolic Reformation movement. But, what does IHOP have to do with Beth Moore? Nothing, directly, though it appears as though Beth Moore's newest friend, Joyce Meyer, will be a featured speaker later this year at IHOP's conference for young adults, OneThing, which only confirms Meyer's own biblical illiteracy and lack of discernment:

Why is any of this a problem? It is a problem because Beth Moore, on her recent appearance on Joyce Meyer's Enjoying Everyday Life television show, heartily praised Joyce Meyer as "a mighty, mighty woman of God," but…which god?

Beth Moore is seeking unity with false teachers. She is seeking unity at the expense of truth. She is seeking a false unity that may bring peace with men, but will ultimately separate many from the God of the Bible, the God Who saves.
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14)
