About Those Beth Moore Tweets

Twitter has a way of bringing out the worst in us, not to mention the worst of us. The medium of Twitter encourages us to make snap judgments on the basis of very little information. Unfortunately, Beth Moore often finds herself on the receiving end of such judgments.

A number of people have problems with Moore’s understanding of modern day revelation from God, or Moore’s supposedly imprecise statements related to her understanding of modern day revelation from God, or Moore’s practice of preaching to men, or Moore’s fraternizing with questionable teachers, or Moore’s celebrity status, and some have problems with all of the above. But Beth Moore is not going anywhere. She has a lengthy track record of effectively ministering to women both inside and outside of the Southern Baptist Convention.

How to know the difference between the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error (Denny Burk)

In this article, Denny Burk reminds us that “if you want to know Jesus and if you want to know the truth, then you must listen to His apostolic witnesses. If you refuse to listen to and to believe in the apostolic portrait of Jesus, you are listening to the spirit of antichrist (1 John 4:3).”

A Civil Summary of Concerns with J. D. Greear’s Public Statements on Homosexuality

The point of this painstaking evaluation of Greear’s public statements on homosexuality is not to try and show that Greear is some sort of false teacher or liberal theologian. Far from it. We assume the best about Greear and his words, and we are thankful for his clear stand in clearly proclaiming, along with the word of God, that homosexuality is sin. Yet we wonder why Greear would strike a tone that distances him from the historic position and practice of the Church on the topic of homosexuality. We hope in light of the concerns expressed here that President Greear and others might be in a better position to see some of the reasons why some people are upset by Greear’s words, and some of the reasons why others hope Greear might choose to be more forthcoming and clear about this topic of homosexuality in the future.

How J. D. Greear Goes Wrong When Discussing Homosexuality (Part 5 of 5)

Pastor J. D. Greear currently serves as President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Greear recently wrote a blog post on his personal site titled, “Three Ways We Go Wrong When Discussing Homosexuality.” This CRVoices post is the fifth in a five-part series carefully examining Greear’s claims in his blog post.

Greear’s post is well-intentioned and certainly not completely wrong. We should rejoice that he takes a stand in clearly proclaiming, along with the word of God, that homosexuality is sin. However, Greear’s post is also unhelpful with regard to some points of theology on the topic of homosexuality. Given the significance of biblical fidelity and compassionate ministry when it comes to the topic of homosexuality, these unhelpful aspects of Greear’s post are worth addressing.

In this fifth of five posts in this series, we carefully consider Greear’s third and final claim, “We’re wrong if we assume it’s hard for LGBT people to get to heaven.”

Ideas Have Consequences: Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality in the News from the Southern Baptist Convention (Albert Mohler)

In Part III of this podcast, R. Albert Mohler, Jr. discusses the infamous Resolution 9 from the 2019 Southern Baptist Convention in Birmingham, Alabama, stating, “Ideas, as we know, do have consequences, and one of the most lamentable consequences, but the main consequence of critical race theory and intersectionality is identity politics, and identity politics can only rightly be described, as antithetical to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have to see identity politics as disastrous for the culture and nothing less than devastating for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Critical Theory in the Church (Josh Daws)

In this thread, Josh Daws addresses what is, “a common misconception that the concern about Critical Theory in the church is *really* about promoting Trumpism and right-wing politics.”
