Interviewing Professor Nancy Pearcey – Author of Love Thy Body

Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! My super sweet co-host and I had the absolutely honor of interviewing best selling author, Professor Nancy Pearcey. We were going to be releasing an episode today addressing an issue that arose last week, but decided against it over the weekend. Should we feel like the issue isn’t appropriately resolved, I’ve got the episode on standby and continue to appreciate all your prayers. So for today, Nancy Pearcey’s wonderful and fascinating interview is what we’ve dropped. Unless something changes, Thursday’s episode will be Doreen Virtues interview. We’ll also be posting the actual video footage on YouTube today, so keep an eye out for that.

Professor Pearcey was gracious enough to spend several hours talking with us, although most of that conversation wasn’t able to make it onto the program as it pertains to her next book. In this episode we talk with Prof. Pearcey about Love Thy Body, a book which delves into the harmful image current culture has of the body. We also discuss her testimony, of how God brought her from atheistic to Christian apologist. No Tulips & Honey episode would be complete without some shenanigans, so we of course had to ask her some silly questions. Here are links to her five books, including the one we discussed today. Love Thy Body Finding Truth Total Truth Saving Leonardo The Soul of Science You can also follow Professor Pearcey on ‎@NancyRPearcey, or learn more about her at her website.

You can find our podcast on iTunes, Podbean, Google Play, Stitcher, YouTube, Spotify, and many other platforms. If there are platforms that you’d like to see our podcast on let me know and I’ll get right to work on it. We’ve also recently launched a store, where we’ll happily make you personalized, customized, Christian t-shirts, hats, socks, mugs, pretty much anything you can need. We’ve already added a few items which I’ll link to below. The purpose of the store is to help with the cost of podcasting, not to make merchandise out of my brothers and sisters in Christ. Please let me know if there’s something specific you’d like to have made. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Friday’s MEGA List – Recommendations, Reviews, Suggestions: November 15tg, 2019

Dear ones, welcome back to another MEGA list. There are only 6 Friday’s left in 2019, not including today. That’s almost impossible to believe, as another year comes to a close. Coming up on Tulips & Honey on Monday we will be addressing how, when, and why to rebuke one another as well as how we ought to be treating one another on social media. I know we’ve dealt with this already, however it’s come up yet again, only in a different way. On Thursday we’ll be dropping an absolutely fascinating interview with Professor Nancy Pearcey. That lady is truly one of the most interesting individuals we’ve had the pleasure of talking with. In fact, we talked for four hours! Don’t worry, we won’t be releasing a four hour long episode, the magic of the edit button!

Recommendations

I’ve recommended Librovox before, it’s a free website that offers audiobooks from the public domain. I recently learned that you can also listen to their audiobooks on iTunes! Isn’t that neat? Here’s a link to one that I’ll be listening to soon, Contra Gentes by Athanasius. They’ve also got the Institutes there, as well as a multitude of Charles Spurgeon works! Becca, my super sweet co-host, wanted to recommend this Spurgeon devotional, and this Primer her and her husband use as a family devotional.

Reviews

Today I’d like to review Ray Comforts newest movie Why Did the Dinosaurs Disappear. It follows the same pattern of his other movies, explaining a scientific, or moral, fact while sharing the Gospel with those he is speaking to. You know, beloved, that I have a love for dinosaur fossils. I was sad to leave our previous assignment where there was a fossil dealer who brought in new items weekly. I’m not sure is Bismarck has anything like that. For decades now the secular world has used dinosaurs as an excuse not to believe in the Biblical timeline. So far in this millennium we’ve found nothing but evidence refuting the evolutionary timeline within the fossil record. This movie is appropriate for all ages, and very fascinating.

Suggestions

My suggestion to you all, dear friends, is that you be uncommonly kind to your brothers and sisters-in-Christ this weekend. They will know us by our love, so give preference to one another, putting the other ahead of yourself. Do not esteem yourself above others, but rather, forgetting yourself, love each other with the love we have been given by the Father. In this way, we fulfill the law. I say this from a point of deep concern, what image are we showing our friends and family when we ignore this command? I also say this from a point of humility, as much reminding myself as I am admonishing you. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Update – What are we Doing and Where are we Going?

I had the days of our interviews mixed up, I’m so sorry dear ones! Today’s episode is an update on what we’ll be doing with the podcast, blog, and hub next. Please pray for me, brothers and sisters-in-Christ. I deeply need your prayers today, as does Becca. We’re going to be recording an episode this weekend that, well, we simply don’t want to have to record. Unfortunately, we’ve got to deal with another serious subject.

I so treasure each of you, thank you for your kindness, prayer, and support of the podcast. Especially thank you for the prayer. If there’s anything you’d like me to be in prayer for, please let me know. If it’s something you’d rather not make public you can send it to me via email or social media messages. I find great joy in praying for you all. Don’t forget, once you’ve finished this episode, to let me know your answer to the riddle at the end. First one to get the answer correct will be announced on social media.

You can find the podcast on YouTube, Podbean, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, iTunes, and through our website 5Solas.Online. We will be launching a store within the next few days, so if there is a personalized t-shirt idea you’ve got, please let me know. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Guest Post – More on Moore by Tami Dykes

Below, dear friends, is a post written by a listener of Tulips & Honey. She wrote this on FaceBook and gave me permission to publish it here on the blog. I hope this gives more clarity on why Beth Moore is such a dangerous teacher. You can find Tami on FB here. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.


Many think that in spite of the bad doctrine that Beth Moore teaches, that she is our sister in Christ and that we should not call her a false teacher or false prophet.
I will show you in this write up why I don’t believe she is a sister in Christ and why I do believe her to be a false teacher.
I believe women need to test any Bible study teacher they are considering.
The best example in Scriptures is the Bereans.
As most know, it’s not easy but necessary.
I am not throwing stones at her or trying to be mean or hateful, I’m trying to warn others that are caught up in her unbiblical doctrine.
As Ezekiel 3:16-21 explains why the warning is needed.
20 Again, if a righteous person turns from his righteousness and commits injustice, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you have not warned him, he shall die for his sin, and his righteous deeds that he has done shall not be remembered, but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 But if you warn the righteous person not to sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning, and you will have delivered your soul.”
I can’t explain in just one sentence my take on Beth Moore because there is so much that she teaches that’s bad. People need to be warned.
I will post references and examples and my own comments will be in parenthesis.
__________________________________
(The people that have woke up to her deception agree that much of her bad doctrine is “secretly introduce” into her studies just as this verse says and her followers just don’t see it.)
Scripture says in 2 Peter 2:1-3 of False Teachers and Their Destruction…
“But there were also false prophets
among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.
They will “secretly introduce” destructive “heresies”, even “denying the sovereign Lord” who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with “fabricated stories”.
Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.”
(Beth Moore definitely has fabricated stories because her preaching is based much on her own thoughts and voices in her head or what she feels in her heart.
She often says, “God told me in my heart” or “God laid it on my heart”, about a special revelation that she claims she has from God, which we are unable to test or find in Scriptures.
From the verse above, we see that heresy which is any belief contrary to biblical doctrine and anything that denies or rejects the teaching of Jesus is destructive.
Would you say that anyone that purposely changes, twists, adds or takes away from God’s Law, God’s Word, has denied and rejected truth? Have they denied Jesus’ teachings?
Yes! Because after they have done this they have made a new and different doctrine, a different Bible, a different God. The Truth has been denied, the Bible has been denied and God has been denied.
She is not a solid biblical teacher and as my friends from Tulips and Honey podcast even say, not only should she NOT teach men but she shouldn’t even be teaching women.
Lauren and Becca, I agree!)
podcast is here:

Deuteronomy 12:32~ “Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.
(So, looking at this verse ask yourself, is Beth doing what God commands? No, she is completely rebelling by preaching and holding authority over men in churches along with so much more.
Is Beth adding and taking away from God’s commands? Yes. Every time she inserts herself into Scriptures or twist Scriptures to fit her message and every time she tells of a personal revelation.)
(This verse below speaks volumes concerning Beth.)
“If you love me, you will keep my commands,” He says, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever” (John 14:15-16).
(Start with the very first sentence of that verse.
Does Beth love Him? Well, does she keep God’s commands?
I’d say no because God commands women to be submissive and not have the authority of men. God commands us to not add or take away from His Word but her extra-biblical teachings (revelations) add and takes away. God commands us to obey God’s Word but her refusal to obey God’s commands tells us she does not love Him.
It’s not like Beth had no idea she was teaching this way or she had no idea she was teaching people bad doctrine or she didn’t know she was in rebellion. She has been confronted on many things by many well known Bible teachers so she can’t act shocked and say, “Ooops I accidentally taught something wrong”.
So this is a clear indication she is in rebellion and does not love God’s Word.)
(The last part of that verse tells us Jesus knows that keeping His commands in this fallen world will require a divine source of power in the form of the Holy Spirit’s presence living within us.)
(My thought here is this if keeping His commands in this fallen world will require a divine source of power in the form of the Holy Spirit’s presence living within us.
With Beth not keeping His commands, what’s that say about the Holy Spirit in her?
What’s that say about Beth? Yeah, not good.)
___________________________________
(Biblical doctrine teaches us the nature and the character of God.
Beth changes His character and makes God someone He is not.
A good example is when she tells everyone to have a “romance” with Him as she states in a simulcast of what she calls mighty makers.
You tell me if the following is Biblical doctrine)…
From Chapter 3 Ministries:
“According to Mrs. Moore, “mighty makers” (there are 6 of them) are things we can do to make sure we get on a list that will be in heaven of the mighty men and women who were willing to stand up and fight the good fight with the shield of faith and sword of the Spirit. No Bible verse was given for this list or for her claim that her “mighty makers” will get us on it. What was given was her belief that “There will be “chronicles of the wars that have taken place on the globe when we get to heaven”.
(Wow, I have never read in Scriptures of a list called “Mighty Makers” that will be in heaven.)
“Mrs. Moore has a lot of confidence in her “mighty makers,” She said this about them. “There is no way around any one of them.”
“She felt very strongly about the first one. She said this about it, “This is foremost, number one, and it’s the part of it that makes me want to sob my eyes out.”
“Again, no Bible verse was given for this list or for her claim that her “mighty makers” will get us on it.”
Her Mighty Maker #1 is this:
“The audacity to make an unseen Savior the supreme romance of your life.”
“According to Mrs. Moore, that is what we were created for.”
(Really? This is the reason God created us, men and women? To have a romance with Jesus?
Ask yourself here, is this Biblical doctrine?)
“Mrs. Moore said that when we get to heaven, in spite of all we’ve been through on earth, if Jesus became the driving desire of our lives, we will say to him, “You know what? You were a blast. You were a blast. My life wasn’t a blast; a whole lot of it wasn’t very fun. But I’m gonna tell You something, You romanced me and You wooed me and You pursued me and I think You are a blast.”
The lady taking notes at this simulcast says: “I am very confident that I will not say these words to Jesus, nor would I ever speak to him in a way I would deem disrespectful. In heaven, I will be overtaken by his awesomeness, not chatting with him like he was my high school boyfriend.
Additionally, during the simulcast, no verses were given that spoke about romance with Jesus.”

(Beth also shows how she’s not worried about preaching in churches every time she preaches in churches. This comes across to many that God is probably more than fine with her breaking His commandments of women preaching to men.
Yes, I’m aware that women preaching in churches is only a secondary issue but it doesn’t mean it’s not an issue at all. What it means is, they are not obedient to God’s commands…and what did God say about those that keep His commands? That they love Him. Beth is not keeping to His commands every single time she preaches and hold authority over a man. What example is that to the body of believers that set in church and watch her do this?
As scriptures says, many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. Beth is teaching women all over the world that this is ok. Women are following their dangerous conduct.)
John MacArthur says “Titus 2:3 shows it’s ok for women to teach but they are to teach the young. He says mature women are to be reverent in their behavior.
“Reverent behavior would be obedience to the Word of God. Would you be a reverent woman if you were a woman preacher?”, “You can’t say you are a woman preacher preaching the Bible and be by virtue of that very roll dishonoring God and His Word.”, “All these women running around as preachers, supposedly teaching the Bible, are defying what the Bible says.” “The most popular woman preacher today (referring to Beth) says, “Well Paul’s not Jesus and Jesus told me to Preach”.
(Here’s a thought…How can God say in His own Law that He forbids a woman to teach or have authority over men and then Jesus decides to go against that and tells Beth she needs to preach to men and women in churches? Is this a sister in Christ? A woman that disobeys the Law and contradicts God’s own Word and puts words in God’s mouth is a sister in Christ? No. Sorry, she is not. ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxtSRfNO5xo
When we accept the Bible as God’s Word to us (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20–21), we have a solid foundation for our doctrine.
Second Peter 1:20 says that “no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation.”
“There is a right interpretation of everything God says, and it is our job to discern that meaning, not create an interpretation to suit our tastes.” (And it shouldn’t be Beth’s interpretation either when she claims new prophecies for today’s time, making the Scriptures nonauthoritative.)
https://www.gotquestions.org/what-is-doctrine.html
________________________________
(She is a false Prophet. Why do I say that? Because she has publically stated for YEARS, probably over 10 years, that God gives her messages and she says God has even told her things that she says will come true in the future, just as Prophets do.
An example would be in these video several years back,
Where Beth Moore Predicts God Will soon Unite All Sectors of Christendom.)
Videos here:

(She says in one video, “God has placed it on my heart to tell you”….and continues saying God is telling her to get prepared for something that’s coming…….hmmm, what’s coming? Awakening and
downpour is coming. She tells the audience that it will be Christians that will be the ones arguing with them about it and others will say, “that’s not what it looks like”.)
(Basically, she means we are going to say, “No, that is not biblical.” She calls us bullies and mean spirited if we argue about it or disagree with her prophecy.
The words “Go Home” don’t seem so bad when you hear her say this about other Christians.
The other video she says, God tells her that He will unite every sector and every denomination.)
She says: “I believe that out of His great mercy, God is about to push this envelope with us.
She says: “As clearly as I know how to discern what He laid upon my heart, I feel like, I am bringing it to you, as I understand it. I think what we will see if not now, very, very soon is Him (God) pushing this point with us over and over”.
(We know many religions believe very differently from those that stand on the Word of God as the ultimate authority.
The Word of Faith, International House of Prayer, Mormons, Buddhists, Muslims, Jehovah’s Witness and lots more believe very differently and are unbiblical that we can not be yoked together with.
This verse below tells us God has no intention of uniting His Church with darkness.)
2 Corinthians 6:14-16~Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
(If God walks among us how can we unite with churches that pray to the dead or even angel’s just because they bare the name church?
Why would God allow us to hold hands with other Christians that have idols and look to statues for answered prayers and those that have love of money just because they bare the name, Christian?
Would God be pleased that we have united with churches that don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God but instead a brother of Satan? What about uniting with churches that believe if you name it then you can claim it. Would God allow those churches just because they bare the name church? Will God allow them to be ok where they are and still unite us all?
Biblically, there should be no divisions between true believers of Christ. Don’t we need to be like-minded to be united and in agreement with the Word?
With those churches we are divided, we are not like-minded and we don’t have the same beliefs.)
1 Corinthians 5:11~But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one.
2 John 1:10-11~ If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
1 Corinthians 1:10~ I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.
_____________________________________
* (Another prophecy, where she talks about God telling Beth that He wants her to take money to a bus stop to give to a person that will show up later on, so she has to wait. She says God gave her the vision.
In the video, she sounds like a medium explaining the vision in certain detail as given to her from God. But, what if, God didn’t say it? She is crediting God with this prophecy.
But look at this warning God gives.)
Deuteronomy 13:1-3~”If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
(Satan masquerade as light remember. Every time someone speaks of a personal revelation they always say, “God told me”. Why don’t people say, “Satan told me?”
Because saying that doesn’t make anyone special.)
__________________________________________
From: The End Time
Romans 16:17~Final Instructions and Greetings
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.
Beth Moore’s Direct revelation from a voice in her heart that she says is God, is an “obstacle”. How? You will hear Moore deliver a “teaching” she received directly from Jesus, and then say “test it,” but we can’t … because it’s from her own mind and not from the Bible. We have to rely on her and her special relationship with Jesus for the “teaching”. In so doing, she has inserted herself between us and Jesus, creating an extra step and a barrier directly to Him that everyone else can get simply by reading His word. Without her teaching from a vision, you would not know about it, so the teaching depends on HER, not Jesus.
–the false teacher “takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit” (Colossians 2:8). They take you captive by the method above. Once you start buying into Moore’s or other false teachers’ vision-teachings, you HAVE to keep following them in order to hear it explained again, or to receive more teachings. It comes from them so you have to keep following them to see what they will say next. Pretty soon her philosophy and deceit have captured you.
—For certain people have crept in unnoticed (Jude 1:4). Easy enough- they creep, and they’re unnoticed.
So, sister, do not feel bad if you’ve been duped or feel that your discernment skills are slow to grow.

Discernment Lesson: Deconstructing Beth Moore’s most popular story
_________________________________
“Beth explains some of her revelations aren’t always right. She says, “God kept repeating a word over and over to my heart: unbelief. Unbelief! I kept sensing Him saying, “My people are suffering from unbelief!” At the time I felt that this word was a separate message from the material He was beginning to give me for Breaking Free… As clearly as a bell, God spoke to my heart through His Spirit and said, “The answer to your question is the sin of unbelief.”
She continues: … Suppose I heard God correctly. (I have certainly misread Him before!). Why do you think not believing God personally and lavishly loves us could be a sin? ”
(Moore, “Breaking Free,” p. 211-212).
**Take careful notice of the contradictions in her statement above. The message from God was as clear as a bell, but she has misread God before and is worried she may have misread Him again. How does she misread a statement that is as clear a bell? Simply put, if she has spoken a single statement that was declared to be from God but was not really from God, then she is a false prophet. This is extremely serious. Moore does not take seriously the danger of falsely proclaiming that she is speaking the words of God.”
___________________________
“In this next example of non-Biblical revelation, Moore relates the story of a woman who approached her during a speaking engagement in Louisiana:
Beth says: With obvious anointing, she told the story we’re about to study, then she said: “I don’t know you, Beth. I have no idea why God sent me with such a message to give you, but He told me clearly to say these words to you: ‘Tell her that her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much’” (Moore, “Jesus the One and Only,” p. 91).
She later continues regarding this story with: He simply sent a woman to deliver His word—that I was forgiven. He whispered to my spirit, “Now, My child, be at peace.”
Oh, how I would love to be that woman to you today. Allow me to pull up my chair right in front of you, look you in the eye, and tell you what He told me to say: “Your many sins have been forgiven—for you love much.” Go in peace
(Moore, “Jesus the One and Only,” p. 95).
In this case, Moore has placed non-Biblical revelation above the written Word of God. The Bible was not sufficient to convince Moore that her sins were forgiven, but this stranger who claimed to get a word from God was able to. Now, Moore wants you to trust what she says about your forgiveness rather than point you to the God-breathed words of the Bible for that assurance. We should heed the warning of Scripture:
[For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (NASB, 2 Corinthians 11:13-14).]
Trust the Bible, not messages from Beth Moore or anyone else no matter how spiritual or even Christ-like they may sound.”

Link below discussed 3 things to look for with False teachers.
Quotes taken from this link:
//www.gotquestions.org/false-teachers.html
#1.) How do they treat the teachings of Christ? (She abuses it)
In 2 John 9, we read, “Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.”
(Beth doesn’t treat the teachings of Christ accurately. She has changed the teachings of Christ many times. Every time she changes the story in Scriptures to match an event in her life or to insert herself.
She changes it when she lessens the authority of Scriptures by teaching women that Scripture is not the final authority but that personal revelation is just as authoritative. God’s Word says…“Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God.” (Ouch)
Then there is this new one where
Beth changes Scriptures when she tweets out this.)
“I believe wholeheartedly that ALL Scripture is inspired by God. Authoritative. Truth. But the persons themselves – Paul and Jesus – are not equals. I know this is hard for some to swallow, but Paul is not our Savior. Paul would be horrified, I believe, by the way, he has been deified.” ~ Beth”
(The reason the whole Jesus/Paul came up was because it’s in the writings of Paul that women are said not to be in authority over a man. Several other women have used the same argument, “I’m not a follower of Paul, I’m a follower of Jesus” as if the red letters are all we are to obey. ALL of Scripture is God’s Word, not just the red letters. This is a contradiction because she is referring to Scriptures here. She says she believes Scriptures is authoritative but then turns around and says Paul’s and Jesus are not equal after that.
Two things here…First, if she truly believes “wholeheartedly that ALL Scripture is inspired by God. Authoritative. Truth.” Why did she see the need to distinguish the difference between Paul and Jesus? In her tweet, no one said anything about holding Paul above Jesus in any way. Why did she throw that out there?
Second, if she believes “wholeheartedly that ALL Scripture is inspired by God. Authoritative. Truth.”
why does she teach more from her own special Revaluations?
Beth holds more closely to her own personal revelation (the voice in her head that she believes is from God.) than she does to Scriptures.
As a result of this tweet, this brought into question both Paul’s person and his teachings. When you look at that tweet there are a lot of people very confused as to what she is meaning and why she said that.)
The link below states: “While it is true that “Paul and Jesus – do not equal” it is true that the words of Christ and the words of Paul ARE equal. Why? Because Jesus stated of himself “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30) meaning he was God in the flesh.
The Word of God, all of it from Genesis to Revelation is Christ’s Words.”
If You Are Not Following Paul, Then You Are Not Following Jesus
__________________________________
#2) “Does this teacher preach the gospel?
The gospel is defined as the good news concerning Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). As nice as they sound, the statements “God loves you,” “God wants us to feed the hungry,” and “God wants you to be wealthy” are not the complete message of the gospel.
As Paul warns in Galatians 1:7, “Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.” No one, not even a great preacher, has the right to change the message that God gave us. “If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:9)
…..(Beth does preach a different gospel when she changes her mind about homosexuality) and says, “I made people feel demonized. I overshot scripture by a mile” and says that she “exceeded Scripture.”
(This is lessening the sexual sin they live in.)
The sinner must be made to realize the seriousness of sin before the mercy of God will become precious.
The most loving thing we can do is to tell him the truth. And the truth is that through the Gospel, a homosexual can join the “such were some of you.”
#3.)Does this teacher exhibit character qualities that glorify the Lord?
(No, Beth regularly shows Pride and rebellion. She doesn’t turn away from her mishandling of Scriptures or repent from it.)
Gotquestions: Jude 11 says, “They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s “rebellion.” In other words, a false teacher can be known by his “pride” (Cain’s “rejection” of God’s plan), “greed” (Balaam’s prophesying for money), and “rebellion” (Korah’s promotion of himself over Moses).
(Beth is certainly in “rebellion” and known for her “pride”. Beth has pridefully “rejected” the authority of Scriptures and rebelled against God’s commands by ignoring what God has said about women preaching and so much more.)
________________________________
(Examples of her “fabricated stories” that can not be linked to Scriptures found below.)
*She tells a story in a video about her being on a porch and God gave her a vision.
Beth said, “And tonight I’m going to do my absolute best to illustrate to you something that God showed me out on that back porch. He put a picture…I’ve explained to you before I am a very visual person…so He speaks to me very often of putting a picture in my head. And it was as if I was raised up looking down on a community, as I saw the church in that particular dimension- certainly not all dimensions, not even in many, but in what we will discuss tonight, the church, as Jesus sees it, in a particular dimension.”
(People, Beth is telling everyone, that God gave her a vision and special revelation that is not in Scriptures. It’s so dangerous to tag God’s name on something like that. )
*Then there is another story when Beth Moore says: “(God) began to say to me, ‘I’m gonna tell you something right now, Beth, and boy you write this one down, and you say it as often as I give you utterance to say it….'”
*Another story where Beth says God told her to brush an old man’s hair at an airport and she actually argues with God about it.
Where is her fear of the Lord???
*Another story she says, “Recently God spoke to me about capturing what He and I are calling “Sabbath moments.”
Like many of yours, my schedule right now is particularly tough, and I see no time in the near future for a number of days off. “God spoke to my heart” one Saturday morning while I was preparing for Sunday school: “My child, in between more intense rests, I want to teach you to take Sabbath moments.”
* Then in another video (which I mentioned earlier), Beth Moore Predicts God Will Unite All Sectors of Christendom.
She says, “I believe, that out of his great mercy, God is about to push this envelope with us…Listen, test the spirits and pray about this to see if it is so, but as clearly as I know how to discern what he has laid upon my heart I feel like I am bringing it to you as I understand it. But I think what we will see, if not now, very very soon, is him pushing this point with us, over and over and over, because I think it is very possible that what has satisfied you before will no longer satisfy you now.”
Scripture instead says this,
Romans 16:17~I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles “contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them”.
(Does she have correct biblical doctrine???)
*In another one, Beth says God tells her a future prophecy. You will hear Beth Moore talk about scoffers who will come and speak out against the awakening and downpours; the outpouring that she believes God is telling her is coming.
Beth quote:
“What God began to show me, is that it would not just come from the…mean spirited. The scoffers…I believe that God put on my heart…please test the spirit, pray and see if this…is confirmed to you in prayer and in the study of the Word… I believe that He placed it on my heart that the scoffers will have an alternative answer for everything; an alternative for every single thing we see…there will be an alternative. They will not see it as the hand of God; an alternate answer. Unity will be called defection. Brokenness will be called instability. Grace will be called a compromise. And the genuinely prophetic will be called false teaching. You see if this does not happen.” ~Beth
(Beth Moore has claimed over and over that she is receiving words from the Lord that are not found in Scriptures and she is also receiving very specific prophecies of future events from the Lord.)

___________________________________
From John MacArthur:
“False teaching denies the authenticity, inspiration, authority, or inerrancy of Scripture”.
(Beth disobeys when she preaches to men, her authority is not Scriptures, she puts words in God’s mouth that God did not say, such as, we were all created to have a supreme romance with God, then she injects herself into stories of the Bible. )
John MacArthur:
“False teachers are not committed to Scripture. They may speak of Jesus and the Father, but the heart of their ministry will not be the Word of God. They will either add to it, take away from it, interpret it in some heretical fashion, add other “revelations” to it, or deny it altogether.”
(Beth Moore isn’t committed to Scriptures when she rebels against God’s commands and adds to God’s Scriptures with her personal revelations.)

(This quote below is one I already touched on earlier where she speaks of Beth changing her belief on homosexuality.
From Justin Peter’s site. Link below)
* Beth wrote this many years ago where she said, “I have wonderful news for anyone who has struggled with homosexual sin, God indeed can deliver you and anxiously awaits your full cooperation”.
(Yes, I agree with Beth on this….. the Gospel means Good News and she is sharing the gospel to the sinners but, then some years later she feels bad and changes her mind and even has it removed from her book.
When being questioned about her belief on homosexuality she makes this comment).
Beth explains, “I made people feel demonized. I overshot scripture by a mile” and adds that she “exceeded Scripture and singled out same-sex sin as particularly satanic.”
Why did she change her mind?? She said, “She did so because she worried about what it would do to a “13-year-old struggling with an onslaught of sexual feelings and temptations who has no idea what to do with them”.
She should have never removed that section! If she truly cares about that 13-year-old then she should want her to be confronted with her sin. Beth Moore should want her to realize she is a sinner who faces the wrath of God. And Beth Moore should want her to know that complete forgiveness and transformation are freely offered in the glorious Gospel of Christ. The sinner must be made to realize the seriousness of sin before the mercy of God will become precious.
One wonders if Beth Moore really does believe that homosexuality – not just the behavior, but the identity and desire – truly is a deadly sin.
One wonders if she truly does believe that homosexuals can be completely transformed and if she really does “know plenty of believers who have been set free from homosexuality.” If she has indeed witnessed it and does indeed know all of these many people set free from this sin, why, why why would she remove that section?
1 Corinthians 6:9–11 ~Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will …
People are not lost because they are homosexual. They are homosexual because they are lost. The most hateful thing we could do to anyone is to know the truth but not tell him. The most loving thing we can do is to tell him the truth. And the truth is that through the Gospel, a homosexual can join the “such were some of you.”
Justin Peter’s write up https://justinpeters.org/2019/07/my-thoughts-on-beth-moores-blog-post/
(Answer this? How does her earlier statement make homosexuals feel demonized when what she was saying was the Good News, the Gospel?
Here it is: “I have wonderful news for anyone who has struggled with homosexual sin, God indeed can deliver you and anxiously awaits your full cooperation”.
Did she truly “overshoot scripture by a mile there”? Is preaching the Gospel to the lost overshooting Scriptures? Do you believe she “exceeded Scripture and singled out same-sex sin as particularly satanic.”
Well, is sharing the Gospel with sinners meant to help the sinner see their sin as evil? Yes! That’s not wrong to show them they are indeed a sinner that is wretched and filthy. But she’s saying that’s wrong.
The Gospel saves people and more times than not it hurts the sinners to hear how they deserve hell but Jesus was punished for them. That’s what makes the gift of salvation precious to them.
When she recanted her older belief of sharing the Good News, THAT is when she exceeded Scriptures.
That is when she denied Jesus and the Gospel.
What she teaches today about homosexuality is silencing the truth which does them no favors and denies them forgiveness and hope in Jesus. They need to find salvation through the truth of the gospel, not ear tickles.
Here is a link that discusses the letter to Beth about her beliefs on homosexuality.
My friend Michelle Lesley shares this:

Here is another link where my dear friend Marsha West has shared
Beth calling an open homosexual a brother. Very concerning!

Beth Moore, Sam Allberry Promote Gay Activists, Calls Them “Brothers”


__________________________________
(The verse below addresses who are truly brothers and sisters on Christ.)
Matthew 12:48-50 ~
But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
The qualifier for being a brother or sister of Christ is “doing the will of the Father.” The ultimate will of the Father is that we love, trust, and obey His Son (John 3:36; 2 Thessalonians 1:8; Romans 2:7–8). When we believe in our hearts the gospel of Jesus Christ and surrender our lives to His lordship, God adopts us into His family and considers us “joint-heirs” with His Son, Jesus (Romans 8:17; 10:9–10).
* (So is Beth doing the will of the Father? No)
*(Is she loving, trusting and obeying the Son? The answer is from John 14:15-16~ “if you love me you will keep my commandments”. Think carefully about this.
She’s not keeping His commandments which means she is not “obeying” Him AND that means she must not “love” Him either-or “trust” God as the authority.)
*(Does she believe in the biblical gospel of Jesus Christ?
No!
If she did then she would be sharing the gospel to homosexuals and not remove the part of her book that shows her sharing the gospel. She would be more concerned about their souls then hurting their feelings with the truth.)
*(Has Beth surrendered her life to Jesus? Well, does she conform to what is written? No)
*(So answer yourself…looking at that verse, is she a sister in Christ? )

Paul Washer says, “The Devil uses men to advance his cause against the Kingdom of Christ.”
There are two proclaimers, one is men of truth and the other side are proclaimers of lies.
“They are liars because they do not speak according to what is written.”
False teachers do the following:
* “Young man when you get up into the Pulpit, no one needs to hear from your heart, they need to hear from God’s Word.” (Beth talks all the time about what’s on her heart.)
* “They are hypocritical because they pretend to have a spirituality that is from God but in actuality at best their spirituality is carnal and at worst, it’s demonic”. (The voices Beth hears could be demonic because we know it’s not biblical. )
* “How do you know if one’s spirituality is from God? Because it conforms to what is written.”
(Beth has a hard time doing that.)
* They trivialize the gospel with material prosperity and self-realization.
* Deny the gospel by diminishing the uniqueness of Christ.
* People such as Beth want to unite all religions. Paul Washer says, “They would share in each others Gods and affirm one another”. (Sounds familiar when you see those videos)
* when a church uses anything but the gospel to draw people to the church. ( Beth drawing people by using personal revelations or visions from God…. a fabricated story of God speaking)

(We do need to be praying for Beth that she would repent and obey God’s Word. I do not wish to hurt her, I don’t enjoy exposing her or the conflict that it causes.
However, God has commanded we warn of false teachings, mark those that deceive and expose them.
I’m trying to help people from being lead astray by her unbiblical teachings just as I was. If it wasn’t for Justin Peter’s sharing truth of false teachers I’d probably still be in it.)

Tulips & Honey: Episode 15 – Christology, Discernment, & a Weird Viral Video

Before I get into the details, dear ones, I’d like to give you all an update on Iris. If you’ve been following along on the blog or podcast you’ll recall that Iris has stage 4 thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs. She’s having surgery this Wednesday and I’d ask that you all be in prayer for her, her doctors, and her family. With two little ones at home, I can’t imagine how difficult this must be for her and for her husband. She has expressed her anxiety, alongside her faith in Gods sovereignty. She begins the blood work at 6:15am in Houston, TX. Beloved, join me in praying for this dear sister. Thank you for praying for Iris, you can support her through social media as well. She’s on Instagram and Facebook. If you can, let her know that you are bringing her and her family before the throne. Here is her GoFundMe account.

I missed last Friday’s MEGA list due to some very unfortunate plumbing issues. It started out small, and ended up with a lot of machinery and mess. I’m thankful for plumbers! Even the ones that curse loudly after dropping something on their foot. I do apologize for not updating you all on this weeks podcast topics. Today’s is on Christology, which was brought to our attention after a specific video went viral on Facebook. Thursday we will be dropping our interview with Professor Nancy Pearcey. If you missed it, Friday saw the third episode of The Chuck & Lo Show drop! They interviewed Sean Demar from American Gospel. Tomorrow The Aquila & Priscilla Hour will also drop their third episode, Don’t miss it. You can keep up with all the T&H Hub podcasts through the website 5Solas.Online and also through their own websites linked above.

For today’s episode Becca and I dissected a recent video in which a man claims to have seem a spirit form of Jesus that had no bones or flesh and was surrounded by a beautiful Aura. We discussed discernment and the need for testing these videos as well as getting deep into the doctrine of Christology. I hope this will be educational as well as entertaining. If you have any questions or show suggestions please let me know. You can find our podcast on YouTube, Podbean, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, and iTunes. As always, beloved Brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Tulips & Honey: Episode 14 – Beth Moore, False Teachers, & Women Preachers

Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Today I dropped the 14th episode of Tulips & Honey. Hopefully by now the recent events surrounding Moore have calmed down enough for us all to sit down and have a genuine conversation about whether or not she should be teaching. Thats what Becca and I do on this episode. Not only do we discuss what a false teacher is, but we also go into detail about how someone might go from teaching soundly to ignoring Scripture outright.

During the episode we gave a few recommended teachers in place of Moore. These included Doreen Virtue and Melissa Dougherty, Michelle Lesley and Amy Spreeman, DebbieLynn Kespert, Coleen Sharp, Michelle & Betsy, and Elizabeth Prata. The links for these ladies are listed below.

We also touched on what recently happened with Justin Peters leaving Twitter. I hope that this will continue to encourage better behavior from believers on social media. We also want to show how many other, better, options there are for women to learn from one another. You can find this episode on YouTube, iTunes, Podbean, Google Play, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Wednesday Testimony – Greg Sukert: Broken & Redeemed

Hello, dear friends, I hope this post finds you all doing well. If you’re listeners of Tulips & Honey then you heard Greg’s testimony when he joined us on the program. To be honest, it was hard for me not to stop the interview and give God praise with weeping and rejoicing. What kind of love is this? That while we were yet sinners Christ died for us! That fact alone will take all of eternity to comprehend, beloved. Below is Greg’s testimony as he has written out here. Greg is the co-founder and executive director of Anchored North, you can check out their videos here. He’s also a co-host of a very fascinating podcast, where they go through viral videos and look at them from a Christian worldview, you can listen here.


My Testimony

There are many painful memories I have that bring me to tears of both sorrow and joy, and they remind me of Christ’s redeeming love and my desperate need for Him.

I was a man enslaved to anger, hatred, and suicidal thoughts. I have caused immense pain and suffering for others by lashing out at them, manipulating them, and abusing them emotionally.

The woman I started dating during my junior year of high school was the victim of my explosive rage. It started out unassuming, and over three years it intensified to never-ending episodes of insults, personal attacks, and emotional games.

Desperate for change, and having just moved to a new church, she gave me an ultimatum: Either you come with me to church or we break up. I agreed to go, and on August 5, 2012, I walked into Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills for the first time.

However, months later my anger still hadn’t departed, so she did. It was over.

But rather than leaving the church that I had never wanted to attend in the first place, something started to happen: I began feeling a sweeping sense of my wickedness and depravity. I was so empty and ashamed of myself that I couldn’t get out of bed without reading the Bible. My hard heart was breaking, and I kept going to church by myself, despite the awkwardness and pain of seeing her and her family who were still attending. God’s Word was the only place I found hope.

Alone in my room a few months later, I was deleting pictures of the ceased relationship when I came across a video that she made in which she was so excited and full of joy. Immediately, I flashed back to the night she broke up with me; I had been yelling in a fit of rage up until the point that she screamed, “I feel broken.” These many months later, I finally understood how damaging my life had been, and I broke down crying.

In that moment, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that heaven was real and that hell was real. Not only was hell real, but I knew I deserved to go there. Not only did I deserve to go there, but I would send myself there. It was like a villain had stepped out of a book he was in, read the book, and realized that he indeed was the villain.

By the grace of God, it didn’t end there. In that afternoon’s moment, everything changed. My eyes were opened to recognize Christ’s righteousness and His standard of complete goodness according to the Bible. My vicious heart was exposed before me, and I cried out for His forgiveness.

As an arrogant, verbally abusive man, I never knew an ounce of guilt or sorrow. But under the conviction of God’s Word, guilt and sorrow was all I knew.

For the next few hours, every sentence in the human language disappeared except these three: “I’m so sorry for my destruction, God. You have to change my heart. I’m not leaving here until you do.”

As streams of water poured from my eyes, living water filled my soul.

Now one simple truth defines me: Jesus Christ lived, died, and resurrected to take the penalty for my sins.

Since this day, I have never been the same.

It is with tears of joy falling down my face that I testify that this same church I walked into unwillingly six years ago is the same church that is sending me to seminary.


Greg is a dear brother in Christ, and I ask that you would please join me in praying for him and his new bride as they go through seminary together. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
