Beth Moore’s caveat that “all Scripture is inspired and authoritative truth” should not satisfy her critics, for all the aforementioned Red Letter liberals -from Wallis to McLaren – would echo her sentiments. But, they would say, if forced to choose between Jesus and Paul, we should choose Jesus. Orthodox believers in Jesus recognize that we are never forced to choose between Jesus and Paul.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) In her latest slide into apostasy, Beth Moore ‘cast shade’ upon the Apostle Paul, who wrote 13 of the New Testament’s 27 books. Claiming that she would rather follow Jesus than Paul, as though the two disagree, the wild-eyed Social Justice princess just ventured down a damnable doctrinal road.
As Beth Moore becomes increasingly liberal in her political views, she seems to be embracing the theology of other liberal “Christians” of the Red Letter Christian Movement who disrespect the Apostle Paul and his writings in favor of a modern, liberalized view of Jesus’ teachings.
This movement was founded by Jim Wallis, Tony Compolo, Brian McLaren, and Shane Claiborne. The doctrinal premise of the Red Letter Christian Movement is that the words of Jesus should be focused upon more heavily than that of the Apostle Paul, and although they are not necessarily more inspired, they are more weighty in their authority.
