Gabriel Hughes responds to an email he received defending Beth Moore. He concludes his piece by saying:
I’ve written this response to you for two reasons. Number one, that you may know that calling out false teachers is not unloving. In fact, it is one of the responsibilities of pastors out of love for Jesus and for His flock. Number two, in order to demonstrate that Beth Moore’s most basic, average teaching is not Bible teaching. It’s Beth Moore teaching. Again, I agree with you that she “is clearly doing what she thinks God wants her to do.” But what she thinks isn’t good enough. What does God say in His word, the Bible?
Here’s the email Gabe responded to:
Somehow I stumbled onto all this vitriol about Beth Moore, someone I’d never even heard of before last week. I watched a video interview of Susan Heck—also a newcomer to me—and frankly her self-righteousness made me sick to my stomach. Same with all these other articles slamming Ms. Moore. She is clearly doing what she thinks God wants her to do. Where, I ask, did you all miss the Biblical exhortation that “the greatest of these is love”? There is no love in your critiques—none—despite your protestations to the contrary.
Thank you for taking the time to read my article on Beth Moore and for sending your e-mail. I agree with you: Beth “is clearly doing what she thinks God wants her to do.” And what she thinks is wrong. Friend, the Bible says, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1).
