In nearly ten years of blogging, I just did something I have never done before. I deleted the content of a string of comments on one of my blog posts.
It has been my practice to post ALL comments, whether agreeable or not, in the interest of fairness. Believe me, I am not bothered by negative comments. BUT, in this case, there was entirely too much angry criticism (all from people who would not reveal their real identities) about one little crack made by a reader in a comment that had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POINT OF MY POST. In fact, several of the anonymous comments may have been from the same person. Never-the-less they became unnecessary distractions from the content.
It has been five years since I posted the article about Beth Moore. And, out of 750 posts, it has been the most read, outranking number two by nearly three times. Obviously, Beth Moore is an extremely controversial subject.
My reason for the original post was made clear in the opening paragraph. I was warned by my (former) church leadership to keep quiet about any negative criticism regarding the errant teachings of Beth Moore. So, since I don't respond well to threats, I posted the tongue-in-cheek, Defense Of Beth Moore in a manner that utilized absurdity to illustrate the absurd. That was my one and only post about Mrs. Moore and I have remained silent for five years.
But she has not. Recently I noticed another, sudden increase in interest in my blog post. And no wonder - she's at it again. In a recent conference she, once again, has announced new revelation that she has received straight from the mouth of God. And this time, amid clever scripture twisting, she assures thousands of her followers that she is the real prophet and warns them that scoffers will arise to criticize her and God's new "outpouring."
For anyone finding their way onto my blog in search of information about Beth Moore's extra-biblical revelation and false prophecies, I would suggest the following links:
