New Gospel vs. Old Gospel and Paul's warning to Timothy

Beth Moore preaches Beth Moore. Her studies and talks and tv show are solely about her. This is what a brother in the faith said yesterday, Chris Rosebrough, not about Beth Moore specifically but about the scourge of falsity penetrating the church these days:

"The old gospel is about humble, contrite and repentant faith. The new gospel is about audacious faith."

"The old gospel is about repentance & forgiveness of sins by Christ's blood. The new gospel is about behavior modification & the cross is not needed."

"The old gospel was about our need for an imputed righteousness; the new gospel is about satisfying our craving for significance."

"The old gospel regenerates sinners born dead in trespasses & sin. The new gospel improves the lives of people who are "basically good".

"The old gospel was about penal substitution. The new gospel is about life coaching."

"The old gospel was about sin; the new gospel is about meeting felt needs."

"The old gospel was about an offended God; the new gospel is about a wounded and victimized humanity."

Balanced against the old foundational doctrines like that, you can see easily that Beth Moore preaches a new Gospel.

The Word is pure and true. Jesus said that false teachers would come, that doctrines of demons would enter, that they would not stand for sound doctrine but want tickled ears and heap up teachers who preach it. Etc. His word is true and though it is devastating to see the impact of these false teachings, it is satisfying to rely on God's word when it is proved true over and over again, even in a negative way like this issue is.

If you are not at a good church now, I can recommend some good and biblical preachers online.

John MacArthur
Don Green
Phil Johnson

Steve Lawson
Paul Washer
Justin Peters: "A call for discernment, a biblical critique of the Word-Faith movement"

They are also all over YouTube too. You can trust these preachers in how they handle the word. But don't believe me, listen for yourself and be a Berean :)

Here is a wonderful preaching on The Dangers of Apostasy by Steve Lawson. I really enjoy Pastor Lawson's preaching, I've listened to much of what is available online and then I listened to it over again! Here he delves into the verses from 2 Timothy 3:1-5,

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

Pastor Lawson explains that the conditions Paul warns Timothy about in the the last days are not just societal conditions, but conditions of apostasy that will be present in the church. A must listen



The aggressive rise in falsity we detect in our church tells me that Jesus will soon come. O come Lord Jesus!!

  1. Rightly Dividing the Word is a practice of a wise Berean!
    You might appreciate Bro. Jordan take on this regarding The TRUE VINE: http://www.youtube.com/user/designsbydianne

    Thanks for this posting. Some women are hard supporters of Beth and take it personally if anything negative is stated about her. A division causing topic within the Body.

  2. Hello Anonymous,

    Thanks for the comment. Also thanks for the clip from the pastor you sent. He seemed knowledgeable from the few minutes seen on the clip.

  3. While reading this, Galations 1:6 came to mind:

    I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
    (Galatians 1:6-9 ESV)
