TEXAS PASTRIXES: APOSTATE BETH MOORE & PRO SODOMY JEN HATMAKER SHARE FIDELITY ON TWITTER
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Jen Hatmaker is the popular mommy-blogger and evangelical preacher
who was once part of the in-crowd of lady pastors on the mysti-chick
speaking circuit. That was, until 2016 when she told Jonathan Merritt (a
popular Christian journalist who has had his own homosexual encounters)
that she supported sodomy-based marriages and claimed that they could
be “holy.” She then took to the blogoshere to encourage churches to give
sodomites full inclusion (ostensibly, including membership). Since
then, Lifeway “Christian” Resources dropped her material (which was
about time, considering we were warning you of Jen Hatmaker for years.
Since then, Lifeway “Christian” Resources dropped her material (which
was about time, considering we were warning you of Jen Hatmaker for
years). Hatmaker has had to change crowds, with many of the conservative
evangelical female fans moving on to other gurus, but she has been
embraced by the likes of sodomy-soft evangelicals like Tony Compolo,
David Neff (the former editor of Christianity Today) and David Gushee.
However, don’t think for a second that Hatmaker has lost the full
fidelity and support of her good friend, Beth Moore. Moore, who is still
Lifeway’s best-selling author, is acting like nothing at all has
happened regarding Hatmaker’s plunge into apostasy.
Leaving an altogether nonsensical if unhelpful, seemingly random thought of nonsense on her Twitter account, the Cash Cow of Bashan
said that she didn’t much care for “ianity” in “Christianity,”
preferring just the “Christ.” Of course, the “ian” was added to “Christ”
in the town of Antioch in Acts 11:26.
The “ian” is a Biblical term that was applied to Christians in the
first Gentile church. So, a couple thousand years of church tradition
enshrined in the Holy Scripture, Beth Moore is not “into.”
One assumes that Moore is speaking about organized religion (as
though there were any other kind), church membership, elders, deacons,
or some kind of official church structure. Presumptively, Moore was
echoing the sentiment of Mahatma Ghandi, “I like your Christ, but I do
not like your Christians.” This pagan expression has been recently
turned into, “I love Christ, but I don’t like organized religion.”
Of course, Christ organized his religion, so the comment makes no
sense. Nonetheless, Beth Moore isn’t into the Christianity that has made
her into a multi-millionaire. Nah, she’s just into Jesus.
Jen Hatmaker – who rightly should have been disfellowshiped anyone
with a semblance of understanding of godly separation or holiness,
marked as one who causes division by giving contrary doctrines (Romans 16:17) – reached out to Moore, calling here shedding of Christ-“ianity” a “relief.”
Hatmaker says, “It actually feels like a relief. I swear to you on a
stack of Life Application Study Bibles that Jesus is the only thing that
made sense to me this year. I cry when I think about Him.”
Hatmaker has turned herself into a victim of the evangelical
establishment, a poor woman who just wanted to love the marginalized
when she was systematically persecuted by Christians who summarily
kicked her out of their club for no good reason. None of that makes
sense to her. Jesus does, however, make sense to her.
Beth’s response was, “I love you, Jen.”
But does Jesus really make sense to Hatmaker? Regarding sodomy-based marriage, Hatmaker said…
From a spiritual perspective, since gay marriage is legal
in all 50 states, our communities have plenty of gay couples who, just
like the rest of us, need marriage support and parenting help and
Christian community. They are either going to find those resources in
the church or they are not.
Not only are these our neighbors and friends, but they are brothers
and sisters in Christ. They are adopted into the same family as the rest
of us, and the church hasn’t treated the LGBT community like family
When asked if she would attend a gay wedding, she said…
I would attend that wedding with gladness, and I would
drink champagne. I want the very best for my gay friends. I want love
and happiness and faithfulness and commitment and community. Yes. That’s
an easy answer.
Does it seem like Jesus really makes sense to Hatmaker? No,
in fact it seems like Jesus makes no sense to Hatmaker, and her Jesus is
a false one. And while it’s perfectly acceptable to express love even
to the greatest of heretics, it should be incumbent upon Moore to give
at least some kind (even the most mild variety) of rebuke to Hatmaker.
Instead, Moore has been utterly quiet about her good friend’s departure
from Biblical Christianity.
Hatmaker is essentially running a marathon with hell as the finish
line, and Moore is offering her little cups of Gatorade along the way.
