The church is divided. Contrary to the formation of the original church, the modern church has over 33,000 denominations, with more being formed every day. It seems that denominations can even be formed over small disputes in the church, something as little as a theological dispute. That’s not a big deal, right?
Remember this? Well, three months later, what are your thoughts on both Mr. MacArthur’s words and this post?
A few weeks ago, John MacArthur told Beth Moore to “go home”. Ok, wait. Slow down. What?
Yes. It’s true. John MacArthur did actually say “go home”. While at the Truth Matters Conference, meant to honor MacArthur and his fifty years of service in the Church, a small group of men, including MacArthur, were asked to play a word association game. As a warmup, the MC asked MacArthur what words he associated with the words “Beth Moore”. MacArthur’s prompt response was, “go home”.
He then followed that up by saying, “There is no case that can be made biblically for a woman preacher – period, paragraph, end of discussion” (Koslosky 2019).
Pastor John MacArthur, world-renowned pastor and author, recipient of the Gold Medallion Book Award, says that Beth Moore needs to go home. And, just in case you were wondering, Pastor MacArthur was talking about this Beth Moore.
