Fame sometimes takes a toll on people’s mental health, and perhaps no one in American evangelicalism is as famous as Beth Moore. Almost daily, the women’s Bible study leader turned Social Justice advocate and charismatic prophetess gets more and more bizarre in her social media posts which, unlike her Bible study material, is not put through the LifeWay’s sieve and filter.
The wild-eyed prophetess has claimed God spoke to her to brush an old man’s hair, told her to give money to random people, and told her to write down words of direct revelation to give her audience. In spite of going off the theological edge, Moore remains popular among the power-establishment in evangelicalism as a symbol of useful idiocy. Moore stands in the gap between Evangelical Intelligentsia leaders like Russell Moore and Ed Stetzer and with charismatic NAR leaders like Joyce Meyer and Christine Caine. In evangelicalism, Beth Moore is the bridge that falls over the broad path and wide gate.
For this reason, many women are breaking free of Beth Moore, insisting that their churches stop using her material because she is fundamentally theologically unsound and growing increasingly bizarre.
Moore recently posted a photo of her kissing a donkey on the snout as a part of an ostensible tribute to the crucifixion of Christ.
Moore appears to be referencing Matthew 21:7, in which Jesus came into Jerusalem at his Triumphant Entry on a donkey’s colt, which was a fulfillment of prophecy given in Zechariah 9:9.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Kissing donkeys for the camera in some kind of Palm Sunday tribute is one of the latest signs that Moore may be slipping from reality. The only question is how many women she’ll take with her when she slips all the way.
