Beth Moore’s feud with the Southern Baptist Convention didn’t last long. After last year’s departure from the denomination, because it would not allow women to preach in pulpits, she announced that she was “no longer a Southern Baptist” and canceled her contract with LifeWay.
Apparently, however, she’s weaseling her way back in.
After the 2022 Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting, it became clear that only a small minority of Southern Baptists actually take the Scriptures seriously and believe that the pulpit is reserved for men. The convention declined to take action against Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church which ordained three women to the pastorate last year.
Now that it has become clear that the Southern Baptist Convention will allow women to preach and hold the office of pastorate without correction or discipline, Moore has seized the opportunity to preach in a Southern Baptist megachurch in Houston.
Yesterday, Moore announced she would “have the joy of being at South Main” on Sunday.
She then announced on Sunday that not only was she present at South Main, a Southern Baptist Congregation in Houston, but she was “serving there.”
Well, by “serving,” she didn’t just mean “making lunch kits,” she meant preaching—a clear violation of Scripture as well as the Southern Baptist Convention’s official statement of faith.
South Main Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist church in Houston that is pastored by Steve Wells. And the associate pastor, who goes by the title “Executive Minister,” is…you guessed it…a woman. Her name is Susan Moore.
Here is Beth Moore preaching the Sunday morning service at South Main as part of the church’s “All Summer Long” series.
She then followed up her Sunday morning sermon by belittling her husband on Twitter:
