This is a Christian blog dealing with various issues. “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” -Charles Spurgeon. Scripture is my authority for all things regarding to life and godliness. 2 Cor. 10: 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Beth Moore Complains About Public Accountability For Public Statements
"If you felt God has spoken something specific to you"? Felt it? What does that feel like, exactly? So its just a feeling, not something you'd claim as fact, as a non-negotiable, not something you'd die on the hill for, eh?
Consider that's part of the problem Beth.
What you thought was God speaking a revelation or showing you a vision, wasn't HIM. God never goes against His true and faithful Word. This is true regarding women teaching men, regarding psycho-heresy, or about using pagan practices for "worship" of God, or about including Roman Catholics/RCC within HIS family (they have a false gospel and are full of idolatry, by very definition).
A prophet in the OT did not waver when God spoke something to him to proclaim to Israel. So your lack of confidence that that was truly God perhaps is actually revealing itself...which would be a good thing, indeed. Time to repent.
You SHOULD fear what you say...you are unqualified as a teacher (you twisted Hebrews 13:25 horribly) nor are you hearing from HIM, yet you speak these things and plaster HIS holy name onto them.
When you make public statements so boldly and in-your-face, do not cry "martyr!" when you are caught being unfaithful to Scripture. You aren't a martyr. You are committing mutiny.
By your public teaching, you automatically are to be tested publicly.
