1. Dear Beth Moore, thank you so much for your article at this heart-breaking time! True, our hope is in our Lord Jesus Christ!

    May God continue to bless your ministry!

  2. Beth, that was so well written, thank you. The body of Christ needs to take note of this and truly act in love. We appreciate you.

  3. Amen!

  4. Bless you and Thank you – I am encouraged-

  5. Beth, I agree completely. There is a distinct and deep pain in feeling “Christians’ inhumanity to Christians” – because the Body is supposed to be where we are safe. So much of this, however, comes out of reward-based theology – this idea that God only rewards goodness, and God always punishes sin. So if a person is not getting “the good stuff” in life, others believe they can remote-diagnose sinfulness and call it out in so-called “righteousness.” (And it’s so much easier to judge “them” than ourselves.) I may not agree with Rick Warren’s theology or his politics – but I would never attack his humanity, his home, and his pain in the way “good Christians” are doing. I hope the Warrens can find encouragement from those who love them to carry them through this.

    What an amazing read! Believers need to take heed!

  7. Wow! This post was full of life-giving truth. Thank you Beth!!

  8. we need to hear more of this from the pulpit. Been here myself

  9. Beautifully spoken, Beth. Thank you for sharing this.

  10. Amen!! We must judge ourselves, not each other. May the Lord gain each believer to truly love as He loved. They will know that we are His disciples when we have love for each other. Lord have mercy on your church. Cause us to love as you do.

  11. Well said, Beth. Let’s all do better to love instead of pointing fingers of judgement upon one another. They will know us by our love for one another.
