A divisive topic in Christian ministry has come to the forefront recently. Facebook and Twitter feeds are lit up with the controversy over Evangelical Minister John MacArthur’s comments that Beth Moore should stop preaching and “go home.”
He sat on a panel of all-male ministers who openly mocked Moore—saying that she is narcissistic, and that she is hawking the Gospel like a TV jewelry peddler.
Moore responded saying, “Here’s the beautiful thing about it & I mean this with absolute respect. You don’t have to let me serve you. That gets to be your choice. Whether or not I serve Jesus is not up to you. Whether I serve you certainly is. One way or the other, I esteem you as my sibling in Christ.”
