So Long, Insecurity
Whether God chooses to heal the believer or call them to their eternal home, our true security is in knowing that God is sovereign in all things. The Roman Catholic Church preaches a false gospel that teaches that we are not saved by grace alone, but by grace and our works. Moore, however, falsely believes followers of the Roman Catholic Church are fellow Christians despite their denial of this essential doctrine of saving faith. That loss does not have to be permanent Moore, p. Why does she focus on our security? We are secure in Christ and what He has accomplished for us on the cross.
Moore needs to share the gospel of eternal life in Jesus Christ, not her man-centered method to regain your security. And, no, that security will not be permanent if you die in your sins. As the apostle Paul inferred, children are supposed to talk like children, think like children, and reason like children 1 Corinthians When they are forced to grow up too quickly, they lose something that no one can give back Moore, p.
This is more eisegesis by Moore. This passage is not about loss of innocence, but about growing in faith, knowledge, and love. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. In this subsection on rejection, Moore continues with her Scripture twisting. Jesus Himself warned that He will reject people:. Redeemed from what? And the context continues to be about our getting better. The truth is, God uses change to change us. God is thoroughly committed to finishing the masterpiece He started in us Philippians Moore, p.
More Scripture twisting. The work God started in the people of Philippi was their participation in the gospel Philippians God began their salvation and He will finish it. It is NOT about changing the way we feel about where we are.

The gospel truth is that God can free you from the bondage of sin through faith in Jesus Christ. It is not about giving you vision in your life. Life really is hard. No one can escape it. No one is unscathed by it. But we are not just flailing aimlessly in a universal back hole.

There is purpose. There is order—because there is God Moore, p. This is a much better explanation of where our Christian security can be found. Instead it is placed among the ideas that life is scary and we are insecure. This chapter focuses on the insecurity brought on by media exploitation of women in America p. The least we can do is … look for a reasonable ethic to live by. The One who created us in His own image and then bragged about His own handiwork extends such an ethic to us, but we have to be willing to redirect our preoccupations Moore, p.
Of course, this was before the fall of man into sin.

Having an ethic to live by and redirecting our preoccupations do not solve the sin problem. Notice the focus is on our value, our rights, our purpose, our significance, the enormous within us, and our greatness. God has entrusted each of us—male and female—with a brief measure of time on this planet, and each season is meant to be lived abundantly, effectively, powerfully, and pricelessly. Try putting it [media] aside for awhile, and once you get past the initial withdrawal, see if you feel better about the person God made you to be Moore, pp.
That very need is built into our human hard drive to send us on a search for our Creator, who can assign us more significance than we can handle. He not only notices us, He never takes His eyes off us. Every now and then a moment of clarity hits us, and we feel known by something—Someone—of inestimable greatness … In the radiance of His greatness, we are made great.
Our search is over and our egos silenced. He is the reason we are here. And finally our souls are at rest Moore, pp. More important, humility is the heart of the great paradox: we find our lives when we lose them to something much larger. In the hearts of mortals. Created in the image of God, we instinctively know that something enormous is within us Moore, p.kick-cocoa.info/components/sihicehos/na-controllare-il.php
So Long, Insecurity: You've Been A Bad Friend To Us
The purpose and focus of creation, history, and the Bible is not you or me, but Jesus. Every time I do, I sense the glorious God-given release that follows repentance Moore, p. They have hijacked our healing. A clear heart and a clean path are still only one sincere confession away Moore, p. It is definitely true that our culture, and even many so-called Christian churches, have eliminated the idea of personal sin. However, confession and repentance alone will not solve the problems associated with any of our sins, including pride. We must combine them with faith in Jesus Christ for forgiveness.
Moore neglects to make the necessary connection. The type of language usually reserved for discussing God delivering us from sin and death is hijacked and applied to delivering us from insecurity and the problems in our lives. When we wrap up this journey, many of you may well have decided to cooperate with divine healing Moore, p.
So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us by Beth Moore
Rather than obtaining our security from feelings, visions, or new words from God, we should look to the Bible. I have to keep reminding myself and other women that God thinks we are beautiful no matter what. He is enthralled with our beauty Moore, p. Unless He looks upon us and sees our sin. This is just more man-centered theology to feel better about ourselves. He [God] also knows the resilience with which He made us and the innate capacity within each one of us to be restored … He knows we are not nearly as fragile as we think we are, but we will act like who we believe ourselves to be.
About This Item
He knows we have the capacity to be astoundingly extraordinary Moore, pp. Restoration is within us? He has enough security for both of us, and for those of us who call Christ Savior, He slipped His own secure Spirit within our simple jars of clay. It is in you to be secure, dear one. You have it in you Moore, p. Is security innate in all people or does it come from the Holy Spirit residing within believers only?
This is another example of continual confusion that Moore promotes as she switches back and forth between discussing believers and all people. Unfortunately, we have already seen that Moore believes this God-given dignity is in all people. How did anyone lose it? By not valuing themselves? It continues to be a muddled mess of non-Biblical teaching.
She combines Biblical words, God, popular psychology and personal revelation with people who are basically good but just need a little help. This is the gospel of pragmatism—try this new belief system because it works. She has been practicing these techniques for several months and look at the progress she has made! Our security should come from our position in Christ Jesus and the promises of Scripture, not our own dignity. Yes, in the Bible the church is called the bride of Christ, but that does not mean that women get to extend that metaphor to the point that Jesus is functioning as their personal romantic love interest.
That God would highlight this verse [Proverbs ] highlight this passage for our decidedly female journey was tremendously touching to me Moore, p. Accepts you just way you are? The Holy Spirit continues the work of sanctification to make us more like Him. If God accepted us as we were, He would not be working to change us. We are not nearly as likely to react with the same level of insecurity when we remember how well covered we are by God Moore, p.
Yes, but this idea has not been even remotely supported by Scripture that explains what that covering means. If Christ is your Savior, sister, you are completely covered by a cloak of strength Moore, pp. The Ephesians and Romans texts are about putting off your old sinful nature and putting on the righteousness and holiness of Christ.
They are not about giving you divine power and strength. These are not complicated passages to decipher—you only need to read a couple verses of context. We have dignity precisely because God Himself gave it to us, His prized creation.
