Christian speaker and author Beth Moore has warned that the Christian church has to find how to deal with a culture that is “under sexual assault by the evil one,” in the face of mass revelations of sexual assault and harassment from every corner of society.
“We, the church, are dealing with the fall-out of a culture that is, in effect, under sexual assault by the evil one. Never forget: God’s plan for the repentant is ALWAYS restoration. Even the most spiritual can be had. (Gal.6:1) Fallenness does not always indicate fraudulence,” Moore said Monday on Twitter.
In a follow-up post she added: “Fallenness always indicates foolishness. And, make no mistake. We can all be fools. These are days of satanic seduction. We must humbly submit ourselves to ongoing accountability, sanctification and fortification. A Christlike seriousness regarding repentance & restoration BOTH.”
The evangelist and founder of Living Proof Ministries was one of a number of Christian leaders, along with hosts of other women, to share their stories of abuse back in October under the #MeToo hashtag online.
Hundreds upon hundreds of other women have also talked about rape, sexual abuse and harassment that they suffered inside church or at the hands of Christian men in leadership, this time under the #churchtoo hashtag in November.
Major Hollywood producers, actors, and comedians, big name television hosts, and numerous politicians have all been caught in an ever-expanding net, revealing a variety of sexual abuse and harassment allegations made by victims.
Moore said in another tweet last week: “Daily unveiling of depravity. Mighty trees cut to stumps. Repugnant, nauseating sins. Suddenly, flashbacks of failure, a present illicit desire, a relapse, secret. Our own grotesqueness in the mirror. We too. Cut down. Despair. ‘None is righteous!’ Then 1 more unveiling: a cross.”
She further warned that there is a “sick line of shared reasoning on perpetual repeat in the minds of racists, bigots, white supremacists, misogynists & sexists: If we give them an inch, they’ll take a mile.”
“Here’s the shocker: It’s not your inch. Claiming ownership over God’s property is perilous hubris,” Moore wrote.
