Statement from Beth Moore

If any of you have been watching Ingrids site you have heard of this new DVD coming that promotes contemplative prayer.

http://www.sliceoflaodicea.com/archives/2006/04/evangelical_lea.php
I was really saddened to see Beths name on their because I have read some of her books and she always seemed to point people toward Gods Word.
I am uncomfortable that Beth seem to sound a bit to much Word Faith lately.
I am also unconfortable that she promts Word faith teachers Betty and James Robinson on her website.
Be that as it may I pray that the Holy Spirit wakes Beth up.
Beths statement in my mind also shows the lies and deception that seems to follow around the Emergent/Contemplative camp. Lies I have personally witnessed through local churches here in Modesto, CA that formulate trying to cover Emergent teaching.
Here is Beth Moore official statement.
I pray that even now Beth will pull her name from this project.

My Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Recently I was interviewed for a program on prayer in which I was asked certain questions without any knowledge of what other participants would say or share. Since its release, I've been baffled by some inquiries into whether or not I am a proponent of approaches to prayer with overtones of Eastern meditation. Not only is my answer no, the thought never even occurred to me. I'm a Southern Baptist, for crying out loud! I'm afraid I have to convey the full extent of my ignorance when I tell you with stark honesty that I wasn't even aware of the controversy. I am not involved in any kind of emergent church movement or any kind of mystical prayer movement. Seeing people come to know Christ Jesus through the study of His Word is the only movement I'm part of. I thought I was simply one of a number of people who were being interviewed about approaches to prayer. I also thought that our different approaches would be part of what made the program interesting. In no way did it ever occur to me that each participant would be seen as part of the same movement.
I was told that I was asked to participate because I'd written Praying God's Word. I'm not sure you'd find anything further from a mystical, almost out-of-body prayer experience I'm being asked if I support. If I have participated in something unsound, it was hugely accidental and I ask your forgiveness. Nothing could be further from my desire. I have shared platforms with other speakers and teachers a number of times. My frustration is that any of us would be at a loss to take responsibility for every point of doctrine the others hold. I humble myself before you and ask that you would please hold me responsible for my words and answers only and, even then, please keep in mind that editors can use bits and pieces of interviews to convey something the interviewee might not have intended to say. Here's what I intended to say: pray, pray, and pray some more and learn how to listen for God's response.
Rest assured I have been greatly helped by this experience and will be more careful in the future. Thank you not only for your concern but for the accountability. I want very much to be a solid servant of God and His Word. I want to keep growing in Christ. In that process, I am more than willing to receive sound correction. I am honored to serve you.
In Christ's Name,
Beth Moore
