Beth Moore Quotes on Life: 10 Memorable Statements from the Evangelical Christian

By    |   Saturday, 09 May 2015 05:18 AM

Life is about living and learning, not just shutting yourself up in the church, according to evangelical Christian Beth Moore. Here are 10 memorable statements she’s made:

SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. On her Living Proof Ministries blog, Moore wrote about life: “I’ve woefully regretted things I’ve said and some things I’ve taught. All of us are on a learning curve in this culture entrusted to our care.”

2. On “enemies,” as written in her blog: “And I’ve got an enemy…I don’t know about human ones, but I’m confident that The Enemy is always on the hunt. It is part of being a believer. It’s part of my life in ministry.”

3. In a rare Q&A with a reporter from the Houston Chronicle, on the occasion of her book, “So Long, Insecurity: You've Been A Bad Friend To Us,” Moore offered her take on what it means to “get a life”:

“Pray the thing out. I believe in God-given dignity. Also, part of the answer is to get a life. God has called us to do some good and live outside our self-absorption. Lift up your chin, look around and see what God has called you to do. I believe everyone has a God-given calling. That's what (my husband and I) taught our daughters, to look up and look around and do some good.”

4. After a series of questions about women and insecurity, the Chronicle reporter asked her what a sense of security would be. She said, “It's a sense of sustained, God-given dignity and value.”

5. Moore devoted a blog post to having moved from a suburb to the Texas Hill Country three years previously, and developing a new attitude to the life around her: “Something about eating eggs from a chicken I know personally doesn’t sit well on my stomach.”

6. Moore also wrote in her blog, “I used to hate possums because of their pointy little teeth and the way they hiss but somehow, now that we live out here, I feel like I can’t hate them as much. I feel compelled to be a good possum steward.”

7. She said elsewhere in her blog about humans’ uniqueness in the ability to remember – for good and for ill: “But today, I’m thinking to myself that all the torturous memories I’ve stacked up like past-due library books on the bedside table of five decades are worth the capacity to recall moments that make life on this earth worth the trouble.”

8. In her book, " Esther: It's Tough Being a Woman," Moore wrote: “You cannot amputate your history from your destiny, because that is redemption.”

9. In an interview with Christianity Today, Moore said, “I have to have a daily, vibrant relationship with Jesus in order to survive that process toward healing.'

10. On keeping vague about the details of being abused as a child, Moore said in Christianity Today: “I try as hard as I know how to keep my reader relating on a broad level so I don't lead her someplace where she thinks that's the only thing that could cause insecurity. I also owe my family some safety and my extended family some safety, so I am careful to stay vague.”
