This word was new to me. It’s a word that speaks volumes:

“Chrislebrities”

I came across it in a timely article by Jeff Maples at Pulpit & Pen. Go there to read this important and informative post.

Priscilla Shirer: vetting a winsome but wayward teacher

2 Corinthians 10:12

Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

It is a sad irony that Priscilla Shirer opted to name her ministry “Going Beyond,” because this is exactly what she is choosing to do right now. She goes beyond what is written in teaching men, in partnering with false teachers, in teaching unbiblical prayer practices, and in using improper hermeneutics. Therefore, it is my recommendation that women not follow, support, or receive teaching from Priscilla Shirer or Going Beyond Ministries at this time.

Our church is using a book by Priscilla Shirer, Discerning the Voice of God, for our women’s Bible study. This post is a result of my concerns with her taking Scripture out of context, and of understanding that I needed to find out about her. Vetting isn’t pleasant but necessary; if this short post can help others to do this with teachers, I’ll be grateful. 

The following are articles that analyze Priscilla Shirer and her ministry, Going Beyond Ministries, or that mention her as one of many current, popular false teachers of our day, including Beth Moore. (The first article in this list offers numerous additional resources on Priscilla.)
