Beth Moore Ends Relationship With Southern Baptists, Drops Lifeway as Publisher

Renowned Bible teacher and longtime Southern Baptist author and speaker Beth Moore has made a staggering decision public: On March 5, she told Religion News Service in an interview that she is "no longer a Southern Baptist."

"I am still a Baptist, but I can no longer identify with Southern Baptists," Moore said. "I love so many Southern Baptist people, so many Southern Baptist churches, but I don't identify with some of the things in our heritage that haven't remained in the past." She also told RNS that she has ended her long-term relationship with Lifeway Christian, which will continue distributing her books but will no longer publish them or administer her live events.

It also comes after his abrupt two-week hiatus in the middle of a YouTube series he titled "I Was Wrong."

Noem's response comes after the bill passed the state Senate in a 20-15 vote.
