I have had a couple of inquiries about if and when there would be a follow-up post regarding the Living Proof Live simulcast from September 12, 2015. Since almost two weeks have passed since then, I thought it might be a good idea to give an update here.
After viewing the simulcast, I did decide that I would write a review. There is a lot to cover, and I am being careful in my analysis. It is taking time and my health situation comes into play too, but I do hope to have it ready in a few weeks. Please pray for me as I work towards presenting a fair and thorough review. There are definitely some things worth writing about that I hope to share with you.
I have also been made aware that some blog subscribers are not receiving email notifications of new posts. There are a few reasons this could happen. If you subscribed after September 5, you have not actually missed anything since I have not posted since then. If you subscribed before then, please check your email for an email asking you to confirm your subscription. The updates will not begin until you confirm that you wish to receive them. Lastly, there could be a glitch. I hope it’s not that. I checked with Support and found out that they only send one email confirmation per request to help limit spam on my site. The downside is, if a legitimate subscription request glitches, there is no second chance. The only option at that point is to try another email. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
If you have had this problem and then began receiving emails notifications of new posts, please let me know if you discovered what the problem was. If the problem persists, I will look into another subscription service. Thank you!

Thank you so much for this update. I, too, have been checking your site regularly to see if you’ve posted the review of the last LP simulcast. I wanted to let you know that I received an email notifying me of this update today. :) Thank you!!! Look forward to your review. I, too, suffer a chronic illness [Lupus] so know all too well how day-to-day health issues arise. God bless you with good health and His mercy, grace and peace.
Rose, thank you for letting me know that you received the email notification. I’m glad it’s working! Your health situation is in my prayers. Thank you for your understanding and encouragement.
I’m glad to hear you’re writing a review. It will be a good exercise for us to read it. Over the years, I have found evaluating Beth Moore to be a tricky business. She says some good things, but I can’t reconcile many other things from her. Her extreme popularity (and acceptance from church leadership) has often distracted me. I have increasingly relied on good counsel from places like Fighting for the Faith to make sense of it all. I’m glad you’re adding your voice. We have to test all things, and it’s good for us to see how to do it.
Hi Chris, Yes, she does say some good things. She did during the simulcast too. I will present them as well as some things that I think were off the mark. It can be tricky business looking into certain teachers that are not blatantly unbiblical. To me it is like various shades between black and white. The closer you are to black, the easier it is to see that it is not white. But when a shade is just a little off white, it’s not so obvious. That’s why we need to really pay close attention. I know of no other way to see it, but to look very closely. This takes effort, biblical knowledge, and prayer; but when we desire and love the truth, the work is not too burdensome. Thank you for your comments and support!
Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your reply to my email to you. I did what you suggested and found that I didn’t click the button that confirmed getting updates. So I am now getting your updates. Thanks! Also I really like what you said about the various shades between black and white. That is very true. I also feel the same way and we can’t let it go unnoticed because if we do others that don’t know can get caught up in those inconsistencies. I also heard it put that just like one that studies the authenticity of money. They study the real one very closely so that when a fake one pops up they can see the difference. When others that don’t study the good one wouldn’t see it. We need to study the Word close enough so we notice the bad teaching when presented. There is a difference between right and almost right.
Hi Tami, Great! Thank you for letting me know that you are receiving the updates now. I’m relieved that it wasn’t a glitch. I like the analogy of real verses counterfeit money. Thank you for sharing it. I’m happy you did as it gives another picture of how careful we need to be. It’s similar to the story of the jeweler that I mention in my post “Knowing the Real Thing from the Fake”. Analogies like these have been helpful to me. They’ve helped me see how easy it could be to miss something that wasn’t quite right and drove home how important it was to study the word. I hope they’re helpful to others as well. Thank you again for sharing yours.
