It's been over five weeks since Joe Biden won the 2020 election, and President Donald Trump has yet to concede to the 77-year-old politician and admit defeat.

While many prominent politicians and leaders have been calling for Trump to finally concede, one conservative religious leader, Beth Moore, has had enough of Trump and his followers who cite Christianity as a means of supporting the businessman-turned-politician. 

In a scathing thread posted to Twitter on Dec. 13, Moore bluntly laid out the reasons why she's never been a Trump supporter, and why Christians need to "move back" from their unwaivering support for the President. 

Who is Beth Moore?

Beth Moore is more than just a Christian speaker, she is a woman who found God as a way to overcome the obstacles in her life, and she's not afraid to speak out against Trump, those who support him, and "Trumpism."

She's never been a Trump supporter.

She became popular in the early 1990s, but came under scrutiny by other Christian Evangelical leaders when she voiced her concerns over the election of Donald Trump.

Beth Moore's rise to Christian stardom fell when she become outspoken against Donald Trump and his presidential campaign using Twitter, and she continues to be under scrutiny to this day.

Having been abused as a child, she did not understand how the religious right could excuse his prior offenses toward women.

She's also the mother of two children who go to seminary school, and she's used her understanding of the Bible to rebuke the American Christian church, using her platform and in exchange she lost many of her supporters.

These are the traits about Beth Moore that make her unique as a Christian female leader.

Her transparency and willingness to stand for what she feels is right in the face of what everyone else felt needed to be done was noble.

Beth Moore took to Twitter on Dec. 13 to slam Trump and his supporters.

In a scathing Twitter thread, Moore slammed Trump and his followers, as well as religious leaders who still support Trump and his rhetoric about fraudulent voting.

"I do not believe these are days for mincing words. I’m 63 1/2 years old & I have never seen anything in these United States of America I found more astonishingly seductive & dangerous to the saints of God than Trumpism. This Christian nationalism is not of God. Move back from it," she started the Twitter thread.

"Fellow leaders, we will be held responsible for remaining passive in this day of seduction to save our own skin while the saints we’ve been entrusted to serve are being seduced, manipulated, USED and stirred up into a lather of zeal devoid of the Holy Spirit for political gain," she continued.

She ended her Twitter thread by saying, "And, God help us, we don’t turn from Trumpism to Bidenism. We do not worship flesh and blood. We do not place our faith in mortals. We are the church of the living God. We can’t sanctify idolatry by labeling a leader our Cyrus. We need no Cyrus. We have a king. His name is Jesus."

The Twitter thread garnered over 130,000 likes, but was met with mixed reactions.

"You... really should not worry about us turning to “Bidenism.” One of the huge reasons a lot of us voted for him was because we’d like to go 2-3 weeks at a time without having to even think about The President," one Twitter user wrote.

Pastor Greg Locke, however, didn't see eye-to-eye with Moore's analysis of Trumpism.

"Ma’am, you’ve honest to God lost your mind," he wrote. "This trashy rhetoric is why America is in the place that she is. You say 'move away'. I rebuke you in the name of Christ. You are NO friend to babies, Israel, religious Liberty or the nuclear family. SIT DOWN."
