This is a tough note to write since I have been a Glenn Beck admirer since he started on Fox. I have been an outspoken Conservative since the late 1950s and I see him expose the same Progressives we fought way back then. However now, in light of many thing he does and says, I must say I believe Beck is doing serious harm to unsuspecting Bible Believing Christians. While Beck’s serious and accurate expose’ of Obama, Progressivism, Leftist Czars, George Soros, Cloward-Piven, etc, is right on target, he inexorably promotes himself as some sort of a Conservative Biblical religious leader. Unbelievably, he is cheered on and supported by Southern Baptist leader Richard Land and former Christian Pastor and historian David Barton. Beck abhors the concept of “Social Justice” yet he promotes two of the foremost radical Social Justice icons, Leftist ML King and noted anti-Christian Mahatma Gandhi.
His statements about his Salvation and Atonement sound close to Truth but he belies that fact by other statements which parallel his stated membership in the Mormon religion. Mormon’s policy is to twist the precious meanings of many Biblical words such as Salvation and The Atonement. Some of Beck’s defenders say that he is really a Christian but is only posing as a Mormon to get their support. Examining him closely we see Beck trying to appear half in Christianity and then other times half out. Listen carefully and discerningly, you will see him as totally OUT. He can’t be “in” Christianity some times and “out” another. Either he is a Biblical believer in Jesus Christ as his Savior or he is not. By his words and actions, he seems to prove he is not a Bible Believing Christian.
Mormon Statement of Faith: From Mormon web site
We believe the Book of Mormon to be The Word of God.
We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
We believe that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent;
Any student of God’s Word, the Bible knows these statements are untrue. God’s Word totally rejects
the Mormon teaching.. and vice versa.
A Blog friend Suze has an interesting observation on Beck. Go here and read it: Glenn Beck Points to World Religion. 12/4/2010 Quoting her, she says:
Once again, Glenn Beck acts like the Mormon Pastor of the nation. […] (and then Suze discusses Beck and Bonhoffer)
She continues: At any rate, after the book promotion, he [Beck] had on a pastor in which he said they disagreed about many things but should “unite” under basic values. Once again, Beck is guiding the people to a one world religion, saying all Christians need to unite, despite doctrinal differences. He did not say that Bonhoeffer was for ecumenism and yet his whole show screamed of this theme. He draws viewers in by manipulating their emotions and then at the end of show closes with new-age philosophy. If this isn’t brainwashing and propaganda, then I don’t know what is.
Suze’s Blog has a commenter who gave two links that are quite shocking and revealing about Beck. Visit them:
