Glenn Beck – Patriot and… False Prophet

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:

    A Blog friend, Suze has just posted more information on Beck and his Mormon religion by T.A. McMahon at The Berean Call. It is quite an eye opening indictment. Please check it out:

  2. Bruce,

    Thanks for the link.. it will be helpful to those seeking the truth.

    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  3. Hi Jack:

    An excellent Christian resource site for Christians and others to view DVDs and other resources which expose the fallacies of LDS teachings is “Living Hope Minstries” (link below).

  4. Thanks Scotty,

    Very well researched and I couldn’t have explained the error of Mormonism any better.
    And Karen, I pray you will consider what Scotty has written and trust Jesus Christ ALONE as your ONLY Savior !!!.
    Please visit, read and believe the info on this page:

  5. A few quick points about Mormonism, Karen. It would take volumes to point out all the disparity that Momron doctrine has with Scripture (The Bible). I would strongly suggest that you visit this website.

    It is a site run by x-mormons and it will show you where Christianity and Mormonism parts ways.

    We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

    Mormon doctrine cannot be validated using Scripture(the Bible), hence the Book of Mormon, Doctrines and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price.

    as far as it is translated correctly

    by whom is it translated and how? Unless you are a Mormon Karen, those words should trouble you greatly.

    we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

    How do we validate that the Book of Mormon is the word of God? The Bible is vary easily validated, how do we prove that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, because Mormons say so?

    Do you know Joseph Smith’s history? How he and his family dabbled in the occult? He was the only one to ever see those plates that Mormonism is based on. Do you know how he read them? He put them in a hat and put a crystal to his head to “interpret” those plates. Crystal gazing a common practice in the occult.

    To say that Mormons believe that same things that Christians do is a bit disingenuous. While that may say the right words, use the same catch phrases used in Christianity most times they mean something very different to a Mormon.

    Mormons are polytheist. They believe in many Gods. They believe that God was once man and they believe that they, when doing the right things, that they too will be Gods, just as God is now.

    Unfortunately, many Mormons as do many Christians don’t know they’re own church doctrine.

  6. The bible itself tells us that Jesus is the word of God. If we put anything next to Jesus, the word of God, such as the book of Mormon, this is great error as Peter put Moses and Elijah next to Jesus (the word of God) as of equal importance on the Mt. of transfiguration. This is a similiar error by placing anything as equally important as the word of God (Jesus). It is there in the bible. Not my opinion, but truth.

  7. I don’t want to make this a religious discussion, but I feel like I have to say something here. Mormons, or more accurately the LDS Church, worships the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They believe he is the promised Messiah who came 2000 years ago, atoned for our sins, died for us, and most importantly was resurrected. Please watch This shows the church leaders testamonies of Jesus being the Christ.

    From “the Mormon website” or only bits and pieces of church doctrine were taken for this article. “We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.” If our loving Father in Heaven spoke to his children in one part of the world, why not also in others? Would he leave them to wander and live their lives in darkness? No. Both books complement each other to enrich the lives of those who read and live by the principles taught in them. Believing in the Book of Mormon in no way belittles the truth of the Bible, and only works to extol Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

  8. Scott,
    We don’t see Mormons as “scary and evil” but for the most part patriotic and lovers of America.. But we do see you as unaware of the True and Gracious salvation offered by our Savior, Jesus Christ.
    I pray you would consider Jesus to be your eternal Savior — the Biblical Savior.
    Please read:
    You will not regret understanding and believing the God’s True Word.
    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  9. BOO! This scary message brought to you by an evil scary Mormon!

    This is a ridiculous and sad blog…

  10. Scotty, you are exactly right.
    If he had just stuck to the Conservative message, exposing Progressivism, he would be less dangerous.

    Thanks for your great comment.

    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  11. Gramma, thanks for your comment.. You are right — that Christians may not have reached out to him.. but the Bible says that the Grace of God that brings Salvation has appeared to ALL men.. including Beck. He is responsible and he has rejected the Truth. Those “religious” pastors with whom he associates should be ashamed for not pressing him to trust Christ as his Savior. They are guilty (if they even know the Gospel). Pray for Beck’s salvation.

    In Jesus Christ eternally, Jack

  12. Some of Beck’s defenders say that he is really a Christian but is only posing as a Mormon to get their support.

    Wow!! I hadn’t seen THAT comment!!

    Beck has made me queasy for many years because of his Mormonism. I’ve been concerned also knowing how the Mormon double speak works, many would think that they are mainstream not knowing that it is a cult.

    I’ve heard him mention often that he speaks with the church leadership. I’m sure they had a hand in his call to 40 days program he’s been touting. He’s a great evangelist for the Mormon church and I’m concerned just how close we as Christians should stand with him. I have no doubt that he’s causing many look at Mormonism as an option that wouldn’t have before.

    I don’t listen to him very often anymore and I stopped watching his TV program because I think he’s gone a bit to far over the edge. His telling many to stock up on food and have plans ready for the hard times is a bunker mentality which is pure Mormonism doctrine, because they have no clue as to what the last times are and what it’s going to entail.

    As much as us conservatives agree with a lot of what he has to say, I think that we as Christians should back away from Beck. We certainly can’t allow politics become idol. I don’t think we should have a hand in blurring the the line between Christianity and Mormonism. As Beck calls me to pray with him, I’m sorry, I have to back away from him and say, we aren’t praying to the same God!

  13. You are spot on Jack. I truly admire Glenn for what he is doing and his desire to save our nation. I do however, recognize the fact that his doctrine is twisted and his belief that he is Saved is based on a false doctrine. My prayer for him is that, in his lifetime, someone takes the time to explain to him the true Good News. I do worry that there are people who will not listen to what he has to say concerning the state of our nation solely based on the fact that he is a Mormon. His love for our Country is sincere. My thought on his converting to Momonism is because when he was a falling down drunk, they were the ones who reached out to him and offered him the hand up. Sad if this is a true scenario and there were Christians who passed him by and did not help him. On them will be the pain of his lost soul.
