I was listening to the Glenn Beck program while at the gym yesterday. I find the conservative politics mixed with Latter Day cultism disguised as Christian moralism mingling with a zionistic Judeo-fetish pumps my blood all the faster, and probably burns a few extra calories. After getting his favorite Rabbi’s take on a Satanist group’s insane Planned Parenthood anti-protest protest and talking about how much he believes in the Shemitah and The Harbinger by “Jonathan Cone” (his pronunciation) I noticed my heart rate go from about 103 to 174 on the elliptical’s monitor. Sure, it might have been the exercise, but I like to think Glenn Beck has a little something to do with it.
And then, came this little gem…
The context was Beck’s raising of two million dollars to help Christian Syrians escape ISIS. It’s a fine cause, indeed. Getting you name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, it does not.
I might remind you of the good many evangelical Christians who have had Beck preach to their congregations or institutions, from Ed Young’s Fellowship Church to Liberty University, introducing and billing him as a fellow believer.
The LDS believe in a works-righteous non-Gospel. Not only are the peripheral beliefs surrounding Mormonism clearly a different religion (from Jesus being the product of a sexual union to God having been a man and men becoming gods – and it gets even stranger), but Mormonism holds a self-righteous, works-righteous, meritorious nugget at the center of its religion where the Gospel should be.
Glenn Beck’s Mormonism – and every other religion under the sun, which have different names but share the same central doctrine – is a religion of do. Christianity is a religion of done.
Look alive, out there. There’s a lion roaming around, seeking whom he may devour.
