Don't get me wrong, I love Glenn Beck, he's a heck of a nice guy. But there is much confusion here that needs to be addressed with regards to his Mormon faith.
- What if any other known Mormon walked up to your door and started telling you about their love for Jesus?
- What if any other self-confessed Mormon told you about their ‘conversion’ to Jesus?
- What if any other Mormon started professing their love for family, conservative points of view and their “Christian” world-view?
At the very least you’d be suspect. And the first thing you’d have to ask is this: Which Jesus do you love, the Mormon Jesus or the Jesus that is the Son of the Living God, and not the brother of Satin? Glenn Beck has not revealed this that I know of. I have watched several interviews and dozens of programs and videos. The definition of Jesus is conspicuously missing from all of them.
Have we forgotten that Mormonism exists because God told Joseph Smith the founder of the Mormon religion that, “…all their creeds were an abomination in His sight: that those professors were all corrupt..." (Joseph Smith, History of the Church, vol. 1, p. 5-6). Mormonism exists because it proclaims itself that orthodox Christianity is false. The initial goal of Joseph Smith and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was to purposely set itself apart from accepted orthodox Christianity. In other words, Mormonism purposely separated itself from orthodox Christianity, not the other way around. Now however, because the world has been made wise to their doctrine, the Mormon church is doing all it can to make everyone believe that they ARE a Christian church in direct opposition to their own tenets and founding beliefs. I wish they’d make up their minds, because it is confusing a lot of people, including apparently Glenn Beck.
So his bosom burns, so what. Take a Tums® – but don’t call yourself a Mormon and go on TV and radio trying to convince the Christian population in America that Mormonism is the same as historical orthodox Christianity. Because it is not! It is wrong to do so, and it is deceiving people towards Hell – The REAL Hell. As far as I know, Mr. Beck has yet to explain or define Jesus, and I’m not ready to assume that he’s on the right track. Would you assume that from any other Cult member? If he really is, why does he continue to promote his Mormonism over a belief in Orthodox Christianity?
More simply, do you honestly think he’s never investigated this?? The differences between orthodox Christian churches and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? To do so would conclude that he does not know that there are differences, and clearly this cannot be true. Thinking that Glenn Beck is not aware that his church’s doctrinal teaching is that 'Jesus' is a created being and the brother to Satan - after more than 10 years of regular attendance at a Mormon Church, is the same as saying Barak Obama was unaware that the Reverend Jeremiah Wright was a Marxist bigot and hater of America!
If you are a true born-again believer in the real Jesus Christ with a Salvational understanding of Jesus and the gospel, why would continue to attend a Cult? PLEASE - do not tell me it is for the reason of proselytizing. Paul did not become a member of a polytheistic cult in order to reach the people he was preaching to. Jesus did not have to become a prostitute to teach a prostitute that it was wrong and to bring her to true repentance and conversion. This logic is exposed as false in the case with Glenn Beck. He has no need to stay within the Mormon Church to covert those people to true Christianity, because he already believes that they are true Christians! That’s the point he tries to make every day on his radio and TV shows. This message seems to be elf defeating and should be seen as such by all those real Christians who believe that Glenn Beck he is a born-again believer.
1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
This discussion is approaching everywhere. Many people are talking about it. The Mormons love it. Conservative Christians cringe at the thought. Those in the middle, and those who are seeking a new or renewed relationship with Jesus are confused. Christianity is not confusing. It is lovingly simple.
Glenn I love you, but you are causing a nation full of confusion. And before we can be brothers, just answer one question for me:
