It’s a good thing when Glenn Beck blows the whistle on government excesses that the “mainstream” media cover-up instead of covering. But it’s unwise for followers of Christ to promote a mormon teacher because some of his politics are amenable. (Incidentally, on one of the most important political issues for Christians–the nation’s view of Israel–mormons are on the wrong side.)
But Beck certainly understands one truth–that religion is more important than politics. And you could not find a religion more at odds with the cross of Christ than the one to which Beck is devoted heart and soul. His religion is the stated foundation of his political philosophy, and the foundation of his life. Let us not be complicit in helping him preach his message and promote a religion that will lead souls astray for infinitely longer than the next election cycle.
Beck repeatedly in his writing and speaking gives a false testimony of mormonism delivering him from sin and depravity, something that cannot happen outside of Christ. Salvation is not found in any other, for no other name is given under heaven by which men must be saved. In the mormon religion, the cross of Christ “really didn’t mean anything,” as one mormon missionary put it when answering the question of why mormons don’t talk about Christ dying for our sins.
This is not true faith. It is a very dangerous belief system. Don’t be impressed by how devoted to the Republican party its adherents may be. The GOP didn’t die on the cross for you, and neither did the United States of America or the writers of its constitution.
Live for eternity, brothers, not for November.
And remember that light and darkness have no fellowship with one another.
