Skip to comments.Praying for Glenn Beck (Washington Post- Christians Are Scary)
Posted on 09/19/2009 12:12:12 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Fox Newsevangelist Glenn Beck might be the most prayed for man in America at the moment -- which could be good news for all of us.
A few weeks ago, Beck urged his conservative Christian followers to pray for his protection. "There is (billionaire George) Soros money now being funneled to stop me. The biggest names, the most powerful people on the planet on the left -- I've told you before, they're not going to go away easy . . . Please, keep me in your prayers, keep my staff in your prayers, for safety, for wisdom, please."
Meanwhile, over on the left, Jim Wallis is asking his fellow progressive Christians to pray for Beck. "It should be no surprise that we strongly disagree with many of Glenn's views, but we too believe in a God far greater than all of us. So on this point, let's take Glenn at his word and pray for him to have wisdom as he speaks out on these issues. Tell Glenn you're praying for him - that he'll choose hope over fear."
So maybe neither of those prayer requests are purely nonpartisan. But it does show that Red State Christians and Blue State Christians at least can pray for the same person, if not for the same reasons. That's progress, right? The culture war-weary among us appreciate any sign of progress among the faithful, especially after reading the new 2009 Religious Activists Survey, which shows just how deeply and fundamentally divided religious activists are in this country.
Here are just a few of the lowlights in the survey of 3,000 conservative and progressive religious activists.

“Fox Newsevangelist Glenn Beck”
Are they implying that Beck injects fundamentalist religious views into his news analysis? Is his view of the news is analogous to fundamentalism? Or do they simply mean the word “evangelist” in the sense of “enthusiastic”. If so, I think it’s both misleading and prejudicial.
I still can’t figure out why so many homosexuals fear God and Christians.
I’ve got news for the Washington Post, to some people, saying “pray for me” does not amount to all that much. Not to say Beck wasn’t serious, but it’s a common thing to say. I know calling God down from on high to help seems rather extreme to atheists and agnostics, but to believers, it’s a way to say “wish me good luck” or “keep me in your thoughts”.
The MSM loves to slap Christians because they don’t hit back. It’s the flip side of the same reason they suck up to Jihadi’s-they will hit back. As with everything liberals believe, it’s all dictated by biological drives and emotional reactions; fear, hunger, sex, guilt, comfort, etc.
He has awakened us from decades of letting Government abuse seduce Americans with promises to help them while pocketing special interests dollars and throwing citizens under the political bus. Beck has given us a voice and we're using it; the elitist in Washington and across this nation are in a panic, not being use to anyone talking back they are stunned and in disarray. As Beck says, the paradigm is about to change. Bring it on Washington.......we're ready and plan to leave many of you jobless in the near future and some even might do some jail time.
And for good reason. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the original intent of the Founding Fathers.
The angels of the Lord are many and mighty...And I pity those who speak lies and do harm to this messenger.
Isn’t Beck Mormon anyway?
I thought Evangelical Christians and Mormons were two different things.
This is akin to “they all look alike anyway”
The left has a 3 step program for dealing with opponents:
1. IGNORE. That hasn’t worked.
2. DISCREDIT. They’d love nothing more than to disclose that Glenn was running male prostitutes out of his home and...
Sorry. That was BAWNEY FWANK!
The left killed THIS man to stop him. Prayers for Glenn are certainly in order at this time.
Funny, I thought Glenn Beck was a Mormon.
I just hope that Beck has a real good security team. I really think he will be a target before this is over.
Beck has to be extremely carefull. I believe that the left will stop at nothing to discredit him.....It’s only a matter of time before they release video of him saying something off the air. I wouldn’t put it passed them to break into his home and plant bugs and cameras. They are that desperate.
And to choose the truth over a lie.
Psalm 119:163 I hate and abhor lying, but thy law do I love.
Pray that Mr. Beck remains fearless in reporting the truth -- since the other networks seem to be awfully shy...
We’re all the same to them.
What’s wrong with asking people to pray for you? They have to try to make something of that? Associate him with those ‘crazy Christians’. Yup. Another tactic. The God card.
David Waters, editor of the Washington Post/Newsweek “On Faith” blog. Waters urged reporters “not to go” to established leaders like Robertson and Dobson, contrasting them to “real people” in the pews.

“I thought Evangelical Christians and Mormons were two different things.”
I believe the term “evangelist” refers to the writers of the Gospels, so yes, you’d think that would exclude Mormons, who have a New New Testament to follow, and as such don’t care as much about Matthew, etc. But I’m content to stick with the common definition of “evangelist” as fundamentalist and/or proselytizers. In the case of Mormons, they would be sticking to the fundamentals of the Book of Mormon, rather than the Gospels.
The God card.
I like that.

Please don’t make this thread into something no one intended. It was not posted to debate Mormonism. Let’s not go there.
