Glenn Beck's Divine Destiny - 8/27

Kennedy Center, Washington, DC, August 27th

Join Glenn Beck for an inspiring look at the role faith played in the founding of America and the role it will play again in its destiny. The audience for the event will be overwhelmingly made up of pastors, ministers and clergy: a modern day Black Robe Regimen. Tickets will be made available to the general public at no cost.

So, if you are sick and tired of hearing about how divided America has become, then join us for an eye-opening evening at the historic Kennedy Center in Washington, DC on Friday, August 27 that will help heal your soul. Guided by uplifting music, nationally-known religious figures from all faiths will unite to deliver messages reminiscent to those given during the struggles of America's earliest days. The event will leave you with a renewed determination to look past the partisan differences and petty problems that fill our airwaves and instead focus our shared values, principles and strong belief that faith can play an essential role in reuniting the country.

I was a meeting at 11:00 so didn’t hear the announcement.

This looks to be a cool event.

A member of the non-Christian, anti-Christian, Mormon cult is becoming the national preacher and religious teacher of the entire media to religious conservatives.

Mormons use the Bible but do not really believe in it, that is why they will dismiss it as the final word in a discussion and instead turn to the Book of Mormon as the true holy book, saying that the Bible is only useful as far as it was correctly interpreted but inadequate when the book of Mormon gives a different message.

Did you miss the part about “All faiths”. He isn’t pushing any religion.

In fact he is pushing the idea that our similarities can and should make us stronger. Why do you continue to focus on the things which divide us?

STOP FOCUSING ON WHAT DIVIDES US AND FOCUS ON WHAT UNITES US!!

For heaven’s sake, I am a sincere believer in God. I am NOT a believer in the concept that one sect of Christianity is more right than any other. I am a Christian, and our beliefs state that we should love one another so stop with the divisiveness!

If only because we have a job to do that will take ALL of us, not just those who only believe exactly what you do.

Are you worried that Beck might actually be stepping up to help save the constitution? Are you so distraught that the concept is part of LDS prophecy that you oppose any Mormon that may be in that category?

Like has been said here, we had better come together to save it, whomever steps up to the plate.

To need to learn to read our posts more carefully.

My concern is Christians being deceived by a front man for an anti-Christian cult.

This cult guy is becoming a national preacher, and I think that most of his audience do not realize that he is not a Christian at all but part of a cult that hides that from the public while trying to win converts.

I thought your post was perfect. I am Jewish and the only change I would make is to say:

For heaven’s sake, I am a sincere believer in God. I am NOT a believer in the concept that one sect of Christianity or Judaism is more right than any other. Either Jew or JChristian, our beliefs state that we should love one another so stop with the divisiveness!

I listen to Glenn Beck everyday and he speaks to belief in G-d not belief in a specific religion!

I read your posts, but as a Mormon myself, I can’t help but think there is more to what you are saying, the apparent fear you have of Beck’s national audience and the work he is doing, dare I say, God’s work. I don’t expect you to agree, but Beck serves a greater purpose than any of our little self elevated postings could ever do.

As I believe that God had a hand in founding this great nation, so do I believe His hand will support it, though His own ways.

Danae, that proves my point, as Beck is using the Bible and Christian language, his audience does not realize that he is not a Christian, Mormonism is actually anti-Christian and seeks it's converts from their ranks.

Mormonism is it's own religion, it is not a Christian religion, that is why they wrote their own Holy book, that is their true religious book, not the Bible.

Yes of course, you yourself are a Mormon, and your sole mission here at FR since you signed up 10 months ago seems to be promoting Mormonism.

Sad thing is...it took Beck to do this...This should have been done by a real Judeo-Christian. Naturally a mormon will be ecumenical...since he will try to gain more acceptance in to mainstream christianity.

Glenn said the other day on his TV show that he was a Christian. Everything I have heard him say since coming to Fox, would lead me to believe that he was a Christian. I can't say that I have disagreed with anything of the spiritual nature that he has said. This may be by design so as to not alienate his audience. In other words, to speak about things most Christians can agree on. I have heard Glenn say all the things that the thief on the cross said to Jesus and he was saved.

Luke 23:43 Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Ponder, if you will, Romans 14. I find it PROFOUND. It's not just about food. Food is one of the metaphors. Also he talks about various ways to worship God. (denominations anyone?) In verse 1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. Disputable matters are those things that separate denominations or even religions.
Verse 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.”

Our Master is Jesus. He will decide who stands.

How can that be when mormoinbs claim there was no faith in the world from 100 AD until Joey Smith “restored” it in 1830 ???

Will beck be explaining the mormon doctrines about the abomination of the Christian churches ???

All of the founding Fathers were christians or Diests...

Not one mormon amongst them...

according to the mormoinbs all of them were “apostates” (infidels) “Gentiles” etc who didnt follow “the lord”

None of them were mormons until they were dead dunked into mormonism YEARS AFTER THEY DIED...

There it is, Glenn Beck left Christianity, joined the non-Christian Mormon cult, suddenly got his big break and is now becoming America's "Christian" radio preacher by convincing people like you and millions of others that he and his religion are Christian.

There is a reason that Mormons have to be baptised as Christians when they convert to Christianity.

Q: I read recently that the Catholic Church had rejected Mormon baptism, since their view of Christ and the Trinity is so unusual. But I have to ask: Are Mormons considered separated brothers and sisters? While their views are strange to say the least, they are still separated, and we should reach out to them. If we view them as something other than separated, doesn't that exclude ecumenism? I know that many view them as a cult, but aren't cult members separated as well?

A: The reason Mormons are not considered separated brethren is not because they aren't "separated" from the Church-they are-but they aren't "brethren" in the sense required. The phrase separated brethren refers to those who, though separated from full communion with the Catholic Church, have been justified through baptism and are thus brethren in Christ. The Decree on Ecumenism (Unitatis Redintegratio) of Vatican II teaches that "all who have been justified by faith in baptism are members of Christ's body, and have a right to be called Christian, and so are correctly accepted as brothers by the children of the Catholic Church."

Because Mormonism is polytheistic and rejects the Trinity, Mormon baptism is not valid, and Mormons are not considered separated brethren. For the same reason, outreach to them, while certainly a good thing, is not ecumenism, though it can include dialogue and social cooperation as well as efforts to evangelize them.

“There are currently on the order of 30,000 Christian faith groups in the world. Many regard themseves as being the only true descendents from “The Way” as the early Christian movement was originally called. Unfortunately, many present-day denominations have wildly differing understandings of the early history of Christianity. “

Something that the various Christian denominations agree on whether they are Roman Catholic, or Greek Orthodox, or various Protestant denominations, is that Mormonism is not a Christian religion.

See post 21 for example.

There are also many distinct definitions of the term “Christian.” Four examples are:

Most liberal Christian denominations, secularists, public opinion pollsters, and this web site define “Christian” very broadly as any person or group who sincerely believes themselves to be Christian. This would include, fundamentalist and other evangelical Protestants, Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox believers, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, United Church members, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Scientists. Using this definition, Christians total about 75% of the North American adult population.

However, many Fundamentalist and other Evangelical Protestants define “Christian” more narrowly to include only those persons who have been “born again” regardless of their denomination. That is, they have repented of their sin and trusted Jesus as Lord and Savior. About 35% of the North American adult population identify themselves in this way.

Some Protestant Christian denominations, para-church groups, and individuals have assembled their own lists of cardinal Christian doctrines. Many would regard anyone who denies even one of their cardinal doctrines to be a non-Christian. Unfortunately, there is a wide diversity of belief concerning which historical Christian beliefs should be included in the list.
Other denominations regard their own members to be the only true Christians in the world. Some are quite small, numbering only a few thousand followers.

Different definitions on such a fundamental topic makes dialog and debate among Christian groups very difficult. It also makes estimating the number of Christians in the U.S. quite impossible. By some definitions, 75% of Americans are Christians; by other definitions, it is a small fraction of 1%.

We define "Christian" as follows: We accept as Christian any individual or group who devoutly, thoughtfully, seriously, and prayerfully regards themselves to be Christian. That is, they honestly believe that they follow Yeshua of Nazareth's (a.k.a. Jesus Christ's) teachings as they understand them to be.

Included as Christians are members of the Roman Catholic church; the Eastern Orthodox churches, conservative, mainline, and liberal Christian faith groups; The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the Mormons); Jehovah's Witnesses, Unification Church, Christian Science, and a thousand or so other religious organizations that identify themselves as Christian.

We also consider the early Jewish Christian movement led by James the brother of Jesus and Peter as Christian, even though their beliefs, practices, and expectations do not match modern-day denominations. Also included are those who consider themselves to be Christian even though they do not identify themselves with any particular religious group.

You can post all the fluff that you want, but I am speaking to the Christians here at freerepublic that belong to a diverse collection of Christian denominations, and I am telling them that their church teaches that Mormonism is not a Christian religion, and that if they look into their own churches position, they will verify that.

You are a member of the Mormon religion yourself aren’t you?

Actually, I confused you for a second with another Mormon Proselytizer, you may not be Mormon.

I notice that you are plagiarizing an internet article from an anti-Christian web site and passing off the words as your own writing.

That seems pretty cheesy, cutting and pasting a lame article from anti-Christians and playing like you are writing it.

Not a darn post read between the lines.

He as hinting who will be their! Didn't anyone get it?

My guesses?

Billy Graham and the Pope.....

I have heard from Christian friends that Dr. Graham wants to do one more major speech. Glenn has hinted that Rome has said he is doing good work.

Remember this post on the 27th and 28th to see if I nailed it, just like when I started following this Alaskan Female Politican who was as cute as a button that no one ever heard of...

He isn’t pushing Mormonism. Thats ridiculous. How is he pushing anything by including pastors from all the different sects of Christianity? Either he is pushing his own beliefs or he is including all of them with out prejudice. Its pretty clear he is giving them ALL the platform, not just one, not just his own.

You see, somethings at a little different than religion and trying to get converts. This isn’t about getting converts. Its about ALL CHRISTIANS regardless of sect, coming together to preserve our fundamental FREEDOM to even HAVE different sects of Christianity.

You are missing Becks point. Try to look at it from a different perspective. I am not saying yours is wrong, I am trying to say that Beck is not coming from the point of view you claim he is.

Beck is LIGITIMIZING and MAINSTREAMING Mormonism, he is convincing people like you that it is just one of their own Christian denominations and he is mainstreaming the anti-Christian cult.

Mormonism is on a public relations campaign currently to capitalize on Beck and Mitt Romney’s high profiles.

Would you want your mother or son to leave Christianity and join the Mormons?

First, that would be up to them not me. I don’t have the fundamental arrogance to assume I know what is better for them than they do in this. My brother is also a flaming liberal and one of the most closed minded people you have ever met. I don’t try to change that about him either. That would take me having the opinion that I know whats better for him than he does. That isn’t my cross to bear.

Second, I have NEVER heard Beck pushing Mormonism. Not once. In fact, I hear him going out of his way to include all branches of Christianity. Not just his own. He talks about faith and having it. He never states any opinion on what branch of faith to follow. He tells people to make that decision for themselves.

Now, you appear more concerned about his faith and what branch it is, than you do about the message he is actually trying to give.

Try focusing on that message for a few moments on its OWN merits and forget the messenger. See if it makes sense to you then.

If not, then hate the man till the cows come home, he has done more than any personality in recent memory to espouse faith and American values. I give credit where credit it due.

Most Christians would fight tooth and nail to stop a loved one from leaving Christianity and becoming a different religion.

Beck has already made his religion legitimate enough for you, that is the goal, to convince as many Christians as possible to accept Mormonism as just another Christian denomination.

Beck’s religion isn’t any more “legitimate” to me than yours is.

That is between you and G-d.

It is also between Beck and G-d.

I am not arrogant enough to assert that I have any justifiable reason to judge either of you, or your religions. I am not qualified.

Are you catching my drift here?

Before you even ask, I believe in the one and only G-d. The G-d who sent his only son to die on the cross. What denomination I am is irrelevant. Jesus himself said raise no churches to me. That is part of why I see the discussion about what “sect” of the “church” is right or wrong. Jesus himself didn’t want us warring between ourselves over any perceived differences which may come about.

He preached the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Thats good enough for me.

I assume that you belong to one of the Christian denominations, Beck doesn’t. Mormonism is not a Christian religion, that is why the Christian churches have to Baptise Mormons into Christianity when they convert.

If you don’t belong to one of these denominations then tell which one and I will try to find what they have to say about Mormonism being Christian.

I am not a member of any denomination. I read the bible, I look for historic texts like the Book of Enoch and others. I look and read history and archeological finds. I am not a member of a church. I disagree fundamentally with the belief that I must be a member of a church to follow and know the word of G-d.

My relationship is with HIM. Not a church.

That’s nice but to get back to the subject, do your studies about Mormonism being Christian agree with what the Catholics claim in post 21 or do your studies disagree?

I read your posts, but as a Mormon myself, I can’t help but think there is more to what you are saying, the apparent fear you have of Beck’s national audience and the work he is doing, dare I say, God’s work.

Sorry, covert proslytizing for mormonism is not God's work. Glenn should stick to the political "work" and leave the missionary work to those who are open about it.

I guess you could change the lyrics of "Praise to the Man" around a little. It truly is a mormon trait to attempt to gift men with "holiness".

Beck is a very frail vessel for the kind of power you attribute to him.

it took Beck to do this...This should have been done by a real Judeo-Christian

It was ...long ago...

By Rush, in Colorado, May, 1993...

It was called “Dan’s Bake Sale”

CNN etc all there...

80,000 Christians/Conservatives turned up and more were stuck on I-25 which was one big parking lot for hours...

Lots of Christian T-Shirts...

Rush arrived by helicopter...

The National Anthem and God Bless America was sung by a 14 yo home schooler ...

Huge success...

I was there ...were you ???

You two are pretty funny, or are at least trying to be. I said nothing of the sort. Beck isn’t a prophet, but he is certainly doing God’s work. Frankly, I don’t care if you agree. Thomas Jefferson shares my opinion.

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God?”

- Thomas Jefferson, 1781

Yes, it’s God’s work. Sorry to disappoint you both.

I'm am amazed at how many ways you mormonISM apologists can play the misdirection card! The issue is the ISM yet you find so many ways to conflate the people and the ISM, leaving readers to believe opposition to mormonism is hatred toward individuals. And when you ask, "Who gets to choose who is Christian?" you already know that a Christian will answer 'only God knows the heart of the individual'.

Mormonism is not Christianity. The founder of Mormonism claimed that Christianity needed to be restored after a nearly two thousand years hiatus. That is like saying--in your conflation method--all Catholic individuals prior to the arrival of Joseph Smith were dead in their tresspasses and sins and Mormonism dead-dunking must be used to give these poor souls a chance to have salvation! Now, let's get back to the topic at hand ...

What Beck is urging is ONLY that each individual get back to a realtionship with his or her creator, in the fashion he or she finds works for this relationship to work for that individual. Glenn Beck has a vision--not some mystical thing, a notion if you will--that if American individuals and families will seek God's comforting, guidance, and wisdom, through whatever religion they choose, the principles of America's foundations will be renewed.

Glenn Beck is naive, but he is sincere. The majority of Catholic practicing democrats have been able to maintain a duplicitous state where the issue of abortion--for instance--is prominent, and still vote for the deadest enemies of the Republic, the democrat party!

I sincerely pray that Glenn's notion can awaken American exceptionalism and fan the flames of patriotism which can expel the criminal bastards infecting Washington, DC. But I have grave doubts that the media will allow such to occur and that Glenn Beck's most fragile characteristics will be exploited to sour spiritual awakening.

Much more likely venue for awakening Americans is the tea parties. BUT, striving for a spiritual awakening in America is not a bad thing, regardless of Beck's current schtick in Mormonism.
