Skip to comments.‘Your God Is My God’: Beck Delivers Speech Before Jewish Politicians, Knesset
Posted on 07/11/2011 11:45:12 AM PDT by lbryce
Glenn Beck was given a unique opportunity on Monday while visiting Israel: he delivered a rousing speech before the Jewish version of congress, called the Knesset.
Where you go, I shall go, Your people is my people, your God is my God, Beck said, quoting the book of Ruth while addressing the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee.
As a man who also worships the one God, in the times that we live in, it is clear that what is going on is Gods work. If we are silent, evil will win. But if we stand up and take charge, God will do the rest, he added, according to the Jerusalem Post.
He also encouraged members to reach out to those of other faiths:
If you go to a synagogue, reach out to a church. If you go to a church, reach out to a JCC. Say, will you watch this with me? After that well talk and eat and get to know one another.

Jesus Christ was God in the form of man.
Thanks for the words fish hawk. Maybe if these same small minded people would engage strangers they meet about the Good News of Christ as wholeheartedly as the Mormons do about their religion, Mormonism would have died out a long time ago. When the only people knocking on non-Christians doors are kind, good looking, nicely dressed Mormons, what should we expect?
Mormons dont deserve our hatred, they deserve our apology for being lazy Christians that did not reach out to them first. Now they are in a position that it is hard to.
Your opinion. One could as easily say that you are not a Christian if you are not a Catholic.
Is it Christian to be small-minded?
For the record, I am not a mormon; I don’t subscribe to any denomination because denominations are a contrivance of men and each denomination subscribes to their interpretation of the meaning of God’s word. As long as your belief system does not impinge on other people’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (and islam does advocate that line of evil) you are free to practice as you please and to believe that a mormon is not a Christian. I have the equal right to say that you are being small-minded.
Thankfully, the Constitution allows all of us to believe and practice as we see fit, or to not believe in God at all.
>>Remember it was Christians who sent Jews to the gas chambers.<<
These “Christians” made no distinction between, Jews, Christians and those of other religious persuasion.
The Nazis were only sympathetic toward Islam — they saw their own image in Muslims.
There is however, significant evidence they were aligned with Muslim radicals in the Mideast and that Canaris may have been involved in the formation of the Muslim Brotherhood
As I said, I thank God for Christians, including Graybeard58.
“Remember it was Christians who sent Jews to the gas chambers. Trust me, Israel hasnt forgotten.”
Nazism wasn’t Christian.
It was Odin-worshipping occultism.
Thanks for your contribution, and for announcing your stupendous idiocy to the forum.
Good question.. of anybody.. you only have your experience..
Beck's experience is his experience..
But the politics of it all may have some impact..
Beck has exposed some pretty gutsy stuff recently..
I give him some room to be wrong or imaginative on some issues..
Most religions are Cargo Cults anyway.. maybe all of them..
They seem to be similar with different cargos...
God may be separated from religion, all of them..
Be nice if that were so.. a generic God.. What a concept!.
Government and Religion both enforce morality..
Two sides of the same coin, probably...
Both seem to suck at it..
Good question. Either A) He is expressing Mormon superiority- That claims that Mormons are the true Jews and the Israeli Jews are actually gentiles or B) He is totally ignorant of Moromon theology and the meaning of these verses in Ruth. Either one is bad.
My idiocy? You actually believe the Pope can forgive sins? Who here is the idiot?
Like I stated earlier I was missinformed on that one point.
The Nazis hated the Catholic Church, and especially hated and feared the Pope. For political reasons, Hitler refrained from destroying the Church during the war. He promised that after the war he would crush the Church like a toad.
I refer all to my last post,and thank each of you for the enlightenment.
You are misinformed. The Church did help the Jews -- and probably more than the rest of the world combined. She sheltered them, fed them, helped them obtain documents so they could escape. She lodged protests, both public and private, in the defense of Jews. The Catholic Church is the only reason that hundreds of thousands of European Jews survived.
You have been deceived by a stupid, evil myth. Educate yourself.
Thanks again for the info.I am at this very moment doing as much.However I can’t seem to find in Holy Scripture where the Pope or any man can forgive sin.If you have any additional information on this one point please let me know.
Only if you believe leftist history.
The Nazis were anti-Christian occultists. Christianity was all but dead in Germany in 1932 when the Nazis came to power.
Just becaue a person was baptized as an infant does not make them a Christian.
