How Can Glenn Beck Be Right on So Much and Yet Still Believe the book of Mormon? (serious question)

Posted on 10/26/2009 7:51:02 AM PDT by Scythian

I'm a huge Beck fan, in fact I'm listening right now here

http://www.ksfa860.com/common/gap_streamer.php

but something really confuses me. It takes the ability to use real critical thinking to know what Beck (and most of us know about the state of the country and where we are heading). That is, we have the ability to discover the truth no matter how much the media or conventional wisdom try to hide it. Yet on Mormonism, Beck is cleary wrong. Any Christian knows that the book or momonism is severely flawed and that Joseph Smith was no prophet. How can Beck cut through all the chaff of what is going on in our world and come to the truth and yet believe the writings of Joseph Smith? It doesn't make sense? I'm not saying he's up to something secret, not by any means, it's just that he's so right about so many things and completely wrong on the most important thing. Now, he just said on the air that he believes Jesus is the Savior of the world and that he is Mormon.

I also think that because he is Mormon he is not attacked near as much if he was a Evangelical Bible only believer. Anyway, am I nutz or does Beck being a Mormon seem bizarre?

Where some in the LDS are going, well let us just say I am glad that I will not be allowed to enter, hope that I am not allowed to enter or even offered entry, much less endure any time there...

Of course such will not be issue for me since I have both the Holy Spirit AND the intelligent rational mind that God gave his children so that I can both Spiritually AND logically see the truth of his word and his world.

You should not concern yourself as you continue your “natural man attitude” you could not endure let alone allowed to enter!

Oh......have to be REALLY "speshul" to enter, just like the mormon temple.

Did they have masons on Kolob to steal the special tokens from too?

I love how resty keeps letting all the lurkers know about the arcane beliefs of mormonism by telling us that we aren't "worthy" like she is!

Would you really want to “endure” such boredom ???

No time to play golf or watch a game on TV ???

No time to go hunting or shoot a few hoops with one of your umpteen million sons ???

“Hey Dad, want to shoot a few ???”

“No. son cant”

I’ll teach you how to slam dunk”

“No, son, It’s tempting but cant.”

“Aw, Dad. You never have time for me”

Gee what a sad planet for little kids.

So much for “families forever”

Then why do you and the other mormons get your knickers in a knot when the plain truth and words are posted?

If you’re so interested in “speaking plainly”, then there shouldn’t be anymore caucus or ecumenical threads. They should all be town square so that “speaking plainly” can occur at all times.

The fact that many choose to hide behind the protection of ecumenical or caucus threads proves that they aren’t interested in “speaking plainly”.

How refreshing that would be.

To: All; Jim Robinson

I love my Faith and it pains me to see such bigotry against Mormons.

I find it interesting that the critics of my Faith don’t want to dwell one topic to discuss the truth of falsehood, but choose to spam topics all over the place. I would be happy to debate and discuss things in a civil manner, but this crew on Freerepublic are not interested in that. I think in part they know if they acted civilized that they may look bad and their critiques will look hollow. I think they are afraid of any critical analysis.

Jim, why do you tolerate this in the News/Activism forum? Is this right? I can understand having this in the Religion forum but not here? Please reconsider.

And lastly, I pray to God that he will be the one to open the eyes of his Children to the truth. It is in his hands and I trust him completely. Although, I may have to suffer intolerance and harasment; I pray that I may be like Isaiah and that I may be like flint to their criticisms.

I hear what you're saying; but they fall on deaf ears because the LDS Organization; based in Salt Lake City; STILL publishes this crap every year!!!

http://scriptures.lds.org/en/js_h/1/17#17

  17 It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!
  18 My object in going to inquire of the Lord was to know which of all the sects was right, that I might know which to join. No sooner, therefore, did I get possession of myself, so as to be able to speak, than I asked the Personages who stood above me in the light, which of all the sects was right (for at this time it had never entered into my heart that all were wrong)—and which I should join.
  19 I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.”
  20 He again forbade me to join with any of them; and many other things did he say unto me, which I cannot write at this time. When I came to myself again, I found myself lying on my back, looking up into heaven. When the light had departed, I had no strength; but soon recovering in some degree, I went home. And as I leaned up to the fireplace, mother inquired what the matter was. I replied, “Never mind, all is well—I am well enough off.” I then said to my mother,
“I have learned for myself that Presbyterianism is not true.”
 
Then perhaps you're  the one who can shed light on what was UNTRUE about PRESBYTERIANism that JS learned; right?

Keep at it Elsie. Your spam tactics only strengthen my point. Do you see a Mormon spamming that other Faiths are wrong? Some are reacting defensively, yes, but the truth is they are not. Have it and may God bless you and wish that you may find peace with Mormons or the other 6 billion people on the planet who believe differently than you.

I don’t see the issue. I believe my Faith is correct and others are misguided in some respects. Whether, the misguidance is small or large, that is up to God not me.

But you spam doesn’t lessen or enhance the truth. It is just you spamming and that is it.

Go here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2371071/posts?page=714#714

Pick any of the three topics, dwell on it please.

You make the challenge so lets see something different from the LDS this time.

Topics are not “spammed”, but dogma directly from LDS SOURCES over a number of areas are posted because the LDS themselves cannot answer them in an honest straight forward manner (for obvious reason, but that is another matter.)

The fact that LDS folks cannot answer their own contradictions is not “bigotry” it's just fact.

Of course victim hood is one of the leading products of LDS Inc....

Here is a chance to break the cycle.

Three topics, any one of which you can take on...

Oh, because I say so is not an answer to any question.

Odd, how frightening to mormons who have this huge worldwide missionary program that a few threads on FR are when according to Ezra Taft Benson, former LDS prophet,

Our main task is to declare the gospel and do it effectively.

LDS.org

Not to mention that your "correct" church's missionary program defies the law to do its "spamming".

LDS missionaries: Undocumented immigrants walk fine line when spreading their faith

This whining to Jim by mormons wanting to shut down rebuttal to their proselytizing on FR has been going on for more than two years that I can remember.

For example...

Give it a rest.

...which reiterates the charge that "they are all wrong; they teach for doctrines the commandments of men".

That’s what I was saying, DON’T post on Religious forums so you CAN “speak plainly”.

But, that is just it, you don’t want the others to be able to “speak plainly” about mormonism so you hide behind the protections offered by the forums.

Others post in Town Square, why not mormons?

Joe Smith trashed Presbyterians and their faith, is he a radical?

It is just you spamming and that is it. Odd, how frightening to mormons who have this huge worldwide missionary program that a few threads on FR are...

The bottom line, nowandlater, is that all Mormons "delegate" their spamming to missionaries and Lds pen-pushers (Pearl of Great Price translators, curricula, Ensign mag, etc.)...
...courtesy of your tithes to have Mormom minion missionaries do that for y'all...
...the typical Lds philosophy behind what we hear is: "Speak softly and carry a big Pearl of Great Price stick")

Definition of a 'big Pearl of Great Price stick':
"You Christian sects are 100% wrong;
"Your churches are 100% unjoinable;
100% apostates;
100% creedally putrid;
100% corrupt as either believers -- or, well at least your leaders /teachers /writers/ administrators/evangelists/missionaries
...Signed: Cordially, your "nice" Mormon neighbor
P.S. "Of course, we'll be polite & use Lds missionary doorstep language like 'universal apostasy' instead of pointing our fingers right @ you..."
"...and we'll fund the outer darkness out of hundreds of different Pearl of Great Price translations which mention ALL of the above as supposedly 'representative' of what our god thinks of you...so our 'big stick' will seem once-removed..."
"...But make no mistake about it, we've sent out literally over 1 million Lds missionaries who've carried this 'Big Stick' around the world!!!"

"R.I.P. Christian -- in that big spiritual graveyard Joseph Smith dug for you"

Is dodgeball a major component of mormonism? Because you do a lot of it. How about building strawmen? Because that is what your reply is. I wasn’t asking, nor was I referring to other faiths except Presbyterianism.

Is Joe Smith a radical? A simple Y or N will suffice.

And I would remind you that you were the one who posited the statement about radicals.

Are mormons the only crybabies who can't even defend their own religion on an anonymous forum?

I have been earnest from the beginning, but continual “disappointment” has done nothing but reinforce my initial skepticism that any in the LDS fully understand exactly what their dogma truly entails, at least among those in the faith who themselves are earnest.

I suspect there are also those who know it's short comings and maintain a defense for their own self interest. Their explanations are the most ‘interesting’.

Even the simplest of questions are met with elaborate rhetorical slight of hand by the pros or practiced rote answers by the rank and file that leave very incomplete pictures and gaping holes of logic and fact that is totally unrecognized or thought about. hence my retort the "because i said so" (or because that is what we are told) is not an answer. Indeed I doubt "yes" and "no" is in the lexicon of either group.

Perhaps you can surprise me.

You would be the first.

Do you find it kind of interesting that the cabal keeps on bringing up the 60,000 missionaries? It's almost like they're trying to squelch the word from getting out, stifle free speech, make it so that only their word gets out.

Sound familiar? What's Obama been trying to do w/ FOX? As I stated earlier, they use the same play-book & it makes me wonder. Conservatives should be about getting a divergence of ideas & opinions out there. These missionaries simply knock on doors & ask to share. They don't knock doors down & they don't force anyone to do anything. They share a belief. Even though the cabal doesn't share that belief, as conservatives based in the Constitution, one would think they would welcome the freedom of expression.

I guess only until it contradicts their beliefs. Sounds kind of liberal to me. :)

“Do you see a Mormon spamming that other Faiths are wrong?” It is interesting that even most Mormons do not realize Smithism/Mormonism was founded on that very assertion, that all were worng, that the authority from God had departed the earth with the last Apostle and only through Joseph Smith, could it be restored. So yes, Mormonism is the most eggregious offender in what you are seeking to defelct.

Just out of curiosity, how many post do you see LDS making here sand blasting other churches? That's spamming! Voicing an opinion occasionally on the truthfulness, in the normal course of conversation, as a Protestant would do w/ a Catholic, is not.

The cabal is on here virtually every single day, w/ hundreds of posts, sand blasting. Some might call that spamming. Others might call it a more “liberal” form of speech. :)

As I stated earlier, they use the same play-book & it makes me wonder.

What? "...the word from getting out" = the world-wide slander lds missionaries have been pouring out upon Christians like pollution being dumped from pipes into streams & waterways? I've never said 100% of Lds creeds & articles of faith are an "abomination" -- putrid. Yet, that's the most basic unwritten Lds "article of faith." Why? Because if this little Mormon made-up "factoid" was not so, then Smith's instant-presto appearance as "apostle & prophet" of all the earth is unnecessary.

Not only is this "scripture" that binds your (& every other TBM) very adherence, but your very existence as a Mormon depends upon the total "failure-hood" of Jesus Christ and His Church established in circa 30 A.D. It's our supposed "apostate-hood" that props up your very existence!

How utterly and "noble-lessly" sad! It's like saying, "We Mormons can't construct our neighborhood in any other than the Christian graveyard down the street. Otherwise, if we let them pop up, resurrection-like, out of the gigantic grave Smith dug for them, we become false prophets in proclaiming we're the ONLY church in town!"

Even your Book of Mormon theology confirms this. 1 Nephi 14:9-10 proclaims there's ONLY 2 churches in town. Mormons stake their claim on one of them -- the church of the Lamb. You know outer-darkness well that it leaves only one label Mormons pin upon the rest of us: "The church of the devil."

Lds dance around this 'cause they don't even like the implications of their own "scriptures." They like to see themselves as "victims" of persecution & oppression. Yet they oppress any other church from being the true church of Jesus Christ. They oppress all other creeds as being an "abomination."

Shame and double shame. (When will we see a Mormon expound upon this passage with complete openness?)

Conservatives should be about getting a divergence of ideas & opinions out there.

Where's the "divergence of" creedal ideas allowed by Mormons? You claim 100% of ours are false, fictitious, abominable, putrid.

These missionaries simply knock on doors & ask to share.

And what you do you think WE do with these posts? What? Do every time we share a thread or post, the doorbell rings on your computer -- and you're forced to stop what you're doing & go lurk or answer? (We impose less than any doorbell)

Maybe it's his way of being independent, not Christian, not Atheist.

You are free to have your opinions about Mormons, but just because Mormons will disagree with you on matters of Faith doesn’t mean we are giving evasive answers or there are gaping wholes in logic. I certainly do not.

However, remember, Faith is Faith. It is not Law or science. There are 6 billion people on the planet, and I doubt that there are two people who agree a 100% in matters of Faith.

In addition, I feel it is Mormons with years of real life experience, who are studious, earnest, and intellectually curious who understand the issues of Mormonism (real or imagined) the best. Certainly not the critics whose sole source of intellectual curiosity is to cut and paste from another website. It’s very comical to behold.

Your arguments resemble more of the Pharisees of old as they battled the Lord & His new doctrine, than they do someone comfortable in their own skin & religion. They got mad at Him as well because He said their creeds/teachings (to use the vernacular) were an abomination. They were quite offended, just as you are. Interesting.

As far as Making folks read your threads, most don’t anymore except when you hi-jack other’s which is becoming more & more frequent, kind of like kicking the door in. Interesting as well.

I have a lot of fun in store for this weekend. By best to you as you undoubtedly continue your “work” here. I really can’t imagine anyone interpreting the scriptures to say that one should be angry & hostile as you & the cabal seem to be on a daily basis. There’s a lot of happiness to be had outside of your “work” here. Go find it. You’ll be blessed for doing so. Even if it doesn’t involve the Mormons or their beliefs.

It is fine the way it is there are other faiths also being trashed on the RF.

That's because they were NOT started by a charlaten!

Show me know if you are sincere about it and we will go from there.

So THAT's why the Great Pumpkin fails to appear!

Do you find it kind of interesting that the cabal keeps on bringing up the 60,000 missionaries?

Do you find it kind of interesting that the MORG keeps on playing down the 60,000 missionaries?

Just out of curiosity, how many post do you see LDS making here sand blasting other churches? That's spamming!

And just WHAT do YOU call the STATUES in the center of Temple Square® proclaiming that ALL the creeds are WRONG?

Sincere attempts at conversion?

You are free to have your opinions about Mormons...

Just as YOU are 'free' to continue to ignore the FACTS of MORMONism that are being posted.
