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.

Run as fast as you can away from the deluded Beck.
I would tend to agree. However, the United States could never have been founded without Christians and Christianity, so we should thank God for their influence.
[ Run as fast as you can away from the deluded Beck. ]
“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. “
I’m sure Beck is sincere - but he is wrong. The Mormon conception of God is a different being from the God described by the Bible.
Beck is not a Christian.
He is a Mormon.
(Glenn) Beck’s Bogus Beliefs
“And my planet is your planet”
Jesus Christ was God in the form of man.
“The God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob is an eternal Being and never was a man.”
Help me be clear on what you said here.Are you saying Christ Jesus is not God?
Beck is connecting with them very well, and Im very happy to see that. Wish I could be with him there in August.
As far as the My God is your God, its sad to see Bigots leaving all sorts of inflammatory comments on the Blaze about his Mormonism, and Im sure as I am typing this, others are posting some of those on this thread.
You heard it said hate the sin not the sinner. Can reasonable Christians not do the same about people caught up in Mormonism? Mormons I know are good people and make great neighbors, and thank God they vote the Right way. We can have more effective evangelism by reaching out to those needing to hear the true Gospel rather than slapping them down.
Becks visit to Israel is Not an LDS mission trip. He is simply acting as an Ambassador for Americans who support Israel. With that, God Speed Glenn Beck.
Israel isn’t Christian either, they are mostly agnostic.
I lived there for 3 months and I can tell you Israeli politics are far more complicated than in the USA.
Remember it was “Christians” who sent Jews to the gas chambers. Trust me, Israel hasn’t forgotten.
The TRUE and LIVING God of Israel is NOT the “god” of Mormonism. As much as I respect Glenn’s stand for Israel. Mr. Beck is WRONG and he is spiritually deceived by the CULT of Mormonism.
I beg to differ with you, Glenn.
Your god was once just a man til he got to some planet named Kolob, and part and parcel of the confidence scheme of the false prophet, (and convicted felon), Joseph Smith
MY God is the God of Abraham and Isaac, and the Father of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
NAZI's were not Christians nor were the Muslims that helped too.
Mr. Beck, as much as I admire him, couldn’t be further from the truth: There is no God in Mormonism . . . only pseudogods by the hundreds of thousands . . . Either Beck has bought into the fallacy of Mormonism, or Beck is lying . . . I hope it’s the former.
So Beck has a designer God...
Is your designer God better?...
Most of this planet has designer Gods..
Since no one has ever seen or known the real God..
Who’s to say which one is best..
If your God is better.. gloating is allowed.. BUT graded..
Spit it out.... does your God have a logo?..
I Prefer not to “limit” the Good Lord as to his methods. In the Old Testament G*D used a Jackass(there maybe hope for EVEN you) and a Harlot to accomplish his good work. SO I EVEN think that he can use a mormon.
Beck is converting to Judaism? That is what that verse in Ruth means.
Since he is not converting, that is a highly offensive statement that Beck made.
Amen, In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, the same was in the beginning with God. All things were created by Him and without Him was not an anything made that was made. ... And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us....
Never was...Never is...Never will be.
I am a Christian. I was contrasting Becks god and the God of the Jews. I didn't say it right and what I wrote is not what I meant to write. My fault all the way. My God did take the form of a man in Jesus Christ.
Mormonism teaches that God The Father Almighty was once a man and earned the attributes of godhood, then was appointed to be the gosd over this planet. According to the founder of the religion called Mormonism, Joseph Smith, that god then had sex with Mary and produced a body for the spirit child jesus whose brother happened to be Satan.

I have asked the mod to remove my comment, it wasn’t what I meant at all. I meant that God the Father was not a created Being and of course I believe that God the Son came here as a man. I just messed up big time and hope the mod removes it. My apologies to all.
They can share the credit somewhat but they received their values and westernized because of the Hebrews. 2/3rds of their book including the moral code (commands) they live by came from the Hebrews. Its great you want to share but lets not go overboard.
How do you know?
If God wants to be revealed to someone, is your permission needed?
Is the permission of any religion needed?
I find it fascinating that, instead of being grateful that one's personal religion enables one to find a way to reach out to God, that the common attitude is to decide that that limited, personal understanding is the only way God may be reached for anyone - all while declaring God infinite.
But infinite... means infinite.
We live in God's universe - God doesn't live in ours.
God does what God does.
WE play catch-up.
No worries,I thought perhaps you had misspoke.Thanks for correcting
I’m sure you meant this for me but in Poland and Germany, many of the people who sent Jews to the gas chambers were Christians. You’ve never met a Christian who was a bad person?
BTW, I’m not Jewish or Mormon. I’m evangelical raised Catholic but study church history. In Europe, jewish hatred is much more common than in the USA. Back in wwII it was VERY common.
Of course it wasn’t all Christians doing it. Stalin and the radical pro-Germany agnostic Nazi’s did most of damage to the Jewish people.
I really wonder if Glenn realizes to whom Ruth said that and why. I wonder, too, if he realizes what will transpire for lying to God’s chosen people?
When those airplanes flew into those twin towers, it woke Glenn up, along with a myriad of others who, up until then were happy watching Two and a half Men on TV. In a round about way, there is some good that came out of all that chaos and destruction. Just as the passing of Obamacare has rousted millions of Americans awake as to the direction the Democrats and this sick president is taking our county. So, there is even some good there, that being an awakening and the beginning of the Tea Party etc. (in my humble opinion)Bottom line: even feces can be used as fertilizer.
Nazis are not Christians. It was the God fearing Christians that defeated the Nazis. True christians in German were killed by the Nazis just like anyone else who would not yeild to Hilter.
Adolf Hitler believed Jesus was the offspring of a Roman Centurion and a Jewish prostitute. That sound Catholic to you?
The Waffen SS had no chapalins [except for a couple of units that defied Himmler’s order], and every effort was made to convert SS recruits from a religious sect to “God Believer”. Himmler was a neo-pagan crank.
Heydrich planned to infiltrate seminaries after the war, and destroy the Church from within. Hitler was so p*ssed when the Catholic Bishops roused public opposition to the T4 program, causing him to cancel it, that he determined to settle up with the Catholic Church after the war.
The National Socialists were many things. Aligned with the Catholics was not one of them.
One of the little niggling things that bothers me on occasion about Glenn's stand is his disconnect with his own chosen religion. He rightly has spent a great deal of time pointing out that the founders of this nation were believers in God, were Christians, and perhaps inspired by God in the founding of this nation. Yet Mormonism teaches that a total apostasy existed in the world until Joseph Smith came along and 're-established' christianity as Joseph interpreted it. Puzzling stuff that.
>>The Mormon conception of God is a different being from the God described by the Bible.<<
Beck is a convert to Mormonism — he still thinks in terms of his former belief in the Christian God.
Ooops, need to slow down. Spell that man’s name ‘Dietrich Bonhoeffer’ ... Fraulein Brautigum would slap me for that mistake!
I must have been missinformed.But it still begs to question why the Church leadership did nothing to help the Jews.And how is it that the Pope thinks he can forgive sins,when scripture is plain that only God can forgive sins.
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..
