Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals
BREITBART ^ | March 23, 2016 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Posted on 03/23/2016 4:44:46 PM PDT by McGruff

Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, is rebuking talk radio host Glenn Beck for his recent criticism of evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% ’s campaign to secure the Republican Presidential nomination.

“All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday.

“Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News.

“However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting that the true God of the Bible is different than the god of the Book of Mormon. I congratulate Beck for his honesty in differentiating between the two,” Jeffress adds.

And he went on the question why the Cruz Tithe on $5 million was only $44,000.

Oh that’s right, Cruz and his fans are all about weaponizing the IRS.

I was a regular listener and admirer of Glen Beck for years, even attended his Washington DC 8/28 event.

He started losing me when he went after people who know what natural born citizen means, ridiculing them mercilessly, to defend The Usurper.

The failure to prevent Obama from an office he was not eligible for has many fathers, none of whom revere the Constitution.

Beck has gone completely off the rails recently.

What does that have to do with Beck?
The topic of the thread?

>>How many here would like to see Glenn Beck with
>>a key to the backdoor of the White House?

I wouldn’t give Glenn “The Cry Baby” Beck a key to the trapdoor of the Out House.

Affiliation with his charade is one of the reasons the Tea party canoe took on water so fast.

But - once the creature gets attached, how’s Cruz supposed to detach it?

Salt Lake.. Salt Vampire. You notice how we never see Beck together with them in the same place?

The 12,000 Baptists in Jeffress’ one church outnumber all the Baptists in Utah,

where (Hispanic) Catholics are the distant 2nd largest denomination and 60% of the people are Mormon.

What say you pastor Cruz?

“Say what you want, but as a Southern Christian, I’m pretty sure my God doesn’t like politicians behaving like diamond pinky ring wearing TV preachers telling lies and trying to guilt people into donating their dollars to false causes”.

And putting people on "Blacklists".

As unpleasant a task as it may be, I think we need to identify the traitors and remember their names. We do this not out of spite, but in keeping with the Bible’s many warnings about false prophets. Scripture urges us to “expose the unfruitful works of darkness”

The hypocrisy of Matt Walsh. He'll condemn others of being a "False Prophet" all the while his buddy Cruz kicks it with Glenn "stabby" Beck.

Shouldn’t First Baptist Church of Dallas lose its tax exempt status when the senior pastor is out campaigning for Trump? The IRS should enforce its rules about political activity for churches. (And the members of that church should question why their spiritual leader endorses a foul-mouthed thrice-married man of low character.)

Your comment is a good example why Cruz is toxic for Evangelicals and beholden to Mormons for his political survival.

If that law were followed, there wouldn’t be one black church in existence, since that’s one of the primary venues for Democrats to campaign. But that isn’t even pertinent in this instance.

I’ve heard Dr./Rev. Jeffress speak about politics, most recently with Cavuto, and he was extra careful about his verbiage as to a technical endorsement of a candidate. He chose his words so carefully that Cavuto was laughing at him.

The first time I heard him speak he was praising what Trump had said about Muslims; he wasn’t endorsing Trump as a candidate.

Most often, he’s speaking against issues as in this instance. Here, he’s criticizing Beck by pointing out the fact that a Mormon god isn’t “God” as evangelicals and Catholics believe in God. And it’s left up to us Christians to use our powers of logic to make the connection between Beck and smarmy, swarthy, creepy, feckless Lyin’ Ted of low character.

Pro Gay marriage Beck is a Giant hypocrite

Glenn Beck the left libertarian called anyone opposed to Gay marriage “Hetero-fascist”

So Mr Beck what Cruz?..pro Gay Marriage or are you Mr Beck supporting a “Hetero-fascist”???.

either way you’re a hypocrite for trying to call out evangelicals for not being in your camp for Cruz...

Beck is not your enemy. He is a patriot.

He is claiming Cruz is a savior according to Mormon prophecy. I don't think of him as a patriot, rather as a professional conservative making millions off the misery of the country while he sells his apostasized religion, Mormonism.
