Bibles For Beck

Recently the blog Jesus Needs New PR  ran a post about Glen Beck talking about Black Liberation Theology. Beck used snippets of Dr James Cone’ talking about Black Liberation Theology. To watch the Beck segment and read the comments follow this link to the post.

Union Theological President Serene Jones has posted a letter to Glen Beck inviting him to attend advanced theological classes. She is also sending Beck a care package of Bibles and some concordances to help him in his studies. You can read the letter here

While I am not a fan of either side in this case, I do feel that Beck would do well to actually read the Bibles. I have little faith in Beck’s interpretation of the Bible. Like so many people, He tries to speak into the Bible rather than letting the Bible speak into his views.  This is a common problem. The real threat from Beck is that he is a Mormon, hardly a representative of Orthodox Christianity.

My hopes of a true discussion/debate will probably never come to fruition. Serious discussion doesn’t fit into cable TV’s formula for success. Not to mention a serious debate would require some real research on Beck’s part, not fancy editing.of other people’s statements.

The students at Union have made a video inviting Beck to the Seminary:

  1. Americans need to wake up the fact that Beck is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology. He does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, he has no qualifications and he is definitely not a true conservative. But then, what can anyone expect from someone who can’t find anything filthier than their own personal reflection. Since people like Beck cannot exist on the basis of any personal merits, they survive by puting others down with lies and half truths in order to feel good about themselves. The truth about Beck is that he a dry mormon alcoholic
    who never got the counseling required by alcoholics. He flippantly throws around Christian terms like “God”, “Jesus”, “Holy Spirit” as well as voices of other so called “Spirit Powers” on his radio talk
    show. Beck is a mormon in active standing with the mormon church and is not a Christian. Mormonism teaches many gods, that the god of the earth was once a man who attained godhood status, there is no
    trinity, the cross of Christ means nothing and that Jesus Christ and Satan were brothers. Because Beck does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, he is the perfect abortion poster child for
    Fox Network. The people who love what Beck says are no different than the impressionable sheep who loved every speech made by Adolph Hitler in his early years when he brought Germany into an era of economic prosperity. These same sheep (like the ones who listen to and believe the lies of Beck) also blindly followed Hitler into one of the darkest chapters of world history. Beck and the Fox Network both cater to the same lowest common denominator of demagogery. The man would not know the first thing about God as he is a mormon. Someone should ask him which of the many mormon gods he kept talking about during his argument with himself on Saturday. Unfortunately, these teabaggers out there do not realize that Beck is talking about a different god than that of Christianity, Judaism or Islam and that he has been a product of mormonism cultism from the day he started doing a radio talk show as an opinion pusher.
