I saw some of Beck's speech. Beck is a little over the top at times on TV and radio, but was better at this event. I consider him kind of like a Thomas Paine or a Samuel Adams. In other words, the type of person that can ignite a movement (hopefully for good), but not necessarily the type that you want as a stable leadership type for your country. So, I have no problem with him trying to motivate others, but wouldn't vote for him as president or other important office.

I don't hear anything hateful from Beck, but he is very strong for conservative-libertarian type beliefs. I tend to the libertarian view, so I would naturally not have much problem with what he usually says.

Elder: I did not say you mentioned atheists...I was referring back to my original thoughts about spirituality and economics.

Today's culture is definitely off course from living Godly lives.

Trish
---Trish9863 on 9/21/10


Trish, I didn't say anything about atheists. Yet, to be correct, spiritually is not based on culture. If it is the Pigmys that eat human flesh in rituals are correct in doing so because it is their culture.
Our culture has taught young people, and some not so young, that is is OK for women to wear skirts above their thighs and men to wear their pants below their buttocks.
Officals in their privicy can commit crimes or interfer with law enforcement. We murder babies and baby murders. It is apparent that we have lost sight of many true spiritual things.
---Elder on 9/21/10


Christians sitting through...
1. The "black robed regiment" of goats and wolves (an insult to the originals). 2. Pastor Jehle's lisping Gods'. 3. Mr. Beck's mentioning Moses, Jesus, the Lord, and pointing out Laus Deo / Praise God, inscribed on an obelisk a symbol of the Egyptian false sun god, Exodus 10:21-23. And he serves a non existent polytheistic god, and a false savior - brother of Lucifer. 4. He also said that "you can not coexist with evil". 5. And then, Sarah Palin spoke of the "one true God of Justice". Isaiah 8:12-13, Ezekiel 16, Mark 8:38, 1Corinthians 6:17, 2Corinthians 6:14-18, Ephesians 4:1-6, 5:11-17, Revelations 2:20-23, 3:15.

Have we really come so far as to think the Bible does not teach economics? Jesus preached a lot about money and economics.
It is not sin to make an honest profit on our products. Whoever may think so is wrong.
---Elder on 9/19/10

Well this was written well Elder. One can look at the blessings we have received in this country and find every one of them in scripture. They were given a promises...we fulfilled them nicely. There are also curses....and we may fulfill those nicely as well.
Tolerating or supporting weak,abominable leaders like we have n Congress,Senate and the presidensee. May very well be our economic/spiritual screen that "tares" some out.

Luke 16:10-12 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true [riches]? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
Matthew 25:22-23 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant, thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord
economics?...stewardship?...
---micha9344 on 9/19/10


Elder: Jesus did teach economics, and the Bible does give guidelines on economics, mostly personal economics. However, it would be difficult to say that economics teaches about God. If someone claims to prefer one economic policy over another, that does not mean they are an atheist, or more righteous than someone with a different economic leaning. That was my point.
---Trish9863 on 9/19/10


Have we really come so far as to think the Bible does not teach economics? Jesus preached a lot about money and economics. Joseph was trained in the pit of capture about this subject. He became famous for his wisdom from God on the subject. We may not see the word "economics" but we do see the principle. It is not sin to make an honest profit on our products. Whoever may think so is wrong.
---Elder on 9/19/10


Trish, you're right, economics have no impact on spirituality, economics are the reflection of society's spirituality! Economics did not do anything to promote God because they are not founded in or look to the spiritual things from God, thus is the result to one end and one end only,- Profit.
God Bless.

\\You learned about Bellamy from Beck, plus Hitler loved his dog, so what? Socialism is still a danger to freedom.\\

Try again, Elder.

I knew about Bellamy, his politics, and how he wrote the Pledge of Allegiance YEARS before I had ever heard of Glenn Beck.

And, as I said about Beck previously, I can tolerate him in small doses, widely separated.
---Cluny on 9/13/10




Shira: You missed the point altogether. Economics has nothing to do with the spirituality of a community. Spiritual matters have to do with culture, not economics. Economics has to do with the flow of goods and services throughout a community, in most cases money, but in some cultures other goods in exchange for goods or services.
---Trish9863 on 9/13/10


trish, you won't ever hear anything about the Holy Sprit or Jesus Christ in college, not even in some "christian" colleges.
---shira3877 on 9/13/10


Elder: I learned about Bellamy a long time ago, way before Beck was even on my radar.

As for Socialism vs. our economic system promoting God: What has our economic system done to promote God in the past 234 years? And, how would an economic system threaten a person's spiritual life? When I was studying economics in college, there was no mention of spiritual matters at all. We discussed economics.
---Trish9863 on 9/12/10


To All Here:
Have you notice that the blog on this topic clearly reflects the state of our union, or shall I say disunion!
May we be all reminded of the Lord's warning of house divided before it falls.

"Whatever he, Nancy Pelosi, and the late Ted Kennedy may be (or have been) spiritually, atheist is not among the alternatives. Rev. Francis Bellamy, who wrote the Pledge of Allegiance, was a Baptist minister--and a Socialist."
Cluny
I never said K & P were. They do/did promote atheistic attitudes. They are not atheist neither are they Biblical Christians. You learned about Bellamy from Beck, plus Hitler loved his dog, so what? Socialism is still a danger to freedom.
Trish, do you think the government of the U.K. and France promote The Holy God's standards and attitude? Show me one thing any socialism promotes for God.
---Elder on 9/12/10


Elder: The kind of socialism that exists in the U.K. and France is not atheistic.

\\Trish, would you please tell me what brand of communism, or socialism is not atheistic? A simple look at Nancy and dead Ted would reveal the socialist agenda. It is collective. Is the government supposed to take care of everyone?\\

The grand North American natives (Indians) were doing just fine until the Big Liberal Government plans took place. You know, "We are gonna give you poor people......" The "Trail of Tears" is not just a holiday.
Fear is not a bad thing. Beck is not anti-Obama, neither am I. We both are pro-God and America. So, it could appear we are anti-Obama.
There is no fear when things are godly. Id like to see Obama become the best President we have ever had. He wont because of his other agendas.
---Elder on 9/12/10


Elder: Extreme liberalism would be communism, or athistic socialism. Teddy's policies never pushed for either of those. I don't see Nancy's heading in either of those directions either.

I have never spoken out against either Wright or Graham, as those blogs I do not engage in.

I have watched Beck saying certain things would happen, based on his chalk-talks, and the things he was "prophesying" were scare tactics to get people against the Obama Democrats.
---Trish9863 on 9/11/10


Trish maybe I've missed something. Your statement, "Elder: I find extremism on either side of the aisle to be scary, as it sees only evil in the opposing side," is what I'm speaking of. I have never seen you speak against "both" sides. What "extreme" you have seen in Nancy P, ol' Teddy K or the message of "Rev" Wright? Billy Graham has been slandered here while Wright has been defended.
I don't agree with everything Beck says but I have never seen him promote fear. He has revealed many truths that are being covered up and disregarded in our nation today. That may cause fear in some as truth does that sometimes. Tell me some of the things about him you are speaking of.

i enjoyed Becks speech, i seen just as much right in front of my TV didnt really have to be there in person.

im just wondering if he is paving the way for Mitt Rominy as the next President since they both are Mormons...........i was blown away when i found out Beck was a mormom. He is smart intelligent and has great insight on political agendas "but" don't forget the important matter unless the Mormom's have changed their doctrin he believes in, will set the tone for how he will lead. God come soon , such a messed up world
---Lea on 9/11/10


Elder: I find extremism on either side of the aisle to be scary, as it sees only evil in the opposing side. There used to be moderates in both parties, but they have been shouted down by extremism, and that is what I find scary. Not the religious aspects of Beck's movement, but his teaching of fear of anything that does not reflect HIS beliefs in what is best for this country.
---Trish9863 on 9/11/10


Like the Manhattan Document, most Christians do not object to the Restoring Honor message, but the ecumenical nature of the event. In other words, it is not correct to be a yoke-fellow with Mormons, Romanists, etc., or with those who support doing so, 2Corinthians 6:14-18, Ephesians 5:3-17, 1Timothy 5:22, 2John 1:9-11.
Wayne 9/9, ..."You're hypocrites, and the truth is not in you." Your use of 1John 2:4 is odd since you advocate violating it, and you misapply and misunderstand the Bible use of the word hypocrite - H2611 impious / G5273 dissembler, Proverbs 15:28, 18:13, Romans 1:32, 2Corinthians 1:12, 13:8, 1John 2:4, 4:1-6.
Larry, Jack Hayford, T.D. Jakes, John McArthur, Chuck Swindoll - say what?
---Glenn on 9/11/10


\\ Just a message that we should be looking to God through Jesus as the only way to restore honor in this country, and that it starts at home with each individual.\\

And I'm sure that the rabbis and imams of his "Black-robed Regiment" on the platform behind him agree with this statement 100%.
---Cluny on 9/10/10

I know people who attended under the belief the country needed to return to its religious roots. Its a bit of a re-written history but their intentions were sincere even if it was more about religious conservatives than Jesus. I agree with their intentions.
I could not share the stage with a Mormon any more than I could a Muslim for we have NO common ground in truth.
If the rally would have been held by John McArthur, Chuck Swindoll or T.D. Jakes I would come down differently, but Beck's rants do not reflect the sweet speech of man influenced by the Holy Spirit. He will never be confused with Jack Hayford. Nevermind his pathetic assertion that President Obama, who is not black, is prejudiced against whites.
---larry on 9/9/10


first off, it was a "Restoring Honor Ralley" not a TEA party march. There was nothing about politics there. Just a message that we should be looking to God through Jesus as the only way to restore honor in this country, and that it starts at home with each individual. That was the message. For all of you that have attacked Glen Beck for this you're walking hand in hand with Mr Athiest. You're hypocrits, and the truth is not in you.

"Glenn Beck is a scary person who has the right to free speech, just as the rest of us, but his message is one of hate, and I am concerned about his followers taking power in the Republican party, and our country. It would be pretty ugly."
Trish9863
This country is going to get ugly and it won't be because of Beck. It will be because of professing "christians" who refuse to see.
Maybe if Beck supported Islam he'd be accepted by the liberals here who have NOT seen him promote hate........

It's curious that the Saduccees, who had their own notion of Sola Scriptura didn't believe in angels, since there's one in the Garden of Eden, right near the start of Genesis.

Pray. You, God, are in control. "'In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.'" (Genesis 22:18) So, obeying God has gotten "all the nations of the earth" "blessed". If you obey God, He will make what you do count, with the results He Himself is able to produce so better than what any human politician or voter is trying to *control* people to get. "We won't get it from people, we'll get it from God."

But He says to *pray* for our leaders. 1 Timothy 2:1-4. "For he is God's minister to your for good," Paul says in Romans 13:4. We can make God's use of any secular authority person, I think this means.

\\Pharisees would most closely correspond to the conservative right wing, while Jesus and the Apotles would correspond to the liberal left wing.\\

And don't forget, the Saducees (from the name Zadok the Priest) considered themselves to be the REAL conservatives, as they didn't allow ideas such as resurrection and angels to clutter up the traditional Jewish faith revealed in the Torah.

And do nothing, believe nothing, atheist are arrived genius's.
We should follow them, as leaders who believe in "Nothing".
"Nothing" is their god.
Nothing is worshipped.
Nothing is created by the Nothing god,so Nothing can be expected or Nothing done.
Nothing is bliss.
Nothing is disalloyed.
Nothing is their law.
Nothing is their country.
Nothing holding or freeing.
Nothing stays in the closet.
But, sometimes his followers do.

shira_3877:

The Bible says our battle is againt the forces of Darkness, not the forces of the Left. If one applies modern political labels to the situation in Palestine 2000 years ago, the Pharisees would most closely correspond to the conservative right wing, while Jesus and the Apotles would correspond to the liberal left wing.

Personally, I wish I would have went... I could not afford to go... I believe that he is doing great things for America... he is opening the eyes of some and probably is closing some other eyes... that's ok with me. When I listen to Beck, I am not listening to a "preacher", If I want to listen to a great preacher I would choose Chuck Swindoll. I am listening to his views on America and how great She is. I believe that he, and millions like him, want the best for America and at this time, we are standing at a cross road. We need to take the proper path. I believe that the proper path is to elect a new congress, senate and president.

There is one God, His Son, Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, crucified, rose again the third day and is sitting on the right hand of God. Glenn Beck never mentioned lds. I do care what is fed to christians but he was not feeding the lds to us. He was for unity, God, Jesus, country, flag and the founding fathers. I do not believe any part of lds. I am a born again christian who hates the present government and would like to see change this november.

Glenn Beck is one of the best actors around, so when he tries to be sincere, as he did at the Rally, it is hard for us to trust sometimes. The positives were: quiet crowd, group of various religion leaders, advice for centering on faith, hope, charity. Don't throw out the good with the bad!
---Geraldine on 9/7/10


Shira...Would that be the ONE TRUE GOD or the god who lives on Kolob as LDS doctrine says? Would that be the Jesus who is the Son of God (God himself) or the Jesus who is the spirit brother of Lucifer? Why would a Christian not care that Beck is LDS? Those same Christians who don't care about those things won't care when the Antichrist comes around saying he is God.

Glen Beck was calling for christians to stand together against the leftest in our government. He was promoting God, country, charity (love). He was promoting prayer. He was promoting Jesus Christ. I know he is an lds and I don't care. I believe he is saved but no one knows but God and him. Others in power should promote God, Jesus Christ, love country and our American flag. Thank God for people who will take a stand.
