Is Glenn Beck Setting Himself Up As The Anti-Christ?
His latest statements have sent the Christian Community into an uproar to where even the Mormon’s have questioned his comments.
As I was listening the other morning to the Beckster, I was taken aback by his statement that if you “hear the words social justice in Church, walk out, leave.”
Beck is trying to convince his audience that “social justice” is code for nothing more than socialism and communism. He stresses that he has the answers and sees “liberal/progressive” agenda in disguise of “social justice” and in the Christian Church.
On the blog, We the People, John Eyster wrote a piece today entitled “Sorry Mr. Beck Jesus Preached Social Justice.”
Jim Wallis, President of Sojourners, a progressive group of Christians, took Glenn Beck to task on MSNBC’s Countdown, stating that the Fox personality had “perverted Jesus message.” Wallis even challenged Beck to call him and learn the true theology of “social justice” and then encouraged people to boycott Glenn Beck in response to Beck’s call for members of congregations to boycott “social justice” churches. One of the last comments from Mr. Wallis was that he had had a phone call from Thomas S. Monson 16th President of the Mormon Church, which Beck is a member, stating his disagreement with the Radio/TV hosts opinions.
On another blog, a commenter wrote concerning the idea of the anti-Christ idea:
Hmm, as I hear and read the stories about the Becks, the Palins, the Robertsons, the members of the C-Street gang: In their own personal lives, C-Street members have made a mockery of the group’s Christian teachings…as well as numerous others who proclaim to be Christian all the while denying the poor, the infirmed, and the least among us I start to wonder: What if the apocalyptic anti-Christ is not a single person? What if the anti-Christ is a group of people feigning a belief in Christ, yet but action, they are disavowing the teachings of Christ? Are these guys after all, a collective group called the anti-Christ?
What if, with all his hate rhetoric directed towards liberals, progressives, Democrats, Obama bashing and now the Christian Church, Glenn Beck has been laying a smoke screen?
What if, with all his “I have the answers. Listen to me and you’ll be saved. I’ll show you the way,” along with spewing forth his interpretations of church and state, that the real anti-Christ is, Glenn Beck.
