Is Glenn fasting or just having a milkshake for breakfast?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Today begins Glenn’s “40 day, 40 night challenge” leading up to the election, and Glenn appears to be off to a rough start.

“It’s like Fat Tuesday morning,” Glenn said this morning. “Because I’m going to give up — I’m going to give up all sweets and ice cream.”

Of course Stu couldn’t help but notice Glenn was already halfway through a milkshake.

“I’m not doing it today,” Glenn fired back.

Stu quickly noticed that there are only 39 days until the election, and Glenn said he was participating in 40 days of fasting and prayer.

“Weren’t you supposed to do it 40 days before the election?” he asked Glenn. “You’re not fasting. You’re drinking a shake for breakfast. That’s so far the opposite of fasting – that’s like intentionally violating all of the Ten Commandments at once.”

Glenn defended himself by claiming he “hadn’t decided” what he was going to give up until this morning. (writers note: we’re still not sure how not deciding until this morning justifies Glenn’s choice of a milkshake for breakfast…)

After continuing to get hounded by Stu, Glenn put the option of giving up paying Stu for his “40 day, 40 night challenge.”

“That does not make you righteous,” Stu responded.

The verdict isn’t out yet on Glenn’s decision to give off ice cream or paying Stu, but one thing is certain, this morning Glenn didn’t seemed to have a lot of interest in giving up ice cream.

    If we fast, we are not to appear to others that we are suffering. That’s just patting yourself on the back in an attempt to draw attention to yourself to show how “good” you are. That is not Christian at all. Nobody should even be able to tell that you’re fasting other than God. That which is in secret will be rewarded openly. Those who do otherwise, well they have their reward.

      True – also it looks like the site is having fits again with the Disqus system; I am having to use FoxFire to post.

        I’ll just start blaming obama for it. Who cares if it’s true or not huh? It’s the tiny bit of liberal in me.

          Hope it can help; for some reason IE is not working well with the disqus and this site.

            Well it was worth the shot but still didn’t help much. It has to be the site because I can post everywhere else or land is right and Obama messing with things.

            Just one small point: There are many reasons why IE is known as Internet ExploDer…

        I thought it was my problem. I had trouble posting as well. Thanks for letting me know.

    Fasting is to be done in private; the ancient Pharisees often gave the impression of piously fasting to gather the good will of the people. As Lord Jesus said of them, they have their reward here on the earth.

    Let each person approach God humbly and with the way their relationship is between them; not all people due to medical reasons can fast, yet we all can beseech God in prayer with a devoted heart and being.

    It is easy to pray for anyone who says ‘I cannot pray very good,’ there is no bad prayer other than one not asked. Open your heart and just put it out there to God, he will hear us all.

    If anything else, ask God to help you to pray, He will answer.

    Christ declared if you have the faith of a mustard seed, mountains can be moved; and it is truth – mountains of difficulties can be moved with faith (trust, belief, and hope) in God through Christ.

    Be patient and steady in the faith, for the wonderful work of God is going on even as we speak (or write in this case).

    I love the fact that of all the brands of milkshakes that Glenn could have chosen, he chose to drink a Chick-Fil-A milkshake. 😀
