‘You are out of gas’: Glenn shares the frank advice he recently received

There hasn’t been a lot of positive news to report on as of late. On radio this morning, Glenn tried to focus on some real world solutions to the problems that are afflicting each and every one us. Over the weekend, Glenn received some frank advice from a friend who recognized that Glenn is “out of gas” these days. What can we do refuel? The answer stems from spending more time with scripture.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

Now let me give you the piece of advice you are probably not going to like that somebody gave me just this last weekend that is absolutely correct. And reason why he gave me this advice is because he knew I would know it’s right. The question is whether I do it or not.

He said ‘Glenn, you are running on fumes, brother.’

And I said, ‘I know I am. I’m trying to change my life a bit.’

He says no, ‘I’m talking about spiritual fumes. You have put poison into your body for so long. Into your mind, you have put this hate. You have put all of the news stories, all this anger…’

I said, ‘I’m not reading hate. I’m reading things about hate. I am reading things to try to understand it. I’m reading the news.’

We’ve talked about it before. I feel, and I know you do too, you feel like you are watching your kid being slowly strangled. Our country is being strangled to death. Our way of life is being strangled to death. Our faith is being strangled to death. And we’re watching it – a violent scene every day, and we talk about those things every single day.

He said, ‘How many hours a day are you focused on the things that are wrong in the world?’

I said, ‘My whole day.’

He said, ‘How many hours are you reading your scriptures?’

I said, ‘I don’t know. I try to do half an hour, maybe an hour.’

He said, ‘You’ve got to drop everything else. You are out of gas. There’s no way anyone can talk about love. There’s no way that anyone can focus on doing the right thing, if you’re not putting more in of that than the other – especially since you have depleted everything.’

Basically, you are what you eat. What are you eating every day? What is it we are eating every day? We are eating garbage. We are eating fast food, fast news. We’re watching the Kardashians or whatever your release is because you want that release. I don’t want to think anymore. Why are we addicted to everything? Why are we addicted either to drugs, to the Internet, to our cell phone, to Facebook, to virtual reality, games, whatever it is we are doing – why is it we are addicted to it? Because we just want to go numb for a while.

It’s too hard. I’m tired. It’s too hard. I don’t know how to do it. That’s my biggest frustration. I don’t know how to do it. I don’t know how to make it make sense. I don’t know how to raise my children in this. I don’t know how to make anything make sense. That’s my biggest frustration, and that’s the way I feel inside. Can you throw me a bone, please? I don’t know how to do it.

My positivity has come from spending an hour a day with one book, and I know nobody wants to hear it because our churches have failed us. The people get up and preach to us – nobody wants to hear a preacher. Nobody wants to hear that crap because we don’t think they actually mean it. We think that it’s about money. It’s about power. It’s about control. It’s about fame. It’s about somebody selling another book. I know. I’m the guy who writes books and sells them like they are going out of style.

I get it. Quite honestly, I mean this sincerely, if I could – and I can, I just don’t – I do things that I feel I am told to do. And I am told to stand, but everything in me says unplug it all. Unplug it all. Start over. Unplug it all. That’s insane. That’s insane. And I know the difference between me and Him. And that’s me. That’s me saying, ‘Unplug it all’ because I’m also at the same time saying ‘I don’t know how to do what you want me to do.’

Here’s what we have to do. We have to re-prioritize our lives. We have to start feeding ourselves good. We have to start feeding ourselves not junk food good… You are starving for anything that shows that we have a connection to each other, that there’s decency and honor and love in the world, when nothing else matters. We get it from animals because we know animals aren’t trying to sell us anything, so we accept it. And we are starving for it.

Come on, man, we all know eating McDonald’s isn’t good. You eat it when you’re in a hurry and there’s no other choice. No one says, ‘Where do you want to go tonight?’ ‘I don’t know. We’ve been saving up. Let’s go to McDonald’s.’ You are doing through the drive-through because it is convenient and because it’s fast. You are not going there because you need nutrition. You are going there because you need the basic sustenance. That’s why you are going there. That’s what that story is – the basic bottom line because none of us have time to get something good. We just have to have a little bit of it.

We have to find ways to go a little deeper than the sea lion story, but nobody wants to hear it from a preacher. You know how long I pray? I have prayed for the last three years, ‘Will you please help me like your book because I don’t like your book. It’s boring. I know you are the author, and I know it’s really not the thing to say. It is the best-selling book of all time, but it’s boring as snot and I don’t understand it. Could you please help me like it?’

Three years I prayed. I finally like it. I love it. I love it. Now the question is: Will I make the time to spend two hours every day in that book. Think about how much time you spend on whatever it is. I’m telling you where the vitamins and minerals can be found. You will not be able to withstand the storm. Mark my words. My gosh, I know this is true. You will not be able to stand the coming storm without this. You will not be able to stand with love and honor and decency. You will not stand, unless you do this. Let’s try to help each other do this.

    I completely agree. Too much exposure to garbage and one becomes very cynical and negative. The news is full of garbage. I see it with the older generation – my parents, for example. They watch all the news reporting from a variety of different networks and then what they talk about is that negative stuff. It’s not that they want to talk about negative things, but that’s what’s in their minds. That’s what they’re filling their thoughts with day in and day out.

    We purposely cancelled our local and cable TV for that very reason. We didn’t want to hear it any more. It was time to selectively decide what we allowed our minds exposure to.

    We often get the response, “Well, then how do you stay in touch with what’s going on in the world?” It’s easy. People talk and discuss news stories. And we often check in with your website, as well as Fox news, and see what’s being talked about. My husband is in law enforcement so there’s no shortage of news being discussed in that office. Ha.

    I often refer to Phil. 4:8, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” We gotta get the good stuff coming in — this brings health to the body!!!

    Glenn, as you make your transition to Internet evangelism, will you drop the negativity that’s made you a millionaire? Probably not too much risk since TV evangelists have shown their audience is perfectly willing to give their last dollar. But you’ll have to try harder than airing skits mocking rape statistics.

    Glenn says “A S S” on the air, but use the term here and it gets flagged. How’s about dat?

    Glenn Beck is someone who has devoted his life and career to spreading fear, gloom, doom, End Times supernatural thinking and paranoid conspiracies. He’s made tens of millions from it too. Recently, it’s come around to bite him in the a s s and he’s finally had enough of it. But since that’s how he makes money, he’s got a real conundrum on his hands.

    THE END IS COMING! A STORM IS COMING! etc. Glenn Beck and John Hagee are both wrong. Time will prove what I already know.

  • CGrove

    Glenn got caught doing his conspiracy theory routine and sued for defamation so now he’s focusing more on the religious supernatural nonsense.

    I’d recommend watching the Bible miniseries on Netflix as perhaps an intro to reading the book. You can skip the Samson episode. It was interesting and kinda good, and it did get me wanting to pick up where I left off last time somewhere in 2nd Kings. Man that King Saul was a dysfunctional fellow, eh?

  • Maryland Girl

    Glenn Beck is a twi-bit traitor and should hide is face. Just when this country needs him the most, he turns on the people that are trying to save this country. Operation American Spring is not, nor has it ever been a movement to violently run into D.C. and overturn the government. Yet that is what he announced to all of his viewers.

    Even now, as it is most obvious that the movement is peaceful, he will not recant or retract his statement. Yes, OAS is still going on and needs Patriots to support it. Glenn Beck was either bought off, or he feared the threats that this criminal administration put on his life. Either way, he should hang his head in shame!!

  • Jack Smith

    The real question is — if you think Glenn is just wrong/bad for our world and makes his $$$ by selling greed, fear and gloom…then WHY are you here on his website???????????? Go somewhere else!!

  • Jessica Kellogg

    I am shaking my head at comments like these when a man is truly honest as he is admits his faults publicly, then says this is how I should lead my life. There are still people willing to rub your mistakes that you fully admitted too in your face. They totally miss the whole message! How crazy is that! How many of you would be willing to publicly admitted your faults to anyone listening? Not a lot would but he does. He is imperfect as you who rub his face in his mistakes. Look at yourself first before rubbing others mistakes in their faces. There is something coming ahead one day that will knock us back and if we aren’t strong enough to face it we will fall and never get up again. It will be to hard. Life isn’t getting easier to deal with, its getting harder! You either face it that you need to stand for something or just fall for anything that comes along. Standing for goodness and love is the side I want to be on!

I would love to see you in a debate with either Glenn or John Hagee. They would eat you alive.

    There are some great thoughts presented here. It goes along with a book I have been reading lately. Resolved:13 Resolutions for Life talks about prioritizing our life into things we can make a difference in and with regarding our life and how we live it. The book speaks about discovering our purpose and living based on that and not on the abstract agenda the world would have us live by.

    You have been pointed in the right direction. I was in your place. You stated that reading the Bible can be boring, that’s true when it comes to all be begets. But the Bible is the most exciting book ever if you read it chronological. At the first of this year I began my journey in the Chronological Bible. Yes, there are still the begets, and I admit I didn’t want to read it. But once you get past that, there is a complete story. It’s not scattered everywhere. You get it all in the same reading. The stories of David and Solomon are all together, as are all the stories. It has been a blessing for me. I get answers that I never saw before. Sometimes I read for an hour, other time more or less. But I find things that I never saw before. Maybe this is the direction that can help you. I hope so. You must not let the hate take over, yet you must not preach either. Find your focus in scriptures.

It is so good for you on so many levels, spiritual included.

    Makes a lot of sense. If we are constantly putting out negative
    vibrations that is what we and the whole planet will feel. Negativity
    in negativity out. We are connected to the planet and the planet is
    connected to us. Could be the reason why the weather has changed,
    because the people have changed. All that negativity (energy) has to be
    felt and going somewhere. We are all connected and love and compassion is the answer. If you want to change the world, start with changing yourself. More love and compassion will go along way in changing our lives for the better. I personally have
    been eliminating all the negativity that I can in my life and it has made a big difference. We got rid of our cable and I no longer connect with people that are nothing but negative. I was getting to the point that I could not take it any longer and just wanted to unplug from society. Now I realized how much of my life that I was wasting being upset, reading and watching all the drama etc. My life and my relationships have been so much better and I am getting back to my happy old self once again. I missed my old self and glad to be back and enjoying my life.

  • Liz Long

    This is so good. Such a difficult balance to stand against the evil in the World and stay firm in the goodness of His grace. THANK YOU for the work that you are doing. You and your family. I confess I don’t pray for you all often enough. Warriors in the line of fire. It is so much easier just to pull back and bury our heads but Christians have been doing that for decades and look where we are today. No God in schools, abortion a right and how dare anyone question it, a government that is out of control and and and. Sigh. BUT, we can know that All things work together for good to those that love Him. God only asks that you do what He has called you to do. As hard as it is to believe, none of this chaos is out of His control and there is a plan. Keep up the good fight and God bless you and your family for your faithfulness.

  • CasieKaye

    No matter what human is wrong or right, God is ALWAYS right. And He doesn’t lie. Time will prove what you already know? Can you see the future? God can. And He hasn’t been silent about it. Are you sure what you “know” is the truth? Don’t even take it on a faith issue. Go full bore technical. Puruse the old testament’s prophecies, check the statistical probability of the ones that have been fulfilled. Or, just check the statistical probability of the upwards of 300 prophecies about Jesus Christ himself. Yeah, yeah, you don’t believe the virgin birth, etc. That’s just one or two…But I doubt being crucified on a Roman cross (prophecies told hundreds of years before the Romans even invented it), with exact details of the piercings and the gall and the casting of lots for his garments, and the hour of day and many more could all be orchestrated by some huge conspiracy. If you have an open mind. Here’s a rocket scientist (quite literally) who explains these probabilites in detail. His name is Chuck Missler. http://youtu.be/dl_Ij7atKM0

    Don’t melt down on us devilboy. The supernatural is a figment of your imagination. There are no ghosts, demons, devils, gods, spirits, angels, leprechauns, witches or any of the rest of that nonsense.

    Actually, the real reason is probably closer to something like Glenn has been advised by his legal team that he can lose his fortune and his career if violence happens and it’s done by his audience. That’s why he’s been trying to distance himself from it, change his look and move into creating entertainment/religious propaganda.

    And your point is what exactly? That he is a millionaire? Okay, plenty of those out there who don’t care about this country. I don’t care if he is rich. I care about what is speaking on and its issues the top media keeps misdirecting everyone on. What hatred? You need to be more specific yourself. Fear, yeah people should be afraid that our liberty and freedom are at risk. Because it is, that is the truth and people like you don’t want to listen to it. Guess what? Turn him off! You don’t have to listen. Our country is divided, yet again its the truth. Like it or don’t. Mistrust, yes lot of us do mistrust our government because to much is happening that is out of the hands of the people. Its not longer our say but their say and what ever agenda they want to push off on us.
    Abraham Lincoln said it best “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    That is the core values to this country that people like Glenn Beck and everyone like me is trying to keep.

  • Marcus Rhodes

    My advice to everyone is to listen to your scriptures, and broaden them. Joseph Smith echoed Paul’s (?) observation that ‘faith comes from *hearing* the word’. So, download them to your phone, audio-player, car, whatever, and listen to them whenever you can: During your commute, going to sleep at night, walking, running, … You’ll be amazed what you hear differently than you ever read it before. You’ll be amazed what you learn, and what questions come to mind, and what answers appear. Then add the Book of Jasher, the Book of Enoch, the Mahabarata, the Prose Edda, the Kalavala, the translations of Marc Aurel Stein, everything you can get your hands on. And, trust me, you’ll want to. You will hunger and thirst. You’ll be voracious. And you will change in ways you never suspected.

  • Bridget Burton

    Glenn, I so agree. I read our Lord’s book sometimes often and other times it sits at my bedside. What I know is that there is evil in the world and the light must shine for any good to conquer it. I know that if there are not people” touched by God” to bring the truth, all of it, we as a people get swallowed up by the lies. In the beginning evil masquerades as a gift that brings us comfort, kindness, beauty and success and then as quick as a flash you have lost your spirit, your purpose and your life. It’s then too late. But is it? I too struggle because I post about faith, children, supporting Israel and I am very passionate about posting the truth of the destroying of our nation and our people. We sit comfortably, all the while the prophecies in the Bible will come true. No matter what happens, God will bring judgement. THIS is the other hand of your plea and that is that we must prepare for the evil that will come. A love that is so pure, so sacrificial and so complete that it changes us. It grows us to a faith that no matter what, keeps us steadfast in the glory and power and plan of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a simple person who has been saved by grace more times than I can count. When I do read my Bible and really study on it, there are ah-ha moments that touch me in a way that can never be described. So, yes I know that my thoughts are built more in the “world” than in His “Living Word”. I study the Life Application Bible with notes. I know emotion is not an indication but at times I am so overcome with gratitude by His unfailing love, I weep. ANOTHER thing is that we are in the world and we need to prepare not only emotionally but physically for what will come. What I think is that I need to know “His words”, acknowledge Him as Lord, and no matter what happens I must strive be real/genuine in my belief. 2nd I need to learn how to be a “prepper” and how to take care of my family when the economy brings us to our knees and our urgency will be of survival. It’s all too much. Life is also so full with the beauty of family, friends and the business of living that taking the time for “extra stuff” is overwhelming. Forgive me for rambling. You just brought up in me what I already know. His word is the only assuredness for a glorious, pain-free, joy filled eternity. Praying for you and yours Glenn. In all that you do God has been talking to you.

    One of Satan’s greatest trick on man kind is to make him believe there is no God..

  • Sara Sweet-Watkins

    Amazing! I feel the same way and life has got me down and at times I have felt that there was no more hope and that hope was a thing of the past for me. I literally felt as though my very foundation I had worked so hard to build was beginning to crumble underneath me. I had realized that I too, had filled my tank with ” watered down gasoline” and it just wasn’t working effectively. I also began to read my scriptures and pray diligently and learned Heavenly Father is always waiting for us to open that door at our own free will. I learned it is about obedience to all of things we are asked to do. We no longer can straddle on the line of good and evil, now is the time we have to choose which side we are on, and I chose good. I also learned a lot about the atonement of Jesus Christ is not just for my sins but the sins of others that are affecting me in my life. Everything in this world that I read, hear, or see is not for me to carry, and especially all the hurt and pain I have endured in my life. I don’t have to hold on anymore!! What a freeing thought to be able to let go! I have chosen to spread love, hope, joy, and good as much as I can give and not worry about the details. When I feel sadness, loss, and pain I choose to work it out through Heavenly Father so I don’t spread that to others. I love all of the good you do everyday and appreciate the hope that you give to others and someday I hope to meet you, your stories are inspiring! Love to you and your family!

    Glenn, I so agree. I read our Lord’s book sometimes often and other times it sits at my bedside. What I know is that there is evil in the world and the light must shine for any good to conquer it. I know that if there are not people” touched by God” to bring the truth, all of it, we as a people get swallowed up by the lies. In the beginning evil masquerades as a gift that brings us comfort, kindness, beauty and success and then as quick as a flash you have lost your spirit, your purpose and your life. It’s then too late. But is it? I too struggle because I post about faith, children, supporting Israel and I am very passionate about posting the truth of the destroying of our nation and our people. We sit comfortably, all the while the prophecies in the Bible will come true. No matter what happens, God will bring judgement. THIS is the other hand of your plea and that is that we must prepare for the evil that will come. A love that is so pure, so sacrificial and so complete that it changes us. It grows us to a faith that no matter what, keeps us steadfast in the glory and power and plan of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a simple person who has been saved by grace more times than I can count. When I do read my Bible and really study on it, there are ah-ha moments that touch me in a way that can never be described. So, yes I know that my thoughts are built more in the “world” than in His “Living Word”. I study the Life Application Bible with notes. I know emotion is not an indication but at times I am so overcome with gratitude by His unfailing love, I weep. ANOTHER thing is that we are in the world and we need to prepare not only emotionally but physically for what will come. What I think is that I need to know “His words”, acknowledge Him as Lord, and no matter what happens I must strive be real/genuine in my belief. 2nd I need to learn how to be a “prepper” and how to take care of my family when the economy brings us to our knees and our urgency will be of survival. It’s all too much. Life is also so full with the beauty of family, friends and the business of living that taking the time for “extra stuff” is overwhelming. Forgive me for rambling. You just brought up in me what I already know. His word is the only assuredness for a glorious, pain-free, joy filled eternity. Praying for you and yours Glenn.

    Glenn’s inflammatory FALSE conspiracies and rhetoric has divided, riled up and frightened people and he’s profited from it. He sells fear and hatred by running his yap and that’s nothing to admire. Making money is not the issue, it’s how he made it.

    Jessica, it’s obvious that he has you snowed, but reasonable people have been onto his game for years. A leading conservative figure named Andrew Breitbart summed it up pretty well here. Take a listen Jessica. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGOrp3FU6fE

    Glenn needs to get off the air, unplug from the web, stop doing what he’s doing and clean up his life. He has a defamation lawsuit filed against him for crissakes.

There’s a whole world of information out there, not to mention real-world experience with real people, a bit of which would teach you a lot about the sort of vipers you’ve chosen to fall in with.

    Good God. Your friend could have been talking to me. I am in exactly the same place and have been for quite a while now. I understand looking for the “good” to put into your life. The problem is, where do we find it? You can’t turn on the TV or even try to read the news without getting depressed. The junk on TV is making us a ll stupid. The news makes your head and quite honestly, your heart hurt. There seems to be no hope for turning this country around. The more educated and informed I become the more I wish I was just an oblivious fool. Life has to be easier for the low information crowd? I’ve tried four churches in the last 2+ years and everybody just seems fake. And like your friend says “do these Preachers actually mean it?”

    So we’ve ruled out TV, news, and church, what does that leave us? Family? I love my family but their just as nuts as the rest of the world. It’s been painfully obvious that Glenn has been overloaded, distracted, or just simply burnt out. I get it, I am too! I just keep hoping that this little experiment called The Blaze can find us some hope? I guess that thought opens me up to ridicule by the trolls and haters but I just don’t care anymore. Glenn and crew have become family to me over the years and I trust this network, platform, or whatever the heck ya call it, with everything in me. Don’t give up Glenn, find us a way out of this mess! I know you can’t save the world. Just focus on us, your family.

  • Jessica Kellogg

    CGrove, you will have to one day find out on your own which one is right and which of us is wrong. For now what is wrong with a faith that has compassion for people and told to love them. How is that hurting any of us to believe in faith that teach love and understanding and forgiveness? Yes there will be a day you will learn and I will learn the full truth. You have your beliefs and Christians has theirs. I rather live my life believing there is a God who loves me past my understanding than live a life with belief that there is nothing. Its not hurting me to have faith. Its helped me be more loving and compassionate towards others. I don’t have to like people, but we are called to love them despite flaws. Which you of course know you have too.

    I’m a 83 year old Christian since I was 23. I’ve read seven different versions of the Bible and have really studied prophesy. Most of prophesy has come about during my lifetime. These blood moons that happen this year and next really proves we are in end times. One or more of four things will happen……a major war…….Jews rebuild the Temple……that last days earthquake that will level mountains…..Jesus returns for HIS Church. Those “doubting Thomas’s” should read Mathew 24. There are no prophesy’s left to happen! We will all stand before Jesus in the last Judgement and I would advise all to get “BORN AGAIN”!!!!!!!!!

    When you are chasing hard after the Lord Jesus Christ everything else will fall into perspective. NOTHING is as important as your relationship with God, nothing.

    So CGrove tell me, while it definitely is reality, what’s reasonable about you spending hours worshiping Glen Beck? You obviously do as this is who you would appear to spend all of your time on. You are what you think on. “I prefer reason and reality”. Haha

  • Tina Thompson-Leonard

    I don’t watch much news because of this very reason. I used to listen to Hannity and Beck all the time and radio discussion’s to the point I would just be irritated all day all the time because of things happening. However, we focus on the positive things….in our world, in our relationships and focus on staying in the Word of God, He shows us the things that are coming and we know they are coming. It’s not like we can change God’s word. You know the signs of the times are times to encourage others to draw closer to God, not to jump in the sinking boat with those who claim it all hogwash. We must try to reach those who don’t know Christ and encourage others to do the same. Glen is fine…he has compassion when he shares things through his programs and enlightens people to truth.

    Glenn Beck’s strength is in his transparency. That is what made me, a card carrying progressive for twenty years, tune in again and again to his show on FOX, and now on The Blaze. In 2007 I would switch back and forth between MSNBC, CNN and FOX. Reluctantly I had to admit that Beck was the most authentic of the bunch. His honesty hooked me. His emotion intrigued me. His ideas were more “progressive” than any progressive I had heard. His admission of recovery from alcoholism gave us common ground, and explained a lot about his honesty–and the spiritual connection. I am now a listener, because he is honest and open to finding the truth. I do not buy into everything he says, but he asks me to check it out for myself. I have since read and studied the Constitution, the Federalist/Anti-Federalist papers, etc. I watched him interview atheists, gays, Jews, Christians, Muslims, liberals, conservatives–always with respect and with a keen ear to understand others–how refreshing. Many of my progressive friends think I have lost my mind, and I tell them that I have; I have jettisoned the mind that had concretized around a rigid ideology. I now question everything, and look for truth where it shows up–something I thought my old liberalism valued. It largely did and does not. So this latest admission of running on fumes is another example of honesty. Most of us in this modern world of faster, bigger, better are running on fumes. Admission is the first step. Then a solution can be found. My one critique is the lack of emphasis on understanding spirituality and Christianity from inside the human soul. The early followers of Christ relied on a living dynamic dialogue with the Infinite–the conversation about theology followed. We have it turned around, beginning with theological beliefs and trying to fit them onto the Living Word. The early Christians knew the Living Christ. They called Him The Word (Logos) which is different than the word (the Bible). The Bible is divine a portal, but it is not The Living Word. The Bible contains insights from those who communed with The Word, but those insights must be personal to each person who dialogues with The Word. Our modern western religious culture is in dire need of learning to dialogue with The Word. We, including most churches, liberal and conservative, are spiritually illiterate. Until we relearn to individually commune with the Infinite, we will continue to pass along spiritual insights from secondary sources. Theology is wonderful, but is a result of knowing God. I am a theologian, so I am not dissing theology–simply putting it in its right place. It is secondary–not the fresh and living Presence. Continue with the honesty Mr. Beck. Authenticity in the media these days is rare–very very rare.

    Glenn…you cannot save this country…though God knows you’ve tried. I think your role now is to provide a place where those of us who are believers can “meet” and prepare for the collapse which we all know is coming…and, indeed, is happening right before our eyes. Then we are to be Salt and Light. When others are looking to the government and the news media and Hollywood for answers and solace, they will be amazed at our lack of fear and our calm and wonder where it comes from. Then, finally, perhaps they will be open to God’s truth…that we cannot be destroyed by this world because we are not OF this world. Always always remember. As a believer…YOU HAVE ALREADY WON!

    No, the truth is being told about them. No, not all of them, but too many of them will not speak up about what is being done in the name of their religion. I have read the Bible, and it inspires me and gives me hope in the end. I have also read the Koran, along with the commentaries written by their approved imams. To say that it frightens me is an understatement. What is more frightening about it is that the decent Muslims are silent. If you consider that inflammatory, there is nothing more that I can say. Or should say.

    It sounds crazy but that same thing happened to me a while back. I got so caught up in what is going on in the world and no one seems to care. I got so depressed that I had to off face book and everything for a few weeks. I had to turn to my Bible because that was the only place to turn. I agree that if we do not feed our body and soul we will be stand or make it. God must be showing his people that we need to get prepared.

  • Jerm Smith

    Amen brother Glenn. Even though I feel the Mormon theology is a false religion (because in Mormonism, one eventually becomes a ‘god’ — sounds eerily similar to the serpent’s Garden promises!), I will totally agree with the Holy Bible being the sustenance that can get us through these ages.

    Such wealth of information can be extremely depressing, and here recently I went through a similar crisis – when presented with so much negative information, it feels as if *we* (individually) are to blame for the woes of the world. While I do believe that the body of the church *does* have some blame for the woes of the world (I gotta hand it to the Mormons, they have excellent outreach efforts that I wish more Christians would follow), in the end we have to realize God has things in His control.

    Just like the military teaches us – be concerned with things “in your lane” and don’t worry about the woes of the entire country or military…just worry about things you can affect.

    Same thing here – worry about things you can affect, and use the Bible as guidance on *how* you should affect those things.

    I agree. Both Pastor Murray (Rest in the LORD) and Glenn would encourage me to not take their word for what they were teaching/reporting but to do my own research. I find the best thing to do when I am overwhelmed in the news or in my own daily walk is to follow the scripture and: Be still and KNOW that I am GOD–how that translates in the moment is to reach for the therapeutic techniques of thought stopping and deep breathing. Truly powerful–try it sometime…

    Thanks Glenn…this helped me today.

  • John Bushman

    Glenn this is so true. Here is a pitch for how you could use your
    media resources to do something big to help in this area. The Daily Recharge.

    Thanks for the correction. I am usually doing that to “help” others with their grammar (or which there to use!). I am a very early baby boomer, and can use all the help I can get.

    How do you throw out the garbage if you don’t see it? More importantly, how do I get my neighbors to throw out their garbage if they say, “What garbage”? If we didn’t have people willing to step up and teach or serve, we would be in trouble. Good comes from doing something about the crap that is going on around us. Stop looking for people to do your thinking for you…and stop whining about other peoples opinions. They have as much a right to their opinions as you do to yours…just please don’t flap your jaws about things you know very little about. Do your homework and at the end of the day, connect with your God or higher power or the universe and ask what you can do to make life better.

    Thank-you Bridget for the kind words….I have always known our LORD…I was very lucky to be brought up in a family who loved the LORD and I was given the gift of faith which was nurtured in me by my beautiful mom….she actually gave me the beautiful bible I mentioned earlier..I have to share something with my friends in faith… My grandfather GEORGE, my moms dad, lived until he was 96….a true gentleman….he prayed everyday of his life and had this little prayer book he read from always….he came here from Croatia by boat to New York. When he came on shore this wonderful man seen our Empire State Building and he feel to his knees and he kissed the ground…just so thankful to be in the land of the free and the land of opportunity…he helped build the holland tunnel with a pickax for very little pay…can you just imagine this? The reason I bring this wonderful man up is his prayer book in which he prayed from for many years I now have…I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT EVERY SINGLE CORNER OF EVERY MULTIPLE PAGE HAS HIS STAINED FINGERPRINTS ON THEM….I now have opened the brand new bible that has been in my nightstand for 10 years in which their are no finger stains on the pages…so I have some catching up to do….HERES IS TO LEAVING FINGERPRINTS ON GODS WORD….IT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD….HE IS THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA…THE START AND THE FINISH…THE BEGINNING AND THE END…LET JESUS KNOW YOU AND YOUR LIFE WILL HAVE SO MANY BLESSINGS IT WILL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF…spoken from experience I might just add…

    It’s worse today. Much much much worse. The defamation lawsuit has really frightened Glenn away from politics. He’s taking refuge under the skirts of “GOD.”

    I think the day he dressed up as Moses on his Fox show was the first sign of his mental breakdown and why Fox fired him, it was now obvious the guy was going nuts.

  • Jaclyn Baggesen

    I don’t have a clue why I said empire state building above when telling you about my grandfather…CORRECTION…IT WAS LADY LIBERTY…my mom read it and said Jaclynn it was the Statue of Liberty… I knew that must of been a momentary brain lapse….
