Are we a nation divided?

What a blessed weekend Tania and I had. I asked for your prayers on Friday as I have a tough week ahead of me. I have a few TV specials and am off radio all week, then back on September 2 with a whole new season of great stuff.

This weekend we were so deeply touched. We spent time meeting with those who, on the surface, are very different than us.

We went to meet with the Archbishop of Los Angeles on Friday.

What a good and decent man. While we don’t agree on everything, we do agree on this: Hearts are growing cold. We are a nation divided against itself and we must change that by working toward reconciliation. It will be found through service and love. A reconciliation with each other and the truth of who we are and who in the end we all answer to.

Then, we spent Sunday morning with our religion followed by a service at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston. I spoke with Joel and Victoria before and after the service. They are always so kind and gentle. While again, we might disagree on “religion”, just as I might have with the Archbishop, we are in total agreement on faith. We all agree that revolution is not needed but instead a “servalution”, as Joel called it.

Service to our fellow man IS service to God. Service will soften our hearts and in turn will turn our country and world.

Then tonight, fourteen friends came to my home back in Dallas to hold a gospel worship service. I am not even sure what “religion” they are. We failed to worry about that. :) We instead shared our mutual faith. Faith that tells us all that nothing is too big for God. He is a God that creates not divides and never wounds but always heals.

They sang and sang and sang, while I prayed and read and listened to them and Him. It was a night of songs of comfort, unity and healing. Wow.

How blessed we are. I will share a short video with you. It doesn’t do it justice.

What great voices and friends. Coming to praise and comfort, sing and pray, and laugh and cry all in joy!

So many friends that love and serve God. All coming together. Each strong in their own religion and because of that fact, they are unafraid to stand with someone completely different than them in so many ways. As this white bread, damn near albino Mormon, sang with fourteen black and Hispanic (maybe two white people too) gospel singers, I realized how blessed we are as a people.

We are a nation divided by political interests but we are not a nation divided when we focus on principles and values. When we do that, it is amazing how much we find in each other where we are almost exactly alike!

We really have so much in common. This weekend in all of my conversations I found that we all feel like an outcast because those in or out of our own religion question our motives, or faith.

Yet, we all came together under the banner of love, service and love of God.

I figure, If everybody I know is in my religion or everyone I know loves Jesus, I just don’t know enough people.

Let me share something really dynamic and true.

“Something has begun.”

Something full of joy. Something bigger than you or I can imagine. Something born of God. There will be no one “leader.” Instead, it will be millions of us coming together to help, inspire, lift up, love and heal. It is going to be amazing, if we “let go and let God”, as us alcoholics say. :)

Good and God are coming in a big way. I have no idea what role religion plays. That is up to the churches, I suppose. But I know this, millions of those who attend those churches (and will continue to do so) will join with others who have deep faith and even those with no religion and we will, together, practice what Ben Franklin called the “American religion.”

There is a God
He will judge us
We should serve Him.
The best way to serve Him is to serve our fellow man.

… And America will find herself again, she will be good again and we will save ourselves and our children from the hatred, rage and injustice so many feel tonight. All will be right and well.

PS: In between these incredible encounters, I had an amazing series of email exchanges about being a better man and better people with my favorite atheist Penn Jillette. Followed by a great hour with another friend who is agnostic about how we can help each other reach more people with the message of love, charity and decency.

I am sure many in their circle tell them the same thing. “How can you be friends with that guy, he is a religious freak etc.” Just as some in my circle or the circle of the Archbishop, Joel, my Mormon bishop or the gospel group at my house must hear: “How can you be friends with (him/them)? (He/they) don’t believe the same stuff.”

Here is the first miracle: We all have so many friends that understand that we don’t all have to believe the same thing. In fact, they almost all believe that the world wouldn’t be as great of a place if we all had a uni opinion. There are no “loyalty oaths” in the land of the free I understand. What matters is how you live your life and how you treat your fellow man. The rest is up to you and God.

As I learned last night “there is no one greater than Him.”

    Yes and your one of the culprits.

    Glenn is sounding more and more like Huckabee….But Beck has been against Huckabee

    • yourpaled

      Well, if you can’t beat ’em, might as well join ’em.

    • http://www.Yahoo.com/?fr=fptb-msgr Determined3

      I respect Huckabee but for a man who use to be a minister much of what he says doesn’t align with GODS WORD not judging just discerning from my studies of GODS WORD.I will be honest and it is just my personal faith I do not believe in the Rapture Theory some verses from GODS WORD have been used to try and show that’s what it means but they never speak of the verse where GODS SAYS I’AM AGAINST THOSE WHO TEACH MY CHILDREN TO FLY TO SAVE THEIR SOULS.GOD ALSO SAID ALL SOULS ARE MINE why because HE CREATED THEM we are born from above.The fallen refused to be born through woman the water so when GOD says I knew you before you were in your mothers womb we were with GOD in heaven that’s my take from GODS WORD doesn’t make me right but it’s what I believe that is GODS WORD I don’t say I believe this but not that I either believe it all or believe none of it well I believe it all that is where I put my Faith,Hope,Trust in my True Father.

      • renkentom

        Lady you profess to be a believer, yet you deny what the Lord states that he will come and collect His church before His Second coming and I don’t know how you can read anything else but what He states. Don’t know where you read that ‘God says I’m against those who teach my children to fly…’. Suggest you find a Bible teaching God fearing church to learn what scripture teaches because you are flirting with disaster unless you do. God bless.

    • palintologist

      Glenn is nowhere near The Huckster.

      • NOLIKEO

        Now if he wants all of us to love each other, I believe that also includes Huckabee. Remember everyone is included.

    • NOLIKEO

      Glenn is changing and he wants us all to love each other. What a wonderful thing he did on Friday night bringing all the different people into his home,
      including it appeared a black choir. I hope he had the Rabbi he used to have on his afternoon show often. He wants to be all things to all people. What a wonderful thing has happened to him….

  • Crassus

    The world burns. Obama plays golf. Glenn Beck sings hymns. Hallelujiah!

    • tonybigs

      The world is burning are you going to fix it? Going to fix it with more fire? Obama is serving himself, the hymns serve others. God will fix it.

      • palintologist

        Crassus is a Beck hater from way back.

      • NMx

        God said to stand in the gap…. not gape at it…

          Prayer is action. Many have faced sword and fire because of prayer.

          • Yo Mamma

            You support hypocrisy. You feed on hypocrisy. Without hypocrisy you have nothing.

  • marthasusan40

    You are good man Glenn Beck ! You are an inspiration to be a better person, mother, wife, Catholic, Christian, sister, aunt, friend and Patriot…thank you for your words.

    • Yo Mamma

      Its shameful what the Catholics are doing to an otherwise good country. Shameful.

      Supporting those that break laws is shameful.

      Why not support ISIS? Ah yes, not the right religion for these hypocriters

      • Elena

        ISIS is of the devil.

        • Yo Mamma

          The devil is a christian invention – not mentioned in Torah – again you run astray of truth

          Did you atone your sins to a Hebrew bloodline Priest?

          No

          Time is running out

          • Elena

            Satan is in the OT. He’s a principal in the book of Job.

            The Torah is concentrated and focused on the God-Human relationship. HaSatan (the adversary) is glossed over in the Garden of Eden. He has a more pivotal role in the NT and the deuterocanonicals.

          • Yo Mamma

            Elana, I have given up with you. I don’t have the patients to jibber jabber about your misconception. All I can say is I hope someone other than YOU gets some benefit to clear their soul

          • Elena

            You are the one who is misguided. I don’t know what books you have been reading, but I can tell you missed the key one — the Bible.

          • Cavy4Freedom

            You won’t change the minds of people who will not hear…dust off your sandals and move on to the next village…and pray for them

          • Elena

            Quite true.

            I am also concerned for someone who might believe this charlatan, Yo Mamma. I want to make certain that the path to God is illuminated and not covered in ash.

          • Yo Mamma

            Oh yes, your christian bible? The one book that contains the sacred stolen text of the Hebrew Priests? That book?

          • SickOf BeingCoddled

            tsk tsk yo mama!! LOL the reason to follow a GOD is to make you better able to be like him. he tells us to be kind and love. HE will do the condemning and punishment if HE sees it is necessary. Use your religion as a mirror to examine your own image , not as a window through which you gawk out of and point fingers at the faults of those who pass by.

          • Yo Mamma

            Some people are chosen, you are not.

            Some people have God Creator as a partner. You have not

          • Lisa_Belise

            And your brazen violation of God’s words will cull you from among the “chosen ones” and you will be cut off from among His people. Numbers 15:30

            The God Creator will be no partner of yours, whether you were “chosen” or not.

          • Yo Mamma

            So you speak presumptuously for God Creator?

          • Virginia Woodard

            I WAS CHOSEN -RIDING DOWN A HIGHWAY IN FLORIDA ALL ALONE- AND FOUND MYSELF IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD! I HAD TO PULL OFF THE ROAD AND WEPT FOR GOD’S FORGIVENESS-WHEN I WAS ABLE TO STOP CRYING, I WENT TO BARNES AND NOBLE TO BUY A BIBLE-THAT WAS IN 2005 THAT BIBLE IS VERY WORN TODAY!

          • Yo Mamma

            What was it? Too much fresh air? The magic mushrooms? Seriously, there is a process. You’re not a barbarian. You know how to read. And you clearly have some comprehension skills. But I am happy for you that you’re happy and when you eventually pass on, please remember to have a smile on your face

            The punishment God Creator dishes out is not usually singular. It usually happens in volumes, and to others and things we humans hold dear. So it can be indirect but obviously visual, meant to threaten and change the minds of the most stubborn ingrates

            Keep smiling

          • Virginia Woodard

            SICK-WE MUST NOT FOLLOW A god BUT THE GOD! THERE IS BUT ONE! JESUS SAID, “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE” JESUS CHRIST WAS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD THE FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT-HUMANS HAVE NO RIGHT TO JUDGE BUT ARE TO SPEAK TRUTH

          • Yo Mamma

            Seriously? You still pushing this failed religion? So 70ad of you

          • Elena

            A wise man once said: “It’s not that Christianity has been tried and failed. It’s that Christianity hasn’t really been tried.”

            Islam is an utter disaster and failure. It separates humanity fm the one true God by supplying humans with extended rules and things to do. It’s a poor substitute for a relationship w/YHVH/Jesus/Holy Spirit — One God, now and forever.

            Islam’s “god” despises humanity. Just read the koran to see that is true.

          • Yo Mamma

            Yeah well your christianity has run its course. You either bend or break sweety

          • tonybigs

            God is a living, eternal god. The only course that is “run” is our own.

          • Virginia Woodard

            JOB IS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT- SATAN IS REFERRED TO AS LUCIFER IN ISAIAH 14:12 IT IS BEST TO READ THE WHOLE BIBLE YOURSELF AND NOT DEPEND ON OTHERS! IF YOU TRULY SEEK TRUTH, GOD WILL REVEAL IT WHEN YOU READ HIS WORD BELIEVING!

          • Yo Mamma

            You are so silly. I never refer to the old anything or the prophets or the writings. never. but you do. because ur confused

            Many have claimed to be the ‘messenger’ in the past, none have been. None. Its
            God Creator that chooses the messenger and its God Creator that works as a
            partner with the messenger to convey the message.

            Keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds. Many have claimed to be the ‘messenger’
            in the past, no have been. None. Its God Creator that chooses the messenger and
            its God Creator that works as a partner with the messenger to convey the
            message.

          • Elena

            That is what I said. The Hebrew word “satan” means adversary. When the article “ha-” is placed in front of it, it becomes what we translate into English as “Satan” with the capital letter (Hebrew has no such distinction). Ha-satan is a title while Lucifer is a proper name. The Scripture makes clear that ha-Satan and Lucifer are the same entity and also closely associated to the tempter in the Garden of Eden (the serpent) as well as clearly identified as the tempter in the NT.

            The muslim “Yo Mamma” was denying the presence of ha-Satan-Lucifer-the tempter in the Torah or OT at large.

          • tonybigs

            The serpent would try to deny the existence of the serpent in Genesis…

          • Yo Mamma

            Evil is evil

            Evil is mentioned in Genesis. A bad god is not.

            Creating new gods, a loving one and a bad one, is what Christians did

          • tonybigs

            “Bad God” is a figment of your imagination. The serpent is the lowest of the low. Shame on you.

          • Yo Mamma

            To consider God Creator’s creation low, the snake, is terrible.

            God Creator did not want to destroy all animals again after the flood, but mankind remained a problem child

            I guess you don’t care for dust either?

            But its what you were and what you will be

            Go hug some dust

            Soon you will be it

          • tonybigs

            The serpent is lower than the dust. It knows nothing of the Truth because there is no Truth in it. The serpent deceives others to hug dust. Embrace God.

          • Yo Mamma

            I guess you don’t like snakes

            I prefer snakes to humans

            God Creator didn’t create all those laws for snakes, but Humans because humans need laws to stay inline

          • tonybigs

            I am sad for those who do not know God through no fault of their own, perhaps God will reveal Truth to them.

          • Yo Mamma

            “God will reveal Truth to them.”

            Yes

            Through a messenger

            lol

            The punishment you can look forward to directly from God Creator

            That part you will feel extremely close, but not in a huggy kissy way

          • Virginia Woodard

            THE MESSENGER WAS HIS OWN SON, JESUS, THE CHRIST! ALL WE DO TO INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD IS TO BELIEVE IN THE GIFT HE SENT THROUGH HIS OWN SON-THE GIFT-MY SINS PAID FOR THROUGH HOLY BLOOD-THAT ID JESUS” BLOOD! BLOOD SACRIFICES OF ANIMALS WERE USED BY JEWS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT-BUT GOD SENT PURE-HOLY BLOOD BY HIS OWN SON-SHED FOR THE REDEMPTION OF ALL WHO BELIEVR1

          • Yo Mamma

            Those that do not heed the word of God Creator will be REQUIRED to. And you
            know that any human interaction with God Creator and a forced situation is not
            pleasant. Its IN YOUR FACE, very public and destructive. Thats all you need
            worry about. Keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds. Many have claimed to
            be the ‘messenger’ in the past, none have been. None. Its God Creator that
            chooses the messenger and its God Creator that works as a partner with the
            messenger to convey the message.

            The messenger also speaks the word of God Creator, as God Creator does and as Moses did. This is the word of Torah and only the Hebrew Priest has this authority.

          • Virginia Woodard

            PUNISHMENT FOR UNBELIEF IS CLEARLY REVEALED IN THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST CHAPTER 20 VERSES 11-14!

          • Yo Mamma

            What does it say about it in Torah.? oh wise one enlighten me

            Its that section in front of your bible that is the stolen inheritance of the Hebrew Priest

            Can you quote it?

            No you can’t

            Because Torah was never placed in FRONT to make you obey it, but rather to defile it, to disobey it and to laugh at the face of God Creator

            But there is not laughing in the eyes of the tragedy

          • tonybigs

            But there is a lack of patience.

          • Yo Mamma

            Oh yes and tolerance

            No tolerance what so ever

            “Behold I have given you every herb yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth”

            yeah man cool

          • Virginia Woodard

            HE HAS GIVEN US ALL TRUTH THROUGH SCRIPTURE BUT ONE MUST READ IT AND PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING!

          • Yo Mamma

            You have zero understanding of Torah.

            This is because the BLOOD that flows in your veins is not worthy of interpreting it.

            That is why you have no inheritance of it.

            That is why you do not obey it

            That is why you need rid yourselves of it

            Quickly

          • tonybigs

            Some people do not not read and/or never have seen The Holy Bible through no fault of their own. It might be our fault but not theirs.

          • Elena

            Read Romans first few chapters in which Paul assures us that God has indeed revealed Himself even without the Scriptures.

          • tonybigs

            Absolutely. One need look no further than Simon Bar-Jonah.

          • Virginia Woodard

            ABSOLUTELY TRUE

          • Yo Mamma

            Then you don’t like dust either.

            because the dust of the snake is no different than the dust of the human

            and you will become the dust

            you have a hindrance in accepting your fate

          • Virginia Woodard

            GOD IS GOOD AND MANKIND IS EVIL CONTINUALLY, DAY AND NIGHT! THE ONLY WAY GOD CAN SEE ANY PERSON AS GOOD IS IF THEY BELIEVE AND TRUST HIM AND HIS SON’S SACRIFICE FOR US ON THE CROSS! GOD LOVES YOU BUT YOU MUST BELIEVE HIM!

          • Yo Mamma

            God Creator never partnered with your man god. Instead God Creator killed him because he ministered to the Israelite’s and he asked them to follow him and not God Creator. He was an abomination and deserved to die. This fact confused him up to his last minutes. Just as ur confused now, I do not want to further the conversation lest you think it scary

            I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee; and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 18,19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto My words which he shall speak in My name, I will require it of him.

            oooooh, scary stuff God Creator, what you’re gonna do to those that do not heed? An earth quake? Tsunami? Split open the earth? We all want to see them go down, then we will be terrified and will obey and heed. We need scary things to happen so we do not follow other gods and love only YOU.

            Joshua was not a LEVITE. He was not a Priest. He could not speak the word of God Creator. Only Moses and the Hebrew Priest can and could. Anyone that suggests that this paragraph is referring to Joshua is a RE _ TARD (ELENA). Joshua was from the tribe of Ephraim. Only Levites from the line of Aaron can minister to the people.

            ‘….he shall speak in My name’ ~ This means the person must minister to the people, which means he needs to be of the Levite line. All others are forbidden to minister Torah. Its the inheritance of the Levite Priests for all eternity. The vatican is put on notice

            Joshua was nothing more than a military man. He was around when God Creator and Moses talked. The paragraph refers to the distant future, not the present time

          • Elena

            That passage refers initially to Joshua as Moses’ successor. It can also refer to Jesus, on whom all the sin of humanity was laid. God the Creator raised Jesus fm the dead to prove to folks like you that He is Love (agape – self-sacrificing love).

          • Yo Mamma

            There you go with Joshua, the military leader, ho hum

          • Virginia Woodard

            NOT CREATE CHRISTIANS DID NOT CREATE CHRIST JESUS! GOD THE FATHER GAVE JESUS, HIS OWN SON, TO ME AND TO YOU AS A SACRIFICE FOR SIN! WE ALL SIN AND SIN CALLS FOR A PENALTY-HELL! YET, GOD LOVED US SO MUCH, HE SENT HIS SON TO SUFFER FOR OUR (MY) SINS! IF WE BELIEVE GOD’S GIFT IS TRUE, WE ARE FORGIVEN OF ALL OUR SINS!

          • Yo Mamma

            Please tell me where you can find reference to a ‘hell’ in Torah, the stolen sacred writings of Moses located at the very front of your christian bible that resides next to you bed.

            Please tell me chapter and verse

            ladies, she cannot
            because a grumpy snake is no such animal

            Tonybigs says this “Genesis. Being cast out of the Garden.”

            Bigs baby, evil is one thing, bad behavior is another, but none equate to a nasty place after one dies. Please do not fret about it, all suffering happens in LIFE and not death.

            Whats so frustrating is seeing nasty haters of God Creator continue living year after year and not suffering in life, so thats where your faith kicks in

          • Elena

            Try the book of Numbers — ch 30 and 31. The Hebrew word is Sheol, which can be translated as hades or hell.

          • Yo Mamma

            Your opinion of Torah is worth less than that of the maggots that feast of a donkeys excrement. You’re a silly little girl that is playing with fire

            I want to see you tomorrow, just to make sure God Creator has not visited you

            And you still have that stolen copy of Torah in your hands? You are a thief Elena and a perverter of the truth

          • tonybigs

            Genesis. Being cast out of the Garden.

          • Yo Mamma

            dope head. try concentrate

            christians believe in a hell AFTER death

            no where in Torah is punishment in death

            bing bing bing

            in Torah is punishment in LIFE

            in life , cool yeah

          • tonybigs

            You’re proceeding from a lie and it obscures all you write. In the Torah the punishment is death amongst other things.

          • Ken

            Christian invention? Obviously you should read up on the Torah to overcome your ignorance. How do you explain the fact that Satan is mentioned many times – the snake in the garden (Torah – Bereishith), the fallen angel Lucifer (Nevi’im – Isaiah), the visits of Satan to G-d in Iyov (Job), G-d rebuking Satan in Zechariah (Zekharyah), etc. Turn to G-d. Time is running out.

          • Glennfriend67

            Ken, I like the fact that he thinks Satan is “an invention.” Well……I guess the LORD invented him, right? (chuckle) Shalom, Ken.

          • mag

            Please read Who Is Satan http://outreachjudaism.org/who-is-satan/ and near the end you will find there is no such lucifer mentioned in the Torah in Isaiah or any where else. That’s why Jews don’t believe in lucifer.

            I’ve not read much of the torah, But it would supprise me if the devil is not mentioned because the torah contains the frist 5 books of the old testament

          • elizabethregister .

            Yo wrong mamma. The devil is very real!

          • Yo Mamma

            In your head only and thats a safe place

          • Virginia Woodard

            SATAN IS VERY REAL! JUST LOOK AT THE WORLD AROUND US!

        • shimdo

          And trying to destroy and take as many with him to hell as he can. He knows he’s time is short.

      • tonybigs

        You support hypocrisy. You feed on hypocrisy. Without hypocrisy you have nothing.

        • Yo Mamma

          Spelling problem???

          • tonybigs

            Yes, and it’s been corrected.

          • Lisa_Belise

            At least Tonybigs can correct his spelling easily.

      • Glennfriend67

        What a pity Glenn’s message meant absolutely nothing to you. When you speak in such a dismissive and offensive manner of a peaceful faith(yes, Catholicism has a bit of a chequered past but so do all faiths- the faith is perfect; the people are far from it- you display your ignorance and intolerance for everyone to see, which makes you the real problem. People tend to keep their distance from a person who is hateful and intolerant of others. They realize that venom could be turned on them at any moment. And no, Satan is not a Christian “invention.” Just by stating that tells me that Satan has quite a strong hold on you, Satan’ greatest trick has always been to convince the world he doesn’t exist. That’s why this world, this COUNTRY is in the shape it’s in-because people don’t believe in Satan any longer. They think there won’t be any consequences for their actions. They certainly no longer believe God is watching over them, watching them destroy their and others’ lives. I hope I’ve given you something to seriously think about.

        • shimdo

          wow, give it to them

        • Daniel Brofford

          You are absolutely right. Hopefully he will see the light and get right with God before it’s to late. There is a devil and a hell and if you are not right with God when you die you will not beable to deny where you are at

          • Yo Mamma

            You go with your 2 gods. Have fun now

        • Yo Mamma

          Do you know that the Catholic Vatican STILL hold in captivity, for now 2000 years, the sacred furnishings of the Temple?

          That makes them thieves

          Or redeem your evil soul and render them to the Hebrew people

          • Lisa_Belise

            You are bearing false witness.

            http://www.aish.com/jw/s/The-Vatican-and-the-Temple-Vessels.html

            Didn’t you post previously that an “evil soul” who is not “chosen” cannot be redeemed?

          • Yo Mamma

            Go away heathen – No point in trying to educate you

          • Cavy4Freedom

            no…not thieves they preserve the antiquities…if they did not they would be lost forever…

          • Glennfriend67

            Correct. They were never stolen, either. They were given to the Church by wealthy benefactors. Some of them were sent to the Vatican in times of war for protection. If it weren’t for the Vatican, some of the most priceless treasure in the world would have been destroyed by malignants like Hitler,Mussolini, Stalin. After the wars, most were repatriated to their respective countries. Any article that could not be returned was left in the Vatican’s care and is now on display at the Vatican Museum. The Vatican is dedicated to preserving our history, not stealing things it does not need. The Church itself has never had the money to build the lovely cathedrals and basilicas you see scattered across Europe. That was all accomplished by the patronage of wealthy families. None of those glamorous robes they wear belong to the pope, cardinals, bishops and priests. They are donated by wealthy parishioners. When it is time for a priest to move on to his next assignment, he does not take all those robrs with him; they’re not his. They are for the use of the next priest. This is true all the way up to the Pope. A priest earns a very small yearly stipend to take care of personal business with. You would scoff at the amount. Again, this is true all the way up to the Pope. So, as they say, appearances are deceiving. The Church is an honorable, humble, honest estate.

          • Yo Mamma

            The vatican has been put on notice

          • Yo Mamma

            Its not theirs to preserve

            They have stolen property

            They MUST give all these back to the Hebrew people

            Yes, they have kept them safe from destruction in 2000 years

            For that I am grateful

            But now, to continue to hold, is nothing short of theft

        • Cavy4Freedom

          but some like to pass on untruths…no matter…praying helps…do not turn your mind to evil…

        • Yo Mamma

          “a bit of a chequered past” you are seriously a joke. Its probably THE most destructive force known to mankind. “a bit of a chequered past” indeed

      • shimdo

        There is NO RELIGION in them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Katherine

        let us take “religion” out of this picture for a fraction of a second … how could anyone support ISIS? Murdering, torturing, raping and executing other human beings is just WRONG not matter what their reasoning is. People are not born to hate – they are taught to … very sad. What ever happened to “live and let live”? … to be content in and with your own life, and loving your family??

      • InfidelNumberOne

        Hey Yo, the Catholics are not “supporting those that break the law”. They are living the beatitudes as Jesus instructed.

        I am 100% against any illegal border jumping or any form of amnesty. But we must yield to the human component until they are repatriated; as soon as possible. In the mean time we cannot simply kick humans to the curb to become road kill.

        • Cavy4Freedom

          the Catholic church is going to be different because of pope’s view of freedom…he has come from a country that was smashed by Peron’s and generals who hurt them…but I do not think he knows what we American’s do for the church…he is a Jesuit…they live in poverty….not a bad thing but to some it is…but it makes life simple to live…stuff is hard to keep up with…we all know that…we have extremes here with illnesses of hording and homes that are so full of stuff but I won’t venture there on here…sad…we cannot discuss things without harming others…Glenn is trying … it is difficult…anything worth while is always difficult…that is why Catholic faith teaches us about the saints and what they did to live a good life…I ponder why and how would we do back in their era’s … no electricity, cars, or supermarkets…

          • tonybigs

            After the initial shock, I think some of us would do reasonably well. Some are old enough to have lived in a different world. It wasn’t too long ago there were no personal computers, cell phones, “social media” and cable TV. A bit further back and there was no TV and the “wireless” was the technology of the age. The Great Depression-era parents are a blessing many younger people have never experienced.

          • Yo Mamma

            You can change an old unpopular design of the roof, but that dargone foundation stays put. Tsk tsk

    • CabinetGuy

      Everybody give Yo Mamma a break. He is obviously a frustrated out of work doctor because he told Elana that he doesn’t have the patients.

  • ken.

    violence is coming against us no matter what we do or don’t do. the leftists have to attack us in order to finish destroying america and freedom. first we will be attacked, then after that will come the revolution. either we defend what is right against evil or we bow before evil.

    Universalist twaddle, with an ecumenical nod to atheism.Beck doesn’t know *what* he believes.

    • kathleen_smith121

      I BELEIVE THAT HE WAS RAISED AS CATHOLIC, DIDN’T PRACTICE IT AS AN ADULT, THEN TURNED HIS BACK ON IT FOR HIS SECOND WIFE. SO SAYING THAT THE CATHOLIC RELIGION IS “VERY DIFFERENT FROM US’ WAS BALONEY!!!!

      • Type 53

        Beck is a Mormon-of-convenience. His wife-to-be insisted that he “chose a religion” in order to marry and sleep with her. He could have as easily ‘chosen’ Hinduism or Scientology.Why anyone takes his grade-school level musings on ‘theology’ seriously is beyond me.

        • palintologist

          I believe his wife (and Pat Gray) were also raised Catholic and switched to Mormon. I’d love to know what happened with all three.

    Joel Osteen? Really?

    2 Timothy 4:

    2 preach the Word; be instant in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    3 For
    the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having
    itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with
    their own lusts.

    4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned toward fables.

    • MikeR

      If that’s the word of God, that dude sure talks funny.

      • Its me, Bruce

        What dude? The Apostle Paul, author of the epistles to Timothy? It makes perfect sense to me. And, we are watching this simple truth unfold before our eyes.

    • shimdo

      I am no fan of Osteen. I think is a modern day falsey, but that’s me.

      • SickOf BeingCoddled

        and he may be, but he is also a man of love and service and don’t we all have some bad parts. GOD is to take care of all of it. We just need to do our part of loving and caring and serving.

    • SickOf BeingCoddled

      the doctrine of LOVE THY NEIGHBOR and leave judgement and vengence to the LORD is taught by Latter day Saints, Catholics, Jews, Protestants, and even the Hindus and Budahs preach love. Why are so many of us caught up in WHO we got our faith and desire to serve from– God will sort out the RELIGION thing if needed , in the mean time we need to love and work and pray and act responsibly as an individual and leave the other guys life for him to live.

    • Yo Mamma

      What ever happened to give the money to the poor? Is he just poor himself or holding back – This is very strange for a christian to have so much money and gold. I have never seen or heard of such hypocrisy. Is this something new?

  • http://www.queremossalud.com/ Eric Waldron

    If you guys hate Beck so much, why do you watch his stuff? lol The guy does his homework and is usually pinpoint with everything he says! Face the facts!

    • BlueMN

      Beck torturously twisting history or current events in order to make it fit into his dogma is neither homework, pinpoint nor factual.

      • Julie Morris

        @disqus_kGNUfuh9O7:disqus – YOUR twisting history and current events in order to make it fit YOUR dogma isn’t either. Get on board with the message….SERVE OTHERS….don’t worry about the messenger. He’ll have to answer to God as well.

        • Yo Mamma

          “He’ll have to answer to God as well.”

          You going to make sure of that?

          Thats called ‘using the lords name in VAIN’

          Yes sir!

          You just broke one of those pesky commandments

          • linb0315

            You’re sad.

          • Yo Mamma

            Go to bed

            Sad but right

            God Creator is sad too. Quite an angry God. SO yes, quite sad

            Not like the happy go lucky Jesuits

          • Elena

            Using YHVH’s name in vain is to say you belong to Him and Him alone and live as if you belong to the Satan.

            When you swear to tell the truth in His Name, and you lie, you have taken His Name in vain.

            Using uneven weights and swearing they are true is taking His Name in vain.

            His Name is YHVH, not God. God is a title not a name.

          • Yo Mamma

            This is your interpretation. You are not qualified. You corrupt people.

            And NOWHERE in Torah does God Creator say God Creator is a MAN

            yet you say HIM he him he him he – you very bad u know

          • Elena

            I use the common gendered pronouns used by the Hebrew Bible. There are feminine images of YHVH in the Prophets, but in the Torah YHVH is presented as “He.”

            Hebrew has no neuter gender, so you have only the two choices.

            The Shekinah is feminine and is the Glory which moves Israel thru the wilderness out of Egypt and to the Promised Land.

            God is beyond gender, but we are not. We cannot imagine a sentient Being that has no gender. Thus YHVH allows us to use gendered pronouns to describe our relationship with Him.

            Torah states that God created man — male and female in the image of God. Genesis 1:27.

          • Yo Mamma

            Yes your last sentence still confused you. If God Creator wanted to be known as a MAN, this would have been said many times in Torah – IT IS NOT

          • Elena

            YHVH is NOT a man; He is God Almighty.

            Language, all of them, lack the ability to describe One who is so wholly Other that we are left w/the afterglow to describe. No one can see the “face” of YHVH and live. Moses saw His afterglow. As a result, Moses also glowed, causing fear in the hearts of his fellow Israelites. So much so, he covered his face fm them, and he removed the veil before YHVH.

          • Yo Mamma

            Torah, it was your inheritance? It says so in Torah whose it is. It says its yours?

            No its not. You are not a Hebrew Priest. You have a copy of it and for that YOU ARE A THIEF.

            Torah is the inheritance of the Hebrews, those that follow Literal Torah. If you have a copy of the sacred text, not only is it dangerous, its illegal

            SO sayeth God Creator, and inheritance of the bloodline of Aaron

          • Elena

            Torah is for all humanity — Israel is the Light to enlighten the gentiles.

            Nowhere in the Torah does it say Torah is only for Aaron’s line. The priesthood in the Temple is theirs.

          • Lisa_Belise

            NOWHERE in the Torah does God Creator say that God Creator is NOT male.

            Either way, you continue to bear false witness against Elena. You judge her without qualification-you have no authority over her.
            You judge her to be corrupting people, when judgement of a person’s heart is reserved for God Creator-NOT YOU.
            You CLEARLY need to read and re-read Mishna 6 over and over again.

          • Yo Mamma

            Yes, some are born to Judge and make assumptions and to interpret Torah

            You do not have such qualifications

            You will NEVER have such qualifications

            All you need do is watch for the signs of destruction

            You then say to yourself

            I was told the truth, the word of God Creator, but I chose not to heed to it, now I face destruction of my own making.

            Be happy :-)

          • Lisa_Belise

            Are you saying that Glenn Beck is going to escape answering to God? Oh please tell me how anyone gets away with NOT answering to the “God Creator”???

          • Yo Mamma

            If I was God Creator I would know

            But I am not

            So heathen, go away and remain a Hater of God Creator

      • jalina susan stutte

        BlueMN go back to your cave. Beck has been right on target for years now and has encouraged us to search for ourselves, think for ourselves, something you fail at I see.

      • Bill McClure

        perhaps doing YOUR homework before you spout a blatant lie would help?

    • yourpaled

      To you he might be telling the truth, but listen closely, and Beck is turning into a believer in netherland. I remember when he did speak the truth on matters staring right in your face. Now, he just loves everybody around him and even the worst enemies are good people. Hmmm. And how about all those other preachers? Have you seen how they live with their millions?

      • Maugaoali’i Pele

        God is the judge of all things!! We need to clean our own houses, before we condemn others….Glenn is doing his thing, whether we like it or not…I like it. We are nothing but a nobody, , unless we have the love of God in our hearts. Amen!!

        • Glennfriend67

          Well, said, Pele. He is following God’s two most important commandments: to love God with all his mind, heart and soul. and to love his neighbor as himself. Those are the two most important commandments of all!

        • shimdo

          Thank you for that statement

      • nancyb56

        So you don’t care for him anymore because he doesn’t want to spew hatred for everyone that does not agree with him. Maybe you want to do that but not everyone does. If you don’t like him then don’t listen and why come on these sites?

        • ken.

          glenn never spewed hatred, he always told the truth. now he just wants everyone to hold hands and sing kumbaya while the leftists are preparing tiring violence against us. the truth will set you free.

          • linb0315

            Glenn can’t take on the world or the government – but he’s encouraging people to be better and more loving. It’s positive and it’s heartwarming – better than all the garbage we get stuffed down our throats daily in the news and on TV.

          • NOLIKEO

            No he can’t, but he’s certainly trying:-)

      • Bill McClure

        If that makes him a “believer in netherland” I am too…..and we could all benefit from his example.

        • shimdo

          amen and amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God is using him

      • Joan Bearden

        Glenn has never “hated” anybody. He is just trying to get people to quit talking about a revolution and start talking to each other. He still feels the same way has always felt about what the “Demwits” and RINOs are doing. That will never change. What he hates are the agendas/policies from both parties. What is going on in our country today is wrong and he is trying to get people to see that. So many people, like Obama, are trying to keep us divided by race, class, etc. and that is wrong. There is no sin in any one being wealthy, but the “Demwits” seem to have a problem with capitalism and anyone being successful.

        • Octoberfurst

          I hate to break this to you but Jesus has some very strong words about the rich. Remember the “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter heaven”? Yeah he wasn’t too fond of the rich. Just sayin’.

          • Wolf-Spider

            It’s about where you place your heart. Both David and Solomon were both EXTREMELY rich. David was called “A man after God’s own heart,” even though he did SO MANY things wrong. God granted them their wealth. Think about that.

          • Octoberfurst

            Hey I’m just quoting Jesus. You can disagree with him all you want but it doesn’t change what he said. And yes Solomon was rich. Solomon also had 900 wives and concubines. Are you saying that God would be cool with someone having multiple wives? So be careful what examples you pick.

          • Lisa_Belise

            1 Samuel 2:7 Yahweh makes poor, and makes rich. He brings low, he also lifts up.

            Obviously you are unfamiliar with the Bible as many of God’s prophets had multiple wives.

            Abijah, Abraham (four wives are responsible for producing the 10 tribes of Israel-with Joseph’s sons being the other 2=12) Ahab, Ashur, ,Caleb, David (King…many of his wives were “given to him by God”), Solomon, Elkanah, Esau, Ezra…

            God made the descendants of Israel His chosen people. Looks like he was “cool” with Jacob having several wives.
            David only lost favor with God when he lusted after a woman who was married to someone else, and he had her husband killed.
            Solomon lost favor with God because his wives led him to worship other Gods.

            Be careful what YOU think God is cool or not cool with.

          • Joan Bearden

            Jesus loved everybody; He hated the sin. Like I said it is no sin to be wealthy, it’s how you deal with it that is the problem. If you make money your god, then there’s where the problem is. That’s why He said what He did about the “eye of the needle”. You can be wealthy and be a Christian, too.

          • Octoberfurst

            I think it is hard to be very wealthy and a Christian. People who are very rich get absorbed into the high-class lifestyle. It becomes a trap. They often become greedy and want more and more. And please point out where Jesus said it was ok to be rich and to hoard wealth.

          • Joan Bearden

            I never said that Jesus said it was ok to hoard money. He said we are to tithe a tenth of what we make and to help the poor, elderly and needy. If someone doesn’t live by that command then, that is between them and God. He will deal with those who He knows is not living the Christian life. It’s not for us to judge anyone just because they are wealthy. Like I said when that lifestyle is your god, then there is where God will deal with you in His good time. Judgement Day will take care of that. This type of attitude is part of what is causing problems today. People think the rich are evil and granted there are those types of people, but not everybody is that way. Like I said, it is not a sin to be rich, but it is when money and “stuff” becomes your god. Personally, I never had a poor person give me a job. I am thankful that there are wealthy people to provide jobs for people and help the less fortunate. I do not begrudge anyone being rich, but apparently, you don’t want anybody to be rich. Jealousy and envy are just as much of a sin as making money and material things your god. So don’t be so critical of those who are blessed to be wealthy.

          • Octoberfurst

            Yes there are good rich people and bad rich people. I was just saying that it is very hard to be both rich and a follower of Jesus. Personally I feel that you can be wealthy but it can easily be a path towards greed & selfishness. I have never had a poor person give me a job either. But on the other hand I have never had a poor person send my job overseas, cut my pay or screw with my benefits. That’s the flip side of the coin. As for being critical of those who are “blessed” to be wealthy I look at HOW they got wealthy. If you pulled yourself up by your bootstraps, worked hard and did well–fine. But if you are wealthy because daddy made big bucks and you inherited it like Paris Hilton and the Koch brothers then I don’t need to feel that you earned it. And why is it that so many conservatives are so eager to lionize rich people while demonizing poor people? That’s just the opposite of what the Bible does.

          • Lisa_Belise

            It is very hard to be poor and a follower of Jesus if you spend your life coveting “things” and “money” that is not yours. Greed and selfishness are not characteristics reserved only for the rich.

            Please tell me where the Bible states that we should be eager to lionize the poor while demonizing the rich?

            Leviticus 19:15-
            “‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.”

            Both the rich and the poor were created by God, and justice is to be applied without favoritism in either direction.

            You pass judgement upon those who inherit the riches and blessings created by others (such as Paris Hilton) but surely you wish to inherit the Kingdom of God and it’s riches and blessings yourself….and none who look upon you will feel that you earned any of it yourself. :)

          • Daniel Brofford

            It is the love of money that is the root of all evil. In matthew 19:23 Jesus said that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God and that it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God but in matthew 19:26 when asked by his disciples about that saying Jesus says but with God all things are possible so just because you have money doesn’t mean you are not going to heaven. Most people with a lot of money though think that they have everything they need without God. I never did understand why people with money some how think they are better than other people because when we all lay down in that box it does not matter if it is pine or made out of gold none of us takes anything with us and we are going to one of two places heaven or hell

          • SickOf BeingCoddled

            this is such a general statement. It is hard to be generous when you have been taught selfishness. it is hard to love when you have been taught to hate. it is our mind and spirit and upbringing that determine our way to relate to our fellow beings. And that is an ever evolving feature of being human and a child of god

          • shimdo

            Well said, Joan

            OR maybe his caution that those who are Rich have a bigger challenge to stay generous and humble. it is not the bags of gold that will keep you out of the Kingdom of God it is how you treated the people around you. Same criteria as all of us have. greater wealth has greater responsibility and the fact that it is human nature to say MINE about what we have earned or been given, makes it a little more of a challenge when it is a lot. with out wealth how can you help others who lack wealth? Many ways !! and wealth is one of them. He also promises in scripture that those who follow him will PROSPER! taking one line and using one interpretation for it is not a full picture of what the Bible or Torah or Book of Mormon teaches.

          • Lisa_Belise

            Jesus had no complaints about any who were rich. Only those who loved their riches more than they loved Him. He was just as condemning of those who envy and covet things that belong to others.

      • shimdo

        yea and that’s one of my erks. Jesus was not like that

      • Lisa_Belise

        There is a difference between loving all people, and declaring “the worst enemies” to be good people. You can love the sinner while hating the sin. Please show me where Glenn Beck has declared that truly bad people are good people. Or were you just giving your opinion on what you assume Glenn is thinking?

    • Shirley Clipner Pitts.

      Amen brother.

    • shimdo

      Never said I didn’t like Glenn. I respect he’s opinion and I feel like God’s using him. I don’t agree with the morman faith. Most of them don’t respect others either

  • T Time T Time

    I love you Glenn.

  • Tom Musso

    Nice going Glenn. This gives me hope for a better tomorrow. There a lot of good folks in this country doing great things, including you. Thanks!

  • brucesat

    “Service to our fellow man IS service to God.” I would go one step further and say that we should serve life on this planet in all its forms. If we serve men, but kill off everything else, will we have served god who created life on earth? From this understanding of the sanctity of life and the community of life that we life among comes a moral understanding of how we should be. Once we set ourselves above and outside of the rest of the life community did our moral compass go screwy.

  • Moozmom

    Glenn reminds us that “the greatest of these is love”.
    Thank you.

  • tonybigs

    Always be a servant and expect nothing.

  • Lawrencemn

    Do we support freedom of religion…all religions or not?

    • NOLIKEO

      Whatever Glenn says is what thou shalt do.

  • Gayle P Higgins

    Glenn, thank you for sharing your spirit with us and for being open about what you see. Our family has been discussing these things and are grateful for all you have done and sacrificed. NOW is the time for us all to come together, regardless of our affiliations – there can be no more procrastinating it or sticking our heads in the sand. God bless you and your family in all that lies ahead and thanks, again, for all you do!

  • Mark Roth

    Glenn, interesting words. As an American, I agree that those of us who believe in the Almighty, but chose to worship him in any number of different ways, must come together. We have had almost 240 years of being able to debate freely the merits of one belief over another, and I, like you, believe mine is correct. Today we face two the removal of what Alexis de Tocqueville said made America great, that being the goodness of Americans (founded in their ability to have a personal relationship with the Savior and worship Him however what they saw fit). We as a people have lost the significance of ownership of our faith.
    This noted, you are right on target noting our way to serve is by serving others. Galatians 5:14 (NIV) – For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Imagine what could be accomplished if we did everything based on what good does that action do for someone else? WOW!

    • not a liberal

      Mr.Roth, very well said – God Bless.

    • Yo Mamma

      Just to set the record straight, God Creator is not a HIM

      • Elena

        Well Creator God, YHVH, is hardly an “it.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/twayneking Tom King

    God will find his children wherever they are. I do not believe there is an angel standing at the Pearly Gates like some sort of bouncer kicking out people who guessed wrong on their theology. I believe that the closer we get to God, the more alike we will all be in our beliefs. When we meet Him we will all go, “Oh. That makes sense. I see it now.” We see now through a glass darkly, but then, Face to Face. I think God would rather we work on obeying the Golden Rule than on memorizing our cachetisms, prayer books or our pastor’s latest best-seller and trying to correct other people’s theology. Any theology that doesn’t reveal God as a God of pure love, will be cast by the wayside, the better we come to know Him in our daily lives.

    • Syndog

      An inspiring post, Tom. In fact, I’m writing down your words and putting your name beside them for future reference. Thanks for sharing, and God Bless.

    • Its me, Bruce

      Correct! HE knows His children and His Word (the same one you just quoted) says …
      John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

      I like Glenn Beck, a lot, but there is no Universal salvation, and doing good works, while awesome, is not salvation.

  • billbro

    The vitriol expressed here accomplishes nothing and isn’t helpful (or harmful to anyone other than the writer). We seldom get what we want, but we always get what we deserve.

  • efroeh966

    Don’t we need all the love and service we can get, from anywhere? If you feel the need to rip Beck or Osteen or anyone genuinely trying to do some good out there, your heart has grown cold, and you need to look in the mirror. Btw, have you ever actually SEEN Osteen for 30 minutes on a Sunday morning? If not, you should try it, and then tell me how he is deserving of your disdain. Be the change you want. There are givers and takers…the takers eat better, the givers sleep better…which one are u?

    • NOLIKEO

      I don’t care for his hair, but he’s certainly got a lot of fans and a gorgeous wife.

  • amilliman

    Different churches are like different languages; at the root, all saying the same thing. Actions are proof of God. Glenn and his family (wife and kids and staff)
    daily show us what loving God looks like.

    • mompatriot

      But it is still ALL about Jesus, the true gospel.

    • Yo Mamma

      But your god is not the same as the Muslim god?

      • old_broad

        did you just figure that out? Our God is a God of peace and love, and the Muslim god is a god of?

        • Yo Mamma

          Then why so many christian wars? Did you get misled?

          Maybe?

          • old_broad

            please clarify. your comment is too big to answer

          • Yo Mamma

            yeah too many christian wars

            wars of love i guess

          • Elena

            Too many Christians not following Jesus’ example making war upon their neighbor.

            Muslims following Mohammad make war on their neighbor because Allah wills war to be make upon the non-muslim neighbor.

            Jesus is a God who loves.

            Allah is a god who hates, much more like the Satan of the OT and NT.

          • Yo Mamma

            Your neighbor is someone with the SAME beliefs. Its ok to kill in wars. again you are confused

          • Elena

            No, your neighbor is the rest of the world, according to Jesus’ teaching.

            Allah is a god of hate.

          • old_broad

            so, rather than clarify, you only want to sound off….

          • Its me, Bruce

            Are you not aware of the ongoing 1400+ year reign of Muslim conquest, raping, killing, enslaving in the name of ALLAH and Mohammed? Do you any have idea what the Crusades were about? Beyond that, what wars are you referring to as ‘Christian’ wars?

          • Elena

            Indeed, the Crusades were a belated response to the slaughter, pillaging, and robbing of Christian pilgrims by muslims.

          • Its me, Bruce

            Whole nations and continents, actually and a plea for help by a conquered domain resulted in the Crusades.

          • Yo Mamma

            There is always a good christian reason for war. So much for turning the other cheek eh elena – hypocrite

          • Elena

            Actually turning the other cheek was abt not repaying insult for insult, not abt lying down and being slaughtered.

            In Jesus’ world, to slap a person on the cheek was an insult. If you turned your cheek to have the other one slapped, the slapper would have to look upon his own palm. This was an insult back at himself. It’s much like the Arab distaste for seeing the soles of your feet — a big insult.

          • DrStone

            I believe you are applying Christ’s instructions that were given for a person to follow and applying them to a government.

            If God is God and He does not change Malachi 3:6 then he not only condones war he has commanded it. But war is function of the government where murder is the act of a person.

  • christine

    Be strong in your faith in God Glen, good things will happen, we will keep praying as you requested.

  • tulsachick

    Christians and Jews are not the same, yet we can love each other. We need to set aside hate and quit focusing on our differences. I am not saying we should all believe the same- I know what I believe and I believe Jesus is the one true way to heaven- but it does not mean I cannot love and respect others. On the contrary- it means I SHOULD love and respect others.

    • http://www.Yahoo.com/?fr=fptb-msgr Determined3

      AMEN

    • Yo Mamma

      “we need to set aside hate” – so of all the religions you choose “Christians and Jews” to love each other???

      What about the Muslims??? Love them too?? You should if you follow the loving words of your god

      • Elena

        Certainly, Christians are called to love those who hate them wince all humankind is made in the image of the Biblical God.

        • Yo Mamma

          Firstly I see no ‘loving’ in all the christian wars in the past and in the present. None.

          Secondly, Mankind is created in the image of all that was created before them. You / me are nothing like God Creator and to consider this is blas – phemous

          • Elena

            So, you are now negating Genesis description of humanity as made in the image of God? That is rather blasphemous of you.

            No, the Christian wars were not loving. I don’t think you could find a Christian who has a living relationship with Jesus who would say it was.

            The only time power can be exercised in war by a Christian is defensively or for the defense of another. War is not to be used as a political weapon by the believer.

          • Yo Mamma

            Once again you try hard to interpret something God Creator gave to PRIESTS to interpret – no wonder you are so confused

          • Elena

            Unlike the koranic language, the Bible is quite clear. An idiot can read it and understand what it is telling you abt how we are to relate to YHVH and how we are to relate to each other.

            You are confused. You might want to try a different translation. If English is your native tongue, try the RSV or the ESV. Both are quite competent translations in more contemporary English than the 1611 KJV.

  • DrStone

    As an elder in my church I get to actually deal with these teachings of “all ya need is love” and there are many ways to God, just be a good person. While others get teach this non-since and not actually deal with the confusion and disorder that it creates. How can a man claim to be providing truth, while saying as long as a religion is not violent then it is of God? That would mean all the different ways to God are all valid, but at the same time contradict each other. That can not be true. Truth is not relative, that is circular logic and should be rejected. It is as valid to say there is no truth (which disproves its self, because if there is no truth then the statement its self can not be truth) as it is to say there are many ways to God.

    Matthew 7:13 ” …for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat”

    Today its very popular to believe in God as “a loving God”, but forget to acknowledge He is also a holy and a righteous God. Yes, God is love, but He is more than JUST love. Be careful who you follow.

    Matthew 7:21-23

    “21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy
    name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many
    wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

    • Type 53

      That would mean all the different ways to God are all valid, but at the same time contradict each other. That is the position that Beck holds, assuming he is serious about this at all. It is universalist, flying in the face of accepted Christian doctrine.
      John 14:6, Acts 4:12

      • DrStone

        I 100% agree with you, except for one thing. It is what the Bible says, not just christian doctrine. All things, even doctrine, must be tested against the Bible before you should accept them.

        • Type 53

          Yes, your point of clarification is correct. ‘Doctrine’ was a sloppy choice of words.

        • mompatriot

          AMEN

      • MikeR

        Glenn Beck is a good and decent man. I’m an atheist. I don’t care what his religion is. This country is a better place with him in it. I wish him and his family a very long and healthy life.

    • MikeR

      Haven’t you noticed that no one speaks that way anymore? You may as well be speaking Swahili.

      • DrStone

        Then we really should toss out all the Shakespeare I guess? Because people are less educated and can’t understand the king’s english does not mean I have to lower my personal vocabulary does it?

    • Yo Mamma

      Why do you, oh knowledgeable one, keep the sacred Torah in front of your Gospels, Prophets and Writings if you do not obey the commandments?

      To avoid the hypocriter label, you should remove it post haste and live your religious life with just the writings you feel are sacred to you

      • DrStone

        I’m guessing you are not familiar with many Christians. I regard the Torah (the Old Testament) with the same level of respect I do the Gospels (the New Testament). All are the Word of God. From the first letter of Genesis 1:1 to the final AMEN in Revelation I believe it all equally and completely.

        I am not sure why you believe that I do not strive to obey the commandments, but I do. Of course we all have fallen short at different times, and I would never claim to be prefect.

        Funny how this all keeps going back to Matthew 7, in verse 1 of the chapter Christ teaches us not to judge another, so I don’t feel the “hypocriter label” was needed.

        I do forgive you for the accusation though, but the post will stand.

        • Elena

          Actually, brother, the Torah is only the 5 books of Moses. The Prophets and Writings form the remainder of the Hebrew Scriptures. It’s call the Tanach, for short (with the “ch” being a rough sound like that of German’s “ch”).

          • Yo Mamma

            Wrong, Prophets and Writings form the remainder of the JEWISH Scriptures.

            the Hebrew only followed LITERAL TORAH

            jews = Torah + Prophets and Writings + TALMUD

          • Elena

            There are two Judaisms that come out of the destruction of the Temple in AD 70.

            Jewish Christianity and Judaism of the Talmuds. I respect the Babylonian Talmud for its sheer beauty and wisdom, but I do not view it as authoritative Scripture in the way I view Torah as Scripture.

            As a Christian, the Jewish people are my people, for I am grafted in.

          • Yo Mamma

            The talmud is a blasphemous document written to corrupt the religion God Creator gave Moses. It adds NEW laws to Torah, forbidden under Torah, therefore its hypocritical

          • Elena

            As I said, I respect the Talmud but do not present it as authoritative for my spiritual relationship w/The Father.

          • Yo Mamma

            Here we go with your ‘authority’

          • Elena

            And with yours.

          • Yo Mamma

            You don’t know mine, I know yours. You have already stated your beliefs

          • Elena

            And you have been beating us abt the head and shoulders with yours.

          • Yo Mamma

            You better hope God Creator doesn’t REQUIRE you. That would be embarrasing

          • Elena

            YHVH requires me to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before Him. This I do, for I love Him with all of me.

          • Yo Mamma

            I don;t see any mention of God Creator mentioning LOVE for mankind. Moses does, but not God Creator

            you confuse your gods again

          • Elena

            The Bible is God’s love letter to humanity. Jesus is the seal on that love.

          • Elena

            Allah is NOT the creator nor is he genuinely god, hence the lower case. He is a god who hates humanity while YHVH of the Bible loves humanity.

          • DrStone

            I stand corrected. Thank you for explaining that, I never knew that. :)

          • Elena

            It’s a common misconception. I would also encourage you to acquire the Pirke Avot (modern language) to soak in some wonderful Jewish wisdom. It will read like Proverbs to you.

            The Talmud, or oral law, was written down shortly after the Romans took out the Temple. There are two Talmuds — Babylonian Talmud (quite readily available and longer) and the Palestinian Talmud (originating in Javneh/Jamnia in the Holy Land). In some ways the publication of the Talmud serves the Rabbinic Jewish community much as the New Testament serves the Christian community. Both are directed reflections of the Torah and Prophets.

          • Yo Mamma

            Mishnah, was 200 ad, the gemarah 500 ad give or take a few hundred years is not shortly after

            Mohammad 600ad

            Prophets just like writing and gospels and talmud, came when there was chaos in Israel. They are not part of the inheritance of the LAND

            inheritance of the LAND is not for Jews or Muslims or Christians

            but Hebrews

          • Elena

            Mohammad is not of the Biblical tradition. His god is Allah, a heathen deity worshiped like Ba’al only by the Arabs.

          • Yo Mamma

            Muslims follow closer the literal Torah than any christian or jew combined

          • Elena

            No, they don’t. How could they when they worship a different god?

          • Yo Mamma

            In your educated opinion lol – I can tell you are wrong.

            Who eats pork?

            Who does NOT believe in an eye for an eye?

            Who worships idols?

            Muslims?

            I don’t think so

            Once again your narrow education distorts reality

          • Elena

            Muslims worship a god other than the one in the Bible.

            Seventh Day Adventists don’t eat pork or shellfish. Nor do I. Nor do many of my Jewish friends.

            As a Christian I do not worship idols either, nor do my Jewish friends.

            Eye for an eye was more just in its day than anything else going. Muslims do not practice eye for an eye. They take out their vengeance on family members. For example, the son rapes a neighbor’s daughter. Does the son get raped in return? No, his sister is raped in his place. Or she is sold off to make good on a debt. Or she is murdered for the debt of another. This is not eye for an eye. This is shariah.

          • Yo Mamma

            Have you been to a Priest to atone for your SINS?

            No

            This is what heathens do. They don’t go to Priests

          • Elena

            Jesus atoned for my sins at the Cross and the Grave. His Empty Tomb proves the work was all done there. His resurrection gives me new life and power to live in accord with Him.

          • DrStone

            So then you take a spotless lamb to a priest for sacrifice and atonement? Without the Ark of the Covenant or a Levite is that even following the Commandments?

          • Elena

            Yo Mamma is more than likely a muslim who thinks he knows the Bible. He has yet to cite a single verse fm the Scriptures that supports any of his wild ideas, that sound very much like the attacks muslims make on the Bible, Jews, and Christians.

          • DrStone

            I was thinking the same. If he or she is, I have been sitting here praying for eye to be opened to the saving work of Jesus on the cross.

          • Elena

            Keep up the good work, Beloved!

          • DrStone

            God bless you.

          • DrStone

            Thank you so much. I just added it to my Amazon book list. I do find that I get a lot of inspiration when I have the opportunity to listen to wise Rabbinical teachings. Such a deeper understanding of, what we call the Old Testament.

          • Yo Mamma

            You can read all you like, but the interpreter of the words is what YOU LACK lol

          • Elena

            It will also improve your understanding of Paul. For, Paul was first and foremost a Jewish Rabbi! It will also give you more of a feel for some of Jesus’ harder sayings that come across as hard and harsh in light of our Enlightenment-based Western world view. For, Jesus was also a Rabbi.

            Semitic literature is wonderful and full of vivid imagery and “bigger” than most Western lit.

            I pray that you will come to love the Semitic mind!

          • Yo Mamma

            He was ministering because the roman and pharisee, like paul, murdered the priests and stole the treasury to build the Colosseum.

          • Elena

            You are pretty far out on that limb. Your retelling of history reads like a fractured fairy tale. Try again.

        • Yo Mamma

          Torah is not the old testament dufus

          You christians had better get clued up on your Torah – ITS THE FRONT OF YOUR BIBLES

          • Elena

            Kill the name calling. It does not add to a conversation.

          • DrStone

            I’m sorry your so upset. I’m still not mad and I still forgive you.

          • Yo Mamma

            No you’re just another arrogant ignorant heathen

          • DrStone

            I’m praying you find peace and freedom from this anger.

          • Elena

            No soul who is found in Christ is a heathen.

            You cannot speak for YHVH, no matter how much you shout. You are not following the paradigm set forth in Torah.

          • Yo Mamma

            According to God Creator, those that do not follow Torah are heathens – Christians do not follow therefore heathens

          • Elena

            You are mistaken.

          • Yo Mamma

            How different from the Jebusite, the Canaanite, the Moabite?

            Yes, you are different lol

          • Elena

            A Moabite was the g’ma to King David.

          • Yo Mamma

            And David was a Literal follower of Torah lol

            The man that slept with a wife of a man and then had him murdered?/

            Yes, jews love their david

          • DrStone

            In 1 Samuel 13 I believe God said David was a man after His own heart. Sounds like God approved of him as well, and that’s good enough for me.

          • Elena

            Jews love that David and Moses the murderer could be forgiven and loved. If they can be loved, then surely YHVH loves us just as much.

  • Jesusvision

    Hey, Glenn: I love this piece. In a nutshell, it’s not about “religion,” it’s about “relationship.” Relationship with God and our relationship with others. Jesus boiled the Ten Commandments down to two: “Love The Lord thy God with all of your heart, soul and spirit, and love thy neighbor as yourself.” All barriers come down. Once a month the pastors iof our county, fr every faith, get together and pray in unity. Our community has come together as never before and we’ve been blessed in so many ways! God is good and there is none greater’. God Nless you and your family!

    A few months ago I sent you an article “God’s Perspective on Global Warming”.
    I never heard a response from you or you staff. Just wondering if you got it?

  • Patriot Girl

    Being religious w/o a true God or a focus… diminishes all religions… it is the ecumenical movement… the unity of religion with will lead to the one world/new age religion satan is working towards… while I agree all religions can and should come together to preserve religious freedom… that is about the only thing they have in common – to accept all religions as valid and right means you don’t really believe in yours or anybody elses… There is only one true God that reigns in Heaven, that inspired the Bible.. to give and pay homage to all the others ad legitimate…means none of them are real and there is no true God which makes religion a sham…

    Has anyone ever listened to David Jeremiah! Excellent preacher who is a scholar and speaks the word of God using scripture. He is on Sunday mornings. Also Greg Albrecht of Plain Truth (Christianity without the religion) – an online ministry for people discouraged with a typical church, I.e., hypocrisy, being hurt by slander, etc. He also puts out a magazine which covers a variety od topics that are engaging, and gives a different perspective. He is an additional source for spiritual growth.
    I really like Glenn. Lately, though he seems to be preaching a lot, and it can be very annoying. I don’t listen to him for his preaching. It seems sometimes he doesn’t care what his viewers think, or he is to busy to take to heart what some viewers may feel, because he has also been saying recently that if he loses everything because of what he believes, so be it. I find that very disheartening. To know that he is willing to dismiss those viewers who may not like or disagree with him at times is disconcerting. Could it be that he is getting to big for his britches? I truly hope not..

    • http://www.Yahoo.com/?fr=fptb-msgr Determined3

      No he is being honest and some people just can’t handle truth but so willing to listen to fuzzy feel good lies well satan is the author of lies and sweet flattering words and uses scripture to decieve yes that’s his mo he knows people listen to man tell them what is in the bible instead of taking the time to read and talk with GOD themselves pew potatoes and I wonder when they leave church if they ask themselves what did I learn today FROM GOD????

    • NOLIKEO

      Maybe he is going to become a minister of a big church if things don’t work out in the movie business. He could certainly fill a huge arena as he used to be an excellent speaker. Haven’t seen him in years do that.

  • Jesusvision

    Hey, Glenn: I love this piece. In a nutshell, it’s not about “religion,” it’s about “relationship.” Relationship with God and our relationship with others. Jesus boiled the Ten Commandments down to two: “Love The Lord thy God with all of your heart, soul and spirit, and love thy neighbor as yourself.” All barriers come down. Once a month the pastors of our county, of every faith, get together and pray in unity. Our community has come together as never before and we’ve been blessed in so many ways! God is good and there is none greater! God Bless you and your family!

    • Yo Mamma

      This is GB’s ‘testimony’. It’s from a John Stossel interview.That night he went to Alcoholics Anonymous. Not long after, he became a Mormon. I asked him why.

      “I apologize, but guys will understand this. My wife is, like, hot, and she wouldn’t have sex with me until we got married. And she wouldn’t marry me unless we had a religion.”

      I asked Tania Beck about that. She laughed, saying, “He’s not joking.”Do you *really* think he has a relationship with God?I do gather from your post that you share his ‘all roads’ perspective, so I’m not guessing this will raise any flags.

      • Jesusvision

        Quite the opposite, actually. There’s a difference between varying “religions” and varying “denominations.” Christianity, unfortunately, becomes divided at times because of the varying denominations within the single faith ie: Catholic/ Protestant, Baptist/Methodist/Presbyterian/Pentacostal/Non-Denominational, etc. But we all serve one God, and one way to God, and that is through His son, Jesus Christ. Glenn knows both. I’m not going to judge Glenn based in his “religion.” That’s between him and God. But when one who genuinely has the Holy Spirit, through the grace and mercy of Gid, you can truly sense that spirit in others. It’s called discernment.

        • Type 53

          I appreciate your civil response, but I disagree with your assessment of Beck’s ‘faith’. It is one part Mormon-of-convenience (evidenced by his ‘choosing’ of a ‘religion’ to appease his wife-to-be), and another part the AA ‘higher power’ concept. Neither are evidence of Christian faith.

  • Jean Col

    Beck has reported the truth and has been on point so many times. The guy really researches his stuff endlessly.

  • Janet Prentice

    a man on a mission, keep letting God mold your life. God bless you & we will miss you this week. God’s Speed

  • mompatriot

    Glenn is a good man and we all appreciate his efforts. Yes we can be “friends”, but we do have to all be unified in Christ: there is no other way to eternal life with Him, so the above quote is perplexing to me: “We all have so many friends that understand that we don’t all have to believe the same thing. In fact, they almost all believe that the world wouldn’t be as great of a place if we all had a uni opinion.”

  • Renitaran

    Glenn is on the right track. Find common ground to agree on. Good creates love, evil creates anger and hate. We ppl of faith know where actions of love go, it defeats hate.

  • http://www.Yahoo.com/?fr=fptb-msgr Determined3

    GOD BLESS you Glenn and your family.Your always in my prayers we may differ on our religouse beliefs but I know we all have a personal savior we believe in and ONE GOD we praise and love and thank for HIS mercy HE shows all HIS children and share that beautiful GOSPEL of Salvation with all of our other brothers and sisters whether they are believers or not that’s the purpose to share that love and salvation with them not hide it or keep it to ourselves we are still sinners with a gift of GRACE and MERCY we don’t deserve but GOD OUR FATHERS thinks we are worthy and expects us to show the same toward others that’s brotherly love toward one another.Thankl you Glenn for standing strong and firm on your convictions GOD has laid on your heart I know from years of lilstening to you your not a double-minded man you don’t say one thing to one group of people and something different to another group.I love that when you feel you have said or done something in error you are always honest and upfront about it.I have seen you grow into a mature man of the LIVING GOD who guides your heart and life and it has been a joyful inspirering journey and has changed my life to and thought process never on my faith just brought me closer to my SAVIOR with more trust and faith also deep study of HIS WORD and still growing.

    If Glenn is a Christian, it should matter to him what a person believes. Speaking as a Mormon, Glenn is deceived already. The Great Commission is Every Christian’s command from Jesus and though you don’t want to force non believers, you should attempt to present the message of the truth to the world. I accept all people’s right to choose a belief system, as long as it is not forced on me. Islam,atheism etc. are to me false teachings, but if they do not FORCE me to accept them,as radical Islam does, I am OK with them. Glenn is a man of semantics, it seems, I may be wrong, but he seems to be evolving to new truths and ideas which I do not agree.

    • Yo Mamma

      “If Glenn is a Christian” – I guess if he turns the cheek after getting a slap, he’s a true Christian – The true christian test – If they attack, they are not christian

    • Type 53

      If Glenn is a Christian, it should matter to him what a person believes.That’s the bottom line. It isn’t Beck’s. He dallies with Christian theology, as though he has some expertise through conversion and study of the word. He doesn’t. He “chose a religion” at his wife-to-be’s request to seal the deal with her. He is at his worst when he assumes to speak as some sort of home-spun theologian.

  • shouldbcampin

    I just found out a young co-worker has metastatic testicular cancer. He may need more surgery, chemo, radiation or a combination of all three. He has three children under age four. He is a Mormon and very active in his church. I was raised Mormon but haven’t practiced in 30 years and am agnostic but today I found myself going back to my roots and wanting to pray for this special young man. I don’t think my prayers would be all that helpful but I would ask you all to pray for him. His name is Travis.

    • ladybarber61

      I think anyones prayers are good prayers. Travis will be in my prayers.

    Glenn, weren’t you raised Catholic????

  • TheTruthLivesHere

    Mormanism and Christianity should not be depicted as the same religion. If that were the case then Jews are the same as Christians. The only way to heaven is believing in Jesus Christ and accepting him as lord and saviour. The Bible clearly states this fact yet many of these professed CHRISTians would like people to believe that one must live a good life and fallow the teachings of God. If they were truly Christian why then do they ignore Gods teachings in the Bible that Jesus is the only way. Also many times throughout the Bible God helped his people destroy those who tried persecuting them. Jesus teaches turn the other cheek and the meek shall inherit the earth, but does not teach to abondon our values and allow the name of God and his teachings to be manipulated and twisted to make them politically correct or non offensive. The Bible is meant to be offensive its called conviction. Let the islamist militants, the metropolitan church, and all those come against the Christians and the Jews, we have no fear, because it has already been written we will be persecuted for our beliefs, but also written that all will bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. For if God is with us then who shall be against us. In no way is fighting against evil,persecution,and immorality in the name of God non-christian. I would contend that Jesus would be pleased to see His people stand united for Him against all that slander His name, and if they bring violence to subdue us crazy Christians then we must put on the armor of God and fight for the only thing left in the world with dying for. Be strong in your beliefs and fear no evil or death, because death is sweet victory and eternity in Heavan. VICTORY IN JESUS!!!

    Glenn, You are an inspiration and a great comfort for those of us who remember this country when it was one nation under God, regardless of interpretation, and when we felt safe and secure in our schools, with our families, and in our places of worship. Americans were almost childlike in their trust of government. Now, chaos reigns, and the devils have been unleashed. They’ve always been there, I guess.
    Your kind demeanor and wise words give us comfort. Thank you, Glenn Beck.

  • Yo Mamma

    “Service to our fellow man IS service to God”

    Lol which ‘gods’ we’re referring to here?

    The eye for an eye God or the plastic man on a plastic cross god? Be specific

    • Elena

      You shall love the LORD your God with all of you.

      You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

      On these TWO commandments hang all the Law (Torah) and the Prophets.

      The Bible reveals that God has many facets yet is ONE in substance and purpose. Call Him YHVH, Jesus, Shekinah Glory — He is who He is. God the Son, Jesus, is the one sure way of defeating death and the devil — salvation by another name. You cannot earn your way out of death or do enough good that the devil will leave you be. Your at-one-ment with God is guaranteed thru the Blood that Jesus shed on a Cross to absolve you of all your sins and take the sting out of death. In the Cross, the war betw good and evil is already won. We are merely mopping up the mess until Jesus returns in Glory.

      • Yo Mamma

        Jesus was not the messiah, nor was Mohammad and God Creator is not a HE.

        How do we know jesus was not the messiah?

        Very easily

        Torah says that a messenger will come and speak the word of God Creator and those that do NOT follow, they will be FORCED to by God Creator.

        God Creator never softened up to jesus and he died confused. God Creator has YET to partner with the messenger and destroy those that do not follow literal Torah – as it is written

        • Elena

          Jesus is God Incarnate, man divine. He is God the Son, born into time when the Father saw fit.

          Jesus followed Torah and in Matthew’s Gospel commends the disciples to also follow what Torah lays out. He came not to abolish the Torah but to fulfill it.

          I am curious where you are interpreting your passage fm Torah, which I have read and meditated upon many times:

          Torah says that a messenger will come and speak the word of God Creator and those that do NOT follow, they will be FORCED to by God Creator.

          • Yo Mamma

            “jesus followed Torah” – NO he did not. Torah dictates that the bloodline of Aaron minister to the people of Israel. Those Priests being of the Levi tribe. The man u call a god was of the judah tribe. He had no right to minister or even read from Torah. He deserved death in that case(according to Torah and the judges of the time). He also told the people to follow him. God Creator is a jealous God and wants mankind to not follow a man, but to follow God Creator

            That is very simply stated because you need simple

          • Elena

            Cite the passage that says only a Levite can read Torah. Josiah read it and tore his robes! Josiah was of Judah.

          • Yo Mamma

            You have the Torah in front of your bible. It shouldn’t be there but it is.

            YOU read it. OPEN your eyes.

            If I were you I would get rid of it post haste

          • Elena

            I honor YHVH as much as any of my Jewish friends, perhaps more as I am grafted into Abraham’s family.

            I stand by my post.

          • Yo Mamma

            You need to go with it. Remember the messenger speaks the word of God Creator, and those that do not Heed, God Creator will REQUIRE it of them.

            See any requiring going on?

          • Elena

            Cite your verses.

          • Yo Mamma

            You are seriously clueless

            Remember, when you see the damage in front of your eyes, YOU WERE TOLD

          • Elena

            You are seriously challenged if you can spout out vitriol but not back it up w/factual data. If you wish to be taken seriously, cite your verses.

          • Yo Mamma

            I don’t need to quote it line for line. YOU HAVE THE STOLEN SACRED TEXT – yet you cannot understand it

            Why?

            Because you are heathen trying to interpret God Creator word

            Word given to Priests

          • Elena

            You are rambling on in nonsensical posts.

            You cannot cite your Biblical source for your strange unBiblical ideas because those ideas are simply not supported by the Torah, Prophets, Writings, or the NT.

          • Yo Mamma

            Elena, you know the christians say many things like ‘bless you’ or ‘may god bless you’ all vain mentions of God, but all I say dear, is I wish you well

            The Priests do the blessing, not you greedy thieving people that stole the sacred Torah from the Hebrews

            And you have the chutzpa to place it as a trophy in front of your bible?

            And you want it to go well for you as well/????? lol

            Jesus did not offer sacrifices as the Temple priests or take part in the ritual as a Levite.

            He healed, drove out demons, fed the multitudes, and preached Good News. These functions, called ministry today, were not in His day. His role in public was like that of the Rabbis of His day.

          • Yo Mamma

            Offering sacrifices, i did not mention did i????

            I refer to ministering and YOU do not qualify as an interpreter of Torah. Rabbis LOL

            Rabbis were not yet in control of Jerusalem until AFTER 70ad.

          • Lisa_Belise

            The greek word in the New Testament used when it says that Jesus ministered unto the people, does NOT have the literal meaning of “A MINISTER” as in priest.

            As far as reading from the Torah, on the Sabbath, any common Israelite could read from the Torah in synagogues.

            You write as one who has not read the actual Torah, but as one who has been taught the opinions of others regarding it. How sad.

          • Yo Mamma

            Any common Israelite, yes after 70ad when the Priesthood was destroyed

            They still do today. You even have a stolen copy next to your bed

        There are no gods and there never were. Ignorant primitive men made it all up because they didn’t have science. That came along a lot later when physicist Ibn al-Haytham discovered the scientific method in the 11th century.

        • Lisa_Belise

          They didn’t have science? What is “science” other than the study and explanation of how the natural world works? The method for that discovery is born with each of us, al-Haytham didn’t discover it. He formulated rules by which it should be conducted. The ancient Aztecs, Egyptians and other cultures surely understood math, symetry, gravity, and had mapped and understood the stars and their behavior in relation to Earth long before Ptolemy lived…and that was hundreds of years before al-Haytham was even born.

          What kind of a doctor are you, that lacks such attention to historic fact?

        • tonybigs

          Attacks on Christians by those who believe they are justified by science and claiming “primitive ignorance” do not know or have forgotten that Christians have made many contributions to science over the millennia. But then, doctor, you should already know that.

  • Spiketac223

    Glenn, don’t construe this as hate: You are heading down a dangerous ecumenical road, where we paint God as only loving, but somehow forgetting that He is also a holy and righteous God, which means that there are not multiple paths to get into heaven. You must come in by the way of the Cross and our faith must ever be maintained in Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. You say you want friends from different faiths, so why don’t you get yourself some Spirit-filled Pentecostal friends who will lead you in the proper direction? You’re losing me . . . and the funny thing is maybe you deserve to lose me if you’re going to accept this idea of God as being accessible through many different ways. That’s a Universalist/New Age attitude, and you’re playing right into Satan’s worldly system. I guess that’s what you get when you’ve already accepted false doctrine – you end up not being moored to anything solid, and you waffle in your beliefs. That’s the way it always is.There is only one way, and that is the Cross of Christ! Also, you ask where are the pulpits that won’t remain silent on important issues? There’s one in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and it’s called Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, whose TV network, SBN, is the fastest growing Christian network in the world. They just went on in Israel, an unprecedented event as the land that originated the Gospel has it return in unadulterated fashion. They’re truly courageous in getting the Gospel out and God is blessing them mightily because of the Message that they preach, which is the Cross. You think you’ve got Spiritual discernment of a Born-Again Christian, watch this and tell me if you feel the Spirit (Really look at the faces of the youths toward the end at the Altar call): http://sonlifetv.com/archives.html?video_uuid=kkhl749t&categoryId=57261 You referenced in your column that God is about to do something great and that He is moving. That’s true; but the move won’t be initiated by you or your gospel of works. It will be a sweeping move of the Holy Ghost bringing us a second day of Pentecost, just like the Azusa Street Revival of 1906 that lasted for a solid three years of miraculous healing. I pray that you have a revelation of the Cross, given by the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. I love you and desire with all of my heart for you to be linked up with awesome heavenly power brought about by the Holy Spirit. Finally, I know how you love George Washington, so I thought I’d post this sermon by Donnie Swaggart about Washington and the blessed land that we live in: http://sonlifetv.com/archives.html?video_uuid=uh6m6c2j&categoryId=57261 I think it is one of the best historical sermons I’ve ever heard, possibly with the exception of David Barton.

      You assume he is a Christian. As I posted below, this is his ‘testimony’ (from a John Stossel interview):That night he went to Alcoholics Anonymous. Not long after, he became a Mormon. I asked him why.

      “I apologize, but guys will understand this. My wife is, like, hot, and she wouldn’t have sex with me until we got married. And she wouldn’t marry me unless we had a religion.”

      I asked Tania Beck about that. She laughed, saying, “He’s not joking.”He ain’t.

      • Spiketac223

        I’d tend to agree. Mormons aren’t Christian, they’re a cult. But I would say that when he was laying on his carpet in his $600 apartment about to commit suicide, his moment of salvation could’ve very well been authentic; however, his continued belief in false doctrine could and is causing him to be spiritually blinded, which will ultimately lead to damnation if he doesn’t return to Jesus, and only Jesus – no additions to the Word of God either. That’s why I pray that he gets spirit-filled and that he come out of that deceived and false religion (I know that it can happen based on others’ testimonies). I like Glenn, but I don’t like his religion one bit.

        • Lisa_Belise

          Odd that you say Mormons aren’t Christian, when the name of their organization is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When they embrace the King James bible as the word of God. When they call the Jesus Christ of that Bible their Lord and Savior.

          The idea that there can be “no additions to the Word of God”, is, itself, an addition to God’s word, since God never said such a thing. Someone would have to be spiritually blinded to believe in such a false doctrine.

          • Type 53

            The idea that there can be “no additions to the Word of God”, is, itself, an addition to God’s word, since God never said such a thing. Actually, there are many verses that say just that. Here are a few:

            Revelation 22:18-19

            I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

            Deuteronomy 4:2

            You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you.

            Proverbs 30:5-6
            Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.

            Revelation 22:18

            I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book,

            Deuteronomy 12:32

            “Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.

            Revelation 22:19

            And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

            Matthew 24:24

            For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

            Deuteronomy 13:1-10

            “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder that he tells you comes to pass, and if he says, ‘Let us go after other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the Lord your God is testing you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear him and keep his commandments and obey his voice, and you shall serve him and hold fast to him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has taught rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you out of the house of slavery, to make you leave the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.

            Just because a name has “Jesus” in it doesn’t mean it has the stamp of approval from Heaven. If someone is named Christian, does that automatically make them a Christian? Drop your Mormon talking points that the Church gives its members, and really ask the Holy Spirit to show you the truth about Mormonism. Mormons preach “another Jesus,” which Paul spoke about in 2 Corinthians 11:4. Your heretical doctrine, supposedly given to Joseph Smith by the Angel Moroni on golden plates, was actually inspired by Smith receiving instructions from an Angel of Light (of Satan’s domain). But I wouldn’t expect someone who’s already accepted the deception to know that. If that sounds harsh, it’s because it is to your deaf ears and darkened eyes. Sternness is sometimes the only thing that will shake a person from their spiritual torpor. Will you check what you believe against the Word of God (only the Bible) and ask the Holy Spirit to guide into truth? It’s up to you.

  • CeceD

    I understand what Glen is saying here. We are God’s hands, feet and heart in this world. [Matthew, 25:35-45]
    The time has come to release our predilictions, our religiousity … and surrender to the living God Who stands ready to come alive and live through us. For it is only at that intersection of consensus and willingness that we come together as brothers and sisters in Love.
    Personal relationships with God are just that: personal. I spent three years in Seminary, and I can assure you … the moment I start preaching to someone else about how wrong they’re getting it, the implication is that I’ve “got it right.” That is the moment when I have drifted fully into the tall weeds of arrogance and self righteousness. Our world is in chaos as a direct result of that attitude.
    I believe that Glen is on to something here. For several years, I’ve thought the same thing Glen is endorsing. Finally a public figure is coming forward and saying it out loud. Metaphorically I say, let’s put the books down, take the hands of those standing next to us, and raise our voices in praise. The walls of Jericho came down that way. And there are far more of us than there were of them.

    • Yo Mamma

      Why think of destroying walls of Jericho, leave them alone lol

  • Yo Mamma

    One thing is for sure, there are many ignorant, arrogant Christians spouting off their religion here like they know

    Know this

    Your religion is in utter disarray. You are disillusioned

    You cannot even see the truth when its presented to you. Not even in YOUR LIFE. Forget about the many sins of your afthers, but even in your life you are utterly clueless

    Oh hum, what to do

    • Elena

      I don’t know — I am full of hope, certainly not disillusioned my muslim acquaintance.

      I fear you are truly the clueless one, heading for ultimate disillusionment. You may wish to pick up the whole Bible and read.

      • Yo Mamma

        Oh dear, I have and I know hypocrisy and malicious intent when I see it

        Tell me Elena, the Torah, it was your inheritance? It says so in Torah whose it is. It says its yours?

        No its not. You are not a Hebrew Priest. You have a copy of it and for that YOU ARE A THIEF.

        Torah is the inheritance of the Hebrews, those that follow Literal Torah. If you have a copy of the sacred text, not only is it dangerous, its illegal

        SO sayeth God Creator, and inheritance of the bloodline of Aaron

        • Elena

          No malice here. I gave up malice a looooooong time ago.

          However, I do sense a certain antipathy toward me by you. But that does not bother me in the least.

          I belong to YHVH thru Jesus’ atonement on the Cross. And that cannot be nor will it be taken fm me.

          • Yo Mamma

            Go with that – Don’t cry like your god on the cross all confused. You do not want the truth

          • tonybigs

            That you do not understand does not make it any less true.

          • Elena

            You would not know the Truth if it came up to you and introduced Himself.

          • Yo Mamma

            I want to see more of you but I think your stay will be short lived

    • tonybigs

      What to do? You should know. Pray.

      • Yo Mamma

        Prayer is not commanded, but if you like and it makes you feel good, you pray, but it will not help you

        • tonybigs

          Then you willfully deny the assistance of God.

          • Yo Mamma

            Go away heathen – no hope for you

          • tonybigs

            Then you have given up on God completely.

          • Yo Mamma

            On God Creator I didn’t give up

            On God Creator I don’t hate

            God Creator I have my inheritance

            God Creator I trust

          • tonybigs

            If you believe that to be true then pray and hope.

    • Lisa_Belise

      And what of your ignorant, arrogant spouting off your opinion here like you know? Your opinion is your own, and it carries no more weight or importance than anyone else’s. It is beyond arrogant, and into the realm of mental instability, for you to accuse others of being disillusioned, clueless, and hypocritical while behaving in the exact manner you ascribe to others.

      You have zero authority to speak against anyone here, and you are obviously a deeply troubled person if you cannot see that truth as I have presented it to you.

    Amen, Glenn! And well said. No, we don’t have to all believe EXACTLY the same way. I believe we can get along just fine knowing we all believe in the LORD, and have hope. I have dear friends from all walks of faith. Sometimes, it’s just fun to get together and make a joyful noise unto the LORD. There are plenty of songs we all know and can share, and can teach one another. Too bad not everyone feels that way.

  • shimdo

    Glenn, as you say, we are not of the same ” religion “, but the way you handle things with friends and what you say to people, I can’t help but believe
    God is using you in a mighty way. Just keep it up.

    • Ryan Hitchens

      Glenn is using you and people like you and that’s the real truth.

      • Lisa_Belise

        If one voluntarily gives up their time and means, regardless of the outcome, they are not being used. If I CHOOSE to purchase one of Glenn’s books, or products, I am entering into a seller/purchaser relationship just like you do when you buy something you want. Are you being “used” in similar circumstances? If I CHOOSE to donate money to one of Glenn’s causes or charities, I do so freely and
        without expectation of renumeration. Thus he cannot be “using me” except as a means to an end that I agreed to.

        You can disagree all you want to, but THAT is the real truth.

  • Liberty For All

    Look at all this talk about God
    Look at all the contradictions
    About believing in this
    Or believing in that

    Of believing what’s right
    Or believing what wrong

    If all you have is belief to justify an argument
    Then all arguments are equal

    Believe what you may, but in the end
    God or no God
    What deteriorates the physical and moral quality of life
    More than any other
    Is coercion, or the forcing of others against their will

    Is it possible for us to advance beyond beliefs
    And advance beyond the fear of devil creatures
    And in the end, to advance beyond coercion

    To bring forward our powers of reason once again
    Which we exercised so thoroughly at our founding.

    Consider that if one bases their sole argument
    On a belief in God
    Than not believing in God
    Nullifies ones argument that quick

    It’s time to do more than believe
    To do more than feel
    And to do more than argue or act on emotion
    It’s really time to begin using our power of reason once again

    There are physical reasons human societies decline in history
    Such as socialism, communism, statism
    It’s because they were built on coercion

    They fail not because it was the wrong dictator
    Or the wrong religion
    Or the wrong coercion
    They fail time and again
    Because of coercion itself

    Coercion starves our physical actions of efficiency
    And efficiency is the very definition of physical survival
    God or no God

    Economic decline is the dying of nature that’s inefficient
    Just as any other part of nature dies from inefficiency

    And so the question must be asked:

    Is the nation divided
    By those who wish to coerce
    And those who do not?

    Or by those that wish to coerce one way
    And by those who wish to coerce another?

    For if it’s the latter…it makes no difference who’s belief wins the day
    Because one’s beliefs do not change the laws of physical nature
    As coercion will grow like a cancer as it always does
    And consume itself to support itself
    And the outcome will be the same

    Lesson?
    God or no God
    All coercion will result in economic decline
    So belief what you may
    But know the physical lesson of freedom and coercion

    God or no God

    • tonybigs

      Lesson.
      It has been revealed to us how it all ends.
      It does not end well.
      Our fault.

        • tonybigs

          Perhaps, but I would not presume God’s judgement of me.

  • Yo Mamma

    So let me ask you oh faithful with big churches, oh so powerful and many….

    When will the Catholic church, the Vatican, give back the stolen furnishings of the last Temple of the Priests in Jerusalem?

    Yes, they have them. Given to them by the defeated roman army.

    Unless they are given back, its considered a theft and those that continue to hold them are thieves

    So when you talk of peace, you need to start by righting the wrongs, like this

    And while you are at it….

    Remove from the front of ALL you bibles, the Torah, The Pentateuch, The Five Books

    These are stolen scriptures

    Stolen from The Priests that God Creator chose to safeguard them

    The inheritance for all eternity of the The Priests that God Creator chose

    Not you

    By holding onto Torah, you are acknowledging that you are a thief

    Remove it from your bibles and give it to a Hebrew Priest

    You have no claim to it and its very dangerous that you keep it next to your beds

    • tonybigs

      Claim “thief” yet you steal Truth as if it belonged to you. It does not.

      • Elena

        He’s a bit of a nutjob when it comes to the Bible. He pretends that the Bible was only for the Aaronic priesthood rather than for us all. He just keeps on claiming that w/o any proof of same fm any scripture.

        • tonybigs

          He started in the topic blaming Catholics in an “otherwise good country” (sort for best comments) and has descended to condemning Christianity in general.

  • Ryan Hitchens

    Oh just stop it Glenn. For crissakes, YOU have been selling an “US AGAINST THEM” narrative for years and you know it! You have even stated, over the public airwaves, that people either stand with you or they stand with supernatural evil. You are a huge part of the problem and your last minute 180 degree change of course is a joke. You’re a hypocrite Glenn Beck.

    • Yo Mamma

      LOL keeping it real Ryan

    • SickOf BeingCoddled

      Anyone who thinks this is last minute has not watched Glenn enough to really know him. He is evolving just as all of us are. Should something bad you did be used to dismiss out of hand the good you are trying to do now? Reaching a higher level of thinking, doing, being, is a ladder you climb and sometimes the steps are close together and sometimes they are far apart and sometimes you leap over a few or fall back. Glenn is just like you Dr. Ryan, Let God judge his motives, Glenn is calling for people to be good and loving and kind and honest and decent– not a bad idea for any of us. And he is backing it up by his actions $3 million raised and Going to the border himself, $6 million raised and given to Special Operations fund for education for orphans of slain soldiers. Money raised for Kris Kyle, Justina Pelletier, Sgt Tammoorisi, etc. etc. etc.. market place for home businesses, Mercury One for disaster relief – first year Many millions of dollars given out . first on the ground with food in oklama tornados last year.

      • Yo Mamma

        If the captain of the Titanic survived and gave much to charity, would he be a hero in your eyes?

        I have the power to stop ISIS beheadings. I do, but if its just humans evolving as you say, why intervene?

        Because you say “Should something bad you did be used to dismiss out of hand the good you are trying to do now?”

        Give ISIS a break maybe some good will come of their actions.

      • Ryan Hitchens

        Just a little over a year ago, Beck was ranting and raving about President Obama covering up for a Saudi terrorist. Beck also accused all of our top law enforcement people of being involved in the conspiracy. Since then, he’s been proven completely wrong and yet he never bothered to set the record straight. And now, he’s in court trying to defend himself from a defamation lawsuit that resulted form his loony conspiracy theory. Go back and watch him rant for weeks on youtube about this nutjob idea of his. Watch how intense and seething with anger and emotion he was. A huge number of gullible people bought into Beck’s fantasy and the barrage of hate they showered onto a an innocent kid who just turned 20 is sickening to witness. No. Glenn’s little act isn’t sincere it seems. You’re pretty damn gullible to fall for it.

  • SickOf BeingCoddled

    i have never heard of the “bad God” and i have been a christian all my life. Glenn was not talking about a religion other than the religion of GOD whom we serve best through our service to each other. if you do not believe as someone else does about the good or bad god, can you at least express the goodness you do have by speaking kind and gentle words and doing kind and gentle things and presenting opinions in a way that doesn’t turn away everyone from even considering your perspective. It is your hope to save us from our errors , right? Then you have to present this in a way that doesn’t influence us to close our ears. I am not saying disguise your truth, just present it with love as good GOD would have us do.

    • Yo Mamma

      I guess wiping humanity off the face of the earth is good?? You are one crazy person

      • tonybigs

        • Lisa_Belise

          Even if He wasn’t right and just, we would still be at his mercy. The idea that humanity can re-create God to be something other than what He is, is the ultimate arrogance.

          • Yo Mamma

            There you go again heathens calling God Creator a HE

            There are many examples in Torah that gender is not used to refer to God Creator.

            ‘HE’ is a christian / jewish decision made by grumpy old men that had it in their power to make this change. These men, rely on faithful’s like ELENA to prostit——ute their masculine agenda

          • Elena

            God is not an “It.” He is beyond our finite concept of gender, but He allows us to refer to Him w/gendered pronouns for we can do no better. Our human languages are limited by gender.

            The Hebrew language doe not have a neuter, and it does refer to God the Creator and Sustainer in the masculine gender.

          • Yo Mamma

            Not only are you a thief, but a Hater of God creator. I hope to see more of your posts. It tells me you’re still alive.

            Why why oh why, does God Creator allow non-believer like Elena to run rampant on earth? If there is a God Creator and the promise to require these people to heed to the word of Torah, for goodness sake, use Elena as an example and require it of her. Then please keep on going. There is no need to stop because there are many like her. I could suggest where to look. Visit them all and REQUIRE of them

            Hey Elena

            Keep us informed if God Creator has REQUIRED you to conform to Torah yet

    • Take 2

      On earth, God created both good and evil for God’s own good purpose. In the end, when an individual meets Perfection face to face eg there is no more evil and only good.

      Meaning, God is only good.

      Notice the word individual…! Be mindful of handed down dictations of Parent or any particular denomination or nondenominational of Church ie Faith or Non faith.

      • tonybigs

        God does not nor has ever created evil. God permits evil through Free Will Choice.

        • Take 2

          Free Will? God created duality of both good and evil for his own good purpose I.e. is paraphrasing out of the Holy Bible. Black and white day and night man and woman?

          Good thoughts and bad thoughts Cowboys and Indians Jews and Muslims and so on and so on.

          Happy sunshine and evil storms that you can choose to go out into or not.

          However, sometimes your’er stuck without a choice! Your Freewill is compromised by God’s path for you and every individual born here on earth. Ah are we all born than good and evil or just good or just evil? Only God knows and the gift of conversation with God can or might free an individual from evil or perhaps not. God certainly created evil and including the fallen Angeles of Darkness.

          Thank God for sending Christ to grant us pardons for all our good and evil sins.

          Read the book of Jonah.

        • Yo Mamma

          he has great powers to do bad things
          an invisible presence
          that you have created an image of
          you are in fear of him

          on the flip side

          he has great powers to do ‘good’ things
          an invisible presence
          that you have created an image of
          you are in love with him

          Your 2 gods summarized
          There is truth and there is your truth. The above is truth.
          When you deny the above its your truth

      • Elena

        Satan is not a deity.

        • Yo Mamma

          Your opinion is worth less than excrement from a cockroaches behind

          there is no truth to what elena the christian says

          Look for the two sticks tied together and know you are being told lies

          • tonybigs

            So says the cockroach. Better to be worth less than cockroach excrement than to be fooled into thinking that one is worth more.

    • Cavy4Freedom

      oh boy…have you gone off on a different wave length…try to think of us as all on this planet…we have to share it…or else we no longer exist…praying we can get along…and do good…

      • tonybigs

        ???

      • Yo Mamma

        See here you are shoving your perverted ‘truth’ down the throats of everything else.

        Say I HOPE

        Rather that I PRAY

        Praying is not a commandment

        It similar to your need to see idols. Its too difficult to imagine a religion with a symbol. Just too tough for you. Thats why you wanted the golden calf. Need stuff. Then God Creator gave us the Ark. A symbol, wowo, happy now? No you need a man on a stick. Happy now? Sure am….

  • BlackBeaver

    Sad that Mr. Beck writes such a touching, common- sense message to us about uniting around our shared values and so many who comment seem to have missed the point. So many divisive comments….

    • Ryan Hitchens

      Hypocrisy just riles folks up it seems.

  • Guest

    1 Corinthians 7:23 comes to mind and also Proverbs 22:16

  • Janis Pride

    Glen, thank you for being willing to step outside the box and emphasize how important it is to stop letting titles and names describe the followers of Jesus Christ, and to underscore the importance of common ground in Christ. I so long for the days when names like Baptist, catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Mormon, etc. no longer divide us, but that our unity is finally realized by our love for one another and for God.

  • lisalake

    I can’t/won’t even comment on this… so much to say, but speechless.

    • Ryan Hitchens

      Yeah…it’s such complete bullcrap and hypocrisy.

    Mark 3:24-25 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

    Romans 16:17-18 New International Version (NIV)

    17 I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

    Ephesians 4:15-16
    Instead, speaking the truth in LOVE, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held TOGETHER by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

    *We need to be united in love, a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand, remember the civil war in our country.

    Romans 12:21New International Version (NIV)
    21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Martin Luther King Jr said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”Read more athttp://www.brainyquote.com/quo…

    Matthew 5:43-48New International Version (NIV)
    Love for Enemies
    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    No Christian would be a dualist to say there are tow gods – one good and one bad. Satan/the serpent/Lucifer is not a god. He is a fallen angel of high rank. This is why he has power that made Mohammad think he was God.
