Glenn on Glenn: You are such an egomaniac!

This morning on radio Glenn talked about his church experience in Utah yesterday, a cautionary tale about listening when God speaks. Glenn believed he was being led to do something a bit unusual, but resisted to urge, referring to himself as an ‘egomaniac’ if he were to follow through. What was the task and what happened?

Sunday morning, Glenn was ready to walk out there door when he felt a prompting to bring a suitcase he has with a predecessor to the Emancipation Proclamation, Joseph Smith’s pocket watch, and Walt Disney’s Disneyland Prospectus.

“I'm getting ready to go to church and I think, ‘Bring the suitcase because the Lincoln thing should be shared.’ And I immediately think, what kind of egomaniac are you?” Glenn said. “And so I rejected it immediately. And then I thought about it again and I thought, ‘What?’ An egomaniac. What am I going to ‑‑ I'm not going to say anything. I completely dismiss it,”

“As I'm getting ready to walk out, that suitcase is there, security is still at the house and that suitcase is still there and I look at it and I think, just put it in the car and lock it in the car. And I'm thinking, well, that's even, that's more ridiculous. It's safer here at the house; why would it ‑‑ so anyway, I reject it.”

But when Glenn got to church, the Bishop came up asked asked him to be the special guest speaker for the service. Glenn quickly tried to text his security team to see if they could get the suitcase so he could talk about it, but no one could get it in time.

Without the suitcase, Glenn started to write a short little speech. However, the person who was supposed to speak in front of him ended up saying everything he wrote down.

"I just start writing a little speech. Well, somebody gets up before me and starts talking, and he fills the whole space. But here's what happened: He fills the space and I point to Tania. As he's saying stuff, I point to Tania and I'm like, look what he's saying. I just wrote that down. I was going to say that. He said something else and I pointed to Tania and I'm like, 'I was going to say that.'" Glenn said.

"Everything that he was saying I was going to cover. It ends up, I didn't speak. They ran out of time. So I didn't speak," he said.

"I go home. I wrote a note to the bishop and I said, I've learned an important lesson here, of arrogance and obedience. And it's the opposite lesson I thought I was going to learn," Glenn explained. "I'm arrogant because my mind is not God's mind. I have no idea. I heard it twice ‑‑ I actually heard it three times: Go put that in the car. And I didn't do it. Arrogance and obedience."

But why is this lesson so important now? Glenn said we're approaching what he believes are "emergency times" when you'll hear messages from Him and you'll need to act because others are depending on you.

"Here's the thing, however: I believe we're entering an emergency time. I believe we're headed for really tough times and this is nothing new coming from me, but I believe we're headed for tough times, and just like your dad, if the house is on fire, your dad will say to you, 'Go run and go get the neighbor.' He doesn't want you to say, 'Well, why? What is the neighbor going to do?' Go get the neighbor! Dad knows what he's doing to put the fire out. The kids don't necessarily understand that. Dad has no time for us to here it. 'Well, son, here's what I'm going to...' 'Go get the damn neighbor!' Is what Dad is saying. Go pick that up and put it in your car.' 'But Dad, why are we going to ‑‑ they're not going to ask me to...' 'Go pick it up and put it in your car.'"

"There's going to come a time when things make absolutely no sense to you at all. Do it. Because there is someone else that is depending on you doing it. And the other lesson is, he had somebody else deliver the message that he told me to deliver. There's somebody else. He's not going to be frustrated. Somebody else will do it. Don't be the one that dropped the ball," Glenn said.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
