‘It's a biblical thing to do’: David Barton offers a Biblical perspective on the border crisis debate

Earlier this year, David Barton endorsed Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk (R) in the race for Georgia’s 11th Congressional District. Loudermilk faces primary opposition from former Congressman Bob Barr, and during a debate earlier this week, Barr bizarrely attacked Loudermilk for accepting Barton’s endorsement.

Watch Barr’s remarks below:

Barr claims Barton has “has been roundly and uniformly criticized with facts for taking positions that are anti-Semitic [and] that are against women voting." Loudermilk, however, did not cave to the pressure and denounce Barton.

After Glenn offered a strong defense of his friend to open the radio program, Barton called in later in the show to discuss the criticism and the situation at the border.

Considering Glenn has personally traveled to Israel with Barton to several occasions and has seen the work he has done for the Jewish people first hand, the accusations are utter hogwash. While Glenn referred to Barr’s statement as “one of the most incredible things” he’s ever heard, Barton said he has been dealing with the same criticism for many years.

“You know, that is something that has been kept really active… by a bunch of Soros funded bloggers and groups,” Barton said. “And it's really disturbing that Bob Barr, who is portraying himself as conservative, is pulling this information down from Soros groups.”

Glenn then asked Barton to discuss the situation at the border and the differences between the legal issues the government must deal with and the humanitarian needs Glenn believes should be handled privately.

Barton said he “stands firmly,” with Glenn’s assessment of the crisis, and he offered further insight into what the Bible says about compassion and caring for the poor. Of the 205 versus pertaining to the topic, just one mentions the role of government. 204 speak to the responsibility and role of the churches and Synagogues.

“You mentioned this is a Christian thing to do. It's a biblical thing to do. There are 205 verses in the Bible that tell us to take care of the poor, to take care of needy, take care of those who have problems,” Barton said. “Out of 205 verses, the only thing that government is told to do is that when the poor come into court, make sure they get justice. Everything regarding their physical needs comes back to family and to the church or to the Synagogue.”

When you employ the idea of a hard head and warm heart, the political tension in this scenario begins to ease. As Barton explained, if he were to come across an individual lying in the middle of the road, he is not going to waste time asking how they got there – he is going to help.

“If I see someone lying in the middle of the road, I'm not going do ask how they got there or whether I'm facilitating them being there again,” he said. “ I'm going to meet their need. That's the simple bottom line to it.”

That is not to say, however, the law does not come into play.

“Ecclesiastes 7:11 says when a law is not enforced it encourages other lawbreakers,” he continued. “That's our problem not only with immigration law… That's our problem with the whole bunch of laws that we're not enforcing. And it's causing the same kinds of problems. So that's a politically area that has to be dealt with in the political realm.”

Ultimately, Barton believes it is quite dangerous for people to harden their hearts because of a political opinion.

“If you don't have that heart and compassion – if you harden your heart to needs because you think that's politically incorrect for your viewpoint,” Barton concluded, “then that is just not a good deal.”

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
