We can’t just go to church, we have to BE the church

A conversation Glenn calls one of the most important he’s ever been a part of aired last night on TV in its entirety. Just after Glenn and Mercury One volunteers handed out over 8 truckloads of food and toys to unaccompanied minors who crossed the border, the group of pastors and leaders had a frank conversation about compassion and service.

During the roundtable, which featured Alveda King, David Barton, and Pastor Broden along with local faith leaders from McAllen, TX, there was a lot of talk about the church's role in providing relief for the communities along the border.

One of the main points that came up during the discussion was that faith leaders needed to engage with the communities and be examples of service and compassion.

Robert Sanchez, a Texas pastor, said, "I see two miracles, the miracle of provision, and number two, the miracle of the beginning of revival. What is the softening of the hearts of United States? It is an awakening. It is revival. And revival is what we need."

And with all due respect to all of us, revival isn’t necessarily praying more at church anymore...revival is actually getting out there and getting the work done, us coming out to the community, us going out to the shelter, us going out to the bus station, us going out to the people in the colonias that are in need. Now, that’s revival, when us, we the church, get out there and get the work done like a lot of these respectful pastors around here have been doing it and that you have come to encourage us to do."

"And if our nation of United States of America understands that we have been inside our four walls of our churches too long, there are too many millions of people in this country in need. We need to get out of our church. We probably need to close our Sunday services and get out to the communities and not have church, but be the church," Pastor Sanchez said.

Others at the roundtable emphasized the importance of experience to learn compassion.

Jamie Gutierrez of Luz Para Las Naciones said "You know, there’s something you can’t exchange, it’s experience. How do we get people motivated? Experience. I can’t go and tell you how great God is if you can’t feel it. I can’t tell you such of a big problem that we have if I don’t go and feel it. Compassion comes out of that."

"When you see that kid, when you see the kid without no tennis shoes, something happens inside of you," he said.

At the end of the roundtable, Glenn looked for answers to even bigger questions.  It's not just about finding compassion and mercy for the children who have crossed over, but also seeking justice and fighting the evil driving people from their homes. How do we stop the cartels who are feeding so much violence and chaos in Mexico and at the border? How do you defeat the evil on the border?

"What’s happening with the children and with all humans here is beyond understanding, but the evil on the other side, the evil of the cartels is overwhelming," Glenn said, fighting back tears. "Who can dump little children off in the middle of the woods?  Who could dump a quadriplegic and leave him on the side of a river?  How do we deal with the evil that is happening as well?"

Alveda King said that it ultimately falls on the leaders of the faith community to be the example, not only within their congregation but to the world at large. She said, "We are the standard.  See, now that’s where the responsibility really does come back to us.  We are the standard.  And it was then correctly stated by every minister here, the church is not four walls and a steeple.  It’s okay to have that, but we are the standard."

"We can’t feel that it’s hopeless.  We are not a people without hope.  We are not without hope.  Jesus did not shed his blood for nothing," she said.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
