Glenn: The real miracle of Easter isn't the resurrection, it's the atonement

What does Glenn say when he stands up in front of his church to speak on Easter Sunday? On radio this morning, Glenn told the audience a little of what he shared about the difference between baptism and conversion, the miracle of the atonement, and the importance of courage.

Below is a rush transcript of this story:

GLENN: I spoke yesterday at church. When I'm in church, I'm really, really careful. I don't want anything to even come close to anything anybody can say, well, he was talking about politics. Nope. Nope. I'm not. So I just talked about the difference between baptism and conversion. And that the real miracle is conversion. Not baptism because Peter was baptized. You know Peter was baptized. Peter denied Christ three times. He wasn't converted. The real miracle is -- is not the resurrection, but the atonement. The getting rid of the sin. Taking away all the sin. But one place that's all taken away, what will you do with it? You have a brand-new fresh piece of paper, so what is it you will do with your life? And getting up off the floor is the hard part. And what I was trying to say through all that was, we're going to need courage. Forget baptism. That's the first step. Conversion. Can you imagine when Paul was walked down the street as Saul. I don't know what it is with Jesus changing everybody's name. It's like he's got some, you know, attention deficit disorder, and he's like, Paul, no, it's Saul. Right, Paul. Listen. I want to talk to you about something.

But can you imagine, here's Saul walking down the road, and Jesus comes to him. Now he's walking down the road. He will persecute people. When Stephen is stoned to death and killed, this is such a horrific scene in the Bible. Stephen is an apostle and he's talking to them, and all he does is say, hey, guys, let me just tell you your history. Can I tell you your history? Because every time we as a people see a prophet, we kill them. And that's our history. And let me tell you, well, that just inflames the crowd. Saul is in that crowd. Do you know what he says in the crowd, Pat?

PAT: No.

GLENN: So he's standing in the crowd and they're starting to stone Stephen. They're starting to beat him to death and stone him. And Saul is there egging everybody on. And he looks at one of them and says, I'm paraphrasing, but, you don't want to get blood on your clothes. Let me hold your coat. Get him. He's holding people's cloaks.

He saying, you don't want to get blood on that. I'll hold it for you. You go get him. Now, imagine when he's walking down the highway and Jesus comes to him and just says, Saul, why do you persecute me? And he's converted. No baptism. He didn't have the forgiveness of sins yet. He has that weight. So he's converted in the road. Oh, my gosh. This is true. I'm on the wrong side. Imagine the weight that he had of, here let me hold your coat. You don't want to get blood on that. Get them. And yet, he got up off the road and he did what he had to do. Crucified upside down because he wasn't worthy of being crucified the way the Lord was.

It's time that Americans and Christians all over the world -- as I was talking about -- as I was talking about this, the only thing that I said was at the very end was, it's time for courage. It's time for courage. That was as close as I got to a political statement. It's time for courage. And the reason why is because there were Coptic Christians that had came to this talk. They had been invited. About 15 blocks from our church. So the pastors of the Coptic Christians came to our Easter service and I met with them afterward. And they said, why? Why isn't anyone paying attention? Why isn't anyone listening and looking at what is happening? We're being wiped out. Our families -- we're the oldest church in the world. We -- we had an apostle actually start us. Did you know that 70 percent of Egypt was Christian at one point? 70 percent. He's like, this is a Christian nation. We're being wiped out and slaughtered. And no one is paying attention. Why aren't we paying attention? Because the media has decided not to pay attention.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
