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.

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."
