Which will you choose: Life or Death?

The Christian Holocaust being carried out by ISIS. The Iran nuclear treaty that jeopardizes the future of Israel. The Planned Parenthood scandal that sees baby parts being sold on a petri dish. God could not be making it any clearer on these three stories - do we choose life or do we choose death?

Listen in the opening monologue of today's podcast:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

Glenn: I was talking to the Kendrick brothers on television and Louie Gohmert. We had a fascinating conversation off the air. Kendrick brothers are the guys that made the made Fireproof. They just made a brand-new movie called War Room. I saw the movie last night with my family. It is fantastic. Really, really good. And the movie that America really needs to see.

But we were talking with Louie Gohmert. And one of the Kendrick brothers said to me, do you think something is coming here in September? And Louie kind of looked up. And I said, why do you say that? He said, I don't know. I just feel like it is.

And I said, I do. I do. I think something -- whether September, I don't know. I just feel like something -- I really truly believe that we have a red line put in front of us. And I've said this before on the air. But I want you to really hear this. Because I think this is important. And I don't mean it as a country. I mean it as you as an individual and you as a family. I think we have been given a few red lines, three of them, to be specific. And it all revolves around what happened to Moses.

Moses comes out. You know, where is your Moses now? And he goes up. And they make the golden calf. And Charlton Heston throws them down, and they all kind of fall in. Then he says, you have to choose. This mountain is life. This mountain is death. Choose today. Life or death.

Who do you serve? Life or death. That was a really important moment in the Moses story. Okay?

I think that's exactly what's happening to us right now on three fronts: One, ISIS. It's why we're standing on 8/28. Two of these are why we're standing. First one is ISIS.

We are being told to pretty much just ignore them. We're not really going after them at all. We have troops engaged all around the world. But are we really engaged over there? Not really. And we're ignoring them. And what's happening?

Today theres a new video that came out from ISIS where they buried bombs and put people on them kneeling. Now, listen. Think about any of those ISIS videos. If you've never seen the video, I urge you to watch them. Not for the violence, but for the example.

I have not seen one single ISIS video where any of the people are begging for their life. They're not crying. They don't even -- they look frightened, but they -- they look brave in their -- I mean, they look as frightened -- the bravest man in the world would look right before he died. All of them are mumbling something. I would imagine prayers. These guys are amazing. They just released a new ISIS video where they planted a bomb underneath each person that was going to be beheaded. And as soon as they move, they blow up. I mean, it's like 14-year-old boys are coming up with this. It's like a video game to these guys. So we're being told, just ignore them. Christians are being slaughtered. This is the biggest genocide of Christians since the church began after Jesus' death. Do you hear that? They're wiping out all of the Christians in the Middle East and we're not doing anything.

So we are choosing death. By our silence, we are choosing death. The next one is Iran.

41 percent of Democrats support the president's bill. Only 41 percent. Republicans, what is it? It's got to be two. But yet, what is our Congress doing? What is our administration doing? And what have we done to make sure that Congress has the cojones to stand up? What have you done to support Chuck Schumer? Democrats what have you done? Have you risen up to support him? No. Have we? No.

We are choosing -- we're being told, choose Israel or Iran. And we are choosing Iran. Israel, life. Iran, death. Choose.

And then, you know, something that I don't think -- I really truly believe that God is up there going, I can't make it any more clear. There's no way to make clearer. I've got a petri dish with a pile of baby parts. Choose today: Life or the culture of death. Which do you want?

I believe we are sitting at the red line. I believe we are sitting at that Moses moment. Choose you today, who will you serve? Choose today, light or dark. Life or death. Which will it be America? And I'm not talking about changing policy. I am talking about you sitting down at your dinner table and saying to your family today, those three things. Which do we choose? Which will we stand for? Which -- will we be the people that hide people in our basement because we believe in life and we will stand against the evil of the world? Will we stop just skating over the surface?

I truly believe that's coming. If you don't do it, God help us. No, he won't, actually. He won't.

I believe he can do no more for this country if we choose death on those three things. We will get the full ramification of those three things. A culture from Planned Parenthood. A culture of death and destruction. We will lose the blessings of choosing Iran over Israel. And we will have a global caliphate spread like nobody's business. And Christians all around the world will be slaughtered. As well as Jews, homosexuals, and those Muslims who aren't Muslim enough.

I believe we are on the verge of catastrophe, and we are being asked right now as individuals: Choose. This must be a visible moment for you to raise your hand and say, I stand with life. Not all black lives matter. All life matters. Iranian life and Jewish life. Muslim life and Christian life. Atheist life, Christian life. Homosexual life. All life matters.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
