Religious Freedom Part IV: The Easter Story

Part IV: The Easter Story

They say time itself does not exist as we know and understand it. Time is a way for us to find out where we have been, where we are now and where we are headed. Today, we’re going on a journey, back in time to the most important moment in human history.

We travel back to a time before radio and TV, back past the signing of the Declaration of Independence, past the Age of Enlightenment, before Martin Luther hung his protests on the church doors, before Columbus rediscovered the fact that the world was round, we go past Newton, Galileo, the Dark Ages, the Crusades, back to a time before books, when most of the world couldn’t read or write and history was oral.

We leave this world for a seemingly simple one, yet brutal beyond our understanding. It’s approximately 29 of the common era, and we stop at a small walled city in the Middle East, just a few of days before Passover.

While eleven of his disciples slept, Jesus couldn’t, for he knew. He was in a garden in prayer, praying so hard about what he knew was about to come, praying so hard that blood actually dripped from his pores in place of sweat. Returning to his disciples, Jesus found the twelfth one had betrayed him — and his path toward the Crucifixion was laid out.

On that fateful day, despite having been found guiltless by the Governor of the land, the people shouted for his crucifixion. Mocking the Son of God, Roman soldiers placed a crown of thorns on the King of the Jews and whipped and scourged him, tearing his flesh, trying to break his spirit.

While criminals hung by his side, bound by rope, Jesus was nailed to his cross – through the hands, the wrists and feet. One criminal demanded Jesus free them, if indeed he truly was the Son of God. In a moment of humanity, Christ called out in agony.

“My Father, my Father, why have you forsaken me?”

The sky grew dark. It was approaching 3 o’clock on a Friday afternoon, when Jesus, the carpenter from Nazareth, spoke once more, saying his last words, “It is finished.”

Today, people all over the world thank that lone carpenter for dying, dying on that Friday afternoon so we all may live again.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
