Restoring Courage will be "the same kind of feel that you experienced" at Restoring Honor, Beck said, "except I will tell you: much more profound. This is a life-changing, life-altering event." Beck even said that the rally would "define" its participants: "This will be a -- I think, a pinnacle moment in your life. It will define you. In the end, this event will define you." Beck continued the hyperbole on his TV show today, paraphrasing the Gettysburg Address to say that at his rally in Jerusalem, "possibly for the first time in man's history, God will remember and make note of what we do there."
While calling attention to the schemes of the Muslim peoples as they try to “wipe Israel off the map” is a good thing, and Beck may, it could be argued, making wise use of his resources, there is a danger implicit in what he does, and I think a double goal. Why do I say these things? Isn’t Beck a good man, calling people back to man and to God? Well yes and no. Beck identifies with many conservative values socially and politically, but Beck is a non-apologetic Mormon, who does not believe the Bible’s revelation of the blessed Redeemer.
Today in our society, there is a large ignorance of the teachings of the Bible, and with the close terminology and beliefs, many assume Mormonism is a Christian religion. But the religion of Mormonism contains a different gospel than the gospel of salvation by grace through faith alone, the famous creed of the Protestant Reformation. The Mormon gospel is works based , keeping the celestial law. They believe that it a person is “saved by grace through faith, after you’ve done all you can do.”
“An inheritance in this glorious kingdom [the Celestial Kingdom] is gained by complete obedience to gospel or celestial law…By devotion and faithfulness, by enduring to the end in righteousness and obedience, it is then possible to merit a celestial reward” (Bruce R. McKonkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1966, p. 116).
Mormons believe that all people have pre-existed as spirit-children, and as Mike Huckabee rightly pointed out, they believe that Jesus and Lucifer were brothers, sons of Father and mother God. Mormons teach that humans can earn their divinity, of which Jesus is our model and example. From there, when mormons keep the celestial law, and pass into celestial heaven where they will rule and populate their own planet. Since they do not believe that Christ is the co-eternal second person of the Trinity, they do not esteem the cross of the crucified and Risen Lord Jesus Christ upon which the salvation of elect humanity was won.
What of the social agenda? Glenn Beck holds values and priorities concerning the national values that mirror much of conservative Christians, though not all. Mormons hold that the U.S. constitution is divinely inspired (much as the Bible, though they see the Bible as corrupted, much like Muslims). MormonWiki.org tells us about the White Horse prophecy:
The Saints [i.e. Mormons] Will Yet Save the Constitution-When the day comes in which the Kingdom of God will bear rule, the flag of the United States will proudly flutter unsullied on the flagstaff of liberty and equal rights, without a spot to sully its fair surface; the glorious flag our fathers have bequeathed to us will then be unfurled to the breeze by those who have power to hoist it aloft and defend its sanctity. (JOD 2:317).
The Muslims final goal of the Islamic religion is, after genocidally wiping out the Jew, to bring about an worldwide Islamic Caliphate, instituting Sharia law over all lands. The remaining infidels who refuse to convert to Islam may be permitted, if they submit themselves, as history shows us, to a state of dhimmitude (see dhimmitude.org), or a protection tax.
This is similar to the goal of the Mormon faith. Being a Christian heresy, as Islam ultimately is, the end-goal of Mormonism is control of the United States, the most powerful nation on earth, and by implication, the rest of the world. But because Mormonism presents a different means of salvation, redefining it, as it were (as Islam does), the apostle Paul labels it as anathema (Gal. 1:8-9).
Let’s more closely examine some of the beliefs of Glenn Beck and his Mormon brethren:
1. We all pre-existed as spirit-children of Father God and Mother Goddess, and therefore are siblings, as Jesus and Lucifer
2. God the Father had extra-marital intercourse with the virgin Mary (adultery)
3. “Godhood” can be achieved by keeping the Mormon Celestial Law.
4. There are many gods. (i.e. Polytheism)
5. Jesus’ work on the cross was not sufficient for our “salvation.”
So while Beck seeks to reach the young, and reverse the pro-marxist teachings of our government schools, who are now by and large, anti-capitalist, he mingles with it his pagan, polytheistic views and beliefs of God and the bible. While not often promoting Mormonism directly, he is a non-apologetic Mormon who says that he is a ‘born-again’ Christian, thus confusing and leading astray many of our young people.
While Christians may sympathize with Beck politically, we must be careful to protect our children by teaching them the important distinction of this false religion and gospel that will send our kids to hell.
