Who is Right between Religious Left Sojourners Jim Wallis and Mormon Cult Leader Glenn Beck
Who is right in the debate between the religious left Sojourners President and CEO Rev. Jim Wallis and Mormon cult member Glenn Beck? Last week, Glenn Beck called for a boycott of churches that use "code words" like "social justice," which he equated to communism and fascism. He later amended that code as referring to "big government."
I did a 5 part series in December that made the case Mormon's Mitt Romney and Glenn Beck are trying to fulfill Mormon prophecy by turning the United States into a Mormon theocracy. Think I am out of my mind? You can find this series in the Daily Devotional Archives on the Liveprayer.com website by typing in keyword Beck.
As I also warned you years ago, Beck is using his fame and fortune as a right wing political commentator on radio and TV to help lead people to his satanic Mormon cult. With the better part of two full generations having never been to church, those who agree with Beck's political ideology are prime candidates to be proselytized into the Mormon cult. With his increasing fame and impact on millions of lives, he gravitates more and more to "faith," which to him is the false teaching of Joey Smith's Mormon cult!
Wallis responded to Beck's comment on social justice by saying, "Beck says Christians should leave their social justice churches, so I say Christians should leave Glenn Beck. I don't know if Beck is just strange, just trying to be controversial, or just trying to make money. But in any case, what he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show. His show should now be in the same category as Howard Stern. Stern practices pornography and Beck denies the central teachings of Jesus and the Bible. So Christians should stop watching the Glenn Beck show and pray for him and Howard Stern.
Wallis is a longtime socialist advocate and founder of a far-left magazine, Sojourners, that has championed communist causes. He currently serves on Obama's White House Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He reportedly is a spiritual adviser to Obama and has known the President for years. Wallis began his activism as a protester and then later Michigan leader of the Students for a Democratic Society, the 1960s anti-war group from which Bill Ayers' Weatherman domestic terrorist organization splintered
I have warned you many times in the past about Jim Wallis. He is part of the new and emerging "Christian left" that men like Rick Warren are part of. The "religious left" is a relatively new term so you may not be familiar with it. That is why I felt it was so critical to take the time today to insure you not only understood what it means, but who actually makes up this new group of people. Forty years ago, this group didn't even exist. They have actually evolved and grown tremendously over the past decade. The "religious left" is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals. Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the "religious right" or the "Christian right." The "Christian right" is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political issues.
These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage, family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive to remove God from the public square. Those in the "religious left" actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like welfare, and education, and....HEALTHCARE!
There is nothing wrong with pursing these noble social issues, Believers should be more involved on those fronts. The problem with this group is their anti-Biblical position on the key spiritual issues of our day and their involvement in these ecumenical movements that require you to set aside the Absolute Truths of the Bible.
How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to support the legalized slaughter of over 4,000 innocent babies every day? How can you say you are a person of faith, yet vote to redefine God's Holy Institution of Marriage? How can you say you are a person of faith, yet support special rights for people who have chosen to engage in perverted sex acts God calls an abomination, including their ability to adopt children into their deviant lifestyle?
I guess the real question becomes, what is their faith really in? It is inconsistent to say you are person of faith yet continually take a stand in complete opposition to God's Word. Jesus said that if you love Me, you will obey Me. That means His Word. Of course, those in the "religious left" has been born out of the liberal "churches" of our day who make a mockery of Christ as they operate in open rebellion to the Truth of the Bible while claiming to be followers of Christ.
They support the legalized slaughter of babies, redefining marriage to include men with men and women with women, perverting the family by brining children into homes with homosexual parents, and embrace ecumenical fellowships with all of the cults and false religions of the world. They deny the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, have rejected God's Word for the Absolute Truth it represents, and have bought into the lie of the world that there are "many roads that lead to God." These are the people who make up the "religious left!"
I love you and care about you so much. The bottom line, both Wallis and Beck are WRONG!!! To Beck, social justice means something nefarious when in fact it is supported by the very Bible Beck rejects for the Book of Mormon. To Wallis, it is a perversion of the Gospel since the Bible DOES teach social justice, but it also teaches personal responsibility. You can't pick and choose what you beleive, since God has already given us the Truth in the Bible. As Christians we must care about our fellow man. However, you can't stand for social justice and NOT stand for life, marriage, cry out against sexual perversion like homosexuality, and other key social issues that Wallis and those in the religious left take an anti-Biblcial position on.
Glenn Beck is easily identified as an enemy of the God of the bible for his free will choice to follow the teachings of the satanic Mormon cult. Jim Wallis is even more dangerous since he identifies himself as a Christian, yet refuses to embrace the Absolute Truth of the Bible. In this culture we live in in the year 2010, as the Truth of the Bible has been watered down, and the cults and false religions flourish, now more than ever true followers of Jesus Christ MUST stand up and be heard!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
