Evangelicals Unite With Glenn Beck’s New Age Mormonism

On Crosstalk America yesterday, February 28, 2011, guest host

Brannon Howse gives details concerning a recent Glenn Beck program that he believes provides good evidence of a major shift taking place within evangelicalism.

He noted how German Christians began to set aside their theology and doctrine and began to embrace the higher criticism of Julius Wellhausen who believed that human reason was above the Bible.  Eventually they united under a bishop hand-picked by Adolph Hitler.

Brannon believes that a similar movement is happening today as many evangelical Christians question the authority of Scripture via philosophies like theistic evolution, mysticism, gnosticism, post-modernism and uncritical tolerance.  It’s within this questioning atmosphere that some evangelical Christian leaders are creating allegiances with individuals like Beck, who embrace an alternative worldview, in an effort to supposedly storm the gates of Hell.

In support of this premise, Brannon presented audio clips from Glenn Beck’s program that aired this past Friday, a program that featured Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Historian David Barton, James Robison, and former Vietnam Vet Dave Roever.  Brannon noted that if we’re going to reclaim America, it won’t be accomplished by setting aside our theology and doctrine and becoming more ecumenical; instead what we must do is reclaim our churches and preach the gospel.

    What do you make of Beck’s recent announcement he met with Billy Graham and Graham told him people are basically good?

      Billy, I think its another sad reflection on the declining spiritual condition of this country and of evangelicalism. There is certainly nothing wrong in Beck and Graham meeting, and I will admit I am still researching to find more detail on what they actually said in their discussions. However, in the spiritual realm, considering the comments attributed to Beck:

      “My message to you is we must come together. Evil has — the left has stood — is standing now with profound and clear evil and they’ve connected from evil all the way to the average Democrat and everything in between.”
      “And we are sitting here arguing with each other over, well, how do you mean that exactly? Well, what exactly do you believe in religion, et cetera, et cetera? While none of us can sacrifice what we believe as an individual, we must stand together with those who believe in God and that God endows each individual with the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

      With all due respect to Billy Graham, I would say that the only spiritual discussion he could have with Beck to to call him to repentance, to deny Mormonism as the cult that it is and turn to the true and living Savior. That’s it! (Also see our posts on Rev. Graham and Robert Schuller.)

      Unfortunately, in far too many instances, the opposite happens; for the sake avoiding confrontation and just being nice, most of those that have partnered with Beck by appearing on his TV program (and I’m not saying that Rev. Graham has entered into a partnership with Beck.) appear to be star-struck by his celebrity and are more satisfied to have the face-time and publicity on FOX News than speak the truth.

      I could not and would not be able to sit with Beck in a public forum and simply discuss the religious heritage of America for example and do so with a clear conscience, without first noting that Beck does not serve the true God of Scripture.

      If you find more information on the details of their discussions, please send them to me.
