Glenn Beck’s latest

Praying with Glenn!

Now good God-fearin’ red-blooded Americans can pray each morning with Glenn Beck and get a nugget of spiritual wisdom from Glenn to start their day!

So how many Christians are gathering in the morning to pray for America, prayer initiated by an unbeliever and blasphemer and done so with a "guest pastor", without the faintest notion of the implications of doing so? The fawning comments from people who are Beck fans are troubling and frankly border on being cultic. As I have said time and again, I expect many of them are in a church building on Sunday but are so lacking in basics doctrines of the faith that they don’t recognize that a) Glenn Beck is an unbeliever and b) when he speaks about God, it is not the same God spoken of in the pew Bible in front of them on Sunday. Too many people have received a lifetime of sermons and can’t recognize the difference between the Kingdom of God and America, between an unbeliever and a believer.

One can only imagine the outrage if this were spiritual thoughts and prayer led by a Muslim. Or even worse, if it was prayer and spiritual thoughts from some commie pinko lib’ral like Jim Wallis. Conservative Christians would be outraged. But Glenn Beck? That is apparently OK with way too many people. Beck is a far greater danger to the Gospel witness than Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens. A wolf that makes no pretense of being anything other than a wolf is easy to spot. It is the wolf who tries to clothe himself like a sheep that is the danger we are warned about in the Bible.
