More from the wolf himself

Glenn Beck expounding on Ephesians 6

I love that he exhorts people to read Ephesians. I wonder if he has read it, you know the parts where Paul reminds us that it is not works that save us...

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Eph 2:8-9)

I wonder if he has read that and realized that the mormon notion of works righteousness and self-righteousness runs in complete contradiction with Paul's words?

I wonder how many Christians, or at least church attenders, are sitting in the audience listening to him speak of praying in "the temple" and realizing that an earthly temple doesn't jive with the Bible they carry with them to church on Sunday? That he is talking about the Gospel of peace but the "gospel" his church proclaims is another gospel that cannot save and cannot bring peace between man and God? That he is teaching them about the armor of God but that his church teaches that God was once a man and that men can become gods?

Little wonder that the church is in such dire straits when pagan unbelievers teach Scripture to audiences that are unequipped and unaware that they are applauding a man who blasphemes God every time he goes in his precious temple.
