    Mormons’ theology is based on First Century Christianity, not Fourth Century Creeds. For example, Mormon’s views on Baptism, Lay Ministry, the Trinity, Theosis, Grace vs. Works, the Divinity of Jesus Christ comport more closely with Early Christianity than any other denomination. And Mormons’ teenagers have been judged to “top the charts” in Christian Characteristics by a UNC-Chapel Hill study. Read about it here:

    Glenn may not subscribe to the Fourth Century Creeds, but he does believe in the New Testament Jesus Christ.

    Unfortunately, I am afraid it is you that is confused as to what a Christian is. I ask you, what un-Christian principle has Glenn asked anyone to follow? On his radio or TV shows, Glenn does not ask anyone to talk to Mormons or go to a Mormon Church or read a Book of Mormon. What is so un-Christian about asking Christians to be more active in the exercise of their own faiths? How is it that his absence of public promotion of his faith confusing to orthodox Christians? Glenn called for people to turn to God.. not the Mormon God or the Baptist God or Catholic God or Jewish God or Muslim God or one of the other 30,000 other sects’ God. He just asks to turn to God. So what is so confusing to you about that. Glenn didn’t ask which God you believe in. He just asked you to turn to him. Now if this is confusing to some Christians, I have to wonder. Are they confused because they don’t know which God Glenn wants them to turn to… Or is it really because, that these self proclaiming Christians have not turned to God in so long have they forgotten where to look? You claim that Glenn is “causing a nation full of confusion”. I submit that the nation was already confused but it has taken someone like Glenn to make it public knowledge. You say that you are “religiously afraid” of what Glenn is doing. I ask, why are you afraid of who or what someone else believes in? Your faith and that of “orthodox” Christians(whatever that means with thousands of sects) should not be so easily threatened simply because a Mormon asks you to focus on increasing your faith. Is this the measure that you would you to filter advice? If you are in church and some stranger runs in and yells, “Everyone! The church building is on fire you need to get out now!” Are you going to sit back and say, “Hey! Wait a minute! This guy is not a member of our congregation. Don’t listen to him! We can just wait here until someone we know comes in and tells us what is really going on!” Of course not, it would be ludicrous. In the story, the stranger doesn’t tell people where to go but that they aren’t safe staying where they are. If they are confused as to where to go is it the strangers’ fault. The same is true for Glenn. He shouldn’t have to tell you WHICH God to turn to.. You and ALL Christians should already know… and what could be so scary about that?

  3. Excellent response Daniel, and thanks for participating. Sure Glenn Beck talks about God, and Jesus, and salvation and all sorts of good Christian things. But what you have to remember is that HIS god, and HIS Jesus are NOT the God of the bible and the Jesus that is the only begotten Son of God. Therein lies the danger.

    Lots of lost people say and do good Christian things. Doing good does not make one a Christian. Telling others to do good does not make one a Christian. You said that “I” am the one confused. Sure, I have already admitted that. But the confussion is not in the God I believe in, but the God that Glann believes in.

    In Mormonism, their “god” lives on the planet Kolob in a far away land. Jesus is the half brother of Satin of all people, and the only reason that Jesus is our savior, is because His plan fo redemption for the inhabitants of this planet was better than the one posed by Satin before the “Counsel of the Gods”. Mormonism is so far from Christianity that it is not even in the same universe of discussion.

    The danger, as stated, is that GB will talk all day about God and Jesus and doing good things and unsuspsecting Christians and seekers of the real God will fall for his Christian words with different definitions and become victims of a Cult, all the while thinking that they are loving the real God of the bible and not some made-up farsical being that lives on the imaginary planet called Kolob.

    Your arguments about rushing to save the burning building is absurd. No where did I say don’t do good. All I’m asking is Who is Glenn Beck’s Jesus?? You can;t answer that question. Only Glenn Beck can.

  4. Daniel, are you a Mormon??
