Leftist Christians Go After Glenn Beck

Yesterday the Associated Baptist Press published an article by “Jim Wallis, a politically progressive evangelical,” who is also the CEO and editor in chief at the left-leaning, Sojourners. The article by Wallis demands that his readers and all Christians stop watching the Glenn Beck because “Beck denies the central teachings of Jesus and the Bible!”

I earned my Masters in Theology in 1999 and I watch Glenn Beck daily. I’ve never heard Beck deny the central teachings of Jesus and the Bible! It appears that the “progressive” Mr. Wallis is fabricating his charges against Beck out of sheer leftist desperation.

Anyone who has ever bothered to honestly research the origins of the concept of “social justice,” as taught within most mainline and some evangelical denominations of the Christian church, understands that that it is closely tied to Marxist Liberation Theology. It is a concept that has little to do with Christian charity or justice and everything to do with radical leftist revolutionary political change.

Make no mistake; Glenn Beck is absolutely correct in stating that “social justice” is a code word" for communism and Nazism.

Three years ago I wrote, Obama’s Marxist Liberation Theology ChurchIn that article, which I strongly suggest that you read, I’ve quoted from James H. Cone, one of the primary authors of Black Liberation Theology. Additionally I’ve summarized and provided a link to an excellent overview of the grave dangers of Liberation Theology written in 1984 by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI).

Once you’ve read this short article and the provided links you’ll have no doubt as to who is telling the truth.

God bless and protect Glenn Beck!

I believe the basis for the gentleman's comments lie in the generally accepted premise that Beck is a Mormon.

As such, his theology is at odds with Christian dogma.

However, that does not make his politics suspect.

This is an old trick that uses what appears to be good logic to make a good point while failing the test of both logic and theology.

They don't like what Beck says and Beck is a Mormon so his views ought to be rejected - not because they are false but because a Mormon is espousing them.

This is patently absurd.

Truth, regardless of who is teaching it, remains Truth. If we permit this argument to go unchallenged, it can be claimed with with equal validity that if Beck were to say "2+2=4" we should reject that premise as well.

The author is starting with a desired conclusion and engineering an argument designed to arrive there as opposed to digesting the data and letting it take him to the logical conclusion in spite of whether he likes that destination or not.

Great article!

Beck telling Christians to leave their churches (who is he to even suggest such a thing) if their churches preach the teachings of Jesus about social justice makes Beck worth a double take. Nothing to do with him being Mormon. Everything to do with him being a egomaniac who has no ideas what the real teachings of Jesus are - and also the teachings of the Mormon church.

Lutheran Pastor in Southeast MI:
After reading this post which I just came across, I wonder if anyone would be interested in some timely email correspondence with the Bishop of the Southeast MI Synod ELCA about his & our Synod's intentional endorsement and promotion of the US Social Forum event coming to Detroit at the end of June. It is illustrative how how leftist the ELCA and our Synod has become in embracing social justice causes, which is exactly what Glenn Beck warned against!
