    Glenn Beck seems to be one of the only ones standing up for Christ in the media. Do you think he is saved?

    He does say you need to believe in God, but thats about it. He was raised a Catholic, fell away, and converted to Mormonism thur his friend and co-worker Pat Gray.

    If he is a true Mormon then he is as lost as a goose. With that said, I do like to watch his show and agree with much of his commentary.

    He has mentioned on the air that he would rather be at home on Sundays, and the indication was that this was his custom so doubt he is all that committed to his "faith."

    Yeah, I saw it. He is a joke IMO.

    But I can't say weather he's "in or out"....that's above my pay grade.

    My mother-in-law watches him religiously, so I occasionally hear bits and pieces of his show. From what I've heard, it is a must avoid. His salvation, or the lack thereof, has nothing to do with it.

    Why would you say he is a joke? What has he said that is not true? I watch it everyday and I find nothing but the truth. THis administration is the most liberal/socialist in the history of this country. Beck is simply exposing them for what they are. The rest of the media is silent.

    If This Is True...

    ... please show me where you gleaned this info. Post the URL, to support your claim, I'd appreciate this very much.

    If he's Mormon, I'd have to agree that he is in a cult, and that would indicate that he's not saved.

    So, I'd like some proof of his Mormonism. Thanks.

    Really? Which Christ is he standing up for? The Mormon Christ or the Christian Christ? I just heard some audio of his address at Liberty and it was pretty pathetic.

    I'm sorry I don't have a URL or proof, other than hearing him say that He is a Mormon several times on his radio and tv show.

    I like Glenn Beck. I hope someday he finds the truth. My daughter-in-law
    had the veil lifted from her eyes, so I know it IS possible for a mormon
    to find the truth!

    Yeah, if you listen to his show at all, he says it all the time.

    When it comes to political and social commentary, he's dead on. But whenever he starts talking about spiritual things or twisting scriptures (which I don't believe he does intentionally, but out of ignorance), I just hit the fast forward button.

    By the way, if you were listening last week and heard his guest "Russ", the Vietnam vet who founded the 9/12 chapter in Delaware (912delawarepatriots.com), that's our chapter and Russ is a good friend of ours.

    Glen Beck is a must listen to. Forget his beliefs for now. His show on Tuesday was awesome. He's exposing how the Government is teaming up with Churches on the scam of global warming and how "social justice" is not what the gospel said it is but what the Goverment says it is.
    WHen the Goverment wants to become partners with Churches to promote social justice we need to look out. The early Church took care of the less fortunate themselves.

    Yeah, that's how I know he's a Mormon because I've heard him say so on the radio. So, I guess the proof that righteousdude 2 requested is in the mouth of two or three witnesses on the BB!

    I could care less about the nature of the man's salvation.

    But the phrase standing up for Christ odd. Do you have proof how Beck does this?

    I had to endure a bit of his show the other day and his language was terrible. He was actually swearing on television. Strange.
