One of things I try to be in life is “an equal opportunity offender.”
In that spirit, I am going to poke the sacred cow of Glenn Beck. I am a Pentecostal pastor who was raised conservative (politically as well as theologically). I am still more conservative politically than liberal, but I have no qualms with calling things out.
So, I am pasting SOCIAL JUSTICE here to make sure you RUN from me (if you are a follower of Glenn Beck)!
Mr. Beck, need I remind you that other useful words aren’t in the Bible? Like TRINITY? (But being a Mormon, I’m not sure if he realizes what that term is, either.)
No code words. SOCIAL JUSTICE.
Follow Jesus. Follow the power of the Word of God. You may need to alert Glenn Beck that you are staying with your church while you make sure the poor are taken care of in your city.
In the words of the First Things blog: “But Beck is a special case: He is too prone to say any dumb thing that pops into his head and too ignorant about history and religion to truly understand the implications of his statement.”
