  1. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t understand what Beck’s point was supposed to be. Restoring honor, getting back to God.
    What does that stuff even mean?

  2. K,
    Beck professes to want to “restore honor” to the USA, presumably honor that the country has lost due to its heading down the road to Socialism/Big Government/Fascism/Liberalism etc. He is proposing that this can be accomplished by “getting back to God” as a country, apparently meaning embracing any sort of religious beliefs one wants.

    Last time I checked, Contemporary Judaism, Mormonism, and Paganism were not even compatible with each other, let alone with Christianity. It seems that “getting back to God” is Beck’s term for “embracing religious pluralism in order to achieve political goals.”

  3. TSL,
    You mention Contemporary Judaism. What would you say is the difference between “Contemporary Judaism” and, I guess I’ll say, Historical/Traditional Judaism? I’m just wondering.
    I watched Glenn Beck’s opening speech of “Restore Honor” day. I am very concerned of how many Christians are missing Glenn’s deeper message. It sounds like he is saying that all faiths, if you will, lead to God. Of course, this message is nothing new. I can certainly sympathize with Glenn’s discouragement of where this country is heading, but this is a serious problem with Christians aligning themselves side by side with heresy.

  4. By “Contemporary Judaism,” I meant the false Judaism that rejects Jesus as Messiah. I say “false” Judaism, because, as Romans 2:28-29 says,“no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter.”

    On the other hand, as Edith Schaeffer noted well, Christianity is Jewish. That is, true Judaism, based on the Old Testament, and practiced by many Jews at the time of Christ, is perfectly compatible with Christianity. Those Jews looked forward to a Messiah, and when He arrived, they received Him. They did not stop abandon their religion for a new one, they merely continued in the logical path in which they were already walking.
