Just read this blog from Russell Moore, a professor and theologian from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary on the role of Glen Beck in American politics and Christianity. His insights made me think deeply as I considered the implications of religion and politics and the influence the tie can have on the advancing of the Gospel. Beck is a Mormon, which teaches a false Gospel with a different Jesus than the one found in the Bible. Moore points out that Beck has become a person who is rallying evangelicals to revivalism, which means that many in Christianity are seeing a person who believes in a false Gospel as a spiritual leader, and he is right that this is a problem. I would encourage you to read this article and think about what Moore says about the Gospel.
A note about another blog I posted about Albert Pujols at this rally. I did post the video of his speech, and do think he was clear and did a good job articulating the Gospel, so I hope I am not being contradictory in these two posts. But Moore’s post really made me think.
