Glenn Beck. Noted author, theologian, broacaster and commentator apparently sees the Christian social justice movement in a different light than other believers. According to him, "[he]suggested any church promoting 'social justice' or 'economic justice' merely was using code words for Nazism and communism." (ABC News)
Other than ridicously smooshing two distinct (and philosophically oppository) political ideologies — communism and facism — Beck has neatly snipped Jesus Christ's mandate. He urges Christians who see their churches engaging in any such behaviour or even using the terminology to leave their communities of faith and attend elsewhere. In fact, he commands them to flee.
I don't know about you, but I certainly am no Nazi. Neither was Jesus.
Nor was Jesus a communist. The one passage in Acts describing the Early Believers of the Way sharing everything was a movement of the Spirit, not a political regime.
Busy man that he is, Beck recently spoke Liberty University's Commencement Ceremony on May 21, 2010. LU granted him a Honoury Doctorate in Humanities. Pardon me while I offer a hollow laugh. He inspired the graduates with words saying: "There is no such thing as too much information", "There is no book in the world that should not be read.
Read Scripture, Mr. Beck.
His godly message is a nest of vipers. I feel protected from attending Liberty University. I would have been ashamed to attend such an institution knowing what I live to serve Christ for, and have them host such misguided leader.
