With TBN we’re not dealing with actual Christian television; and I’m all for people avoiding the Trinity Blasphemy Network, Glenn Beck or no Glenn Beck. More on that in a moment.

God be praised, for those who were concerned, two donors have already stepped up and covered about half of what we lost when a couple of large one-time gifts weren’t forthcoming this year.

As a leading work in the developing mission field of online apologetics and discernment it’s part of my job here at Apprising Ministries to make you aware of what’s going on as this spiritual darkness grows.

I have to laugh at my critics who say people like me have no effect with our “blogs.” Really; then how whould they ever have even heard of a pastor-teacher from a little rural town in New Hampshire? Yeah, they just might want to meditate upon that one.

Even Dr. Tony JonesFuller Theological Seminary prof and leading progressive/theologian within the neo-liberal cult operating inside the Emerging Church, admitted:

Good; that’s a few less people whose faith won’t be shipwrecked, e.g. because Tony Jones Argues For Open Marriage And Polyamory and Tony Jones Worships A Demon. Way to go FTS to be using this wolf in sheep’s clothing to teach a Doctor of Ministry course in *cough* Christian Spirituality. Moving along…

One of the issues I’m pointing out for you is the growing syncretism spreading throughout spiritually spineless evanjellyfish. Pouty postmodernism has made it so many within the visible church are reluctant (scared?) to make any type of stand theologically, which allows plenty of food for wolves.

It’s also leading to a lot of odd partnerships and blurring of Christian distinctives. In his Glenn Beck Affiliation Leads to Calls for Boycott of Christian TV’s TBN yesterday Christian Post contributor Vincent Funaro tells us:, an interactive Christian website with over 2.4 million subscribers, is calling for a boycott of Christian TV network TBN, according to a press release.

Leaving aside this “Live Prayer Church” of Bill Keller Ministries, Christians should be boycotting that haven of heretics already because it’s a honeycomb for the Word Faith movement. Funaro tells us the call for boycott in this case came after Keller, who apparently ignored that, noticed:

prominent Christian leaders such as Pastor John Hagee and David Barton expressed their support for Glenn Beck’s “restoring courage” campaign on the network. (Online source)

While not in agreement with either quasi-prosperity preacher John Hagee or the NAR’s selective-historian David Barton, they’re hardly “prominent” leaders outside their specific areas. That aside, the subject at hand is Glenn Beck’s Restoring Courage—Israel.

In the melodramatic video below, at 2:15 in you’ll hear Beck tells us that he wants us to go to inside the walls of Jerusalem and “stand with people of all faiths.” Then at 3:36 Beck announces, “if it be His will, I will die right alongside my brother.” Earlier in the video Beck tells us we will see “miracles.”

This all puts us squarely in the area of religion; with people of all faiths involved, the question then becomes: Which God is to get credit for them? Beck’s Mormon god, a resurrected man named Elohim aka “Heavenly Father?” Would it be the impersonal, capricious, and unknowable Muslim god Allah?

What “brothers” will Beck be standing with? This is why the Christian cannot take part in these kinds of religious endeavors, no matter how noble they may appear. God’s Word is crystal clear on the subject:

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols?

For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

CP contributor Funaro then goes on to remind us:

Glenn Beck, a professed Mormon, frequently identifies himself with other religious people such as Christians, feeling they all have similar values and can work together on “common interests.”

However, to believers like Keller, this is deceitful behavior since he believes Mormonism is a satanic cult or a counterfeit form of Christianity, and that true believers should not align themselves with these types of faiths. (Online source)

Not knowing how much Funaro knows about the historic orthodox Christian faith and non-Christian cults, and since I began in ministry evangelizing cultists, I’ll bring a bit more clarity to the above. Glenn Beck is a member in good standing with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).

Previously in The “God” Of Glenn Beck and The “Jesus” Of Glenn Beck I showed you what the LDS Church, to which Beck belongs, believes about the LORD God Almighty and Christ Jesus our Lord. Ala 2 Corinthians 11:4 it is a different god entirely and another savior entirely, which really none at all.

I’ve already shown you what the Scripture says about Christians aligning themselves in religious ventures with unbelieving pagans, which is precisely how God’s Word refers to them — what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons (1 Corinthians 10:20).

It’s as Christine Pack said in her fine post “Three Paths to God”? Another Reason that Glenn Beck Is A Problem:

A note to my fellow Christians: Is it clear now that Glenn Beck, as kind and well-meaning has he appears to be, must be evangelized and prayed for…..not linked with in spiritual endeavors[.] (Online source)

This all couldn’t be any clearer; if you believe the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word.
