I have a curse that is the penchant for noticing patterns, trends, and the zeitgeist blowing through the culture. The spirit behind efforts, movements and populist sentiments that ring out across the land.
Since we fight a spiritual war against Evil in High Places, I tend to notice the spirit of commonality that exists to war upon the values and sacred beliefs we at one time cherished as a people in this nation.
Currently, we are embroiled in a bitter spiritual war that will inevitably lead to a physical one, and that has never become as evident as it has this past weekend as the rhetoric on the web, the hysteria of the rabid Left media goons and the jealous/hating zealots in the blogosphere are on full display.
Such vitriol always ends up leading to violence, whether it be a genocidal slaughter, or a civil war – the spiritual war transcends to the physical plane, and God’s people are once again embroiled in a bloody battle. It would be a mistake to ignore the spirits behind the war against God, Christianity and the call of the nation to repentance. Some of those spirits are clever enough to cloak themselves in garb beyond the blatant and self-evident hate to transform themselves into angels of light and ‘reason’ that deceive the individual to focus on singular aspects of contention, rather than the message, point and purpose of the call to gather a people to beseech them to turn back to God.
While I am not a listener of radio entertainer Glenn Beck, or much care for his ability to generate instant tears on his news program, that he would call America together for the purpose of exhorting us to turn back to God is an effort worthy of the support of anyone who is a Christian, anyone who reveres the bible and/or understands the religious heritage and history from whence we came as a people.
If the question for the nation was “Who stands with the Lord?” – then clearly over 800,000 physically stood for the purpose and exhortation of the event, this past Saturday with hundreds of thousands more online. More than a million-strong having heard or seen part or all of the event. The point and purpose; to turn our nation back to God – and seek repentance for ourselves and the nation.
But then almost immediately, the lines of demarcation in the spiritual war now raging became manifest.
The usual God-hating Marxists and Leftists along with the Ruling Class politicians and pundits did not disappoint in their expected outcry of rage against a rally for America to turn to God. But even they surpassed the usual amount of demonic vitriolic vomit to cross into the sphere of total unhingement.
Former editor Beau Friedlander for Air America and contributor to the Huffington Post put a bounty on the head of Glenn Beck and offered $100,000 for anyone who could provide sex tapes and phone records or any evidence of wrong doing by the talk radio host. Of course he provided that offer after he roundly bashed Christian Americans and Evangelicals – slandering them for being evil “neocons” (a favorite slam from both the Marxist Left and the Ron Paul/Alex Jones bunch). The column itself was so outrageous that even the mega-left leaning HuffPo had to retract the article from it’s site.
MSNBC’s unhinged alchie Chrissy “I gotta thrill up my leg” Matthews ranted abject fury over the rally, exclaiming: ““Who stole America? I want to know, who stole America? Give me the names. Who stole America?” as if Christians seeking God snuck into D.C. under cover of darkness and turned us into a theocracy by putting guns to everyone’s head and telling them to pray to God.
This was the day after he went beserk screaming “Little right-wing boys and little right-wing girls joining hands and singing their praise for Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. I have a nightmare”. Yes, the nightmare for any Ruling Class hedonist is that a Christian people would dare pray and ask the nation to repent. They and the demons with their Prince who rules the power of the air, and the airwaves – tremble at the thought.
But there is far more out there from the rabid Marxist Left if you wish to do a Google search and read the absolute foam-at-the-mouth vitriol against everyone who went to that rally this Saturday.
The hatred of Christians and those who call us to return to God, is rising to an institutionalized level that I only experienced in India from the Muslims and Hindus – two opposite extremes of faith with a common enemy; Christians. Yet this is supposedly America, but it certainly feels less and less like it each passing day.
And when you read all the hatred, ranting and outright insanity and fear the Ruling Class and their Marxist sycophants have for Christians – you suddenly find yourself reading strikingly similar hatred, ranting and outright insanity from so-called Conservatives on the Right. Even moreso in some cases.
In solidarity with the Secular Christian-hating Leftists, many self-described Christian “patriots” also went beserk with as much vomitous vitriol as their Ruling Class media counterparts. They decided they would not stand with the Lord if it entailed standing with a man whose politics and doctrinal positions they did not agree with. Instead they decried those who organized the rally as being in league with the Devil, and those who went with being deceived and blinded sheep.
So they undertook the same efforts as those on the Secular and Marxist Left – and ardently warned America to stay away from; to ridicule; demean; smear; and even boldly attack Beck’s denominational faith. To plead with America that Beck’s call and assembly was not to be followed, listened to or acknowledged, even if his call was for the nation to repent and turn back to God.
Within hours, jealous competitors decided to join with the Secular Left and wage their own efforts to ‘expose’ the man responsible for calling America together before God. I mean, “How dare he!” as one blog poster in a fit of rage let fly. I could almost feel the palpable rage that must have existed in those that tore huge chunks of flesh with their teeth from the Apostle Stephen as they foamed in rage at those who had a following not approved by those who made themselves arbiters of what is holy and patriotic.
One such example is Conspiratorial crackpot and Anti-semitc nutcase Alex Jones, who in a fit of jealous rage that Beck could call nearly a million Americans to come together and pray to God – announced all his current conspiracy film projects were going to be halted so he could work on his Bash Beck film : “The Glenn Beck Deception”.
Yes, all of you 800,000 who were there on Saturday – you are “deceived” by “evil neocons” into praying to God and calling the nation to repentance.
There’s Youtube video of that rant if you care to hunt for it yourself.
Then there’s acolyte of the Leftist/Alex Jones meme, James Howard Kuntsler, who went so far to include F-bombs and other insulting vomit of those of you “disoriented citizens’ who attended the rally on Saturday:

…The masses still truly believe that prayer will save them from bankruptcy, foreclosure, penury, the loss of status, and the cut-off of precious air-conditioning, so Glenn steps onto a national monument like an Aztec priest ascending the Pyramid of Huitzilopochtli to soothe the angry god with worshipful incantations, and incidentally maybe a few dozen sacrificial hearts cut out — just as the tea-bagger right-wing glorifies the sacrifices of US soldiers blown up by roadside bombs for the sake of American military adventuring
No I’m not providing a link to that spew – what I posted is all I will subject you fine folks to reading.
But back to the curse I mentioned in the first sentence of this rant. In this spiritual war for the soul of the nation and it’s near-term future – the spirit prompting those bashing Beck and Christians at that rally, whether they be from the Ruling Class Left – or the Alex Jones/Right – is the same spirit – who hates beyond reason and logic that anyone be exhorted to return to God, to seek Repentance and to turn from our wicked ways as II Chronicles 7:14 tells us.
Make no mistake, this is a spiritual war. And history always shows, that those engaged in attacking the faith and spiritual constitution of a segment of the population – will transcend the arena of rhetoric and rant, and rend that pound of flesh from our bones with teeth and steel.
Such is how Satan the Devil works.

I really didn’t see a lot of “splitting” up there. Of course I’m not an obumble swilling prog, so maybe we live in different worlds…
Just noting the irony of Beck questioning Obama’s “version of Christianity” when he is a mormon and has a different view of the diety of Christ than Christians.
Do the Mormons Really Deny Jesus?
The Answer is Absolutely Yes!
“Whom Do Ye Say That I Am?”
Jesus obviously felt it was important for his disciples to know his true identity. Although the Mormon Church professes to believe in Jesus Christ, we will see that they actually deny most of the essentials of: A) Who he is (prophetically and ancestrally); and B) What he did. If anyone redefines who Jesus is and what he did, they have a different (false) Christ. For example, if I were to teach that, “Jesus was born in Japan in 1830, He killed 24 people, He even lied to many people during his lifetime, and finally died in 1902 of old age,” I would be teaching a false Jesus. At the least, I would be denying his birth place, his Jewish ancestry, and his death on the cross. If I were to teach these things about Jesus Christ, they would be enough to define a different (false) Jesus Christ.
By definition, anyone who professes a false Christ denies the true one. Jesus wants us to recognize him and follow him only. The question is, “Do the Mormons profess the true Jesus Christ or a false one?”
The True Jesus Has Always Been God
The Bible says that Jesus has always been God (John 1:1-14), and there is only one God in existence (Is. 44:6). However, the Mormon Church teaches that God the Father is a resurrected human man who is a married being who has “spirit children” in Heaven. Mormonism teaches that every human being born on this earth was first born in Heaven to God and one of his wives. Accordingly, Jesus was also born in the pre-existence to God the Father and one of his wives in heaven, just like all other human and demonic beings.
The Mormon Church teaches that Jesus is the first baby born to God in heaven. They also teach that Jesus and Lucifer were brothers in Heaven (Gospel Through the Ages – 1946 Priesthood Manual by Milton R. Hunter, p. 15). The Bible says that Jesus created everything that was created and made (John 1:3, Col. 1:16). This includes the Devil since only God was in existence in the beginning. By saying that Jesus only came into being when he was born in the pre-existence and had to work out his way to becoming a God, Mormonism denies Jesus’ Godhood from all eternity.
The Trinity or Polytheism?
The God of the Bible says that there is only one God in existence (Isaiah 44:8). He knows of no other God in existence. Before Him there were no Gods formed, neither will there be any Gods formed after Him (Isaiah 43:10). Although from our vantage point, we see three separate personages (Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost), these three separate personages are somehow the one eternal God. No one seems to be able to explain just exactly and precisely how this happens, but since the Bible says it, true Bible believers believe it. Sometimes it is explained like this: “There exists only one eternal God who manifests himself in three distinct personages, … Father, Son and Holy Ghost.”
Mormons, however, consider God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost to be three separate gods who are one only in purpose. They also believe that god their father has a god who was his father, who has a god the father to him, and so on into eternity past. The Mormon temple ceremony teaches that men can become gods themselves, who can become gods to their sons, who can become gods to their sons, and so on into the unending future (What’s Going On In There by Chuck Sackett).
Mormonism also teaches that Jesus Christ, the devil, and the Holy Ghost are brothers born to God the Father and one of his wives in Heaven during the pre-world existence. Mormonism believes in the existence of an infinite number of gods. Because they believe that more than one god exists, it is obvious that Mormonism is polytheistic (Webster’s Dictionary) and therefore truly denies the biblical meaning of the trinity.
The Highest “Gospel” Goal
The highest goal of every faithful male Latter-day Saint (Mormon) is to strive to become a God like his Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father’s spirit children must come to earth and live a mortal life, then die, be resurrected, and work their way up to the Celestial Kingdom in order to become Gods or Goddesses themselves (Gospel Principles, Chapter 47; Mormon Doctrine, p. 238). Thus Mormonism belittles Jesus’ Godhood by making it attainable to sinful man.
His Birth Place
The Book of Mormon, prophesies that Jesus would be born “at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers” (Alma 7:10). This is a false prophesy because Jerusalem has always been a city, it has never been a land. Also it is very clear in the Bible, that Jesus’ birth happened in “Bethlehem of Judea.” (Matt. 2:1) It is interesting that most Mormons do not believe that Jesus was born in Jerusalem. Those who agree with the Book of Mormon obviously reject his Biblical birthplace.
The Virgin Birth
The Bible and the Book of Mormon agree that Jesus was born of a virgin. This sign was given in the Old Testament. “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14). The Bible says, “She was found to be with child through the Holy Ghost” (Matt. 1:18-28).
The Book of Mormon agrees, “…she being a virgin … who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost…” (Alma 7:10) However, Brigham Young denied this Biblical truth: “Now remember from this time forth and for ever, that Jesus Christ was not begotten by the Holy Ghost” (Journal of Discourses Vol. 1, p. 51).
The meaning of “virgin” is that Mary had never had sex with anyone. Mormon prophets and apostles have continually taught that God the Father came down to earth with his glorified physical body, parts, and passions and had sex with the “virgin” Mary to form the body of Jesus Christ. Mormon Apostle James Talmage calls this act “celestial sireship” (Jesus the Christ, p. 81).
Apostle Bruce R. McConkie says that it happened in the “same way that mortal sons are born to mortal fathers”. He also said that it happened in the “normal and natural” way (Mormon Doctrine, p. 742).
Ezra Taft Benson (former prophet of the Mormon Church who died in 1994), not only stated that Jesus was not begotten by the Holy Ghost, but also that Jesus was literally “sired” by God the Father (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 7). He then goes on to say that Mary was “called a virgin both before and after she gave birth.” By this statement, the Mormon prophet is saying that although Jesus was “sired [sexual relations] by that same being we worship as God our Eternal Father”, we will still “call” his mother a “virgin.”
This definition obviously disagrees with Webster’s Dictionary and our common usage of the term “virgin.” (additional references: 1972 Family Home Evening pp. 125-6, The Seer pp. 158-9, Defense of the Faith of the Saints–B.H. Roberts, Vol. 2, p. 268) It should be obvious now that the Mormon Church denies the biblical meaning of the “virgin birth.”
Jesus’ Blood Sacrifice for Sins
The Bible reports his baptism by John in the Jordan River as the first event in Jesus’ public ministry. Jesus chose twelve apostles and commenced his ministry of proclaiming the kingdom of God. He never hurt anyone but helped those who were in need. The lame walked, the sick were healed, and the blind could see. He did not shed blood in the garden but his sweat was “as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground” in the garden (Luke 22:44).
He was then illegally arrested, beaten, and tortured to death on a cross. He was buried in a tomb, he rose from the dead on the third day (1 Cor. 15:4), and ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:1-11). He now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. His perfect sinless life qualified him alone as a sin sacrifice, which was his purpose in life and death. (Acts 2:33, 1 Timothy 2:5, Hebrews 9:15)
Many of my Mormon friends, however, believe that most of the atonement took place when Jesus sweated blood in the Garden of Gethsemane for our sins (The Promised Messiah, pp. 337-8), and that when he finally reached the cross he didn’t have much blood left to shed (Romney, Oct. conference 1953, p. 35).
Because of this teaching that Jesus shed his blood in the garden to atone for our sins, many Mormons believe that Jesus didn’t need to die on the cross for our sins. Most of the Mormons who have seen the cross that I wear, think that it is foolish to wear something that emphasizes Christ’s death. They don’t realize that it was on the cross that Jesus willingly paid the penalty for our sins.
Today, Mormons mock the cross of Christ and refuse to display one at any of their buildings. However, the Bible says that the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but it is the power of God to those who are being saved (I Corinthians 1:18). Thus, Mormonism denies the blood of Jesus shed on the cross for our sins.
After His Ascension into Heaven
The Book of Mormon reports that Jesus caused many cities in America to be destroyed with all their inhabitants. He then descended out of the clouds and appeared to the people living on the American continent. Accordingly, he also established his church in America (Mormon 3:19) where he picked out twelve more apostles (twelve in Israel and twelve in America for a new total of 24).
According to Mormonism, both of Christ’s churches ended in utter failure (total apostasy). Jesus was not able to keep his church going and this is why Joseph Smith was called to restore the true church again upon this earth (Pearl of Great Price – Joseph Smith History 1:19). This is also why Joseph boasted that he did a greater work than even Jesus did (History of the Church Vol. 6, pp. 408-409). By these teachings, the Mormon Church denies Jesus’ biblical role as healer / redeemer and makes him into a killer / destroyer / liar.
Melchizedek, Aaronic and Jesus’ Priesthoods
Melchizedek – is the first priesthood mentioned in the Bible. Melchizedek met Abraham returning from battle and blessed him (Genesis 14:18-24). Genesis does not record any other incident in Melchizedek’s life. It does not record his ancestry, how he became a priest or his death. The Bible does not record the transfer of his priesthood to anyone else (Heb. 7:3).
Aaronic – This priesthood was introduced by God to Aaron through Moses. Because physical death prevented Aaronic priests from continuing in office, their priesthood had to be transferred to their descendants (Heb. 7:23). All Aaronic (or Levitical) priests were required to be a direct descendent of Aaron (Heb. 7:5, 14). The law required a blood sacrifice of bulls and goats as a consequence of sin. However, the shedding of the blood of animals, could not impart eternal life to imperfect people through the law (Heb. 7:11, 8:7,&13; Gal. 3:21-22). The Aaronic priesthood ended with John (Luke 16:16, Matt 27:51). It is clear that Jesus was not from the tribe of Aaron and doesn’t qualify for the Aaronic Priesthood (Heb. 7:11-15).
Jesus’ Priesthood –
Because man could not keep the law perfectly, there was a need for a new priesthood to come, not based on death, but on an indestructible life (Heb. 7:16). Jesus put into effect a new and perfect priesthood (Heb. 7:18). Jesus’ priesthood is held by him alone, because he is the only one who could offer himself as a sinless sacrifice (Heb. 7:15-16). He alone qualifies for this new priesthood in the order (pattern or arrangement) of Melchizedek. Like Melchizedek, Jesus’ priesthood is not traceable according to ancestry (Heb 7:3). Jesus’ priesthood is unchangeable, meaning non-transferable (Heb. 7:24). Thus, Jesus is the only one who has it and it cannot be given or transferred to anyone else.
Mormon Priests –
The Priesthoods of Mormonism do not look at all like the Biblical originals. Today, the Mormon Church gives their twelve-year-old boys a priesthood that they call the “Aaronic Priesthood”.
19-year-old boys can qualify for the Mormon “Melchizedek Priesthood”. These Priesthoods are not the restoration of the originals for they are both transferable and neither are given by lineage. According to Mormonism, their Jesus qualified for and held both of these Priesthoods. The Mormon Church totally re-defines God’s Holy Priesthoods and thus denies Jesus’ non-transferable priesthood.
Who Then Can Be Saved?
The Bible says that God’s salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and not by works (John 3:16, Eph. 2:8-10). The Book of Mormon says that a person must do all the works that they can, in order to qualify to receive grace (II Nephi 25:23, Moroni 10:32).
The Mormon Church teaches that Jesus’ atonement enables every person who has ever lived to be resurrected, but that salvation is conditional upon their own works (Mormon Doctrine pp. 24 & 669, Articles of Faith pp. 89-90, Doctrines of Salvation 1:133-134). However, the Bible is clear that there is no other way to be saved except through accepting the work done on the cross by the true Jesus Christ (John 14:6, Romans 10:13-17, Acts 4:12). Mormonism rejects God’s gift of salvation by grace bought by the death of Jesus on the cross.
Is Joseph the Judge?
In an 1859 sermon, Brigham Young said, “…no man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith…every man and woman must have the certificate of Joseph Smith, junior as a passport to their entrance into the mansion where God and Christ are-I with you and you with me. I cannot go there without his consent. He holds the keys of that kingdom for the last dispensation-the keys to rule in the spirit world; and he rules there triumphantly, for he gained full power and a glorious victory over the power of Satan while he was yet in the flesh, and was a martyr to his religion and to the name of Christ, which gives him a most perfect victory in the spirit world. He reigns there as supreme a being, in his sphere, capacity, and calling, as God does in heaven.” (Journal of Discourses, Vol. 7 p. 289)
The Jesus of the Bible says it is he who judges in heaven: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have we not cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity” (Matthew 22-23). By letting Joseph Smith share in God’s final judgment, Mormonism denies the judgment throne of Jesus Christ.
Denial of Jesus
Mormonism truly denies the Jesus of the Bible, because they deny the essentials of his identity. Just like the people of Jesus’ day, the Mormons deny the historic reality of who Jesus really was and what he did.

I just can’t get over how ironic it is that someone who extensively researched the progressive movement would not look into the background of the LDS church in the same way.
What does Beck think about the bizarre life of Joseph Smith and the real origin of The Book of Mormon?
I can’t get over how incapable a majority of so-called liberty-minded Christians, reject the message and point of the Restoring Honor rally, to instead focus on the man.
Thus the message is lost and the entire rally’s point is become null and moot.
Without national repentance (II Chronicles 7:14) we have no hope as a nation to overcome what we are and will face.
People say it is only because Beck is a Mormon and if it was someone else – the rally would have had merit.
That’s bunk – because if it had been Palin or Limbaugh or someone else – the tear down would be the same and they would be accusing them of starting a theocracy
But the fact is that the Joel Osteens and America’s Pastors haven’t and won’t do what Beck did.
If Jesus said the Father would cause the rocks to cry out – then why can’t the Lord use a Mormon when the rest of His people have failed and refused to do what scripture says a wayward nation should do??
There is definitely a war going on in the unseen world, the spiritual world. Good against evil and vice versa, lies against truth. I am glad the good and the truth wins out in the end.
