Liberty University decided that having Glenn Beck, a Mormon, give its convocation speech really isn’t all that big of a deal. In an email response sent from the office of Johnnie Moore, senior vice-president for communications and assistant to the president at Liberty, it was said that The Liberty University Convocation is not a church service, so having a mormon preaching mormon doctrines is completely ok! And according to Moore, Glenn Beck might be born again!
“By the way, many conservative evangelical leaders who are closer to Beck than me have told me that they believe Beck has had a born again experience recently.”
So what kind of message did Mr. Beck, who was said to have a born again experience recently, preach to the graduating class? One filled with old religious relics and Mormon doctrine. From an original William Tyndale Bible, to a pocket watch that supposedly was with Joseph Smith when he was killed. Beck painted the picture of Joseph Smith as a martyr of the faith, and one to look up to. Beck even referred to the unbiblical Mormon doctrine of The Council of Heaven, in which all pre-existing human souls are in heaven before being sent down to earth for a “divine purpose”. He then went on to state:
“I share your faith. I am from a different denomination. And a denomination that I’m sure can make many people at Liberty uncomfortable—I’m a Mormon—but I share your faith in the atonement of the Savior Jesus Christ.”
I’m sorry Mr. Beck, but the Jesus of the Bible is not the same Jesus of the Mormon faith. He is not the brother of Lucifer. He is not simply another god as your former prophet Bringham Young said, “How many Gods there are, I do not know. But there never was a time when there were not Gods…” (Journal of Discourses 7:333).
