Last night I was winding down the day by enjoying my usual evening ritual: laying in bed while channel surfing. I happened to catch a glimpse of a special on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, “Foundations of Freedom,” featuring conservative polemicist, Glenn Beck (left), and Christian nationalist, David Barton (right). I didn’t watch for very long, but Beck and Barton were talking about defending America’s status as a “Christian nation.”
So, we now have a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Glenn Beck, featured on a supposedly evangelical Christian television network, defending America as a Christian nation? Hey, who cares about correct doctrine? Don’t be a nitpicker! We all love America! We all love Jesus and our Judeo-Christian values! We need to forget about doctrinal squabbles and embrace each other and fight the secular and non-Christian hordes amassing inside and outside our gates! Right? That’s the priority, correct?
Christians in America are betraying the Gospel in the name of national pride and nobody says a thing.
