Is Glenn Beck Right?

Glenn Beck has the right idea about focusing on God. Unfortunately, he is going about it the wrong way.

By that I mean: Yesterday at his Restoring Honor rally he spoke of uniting people in God. Tomorrow, however, he will broadcast on radio and TV a message of judgment and attack, utilizing labels that diminish those he disagrees with, encourage divisiveness and generate anger and aggression in his followers.

This is counterproductive to what he says his God intention is.


Rather than judging and attacking his brothers and sisters who he believes are misguided and/or evil, if he truly wants to unite rather than divide, and welcome God into everyone's mind, then he needs to find a way to see the good in everyone despite how they're behaving.

He needs to tailor his message so as to gently guide people to the truth of God and Love, and in so doing help them make better choices.

God is Love. Love is unconditional. There can be no exclusions or exceptions.

Contrary to what many people think, God does not take sides. This is an interpretation of the ego. It is not the reality of God.

God does not love some people and hate others. God does not welcome some people into heaven and banish others to hell. We must discard these old, tired concepts of an angry, vengeful God who smites enemies and curses people with plagues and misfortune.

This God is not real. There is but one God and he loves us all, even those who are deeply disturbed and degenerate.

Glenn Beck said that his Restoring Honor rally was about God and not politics. That's good. Honor and God go together. Honor and politics do not. People may think they do, but that is another con of the ego mind that wants to keep this world inflamed and confused.

Bottom line: It's not going to be particularly effective to have one symbolic day devoted to rallying behind God, if the rest of the time we are in a judgment and attack mode.

If Glenn Beck wants his vision of God and the restoration of honor to take hold in this country it would be best that he put aside his politics of fear and hate.
