Glenn Beck Converts To Chrislam

Glenn Beck Converts To Chrislam

June 10, 2013

By Theodore Shoebat

An excerpt:

... If we are eager to be equally yolked with Mormons as spiritual equals because of the charisma of Beck, then we will fall into accepting their theology, leading us further into welcoming Islam as an inspired religion. Yet this is exactly what Beck believes.

This error is that grave heresy which has been growing recently: chrislam. If you think Beck combats Islam, you are mistaken. He speaks out against terrorism yes, but not the source of it. He writes in one of his books, An Inconvenient Truth:

"I have read the Koran and can tell you that I unequivocally believe that Islam is a religion of peace."

Not only is Islam acceptable as the “religion of peace”, but invited everyone to get possessed by demons. As astonishing as it sounds, its true. Beck, in his book The 7 (co-athored with Keith Ablow), writes:

"Every major religion and culture has identified faith as a force that unlocks mysterious and magnificent energy. The Book of Mormon puts it simply and directly: ‘…Whenever men have sufficient faith, angels have ministered unto them.’ Hinduism, Taoism, Chinese popular religion, Siberian shamanism, and other traditions speak of a polestar. …You have a polestar inside you. It is connected with all the energy in the universe. When you begin to follow that star you align yourself with immeasurable, inexplicable forces that will actually help you manifest your best intentions."

Why is Beck so focused on doctrines of devils? Because it is a part of his religion which we are all now required to respect and accept. In fact, Beck’s prophet, Joseph Smith led the most radical form of chrislam, emulating Muhammad in both his heresy and his violence. He believed that “Mahomet [Muhammad] was a true prophet.” Joseph Smith once declared:

"I will be to this generation a second Mohammad, whose motto in treating for peace was ‘Alcoran or the Sword.’ So shall it eventually be with us–’Joseph Smith or the Sword.’" (See Alvin Schmidt, The American Muhammad, ch. 3, p. 60)

So intense was Smith’s emulation of Muhammad that some American news editors called him “the American Mahomet,” or “the yankee Mahomet.” (See historian Alvin Schmidt, The American Muhammad, ch. 1, p. 27) Apparently Americans were more astute and educated on such matters in Smith’s day, and if there was one thing I wish to revive in this country, it is this very erudition on cults, past and present.

Nothing is new under the sun. What Christians are unaware that what Beck is doing now is shockingly what the Mormons were already doing in the earliest days of Mormonism till now where volumes of support for Islam and Muhammad have been declared by the LDS. The first Mormons honored Muhammad as a prophet when they made a council specifically dedicated to appreciating Islam.

Evidently Beck is promoting universalism. I wasn't aware of this until I came upon this news item on TruNews. I didn't post the entire blog post since there are videos there that you need to watch anyway (and I don't know how to post videos onto FR). Click the link and check out the whole thing.

Of course, Beck is also supposed to come out with some big news within the next 24 hours. So, I don't want anyone to think I want to discredit anything that will be good for us. He's done a lot of good in his research for us, especially back in his Fox days... but, don't get too enamored with him, as there are parts of his ideology that are deadly to the soul.

Alas poor Beck, the Festering Faustus who would be King of Kolob.

His continued blathering amounts to little more than the continued worship of his own image in the reflecting puddle.

Interesting. In the wake of 9-11 I heard a Baptist theologian refer to Islam as “stone age Mormonism.” His comparison of these two aberrant religions was fascinating.

This article is pathetic. So basically, Beck 10 years ago called Islam the religion of peace in a book (notice, no context is provided whatsoever), at the same time Dubya did the same. I guess Dubya is a Muslim too, huh?
Then Beck, in a self-help book with Dr. Keith Ablow, said some nice things about Hinduism and Taoism as useful spritualities, and Shoebat basically calls him a devil-worshipper. Meanwhile Beck spent hours on his FoxNews show in front of a blackboard, warning viewers that Muslims want a "new caliphate" to dominate the world. Either Shoebat is an idiot who can't use Google, or a biased propagandist.
I think Shoebat wrote this to please his master, Michael Savage, who is the only talk show host who will ever have him on.

Bingo. I suppose context is not much of a concern for those who are not earthlings. But as with liberals, unhinged and ill informed biases just happen to supply the fuel they need for things they know nothing about, and a terrified to learn about on their puny little asteroid.

There sure has been a sudden spike in Beck bashing lately. Makes me think that they are really scared of something. I have found that the more people smear and malign someone the more I listen to what that person is saying.

agreed...America needs folks like Beck... Yes, he must be discerned.. the important thing is; what are the basic beliefs of the discerner..?. for me, as a Christian, I rely on the Holy Spirit.. He, along with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures, reveals, as close as I can get, the Truth. What I appreciate about Beck is he has a brain to be picked,,,and FR helps with the picking...

Nah. Beck is on Radio and RV/Internet so he can’t do anything but good and pure things to benefit all of humanity. It’s a rule or something.

Time after time he hypes things to the heavens but not every time does he deliver. The world refuses his dire predictions of ending...I don’t get it. What could possibly connect these bizzarre events to people getting upset?

Yup. It’s a mystery alright.

Beck bashing is rampant on Freerepublic and it seems that anyone who has a slightly different take on a subject gets bashed too. Me included.
If you don’t like Glenn Beck don’t read, don’t post. Simple as that!
Glenn has done more for America and freedom than most and even though you may not agree with everything he says his main message is correct.
I’m not sure what has happend to our community here on Free Republic but I do know that a few are infiltrating their hate into a once good community.

Last time I got into this with Beck supporters I said this and it still applies. If he is sitting on world altering info, it is his duty as An American to publish it for America’s benefit. Not his profit/in his personal timeframe.

I do not begrudge the man his dollar, but not at the expense of the country.

When Glenn starts preaching, begging or pleading I shut his show off. Usually takes him one hour. No problem for me.

I've been following politics and current events for a few decades or so. I can tell who is on my side and who is not. I agree with your comment completely.

“I’m not sure what has happend to our community here on Free Republic but I do know that a few are infiltrating their hate into a once good community.”

Probably the reason freepathons drag on forever.

Fruitcakes come in multiple flavors, liberal & conservative.

Just because Beck occasionally has a good idea is no reason to follow him. He's a clever talker, as is Satan.

Oh Dubya, ~that RINO... sorry.

Evidence like giving a nudge and a wink to Kenny Mehlman & Co prancing around the White Hut in their lite loafers?

The RINOcracy peddled their mischief using religious plumage of the Focus on the Family farse - while all along letting the termites devour the Republic from the inside out.

I don’t know if what was in Dubya’s heart was - but I can sure see what his Administration was NOT.

The Mormon-Muslim connection must be studied further.

Walid Shoebat is a former terrorist and ex-Muslim who is now a born-again Christian. What he says about Glenn Beck should be looked into even if a grain of salt is needed.

The term “chrislam” usually refers to survival techniques used by Middle Eastern Christians to appease the Muslim majority that surrounds them.

Apologists for Islam often claim that the Koran contains no bloodthirsty verses (!!?) nor preaches hatred for Jews, and they deliberately omit mention of the Hadiths & Sira (life of Mohammed) which are filled with violent rhetoric against Jews and other “infidels”.

It is not “Mormon-bashing” to be suspicious of the origin of the Book of Mormon, by the way. I listen to Glenn Beck every day but I still wonder what spiritual journey drove him from Catholicism to Mormonism.

I don’t know how to post videos onto FR).


That is fine because i don,t know how to watch them, that is i don,t even know if my pc has a speaker.

I have listened to Beck, as i have listened to the other talk show hosts for no other reason than getting filled in on the news as i have no TV and would not believe half of what the news media says any way.

I do not listed for spiritual reasons, what i want to know about that i find in the Bible

I agree that when ever the topic gets on the subject of our salvation which is in Christ if they do not say the exact same as we can read in the scriptures we need to turn them off.

As far as the future is concerned God tells us all about that, we may not all agree on what he is telling us but we are not going to change it what ever it is.

The reason for his journey is simple - he was a drunk.

Catholicism permits liquor. Mormonism forbids it.

Beck is more comfortable in a religion that considers his greatest enemy to be an "evil" substance rather than a foodstuff. It helps his recovery in a very uncomplicated way.

Also, Beck has a very grandiose sense of self - a religion which teaches that he may one day be the deity of his own universe would be very attractive to him, I would think.

Not at all - merely common-sense.
The Holy Bible makes perfect sense from Genesis to Revelation and is supported by secular historians and modern archeology.
The Book of Mormon, on the other hand....

[Glenn Beck]”...he may one day be the deity of his own universe...”

In his own mind he already is. Check out his website.

I’m Catholic & it doesn’t bother me that the Mormon doctrine about alcohol is a major difference (not as major as LDS notions about the Divine). Didn’t start out that way as Joseph Smith drank & his followers used tobacco but Mormon revisionism knows no bounds.

Jesus’ first miracle was to change water into wine. Teetotalling denominations are at a loss to explain that away. Catholicism teaches alcohol should be used in moderation and that drunkeness is a sin.

I get it. I guess my point was, if you're a Catholic then alcohol is a neutral substance - it is up to you to practice self-control and decide when and how much is appropriate or inappropriate.

If you're LDS the decision is made for you - alcohol is evil and it is forbidden at all times.

For someone like Beck, whose lack of self-control with regard to alcohol almost ruined his life, a religion that simply forbids it as evil outright probably seems logical to him.

And yes, it is a mug's game to pretend that the Bible forbids alcohol.

On a related note, one of the things that turned me off Beck was his repeated reference to “Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Jesus” as three MEN who changed history.

Really? What's next, the attempt by some Beck fangirls to have his threads given caucus status?

The tendency to screech "basher" at folks who don't go for Beck is pure emotionalism and, worse, a tactic that we normally see from leftwingers.
