A Word in Due Season

Scripture Glen?

Joie Pirkey August 28 at 12:22pm
In Glen Beck’s awesome event this afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial in his 11:15 a.m. speech around 11:20 he said that the historical speeches and founding documents are American Scripture. He went on to say that they are scripture like any other scripture. He said that they are alive like any other scripture.

Let me begin by saying I love Glen Beck. I often pray for him to be converted to Christianity and the doctrine of the Apostles out of the cult of Mormonism. I do enjoy the way that he names names and exposes links and gives me tons of things to Google and educate myself with. He does a good job giving a perspective the fosters educating oneself.

With all that being said, I also realize that he is ‘preaching’ a number of very Christian ideas, scriptures, sentiments and many Christians are listening wholeheartedly. But I want to warn you brothers and sisters of the Faith to keep your discerning ears up when you are taking in his Fox News Shows, the speeches, the books. He is not filled with the Holy Spirit and he is not correct in the fundamental tenets of Christianity. I believe that it’s fine to listen to him for our political information and also to get up to speed with what’s going on in the world, but please, be very careful when Glen Beck begins to ‘preach’. Not sure if you have noticed but it’s been increasing lately. He is not a Christian. He is in a very large cult that distorts scripture at it fundamental core doctrines.

I have been hearing the nagging whisper of the Holy Spirit instructing me against my judgment to watch Beck carefully for Biblical error. Then this morning as I had eagerly awaited the August 28th Event at the Memorial I heard him say this: the historical speeches and documents are the scripture of America. They are alive like any other scripture.

I didn’t put that in quotes because I am not positive on the actual verbiage but I am sure that was his clear sentiment. I can’t quote it yet because he’s still speaking as I type.

But this very serious error in equating the scripture with historical documents or any other even religious documents is at the core of what God is speaking about recently, the authority of Scripture. No other text, NO NOT ONE, is like the Word of God. The Word of God is Christ.

John 1 says: 1 In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He existed in the beginning with God.
3 God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
4 The Word gave life to everything that was created,[a]
and his life brought light to everyone.
5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.

The Word of God is our ultimate authority. If it is not yours then you are not standing right before the God of this universe. And repentance is your only course to freedom.

To those of you who are strong in the faith be careful, be vigilant, be like the Bereans and study everything you hear being claimed as the words of God.

Insider Movement supported by Jim Wallis

Tonight I got on the computer up in my room while Douglas worked on the big pc beside me. He is writing a refutation of the Insider Movement for the upcoming conference that the Biblical Missiology Group is hosting in October.

If you haven’t been keeping up to speed with what God is doing in the Valley I sugget that you read the newsletters about the C5/ IM heresy. :

So I was doing some research for Douglas on this issue and I found on, none other than, Jim Wallis’ sojourners blog tonight a very interesting article:

This is the fundamental ideology of the C5/ Insider Movement heresy that I have been writing about for a year now, since Christ the Rock Community Church held a conference teaching people this stuff last August. Tim spoke about their doing so only two Sundays ago. Check out the sermon on the CCV web site if you haven’t had the opportunity.

This past week I have been emailing a number of folks about how the I/M is a sister to the Emergent Church and Social Justice. I have been doing research on their beginnings since the Lord spoke to me about Ichabod.
