On the second evening of Restoring Love, Glenn Beck made a special appearance at HighPoint Church in Arlington, TX, to speak before an audience of – at the “One Nation Under God” event, where religious leaders from around the country gathered to spread a message of charity, freedom and love.
By estimation, there were at least 6,000 people in attendance, all of whom gave Beck a standing ovation as soon as he stepped out onto the stage.
Beck opened the evening with humor and good spirit before praising the pastors and other religious leaders with whom he was sharing the stage. He announced that they are the “greatest collection of men that I know,” likening each to the men at the forefront of the American Revolution.
He said that history repeats itself and that those who can “wield the sword of righteousness” will make the leaders of the world “pee their pants.”
“Any population that follows God wins!” Beck exclaimed to a deafening round of applause.
Beck also took a moment to praise Restoring Love’s “day of service,” in which over 30,000 concerned Americans participated.
“Never before has there been a tragedy where 30,000 volunteered to serve,” Beck observed. But they did at Restoring Love.
In terms of his own road to faith, Beck took a moment to talk about his personal tragedies which led him to God.
“I am proud to say that with atonement I have conquered it [tragedy and alcoholism] in my own life — because of the saving power of Jesus Christ anything can be done.”
Watch the speech, below:
“The Lord is coming and he is our father in Heaven.”
Beck cautioned that anyone who is left “pointing the finger at someone else ”is in trouble first with the Lord.”
“Our country is disease ridden because we haven’t been following his [God's] teachings. We haven’t been doing the tough things.”
He urged other faith leaders to follow the example of the men pastors, priests and others who sat on the stage before him.
God “will protect you and he will guide you. He is not neutral in the freedom of mankind.”
