    stair- I’ve spent 30 years studying it. The clear message Jesus taught was to remain neutral because one day God’s kingdom will put an end to all earth’s governments and it will be the one to end mankind’s problems.

    brigott- When the bible says to do “all things for God’s glory” that doesn’t mean ALL things are acceptable to God just because people think they are doing it in his name. The bible says that it is not up to mankind to rule themselves. (Jeremiah 10:23; Ecclesiastes 8:9) So why would you think that God wants you to support any human or government to do what he says they have no business doing?

    God specifically said that NONE of earth’s nations would solve the world’s problems, and that he would even destroy all of those governments. I pay all of my taxes. I obey the laws, show respect for the authorities, etc. But I am not going to say that God has chosen this or any other country to put an end to our problems because that is contrary to what the bible teaches.

    brigott- Jesus said to be no part of the world. He refused to become involved in politics and told his disciples to imitate him. When political matters came up, such as the matter of just taxes, he refused to get involved. He told his followers to preach that God’s kingdom was the only solution. He didn’t say “support an earthly solution but do it for God’s glory…”

    I really tire of all this stuff. Glenn is constantly trying to mix politics and religion. Many times he’s said to get your church involved in politics. That’s the OPPOSITE of what Jesus said and did. He lived under an oppressive government that took away the people’s rights. It was a critical time in world history then too. People were dying for their faith, society was on the brink- just like today. Yet he REFUSED to get involved in politics. He ran away when they wanted to make him King, he refused to get trapped into political debate and said “just pay your taxes”. Never once did he say any earthly kingdom should, could or would fix the problems going on. His answer was to WAIT for God’s kingdom to solve the problems. It was all about God’s kingdom for him, not Rome, not Israel, not about rising up and taking their country back. He NEVER would have called out the Emperor or Governor in the Synagogue, or endorsed any political leader, and he explicitly told his followers to be “no part of the world” because he was “no part of the world”.

    Glenn and others are doing the opposite. They speak politics from the pulpit and attempt to rally others to put their trust in themselves, or in a restored America to do what God’s kingdom is supposed to do. It shows a profound lack of understanding of Christ’s message, and a lack of faith in God’s ability to do as he promised. Glenn has become a prophet in his own mind.

    The Constitution doesn’t say that, Snow. That’s the Declaration of Independence.

    Money taken in- $6.9 million
    Paid in salaries- $337,000
    Other expenses- $1.6 million
    Paid in grants- $4.1 million

    Only $1.6 million in “expenses” is tiny considering the charity traveled all over the world, held big events, etc. Just a single 8/28 event costs that much to put on! Again, let’s be honest. There’s a lot to complain about concerning Beck. His charity is not one of them.

    Mind- No, read the tax return linked above. Very little went to run of the mill expenses. It all went to grants for charitable causes. I am not a fan of Beck, especially not the “God is speaking through me” stuff. But let’s be honest.

  • [5] June 8, 2015 at 5:41pm

    The charity tax returns are public. There’s a link in this thread above. $7 million taken in last year. 5% paid in salaries. That’s 95% going to the causes.

    They have the power to DECIDE to prosecute. But time and again we have seen they don’t have the power to CONVICT. A grand jury had the final say in Furgeson, a trial Jury in the Trayvon Martin case.

    This isn’t the movies. You can’t just whack a high profile, powerful public figure and get away with it.

    I believe the reporting has been that he was APPROACHED by police because he was acting suspiciously in an area he was known to deal drugs in. He was ARRESTED because he ran away and resisted when they tried to detain him. What happened after that, nobody knows but the investigators.

    No, it’s dog food that has to be 30 years old because that’s the year on the headstone. And 30 years of rain never dissolved it. Oh, and that giant FLOOD that washed over the cemetery didn’t carry the food away either…

    Seriously, if I saw a freaking scorpion on my shoulder I would swat it off without thinking, and maybe scream like a girl- and so would you.

  • February 16, 2015 at 9:00am

    Whenever I see one I let it go. I figure what’s the point. It’s not like there aren’t a dozen more somewhere in the house.

  • [1] February 16, 2015 at 8:57am

    What????

  • [1] February 11, 2015 at 5:40pm

    They do that on purpose to get people to click. The Blaze is one of the worst offenders at fake headlines. That and the insane amount of ads and popups makes me wonder if Glen Beck is proud of the sideshow he created here. I think it may have gotten away from him somewhere along the line and he needs to get the management to refocus. We already have one National Enquirer…

    You’re probably right. I mean, if she wanted to be noticed she COULD just punch a photographer or drive drunk or make a sex tape. But instead she does nice things for regular people… that prima donna!
    I know what she should do! She could spend her days questioning the motives of others on message boards! That’s a sure fire way to feel better than everybody else, isn’t it Guitar Master…

    Can you please tell us where in the bible it says that Christians are commanded to pay a set percentage of their income as a tithe?

  • [32] November 26, 2014 at 2:05pm

    My church never asks for money. They never pass the collection plate. They just have donation boxes in the back. It’s all voluntary and anonymous. And they not only pay the bills, but the organization spends hundreds of millions a year all over the world. How is this possible? Because nobody gets paid and the buildings are not fancy cathedrals or modern rec centers like some churches. And when you see the money being used properly you are moved to give.
