You know, I'm fairly apolitical. I don't get into rabid policy debates by and large. As a result, I don't have a lot of time or interest for the bloviating talking heads on any news network. But Glenn Beck really needs to knock it off. He clearly doesn't understand what Christianity is really all about.
Now I'm not saying that the Church should become just another political organization of lobbyists out to change the world for the disadvantaged. Doing so would be a betrayal of our mandate to go out and make disciples of all nations. But at the same time, we should pay attention to what the Old Testament prophets had to say about social justice. We should remember what Jesus commended people for in Matthew 25. We should follow Paul's example, someone who worked to not only spread the faith but to take up a collection for the poor in Jerusalem. We should remember that James says Christianity is a faith that works.
Glenn Beck, I've seen in the past, claims to be a Christian. Perhaps he should take some time off the air and take some courses on basic Christianity. He clearly needs them.
