Tithes, conservative and mainstream:
Today, September 2, 2010, Glenn Beck said that he was “conservative.”
To a Protestant theologian the word “conservative” means that you accept the Bible as the final word of authority. Mormons are not conservatives. They accept the Book of Mormon, other Mormon writings and current Mormon leaders as greater revelations and prophets of God than the Bible.
Today Glenn Beck criticized Obama for not being “mainstream” because the “liberation theology” of Jeremiah Wright is not mainstream.
Neither “liberation theology” nor “Mormon theology” is “mainstream” – especially Mormon theology. Mormons teach that God the Father used to be a man and that Mormon men will become gods with their own worlds to be God in. Mormons teach that God’s wife spawned everybody on earth and that Glenn Beck’s Mormon wife will eventually be eternally pregnant spawning mankind on another planet.
And, o yes, Mormon tithing is more accurate than regular tithing because they correctly perpetuate the Aaronic priesthood and biblically deserve the tithe.
I love Glenn Beck and listen to him and watch him daily. But my caution flag is always up. Last week he introduced the first of his advanced Indian civilizations which are taught in the Book of Mormon.
