Glenn Beck asks, “Can man rule himself?”

Last night, after arriving home from the church office, I pulled World magazine from the stack of mail.

I flipped through the magazine and settled on the short post of interest to me.

Beck, Jesus, and Me – Should man rule himself?  The Bible says no by Marvin Olasky

Marvin and Glenn do propose two different views for overcoming evil in our country and in the world.  Give it a read.


  1. I used to be a great fan of Beck’s. I thought he was funny, intelligent, and aware. Immediately after 9/11, he broke down on the radio and soon began to preach gloom and doom and prophesy various national or worldwide maladies that he might actually discuss or hold them for next week. I became suspicious of his real knowledge and his discernment. I became aware of his religion by reading about him on the internet and realized why I didn’t feel good about him and why his discernment is so questionable. I have stopped listening to him in the past year and believe him to be a selfserving phony who talks the talk, especially about Christiandom. I believe, in the tradition of Mormonism, he is a liar and manipulator and is fooling many people.

  2. All right, well, I’m certainly no fan of Beck’s, but theological questions aside, should we just, like jettison the First Amendment and the “no religious test” clause of the Constitution?

    From checking out Olasky, it would seem that his answer would be “yes”.

    And, BTW, Bernays is apparently best known for using propaganda to overthrow a government of Guatamala on behalf of the United Fruit Company, not exactly the act of a radical.

  3. That’s an interesting article, and troubling if accurate. It’s a shame we’ll probably never hear Beck offer his own recounting of what happened and his explanation of those remarks. I’ll have to be on the lookout for the final cut of that day’s show and give it a view.
