Hagee Embraces Glenn Beck

Recently, prominent Christian pastor John Hagee welcomed Glenn Beck to speak at his church in Texas. Pastors Hagee's affection for Mr. Beck has not been hidden for over the past year or two as they have made prominent appearances together. The only problem here is that Glenn Beck is not a Christian. 

Is that a problem? Not really. Not really in that it is fairly common pal around with non-Christians. Yes, we are even encouraged to do so. Befriending non-Christians is one thing. Letting the speak and promoting them is something completely different.

Glenn Beck is not your ordinary non-Christian. Mr. Beck is a Mormon who purports to be a Christian.  Mormonism is not Christianity. They speak all the same words and have all the same morals on their personal conduct, but they do not worship the same God. Mormons worship a false god. Or more exactly, multiple gods. Quite different than Christianity.

Let's take a look at what King Josiah did when confronting those choosing to worship false gods. He certainly did not allow them to speak in the Temple and did not promote them in his kingdom:

And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, the priests of the second order, and the doorkeepers, to bring out of the temple of the LORD all the articles that were made for Baal, for Asherah, and for all the host of heaven;  and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried their ashes to Bethel. Then he removed the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense on the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places all around Jerusalem, and those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun, to the moon, to the constellations, and to all the host of heaven. And he brought out the wooden image from the house of the LORD, to the Brook Kidron outside Jerusalem, burned it at the Brook Kidron and ground [it] to ashes, and threw its ashes on the graves of the common people. Then he tore down the [ritual] booths of the perverted persons  that [were] in the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the wooden image. And he brought all the priests from the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beersheba; also he broke down the high places at the gates which [were] at the entrance of the Gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which [were] to the left of the city gate. 2 Kings 23
