Glenn Beck Declares Himself a Prophet

This is an amusing video clip of Glenn Beck, full of bravado and declaring himself to be a prophet because he’s been predicting that bad things would happen. Which is a lot like the Bible being correct because it claims that there would be wars and rumors of wars in the last days. Wow, that’s stepping out on a limb.

    I’ll be starting to collect a small pile of stones then, just in case he makes a wrong prediction and turns out to be ‘false’.

    Bek is certainly something that rhymes with prophet, but the word I’m thinking of begins with dip-….

    Shouldn’t that read:

    Glenn Beck declares himself a profit?

    Matthew 7:15 comes to mind: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Except that comparing Glenn Beck to a wolf would be a mortal insult to wolves.

    He just said word salad for 3 minutes. If saying we might someday have a financial meltdown in some unknown future is prophetic, then I am a prophet also. So is everyone else who even occasionally reads the news in the paper or online. Can I go on radio too and make money?

    If a catastrophy ol’ Glenn describes were to actually occur, ol’ Glenn would hire personal security guards and hide out in his mansion while everyone else starves to death. Now that is a prophet for you.

    Does this mean Beck will fight Monson in a duel to the death?

    This is an amusing video clip of Glenn Beck, full of bravado and declaring himself to be a prophet …

    Beck might be making the Mormon Pope a bit uneasy*.

    They already have a “seer, prophet, and revelator” and, as a totalitarian religion, there isn’t room for more than one. They’ve also had a problem with self appointed prophets splitting off. There are something like over 100 Mormon offshoots, some of them even uglier, hard as that is to imagine.

    OTOH, what they care about above all else is their money and power. While they claim to worship god, a lot of the time their god is green and has pictures of dead white guys on it. If Beck is kicking in his tithe percentage, they might not care what he calls himself. It’s just business,.

    *Or his handlers. The LDS leadership is a true Gerontacracy and most of the last ones have ended up with age related cognitive declines. Rumor has it that the current one isn’t too alert any more.

    Beck’s set floor uses a Union Jack & skull motif – wot the French?

    When the esthetic chickens come home to roost, they need to start by crapping all over that.

    The one thing I don’t ever get right is timing.

    Oh, is that all? Well, you might as well declare yourself to be a good comedian too then.

    Glenn Beck talking about racism just made me chuckle and gag at the same time.

  • grumpyoldfart

    So many dramatic pauses in that speech – it must be true!

    Sounds like he is channeling the biblical prophet Jeremiah.

    “…wars and rumors of wars…”

    I never understood the second part of that verse since not all rumors should be taken seriously.

    This is one Bible quote that is ripped badly out of context. Here is a little more with emphasis added

    Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

    So to summarise the message is not every war is evidence of the end. Rather it is warning not to see every war and rumour of war as evidence because there are going to be a lot of such things before the end. It is also tied specifically to a warning against people who claim to come in the name of Jesus using such disasters to support their claims. Now who does that sound like Mr Beck?

    For Glenn, it’s not about false prophets, but the real profits–the religion industry has known for millennia that nothing brings in the suckers and motivates them to open their wallets like prophecies of impending doom or persecution of the faithful.

    Well, he DOES have that “without honor” thing down pat.

    “Except that comparing Glenn Beck to a wolf would be a mortal insult to wolves.”

    Arf! GrrrrrrrrRRRrRr!

    BTW, what is it with the Obama administration keeping up the wolf killings? Things have gotten worse in the past few years, not better.

    Doesn’t the Bible warn about false prophets?
