Either you love him or you hate him. Glenn Beck's rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial may have more deeply polarized American politics--if that were possible. But what about "the church" and its "revival," to which Beck so often refers? I mean, can you imagine Rush Limbaugh knowing anything about George Whitefield, much less quoting him on his radio show? I have to give Beck high marks for that! :)
Still, does he get it right? Russell Moore has an interesting take in his article "God, the gospel, and Glenn Beck."
Try this quote out: "Too often, and for too long, American "Christianity" has been a political agenda in search of a gospel useful enough to accommodate it. There is a liberation theology of the Left, and there is also a liberation theology of the Right, and both are at heart mammon worship. The liberation theology of the Left often wants a Barabbas, to fight off the oppressors as though our ultimate problem were the reign of Rome and not the reign of death. The liberation theology of the Right wants a golden calf, to represent religion and to remind us of all the economic security we had in Egypt. Both want a Caesar or a Pharaoh, not a Messiah."
