MADISON, Wisc., Dec. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Focus on the Family has a story on Glenn Beck, a Mormon, on their CitizenLink Website. Glenn Beck was a CNN host and will move to Fox News in January. Beck is currently promoting his book, "The Christmas Sweater." The CitizenLink story focuses on Beck's faith and why he wrote "The Christmas Sweater."
While Glenn's social views are compatible with many Christian views, his beliefs in Mormonism are not. Clearly, Mormonism is a cult. The CitizenLink story does not mention Beck's Mormon faith, however, the story makes it look as if Beck is a Christian who believes in the essential doctrines of the faith.
Through the years, Focus on the Family has done great things to help the family and has brought attention to the many social ills that are attacking the family.
However, to promote a Mormon as a Christian is not helpful to the cause of Jesus Christ. For Christians to influence society, Christians should be promoting the central issues of the faith properly without opening the door to false religions.
Some of the false doctrines of Mormonism include polytheism, an attack on the trinity, that Jesus was the spirit-brother of Lucifer, that God the Father is married to Mother God, temple baptisms for the dead, the Bible has missing parts and many errors.
Christians are to stand up against the social ills of society, however, we are to put Christ first and His essential biblical truths. Steve McConkey, Underground Apologetics, says, "If we claim to be Christians, we do not need to compromise our central doctrinal truths to win the culture war. Instead, we need to promote essential truths first and the battle to win the culture wars will flow from that. We should not cease to be ministries that promote Christian truth because God is bigger than all of us."
