"Kevin Heckle on Glenn Beck"


Hello fellow Doves & good morning, John!
 
John, I want to thank you for allowing the discussion on Glenn Beck to go on ~ was somewhat holding my breath over the last week or two, when discussion would at times turn into a bit of a debate.  I know that you are a peacemaker and that you want peace on your board and that is so greatly appreciated.  On this case though I also appreciate that you allowed it to go on because otherwise I wouldn't have had my eyes open on this man, not that I've ever been a big fan, but this guy is HUGE news in America!! 
 
Suzy you & Fay are champs!  Mathew, too.  Suzy, I even copied down some of the stuff you wrote as I sat here going "powerful stuff"!!
 
At any rate, normally I'm perfectly fine to just sit back & read & not join in, but Kevin what you wrote here http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/jan2011/kevinh121.htm    drew me out.
 
It's all part of the GREAT  LIE ~ the "all paths lead to heaven" lie!!!!    And yes, from what little I retain about Mormonism, they do believe the ghastly lie that Jesus and satan were spirit brothers.  You are right about your info here, Kevin.  Thanks for telling us what you heard Beck say on the radio.
 
My SIL, though she is sweet, well-meaning, and sincere, has spouted the very lie that we are ALL "children of God"...... which is not Scriptural unless one has received the Lord.     
 
(and you are 100% right -- not everyone in the world are brothers & sisters; in fact, MOST ppl in the world are not brothers & sisters to the Christian (because they choose the broad road which does not lead to life)
 
PURE 100% TRUTH FOUND IN SCRIPTURE:
John 1:12
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
 
How does one "receive" God?   So, that s/he will then have the "right" to become a CHILD OF GOD??
 By repentance & faith in Jesus  {2 different things:  repent from being a sinner by calling out for His mercy & help & then turning back on vile
lifestyle OR on lifestyle of trying to be "good enough" on our own merit to get to heaven} and then believing in Jesus that He IS God's Son, born in the flesh, crucified and resurrected.  By His blood, we have remission of sins, and He can help us overcome any deeds that are abominable in His sight. 
 
From Acts 20:21  {this is the HEART of the salvation message}
21 I have had one message for Jews and Greeks alike—the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus.
 
We are told to TURN from such lifestyles, otherwise be counted among the "many" on judgment day who will call out to Him, "Lord, Lord!" ~ have I not done such awesome deeds in Your Name   {my loose translation}  and He will cast these many away -- saying that they did NOT turn FROM their iniquities.
 
2 Tim 2:19 (b) says:  “All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil.”
 
I full well realize this is "Christianity 101" for most here, but realizing that the days are so short now, it never hurts to have this out there for those who want to seek Him either in the moments shortly before the pre-tribulational rapture or the moments afterwards, when truth will be harder to find, there will be so many theories floating around, and people will be deluded.
 
People are deluded ALREADY!!   With apostasy at "full" right now, sure seems it's one of the biggest signs of the SOON rapture!!
 
Thank you guys, and as you feel led, continue with your civil words which, to some, may pack a powerful punch, but we need to know the truth!
