To Glenn Beck, Sadly

January 24, 2014

Dear Mr. Beck:

Having been a fan of yours for several years, I recently signed up for a free two-week trial of TheBlazeTV. I am not sure I will become a subscriber, though. The other day on your tv show you spoke about “the pursuit of happiness.” You said that engaging in homosexual behavior falls under that, because it is THEIR “pursuit of happiness” and everyone has that right as long as it does not hurt anyone else.

This is quite shocking. You as a historian should know that the Founders structured this country so that we would fall under the authority of God. His Word says that homosexual behavior is sin, just as lying, stealing, and other behaviors are sin. There is no statement in the Bible that says any sin that “doesn’t hurt anyone else” is somehow less of a sin. (There is no such thing as a sin that doesn’t hurt anyone else. Ask Adam.)

So do you really think the sin of homosexuality doesn’t hurt anyone else? What about all the people who now condone this sin; will they not have eternal consequences? What about children who are struggling with their own urges, and who might be convinced they are “gay” when they are not, especially when the (false) argument is that one is “born that way?” What about homosexuals themselves, with the extremely high suicide, physical, and drug abuse rates, and low life expectancy, found in the homosexual community? Are we as Godly people called to turn a blind eye or even condone people harming themselves and their eternal souls because their sin “doesn’t hurt anyone else?” No, we are called to love people, but that is not very loving, is it? And what about other consequences we cannot see?

What about the consequences to you personally? If you think you, with your limited, flawed, imperfect human vision, have it right, and God in His perfect wisdom and omniscience got it wrong, you have been deceived. Perhaps you think the Bible is outdated and needs revision. And perhaps there will be other sins you condone as well, that will be revealed in time. Again, you have been deceived.

You are rejecting God’s very clear Word, and putting yourself above what He has said, which is tantamount to putting yourself above God. In addition, you are encouraging others to reject His Word as well. You would do well to remember that the Bible says those who lead others astray will pay a much higher price in eternity. You would also do well to remember that you are a mere human, not qualified to question or contradict God, which goes beyond deception and becomes heresy.

If this sounds like a rebuke, well, it is. I hope it is gentle enough that you will hear the message, and strong enough that you will repent, and set your feet on the right path, which is very narrow indeed.

May you know the full grace and strength of God now and throughout eternity.
