As some of you know, I got lambasted for recommending Glenn Beck’s books because he’s a mormon. I said to stop judging him based on his beliefs: he still is doing great things for people and this country.
In his new book, “The Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life”, he talks about how he came to Mormonism. He asked a question,”Where’s Gandhi?” Gandhi never accepted Jesus. The Mormon teacher responded by saying, “Would it be fair for one who had never had the chance or opportunity to accept Him to be banished to that lake of fire?” P.148
I had been contemplating this ever since I read it. I knew the logic was flawed somehow and now I have an answer from the Bible. Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
There really is no excuse NOT to know Him, especially in today’s world. We all can buy a Bible. Churches are on every street and we can worship freely. But more than that: God is everywhere we look. How can a human being with a logical mind not stop and think I wonder where all of this came from? And then find the answer: God.
I’m extrapolating here because I don’t know much about the Mormon faith but apparently Mormons take the fluffy view of, “Well, you won’t go to Hell. You just won’t be in Heaven with the rest of us.”
But what does the Bible tell us? John 14:6 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Mr. Beck denies the existence of this “lake of fire” in his book on P. 149 (the fluffy view of what happens to unbelievers). I guess he missed Romans 1:20, Revelation 20:15, John 14:6, and Isaiah 40:21.
