I read a great blog post by Russell D. Moore that kind of launched from Glenn Beck and the rally he hosted Saturday in D.C. You can read it here.

I don’t want to talk about Russell Moore, ’cause I have no idea who he is. He appears to be evangelical and an author. That’s all I know.

Neither do I want to talk about Glenn Beck. I know he’s stirred up some emotion lately from both sides, but I don’t really know Glenn Beck either. And neither do you, really.

But Moore’s blog discusses a deeper concern that Beck is only the face of right now. And the concern, the article, is a good – or at the very least an interesting – one. An exerpt:

This is, of course, not new. Our Lord Jesus faced this test when Satan took him to a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth, and their glory. Satan did not mind surrendering his authority to Jesus. He didn’t mind a universe without pornography or Islam or abortion or nuclear weaponry. Satan did not mind Judeo-Christian values. He wasn’t worried about “revival” or “getting back to God.” What he opposes was the gospel of Christ crucified and resurrected for the sins of the world.

    Thank God for discernment, for unquenchable love and the Gospel of Truth that can’t be masked as anything else. May veils be lifted and generations turn to the Lord… may we be among the remnant, by His Mercy and Grace.
