WTF is Glenn Beck smoking?

Anyone else see his piece today about Iran launching a new telecom satellite? He looked like a racist douche by naming it, then basically saying, "I don't speak Iranian jibber-jabber," and explaining that he didn't know what the translation to it was. He then immediately asked a pundit what it had to do with the end times. Like the four horsemen have been waiting for a phone call to start armageddon, and the only person with their number is the last asshole without a phone in Iran. Yeesh! He's gotten way wierder since he went to Fox.

Give me a dollar.

Not lost it, just wierd

The thing about Iran launching a comm satallite is that it proves the capability of producing long range nuclear weapons. That is what Glenn Beck is worried about.

'96 GT, PI conversion ,lots of bolt ons, Mach 1 chrome rims, NOS, and still not enough power. Not only looks slow, it is slow.

I'm wondering just how long this is going to be allowed to go on. I'm really shocked that they haven't been bombed into the ground yet.

He could've just said that, and not launched directly into an analysis of Revelations.

And while this is going on, combined with the election, and the Wars, everybody stopped talking about the fact that Iran is still developing their nuclear weapons program. Infact, if I remember correctly, it's supposed to come online in 2010, right???

DUDE!! Have you even been watching him while he was on CNN??? If you did, then you would know that he was talking about the "End Times" while he was still with CNN!!! EVERYTHING going on right now fits into Revelations. What's wrong with him expressing his beliefs??? If you don't want to hear it, don't listen.

Exactly. If the people who discount the Bible would compare current events and things being discussed, ie: global economy, it should be MORE than enough to prove the validity of Gods Word.

Christians have been saying this is the "end times" for 2000 years. During the Dark Ages they said it was the end times, around 1000 A.D. they said it was the end times. Millions said it was the end times from 1929-45 & Hitler was the antichrist.

Yep.

Beck has always been a little kooky. He has a bad habit of being super logical and squared away on one topic then turn around and blow things into sensationalist proportions on another. Not overly consistent.

And???? The difference is that people now are actually listening to what the Bible says instead of picking out a couple of things and then saying that it's the End Times. You might want to pick up a Bible and actually analyze what is being said instead of assuming that it's BS.

You assume that this amazing analysis wasn't done in the past, but it was.... Shit, take enough shots at it and maybe you'll be right one of these times.

If you analyze world conditions of 1940, that time was far more in alignment with biblical end time prophesies than current conditions.

I dunno...... in 1940 they did not have the technology to "spread the word to the ends of the earth" (Matt 24:14) nor did they have the means to implement a cashless society (Rev 13:17). We easily have that now with computers and tv. And the political climate is all kinds of lined up and prepared for a lot of the things that are to come.

No, I meant, READ the Bible, THEN analyze WHY people are saying that these are the "End Times" compared to back in the day when people took one or two things that the Bible said, and then concluded that it was the "End Times".

LoL. Oh yeah, like the "One World Economy/One World Dollar" (IE:the Euro-Dollar) that we were going towards while in the 1940s??? Like the weather changes that the Bible predicted would happen? Don't recall that in the 1940s there were such extreme weather conditions like the Bible predicted. Don't recall that there was the extreme famines, pestilence, and earthquakes in 1940s like there are now, that the Bible predicted. I don't recall that Israel was the center of alot of the negative things that were going on in the 1940s, like the Bible predicted. OHHH YEAH!!! That's right, there was no Israel until AFTER World War 2!! I don't recall people actually worshipping Hitler the world around like the Bible said would happen with the AntiChrist, infact alot of Germans hated him.

You sound like someone who wants to be right rather than someone who actually researches their opnion before making it...

Weather: You do realize that the winters of 1942-44 was coldest in centuries?

Earthquakes:The number of seismic stations has increased from about 350 in 1931 to many thousands today. As a result, many more earthquakes are reported than in the past, but this is because of the vast improvement in instrumentation, rather than an increase in the number of earthquakes. The USGS estimates that, since 1900, there have been an average of 18 major earthquakes (magnitude 7.0-7.9) and one great earthquake (magnitude 8.0 or greater) per year, and that this average has been relatively stable.[13] In recent years, the number of major earthquakes per year has decreased, although this is thought likely to be a statistical fluctuation rather than a systematic trend. More detailed statistics on the size and frequency of earthquakes is available from the USGS.[14]


Famine: Millions starved to death in Russia during 1941-43, and more millions starved in Manchuria

Israel: Israel was created as a direct consequnce of WWII

Antichrist: Hitler was seen as the antichrist, since he was an exception speaker, LOVED in much of Europe prior to 1938.

One world currency: With virtually all of Europe on the German Mark by the end of 1940, If the British had lost the Battle of Britain, we were have had 70% of the world on the German Mark.

Recreation of the Holy Roman Empire: Hitler's ally, Benito Mussolini was going to recreate the Holy Roman Empire.

Shit, Paul thought he was literally living in the end times. If you truly believe, you can't predict the second coming, anyway. Looking for that to be the first reason behind others' actions is absurd.

Well, maybe you have your Bible down but from the post above your history sucks...so, I guess, you wouldn't know.
