Mormon to Give Commencement Address on Topic of "Faith" at Baptist University

Liberty University has recently been on the radar because of the exaggerations and inconsistencies the seminary's president Ergun Caner has made in regards to his Muslim background.

In addition to that, Liberty has caused much concern over their choice of popular conservative talk show host and unashamed Mormon Glenn Beck to give the commencement address to the 2010 Liberty University graduating class on Saturday, May 15th.

In his May 13th TV broadcast, Beck made a passing comment that the topic of his commencement address to the students of Liberty will be on the importance of "faith".

A Mormon addressing Baptist students on the importance of faith? I just have to ask, what's going on at Liberty University?

My question: Faith in what? If Mormons worship a different God, a different Jesus, and follow a different Gospel (which they do), then this is unmistakably ecumenical and unacceptable.

Same thing that's always been going on there since Falwell was president: compromise.

I don't listen to Glenn Beck very often, but a friend suggested I start listening in order to his latest "religious" talks. I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but Glenn is becoming a sort of self-styled messiah, replete with Bible quotes and pseudo -prophetic visions. It was a bit eerie and practically indistinguishable from much of what you'd hear on most "christian" radio stations.

I prefer not to get my theology from a talk show host -- especially one who still advocates for Joseph Smith. And LU has plenty to answer for.

Mormons believe in the same god, same Christ. They are very much Christians. I'm sure his talk was really good. Judging others isn't very Christian.

You mean like you Mormons have been doing since you deemed your cult "the ONE TRUE church" and referring to all other pastors as messengers of Satan until a few years ago? Mormons are no more Christians thank Muslims are!
