This Pastor quotes passages from Glenn Beck's new book where he promotes new age principles. Very interesting.
The information on the LDS church is wrong and based on hearsay and quotes from members who have left the Church, but the info on Glenn's new book sound intriguing.

He says Glen Beck rejects original sin and Christ's atonement. He cherry picks brief phrases to make his ridiculous point. I assume the next sentence would more fully explain Beck's point. The pastor warns that Mormons don't believe God create the earth. He only organized it (gasp). The pastor willfully misunderstands and misrepresents LDS theology. Definitely NOT a reputable source for what is and is not truth.
I have not read Beck's book. I am not a Beck fan. But I know a hack job when I see it.
I agree with Mark; don't waste your 26 minutes on this one!

I have the book. When I am feeling better I will write a review. There are some new age leaning ideas, or ones that can be read as that. When my health improves I will finish the book and expound on what it is really about.
" I spent decades of my life disconnected from faith and denying that free will exists in the this world. I saw my circumstances as something thrust upon me , rather then the result of my own choices. I now realize those beliefs were simply the next in a very long line of misguided assumptions.
There not only is such a thing as free will in the world , but it exists even when it seems to be invisible. It crosses traditional lines of belief. My faith calls it agency. My father's granola-hippie-New Age spirituality (which I actually really agree with) simply said, "Life is a series of choices." Either way , free will could have been my lifeline- if only I had believed it existed."
