Beck to God: I’ll Fast And Thereby Gain Your Favor For What I Want. God To Beck: Not So Fast, Glenn
Someone should tell Glenn Beck that the power of prayer and the miracles described in the Bible don’t work too well in the modern world. If they did, ISIS would have been crushed long ago, tyrants and murderers like Hitler, Stalin and Mao would have never remained long in power, and Barack Obama would have lost his first campaign for president. Unfortunately prayer will not halt evil and this lesson had better be learned by cry-babies like Glenn Beck.
A phrase that has been quoted much since Obama became president is “elections matter”, and people like Glenn Beck should understand that a prayer doesn’t cast a single vote. We now see the evidence proving the prediction that a democracy is at risk when fifty-one percent of the voters can simply vote themselves a pile of government goodies by electing the right candidate. And when combined with a failing education system and a constant litany of anti-American and anti-Capitalist sentiment from the press, we are losing our once great nation.
Glenn Beck tried to convince God that Ted Cruz was a better presidential candidate than Donald Trump, and went on a fast to assure that Cruz would win the latest primary election. It didn’t work. Cruz lost the election to Trump and dropped out of the running. But taking a longer view of this latest expression of public opinion, if Trump is able to defeat Hillary in the general election in November, maybe Beck’s prayers will have been answered, and maybe there is something to this praying thing, because if Hillary is kept out of the Oval Office, evil will have been defeated. We must, after all, be constantly reminded that the Lord works in mysterious ways, and maybe Trump is one of those mysteries; I certainly hope so, although I was betting on Cruz being the eventual candidate.
