David Barton: If You Tithe, God Will Bless You With A Car That Goes 200,000 Miles

On a recent episode of his "Foundation of Freedom" series, David Barton explained to Glenn Beck how, if Christians tithe properly, they will find themselves being rewarded by God with cars that don't break down as often and clothing that will last longer before wearing out.

"Everybody is supposed to pay their 10 percent to God," Barton stated. "And we don't pay that because God needs it, Deuteronomy says you're to pay the tithe, you do that to learn to be Me first. God says the reason you pay the tithe is so that you learn to put Me at the top of what you do."

"I love the example with Cain and Abel," he continued, "he said that Abel brought the first fruits of the flocks and God was pleased with that. It said that Cain, in the course of time, brought the crops to God and God wasn't pleased with what Cain did. So when you do it first thing off of the top, God can really bless that. And I've seen that. We both tithe, we know the benefits of that, suddenly your cars go 200,000 miles rather than 80,000 miles, your clothes don't wear out as fast. It's what the Bible says, [the Israelites] went for 40 years and their sandals never wore out."

Mat Staver: The Fight To Reverse Marriage Equality 'Will Never Be Over'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver declared that the fight against gay marriage will never end because marriage equality is a direct assault on God.

After praising Florida Gov. Rick Scott for signing the "Pastor Protection Act," which shields churches and pastors from being sued for refusing to perform same-sex marriages (something they were already allowed to do), Staver declared that such laws need to be passed all over the country because the fight to undo marriage equality will never stop.

"This issue of marriage," he said, "this attempted redefinition of marriage, some have said, 'Well, it's over with, the Supreme Court has decided, let's move on;' even some presidential candidates, past and present, have made that kind of a statement. What they don't realize is this is not over, it will never be over and there will never be churches, pastors and people of Christian faith and values who will accept this. Period."

"I think that we can ultimately reverse this trend as well," Staver continued. "Pendulums swing and I believe that if you remain faithful, you will ultimately be encouraged by being on the right side of history. People say, 'Well, you're on the wrong side of history.' I would rather be on the side of God's history and the natural created order, millennia of human history than some newfangled idea. This is an assault on marriage and family, our freedom and an assault on God himself."

  • If Glenn Beck really cannot believe that Ann Coulter "would intentionally dump poison in the country's bloodstream," then he is laughably naive.
  • Alveda King says that "just as terrorists breach the sanctuaries of homes around the world, so too does U. S. government establishment seek to breach the sanctuary of the womb by forcing its HHS mandate on Americans despite objections from many of us with deeply held religious beliefs."
  • Michael Brown declares that "Christians Must Unite Now Against Gay Bullies and Their Allies."
  • The Media Research Center is actually complaining that the media spends more time covering "March Madness" than the topic of the national debt.
  • Finally, the AFA's executive vice president Ed Vitagliano says that "the homosexual movement has had such great success because Americans have become idolatrous and arrogantly self-indulgent. Straight America has embraced homosexuality because straight Americans first embraced the sexual revolution for the satisfaction of their own perverse sexual appetites. Thus homosexuality often becomes the barometer of a culture rotting out from the inside." 

Bryan Fischer: Obama Admires And Envies Dictators And Wishes He Could Be One

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer asserted that "President Obama is a guy that envies dictators" and wishes that he could be one.

Fischer was discussing Obama's recent trip to Cuba, which he said left the president wishing that he could wield total control over this nation in the way that foreign communist and socialist dictators control their countries.

"I've always thought that President Obama envies dictators," Fischer stated, "wishes he could be one, envies their power; they don't have to answer to anybody, they can do whatever they want, they can impose their will as policy over an entire nation. And Obama loves that, he envies that, he looks up to them, he admires them because of the kind of power that they have, he wishes he could be one of them, he wants to belong to their club. That is why he is so fawning, he admires them, he respects them, he wants to be them. That is what he always has such a fawning presence when he is with them."

Glenn Beck Doesn't Believe Affair Allegations Because Ted Cruz Has Been Preparing His Entire Life To Be President

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck explained why he doesn't believe the recent National Enquirer story alleging that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has engaged in multiple extramarital affairs.

Among the various reasons why Beck is giving no credence to the story is the fact that Cruz has been raised from birth and been driven his entire life to become president and so he's not stupid enough to throw is all away in this reckless manner.

"This guy is driven," Beck said. "The first time I met his father, I said to him, 'He is going to get into the Senate and he's going to be exactly what he says he's going to be.' This was before he went into the Senate. And he [Cruz's father] said, 'Oh yes, I will kick his ass.' I've told that story a million times. What I haven't said is that at that point, we talked about him being president and I said, 'If he goes into the Senate and he does the right thing, he could be president.' His father said to me, 'I know.'"

"Ted has known that he could be the president from the beginning," Beck continued, noting that Cruz has been preparing for this moment his entire life. "You are not as driven as he is, you are not as smart as he is and then go in for your last four years before you're going to run for president, you don't get to 2012 and be thinking I'm going to run for president and think you can get away with that."

For A Third Time, Janet Porter Claims Her Prayers 'Changed The Results' Of The 2000 Election

During a campaign stop for her ill-fated run for a seat in the Ohio state legislature last month, right-wing activist Janet Porter insisted, for a third time, that her prayers flipped the results of the 2000 presidential election and handed the presidency to George W. Bush.

Porter explained that she had faith in God that her campaign for office could succeed because she had seen God work miracles before, like when He reversed the results in Florida in response to her prayers.

"2000 election. It was Al Gore vs. George W. Bush," she stated. "I was in Broward County, Florida, at the time and I prayed a ridiculous prayer. Did you ever pray a sun-stopping prayer?"

"I was part of the recount team in 2000 and on election night, they declared the election for Al Gore," she explained. "I got down on my knees — Right Wing Watch says that I'm the one responsible, but there were a lot of people who prayed — but I got on my knees and I said, 'God, I'm asking for something that has never been done before, I'm asking you' — it's ridiculous, it sounded ridiculous, it was hard to even form in my mouth, but I said, 'God I'm asking you to change the results of this election.' That's what I prayed. And God changed the results of that election."

  • Ted Cruz has accused "Donald Trump and his henchmen" of planting a false story in the National Enquirer alleging that Cruz has engaged in several extramarital affairs. Trump, of course, denies any involvement.
  • Speaking of Trump, Ben Carson is actually trying to take credit for supposedly convincing him to act more presidential. 
  • Timothy Buchanan says that Trump is the only one who can "break the back of an old political warhorse like El Diablo, Hillary Clinton."
  • Glenn Beck continues to insist that "no real Christian" would ever support Trump.
  • Finally, David Barton invites you to join him for his next "Pastors' Briefing," where you can hear various members of Congress discuss the importance of waging spiritual warfare:

Glenn Beck: Ted Cruz Is Divinely Anointed And Has Been 'Raised From Birth' To Save This Nation

Glenn Beck dedicated an entire segment of his radio program today to responding to a Breitbart article criticizing him for telling Mormons while campaigning for Ted Cruz in Utah recently that they must rise up and save this nation because evangelical Christians in the South "are not listening to their God."

Beck took issue with a comment from Baylor professor Thomas Kidd, who said that while "there are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump ... God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative."

God has, in fact, revealed Cruz to be His divinely anointed choice, Beck insisted.

"To you, Dr. Kidd. To you," Beck responded. "To you God hasn’t revealed Cruz as divinely anointed. I understand that. And I respect your opinion on it. But here’s mine: I have seen this man’s life. I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time. Would there not be someone that was in the pool that might have the right qualifications for God? Is He that disinterested in all of us? Or is it perhaps possible that just like in the Bible, people were raised from birth for a specific time? Are we that inconsequential, Dr. Kidd? Are we really not that important enough for Him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?"
