John Wilson wakes up, gets ready for his day and heads to work. He has no idea that he's being watched, tracked and studied. Is he a threat to national security? No, he's an ordinary American citizen. What if new laws, media propaganda and secret societies label John a danger to society? And what if all this sets the stage for a biblically-prophesied global government run by the antichrist?
This docudrama features the input of Gary Kah, Chuck Missler, Jack Kinsella, Kathryn Albrecht, and many others.

An Open Letter Concerning Glenn Beck
Over the last few months there have been many questions and much conversation about the popular broadcaster Glenn Beck and his professed Mormon faith. This letter seeks to identify and clear up the confusion concerning both Beck's stand and the marked differences between Mormonism and historic, biblical Christianity. Please understand that we do not write these words in an effort to simply be "right" or to win an argument. The purpose of the letter is to determine the truth - something that Glenn Beck himself constantly lauds.Ed Decker
Let us begin by saying that we appreciate the stand Glenn Beck has made concerning our country, its foundation, and the great need for America to come back to God. Many of us have no doubt learned and gleaned information from Beck's thorough research and many fine, conservative guests. In fact, as he has stated many times on his national television program on the Fox News Channel and on his much-listened to radio program, the only hope America, indeed any person or nation, has is to return to and surrender to God. However, therein lies the problem. When Beck speaks of God, informed Christians must immediately question "which God?"
The unsuspecting or those less informed are given the perception that, when Beck mentions God, it must be the same deity that is spoken of as the Creator in the Holy Bible. To what extent Glenn Beck is grounded in Mormon doctrine or understanding may be debatable. However, he indeed presents himself in much the same manner as that of an "evangelical" Christian and also consistently states that he is indeed a Mormon. Let us be clear. Each person reading this must be warned that Glenn Beck's spirituality - which he claims to be the only solution - is not orthodox, historical Christianity in doctrine, beliefs, or practice.
Put bluntly, the basis of Mormonism exists in the idea of godhood for mankind in a doctrine called "The Law of Eternal Progression." This cultic belief states that God was a man as we are now and (through Mormonism and its erroneous teachings) we humans can become "gods" as well. Mormonism's founder, Joseph Smith, wrote, "... You have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you..." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 348). Though the modern Mormon Church has tried to appear to be "Christian," this belief is the very core teaching of Mormonism. On the "Mormon Jesus," Mormon apostle Bruce R. Hunter, a member of Mormonism's "First Council of the Seventy," emphatically wrote, "The appointment of Jesus to be the Savior of the world was contested by one of the other sons of God. He was called Lucifer, son of the morning. Haughty, ambitious, and covetous of power and glory, this spirit-brother of Jesus desperately tried to become the Savior of mankind" (The Gospel Through the Ages, Milton R. Hunter, p. 15). Though the evidence that separates Mormonism from authentic Christianity is overwhelming, just these two examples should give one pause to question whether the Mormon god and Mormonism's unbiblical Jesus could in any way be construed to be the same as that portrayed in God's holy word, the Bible.
No matter how good the fruit may appear, no matter how much we may agree with his stand on America or politics, no matter how sincere or passionate he may be, we feel it is incumbent on those in apologetics ministry to point out that, if indeed Glenn Beck is a Mormon, he is advocating a religion that is not Christianity in any fashion but instead a false religion responsible for damning the souls of all who follow it. Being close or just using similar terms or phrases do not constitute sound doctrine. These things matter and each of us - Glenn Beck included - needs to examine whether we have placed our faith, hope, and trust in the real Jesus who is able to redeem and save a sinner or in one of the many worthless counterfeits such as the "Jesus" of the Mormon Church.

Is Glenn Beck's "Jesus" the authentic, one and only Son of God or is the Mormon "Jesus" one of many counterfeits? Ask yourself, is YOUR version of Jesus the one reflected in the pages of God's Word, the Bible, or was he once a man who became one of many gods? Can YOUR Jesus save a soul eternally or does he lead you to a religion based on your own righteousness?
2 Corinthians 11:3-4 exhorts us to beware of imposters named "Jesus." Galatians 1:8-9 demands that anything claiming to be of God must harmonize with the original apostolic faith. If someone proclaims "Jesus," it is our responsibility to be sure that they are referring to the biblical Savior - the REAL Jesus.
In this video clip Eric Barger addresses the crowd assembled for the Lamb and Lion Ministries conference in Allen (DFW), Texas, June, 2010. It is excerpted from the seminar DVD "The REAL Jesus vs. The Counterfeits."
