  • The secret world of Mormonism

    This video is a good source of information about the beliefs and practices of the Mormons. My first wife was a Mormon in the reorganized church. I have had missionaries from the Mormon church in my home. When I showed them a photo copy of the original Book of Mormon that was kept in Kirkland Temple ( in Kirkland Ohio near Cleveland) they were livid with rage. That copy stated that Jesus was God Almighty in four places. Joseph Smith later changed his own so called "translation" to state that Jesus was not God. I have never seen more rage that the one man had when I showed this to them. Mormons are very friendly on the outside, but Mormonism is a very dark cult indeed.

    The video is very good on information about the Mormons,but I would state that the Holy Scriptures differs from their prayer in what a person must do to be saved.

    Here area few passages that you should read about salvation:

    Colossians 1 TLB

    20 It was through what his Son did that God cleared a path for everything to come to him—all things in heaven and on earth—for Christ’s death on the cross has made peace with God for all by his blood. 21 This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies and hated him and were separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now he has brought you back as his friends. 22 He has done this through the death on the cross of his own human body, and now as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are standing there before him with nothing left against you—nothing left that he could even chide you for; 23 the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Jesus died for you, and never shifting from trusting him to save you.
    Of course that means trusting in Jesus to save you and NOTHING else.

    Matthew 16 NIV

    24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
    So one must give their life to Jesus and ask Him to do with it as He pleases instead of us being the King of our life. If one trusts in Jesus to save them, of course they would want Him to be the King of their life instead of themselves.

      This is a very sad video about 34 women being convinced to marry Joseph Smith: Smith married many women that were already married and their husband was still alive. Smith married many underage girls. Smith married both of two sisters more that once. Smith married two sets of women that were mother and daughter. God forbids many of these practices in the Bible.

            As if stupid

            Human gullibility and lack of discernment is no better illustrated than in the following Top 10 Amazing Facts of Mormonism by Jill Martin Rische; that is, unless Isaiah 44:15 is referenced.

            15 Then he uses part of the wood to make a fire.
            With it he warms himself and bakes his bread.
            Then—yes, it’s true—he takes the rest of it

            and makes himself a god to worship!
            He makes an idol

            and bows down in front of it!

            There are many things that are of interest. There is only one thing that is of constant concern and bewilderment; that is, human stupidity. Ignorance is forgivable. Thinking as if stupid is not forgivable. Once our stupidity is exposed why do we continue to practice stupidity? Stupidity is not ignorance, for when we learn what is not known, the ignorance about that thing should exist no longer, and we should not continue to think as if stupid about that; but somehow, it doesn't work that way! People receive knowledge about their previous ignorance, yet, continue to think as if stupid about it.
            How does any ancient listener of Isaiah 44:15 continue to worship images made from materials? Yet, most of Israel did continue worshiping idols. That is of constant concern and bewilderment because in exactly the same pathway, most people, including Christians, continue thinking as if stupid, even when knowledge received should prevent their thinking as if stupid.
            Generally, greater the education, the less we think as if stupid; that is to a point. For some who obtain a greater specialization, the contribution in time and labor become such a significant investment, it becomes mentally impossible to abandon the commitment. The history of science and of history itself recalls these obstacles to knowledge where entrenched in places of power are those who continue to think as if stupid. At the other extreme is the novice initiate who is yet to learn what he does not know. In his ignorance he boasts as if stupid.
            Accordingly, our reflected image ought to pray, Dear Lord, illuminate those places where I think as if stupid." However, our contrary self replies to our worthy neighbor who illuminates our ignorance, "You are the one who is ignorant!" Satisfied, we drift off to congratulate ourselves that we are allowed to continue to think as if stupid.

            This is of constant concern and bewilderment,

            [2] Doctrine and Covenants 84:33-9; Goddesses are always subject to a god. Women are denied the Priesthood (meaning they are denied authority—not the same as Catholic priesthood). “In the LDS universe, theologically described as the real eternal universe, each man who achieves the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom is worth many times more than each woman, even the women who qualify at that highest Celestial level, because each man who achieves Godhoodlevel may have numerous God-wives, but each God-wife may have only one husband. This can only mean that each "heavenly father" is worth many times more than each "heavenly mother." And, even if the ratio were strictly one to one, the male God, not the female God, holds the priesthood authority and is the only one of the God parents to whom his earth-mortality children are allowed to pray. So Mormon women can never, NEVER achieve equality with men, no matter how outstanding or righteous the women are. That's just the way it's set up."

            Note from Lou:

            No man but Jesus can claim not to be stupid.

            I have been simply amazed at how brilliant I can be sometimes.

            I have been even more amazed at how stupid I can be at times.
