Perry, in response, said that he does not believe Romney is a member of a cult. A lot of FReepers will be disappointed in Perry for saying that.
If believing that Jesus Christ is my Savior makes me a member of a cult, I am guilty as charged. If believing in Jesus Christ, that He suffered and died for me to save me from my sins, makes me NOT a Christian, I am guilty as charged. P.S. I thank my Heavenly Father that this pastor is not my judge; he is not qualified or authorized to condemn anyone to hell. He looks just plain silly and makes Perry look bad, too.

What makes you a member of cult, Sandy, is the LDS teachings you fail to mention...like you can become Gods, Jesus is only one of 3 gods of the godhead, Jesus is a created being, God wasn’t always God, Jesus only saves you ‘after all you can do’ and you have to ‘pay him back’, that the Bible is corrupt, that Christ died only so you could be resurrected, exaltation (aka Heaven for Christians) only comes to good ‘worthy’ temple LDS.
And I can source all of those using LDS sources if you would like.

Articles of Faith
The Articles of Faith outline 13 basic points of belief of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Prophet Joseph Smith first wrote them in a letter to John Wentworth, a newspaper editor,
in response to Mr. Wentworth's request to know what members of the Church believed.
They were subsequently published in Church periodicals.
They are now regarded as scripture and included in the Pearl of Great Price.
THE ARTICLES OF FAITH
OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
History of the Church, Vol. 4, pp. 535541
- We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
- We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.
- We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
- We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
- We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
- We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.
- We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
- We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
- We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
- We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
- We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
- We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
- We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of PaulWe believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

The preacher endorsed Perry but Perry isn't a Baptist.
Cain is a Baptist preacher.
If we are going to play guilt by association, let's associate all the players not just the selected one.
