Jesus Christ was baptized and “sealed” to Mary Magdelene (Mormon - Open)
Further Light And Knowledge ^ | June 1, 2010 | Helen Radkey

Posted on 06/02/2010 1:47:13 PM PDT by reaganaut

Jesus of Nazareth, also known as Jesus Christ, or simply Jesus, is the central figure of Christianity. The life and sermons of Jesus form the basis of the Christian faith. Jesus Christ is recognized by believing Christians as God incarnate, the Son of God who was raised from the dead—the Redeemer of mankind—the most important figure in history.

According to Mormon doctrine, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. However, it seems that even the perceived Savior of the world is not exempt from LDS temple rituals. Proxy rites for Jesus Christ were performed in the Salt Lake (LDS) Temple in Utah, in April 2010. The Salt Lake Temple, located on Temple Square in the heart of Mormon-dominated Salt Lake City, was dedicated on April 6, 1893—three years before Utah became a state in 1896—and is one of the oldest of the 132 currently operating temples that are owned and maintained by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS.)

New FamilySearch is the online genealogy database of the LDS Church that contains updated details of LDS temple ordinances that have been done for dead people. There are multiple listings for Jesus Christ in New FamilySearch—under different versions of his identity—which have been submitted by individual Mormons. It is not known how many times Jesus has been subjected to LDS rites because all New FamilySearch records for him—including combined records—show LDS ordinance details as “Not Available.”

On May 27, 2010, there were two similar records for Jesus in New FamilySearch which had been submitted by the same person. One listing was titled “Jesus Christian,” and showed “Jesus Christian” was born “before 1500 Bethlehem, Israel,” and died “before 1550 Jerusalem, Israel.” LDS ordinances were tagged as “Not available” on this record. The other entry was for “Jesus Cristian,” who was born “before 1502 Bethlehem, Israel,” and died “before 1539 Jerusalem, Israel.” The entry for “Jesus Cristian” gave a description of LDS ordinances, along with the name of a spouse—“Maria Magdelena.”

“Jesus Cristian” was baptized and confirmed a member of the LDS Church by proxy on April 8, 2010 in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.” “Jesus Cristian” was also subjected to initiatory temple ordinances on April 8, 2010; an endowment ceremony on April 9, 2010; and a marriage “sealing” to “spouse” “Maria Magdelena” on April 9, 2010—all rites occurred in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.”

It appears the submissions for “Jesus Christian,” and “Jesus Cristian” were attempts to manipulate the identity of Jesus Christ through the LDS temple system. The misspelled “Cristian,” instead of “Christian,” could have been a typo, or a deliberate error. It may have been intentionally entered as “Cristian” to get around a computer program that automatically blocks submissions that contain the names “Jesus Christ.” That would explain why the entry for “Jesus Christian” shows LDS ordinances as “Not available.”

While both New FamilySearch records in question lack complete birth and death data, and give imprecise “before” years of these events—the first name “Jesus” combined with the surnames “Christian” and “Cristian” (both spins on the name of “Christ”) are signs that “Jesus Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” are pseudonyms for Jesus Christ.

Other indicators on the New FamilySearch records that point to Jesus Christ are the birth place, “Bethlehem,” and the death location, “Jerusalem.” (Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem and died outside the walls of old Jerusalem.) Another clue to the identity of “Jesus Cristian” is the name of his “spouse”—“Maria Magdelena,” a misspelled variant of Mary Magdalene. “Maria Magdelena” is not listed on the “Jesus Christian” record.

Because “Jesus Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” have similar names and identical birth and death locations—“Bethlehem” and “Jerusalem,” they are probably the same person. Their birth and death years are similar, but not the same. The estimated dates listed for these events look like they have been fabricated. According to their New FamilySearch records, “Jesus Christian” and “Jesus Cristian” were born and died in the 16th century. “Jesus Christian” lived roughly 50 years, while “Jesus Cristian” died in his thirties.

On May 27, 2010, “Maria Magdelena” was listed in New FamilySearch with her birth date as “1504 Israel,” and death date as “before 1540 Israel.” Both years are likely inventions. Along with “spouse” “Jesus Cristian,” “Maria Magdelena” was baptized and confirmed a member of the LDS Church by proxy on April 8, 2010 in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.” She was subjected to initiatory temple ordinances on April 8, 2010; an endowment ceremony on April 9, 2010; and the marriage “sealing” to “Jesus Cristian” on April 9, 2010—all rites were done in the “Salt Lake City Utah Temple.”

Mary Magdalene is described in the New Testament as a faithful follower of Jesus. Because the concept of marriage is strongly emphasized in LDS teachings, the notion that a spousal relationship existed between Jesus and Mary Magdalene is common among Mormons—although that belief is not formal LDS doctrine. There is no reliable historical evidence to indicate that Jesus was married—to Mary Magdalene, or anyone else.

LDS Church officials have publicly stated that the New FamilySearch program is a technological deterrent to improper submissions. Yet—under their very noses—on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Jesus Christ—under a false name—two millennia after his birth, was offered Mormon salvation and an erroneous eternal marriage sealing.

Sometime late in the day on May 27, 2010, the individual entries for “Jesus Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” were scrubbed from New FamilySearch—concealing the evidence that LDS rites had recently been performed for these two names in the Salt Lake Temple. The sudden disappearance of these records is a strong indication that “Jesus Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” represent Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.

Weird. Don’t think Mary Magdalene was the woman Jesus was “sealed” to. IMO it was Mary of Bethany, Lazarus’ sister.

It is offensive, insulting to my Lord, heretical for starters.

It is also against their policy that only descendants can do this work. The policy that was put in place because of their baptizing Jewish holocaust victims.

In Mormonism He can have them both in eternal polygamy. Maybe you should submit the name of Mary of Bethany to have her work completed so she too can be sealed to Jesus Christ.

(Gag)

According to most LDS, it was both of them, Martha as well.

Jesus was a polygamist according to some of their leaders.

It is not only offensive to sensibilities it is blasphemy to the highest order.
If there ever was any credibility to anything that lds said, they have now demonstrated there ZERO credibility to their entire belief system.

Appalling and a tick or two past redundant.

besides, baptizing Jesus Christ as a Christian (assuming the LDS argument which I don't)?

Hum...

Seems he could have by passed all that with his connections...

Well those with little to no knowledge of Christ could see this and be lead away from Christianity, especially with the Mormon PR effort so focused on the “we are Christians too (but better)” sales pitch...

God, who is rather busy himself, weeps at every lost soul, should such be any less a concern to us?

You would think with a last name of Christ He would have gotten an exemption.

But, alas, no, apparently John the Baptist didn’t hold the ‘proper priesthood authority’, which begs the question. If John the Baptist didn’t have the proper authority, then what was he doing ordaining Smith and Cowdery to the priesthood?

And if Christ had to be ordianed that doesn’t make sense either.

And how could He be a god without knowing the secret handshakes they learn in the endowment ceremonies??

This brings up A LOT of questions.

That is a VERY VERY common ‘faith promoting rumor’ among the LDS. Everyone knows at least ONE person who has ‘traced their genealogy all the way back to Adam and Eve’.

Yeah, but he was just an apostle or a prophet (or both) so it wasn't “official” unless it was then it wasn't because it would be unless it was considered that way which it would not because it couldn't.

See how it works in the LDS?

Easy peasy...

LOL! You mean like this man, our very own FReeper Delphi User, who said he has four lines that go back to Adam?

The problem is, we have been commanded, I don't know how, I don't need to know everything, I just know I'm supposed to get started, so I have. My family has four lines back to Adam, once you get to Noah, it's pretty easy.

The LDS really is big on door to door down here ... I’ve been following what SNL and Comedy Central have been doing regarding mocking Christianity. It’s easy for them to do it because we believe that in the final judgment they’ll be the ones who are mocked ... they’re afraid in this world what Muslims will do ... they should be more concerned what God will do later ....

Makes perfect sense according to their doctrine. Jesus could not become a god with his own planet unless he was a mormon with at least a couple of wives.. he did have to make his way past Joseph Smith for admission to the celestial kingdom

One step further it is OVERTLY blasphemous.

To say that Jesus Christ had to be baptized, confirmed, ordained, endowded and married by the ‘proper authority’ is inane!

HE IS THE AUTHORITY! He IS our only High Priest!

If Jesus needed to be baptized into a “Christian faith”(again just follow me here)then how could he be baptized into a “Christian”faith?

Kinda like one of those Star Trek time travel loops....
