“What the Mormons have done is nothing short of blasphemous.”
Hold the phone. If you think that Mormons and our beliefs are just goofy nonsense, then why do you care what we do? In other words, if you do not believe that “sealings” are real, then what does it matter to you?
Please leave us alone to practice our faith and we will do the same for you. Thanks.
Be sure to have your tinfoil hat on so you can receive the message ;)
This is exactly what I have been talking about....
SD, it is your OWN faiths “prophets” and leaders saying this.
If you really wanted to stop hearing “heinous” things (and worse) about Jesus Christ and disassociate yourself from such things you would run from Mormonism as fast as you can.
That you don't...
If it was not someone stupid, it was someone malicious attempting to cause trouble for the Church.
Someone on the inside with pull doesnt like the mormons ???
Monson ??? No its his gravy train...
Dallin H Oakes ??? No its his bully pulpit...
a digrunted member who doesnt want the mormon corporation to waste his 10% tithe building malls when he cant feed his own children ???
So who was it ???
Its no secret...
to the mormons anyway...
It is heinous that the Savior may have had more than one wife, but not that Joseph Smith or Brigham Young did?
Seriously Saundra, I wonder how you could ever believe the stuff of Mormonism.
Jesus was a polygamist according to some of their leaders.
Yes the mormons do say that He was...
Oh, by the way, Helen Radkey is some weirdo new-age freak and most certainly obsessed with trying to discredit The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
You are in bed with a strange one, reaganaut.
The LDS stole Christ from Christianity and malign his name and mission.
We are not talking about some “other faith” like Jews or Muslims that practice their wholly own unique faith, but an impostor cult that has co-opted and corrupted the most significant part of a real faith and is trying to pass itself off as a "better" version of the very faith it stole from.
So no, the LDS will not be left alone until it gives back what is not theirs.
Reaganaut: Jesus was a polygamist according to some of their leaders.
Sandy: Would you please stop saying heinous things about my savior. Thank you.
Oh so the guy that said that is your savior ???
Yes that was a heinous thing that the mormons say about Jesus...
Does your bishop know you think that ???
mormons are suppose to “sustain” all the mormon doctriness
Are these words by Mormon Apostles heinous? WAKE UP, SANDY!!!!
“How was it with Mary and Martha, and other women that followed him [Jesus]? In old times, and it is common in this day, the women, even as Sarah, called their husbands Lord; the word Lord is tantamount to husband in some languages, master, lord, husband, are about synonymous... When Mary of old came to the sepulchre on the first day of the week, instead of finding Jesus she saw two angels in white, ‘And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?’ She said unto them,’ Because they have taken away my Lord,’ or husband, ‘and I know not where they have laid him.’ And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.’ Is there not here manifested the affections of a wife. These words speak the kindred ties and sympathies that are common to that relation of husband and wife” (Journal of Discourses 2:81).
“Now there was actually a marriage; and if Jesus was not the bridegroom on that occasion, please tell who was. If any man can show this, and prove that it was not the Savior of the world, then I will acknowledge I am in error. We say it was Jesus Christ who was married, to be brought into the relation whereby he could see his seed, before he was crucified” (Journal of Discourses 2:82).
“I discover that some of the Eastern papers represent me as a great blasphemer, because I said, in my lecture on Marriage, at our last Conference, that Jesus Christ was married at Cana of Galilee, that Mary, Martha, and others were his wives, and that he begat children” (Journal of Discourses 2:210).
Mormon Apostle Orson Pratt agreed with his contemporary when he wrote,
“One thing is certain, that there were several holy women that greatly loved Jesus — such as Mary, and Martha her sister, and Mary Magdalene; and Jesus greatly loved them, and associated with them much; and when He arose from the dead, instead of showing Himself to His chosen witnesses, the Apostles, He appeared first to these women, or at least to one of them — namely, Mary Magdalene. Now it would be natural for a husband in the resurrection to appear first to his own dear wives, and afterwards show himself to his other friends. If all the acts of Jesus were written, we no doubt should learn that these beloved women were His wives” (The Seer, p.159).
On page 172 of the same book, Pratt wrote,
“We have now clearly shown that God, the Father had a plurality of wives, one or more being in eternity, by whom He begat our spirits as well as the spirit of Jesus His First Born... We have also proved most clearly that the Son followed the example of his Father, and became the great Bridegroom to whom kings’ daughters and many honorable Wives to be married.”
On July 22, 1883, Wilford Woodruff recorded the words of Joseph F. Smith in his journal. At the time Woodruff was an LDS apostle while Smith was a member of the First Presidency serving as second counselor to President John Taylor. Woodruff wrote,
“Evening Meeting. Prayer By E Stephenson. Joseph F Smith spoke One hour & 25 M. He spoke upon the Marriage in Cana at Galilee. He thought Jesus was the Bridgegroom and Mary & Martha the brides. He also refered to Luke 10 ch. 38 to 42 verse, Also John 11 ch. 2 & 5 vers John 12 Ch 3d vers, John 20 8 to 18. Joseph Smith spoke upon these passages to show that Mary & Martha manifested much Closer relationship than Merely A Believer which looks Consistet. He did not think that Jesus who decended throug Poligamous families from Abraham down & who fulfilled all the Law even baptism by immersion would have lived and died without being married.” (Wilford Woodruff’s Journal 8:187, July 22, 1883, spelling left intact).
To my knowledge there is no evidence to indicate that Woodruff disagreed with Smith’s comments. Woodruff and Smith later became Mormonism’s fourth and sixth presidents.
What the Mormons have done is nothing short of blasphemous.
Yes it is...
But then the mormons have always been anti-Christianity...
The level of delusion needed to stay a mormon once one gets sucked in and learns what it really teaches is breathtaking.
Because I am a Christian anything that anyone does that harms the truth of the gospel affects me. It grieves my heart. It clashes with my belief that God calls us to defend His truth. It harms my brothers and sisters in Christ. And it offends me.
I will not simply leave Mormons alone to commit blasphemy and turn a blind eye to it. I will call a falsehood a falsehood whenever I see one. Jesus would expect nothing different from me.
I’m not going to be silenced, Saundra.
Oh, by the way, mormonism is some weirdo new-age cult most certainly obsessed with trying to discredit The Church of Jesus Christ.
There! Fixed it for ya.
Fair enough, but the next question should be, is she wrong?
Please leave us alone to practice our faith ________________________________________________________
Just dont include the Jesus of Christianity in your foul unBiblical religion of mormonism...
Please leave us alone to practice our faith and we will do the same for you.
Kid the mormons have not left Christians alone to “practice our faith” since Joey Smith first invented mormonism because the Smith family were ex-communicated from the Presbyterian Church in Palmyra NY on 29 March 1830...
When are the mormons going to leave Christians alonje ???
Please leave us alone to practice our faith and we will do the same for you.
Kid the mormons are the ones who send 50,000 aggressive salesmen to the Christians doors...
Is this about to stop ???
I’ll get the coffee...
Jesus was a polygamist according to some of their leaders. [me]
Would you please stop saying heinous things about my Savior. Thank you. [ Sandy]

I agree it is a hineous thing to say about Jesus (that he was a polygamist) but it wasn’t MY leaders that said it, it was YOURS (LDS), so maybe you should take it up with SLC, because it was still common belief in LDS circles (both church and BYU) in the 1990’s:
# Jedediah M. Grant - Jesus and his disciples were persecuted for being polygamists Journal of Discourses, vol. 1, p. 346 (1853)
# Orson Hyde - Jesus is understood to be married. Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 80 (1854)
# Orson Hyde - Jesus was the bridegroom at Cana of Galilee, and lived to see his own children. Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p. 82 (1854)
# Orson Hyde - “It will be borne in mind that once on a time, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and on a careful reading of that transaction , it will be discovered that no less a person than Jesus Christ was married on that occasion. If he was never married, his intimacy with Mary and Martha, and the other Mary also whom Jesus loved, must have been highly unbecoming and improper to say the best of it.” Journal of Discourses, vol. 4, p. 259 (1857)
# Joseph F. Smith - Plural marriage is not some sort of superfluity or non-essential to the salvation or exaltation of mankind. Marriage to only one woman is only partial compliance to the law of exaltation. Journal of Discourses, vol. 20, p. 28 (1878)
Orson Pratt - Jesus a polygamist, God the Father had a plurality of wives. “We have also proved that both God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ inherit their wives in eternity as well as in time.” The Seer, p. 172 (1853)
We have now clearly shown that God, the Father had a plurality of wives, one or more being in eternity, by whom He begat our spirits as well as the spirit of Jesus His First Born We have also proved most clearly that the Son followed the example of his Father, and became the great Bridegroom to whom kings daughters and many honorable Wives to be married. The Seer, p. 172, Orson Pratt
When Joseph Fielding Smith was asked if this meant that Christ had children, Joseph Fielding Smith wrote, Yes! But do not preach it! The Lord advised us not to cast pearls before swine! (Letter to J. Ricks Smith, dated March 17, 1963)
It will be borne in mind that once on a time, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and on a careful reading of that transaction, it will be discovered that no less a person than Jesus Christ was married on that occasion. If he was never married, his intimacy with Mary and Martha, and the other Mary also whom Jesus loved, must have been highly unbecoming and improper to say the best of it. Journal of Discourses 4:259, Orson Hyde
There are those in this audience who are descendants of the Lords Twelve Apostles-and, shall I say it, yes, descendants of the Savior himself. His seed is represented in the body of these men.

Celsus was a heathen philosopher; and what does he say upon the subject of Christ and his Apostles, and their belief? He says, the grand reason why the Gentiles and philosophers of his school persecuted Jesus Christ, was because He had so many wives; there were Elizabeth, and Mary, and a host of others that followed Him. After Jesus went from the stage of action, the Apostles followed the example of their master. . . The grand reason of the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, casing his crucifixion, was evidently based on polygamy,. . .a belief in the doctrine of plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesus, and his followers. We might almost think they were Mormons.

The Scripture says that He, the Lord, came walking in the Temple, with His train; I do not know who they were, unless His wives and children.

Sunday I Attended the Sabbath School Conference
. Joseph F. Smith spoke one hour & 25 minutes. He spoke upon the Marriage in Cana at Galilee. He taught Jesus was the Bridgegroom and Mary & Martha the brides. He also refered to Luke 10 ch. 38 to 42 verse, Also John 11 ch. 2 & 5 vers John 12 Ch 3d vers, John 20 8 to 18. Joseph Smith spoke upon these passages to show that Mary & Martha manifested much Closer relationship than merely a believer which looks consister. He did not think that Jesus who decended through Poligamous families from Abraham down & who fulfilled all the Law even baptism by immersion would have lived and died without being married.

I discover that some of the Eastern papers represent me as a great blasphemer, because I said, in my lecture on Marriage, at our last Conference, that Jesus Christ was married at Cana of Galilee, that Mary, Martha, and others were his wives, and that he begat children. All that I have to say in reply to that charge is thisthey worship a Savior that is too pure and holy to fulfil the commands of his Father. I worship one that is just pure and holy enough to fulfil all righteousness; not only the righteous law of baptism, but the still more righteous and important law to multiply and replenish the earth. Startle not at this! for even the Father himself honored that law by coming down to Mary, without a natural body, and begetting a son; and if Jesus begat children, he only did that which he had seen his Father do.
- The Apostle Orson Hyde, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 2, p. 210
Heber taught, as did a few other Mormons of his day, that Christ was marriedindeed that Christ was married to both Mary and Martha and that the famous wedding of Cana was in reality Christs own wedding. In his own mind Heber was not only a follower of Christ, but a literal descendant. In his last public sermon, two months before his death, he said, You do not know who Heber C. Kimball is, or you would do better.If one can accept the possibility of Christs marriage, then such a descent is possible.
- Biography of Apostle Heber C. Kimball, p. 275
We are not informed at what time Jesus was to be married to this kins daughter or to any of the rest of His wives. But from what John the Baptist says, He may have been married to some of them previous to that prophets martyrdom: The passage is as follows; He that hath the Bride is the Bridegroom: but the friend of the Bridegroom, which standeth and heareth Him, rejoiceth greatly because of the Bridegrooms voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3: 29, 30.) And again, Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the Bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the Bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. (Mathew 9: 15.) John represents Jesus as already in the possession of the Bride; while the Saviour confirms what John says, by calling Himself the Bridegroom, and the disciples the children of the Bridechamber, but who the Bride was neither of them informs us. Whether Jesus had married any of His wives at that time or not, it is very evident that there will be a marriage of the Son of God at the time of His second coming: for Jesus said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
-The Apostle Orson Pratt, The Seer, Vol.1, No.11, p. 169-p.
Promote Joe Smith. Most of the material in the LDS is already set up in that direction any ways.
And if he was a good Mormon, and he should be if anyone was, certainly he is a god by now.
So really it would be a lateral transfer...
