Yep, but Lucifer is the name everyone understands at this point.
How anyone would want to be in the same league as Lucifer by thinking they can be god and even the same as god at some point is beyond me. Just that point alone should scare anyone from ever thinking that being a Mormon is good. Its just plain horrifying if you ask me.
No kidding. Three of them were Mormon Muffins. Still licking my chops. Four more of the cuties were from Chicago and Madison WI. Three from SLC. And a special conservative lady from Oklahoma. Also included were three gay men from San Francisco.
I'm so tolerant when they buy big.
From the 1994 LDS Conference report:
On the other hand, the whole design of the gospel is to lead us onward and upward to greater achievement, even, eventually, to godhood. This great possibility was enunciated by the Prophet Joseph Smith in the King Follet sermon (see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 342-62) and emphasized by President Lorenzo Snow. It is this grand and incomparable concept: As God now is, man may become! (See The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, comp. Clyde J. Williams, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1984, p. 1)
Of course, even Hinckley tried to dodge the fact of this teaching when he hedge in a Time magazine interview a few years later, climing he was 'not sure this was still taught, though he was familiar with the philosophy behind the Snow couplet.'
Really now?!? Which month?
Just how did Jesus "lose" His Bride ???
What are you looking at?
Just watched a documentary that touched on that very subject. So far DNA testing shows this assertion to be...bzzzz.... wrong!
Links please ... I could use it.
Well, I would if I could. It was a documentary on one of the cable stations. I wasn’t paying attention to what station it was as I was at a friend’s house.
Dear Mormons who may be reading this thread,
If you peruse the Free Republic religion forums you will notice a pattern. Theres a group of Christians who spend a great deal of time posting from Official Mormon Sources - both the Book of Mormon as well as Mormon Prophets and Church materials.
You will also notice that many of these Christians are former Mormons who have left Mormonism and come to know the real Jesus Christ and His Gospel of Grace.
They have a passion to reach other Mormons to share what they learned about Salvation by grace and apart from human works.
Of course, they are attacked regularly by a very small group of Mormons who have zeal, but no knowledge beyond what the Mormon Church has told them. They also continually have a difficult time identifying any:
Logical support - that any reasonable person could understand that would validate their Mormon claims.
Consistently, this small group of Mormon posters are forced to face that their faith is based on little more than feelings that cannot be verified.
People deserve more than feelings.
The best they have been able to do is construct ad hominem attacks against Christians, which is always a sign that they have no facts, evidence of logical arguments. You have certainly witnessed this here many times as you read these threads, so I am not telling you anything you havent seen with your own eyes.
After reading both sides on this thread and others, you may very well be wondering about what you were taught when you joined the LDS church.
You also may be wondering how to resolve the lack of facts, evidence and illogical nature of Mormon claims. Many have approached those of us who are Christians asking where to find out more and some, even, to ask how to leave the Church and learn more about Christs Gospel of Grace.
Here are a few links to get you started in your quest to know the Biblical Christ.
You should also feel comfortable private freepmailing any Christians on this thread to ask questions about the concerns you have. We always do our best to directly answer your questions with facts, evidence and logical support from the Bible.
So sez Jehovah's Witnesses and every other 2 bit cult that circles around the edge of true Christianity.
Oh, and Muslims kind of say the same thing.
Nah, it's a pro-PCA thread!
Not a Mormon. Not a Christian, either. Have no desire to be a "Christian" if it means becoming anything like the anti-Mormons who stink up this place with their nasty, mean-spirited, obsessive diatribes.
If they are like Jesus, I have NO use for Jesus.
Most people would NOT go looking thru all those links of PD's to see if they could find something that disagreed with OUR posts.
They'd figger that if it WERE there; PD surely would have posted it!
And just WHO determines how all of the OTHER monies are spent?
Mall rents and cattle ranches and clothing stores make BIG bucks!
“If they are like Jesus, I have NO use for Jesus.”
You have to be pretty small to hide behind a hypocrite...
Same thing with the Archaeological community. Zero evidence of any BOM civilization, not even a shard of pottery.
And BYU and LDS scholars have been moving the location further and further south every decade. Started in New York, now they are trying to claim the Mayans or the Aztecs were the people.
Some folks are just a tick confused.
