Skip to comments.Know Mormons' beliefs before voting for them
Posted on 07/16/2011 7:24:33 AM PDT by greyfoxx39
In response to whether the public should vote for a Mormon for president, one should know what beliefs a candidate had.
Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman have Mormon roots and they have been vague about their beliefs and loyalty to the LDS church.
Mormon theology includes ideas like their priesthood brethren will become the government leaders, or future kings of the world, in a globalized theocracy, and that their male leaders will take over when a second coming of Christ occurs. They believe they are the pre-ordained leaders to rule over a coming theocratic kingdom.
Worthy Mormon males are temple attending, dressing in white with special learned handshakes, altar rituals, Masonic rites and gestures and do secretive activities different from normal society.
They believe they are the future gods of new worlds in a life after this one. They follow prophets with ever-changing doctrine and change their fictional "Book of Mormon" every time it is found to be un-politically correct.
Their women are taught they are good for breeding, to have large families.
A member of this cult is loyal to its church leaders and to whatever their modern prophets tell them is gospel, which changes at their will.
They claim to be Christian, but Mormon polytheism of many gods/goddesses in a hereafter, rituals that must be performed in their temples, garment wearing and works (not grace) that saves a person is different ideology.
It is debatable whether Mormons are Christians, and they have other scriptures special to Mormonism written by their leaders, not just the New Testament, like their Doctrine and Covenants and Book of Mormon.
To learn about them and their practices, beliefs and personal character will help us determine whether they are the future leaders of Americans. Or are they really stuck in their controversial past?
One thing we know for certain, based on direct observation, Romney and Huntsman are RINOS!
what does the fact of a candidate not being Christian have to do with voting for a conservative?????I would vote for a black jew in order to remove zer0bama the Marxist...
I would vote for a Mormon....
I will not vote, however, for Mitt Romney and not because of his religion...but because he is a RINO sc*mbag who was the architect of Obamacare.....he is probably the only republican I would stay home for in 2012...or at least vote third-party....
MMmmmm. Probably because they have been out into the wider world and are not all that loyal. Call it secularization, sophistication, or agnosticism, or whatever you will. But, when was the last time you saw Romney, Huntsman, or Harry Reid coming out of an LDS church? Do they even attend? Against that backdrop, consider Obama's steady attendance at the church of Reverend Wright.
Know any candidate’s beliefs before voting for them. Duh.
What is your stand on the right to bear arms?
What is your stand on abortion?
What is your stand on socialized medicine?
Huntsman, Romney and Reid are all temple mormons.
I’d say mine’s Perry.
There is no danger of Mormons achieving a working majority in any branch of government any time soon. I am less concerned about the upfront Mormon who practices his religion (and whose political application in the political sphere in actual law is largely decent) than in the secular atheist/humanist who doesn’t even realize of doesn’t care that he is forcing his worldview into everybody’s personal life.
It is no worse to be a polytheist than to be a pantheist, atheist or deist.
Traditionally-minded Catholics, conservative Christians of all stripes, practicing Mormons, observant Jews and non-denominational theists with a good grounding in natural law all have a deep interest in undoing the radicals who explicitly started their takeover in the 60s and are continuing it to this day.
What is your stand on the right to bear arms? Romney, Huntsman - opposed
What is your stand on abortion? Romney, Huntsman - support
What is your stand on socialized medicine? Romney, Huntsman - support
They are polytheists and therefore CANNOT be Christian.
As I have posted here before, I once heard a Mormon elder explain that “Earth’s God” was sent here by “Twelve other gods.”
But, when was the last time you saw Romney, Huntsman, or Harry Reid coming out of an LDS church? Do they even attend?
- - - - -
Romney and Reid, yes. They are both ‘active’ (to use the LDS term), have temple recommends, and church jobs (callings).
Huntsman is more of a ‘jack Mormon’. Reid and Romney are both TBM (True Blue or Truly Brainswashed) Mormons. They are true believers in Mormonism.
Biblical Jesus - eternal
lds jesus - created
Biblical Jesus - paid the price on the Cross
lds jesus - paid the price in the garden
Biblical Jesus - sufficient, He alone can Save
lds jesus - not sufficient IE after all we can do
mormonISM is not Christianity, it is not debatable.
I would NEVER vote for a Mormon. I know to much about their religion (see tagline) to ever trust them in a position of power.
You may want to check out Rocky Hulse’s book “When Salt Lake City Calls” if you think Mormonism wouldn’t affect a presidency negatively.
Si, Si ;
I agree with your first two paragraphs.
While the lesser of 2 evils is evil -
it is also lesser
Jews listen to Rabbis
Catholics listen to Bishops
Protestants listen to Wesley, Calvin, Baker, Sweigart, etc..
Incorrect. mormons supported Reid over Angle.
