"I still say Ubama is the anti-Christ."

I am almost in agreement.

I guess you don't play to Hie to Kolob, as in the LDS hymn, "If You Could Hie to Kolob (here, Mitt Romney style)". The Book of Abraham is the only place where Kolob, the planet where the gods live (or star near which the planet is), is mentioned.

Curiously, Joseph Smith, Jr. never said the Book of Abraham was scripture. That was somebody's idea in 1880, when it was canonized.

Don't get me started. The Book of Abraham has been thoroughly debunked by every source in the world - including LDS historians - except rabid apologists who are triple-jointed and intellectually dishonest to suggest it's anything other than a crass attempt to interpret hieroglyphics by somebody who had no idea what he was doing.

I am certainly not saying to ignore the word of God

Yes you are.... Look at what you wrote.

The Bible is a good measure, but that measuring stick was not available at the time of Noah

In Noah's time.... What time is it now? How long has it been since the warning has been sounded in the bible not to be fooled by false prophets? So you want to jump before the warning and apply it now, skip over what Jesus said, to validate Mormonism? That's the work of the devil.

You have to read It, believe It and meditate on it for "IT/TRUTH" to get within you.

Maybe you do. How's it going?

When you read Matthew 24, Christ Jesus speaks of the signs of the times, etc. At least three times in that chapter, He mentions false teachers, Prophets, etc. He also mentions the earthquakes, weather, etc. So, mentioning the false teachers, etc. three times must mean that He felt that was very important to point out three times in 20 something verses.

And as much as I despise Islam, we’re all walking down the same road.

Except Christ himself said:

Matthew 7:13-14

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Also:

John 10:8-9

8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture

Those practicing Islam will not see Heavan unless they repent and accept the God of Isaac, Jacob, and Abraham, and Accept Jesus as their Savior and the only begotten Son of God.

To me, the promise of the Christ means there is no failure. No one is left behind, and a lot of the hellfire and brimstone stuff is something out of a medieval nightmare.

The promise of Christ comes with a Means Test:



John 3:3-16

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Furthermore:

Mark 1:15

15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.


My Faith isn’t in a book.

Given your lack of knowledge concerning Christianity, I would agree with that statement of yours. Do yourself a favor and spend some more time in the Bible.

You have a religion you have made up that pleases your sensibilities, it is NOT the religion God would have you to enjoy, and it definitely isn't going to lead you where you want to be at the end of your life.

I’m pretty sure you know we sing the same ones that you do.

Respectfully, will you be taking a break from Follow the Prophet and Praise to the Man?

LDS Hymn 103
"Praise to the Man"

Praise to the man who communed with Jehovah!
Jesus annointed that Prophet and Seer.
Blessed to open the last dispensation,
Kings shall extol him, and nations revere.

Chorus
Hail to the Prophet, ascended to heaven!
Traitors and tyrants now fight him in vain.
Mingling with Gods, he can plan for his brethren;
Death cannot conquer the hero again.

Praise to his mem'ry, he died as a martyr;
Honored and blest be his ever great name!
Long shall his blood, which was shed by assasins,
Plead unto heav'n while the earth lauds his fame.

Chorus

Great is his glory and endless his priesthood.
Ever and ever the keys he will hold.
Faithful and true he will enter his kingdom,
Crowned in the midst of the prophets of old.

Chorus

Sacrifice brings forth the blessings of heaven;
Earth must atone for the blood of that man.
Wake up the world for the conflict of justice.
Millions shall know 'Brother Joseph' again.

Because I don't think anyone other than Mormons sing praises to Joseph Smith, Jr. And in particular we don't sing that earth must atone for the blood of Joseph Smith, Jr.

And I don't think anyone else but Mormons celebrate Smithmas.

"Years ago a child was born in an obscure village to poor parents residing in a dwelling they did not own but one that was made available to them through the kindness of others. The child grew to be an extraordinary individual and though he died before his 40th birthday, he transformed the society and world in which he lived.

"Dec. 23 will mark the 207th anniversary of the birth of Joseph Smith Jr., the prophet of the Restoration. Joseph entered the world on a cold Monday morning in Sharon, Vt., shortly before the close of 1805."

That's from the LDS newspaper, the The Deseret News, earlier this week.

So it looks as if things are a *touch* different to somebody outside the LDS fold.

My Faith isn’t in a book. WHO says the Council of Nicaea got it right? IMO, The Holy Bible is just a version. Just like The Book of Mormon.

I'm not sure what you believe - if you believe in anything. maybe your emotions or how you'd like it to be. Pretty slim pickings to bet your soul on. It sounds like the "Reconciliation" message my grandfather believed. God was too merciful to send anyone to hell. It's a damnable lie that makes God out to be a liar. God either is or isn't. No two ways about it.

As with most non-believers, you've misused the term "Judging" in biblical terms.

Here is a scripture I bet you hadn't read before concerning "Judging".

1 John 4:1-3

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Furthermore, the bible clearly calls Christians to Rebuke sin:

1 Timothy 5:20

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

Mormonism is a wolf in sheep's clothing... SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES (John 5:39)

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves
...
For such are FALSE apostles,
DECEITFUL workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.”

(Matthew 7:15; 2nd Corinthians 11:13).

Well, they gave us the first September 11 massacre of innocent U.S. citizens by religious zealots in a self-created theocracy, resulting in the U.S. military being called in to subdue them. But it was in 1857.

Jesus has brought many individuals to Himself through the diverse religions across this planet. That does not mean that all of those various practitioners were sent by Him, or that their dogmas are God approved.

Many of my father’s family are Mormon’s. But, I rejected the religion because it taught that if we are baptized for our ancestors they will go to Heaven.

I alone am responsible for my choices in life, good and bad. We are all given the choice of accepting Christ in our lifetime in many different ways. The Gospel has been spread throughout this world over the centuries and, IMHO, all have been touched by Him somehow.

There are Mormons who are Christians and will see the Kingdom of Heaven. The are also Christians, in name only, who do not “take up their cross and follow” and will not see the gates of Heaven.

I ain’t perfect. I rely on His justice and mercy only.

Some may not agree. So be it.

There is a difference. Jesus (The Son) is part of the Godhead. But there is no difference as far as you and I are concerned. Jesus can forgive sins, lay down His life and pick it back up, perform miracles and access heaven and earth in our time. So, do you have a point? Most of what you have posted so far makes no sense to me.

Why would I place any faith at all in the Book Of Mormon?

Consider these words of warning:

Prov 30:6 Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

and this:

Rev 22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;

Mormons claim the Book of Mormon is God's further revelations - an update to the New Testament. But the New Testament seems to say that there are no further books of revelation. We have everything we need.

Maitreya is the Antichrist

Just saw a television add that proclaims that a star will shine in the heavens signaling the revelation that Maitreya is Christ.

Big problem here. He supposedly has been around for a while, yet Jesus (Yeshua)said that his coming will be like the lighting from the east to the west. He also said not to believe it if someone told you to go somewhere to seek him.

The followers of Maitreya do just this. He will probably be the revelation of the Mahdi that Muslims have been waiting for, but never could possibly be Christ.

Yes, Jim, the do refer to Mormon prophets and other modern day ‘prophets’, those who pervert the Bible to lead people away from Christ (even atheists).

Jim, many years ago, when I was a teenager, I didn’t know my Bible, I was only a nominal Christian, and I converted to Mormonism. I didn’t know any better and I was lied to by my Mormon friends and the Mormon missionaries about their teachings. Only after I was a member and really immersed and had a desire to really study and understand their theology (Mormons don’t have anything like systematic theology - they can’t) did I start to compare Mormonism to the Bible. I took quotes like this one very seriously:

“Take up the Bible, compare the religion of the Latter-day Saints with it and see if it will stand the test”
(Brigham Young, May 18, 1873, Journal of Discourses, vol. 16, p. 46.)

Young was dead wrong, not a single unique Mormon doctrine can be proven with the Bible and every one of them can be proven false just using the Bible.

When I really started to read the Bible I began to see that Mormonism is not only false, but spiritually dangerous.

I really appreciate the freedom for the truth that is allowed on the Religion forum. It was people like those here, who challenged me, who got me mad enough to prove them wrong on Mormonism, who got me to try to prove the Bible was fallible (Mormon doctrine) and yet could prove Mormon doctrine ‘true’, that led me out of Mormonism and to Christ and for that I am eternally grateful.

Well, to me, Jesus was just a man. The Only Begotten Son of God is The Christ. Jesus was pure enough that The Christ could live in him in the flesh. Jesus showed the way. This in no way belittles Jesus. The Christ is LOVE. The Christ created all things. The Christ lives in ALL things. Every second, every day, every year.

“I am the Light that is above them all, I am the All, the All came forth from Me and the All attained to Me. Split a piece of wood, I am there. Lift up the stone and you will find Me there.”

The TRUTH LIVES in YOU. It always has. It always will.

It isn’t that hard people. In fact, it is the easiest thing in the world.

Tearing at each other sucks. Stop it.

Yes we will find out one day, but that day will be too late. Contrary to Mormon doctrine, there are no missionaries in “paradise” waiting to teach us Mormonism. There are no second chances. We must all choose in this life to follow Christ or in your case, TP, follow Joseph Smith.

The christ (lower case intentional) of Mormonism is not the Christ of the Bible.

TP, I like you, please get out while you can. Life in Christ is so much better than Mormonism. I know, I’ve been there.

It’s not only the Book of the Dead, Smith claimed one of the ‘gods’ (Min) from the text was God. For those unfamiliar with Egyptian pantheon, Min is the Egyptian god with the erection.

Rather fitting considering LDS theology...

What Child is this is one not included in the LDS hymnal.

Yup, you got us. Since we do not have that specific Christmas song in our hymnal we must not be Christian. Congratulations, you have won the discussion.

Or, just maybe, that is a bogus argument. There are dozens and dozens of Christmas songs appropriate for Sunday worship service. And we only include 14 of them.

#201 - Joy to the World
#202 - Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful
#203 - Angels We Have Heard on High
#204 - Silent Night
#205 - Once in Royal David's City
#206 - Away in a Manger
#207 - It Came upon the Midnight Clear
#208 - O Little Town of Bethlehem
#209 - Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
#210 - With Wondering Awe
#211 - While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks
#212 - Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains
#213 - The First Noel
#214 - I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I think that is a decent representative selection. Nope, not all of the available ones. But certainly a good selection.

And it is not that we are leaving room for our Momon-unique hymns. Just before the Christmas hymns are our sacrament hymns. Note #184. The editors must have missed that one.

#172 - In Humility, Our Savior
#173 - While of These Emblems We Partake
#174 - While of These Emblems We Partake
#175 - O God, the Eternal Father
#176 - 'Tis Sweet to Sing the Matchless Love
#177 - 'Tis Sweet To Sing the Matchless Love
#178 - O Lord of Hosts
#179 - Again, Our Dear Redeeming Lord
#180 - Father in Heaven, We Do Believe

Several years back I played a piano solo of What Child is This in a December sacrament meeting. And I amazingly wasn't excommunicated.

I hope your Christmas is blessed.

the Church of the living God is the pillar and foundation of the truth.

why?

because the Church is the Body of Christ.

your having a “problem” with the theology/dogma of the Church doesn’t mean a hill of beans.

have a Merry Christ’s Mass!!

OK, I typo-ed the name of the song. Once in Royal David's City, not Once in David's Royal City.

If you have a beef with the doctrine in that hymn you will need to take it up with Mrs. Alexander.

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:18).

What does Islam have in common with Mormonism, concerning their founding?
