Posted on 02/16/2013 3:33:50 PM PST by Colofornian
...Should be a good turnout 300+ confirmed on Facebook, with many more reaching out to me pledging anonymous participation.
I have confirmed postings already in Australia, Germany, and Africa....
Also, I'm working to see if the story just got published by a new outlet because as of an hour ago, I've been getting about 4-5 new unique visits per minute.
Every person counts! Please support the effort and join us tonight!
MSM...you have a role in this: When the Mormon "goons" keep Mormons from placing these theses on the Mormon doors, you need to be there with your cameras rolling and shooting!
ALL: The rest of you interested in freedom from mormon bondage may want to also take a look after 9:00 p.m. Saturday night...and just before the dawn breaks Sunday a.m.
Drive by your local Mormon church...take a look and see how many "goons" the Lds authorities have placed out front to "defend" their doors from the "onslaught" of a piece of paper!!!!! (And bring your cameras!!!)
Of course, a "reformation" doesn't begin to go far enough with the Mormon church...But it's better than the Lds grassroots sitting on their hands...
Just as Berlin Wall came down after the spell of the Iron Curtain was eroded, the Internet has eroded the Spiritual Iron Curtain within Utah! The spiritual "Berlin Wall" maintained by the "guards" within Salt Lake City must fall!!! The Mormon church needs its glasnost and perestroika movement... openness...transparency...release of controls...freedom...from covering up its past...from legalism...
Mormons, if not for your children & grandchildren, then for whom???
Will you not be part of this?
When your kids & grandkids read of this "hour" in Mormon history, what part will you tell them you played? Part of the cover-up? Or a reformation???
Luther's coverage of purgatory is a kind of similar "suspended state" to Mormonism's view of the deceased awaiting a proxy baptism in Mormon temples.
I'd say over half of the first 37 theses could cover baptism of the dead alone (along with two more...#s 82 & #88)...as there are a LOT of parallels re: the dead & dying...indulgences vs. proxy baptisms, etc.
They also need to address the temple recommend power of local Lds bishops...just as Luther addressed the power of the Pope...in thesis #5...and address Lds general authorities...just as Luther addressed the Pope...in thesis #20.
This should be fun.
Pancake, rabbit, head...
Sister, moose, cheese...

DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS
OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
Revelation given to Joseph Smith the Prophet and Sidney Rigdon, at Hiram, Ohio, December 1, 1831. HC 1: 238239. The Prophet had continued to translate the Bible with Sidney Rigdon as his scribe until this revelation was received, at which time it was temporarily laid aside so as to enable them to fulfill the instruction given herein. The brethren were to go forth to preach in order to allay the unfriendly feelings that had developed against the Church as a result of the publication of some newspaper articles by Ezra Booth, who had apostatized.
14, Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon are sent forth to proclaim the gospel; 511, Enemies of the saints shall be confounded.
1 Behold, thus saith the Lord unto you my servants Joseph Smith, Jun., and Sidney Rigdon, that the time has verily come that it is necessary and expedient in me that you should open your mouths in proclaiming my gospel, the things of the kingdom, expounding the mysteries thereof out of the scriptures, according to that portion of Spirit and power which shall be given unto you, even as I will.
2 Verily I say unto you, proclaim unto the world in the regions round about, and in the church also, for the space of a season, even until it shall be made known unto you.
3 Verily this is a mission for a season, which I give unto you.
4 Wherefore, labor ye in my vineyard. Call upon the inhabitants of the earth, and bear record, and prepare the way for the commandments and revelations which are to come.
5 Now, behold this is wisdom; whoso readeth, let him understand and receive also;
6 For unto him that receiveth it shall be given more abundantly, even power.
7 Wherefore, confound your enemies; call upon them to meet you both in public and in private; and inasmuch as ye are faithful their shame shall be made manifest.
8 Wherefore, let them bring forth their strong reasons against the Lord.
9 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto youthere is no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper;
10 And if any man lift his voice against you he shall be confounded in mine own due time.
11 Wherefore, keep my commandments; they are true and faithful. Even so. Amen.

I have often visited ex-mormon.org, and have much sympathy for those who post there, some, obviously, more than others. However, to use the term “reformation” presupposes that there is something of value in Mormonism to be reformed. Mormon people are precious souls, as are all human beings. But the doctrines and practices of Mormonism contain nothing that is worth saving or reforming. What little they have right, usually in the realm of morals, is well and truly covered by Christianity. So, Mormon Reformation is a phrase that has no compelling appeal whatever. Mormonism is a pseudo-Christian cult.
Similar to what the old Rlds has been doing?
They tossed out a LOT of JS stuff long ago...
They claim, however, that JS never DID engage in polygamy - something that HISTORY seems to have documented quite well.
A new prophet with the balls to “mainstream” mormonism could be a truly scary dude. I think any prophet that would shake things up in the LDS church would bring back polygamy. That is one thing that they all hope for and would be well inline with the nature of their church. After he did that he would have free reign to change anything he wanted to because the body of Mormonism would be so juiced up about polygamy.
Still serving up the Poop-Soup over there in Colofornia Huh.
I was there!
I saw your post, so I jumped in my car and drove down to the Mormon Church building which is several miles from my computer.
I was totally expecting news crews, swat teams, Mormons in defiance behind barricades. Maybe some burning crosses. I was going to mark the day man!!
I was there the day the Christians stormed the walls and vanquished all the Mormons and raised the flag over the great Mormon castle.
Of course if there were any Mormon survivors I was expecting them to trotted out in chains summarily turned over the local Baptist minister. Where he would pass sentence on them.
I’ve never seen anyone drawn and quartered before.
You can imagine my chagrin when I pulled into the parking lot and found myself completely and totally alone.
I can see why!
It's the MORMONs storming the walls: not CHRISTIANS!
MORMONs - willing to face down the Spirit of Apostacy - trying to tell the Living Prophet© what to do; instead of the other way around.
And captured on the parking lot security cameras.
I am a Christian. I don’t follow the Monomon cult.
