“Some people think truth is more important than loyalty to a tradition.” ['Leaving Mormonism']
Mormon Coffee ^ | Feb. 11, 2013 | Sharon Lindbloom

About a year ago news headlines announced that vast numbers of Mormons were leaving the Mormon Church. While that is perhaps considered old news today, for Mormons who are struggling with their faith it is very relevant. This 9-minute video, “Leaving Mormonism,” looks at some of the struggles and triumphs of Mormons who asked themselves some hard questions and...found peace in the answers.

One sampling of "disbelieving" Mormons says one out of 11 of them have (thus far) joined a Christian denomination.

If you are such a disaffected/disassociating Mormon, why is it in your best interests to find a truly Christian new church home?

Well, what did Jesus say?

24 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.”(Luke 11:24-26)

We've all heard the phrase, "Nature abhors a vacuum." Here...Jesus is saying the same thing..."SuperNature also abhors a vacuum."

Luke 17:11-19 NIV

17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”

"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned;

and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given,

and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.

Brigham Young - JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)

The Transitions video (27 minutes) has more of the imagery seen in the 9 minute one.

Office of First President & Living Prophet®:

August 1st, 2011

The message for this month is -

...to IGNORE the FACT that the Christians on FR HATE us!
We've been taking a beating on the Internet - especially from those hateful ANTIs on FreeRepublic!
 
However, every time one of us call them ANTIs a HATER, they up and CHALLENGE us to show WHERE that is recorded!!  They are getting mighty damned uppity in my humble opinion.
 
Since we have YET to show ANY 'hate', 'hatred' or such, we end up looking like fools at best and LIARs at worst.
 
So, in light of these findings, you are 'encouraged' to refrain from using those words on FR any more.
 
Watch your e-mail box for more info from Headquarters on how to deal with FR.  SOMEthing has got to work!
 
Tommy
