Posted on 04/18/2013 9:47:30 AM PDT by greyfoxx39
Or if a Mormon died, what did they do to deserve it??
They probably weren’t tithe payers or associated with Gentiles.
were they wearing their garmies?
Leave it to the LDS cult to immedietly suggest in a tragedy that their religion kept them safe. More specifically, they probably think their sacred garments (underwear) was the charm that did it.
One of the little children who was murdered in Newtown was a Mormon..
(Next thing ya know the Mormon church-owned Deseret News will be using the above to "verify" the verse from the Book of Mormon, "You are saved by grace AFTER all YOU can DO.")
Lots of apostates were safe also...
outnumbered the Mormons 100 to 2...
How cool is that ???
(Note the self-Mormon presumption of "good"; even Jesus said we should have a self-"check" about touting that):
He said: "'Why do you call me good?' Jesus answered. 'No one is good--except God alone.'" (Mark 10:18).
Jesus wasn't saying He personally wasn't good; but He was addressing the misguided presumption behind the comment: That man is good [I believe Jesus is addressed mans isness at root ]
Jesus levels the playing field before the cross by undercutting any spiritual pride that presumes anybody from any religion doesnt need Him as our great physician ("It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick...For I have NOT COME to call the righteous, but sinners."--Matthew 9:12)
Jesus is for the person who understands their personal cancerous diagnosis of sin.
The apostle Paul added in Romans 3: 10 As it is written:
There is no one righteous, not even one;
11 there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.
20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in Gods sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in[h] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...
Running 26.2 miles in garmies usually leaves a rub rash that lasts for months!
Hey MORMANS 2 words for ya, “Mountain Meadows”.
Was does a text read like where the sender was under a "hardly worked" environment?
Does that mean only certain letters or numbers come thru? (And others are evaporated from the screen?)
Does that mean you can receive texts but not send them?
Isn't texting pretty much cut & dried -- where you can send them or you can't send them...with no "hardly" about it?
Thanks for posting the article. What a tragedy the bombing was and thank God for protecting the vast majority of people there. It’s a shame that politicians would use this tragedy to push their agendas. Thank God there are no Christians that would be so crass, unfeeling and hate filled as to exploit this tragedy to tear down others.
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: God, I thank you that I am not like other peoplerobbers, evildoers, adulterersor even like this tax collector.'
When did that happen?
No my friend I'm deeply aware of my own faults. I'm just thankful that Christians aren't exploiting a tragedy where people were scared, injured and died...including an 8 year old boy. Some people, like politicians, who have cold hearts and little love, would use this tragedy to push an agenda...wouldn't they?
When did what happen?
Well, your sarcasm is noted re: your indirect backdoor accusations.
So my next question is: When FREEPERs galore mention some Muslim terrorist attack (or the Boston Marathon where they speculate that Muslims were involved), where are you on those threads with this same "thankful" comment?
I mean those are tragedies, too, right?
Real victims, rights?
Would you -- in your own mild sarcastic way -- insinuate that all FR references to the Mormon Mountain Meadows as being "exploitive"?
If so, how would then Sept. 11, 1857 FR references rate on your "exploitation" scale...vs. FR references to Sept. 11, 2001?
You were being sarcastic right?
What, a member of the polytheist UCG sticking up for the polytheist LDS self-righteous behavior? Whoda saw this coming?
I'm not quite sure I'm following you here?? Accusing who of what? I think it's a given that politicians...well...usually only the soulless and heartless ones....will take human tragedy and then use them to paint their political opponents in the worst possible light.
I imagine these same politicians will sit around and gleefully high five each other over the corpses of the victims as they try to make their pathetic political points.
I was also expressing thanks for the Christian religion and Christians in general who would never do something like that. And if they did I would bet they would at least feel some type of repentance for what they've did and get down on their hands and knees to beg God for forgiveness.
Maybe we're posting on different threads???
No sir....that statement is from my heart. If a Christian did do something like that it would make a mockery out of Jesus Christ. It's really kind of disgusting. If they did I would hope they would at least feel some kind of sorrow and repent.
You’re a polytheist, as has been confirmed in multiple threads of yours. You believe in two different gods, and believe that mankind can join the Godhead. The LDS is also polytheist. They are here spreading propaganda that they were protected from harm because they were Mormons, which of course follows that those who were not Mormons go unprotected.
And here you are, attacking the people in this thread.
I was just expressing my lack of surprise on this.
So are you saying that the practitioners of mormnism are a mockery in this situation?
I'm not saying that at all. I really enjoyed the article. It showed a human side of the tragedy and a gratitude to God for sparing them. I thanked Grefoxx for posting it! Thanks for letting me clear that up!
That's the mormon church for you, exploit any and everything and everyone to fit their agenda. The fact that mormonism is non-Christian as are other polytheistic sects is notable.
As to "crass, unfeeling and hate-filled" see below:

Greyfoxx39 is a Mormon???
I have no problem with greyfoxx posting things thanking God for safety from a perspective of his/her's faith. I enjoyed reading it. Sorry. If you have a problem with it why don't you take it up with Greyfoxx?
And here you are, attacking the people in this thread.
Attacking who?? Politicians?? Look the honest truth is that politicians and the left wing media will stop at nothing to perpetuate their hatred against people who don't think the same way they do. They are so low, and we've seen this many times, that they will rummage around in the mud like pigs and sully and pull up anything and everything that they think will further their imagined "cause". And the worst part is that that hatred runs so deep and so wide that they can't see how perverted and corrupted their thought processes really are.
Surely you can't think I was attacking Christians?? Christians would never do such a thing.
Don't you agree??
Aren’t you a Mormon???
“I have no problem with greyfoxx posting things thanking God for safety from a perspective of his/her’s faith. “
Greyfoxx is NOT a Mormon. And though this is hard for someone like you who, as a matter of your religion as has been demonstrated, believes we are all in a counterfeit church because we believe in only one God, it is quite offensive for most normal people to hear claims like this.
Oh...my bad. I was confused as to why someone not a Mormon would be posting this wonderful article that shows gratitude and wonder toward God for keeping them safe. The bombing at the Boston Marathon was horrific. I have an almost 8 year old grandson. My heart would break if something like that would happen to him or any of my other loved ones.
If some hate filled politician took those expressions of gratitude and love for my relatives and exploited them as some kind of cheap stunt to "prove" a point I don't know I would react.
And if that politician and his left wing buddies took it as an occasion to mock and laugh at our having escaped from harms ways I would say that they weren't motivated by anything Godly. For all the world an image of devilish jackals is the only thing that comes to my mind.
Or a pack of ravenous dogs...or maybe a bunch of filthy swine?
Mat 7:6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
That's what those politicians remind me of....
I pray that anyone who is caught in these non-Christian entities will soon do the same.
Perhaps you are not aware of the mormon belief that their faith makes them "special" and therefore expression of the "gratitude and wonder" is just a testimony of their "attitude of superiority" over the "gentiles".
“If some hate filled politician took those expressions of gratitude and love for my relatives and exploited them as some kind of cheap stunt to “prove” a point I don’t know I would react.”
Apparently you approve of it, as that is what your cousins in the LDS are doing.
More likely had parents who were and merely tagged along.
When he (she?) gets old enough; THEN they could CHOOSE to be a MORMON.
Hey you ex-Kiwi!
I see that NZ just passed fag marriage legality laws!
Ain’t it just SO cute when the little darlings stand up in the T&FM times and recite what Mommy and Daddy has taught them!
Too bad HE didn't 'protect' the 100 or so in Massachusetts that day that would lose their lives due to the CHOICE of their 'mother'.
I think they are just deceived.

Hahahaha! I’ve SEEN that glove before! A Ex-Mormon preacher up in Utah, whose name I forget. He had a show, and it seems the LDS, with the help of some “Evangelicals,” managed to get him off the air earlier this year.
Yeah theyre slow out there...
Willard passed it in MASS 10 years ago...
The Mormon gods seem busy in MASS
I shudda switched from being a JW to be a MORMON!
