I love my Faith and it pains me to see such bigotry against Mormons.
I find it interesting that the critics of my Faith don’t want to dwell one topic to discuss the truth of falsehood, but choose to spam topics all over the place. I would be happy to debate and discuss things in a civil manner, but this crew on Freerepublic are not interested in that. I think in part they know if they acted civilized that they may look bad and their critiques will look hollow. I think they are afraid of any critical analysis.
Jim, why do you tolerate this in the News/Activism forum? Is this right? I can understand having this in the Religion forum but not here? Please reconsider.
And lastly, I pray to God that he will be the one to open the eyes of his Children to the truth. It is in his hands and I trust him completely. Although, I may have to suffer intolerance and harasment; I pray that I may be like Isaiah and that I may be like flint to their criticisms.
17 It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the otherThis is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!
18 My object in going to inquire of the Lord was to know which of all the sects was right, that I might know which to join. No sooner, therefore, did I get possession of myself, so as to be able to speak, than I asked the Personages who stood above me in the light, which of all the sects was right (for at this time it had never entered into my heart that all were wrong)and which I should join.
19 I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.
20 He again forbade me to join with any of them; and many other things did he say unto me, which I cannot write at this time. When I came to myself again, I found myself lying on my back, looking up into heaven. When the light had departed, I had no strength; but soon recovering in some degree, I went home. And as I leaned up to the fireplace, mother inquired what the matter was. I replied, Never mind, all is wellI am well enough off. I then said to my mother,I have learned for myself that Presbyterianism is not true.
I'm pretty adamant about wanting to know that UNTRUE thingy; wanna start there?
Pick any of the three topics, dwell on it please.
You make the challenge so lets see something different from the LDS this time.
Topics are not “spammed”, but dogma directly from LDS SOURCES over a number of areas are posted because the LDS themselves cannot answer them in an honest straight forward manner (for obvious reason, but that is another matter.)
The fact that LDS folks cannot answer their own contradictions is not “bigotry” it's just fact.
Of course victim hood is one of the leading products of LDS Inc....
Here is a chance to break the cycle.
Three topics, any one of which you can take on...
Oh, because I say so is not an answer to any question.
