Shut up? No. I would never suggest such a thing.
However, if the anti-Mormon threads on Free Republic are "taking a toll" on her, it would be healthier for her not to respond to them.
That said, restornu strikes me a someone who is deeply devoted to Jesus Christ. Such devotion is what makes one a true Christian.
A witness from the Holy Ghost is priceless. It is understandable that restornu would get upset when something so precious to her is demeaned or discounted. I would simply advise her to remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:6.
She is deeply devoted to the cult and teachings of Joseph Smith. That is quite a separate issue.
She even listed Joseph Smith first in her declaration to devotion. I think Elsie saw it.
Islam has a “jesus” and they call him isa or some such nonsense. It is not the Jesus of Biblical Christianity and you will actually find muslims who quite ardently defend this unScriptural “jesus”. Yes, they even go out and protest, thinking they’re defending the real Jesus. Though they are taught to deny everything about Him and in fact, abide by directly antichrist teachings and doctrine.
This is exactly why the Scripture tells us not to preach “another jesus” or “another gospel”. If I recall the Greek correctly, the word for “another” is basically “heteros”, which means “to mix with”. The Gospel of Christ mixed with anything else becomes a “heteros” teaching.
She strikes non-deceived people slightly different:
...she strikes me a someone who is deeply devoted to The CHURCH of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Such devotion is what makes one a true MORMON.
i’ve already mentioned on this thread how she strikes me.
