The “Magic Underwear” you mention is simply a reminder to the wearer of covenants made to God and Jesus Christ in the LDS temple.

As various religious ministers wear outward clothing to tell others they have a Godly calling, we as Lay Clergy and wear inward clothing to remind ourselves of our godly callings.

This is what they believe or do not believe:

Question: "What is Mormonism? What do Mormons believe?"

Answer: The Mormon religion (Mormonism), whose followers are known as Mormons and Latter Day Saints (LDS), was founded less than two hundred years ago by a man named Joseph Smith. He claimed to have received a personal visit from God the Father and Jesus Christ who told him that all churches and their creeds were an abomination. Joseph Smith then set out to begin a brand-new religion that claims to be the “only true church on earth.” The problem with Mormonism is that it contradicts, modifies, and expands on the Bible. Christians have no reason to believe that the Bible is not true and adequate. To truly believe in and trust God means to believe in His Word, and all Scripture is inspired by God, which means it comes from Him (2 Timothy 3:16).

Mormons believe that there are in fact four sources of divinely inspired words, not just one: 1) The Bible “as far as it is translated correctly.” Which verses are considered incorrectly translated is not always made clear. 2) The Book of Mormon, which was “translated” by Smith and published in 1830. Smith claimed it is the “most correct book” on earth and that a person can get closer to God by following its precepts “than by any other book.” 3) The Doctrine and Covenants, containing a collection of modern revelations regarding the “Church of Jesus Christ as it has been restored.” 4) The Pearl of the Great Price, which is considered by Mormons to “clarify” doctrines and teachings that were lost from the Bible and adds its own information about the earth's creation.

Mormons believe the following about God: He has not always been the Supreme Being of the universe, but attained that status through righteous living and persistent effort. They believe God the Father has a “body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s.” Though abandoned by modern Mormon leaders, Brigham Young taught that Adam actually was God and the father of Jesus Christ. In contrast, Christians know this about God: there is only one true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10; 44:6-8), He always has existed and always will exist (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalm 90:2; 1 Timothy 1:17), and He was not created but is the Creator (Genesis 1; Psalm 24:1; Isaiah 37:16). He is perfect, and no one else is equal to Him (Psalm 86:8; Isaiah 40:25). God the Father is not a man, nor was He ever (Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29; Hosea 11:9). He is Spirit (John 4:24), and Spirit is not made of flesh and bone (Luke 24:39).

Mormons believe that there are different levels or kingdoms in the afterlife: the celestial kingdom, the terrestrial kingdom, the telestial kingdom, and outer darkness. Where mankind will end up depends on what they believe and do in this life. In contrast, the Bible tells us that after death, we go to heaven or hell based on whether or not we had faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. To be absent from our bodies means, as believers, we are with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:6-8). Unbelievers are sent to hell or the place of the dead (Luke 16:22-23). When Jesus comes the second time, we will receive new bodies (1 Corinthians 15:50-54). There will be a new heaven and new earth for believers (Revelation 21:1), and unbelievers will be thrown into an everlasting lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15). There is no second chance for redemption after death (Hebrews 9:27).

Mormon leaders have taught that Jesus’ incarnation was the result of a physical relationship between God the Father and Mary. Mormons believe Jesus is a god, but that any human can also become a god. Mormonism teaches that salvation can be earned by a combination of faith and good works. Contrary to this, Christians historically have taught that no one can achieve the status of God—only He is holy (1 Samuel 2:2). We can only be made holy in God's sight through faith in Him (1 Corinthians 1:2). Jesus is the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16), is the only one ever to have lived a sinless, blameless life, and now has the highest place of honor in heaven (Hebrews 7:26). Jesus and God are one in essence, Jesus being the only One existing before physical birth (John 1:1-8; 8:56). Jesus gave Himself to us as a sacrifice, God raised Him from the dead, and one day everyone will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:6-11). Jesus tells us it is impossible to get to heaven by our own works and that only by faith in Him is it possible (Matthew 19:26). We all deserve eternal punishment for our sins, but God's infinite love and grace have allowed us a way out. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Clearly, there is only one way to receive salvation and that is to know God and His Son, Jesus (John 17:3). It is not done by works, but by faith (Romans 1:17; 3:28). We can receive this gift no matter who we are or what we have done (Romans 3:22). “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

Although Mormons are usually friendly, loving, and kind people, they are deceived by a false religion that distorts the nature of God, the Person of Jesus Christ, and the means of salvation.

“...Glenn said that the media would love nothing more than for people to equate Mormons with polygamists like Warren Jeffs, but nothing could be further than the truth. He said polygamy was a perversion of everything they believe in, and practitioners are excommunicated.”

He’s lying. Polygamy is still in their scripture, and they plan on being eternally polygamous with the mates they have sealed with in the temple.

“There’s nothing that you’ll find in the Temple that you won’t find in the Old or New Testament,” Glenn said

He’s lying. There’s none of it in the Old or the New Testament.

...”there was massive persecution and Mormons were driven out of New York, Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois. In Missouri, the governor even issued Executive Order-44 which ordered that all Mormons be exterminated or driven out of the state, resulting in 10,000 Mormons who lived there either being killed or forced to flee. Executive Order-44 wasn’t overturned until 1976. As a result of this persecution, there weren’t many men left. The desire to repopulate played a role in the decision to practice polygamy, but only about 5% did it before the practice came to an end in 1890.”

Total Mormon casualties in the conflict with Missouri: dozens, maybe. Perhaps as many as 50 or so. The Mormons declared war on Missouri first, and Missouri just responded. See Sidney Rigdon’s Salt sermon.

Total gentile casualties at Mountain Meadows: around 120. Mormons got scoreboard on the Mormon-gentile body count.

Unfortunately, for Romney to win the votes of Christians what will first happen, is that conservative writers, radio hosts, columnists, social conservative leaders, all of our talking heads, thinkers, and millions of rank and file conservatives and Christians will be drawn into the largest collection of, the most diverse collection of, the most creative collection of Mormon apologists, in history.

Mormonism will be daily rationalized, ways to smooth over Christian concerns will be thought of and delivered on the air waves, just as Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved already do. Limbaugh and others will fall into a daily routine of countering and defeating Christian protests against Mormonism. New creative thoughts and reasoning will come from National Review, and Fox

The right will be sucked into becoming the foot soldiers of mainstreaming and rationalizing Mormonism.

No comment, but I will say that anyone that leaves the Church founded by Christ himself 2,000 years ago to join one started by some con-man named Joe Smith ain’t playing with full deck. Glenn Beck lost whatever marbles he had years ago. Someone needs to remind Beck that the word of God is in the Bible, not the book of morman.

Thanks for your response.

Please give me a response to the following:

"I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable being; but he is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity" (Moroni 8:18).

"For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and in him there is no variableness, neither shadow of changing? And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles" (Mormon 9:9-10)

"Here, then, is eternal life--to know the only wise and true God. And you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves--to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done--by going from a small degree to another, from grace to grace, from exaltation to exaltation, until you are able to sit in glory as do those who sit enthroned in everlasting power." - King Follett Discourse

Moroni and Mormon describe God as immutable and unchanging. The KFD shows something else. How can you believe that God is at the same time immutable and changing, that from all eternity he was as he now is, but he somehow evolved from a mere mortal?

If God evolved, Moroni and Mormon are wrong. If God didn’t evolve, the KFD and Joseph Smith are wrong. Which is wrong? Or am I missing something?

“The “Magic Underwear” you mention is simply a reminder to the wearer of covenants made to God and Jesus Christ in the LDS temple.”

Why do the magic underoos have Masonic symbols on them? Where in the Bible is anyone commanded to wear magic underoos with Masonic Symbols?

Full Disclosure: Different God. Different Christ. Christians believe in an eternal God. Not a created spirit that is not eternal.

Is it really appropriate for Beck to be talking about the underwear his WIFE wears?

When I used to listen to him, he would go into a defensive, emotional rant if someone called in with a less-than-flattering opinion of Mormonism. Now here he is teaching Mormon 101. What’s going to be his reaction if everyone doesn’t eat it up?

Glenn Beck sounds like he knows next to nothing about the origins of Mormonism. His claim that polygamy (plural marriage) had something to do with repopulating the Mormon flock after it ha been decimated by Christian oppressors ignores the fact that Joseph Smith, the guy who made up the whole religion was engaging in plural marriage long before there was any Mormon religion or Mormon community for anyone to oppress.

The truth is that Joseph Smith was a sexual predator both before and after he dreamed up the whole Mormon religion. In fact, he created the Mormon religion because Christianity and American Christians in particular would not tolerate his deviant sexual behavior. Rather than conform his conduct to Christian standards, he chose to make up the Mormon religion so that his wife and others could not condemn him for his sexual perversions. He then promoted to positions of leadership other church members, including Brigham Young (known by his peers as Bringem Young) who shared Smith's tastes for perversion. Young wound up with some 55 wives.

Glenn Beck should read more about the origins of the religion he claims to have adopted. So should his wife.

Whatever else is said about it, I know it is an American religion.

Does it have problems and quirks? Oh yeah.

Does it need a "reformation" like the Christian church needed in the days of Martin Luther or like Islam needs today in order to be a religion of peace and not a theocratic-political-cultural system of conquering and domination? Nope.

Just my opinion.

Any cult started in America is “an American religion”, there must thousands of them, Scientology for instance, it is not related to Christianity at all, for one thing it has countless Gods, even Mitt Romney himself believes that he will become a God and rule over a planet of worshipers, just like our God is to us.

Good job in explaining how Mormonism is nothing more than a cult.

Like all other false religions, Mormonism will bring its followers straight to hell with Joseph Smith, Mohammed, Buddha, Moon (left for hell just the other day), and any other anti-Christ that decides to create a false religion born straight out of hell.

For the first time in my life we have to cultists running for the office of president. I thank God that I am hiring a business executive instead of a pastor.

That being said, Romney may or may not be a good president, only time will tell. Regardless of how bad he may be, I know how bad Obama is, and as Clint so eloquently put it,
“We own this country, and the Politicians are employees of ours. When somebody does not do the job, you've got to let them go.”

"Obama? Your Time Is UP!"

Agreed, whatever one thinks of Mormons or Mormonism, the adherents are American and love America. Period.

Our choices are Obama or Romney, regardless of what the third party candidate voters would like to admit.

So essentially, if you love this country there is only one choice for president, Romney.

I tend to think of Romney as life support. This country could very well suffer a fatality if Obama is reelected, but with Romney, we can sustain it so that we may yet save it.

I have a lot of experience with Mormons.

They are decent...
They are kind...
They are helpful...

To other Mormons.

Their charity is strictly for those who are in good standing with their ward.

Their friendliness/kindness is gushing and genuine as long as they think they can convert you to join their cult.

Ditto, their helpfulness.

But, again and again and again, the other choice for president is a well known danger to this country, a nightmare of epic proportions.

I will take the Mormon over the Moron.

Ansel12: "Any cult started in America is 'an American religion', there must be thousands of them, Scientology for instance...." and etc.

I agree with you fully, and I am well aware of the problems (okay, heresies) of the Mormon religion. I think I -- like many Christians -- consider it more of a cult than a religion, at least from a "gut instinct" sort of way. Sociologically, it has received the independent status, recognition, numbers, and mainstream acceptance to make it a religion.

Scientology is an excellent example for compare and contrast, as is Rev Moon's Unification Church, Secular Humanism, "the Way" and others that I know all about, and some that I merely have heard of. It could be interesting to read (or write) a book on how they vary in gnosticism, self-worship, asceticism, righteousness, and variance from belief in Christ, and a dozen other characteristics.

For instance, Apostolic Christians disdain (or at least pity and pray for) Evangelical Christians who are trinitarians! They consider worship of the 3-in-1 Godhead to be a form of idolatry. Go figure, I have believed since reading certain books in my teenage years, that God in three persons is a mystical thing to which the laws of nature / physics bear witness!

However, like Mark Twain once said, "it is not the parts of the Bible that I DON'T [fully] understand that concern me the most, but the parts that I DO [fully] understand!"

So my daily walk is my focus, as it should be. The faith and practice of the Mormon church is low on my list of concerns. The testimony of their behavior indicates to me a moral power, hopefully from God. I am not in the business of proving otherwise. I am sure that there are websites though (similar to "Operation Clambake" which exposes Scientology, but instead focused on the Mormon Church) which DO take issue with the LDS faith and practice.

I am pretty sure Jesus was quoted in one circumstance saying "He who is not for us is against us" and in another circumstance "He who is not against us is for us". Perhaps what he meant and in what circumstance he said one rather than the other is an important point in a discussion like this. I'll take the "look up".

I once (quite recently!) sent 2 Jehovah's Witnesses away from my door after asking them some questions about Islam's beliefs, practices, and demographics. I told them that if they don't find -- and band together with -- allies in the fight against Islam, then they are fighting the wrong fight. That is pretty much how I feel about Christians and Mormons these days.

JMHO.

Of course, Islam is like all religions, it doesn’t accept Jesus as God, nor does Judaism, other religions, don’t recognize him at all, or whatever.

Mormonism is formed, constructed, and executed, to destroy Jesus, to deconstruct him and then to rebuild him, to seduce his believers into a NEAR belief in Jesus, an almost Jesus, that melds into you becoming a Jesus yourself.

No comment, but I will say that anyone that leaves the Church founded by Christ himself 2,000 years ago to join one started by some con-man named Joe Smith ain’t playing with full deck. Glenn Beck lost whatever marbles he had years ago. Someone needs to remind Beck that the word of God is in the Bible, not the book of morman.


Right, nor the Catholic, nor a thousand others.

The truth is that Joseph Smith was a sexual predator both before and after he dreamed up the whole Mormon religion. In fact, he created the Mormon religion because Christianity and American Christians in particular would not tolerate his deviant sexual behavior. Rather than conform his conduct to Christian standards, he chose to make up the Mormon religion so that his wife and others could not condemn him for his sexual perversions.


If that were the truth why would he go to all of the trouble to forbid men to have more than one wife, the book of Mormon forbids men to have more than one wife.

There is certainly a danger that more people will gravitate to Mormonism with a Mormon as president.


If that happens then the Mormons will have the power to enforce the laws of the book of Mormon, which means of course that men can not have multiple wives As the BOOK OF MORMON FORBIDS IT.

I will vote for Obama.
