As Christian minister and evangelist Dr. James White expands earlier than his Christian audiences the content material of his prolonged YouTube presentation, “Understanding Mormonism,” the pagan diorama of Mormon theology and doctrine is totally explicated in a quite simple and private vogue that leads the common viewing Christian, who is completely blind to real LDS theology, doctrine, and historical past, into an illuminated comprehension of the heretical faith. But, White doesn’t convey probably the most disturbingly controversial facet of 19th, 20th, and 21st Century Mormonism. That’s, the intentionally designed façade of Christianity perpetrated upon the Bible-believing Christian world by the Mormon Church via the misrepresentation of its polytheistic theology and doctrines as conforming to biblical Trinitarian Christianity. Whereas Dr. White clearly elucidates, with frequent and typically humorous anecdotes, the pagan processes set forth within the 1992 “LDS Marriage Manual” in reaching the final word future proclaimed for each worthy Mormon elder, that’s, changing into as nice because the Mormon heavenly father-god, with a capital G, via the cyclical strategy of being remodeled, every certainly one of them, into Mormon heavenly father-gods, with a capital G, he doesn’t, in my view, sufficiently convey the profound deliberate deceit systematically practiced by the LDS Church in concealing this all-important theological info from the hundreds-of-thousands of Christian investigators of Mormonism contacted by the tens-of-thousands of ubiquitous full-time Mormon missionaries proselyting within the USA and in lots of overseas nations. The idea for this allegation is a comparability of the content material of the uniform five-discussion presentation, which was designed within the late 1950s by the LDS Church to be used by its full-time Mormon missionaries, with the 1992 LDS Marriage Handbook and “Lesson 21 – Man May Become Like God,” from the 1984 LDS Melchizedek Priesthood Private Research Information, “Search These Commandments.”Although the scripted content material of the full-time missionary discussions has been modified in type over the a long time of the 20th Century since its origination, the essential misrepresentative substance of the discussions has not been modified in the least. A Christian investigator can start the discussions with two Mormon missionaries and, with often one dialogue per week, can have them accomplished in a interval of 5 weeks, or much less (relying upon how shortly the Mormon missionaries immediate the investigator to have the discussions). The designed objective of the discussions was, and continues to be, to delude Christian investigators into believing that Mormonism is Christian, biblical, and Trinitarian in primary nature, to match the essential theology written into the pages of the Ebook of Mormon, and for them to emerge from the discussions feeling that Mormonism will not be that completely different from Protestant biblical theology.After all, each residing human being on earth has the pure freedom and liberty to consider what they need to consider and to worship the deity in whom they’ve religion. Although this liberty will not be allowed in quite a few tyrannical nations around the globe, it isn’t inherently primarily based upon the legal guidelines of human governments, however, as a substitute, upon pure legislation and the pure rights of humankind, that are protected in the US via the First Modification of the Invoice of Rights of the U.S. Structure. If any man or girl within the USA needs to worship a tree, an animal, or an idol, they’ve that privilege in accordance with the dictates of their conscience. None the much less, no organized company faith, similar to Mormonism, has the freedom and proper, protected by legislation, to deliberately and intentionally deceive Americans into believing that what’s mainly polytheistic and completely completely different from monotheistic Christianity is, as a substitute, biblical and Christian. That is what Dr. James White overlooked of his YouTube presentation, “Understanding Mormonism,” which works to the guts of Latter-day Saint beliefs. You should first perceive that Mormonism is a particularly pragmatic and misleading hierarchical faith that persists in its leaders working towards the method of “lying for the Mormon lord.” From the arrival of the Mormon Church, on April 6, 1830, till the present-day, the Mormon technique for missionary work has been to deceive non-Mormons, and their very own rank-and-file membership, into accepting the altering theology of its ever-changing maze-like group. The Mormon hierarchy, the presiding LDS prophet, apostles, and their direct representatives (referred to as common authorities) formally established below the reign of the second Mormon prophet, Brigham Younger, the standing rule that non-Mormons have no idea what is sweet for them, and, due to this fact, should be pragmatically induced into accepting Mormonism via gross misrepresentation of theology and doctrine. Sure, these supposedly honorable males actually consider and observe this rule. These Mormon pragmatists totally realized early-on that if their full-time missionaries taught the true Mormon theology (practiced whereas the Mormon Church was a theocracy within the Utah Salt Lake Valley) in accordance with the theology proclaimed within the foregoing “Lesson 21” and the Mormon Marriage Handbook (which nonetheless comprise very important teachings of the Mormon theology), that Bible-believing 20th and 21st Century Christians wouldn’t even take into account being baptized into the Mormon Church. And that is the only objective of the Mormon full-time and ward missionary applications, to baptize women and men into the Mormon Church. For the Mormon company’s missionary power to induce human beings to just accept their false representations of Mormon theology, doctrine, and historical past, to be baptized, and subsequently pay the LDS Church a full-tithing of their earnings, is mainly unlawful in accordance with State and federal legislation within the USA. Traditionally, the observe of mendacity to non-Mormons around the globe by the Mormon elders (these males, a lay ministry, who’re ordained to the LDS Melchizedek Priesthood), who maintain themselves out to be missionaries, has been a method of accelerating the membership of their church. For instance, a false part was pragmatically positioned into the Mormon scripture, the “Doctrine and Covenants,” by the order of Joseph Smith, Jr.’s successor, Brigham Younger in 1848, which was meant to make non-Mormons in Europe and Scandinavia consider that the LDS Church abhorred, and didn’t observe, polygamy. This was Part 101, which was later eliminated very quietly, in 1865, from that guide of Mormon scripture when a considerable variety of convert Mormons have been deceived and baptized in these overseas nations, and later immigrated to the Salt Lake, Utah Valley. This accounted traditionally for the unbridled pragmatism of Mormonism, that the profitable end-result of any act to extend the membership of the LDS Church justified the means used to realize it. The thing of the pragmatism was to get folks baptized as members. Then, and solely then, may these new Mormons be led, one-step-at-a-time, to know, settle for, and observe actual Mormon theology.The explanation I do know the foregoing to be true and proper is as a result of I spent 30 lengthy years, from 1970 to 2000, doing precisely that, deceiving folks, as a Mormon missionary, into believing that Mormonism is Christian and primarily based upon New Testomony Christianity. In these 30 years, I induced sixty-five Christians to forsake their true and abiding religion in Jesus and his holy phrase, the Holy Bible, and to be baptized into the LDS Church. In response to LDS Prophet, Seer, and Revelator Spencer W. Kimball, in 1983, I had been zealously true to the Mormon priesthood oath by bringing sixty-five “tithe-payers” into the Mormon Church; for it was Kimball who proclaimed in that very same 12 months that “converts are the life’s blood of the church,” and equated the life’s blood of the church with elevated church income via the tithing of those deceived converts. I sincerely hope that this text will assist Christian ministers and all true disciples of Jesus notice that a terrific focus must be made on these vulnerable Christian women and men, who’re lukewarm of their religion within the Holy Bible and within the saving grace of our Savior, Jesus and are prime-pickings for recruitment into Mormonism via its evil deception. Convincing true-blue Latter-day Saints of the error of their methods can, after all, be completed. But, such is far more tough than persuading Christians that Mormon theology is as polytheistic and unchristian as historic Greek mythology.Whereas it stays to be true that thousands and thousands of Latter-day Saints have resigned, and proceed to resign, from Mormonism because the introduction of the Web-age, over 100,000 Christian and non-Christian women and men are recruited into the Mormon Church each calendar 12 months from the communities of Christians around the globe, particularly within the USA. In the course of the present 12 months 2018, a complete of roughly 100,000 folks is predicted to just accept Mormonism as introduced by Mormon full-time missionaries, and to be baptized into the cult. Is Mormonism a 12 million folks cult? In response to the Billy Graham BGEA web site, the Mormon Church was modified from the standing of a cult on that web site to a Christian Church via the hassle of Franklin Graham. This was completed within the 12 months 2012 via the political affect of Mormon Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney on Graham and his father, Billy Graham. But, the enumerated traits of a cult are nonetheless succinctly revealed on the identical BGEA Web web site, and totally describe the LDS Church as a non-Christian cult. I’ve at all times believed within the aphorism that, “if a thing looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and has all of the other characteristics of a duck, the thing must be a duck.” Consequently, regardless of all the disguising and disgusting rhetoric produced by Mormon apologists to make a Christian silk purse out of the pagan sow’s ear that Mormonism stays to be, the evil hazard of Mormonism to Christian religion stays viable and a menace to the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.
