Often the truth is more unbelievable that fiction. I would say the presentation in the attached article is quite accurately supported by all the prior reading I’ve done. It’s just that nobody presents it this directly.
As with most faiths, it’s hard to tell how far those who follow them are properly trained in their doctrines. Certainly those who have progressed in the Temple of the Mormon religion are but for many it’s just about family, being a good person, and following a few rules.
If you are interested I have a good video of a meaningful discussion between a Mormon and a Christian, which more fully addresses the details of the new Mormon revelations documented by their founder and in the books without addressing all the extreme revelations.
As Christians we have mostly lost our heart for presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Instead we tend to tolerate other faiths and emphasize community of faiths at least to the extent that we see them as likewise good and faithful people of faith.
As Christian’s, we see Jesus and the Bible calling us to love our brothers and sisters, love our neighbors as ourselves, even love our enemy’s, and all these we should do. But I challenge you to find a place where it calls us not to preach the Gospel or to accept the error of false teaching and in particular all the new revelations that come from or are given to modern or even the long line of post biblical Prophets and Apostles.
But then again as it is written: “…What is truth?…” John 18:38
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
(Note: Matt Slick, can have an edge in his writings. As I note in my About
section, I cannot read all of a blogger’s writings and therefore I ask that you use discernment, which is what this is all about, i.e. “truth”, when you read any materials, even mine. Just because I find one of a writer’s articles useful in understanding something, I do not endorse all their writings.)
