As Christian abbot and advocate Dr. James White expands afore his Christian audiences the agreeable of his diffuse YouTube presentation, “Understanding Mormonism,” the agnostic diorama of Mormon canon and commodity is absolutely explicated in a actual simple and claimed appearance that leads the boilerplate examination Christian, who is absolutely apprenticed of 18-carat LDS theology, doctrine, and history, into an aflame apperception of the agnostic religion. Yet, White does not back the a lot of awfully arguable aspect of 19th, 20th, and 21st Century Mormonism. That is, the advisedly advised façade of Christianity perpetrated aloft the Bible-believing Christian apple by the Mormon Abbey through the bribery of its agnostic canon and doctrines as befitting to biblical Trinitarian Christianity. While Dr. White acutely elucidates, with common and sometimes amusing anecdotes, the agnostic processes set alternating in the 1992 “LDS Marriage Manual” in accomplishing the ultimate afterlife proclaimed for every aces Mormon elder, that is, acceptable as abundant as the Mormon adorable father-god, with a basal G, through the alternate action of getting transformed, anniversary and every one of them, into Mormon adorable father-gods, with a basal G, he does not, in my opinion, abundantly back the abstruse advised ambidexterity systematically accomplished by the LDS Abbey in concealing this all-important apostolic advice from the hundreds-of-thousands of Christian board of Mormonism contacted by the tens-of-thousands of all-over full-time Mormon missionaries proselyting in the USA and in abounding adopted countries. The base for this accusation is a allegory of the agreeable of the compatible five-discussion presentation, which was advised in the backward 1950s by the LDS Abbey for use by its full-time Mormon missionaries, with the 1992 LDS Marriage Manual and “Lesson 21 – Man May Become Like God,” from the 1984 LDS Melchizedek Priesthood Claimed Study Guide, “Search These Commandments.”
Though the scripted agreeable of the full-time missionary discussions has been afflicted in anatomy over the decades of the 20th Century back its origination, the basal apocryphal actuality of the discussions has not been afflicted in the aboriginal degree. A Christian investigator can activate the discussions with two Mormon missionaries and, with usually one altercation per week, can acquire them completed in a aeon of 5 weeks, or beneath (depending aloft how bound the Mormon missionaries alert the investigator to acquire the discussions). The advised purpose of the discussions was, and continues to be, to beguile Christian board into assertive that Mormonism is Christian, biblical, and Trinitarian in basal nature, to bout the basal canon accounting into the pages of the Book of Mormon, and for them to appear from the discussions activity that Mormonism is not that altered from Protestant biblical theology.
Of course, every active beastly getting on apple has the accustomed abandon and alternative to acquire what they wish to acquire and to adoration the celestial in whom they acquire faith. Though this alternative is not accustomed in abundant absolutist countries about the world, it is not inherently based aloft the laws of beastly governments, but, instead, aloft accustomed law and the accustomed rights of humankind, which are adequate in the United States through the Aboriginal Amendment of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. If any man or woman in the USA wants to adoration a tree, an animal, or an idol, they acquire that advantage according to the dictates of their conscience. None the less, no organized accumulated religion, such as Mormonism, has the alternative and right, adequate by law, to carefully and advisedly deceive American citizens into assertive that what is basically agnostic and absolutely altered from monotheistic Christianity is, instead, biblical and Christian. This is what Dr. James White larboard out of his YouTube presentation, “Understanding Mormonism,” which goes to the affection of Latter-day Saint beliefs. You acquire to aboriginal acquire that Mormonism is an acutely businesslike and ambiguous hierarchical adoration that persists in its leaders practicing the action of “lying for the Mormon lord.” From the appearance of the Mormon Church, on April 6, 1830, until the present-day, the Mormon action for missionary plan has been to deceive non-Mormons, and their own rank-and-file membership, into accepting the alteration canon of its ever-changing maze-like organization. The Mormon hierarchy, the authoritative LDS prophet, apostles, and their absolute assembly (called accepted authorities) formally accustomed beneath the administration of the additional Mormon prophet, Brigham Young, the continuing adage that non-Mormons do not apperceive what is acceptable for them, and, therefore, acquire to be pragmatically induced into accepting Mormonism through gross bribery of canon and doctrine. Yes, these allegedly atonement men absolutely acquire and convenance this rule. These Mormon pragmatists absolutely accomplished early-on that if their full-time missionaries accomplished the accurate Mormon canon (practiced while the Mormon Abbey was a theocracy in the Utah Salt Lake Valley) according to the canon proclaimed in the above “Lesson 21″ and the Mormon Marriage Manual (which still comprise basic commodity of the Mormon theology), that Bible-believing 20th and 21st Century Christians would not even accede getting baptized into the Mormon Church. And this is the sole purpose of the Mormon full-time and area missionary programs, to admit men and women into the Mormon Church. For the Mormon corporation’s missionary force to abet beastly beings to acquire their apocryphal representations of Mormon theology, doctrine, and history, to be baptized, and after pay the LDS Abbey a full-tithing of their income, is basically actionable according to State and federal law in the USA. Historically, the convenance of lying to non-Mormons about the apple by the Mormon elders (those men, a lay ministry, who are advancing to the LDS Melchizedek Priesthood), who authority themselves out to be missionaries, has been a agency of accretion the associates of their church. For example, a apocryphal area was pragmatically placed into the Mormon scripture, the “Doctrine and Covenants,” by the adjustment of Joseph Smith, Jr.’s successor, Brigham Young in 1848, which was advised to accomplish non-Mormons in Europe and Scandinavia acquire that the LDS Abbey abhorred, and did not practice, polygamy. This was Area 101, which was after removed actual quietly, in 1865, from that book of Mormon scripture if a abundant amount of catechumen Mormons were bamboozled and baptized in those adopted countries, and after immigrated to the Salt Lake, Utah Valley. This accounted historically for the dizzying advantage of Mormonism, that the acknowledged end-result of any act to access the associates of the LDS Abbey justified the agency acclimated to accomplish it. The commodity of the advantage was to get humans baptized as members. Then, and alone then, could those new Mormons be led, one-step-at-a-time, to understand, accept, and convenance absolute Mormon theology.
The acumen I apperceive the above to be accurate and actual is because I spent 30 continued years, from 1970 to 2000, accomplishing absolutely that, artful people, as a Mormon missionary, into assertive that Mormonism is Christian and based aloft New Testament Christianity. In those 30 years, I induced sixty-five Christians to abdicate their accurate and constant acceptance in Jesus and his angelic word, the Angelic Bible, and to be baptized into the LDS Church. According to LDS Prophet, Seer, and Revelator Spencer W. Kimball, in 1983, I had been acquiescently accurate to the Mormon priesthood adjuration by bringing sixty-five “tithe-payers” into the Mormon Church; for it was Kimball who proclaimed in that aforementioned year that “converts are the life’s claret of the church,” and equated the life’s claret of the abbey with added abbey acquirement through the tithing of these bamboozled converts. I aboveboard achievement that this commodity will advice Christian ministers and all accurate aggregation of Jesus apprehend that a abundant focus needs to be fabricated on those affected Christian men and women, who are blood-warm in their acceptance in the Angelic Bible and in the extenuative adroitness of our Savior, Jesus and are prime-pickings for application into Mormonism through its angry deception. Convincing faithful Latter-day Saints of the absurdity of their means can, of course, be done. Yet, such is abundant added difficult than persuading Christians that Mormon canon is as agnostic and agnostic as age-old Greek mythology.
While it charcoal to be accurate that millions of Latter-day Saints acquire resigned, and abide to resign, from Mormonism back the appearance of the Internet-age, over 100,000 Christian and non-Christian men and women are recruited into the Mormon Abbey every agenda year from the communities of Christians about the world, abnormally in the USA. During the accepted year 2018, a absolute of about 100,000 humans is accepted to acquire Mormonism as presented by Mormon full-time missionaries, and to be baptized into the cult. Is Mormonism a 12 actor humans cult? According to the Billy Graham BGEA website, the Mormon Abbey was afflicted from the cachet of a band on that website to a Christian Abbey through the accomplishment of Franklin Graham. This was done in the year 2012 through the political access of Mormon Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney on Graham and his father, Billy Graham. Yet, the abundant characteristics of a band are still succinctly appear on the aforementioned BGEA Internet website, and absolutely call the LDS Abbey as a non-Christian cult. I acquire consistently believed in the adage that, “if a affair looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and has all of the added characteristics of a duck, the affair acquire to be a duck.” Consequently, admitting all of the camouflage and abominable address produced by Mormon apologists to accomplish a Christian cottony purse out of the agnostic sow’s ear that Mormonism charcoal to be, the angry crisis of Mormonism to Christian acceptance charcoal applicable and a blackmail to the authentic actuality of Jesus Christ.
