Why do you deter others from the simple LDS gospel?

 Simple Gospel?

.:THE LDS GOSPEL IS SO SIMPLE! WHY DO YOU DETER OTHERS FROM IT?

A MORMON WRITES:

“I have many issues with the statements you pose on your site.  …The gospel of Jesus Christ is very, very simple.  The Lord is not the author of confusion. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord’s Church.  I know this because I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of the Lord to the ancient inhabitants of the American Continent brought to light in our days as an additional witness to the divinity and reality of the Son of God as the Savior of the world. …After reading what Chuck had to say, I felt sad.  Come back to the Church, Chuck!  If you don’t want a calling that’s fine. You don’t have to do anything, but come and develop your relationship with the Savior and your family’s relationship as well. There is a great difference between those who believe in Christ and those who try to deter others from the light of the Gospel.  I urge you not to continue to be the latter.” Continue reading Why do you deter others from the simple LDS gospel?

Why do you attack the LDS church?

Who We Are

.:THE LDS CHURCH DOESN’T ATTACK YOUR CHURCH, SO WHY DO YOU ATTACK OURS?

I would like to ask why it is you challenge the correctness of the LDS Church? Doesn’t that mean you are condemning its validity? I know that my LDS Church outright says that it is the only correct religion. I can most definitely see how that can be taken as offensive, but it at least doesn’t single out any specific religion (even if some of its members do). I just think that a religion or religious group shouldn’t focus attacks or challenges on another, but rather, should explain why theirs is correct. I don’t think that a group should have to say that another is incorrect, but show how theirs is correct. I don’t have any problem with your ministry saying how it believes that it is correct, but I do feel slightly attacked when it condemns my Church as wrong. …I guess the point of my email is to ask you to tone down your attacks on other groups, yet DO promote the reasons why your ministry is correct without demeaning others.” Continue reading Why do you attack the LDS church?

Why do you hate Mormons? Didn’t Jesus Teach us to love our neighbors?

Who We Are

.:WHY DO YOU HATE MORMONS? Didn’t Jesus Teach Us to LOVE Our Neighbors?

A MORMON RESPONSE TO OUR WEBSITE:

“Out of curiosity, I am wondering, do you have nothing better to do with your time? Why do you hate the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and take your time to select random quotes from Joseph Smith to attack the Mormons.  Jesus Christ did not vehemently attack the Pharisees.  You seem to go against the very basic teachings of Christ by not LOVING your neighbor into your religion instead of trying to deceive them with selected quotes from Mormon literature. Now, I’m not saying you’re trying to be mean, but I am saying don’t be a hypocrite by attacking someone that Christ would love into His Gospel. Jesus Christ is about bringing people together, not tarring them apart over beliefs.

I believe that God is a God of mercy and second chances. He will provide a way for all of his children to return and live with him; if not in this life, the next. I also believe that God will judge us according to our consciences; that is to say that He will judge us according to the laws and ways we have been taught.  If we live the ways we believe to be correct, then that will be pleasing unto Him. I mean, how can he punish us for something we didn’t know was wrong? That just doesn’t seem just.

Now, as to people falling away from the LDS Church, every EX-member who is writing will have a problem with the standards of the Church and that is why they are Ex-members.  The standard was too high for them. Much is given; much is expected.  So, why don’t you leave the Mormons alone and find something better to do with your time?  May your hate for Mormons and Mormonism will be replaced with true tokens of worship and the fruits of the love of Jesus Christ.”  Continue reading Why do you hate Mormons?

Why is the Mormon Church the only religion being picked on?

Who We Are

.:WHY IS THE MORMON CHURCH THE ONLY RELIGION PICKED ON?

“Ever wonder why only the Mormon Church is picked on?  Why aren’t people and churches bashing Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Anglicans or even Pentecostals? How about Episcopalians or Catholics? No one bashes them. They only pick on Mormons.  Are all these churches right and only the Mormons wrong or bad?  Satan knows which church is real—the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So, he will have anybody and everybody gang up on it to try and destroy it.  He doesn’t waste his time on the others because they aren’t a threat.” Continue reading Why is the Mormon Church the only religion being picked on?
