Blind fools! Why don’t you all come home?

.:OUR RESPONSE TO A MORMON CONCERN: BLIND FOOLS! YOU HAD A TESTIMONY! WHY DON’T YOU ALL COME HOME?!”

“Blind faith, brain washing, catchy songs. You are all fools! Your ambivalent clichés on Mormonism are neither founded nor respected. Chuck, if you truly were at one time Mormon, why were you such a push over? Don’t you know part of the faith is to question the norm and challenge the truth? You tormented soul! Your angry and victimized tale is hardly proper indignation for a religion that didn’t bring you happiness.

I wonder how you managed to stay in as long as you did. Let me guess, the Christian faith has somehow brought happiness you could never find in being the “worker Bee” Mormon? Well, continue your fable life of blindness and enjoy your new faith.  Your slander and condemnation only strengthen the one and only true Church that has been brought forth in “these latter days!”

I cannot believe you would be so foolish as to imply that the Bible is the only true source of God over the Book of Mormon. How can you say, “A book! A book! I have a book and it contains the word of God!” on the one hand, but on the other, you denounce the latter-day miracles of its author? Where did you get that book in the first place? Was it not from the mouth of a Jew? Who are you that you would question the witnesses of God? Could there not be more than one book from God?

I testify to you, sir, that there is more than one, or the Bible would lack credibility and your “God’s word” would not be believed. Witnesses come in two’s and three’s. Surely you can remember that! I beckon you, Chuck, return your tired spirit home so that you may again find peace in the happiness of the true and only gospel! I wish you well, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!” Continue reading Blind fools! Why don’t you all come home?

I Bear You My Testimony – A Reply to a Mormon Testimony

.:I BEAR YOU MY TESTIMONY THAT THE LDS CHURCH IS NOT TRUE.OUR REPLY TO A MORMON TESTIMONY:

jesuschristA MORMON BEARS HIS TESTIMONY:

“I respect individuals who are determined in their beliefs and their love for Jesus and his gospel, because I find myself in that same path. So, I hope that you don’t regard me as part of a ‘counterfeit Christianity’ by being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know for an absolute surety that it is the only entity on this earth that has all of the saving ordinances necessary to inherit eternal life. To know Jesus is to serve him, to do as he did and to listen to his prophets.

I belong to THE Church of Jesus Christ. I have prayed earnestly to know the truth of the things I have so diligently searched, and God in his infinite wisdom and love shared His truth with me through the power of the Holy Ghost. Nothing can take this knowledge from me, for it is knowledge and not faith. I am past faith on this. Faith is hoping for things that you have not seen, but knowing is having a validation by the power of the Holy Ghost that what you have had faith in is true. It is validated!

Why don’t you get your own testimony?

.:OUR RESPONSE TO: “WHY DON’T YOU GET YOUR OWN TESTIMONY OF THE MORMON CHURCH?”

Chuck, you had a problem from the start when you said, ‘We just did it because everyone else was doing it.’ You need to have your own testimony! As a recent convert to the Mormon Church, I understand where you are coming from with how different the LDS Church is from other Churches, but that is because the Church is blessed with the priesthood and a holy Prophet of God. As a convert, I had the opportunity to take Moroni’s promise. I know that some kids who grow up in the Church overlook Moroni’s promise as they grow up and just do things because their families have a testimony of the gospel. Remember that when you take Moroni’s challenge, you must do it with an absolute sincerity in your heart. As I was fortunate enough to be able to know of the gospel, unlike billions who have been or are one the earth today, I started the unwavering foundation of my testimony. I know the Church is True and is led by Christ through our beloved Prophet. I know that Joseph Smith restored the True Church which stands today as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with sincere fervent prayer. I hope you can find these things to be true for yourself. The testimonies of others can only take you so far.” Continue reading Why don’t you get your own testimony?

After Mormonism, what?

 Freedom

confusedboy.:AFTER MORMONISM WHAT? What does an LDS person do when he or she breaks free from Mormonism?

You may be asking: “So What Do I Do Now?” You have finally broken free from the “herd” of Mormonism, but you feel hopelessly lost and without direction now…

HOW DID YOU GET HERE?

In the LDS Church, you were told what to think, where to go, what to do, and how to do it. You had your Church Handbook that was approved by the Presidency of the Church for your study and spiritual edification. You maintained faith with the Brethren and local leaders of the Church. You had been told to simply follow the Prophet and everything will be made sure.

You carried a membership card that got you into the temple. You passed your exams with the local Bishop, the Stake President, and anyone else who had been proclaimed to be an authority over you. You memorized all the songs since primary, memorized a few Scriptures from the Book of Mormon, dressed like everyone else in the Church, spoke like everyone else, served without reservations like everyone else. You were in fact, a living clone of everyone else in Mormonism. Continue reading After Mormonism, what?
