Glenn Beck peddles David Barton’s rewrite of the NASB to share a Holy America and make some quick bucks

Ed Decker

Glenn BeckAfter hearing Glenn Beck promoting a special kind of bible, I skimmed through the numerous websites promoting the Founders’ Bible and the ministry of David Barton, Glenn Beck’s token Christian Pastor.  The Bible is more a declaration of the holiness of the United Sates of America than a true study bible.

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Personal Priesthood Responsibility”, November 2003, pg 44; “To bear the priesthood means you have a personal responsibility to magnify your calling. Let each opportunity to serve help to develop your power in the priesthood. In your personal grooming, follow the example of the living prophets. Doing so gives silent expression that you truly comprehend the importance of “the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God.” –

mailbagHere are the latest e-mails from Mormons who write to us!  We’re posting these so you can come alongside us and pray for them as well.  They’ve all come in via the site and blog.

Above all else please know we’re not here to bash the Mormon people or to ridicule them. Our hearts are broken that they believe the lies of the evil one and pray daily they come to know the real Jesus!

Thanks for praying!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

What? Are you kidding me?  That was my first reaction when I read the headlines screaming across the page I read in the Salt Lake Trib

As we write articles and share the gospel online and elsewhere this is one of the reasons we do what we do at LAM.

The body of Christ needs to wake up and pay attention.  I’m not sure who it was that cast the final vote for the status of “National Bible City”, but we’re on our knees they’ll rescind their generous gift.

October 31 – Ephesians 4:11-14; “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.”

October 30 – 2 Timothy 4:2-4; “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

True Mormonism

 

 

Something to ponder before the next Mormon missionary shows up on your doorstep:

 Mormonism is Leaven to Christian Churches of Today

Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, pg. 16; “Mormonism has acted as a leaven upon other religious faiths. Consciously or unconsciously they have absorbed and utilized it. This is especially manifest in the growth of liberal ideas among the Protestant churches within the last half century. (2 January 1902, MS, 64:22.)”

Let’s remember the warning to us put forth by Jude not to deny our Lord and caving into society’s problems whatever they might be.

Jude 1:4; “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Lorenzo Snow was the fifth Mormon president of the LDS Church.

Thought of the Day about the Graham Family, Romney and Integrity

We’ve written about the election so many times now that I’ve lost count. I never would’ve dreamt that I’d be this involved and at this stage I can’t wait until November 7th to come rolling around so it’ll be over with.

Melissa wrote a piece about a week ago (http://lifeafterministry.com/2012/10/12/god-is-still-in-control/) that should sum up the views of Christians worldwide, alas, some of us seem to panic at the last minute and ditch our moral convictions to pick what Ed Decker called, the lesser of two evils.

Exit story of Tanya W.

I wasn’t born into the Mormon Church; I was actually born and dedicated into a loving Christian church and family.  When I was 5 and my brother was 8 my Mother left my Dad for another man who was Mormon.  Because it wasn’t common practice in the 70′s for Dad’s to fight for custody we lived with our Mother.  I was baptized into the church when I was 8 and so was my Brother.  We thought that we were happier because of the church.  On the outside we were a very strong Mormon family.

Introduction

Before we get into the actual “study” part of this Mentoring Handbook, I feel there is one critical point to understand about the ex-Mormon before you begin.

When I left Mormonism after thirty years, it didn’t take me long to realize that every single thing I knew in life was a lie.

Everything from food and clothing to the English language has to be re-evaluated by the person leaving the Church.  Because they have lived in a state of fear of losing salvation and sometimes jobs, families and homes which can produce paranoia, sometimes there is a great amount of confusion in their minds.  Threats, whether real or implied, have been the main meal of doctrine they’ve been fed.  In this religion the meaning of words and information from the “outside” has been twisted by leaders of the Church in order to control the members.  Being taught you will lose salvation by not belonging to their church is a threat and a scary process to have to endure.

The length of time and level of activity spent in the Church typically determines how long it’ll take to work through the exodus of Mormonism.
