If what Mormons really believe is found anywhere, it is found in the Book of
Mormon: 12 And whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me;
for good cometh of none save it be of me. I am the same that leadeth men to all
good;16 For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that
he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for
every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is
sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect
knowledge it is of God.
I believe that evangelicals, in general, are Christian, and I love them. Sadly, some people are admittedly trained to post anti-Mormon propaganda
on the DN and elsewhere, sometimes justifying hatred. There are also
anti-Mormon websites claiming they know what Mitt Romney and all Mormons
"really believe." Ive oft discussed the semi-quotes posted by DN
Evangelicals and anti-Mormon gay Atheists etc (tortures over creeds etc).Saying Mitt and Mormons believe something because someone LDS (including
O.Pratt, BY etc) said it is as unfair as saying present day Mormons all believe
Gentiles are unclean because their early Prophet, Peter believed it (before his
vision); that all Protestants "really believe" Catholicism is an
"abomination" and "blasphemy," "works" centered,
etc because Luther said it; that all Protestants hate Jews and LDS because some
raped and sought extermination, etc. Many opinions are given, and
LDS Presidents have clarified that the Abominable Church is not Catholics and
Protestants. The BofM definition is those torturing, attacking, etc the Saints.
It could be some Atheists, some gays, some Catholics, some Mormons.
Iowa's influential evangelical pastors are up for grabs, divided on which of the
Republican presidential candidates who call themselves born-again Christians
they should support. An essential of born again Christians, Whosoever
transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that
abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there
come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house,
neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his
evil deeds.(2John 9-11) John was talkinf about Gnostics, they did not
teach Jesus as God incarnate (John 1:1,14)God becomes man not man becomes God.
