A true Prophet of God leads with love. The Lord did not give the Isrealites the
thousand commandments, he gave them 10. When Jesus Christ was upon the earth, he
was asked what is the greatest commandment? Just 2,Love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart might, MIND, and strength, the second is like unto it, Love they
neighbor as thyself. God wants us to think for ourselves. Live our own lives
according to the dictates of our own consience.I believe Warren
Jeffs is a prophet, the God he worships is not the God of Heaven. The evil
edicts he keeps pronouncing upon his followers are just like Satan is toying
with them to see what kinds of depraved things he can get them to do next. These
people need to use their God given minds and consiences.
The man is forced to lead an unhappy, celibate life, therefore he must make sure
that all of his followers are as unhappy as he is, even the children.
I have met several of these good, honest, hardworking men and can't imagine
how in the world they would possibly agree to follow such a demented nut who
comes up with such a idea as this. Time to elect a new leader.
While the rest of America struggles with Gay marriage -- Leave it to
someone here to take things one step even further, but in the opposite extreme.
Fundamentalist is just another term for polygamist. Not all fundamentalists
follow Jeffs there are even some that practice it on their own just like in
"Big Love" and "Sister Wives" They have no prophets they bow
Ms. Molli,I recall the Church of the First Born, also the Short
Creek settlement had some notoriety for a time. Since the 1890 Manifesto
there's been a dozen or so splinter groups practicing polygamy led by their
own prophets. The FLDS is the main one that makes headlines these days because
of Warren Jeffs.
To Ms MolliIn answer to your question: I met the Sister Wives guy last
week (ran into him at the LDS visitor ctr in Independence just by
coincidence.)He is NOT a part of Warren Jeffs group and in fact hopes to portray
on the show that they are not the kind of people who are in Jeff's
organization. I get the impression that "fundamentalist Mormon" is more
a type of religion than a specific organization.
I hope we hear about the koolaid order before its too late ... I'm sure it
will be coming eventually.
15 child abusers. Arrest them and send them to join their leader.
Warren Jeffs is simply trying to manipulate his followers from prison to see how
many of them will 'stay true' to him as he pulls their strings into
tangled threads. To him it is a power thing, I believe. The more bizarre his
edicts get, the more his 'true' followers are culled from the
'unbelievers.' That leaves only the most loyal (crazy)followers left.
First he tests them by taking away the children's toys and banning sex. Now
he 'rewards' his 15 most faithful men with sexual favors with any
women that are left. When will these people say enough is enough?
It makes one ill to think that the ladies here, some of them very young, have no
say in this. What kind of demented and warped person would do this to his
Some people need to believe that God has sent them a prophet. That there are men
who will take advantage of the meekness of the weak is to be expected. FLDS
church members are heirs to a culture they were brought up in. I haven’t
walked in their shoes but it’s not hard to see why so many of them remain
faithful. It’s the only way they know.
This is what happens when one is indoctrinated from infancy that their sacred
myths are the only absolute truth and they must blindly follow even the most
absurd request from their insane "religious" leader. If my religious
leader told me that it was an order from God that someone else has to impregnate
my wife I would say "see you later, Mr.Crazyman."
These people are supposedly Christian. But there is nothing even remotely close
to anything this bizarre in recorded Christianity. There is no scriptural basis
whatsoever for this practice. I can't think of anything to more
obviously indicate that Jeffs is a false prophet. The Bible says "By their
fruits, ye shall know them". Jeff fruits are becoming as nutty as it gets.
It was bad enough when sex was forbidden between married couples and children
were forbidden from any sports or games. If the remainder of his followers have
any common sense left at all, now is the time to indicate it and just get out.
It couldn't be any more obvious that God had absolutely nothing to do with
such a wrongful edict.I feel very sorry for the children that would result
from such a practice. To have the genetics of parents that unthinking would be
sorrowful. To eventually learn you were the result of some off-the-wall human
breeding program would be downright depressing and disgusting. With all my
heart, I hope this unverified report turns out to be false. There is absolutely
no possible good that could come from it. None!
Is there more than one cult of fundamentalist mormons? I'm asking because
that polygamist family featured on "Sister Wives" refers to their
religion as fundamentalist mormons .. yet he keeps marrying and keeps having
babies and they have never mentioned Warren Jeffs on the show. He did make it
clear in a recent show that they are very different from the LDS Mormons.
He's just lonely in prison. Once he decides which guy gets which child he
may end up with a whold lot of his pals in there with him.
And yet -- here we are, debating over gay marriage being out of the
ordinary...Personally - it don't get any nutting than this.Marriage is about L-O-V-E.And here we see even the
ultra-conservative FLDS have turned it into nothing more than the sex act
How do you enforce this? Seriously!
"Religion always comes back to who gets to have sex with whom."Wow, you learn something new everyday.
Religion always comes back to who gets to have sex with whom.
Just when I thought "It CAN'T get any nuttier than this"!!! Here
we are, so who's the lucky 15 guys? Maybe they'll have to get in the
habit of setting appointments to sire said future Jeffs' acolytes.
As if their gene pool weren't already small enough...
I bet that application line was quite long.
It's social Darwinism. Don't interfere with an enemy when they are
I suppose their agency still allows them to follow him but...wow.
Who would be insane enough to follow this insane leader?
