The Apostle Pauls Warns Christ's Followers About Mormons

Galatians 1:8-9
King James Version (KJV)

 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 
 9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Paul was an Apostle after the death of Jesus Christ.  Between the death of Christ and Paul there was a lot of oral history, as was custom in those times.  Even Jesus had the scriptures memorized, he didn't carry around the Torah with him.

But when Paul came, these traditions began to be written down and passed from village to village, and Paul himself communicated extensively through the use of letters.

Paul warns the villagers, warns them about anyone who proclaims a gospel other than that which they have been already preached - whether that  false gospel be preached by him, or either an angel, to ignore and even go as far as to curse them.

So what about The Book of Mormon?

Any non-Mormon knows that The Book of Mormon was invented as a money-making gimmick by Joseph Smith.  Good Ole Joe sent salesmen (missionaries) from village to village selling the first copies of The Book of Mormon.  Money.

It wasn't hard to find out that back in Ole Joe's day, women were readily influenced by religious peddling snakeoil salesmen.  So it was way too easy to convert The Book of Mormon into a religion, and to milk The Book of Mormon for all it was worth.

Large amounts of scriptures from the King James Version of the Holy Bible were copied and placed into The Book of Mormon.  Trouble was, Ole Joe, the con-man should have used an older translation of the Bible - it is kind of hard to push off as a NEW translation of old gold plates scriptures that were still under two hundred years old.

The Mormon Promise, or rather as the Romney Mormons call it, the Moroni Promise, has readers of the Book of Mormon read:  Moroni 10:3-5:

Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.

Cults are good at mind control and persuasion.  A cult member needs to feel the urge to belong, and feel that urge to believe.  Mormon candidates are told to read, pray and ponder the words of Moroni above.
To pray for an answer if The Book of Mormon is true.  All Mormon candidates are brought into the cult through this voluntary revelation method.

Throw in the name of Christ, mention the Holy Ghost, faith, believe - it is just short of self-hypnosis that many of low self-esteem fall for.

This is reinforced on the first Sunday of every month when all Mormons gather together and dance naked around the moon.

Just seeing if you are paying attention.

The first Sunday is Testimony Sunday and it has a powerful tranquilizing effect on the members.  Members are drawn by a "force" to come forward and bear their testimony.  The power of a mob takes affect, if one goes up, another must go up, and I don't go up, I must not believe as strongly, so I go up.  The mass hysteria is funny to watch, like rats in a maze.

One common cult closing - "I believe The Book of Mormon is true, I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on earth today, I believe Joseph Smith was a prophet."

Very seldom, if ever, did I ever hear "I believe that Jesus is the Christ.  I believe in the New Testament."

Christ and the New Testament have a small place in the Mormon Cult.  Just because Jesus Christ is in the name, doesn't mean that Jesus Christ is in the cult.

Is it bigotry to decry Mormonism like the Romneyites want us to believe?

NO.

As a Christian we are commissioned to spread the gospel the the Jews first, and then the gentiles - which includes the Pagan Mormons.

Christians do not, and actually should not, vote for a pagan candidate.

No matter how loud Romney's Mormons are in crying hatred, bigotry, discrimination against Mormons; we are commissioned by Christ to preach one message, and one message only - Christ.  Not Mormonism.

We can call Mormonism wrong, we can attack Mormon beliefs.

It is called Christianity, with our goal to get pagan Mormons to accept the real Christ - not the Mormon anti-Christ, or it's White Horse crusader, Mitt Romney.
