Arise: Contend for the Faith - vs. cults, 'world religions,' winds of doctrines, heresies, blasphemies, Satanic lies....
The Mormons - the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints"
"Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice. Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with His people, and HE will plead with Israel." Micah 6:1-2
. The Mormons are not Morons, but they are definitely not christians either - the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints"
Once upon a time, Mormonism, the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" was widely recognized for what it was and is, a damnable lie, a sham, an imitation of christianity devised by Satan to overthrow the faith of some poor ignorant people and thus to rob them of eternal life in the eternal Kingdom of God; but now in today's brave new world, i.e., in the corrupted blinded USA of Today, Mormonism is widely accepted as being a christian denomination!
Thanks to hireling ministers, incompetent ministers, Satan's "christian" mole ministers, aka wolves in sheep's clothing, and Bible teachers and Theologians who are unworthy and unfit, many professing christians of today are ignorant of basic Christian truths and doctrines, and do not understand that Christianity is mutually exclusive from all religions, philosophies, and psuedo-sciences master-minded by Satan; Christianity is eternally opposed to works of Satan!
If any person chooses to subscribe to Mormonism, they may, even as they may choose to embrace Satanism if they wish, they are both from the same source, i.e., from Satan. According to Jesus Christ and God's Word, Satan came only to steal, murder, and destroy, and Satan is intractably at war with God, with God's Christ, with the Holy Ghost, and with God's people....
Many people who are among the Mormon ranks grew up in Mormon families and are ignorant of true christianity, they are typically also ignorant of much of Mormonism, even as many Masons are ignorant of the true nature of "Free Masonry"; many others have been proselytized from Roman Catholic or institutional protestant churches, e.g., Episcopal, Methodist, or Lutheran, and while not wholly ignorant of christianity, are virtually so, coming from churches which are bordering on apostacy or worse.
Many people among the Mormon ranks are among the best of sinners (no, not the best at committing sin, but the most upright of sinners); but they are lost, separated from God, apart from Christ Jesus, and they will suffer eternal condemnation except they come to faith in Jesus Christ and renounce mormonism.
The native american Mormon religion (not American Indian) has roots in Masonry, even as it has roots in the Occult, then too it copied outwardly from christianity; it shares the evils of Masonry and the Occult, and clothes itself in the sheep's clothing of exterior trappings of institutional christianity.
. If you have a heart for truth, and desire to know and worship the true God, seek him in His Holy Word, the Holy Bible, and you will find Him.
"Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then? JESUS answered, Thou sayest that I am a king, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth?"
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins."
I Corinthians 3:11
"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
"Fear not, I am the first and the last; I am he that liveth and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death."
"I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
. For decades the Mormons have wisely invested heavily in mass media advertising, employing the services of the most skillful of Madison Avenue advertising firms to craft extraordinarily effective media collateral, especially television commercials. Some of their recent TV campaign advertisements feature "man on the street" clips of people responding to the question of what they understand their purpose in life is to be, with none of those pictured having any understanding of what their purpose is. The commercials make it clear that the Mormons possess the answer to the ultimate purpose of peoples' lives, all peoples' lives. As with all of the Mormon's proselytizing and recruiting efforts, the key to their success is the ignorance of their targets, whether unbelievers or professing christians! The last image of the commercials is:
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
Whereas, the truth is that the Mormons offer only Lies Reinforced!
. As time runs short prior to the world-wide takeover by Satan, followed by the triumphant return of Jesus Christ, the Mormons are going all out; since so little time remains they are going for broke!
Now that the Mormons have succeeded in defining themselves as the quintessential "family" church community, they have embarked on a program of aggressive advertisements purporting to be promoting the Jesus of the Bible. They began during the Christmas-shopping season with an advertisement supposedly focusing on the Christmas story - Joy to the World. They have followed that during the "Easter"-shopping season with an advertisement purportedly pertaining to Christ's atoning death, burial, and resurrection - Lamb of God. Each of these advertisement campaigns features a free Video (Joy to the World or Lamb of God), and offers a free Bible (KJV yet!).
What is truly remarkable about these advertisement campaigns is that the gospel is diametrically opposite to the false religion that Mormonism/"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" is. Any person who responds to these crafty advertisements to receive a free Bible will of course be continuously visited by Mormon "missionaries" who will see to it that the person does not stumble upon the truth of God and eternal life through His Word; still, it is a remarkable gamble to offer Bibles to people who are interested in learning about Jesus Christ! The Mormons are not reckless gamblers, they have very carefully crafted this plan, they know that only people who are ignorant of God's Word will respond to them, people who are desirous of some meaning to life and answers beyond the world's, people who are interested in considering the claims of Jesus Christ, people who are willing to submit to some degree to leadership that is not merely human. The Mormons are totally convinced that they can lead these impressionable ignorant babes exactly where they want to (i.e., to membership in the Mormon ranks, enslavement to the enemy of their souls, and ultimately eternal condemnation!). Why would people seek to enslave and destroy others, because they themselves are enslaved and serve the demands of a frightful master, the anti-christ, Satan!

. CBM's editor's brief comments regarding the Quran/Koran, Muhammad/Mohammed...and also concerning responding to JESUS CHRIST to receive salvation.
Islam or Al-Islam, is a cult with many similarities to Mormonism or the so-called 'Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints,' though Islam is referred to by the intelligentsia as one of the Great World Religions, along with such false religions as Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism....
Islam and Mormonism pay lip service to Christianity, and feign respect for and agreement with foundational tenets of Christianity, while in fact substantively contradicting Christianity at virtually every turn. Both Islam and Mormonism plagiarize the Holy Bible. Why, simply this, they, Islam and Mormonism and all other cults and false religions the world over, have a father in common, and their father is Satan the father of lies who came only to steal, and murder, and destroy. Satan is hellbent on destroying all that is of God, but his first and foremost attack is against the authority of God's Word, the Bible, and against God's Son Jesus Christ, the only saviour, the only mediator between God and man. Still, Satan is capable of great subtlety, and recognizes people's respect for the Holy Bible, so while he has crafted religions which dismiss the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ, and God the Father, he has also crafted religions which pay 'respect' to the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ, and God the Father by plagiarizing the Holy Bible, stating that Jesus was a good man, a great teacher, a prophet, stating that their (false) religion is the one that truly worships the one true God. Thus Satan comes from many angles at his objective of supplanting the Holy Bible, God the Father, and Jesus Christ the Son, the Saviour.
Over the years I have known of a number of people who are Mormons or Muslims, many of them as far as I can tell are fine people, fine sinners, people who Jesus Christ came and suffered and died to save, people who Satan has conspired to deceive and destroy for all eternity, by causing them to sin against themselves, sin against God, die in their sins, and suffer eternal damnation.
Satan is a liar; all lies have their origin in the father of lies, Satan. Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and Mohammed/Muhammad were false prophets, liars, they served their master Satan in conspiring to deceive people into rejecting Jesus Christ the Messiah the Saviour, the only name given under heaven by which we may be saved, and into following their lead, in worshipping the ultimate false god, the master of demons, Satan.
Mormonism and Islam are religions of fear...not godly fear.
The god of Islam is in fact Satan, and Satan uses people to accomplish his end which is to inflict as much damage as he can upon the Kingdom of God.
. The Mormons are not Morons, very far from it!
In case you have been sleeping for a few decades: the Mormons by investing their resources in using the technologies the world has afforded, have unimaginably succeeded in out-advertising all of christendom, and not only out-advertising, but employing advertising to reinvent and redefine themselves (and thus to reinvent and redefine true christianity). The Mormons have employed subtlety directly from the master of subtlety, the mastermind of Mormonism, Satan. When the Mormons made the decision to employ the most skilled of Madison Avenue advertising firms to craft the most impressive and deceptive of advertisement campaigns, and to commit to invest largely of their large financial resources to reach the people of the USA of Today and to continue to do so without any let up to the very end, they made a decision and commitment to succeed in overthrowing millions of people for all eternity. The print, television, and radio advertisements created and disseminated over the past few decades for the Mormons constitute an absolutely masterful propaganda campaign, second to none, i.e., not even inferior to the propaganda campaigns of the propaganda-masters, e.g., those conducted by the Clintons, by the Bloody Red Communist Chinese regime, by the 'former' Communist Soviet Union, and by Hitler's Nazi Reich! The reinvention of Mormonism as the ultimate wholesome, all-American, traditional family 'christian' 'denomination' has been a master-stroke of propaganda that is simply second to no other propaganda campaign ever devised and conducted. True christianity has utterly failed to respond to the devastating challenge presented by the Mormons; true christianity deserves to be greatly blamed, and many christian leaders condemned, for this unimaginably shameful and damnably ruinous failure!
. The Mormons are not Morons, but (their wonderfully false advertising notwithstanding) they are what they are.
According to Jon Krakauer author Under The Banner Of Heaven, the Mormons (i.e., the Mormon establishment) "renounced" polygamy.
Yet the Mormons uphold the 'legitimacy,' the 'rightness' of so-called 'plural marriage,' i.e., polygamy, the same as the so-called outlaw sects of zealots, i.e., Mormon Fundamentalists, i.e., the FLDS, the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints. The Mormon establishment to this day insists (via its "Missionaries") that its polygamist past was God-commanded, was 'plural marriage,' and was conditionally put aside in 1890 for pragmatic reasons (i.e., hateful persecution from the US Government, and to obtain Utah statehood), but that it can be brought back when God deems it is time to bring it back and so communicates via the "prophet" in place at the head of the Mormon "church" at that time.
What Krakauer utterly fails to consider or recognize is that Mormonism is Mormonism is Mormonism.
When my family lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, Mormon elder-statesmen, seasoned home missionaries who were up in years (not the usual teenage 'elders,' aka missionaries) in response to my mother's questioning told her that if/when polygamy was 'needed' in the future, polygamy would be reinstated!!
My mother and I were instructed that it was mandatory that I be baptized before I turned 12 years of age, or I would not be permitted to enter the "priesthood."
[Can you tell me where in God's Holy Bible you have ever read anything of the kind?]
In response to my mother's questioning, they told her that baptism in the Mormon church was baptism into the Mormons, vs. baptism into christianity, i.e., that their baptism made you a Mormon, not a christian.
Communion in the Mormon "church" is without grapejuice or wine, because it is a bloodless communion; it is a sham communion; the blood of Jesus Christ has nothing to do with Mormon "communion."
Additionally, my mother was told that if God changed his mind about blacks being included in the "priesthood," He would communicate this to "the Prophet" who would communicate this to the "church." Sure enough some time later, the pragmatic Mormon leadership decided to include blacks in the "priesthood" in order to remove a considerable hindrance to proselytizing blacks.
The so-called "Reformed Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" was formed when Joseph Smith's first wife, his genuine wife, rebelled over Joseph's instituting polygamy (so he could create a harem for himself). She should have had sense enough to renounce the whole sham Mormon religion, knowing what a lying, cheating, stealing, immoral man Joseph was, but no instead she sanitized Mormonism!
Ironically, the whole "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" morphed into a "reformed" version in order to win public acceptance and statehood, at the behest of their "prophet" and leadership group, this purportedly at the direction of their god.
The Mormon men who split from the main group, did so in order to maintain the feature of greatest appeal to them, and "sanctioned" their split by setting up their own "prophet" and taking the name of "Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints."
People, if you want Mormonism instead of christianity, you may certainly have it, but know this; membership in the Mormons not only will not provide you with salvation and eternal life, but rather it will cheat you and your loved ones out of salvation and eternal life. Therefore, choose wisely, choose life through Jesus Christ, and flee Mormonism, for why should you permit liars and destroyers the likes of Joseph Smith to rob you of salvation and eternal life that Jesus Christ came and suffered to purchase for you? If you choose Mormonism instead of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, then God the Father will not hold you guiltless.
Mormonism and christianity are mutually exclusive, choose what you will, but know that the consequences are eternal; therefore, if you are in Mormonism, save yourself and come out of it, flee from Satan and his wiles today while there is still time to receive God's free gift, eternal life through His only begotten son Jesus Christ.
. The truth is:
No human race has a corner on the market on righteousness, goodness, godliness; no. All have sinned and fallen short of the kingdom of God. All are under sin, and lost, and damned, absent a saviour.
God is the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians.
The Holy Bible is God's Holy Word, the Holy scriptures, given for all peoples.
Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, Yeshua, Y'shua, there is no other name given on earth by which we may be saved.
Jesus came from heaven, sacrificed, laid down his life a perfect sinless atonement for sin, so that whosoever of any nation or race of people on earth would choose to believe on him as Saviour, and receive him as their Saviour would be forgiven their sins and inherit eternal life.
Jesus the Christ is the only Saviour there is for any and for all people, whether they be Jew or Gentile, white, black, brown, red, yellow...semitic, caucasian, european, scandinavian, negroid/african, arabic, oriental/asian, hispanic/latino....
The Hebrew faith, and the Christian faith (completed Hebrew faith) were fashioned and breathed by God.
All other 'faiths' & religions are lies, are shams, are pagan, heathen, infidel, and are Satanic to the core (infinitely, and damnably worse than merely inferior, lacking, or deficient).
Is this to say that most professing Jews and Christians are saved and destined to enjoy eternal life with God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, and the heavenly host in the eternal Kingdom of God? No, sadly, regrettably no.
. A Few Key Defining Characteristics or Hallmarks of Cults
They attempt to diminish GOD - they misrepresent GOD as being grossly inferior to the Almighty GOD He truly is.
They attempt to diminish Jesus Christ - they portray Him as being less than divine, as being only a man, e.g., only a 'good man,' perhaps a prophet, a great teacher, but God? Never!
They attempt to diminish the Holy Ghost - they represent the Holy Ghost as being less than divine, and even less than human, i.e., subhuman!
They attempt to corrupt, subvert, and pervert, the Word of God - they do this via 'translation,' plagiarism, and substitution. An example of the cults' 'translations' is the Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation; an example of the cults' plagiarism is the Koran/Quran; examples of the cults' substitution are the J.W.'s (the so-called "Jehovah's Witnesses") voluminous Watchtower publications, the Mormon's Book of Mormon, and the Doctrines & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.
They deny Hell and deny the Lake of Fire & Brimstone. In the place of coming judgment followed by eternal suffering, they substitute a very finite suffering of death, annihilation, extermination, followed by absence of suffering.
They typically teach that the one unforgivable sin is to leave their ranks, with the most extremely damnable demonstration of such 'unfaithfulness' being to repent and turn to Jesus the Christ for salvation (to become His converts, His disciples, His followers)!!!!
& They attempt to control you (and your family) and your life, and thus, your eternal destiny!
No, this is not Salt Lake City....
. The spiritual reality is that Mormonism is a Satanically masterminded sham religion, fashioned to imitate, plagiarize, supplant, overcome, and destroy Christianity (or completed Jewry). From its inception Mormonism has been engaged in mortal & immortal combat with Christianity. Mormonism, its so-called 'prophets' Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and all of their successor false 'prophets,' and their god Satan, are at war with Christianity, at war with the Christ, the Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, at war with the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit, and at war with God the Father, God Almighty.
But if you have read God's Word, the Holy Bible, you know that all false religions, and their adherents, and their false god, Satan, will be overthrown and eternally condemned.

Holy! Holy? Holy, you say? What is Holy; what makes "Holy" holy, or what is legitimately entitled to be termed Holy?
Subchapters addressing so-called "great world religions," i.e., false religions:
Islam - The Quran Is Not The Word of God
Don't be conned by Confucianism, Buddhism....
Subchapters addressing major Cults made in the USA:
The Mormons are not Morons, but they are definitely not christians either - the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints"
False Witnesses - The Watchtower Society, aka the "Jehovah's Witnesses"
Subchapter addressing cultic christian churches, which are not cults but share one cult-defining characteristic:
Cultic christian churches
. The times which lay ahead are very evil times indeed, but they are numbered, and after Satan has inflicted a reign of several unprecedentedly murderous years of global occupation and destruction, the LORD JESUS CHRIST will return in glory as righteous judge to execute judgment and justice on all those who have resisted, refused, and rejected the Love of God, Jesus the Christ.
Eternal relationship with God through Jesus Christ the Son, requires more than mental assent or belief that Jesus Christ is God the Son ('Billy Grahamic' or modernistic American christian evangelism notwithstanding). Eternal relationship with God requires obedience to God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son (John 12,13,14,15...).
