Mormonism alone doesn't automatically prohibit a soul from
heaven, but it will certainly limit their number down to a fraction. I
sincerely believe that souls will be saved out of all faith traditions
even the nominally Christian ones.
Of course salvation is not due to any mans work, but out
of the mercy and grace of God Almighty. Just as pagans will be saved
out of their ignorance from distant lands where the Good News
(Gospel) has not been preached. There are mormons who've never heard
anything but The book of mormon. By grace, we are saved.
Several years ago I lived in Nauvoo IL. The mormons had just
returned from Utah with massive church's wealth, which they used
liberally to build a new 'temple' in Nauvoo. As a well known Christian
of moderate to fair renown, I had an apostolic target on my
back. Anyway, about once a month two nice young men doing their two
year mission work would drop by my office, or my apartment. We always
parted as friends. I'd like to think that several of these young men
re-examined their 'faith' after hearing what the Bible has to say about
salvation. In fact, I know a few became evangelical Christians. Not by
my work, or power, but inspite of it. Don't be afraid of polite
conversation with anyone. You might be their last chance. How else will
they learn if you won't speak with them? If I would have denounced
them, no dialogue would have ever taken place.
Suffice it to say, I was on the frontline of a war
between those who follow Jesus Christ and another gospel literally.
Many were so convinced of the justness of their cause they became
hostile. What I discovered inside all this zealousness surprised me.
The witness the mormons give us of proper 'family life' is
profound. They have large and productive families, which stick together
despite their situation.
( recently Pamela Smart's family) Evangelical Christianity could
learn a lot about family by watching individual mormon families. They
even say 'families are forever' in their promotions. As the ultimate
Father, I know this makes God happy.
Hussein recently said that deciding upon an abortion was
above his pay grade. Well, for once in my life I agree with
Hussein. Deciding who gets to go 'home' to the Father is not my call.
It is certainly way above my station. I'm a broken, humbled, convicted
and sinful human being thats merely passing through; I'm ready King
Let me make myself clear. There won't be very many mormons in
heaven, but the power and witness of Jesus Christ is much better than
the confusing words of man. We need to be people of grace that befriend
all. Especially, those on the wrong path. Please don't think that your
faith is so fragile that some smart 20 year old kid can somehow snatch
you out of Jesus' hand. Jesus even tells us not to worry about being
dropped. He will surely save all those given to Him by the Father.
Casting mormons aside, or condemning them won't win any souls to the
truth. Love will, division won't. Thats the card the ancient enemies
playing to destroy the message. Don't let him shut anyone up, or
fragment our nations just cause.
Lets celebrate what a huge and positive impact Glenn Beck
has made in only 16 months. I have Tivo-ed every one of his shows. My
memory doesn't recall any promotion of mormon faith. I can't honestly
remember any open, or covert promotions of mormonism. Glenn does
promote and praise billionaire John Huntsman philantrophy. Be mature
enough to tune him out if he transgresses away from authentic Biblical
territory that misleads. Treasure a true revival of our land. Glenns
been leading that open peaceful revolt. I never dreamed that anyone
could accomplish what the Tea Party Express has done in the face of an
openly hostile media.
We absolutely need to stick together on issues we share (
The Constitution, the rule of law, immigration and the Federalist
Papers ). Glenn has inspired people out of hopelessness and isolation.
Grant him his due and move forward together in the vast areas we agree
upon and share. Divide and conquer has been the enemies plan from the
begining. Hussein and his evil cohort practice helplessness, dispare
and dependence. Until Glenn Beck lit the fire of patriotism, the
enemy had almost won.
In DC, before anyone signed the register of the Black
Battalion we were warned to be agents of truth and light. GB and the
organizers of the event knew how the hostile mainstream media MSM would
attack us.. So, before the BB could be mustered there was one rule; no
proselytizing, or provocation of any kind. All eleven thousand present
and 150 thousand signatores were in complete agreement. If these wise
men can lay down their agendas can't you? Celebrating and
protecting our blessed Judeo-Christian America is the only agenda I've
seen out of GB.
To date, I still haven't read or heard any mormon banter
out of GB. I'm sure your sources, url's etc, all come from legitimate
places. I don't doubt your intentions are good and wholesome, but
remember Christ has made us immune to lies, He wrote us all an
extensive instruction manel, so we couldn't be led astray. All praise,
glory, honor and thankgivings be to Jesus Christ our Lord!
