Re: Do They Really Believe This?

Oh and it is also the belief that Satan was cast out because he threw a huge fit and rebelled over us having free will. But I don't believe that because it says outright in the bible that he tried to take over heaven and dethrone God.

I guess if you think about it, one is just as believable as the other. Mormons are leary of the king James bible because it was translated by a bunch of Catholics.

i've mentioned that 'the correct answer is 'Mormons' here before; but i guess no one got the reference. SP was the most socially relevant tv going, the first couple years. I think the mantle has passed to The Boondocks now...and i am anti-tv, btw.

There is a few truths scattered throughout the video, but the bulk of it is cr@p. Can I type that word? All the gods on all the planets, and having orgies???? Ummm, no. I'll tell you what I was told: God indeed sent us here to live, learn and grow. Satan thought we needed to be forced to do things. Jesus said no, we should be allowed free agency (free will). If we choose his atonement, which we needed after Adam and Eves fall, which God knew about ahead of time and planned for, then we will go back to live with him. The extra stuff about having relations with Mary, I have also never heard of.

The scriptures do mention being cursed with blackness of skin, but honestly, I just thought that meant they got gangrene or some similar disease. Gangrene WOULD be a curse, especially back then, but simply having darker skin? What's the big deal with that?

I don't know WHO made this video.
It actually has the feel of being mormon produced. If so, then it was from years ago. Like other beliefs, some attitudes and opinions change over time.

There are some things with the doctrine I don't agree with, but nothing I'd consider deal breakers.
Mormons used to have rather racist views back in the day, but didn't most everyone?

Re: Do They Really Believe This?

I was raised in an All-Black, store front, Apostolic, oneness, Jesus name Pentecostal church. I went astray for a few years and joined the Mainstream Salt Lake Utah Based Mormon church. I joined because I felt alone, and wanted a place to "Fit in" and "Feel Needed". Mormons are lovely, sincere, civic-minded people. Their charity work they do is unmatched by any faith of any sort.

But there is such a thing as being sincere, yet sincerely mis-led and deceived. In the end, I found out the faith I was raised with was right, and was all I truly needed. I care about the mormons and wish them well, but the "Jesus" they claim to worship is NOT the Jesus of the Bible.
