Mormon Cult

Here are a few quotes from a Utah education web site. Interesting.
The title of this post will take you to the original web site.

"My dear brothers and sisters and family, can't you see what we need to do? Be submissive-do not murmur-endure to the end. If we will do this, the Lord will show us the way, if we will but follow his prophets and Apostles. Do not question their direction! It is as simple as that." (Waldo P. Call, "Follow the Prophets," Ensign, Nov. 1990, 82)

Remember that there may be many questions for which we have no answers and that some things have to be accepted simply on faith. An angel of the Lord asked Adam, "Why dost thou offer sacrifices unto the Lord?" He answered, "I know not, save the Lord commanded me." (Moses 5:6.) There may be times when we are called upon to climb Mount Moriahs and to sacrifice our Isaacs without a full and prior explanation. Faith is the first principle of the gospel; it is a principle of progress. (Carlos E. Asay, "Opposition to the Work of God," Ensign, Nov. 1981, 67)

To Mormons, Faith in god is the key, to build that in people is their purpose, and everywhere you look, they express that obedience is a key to gain faith. Also, the opposite of faith is doubt, thus we must surpress our doubt and just believe, just follow and obey. You don't need to know, just fork over the money to them, let all the old men's opinions govern every thought you have, everything you wear, you watch and read, contradict what you've been taught and any logic you might have left after giving them all your "might, mind, and strength."


About Me

My photo
Michigan, United States
I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.

8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
