Truth vs False

The difference between the Bible and Mormon writings:

"A truthful witness saves lives [the Bible], but a false witness is deceitful [the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants]." Proverbs 14:25

Spreading the truth brings light and life. Everything that is false brings darkness and death.

Move away from the thing that brings damnation into salvation.

"A false witness [the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants] will not go unpunished, and he [Joseph Smith and the like] who pours out lies will perish." Proverbs 19:9

I've been enjoying finding other "ex-mormons". I think it is interesting to find that about half become atheist and about half turn to Christianity (I know, Mormons say they are Christians, but you know what I mean). I think I'd classify myself as agnostic at this point. I like to believe in God and I think there are some very cool stories about Jesus... I just wouldn't "swear" that there is a God or that Jesus walked on water, etc. Great blog. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, your right. It is always half and half for the most part. If I didn't believe so strongly in Jesus, I too would have been in the other half.
My 'calling' in this life is to open the eyes of all to the false teachings of the Mormon faith. Not too many Mormons out there dig deep enough to see it for themselves.
God Bless,

Ezekiel 28:9 "Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee."

So much for the notion that you can become a 'god' by spilling your own blood to atone for your sins. I wonder if Old Joe thought the same thing as the mob lynched him?
This passage, actually, is about the King of Tyrus and some site this person as a personification of the devil. Interesting how that can also apply to Smith and other false prophets too.
Clearly the Mormon doctrines are as bizarre as they can be. One wonders how any intelligent person can believe that garbage. Yet many do. The also ignore many other passages, such as Isaiah 43:10 "Ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me."
Well that either makes God a liar or it makes Joe a liar? I don't know about anyone reading this blog, but I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT it's the Lord in the pit, crying out to Smith, begging him to send Lazarus to "....testify unto them (his brethren), lest they also come into this place of torment." (Luke 16:28) That pit is reserved for all non-Christians, false prophets, liars, and those who reject the freely-given mercy found in the forgiveness of Christ Jesus our Lord.
AMEN.

About Me

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.
2.I believe the Bible to be the Holy Inspired word of God with full truth and righteousness. No other writing is.
3.I believe that the work of the Lord comes first. Before any temporal thing or person.
4.I believe that grace is a gift and Christ gives that gift freely to all who believe.
5.I believe that the beauty of a woman is contained inside of her and not by what she looks like on the outside.
6.I believe that marriage is sacred and represents the Godhead on earth; two are one just as three are one.
7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
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.
9.I believe that the Aaronic, Levitical, and Melchizedek priesthoods are abolished and Christs Holy Priesthood whom Christ is the "Great High Priest" is eternal.
10.I believe that every believer is a priest in the "Priesthood of Believers".
11.I believe that when two are one, nobody is to separate the one.
12.I believe that Christ is the only way to heaven.

14.I believe that liars make fools out of others and the liar hates the fool.
15.I believe that all believers are in authority to preach the gospel.
16.I believe that the word 'organization' to describe Christs body is evil and has no place with God.
17.I believe the Americas are not the land of Zion and Christ will return to His origonal land-Israel in the Middle East.
18.I believe that God has set out correct ways of worshiping Him, not man.
19.I believe in holding to the truths of the Bible and not mans understanding of it.
20.I believe that the world is full of evil and Satan can easily gain control over the minds of those who do not profess Christ of the Bible to be their only Messiah.
21.I believe that Saints are those who know the real Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks of; not the jesus of a cult.
