Glenn’s son was baptized over the weekend

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

It was quite an eye opening experience for Glenn this weekend as he had the opportunity to baptize his son Raphe. As he stood there in the water with his son, Glenn was overcome with a sense of purpose and clarity on what our biggest job as parents truly is.

“My son got baptized this weekend. In my faith we don’t do infant baptism. We do it at 8 years old, the age of accountability when you can decide, you know. I don’t believe in original sin, and my son now knows if he’s stealing something, he now knows he’s stealing. Now he’s being held accountable. And so at 8 years old we get baptized and so he did that, and I had a chance to baptize him myself. And standing there in the water with your son at 8 years old gives you a couple of things: One, what a huge responsibility it is to be a parent and, jeez, have I taught him anything of value. Have I ‑‑ I mean, he’s there, but this is his first step. Does he even really understand it? And then the second thing that crosses your mind is how fast time is going.”

“I was talking to my sister yesterday and one of her friends who is a friend of mine, a childhood friend of mine, passed away. She was, what, 52? And we’re getting to the point, has anybody else gotten to the point in their life yet where you’re the next generation now? You know how you ‑‑ remember when you were a kid, you had the uncles who were like, ‘Oh, and I got bad gas and I got ‑‑ I had to have my liver removed and… and Ethel fried it up with some onions and we ate it and it was delicious but then it gave me some bad gas.’ And you always had those talks with the old people who were always losing teeth or something was going on with them. They were always having organs removed or exploratory surgery and then they would just die. And ‑‑ but you always had generations in between you. Now I’m to the point to where it’s my parents and then I’m the one that, with the bad gas. We’re the ones!”

“Time is going so fast. And for me at least, it ties in to the election because I don’t think I’m alone. I think some of us feel like we’ve wasted four years. We did all these things and we wasted four years, and more of our brothers and sisters out on the streets, they still don’t get it and they don’t care.”

“So what are we going to do? Waste another four years? I want to talk to you about that tonight if that’s the way you feel because that’s the way I feel, and I want to talk to you about it tonight because I think I have some perspective on it.”

    Republican’s are abandoning tax pledges that they made to their constituents thus giving democrats a leg up in our fight and you’re talking about your kids? Really?

    lol, Beck ran out of important stuff to talk about back about 5 years ago.  
    it’s all recycled.

    his kid getting baptized is new stuff.

    I love you Glenn, but Mormonism is a false religion.  Please, do your own homework.

    You are a idiot. Everything we DO WE DO FOR OUR CHILDREN! Do you think people are out there fighting JUST for YOU? Really? No we do it for our family’s. And when they reach a milestone we want to share it because THAT is what life is all about. It’s not about being a Republican or anyone else. It’s about being an American and FREEDOM to be whatever you want to be.  You need to look in your heart and see that life is not about you. So proud of your son Glenn!! And to be the one to baptize him yourself! Wonderful and God could not of given you a greater gift.

    Bro Beck;  I baptized my children years ago, but still it is such a special memory to me.  I am so thankful to learn of the church 16 years ago.  It has been such a blessing to my family.  I shudder to think where I would be and what my children would be doing without the gospel.  You will have the same feeling when your son tells you he wants to serve a mission.  Mine is in Chile now.

    Very nice.. I watched the TV show today and I thought it was one of your best. I had tears when you were talking about how much your audience meant to you. I have always felt that way about you, as if I new you. I live in the Seattle area not far from Mt Vernon where I have visited and thought it was a “”cute” little town.

    The Gospel is not the Mormon gospel, which puts man in front of God and claims that man himself can also become a God. The Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ, that we who are sinners can be forgiven through no merit of our own, but through the merit of Jesus Christ, by grace through faith for all that believe. And all those who believe not are condemned already. The Mormon claim that you will ever be able to merit your own salvation is a lie, and all those who claim to be good make God out to be a liar.

    Hey Glenn, every human is entitled to believe what they choose. It is great to hear that you are so proud of your belief, both in faith and in your political choice, but don’t expect EVERYBODY else to agree with you. You have also made many errors in judgment, especially the spread of doom and gloom predictions.

    That was a very thoughtful comment, and I appreciate it.  I just wanted to clear up confusion for people who might read this.  Mormons DO NOT believe that man can merit their own salvation.  We believe that only through Jesus Christ can salvation be achieved. Here is a simple little explanation of that on a site that provides the most fundamental of our beliefs:
    http://mormon.org/jesus-christI hope that none from our church have offended you to make you so valiantly make these claims, which I know to be false as a member who studies the doctrine that I believe every day. But if someone in this church has offended you, I am so sorry.  You really do seem to understand what is important in life, and I respect that so much.  We need more people like you in the world, especially the United States. I just wanted to try my best to clear up what appears to be a possible misunderstanding on such an important topic to me.  Regarding the potential to become more like our God after this life, we certainly do not believe that we will be greater than our God, but we hope to become as perfect and close to him as we can be. Jesus Christ certainly taught that we should try to be perfect (Mathew 5:48) and he provided us the ONLY means to even have a shot at improving in this life. Repentance through him and his atonement.

    He has Sam. If you knew anything about him, you would know that he did his own homework and came to the conclusion that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the church for him. Please don’t insinuate that us Mormons are stupid and that we don’t know anything about our own religion. It gets tiresome after the millionth time or so. Really, we hear it quite often. I’m pretty sure you’re not going to convince him and that we’re not going to convince you.

    It never ceases to amaze me, as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, how many Pharisees have to make comments about Mormonism being a false religion. You are not Christians in my eyes when you belittle someone elses faith, in fact you remind me of the Pharisees in Jesus’ day. They too, could not accept him (or his Apostles) because they too were “stuck” with the Maw of Moses. Just who do you think you are to denegrade someone else’s religion or something that someone experiences that is beautiful to them? If you do not believe in Mormonism or have feelings about it, fine. But you are not a Christian posting hateful statements, nor would I post statements like I have read here on someone elses page. The man who gave his life for his beliefs (Joseph Smith) said: “We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may”. He was alot more tolerant of other peoples faith than some of you are.

    As a lifelong member of the LDS faith I can tell you Ricardo – you are wrong! It is only through Jesus Christ and his merits we are saved, not by our works. There is nothing I can do to save myself and that my friend is what we believe. From the Book of Mormon:
    2 Ne. chapt 2:6 Wherefore, redemption cometh in and through the Holy Messiah; for he is full of grace and truth.
     7 Behold, he offereth himself a sacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law, unto all those who have a broken heart and a contrite spirit; and unto none else can the ends of the law be answered.

    Mormonism uses a lot of the same words that Christianity does, but they mean them entirely different. And the trend has been over the past few years for the LDS to obfuscate Mormon doctrine, though in the past Smith himself was happy to refer to Christianity as an abomination.  

    The salvation through Jesus Christ you refer to is an automatic one, that applies to all of humanity regardless of belief or unbelief. The salvation of the Mormon Church is that through personal works, one may achieve the Celestial Heaven (failures go to the lower heavens) where one may become a god. Not like a god, but a god. 

    “I wish to declare I have always an in all congregations when I have preached on the subject of Deity, it has been the plurality of Gods.”-    Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., History of the Church, v. 6, p. 306

    “Each God, through his wife or wives, raises up a numerous family of sons and daughters…. [E]ach father and mother will be in a condition to multiply forever. As soon as each God has begotten many millions of male and female spirits… he, in connection with his sons, organizes a new world… where he sends both the male and female spirits to inhabit tabernacles of flesh and bones…. The inhabitants of each world are required to reverence, adore, and worship their own personal father who dwells in the Heaven which they formerly inhabited.”-    Apostle Orson Pratt, The Seer, v. 1, p. 37

    “Women are queens and priestesses but not gods. The Godhead, the ‘Presidency of Heaven,’ is a presidency of three male deities, similar to a stake presidency whose members each have wives who are responsible for domestic religious education but not ecclesiastical functions.” -    Rodney Turner, retired BYU religion professor, Sunstone Panel Discussion, September 7, 1991.

    Here is the Bible’s opinion: 

    Isa_44:8  Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. 

    Joh_3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    And as for works, here is the way to be perfect: 

    Mat 19:16-21  And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  (17)  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  (18)  He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,  (19)  Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  (20)  The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?  (21)  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

     So far, I’ve never heard of a Mormon ever doing this. There have never been any that have lived a perfect life, unless you count the nice hair and shiny teeth. But, there is good news:

     (25)  When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?  (26)  But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

    You are so right! Joseph Smith and the leaders of the LDS agree. These Christians bigots aren’t worth a thing!: 

    “What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world”-    Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 270 

    “…all the priests who adhere to the sectarian religions of the day with all their followers, without one exception, receive their portion with the devil and his angels.”-    Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. , The Elders Journal, v. 1, no. 4, p. 60

    “Nothing less than a complete apostasy from the Christian religion would warrant the establishment of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”-    Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., History of the Church, v. 1, p. xl”

    “Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth.”-    Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 6, p. 176″

    When the light came to me I saw that all the so-called Christian world was groveling in darkness.”-    Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 5, p. 73 

    “With a regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world.”-    Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 8, p. 199″

    The Christian world, so-called, are heathens as to the knowledge of the salvation of God”-    Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 8, p. 171

    “…the time came when Paganism was engrafted into Christianity, and at last Christianity was converted into Paganism rather than converting the Pagans. And subsequently the Priesthood was taken from among men, this authority was re-called into the heavens, and the world was left without the Priesthood—without the power of God—without the Church and Kingdom of God.”-    Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 22, p. 44

    (“Christians—those poor, miserable priests brother Brigham was speaking about—some of them are the biggest whoremasters there are on the earth, and at the same time preaching righteousness to the children of men. The poor devils, they could not get up here and preach an oral discourse, to save themselves from hell; they are preaching their fathers’ sermons —preaching sermons that were written a hundred years before they were born. …You may get a Methodist priest to pour water on you, or sprinkle it on you, and baptize you face foremost, or lay you down the other way, and whatever mode you please, and you will be damned with your priest.-    Apostle Heber C. Kimball, Journal of Discourses, v. 5, p. 89Prophet John Taylor (1808 – 1887):

    “Christianity…is a perfect pack of nonsense…the devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century.” -    Prophet John Taylor, Journal of Discourses, v. 6, p. 167

    “Where shall we look for the true order or authority of God? It cannot be found in any nation of Christendom.”-    Prophet John Taylor, Journal of Discourses, v. 10, p. 127

    “What! Are Christians ignorant? Yes, as ignorant of the things of God as the brute beast.”-    Prophet John Taylor, Journal of Discourses, v. 13, p. 225″

    What does the Christian world know about God? Nothing… Why so far as the things of God are concerned, they are the veriest fools; they know neither God nor the things of God.”-    Prophet John Taylor, Journal of Discourses, v. 13, p. 225

     Dude, I’ve heard it all. There are plenty of Mormon Apologetic websites out there; why don’t you hash it out with people from those websites or somebody who cares to have a pointless discussion with you that will likely accomplish nothing?

    Elder Bruce R. McConkie indicated:

    “To be called is to be a member of the Church and kingdom of God on earth; it is to be numbered with the saints; it is to accept the gospel and receive the everlasting covenant; it is to have part and lot in the earthly Zion; it is to be born again, to be a son or a daughter of the Lord Jesus Christ; to have membership in the household of faith; it is to be on the path leading to eternal life and to have the hope of eternal glory; it is to have a conditional promise of eternal life; it is to be an inheritor of all the blessings of the gospel, provided there is continued obedience to the laws and ordinances thereof.”

    Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3:326 

    “If we get our salvation, we shall have to pass by him [Joseph Smith]; if we enter our glory, it will be through the authority he has received. We cannot get around him [Joseph Smith]“-    Apostle George Q. Cannon, Melchizedek Priesthood Study Guide, 1988, p. 142 

    Interesting wording for a salvation that is gained through no merit of oneself. Not to mention the whole getting through with Joseph Smith’s approval thing. You should contact the LDS and have them clarify. This is different from what you’ve told me. Maybe you’ve been wrong all your life?

    Love how well you have read your Bible Ricardo, and Sam this applies to you as well. 

    How many times does Christ himself say that we can have his Fathers powers? How many times does he say that we can heal the sick? What powers was he talking about us gaining?

    What about his line “In my Fathers house are many mansions” ? We believe that there are levels of Heaven, much like Dantes levels of Hell. You go where you deserve to be. What, did you think we would all get wings and flit about in those mansions singing “Kumbaya My Lord” all day long for eternity? No offense, but who would consider THAT Heaven? Mormons believe that those among those levels within the mansions are worlds that we can guide and direct AS GOD HAS SHOWN AND WILL SHOW US HOW TO DO. We are promised repeatedly that we can grow and improve, forever. Forever is a long long time.Exactly where have you seen Mormons claim to provide their own salvation? Your PAID minister may very well try to tell you that, or someone else who makes a living off of attacking the LDS Church, but just because someone lies to you does NOT make that lie true. We do believe that OUR acts WILL be counted towards helping us to be deserving to be lifted to the highest of heights, but we positively know that is is ONLY through Christ that ANYONE will be saved. Trying to live a Christlike life is now a negative in your eyes?Anything (nonmaterial) that you gain in this life you will take forward with you, be that a willingness to help your neighbor, serve your Lord, gain musical talents, learn new skills or knowledge, obtain a nicotine, drug or alcohol addiction. Patience, rudeness, whatever. What you learn here, positive or negative, you bring to eternity with you. Guess what, relationships, your family, your parents, kids and spouse are another one of those things that you can maintain. No one will force anything on you. If you want to be with your spouse, and they want to be with you, and you have both lived worthily to be together, THAT is a major point of being in Heaven…..Are you one of those who believe that so long as you muttered the Words “Jesus Save me” or whatever the magic words are this week then you are saved; no matter how many people you murder, or rob, or even merely spend hours on the internet trying to denigrate the fervently held religious beliefs of people you don’t  know with NO IDEA what you are talking about? Ever heard of that little group of what was it, 10 commandments? Don’t you remember that one of them was to NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS? For those of you who need a translation that means don’t lie about someone else. You are spouting off things you do NOT know are true about Mormons, because they are not true, which means you are lying which means you are breaking the commandments.I understand your “concern” for Mormons souls….. but guess what…. I am absolutely positively 100% completely certain that even if Mormonism is totally false, which I am sure it is not, but unlike you, I know I am not perfect and can admit to the chance to at least consider such a thing as being wrong. Regardless if Mormonism were completely totally wrong, Christ, and His Father would look at Mormons, and say, Hmmm, they made a mistake, but they were totally devoted and dedicated to what they believed in their mistaken belief. Their mistake took THEM down the wrong path to me, but they certainly tried. They did NOT run around murdering people who do not believe in their faith, they spent their time trying to grow, do some good, and help others around them. They did NOT snipe around websites trying to berate others beliefs with lies and innuendo.They WOULD stand up for themselves when it was necessary, but in general would turn the other cheek. Funny the time, energy and effort so many people put into attacking a religion which does them no possible harm. Actually not funny, it is sad. Satan has such a powerful grip on your soul that you believe that  it is right to attack people you have never even met. If Mormons were leading people to mass suicides, or training people to strap bombs on and walk into a crowd of who even cares who is there and detonate themselves, advocating for Theistic rule (religious leaders running the country), or otherwise striving to destroy life as we know it I would have serious problems with it myself, but the closest it has EVER come to making any public political statement is TRYING to support Biblical marriage and families. Again, let me guess, the Bible is 100% correct in absolutely everything, except that gay marriage is cool, and maybe female priests, that there adultery thing is old fashioned, and hey anything else you feel needs updating, just feel free to ignore……

    I am NOT a spokesman for the Mormon Church, not do I claim to be a scriptural expert. This is a few short lines to try to convey a VERY basic bit of understanding of some of these clowns outright lies. If you want to ignore the Church, ignore it, but before you attack it, the Commandments direct you to to learn the TRUTH about it, not spread false witness. 

    If you were going to learn about the Catholic Church, you would NOT read Dan Browns anti-church novels like DaVinci Code or Angels and Demons, you would talk to a Catholic, or a Priest, or read Catholic books. If you want to learn about the Mormon Church, talk to a Mormon, talk to a Mormon Missionary, or read books about the Church FROM the Church, not from people trying to make money off attacking them. LDS.Org can teach you tons and tons of details about the Mormon Church from the source, not from rambling Trolls.

    Rom_4:2  For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.  

    So, would you consider yourself greater than the Thief on the Cross, who died that day and was with Jesus Christ immediately, just as Christ promised? And this without learning the handshakes, living the good Mormon life, or being baptized by “one with authority.” 

    What about Cornelius and his family? Who all received the Holy Spirit before they were even baptized, contrary to Mormon doctrine? And the Catholics, might as well throw them in, though at least they don’t believe in the plurality of gods. 

    And do you believe that you, as a Mormon, have special powers? It is the Holy Spirit who performed those miracles. It is the Holy Spirit that casts off devils, who is fully God, and not just the third member of a Heavenly Qurum. 

    We aren’t talking about a cessation of doing good works. Not at all! Even Paul responded to that claim as well: 

    Rom 3:5-28  But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)  (6)  God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?  (7)  For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?  (8)  And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.  (9)  What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;  (10)  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:  (11)  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  (12)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.  (13)  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:  (14)  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:  (15)  Their feet are swift to shed blood:  (16)  Destruction and misery are in their ways:  (17)  And the way of peace have they not known:  (18)  There is no fear of God before their eyes.  (19)  Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  (20)  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  (21)  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;  (22)  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:  (23)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  (24)  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  (25)  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  (26)  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  (27)  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.  (28)  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

    Actually, the LDS has no official position on the Book of Abraham. The Mormon apologetics consist primarily of denying that Smith actually translated them, or that there are huge portions of the Papyri missing. Meanwhile, the LDS website states The Book of Abraham is a TRANSLATION and even has picture drawings of the Papyri that the Egyptologists both reviewed and debunked. Mormon apologetics is about as reliable as Scientologist Apologetics. They’re similar in belief, after all. You can choose to care or not to care, but it doesn’t change reality. Mormonism is a false religion and has been proven to be, and in more ways than just this one.

    Give it a rest Ricardo, you are beginning to be a fool.  You don’t have to agree with Glenn and his religion, he isn’t going to be bothered by that, I’ve heard him many times say he doesn’t care what religion you are, just be a good whatever you are.  Let it go, your fight with the LDS religion is totally one sided, they aren’t going to pick a fight over what you believe so why pick on their belief.  Their belief is not hurting you but your attitude is hurting you. Let it go , does all of this back and forth really make you a better person?  No.

     You are a very contentious person, Ricardo. Why you are so eager to tear down my faith, I cannot understand. I don’t believe I ever said that I was going to defend Mormonism in a discussion with you. So don’t go patting yourself on the back. I think I’ve made it perfectly clear that I don’t intend to argue with a contentious person such as yourself, who will never go away conceding anything. That doesn’t mean that I couldn’t do that or that my testimony is merely a facade; it just means that I think it would be absolutely pointless talking to you. Again, go somewhere else to fulfill your desire for contentiousness. I do not have the patience for talking to you, which is why I will make an end of doing so starting… now.

    Congrats on the baptism of your son, what a wonderful step he has taken, my oldest granddaughter will be baptized this June and I am very excited for her. 

    I agree with you, I feel we’ve wasted four years, and afraid of wasting another 4 years. I am a 47 year old single mother of 4 and grandmother of 3. I put myself through school to provide for my family, which I still do, and survived the threat of cancer. If I can drag myself out of financial and medical woes, then those who feel they are entitled to a free ride, they can also put themselves through school and earn a living as well. Living doesn’t come without bumps in the road, you just have to learn to overcome them in a more positive way and  make the best of things. My children and I went without electricity, and water because of the struggles. But we have so far made it out on our own two feet. Everyone of my children has pursued their college educations and are some are still working to reach the goal of bachelor’s degree, some even being parents and working part time, some working two jobs. If there was one thing I am proud to have taught my children, it was that education is important, and so is self reliance. 

    My parents, who are still living, are both immigrants to the United States and children of the great depression. My father being from Canada, and my mother from Sweden. So many things have changed and not for the better. My parents paid for their medical exams that were required before becoming citizens, they were also required to pay for their own x-rays to rule out the possibility of having tuberculosis. (A friend of mine is an RN and has witnessed many illegal aliens coming into the ER with diseases that would have denied them entry into the US).  No one gave my mother the citizenship exam in her native language of Swedish. No one interpreted it for her. She had to learn to speak, read and understand English in order to take the US Citizenship exam. Now, illegal aliens, are treated with kid gloves.

    Actually, that’s from James, but the context is between men and men. That is, how can someone claim to be a Christian and yet have no fruit to show for it. Christ is clear, as are the Apostles, that works play no part in salvation. It is something between God and the man directly, and not from works or any seeming lack thereof.

    Interesting you find it offensive that I quote Mormon leaders preaching Mormon ideas, and then quoting from the Bible exactly what it says. If the two were not utterly contrary one to another, I’d be confused at what YOUR problem is. You can believe that God lives on planet Kolob and has celestial sex with his harem of wives. You can believe that Muhammad is a prophet and that God commanded men to kill Jews. You can believe in Xenu and the body Thetans. But, it doesn’t make what you believe true or automatically worthy of respect. I shall refer you to the Apostle Paul with what my “beef” with Mormonism is: 

    Gal 1:6-9  I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:  (7)  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.  (8)  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  (9)  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    @Ricardo It is definitely by grace that we are saved. And Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. I understand why you use those quotes, just putting the references into Google bring up all sorts of anti-Mormon sites. I would be quite confused were i in your position. Understanding these quotes requires context which you don’t, of course i am assuming, have. It is Only by grace that we are saved. http://www.fairlds.org/authors/tvedtnes-john/salvation-by-grace-alone Note this is not a church owned website but the article has very good points. Simply put nothing in this life that we could do will ever be enough to pay the Savior back for his sacrifice on our behalf. In this we are all equal under the law. However if you simply stop there you ignore what Christ taught us in both word and deed. You can not take one verse and ignore how the rest of the scriptures show the layers of doctrine that exist. Christ himself fulfilled the law of baptism commanding us to also be baptized or we could not enter the kingdom of heaven. Is this not a work that we take by faith? We are debtors who can never fully repay our Lord but He expects us to try, to show him we love him, that we have faith in him, and that we will obey him. So when a LDS person says works they are not ignoring Grace but adding that the Lord requires us to Obey his commandments.

    Secondly the other quote was not incorrect but not complete and very easy to be misleading. All LDS members know that Christ is the way to salvation, the man speaking in this was speaking to other men that understood that principle. They also understood that the Lord has put servants on this earth called Prophets. These men are responsible for the flocks that the Lord has set them in charge. The easiest way i can explain it that definitely doesn’t do it justice is like saying that Christ is our boss, and Prophets are like supervisors. In this example there is still only one Boss and he is ultimately still and will always be the man in charge the one we go through, the supervisors (Prophets) he has set are still under him in the same position we are are in, but they fulfill a role as his mouth piece, as his witness, and as his Priesthood authority on the earth at any given time. That authority can be used as a testimony against or for a person or people, in a way it is a judgement but not the ultimate judgement. In Luke 9:5 Told his disciples to shake off the dust from there feet as a testimony against those who would not receive them. This is pretty much what that quote is talking about, not that Joseph Smith is there savior but in authority above them as the Lord’s servant. Not a quick subject but definitely not what you think it means.
    As far as The Seer, The Seer was publicly disowned and rejected by the First
    Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve in 1865. Despite any truths that it may contain, it cannot be relied upon
    as an accurate reflection of LDS doctrine.
    As far as the Gods issue, LDS believe that the Godhead are separate distinct individuals, I am not gonna argue about that issue. I will however bring up a few scriptures for you to think about. 
    Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
    Philippians 2:6 Who(Christ), being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
     2 The same was in the beginning with God.John 10: 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
     33 The
    Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for
    blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
     34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?1st Corinthians 8: 4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
     5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
     6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.Romans 8 14-18 Joint Heirs with Christ; Acts 17:28-29 we are offspring of God; Matthew 5:5:48 We are commanded to be perfect like God; Revelations 3:21 & 5:12-13; Revelations 21:7 Those that overcome will inherit all that is God’sFun verses and notice there all from the Bible, Notice that Having one God does not exclude the existence of others only the worship of others. Even Christ thought it not Robbery yet he worshiped God the Father as his one and only God doing not his will but his Father’s. As John said Christ was with God and at the same time was God. He had the power to create this earth with his Father. It is a line of Authority: God the Father,-> Jesus Christ,-> us. John 14:6 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.I am not offended by my Church Leaders or by the Bible, I believe they both fit together. Especially if you include all of the bible instead of cherry picking.

    “It is only by grace that we are saved”… this is not what your link even claimed. It actually argues that grace without works is dead. It only states that one must believe, otherwise your good works will not save you. It states repeatedly that we must “endure unto the end,” and that you are saved by grace after “all that we can do.” It also claims baptism is necessary for salvation, as well as following the laws and the commandments. It even distorted Jesus’ discussion with the rich young man. Jesus tells the man to give up all that he had and follow him if he would be perfect. Your website does not mention that the young man walked away, to which Jesus declared that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to be saved. And the apostles, surprised, asked “Who then can be saved?” And Christ replied, ‘With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Certainly, Christ teaches personal righteousness. He also says, “Why callest thou me good? Only God is good.” He also said: 

    Joh 6:28-29  Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?  (29)  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 

    Only the Mormon fantasizes that his righteousness is something other than a filthy rag. If the rich young man couldn’t enter heaven, despite following God and the commandments all his life, why would the Mormon be saved, who even celebrates materialism as a sign of God’s good graces towards him? It is not a matter of not trying to be good or not being good… it is a matter of an impossibility, as Christ stated Himself, for man to ever be considered “good.” And this is why salvation can never be allotted due to merit, because no Mormon will ever be able to do “all that he can” and ascend to the highest level to become a polygamous god. He will always fall short. His righteousness will always be a dung heap. He will never have room to boast of his superiority over any other, because the law has shown that we are all under sin and have fallen short of the Kingdom of heaven. Of course, this isn’t a huge problem for the Mormon, since they believe in lesser levels of heaven anyway. Everyone is getting in to heaven, save for a small minority of the really evil who will be sent to outer darkness,  but works will determine if you get to go to the highest heaven or to one of the lower levels. I wonder if Hitler will enter the Celestial heaven? After all, he was offered Mormon baptism and sealed to his wife by the LDS. 

    I’ll also address the Baptism and Holy Spirit claims. The Thief on the cross was in paradise with Jesus Christ the moment he passed. He was not baptized, did not learn any secret handshakes, and never waited in spirit prison for some Mormon to be baptized in his name so that he may exit. Another example: Cornelius and his family. They were filled with the Holy Spirit before they were even baptized! So the LDS has all these laws and formulas that the Bible utterly ignores, and then they pretend that their absurd beliefs can be defended by the Bible! 

    Regarding the deity of man. The religion of the Bible is and always has been a monotheistic religion. The quote from Pslams continues with: “…But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” It is not that those men who would die are gods, or gods in embyro, as the Mormons like to believe. They are magistrates who are clothed in divine authority as sanctioned by God’s commandments. Christ’s argument is one of “How much more than?” His claim to being God as the exalted Messiah is even greater than the mere magistrates who stood as representatives of God.  

    The scripture is clear, and cannot be broken: 

    Isa_44:8  Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. 

    And yet, the Mormons imagine that the “Godhead” is a heavenly stake Presidency, with 3 different “Gods” working together, and that they themselves shall ascend to the Celestial and become the “only God” of their own planets.

    By the way, if you couldn’t defend Mormonism in the first place

    I didn’t say that I couldn’t, I just said that I wouldn’t waste my time trying to convince you that you’re wrong. Jesus Himself could appear to you in person and tell you that you’re wrong about the Mormons and you wouldn’t listen.

    Your defense is your testimony

    Where did I say that? You can’t quote me as saying such because I didn’t say anything like that. Here’s what I said (slightly altered to be more clear):

    I think I’ve made it perfectly clear that I don’t intend to argue with a
    contentious person such as yourself, who will never go away conceding anything. That doesn’t mean that I couldn’t [invalidate your claims about the Book of Abraham] or that my testimony
    is merely a facade; it just means that I think it would be
    absolutely pointless talking to you.

    Yet here I am trying to educate you on the value of reading what people actually say. But I digress.

    This is true, and yet you believe something as shallow as a feeling in your chest as confirmation of anything?

    That, and I’ve spent a fair amount of time doing my homework. But, hey, maybe if you tell me to “open my eyes” with a little more self-righteousness I’ll be convinced. That last sentence was sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell.

    and there is nothing that can defend against the fact that Egyptologists
    confirmed the Book of Abraham is a fraud through direct translation of
    Smith’s original papyri.

    Again, absolutely there is. Again, I’m not going to waste my time trying to convince you that you’re wrong. That would be an exercise in futility. There are plenty of Mormons on the internet willing to put up with you (go find some). I’m not one of them. Now, stop putting words in my mouth. Work on your reading comprehension skills. Finally, don’t be so angry and hostile. That way, you won’t get reactions like mine. I am done talking with you. For reals.

    All this meaningless prattle, and yet your religion is still provably a false cult. After you explain to me why the original papyri that Smith translated into the Book of Abraham is actually taken from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, maybe you can show me where the Mormons are on the Moon and the surface of the sun (As your Living Prophet (now dead) #2 asserted). And then maybe you can find me all the numerous cities, war horses, elephants, and semetic indians all went to. There is no evidence for any of it, and yet you vainly proclaim that Jesus Himself couldn’t convince me of Mormonism! You are projecting! Your religion is based on a house of cards, and if you do not come out of it, you’ll wind up in the same pit as Old Joey Smith!

    Mormonism is a false religion?  How so?  They, like EVERY OTHER Christian sect out there, believe that we are saved THROUGH CHRIST.  They, like EVERY OTHER Christian sect, accept Christ as their personal savior.  If that makes Mormonism a false religion, than that means ALL Christian sects are false.  If that’s the case you’re trying to make, than just go away.

    Again i say that by grace we are said through faith in the Lord. Because we can never repay him it is only by his mercy that we have salvation. This does not contradict with “Faith without works is dead”. I must confess that i didn’t really expect you to see what you were unwilling to see, just as i didn’t expect such a spirit of anger, contempt, and hatred be returned. You actions remind me of the pharisees, they were so focused on the law of Moses that when the Lord came to show them a greater law they mocked him, and set to trap him in his words. They did not even try to see what he was showing them. Now I am not saying in any way that I am the Lord, what i am saying is that your actions remind me of there actions anger, contempt, and hate.

    Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    I hope one day you will strive to look beneath the surface past your reflection, and see what is ingrained in almost every verse of the scriptures. I hope that instead of choosing to pick and choose and twist the scriptures to your view you will look to see how they work together. I hope this obsession of yours doesn’t bring greater hatred into your heart.
