Here is another one.

Quote:
"I tell you, Joseph holds the keys, and none of us can get into the celestial kingdom without passing by him. We have not got rid of him, but he stands there as the sentinel, holding the keys of the kingdom of God.."


- Apostle Orson Hyde, Journal of Discourses, v. 6, p. 154

The Cult of Mormonism can try as hard as they want to deny their history and the reality of their Cult doctrine. And I will continue to make sure that their Cult doctrine is displayed for all to see.

So far the only doctrine they are keeping secret and not denying are the temple ceremonies. The new name, the handshakes, the secret signs and secret tokens. The bakers hats, the green aprons, the veils - all of that they are not yet denying.

Perhaps it is time for me to put that portion of the Mormon Curtain back up again - with all of the pics, the whole wording, the changes and all. Sandra has a great picture of her in Cult clothing including green apron. I do think it's time to show the world that while Mormonism may be trying to deny embarrassing doctrine and belief - they can't hide the ridiculous clothing and ceremonies they perform every day in their secret temples.

Yes, the Freemason cult really ought to be ashamed of themselves too. Shrug.

IMO, it's not the weird ceremonies that make Mormonism "culty." It's the emotional manipulation.

In that case all Holy Spirit religions in this country are cults.

You mean the silly and ridiculous things like Joseph teaching we can become Gods, or polygamy. :wink:

Quote:
So where does Kimball, Snow, and others go wrong? They make the mistake of stating that man will govern their own worlds and be God. This can never happen since we are simply incapable. WE CAN assist God in the creation of worlds and one of those ways is in the organizing of spirit children for those worlds, but this process is driven and directed by God (not exalted man). In fact, this exact process was involved in the formation of this world.


And how is it that tobin is getting it right but not Joseph Smith or all the leaders after him. :eek:

Quote:
I know what feels right and what other Mormons have expressed on this topic that have helped shape my views though.


What? How can this be? You mean you are not asking God on these topics but doing as others are and going with what feels right. Scandalous.

Tobin, I think that one of the big problems is not that the leaders of the church are human, fallible, etc.
It's that, after all we have been told about how they will never lead us astray (not in the lord's program), how can they be so wrong for so long.

And I don't mean speaking to God like many Mormons say it. I often hear that people pray and feel like they should do something that is disastrous. I mean members should learn the truth like Christ taught it - using knowledge, reason, and "true" inspiration from God. After all, the truth should be reasonable and consistent with what we know and fulfilling. Often times Mormons are guilty of believing ridiculous things for no other reason then they felt it was true (or more commonly, their leaders said so).

I like your approach. But it is not what the Church teaches at all. It is not what those who lead would have its members believe. Your approach is certainly not orthodox at all. Most members don't but it. They believe the leaders when they say we won't lead you astray. They believe what comes out of their mouths. So again, what you say is great and I am glad you have found a way to make Mormonism work for you. But to act is if your view and understanding is what the Church really is seems nonsensical to me.

I guess it depends on your view of the Church. I view the Church simply as an association of members that believe similar things.

Now, you might not find my view appealing or sensical. Maybe you feel a Church needs the leaders to define and control what their members believe. I don't think that is true for the Church of God however. I think the members only need God and that the leaders should simply serve and not rule or dictate.

No, no your view is appealing to me. I like it. But I am viewed by the more staunch LDS here as a hypocritical apostate cafeteria NOM like Mormon. I am more like you. Lots I pick and choose from and ignore. I am just saying what you portray is NOT anything at all like what the Church is or what those who control it portray it to be. Most of those in the pews would disagree with your views and mine. That is all I am saying. But when you argue your point you argue it as if it is the predominant view and that it should be or is mostly accepted. That is not the case which is my point.

I agree. It is unfortunately true that there is a leadership cult in the Church. But I think that we are witnessing it in its death throes and it will eventually disappear over time. I don't see much of a future for Mormon, Inc.

There is something to dream and hope for. Death to the leadership cult in Mormonism. A cult of personality that lacks personality.

On that topic, I have become increasingly convinced that Mitt Romney embodies the evils of our times. He is a kind of anti-Christ. I know that sounds extreme, but if ever there was a person who personified the hollow, soulless, unprincipled spirit of American vulture capitalism in its Mormon form, it is Mitt.

It's also not what Joseph taught. If members can come up with their own ideas on what the scriptures and such mean you will just end up with a splintered church. It is really why so many churches including the LDS break apart. It sounds good in theory, but the problem is it is really just their own brains coming up with their own ideas. Tobin keeps avoiding this issue. :wink:

If I ever felt like going back to the church of my youth, that is a problem that is slowly but surely taking care of itself, as the church of my youth essentially erases itself bit by bit as the years go by.

There's precious little temptation even to consider going back, and the church is doing its part to kill off what meager hope yet remains.

Which is more reasonable to believe:

(1) The LDS Church is making substantive doctrinal reforms through anonymous press releases that contradict its official curricula and are directed to a non-Mormon audience;

or

(2) The LDS Church is lying to the public about its teachings in order to appear more like a mainstream Christian church?

I think the Church is doing both. The Church has an established method for changing its doctrine that includes: 1) stop talking about the doctrine, 2) wait for members to forget about it, and 3) if forced to publicly address it, deny that the Church ever taught the doctrine, assert that any statements to the contrary are unwarranted opinion, and/or assert that past teachings about the doctrine were misunderstood, vague, or ambiguous.

I think the Church really is making substantive doctrinal reforms using this process accompanied by a fair bit of lying. Since God no longer speaks to the prophets much, this is how doctrinal changes are done.

LOL Very true. It is a method that does take time to change.

Ne'er a truer word(s) has been spoken. The Mormon church is gradually erasing its "cultiness", and is transforming itself into a Romneyarian version of Christianity. The Mormon church I knew as a child simply doesn't exist these days, and that's ok. The Brighamite Mormon branch is clearly in a full state of apostasy.

What we need is a new prophet. A prophet that receives God's word.

What we need is a Night Lion.

Just kidding, but yeah. I mean I'm not just kidding - really, don't encourage him. ;-)

Awesome picture of the Nightlion.
