OK guys now comes the real question.
Why are mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ...) superior to any other type of christianity and to all other religions, including atheism?
Just look at a random mormon family, there is perfection only.
Come on guys, y'all now know the only and true religion.
I remember hat they let us use their installations when i was a kid and wanted to play basketball, but we had to attend one of their sessions, I didn't understand shit since I didn't care, but those fuckers wanted to convert me.
I'm married to a Mormon . Their only goal is to convert others. They were all really nice to me until they realized I had no intention of ever joining their church. After I told them I would join if they could explain to me how it took God 2000 years to remember that beer and tea were forbidden not one of them has spoken to me
The marriage is going so so. . I grew up Catholic but I abandoned that by the time I was in 8th grade. She came from a really messed up family. If she grew up in one of those typical Mormon families it would be different. I mostly stayed because I want my kids to have a stable influence in their lives
I used to live in Plano, and they were a goddamned PLAGUE there. They'd hang out at the shopping malls and target anyone who was by themselves.
They were very highly trained pests: anything you said to them, they had a response to parrot back instantly.
There were places I quit going because I knew there would be two dumbasses wearing ties and riding bikes, and I just got sick of it.
She was babtised as a kid but then her family life went to shit. She was a complete slit as a teen. I met her at 19. Still loves sex. She's a swallower and squirts like a fountain. Even from anal. She was stripper hot when I met her. She's porked up over the years but still hassle nice 40dds
They pretty much blackballed us. Even told her brothers and sisters that she was bad. Her Aunt and Uncle are still really friendly but everyone else not so much. I was threatened with the FBI for kidnapping and brainwashing actually.
I used to go out with a Mormon girl, she was one of the kinkiest, horny chicks I've ever been with. Never actually let me fuck her but did everything else, including letting me fuck her ass. She was a smoking hot redhead with a great ass and squirted like a porn star, sadly she moved away a few years ago to marry some Mormon dude and start squeezing out kids. Good times.
because it is an american corporation, and in america if there was ever a widespread catastrophe that affected more than 25% of the country there would be no way to actually begin disaster relief, mormons believe that this is going to happen soon, as in within currently living members lifetimes. so they believe in self sufficiency.
They also believe that Native Americans are descended from the Jews that left after the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and that there are different tiers of heaven and only Mormons go to the top. Other Christians are in tier 2
continuing in this thought, "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" is not a church, it is a corporation. When you are baptized you sign paperwork that allows the church to claim you as a member of the corporation and they used those membership numbers to buy the church out of debt from the US gov't in the late 1890's early 1900's.
It is not a christian (as in believing in Christ) entity. it is a corporate entity and the thing they worship is money and prestige. go anywhere prosperous mormons gather and you'll see how they compete with each other to have the biggest houses and nicest cars.
I lived as a mormon for 21 years and served my mission. I knew that the networking capabilities of being an active member were powerful, but when i decided that i couldn't live with the hypocrisy i left.
You never hear about them raping because the strong family values are good at keeping their daughters quiet.
Also, I would take a more cynical and realistic approach to life than a blissful sheltered one. It's more productive to spiritual growth.
because morality is a grey thing to them, they lie and cheat each other all day long but then go to church on sunday eat the sacrament and absolve themselves of sin. look at the founder of the church, he was a liar, a sex criminal, a con-man, and probably a murderer. look at the prominent members now. Corporate shills, hedge-fund managers worse than any jew, presiding over ponzi schemes and MLM's.
>all other religions
you obviously know nothing of the history of the religion. the govt. made them give up polygamy. up untill that point the mormon church was all about how many 12 year olds an old man could keep in his harem.
Try working for them. Lot of the are Jack Mormons, they only follow the tenents of their faith if they have to, which is normally a mormon superior looking down their nose at the offender...
Isnt it great when the fucking mormons accuse you for brainwashing?
the US Gov't seized their assets and dissolved them as an organization, the then president of the church reorganized it as a corporation and sold future member tithing to the gov't to get it back.
Lets rock this guys!!
>tea were forbidden not one of them has spoken to me
Nice, who got drunk and decided to add that in for the power??
I'm addicted to tea though, so I could see how it would be forbidden. You touch my tea and I'll go to the bottom of the ocean and get real crusty with the land peasants.
the word of wisdom (what you are referring to) is not actually a commandment from god, it is more of a guideline to protect yourself from consuming things en masse that are harmful. Current Membership has elevated this to more than it is.
if you're actually believers in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints then why do you continue to sustain the current church leadership despite it's self serving interests and failure to help those in need? Why don't you take the priesthood authority that has been granted to you and seek to observe God yourself and find out from the horses mouth what you are to do?
We pay a tithe and a fast offering that helps relieve countries that suffer from natural disasters, we have a job force that hires those less fortunate to get them on their feet (rarely they are members of the church), and we have created Welfare Square in Utah. Also while I was on my mission, I mostly built houses for native Indians and create a safe drinking water system.
no you pay a tithe that goes into an investment fund that pays for multibillion dollar malls and housing developments to keep the poor out of SLC and to pay the 'modest' 6 figure stipends of the church leadership.
if you actually believe this, you need to read more. the church leadership just spent millions trading millions of dollars worth of condo's to each other downtown that they couldn't sell.
I don't have to spoon-feed you, get on the Utah corporations website and start looking up properties previously owned by the investment arm of the church (PRI I think) and track down who owns them now. (You should know about 80ish of the names already.)
no they just pushed the drugs and the killing somewhere else so they didn't have to see it on their way into work at the big concrete dick.
i'm not saying it doesn't make sense. i'm just saying that if you truly want to understand what your organization is doing with your tithing, you need to be more discerning about your dominion. The church used to rule by common voice and consent, and i don't know many mormons who would rather build a multibillion dollar mall than help poor people. do you believe that god will excuse your ignorance on the day of judgement?
Actually the presiding corporation is called "The Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints." The one you're referring to was disbanded by the US govt around 1900 and never formally reinstated.
you still haven't answered my question, Why you haven't sought gods presence yourself to find out personally what you should do. The directions are all in the Doctrine and Covenants.
I'd be wasting my breath here to you, but I'll say it anyway. I found the church when I was 18. I prayed, studied, and felt this was the right path. I've seen the power of God and the Priesthood power in my life. Men cited of malaria, another brought back to life, and things only you'd read about in the bible. Miracles!
they aren't miracles. it's man's ability to affect his environment. and even if they are, it isn't the Corporate Church that showed those things to you. it is god, if he exists, and if he does then why don't you want to meet him yourself?
They have a lot to hide. It's all just a ruse, dear summer child. It's all just a ruse.
My sister's best friend in high school came from a Mormon family.
> friend is a crack whore
> her older brother knocked up several chicks and owes a ton of child support
> younger brother is on trial for attempted murder.
you believe... in a time when your calling and election can be made sure. Joseph Smith showed you the way and you come at me with feelings and platitudes. You think God will excuse this kind of laziness?
Where is the revelation that Brigham Young was to be the Prophet?
Since biblical times, the senior apostle takes over the position of the modern day prophet. Therefore Brigham Young was called. The Apostles actually argued about it, as will add Joseph Smith's family. But they followed that doctrine.
umm where is that true? in the ancient church when the prophet died the prophet was dead until a new one was called. Brigham Young was meant to act as president of the church leading with the twelve apostles until Joseph Smith's son was old enough to be called, when that was no longer an option. Brigham Young assumed the mantle of Prophecy without authorization and the LDS Church has been Apostatic ever since.
DO NOT READ THIS LINK IF YOU ARE AN ACTIVE MORMON. I was a Mormon and read this. Now I'm a based athiest. Fuck yeah
>Since biblical times, the senior apostle takes over the position of the modern day prophet. Therefore Brigham Young was called. The Apostles actually argued about it, as will add Joseph Smith's family. But they followed that doctrine.
No doctrine in D&C or Bible or Book or Mormon. Its a fallacy you were taught in sunday school.
If they recanted him, it was because he was a charlatan.
They do have matching genetics. All life on earth has some percentage of matching genetics.
Fuck yeah i do. 40+ years as a Mormon. Mission, temple marriage, elders quorum pres, and all that shit.
So glad to get out. MUCH HAPPIER!!!
Peter took over the church after Christ's death. He was first called to be an apostle. The church runs by a Priesthood power and keys, as did the church of old. Basic Mormon doctrine it's that without that power, authority, and priesthood keys, one cannot run the church. It was never planned by Joseph Smith that the church be run by his lineage. His wife thought different and left the church.
Joseph left no succession plan. Nothing in the D&C about Brigham being prophet. Several splinter groups after Smith died. Check out James Strang and the Strangites.
>house of order my ass...
Honestly. I don't have to keep explaining myself of why I follow this church. I couldn't care less if my fellow anons join or not. The fact of the matter is that I've studied, prayed, and have found the church for me. I truly believe this is God's church. I believe I received my answer from God and that's all that matters to me. Note. I have my church keeping me get through college, my community helps me, and I've always been taught to help others and always be an example. I'll teach my kids the same so they can be good people and let them choose their own path.
peter took over as president of the church not prophet and still look where that ended up with the catholics. not even a generation later and they were Apostatic as well, why do you think the mormons are any better? You still are only showing me the most cursory of religious education. Have you read the D&C? Do you know how the Church of Jesus Christ is actually supposed to be managed?
>grew up in SoCal
>lots of mormons in my town
>K-6 all of them are wearing Choose The Right rings, church every sunday, in bed by 8 etc etc
>middle school everyone is going to seminary or whatever at like 2am
>make pilgrimage to utah every chance they get
>high school a few of them have a drink at a party
>"you guys please don't tell my parents omg i'm going to hell"
>by college at least 30% of them are alcoholics, drug addicts, in rehab, and/or dead
>most of the rest went on mission trips and got married before cranking out like six kids
it's because you are scared that you've actually wasted so much time and effort on something that is actually inconsequential. If God is there he will be as disappointed in you as he will be with the man who buried his masters talent and did not use it to further the kingdom.
