A Refreshing Message From A Reader

As those of you who read my material know, I have written several articles against the cult of Glenn Beck, and also the cult of secular conservatism. I received this  comment from a reader,  and found it very refreshing:

Prior to reading Therodore’s articles I was a subscriber to GBTV. I wanted to know what Glenn had to say about those who were calling the shots in our nation. Glenn exposed the communists and those connected to the web of lies. BUT, I also knew in the back of my mind that I VERY much disagreed with his biblical theology. After reading Theodore’s articles I had to make a decision. Do I support GBTV for the sake of America or do I choose to support Christ and the truth of the bible? I can no longer, in good conscience, give financial support to GBTV no matter what amount of good for the secular is accomplished. I can no longer justify jeopardizing the souls of the unsuspecting that will hear the heresy of universalism.

I wish more and more people would place Christianity over Beck and the borderline Mormon cult following that surrounds him.

Death To The Beast Of Indifferentism!

By Theodore Shoebat

Oh Christians, do you not know of the plans of the heretics?

How they wish to destroy the Faith through deception, 

through false doctrine, through sophisms? 

My heart breaks at the sight of your indifferentism

because behind those false facades, of ‘tolerance,’

of ‘equality,’ of ‘free thought’ and of ‘liberty’,

  are wolves frothing at the mouth, just waiting 

for the right moment to make martyrs out of you,

and laugh, and mock, and scoff, at the very Faith 

which you care little for. 

Enough with your boastings, that you are tolerant and open minded,

these are but masks to cover your apathy before the sacred.

If you wish not to partake in this duel to the death, this duel of Faith,

then stay silent, and cease your attempt to hinder the fiery ardour of the zealots.

The heretics plan to destroy us,

and connive false friendships and perceptions of peace,

as Cain did before he slew the first martyr.

 

They dream of the days when we are in the midst of their killing fields, 

and they, with cruel smiles, laugh at us,

declare that Christ never saved us, and that the Cross is nothing.

And as they dream this utopia of hell, the indifferentist choose to live in polite fiction,

and they tell the zealots to cease speaking of fighting,

of this eternal war between the Cross and the Crescent,

before the Mark of God and the Mark of the Beast,

between the Bride of Christ and the harlot of the devil,

and little do they know that they,

despite their diplomacy with the enemy,

 are not exempt from this war,

for they do not know, nor do they realize,

that it will also be between those with zeal and those with out,

and in the end a sword will strike the beast of indifferentism

and  the wound will bleed the monster finally to death. 

Mormons Believe That God Had Sex With The Virgin Mary

By Theodore Shoebat

I thought this would be interesting to expose, that Mormonism believes that God the Father begat Christ as human beings beget purely human children. Brigham Young stated that the Father came down to earth and begat, through “natural action”, Christ. This signifies that the LDS, affirms that God had sex with the virgin Mary. Here are several statements from Brigham Young to demonstrate this:

“The man Joseph, the husband of Mary, did not, that we know of, have more than one wife, but Mary the wife of Joseph had another husband. On this account infidels have called the Savior a bastard. This is merely a human opinion upon one of the inscrutable doings of the Almighty. That very babe that was cradled in the manger, was begotten, not by Joseph, the husband of Mary, but by another Being. Do you inquire by whom? He was begotten by God our heavenly Father. This answer may suffice you—you need never inquire more upon that point.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 11, p. 268)

“The Father came down and begat him, the same as we do now…” (The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young, vol. 1, p. 321; February 16, 1849, Salt Lake City)
“I believe the Father came down from heaven, as the Apostles said he did, and begat the Saviour of the world; for he is the only-begotten of the Father, which could not be if the Father did not actuallybeget him in person.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 1, p. 238)

The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood – was begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 8, p. 115)

“God has made His children like Himself to stand erect, and has endowed them with intelligence and power and dominion over all His works, and given them the same attributes which He himself possesses. He created man, as we create our children; for there is no other process of creation in heaven, on the earth, in the earth, or under the earth, or in all the eternities, that is, that were, or that ever will be.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 11, pp. 122-123)

Orson Pratt also explained this belief:

But God having created all men and women, had the most perfect right to do with His own creation, according to His holy will and pleasure: He had a lawful right to overshadow the Virgin Mary in the capacity of a husband, and beget a Son, although she was espoused to another; for the law which He gave to govern men and women was not intended to govern Himself, or to prescribe rules for His own conduct. It was also lawful in Him, after having thus dealt with Mary, to give her to Joseph her espoused husband. Whether God the Father gave Mary to Joseph for time only, or for time and eternity, we are not informed. Inasmuch as God was the first husband to her, it may be that He only gave her to be the wife of Joseph while in the mortal state, and that He intended after the resurrection to again take her as one of his own wives to raise up immortal spirits in eternity.”

The Best Argument Against Mormonism

By Theodore Shoebat

Here is a good argument I use against Mormons (this argument does away with all of the assertions of Mormons and gets right to the point). If the LDS cannot prove that their church can be linked all the way from the Apostles, they have have no argument for the rest of their heretical beliefs.

If the LDS is the true church, then find me a reminiscent church that existed before Joseph Smith. If they say they can’t think of any, or that the true faith was unknown until Joseph Smith, then that means God allowed the world to be in the dark until the 19th century (1800s)

Now, if they are of the learned sort, they may try to use history, and say that the earliest Christians were anti-Trinity, just like the Mormons are today, and that this remnant of true Christianity was eclipsed by the Council of Nicaea.

The problem with this argument is that the so-called “early Christians” that they associate themselves with are the Arians, a group of heretics founded by Arius in the fourth century, who denied the Trinity.

If you would like to learn more on Arianism, how it persecuted the Church, and how it was condemned by the Council, here is my essay on the history of Arianism:

http://shoebat.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Heresy.pdf

It was this very sect that was condemned by the Council of Nicaea. It is for this reason as to why the LDS condemns the Nicene Creed, which was declared to affirm and define the Trinity.

The official Latter Day Saints website has a condemnation of the Council of Nicaea, as the move which prevailed over the so-called “true Christians” which they have fabricated (when in reality it simply anathematized the Arians):

“The collision between the speculative world of Greek philosophy and the simple, literal faith and practice of the earliest Christians produced sharp contentions that threatened to widen political divisions in the fragmenting Roman empire. This led Emperor Constantine to convene the first churchwide council in A.D. 325. The action of this council of Nicaea remains the most important single event after the death of the Apostles in formulating the modern Christian concept of deity. The Nicene Creed erased the idea of the separate being of Father and Son by defining God the Son as being of “one substance with the Father.”

The Mormons are correct when they say that the Arians denied that the Trinity, and that they are doctrinally in agreement, but they are wrong when they identify them as being of the original church, or the Apostolic Church. Arius dissented, and broke away, from the Church.

The Arians were never a part of a pre-existing church, but were merely schismatics. If the Trinity was some how concocted by the Council of Nicaea, then why was Arius excommunicated before the Council? The only explanation is that belief in the Trinity was already in existence and a part of orthodox teaching before the Arian controversy.

The Trinity was taught in the Gospels.

The divinity of Christ was proclaimed by St. Matthew when he wrote that Christ was Emanuel, or God with us:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23)

Christ declared His divinity in the Gospel of John

Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. (John 14: 8-10)
I John 5:7 says:

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Not only does the LDS deny the divinity of Christ, they cannot find any prior sect which resembles them.

The Mormon is then put in a corner, either he has to admit that God kept the world in darkness until the 1800s, or that there was a sect in existence long ago.

But they cannot find any historical reference to these ‘underground’ sects without finding mention of them being heresies which broke away from the original church.
