Mitt Romney the Mormon

Mormon Romney? Yep. Mitt was born to a Mormon family, served a Mormon mission for two and a half years, and converted his wife, Ann, to Mormonism.

Mormons read both the Bible and the books of Joseph Smith. The Bible compiles the recorded histories of the lives and deeds of the Kings of Israel; life stories of prophets of God (who performed miracles, forewarned destruction, and foretold the first and second coming of Jesus); and the testimonies of those who knew Jesus and walked with him.

There are many, many contradictions between Smith's teachings and those of Jesus. First, Jesus died "once and for all" and said he is the only way to Heaven. Smith followers believe that Smith's shed blood is the cause for their resurrection, not the blood of Jesus. Does that not make Jesus a liar, and God, too?

Mitt Romney LDS Mission

MItt Romney served a longer LDS mission than did the standard missionary. Many LDS young men serve a two-year mission trip. Romney went the extra mile and served another half year. Some speculate this is because a missionary qualified as a category exempt from the Vietnam draft. Romney served in the LDS mission field from July, 1966 to February, 1969. However, this accusation seems completely specious. Many young men in those years completed Mormon missions. Additionally, the draft did not end until January 27, 1973. The accusation looks even more ridiculous when it is pointed out that Mitt was enrolled at Stanford 1965-1966. He could have stayed in school those years, and been equally exempt from the draft.

The cities Romney visited during his stay in France were Le Havre, near the coast, and Paris. (Not a bad mission trip. Easy to see why someone would extend, war or no war.)

Is Romney a Mormon?

Is Mitt Romney a Mormon? When asked this question, Mr. Romney obfuscated a bit, he said, "It is the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". He emphasized the Jesus Christ part. Why is this obfuscation, and not clarification? To clarify is to lay out the facts. To obfuscate is to muddy the waters with more information. The additional data seldom clarifies the issue.

When LDS missionaries knock on doors in California, or La Havre, or Paris, they open with tales of Jesus. Many former Mormons complain they were promised Jesus and the Bible. Then, after making commitments, developing new friendships, and learning a new routine, the LDS introduced the doctrine of Joseph Smith.

To learn more about the concrete differences between the Mormon Jesus and the Jesus of the Bible, read this article: Mormonism versus Christianity

Why it is a Good Thing Romney is Mormon

What? How can anyone being Mormon be good? The answer is, a lot of people are now looking into what Mormonism is really all about. Some of these will learn the truth before a young man will come to their door and deceive them. Mormon missionaries are taught to omit bits about Joseph Smith, Lemuria, the (nonexistant) great Jewish colonies that Smith claimed existed in North America, Smith's tale that Jesus visited North America, and other whoppers. Hopefully, many will learn about those lies before a Mormon missionary knocks on the door.

Additionally, many Mormons are going to be subjected to the challenges against Mormonism. Some will actually do some research to find out about the dark history of Mormonism, the long rap sheet of Joseph Smith, the involvement of Smith and Brigham Young in secret societies, and the Satanic element of those societies.

Some will realize Joseph Smith really was a con-artist.

That is why it is good Romney is Mormon. The issue is going to receive attention. People will be set free by learning the truth.

Ex-Lifer Mormons Teach the Strange Tales of Joseph Smith and Mormons

MItt Romney Believes he Will Become a God

One of the teachings of Mormonism is that each Mormon male will resurrect and inhabit his own planet. On that planet, he will be a God.

Romney is Mormon. Therefore, Romney espouses this belief. He expects to become a God of his own world.

This brings us to another of the many contradictions between the Christian Bible and Mormon denominational doctrine. Mormons teach each other they will become Gods, and that there were already many gods before the world was made. Meanwhile, here is what the LORD told to Isaiah:

"I am the LORD, and there is no other. There is no other God besides me."(Isa 45:5a)

"Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I [am] the first, and I [am] the last; and beside me [there is] no God." (Isa 44:6)

This teaching is called "eternal progression." It is not exclusive to Mormons. This doctrine is held by Satanists and Druids.

      If you think 'Mormons' are not Christian, you must think America does not believe in freedom. Both are related so strongly there is no way to imagine them without.

      I am mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint...Which, is the name NOT given by people trying to make us look bad. We accept being called Mormons but certainly don't encourage it.

      Mormons are 100% based on Christ, people who leave and say that is not true are liars. I tend not to call people such things without ever meeting them, but it is true. 100% of them have less than no understanding of the church.

      I tried to make this as 'polite' as possible, but the blatant attack on my beliefs, clearly, with less than no research, hurt my feelings just a little bit.

      Routledge, Read my article: Head to Head, Mormonism vs Christianity. I lay out the differences between the two religions. But, for those who read this chat, I want to point out: Mormons believe in a Jesus who is a "Son of the Morning" and equal to his brother, Satan, who is also a "Son of the Morning."

      I am still waiting to hear a Mormon, any Mormon, reconcile that belief -that Jesus and Satan are brothers, and were so before the earth was populated- with this verse in the Bible:

      "God gave his only begotten son so that whosever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

      So it is not missed, John wrote that Jesus was the ONLY begotten son when he hung on the cross.

      So, then, who is this Mormon Jesus? Who is the brother of Satan they hold up?

      Just using the name Jesus means nothing. The name is used by many, many unique individuals all over the world.

      Everything I wrote is true. You will find many ex-Mormons teaching the same thing I wrote here. Several years ago, the Holy Spirit moved my heart to pray for Mormons. After a week, the local pastor of the LDS actually knocked on my door! He and I spoke and debated for almost two hours. Know why he knocked on my door? He had a little yellow piece of paper with my address on it. He told me he met a young woman who wanted to learn about becoming Mormon. She asked to meet him later- and gave MY address.

      His doctrinal beliefs were almost New Age. I recall he believed in the "one God by many names" doctrine, which teaches that all religions lead to Heaven. They don't. Only KNOWING the one true Son of God- God's Salvation Plan- leads to Heaven.

      The salvation plan of the Creator Yahweh runs through His ONLY begotten Son - Yahshua. There is no other salvation plan, and no nation or denomination has a mastery on that plan. Mormonism is more a cult than the other denominational Christian religions because it has embraced the teacher misguided Joseph Smith as being far more than a prophet and his teachings as being far more than the Bible itself. Good hub for getting people on the path to research. Peace

      A. M. Werner, You are correct. Jesus is the only way. I myself once believed I would go to Heaven automatically because I was Roman Catholic. I have met many former Muslims, Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, atheists, and etcetera.

      All of us were freed from our mental chains when we began to actually read the Bible and to seek out God. Knock and the door will be opened... Seek and you will find...

      Thank you for your post.

      aguasilver: Yes, let us hope and pray that every Mormon will be set free from false teachings. By elevating Smith above Jesus, they have become followers of men, and not followers of God. The Kingdom of God, conversely, is based upon believing God over man.

      It is difficult to believe ANYthing you say on this site when you fail to research from reliable resources. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, aka, "Mormons" absolutely do NOT believe, as you stated, "Smith's shed blood is the cause for their resurrection, not the blood of Jesus." To refute your statement, I quote from the Book of Mormon:

      Alma 21:9 "Now Aaron began to open the scriptures unto them concerning the coming of Christ, and also concerning the resurrection of the dead, and that there could be no redemption for mankind save it were through the death and sufferings of Christ, and the atonement of his blood."

      Mosisah 3:18 "For behold he judgeth, and his judgment is just; and the infant perisheth not that dieth in his infancy; but men drink damnation to their own souls except they humble themselves and become as little children, and believe that salvation was, and is, and is to come, in and through the atoning blood of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent."

      Moroni 10:33 "And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot."

      These are only a FEW of the scriptures we study relating to the atonement of Christ. I hope that you will research what is actually taught through the Church itself and retract the many false statements you have published.

      P.S. You had to have gotten the denomination wrong when you related the story about the Pastor who came to your door with an address on a yellow slip of paper. You said, "His doctrinal beliefs were almost New Age. I recall he believed in the "one God by many names" doctrine, which teaches that all religions lead to Heaven." First, a referral will be turned over to the missionaries, who go about two by two. Second, the leader of a local LDS congregation is not a Pastor, he is a Bishop. Third, the LDS do not teach that all religions lead to heaven.

      Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

      Should you continue to write, I hope that you will keep this scripture in mind:

      Revelation 22:15

      14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

      15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

      tandee:

      So, you think Mormons believe Jesus is sufficient for full atonement of every sin? What about blood atonement for murder? Smith hinted at it, Brigham Young sometimes claimed it is doctrine as well:

      http://www.mrm.org/blood-atonement

      You say and imply that you cannot believe "anything" I say because you believe my statement about this Mormon teaching to be false. However, the Bible, which LDS also pretend is valid (though they really teach it is poorly translated and only for Jews and those of the East... while the Book of Mormon is for North America), says that if a person claims to be a prophet, and fails, he is a liar.

      Joseph Smith claimed he would build a house at Nauvoo and occupy it "forever and ever" and that his descendants would also do so. In fact, Smith died and the house burned to the ground. His descendants moved to Independence, Missouri.

      Translation: FAIL. I didn't need a black hat and magic rock to translate this, either.

      Here is another Mormon doctrine:

      Mormons teach that four elements are necessary for one's salvation: (1) faith, (2) repentance, (3) baptism, and (4) laying on of hands. Mormons believe that one must be baptized by immersion by the Mormon Church in order to be saved. All others will be lost.

      So, if a person does NOT believe in Joseph Smith, can he possibly get into Heaven? If not, does the LDS cult not then teach that without Smith, none can enter Heaven?

      Do you know how many religions were actually started by 32nd degree Freemasons or other Satanists? As far as I can see, all the major religions which teach they are Christian are actually ruled by Satanists.

      I am not a Mormon, but what makes Mormonism less Christian than any of the other denominations in Christianity?

    • Man from Modesto profile image

      Man from Modesto 4 years ago from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California)

      Sword:

      Part of the Satanic agenda is to establish as many false religions as possible. This confuses many (most?) people. They look and see all the different religions. Many of them claim (falsely) that their religion is the ONLY way to go to Heaven.

      The truth is, JESUS alone is God's plan of salvation. Without redemption through God's plan- the blood of Jesus as atonement - no person will ever be found innocent, except for Jesus himself.

      The Satanists also recruit successful people, and people who somehow arrived at power. Those who refuse to join (after they are successful), are killed (e.g. JFK, George S. Patton). They use organizations to bring in the leaders. Some of these orgs are special clubs like Skull & Bones on Ivy League campuses, the Freemasons, and even (yes!) Rotary. At the top, these organizations are run by outright Satanists.

      Some religions started by 33rd degree Freemasons:

      Mormonism (J. Smith and Brigham Young, both 33rd d. Masons)

      Jehovah's Witnesses

      Christian Science

      http://www.lovethetruth.com/false_religion/occult/...

      True religion is loving God above all things, and loving your neighbor as yourself.

      Churchanity, is a mix of preferring to follow men (pastors, priests, imams, etc.) over following our Father in Heaven.

      Fact is, MOST religions are controlled by wolves in sheeps' clothing.

    • SwordofManticorE profile image

      SwordofManticorE 4 years ago from Burlington

      There is no such thing as a true religion, as the law of Love is the greatest law of all. There is more than enough religion for us all to want to hate and kill one another, but never enough to love one another. What troubles me is this hub. According to you, all beliefs outside of yours are wrong, but what makes you so sure yours are right? The bible suffers more from its exponents than it does from its opponents.

      Fact is, ALL religions are contolled by wolves.

      "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James, brother of Jesus

      There is a difference between man-controlled pseudo-religious organizations (like Islam, Buddhism, Baptists, Methodists, catholicism, et al) and truly seeking God.

      The test is this: 1. They love each other. 2. The power of the Kingdom of God is evident (healings, miracles, prophecy), and 3. They pray for their enemies.

      False religions have some or all of these (but there is much more): control, exclusivity (only OUR people go to Heaven), hatred (e.g. 96% of all wars in the world today involve Islam on 1 or both sides), corruption (esp. sexual scandals)... and much more. The road to Hell is wide.

      You mean "ekklesia"? That word is the Greek word for their ruling assembly.

      Fact is, those who belong to Jesus walk in power and authority. Someone told you it means "ritual"? I suspect that person is a defamer of Christianity, or else someone who is just misinformed.

      soooooo...many wrong teachings and conclusions in this article about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Just 1 of 100.... you stated, "First, Jesus died "once and for all" and said he is the only way to Heaven. Smith followers believe that Smith's shed blood is the cause for their resurrection, not the blood of Jesus. Does that not make Jesus a liar, and God, too?" This is wrong and a lie and not at all what the LDS church teaches. Please read the Book of Mormon and then make your decision about this book which is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Mormons believe Jesus is the Savior of the world and the light and way. We do not worship Joseph Smith, but he is the first prophet in the Latter Days..when the Fullness of the gospel was restored to the earth after the truth was broken into pieces as the true apostles of Jesus Christ were put to death after Jesus Died on the cross. Listen..what do you have to lose by reading The Book of Mormon. If it is true..you have just gained more knowledge and Truth about God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is "Another" Testament, a companion to the bible. If it is not..You can say you read the book of mormon as you continue to add comments to forums..hopefully not biased, uneducated forums like this one....and maybe have some ground to stand on.

      jewels: The Mormons do NOT teach all of their doctrines when they knock on the door. They also avoid the kinds of teachings that directly contradict the Bible. Do you read the Bible, or only the Book of Mormon?

      For me, when I began to read the Bible, I got out of the false religion into which I was born (catholicism.) I realized the Word in the Bible was almost entirely different than everything they told me during mass.

      I hope you will also be set free. Do not let any man insert himself between you and God: not me, not a priest, not a pastor, not Moses... nobody.

      The teaching about the blood of Joseph Smith is a Mormon doctrine. Here is an interesting article, with quotes from Brigham Young: http://exmormon.org/d6/drupal/bloodatn

      I can't believe that people don't do research before they make accusations about other people, topics, religions etc

      I am a member of the LDS church and I can't believe what I am reading. Jesus is the Christ and the only way. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ! Juust go to South America, North America, Central America, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga or just ask the Native American Indians. These are all descendants of the people that wrote the book of Mormon. You are defaming their heritage.

      You have not done your homework. So many artefacts in America from these people have been found that go back to Israel. These are all descendants of Lehi who left Israel and sailed to the America's around five hundred years before the coming of Jesus Christ.

      After Jesus Christ was resurrected he also visited the America's and all the lost tribes of the world. These lost tribes when they come back in the last days will also bring their scriptures with them and they will be have other testaments of Jesus Christ.

      Just like the Book of Mormon is about and ancient people who had prophets and apostles and battle between good and evil so will the lost tribes of Israel have their scriptures about their revelation from God.

      Will you also be ignorant and defaming of their prophecies and precious revelation too?

      ZERO artifacts from the people who never existed have been found. None. Nada. Once, Mormon Glenn Beck did a show in which he claimed elephant fossils, etc. have been found. He just lied. Mormons bought up the hills on which the BOM claims the final battle took place... NOTHING there. Their own anthropologists dug and dug... Now, they just keep it guarded so nobody else can dig there and report that there is nothing to be found.
