Daily Devotional for Friday October 12, 2007
Evangelical Christian Leaders are More Worried about Money and Power than Souls
(I Corinthians 15:33; James 4:4; 2 Corinthians 6:14-17; 1 Corinthians 5:11)
***GOD'S TIMING!!! I have always told you there are no accidents with God. It was only hours after I finished this critical Devotional for today on how many top evangelical Christians leaders had sold out the cause of Christ to back Mitt Romney, the member of a satanic cult, and the story below about one of those leaders I named hit the wires. In this story is a PDF of the actual letter he sent. I couldn't make these things up in my wildest imagination. THIS IS NO COINCIDENCE! Now more than ever, you need to carefully read this Devotional and then this story. http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/10/mitt-romney-gets-a-boost-from-an-evangelical-supporter/index.html?ex=1192680000&en=3771532d12289b44&ei=5065&partner=MYWAY
Dr. James Dobson and many evangelical Christian leaders are more worried about money and power than souls! I have sat back these past months in utter amazement as I have watched one major evangelical Christian leader after another refuse to denounce Mitt Romney for being part of a satanic cult! I have even been more amazed as I have watched many major evangelical Christian leaders actually endorse this cult members bid to become the next President of the United States. Of course the question I kept asking myself was, why? Why would these men who God has raised up as spiritual leaders, men who claim to champion the cause of Christ, have anything to do with a man who has literally pledged his allegiance to satan? I wish there was a better answer as to why these men who by virtue of their position are called to live their lives above reproach and without compromise, but in the end it sadly boils down to two things, MONEY AND POWER!
Dr. James Dobson is the head of the international ministry Focus on the Family. Because of his influence over the years, he has become a major player in the political arena. As a spiritual leader God has raised up in these last days, he should have dealt with Romney's candidacy in the only way a follower of Christ can. That is to clearly state he would never vote for or have anything to do with someone who is the member of a satanic cult but will pray for him to turn from the lies of Mormonism and to faith in the Jesus of the Bible! However, that is not what Dr. Dobson has done. He has danced around the Romney question, refusing to take a stand against his candidacy. He has even kept the door open to support Romney should he win the Republican nomination. What would make a man of God do this? MONEY!
One of the things that makes the Mormon cult so attractive is their dedication to family. They are no doubt big consumers of the family-friendly resources Focus on the Family sells. Did you know that Focus on the Family has formed a political alliance with the Mormon cult? The alliance is called the World Congress of Families (WCOF). It is a United Nations lobbying group STARTED AND FUNDED by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), better known as the Mormon CULT!!! FOF has actually been holding planning committee meetings on their Colorado Springs campus with officials from the WCOF, BYU and other Mormon organizations! This alliance flies in the face of clear Scriptural mandates to not form alliances with the enemies of God. Dobson refuses to speak out on Romney being part of a satanic cult because his ministry is in bed with and makes money off of that satanic cult!!!
There is a price to pay when you take a stand for Christ. If you remember last year Liveprayer had put together a deal with Larry Jones and Feed the Children that conservatively would have brought $1 million a year to the ministry. However, I ended that deal when I learned Jones had been paid to promote the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, giving out there CDs as premiums for people who gave to Feed the Children. If Jones wants to take money from a satanic cult to promote the music of that cult's choir, that is his choice. How can I with any conscience warn people that they will die and go to hell for following the lies of Joseph Smith, and turn around and play a commercial for Feed the Children that promotes the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Is $1 million dollars enough to look the other way knowing souls will die and go to hell?
Dobson is not alone. Jay Sekulow, the high profile Christian attorney and the head of the ACLJ is supporting Romney. He even has family on the Romney for President payroll. The word from over a dozen sources is that Sekulow has sold out Christ to join this satanic cult member because he was promised to be named to the Supreme Court if Romney gets elected. The former head of the Christian Coalition, Ralph Reed has joined the Romney camp. So has the head of a major Christian PR firm, Mark DeMoss. So has Dr. Jack Templeton of the Templeton Foundation. Why? Why would men of God who know Jesus as their Savior, who believe the Bible to be God's Word and Truth, align themselves with the member of a satanic cult? Why would they become Judas and sell out Jesus? For the hope of having access to the power of the Presidency should Romney get elected. Sadly, these men of God are selling out the Lord for the hope of a few minutes of earthly power.
I was shocked this past May when the national controversy arose over my speaking out on Romney for being part of a satanic cult. When it started, I was wondering where were my brothers and sisters in the ministry? Why weren't they coming to my defenses and acknowledge that the beliefs of the Mormon cult are totally inconsistent with Biblical Christianity? Worse yet, why was I being attacked by fellow Christians for speaking out against this satanically inspired cult? It was during that period of time I became aware that most national Christian leaders didn't have the guts to call this cult what they were for fear of being labeled as "intolerant," "hateful," and a host of other names, since many national Christian ministries and organizations have a percentage of Mormon cult members contributing to them! It was also during that period of time I realized most Christians thought a Mormon was a Christian too!!!
When national Christian leaders and most pastors are too afraid to speak out against this cult, it is no wonder why the vast majority of Christians are totally ignorant about what this cult believes. In addition, they have been brainwashed by the masterful PR efforts of the Mormon cult to have people believe they are Christians. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! Mitt Romney is no more a Christian the Osama Bin Laden is! Romney, like all members of his satanic cult, is a LIAR! He goes out on the campaign trail and talks about his belief in God, Jesus, and the Bible, and that he is just like any other Christian. Romney has been very clever and calculating in perpetuating the lie that he is a "Christian" by attracting mainline evangelical figures like Sekulow, Reed, DeMoss, Templeton and many others to support his candidacy. He has correctly calculated that the theologically ignorant and politically correct secular media will never have the guts to challenge him on what he refers to as "his faith" or "his church."
Here are just a few of the theological issues that makes the satanic Mormon cult totally inconsistent with Biblical Christianity and why a Mormon is no more a Christian than a Muslim is. These are the things the lying Mr. Romney won't tell you, so I will. The god of the Mormon cult is NOT the God of the Bible. Their "god" is named Elohim and was once a man like you and I who came from another planet. Mormon theology teaches that men can eventually become a god and have their own planet. Romney, as a member of this cult, believes that he too will one day become a god. When he talks about "god," he is talking about this fictitious god of Mormonism and NOT the God of the Bible!
This holds true for Jesus. The jesus of Mormon theology is not God incarnate as the Bible teaches. The Mormon jesus was not supernaturally conceived by the Holy Ghost, but the natural offspring of their "god" Elohim who had sex with Mary, meaning he is a created being no different than you and I. Mormons also teach that their jesus had several wives and children, again, in compete contradiction to what the Bible teaches. The jesus of Romney and the Mormon cult is also the brother of Lucifer and will return not to the Mt. Of Olives as the Bible teaches, but to Independence, Missouri to set up his earthly Kingdom. When Romney talks about "jesus," he is NOT talking about the true Jesus of the Bible!
*What Jesus you put your faith in is so critical, since this is why anyone who puts their faith in the imaginary jesus of Joseph Smith and the satanic Mormon cult will die in their sins and their souls burn forever in the flames of hell!
What about the Bible and true Christian churches? Mormons love to use the Bible and quote from the Bible to support their deception that they are Christians. The trademark of all cults and false religions, even those who use the Bible, is that it is NOT their final authority. In the Mormon cult, their authority does not come from the Bible which they view as incomplete and not reliable, but the writings of Smith, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price, and the Doctrine and Covenants. These are the writings that form the false theology of this cult. Romney and all Mormons believe that non-Mormons are "abominations." While they don't have the guts the Muslims do to publicly call a non-Muslim an infidel who should be put to death, a Mormon views a Biblical Christian as part of a "false religion" and void of all authority. Mitt Romney believes a Bible-believing Christian, the very people he is courting so hard, are an abomination!
Like in all cults, the average member hasn't got a clue what their cult really believes. You only get to know everything after you have proven yourself to be a loyal and worthy member of the cult. That is true in the Mormon cult as well. Most Mormons go to their "church," sing many of the same hymns they sing at the Baptist church down the road, give their tithe, read a few passages out of the Bible, hear a message about being a "good person," and go home. It is only when you get to become a "temple Mormon" that you really learn all of the deep, dark, beliefs of Mormonism. The Mormon temple rituals are actually little more than the temple rituals Smith copied from another cult, Freemasonry! Smith who was involved in the Masonic cult, simply copied and incorporated their chants, handshakes, and ceremonies when he started the Mormon cult. These are the same chants, handshakes, and ceremonies Romney participated in when he took his oath to the Mormon cult above anything else, INCLUDING THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND CONSTITUTION!
The average person has no idea that the ultimate goal of the Mormon cult is to establish a theocracy here in the United States. Joseph Smith, the cult's founder actually ran for the Presidency. So did Romney's father. This cult has the very real goal of establishing the "Kingdom of God," which means advancing the physical and earthly organization of the multi-billion dollar Mormon cult. There is a special room in the Mormon Temple located in Washington, DC that has been prepared and in place for over 30 years, which will be the seat of power for the Mormon-led government which will supplant our current government. This was the vision Smith laid out less than 200 years ago, and Mitt Romney and those in the hierarchy and leadership of the Mormon cult see this as the time for that vision to become fulfilled!
I love you and care about you so much. Dr. Dobson, Sekulow, and any other Christian who backs Romney should be ashamed of themselves for selling out Christ for a few dollars and/or moments of earthly political power. The fact is those who follow the lies of Smith and the Mormon cult will die and go to hell. I have done my best in a limited amount of time to give you a brief overview of the false and satanic beliefs of the Mormon cult. I have just barely scratched the surface, but just in what I have shared with you today, NOBODY in their right mind could ever believe that a Mormon is a Christian. When you study Mormon theology and understand the wild beliefs of Smith and this cult, you need faith greater than I will ever hope to have to believe what they do. There is no logic to it and there is absolutely nothing they believe that has any basis in realty or can be proven. The mythical gold tablets Smith said he found . Men who become gods and have their own planet where they have many wives and create "spirit babies." It all makes Star Trek look believable!
The Mormon cult shares some of the same scientific fantasies of the Scientology cult dreamed up by that science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. It also has some elements of the false religion of Islam in that they believe all non-Mormons are an abomination and they will one day rule the earth. As I shared earlier, they have also taken some of the dark, satanic rituals of the Masonic cult and incorporated them into their temple ceremonies. Listen, Mitt Romney and those in this cult can believe whatever they want. God gave us free will, and men who live in rebellion to God since the very beginning have dreamed up the wildest and most ridiculous things, and sadly people who were spiritually void chose to believe their lies and will be lost for all eternity because of it. My main point is that they be honest and truthful about what they believe. The danger of Mormonism is that they are deceptive (just look at their name, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) and will lie without conscience just like the father of lies, satan (John 8:44), to get people to join their cult.
Christian leaders and pastors have to be responsible enough to tell people what the Mormon cult really believes. They can't simply give Romney a pass when he talks about "his faith" and "his church." They need to have the guts to tell people what "his faith and church" really believe and challenge him when he uses words like God, Jesus, and the Bible. They don't have to take my word for it. There is a wealth of information easily accessible out there by thousands of people who were once part of this cult. There is 100% proof and documentation of all that this cult believes. When you challenge a Mormon on their beliefs, they will flat out lie to you. In a recent debate with Mormon apologist Scott Gordon on the Alan Colmes radio program, I addressed many of the issues I have talked about today, plus things like their belief that you can pray for someone who is dead to be saved, their belief black people have been cursed, and each time he flat out LIED about what they really believe.
So I am calling today for Dr. Dobson and all Christian leaders and pastors to once and for all go on the record and denounce the candidacy of Mitt Romney for the simple fact they will not be part of electing the member of a satanic cult whose influence as the President of the United States will cause many people to seek out and join the Mormon cult, resulting in them dying and burning in hell for all eternity. This is not about Mitt Romney being the President, this is about the eternal souls of men who will end up following the lies of Joseph Smith and the Mormon cult and perish for all eternity. I am also calling on Mitt Romany to stop lying and deceiving people that he believes in God, Jesus, and the Bible, and tell people the god he believes in used to be a human being who evolved into his status as a god as he plans to one day, that his jesus is not deity but a created being who can't save your soul, and the Bible is imperfect and his final authority are the writings of Joseph Smith.
"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel- which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned! Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ. Paul Called by God I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ." Galatians 1:6-12
