The Real Story of Polygamist Warren Jeffs and Elizabeth Smart Kidnapping

(Galatians 1:6-12)


The real story of polygamist Warren Jeffs that also explains the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and rape and exposes the Mormon cult! For nearly 9 years now I have warned the readers of the Daily Devotional and those who watch the Liveprayer TV program about the Mormon CULT. I can tell you that the greatest attacks I receive personally and on the Liveprayer internet infrastructure occur when I expose the lies of this cult. I often wonder why other powerful, national ministries who even operate in the comfort and safety of the Christian media world refuse to take on this lie from satan and warn people about the Mormon cult. It is a lie from the pits of hell leading millions of souls to eternal damnation!

The Mormons are the most deceptive cult of all since they have purposely tried to masquerade as "just another Christian church" by using the Bible, the names of "Jesus" and "God" and words and phrases common to the Christian faith. However, do not be deceived. The "jesus" and "god" of the cult dreamed up out of the evil and rebellious heart of that murdering pedophile Joey Smith are NOT the Jesus and God of the Bible! The recent story of polygamist Warren Jeffs is the perfect opportunity to once again expose this lie from hell and tell you the REAL story of Jeffs you will not hear in any news stories because they are afraid to take on this powerful (by the world's standards) and well-financed cult!

Jeffs was the head of a small group known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). His group had apx. 10,000 followers. The Mormon cult, headquartered in Salt Lake City has worldwide holdings of billions of dollars. Included in those holdings are TV stations, radio stations, and newspapers, so they have the ability to use the secular media in a major way to help further the cause of their cult. Immediately when the Jeffs case broke, the Mormon cult's media machine went to work to distance themselves from this man. While the FLDS is not part of the main cult out of Salt Lake, please do not be deceived. The theology and teachings of the FLDS headed by Jeffs comes from one place...the perverted theology of Joey Smith which is followed by Mormon cult members worldwide!

Polygamy was a hallmark of Smith's cult from the beginning. His false theology teaches that after they die, men will have many wives in "heaven." As the cult has gone mainstream in the past 50 years, they realized that they would have to distance themselves from their polygamists' beliefs since polygamy was illegal. So the headquarters in Salt Lake City changed this part of Smith's warped theology and took a public stand against the practice of polygamy. While that became the public position of the Mormon cult, the privately held beliefs of Mormons worldwide is that polygamy is an acceptable practice.

This public stand against the practice of polygamy by the Mormon cult is what gave rise to groups like the FLDS. Please, again, don't be fooled. Jeffs' group is one of literally hundreds just like it. Unless you live in or are familiar with Arizona, Utah, Idaho, parts of Western Canada, you have no clue how widespread and common place the practice of polygamy is in that part of our country. The only time we hear about it is when one of these men who follow the teachings of Smith are prosecuted for it, but it is very widespread throughout that part of our nation. People often ask why they don't prosecute everyone who practices polygamy since it is illegal. That answer is simple. There are so many who practice polygamy there aren't enough jails to hold them all!

Let me take a moment to remind you of another famous story out of Utah from June of 2002. That was when 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her home in a story that riveted the nation. What made the Smart story so memorable was that 9 months later, in March of 2003, she was found alive and returned to her family. People were amazed that this story had such a happy ending. After all, can you remember even one of these national stories where a young girl is missing that didn't end with her being found dead?

I will never forget the Daily Devotional I wrote in March of 2003 that told the real story of the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and subsequent rape. The truth of what I wrote so incensed the people in Salt Lake City, that the official newspaper for the Mormon cult lambasted me, talk radio personality Glenn Beck who is a staunch member of the Mormon cult sent me vicious emails, but when challenged refused to put me on his radio program, and our internet infrastructure was assaulted with major hack and denial of service attacks that were ultimately traced back to...Utah!

Let me give you the bottom line to the Elizabeth Smart story. The truth of her ordeal lies in the Mormon cult. What was never told by the media was that her father was a bishop in the Mormon cult and that her entire family are Mormons. Her father and family deep down knew that there was a very good possibility she was kidnapped by a polygamist who had taken her to be one of his "wives." The fact is, young girls Elizabeth's age in that part of the country are kidnapped to become the wife of a polygamist, this is not as uncommon as you may think. Normally, however, it is from poor families who have no voice. Remember, Ed Smart was a bishop in the Mormon cult and quickly the media machine of the cult mobilized. How do you think his family become so "media savvy" so quickly?

The Smart family knew deep down that chances were very good their daughter was taken by a polygamist, someone who espoused their cult's beliefs. Nine months later it was confirmed they were right. Elizabeth was taken by Brian David Mitchell, a man who the Mormon-controlled media and infrastructure in Salt Lake City wants you to believe is "crazy." Mitchell is a Mormon who was ex-communicated from the main church because of his polygamist beliefs. However, Mitchell did what many polygamist routinely do, and that is kidnap a young girl and make her one of his wives.

I told you in March of 2003, long before any legal proceedings began that Mitchell and his wife who was with him at the time and also charged in the Smart case, Wanda Barzee, that the Mormon-controlled town of Salt Lake would insure there was NEVER a trial and that none of the real truth of what happened would ever be exposed. You never have or ever will hear from Mitchell or Barzee, or Elizabeth for that matter.

The truth is simply that Elizabeth, who was taken against her will, quickly resigned to her new life as one of Mitchell's wives. After all, Mitchell claimed to be a "prophet of god." Elizabeth, having grown up in a Mormon home, understood from her cults' teachings the concept of man becoming god and to revere the "prophet of god." She willingly became Mitchell's "wife," which is why when she was discovered, she denied being who she really was and was more concerned about Mitchell and Barzee than going back to her parents.

You can read the complete Devotional I wrote on the truth behind the Elizabeth Smart story at: www.liveprayer.com/10202003.cfm Just like in the Jeffs story, the real story of Elizabeth Smart lies in understanding the satanic Mormon cult!

The lie of Mormonism that I exposed is not a new problem. Paul himself had to deal with the issue of "cults," those who perverted the Gospel, almost from the very beginning. He spoke of it often in his writings, as in today's anchor verses in his letter to the church at Galatia. This is nothing new. The bottom line to Mormonism and why it is a cult can be boiled down to one core issue. The "jesus" of the Mormons is NOT a deity!!!

Many Mormons will lie to you and say that they believe in the Jesus of the Bible, but they are not telling you the truth. In Mormon theology, their jesus is NOT a deity! If Christ is not God, then his death on the cross was useless, those who believe in Him are still lost in their sin, and we are the most sad of all people. THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE IS GOD!

That is why when you base your beliefs on anything other than the inspired, inerrant Word of God, you are lost! Yes the Mormons use the Bible, but it is NOT their final authority as it is for the Christian. Their authority lies in the writings of that lunatic Joseph Smith (the book of Mormon and the Pearl of Great Price) and their cult's Doctrine and Covenants statement.

I know some people are outraged that I would be "so mean" to call Mormonism a cult. I have no doubt that most in the Mormon cult are fine people, good people, and do great works. But being a good person, doing good works does NOT get you into Heaven. Only faith in Jesus Christ, the Jesus of the Bible, will get you into Heaven. I know for a fact most Morons haven't got a clue what their cult really believes. I am ashamed to say that is the same for too many Christians. The Mormon cult spends tens of millions each year in public relations to portray themselves as "just another Christian church." DO NOT LET THEIR ADS FOOL YOU. They are no more a Christian church than your local mosque is!

While they do a masterful job of using the SECULAR MEDIA to promote their hideous cult to the world, they are also tireless in their efforts to "witness" and share their false beliefs with others. It is too bad Christians, true followers of Christ aren't as zealous. I am always amazed at how bold and tireless those are who promote the lies of satan designed to lead men to hell are, and how timid and lazy the followers of Christ who possess the only words of everlasting life are!

Listen, I have no problem in them believing whatever they want to. God gave each of us the free will to choose what we want to believe in. But it is my responsibility to WARN people not to be taken in by the warm and fuzzy exterior of this cult, and to tell them what Mormons really believe so that they understand going in that a Mormon is NOT a Christian, and when they say the name Jesus, it is NOT the Jesus of the Bible! ***YOUR ETERNAL DESTINATION IS DETERMINED BY WHETHER YOU ACCEPT OR REJECT THE JESUS CHRIST OF THE BIBLE!!!

I love you and care about you so much. I don't mind taking the heat that I do each day for exposing sin and dealing with the tough issues of life. That is what God has called me to do. My goal today is NOT to convert Mormons to Christians, but to WARN people of this cult. I refuse to waste my time getting into theological debates with those who choose to believe in Mormonism. It is a much more productive use of my time to pray for them to come to know the REAL JESUS.

Sadly, you are never going to hear the real story of Warren Jeffs and the Texas cult in the media, just like you never heard the real story of Elizabeth Smart. Even FOX News hasn't got the guts to take on the Mormon cult, and you will never hear anyone expose the Mormon cult on Larry King since his wife is a Mormon. Just like in the Smart story, the Mormon machine, media and legal, that runs that part of the nation will make Jeffs "disappear." The few exposes on polygamy that always come out after one of these episodes will end and the teachings of Joey Smith, including polygamy, will continue to guide the lives of millions who have been deceived by the lies of the Mormon cult.

I would ask that all of those who know the Jesus of the Bible, to take a few moments today and join me in prayer for those who have been raised in and bought into the lies of the cults like the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientology, Christian Science, various New Age groups, and false religions like Islam and Buddhism. This is a very important issue since people who put their faith in these cults and false religions are making choices that will cause them to be cast into everlasting darkness. It was Jesus who said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." There is only ONE GOSPEL, the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST FOUND IN THE BIBLE!!!
