As you know from scripture, the whole world lieth in the Wicked
one. And, from among those not saved, Satan takes captive those
he wills. He does not take captive those who belong to God through
Jesus Christ. He may sift them, but he does not take them captive.
He can do nothing to the Saints without the permission of God.
As for my sisters, they are not allowed into fellowship with
me according to Second Epistle of John. I am forbidden by God
to bid them Godspeed since they teach the Mormon false Gospel.
It is not that it is for my protection alone but primarily that
they will be "separated", as in a brother turned over
to Satan and shunned. If they are not converted, I will never
see them again. I offer them no encouragement in their evil.
Their blood is not on my hands as I have told the family the
truth and that repeatedly. It is up to God. I pray for them.
The Book of Mormon also states clearly that is has a familiar
spirit "attached" to it. Of course, Smith was a warlock
and a scrier, as his entire family were witches/warlocks.
I also understand about Masonry, yet for God nothing is impossible.
The Gospel is the dunamis of God unto salvation. Since the scripture
says that there are "none righteous, no not one" the
lack of righteousness is inherent, not acquired. That is as David
declared in Psalm 51. Thus, when the Holy spirit shines the light
of the Gospel upon the sinner (Mormon or Hottentot) and quickens
the sinner's human spirit, making it alive to God, it matters
not what his association, he comes out.
Yes, Mormons need to hear the Gospel. And those preaching the
Gospel to Mormons should spend most of their time in prayer,
As far as Mormons not being responsible, they are as responsible
as any sinner according to Romans chapter 1, and are without
excuse. As you well know, most Mormon converts come out of Christian
churches, many having heard the Gospel for years. Nominal Christians
are their largest source of converts, I think. And, they are
no more lost than a nominal Christian. What I am saying is this:
ALL lost persons are deceived by Satan and live in darkness.
The remedy is the same for all. If you think Mormons are difficult,
go to any Indian reservation and begin preaching. Preach to an
association of bankers. or a group of lawyers. Or Chinese collies.
It is all the same.
Folk that do not come to Jesus Christ are deceived, that is true.
By Satan. Consequently, Mormons are not "more" lost
than any other sinners. Irreligious drug addicts are as lost.
They are also witches as the Greek for witchcraft is pharmakeia,
that is to practice occult stuff with dope. Apostate Jews are
as lost. Unitarian Masons are as lost. Shamans are as lost. Certainly
no Mormon is anymore lost than Saul of Tarsus was.
A "conversion" experience needs to conform to Scripture.
I understand that my experience was genuine since it is described
in Romans 8, wherein Paul states, "for ye have not received
the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the Spirit of Adoption,
whereby we cry "Abba", "Father". I also understand
because I immediately understood the difference between worldly
sorrow (and a repentance to be repented of) and godly sorrow,
and the repentance from which there is never any repentance.
I am not described "being" saved at a particular moment,
as that salvation began before the foundation of the world, according
to scripture. I describe the moment in time whereby we came to
know God, or rather, as Paul says, He "knew" us, acknowledged
us, made us aware of His love and salvation. Thus, one can be
saved and know it, contra the Roman Catholics.
By the way, I am not arguing with you. All worship of false gods
is dangerous and exceeding sinful.
Any "praying" or "work" done by Mormons in
the Temples, for the dead, are of no consequence. That is no
more of consequence that their sealings in marriage or plural
marriages. The Mormons are interestingly revealed in that they
so clearly respond to the Garden Temptation and their desire
to become "as God", that is, gods is so obvious. Of
course, the Manifest Sons of God are of the same ilk, and Earle
Paulk's Harvester church organization is likewise. I have to
laugh at my younger sister as she is a Women's Libber and yet
she believes the Mormon garbage which requires the ladies to
be celestial broodmares in the Celestial Stud farm of the husband
god, spinning out those little spirit children by the millions.
Deceived is deceived, is it not?
As to Satan "stealing" your salvation - are you saved
now? You do understand that one is born again once? One does
not have the spirit made alive to God, then killed again, then
made alive to God, then killed again, etc. Either you were not
born again or you were "sifted" for a rather long period.
You do understand that an altar call is not the necessary equivalent
of being born again? I am not arguing but simply stating the
thing. You mention Luther, a favorite. Was Luther born again
during the time that he was a monk, serving the flesh? Yet he
mouthed the name of Jesus Christ repeatedly.
You mention "a curse". In the Bible, God is the only
One who curses. Satan takes "captive" those who do
not belong to Christ. However, Jesus gave Himself a ransom for
us. Thus, by that Satan cannot hold us. He cannot do anything
to us that God does not permit. Thus, a Christian can frequently
tell his spiritual state by seeing if he is hated by unbelievers.
If He was hated, we shall be.
There is the scriptural example of believers formally forsaking
their occult past practices by book burnings and the burning
of occult items. I see nothing in the New Testament whereby prayers
were made to "break" curses, so called generational
curses. The language of the Bible is closer to slave and free,
bondage and freedom, than the other you mention.
I was with the Mormon gang for a week when my mother died. The
Mormon leadership came at me like Agag came to Samuel, "surely
the bitterness of death is past"? I helped my father and
attended the funeral yet I did not participate as did all the
family. My father renewed his pledge to live as a good Mormon
and keep the family together so he could have his own planet
In any case, as I said earlier, I am glad you guys got out. And
I wish you well in the Lord.
