The one question I always put to my Mormon missionaries is this. If you were to die today, where would you go? They believe in 3 heavens, but would not dare venture tell you specifically where they would end up. They don't know where they stand. Rather, they say if I have followed all the commandments and church sacraments, then they would go to the 1st heaven. If not, then to the second. I ask well have you followed and not forsaken all the commandments and sacraments? The song and dance gets interesting at that point.

You are incorrect on 2 areas. The original manuscript of the Book of Mormon is suppose to be the golden plates, and no you don't have them. Also there has been over 3,000 changes made in the Book of Mormon over the years. Some of those changes include changing the actual meaning of the verses.
Nor do they have the magical spectacles used to interpret them.

Ahhh not. You should read some actual history just suggesting. See, after the death of Jesus and the apostles it wouldn't be till the 3rd century when the NT would begin to actually take form of what we read today. But the first Bible wasn't printed till the fourteenth century by the church of Rome.
Everything you read to know about Jesus came through that early church. So that church is your mother church all the way around. Understand?
You're so dishonest. The letters of Paul and the gospels were still available to the church from the time they were first written. They weren't just put together in one book. And you wonder why no one takes you seriously. You lie like a good Mormon though.

Keep guessing.
Don't have to guess. You told us you were excommunicated by the church. You bragged about learning Mormonism while taking your children to the meetings. And from your thousands of post here in defense of the perverted church, it's clear you've brought the BS hook, line and sinker. You would be LDS if they let you. But you have some great "SIN" that stops your rebaptism.

NoMo is guessing your gay. I think you're alcoholic. You sure show that type of logic sometimes. Maybe you're a gay alcoholic. Who knows? Who cares? Not me, not really. Whatever the problem, it's made you pathetic.

1. He is the one making worthiness an issue.
1a. Wrong. I made worthiness an issue with just you because you claim you're a kind loving caring Christian. The Christian that said he'd commit murder of a dead guy. The Christian who constantly finds it a good thing to think of the vilest, foulest things to say to others to put them down etc. Those are things making up your true self proved worthiness.
I said you made worthiness an issue, you call me wrong and start justifying why you made it an issue. Do you read what you write? While calling me wrong, you go on to prove my statement was correct all along. LOL!!!

Isn't it sad..that a persons sexual preference or an addiction gets them kicked out if the Mormon church? Complete with a kangaroo court?? It's like the complete opposite if Jesus.

Oh...you really should re- baptize(or whatever it's called) yourself. Anyone who totally adore/believe/absorbs their voodoo as much as you do deserves a second chance..and you have certainly shown your penance on topix. show the local bishop all your postings!!!
Surely he would let someone as loyal as you back in..can you do the 10%? If you can't, it's ok, you can go still enjoy one of the lessor heavens.
That's the thing about missionaries..if you like what they are selling, it's cooI. If they are selling a scam and stalking you, it's creepy.
You are on a roll today, sister! ;^)

2a. You'll never use my standards or you would have to change the entire present makeup of your present dark, filthy, vileness you love to bring out to others.
What? I should be more like you?

"PS...if you represent any Christians that don't want me, I thank you for your rejection from the bottom of my *ss...lol...*amm you can be so down right pathetic."

Maybe he'll rejoin when the LDS church gets another "revelation" that will allow gays equal rights.

3. Stop being a hypocrite, he can't shut up about my relationship with God and speculating if I'm a real Christian or not.
3a. I don't speculate. I know what a real Christian is and I know what one isn't. And among other things they refrian from a real Christian refrains from speaking ill of others, doesn't wish to murder a dead guy, doesn't use homosexual slurs against others, doesn't think of things to say to hopefully cause emotional harm and distress to others etc all of which you have done and still do.
4. If he was taking his kids to the LDS church and didn't get rebaptized, it's because he couldn't met the standard. The reason he got kicked out. I wasn't kicked out, I left the church. Could rejoin at anytime, if I wanted too. He can't. What's good for the goose...
4a. Still guessing....
Personally, we find it vile that you would act as if somehow, Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and all their deeds were above reproach. That all they wrote and said should be equated as truth. If you can't wrap your mind around those concepts then you have very little chance to discern good and evil. I hope that if truth is what you seek, that you apply to your ideas the same you would to others.

Sorry Dana, I accidentally posted a reply to the wrong person. I find it amusing that the LDS church claims that they are being ostracized and yet they send missionaries out to tell how wrong all Christianity is.

Did Anti-Mormonism Cost Mitt Romney the 2012 Election?

Not only that, it has made the stage play "Book of Mormon" a huge hit.

Can you imagine..being closeted and then your religion has a revelation? All the torment for nothing? It's really sad..
This will be on Netflix and OWN 10/ 27.
Idk the religion of the family, it really doesn't matter..it's the reality of love shining over ignorance and hate. Everyone should watch this:)

It's probably not the words they hear out of your mouth that sends them away but the smug way you say it. Hence the spirit sends them away from you.
