Personally, I believe all man made/organized religion is flawed. I am not an atheist. I believe in a higher power. I just don't care to sit in church every Sunday. No one religion is better than another religion. Catholics,Protestants,Mormons. .....etc are all created by man. Bottom line......people cherry pick what they want to believe, or use their interpretation of the bible to hate on or condemn others.

You have no idea of what truth is. Truth to you is to lie ignorantly and with purpose to prove some of the most idiotic pathetically stupid points going. Truth to you is claiming what liars claim is truth. Truth to you is claiming unproved rumours are fact. Truth to you is claiming a very proved fertile guy also did 30 plus females for 3 straight years for a thousand times or more but not explaining how not a single female of those 30 had a child. Yet all his buddies with several wives or more were having no problems impregnating all their wives in the same time period.
You twist nothing back to truth.

Not to come off offensive to you, but you realize if you believe in a higher power, you also have cherry picked from theism to construct your personal beliefs. That makes your beliefs 'man made' even if you haven't established a religion.

if your cult wants to spam the internet, they will regret it..it will totally be their downfall...the more they increase their profile, the more they increase the scrutiny. It's so odd, how they don't get the concept of backlash..what is that about? The blinders are soo obvious and odd, aren't they? The missionaries really have their work cut out for them and judging by their "this isn't the time/place/realm/setting/plane t( they have a plethora of descriptives) answers, it's not going to go very well. It's like watching dogs scrambling around on glossy tile..

I was raised a Mormon. That was a difficult task, trying to be perfect (and Never achieving it). Mormons are focused on their works. That someone is keeping score and they need more points to get into heaven (and have their own world). This belief system almost destroyed me through my own guilt and unworthiness, and I was constantly judged by my fellow Mormons. I was never at peace. It never felt right. I fell so far away from any spirituality...and lost hope and almost lost my life. But God had a plan...and he waited for me to to turn to Him...through the power of the Holy Spirit.(Mormons say holy ghost, its not accurate, a Ghost is Dead. Jesus IS ALIVE)
I was reborn. Through Christ Jesus. My Savior, My Lord. When I asked Him into my heart he made me new, I AM REDEEMED. I AM CHANGED FROM THE INSIDE OUT. I live now to Honor Him, because it fills me with Joy. There is no score keeping for my works now...as I realize that the Price was Paid in FULL for My Sins...GRACE IS A GIFT, YOU CANT EARN IT.
JESUS IS ALIVE AND HIS SPIRIT LIVES IN ME.
NOTHING COMPARES TO HIS LOVE.
I hope that the Mormons will somehow wake up.

I am sorry that is how you felt.

I have been in Wards and it seemed like people were judging me. I felt awkward. I fell away from the Church at a point... then realized that it wasn't the other members making me feel unworthy it was myself... I was judging myself compared to them.

I don't do that anymore. I am me. I do my best and that is all I can do. I know that Heavenly Father sent me here to do MY BEST not somebody else's. Nobody has the ability to drive me away, only me. It took some growing up to realize that.

In my youth I tried many different Church's... none of them were satisfying... none of them answered my questions. Each Church even though it was the same type had different teachings it seemed. I didn't understand that.

What I would like to share with you is that Jesus Christ died for all our sins. EVERYONE'S but not everyone will let him in. I say Holy Ghost all the time... nobody has ever corrected me and said a ghost is dead. I've learned that the people can be wrong but the Church is Jesus Christ' and it is growing strong... and will endure to the end. The people might not know all truths but God does... he watches us... he takes care of us.

Also, I have learned that Ward to Ward people are different. That is an odd concept sometimes to understand... but from Ca to NY there are different cultures and those people attend different wards... not everyone joins the Church with the intent to learn and learn and learn. I'm an analyst... I love to research I love to learn. I have had people tell me incorrectly... and I said wait a minute... and I went and researched for myself and found out the truth. I never through it back in to their face... but I can understand why it's difficult to feel worthy.

Worthiness wasn't something they were taking from me... it was something I had to give to myself. God Bless.

PS. I forgot to mention I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in my late teens... and I have a true testimony of what the gospel is about... what Christ' mission was for... and why I am here. I hope you find that if you haven't... in whatever Church you are in.

It is amazing that you people know how to tie your shoes. You apparently can't use google for anything other than finding facebook, and topix. It amazes me that you guys are allowed to vote.

1. Two religions following the same god arguing is akin to the crazy guys at the window in an asylum arguing about what color the invisible dragon in the courtyard is.

2. None of you have taken the time to research and understand these books that you claim to hold so dear. If you honestly believed any of it, you would find the couple of minutes required to understand the subject matter.

3. The word "Christian" translates as "Christ like", or "Similar to Christ". Going by this definition, you can be a Buddhist Christian, a Muslim Christian, a Wiccan Christian, even an Atheist Christian.

All the infighting that occurs within the halls of the abrahamic religions, simply shows the rest of us that you are picking and choosing what to believe based on your own life choices. This makes all of your beliefs invalid, and implies a massive sense of under education, illiteracy, and self-righteousness. If you honestly tried to be a "Christian" you would understand what the word means.....

You're at best an idiot.

1. The Mormon church does not follow the God of Abraham in any way, shape or form. They only hijack his name.

2. If you had taken the time to read the Bible you would have known 1. So don't begin to think you can tell others what is in it.

3. Your definition of "Christian" is even more ignorant than your understanding of scripture, and even more evidence you haven't read the Bible.

The infighting only shows there is a debate on meaning, and if you don't want to be a part of it, feel free to leave. We're not killing each other here, only disagreeing. Don't be a child.

Doing your best in Mormonism is never enough, you only achieve salvation by being perfect:

"Eternal life hangs in the balance awaiting the works of men. This process toward eternal life is a matter of achieving perfection. Living all the commandments guarantees total forgiveness of sins and assures one of exaltation through the perfection which comes by complying with the formula the Lord gave us... Being perfect means to triumph over sin. This is a mandate from the Lord. He is just and wise and kind. He would never require anything from his children which was not for their benefit and which was not attainable. Perfection therefore is an achievable goal." (Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 208)

"In the context of the spirit of forgiveness, one good brother asked me, "Yes, that is what ought to be done, but how do you do it? Doesn't that take a superman?''Yes,' I said,'but we are commanded to be supermen. Said the Lord,'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.'(Matt. 5:48.) We are gods in embryo, and the Lord demands perfection of us.'" (p. 286)

Doing "your best" isn't good enough:

"The Lord will not translate one's good hopes and desires and intentions into works. Each of us must do that for himself." (p. 8)

"There is one crucial test of repentance. This is abandonment of the sin.... In other words, it is not real repentance until one has abandoned the error of his ways and started on a new path... The saving power does not extend to him who merely wants to change his life." (p. 163)

"That is why we should not wait for the life beyond but should abandon evil habits and weaknesses while in the flesh on the earth. Elder Melvin J. Ballard pinpointed this problem: A man may receive the priesthood and all its privileges and blessings, but until he learns to overcome the flesh, his temper, his tongue, his disposition to indulge in the things God has forbidden, he cannot come into the celestial kingdom of God-he must overcome either in this life or in the life to come. But this life is the time in which men are to repent. Do not let any of us imagine that we can go down to the grave not having overcome the corruptions of the flesh and then lose in the grave all our sins and evil tendencies. They will be with us. They will be with the spirit when separated from the body. Clearly it is difficult to repent in the spirit world of sins involving physical habits and actions. There one has spirit and mind but not the physical power to overcome a physical habit. He can desire to change his life, but how can he overcome the lusts of the flesh unless he has flesh to control and transform? How can he overcome the tobacco or the drink habit in the spirit world where there is no liquor nor tobacco and no flesh to crave it? Similarly with other sins involving lack of control over the body." (p. 163)

"Perfection really comes through overcoming... Christ became perfect through overcoming. Only as we overcome shall we become perfect and move toward godhood. As I have indicated previously, the time to do this is now, in mortality".(pp. 209-210)

Like all members, you lie to yourself about what the LDS church is really teaching you. Members are either honest about it, or pretend to not have to think about it. But the above poster was right, you are never good enough.

But as you can see. Mormons want to think they can earn their place in His kingdom, reject the grace of Jesus Christ.
