I do. They do not go by the bible nor does the bible mention mormonism it it. They have created a so called "extension" or another book of the bible calling it the book of mormon. Mormonism was created by a horny man wanting to screw more than one woman so he made it up saying GOD told him to do so. Women fell for it.
You are wrong. Mormons use the King James version of the bible, and use the book of mormon IN ADDITION to the bible. They believe that the book of mormon is a history of the americas, in much the way the bible is a history of the middle east. Does studying american history mean you dont believe in europian history? I dont think so. The bible is FULL of plural marriage, so I dont see how you can condemn the early mormons for their practice of it without condemning its practice in the bible.
If you want to hate Mormons, thats fine. But at least learn enough about them to know that the reasons you use for hating them actually exist.

Because the LDS church was suppose to be the "restored" church. The early church did not discriminate against races.
Acts 10:28
And he said to them,“You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit him; and yet God has shown me that I should not call ANY man unholy or unclean.
The early church was founded on discrimination from Jesus himself, even if he amended his own discriminatory practices later, an event you accept and applaud. Yet you have problems that the Mormon church would do the same thing and stop practising discrimination and you still find fault with them. The early church discriminated against women speaking in church and women holding positions in church men held.
Jesus began his discriminatory ministry preaching to Jews only and referenced all other people as dogs not worthy of hearing his words. While with Jesus, we have a moment where the apostles forbid another Jew from using his faith who was not of their discipleship, showing discrimination against others believing in the word of Jesus though they didn't follow Jesus.
The early church is rife with bias, prejudice and discrimination. And you still find time to excuse it all and find fault with Mormonism? Pleaseee....

You twist whichever the way the wind blows. LOL!!!
Some more of your dodging what you do that you wish not to confront honestly. I may use the words pathetic, idiot, idiocy, stupid and loser at times for how a person has thought of something they have written, but I have the common sense to speak politely and civilly as I would wish others to speak to me.
You on the other hand are stuck on debasing a dead guy by foul, crude, ugly gutter language to prove what? To prove your good at gutter language and nothing more. And you see that as a personal accomplishment some how? Why am I not surprised.
PS, if you really want to be considered a Christian by others, civil polite speech is a real beginning, just saying :)

The restored church is suppose to be the more enlightened New Testament church, not the one based on just the law of the Old.
You said in reply to the other poster... "Yet they were discriminated against for 150 yrs. How could this have happened with prophets and apostles who were suppose to be receiving direct revelation from God? That is a whole lot of "limited light".
I pointed out for an example that a prophet of God discriminated against an entire lineage to servitude as you find fault with Mormon leaders. Leaders you insinuate if they were real men of God would have never discriminated in the first place.
Unfortunately for you men the Bible call men of God and even Jesus himself openly discriminated against other people for various reasons since Noah.
And the early church Jesus set forth had offices the old Mosaic religion had. Can you name just three of these positions? Yes the NT church was obviously different than the Mosaic religion. But it was founded on the Mosaic religion and still is.

Yet even then Jesus did help anyone who asked for it, Jew or Gentile. And even if you are 100% correct, there is a huge difference between 3 yrs and 150 years. But Smith had no excuse, the Bible was clear on the subject. That isn't restoring anything, that is making it up as you go along.

Peter clearly changed the rules from the time of Acts 10 onward. Jesus helped everyone that ask for it. You failed. The early prophets also practiced polygamy, and that was forbidden in the NT church, and whether it was Old or New Testament, it was never a condition for ones salvation like Smith claimed. You only demonstrate how much Smith wasn't a prophet.

Your opinion of my standing as a Christian is of no concern of mine, as you your views of what is and is not Christian usually comes from the intellect of a crack smoker. Smith screwed his wives. He was a pig, and a pervert.

You are a vile predictable molester! You adultrate Christ gospel, and any relevant truths.

Your arguments have nothing to do with serious discussion... rather, a deep seeded lust of contempt for the Lord & your Father (the Bishop).

And you're just a sexually frustrated old hag who is getting closer and closer every day to the grave. Your days are numbered, and you smell the devil biting your ass. You need to stop worrying about the fate of your perverted religion and work on saving your own soul. Nothing will save Mormonism, but it's not too late for you.

Oh yeah that's right; they already spoke when they decided they'd rather be too high to remember.

If you don't think what the current generation of people is doing anything to further their character, it's because they've all become pleasure seeking zombies who follow Satan.
You don't have to follow this world down the black hole of being a divorced, Satanic addict.

The idiot masses absolutely refuse to THINK for themselves, so they attend Godless churches and vote Republican, which explains the Satanic Bible Belt.

There are a lot of aspects of Mormonism that clearly demonstrate this church is not even close to being Christian.

Here is just one more aspect of Mormonism, perhaps the most racist of all of their teachings, replacement theology, which if it were true would make the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel out to be a liar:

http://www.foxven.com/r2a-relevance-of-israel...

It isn't just the Mormons, it is practiced by many patriarchal hierarchical religions that mistakenly call themselves Christian.

Such atrocities as the Holocaust can be directly traced to the racist teaching of replacement theology and is causing many churches to address this concern.

Jesus was a Jew, grew up worshiping the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel, and dedicated his ministry entirely to this GOD that is as described in 1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

Religions that practice replacement theology like the Mormons are the opposite of Christian and could more properly be viewed as falling under the umbrella of the Antichrist.

We all need to get informed as to the evil nature of the Roman hoax of Christianity and it's many derivatives that deny the Jewish GOD and the Jewish Jesus and get involved in restoring true Christianity based on the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel to humanity that is even now being found to be in accord with the latest scientific findings concerning the nature of the Cosmos!

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!
