    MormonLeaks does not break the law

    The Church Age had not yet begun and Christ had not yet ascended into heaven. There is essentially NOTHING yet to reveal with regard to salvation and the ministry of Christ's Church. The next chapter comes upon the catching away of the Church. And Mormon's don't seem anymore (if not less) acquainted than most Fundamentalist Bible Christians with regards to that RAPTURE (catching away).

    I don't see this as true. It was during that time Christ gave the great commission. And Christ's work was essentially OVER. He was revealing the fact of His resurrection. He had taught His disciple during His ministry and now He was sending them out.

    I believe children are a gift from GOD. Some are given an opportunity and some are not. I do not accept luck. We live in a FALLEN world but GOD still takes the opportunity to teach. This brings some closer to the Lord. and some despair because they refuse such "silly" notions as God.

    The reason being that Jesus wanted to teach and not simply be seen as some magician. He didn't say anything to Herod for obvious reasons; however, that did not stop people. And He wasn't trying to hide from those seeking after HIM --- nor hide HIS teachings.

    Why should teams get trophies for winning? Why should actors and actresses receive awards for their performances? Why should some children get an A on their report cards or a star on their assignments? Why should a person become president of a company, etc? WHY? It is because they went out and earned it. And anyone who has made a concerted effort to raise a child from birth, put their own wants and needs aside for that child, and attempt to bring that child up in a loving caring home, and deal with sickness, and nourishing that child ---------------has earned a place of honor. They have earned this honor more that any of those above mentioned earned theirs!

    The biblical Christian view is that everything Christians do should be open for public observation. Does the Bible say to hide our light under a bushel or place it upon a lamp stand? Obviously, we are not speaking of meeting secretly where the participants are being arrested for their faith. This was the case in Ancient Rome. However, even Roman soldiers became converts by being witnessed to and brought into church meetings. It is very hard for me to imagine that there are any rituals that Jesus taught to His disciples that He wanted hidden from the public at large simply because they were not "club" members. Christ became the Holy of Holies and the one, only and last perfect sacrifice for all time. And this in fact ended all the repetitious ritualism that was a mere shadow of that which Christ performed in His death, burial, and resurrection. And it is most obvious that the truth of this is revealed by the distortions that some pagans perpetrated --- namely: That Christians ate their children. They were unpatriotic to Caesar/Rome. Christians' were atheists!
  8. One can already search for one's bachelor uncle or old maid aunt. However, unless one makes public one's birth parents, mothers of children out of wedlock, and sperm donors, I really don't see how anyone would be able to trace their pedigree through couples who live a homosexual lifestyle (unless in fact they don't really).

    As a Christian, I don't see how the sins of the Father has any effect on his children's immersion. If they professed CHRIST as their personal Savior, they should have been baptized.

    The cost of being Mormon, and the loss.

    May I be so bold to ask if you believe if Peter, Paul, or Timothy were Mormons and would they recognizes the Mormon rituals and behavior patterns as something they promoted among the churches they were affiliated with? The reality is if indeed you do not believe that Mormon church affiliation is necessary to lead a full Christian life, then frankly, I'm very content with the church I'm already affiliated with and see no Biblical, spiritual nor rational reason to change. The church I attend is there to teach, promote the Gospel, and to bring Christians together in fellowship with other saints.

    It must be realized that, Jehovah Witnesses, Moonies, Scientologists, HariKrishnas all are minorities and face various issues; however, that in no way makes them C-O-R-R-E-C-T in their beliefs.

    Please regard the following : https://www.str.org/articles/what-does-it-mean-that-jesus-is-god’s-only-begotten-son#.WwM6DkgvyCg The phrase “only begotten” has been ammunition for false teachers since at least the fourth century at the Council of Nicea. This expression appears in one of the most memorized verses in the Bible. Jesus says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV).” Jehovah’s Witnesses, and other cults, have taken this to mean that Jesus was literally begotten. If Jesus was begotten, then he is a created being. Therefore, he cannot be God. Many Christians are unequipped to address this challenge primarily because it trades on the definition of a Greek word. However, once you understand the definition of the Greek work in play, the challenge evaporates. When a Jehovah’s Witnesses offers this challenge, I have a question. It’s the first Columbo question, what do you mean by that? More specifically, what does the original author mean by “only begotten?” Of course, the original author didn’t write in English; he wrote in Greek. The single Greek word translated “only begotten” is monogenes. Ancient writers often used this adjective to describe a child’s unique relationship with their parent. Moreover, the emphasis was on the specific relationship, not the physical begetting itself. In fact, monogenes is better understood to describe a relationship as “one-of-a-kind” or “unique.” This is exactly how the biblical writers would have understood the word. Consider when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac as an offering. God says to Abraham, “Take your son, your only [monogenes] son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you” (Gen. 22:2). Of course, before Abraham can carry out this command, God stops Abraham and says, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only [monogenes] son, from me” (Gen. 22:12). The author of Hebrews picks up on this expression and writes, “By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [monogenes] son. . . .” (Heb. 11:17 KJV). We know that Isaac wasn’t literally Abraham’s only begotten son. Isaac was the second son. Ishmael was Abraham’s first-born son. If you understand monogenes as a literal begetting, then God clearly got His facts wrong. However, if you understand monogenes as a unique, one-of-a-kind relationship, then God can accurately describe Isaac his “only” or “only begotten” son. Isaac was the only son of the covenant. Likewise, Jesus is God’s unique, one-of-a-kind Son. You can call him the “only begotten” Son if you like, but remember, this word isn’t about procreation. It’s about a unique relationship between the Father and Son. When many modern ears hear that Jesus is the Father’s “only begotten” Son, they immediately think He must have been created at a point in time. However, this is not the literal begetting of a son from a father. This would grossly distort the author’s original intent, and is why many modern translators have chosen to use “only” (ESV), or “one and only” (NIV, NLT, HCSB, NET) instead of “only begotten” (KJV, NASB). They are trying to avoid unnecessary confusion.

    The world was flatter before the Flood, as it was closer to its original pre-Fall condition. The Flood was the icing on the cake and gave us both the Grand Canyon and the Alps. Fossils are found everywhere, even on the top of mountains. Fossils are the result of quick burial, water, and mud. There are scientist who trust in their own research and evaluations and there are scientists who trust in GOD and His WORD.

    תּוֺלְדוֺת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְהָאָרֶץ Genesis 2:4 literally --- begettings of heaven and earth, i.e. account of heaven and earth and that which proceeded from them. Genesis 7:17-20 17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits. Scientifically, water must fill in ALL the lower regions before it can rise over the highest of hills.
