Mark DeMoss Defends Mormonism And Rebukes Christians
Mark DeMoss has a message for his fellow evangelicals: You can’t attack and demean Mormons or President Barack Obama and still consider yourself a follower of Jesus Christ.
It is impossible to abide by Paul’s admonition to regard others as more important than yourself, DeMoss said Tuesday during a Brigham Young University devotional, "and also stand outside [LDS] General Conference hurling insults as [Mormons] walk by to worship with [their] fellow Latter-day Saints."
He urged LDS students gathered in the Marriott Center to think deeply about their goals and motives, making sure their words and deeds reflect their dependence on God and Jesus Christ.
DeMoss, who runs a faith-based public-relations firm in Atlanta, has been an unpaid adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign for the past five years. He has grown to admire the candidate and his family, and, he said in a phone interview, believes that any question about whether Mormons are Christians is "irrelevant to me in the context of choosing a president."
"If you set theology aside," DeMoss said in the interview, "there is no question that Mitt Romney’s values mirror the values of most evangelicals."
First of all its no insult to tell Mormons they are earning their way to Hell and are on the Broad road to destruction, as Jesus Christ said.
Secondly, the Jesus of LDS is a different Jesus. They reject the Triune God of Scripture and have a "gospel" of works, believing that Mormon men can attain to godhood and their wives will be eternally pregnant to populate their own planet. "As God once was, we are. As God is, we will be" is the motto of the LDS theology.
DeMoss was encouraging these kids to follow after their demonic god. He didn't call them to repent of their sin and idolatry and turn to the Triune God of Scripture.
DeMoss is compromising the Truth (IF he even had it) for the sake of a financial and powerful relationship.
Mormonism and Islam ARE doctrines of demons.
2Jn 1:9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.
2Co 11:3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.
2Cor. 6:14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.17 "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.18 "And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me," Says the Lord Almighty.
DeMoss is just one of a growing number of "Evangelical Christians" who are including the cult of Mormonism as "Christian" and tells the REAL Christians to back off. HE is an enemy of Christ Jesus. He is no Christian or Evangelical.
