Mouw and Olsen Claim Mormonism Is Becoming Orthodox

Mouw continues to be a problem as he seeks to reconciles a demonic religion with Christianity. The first problem with Mormonism is that their God is an entirely different God and they reject the sole sufficiency of Scripture. Mouw wants to skip that part and move on with some sort of presumption it seems, that there's common ground somewhere. 2 Cor. 6:14-18 makes it clear that there is no such thing with LDS.

Notice the subtlety of using MUSIC to get people to hear and re-evaluate the demonic LDS--and they will because Evangelicals don't believe in biblical doctrine and are easily enamored with nice-sounding music. Folks, music MATTERS--the lyrics and the spirit from which it came. And just because someone sings a "right" song doesn't make him a "right" Christian.

According to his interview with "The Christian Post": "Mouw noted that there have been developments within Mormon churches that "should be seen as hopeful patterns for evangelicals," such as more sermons and hymns being sung that focus on the Bible rather than the Book of Mormon:

"Whether they mean that Mormons are moving toward Orthodoxy — I don't know. But my extensive contacts with Mormons tell me that many Mormons testify to their deep conviction that their salvation rests on the work of Christ, and that the gift of salvation comes by grace alone," continued Mouw.
"This is confirmed, not in doctrinal pronouncements, but — as I give evidence for in my essay — in the hymns they love to sing and the biblical texts they frequently cite."
Mouw is not alone in this assessment of a possible move by Mormons toward more traditional Christianity. Roger Olson, theology professor at Baylor University, wrote a blog post on Patheos last year arguing that the LDS Church was becoming "more biblical."

End quote.

The problem is that at the very foundation of Mormonism is everything that is false: a false book, a false gospel, a false Jesus, a false God, a false church, a false prophet, a false atonement, a false religion. There is no way to modify Mormonism and have biblical Christianity. Indeed to claim this, one might as well say there can be a more biblical Satanism or Hinduism. It's literally impossible because as 1John says, lies have nothing to do with Truth.  A little leaven leavens the whole loaf; here it's bakery full of leavened bread. No, for Mormonism to become biblical, it would cease to be Mormon and cease to exist, with Mormons REPENTING of their pagan idolatry and deceptive cult and turning to the biblical Christ Jesus and His Gospel.

Here is a video that proves Mouw and some of the leaders he's listened to are lying. Mormon Leaks note: "This internal training video given to the General Authorities instructing them how to powerfully testify of Jesus Christ and other Mormon gospel topics. The video contains many examples of General Authorities past and present speaking in public about these topics and declaring their beliefs with authority."
The LDS leaders are continuing their demonic doctrines. Y
ou can hear the subtle use of truth with error--Moroni called Jesus "the author and finisher of our faith", not the apostle Paul, not the Triune God (as He is the Author of Scripture). They instruct people on the "atonement" and their desire to have Mormons grow in the atonement and in life in order to achieve "exaltation". Now, if you know anything about LDS doctrine, you know that refers to becoming a god. They mention the "saving ordinances" and all of this is just less than 5 minutes into the message.

2Co 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.

Thank you Denise. My husband and I were recently talking about how the word, "Cult" has fallen off the radar. Leah Remini uses it when talking of Scientology. But, I guess, it's just one of those dividing words!

That is true Patricia, and it's annoying, really, because it then softens the danger of such groups and ignores it's tactics and dogma. Labeling them correctly clarifies things so that we can deal with things as they truly are. But when I think about it, aren't most doing the same thing with words like: sin, repentance, Christian, homosexuality? So I suppose it's not surprising they would with "cult". Thank you so much for coming by and commenting.
