On Franklin Graham And The Pentagon’s Rescinding Their Invitation

Posted by Job on April 26, 2010

You may have heard about how Franklin Graham was disinvited to a Pentagon prayer service because of his refusal to rescind comments that he made attacking Islam, as it is the subject of not a little controversy. Two thoughts.

1. Some use incidents as these as evidence that America is turning away from Christianity. My position is that nations and governments are all of the world, and as such have rejected Jesus Christ and will be judged by this same Jesus Christ. While the rejection of Jesus Christ by our nation and its institutions is perhaps more overt in some respects than in the past, and while there probably are indeed fewer legitimate Christians in America in terms of the percentage of the population than there were in times past, America is still as it always was … of the world. The church of Jesus Christ is the ekklesia, the elect that is called out of the world. Further, America is just one of many nations that has existed and will exist in human history. While God has used America’s Christians to do a lot of great things (i.e. in missionary evangelism), let us not fall into the deceptive thinking that America has a special standing before God; that America is or ever was in some sort of covenant relationship with God, or any of the other myths of American culture and tradition. There was only one nation brought into existence as an act of special creation by God with the purpose of being the light to the nations. That nation was Israel, and Israel’s purpose was fulfilled in Jesus Christ. God did not create America or any other nation to carry out the purposes that Jesus Christ – God in the flesh – already accomplished.

2. For the record, I agree with what Franklin Graham said against Islam. This places me in league with virtually all of the supporters of Graham in this controversy. The point of divergence is that I will apply what Graham said against Islam to Judaism, Mormonism, Roman Catholicism and any other false or heretical religion or belief system that denies God’s revelation and exalts itself against the God of the Bible. So Graham attacks Islam, suffers (minor) consequences for it, and is the evangelical hero of the moment in some quarters. But suppose Graham were to say the same about Judaism? These same people wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole. Many of them would be front and center denouncing Graham as anti-Semitic and hateful, and they would by no means be limited to premillennial dispensationalists. The very same people who run their little “Jihad Watch” websites and blogs reciting violent statements in the Koran ignore that the very same exhortations to commit genocide and kill nonbelievers appear in the Old Testament, making them perfectly valid for Jews to practice. They know full well that Jews are operating in darkness because they reject the New Testament revelation – that of an explicitly fully revealed Jesus Christ – that puts the Old Testament into context. Yet had Graham gone after Jews the way that he did Muslims, how many people would find his being expelled from the Pentagon prayer event to be overly objectionable? The same number as would had Graham said those things against Roman Catholics and Mormons. The conservative evangelicals on the religious right, who rely on conservative Catholics, Mormons and Jews, would in particular be apoplectic. Which, of course, is why you rarely hear evangelical leaders speaking against those false religions anymore.

Yes, I know that Franklin Graham made those comments after September 11th, when Muslims killed a great many Americans. But in addition to Graham’s unwillingness to challenge Roman Catholics on their many heresies because he is an ecumenical sort like his father, it is curious that Graham was moved to such strong speech by Muslims’ killing Americans but not Americans’ killing Muslims. What does Graham think of our overthrowing the Iranian government over oil profits? What does Graham think of our overthrowing the Iraqi government to put Saddam Hussein in power, and then sponsoring Hussein’s Iraq government in a war against this same Iran (after they turned on us) that killed millions of Muslims? What does Graham think of first war against Iraq, which happened because Hussein invaded Kuwait as part of a scheme to get OPEC to raise oil prices because our proxy war against Iran left his nation broke? What does Graham think of the crushing sanctions against Iraq after the first Iraq War, or the second Iraq War? Apparently, it is just fine for America to kill millions of Muslims with wars, proxy wars and sanctions. We’re America, and we can do whatever we want, right? But when the Muslim world responds to our killing millions of THEM by killing a few thousand of US, this is how Graham responds (and keep in mind, this was Graham’s softened public relations backtrack from his original, harsher comments)? Graham talks about how Islam treats its women when America invented pornography and is trying to impose legalized abortion on the rest of the world through the U.N. and other NGOs?

Here is a quote: “Graham later wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal saying he did not believe Muslims were evil because of their faith, but “as a minister … I believe it is my responsibility to speak out against the terrible deeds that are committed as a result of Islamic teaching.”  Fine. But let’s hear Graham, as a minister, replace “Muslim” with “Jew”, “Mormon”, “Roman Catholic”, “Jehovah’s Witness” or “AMERICAN” in that sentence. Theologically, he would be justified. But if he did, the same people defending him over this now would have rejected him over it. The reason is that these people aren’t interested in legitimate Bible-based Christianity. If they were, it would be Muslim, Mormon, Jew, Catholic … six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Instead, these people are fighting political and cultural battles. Because after all, politics and culture – the world – is the only sphere where preferring the Muslim to the Jew or Catholic makes sense. It’s the only sphere where an aggressively hostile attitude towards Muslims can coexist with the “Christians must support Israel!” mindset when in truth there is no New Testament justification for EITHER.

Now again, what Franklin Graham said against Islam was 100% true. The problem is that the same people who supported Graham in what he said against Islam would abandon him in a heartbeat were he to say the same against Jews, Catholics, or for that matter whatever policy that got us into this Iraq/Iran mess. The reason for this double standard, this hypocrisy is worldliness, and this worldliness is not something that can be blamed on the people that had Graham disinvited from the prayer event.

New World Order Billy Graham Cronies Telling White Evangelicals To Vote For Barack HUSSEIN Obama!

Posted by Job on June 9, 2008

Obama Could Win 40 Percent of Evangelical Vote, Says Expert

A well-connected authority in the evangelical world said in an interview this week that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama could get up to 40 percent of the evangelical vote. The fascination with the charismatic Illinois senator combined with evangelicals’ effort to not be seen as an appendage of the Republican Party could swing evangelical voters in Obama’s favor, predicted Mark DeMoss – a prominent public relations executive whose clients include Focus on the Family, Franklin Graham, and Campus Crusade for Christ – to Beliefnet.com. (Can we no longer pretend to ignore the clear influence of the new world order types: Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefellers, Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, freemasons, etc. on this crowd? The PR man for Franklin Graham is basically making it OK for evangelicals to vote for Obama, just as Franklin Graham’s father is responsible for the evangelical – Roman Catholic alliance?)

“I will not be surprised if he gets one third of the evangelical vote,” DeMoss said in the interview. “I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 40 percent.” For comparison, the public relations guru pointed out that one-third of white evangelicals had voted for former president Bill Clinton in his 1996 re-election bid during the “height of [the] Monica Lewinsky mess.” (Keep in mind: BILLY GRAHAM WAS A HUGE SUPPORTER OF BILL CLINTON!)

“That’s a statistic I didn’t believe at first but I double and triple checked it,” he said, “I would not be surprised if that many or more voted for Barack Obama in this election.” In terms of Republican presidential nominee John McCain, DeMoss spoke about the lack of enthusiasm within the evangelical circle for the candidate. He said that for months now he hasn’t received an e-mail, letter, or phone call from fellow evangelicals urging that they unite behind McCain and “put aside whatever differences we have.”

“It’s just very quiet. It could mean there’s a real sense of apathy or it could mean they’re waiting for the general election to begin,” he said. “But it’s a surprise, given the way e-mail networks work now.” On McCain’s part, he hasn’t done much to reach out to DeMoss either. DeMoss said he has received one phone call from a McCain staffer about a month ago asking if he would like to help campaign for McCain. But the evangelical leader, who had enthusiastically campaigned for former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, turned down the invitation. (So … Billy and Franklin Graham supported Mormon Mitt Romney. Check, and got it.)

“I told him that I’m a conservative first and a Republican second,” he said. “I was inclined to vote for Senator McCain but not to get involved beyond that.” (And you are a Christian … where? And … Obama is a conservative or a Republican … where? Seriously, people, if I wanted to make this stuff up I couldn’t).

DeMoss briefly mentioned the 2000 incident when McCain lashed out at his former boss, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson. He later commented that McCain’s recent rejection of the endorsements of Pastors John Hagee and Rod Parsley was a “mistake.” (So … rejecting the support of blaspheming demonic heretics is a mistake?) Although the two pastors have some controversial views on theology, both, in terms of values, support what many evangelicals hold dear, DeMoss contends. (Which is precisely why movements centered around “values” instead of Jesus Christ TAKES PEOPLE TO THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY.)

“Here were two conservative religious pastors who were probably out on a limb supporting him,” he said. (What, so they didn’t PRAY and CONSULT THEIR BIBLES before acting? You mean they acted outside of God’s Will? Shocking. Who would have figured it! Then again, that isn’t quite what you said, now is it?) “And he responds to criticism over comments they made and rejects them. That was a slap in the face to evangelicals who are already somewhat suspect of Senator McCain.”

But whatever happens in this election, one thing DeMoss wants to make clear is evangelicals are not “absolutely Republican.” “Polls don’t show that to be true,” he said. (Whatever happens in this election, it is clear that a lot of evangelicals are not following Jesus Christ and comprehending and obeying the Bible, and, well, the polls prove it. And hey, so does the fact that so many evangelicals are following people like you and your bosses!)

Franklin Graham Calls On Christians To Obey Chinese Government On Evangelism

Posted by Job on May 23, 2008

Graham discourages ‘illegal’ evangelizing in China

Despite fierce criticism from some Christian activists, N.C.-based evangelist Franklin Graham said Sunday he’s sticking by his opposition to any “illegal” missionary work during this summer’s Beijing Olympics.

Graham, who recently met with state-sanctioned church leaders and government officials in China, told the Observer that as head of the Charlotte-based Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he obviously supports evangelism. (So, because of this fellow’s  position we are to just bow to him and not question or challenge him? Imagine if Peter had said “as an apostle I obviously have love for the Gentile Christians” and Paul had said “OK, it is fine for you to be a hypocrite and mistreat the Gentiles over table fellowship” in Galatians? This is how far from the Bible modern popular Christianity has gotten.) But he said he worries that the planned influx of American and other foreign missionaries into China for the Olympics could jeopardize freedoms Chinese Christians have won in recent years from the Communist government.

“I would be against any groups that would be coming in and encouraging people to break Chinese law,” said Graham, who has no plans to attend the Olympics or send any missionaries. “As foreigners, we can come in and make some mistakes that would hurt the (Chinese) church. Then, long after we’re gone, they suffer for it.”

Graham encouraged the Beijing-bound missionaries to familiarize themselves with Chinese laws regulating religion. Those laws — available at www.billygraham.org — make it a crime for foreigners to evangelize without Chinese government approval.

Christian mission groups from around the world — including Southern Baptists, “Youth With a Mission” and “Awaken Generation” — plan to quietly defy the Chinese ban on foreign missionaries and send thousands of volunteer evangelists to Beijing.

The Error Of The Evangelical Manifesto

Posted by Job on May 15, 2008

The “Evangelical Manifesto.”   Last Wednesday, a group of prominent
Evangelicals released the “Evangelical Manifesto: A Declaration of
Evangelical Identity and Public Commitment.”  The Steering Committee
includes: Os Guinness; Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford
University; Rich Mouw, President, Fuller Theological Seminary; and Dallas
Willard, Professor of Philosophy, University of Southern California.  It has
been signed by apx. 80 “evangelical leaders,” though when a trained eye
looks through the list of signers, it becomes apparent what this document is
really all about.

For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family for a while, you might
remember me mentioning the gutless Dr.Mouw back in December of 2004, who
along with Ravi Zacharias, became pawns used by the Mormons to give them
mainstream credibility.  Here is an excerpt from that 12/07/04 Devotional:
“Mouw preceded Zacharias and amazingly apologized, yes, apologized to the
Mormon crowd of roughly 7,000 stating, ‘We evangelicals have sinned against
you. We have demonized you.’ Since when was exposing the false gospel of the
Mormon cult a sin? That is exactly what we are supposed to do! Also, the
last I checked, those who lead people’s souls into everlasting damnation are
demonic!”

First of all, let me state the obvious.  We already have an “Evangelical
Manifesto,” it is called THE BIBLE and it has the greatest author of all
time…GOD!  The real purpose of this document is to create a shift in power
regarding those who are seen as the Christian leaders of our day and those
who speak for the Christian community.  Many years ago, I had to make some
hard choices.  Do I build a giant ministry organization and preach to the
choir like the rest, putting my voice into the same mix as Falwell,
Robertson, Kennedy, Dobson, Graham, and the others, or follow God’s calling
as a true evangelist and reach out to the lost and hurting souls outside the
four walls of the church, and take on more of a prophetic ministry to reach
this lost world with God’s Truth.  I made the decision to pass on the
comfort, prominence, prestige, and financial security of building another
Christian organization, and chose instead  to give my life reaching the lost
and hurting with the hope of Jesus Christ.

That choice has given me the unique position of being free from the politics
of the “church,” and allowed me to not have to compromise the Truth of the
Bible to keep a “Christian business” going.  Like the prophets in the Old
Testament, I have been in the unique position few are in, to deal with the
issues of the day and in people’s lives without worrying about pleasing men,
only God.  My focus has never had to be about raising money for
infrastructure and operations, only for saving souls.  I have no other
agenda but God’s.  My goals aren’t earthly but heavenly.  My legacy won’t be
in buildings or the temporal things of this world that will one day soon be
gone, but the lives God has used me to impact and the eternal souls of men.

Many of those who put together and signed this document are for the most
part those who I have warned you about in recent years, this emerging group
known as the “Christian left.”  Prominent signers of this murky document are
people like Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners, and Rick Warren, Pastor of
Saddleback and author of the Purpose Driven Life.  A major portion of this
document is spent repudiating Christians involved in politics, and seeks to
replace the fight for life, marriage, and family issues, with a focus on
world hunger, AIDs in Africa, and environmental issues.   It also lashes out
at those who have the audacity to go into the public arena and take a stand
for Christ based on the Truth of God’s Word.  The document says evangelicals
have often expressed “truth without love,” helping create a backlash against
religion during a “generation of culture warring.”  The fact is, we have
been intimidated into silence by those who represent satan!

This is the mindset fostered by the “seeker,” “emerging church,” and “church
growth” crowd that for the past 15 years have watered down the Gospel and
set aside the absolutes of the Bible to attract warm bodies.  What they have
done is created a new subculture of “Christians” who might be saved, but
live no different than the world and easily embrace the lies of the false
religions, cults, and New Age teachings that are leading the souls of men to
hell.  This is why you have people like Oprah who claim to be a Christian,
yet promote the lies of every New Age guru that comes down the path.  This
is why you have people like Sen. Barak Hussein Obama who claims to be a
Christian, yet votes continually to slaughter babies and redefine God’s Holy
Institution of Marriage.  This is why you have Christians who think people
in a satanic cult like the Mormons will go to Heaven.  This is why you have
people who call themselves “Christians,” but deny that the Bible is the only
Truth there is!

Add to this the prominence of pastors who are little more than motivational
speakers like Robert Schuller and Joel Osteen who go into the secular media
when they want to sell their latest book, and brag bout never talking about
sin or the social issues of our day and refuse to answer the most simple
question of the faith, whether Jesus is the ONLY way to be saved or not.  So
people read their books, watch their TV programs to “feel good” and become
part of this new subculture of “Christians” who have no concept of basic
theology and embrace lies like “there are many roads that lead to God.

Don’t believe me?  Here is a typical email we get daily:  “I’m a
Metaphysical Christian and a Human being a child of GOD. I was baptized at
Saddleback Church with Rick Warren.  There is a very powerful wonderful
movement of consciousness going on right now obviously the old way is not
working very well. Watch a few Videos on Esther Hicks etc GOD bless you
too!”  What a load of garbage.  Metaphysical Christian???  The “old way” is
not working very well?  The old way being the Bible?  Ester Hicks is one of
the more popular New Age teachers out there today.  I wish you could see the
feed back I get daily from the Daily Devotional, from the TV program, from
my appearances on FOX News, CNN, and from the videos we post on YouTube.
People who call themselves “Christians,” yet reject the Bible as the only
Truth there is, and embrace beliefs that are in complete contradiction to
what the Bible teaches.

How did this happen?  It started with the church.  Forty years ago the
mainline denominations brought in pastors who were from liberal seminaries
and denied the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible.  They quit preaching
the Gospel of Jesus Christ and opted for a social gospel instead.  At the
same time, you had this growing Christian subculture of Christian TV, radio,
and publishing, geared to and marketed to Christians.  Major ministries and
Christian organizations were birthed that generated tens of millions
annually, and for the most part did very little  but preach to the choir and
self perpetuate themselves from one year to the next.

Billions have been raised and squandered on the temporal things of this
world instead of on the work of God.  We have extracted ourselves from the
marketplace, and now not only have the better percentage of two full
generations who have never even been to church, but a new generation of
“Christians” who don’t believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of
God, representing Absolute Truth, and our final authority in all maters.  It
is no wonder our nation is in spiritual freefall and this world we live in
grows darker by the day.  Men of God in days gone by didn’t build great
organizations, they built up men and women to serve the Lord.  They only had
one book, the Bible, and one message, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They
never compromised the Truth of God’s Word and their only goal was to save
souls!

I love you and care about you so much.  While I agree with 90% of what is in
the “Evangelical Manifesto,” the other 10% makes it a document designed to
give more power and prominence to those in the Christian left,  replace
abortion, marriage, and family issues with issues like world hunger, poverty
and disease, and calls for Christians to be more friendly to non-Christians
by not talking about things like sin and hell in the public.  Just in case
you were wondering, they never contacted me about signing this document.
LOL!!!

I have been warning you for years now about this new and growing group who
make up the Christian left who are now fighting with the old guard on the
Christian right for power and to be the voice of Christians.  The Christian
left waters down the Gospel and lays aside the absolutes of the Bible in
order to attract warm bodies and advance their social agenda, while the
Christian right has been turned into little more than a very lucrative
business that generates hundreds of millions annually around various causes
and is more concerned with power and self preservation than getting actual
results.  This leaves Christians alone to deal with the hurts and pains of
every day life with a very thin foundation to their faith, while the vast
majority of people are living without hope and heading to hell when they
die.

However, there is a remnant, a faithful group of Believers who have not sold
out and whose sole goal is to serve the Lord and see God’s Kingdom advanced.
Praise God for those faithful pastors and ministries that only want to see
the work of the Gospel accomplished as they share the Truth of God’s Word
without compromise and labor to bring the lost to faith in Jesus Christ.
These are the last days my friend.  Jesus is coming at any moment.  There is
no time for playing games.  People are dying and heading to hell every
second.  The focus of all Believers in Jesus Christ has to be on bringing
lost souls to faith in our Lord.  We don’t need an “Evangelical Manifesto,”
we already have one and it is called THE BIBLE!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

So James Dobson, Do You Support Mormon Mitt Romney Or Not?

Posted by Job on October 12, 2007

If this devotional is a blessing to you, maybe you have a friend or family member
that would like to start receiving this daily word. You can forward this to them,
and they can use the following link to subscribe.

to be part of the "Liveprayer 30" to seize this opportunity to use some of
God's blessings to make a HUGE IMPACT on millions of souls for eternity and
the spiritual course of this nation!  We are putting this special group of
people together not to build another building, or put on anther weekend
crusade full of people from area churches, but to launch an ongoing
nationwide evangelistic effort :live" for an hour 5 days a week that will
lead millions of lost souls to faith in Christ and help lead this nation
back to God and Biblical values!  We have the proven vehicle to do it with
and I am simply looking now for 30 people who God has blessed financially

did this past week with a high profile atheist and the head of the extreme
Muslim group CAIR, you can access the DD and the video at the link below.
Very few Christians are willing to confront sin and evil head on which is
why our nation and world is in spiritual freefall.  I deal with it every
day.  You have read about it, but now you can SEE IT and HEAR IT and
hopefully understand why I am so passionate about what we do here each day
at Liveprayer.  There is no earthly fame or fortune to be gained by taking a
bold stand for Christ and Biblical Truth in the marketplace, only trouble
and people who want to see you silenced which is why most pass.  This is
about one thing, battling for the souls of men!

***OBSESSION...THE MOVIE!!!  On Friday, September 7th, I shared with you a
prophetic word about how Islam very well could be God's instrument of
judgment on the United States just like Babylon was used to punish the
children of Israel.  If you do not understand what the radical Islamists
intend to do, or your friends or family refuse to believe you, you must see
this movie. Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West.  It will show
what they are doing and what they intend to do.  It will show you the hate
that they have.  If you think Islam is a religion of peace, you must see the
truth.  I believe this is one of the most important movies ever created
since it is a clear wake-up call to a sleeping nation!  Check it out at
http://www.obsessionthemovie.com

***GOD'S TIMING!!!  I have always told you there are no accidents with God.
It was only hours after I finished this critical Devotional for today on how
many top evangelical Christians leaders had sold out the cause of Christ to
back Mitt Romney, the member of a satanic cult, and the story below about
one of those leaders I named hit the wires.  In this story is a PDF of the
actual letter he sent.   I couldn't make these things up in my wildest
imagination.  THIS IS NO COINCIDENCE!  Now more than ever, you need to
carefully read this Devotional and than this story.
http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/10/mitt-romney-gets-a-boost-from-an-evangelical-supporter/index.html?ex=1192680000&en=3771532d12289b44&ei=5065&partner=MYWAY

Dr. James Dobson and many evangelical Christian leaders are more worried
about money and power than souls!  I have sat back these past months in
utter amazement as I have watched one major evangelical Christian leader
after another refuse to denounce Mitt Romney for being part of a satanic
cult!  I have even been more amazed as I have watched many major evangelical
Christian leaders actually endorse this cult members bid to become the next
President of the United States.  Of course the question I kept asking myself
was, why?  Why would these men who God has raised up as spiritual leaders,
men who claim to champion the cause of Christ, have anything to do with a
man who has literally pledged his allegiance to satan?  I wish there was a
better answer as to why these men who by virtue of their position are called
to live their lives above reproach and without compromise, but in the end it
sadly boils down to two things, MONEY AND POWER!

Dr. James Dobson is the head of the international ministry Focus on the
Family.  Because of his influence over the years, he has become a major
player in the political arena.  As a spiritual leader God has raised up in
these last days, he should have dealt with Romney's candidacy in the only
way a follower of Christ can.  That is to clearly state he would never vote
for or have anything to do with someone who is the member of a satanic cult
but will pray for him to turn from the lies of Mormonism and to faith in the
Jesus of the Bible!  However, that is not what Dr. Dobson has done.  He has
danced around the Romney question, refusing to take a stand against his
candidacy.  He has even kept the door open to support Romney should he win
the Republican nomination.  What would make a man of God do this?  MONEY!

One of the things that makes the Mormon cult so attractive is their
dedication to family.  They are no doubt big consumers of the
family-friendly resources Focus on the Family sells.  Did you know that
Focus on the Family has formed a political alliance with the Mormon cult?
The alliance is called the World Congress of Families (WCOF).     It is a
United Nations lobbying group STARTED AND FUNDED by the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), better known as the Mormon CULT!!!  FOF
has actually been holding planning committee meetings on their Colorado
Springs campus with officials from the WCOF, BYU and other Mormon
organizations!  This alliance flies in the face of clear Scriptural mandates
to not form alliances with the enemies of God.  Dobson refuses to speak out
on Romney being part of a satanic cult because his ministry is in bed with
and makes money off of that satanic cult!!!

There is a price to pay when you take a stand for Christ.  If you remember
last year Liveprayer had put together a deal with Larry Jones and Feed the
Children that conservatively would have brought $1 million a year to the
ministry.  However, I ended that deal when I learned Jones had been paid to
promote the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, giving out there CDs as premiums for
people who gave to Feed the Children.  If Jones wants to take money from a
satanic cult to promote the music of that cult's choir, that is his choice.
How can I with any conscience warn people that they will die and go to hell
for following the lies of Joseph Smith, and turn around and play a
commercial for Feed the Children that promotes the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?
Is $1 million dollars enough to look the other way knowing souls will die
and go to hell?

Dobson is not alone.  Jay Sekulow, the high profile Christian attorney and
the head of the ACLJ is supporting Romney.  He even has family on the Romney
for President payroll.  The word from over a dozen sources is that Sekulow
has sold out Christ to join this satanic cult member because he was promised
to be named to the Supreme Court if Romney gets elected.  The former head of
the Christian Coalition, Ralph Reed has joined the Romney camp.  So has the
head of a major Christian PR firm, Mark DeMoss.  So has Dr. Jack Templeton
of the Templeton Foundation.  Why?  Why would men of God who know Jesus as
their Savior, who believe the Bible to be God's Word and Truth, align
themselves with the member of a satanic cult?  Why would they become Judas
and sell out Jesus?  For the hope of having access to the power of the
Presidency should Romney get elected.  Sadly, these men of God are selling
out the Lord for the hope of a few minutes of earthly power.

I was shocked this past May when the national controversy arose over my
speaking out on Romney for being part of a satanic cult.  When it started, I
was wondering where were my brothers and sisters in the ministry?  Why
weren't they coming to my defenses and acknowledge that the beliefs of the
Mormon cult are totally inconsistent with Biblical Christianity?  Worse yet,
why was I being attacked by fellow Christians for speaking out against this
satanically inspired cult?  It was during that period of time I became aware
that most national Christian leaders didn't have the guts to call this cult
what they were for fear of being labeled as "intolerant," "hateful," and a
host of other names, since many national Christian ministries and
organizations have a percentage of Mormon cult members contributing to them!
It was also during that period of time I realized most Christians thought a
Mormon was a Christian too!!!

When national Christian leaders and most pastors are too afraid to speak out
against this cult, it is no wonder why the vast majority of Christians are
totally ignorant about what this cult believes.   In addition, they have
been brainwashed by the masterful PR efforts of the Mormon cult to have
people believe they are Christians.  NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE
TRUTH!  Mitt Romney is no more a Christian the Osama Bin Laden is!  Romney,
like all members of his satanic cult, is a LIAR! He goes out on the campaign
trail and talks about his belief in God, Jesus, and the Bible, and that he
is just like any other Christian. Romney has been very clever and
calculating in perpetuating the lie that he is a "Christian" by attracting
mainline evangelical figures like Sekulow, Reed, DeMoss, Templeton and many
others to support his candidacy.  He has correctly calculated that the
theologically ignorant and politically correct secular media will never have
the guts to challenge him on what he refers to as "his faith" or "his
church."

Here are just a few of the theological issues that makes the satanic Mormon
cult totally inconsistent with Biblical Christianity and why a Mormon is no
more a Christian than a Muslim is. These are the things the lying Mr. Romney
won't tell you, so I will. The god of the Mormon cult is NOT the God of the
Bible. Their "god" is named Elohim and was once a man like you and I who
came from another planet. Mormon theology teaches that men can eventually
become a god and have their own planet. Romney, as a member of this cult,
believes that he too will one day become a god. When he talks about "god,"
he is talking about this fictitious god of Mormonism and NOT the God of the
Bible!

This holds true for Jesus. The jesus of Mormon theology is not God incarnate
as the Bible teaches. The Mormon jesus was not supernaturally conceived by
the Holy Ghost, but the natural offspring of their "god" Elohim who had sex
with Mary, meaning he is a created being no different than you and I.
Mormons also teach that their jesus had several wives and children, again,
in compete contradiction to what the Bible teaches. The jesus of Romney and
the Mormon cult is also the brother of Lucifer and will return not to the
Mt. Of Olives as the Bible teaches, but to Independence, Missouri to set up
his earthly Kingdom. When Romney talks about "jesus," he is NOT talking
about the true Jesus of the Bible!

*What Jesus you put your faith in is so critical, since this is why anyone
who puts their faith in the imaginary jesus of Joseph Smith and the satanic
Mormon cult will die in their sins and their souls burn forever in the
flames of hell!

What about the Bible and true Christian churches? Mormons love to use the
Bible and quote from the Bible to support their deception that they are
Christians. The trademark of all cults and false religions, even those who
use the Bible, is that it is NOT their final authority. In the Mormon cult,
their authority does not come from the Bible which they view as incomplete
and not reliable, but the writings of Smith, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl
of Great Price, and the Doctrine and Covenants. These are the writings that
form the false theology of this cult. Romney and all Mormons believe that
non-Mormons are "abominations." While they don't have the guts the Muslims
do to publicly call a non-Muslim an infidel who should be put to death, a
Mormon views a Biblical Christian as part of a "false religion" and void of
all authority. Mitt Romney believes a Bible-believing Christian, the very
people he is courting so hard, are an abomination!

Like in all cults, the average member hasn't got a clue what their cult
really believes. You only get to know everything after you have proven
yourself to be a loyal and worthy member of the cult. That is true in the
Mormon cult as well. Most Mormons go to their "church," sing many of the
same hymns they sing at the Baptist church down the road, give their tithe,
read a few passages out of the Bible, hear a message about being a "good
person," and go home. It is only when you get to become a "temple Mormon"
that you really learn all of the deep, dark, beliefs of Mormonism. The
Mormon temple rituals are actually little more than the temple rituals Smith
copied from another cult, Freemasonry! Smith who was involved in the Masonic
cult, simply copied and incorporated their chants, handshakes, and
ceremonies when he started the Mormon cult. These are the same chants,
handshakes, and ceremonies Romney participated in when he took his oath to
the Mormon cult above anything else, INCLUDING THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND
CONSTITUTION!

The average person has no idea that the ultimate goal of the Mormon cult is
to establish a theocracy here in the United States. Joseph Smith, the cult's
founder actually ran for the Presidency. So did Romney's father. This cult
has the very real goal of establishing the "Kingdom of God," which means
advancing the physical and earthly organization of the multi-billion dollar
Mormon cult. There is a special room in the Mormon Temple located in
Washington, DC that has been prepared and in place for over 30 years, which
will be the seat of power for the Mormon-led government which will supplant
our current government. This was the vision Smith laid out less than 200
years ago, and Mitt Romney and those in the hierarchy and leadership of the
Mormon cult see this as the time for that vision to become fulfilled!

I love you and care about you so much. Dr. Dobson, Sekulow, and any other
Christian who backs Romney should be ashamed of themselves for selling out
Christ for a few dollars and/or moments of earthly political power.  The
fact is those who follow the lies of Smith and the Mormon cult will die and
go to hell.  I have done my best in a limited amount of time to give you a
brief overview of the false and satanic beliefs of the Mormon cult. I have
just barely scratched the surface, but just in what I have shared with you
today, NOBODY in their right mind could ever believe that a Mormon is a
Christian. When you study Mormon theology and understand the wild beliefs of
Smith and this cult, you need faith greater than I will ever hope to have to
believe what they do. There is no logic to it and there is absolutely
nothing they believe that has any basis in realty or can be proven. The
mythical gold tablets Smith said he found . Men who become gods and have
their own planet where they have many wives and create "spirit babies." It
all makes Star Trek look believable!

The Mormon cult shares some of the same scientific fantasies of the
Scientology cult dreamed up by that science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.
It also has some elements of the false religion of Islam in that they
believe all non-Mormons are an abomination and they will one day rule the
earth. As I shared earlier, they have also taken some of the dark, satanic
rituals of the Masonic cult and incorporated them into their temple
ceremonies. Listen, Mitt Romney and those in this cult can believe whatever
they want. God gave us free will, and men who live in rebellion to God since
the very beginning have dreamed up the wildest and most ridiculous things,
and sadly people who were spiritually void chose to believe their lies and
will be lost for all eternity because of it. My main point is that they be
honest and truthful about what they believe. The danger of Mormonism is that
they are deceptive (just look at their name, the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints) and will lie without conscience just like the father of
lies, satan (John 8:44), to get people to join their cult.

Christian leaders and pastors have to be responsible enough to tell people
what the Mormon cult really believes. They can't simply give Romney a pass
when he talks about "his faith" and "his church." They need to have the guts
to tell people what "his faith and church" really believe and challenge him
when he uses words like God, Jesus, and the Bible. They don't have to take
my word for it. There is a wealth of information easily accessible out there
by thousands of people who were once part of this cult. There is 100% proof
and documentation of all that this cult believes. When you challenge a
Mormon on their beliefs, they will flat out lie to you. In a recent debate
with Mormon apologist Scott Gordon on the Alan Colmes radio program, I
addressed many of the issues I have talked about today, plus things like
their belief that you can pray for someone who is dead to be saved, their
belief black people have been cursed, and each time he flat out LIED about
what they really believe.

So I am calling today for Dr. Dobson and all Christian leaders and pastors
to once and for all go on the record and denounce the candidacy of Mitt
Romney for the simple fact they will not be part of electing the member of a
satanic cult whose influence as the President of the United States will
cause many people to seek out and join the Mormon cult,  resulting in them
dying and burning in hell for all eternity.  This is not about Mitt Romney
being the President, this is about the eternal souls of men who will end up
following the lies of Joseph Smith and the Mormon cult and perish for all
eternity.  I am also calling on Mitt  Romany to stop lying and deceiving
people that he believes in God, Jesus, and the Bible, and tell people the
god he believes in used to be a human being who evolved into his status as a
god as he plans to one day, that his jesus is not deity but a created being
who can't save your soul, and the Bible is imperfect and his final authority
are the writings of Joseph Smith.

"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by
the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel- which is really
no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and
are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from
heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him
be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If
anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him
be eternally condemned! Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of
God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I
would not be a servant of Christ.  Paul Called by God I want you to know,
brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I
did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it
by revelation from Jesus Christ."  Galatians 1:6-12
