and to you other people, actually LEARN about our religion from one of OUR sources, not an anti-mormons. if you believe this crap, shame on you
this is why I hate religion.
At my church (I`m not Mormon) we actually read the Bible. And unlike M-ism we don`t have a council that decides on what to change every couple of years. We don`t preach against caffiene and then go buy pepsi either...
Yes, because no caffeine is official doctrine? I don`t recall that. There is nothing canonized about caffeine, alcohol and other drugs, yes, but having council about eating healthy is a bad thing, right?
And hate to break it to you, mormons DO read the bible. The book of mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The old testament is of Christ before his birth, the new testament is of Christ`s life and ministry. The book of mormon is a history and Christ`s ministry of a different people. It isn`t a NEW bible or any kind of replacement like everyone likes to believe.
just remember Jesus was a Jew.
and with Lucifer i think Anton Levey kinda got that under control i mean he makes Satan a mascot and way much better and cooler.
and im sick of this sexist crap. why dont the mormon women have multiple husbands?------------------------------------------because then she would be a WHORE
and this is actually THE most ridiculous thing i have ever seen. i think i can safely say that 99% of the things in this video are not true.if you want to know the truth of what we believe, talk to a missionary. this is really really dumb.and bias.
The people who teach it (missionaries, bishops, etc.) are very biased, and when you ask or bring up something they can`t answer, it`s always "It`s gods will." or "God works in mysterious ways."
I will say this though, a lot of mormon people are somewhat normal. Except they`re (in my opinion) a little overly cheery sometimes. But most of the people are nice to know, there are the occasional few that try to shove it down your throat. However for the most part, a majority of the people are easy to know and spend time with. The trick is to respect them, while not having to believe their religion.
If you blindly believe in what`s in this animation just because it`s so convenient, you are just a gullible bunch of sheep (and quite frankly incapable of handling today`s media ;) ). But then again, it`s religion we are talking about. The number one reliable source of hatred for centuries ...
It looks like people came to the US just to spread even more bullpoo religion than before in Europe.
This is the major reason wars are started. some people believe one thing and others persecute them. Is this what god has preached? come on people pull your heads out. People from around the world believe far fetched stuff, and any god who casts them out of his light is no god of mine.. PS you dont have to be religous to be spiritual<
Wow turns out Lucifer was already sporting his mighty colors even then as a fellow Mormon. Ok another thing, since when does Lucifer look a Beavis?
"Baby it`s time to have a one night stand to bring Jesus on this planet. Yeah you know how it works I knock on the door, ask for sex and you say how much"? One more thing, how are other religions abominations when theres not one legitimate reason here why colored people exist tod
Jesus was Black.
Cookii, sit down please.
And I suppose if you look at any religion in depth, it`s weird.I mean, Christiany - This REALLY AWESOME MAGIC GUY was born from a virgin!! Cool, right....Then he died.Oh yeah, but then he lived after he died. Cuz he`s just so magically awesome.
I dunno, let people believe what they want to believe. Even if it sounds like complete crap to you.
I like believing in this Super Magic Awesome Born-from-a-Virgin dude, and LDSs like believing in space-gods.
Does that mean I have to worship whats-his-face?
Or do I just have to use a different conditioner?
7. All religions are cults
8. They don`t stand before Joseph Smith at Judgement day.
BTW, I`m an ex-mormon. I don`t believe in any of it, but this movie was complete propaganda.
1.Mormons do believe that God and heaven are on Kolab.
2.The whole thing with the black skin being the neutral ones wasn`t official doctrine. Basically, some mormon guy who wasn`t a leader said that, so it was his opinion, not the church`s opinion.
3.Cain wasn`t cursed with black skin, he was cursed to live forever, and the black skin was a mark god gave him so people would have mercy on him.
4.Polygamy is part of the teachings, although, at the moment if you do, you will be excommunicated (kicked out) It`s something that is the way things should be, but we aren`t considered to be ready for it yet. (We also aren`t ready for communism, which is part of mormon doctrine)
5.Mormons don`t think Joseph Smith did more for us than Jesus. Joseph was a prophet, Jesus is our Savior.
6.Adam and Eve weren`t God and one of his wives, they were sent to earth just like us.
7.All religions are cu
Polygamy is not part of the Church anymore, and it hasn`t been for quite a long time. Even if it was, why is it so bad? What`s wrong with wanted to bang a new wife every other night? It`s not like those priests that bang little boys. I don`t see anyone getting offended by that.
Not much stranger than christianity. i love how after most of you bash this video, you`ll go to church tomorrow and hear the same s[h]it from someone else and it`ll seem totally normal.
name one time that a religion has done more good than it has done bad. in recent history almost every charitable help by the christian church is for the sole reason to recruit more members. all morality is naturally programmed into our heads, and we dont need a violent god to tell us what to do.
"We are of the opinion that The Godmakers relies heavily on appeals to fear, prejudice and other less worthy human emotions.... It appears to us to be a basically unfair and untruthful presentation of what Mormons really believe and practice."
The actual study finding is a lot more in depth and critical of the film. For the full finding go here.http://www.fairlds.org/The_God_Makers/ta...
For a point by point defense on the film please visit:
A lot. A hell of a lot.
I guess I never got far enough to learn the secret handshake and everything.
BTW.....It`s what`s in the underwear that makes it magic !!!!!!!
Now, I could rant and rave about what our church is about, but if you really want to know, you can just go ask one of the missionaries.
for all the people who discredit this video.....
I saw this movie a long time ago as part of an introduction to mormon theology. The guy showed us it not to make us hate mormonism but rather to get all the weird stuff out right up front.I have had several friends who are mormon and have actually sat down with the head of mormon missions for the schools in my home town. We talked about alot of stuff and talked particularly about these beliefs. It is true that mormons believed the stuff in this video. If you dont believe it go look up old teachings and speaches by Bringham Young and other mormon profits. and for those of you who say the mormons have changed their beliefs.... Well the same goes for my own religion. There was a time when many Christians drank and now most dont.
Does this mean that since his skin is now white, Micheal Jackson is now playing for the right team?
and as for this movie, I haven`t studied Mormonism, but from what this movie shows, Mormonism is about as credible as Scientology, minus the celebrities...
...lol...and how many history classes have you taken?
and ..what michaelcsr said is true. I`m not mormon...but I have family members who became so scared of what they learned that they up and moved away and have cut off all communication with their old LDS church. I`m not joking :) they haven`t even told me a lot of the stuff they found out and they`re..literaly (two 30 year old something parents with kids) afraid of being found.F*cked up.
and im sick of this sexist crap. why dont the mormon women have multiple husbands?
Sorry, the hyperlink thing is acting weird. Copy and paste, then. (That is if you really care enough, I`m probably just wasting my time.)
Just if anyone`s interested.
Yay for Southpark!
