Don't think for
a minute that Islamic Fundamentalists have cornered the
market on religious fanaticism.
Mormon leaders tell the world that they have God's true
gosepl and that only they have the true words and teachings
of Jesus Christ. Thanks to Joseph Smith, Mormonism carries
the message of the "Living Christ" to all the world.
Here's what revealed Mormon scripture tells us about
Jesus think of non-believers?
84:114 "Nevertheless, let the bishop go unto the city
of New York, also to the city of Albany, and also to the
city of Boston, and warn the people of those cities with
the sound of the gospel, with a loud voice, of the desolation
and utter abolishment which await them if they do reject
these things (Mormonism)."
3 Nephi 20:17-20
about our time)"Thy hand shall be lifted up upon thine
adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off. And
I will gather my people together as a man gathereth his
sheaves into the floor. For I will make my people with
whom the Father hath covenanted, yea, I will make thy
horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass. And thou shalt
beat in pieces many people; and I will consecrate their
gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord
of the whole earth. And behold, I am he who doeth it.
And it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that the
sword of my justice shall hang over them at that day;
and except they repent it shall fall upon them, saith
the Father, yea, even upon all the nations of the Gentiles."
does Jesus love the children of God?
3 Nephi 9:3-8
from the Sky) "Behold, that great city Zarahemla have
I burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof. And behold,
that great city Moroni have I caused to be sunk in the
depths of the sea, and the inhabitants thereof to be drowned.
And behold, that great city Moronihah have I covered with
earth, and the inhabitants thereof... And behold, the
city of Gilgal have I caused to be sunk, and the inhabitants
thereof to be buried up in the depths of the earth; Yea,
and the city of Onihah and the inhabitants thereof, and
the city of Mocum and the inhabitants thereof, and the
city of Jerusalem and the inhabitants thereof; and waters
have I caused to come up in the stead thereof... And behold,
the city of Gadiandi, and the city of Gadiomnah, and the
city of Jacob, and the city of Gimgimno, all these have
I caused to be sunk, and made hills and valleys in the
places thereof; and the inhabitants thereof have I buried
up in the depths of the earth... And behold, that great
city Jacobugath, which was inhabited by the people of
king Jacob, have I caused to be burned with fire..."
Jesus want Mormons to die for the Church?
ye acurse, I will curse, and ye shall avenge me of mine
enemies. And my presence shall be with you even in avenging
me of mine enemies, unto the third and fourth generation
of them that hate me. Let no man be afraid to lay down
his life for my sake; for whoso layeth down his life for
my sake shall find it again. And whoso is not willing
to lay down his life for my sake is not my disciple."
arm shall be my arm, and I will be their shield and their
buckler; and I will gird up their loins, and they shall
fight manfully for me; and their enemies shall be under
their feet; and I will let fall the sword in their behalf,
and by the fire of mine indignation will I preserve them."
Jesus feel about killing for the cause?
1 Nephi 4:12-13
"And it came
to pass that the Spirit said unto me again: Slay him,
for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands; Behold
the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous
purposes. It is better that one man should perish than
that a nation should dwindle and perish in disbelief."
"And it came
to pass that Ammon, being filled with the Spirit of God,
therefore he perceived the thoughts of the king. And he
said unto him: Is it because thou hast heard that I defended
thy servants and thy flocks, and slew seven of their brethren
with the sling and with the sword, and smote off the arms
of love does Jesus give his prophets?
6 "Behold, thou art Nephi, and I am God. Behold, I declare
it unto thee in the presence of mine angels, that ye shall
have power over this people, and shall smite the earth
with famine, and with pestilence, and destruction, according
to the wickedness of this people."
prophets share the message of Jesus?
they did cry unto the people, saying: Why do you suffer
this man (Mormon Prophet) to revile against us? For behold
he (Mormon Prophet)
doth condemn all this people, even unto destruction; yea,
and also that these our great cities shall be taken from
us, that we shall have no place in them."
does Jesus love his missionaries?
"Yea, and thou hast also heard me when I have been cast
out and have been despised by mine enemies; yea, thou
didst hear my cries, and wast angry with mine enemies,
and thou didst visit them in thine anger with speedy destruction."
Jesus feel about Gentile non-believers?
"And it shall
come to pass also that the remnants who are left of the
land will marshal themselves, and shall become exceedingly
angry, and shall vex the Gentiles with a sore vexation.
And thus, with the sword and
by bloodshed the inhabitants of the earth shall mourn;
and with famine, and plague, and earthquake, and the thunder
of heaven, and the fierce and vivid lightning also, shall
the inhabitants of the earth be made to feel the wrath,
and indignation, and chastening hand of an Almighty God,
until the consumption decreed hath made a full fend of
all nations; That the cry of the saints, and of the ablood
of the saints, shall cease to come up into the ears of
the Lord of Sabaoth, from the earth, to be avenged of
Jesus do to those who don't accept Mormonism?
say unto you, that woe shall come unto the inhabitants
of the earth if they will not hearken unto my words; For
hereafter you shall be ordained and go forth and deliver
my words unto the children of men. Behold, if they will
not believe my words, they would not believe you, my servant
Joseph, if it were possible that you should show them
all these things which I have committed unto you. Oh,
this unbelieving and stiffnecked generation, mine anger
is kindled against them!"
"For I, the
Lord, have decreed in mine anger many destructions upon
the waters; yea, and especially upon these waters. Nevertheless,
all flesh is in mine hand, and he that is faithful among
you shall not perish by the waters. And again, verily
I say unto you, my servants, Sidney Rigdon, Joseph Smith,
Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, shall not open their mouths
in the congregations of the wicked until they arrive at
Cincinnati; And in that place they shall lift up their
voices unto God against that people, yea, unto him whose
anger is kindled against their wickedness, a people who
are well-nigh ripened for destruction."
27 "And if the time comes that the voice of the people
doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments
of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will
visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto
visited this land."
2 Nephi 5:
25 "And the Lord God said unto me: They shall be a scourge
unto thy seed, to stir them up in remembrance of me; and
inasmuch as they will not remember me, and hearken unto
my words, they shall scourge them even unto destruction."
"And of tenets
thou shalt not talk, but thou shalt declare repentance
and faith on the Savior... Behold, this is a great and
the last commandment which I shall give unto you concerning
this matter; for this shall suffice for thy daily walk,
even unto the end of thy life. And misery thou shalt receive
if thou wilt slight these counsels, yea, even the destruction
of thyself and property."
1 Nephi 11:
36 "And it came to pass that I saw and bear record, that
the great and spacious building was the pride of the world;
and it fell, and the fall thereof was exceedingly great.
And the angel of the Lord spake unto me again, saying:
Thus shall be the destruction of all nations, kindreds,
tongues, and people, that shall fight against the twelve
(Mormon) apostles of the Lamb."
1 Ne. 18:
20 "And there was nothing save it were the power of God,
which threatened them with destruction, could soften their
hearts; wherefore, when they saw that they were about
to be swallowed up in the depths of the sea they repented
of the thing which they had done, insomuch that they loosed
Jesus do to women who don't agree with polygamy?
"And I command mine handmaid, Emma Smith, to abide and
cleave unto my servant Joseph, and to none else. But if
she will not abide this commandment (polygamy) she shall
be destroyed, saith the Lord; for I am the Lord thy God,
and will destroy her if she abide not in my law (polygamy).
But if she will not abide this commandment (polygamy),
then shall my servant Joseph do all things for her, even
as he hath said; and I will bless him and multiply him
and give unto him an hundredfold in this world, of fathers
and mothers, brothers and sisters, houses and lands, wives
and children, and crowns of eternal lives in the eternal

D&C 5: 19
"For a desolating scourge shall go forth among the inhabitants
of the earth, and shall continue to be poured out from
time to time, if they repent not, until the earth is empty,
and the inhabitants thereof are consumed away and utterly
destroyed by the brightness of my coming."
D&C 112: 24
"Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants
of the earth, a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day
of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation;
and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of
the earth, saith the Lord."
D&C 56:1 "Hearken,
O ye people who profess my name, saith the Lord your God;
for behold, mine anger is kindled against the rebellious,
and they shall know mine arm and mine indignation, in
the day of visitation and of wrath upon all the nations."
the decree hath gone forth from the Father that they shall
be gathered in unto one place upon the face of this land,
to prepare their hearts and be prepared in all things
against the day when tribulation and desolation are sent
forth upon the wicked.
9 For the
hour is nigh and the day soon at hand when the earth is
ripe; and all the proud and they that do wickedly shall
be as stubble; and I will burn them up, saith the Lord
of Hosts, that wickedness shall not be upon the earth;
10 For the
hour is nigh, and that which was spoken by mine (Mormon)
apostles must be fulfilled; for as they spoke so shall
it come to pass;
"And the time speedily cometh that great things are to
be shown forth unto the children of men; But without faith
shall not anything be shown forth except desolations upon
Babylon (non-mormons), the same which has made all nations
drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And
there are none that doeth good except those who are ready
to receive the fulness of my gospel (Mormons), which I
have sent forth unto this generation."
2 Nephi 26:
6 "And they shall be visited with thunderings, and lightnings,
and earthquakes, and all manner of destructions, for the
fire of the anger of the Lord shall be kindled against
them, and they shall be as stubble, and the day that cometh
shall consume them, saith the Lord of Hosts."
want us to respect other people?
D&C 52: 42
"And thus, even as I have said, if ye are faithful ye
shall assemble yourselves together to rejoice upon the
land of Missouri, which is the land of your inheritance,
which is now the land of your enemies."
Jesus do to make sure Zion comes?
D&C 105: 15
"Behold, the destroyer I have sent forth to destroy and
lay waste mine enemies; and not many years hence they
shall not be left to pollute mine heritage, and to blaspheme
my name upon the lands which I have consecrated for the
gathering together of my saints."
"And go ye straightway unto the land of my vineyard, and
redeem my vineyard; for it is mine; I have bought it with
money. Therefore, get ye straightway unto my land; break
down the walls of mine enemies; throw down their tower,
and scatter their watchmen. And inasmuch as they gather
together against you, avenge me of mine enemies, that
by and by I may come with the residue of mine house and
possess the land."
67 And the
glory of the Lord shall be there, and the terror of the
Lord also shall be there, insomuch that the wicked will
not come unto it, and it shall be called Zion.
70 And it
shall be said among the wicked: Let us not go up to battle
against Zion, for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible;
wherefore we cannot stand.
72 And now
I say unto you, keep these things from going abroad unto
the world until it is expedient in me, that ye may accomplish
this work in the eyes of the people, and in the eyes of
your enemies, that they may not know your works until
ye have accomplished the thing which I have commanded
73 That when
they shall know it, that they may consider these things.
74 For when
the Lord shall appear he shall be terrible unto them,
that fear may seize upon them, and they shall stand afar
off and tremble.
75 And all
nations shall be afraid because of the terror of the Lord,
and the power of his might. Even so. Amen.
2 Nephi 23:9
"Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath
and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and he shall
destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
seeing that I, the Lord, have decreed all these things
upon the face of the earth, I will that my saints should
be assembled upon the land of Zion; And that every man
should take righteousness in his hands and faithfulness
upon his loins, and lift a warning voice unto the inhabitants
of the earth; and declare both by word and by flight that
desolation shall come upon the wicked.
2 Nephi 13:17
"Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of
the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover
their secret parts."
to Mormon scripture, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ
are perfect beings. And according to that same scripture,
they are full of anger, hate and vengence.
The best Mormonism
can say to explain it, is that Jesus Christ and God hate
sin, but not the sinner. But this is not reflected in
their scripture, where we read about Jesus bragging about
destroying city after city and Joseph Smith receiving
countless revelations to preach terror and destruction.
When it comes
to theology, there is an evil duality in Mormon scripture.
Apparently God loves the faithful, protects the obedient
and guides his followers. On the other hand, we see overwhelming
examples that he also loves to threaten the wicked with
violence, destroy the unbeliever and justify his followers'
Mormon scripture makes it clear that the Mormon image
of God is unethical, imoral and no more worthy of our
affection than a petty tyrant.
There is a
concept of perfect compassion, perfect forgiveness and
perfect peace, but it cannot be found in Mormon doctrine
