OK it was a leading question, BECAUSE EVERY one of my hard lined, and even moderate lined, Christian people I've met, go rigidly against Mormanism at the very mention. In fact, you almost never even have to ask their opinion,,,they explode with it! I'm talking about the years and decades BEFORE politics were involved. Has God changed His mind? Having said that, can these rightie, so called Christians here, defy/deny/reject their God, who listens to everything, by not giving an automatic yes answer to the cult? If not, then what does that say about their personal faith???sid

I agree, that many regular Christians consider LDS a cult. By 'regular,' I mean not necessarily fundamentalist.

However, it should also be noted that a fairly large fringe in the Protestant evangelical or Pentacostalist sects regard Catholicism in the same light (or worse).

First off ... they are Mormons, not Mormans.

Second ... speaking only for myself, I don't consider them to any more of a cult than the followers of any other organized mainstream religion.

Third ... followers of Obama claiming someone else belongs to a cult is simply precious.

How does someone make sure something is properly "burried?"

Are special tools required?

Would one need a licensed contractor ... or is it a DIY type job?

Southern Baptist Leader Calls Beck Rally a "Scandal" Driven by the Spirit of the Antichrist
Submitted by Kyle Mantyla on August 30, 2010 - 1:33pm

Russell Moore is Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice-President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and he does not approve of all those self-proclaimed Christians who are disgracing their faith by aligning themselves with the false and dangerous teachings of a Mormon like Glenn Beck:

A Mormon television star stands in front of the Lincoln Memorial and calls American Christians to revival. He assembles some evangelical celebrities to give testimonies, and then preaches a God and country revivalism that leaves the evangelicals cheering that they've heard the gospel, right there in the nation's capital.

The news media pronounces him the new leader of America's Christian conservative movement, and a flock of America's Christian conservatives have no problem with that.

If you'd told me that ten years ago, I would have assumed it was from the pages of an evangelical apocalyptic novel about the end-times. But it's not. It's from this week's headlines. And it is a scandal.

...

To Jesus, Satan offered power and glory. To us, all he needs offer is celebrity and attention.

Mormonism and Mammonism are contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. They offer another Lord Jesus than the One offered in the Scriptures and Christian tradition, and another way to approach him. An embrace of these tragic new vehicles for the old Gnostic heresy is unloving to our Mormon friends and secularist neighbors, and to the rest of the watching world. Any "revival" that is possible without the Lord Jesus Christ is a "revival" of a different kind of spirit than the Spirit of Christ (1 Jn. 4:1-3).

For the record, in citing 1 John 4:1-3, Moore is saying that Beck's effort to unleash revival in America is operating under the spirit of the Antichrist:

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

I guess I should also point out that Moore's piece was posted on the American Family Association's OneNewNow website, so it seems as if the AFA is not particularly comfortable with Beck's Mormonism either.

UPDATE: I see that Al Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has Tweeted his support for Moore's article.

Mine haven't but that doesn't mean there are not believers out there that evolve in their interpretation of the Word. All of a sudden it is becoming chic for some believers to preach that there really is no Hell. Has God changed his mind about Hell just because there are people here on Earth that refer to themselves as Christians yet preach against what the Bible says?

Actually, if we wanted to be technical, any and all religions could be considered a cult. I wrote a paper once outlining when Christianity was beginning in its formation, and placing it in today's setting I made the contention that it would be looked at as a cult, and that Jesus himself would likely be considered a wackjob cult leader in today's society.
