The Mormons have alot going against them, like, they worship a different Jesus than the one in the bible I read. More extensive lists on the problems with Mormonism can be found all over the web, like here: http://www.godandscience.org/cults/mormdiff.html
But Bashing Mormons isn't what I want to write about this morning...Once again, it's apostate churchianity that's the topic. With all the things the Mormon's have against them, they do this RIGHT...CHURCH LEADERSHIP. The Nicolaitan model, the one Jesus says He HATES is what 99.9% of so called christian churches embrace. The pastoral system is the lynchpin of that system. You know, the whole "clergy/laity" system. Please..someone show me in the bible where I'm a "layperson" while you're at it, pass me a barf bag....How do the Mormon's run their churches? Their ELDERS (not "pastors") ROTATE through the oversight role. Very Wise....
There are MANY problems with the pastoral system. Off the top of my head, Jesus saying He HATES the clergy/laity nicolaitan system probably qualifies as reason number 1. I wonder why Jesus HATES it? Hmmmm, perhaps of the pride and ego assiciated with today's one man pastoral shows? Perhaps because the system is idolatrous. Do the sheeple in many churches idolize their "pastor?" Of course they do! After all, he's got a doctorate degree! Many of these pastors make hollywood entertainers look unskilled. Then there's the whole idea of separation. Notice how in many churches ONE MAN (pastor) get's up on a RAISED PLATFORM to pontificate to the sheeple...I'm up here, you're down there, I'm sooooo holy, you're....whatever. Is the picture starting to come together? It's MUCH easier for satan to corrupt a one man show than to corrupt an entire body of elders. Pastor's consider themselves "christian LEADERS," but the last time I checked the sheep only followed one leader, that's Jesus, the head of the body. The bible says that elders OVERSEE, Elders don't LEAD anything. The bible says "my sheep know MY VOICE" and they will not follow someone else" EXACTLY.....
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
and the sheep FOLLOW HIM, followership implies leadership, the sheep FOLLOW JESUS, PERIOD.
Oh yea, did I mention that Mormon elders ARE NOT PAID? Oh boy, I can feel the hate coming from "pastors" now.........
I'm not here to bash or flash Mormonism. The topic here is wicked, apostate churchianity. Wake up, come out of the apostate babylonian form of christianity you've been sold. Learn to follow your Creator's voice again. When Jesus becomes your leader again, you won't have to worry about your leader being involved in another sexual scandal, another financial scandal, being in bed with the world, politicians and every other worthless wicked thing this world offers those who serve it. Come out of her brothers.....Grace and Peace
