Mormons and the “Equality” Deception: It’s Not Just Politics Anymore
1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you my servants, concerning the parable of the wheat and of the tares:
2 Behold, verily I say, the field was the world, and the apostles were the sowers of the seed;
3 And after they have fallen asleep the great persecutor of the church, the apostate, the whore, even Babylon, that maketh all nations to drink of her cup, in whose hearts the enemy, even Satan, sitteth to reign—behold he soweth the tares; wherefore, the tares choke the wheat and drive the church into the wilderness.
4 But behold, in the last days, even now while the Lord is beginning to bring forth the word, and the blade is springing up and is yet tender
5 Behold, verily I say unto you, the angels are crying unto the Lord day and night, who are ready and waiting to be sent forth to reap down the fields;
6 But the Lord saith unto them, pluck not up the tares while the blade is yet tender (for verily your faith is weak), lest you destroy the wheat also.
7 Therefore, let the wheat and the tares grow together until the harvest is fully ripe; then ye shall first gather out the wheat from among the tares, and after the gathering of the wheat, behold and lo, the tares are bound in bundles, and the field remaineth to be burned.
To explain the parable of the Wheat and Tares is pretty simple. Wheat is the nourishing staple grass which is full of protein and vitamins and sustains life. Tares are noxious weeds identical to wheat when in their early stages. The tares are not differentiated until they are almost ripe and so can only be weeded out once they have grown up among the wheat stalks. Wicked people who cleave to the false doctrines of the world–Socialism, homosexual marriage, etc–have been raised up in the Church alongside those who are faithful to Jesus Christ and His true and eternal doctrines which comprise the Plan of Salvation. Faithful and humble saints, the wheat, will not recognize the corrupt and worldly among them, the tares, until they are fully ripe. Then the church will, must, be cleansed of its wicked elements before the Lord will return to Earth to claim His people and build His kingdom.
A patch of particularly toxic tares exists in their full array of colors today within the LDS Church, and unfortunately some wheat is becoming entangled in their poisonous vines. “Mormons for Equality” is not affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), but is a growing movement of church members who are active within their congregations, and who advocate for every form of sexual wickedness imaginable, disguised as “Christian love.” Their website, which is expertly executed, even goes so far as to use the same look and letter fonts used by lds.org.
The problem is not that Mormons for Equality exists, the problem is that many choice and well-intentioned members of the Mormon Church are hopping aboard this wagon load of tares. The leaders of the LDS Church rarely take sides on political issues and warn local bishops and members not to preach party politics from the pulpit. Resources garnered from its faithful member through tithes and offerings are allocated for building temples and meeting houses, funding missions, and supplying the great global humanitarian effort of the Church. California’s Proposition 8 battle was the most famous exception to this rule. The present situation illustrates that this division within the Mormon Church is not just about politics anymore. With public sentiment softening to the notion that a man can be a wife and a woman can be a husband, and the “Harry Reid” ilk of Mormon emboldened by the cultural swing to the dark side, the Church finds its members at odds with one another over God’s most basic moral commandments.
Homosexuals and the Democrats have taken one of the most grievous Biblical sins, which Jehovah Himself refers to as an ‘abomination,’ and marketed it as a right. Guilt and shame are used to convince those who oppose it on moral grounds that doing so is in itself immoral and against the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The practitioners of sin, homosexuals and others with perverted sexual proclivities, have changed the language labeling themselves using acronyms, and calling their decadent sexual arrangements “civil unions” and “marriage.” And despite the clear condemnation of homosexuality–among other vile sexual sins–within the Bible, it’s been insinuated into every level of society, including the leadership and teachings of many major Christian sects.
- Lev. 18:22, Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
- Lev. 20:13, If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
- I Corin. 8:9-10, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
- 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
- Romans 1: 26-27, For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
- 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
A Warning from the Children of Israel
During the 400 some years the Israelites spent in Egypt–many of which were in slavery–their religious doctrines and traditions became somewhat intermingled with those of the polytheistic Egyptians. Though slaves to the Egyptian state, they enjoyed meager security and an assurance that they would be fed. They became assimilated with their oppressors. Moses was chosen to take the Children of Israel out of Egypt and to the promised land. But the first generation, who had been raised up alongside Egyptian culture and religious practices, and having regressed spiritually during its captivity, struggled not only with the uncertainty of liberty, but with their own religious beliefs. For forty years they wandered until that first generation of escapees was virtually wiped out, and the next generation who had been raised in the adversity of the wilderness, but being inculcated with sound and consistent teachings from the religion of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, eventually found themselves worthy to enter the Promised Land.
Latter-day Saints and other Christians, Jews, and people of other faiths which have Biblical foundations, have intermingled too much with the world, and many doctrines have become corrupted. Even when church leaders are unwavering in their adherence to doctrine, divisions within the flocks have adopted ideologies contrary to God’s eternal truth and His plan for mankind. Faithful, kind, people, even those with scriptural educations, are falling one, by one, family by family, flock by flock, for the lie that homosexuality is equivalent to the holy covenant of matrimony between an Adam and an Eve.
Mormons, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, beware. No church is immune to those powers trying to destroy churches from within. When the doctrines of false religions pollute the absolute Word of God, the people are deceived. I don’t believe this time that God will give us forty years in the wilderness to pull our act together.
