LDS Church Members Leaving in “Droves”

18 October

salt-lake-templeYears ago I woke from a vivid dream one night that caused me to get up and start praying straightway. Many of us have had similar experiences in life I’m sure, but this one dream was so short and detailed I still remember it today some 15+ years later.  When I got to work later that day I told Ed about it (I was working at the Saints Alive Ministry office at the time).

I dreamt the walls of the Salt Lake Temple crumbled to the ground and as they fell people came rushing out escaping death.

Today I was reminded of that experience when I read an article on the blog ofMormon Chronicles. The Church can say what they want about their membership numbers, but I challenge them on this issue.  According to Mormon Chronicles which is a pro-Mormon blog created to bring the truth to light while staying Mormon reports the Church is hemorrhaging members and that they’re leaving in “droves”.

According to one top LDS official (Marlin Jensen) they haven’t seen a mass exodus like this since the days of Kirtland, Ohio when the Church was at a crisis point because of Smith’s failed banking schemes.

Today Mormons are leaving not because of what the Church has done, but what it hasn’t done.

They’ve not been completely truthful about the polygamy issue and the Book of Abraham. When the results of a survey were complete asking members why they left the Church the top reasons were spoke volumes. They weren’t leaving because they got their feelings hurt or because they couldn’t live up to the standards of the Church. They left because of the lies.

While this report is over a year old it said the Church was claiming 14 million but in reality that number is closer to around 5 million who are actual members of the Church.  This isn’t the model of “the fastest growing church”!

We’re seeing these numbers firsthand here at the ministry!

This week alone we’ve seen two people who are leaving the Church for Jesus and another person who wants to leave, but is wanting some guidance because his wife and children are heavily involved.  Please, pray for these three people as they begin their new lives in the Lord and begin meeting other Christians who will be role models for them!  We’re excited for them and so very grateful for God’s mercy!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

P.S. Please note that I don’t endorse staying in the Mormon Church even when you know the truth about its practices. You can’t be a Mormon and a Christian at the same time. You can’t “infiltrate” to try and spread the gospel while praying to a false god and taking oaths to that god.  The best thing to do is to get out, make a confession of Christ and help them from the outside.

    Duane Erickson, a former member of the LDS Church, but I was baptized member of Jesus’s real church in the beginning; then CONFIRMED a member of another organization, the LDS Church. I am an inventor and Researcher into Man’s Beginnings. The Foundation of my research is those histories Joseph Smith pirated from what the God Jesus provided in these the Latter-Days. Joseph then called himself the “Author” and “Profiteer” (Owner), of those histories that the God Jesus had provided for mankind. Separating myself from what has taken place from Joseph Smith on, concentrating purely upon those histories; . EVERYTHING MAKE’S SENSE WITHOUT ANY MYSTERIES. I now know what is just ahead of us, I know where to be living and how to sustain life during the coming cleansing. And I would like to share it, FREE.

    Hello Duane Erickson
    I was a member many decades ago and during that time my desire to know the truth of what was going on in this earth increased greatly. Today, after 30+ years of research and work on a book that is now so voluminous it has been split into two separate books. Though there are still work needed to reach completion the major part is finished, but, needs editing. Half of the work is a time line tracking Israel and associated major events beginning with the Exodus and ending on the far side of the Millennium. It would be of interest to me to sit face to face with you and investigate this topic, however I am in my 70’s and unable to travel far. I live in Florida.

    I joined the church 40 years ago and to witness Satan working so hard on the Latter-day Saints is evidence to me that this church is the real deal and the true church that Christ established when he was on the earth which includes a Prophets and Apostle, the Priesthood, Temples, etc.. I’ve seen miracles and have a firm testimony through prayer and the power of the Holy Ghost that this is His Church.

      Nancy,
      How is it you see Satan working so hard on the Church? By exposing the truth about some of the things the church leaders either don’t want to talk about, lie about, brush under the rug, or worse yet say was just fine and perfectly normal (like polygamy)?

      I agree Satan is a work on the Church but not in the same way as you. He’s a work in leading hearts away from God, in making people dig their heels in the ground and refuse to hear the truth about Church. Your 8th Article of Faith says you believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, but the Bible to be the word of God only as far as it’s translated correctly.

      So how far is that exactly? This could mean anything and gives Mormonism a wide berth to be able to have any non-biblical doctrine it wants, and then claim any true biblical doctrine wasn’t translated correctly.

      What sort of religion that claims to be Christain would denounce the Bible? This sounds like the work of Satan to me. – Melissa Grimes
