Moroni for Your Christmas Tree

18 December

Melissa sent me an e-mail with a link to the online Deseret Bookstore Christmas decoration section:

moroni-the-golden-calf-of-mormonismMy first reaction when I saw this golden Moroni tree topper was the story of the Israelites making themselves a golden calf to worship while waiting for Moses to come down from the mountain.

I don’t know about anyone else and what they put on top of their trees.  My family has traditionally put an angel on ours symbolizing the angels who declared the birth of our Lord.

While the Christmas tree symbolizes many things we found ourselves sad for the Mormons who can’t seem to escape their religion even at one of the most holy Christian days of the year.

    They don’t realize that this IS a ‘golden calf’-sort-of-thing. That is the sad part. If only the Mormon people would stop accepting things blindly, then perhaps they would open their Bibles to the real Christmas story. Instead of the false BOM and the Moroni story, then they would see Jesus.

      No, it isn’t a ‘golden calf’ sort of thing at all. In reality, Moroni is a real angel and he stands atop of L.D.S. Temples always facing east to sound a trumpet that CHRIST will return at His Second Coming. It is not Moroni or Jospeh Smith or any other prophet we members of the Church worship. Ever. It is and always will be Jesus Christ. Just as an angel lead the way to the baby Jesus, Moroni does the exact same, making him just as relevant and appropriate to be on top of a CHRISTmas tree. Go to http://www.lds.org to learn the actual truth about the one and only church on this earth that contains the FULLNESS of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. Satan has deceived many such as the person who wrote this article to lead others from the actual truth. Rely on God through prayer to guide you to truth, not apostates or those who never truly read the Book of Mormon and investigated this Church.

      People shouldn’t talk about things they don’t understand. This is still America. We can do and believe in whatever we want. If you actually knew anything about our religion you would understand that our religion revolves around Christ. The book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. And just like the Bible which we also believe in, the Book of Mormon has books in it written by Prophets. Can I suggest that you do actual research on something before you spew your opinion of the matter out. Our church is actually called , The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The term Mormons is a derogatory name given to us when the early pioneers were being killed and persecuted. Please be more respectful to us. Thank you.

    An angel announcing the return of the savior. I love it! At the time of year when we celebrate the birth of Christ we can also be reminded that he lives and will return. I find no idolatry in it at all and I would love to have one.

    Jesus Christ will return and Angel Moroni is announcing that. Preach love instead of criticizing other religions. Learn more this wonderful Gospel and about what the Mormons believe, we believe in GOD, JESUS CHRIST, They love me and you. We are guided also by the Bible and the Book of Mormon reinforces every word contained in the Bible, that Jesus will come back.

      Thanks for defending our Christian beliefs. Based on the negative post, it’s obvious people have no clue what we believe. If they only took the time to learn they would find we are not so different as they think we are. Too sad for them.

    Sad to see so much hate toward Mormons. Whether it’s right or wrong, you people and your hate for someone else’s beliefs is very disturbing. You have no right to judge another. That is God’s job and I’m sure as long as we all believe than we should respect each other. Mormon are not bad people and you should have this type of religious hate removed. Stop judging people.
