Leviticus 19:31; “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”
Today our focus is on the spiritual discernment, or the lack thereof, in the LDS Church. Our first heads up about this came about when we discovered an LDS jewelry store selling replicas of several temple motifs that should cause great concern for any discerning Christian. We’re looking at a handful of those items to hopefully bring attention to the ungodly spiritual ramifications they have on the Mormon people.
We’re also asking our Christian readers to pray for those who might be thinking of purchasing these things, or if you know a Mormon, warn them of the dangers! Below are a few of the items we saw on their site.
How does this represent the Lord on His birthday?
The Nauvoo Legion was a paramilitary organization created by Joe Smith to defend the early Saints. Now, depending on which website you gather info from, the group was either an absolute survival necessity, or a beleaguered group of individuals who chose to inflict fear and mayhem, against the public at large.
You can read a short synopsis of each at The Annals of Iowa, and the Encyclopedia of Mormonism. If you believe historical accounts of independent sources, you’ll know Smith’s group was nothing but a group of thugs out to cause trouble for the locals.
Why would you want to wear something that represents murder and mayhem?
Why would you want to wear something that’s a sign of Satan around your neck?
Mormons reject the cross of Christ, but will wear inverted pentagrams. They’ve rejected the cross and even denounced it many times in talks. Their own canon also rejects it by announcing Jesus paid for sins in the Garden of Gethsemane. D&C 19:18
What purpose does this serve for you personally?
We noted the following info about Starstones in our article ‘Inverted Stained Glass Pentagrams’
Equating Jesus to a pentagram is just about as bad as it gets. My heart breaks for people like my mother who haven’t a clue about the meanings of the occult markings on the temples. The “saints” should only be looking to Jesus as their only source of power and revelation, not some twelve pointed star carved into the side of a building that hosts dead spirits.
As you’ll see below the meaning of stars always has to do with the spirit and elements of the earth – and this from the witch’s point of view!
“The Pentagram is a symbol of a star encased in a circle. Always with 5 points (one pointing upward), each has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. All these things contributive to life and are a part of each of us.”
Also see Wiki Occult Symbolism for further information on occult symbolism. Six pointed stars are known by the names of “Magan star” and the “Star of Remphan”.
“Stars are a Wicca symbol because they signify the unattainable wisdom of the Creatrix, which is attainable to those who study the esoteric arts.
Stars symbolize the potential of every being to reach Divinity, with all the wisdom and magickal Power that entails.”
The Holman Bible Dictionary points out that anything carved or otherwise representing something made by God is known as idolatry. “IDOL Physical or material image or form representing a reality or being considered divine and thus an object of worship. In the Bible various terms are used to refer to idols or idolatry: “image”, either graven (carved) or cast, “statue,” “abomination.” Both Testaments condemn idols, but with idols the Old Testament expresses more concern than the New, probably reflecting the fact that the threat of idolatry was more pronounced for the people of the Old Testament.”
The phrase, ‘hold to the rod’ is in reference to Joe Smith’s prophecy for David Whitmer to have faith in the powers of a magical divining rod. D&C 8:1-12 In this prophecy it’s referred to as the ‘gift of Aaron’. We spoke of this earlier when they were selling this ‘rod’ as a necklace charm, and now they’ve made a statue of it. Sigh…
Oh how we’re praying for those caught in the snares of this false god! If you know a Mormon, please, share these truths with them!
With Love in Christ;
