Just a day ago we posted a very important article on the Creeds of Christianity and from our studies we learned about the definition of Christianity and what the duties of a Christian entail.
We don’t pray to foreign gods, we don’t worship foreign gods and we certainly don’t acknowledge foreign gods.
Imagine my surprise when perusing the LDS website and came upon a story about an interfaith prayer group who banded together to pray for rain. Sigh…
The Church has proudly stuck her chest out with great zeal in showcasing they can accept everyone even to the point of endorsing this behavior by posting it without remorse on their website.
The truth is that God has told us to come out from amongst the heathens and false gods and worship Him exclusively. 2 Cor 6:17 Again, this goes back to monotheism. You don’t have to interact and participate with others who worship false gods in their prayer services. Christians are in the world, but not of the world as Jesus told us in John 15:19.
You can treat others with respect and dignity and not worship their gods all at the same time – remember, Jesus is our example!
I’m also wondering why the Church has contradicted itself again. Why have they embraced this interaction with outsiders when past and even present leaders have admonished its followers not to behave in this manner? Remember 1 Nephi 14:10 is still endorsed in their beloved Book of Mormon;
“And he said unto me: Behold there are save two churches only; the one is the church of the Lamb of God, and the other is the church of the devil; wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great church, which is the mother of abominations; and she is the whore of all the earth.”
California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas have all suffered through devastating effects of the extreme draught that’s been going on for a few years now. This dire need for rain can’t be overemphasized and as Christians we can and should come together and pray for the Lord to intervene. We know as God’s children we listens to our prayers and we can know with assurance He won’t let those prayers go unattended!
Traipsing outside the parameters our Loving God has set for us is folly indeed and praying with others to their foreign gods is idolatry. Share with your Mormon friends and loved ones why this is far from “inspirational” as the Church labeled it to be and forbidden by the Lord.
With Love in Christ;
1 Cor 1:18
