Christianity Corrupt as Hell
John Taylor, Journal of Discourses 6:167; “There is not nation now that acknowledges that hand of God; there is not a king, potentate, nor ruler that acknowledges his jurisdiction. We talk about Christianity, but it is a perfect pack of nonsense. Men talk about civilization; but I do not want to say much about that, for I have seen enough of it. Myself and hundreds of the Elders around me have seen its pomp, parade, and glory; and what is it? It is a sounding brass and a tinkling symbol; it is as corrupt as hell; and the Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work that the Christianity of the nineteenth century.”
Acts 5:41-42; “And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. 42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”
What an awful thing to say about the body of Christ. May God have mercy and open their eyes. Jesus would never lie to us.
He promised us the gates of hell would not prevail. I always share that with the Mormons who knock on my door as it gives them something to think about after they leave and it’s easy to remember because it rhymes. Matt. 16:18.
In our little series of these Mormon Dilemmas and our look at what Mormons think of Christianity, I ask you that you pray for their hearts to be softened.
