No True Salvation for Ignorant

18 August

1 Corinthians 1:18-20 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Journal of Discourses 21:39 “Salvation, in its largest aspect, consists in the proportion of truth received; men and women only are saved in proportion to the truth which they appropriate. An ignorant man will only obtain the salvation which belongs to the ignorant.” – Henry W. Naisbitt, Salt Lake City, November 23, 1879

John 9:3 “Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”

Exodus 4:11 “And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the Lord?”

The song, ‘God’s Own Fool’ by Michael Card, came immediately to mind when I read Mr. Naisbitt’s insight of the Mormon god. How sad of a life Naisbitt must have lived, and those he imposed upon with his falsehoods.

Mormonism today still carries the torch of this outlandish philosophy. They work so hard, and get nowhere fast in believing Joe Smith’s lies. My mother’s hamster wheel of needless worry spins faster than what she can keep up with most days.

One has to wonder what their god thinks of people like the young man at my local grocery store.  ‘Mike’ is probably in his early 30’s. He talks a lot, and only speaks to himself in hushed whispers. No one knows what he says, but he’s eager to help at a moment’s notice to carry groceries, sweep floors, and even scrub toilets. When he bags your groceries he’ll never put more than two items in each bag, so when you get home you might find a loaf of bread in with the oversized bag of dog food. And it’s really okay! Would it be okay with the Mormon god?

When customers see ‘Mike’, I pray they see what I do, and that’s God.

Where is the imaginary bar of how much knowledge is sufficient to get into the highest Mormon heaven? Who determined its height? Could anyone really jump that high?

Lastly beloved…

Where is Jesus?

With Love in Christ;
