I love it when the Lord allows me to see more of Him and know more of Him.  Today notice that between all the busy-ness of what the Mormons have to say about Jesus that sandwiched between their rhetoric is the futile attempt at sounding Christian.  What is so incredible about it is their claim that Jesus was chosen to be the Savior!

“We affirm, on the authority of Holy Scripture, that the Being who is known among men as Jesus of Nazareth, and by all who acknowledge His Godhood as Jesus the Christ, existed with the Father prior to birth in the flesh; and that in the preexistent state He was chosen and ordained to be the one and only Savior and Redeemer of the human race. Foreordination implies and comprises preexistence as an essential condition; therefore scriptures bearing upon the one are germane to the other; and consequently in this presentation no segregation of evidence as applying specifically to the preexistence of Christ or to His foreordination will be attempted.”  James E.
