President Trump celebrates Mormon settlers on Pioneer Day

By Thomas Burr July 24, 2018

“Washington • President Donald Trump offered his “best wishes” to Utahns celebrating Pioneer Day on Tuesday [July 24], extolling the Mormons who escaped persecution to take on a challenging and dangerous trek to find a new home.

“Our nation honors the ingenuity, industry, and unwavering commitment to faith of all those who endured frontier hardships,” the White House said Tuesday. …“Fleeing persecution… “Their stories and accomplishments are lasting reminders of the importance of religious freedom and the enduring strength and spirit of the American people…”

1 John 4:1 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

If I could send a message to President Trump, it’d be for him to read 1stJohn 4:1, and to brush up on American history. It’d take all of five minutes to gain a better understanding of true Mormonism. If by some odd chance he’d ever see this blog, here are two quick pieces of info to get started.

Brief History of Mormonism (See Foundation of Mormonism Series)

Joseph Smith’s Violent Behavior (See Historical Events in Mormonism)

Long story short, they were booted out for polygamy which they felt should’ve been a religious freedom, for declaring martial law which is treason, and riot. Today we call those things terrorism. See The Final Week of Jesus & the Final Week of Joseph Smith.

Melissa e-mailed and asked me for my thoughts on Mr. Trump’s comments about Mormonism, and Utah. For the sake of time, I’m diverting to the articles mentioned above.

When I asked her the same question, she gave me the answer I gave to her. Hmmm…great minds think alike! I do admit that I also told her it’s better for a fool to keep his mouth shut, than to open it and remove all doubt. That too, would be a good idea.

Pray for the POTUS to brush up on American history, and of course, our country as well!

With Love in Christ;
