Warren Jeffs Guilty!
Warren Jeffs was found guilty of child rape yesterday in Texas and now we’re awaiting the sentencing phase. Jeffs is looking at 119 years in a federal prison for his filthy deeds.
Of course Jeffs was playing the “woe is me, I’m being persecuted” card and he finally got caught. The reality is that this has nothing to do with being persecuted. Being persecuted means that you’ve been unjustly tried based upon your good behavior and beliefs while not violating the law or the liberty of others.
The website of www.dictionary.com defines persecution this way:
“A program or campaign to exterminate, drive away, or subjugate a people because of their religion, race, or beliefs: the persecutions of Christians by the Romans”.
You cannot hide under the cloak of the 1st Amendment and cry persecution for raping little girls. Under the laws of the United States the 1st Amendment doesn’t shield you from unlawful acts. It doesn’t provide you with immunity for doing what you want no matter what your god says. Apparently the Texas law says the same thing. Here’s what ABC News reported:
“A sexual assault of a 12-year-old and 15-year-old girl has nothing whatsoever to do with religious persecution,” Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said today. “If anybody of any religious background comes to Texas and sexually assaults young girls, they are going to be investigated and prosecuted regardless of what their religious background is.” (1)
At the end of his closing arguments Jeffs said only one thing; “I am at peace”. His comments are indicative of someone who isn’t living in reality. Does this make him crazy? I don’t believe so. After working in ministry for 17 years and living as a Mormon for 30 years it tells me that he’s really no different than many of the Mormons I’ve encountered; polygamous and otherwise.
I’m begging the Mormons to take a close look at the teachings of your church and ask yourself; is this what God would want? And where did Jeffs get his ideas? He has 78 wives. How far off is he from Brigham Young? Well Young had 55 wives and the Church has named a university after him, has placed statues of him all over Utah, they’ve named cities and towns and their children after him. What’s the difference between Jeffs and Young or Jeffs and Smith?
I’ve written about the wives of Young and given comparisons between Smith and Jeffs on our site. I’m always begging the Mormon people to evaluate what’s going on here.
The horror these young girls have to live with for the rest of their lives cannot be understated. Having to live with this affects every single aspect of your life for as long as you live and the only way to be healed from all of this is through the supernatural healing powers of our Kinsman Redeemer, Jesus. Nothing short of Christ Jesus will suffice.
Pray, pray, pray, pray, and pray again for those caught in the snares of Mormonism as well as the FLDS communities.
With Love in Christ;
Jude 1:24-25; “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”

The definition of a destructive religious cult is like alcoholism-if alcohol controls you instead of the other way around you are an alcoholic.
If they try to ruin your reputation and break up your family for trying to get out then they are a cult!
Please examine the Jehovah’s Witnesses pedophiles go door to door and come on our property.
Many court documents and news events prove that Jehovah’s Witnesses suppress evidence when a child comes forward with allegations of molestation within the congregation.Whenever you surrender your logic and reason to anyone who asks you to trust them because they know better it’s possibly a cult.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….

The attributes of a psuedo-Christian cult…
Control over members
Claims to be the only true church
Minimizes the Bible as the true Word of God
Extra-biblical scriptures that contradict the Bible
Holds their teachings and “revelations” above scripture
Has a Prophet or leader that claims to be only mouthpiece for God
Humanizes God and Deifies man
Dilutes the Blood of Jesus
We have an article here on the site called Signs of a Cult but i can’t get the URL to operate properly in this reply so just go to our front page and in the drop down menu go to the article to check it out!
This has been going on too long, it’s a good start but our law enforcement has a long way to go.
When I was a kid I lived in Utah, and the Boy Scouts was taken over by Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church). This, so called religion, practices underage polygamy, they send the boy s off on missions to divide the underage sisters among the dirty old men of the clan. Now when these underage girls get pregnant, these same dirty old men, send them to the state to get their welfare checks . You should see some of the palace homes that are paid with welfare checks. By the way this is the newest religion that was created right here in United States of America.
When someone hides behind religion to do or say something that is wrong we should stand up and point it out (right the wrong).
the lds church started polygamy because joesph smith was a sexual pedafile as was brigham young and all the rest of them..the lds church say they dont do it any more but they lye..there are sevral men called to live polygamy under cover and only the leaders know who they are..john tayler said they wouild always have polygamy cause thats the only way a man can get to the celestual kingdom..and its part of the true churchs beliefs..they continue to deny it but polygamy goes on..thats why utah ealls more viagra than any other state in the usa..but we have more prophets to..thomas s monsen…warren jeffs elizabeth smarts kidnaper..allreds kingstons harmston..just to name a few..
