“The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association removed language labeling Mormonism a “cult” from its website after the famed preacher met with Republican nominee Mitt Romney last week and pledged to help his presidential campaign.”
Yup, so in order to promote the Republican Party, an Evangelical group decides Mormonism is not a cult. Clear demonstration of putting politics over the Bible.
A spokesman for BGEA said, “”Our primary focus at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has always been promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. . . We removed the information from the website because we do not wish to participate in a theological debate about something that has become politicized during this campaign.”
This is why I refrain from participating in politics. It puts secondary things of first importance.
Here are some of the views of Mormonism and you can decide if Billy Graham perhaps might want to retire:
–Claim to have the priesthood of Aaron and Melchizadek—given to Smith and Crowdery by John the Baptist in 1829
–Mormonism denies the unity of the One God and ascribes to several gods. These gods have spirit children who take on bodies, we can then become gods as well. God is a resurrected man who once lived on this earth, thus God is not omnipresent.
—Gods are polygamous to create their spirit children.
—Jesus and Lucifer are brothers.
—No virgin birth, God the resurrected Father had sex with Mary to produce Jesus. This was the same “man/god” that had sex with Eve, “one of his wives.”
–Indians, blacks and those with dark skin were cursed by God. New revelation in 1978 changed this belief.
—Christ’s blood does not atone for all sin, need to shed your own for full atonement (Young).
–When Christ returns the Jews will be gathered to Palestine and the Mormons to Missouri. The Ten Lost Tribes will be restored—they now live in a warm country beyond the North Pole.
—Believe in three separate heavens. Heathens go in the lowest heaven, Christians and not so good mormons go in second heaven and good Mormons go to the top heaven. Top heaven has three parts too—top tier is for those who have achieved godhood, which you can work towards while there.
