Joseph Smith and the past

Joseph Smith and the people he spiritually led were desciminated against.

What I have learned is that Mormons are in fact Christians. Joseph Smith was a prophet contacted by God and that is not unlike what I have seen in other Christian faiths. In the Catholic Church there have been sitings of the blessed Virgin Mary. Many recent.

I know that it is hard for some Christians to accept Mormons as Christian but at this time in my study I see little dramatic difference.

Follow Christ. That is the bottom line.

I continue my path towards priesthood and mormon education.

Happiness is...

...Finding that second wife, accepted by all in the family, and watching the love grow day by day.

I am engaged to a wonderful girl. She has been supportive and loving. She is going to be my second wife. I think now that I have another wonderful soul to take with me through life.

We are looking at March. She is skilled. She is sewing her own dress for the wedding. Her mother and she have teamed up on this. I know her parents are excited but it hardly measures up to what we are feeling now.

I feel giddy. My first wife looks at me and chuckles. She thinks I am funny.

As for the journey I am on studying the mormon faith, it continues. I am reading. I am learning. There is a great deal of information to be covered and learned.

Growing day by day.

Repulsed by 'Christians'

Well, I have seen the bigotry against Mormon faith. I now have an IDEA of what John Smith experienced from other alledgedly Christian faiths towards Mormonism.

Do you know what triggered this? I asked some alledged Christian followers on the pro Christian Polygamy site a question. This site is proports to be a site for Christians who support polygamy. They invoke the name of Christ to promote this cause. Yet they charge you an exhorbitant rate and heavily advertise that you spend even more. So I paid them 30 pieces of, the fee they requested that is...and joined. I found self righteous narcissistic bigotry.

I was banned from posting because I tried to post a web page that addressed religious tolerance to those who were calling Mormons (all +12 million of them) cultist. Now this was a sad day for christianity. I know not all Christians are schemers and sinner like in this site, but to call Mormons cultist?

Now let's see. In a cult, if you put out a dissenting or different view you are either admonished or kicked out. If you do not follow THEIR party line, same thing happens. This has happened to me on this alledgedly Christian site.

Who is the cult here? The answer is clear.

Not mad at this site. Instead, I PITTY this site and the followers of this cult leader. I think since they breached their contract with me, I should be refunded. Since this sight is more about money than pro-polygamy work, a refund will never happen.

A sad day for Christians (including Mormons, who are ALSO Christians). A SAD, SAD day.

on my own...

Well, I lost a teacher. Like MOST mormon fundamentalists, I am now on my own.

No matter, God decides my path and that will happen not for the weakness of men, but for the strength of God.

I am looking at the mormon faith. It is very complex.

Learning from the independents and on my own might be a better, less biased way to reach my personal goal of closeness with God.

I have to say one thing. I have not in my limited experience seen any real cohesion.

I am looking at different independent communities. I may find more knowledge, and the courage to teach it, there.

My journey continues.

I am looking at a lot of what John Smith wrote. It must have been overwhelming to get all this information. I guess that the context of the time in which he received all this information is not too apparent.

My path towards mormonism will be a fundamental change to my life. I see, already, the bigotry of some in the other christian faiths showing up. I also see a lot of the disinformation that has been placed out there to disuade others from learning about fundamental mormonism. This is parallel to the protestant disinformation I saw about Catholicism years ago.

Oh the flaws of man.

One thing I also saw in my studies was a man who uses the cause of plural marriage and the name of God for personal purposes. I am saddened this is happening in the world.

The rode to darkness is littered with the souls of those using Gospel and God for profit.

May God have mercy. May he lead me down the path of his way. May he continue my learning.
