Mormonism: America’s Islam

Last week we noted on Glenn Beck’s Mormon faith was becoming a real scandal for some conservative Christian activists, with Brannon Howse of WorldView Weekend leading the charge against Religious Right leaders who have been linking arms with him.

Howse has been on a crusade about this for a week now and now it has come full circle as he dedicated his program yesterday to exposing how Mormonism is just like Islam:

“Mormonism, America’s Islam” is a book written in 1912. What do Mormons and Muslims have in common? Similarities of Muhammad and Joseph Smith: – Visited by an angel. – Given visions. – Told that no true religion existed on the earth. – Was sent to restore the long lost faith as the one true religion. – A book produced from their teachings claimed to be “inspired by God.” – Each claimed to be illiterate or uneducated and used this as proof the book was inspired. – Each claimed the Bible was lost, altered, corrupted and unreliable. – Each claimed his new holy book was the most correct and perfect book on earth. – Each claimed to be a final prophet of God. – Each claimed he was persecuted because of his pure faith. – Was a polygamist who had many wives. – Immediately after his death a fight broke out from among the “faithful converts” as to who would succeed him. – Both religions have those who follow the “original doctrine” of the founding leaders and like these founding leaders, have been violent, polygamists, and have revelations justifying their evil actions. – Each has progressive revelation. (“New” revelation always replaces older revelation that became inconvenient to the prophet.) This list was compiled by Erick Barger. Here is the list compiled Ed Decker after his study of the two religions: Both belief systems teach that they have the only true and complete religion on face of the earth. Both reject Christianity as corrupted. Both taught the plurality of wives, both on earth and in here-after. Both teach that the Bible is corrupt and mistranslated. Both revealed God’s true scripture. Both reject original sin and the doctrine of the trinity. Both teach a salvation by good works. Both use a lay clergy. Both founded by a holy uneducated prophet. Both founding prophets had angelic visitations that they were to restore Adamic religion. Both prophets’ words were above scripture or earlier prophets. Both teach a theocratic form of government. Both teach a here-after with graded rewards for works. Both claim to be the world’s fastest growing religion. Glenn Beck, a Mormon was able to get Christians to lock arms with Muslims in a spiritual endeavor that was looking to “one god”.

September 11, 1857, Mormons slaughter 120 men, women and children in the name of God and then years later the Mormons worked to build a Mormon memorial on the ground of the Mountain Meadow Massacre against the wishes of family members of the slain. On September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorists murdered American citizens in the name of God and now seek to build a memorial to their religion in the form of a Mosque only a stone throw from where the Twin Towers once stood.

Biblically committed Christians must understand the spiritual deception of these last days and how Satan will move among false religions and cults to deceive Christians as well as non-Christians as he seeks to build his one-world religion. Satan is seeking to destroy Biblical Christianity for a humanistic Christianity. Satan wants to embarrass and compromise Christian pastors and leaders. Satan is seeking to infiltrate Bible based churches with false teaching and turn them toward his goal of pluralism in the name of tolerance and a social gospel. Satan will use that which has a form of godliness but denies the God of the Bible. Do not be shocked when most “Christians” do not see this and ridicule you.

That’s right: Glenn Beck is now coming under attack for being part of a violent religious cult that is being used by Satan to destroy Christianity. 

I am choking on the irony.
