I pray that every mormon can find the love, the grace, and the TRUTH of Jesus Christ <3 my heart goes out to them all
When we stop repenting, stop read the scriptures and stop praying- we totally lose our testimony of Jesus Christ. ;(
This is one of the most impactful and important channels on all of YouTube, in my opinion, and this video is typical of its powerful content. The truths presented here, exposing the evil and immorality of Mormanism, are valid across all religions. Thank you to all who step forward to tell their story.
God bless you🙏Thanks for your testimony. I hope it helps others that are in doubt. Jesus is the only way. You will meet Jesus one day and that day you will know how much he loves you.❤
Thank you for your beautiful, powerful story. May you continue on your inspiring way of communicating love and the importance of life and understanding and altruism in the here and now.
Yes, in Ephesians 2:8-9 it states that we are saved by grace and not by works. So that no one can boast. So, working our way back to God won't save us. We were saved when he died on the cross for us.
I recently was divorced by my husband we were married in the temple active in the church for 24 years. It constantly went through my mind how can I be together with him in the eternities when we are divorcd here on Earth. I asked my dad about it and he said it will be worked out in heaven. I didn't like that answer so I started researching stuff about the church and the truth came to me the church is false. I have been reading the Bible and started attending a Christian Church. Knowing Jesus is the way to get back to heaven.
To keep you paying tithing. Nothing matter mores to the church. The church makes as much as Apple through tithing and their for-profit systems. A loving God would not threaten to kill you and your family with fire for not paying tithing, let alone separate you for eternity.
Kerri, you very eloquently broke apart and summed up the Mormon psychology of familial retention and it's effects on family relationship dynamics. WOW!!! I hope that you never tire of the good that you do.
That was the only reason my husband and I went through the temple. My mother in law constantly telling me I'd never see my kids again if I didn't. That we would never be truly happy. But she finally wore me down and I went ahead with it. Things kept getting in the way of the sealing day. I kept saying it was a sign we shouldn't do it. No I was told it's Satan working against you. My husband and I talked about where to get dinner in the celestial room. Shows how important it was. Only good memory of it was when my little boys walked in and my littlest told me I looked like a princess even in the ridiculous garb.
Appreciate the video and this lady's heartfelt words but the competing background music is way too loud and so overpowering and distracting that I couldn't finish watching the video.
Ten percent of your income or your kids. Take your choice. What could be so cruel? !!
Going to church as a child, at the very beginning, was a positive life-changer for the family. Yet, it never fooled me. I knew something was off from the beginning. I see that the family I once had, hid behind this religion and found something that would justify their stupidity. I know there are lots of dysfunctional family dynamics involved, but the mormon doctrine made it worse. Now they cannot get off their high horse because they think they are superior. I have noticed too that other non-regular church members get shunned as well as those that leave the fold.
Members of religion, particularly LDS, make the church central to their lives. When they leave the church, I wonder if they reflect with regret of how much time in their lives they've spent (wasted?) with such great faith and contributing effort, in a belief system that wasn't true at all.
Because there is a linking of family to Mormonism, Scientology and JW's within these traditions the outcome of leaving is extremely painful. As a Catholic various family members have practised and then not practised our faith over many years. It would never occur to any one of us to shun them because of their choices. We pray for them instead.
I like the point she made about doctrine keeping people in line through fear. It's how most religions work, and it's especially powerful when the indoctrination starts in the weak and vulnerable minds of children. It carries into adulthood and people fear honestly questioning their beliefs because they know doubt can lead to truth, and if truth conflicts with their beliefs they'll be punished with eternal damnation.
My friend, what you said is exactly what I've been recently thinking. I want to have a family someday and the doctrine that I can't be in the Terrestrial or Tellestial Kingdoms without my wife and kids tells me that the Mormon God is imperfect. If He were perfect He would, yes, give all of His children a certain degree of glory as LDS doctrine states, but would allow them to be happy, truly happy with precious family by their side. I hate how the Church enthuses so much about free agency when coercion through faith happens on a daily basis!
this is why I never ended up joining the church. i didn't want to be cut off from my family. I didn't want to force them to miss out on parts of my life. God would never divide families. i know it sounds cheesy, but Ohana means Family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.
wat a loser
this is not true
