Mormonism: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask
When you think of the Mormon Church or the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS), what comes to mind?
For me, it's clean living, the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, young men on bicycles doing their required two years of evangelism, the Mormon Tabernacle choir, the best geneology institute in the world, and finally the once practiced, now outlawed concept of polygamy.
As Mitt Romney, a Mormon and former Republican governor of Massachusetts, emerges as a leading presidential candidate, many people are wondering what Mormonism is all about and how it might affect his term in office were he to be elected.
Thanks to Lon Solomon, pastor at McLean Bible Church in Virginia, you can learn more about Mormonism than you ever dreamed possible and were afraid to ask. Listen to the whole thing here.
But be forewarned, this sermon is not for the faint hearted. It's not something you will hear or read in most promotional church info or the mainstream media. You won't hear this from the fellows who come to your door on foot or bikes to tell you about Mormonism. Much of the core beliefs are extremely esoteric.
As always, Solomon tells is like it is.
Then a favorite hymn of the saving Amazing Grace of Jesus Christ.
