Mormonism: Damning Theology and Damnably Bad Poetry
Bad theology + bad poetry = all around bad situation.
You’ve probably been noticing that the Mormon Church has been engaged recently in all-out media blitz to, as ever, position themselves as just plain folks who love life, their families and, oh yea, they are Mormons! I recall as recently even as a few years ago how Mormons would bristle at any use of the word “Mormon” to refer to them or their religion, but, seeing the PR light, they have embraced the term, “Mormon.” Unfortunately there are way too many Christians who have glommed on to Glenn Beck, bloviator extraordinaire, and have allowed him to create a huge PR platform for Mormonism, which is taking full advantage of.
And so, whenever this kind of thing happens, it is important to remember why Mormonism is not a Christian religion. It is a cult that uses some concepts that sound Christian, but the theology of Mormonism is decidedly anti-Biblical and anti-Christian. Mormonism is a false and damning religion.
Here is a video from Wretched Network making the point, in its own typically unique way.
Here are full lyrics to the hymn.
