Is This the Death Rattle of Mormonism?
Ed Decker

This is an extremely important report of the coming ruin of the LDS Church as it has stood for almost over 180 years.

Please read it in full. I know it is a bit longer than I would like, but so important. Check out all the references and give me your take on what is happening. It is truly an extraordinary time in this ministry to Mormons.

The LDS Church released a statement recently regarding the nature of God, the exaltation of man and other sundry doctrines that have put the entire world of Christian apologetics ministries on a fast spin cycle.

News reports and blogs have been filled with articles saying that the LDS Church no longer knows or understands the final destiny of man and that they have never really claimed that those Mormons who earn their way to celestial glory will have their own planets to be gods and goddesses over.

The LDS Leaders say that foolish cartoon depictions such as our seven minute cartoon in The Godmakers movie that very accurately described the bedrock center of LDS doctrine of ”The Law of Eternal Progression” were demeaning and misrepresenting sacred spiritual things.

My former Mormon mind went into a damp, dark place as I read the many reports, even in LDS responses, that said, basically, “Wow, see, we really are Christians after all and being ‘like God’ really isn’t being a god.”

I wonder what all those temples will be used for now that the Mormons have lost the need for all the secret password stuff to get their own worlds to people and manage.

It was like a major theological shift took place overnight in some clandestine meeting where the LDS marketing people told the brethren that the whole gods and goddesses thing wasn’t working any more and members were leaving faster than the missionaries were reeling them in. It was time to make another major change in the story line. Once again, the brethren read the poll numbers and new revelation blew in the window.

That this has taken place is no surprise. I non-prophetically said years ago that one day they would be having altar calls in Ward ‘Sacrament’ meetings. I never dreamed they would give up their polygamous godhoods.

I shook my head in semi-disbelief again when, in 2004, the then holy prophet, Gordon B. Hinkley spoke on The Larry King, Live national television and would not confirm the LDS doctrine that God was once a man. He had done the same thing in a Time Magazine report in 1997 when he answered,

“I don’t know that we teach it. I don’t know that we emphasize it. I
haven’t heard it discussed for a long time in public discourse. I don’t know.”

Apparently the prophet hadn’t read his own scripture proclaiming it. {Doctrines and Covenants 130: 22]. It was classic Mormon slip and slide.

When I was a Mormon, blacks were a cursed race that would never hold the Melchizedek priesthood and heaven forbid that they would ever be able to go through the temple endowments where we learn the steps, signs, tokens and secret words needed to enter celestial glory and godhood. We knew this because our holy prophets told us that it was true. [See African Americans and the LDS Church article]

When we went through the Temple Preparation class and learned how important the temple was for our personal exaltation/ godhood/procreating spirit babies and the ruling over our own worlds, we were told that the temple ritual was the very purest ritual of Christ and the early church, brought back by our holy prophets as the very core of the restoration. It was perfect and unchangeable.

Of course, that was before the release of several of our films, The God Makers, The Temple of the God Makers and The Mormon Dilemma. These films went with teams of ex-Mormons making the rounds of hundreds of Churches and public venues, actually demonstrating the temple rituals in full temple clothing, garments and all.

The came another suddenly. All LDS temples closed without notice and when they re-opened, behold a new holy, perfect ritual was in place. This time, without the blood oaths and the ridicule of Christian pastors among numerous changes. [See Temple rituals]:

Without beating this to death, another strange suddenly popped up recently with regard to gay marriage. This was after pouring millions into the California ant-gay proposition 8 and decrying this evil amongst us from every LDS pulpit on California.

Suddenly, the gay agenda was fine with the brethren. It was also OK to be a Gay Boy Scouts and even OK to march as church groups in Gay Pride Parades. Then, down from celestial heights, came the new revelation that it was ok to ordain gays in the priesthood and assign them church leadership callings, even as scout leaders.

I say all this to bring this new reverse revelation into proper perspective. I subscribe to many official and unofficial LDS sites, blogs and news feeds. It gives me a perspective from their point of view and is a good balance. They are all over the map on this one.

The Mormon world with its infallible word of god through its holy prophets and spiritual leaders has finally tilted out of its divine orbit. The very core of its existence, the reason for its “restoration of all things” has now erupted and is spewing surrender across the earth.

Was it the marvelous research and exposure by the hundreds of knowledgeable former Mormons like Ed Decker and Saints Alive or Jim Spencer’s extremely accurate reports on his Maze of Mormonism website. Did that best selling book, The God Makers by Hunt/Decker finally sink in?

No. I think all these things and especially the volumes of material available on the Internet have ripped huge break in the LDS dike.

But I would guess the thing that has brought the LDS Church to its knees is a nationally acclaimed Broadway play called, The Book of Mormon.”

I found it quite strange that official LDS sites and news feeds would actually promote and even publish scheduled showings for the play. If you have seen the play, you may understand my position. It is a satire, mocking the LDS beliefs, including magic underwear and godhood. It contains foul and lewd language.

I would never, as a church leader, promote some worldly play that mocks my faith in a manner such as this does the Mormon faith.

Acting on the axiom of “If you can’t beat them, join them.” The LDS brethren opened the door of complete compromise and in doing so, publicly gave up its lifeblood, the centuries old doctrine of personal purity and godhood. “As Man is, God once was; as god is man may become.”

It is the removal of the final separation of Mormonism from general Christianity. I suggest you read [The Emergent Mormon Church]: https://www.lds.org/topics/becoming-like-god?lang=eng for more detail on this.

But wait, as they say in those torturous TV infomercials. There is more! These Mormon leaders and PR guys are very slick. What they say to their people and the public isn’t always the inside truth. I want you to read the actual report that has triggered all of this and tell me what it really says: Becoming Like God https://www.lds.org/topics/becoming-like-god?lang=eng

The great Mormon empire the Kingdom of God on Earth, is crumbling from within, where its leaders no longer lead but wanting to be acceptable and liked, follow the rushing tide of ungodliness that is consuming the earth in the last days.

Our calling is now to reach out to the survivors, its victims and bring them the love of the real Jesus and introduce them to the only true God and that peace that will pass all understanding.

Newsletter January February 2014

Dear Friends, Is this the Year of Christ’s return?

I don’t know, but I want to live every day as though it were. I want to be ready. I want my every day to bring me closer to that goal ahead; the one Paul spoke about, forgetting those things, which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things, which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14

While we wait, the Christian ethic and the very foundations of our country’s DNA are being quickly and violently ripped out from every corner of our lives. Our sleeping, happy churches and we Christians had better wake up and do so before it really is too late.

While evil and depravity are praised as good and good is cursed as evil, our nation is collapsing from within. Already burdened by the largest per capita debt in US History, we were told that we have to move the debt limit again by February. Debts so deep that we borrow money from China just to make the interest payments on what we already owe them.

This has become a One flew over the Cuckoo nest nation…. The inmates are running the asylum… Let me use this Newsletter to talk about something a bit off subject. It eats away at my soul.

President Obama marked the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision with a statement calling on the nation to “recommit” to the principle “that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.” Obama said. “We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom,”

While the new Affordable care program makes it a mandatory provision in all Insurance programs, morally, it is not anyone’s right to kill their children. What was said to liberate women and their health issues has turned women into adversaries of their own babies.

This has gone so far beyond its originally promoted purpose. Millions of women have become killers of their own flesh and blood. It is genocide on the most massive scale in the history of humankind and our president wants us to beef up our support of this heinous crime.

Since Roe vs Wade, 55 million babies have been murdered in the USA. The numbers are beyond the size of many nations. Over 15% 0f our nation’s population – dead. Actually, in the over-200 Nations of the world by population, #DEADBABIESUSA would be the 24th largest nation in the world, just a few million less than Italy and The United Kingdom.

In the USA, the number of dead babies is almost 20 million more than the largest State California at 38 million and ten million more than the next two states, Texas and New York combined.

This is not just abortion, it is genocide. It goes far beyond Holocaust numbers. The Holocaust claimed between five [low] and 20 million [high] lives. This homegrown murder rampage has claimed double to 10 times as many victims than those who died in that brutal era.

World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history. Over 60 million people died, over 2.5% of the world population. The total number of military and civilian casualties in World War I was over 37 million. USA mothers have killed 20 million more than that.

In America, from the revolutionary war and including every conflict in which we had troops, up the present day as we war in the Middle East, records show we lost a staggering 2,717,991 lives. The Civil war claimed the most lives, 636,000. Abortionists have killed 20 times that dreadful number. And we sit by the sidelines when they bill us for what they call a woman’s right to her own body.

I am afraid that unless we see a miracle turn-around in American Christian complacency, we will see the end of an America we once knew as the best. Pray for that miracle!

And pray for me, that my health improve and that we can complete the major rewrite of our Web and Facebook sites. We do need a few heroes of the faith to step up and give a needed boost to our finances that are really at the bottom of the barrel right now.

Your friends in Christ, Ed and Carol Decker
