"I have a problem with people that proselyte against ANY OTHER religion. I believe that one should be converted by expounding about what you believe, not against what anyone else believes.

By definition, which if looked up in most dictionaries vary. There is this: a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. That said, LDS people may be cultish. If you consider that their devotion is toward God the Eternal Father and his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost.

The definition of a cult is a group of people with extreme dedication to a certain leader (Christ is the leader of the Mormon Faith) or set of beliefs that are often viewed as odd by others, or is an excessive and misplaced admiration for someone or something, or is something that is unpopular among a certain segment of society.

With the way that society is going today, people that believe in old fashioned values, God, and honoring the family unit, then yes Mormonism may be a cult, because we are not the norm anymore, and thank goodness for that.

The LDS Faith professes to believe in God, the Eternal Father and in His son Jesus Christ and Holy Ghost. This is the 1st Article of Faith (there being 13) Usually when you place something in the first position of a list it is because it holds the most importance.

The LDS Faith also believe in trying to live the 10 Commandments. Just as in the 10 commandments, the first commandment is to say, "thou shalt have no other Gods before me" and that we should not have any graven images. Mormons try more than any other formalized religion to not take the name of God in Vain... we don't throw it around as an explicative as many others of every other religion do. We as a religion practice keeping the Sabbath Day Holy... Those above are the ones that we put a lot of emphasis on that are “peculiar” They may make us cultish. I know that most people of every religion try to live the remaining commandments as well as Mormons.

All through the bible, it talks about a peculiar people…I find it ironic, that in today’s world, a “cult” would be considered peculiar. In the bible, too the chosen people are “peculiar”

If you look into other religions, that have been considered a cult, or when someone is worried that a family member joined a cult, it is usually because they fear that the cult won’t let them out, that they somehow hold them captive. In the LDS faith if you want to walk away, you are fee to do so. In the case of Mike Norton who has made a mockery of what people believe to be sacred. He has spent a lot of time, money and effort to try to dissuade people from being a Mormon. I don’t know a single Mormon who has spent any amount of time professing that what ANY other person of any faith believes is false.

I find that there is great opposition to anything that is good, that is the nature of this life and Satan and his followers. I would never go to someone and tell them the Koran is of the devil, or Buddha is a false prophet etc, etc. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone of our faith that would do so.

If you can’t convert someone to your religion by preaching what you believe then that is a problem, but you should not try to tear down anything that is about doing good.

"Thanks Elizabeth for your hypocritical comment. If you can tell me that I'm wrong in what I'm doing, then surely I can tell Mormons that what they're doing is wrong in following a false god to hell." (4/13/13)

Cindy says...
"Hello Rob,
I am a three week convert to biblical Christianity from Mormonism. I was looking over your website. Can you actually witness on BYU campus? I thought that was not allowed because BYU is privately owned. I graduated from BYU in 1981. How long were you Mormon? I just looked over your website rather quickly, but could not find your conversion story. Are you actually getting church members to look at your website? None that I associated with before would ever go to anti-Mormon sites. Maybe times are changing now. Thank you for your time. Look forward to hearing from you. " (11/14/14)

"Hi Cindy,

I praise the Lord for Him bringing you to Himself. How did it happen?

BYU will kick mission teams off now if they are discovered. I never had a problem with the exception of one older guy who had long hair. He stuck out like a sore thumb. Teams that go now just go to the cafe and have lunch with people.

I've never been LDS, but my wife was. Here's my autobio: http://www.mormoninfo.org/autobiography-15.

Yes, many LDS are checking out www.MormonInfo.org or www.JosephLied.com.

Your bro,R " (11/14/14)

"Years ago, when Mike had his website up and running, I called him up and thanked him for it. Then I ended up calling the "other" Mike Norton, who works for FEDEX and happens to be a Mormon that tried to get me back into the Mormon church! The good Mike works, or did work at UPS. He put it very clearly how you can discredit the BOM with nothing more than a calculator!" (5/17/11)
