then i suggest we look at freedom of religion , for those that qualify as a true Faith system and not something that hides behind the name of religion , but is more political and business than faith.
though not a fan of the doctrine of Mormonism , should not the fpeople of that faith be allowed to go on with how they are without the rest of Christianity slinging crap and accusations ??
you can only honestly do so as a Christian when the folks have proven themselves NOT Christian and by every definition
follower of Christ's teachings
One who gives their life to Christ
One who accepts eternal salvation through Christ , the majority of mormon folks would qualify , foibles aside... like any group ..
peter and paul both wrote that folks had different ways to come to christ and that these had made churches that he worried about but that the people accept Christ Jesus as their savior he could not condem
so then who are you to say who is and who is not a Christian ??
By their Deeds shall ye know them is the rule of thumb taken from the Good Book
and any look see and you'll find the majority of those folks pass that test too
yeah as stated in my first post , biggest scammer i ever knew was one but he took everyone equal opportunity ,
you get good and bad in all the main faiths
like every where as faiths are made up by people and the religous part too ( ceremony and doctrine )
and people screw up
like you have
s'ok we all screw up
