    A PERFECT GOVERNMENT.
    If this was the real Romney, he would make a perfect government for this county if he applied this to the government. Not exactly what he has planned for us.

    How exactly do you apply the voluntary help that people give of their own time and money to authorizing some people to give things that belong to other people by force?

    As a point of fact, though, Mormons are NOT Christians. Not in any true sense of the term.

    Mormons are Christian. No clue what true sense he is referring to.

    THIS is what I refer to, Leweman:

    • Mormons believe that the Trinity consists not of three persons in one God but rather of three distinct gods, and according to Mormonism, there are potentially many thousands of gods besides these. Trusting in or worshiping more than one god is explicitly condemned throughout the Bible.
    • Mormons believe that humans, like God the Father, can go through a process of exaltation to godhood.
    • Mormons believe that Jesus Christ was the firstborn spirit-child of the heavenly Father and a heavenly Mother. Jesus then progressed to deity in the spirit world. He was later physically conceived in Mary’s womb, as the literal “only begotten” Son of God the Father in the flesh (though many present-day Mormons remain somewhat vague as to how this occurred).
    • Mormons believe that most people will end up in one of three kingdoms of glory, depending on one’s level of faithfulness. Belief in Christ, or even in God, is not necessary to obtain immortality in one of these three kingdoms, and therefore only the most spiritually perverse will go to hell.
    • Mormons believe that Adam’s transgression was a noble act that made it possible for humans to become mortal, a necessary step on the path to exaltation to godhood. They think that Christ’s atonement secures immortality for virtually all people, whether they repent and believe or not.
    • Mormons believe that God gives to (virtually) everyone a general salvation to immortal life in one of the heavenly kingdoms, which is how they understand salvation by grace. Belief in Christ is necessary only to obtain passage to the highest, celestial kingdom—for which not only faith but participation in Mormon temple rituals and obedience to its “laws of the gospel” are also prerequisites.
    • For Mormons, the one they call “God the Father” is really an elevate man from another planet who became “divine” but not in the ancient Christian sense of “divinization.”

    Did that clear anything up for you at all?
