Mormons preach love for LGBT members, but no doctrinal shift

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Mormon leaders told gay and lesbian members Tuesday that attraction to people of the same sex is not a sin or a measure of their faithfulness and may never go away, but reminded them that having sex violates fundamental doctrinal beliefs that will not change.
The newly unveiled “Mormon and Gay” church website includes articles, teachings, videos and stories from church members who identify themselves as gay and lesbian. It is a remake of a site first created nearly four years ago that marked the religion’s most significant outreach to gays and lesbians.
The website is designed to encourage compassion and acceptance for LGBT people and strike a softer tone on an issue that has led to criticism of the conservative Utah-based The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently.
The Mormon church is one of many conservative faith groups staunchly upholding theological opposition to same-sex relationships amid widespread social acceptance and the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage, while attempting to foster an empathetic stance toward LGBT people.
“There is no change in the church’s position of what is morally right,” church leader Dallin H. Oaks said on the website. “But what is changing_and what needs to change_is helping church members respond sensitively and thoughtfully when they encounter same-sex attraction in their own families, among other church members, or elsewhere.”

The JW church doesn’t display love but the Lord does

The Mormon church and gays and their children 

A new rule enacted by the Mormon Church last week would classify church members in same-sex marriages as apostates, triggering disciplinary action and potential expulsion from the church. But another policy change has people up in arms. According to revisions of the Church of Latter-day Saints handbook, children of gay couples would be barred from membership until adulthood, and then only if they disavow the practice of same-sex marriage and cohabitation.

( Billy’s thoughts – It is one thing to love children who have gay parents and to care about gays but all churches should call for her members to reject sin. So the Mormon church is right here. It is also my prayer that this issue will be used to encourage Mormons who are in gay relationships and their children to come out of the Mormon church and seek  the true God of the Bible. All true believers need to pray that. )

What’s the difference between the Mormon and the Christian view of heaven?

Mormons undergarment not key issue….

Listen to the commentary right here
or read it below.

Don’t you think when dealing with other world views we should deal with the main things.
The Mormon church is addressing the mystery which has for along time surrounded undergarments worn by faithful Mormons with a new video.
The four-minute video on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ website compares the white, two-piece cotton “temple garments” to holy clothes worn in other religious faiths such as a Catholic nun’s habit or a Muslim skullcap.

The latest video dispels the notion that Latter-day Saints believe temple garments have special protective powers, a stereotype encouraged on the Internet and in popular culture by those who refer to the religious clothing as “magical Mormon underwear.”

“These words are not only inaccurate but also offensive to members,” the video says. “There is nothing magical about temple garments, and church members ask for the same degree of respect that would be afforded to any other faith by people of goodwill.”

While this is an interesting topic it should not be our focus when dealing with the Mormon Church and it’s members.

We should focus on issues like..

Who is Jesus: was he born because God the father had sexual relations with the virgin Marry as Mormons believe.

Is the Bible the word of God and can it be trusted in all matters or do we need to add to it with the Book of Mormon.

Are we saved by grace through faith in Christ or as the Mormon Church teaches must we do some kind of good works.

The truth is the Mormon Sect is not Christian but a cult. Their main doctrines go against what the word of God teaches.

What do you think.

Until next time,
