I'm Going to Make You an Offer...

DISCLAIMER (please read): This blog is in no way funded or directed by the Mike Huckabee campaign. I began this blog of my own volition, continue it on those same grounds, and was prompted by no other force than my own conscience to write what follows. The views expressed here are mine, irrespective of the Governor's, and are posted for the inspection and dissection of all.

So here goes...

This is a political blog, but I'm going to be politically incorrect. I care too much about you, about America, about truth not to be. Sounds sappy, maybe, but it's true. So I'm going to make you an offer.

But first a few remarks.

I have been blessed to be able to work as an evangelist among undenominational Christians-- across the US and abroad--for over eight years, and in that time, I've learned more than a little about Mormonism. In my work, I have talked and studied extensively with many Mormons, read considerable portions of their holy books, read their history from their own sources (Deseret Publishing), and researched their many doctrines. After doing so, I can say with educated certainty that Mormonism is totally incompatible with, and in contradiction to, Biblical Christianity. Like I said, politically incorrect.

Now, do I think that just because Mitt Romney is a Mormon that he can't be a good president? No (I have other reasons for believing that--can you say "flip flop"?). But Mitt is going to be giving a speech this Thursday to help his dying campaign, and I fear he may say some things that just aren't true. In fact, I expect it. Either through ignorance, or intentional misrepresentation (and I consider either a possibility), Mitt may just try to tell us all that his faith differs in no substantial way from the faith of Christians. If he says that, it will not be true.

My offer? If you'd like to know the truth about Mormonism--not from one interested in bashing Mormons, but from one who cares about truth--please leave a comment on this post, and by no later than Wednesday night I'll have a post up that details the truth about the Mormon Church. The post WILL NOT BE VINDICTIVE, just matter-of-fact, forthright, and documented (the truth has nothing to hide).

That's the offer. I'll wait to hear from you. Thanks for reading.

I would appreciate such a post, and look forward to it. I know some of the differences, but a clearly articulated explanation would be beneficial for all of us. Thank you for taking the time to prepare it. I hope many will read it and consider.

I am a member of the LDS Church, coverted from Southern Baptist. I do not feel that you could provide the TRUTH of Mormonism. For one, you are a minister reliant upon faith for your income, in my line of work, that is considered a conflict of interest.

I do not wish this comment to be an attack on your beliefs or ideology, but I am almost certain your claims with be scewed. I look forward to your posted explaination of Mormonism. Your comments are intended to be "anti-Mormon" in hopes of affecting how people will perceive Gov. Romney. The LDS Church meets all of the criteria of a Christian faith...I too have studied this out, and can support my claims using the KJV of the Bible.

Sir, I hope you take this message as concern to the true efforts of your post. I am sure that Gov. Huckabee would in no way support the tearing down of another man's faith.
