Jews, Muslims, Unitarians, Jehova’s Witnesses, and Mormons, Need To Connect The Biblical Dots

September 16, 2011

I’ve heard Muslims say many times that “the prophets of the OT don’t mention Jesus”. Actually, this assumtion goes against the Jewish quest to find Messianic passages. Granted, many Jews today reject that Jesus is their Messiah, however, how can one escape the clear connection between Christ and Isaiah 53, Daniel 9, etc?

Further, how can a Jew who rejects Jesus Christ as Messiah, make sense of Psalm 110? This is one of the greatest Messianic Psalms in all the Torah (OT). Yet, the only way to make sense of this Messianic Psalm is if Jesus, as revealed in the NT, is the Divine Messiah.

This Psalm says two profound things:

Mormons And The Burning In The Bosom (revised)

July 21, 2010

Mormons will point to their experience of the burning in the bosom to ultimately validate that their beliefs are true. Since scriptures, interpretations, and prophets can all contradict each other, then supposedly a final arbiter of truth is needed outside of the realm of people’s opinions. We need something verifiable. That “something” is a verifiable burning sensation in the heart to Mormons.

In The Book of Mormon (TBM), the Book of Moroni 10:4 states, “And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Then James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally”. (KJV)

Doctrine & Covenants (D&C) 9:8 says, “But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right.”

Mormons and The Sin of Pride

October 6, 2009

mormons

Most Mormons who come to my door, whom I see on tv, or whom I hear on the radio seem to always assure everyone that they’re “good people”. They’re quick to say this without hesitation as though they’re the finest top-notch specimens of human beings. They put the wonder back into wonderful. The context in which they say they’re “good” is that they keep their sin level to a minimum. It’s NOT because Christ made them good and is making them good.

It’s not because He lived the life they couldn’t, died the death they deserved (for not living the life they should have), and rose from the dead to prove it all satisfactory. Instead, it’s that they are good on their own and are making themselves good on their own.
