 Mormon Letter

Dear friends following is a letter from a Mormon woman to her Christian sister who attends my church here in Utah. Although we do not know her name we can lift her before the Lord and rejoice together in what the Lord has done for her. Pray that her sister would feel free to speak to her the things of God.


"I feel urged to write you to admit to you a great lie alot of members
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believe, myself
included. I believed I needed to perfect myself with my works. I
have been consumed for as long as I can remember with perfectionism.
I needed to do everything I possibly could before I could ask the Lord
for help. I spent my life in a frantic state seeking perfection. I
was miserable and deeply depressed because I couldn't perfect myself.
I would be very angry at God for not allowing me to be perfect -
especially since I felt He commanded it. I never realized until now
how great my sins and wickedness were in believing this lie.
There is a scripture in 2 Nephi 25:23 which states"...for we know that
it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do." I wrote in
the margin " do everything you can - the Lord will do the rest." My
heart sinks when I read those words in my own handwriting. I wrote my
lie - the great lie I have believed - that I could save myself (except
what ever little part Jesus would play in my salvation). Oh I want to
cry because of my blindness and my hard heartedness.
I have been awakened to the truth that all I can do is repent - humble
myself and give my will to God. That is all I can do and it is all He
requires of me. This truth has set me free."

 Re: Mormon Letter

This is remarkable ... However the recogination came, that it came is all that matters. A prayer towards these sisters.

 Re: Mormon Letter

Brother Alan, that is amazing indeed!

What this lady writes is something that it takes many of us, who know far more of the Gospel and correct doctrine, a long time to realise.

It just shows how the Lord can reveal Himself even through demon-inspired writings like the Book of Mormon, that contains more lies than truth.

Muslims have been known to find Christ through reading even the little truth about Him that the Koran contains: that He did miracles and healed people for example, while Mohammed didn't.

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS ABUNDANT GRACE TOWARDS THOSE WHO DO NOT EVEN KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM WHOM THEY SEEK!

HALLELUJAH!!! :-D

(and I think you would agree that upper case is appropriate here!)
