Angry Later Day Saints! (Mormons) and Do Mormons have the Holy Spirit?

January 9th, 2010 Comments off

Dear Readers,
Greetings from Ghana. Today while I was out doing some evangelism with Elliot an EX-Jehovah’s Witness we came across some Mormons on their bicycles.

One was a Ghanaian named Clement amd the other named Bradon from Arizona. We got into a nice peaceful discussion about what qualifies us to preach the gospel. We also got into a nice discussion about what it means to be a child of God. I then asked the Mormons (LDS, Later Day Saints)what it means to do the will of God and how we would we do His Will.

Once again their response had nothing to do with being Born of the Spirit by receiving Christ, rather they said that by being water baptised that they were then qualified to do God’s will. They also said that they could have the Holy Spirit with them simply because hands were laid on them and because of the Water Baptism……Yet no mention was made of their receiving Christ or of mans need to do that. Yet its only in receiving Christ that we are made righteous/right with God so we can then have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us.

Then I mentioned that Mormon’s teach that Christ and Satan are Spirit brothers.

Man when I said that the Arizona man got so angry and started swearing at me and pointing fingers at me…………..

I have not often seen such things in all my days here in Ghana.

Could it be that the Mormons dont have the Holy Spirit and hence dont have peace and self control in their lives?

Romans 5:5 says: Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

God has given us His wonderful Spirit, but He the Spirit is only given after we have received Christ the One who makes us righteous.

Let Romans 8:10 speak to you dear reader please….. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.

Amen.

Steve.
