WASHINGTON ‚Äď Satan has reared his ugly head in the 2008 presidential campaign ‚Äď literally.
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has prompted angry denunciations of religious bigotry by rival Mitt Romney as well as an official retort from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for speculating in a New York Times Magazine interview this weekend that Mormons believe Jesus and Satan were brothers.
Stirred by the debate, the Associated Press sought clarification from Kim Farah, a spokeswoman from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints....
" This LDS theoology shows that Jesus & satan are seen as equals, not Jesus as deity & Creator versus satan as the created. There is no TRI-UNE Yahweh in the LDS background. My problem with mitt is not his LDS as much as the way he lives out his LDS. He was pro stem cell research, then not. He was pro-choice, then not...etc. A Good mormon would care about the helpless. mormons can be moral with a morality that is classy. But to say its alright to kill children....? Thats my problem with Mitt. Got to study Huckabee more." _____
Mormonism and Freemasonry are so intimately interwoven and interrelated that the two can never be dissociated. Mormonism was born in the throes of the holocaust provoked by the Anti-Masonic Morgan affair of 1826.

rob Mormons would tell you they believe in the deity of Christ so the question becomes did Ravi confront them with the reality their view of the deity of Christ (the one they would claim to be spirit brother with Satan) is
IRRECONCILABLY DIFFERENT (and wrong btw)
from how God Himself in Scripture identities Jesus Christ as the eternal second member of the Trinity, the Eternal God...who was never a man and who never became a "god" through his good works to his "god".
A difficult thing to do since the supposed "evangelicals" and Mormons had just enjoyed a join "worship" time together led by Michael Card. You do realize believers cannot worship the Only True and Living God along with unbelievers who are worshipping a false god.
Since Ravi's actual talk was not made available to the public I have to take the reports of those present as an indication of whether or not the Mormons in the audiance present where confronted with the fact their LDS Jesus and their religion are damnably false and they needed to renounce it and repent.
Ravi was so well liked seems couldn't have warned them at all.

Hmmm??? Is the problem really Romney and the Mormons?
I am well aware that Mormons believe Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers, essentially they have a different God, one who was not Eternally God, a different Jesus and therefore a different (cursed) false gospel.
So since we have freedom of religion in the U.S. would this be a problem for us today....
If pastors taught and instructed their congregations explaining and warning why Mormonism is a false religion?
If evangelical celebrities such as Ravi Zacharias refuse to "coworship together" with the Mormons and when given the opportunity as loving as they can expose how the Jesus of the LDS isn't the Jesus God Himself reveals in the Bible and how it is serious sin against Him to promote the lies and false teachings the Mormons have given to their people, and call them to renounce their false teaching and repent and cry out to God to save them?
The thing about historical writings is - it‚Äôs difficult to rewrite the history that they preserve. Take a look at this example of past LDS leader‚Äôs quotes and make up your own mind about their teaching on this question.
