A Brigham Young University Professor’s Escape from Mormonism

The summer of 2006, my husband and I mustered the courage to drive two hours away from our largely Mormon community in Utah to attend a non-Mormon church on a Saturday night. That way, no Mormon friends or priesthood leaders could possibly see us. We were paranoid, worried that if someone from Brigham Young University saw me at a non-denominational Christian church, I would lose my ecclesiastical clearance and my job as a professor.

The first night we were there, the pastor preached directly from the Bible about the cross on which Jesus had paid my debt. This was a foreign concept to me. Mormons don’t revere the cross. They see it as an instrument of death, not the place where Christ became the savior.

Our son had faced similar dangers. He risked everything—faith, family, friends, girlfriend, college scholarship, respect—by stepping out of Mormon belief. This son stood before a roomful of fellow ...

I know Mrs Wilder and her family personally. I also know the host of the SLC TV show on which she came out. I probably was handling the camera on that night.

I can vouch for all that they are all good Christian men and women.

That is false that Mormons worship Jesus as God. In the Mormon worship there is no worship of Jesus in anyway. There is only testimony about how great Joseph Smith was. But the RCC has always worshipped the biblical Jesus as God.

I'm glad for this woman and her family of getting out of Mormonism, and yes, John Y., Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses are all birds of a feather, all are anti-Christian, e.g., Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

1 Timothy 2
5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
1 Peter 2:1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
2 like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,---NASB

So, no, John Y., knowing what you now know, if you don't Come Out Of The Catholic Church, you aren't a Christian, and No, we Are[n't] Catholic Bashing.

What great comments !
As one who was gloriously saved from that satanic system by our great God and Saviour...the Holy Spirit will drive you from all that is blasphemous and unholy in worship.If you see nothing wrong in false worship of Almighty God you should tremble and question your salvation!

I personally don't see how someone who has the Holy Spirit would be able to stay in the RCC. It seems to me the Holy Spirit would lead them out eventually. I know if I went to a Catholic Church, and they start the whole "Hail Mary, mother of grace" thing, I would immediately start feeling uncomfortable. Or listen to some priest let himself be called Holy Father, all dressed up in his elaborate gown. Blah, just makes me sick thinking about it. Jesus said you can't serve two masters, you either love one and hate the other. Catholics worship Mary and Jesus, but obviously Mary more than Jesus. Not only that, but the sacraments make Jesus Christ's death on the cross of none effect. So the Jesus, and the Mary they worship are not of the Bible.

Good for you Shane! You and I also know that the Mormons do in fact worship Jesus as God, but like the RCC, they have simply redefined what that means.

Right before I became a Christian I actually studied with them and even attended one of their places or worship. Anyway, praise God that you left them.

Great testimony. Hopefully we will see John Yurich give a testimony like this one day! And leave the false Roman Catholic Church. And follow the Jesus of the Bible. Not the Jesus that is crucified Dailey in the mass.

The gospel is the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our salvation. It is not just about His deity. Just because a church 'worships Jesus as God', and just because you are born again, does not mean you should stay in a church that teaches false doctrine. A true believer is repulsed by any false doctrine, especially one that distorts the one true gospel or presents a different gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).

Yes it is impossible for one who is Born Again to remain in the Mormon church or any other church that does not worship Jesus as God. But it is not impossible for one who is Born Again to remain in the Catholic Church or any other Non Evangelical church that worships Jesus as God because they will remain saved as they worship Jesus as God.
