Mormon Church gives $5 million to help resettle refugees in U.S
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has donated $5 million worth of aid to the nine federal refugee resettlement agencies in the U.S., according to the Deseret News.
The donation comprises $1.2 million in cash and $3.8 million in commodities to be used during 2018, and it marks the second straight year the church has made such a donation.
Each of the nine organizations will receive a different amount. Episcopal Migration Ministries, for example, received $50,000 in cash and $200,000 of in-kind donations.
‚ÄúThe support from the LDS church has allowed Episcopal Migration Ministries to grant support projects for housing and health issues focused on homelessness prevention and intensive services for refugee cases with medical needs,‚ÄĚ the organization said in a statement. ‚ÄúWe are thankful for LDS church leadership in support of refugee resettlement.‚ÄĚ...
Now our right wing conservatives and Southern Baptist make every attempt to keep them out instead of using that energy to reveal Christ; the hope of glory. This is a sad commentary about those who supposedly know the truth. My friend from Iran was converted by seeing Christ‚Äôs love commended toward her. Imagine that.
Reply to NeedHim: There are many things Christians can do, but the most important one is to be avaialble. This means to make time, to invite someone for dinner, or. coffee, to listen to them. I visit foreign students dormitories in my school, just to ask them how is their life. To religious students I ask if there is something I can pray for them. There is no foreign church in my city, so being available is a very important ministry.
Well, the Lutheran World Services gets millions of dollars from the U.S. government for resettling refugees, which is how Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota became a stronghold of Somali Muslims who are not assimilating into society there. Same thing with Deerborn, Michigan (I heard that many Muslim countries are going to recognize Deerborn as the capital of the US and relocated their embassies there)
When my family first arrived to Canada many many years ago, the Mormons were the first to greet us and introduce us, it was an unforgettable act of kindness. With that said, Protestants also did that, with free English classes, and providing side jobs such as babysitting and grounds keeping their houses. This was more than 25 years ago, and sadly the modern Protestant church's overall testimony is a big joke, in my opinion. Everyone prefers to minister on Facebook in the virtual world, and not in real life.
I've spoken with Mormons on this subject before. They are very proud of the charitable projects they participate in, and use it as a way to spread their heresy. On the other hand, they're slick when it comes to business and have an uncanny way with money. If you think about it, Mormonism is really just an American equivalent of Islam. Both cults were started by social rejects who were obsessed with money, women, and power. It really is troubling when "Christian" leaders try to join hands with these people.
Apparently Mormons have been as welcoming to immigrants as Catholics have.
Of course both those groups and others [URL=http://tinyurl.com/z2fu7j2]]]http://tinyurl.com/z2fu7j2 (Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah‚Äôs Witnesses)[/URL] I have a problem with "Works" salvation besides other problems that the fellows before me have noted.
That is a kind act of the LDS Church, but from a spiritual application, they still promote another Jesus, through another gospel message. Despite of the name of Jesus being on their missionaries name tags & on the their church buildings.
Be't deceived by the ways as Satan can transform himself as appearing as an Angel of light, a good reminder to share your faith & hope with those, who are Pershing away, with false doctrines amen.
