In this mormon message, Spencer explains the Exmormon / Apostate Story in a Salt Lake Tribune comment, covering how Satan and other Ex Mormons have evolved over time into the intellectually hazardous whiners they are today.
Exmormons…[sigh]. To have to devote one of our Mormon messages on the topic of the exmormon clouds my heart darker than Jesus Christ did to the Nephites’ atmosphere during the 3 days without sunlight while He was busy rearranging the continent.
But, as Bill Gates has said, “You get your best feedback from your worst customers.” I think that we members of a similarly wealthy monopoly (on truth) can benefit from following the same advice.
In the past, feedback from the exmormon has been limited to what our leaders and culture say about them.
Our Exmormon Intelligence Department has gathered:
They are weak and just couldn’t hack it.
Mormons are well-known for the multitude of commandments required to get a temple recommend and obtain eternal life, such as paying 10% of your income forever, never touching yourself, never affiliate with any group or individual whose teachings or practices are contrary to or oppose those accepted by the Church, and other sure signs you’ve been nailed. They either never truly had a testimony or they were beguiled by Satan.
They just want to sin more.
Being so righteous for so long is tough! But as
Jesus Vince Lombardi taught, “I never said it would be easy; I only said it would be worth it.” If the argumentum ad hominem is still reliable (which we can only presume from our church leaders’ usage is in full effect) then all members who leave the church MUST secretly need an excuse to justify their desire to drink decaffeinated coffee, wear non-magic underwear, and do something useful with their lives besides serving as a walking wallet and/or uterus.
Somebody offended them.
We see this all the time with inactives in the church who misinterpret “By their fruits ye shall know them” as taught by the Savior. They just don’t understand that any positive intentions or behaviors of our church’s members are directly attributed to the Church, and any negatives can be safely attributed to the individual member whose fault it always is. While this might keep our fold in a state of perpetually low self-esteem and fractured identity, it works—so stop persecuting us already for our beliefs.
They read Anti-mormon lies.
Go through our Young Men/Young Women
indoctrination programs and you will learn how dangerous the internet is. Satan has directed Google from the beginning to show relevant answers to users’ search terms, regardless of how the results might make us look. We strongly suggest that members NEVER read opinions, quotes, resources, books, or evidence of any kind that the Church is anything less than it claims to be. Reason being, it’s all lies. After all, you wouldn’t go to a Ford dealer or an independently investigated, peer-reviewed resource like Consumer Reports to learn about Chevy’s, would you?
They were too intellectual & prideful.
We consistently teach that you just can’t rely on the arm of the flesh OR the brain/logic/intuition as sources of truth and direction. After all, when the Prophet speaks, the thinking has been done. Stay away from deep doctrines, inconsistent statements from church presidents made in General Conference, and any gospel questions for which we should have an answer but don’t, or for which we have a pat answer that makes no sense under further scrutiny. Obviously it’s not important or we would be willing to talk about it! Duh.
They cannot afford the Lord’s membership dues
I pay 10% of my income with pride, as do all faithful latter-day saints who intend to be able to see their families again in the next life. You will hear exmormons likening our requirement to pay money in order to obtain eternal life to Martin Luther’s charges against the Catholic church’s sale of indulgences. But that is a false analogy because we’re the one true church and the Catholics are not. In fact, they are the great and abominable church of the devil, if you ask Bruce R. McConkie, but his words were from times past when apostles spoke freely without the Correlation Committee of The Lord censoring their words for maximum palatability.
Long story short…exmormons leave the church because they selfishly and secretly desire to have discretionary income at the end of the month for luxuries like recreation, new clothes, and health care.
In case you haven’t noticed by now, there is never any legitimate reason for leaving the church. Ever. It is not in the programme. You will never hear it from the pulpit and certainly NEVER in our mormon messages.[testimonial3 author="--Steve Hassan, Psychologist who has counseled over 3,000 people leaving groups such as the Moonies and Scientology" + pic="http://www.truebelievingmormons.com/wp-content/uploads/ex-mormon-defender.jpg"]“In a destructive cult, there is never a legitimate reason for leaving. Members are told that the only reasons why people leave are weakness, insanity, temptation, brainwashing (by deprogrammers), pride, sin, and so on”(p. 84)”[/testimonial3]
Exmormons, or postmormons as they are sometimes called, are different because these really ARE the reasons they leave. They may not say so, but we know better.
Mormon Messages to the Rescue!
I don’t believe any further elaboration of these self-deluded souls is needed, at least for those of us who have eaten a full meal in the last hour or two.
Let these mormon messages be an additional warning to the thousands you have already received in Nursery, Primary, Young Men’s/Young Women’s, on your mission, at BYU, and even as a fully grown adult that thinking for yourself is VERY, VERY risky and dangerous. Just say NO! Your salvation and an eternity of pregnancy and limitless children is at stake.
In future posts, I will demonstrate the psychological and biochemical changes that Exmormons and Postmormons undergo after unplugging their brain stem from The Matrix of the Lord.
Until next time…Stay worthy, brothers and sisters!
