who don't know him? I just finished watching a interview that Elizabeth Smart's parents did. Knowing that they are Mormon has brought these questions to mind. My brother and his family are also Mormons and I've read some (from a Christian perspective) about the things they are taught and believe. I know that their god isn't out God. Mr and Mrs Smart say that God answered their prayers. And indeed it appears as though He did. They're saying that during the 9 months that Elizabeth was missing (and even thought to be dead) that their faith sustained them. I don't want to be misunderstood even for a moment. God is by all means merciful and compassionate...and He was while we were yet sinners and separated from him. It's because of the fact that He loved us first that we can even have salvation through Jesus Christ. But since Mormonism is a false religion and their gospel is not the true gospel how is it that God honors their faith? It's not that I have anything against Mormons. It certainly isn't the unforgiveable sin. But they have been deceived by Satan. So does Satan have a hand in this too? It's also not that I think further harm should have come to Elizabeth. I'm grateful that she was found and returned to her family. Please don't misunderstand that either. But I would think that as people read the Smart's book and see their interviews on the TV they may be drawn not only to God but to Mormonism too...and this doesn't seem to be of God. What do you make of this?
