The forces for the global acceptance of sodomy scored another major victory this week as the Mormon “Church” reversed its own 2015 rules that explicitly barred homosexuals from full participation in the body.
“In a stunning move, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Thursday it was reversing its controversial policy that defined same-sex marriage as a grave sin against the church worthy of excommunication and banned LGBT parents from baptizing their children…
Dallin H. Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency, said the church’s decision to completely reverse its policy came after ‘an extended period of counseling with our brethren’ and a ‘united prayer to understand the will of the Lord.’ The new policies will be sent to priesthood leaders across the world.”
This is only the latest example of the Mormons changing their profession in order to please the mainstream culture, and the capitulation will certainly not stop here. After defining homosexuality as being only slightly “less moral” than heterosexuality, the next step is obviously to declare homosexuality to be perfectly normal and virtuous.
This story highlights the greatest weakness of Mormonism and all other false, man-made religions. When morality is defined by men instead of God, it becomes untethered and chaotic. The Mormon “prophets” can easily declare what was once considered good to now be evil, and they have frequently done so throughout their history.
As Christians we hold that God’s moral standard never changes, and that “Jesus Christ [is] the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”(Hebrews 13:8). We urge all Mormons who are disgusted by this recent decision to repent of their false religion and their idolatrous loyalty to man-made rules, and to accept the one true Jehovah and the unchanging revelation of his moral nature.
