In 1844 AD Joseph Smith warned us about Mitt Romney when he said:
You will…see men arise in power in the Church who will seek to put down your friends and the friends of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Many will be hoisted because of their money and the worldly learning which they seem to be in possession of; and many who are the true followers of our Lord and Savior will be cast down because of their poverty.
The position of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints concerning socialism has never changed:
[E]very prophet of the Church, from the Prophet Joseph Smith on down, concerning our belief that we should be strong and self-reliant individuals, not dependent upon the largess of government. None of the doctrines of our Church give any sanction to the concept of a socialistic state.
And yet RICH Mormons support this Socialist TRAITOR to the Constitution, liberty and his own faith.
Mormons’ First Families Rally Behind Romney
Now, more than 150 years later, descendants of those first families of Mormonism are joining together in a new effort: delivering the White House to Mitt Romney, whose great-great-grandfather Miles Romney settled alongside many of their ancestors in Nauvoo in 1841 and joined their torturous migration.
These families — Marriotts, Rollinses, Gardners and others — have formed a financial bulwark and support network for Mr. Romney at every important point in his political career. Starting with his 1994 Senate race, moving into the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics effort that became his political springboard and continuing through his first foray into presidential politics, they have been there to open doors, provide seed money and rally support.
Prominent Mormons including the JetBlue founder David G. Neeleman and the Credit Suisse chief executive Eric Varvel are on his finance team.
The Book of Mormon proclaimed that this apostasy of Latter-day Saints in our day would occur. It says that Mormons would become pollutions, hypocrites, and teachers who sell themselves for that which will canker (socialism), and that the members themselves would pollute the holy church of God.
O ye pollutions, ye hypocrites, ye teachers, who sell yourselves for that which will canker, why have ye polluted the holy church of God? (Mormon 8:38)
The Apostasy is in full bloom as Mormons have become devout followers of the Satan and his counterfeit religion of Socialism. Romney is a socialist! A BIG ONE. He is a traitor and an apostate.
President Marion G. Romney, in the First Presidency Message in the September 1979 Ensign, wrote:
“Communism is Satan’s counterfeit for the gospel plan, and … it is an avowed enemy of the God of the land. Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world today and therefore the greatest menace not only to our peace but to our preservation as a free people. By the extent to which we tolerate it, accommodate ourselves to it, permit ourselves to be encircled by its tentacles and drawn to it, to that extent we forfeit the protection of the God of this land.”
Joseph Smith’s prophesy also foretold of this Mormon apostasy when he predicted the rise of both the Republican Party and Independent American Party and all these undeclared foreign wars and an invasion of the USA. It was given on June 19, 1844 and is commonly known as the “Hancock Prophecy”:
The next day the Prophet came to our home and stopped in our carpenter shop and stood by the turning lathe. I went and got my map for him… He said…”You will… see men arise in power in the Church who will seek to put down your friends and the friends of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Many will be hoisted because of their money and the worldly learning which they seem to be in possession of; and many who are the true followers of our Lord and Savior will be cast down because of their poverty. There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party. The United States will spend her strength and means warring in foreign lands, until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of United States.” Then the people of the U.S. will unite and swear by the blood of their forefathers, that the land will not be divided. Then the country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the U.S. army will give up, and the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged and discouraged, and almost ready to give up, when the boys from the mountains will rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin. And they will say, “Brethren, we are glad you have come. Give us men, henceforth, who can talk with God.” Then you will have friends, but you will save the country when it’s liberty hangs by a hair, as it were.
