Why Christians Should
Not Vote for Mitt Romney
Mitt Romney sounds very Christian in his recent speech he gave to defend his faith. Romney said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the savior of mankind.”

Again, this sounds very Christian, however, the Mormon definition of “Son of God” and Savior of mankind” is very different from the Christian definition of the same terms. In the Mormon definition, the “Jesus” mentioned is not Almighty God, but merely the son of “a god.” This “Jesus” did not die on the cross for our sins, but only for Adam’s transgression. Thus, in Mormonism, this “Jesus” cannot save any of us from our sins.

Like other Mormons, when Mitt Romney calls Jesus “savior” or speak of him as such, they only mean that “Jesus” saved them from spiritual death. Since, Mitt and other Mormons do not believe that Jesus’ blood can save them from their sins, they obviously are not really saved. Mormons deny fundamental Bible doctrine
Mitt Romney is talking about another Jesus.

When Mitt and other Mormons call Jesus the “Son of God,” what do they mean? Mormons believe that Jesus is the Son of God in two very unbiblical ways. First, it is important to know that the Mormon God is not the God of the Bible. The Mormon God is a man they call Elohim that became a god. They believe this god is now on a planet near the star Kolob, with his wives having spiritual children. In their two-fold meaning of “son of God”, Mormons mean that Jesus (and also Lucifer) was born to Elohim and one of his goddess wives in a preexistence, as a spirit child, and raised in a family unit until it was his time to come to earth and fulfill his calling on earth. They believe Jesus was then physically conceived again by Elohim and Mary, born, and raised the second time. The Mormons do not believe this was a virgin birth. They believe that God the Father through physical sexual relations with Mary physically fathered Jesus. Mormons believe that we are all “sons of God” in this same way. The Bible clearly shows that Jesus is the only-begotten Son of God.

Believers in the true Jesus Christ of the Bible are children of God by adoption, but only Jesus is God’s natural Son. This is essentially what Jesus being the Son of God means. It is a unique term for the most unique Man who ever lived.
Although the Mormon Church has been insisting that it is Christian lately, it is obviously not, and Mitt Romney knows it. The “Jesus” of the Mormon Church is not the true Jesus of the Christian Bible.
Mitt Romney is a Temple Mormon that is bound by a blood oath to obey Mormon Church leadership over U.S. Law and the Constitution. This oath binds Mitt Romney to “consecrate himself, his time, talents, and everything he now has, or will have in the future,” for advancing the physical earthly organization of the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Mitt Romney cannot be trusted. He will literally say whatever needs to be said in order to become President. This includes lying about his commitment to the Mormon Church over the U.S. Constitution and laws.
