The Mormon Priesthood is Used to Abuse

The Mormon Priesthood is Used to Abuse

This program centers on examples of how the Mormon Priesthood has been and continues to be used to abuse its Membership, by coercing members to believe that they LDS has the Authority of the Melchizedek Priesthood. This program points out how the Mormon Priesthood:

  1. Abuses the Authority of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ regarding the Priesthood as contained in the Bible.
  2. Abused the Black Race, by restricting them from holding the Priesthood (a requirement for men to marry in the temple and gain Eternal Salvation according to LDS Doctrine).
  3. Abuses the Priesthood of “ALL” Believers as taught in the Bible, restricting the Priesthood to only men
  4. Abused Women by taking multiple wives “under the authority of the Priesthood.”
  5. Abused Children emotionally and mentally by priesthood holders not admitting they were their own children.

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
