I wish to support Donna Murray's statement that Mitt Romney is a Christian. I am a member of the same church he belongs to.
If you want to know the truth, go to the source. If you want to buy a certain make of car, you wouldn't go to a different maker to find out about it. We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
Many aspects of our religion are very sacred to us and are not discussed casually or in casual circumstances. We revere and respect Joseph Smith as a prophet, or mouthpiece, of the Lord, as we also do President Thomas S. Monson, our current prophet.
In addition, many of the woes our nation is facing are a direct consequence of not obeying God's commandments. Consider the following from Malachi 3:8-10: "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse ... and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it ..."
God is not dead. He is waiting to bless us, but those blessings do not come without effort on our part.
