Inaccurate headline from 10/18/2012 CBS Charlotte/AP article
Last month BGEG removed an article identifying Mormonism as a cult from their website, and news agencies misunderstood.
A BGEG spokesman said they still consider Mormonism a cult but they wanted to avoid their belief being “politicized" during the campaign.
I have great respect for BGEG, but I believe they made a mistake by downplaying God's Truth during the campaign. We should be loving and fair to those of other faiths, but not at the expense of accurately presenting God's truths.
We are here on earth for one purpose: to know Christ and make Him known.
The distorted "Jesus" of Mormonism is misleading millions of lost souls (John 10:10).
Let's never be ashamed to warn people of this truth and tell them that the Jesus of the Bible wants to give them Life!*
* “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10, NIV
2 Peter 2:1-3 is God's attitude toward those like Joseph Smith who introduce false beliefs under the guise of Christianity and mislead countless souls.

If you wish to leave a comment, be sure to address the message of this post (i.e. downplaying God's truth). This post is not about who should have been elected President. Nor am I talking against BGEG in general. I have great respect for many aspects of Graham's ministry and feel they seek to make Christ known. That's why this departure was a disappointment. I purposely mentioned BGEG by name to clarify that they still consider Mormonism a cult despite the misunderstanding their actions created.
