AMES, Iowa -- An Iowa Christian group is circulating flyers at today's straw poll urging people not to vote for Mitt Romney, the strong favorite in today's straw poll ... because he is a Mormon.
"We strongly believe that Jesus Christ, if he were alive in the flesh in this time and voted, would NEVER vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstances," the flyer says. "Mitt Romney represents Mormonism which is counterfeit Christianity, a cult."
Ignoring the fact that Christianity itself was once a cult....
So much for the Christian virtues of tolerance, understanding, forgiveness and open-mindedness.
One thing we can know for sure: if Jesus Christ were alive and voting, he would never vote for Mormon-hating so-called "Christians." He would probably say, "Whoever is without misunderstanding of My teaching, let him cast the first anti-Romney vote!"
True Christians, those who live with love and respect in their hearts and souls, those who have learned that Jesus Christ works in and through all reverent people who turn to Him and ask for help in His name, will hopefully say, "Wait a minute! This anti-Mormon propaganda and anti-Mormon campaign is un-Christian and I'm not going to let these unforgiving "Christians" get away with it. I'm voting for Mitt Romney!
The anti-Mormon campaign is more than political dirty tricks. It is ego-possession or, as it is called in ancient language, demon-possession. Our spiritual preparation device given by Jesus Christ for the 21st Century, A Course in Miracles, says this about the true teacher of God:
God's teachers do not judge. To judge is to be dishonest, for to judge is to assume a position you do not have. Judgment without self-deception is impossible. Judgment implies that you have been deceived in your brothers. How, then, could you not have been deceived in yourself? Judgment implies a lack of trust, and trust remains the bedrock of the teacher of God's whole thought system. Let this be lost, and all his learning goes. Without judgment are all things equally acceptable, for who could judge otherwise? Without judgment are all men brothers, for who is there who stands apart? Judgment destroys honesty and shatters trust. No teacher of God can judge and hope to learn.
