And within this great temple, it is our privileged delight to “rely on the living God, Who is the Savior of all mankind, especially of believers” (I Timothy 4:10). Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” then, “Who do you say that I am” (Matt. 16:13-15), because the details mattered. “Those who worship God,” He told the woman at the well, “must worship Him in Spirit and truth” (Jn. 4:24).

Henry Morris (the founder of the Institute for Creation Research) declared as late as 1991 that "Negroes...were [not meant] to be forcibly subjugated," but they were, "because of their innate nature."[ 65 ] While allowing for exceptions in the case of many outstanding "Negro" individuals, Morris teaches that "Negroes" are "possessed of a genetic character concerned mainly with mundane [commonplace] matters, they have eventually been displaced by the intellectual and philosophical acumen...and religious zeal of [other races].

If the name must be shortened, "the Church of Jesus Christ," or "the Church" is acceptable, they said (3/19/01, USN&WR). [Back to Top] # This report has been excerpted and/or adapted from two sources: (1) " The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ," Rick Branch (Watchman Fellowship Profile, 1993); and (2) Examining & Exposing Cultic & Occultic Movements, Jack Sin, "What is Wrong with Mormonism," April 2000, pp. 21-25. 1 The Bible lists six identifying marks of false prophets, any one of which is sufficient for identification: (1) through signs and wonders they lead astray after false gods (Dt. 13:1-4); (2) their prophecies don't come to pass (Dt. 18:20-22); (3) they contradict God's Word (Isa. 8:20); (4) they bear bad fruit (Mt. 7:18-20); (5) men speak well of them (Lk. 6:26); and (6) they deny that Jesus, the one and only Christ, has come once and for all in the flesh (1 Jn. 4:3), thereby denying His sufficiency in all matters of life and godliness (2 Pe. 1:3).
