It seems that the following quote by Joseph Smith Jr concerning persecution is very relevant for this church once again this week.... “The Saviour said, Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake; rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the Prophets which were before you." Now, dear brethren, if any men ever had reason to claim this promise, we are the men; for we know that the world not only hate us, but they speak all manner of evil of us falsely, for no other reason than that we have been endeavouring to teach the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ”
This week the ugly and evil head of persecution has risen once again, it seems that Satan really has a hold of peoples hearts at the moment and we are bearing the brunt of it. We here at The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ are not here to make enemies but to simply spread the message of the Christ and to tell people about a wonderful gift that he has given the world in The Book of Jeraneck. However it seems that there are groups of people who claim to be members of a church that believes in Jesus and they have took it upon themselves to send us emails that are of a hateful nature and that pour scorn upon a church that they know nothing about and to brand us as evil and under the influence of Satan...however they not only accuse us of of being evil but any one who is not a member of their church the LDS (UTAH) but they also go as far as saying that Muslims are evil, and it would seem that despite their leaders declaring form the stand that there are people in this world inspired by God to bring about change and usher in new eras for mankind that are not members of the LDS church such as Muhammadans.... they are however closed off from this sentiment.
The emails were of such a disgraceful nature that I have decided to list one of them on this blog site and allow you to draw your own conclusion in to their nature. All I would say before you read it is that we have hundreds of emails every week from people wanting to know what we are about and asking sincere and relevant questions however the majority of emails form LDS(Utah) Mormons are of a derogatory nature and have a slanderous viper to them. I don't understand how a people that profess to be led by God can produce such hateful emails. I ask all LDS (Utah) Mormons to take a long look at what this person wrote and ask yourself is that really Christlike...?

YOU ARE MOCKING THE LORD'S ONLY TRUE CHURCH ON EARTH (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) AND YOU WILL BE FOUND OUT. THE ELITE WILL FALL IN THE LAST DAYS.The Words of Jesus Christ, God and Saviour: (Matthew 7:15) "Beware offalse prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are
ravening wolves. YOU ARE ONE OF THE MANY WOLVES THAT HAS BEEN TRYING TO STOP THE WORK OF THE LORD."Upon your rock I will build my church, that even the gates of hell shall not come down upon it".

PRESIDENT HINKLEY IS A WONDERFUL MAN AND THE ONLY LIVING PROPHET TODAY ON THIS EARTH. I USED TO BE ANGLICAN AND MY HUSBAND WAS CATHOLIC WE ARE SO GREATFUL TO FIND THE ONLY TRUE CHURCH ON EARTH
I have never tried to stop the work of the Lord I just don't think that that work is for the sole ownership of the LDS (Utah) church. No I don't believe that that LDS(UTAH) church is the only true church on the face of the earth, I think a lot of what they do is not what God intended for his people and I believe they have gone astray form the original teachings of Joseph Smith Jr, however I think that they believe just because they have 12 million members or more that gives them the right to go around acting as God and this is wrong no matter what religion you are apart of, but I don't go around persecuting them either! Although a lot of what this person says in the email is doctrinally incorrect it pains me to think that there are people out there that have this much hatred in their hearts. I will pray for them to understand that this is not what Christ would have wanted for his people. I would urge you all to do the same.
Once again let me say without any doubt that The latter Day Church of Jesus Christ has no problem with the LDS(Utah) Mormons or any of its membership, in fact some members of my extend family are LDS, but when its members send hate filled and misguided emails of this nature I will respond and I will react because not to do so would be unwise. I am here as a representative of Christ and as a representative of Christ I see it as my duty to stop this kind of behaviour, I love Christ and I worship him as does my wife, my son, my parents, and all of my family. I do not believe that Brigham Young was chosen to be a Prophet of God by God however that does not entitle me to be derogatory in any way to any one that believes this, I just think they are misguided. I am not an Anti-Christ and I am not a Beeny Hinn, may be all those that think I am should go away and find out first what an Ant-Christ is and also who Benny Hinn is. This church is not rich it is not massive we do not have millions of pounds and we do not seek those things all I am asking is that you read what has been put down in that email and ask yourself if they are the words and actions of someone that has Christ in the centre of their lives and ask yourself if they are the actions of someone who pre ports to be a chrsitian.We have done nothing to warrant this kind of behaviour our blog site is not inciting hatred and we do not deserve this kind of abuse. All we have done since we started the blog is to reach out to people, what is so wrong with that? we are not selling children or drugs or encouraging prostitution, we are simply spreading a message of hope form God and we are telling the world that we have a new record of a people that lived in the British isles that also had a relationship with God....I ask once again what is wrong with that?
As for me all I can say with my hand on my heart that I love the Saviour and I love what he has given me and my family, and that is a belief in him and in the holy scriptures, and I would die to protect his name and his gospel. I hope that you all have a wonderful week and that Christ's presence can be felt in your lives. God bless you my friends and if your not my friend God bless you any way!
