The 2012 election is seen as a ‘turning point’ in American history.
But it may similarly be a turning point in the on-going contest between the Mormon Church and traditional Christianity.
Mormons believe the Bible is true only “as correctly translated.” And when is the Bible not true – when it disagrees with the Book of Mormon, and the modified explications of doctrine arising from modern revelations by Mormon prophets. Thus Mormons religiously proselytize Christians.
Church members have long believed in a time “when the Constitution will hang by a thread” and a “Mormon elder will come to save it.”
While this Mormon “White Horse Prophecy” was repudiated in 1918, Mitt Romney has stated “he considers the so-called 'White Horse Prophecy to be a matter of speculation and discussion by church members" .
Even US senator Orrin Hatch and Glenn Beck have stated that they believe that this is now the time when the Constitution is "hanging by a thread."
Romney’s election to the presidency will certainly be seen as a fulfillment of this Mormon folklore and presented to non-Mormons as proof of the supremacy of the vision of Joseph Smith for a new Christian faith in America . . .
Even today, US senator Orrin Hatch and conservative commentator Glenn Beck, a Mormon convert, have stated that they believe that this is THE time when the Constitution is "hanging by a thread."
In light of over 150 years of Mormon folklore, Romney’s election to the presidency will certainly be seen as a fulfillment and validation of that which was spoken of in the Church’s early days.
Former Bishop Romney.who is now a Mormon Stakeholder, is certainly aware of the folklore-implied/prophetic significance of his potential election!
Does Mittens think he is the Mormon messiah?You betcha?
Micheal D. Moody, Mitt's fraternity brother at Brigham Young University, said:
Mitt's made it clear to his friends that he was pre-ordained to fulfill the White Horse prophecy, to become the Mormon President who would save our Constitution and transform America as Joseph Smith prophesied.
Mormon historian David L. Bigler, Mormonism’s has written founding theology was based upon a literal takeover of the U.S. government.
The office of the American presidency is the ultimate ecclesiastical position to which a Mormon leader might aspire.
