Chances are if you know people who are Mormon, they most likely have high moral standards and are very nice people. And if you get into discussions about the Bible, you might be led to think that they believe exactly what you believe. But there are many distinct differences between Mormonism and biblical Christianity.
Today we are joined by Dr. Lynne Wilder (Unveiling Mormonism) who joined the Mormon religion years ago and became a tenured professor at Brigham Young University. But God revealed the truth to her and she is now a committed born-again Christian who has written several books to help lead Mormons to the truth about Jesus Christ. She also hopes to educate Christians on how to witness to a Mormon.
In our third segment, we cover the reaction of the Trump administration and the U.S. to the vote at the U.N. condemning the president’s proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Ambassador Nicki Haley’s response should encourage Americans who support Israel and sovereignty. Also we touch on another update in the sad story of the abortion industry’s disregard for life as the U.S. Justice department is now doing an investigation w/FBI into Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, was the lone raised hand voting no on the Egyptian-sponsored resolution that demands President Trump rescind his declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
”We do it with no joy, but we do it with no reluctance,” she said. “The fact that this veto is being done in defense of American sovereignty and in defense of America’s role in the Middle East peace process, is not a source of embarrassment for us. It should be an embarrassment to the remainder of the Security Council.”
“What we witnessed here today in the Security Council is an insult. It won’t be forgotten. It is one more example of the United Nations doing more harm than good in addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Today, for the simple act of where to put our embassy, the United States was forced to defend its sovereignty. The record will reflect that we did so proudly,” Haley stated.
“Today, for acknowledging a basic truth about the capital city of Israel, we are accused of harming peace. The record will reflect that we reject that outrageous claim. For these reasons, and with the best interests of both the Israel and the Palestinian people firmly in mind, the United States votes no.”
Haley also bluntly said that “The United States will not be told by any country where we can put our embassy.”
