Sometimes people, even eminent people, will say that it is rude to members to call them cultists or belonging to a cult when they are sincere LDS, and that this simply alienates people and does not build the bridges to enable them to hear the actual facts about the deceptions in their religion.
However, I know that shock can be very important, and even necessary, in order that sincere LDS may show their integrity and find out for themselves why that has been said to them.
A very great problem and a main reason naive people join the LDS organisation is because they believe the hype from the organisation that it is a Christian church. I do not choose to play into that. Of course God breaks through everywhere but that does not stop the organisation being a cult and its members being caught up in deception. It takes gentle maturity to negotiate these areas Alex.http://www.bible.ca/mor-god-had-sex-with-mary.htmhttps://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j ... 8319,d.d24
