The Godmakers




Thanks, Virginia, for this clip on Mormon theology. If you are Mormon and feel it is inaccurate, I'd sure welcome your response as well. The object is not to offend people, but to get truth out.

  1. Hey, and before anyone says anything... yes, it's hokey and obviously very old. But I wonder if the cartoon is an accurate overview of Mormon theology.

  2. I don't know if you have any Mormons that look at your blog. All I'm gonna say is I am having to bite my tongue until it bleeds right now.

  3. Oh, I don't think I do, BUT sometimes when you link to something, people following that topic will come see what's up.

    Seriously. I posted once on "Tony Alamo's" church and got comments months later. So it's possible.

    I'm not trying to mock people who are Mormon, but if this cartoon is correct in its depiction of theology (nevermind the hokiness a sec), I wonder at folks who say that Mormons are Christians.

    That's all.

    Hey... I wanna know what you think, too. :]

  4. Well, if this video is accurate, Mormons are not Christians. From what I know I really don't understand why people would join the Mormon church other than being deceived or because they were born into it and are brainwashed. That video is like Scientology with a Christian flair. I was waiting for a Tom Cruise cameo. Are you still wondering what I think?

  5. The sad thing is that in the mormon religion, you don't even find out this stuff until you are much deeper into it. Even my dad the other day ran into a mormon and asked him about all this stuff. It took a long time but he finally admitted that everything in this video is true. He told my dad that most mormons don't know till they study the roots of the religion and get much deeper into it. It is by far not Christianity and is exactly what Satan would say, "you will become a God". That's a old trick he's used since the beginning of time. and... men still fall for it to this day.

  6. Meant to tell you that there is a whole video you can buy The Godmakers. This is just one small clip. You will see many people talking about their experience growing up in it and what it was like trying to get out of it. There is just so much to this that even some mormons don't realize. They would never tell them this stuff right up front because no one would go for it. It's called "conditioning".

  7. Good point, Virginia!

    Hmm... not sure what Catherine is thinking... maybe she thinks Tom Cruise should play "Mormon Jesus?" LOL

  8. The movie is available here You can also post a review of what you think about it.

    I would suggest Godmakers II if you want to here about Lillian LeBaron Chynoweth from the FLDS.

  9. This video is absolute garbage and if you really want to know the truth about the mormon church talk to a mormon not an ex mormon or a bucnh of uneducated men that can't get their facts straight. Or call the missionaries. I'm sorry, but as a mormon I can say this video is absolutely false and offensive. Doesn't it make a bit more sense to get your facts from someone who is mormon instead of antimormon literature? Do you really think these people are representing the church with the truth....of course not. Go to Lds.org, talk to the missionaries and pray about it. Please find out for yourself and don't listen to this junk.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
