There is a Mormon who signs his e-mails with “Bills”. He has been e-mailing those in the countercult ministry for years. Some of us have tried to seriously dialog with him to no avail. His e-mails just keep coming in, and today he wrote:
Look, if it makes you feel any better, I would not be a Mormon either if I were as stupid as you. But I think it’s an absolute shame that you actually think God is some type of defective LOSER who’s incapable of saving everyone. Shame on you — You Naughty Boy!
Nevertheless, it’s the solemn duty of faithful Latter-day Saints to help unstick those that get stuck in their own DOG VOMIT theology. So, unlike your most favorite heretical non-biblical beliefs, our loving God knows how to save everyone and not just a select few.
Hey, I was just wondering, is this a good time to do your post-biblical “alter-call” and parrot back some lip-service LOSERS prayer?
Yikes. I understand that there is a place for firm and even provocative rhetoric at times, but this kind of stuff reminds me of Colossians 4:6: “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.”
We have mentioned his writing before in passing, but, to my knowledge, never called him by name. Well, his e-mail is Billsjane [at] aol [dot] com. Please, my Mormons neighbors, contact him and tell him to stop. The behavior is not characteristic of a Christian, nor is it characteristic of Mormons I know. Our inboxes have had enough of this. Because so many I know have received similar e-mails from him, and because it has persisted so long, I thought I should put the word out. Perhaps going public with his rhetoric will convince him to tone it down.
