Understanding Mormon Vocabulary

  [PDF]

Over the past year, in articles that I have been publishing on the ministry web site, I have included the text of some tracts that were written and published in the early years of ‘Take Heed’ Ministries.

These articles have related to PURGATORY, CHRISTIAN SCIENCE, THE HARE KRISHNAS, YOGA, THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT and JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES and JESUS.

The relevant articles for these can be accessed on –

This article will include the text of the remaining tract published in those early days of ‘Take Heed’ Ministries and it was titled ‘’Understanding Mormon Vocabulary’. One of the difficulties with assessing the views of differing religious groupings such as ‘The Mormons’ is that they use vocabulary that is familiar to true Christians but the problem is that they actually define that vocabulary in distinctly scripturedenying or scripture-contradicting terms.

U S Presidential candidate Mitt Romney IS a MORMON and IS NOT a CHRISTIAN.

As the preliminaries for the next U S Presidential race begin to hot up, on the Republican side, one name that is emerging as a possible front-runner is that of Mitt Romney – no stranger to such Presidential candidacy hustings.

It is well known that Mitt Romney unashamedly declares himself to be a Mormon, an enthusiastic member of ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’.  An interesting article outlining Mr Romney’s Mormon connection and involvement appeared in the New York Daily News prior to his last Presidential attempt back in 2007/2008 and it can be located on http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/cliches-faith-mitt-mormonism-matters-article-1.256807

Another excellent article entitled ‘Mitt Romney’s Mormonism’ is located on http://www.irr.org/mit/Mitt-Romneys-Mormonism.aspx and gives much background to his longstanding family connections with the religion.

News From The Front – June 2000

Dear praying friends,

This newsletter is being issued to you in the midst of what will be [DV] a very busy travelling season as you will read on page 16. Not only is ministry business taking me overseas but ministry needs are also leading Margaret, mum Andrews and myself to a new house that will be better suited to the space requirements of “Take Heed”. The prospect of leaving number 11 Ballynahinch Road has brought a renewed sense of gratitude to our Heavenly Father for the many happy memories that we will take from it. Here we shared together the last 10 years of my beloved father’s life until he went home to glory in 1995. Here Margaret and I have enjoyed our married life since 1987. Here we have been able to offer hospitality to and enjoy fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ who like ourselves are seeking to “earnestly contend for the faith” [Jude 3]. But as they say ‘life moves on’ and we look forward to serving God and His people from our new location [full details will be posted to you as soon as they are available]. Briefly but sincerely a big ‘thank you’ to the many who have given to the MISSION 2000 – by the time you receive this I hope that ALL the priests concerned will have been contacted [Full details will be given with my September newsletter {DV}]. In our next issues we will be including a series of articles that I was asked to write for the youth magazine of a particular denomination and which appear to have been well received [beginning with The Mormons]. We pray they will be helpful in equipping God’s people in these days.

News From The Front – June 1999

Dear praying friends,

It is with mixed emotions that I come to prepare this latest issue of News From The Front. On the one hand I will be reporting on a very happy and blessed time of ministry and fellowship that Margaret and I enjoyed during our visit to America. Then on the other hand I will be voicing grave concerns on issues that I believe the true Church of the Lord Jesus Christ must seriously face up to and with courage address.

In addition “Take Heed” is about to totally ‘go it alone’ [purely of course from a human standpoint – see page 16]. However we move forward with words from Joshua 1:7 as our heavenly prescription “only be thou strong and very courageous” and words from Genesis 46:3-4 as our heavenly pledge “fear not to go…I will go down with thee”.

Margaret and I want to record our thanks to all who have been so faithful and encouraging in recent months and we can assure you that God has been responding to the many prayers that have been offered on our behalf. Humbly we ask you to pray on for His cause and for His glory.

News From The Front – March 1999

Dear praying friends,

With my last newsletter I enclosed a short note giving details of new funding arrangements which were being considered in relation to my involvement with a sister ministry known as Breda Centre. The new arrangements were agreed and as most on my UK mailing list know via a letter that I sent to them towards the end of January there was a substantial reduction in support from this sister ministry with effect from 1st March. This was perfectly correct as over recent years the “Take Heed” workload has increasingly outstripped my duties with Breda Centre. The letter sent at the end of January invited recipients to consider support by means of an annual bankers order payment with effect from 1st March. I have just been overwhelmed by the response to this letter – not only from individuals [either through standing order arrangements and/or gifts] but also from a number of Church fellowships. I hope all will understand why I have been unable to acknowledge each individual response but I want now to say to everyone “THANK YOU”

I can confirm that God through His people has once more proved His faithfulness and this need that arose has been fully met. [Psalm 118:23]
