How Mormon Religion practice Lying for the Lord - "Lie in Wait to Deceive"
The Church of Rome has made it an article of faith that no man can be saved out of their church, and all other religious sects approach this dreadful opinion in proportion to their ignorance, and the influence of ignorant or wicked priests.
-- -- John Adams (2nd President of the U.S.), Diary and Autobiography
I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent.
-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Francis Hopkinson, March 13, 1789
Like Christian Zionists, practicing Mormons believe the Jews -- unspecific but primarily composed of Khazar tribe in the millions, the false Jews -- are the 'Chosen Race.' This belief warrants unconditional support for State of Israel. Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's craven attitude towards the Khazar Jews reflects this sentiment with an astonishing admission, "I feel sorry I'm not Jewish sometimes."
Like Khazar Jews, the devout Mormons practice deception not because the religion is false, but because they believe the religion is so true their lives revolve around it in the quest to achieve "mortal and spiritual perfection." In their deeply entrenched belief, religion must be defended with lies and damned lies to deflect opposition, similar to Scientology.
Khazar Jews perfected the art of bold lying, deception, and character assassination (defamation) to commit wanton fraud and social control; Mormons in respectable position of authority merely imitate the ways of the Jew in treachery.
Many practicing Mormons accept lying boldly if it serves the useful purpose to deceive the victims, which is a great irony since these adherents are themselves hopelessly deceived, never to escape the chain of religious tyranny unless they dare to discover the truth in suppressed literature (unwashed early history and ancient bizarre & contradictory sermons, such as Joseph Smith's criminal record as a con artist who conjured up polygamy as holy doctrine to get in the sack with teenaged girls, Brigham Young's Adam is God doctrine, and early Mormons' fanaticism in indulging violence as part of the temple-sanctioned blood oath) and experience.
Indeed, being a practicing Mormon has its price, and it is the selling of the soul to the proverbial Devil -- the object of Power, Money, and Control. This deception is accomplished with the false promise of the most fantastic reward for the faithful who pay tithes consistently (to enrich the Church's treasure) and serve obediently until death in order to achieve Godhood in the desired degree of glory -- Celestial Kingdom -- and reside on one's own planet in the cosmos populated with one's own spirit children that may choose to enter the mortal body of the living fetus carried by the unconverted or devout and repeat the cycle.
This is the definition of a true cult -- power and reward through perpetrating deception of self and others that ultimately wretch and destroy the existential mortality of body, mind and soul in the end.

Mormon Apostle Elder Jeffrey Holland lets rabbit out of the hole with a bizarre rant on the "divine authenticity" of Book of Mormon
Let's be perfectly clear. The Book of Mormon is a fraud that was liberally "borrowed" from obscure sources. I know this from having conducted research and coming up with my formulation how it was invented as a "get-rich-quick" scheme apart from early stock market speculation at the time. A completely invented religion is a precursor to Ponzi scheme.
It's the perfect con that led to the foundation of America's largest home-grown religion (a little over 5.8 million members), for better or worse. I watched Mormon General Conference at a local ward as an 'undercover mole' Saturday & Sunday [October 3 & 4] to learn the "values" and deflect the Church leaders' bold lies and half-truths with a self-installed bullshit detector.
What I saw and heard astonished me. The higher authorities 'intuitively' know it's a sham, yet they are desperate to hold on to 'power' -- real and imagined -- by means of extreme case of cognitive dissonance and preening theocratic arrogance.
Apostle Elder Holland was quite exasperated and angry throughout the speech in staunch defense of the Book. He condemned the unbelievers and doubters in no uncertain term, which may be interpreted to imply he believes "cold, atheistic souls should go to Hell" for denying Book of Mormon.
Elder Holland's 16 minute long rant in unhinged emotional defense of a revered literature is one of the best and most entertaining speeches in the history of televised General Conference. I consider General Conference, which is convened in four sessions on Saturday and Sunday twice a year with an additional 'private' session reserved for confirmed priests, to be mind-numbingly tedious -- until this particularly strange speech that reveals the naked display of "self-righteous indignation."
The parallel would be that one of the top authorities of the Church of Scientology vehemently defend Dianetics as an authoritative work on the field of mental health and self-meditation in an anger-laden speech, warning those who deny the veracity of L. Ron Hubbard's fictional speculative tome will have to face the pestering wrath of "thetans" that cause emotional and spiritual despair, to put it in exaggerated perspective.
(Elder Holland's reference to Solomon Spaulding and Ethan Smith [no relation to the founder Joseph], whose work formed a template for Book of Mormon hoax, begins at 9:35 in Part 1)
