Mitt Romney says he believes in God and is a very religious person. But what God does he believe in? Mitt Romney is a Mormon. It has been long established by sound scholarship that Mormonism is a cult which deviates substantially from historical Christian orthodoxy.
A repeated principle found throughout Scripture is the admonition against either adding to or taking away from the word of God. Mormons regularly disregard this issue by accepting sources other than the Bible as authoritative.
As a result, Mormons use many of the same names and terms familiar to historical Christianity, but with definitions, meanings and characters that are in stark contrast to established Biblical norms. They change definitions to fit their theology.
The God of the church of the Latter Day Saints is different from the God of the Bible; the Jesus of the Mormons is different from the Jesus of the Bible; their concepts of salvation, resurrection and eschatology all differ from Biblical Christianity.
Mitt Romney says he hasn’t slept past 4:00 AM in months because he’s invested so much time and effort researching the facts relevant to the impeachment of President Trump, resulting in his decision to vote for guilt and conviction. I wonder if he examined the facts that much when it comes to the tenets of his own religion. Because I know from my own research that the more familiar you are with what the Bible teaches, the more you see the deceptions of Mormon theology.
Fundamentally, there are only two ways to view the impeachment of the President. Either he is presumed to be guilty or he is presumed to be innocent. House Democrats (as well as the media) have consistently been clear for three years in their repeated accusations that they have already judged him to be guilty. So much so, that on the very strength of those accusations, they feel Trump should be impeached.
But that concept turns American jurisprudence on its head. In this country, a person is always presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. It is the job of the accusers to prove their contention of guilt. It is not the job of the accused to prove his innocence.
For all of Mitt Romney’s moral pontifications to the contrary, the House managers failed to prove their case. Despite repeatedly claiming they had irrefutable proof and incontrovertible evidence, they in fact did not. All they could do was to repeat their accusations and use language of mischaracterization and outright lies.
Mitt Romney, as well as those who are opposed to President Trump, not only go along with the presumption of his guilt, but lean on that argument, even rejecting evidence to the contrary. On the face of it, that’s un-American. As I looked at the leftist extremists visibly demonstrating their opposition to the President’s State of the Union Address, I could not help feeling the deep distress that these people are not just anti-Trump. They are anti-American and essentially anti-freedom. They are a threat to my freedom.
Mitt Romney claims to be acting in good conscience by voting to oust Trump from office, but the entire foundation of his beliefs and the basis of his principles are not only flawed, they are false to begin with. You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. There is a difference between what the farmer harvests from his fields and the excrement he uses to fertilize the soil.
