Forgivness For Your Money

Mormon 8: 32 Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say: Come unto me, and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins.

I know a guy who is seeking forgivness from the LDS church for some past transgressions. He was excommunicated and naturally, stripped of all his "priesthood blessings". Now he is struggling to get it all restored and one of the requirements that he must do to be forgiven is to pay his tithing.

I could go on and on but the scripture I just quoted above is right out of the Book of Mormon. No where, in any scripture, does it say that money is required for forgivness OR salvation.

The LDS church surely does.

The scriptures say, "money is the root of all evil".

Exemption clause: Unless it goes to tithing.

Just another evil apostate... said...

There are a lot of exemptions in the LDS church...

No sex, unless you're Joseph Smith and an angel with a lightsaber (flaming sword) makes you do it.

Don't kill, unless you're Brigham Young and you catch your wife cheating on you.

Be honest, unless you're any church leader and something in church history is not "faith promoting".

Don't build up and pray to idols, unless it is the Christus statue in the visitor's center.

etc...
