Deseret News reported yesterday Mitt Romney To Officially Announce Presidential :

Mitt Romney will officially launch his presidential candidacy next week in New Hampshire.

The Washington Post says: “Romney, who is regarded as the race’s (Republican) frontrunner, will formally announce his presidential campaign next Thursday, June 2 in New Hampshire, his campaign confirmed (Thursday) night. … Romney’s announcement will take place at the Scamman’s Bittersweet Farm in Stratham.”

By choosing to announce in New Hampshire, Romney’s campaign is indicating its intent to specifically target the Granite State — a decidedly different tactic from how Romney proceeded during his 2008 campaign.

“That tells you a great deal about the different strategic approach Team Romney is applying to the current battle for the Republican presidential nomination as compared to four years ago,” PBS News Hour reported on Friday. “Iowa became paramount for Romney in 2008, and he was never able to recover from his loss to Mike Huckabee there. Romney now needs to calibrate just how much time and money to invest in Iowa while keeping the spotlight on New Hampshire, where he holds a significant lead in the polls, owns a home and is well-known from his years governing next door in Massachusetts.”

Columnist Chris Cillizza, writing for the Washington Post, also rehashed Romney’s 2008 strategy: “Three years ago, Romney tried to run the table of early-voting states — spending millions of dollars in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina only to lose all three and, with them, the nomination. … In the 2008 race, Romney tried to run as a native son in New Hampshire, but after being edged by former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee in the Iowa caucuses, he was ambushed by Arizona Sen. John McCain in the Granite State — finishing second, six points off the lead.”

Despite his newfound New Hampshire focus, Romney will spend all day Friday campaigning in Iowa.

7 Questions Christians Must Ask Before Voting For A Mormon

In the current field of candidates, is Mitt Romney the best person qualified to be President, of the United States? 

However others may disagree with me and trust Romney and look to his money and say he is our man and is our best candidate.  I think Christians can size those things up in different ways.  I am thankful that many, many, Evangelicals are waking up to the idea that Huckabee can win and the poll numbers have shown a mega-shift to Huckabee in recent weeks.

I believe Mitt is not the best candidate and he is no more electable than Huckabee anymore.

However, I do not think the above questions are the only questions for me as an Evangelical that I should be asking.  If I am asking myself, would Romney be an okay President?, then I might support him but there are real concerns and some risk.  You know, the flip, flop, flip, again stuff really does concern me.

But there are several other questions that I think Evangelicals should ask before supporting Romney for President or any other Mormon for that high office.

They are these…

#1  Is Mormonism a false cult that deceives people and leads many to hell?

Answer yes!

#2  Is Mormonism evangelistic in that it seeks to grow by making converts to its faith?

Answer yes!  It is aggressively evangelistic and successfully as one of the fastest growing cults in our time.

#3  Does Mormonism seek to confuse people by representing itself as a genuine Christian group.

Answer yes!  They have spent tons of money on ad campaigns for this purpose.  I have met many times with Mormon missionaries and their initial talking point is that “we are Christian too”.   I have heard at least once or twice Mitt Romney himself represent Mormonism in interviews as a Christian group.

Mormonism has a major agenda to deceive people by describing itself as a Christian denomination.   They intentionally make less of their differences.  For example, I will take a quote from the news this week regarding something that you have no doubt heard about.  This is a response to a question Gov. Huckabee had asked if Mormonism teaches that Jesus and the Devil are brothers.  Here is the response by the LDS spokeswoman that has run in almost every article I have read about the controversy over Huckabee’s question.

 We believe, as other Christians believe and as Paul wrote, that God is the father of all,” said the spokeswoman, Kim Farah. “That means that all beings were created by God and are his spirit children. Christ, on the other hand, was the only begotten in the flesh and we worship him as the son of God and the savior of mankind. Satan is the exact opposite of who Christ is and what he stands for.”

The two parts that I have underlined represent false teachings of Mormonism that are put in here as if all “other Christians and Paul” believe and taught these too.  The phrase, “only begotten in the flesh” sounds fine but Mormonism has a completely different take on it than Christians.  They actually teach that Elohim came down and had sex with Mary and that is why Jesus is the ”only begotten”.  See my blog page at Pastors4Huckabeeblog.com to read more or find documentation for this.
