Mormons and Ron Paul

Linked below is a comparison of official Mormon Church declarations or quotes by prophets to the views of Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. According to the comparison, Ron Paul is much closer to church teachings than Mitt Romney. This might be a good thing to show your LDS friends who might be on the fence of who to support.

Church leaders are fallible

When I was growing up in the LDS Church, they always taught us that statements by church officials were all fallible personal opinions, except what was put into the 4 sacred books, which were guaranteed to be inspired by God.

The Mormon Plan for America and The Rise of Mitt Romney
09/20/2011 | Ed Decker

Mormonism Teaches That:

The Constitution will hang by a thread, to be saved by the Mormon Church.

Will the Constitution be destroyed? No, it will be held inviolate by this people; and, as Joseph Smith said, "The time will come when the destiny of the nation will hang upon a single thread. At that critical juncture, this people will step forth and save it from destruction." It will be so. (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses [JOD] Vol. 7, page 150).

…And when the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call for the "Mormon" Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it. (Brigham Young, JOD, Vol. 2, page 317).

…We shall spread abroad, and the day shall will come – and this is another prediction of Joseph Smith's - I want to remind you of it, my brethren and sisters, when good government, constitutional government, liberty will be found among the Latter-day Saints, and it will be sought for in vain elsewhere…… The day will come when the constitution and free government under it will be sustained and preserved by this people. (George Q. Cannon, JOD, Vol 23, page 104).

The Mormons will usher in a Theocracy, or "The Kingdom of God", directed by the Lord's Prophet (LDS).

With the restoration of the gospel and the setting up of the ecclesiastical Kingdom of God, the restoration of the true government of God commenced. Through this church and Kingdom, a framework has been built through which the full government of God will eventually operate. … The present ecclesiastical kingdom will be expanded into a political kingdom also, and then both civil and ecclesiastical affairs will be administered through it. (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, page 338).

Brigham Young confirmed that when the LDS Kingdom of God was in control, the American flag would fly above us.

When the day comes in which the Kingdom of God will bear rule, the flag of the United States will proudly flutter unsullied on the flag staff of liberty and equal rights, without a spot t sully its fair surface; the glorious flag our fathers have bequeathed to us will then be unfurled to the breeze by those who have power to hoist it aloft and defend its sanctity. (Brigham Young JOD, Vol. 2, page 317).

The Mormons will possess the whole earth and reign over it.

As the Civil and Religious laws become one,

the "United Order" will become the "Kingdom of God".
