No, LDS Mormons are absolutely NOT Christians. It's a cult started in 1830 and follows 'prophets' better known as profits


The information is out there, and with the help of the plethora of books and internet available today you can study yourself out of the cult of Mormonism by learning the truth.

If these posts help someone, anyone, even one person out of the cult... then it's all worth it. 


"I believe in honesty. I believe in transparency. I believe that investigators and members deserve to have all of the information on the table to be able to make a fully informed decision as to what the information means to them and how they would like to proceed with it. Anything short of this is an obstruction to the free agency of the investigator and member."   

 -Jeremy Runnells

Mormons are the only 'religion' (cough cough) to absolutely BAN their members from learning their own true history. They use a brain washing tactic of repeating from the beginning that if you read or hear anything that scares you into thinking it MIGHT say anything bad about Mormonism or the LDS, then you have hurry and close the internet browser, toss the book, shut down the person talking and walk away! It's called "anti" and they are scared to death of their members learning the truth.

Every other honest religion will tell you study. Take your time and study, learn, research... and NOT only church-approved sources. That's ridiculous! But it's what Mormons are taught. If it's not LDS sanctioned, they aren't to look at it, read it, hear it, or listen.

Up until about 10 years ago LDS Mormons were NOT ALLOWED TO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS. Young Mormons these days are told to call themselves Christians... trying to win over to new converts. But the belief system is absolutely different from even the BASIC belief system of Christianity. Sadly, most Mormons don't even know this... because they are not allowed to learn it.

SO many resources out there to gain knowledge. The CES letter is very well known. And for good reason.


CES Letter is one Latter-Day Saint's honest quest to get official answers from the LDS Church on its troubling origins, history, and practices. 

Jeremy Runnells was offered an opportunity to discuss his own doubts with a director of the Church Educational System (CES) and was assured that his doubts could be resolved. After reading Jeremy's letter, the director promised him a response.

No response ever came.

NO the author of the CES letter is not 'anti' Mormon.
Jeremy's own words: No. I reject this vague, loaded, and Orwellian term. It's used by the LDS Church and programmed into its members to turn off exposure to "the rest of the story" that the Church does not want its members to know. It's a "turn it off" switch that also kills off critical thinking in members relating to the LDS Church's truth crisis.

The reality is that I’m not “anti-Mormon.” I’m happily married to a Mormon, for Zeus' sake. I’m not anti-her or anti-anyone of my Mormon family and friends. I have no problem whatsoever with the Mormon people. These people are not LDS, Inc. and LDS, Inc. are not these people. If I’m “anti” anything, I’m anti-LDS-Inc.-hiding-and-obfuscating-its-truth-crisis-from-investigators-and-tithe-paying-members-who-deserve-to-know-all-of-the-disturbing-information. Whew…that was a mouthful. Also, I’m anti-Justin-Bieber.
Critic? Fine. Anti-Mormon? No.


The CES Letter has been debunked.
No, it hasn't.
Several apologists and organizations have attempted to debunk it and failed.


Jeremy is the leader of the "anti-Mormon religion".
No. I have a hard enough time being the leader of Jeremy Runnells and his life. I was accused by a General Authority of being the "leader of the anti-Mormon religion," which I find absolutely hysterical. The truth is that the movement - if you can call it that as it's not organized - has no leader. Nor should it have any leader.

As I tell folks who might see me as a leader: "Stop following others. Lead yourselves. Never give away your own power and authority."


Jeremy was excommunicated from the LDS Church.
No, I was not excommunicated. I resigned my membership.
Anyone who makes this claim is either misinformed or lying. I submitted my resignation during my Kangaroo Court in April 2016.


Jeremy's only goal is to get people to leave the Church.
No. My goal is not to get people to leave the Church. I have no idea what's best for people and their own lives. I don't presume to know what's best for people and their own lives.

Some people decide to leave the Church. Some people decide to stay in the Church. Both decisions can be just as valid.

My goal was to get official answers to the LDS Church's truth crisis back when I was trying to restore my testimony. I achieved my goal in a different way than I expected: the LDS Church has no answers to its truth crisis and will attempt to punish those who openly ask the questions it does not like being asked.

I believe in honesty. I believe in transparency. I believe that investigators and members deserve to have all of the information on the table to be able to make a fully informed decision as to what the information means to them and how they would like to proceed with it. Anything short of this is an obstruction to the free agency of the investigator and member.
