A Children’s Game for Brainwashing

Mormonism Research Ministry recently reported on a children’s game for Mormons, found in a children’s magazine.  This game leads children into accepting the LDS works-oriented gospel.  It’s a perfect example of how brainwashing into cult teachings begins at very young ages so that the children will never learn to question what they are taught.

The game is called, “Your Path to Heavenly Father.”  It has a game card listing all the necessary “Steps to Salvation,” as follows:

Premortal life
Get a body
Be baptized
Receive the Holy Ghost
Take the sacrament
Keep the commandments
Go to the temple
Be sealed to your husband or wife
Be resurrected

WOW!  What a horrible burden to place on children, let alone on adults!  Can you imagine the fear instilled in children when they are told they must do the impossible task of keeping the commandments to be saved?

MRM notes that there are some really important things missing here: But what about having faith in Jesus? What about loving Jesus? What about trusting Jesus? Don’t Mormons need Jesus Himself to be saved?

MRM’s article has this damning conclusion:  Isn’t it odd, then, that Jesus is absent from the “Path to Heavenly Father” and the Mormon children’s list of “Steps to Salvation”?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints asserts that Mormonism is a Christian religion. But leaving Christ out of salvation, even in a children’s game, is the sort of omission that makes that LDS claim ring hollow.

There is a step in this game that says believe in Jesus and be baptized. While I know they have the wrong Jesus, I would hope Christians would not be deceptive.

Hi Slyvia

I don't understand your last phrase -- do you mean deceived or deceptive?
