When I was growing up I got very interested in science-fiction due to lots of late movies on TV. As I entered junior high school I began reading lots of sci-fi books and comics and became a real fan of everything science-fiction. When I was in my 11th year of school (16 years old) I read a new book by Erich Von Daniken titled, "Chariots of the Gods." I sat with my KJV Bible (which my paternal grandmother gave me for Christmas when I was seven, and which sat on a shelf and got dusty) and began looking at it - as revealed to me in that book. I accepted everything Von Daniken said as the true interpretation of the Bible: God was a spaceman. This was my theology when I was proselytized by a Mormon while I was in Combat Engineer training at 18 years old. The idea of a god who was once a man, now living near the star Kolob, fit very well with my sci-fi “theology.” So I readily accepted the LDS faith.
If you read my full story you will see that I came to realize that the LDS was even worse than science-fiction — it is a total fraud based on an occult beginning and continually supported by occult doctrines.
Yes, I still like science-fiction, but nowadays I’m a lot more discerning!
