A defense of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints against the Modern day Pharisees who seek its destruction.
One of the characteristics of the true church of Jesus Christ is that it will always face persecution and attack. This book outlines the similarities between the Pharisees of old who sought to persecute Jesus and his kingdom, and their modern day counterparts.
This book is based on real life experiences of the author occurring over his lifetime including his many years of service as a chaplain within the U.S. Army. Those years of service placed him in close contact with the preachers and doctrines of Christianity, and occasionally exposed him to the intricacies of the age-old tactics used by the modern day Pharisees.
This book provides insights into how the modern disciple of Jesus can counter the influence and arguments of the modern Pharisees and further reveals their motivations, techniques, and weaknesses.
It is also written for those enemies of truth, in hopes that if they read this book, they will awake to see themselves in the unhappy position of fighting against the living Christ and will, like Saul of Tarsus, turn from their course and embrace what they once sought to destroy.
It is almsot comical irony that the modern day Pharisee, who angers over the promulgation of scientific theories of evoution or seethe at the science of carbon dating with its claims as to the age of th earth, in one great leap of faith, embrace the science of DNA for no other reason than that, in their own minds, it refutes the hated Book of Mormon. Such leap is reminiscient of the Pharisees of old, who though they hated and despsied Rome, and all it stood for, yelled out "we have no king but Ceasar"
