I found this book to be a well-documented and informative piece on what the Mormon "Church" is about. In a nutshell, the book shows that it is essentially a neo-pagan cult, with deep ties to occult practices and Freemasonry, and with little more than a nominal relationship (largely in the name of the organization) to Jesus or the Christianity of the New Testament. While I am less sanguine than the authors about the idea that this organization bears a significant possible relationship to the coming of the Antichrist as foretold in Revelation, I have no trouble with the idea that they have shown it to be a thoroughgoing fraud. The book is very readable and, for a work on religion, a page-turner.
Pure BUNK! There are so many claims in this book, about what the LDS (Mormon) Church teaches, that simply arent accurate. Decker describes many doctrines that he claims to be actual LDS beliefs. Too bad for him and everyone else, that his research and writing is so faulty. Many of the claims arent even close to LDS theology. This book has been sold for years in various Christian Bookstores. I added quote marks, because I thought these bookstores were supposed to be honest reflections of Christ. If they genuinely are, then why would they sell a book so full of dishonesty and deception? Even if Decker chooses not to believe in the LDS religion, he should at least get his information and facts straight! Its only selling point is that it makes the reader feel religiously and intellectually superior to the LDS faithful. This is no different than what makes tabloid TV & newspapers so popular. In both Deckers books and tabloid journalism, it caters to the lowest denominator of people and their need to feel superior to others;To those who are truly uninformed concerning the LDS Church and enjoy being puffed up by secret (and inaccurate) sensationalism about LDS doctrines and Church.
This book is by far the best and truest work on what the Mormon cult really is. I was blown away when I read it, and have re-read it many times. My copy is so dog eared and underlined, it's almost unreadable! Ed Decker, as a former Mormon (like myself) does not hold anything back, but tells the truth about Mormonism honestly and openly. Everything Mr. Decker talks about in the book was taught openly in the Mormon Church until about 25-30 years ago, when they decided to cover their tracks and "act Christian". Many new converts to the LDS cult and younger LDS deny the things in the book because the LDS authorities decided to "cover them up" after "The Godmakers" came out, so recent LDS members have not been taught the things in Decker's book. But that does not mean they were not taught, (or in the case of the temple "rituals" performed) or that they did not exist at one time or still exist in LDS doctrine. "The GodMakers" pulled off the pretty lid of the LDS Church and showed the disgusting, seething filth that really lies underneath. This book is a must read for anyone who must deal daily with Mormons, especially evangelical Christians, so that they will not be swayed by this satanic counterfeit cult.
