Beware of Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Posted on 01/19/2012


If this man was a temple recommend holding member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, then he lied his way into that recommend. One of the questions we as members are asked in the interview that determines worthiness to enter the holiest places on earth is whether we align ourselves with organizations that teach doctrine contrary to teaching of the Church.

At the time, I was a member of what was called The Freeman Institute. This was a group founded by BYU Professor and FBI Agent W. Cleon Skousen. This was not an officially recognized LDS group, but rather a quasi-political body of deeply conservative stripe. Skousen’s name is well known among 20th century right wingers. His conservative credentials are impeccable and he is the author of several highly regarded books, including THE NAKED CAPITALIST and THE NAKED COMMUNIST. He is well-known among groups such as the John Birch Society.

Obviously this man aligned himself with contrary organizations, therefore lied in his interview, and was therefore not a true follower of Jesus Christ.

Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
