It is funny that you are using exactly the same part of the gospel that for centuries has been applied to expose Jose Smith as a false prophet, but
this time to support him , since the only clear idea I perceive here is that you are supporter of the Mormon Mitt Romney in his Presidential campaign.
Even the church of LDS recognizes that the verses of the scripture you are trying to apply on me are the ones usually are used against their Prophet:
Angel Moroni as Angel of Light
Moroni is an Angel that never before was revealed to any of the ancient prophets of the Bible, a new angel that only Jose Smith met, even that is also
accepted by the LDS church:
You claim that I am here moving a Political agenda, isnt it? well look what some Christian denominations think about this same topic, even mentioning
the same exact verse you have used against me, are they also doing politics?:
By the way I am commonly known among my readers as the Angel of Lightness, just to avoid misunderstandings.
However, let me clarify that the Bible never said that every Angel of Light are evil, it says that Satan is so smart that he can even take the aspect
of an Angel of light to deceive the people, this was a metaphore used to describe his terrible power, so you are reading the verse by the other way
around, there is a simple error of logic in your biased interpretation.
The fact that Satan can take the aspect of any holy figure if he wants, since he is the master of lies and deceiving, does not mean that every
supernatural apparition comes from him. By the way he perfectly knows that one of the attributes of God is precisely the Light.
To show you my point notice that even the angel that announces birth of Jesus came radiant of Light to the shepards:
Luke 2, 8-9 NIV
8 That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. 9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them,
and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I
bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city
In the same way the Angels of that announces first time the resurrection of Christ, had a extremly shinning aspect:
Luke 24, 3-7 NIV
3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that
gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do
you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son
of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’
Now, the unknown angel Moroni came certainly to Joseph Smith with the aspect of an Angel of Light, but carrying with him a different gospel than the
one that was prayed by the apostles of Christ, a gospel saying that Jesus came in the flesh to America probably at the same time he went to Palestine,
about two thousand years ago, and also that gospel include facts, events and teachings that were never be written before in any other Holy scripture.
So he was somebody with the aspect of an Angel of Light, that might be authentic or a good evil falsification of the divinity, but not conclusive
evidence of his real identity, but additionally he was also preaching something that was not a trully Christian truth, but a new Gospel, so who can
By the way The aspect of Christ in his glory is also as a being entirely covered by light, these verses of the bible clearly describe him in that
Luke 9, 28-31 NIV
28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the
appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor,
talking with Jesus. 31 They spoke about his departure,[a] which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
Pls Read also the following description of St John,
Revelation 1:12-16 NIV
12I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13and among the lampstands was someone
“like a son of man,”b dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14His head and hair were white like
wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of
rushing waters. 16In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in
all its brilliance.
Finally do you recall what are the title St John uses to describe Christ in the begining of his Gospel?
John 1: 1-5 NIV
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
