Mormons Eyes And Ears Are Closed Off To God

“Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” (Matthew 13:13-15)

Jesus is speaking to the Mormon people in Matthew, chapter 13. Their eyes are open to what their false church leaders and prophets have to tell them, but are closed off to what God could teach them through the Bible. They refuse to learn from Christians. Instead, they share their message, and if we are not interested, they usually end the conversation. This is because their eyes are closed off to the things of God we would share with them. For this reason, they are unable to learn what the Bible actually teaches when it comes to salvation, the atonement, marriage, the afterlife, the trinity, and more. If only they would allow themselves to listen to what we have to say, then they could unlearn what is false and draw near to God. Unfortunately, there eyes are closed, lest they open them and see what we are saying is true. Not only this but their hearts are waxed gross. This means that worldly matters mean more to them than God. Most of these people act one way at church and live another way outside those walls. Therefore, there desires to learn the things of God are often none existent if a Christian comes to talk with them.

“But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.” (Matthew 13:16,17)

As Jesus said, Mormon people ignore what Christians want to share with them “lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” (Matthew 13:15) However, this is often too hard for Mormons to do. Denying what they have learned could lead to losing a friend, spouse, family member, and even their marriage in a divorce. They would lose their comfort in the Mormon system. Temple trips, Callings at church, church activities and more, would be no more. However, this is exactly what Jesus wants. For people to come into the true faith of Jesus no matter the cost if what He wants. Even if it causes division in the family, it is necessary for us to be saved. We should never deem what we have in life is more important than what God can do for us. Our comfort in different things does not help us in terms of being saved and going to heaven. Jesus taught that division within families is necessary for one to be converted and establish a relationship with Him. Jesus said this in Matthew, chapter 10. It is written…

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:34-37)

In Jesus’s Name, I declare these truths. Amen.

  1. Although it’s frustrating, I do understand why they use whatever tactics possible to keep their faith alive. The cost is too great to leave or let others know the battle they have with questions and doubts. From all the accounts I’ve read, the only way they’ve found the truth is through reading or learning God’s Word without interference from Mormon doctrine. That involves the enlightenment from the Holy Spirit.
