Liberty University Email Campaign

Note: If you do not know what all the fuss is about go here.

It seems as if the leadership of Liberty University has forgotten that Mormonism is a cult.  I was taught in multiple classes at Liberty University that Mormonism, because of its abandonment of the Gospel of grace, is a cult.

Inviting Glenn Beck to speak in convocation, and allowing him to give a religious message was a horrible decision, and one that is contrary to the vision of Liberty's founding. Ultimately the Jesus of Mormonism is not the same as the Jesus of the Bible.

Something at Liberty needs to change. I am recommending that every student, alumnus, faculty, staff, or donor to Liberty University who has an issue with the recent actions of giving a false teacher a platform speak, send an email to the university on Monday, May 5th. I think a concerted effort of 100 people or more all writing on the same day will have more effect than emails trickling in over a few weeks.

At a minimum, I want the faculty at least to disagree with the statement by Glenn Beck that Mormonism is a Christian denomination, and I want them to officially state that the Mormon church is a cult.

This is a Gospel issue, and in being a Gospel issue we should focus on the Gospel in our emails. The main focus of these emails should be that Mormonism denies salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Tips for these emails:

1. Be polite
There is no need to type in all caps, or to sound angry or mean. We are correcting falsehood, and we want Liberty University to do the same thing.

2. Be firm
Be firm on the Gospel. Pointedly, but respectfully, explain how Mormons deny the truth of the Gospel according to the Word of God.

3. Make no personal attacks
Follow Paul's example in Galatians 2. We are not upset because we are somehow better than those who made these decisions; we are upset because they are neglecting the Gospel that brings us all together. Remind them that unity apart from unity in the Gospel is a false unity.

The best person to send these emails to seems to be Johnny Moore whose email address is:

If anyone has an email address for Jerry Falwell Jr. please post in the comments and I will add it to this post.

Share this with others who are connected with Liberty for maximum effectiveness!
