Empathy is what a person needs in order to walk a mile in the shoes of another person. So, put yourself in the shoes of a basic Christian who knows nothing about the theology, doctrine, and history of Mormonism and has not researched the Mormon Church on the Internet or in a library. This person believes in the Bible but has not read very about Jesus in the Bible. So, one day the person gets a knock at his door and finds two young Mormon missionaries standing there, who tell the person that he can be with his son forever who recently died from leukemia. The person is still grieving about his son and is very interested when he is told by these missionaries that the Bible tells about a plan of the LDS Church that will allow a family to be together forever in Mormon heaven. Hence, the person invites the Mormon missionaries into his home and the two Mormon agents begin their five programmed discussions. These missionaries don't tell this man the following things: 1, That the ultimate goal of a Mormon elder is to become as great as the Mormon father-god; 2, That the Mormon father-god was born biologically as a man on some earth-like planet in the cosmos; 3, That the Mormon father-god is separate and distinct from the Mormon Jesus and that he had a biologically born father-god who was born on another earth-like planet in the cosmos; 4, That the Mormon father-god had a female woman wife, or wives, on the planet where he was biologically born and that the Mormon father-god worked his way to godhood with his wife, who worked to become a heavenly mother-goddess in order to celestially procreate through celestial sex with the father-god all of the spirits that have been born biologically on the earth; 5, That every worthy Mormon elder has the destiny of doing everything that the Mormon father-god has done, which includes the procreation of a first-born scion spirit, which will be a version of the Jesus of this earth as a savior for the new father-god's creations, the creation, or organization, of an earthlike planet somewhere in the cosmos with trillions of spirit children; 6, The Mormon missionaries don't tell the investigator man anything at all about the Mormon heavenly mother-goddess, but only refer to (heavenly parents) in their discussions.
The foregoing theological facts were very scantily mentioned in 13 essays that the Mormon Church created and posted on the LDS.org website, yet no mention of these essays is made during the time the Mormon missionaries are in the man's home NOT telling the man the basic features of Mormon theology. The context of "Lesson 21-Man May Become Like God" is not to any extent mentioned during the five discussions.

Now, let's follow this man through the chain of thought that he has regarding what the Mormon missionaries have told him are biblical and Christian theological facts about Mormonism. During the third or fourth discussion the man is told that as a member of the LDS Church he will be expected to tithe or pay 1/10 of his income to the LDS Church in Salt Lake City, in addition to other expected monetary contributions in order to be WORTHY to go the Mormon temple to be married for time and for all eternity. The man is told that he must commit himself to tithing before he can be baptized into the Mormon Church. When I was a stake missionary elder and ward mission leader for the Mormon Church, from 1970 to the year 2000, I, with the two fulltime Mormon Missionaries, arranged for 45 men and women to write tithing checks to be given to the particular ward bishops on the day of their baptisms.
Just imagine how this man would feel if he were given a copy of "Lesson 21-Man May Become Like God" by a Christian friend a short time after baptism, and realized all the aspects of Mormon theology that he was not told by those so seemingly honest missionaries. I have seen this stark reaction and the anger provoked in the minds of these deceived individuals. Two out of three of the individuals who enter the Mormon Church through baptism without knowing the content of "Lesson 21" immediately renounce Mormonism after reading "Lesson 21." If this does not constitute deliberate fraud, I don't know how else to describe it. This is what Judge Shelby, and all other federal judges, need to realize. The Mormon General Authorities don't believe, to any degree, the spiel given by the fulltime Mormon missionaries to investigators in their discussions. These apostles, prophets, seventies, and other Mormon office holders know that if the true facts of Mormon theology are told to Christian investigators, t they would never agree to be baptized into the Mormon Church. So, these Mormon executives conspire to create a system for deceiving Christians into believing that Mormon theology is biblical and Christian. Basic empathy is what the Nazis lacked in their total disregard for human compassion and truth, and that lack of empathy is what made them disregard the suffering of the millions of Jews they slaughtered. Just like the Nazis, the Mormons have very little, or no empathy.
