Alma 29:1-3 “O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people! 2 Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth. 3 But behold, I am a man, and do sin in my wish; for I ought to be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto me.” — c. BC 76
Galatians 1:8 “ But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
Wow, the angel with another gospel story just never ends in the Book of Mormon. You might recall Moroni was a resurrected man turned angel of light, delivering a different gospel. Now we have another wannabe angel with the same false gospel.
We have just one question with this scenario.
Why would it be a sin wanting to be an angel, but not a sin wanting to become a god someday?
Ask the Mormon you know what they think about this and let them know you’re praying for them!
Also remind them the Bible says the heart of a man is wicked. If Alma wants the desire of his heart that’d be a sin. Jeremiah 17:9
