The False Christ of Mormonism

07 May

1 Timothy 4:1; “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

kneel foot crossThe dangers of Mormonism are many, and stand out as a constant reminder for Christians to always be on alert to protect themselves from Satan. In the words of Walter Martin; ‘the cults are the unpaid bills of the church’.  We also concur with the Apostle Paul who warned the Galatians to beware of the false gospel. In this case the lies come from the Mormons’ gospel, and their Christ who sounds and looks, eerily similar to the Jesus we know in the Bible. Galatians 1:6-9
The chart below reflects a small portion of discoveries I made when I began investigating Mormonism 25 years ago. It’s obviously not comprehensive, but it’s packed with enough info anyone can use as a witnessing tool! I’ve used it numerous times to lead people in my family to the Lord (Thank You Jesus!), and I’m still using it for witnessing to those who’ve not yet accepted Jesus’ message of love and salvation.
And that beloved, brings us to a subject not always spoken about when someone is engaged in battle!!
When working in ministry (this includes anyone witnessing to unsaved family members), you can bank on spiritual warfare taking place in the home, work place, and even your own church life! I’ve always told new ex-Mormon Christians the two things they can be assured of is 1. salvation in Christ, and 2.spiritual warfare. They go hand in hand, of this there is no doubt!
In light of that, today’s post is also a twofold message of personal updates for Melissa and myself. In the next day or so, Melissa’s going to be giving a heads up on prayer needs she has for her family so be on the lookout! And the other is a personal update on my family.
On April 4, 2016, my father passed away after a long battle with cancer. In addition to his death, there  are other sad parts to this. 1.He died without knowing the Lord Jesus. 2. He chose to be estranged from me for the last 20 years of his life.
The death of my father, Morris, is heartbreaking for me. I was the typical daughter who was madly in love with her ‘daddy’, and still feel that way today. I would’ve gone to any lengths for him, yet he refused. Today we’re seeking the prayers of Christians who will be steadfast in praying for his wife, to whom he was married for 32 years. Additionally, please pray for his three brothers who don’t know our Lord, and my brother. Not one is an active Mormon, however, they still defend the Church, and participate in the typical activities that take place in the every day life of a Mormon. Funerals, family reunions, genealogy get-togethers, etc. Obviously, the roots run deep… Thanks!

If you’re LDS, we want you to know we pray for you every single day. We pray you’ll look over the side-by-side comparison chart below and decide for yourself which of the two Jesus’ you’re going to worship and follow. It’s a scary thing to do – we know this personally. However, God will always supply your every need dear one!

We’re praying you want a real relationship with Jesus and hope to hear from you soon!

With Love in Christ;

1 Cor. 1:18  …

Christian Jesus † Mormon Jesus
Only Begotten

Luke 1:35;  “And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God.””

Not begotten by

Holy Spirit

Jesus Is God

John 8:58; “Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM.””

John 1:1, 14a; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  14a And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us…”

A Strange god

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith-372; “Many men say there is one God…I say that is a strange God anyhow—three in one and one in three!  It is a curious organization.”

Jesus is God Over All Things

Chosen to be a god

He was a Polygamist

Jesus Was Married, by Ogden Kraut, pg. 27; “The first principle, ordinance, and commandment given to man was the marriage law.  It would indeed seem very peculiar that the Lord of all mankind would be a perfect example in all things except marriage.  Historical records, scriptural evidence, and reason all prove that He was the God Shepherd in obeying every law of the Gospel.”

Jesus Saves Us

1 John 1:9; “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

His Blood Can’t Save Murderers

Discourses of Joseph Smith, pg. 221; “”Remission of sins by baptism was not to be preached to murderers. All the priests of Christendom might pray for a murderer on the scaffold forever, but could not avail so much as a gnat towards their forgiveness.There is no forgiveness for murderers.

D&C 19:18-19; “Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink— Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men.”

Upheld All Things because He is God

Hebrews 1:3; “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

Volunteered for Atonement

Answers to Gospel Questions 1:32; “…before Adam and Eve were sent to the earth, and Jesus Christ volunteered to come and atone for this transgression and thus gain the victory over the devil. Therefore, he is called the “Lamb of God,”,,,”

A god

Not the Same Christ

Gordon B. Hinckley, LDS Church News, June 20, 1998, p. 7;The traditional Christ of whom they [evangelical Christians] speak is not the Christ of whom I speak. For the Christ of whom I speak has been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. He together with His Father, appeared to the boy Joseph Smith in the year 1820, and when Joseph left the grove that day, he knew more of the nature of God than all the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages.”
