Deseret Evening News, December 27, 1919, Section 3, p. 7; “I know that my Redeemer liveth; I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God; I know that God is a being with body, parts, and passions and that his Son is in his own likeness, and that man is created in the image of God. The Son, Jesus Christ, grew and developed into manhood the same as you or I, as likewise did God, his father grow and develop to the Supreme Being that he now is. Man was born of woman; Christ the Savior, was born of woman; and God, the Father, was born of woman. Adam, our earthly parent, was also born of woman into this world, the same as Jesus and you and I.”

Isaiah 46:3, 5, 9; “Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: 5 ¶ To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like? 9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.”
A ministry colleague summed up Mormonism in a very discerning way when he said Mormonism ‘applies our limitations to Him’. The key to seeing the Mormon people saved is by telling the truth. Truth outweighs everything! As Christians we can witness in love by telling the truth in all things. I guarantee the majority of Mormons will be offended, but this is never your fault! This is a reaction based on inner pride.
Still another made a comment I praised God for is when I read the statement ‘it is incumbent that you question their beliefs and share the truth of the word of God’ with them. He also said ‘real Christians wouldn’t throw another Christian under the bus’. See UK Partnerships for Christ & Beaconapologetics.wordpress.com, respectively.
You see, Mormonism does apply man’s limitations to the Only Omniscient God. There’s simply no better way to phrase this problem, and that’s just what it is – a massive problem they’ve created all by themselves. The only way they’re going to get out of their mess is by hearing the truth about the real Jesus and confess their sins. And PRAISE GOD a Christian besides myself has stated the obvious! He’s absolutely right by stating Christians don’t malign each other!
As stated a few days ago, Walter Martin reminded us the cults are the unpaid bills of the body of Christ. It’s most certainly incumbent on us to share the truth! The more we share, the less impact they have, and the latest stats show the word is getting out!
As a child I used to pray God would keep Christians around until I grew old to meet some like I read about in His word. Today I’m seeing it come true!
The most important thing in all this is to glorify Him because He is the ONLY GOD. He is the ONLY way to salvation simply because He is the only God. His majestic presence in our lives commands due respect and honor, for He is, theOnly God.
