“For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.” 1 Kings 14:23
The Seer, Vol. 1 and 2, pp. 23-24“The Gods who dwell in the heavens from which our spirits came, are beings who have been redeemed from the grave in a world which existed before the foundation of this earth was laid.
These Gods being redeemed from the grave with their wives, are immortal and eternal, and will die no more, but they and their wives will be supremely happy. All the endearing ties of conjugal love, which existed in their bosoms when terrestial and fallen beings, are now greatly increased and perfected…” — LDS Apostle Orson Pratt, January 1853
Romans 1:22-23 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man…”
Mormons insist they aren’t polytheists, however, this LDS reference about their version of heaven clearly refutes that theory.
Ask the Mormon you know what they think of Pratt’s lesson, and lovingly explain why this is polytheism, aka, idol worship. If you’re LDS, is this your idea of heaven? I remember when I was a member of the Church, this isn’t how I envisioned heaven would be!
Furthermore, where in the Bible does it say God was redeemed from another earth?
Most importantly beloved, share the truth about our awesome God! Tell the Mormon you know what new thing you learned about Jesus today. Did He give you insight about His love for you, or did He show you something God did in the OT?
These are great segues to show how your relationship with the Lord is based on your personal experience through study. It’s not based on unproven philosophies like we’ve seen from Mr. Pratt!
With Love in Christ;
