2 Peter 2:1-3 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”
Ensign, General Conference, ‘O How Great the Plan of Our God,’ November 2016; “Brothers and sisters, we are eternal beings, without beginning and without end. We have always existed.1 We are the literal spirit children of divine, immortal, and omnipotent Heavenly Parents!
We come from the heavenly courts of the Lord our God. We are of the royal house of Elohim, the Most High God. We walked with Him in our premortal life. We heard Him speak, witnessed His majesty, learned His ways.” – Dieter Uchtdorf
1 Timothy 6:16; “Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”
The speech we’re looking at here today is one of the worst we’ve seen in quite some time. We’re praying that you dear Christian, will will jot down a few of the verses here, and share them with a Mormon today!
Please note, the few verses/passages we’ve listed are just a drop in the bucket of the myriads one can read about in His word! The Bible is replete with the same theme; there are no other gods besides the One True God, and only God is eternal!
We’ve listed about 20 biblical verses clearly stating that man is NOT immortal, NOR is he eternal. The important part of Mr. Uchtdorf’s message at General Conference is what he didn’t say.
What he should have said is, ‘Mormons believe the Bible has lied to us, and everything you read about God is wrong’. In essence, he’s called God a liar.
Job 36:26 – no one can know the number of God’s years
Isaiah 41:4 – only God is the first and the last
Psalm 90:2, 10 – only God existed before He created the earth, man’s life is very short and spent with toil and work
John 17:5 – only Jesus lived with God before the creation of the earth, man did not
Hebrews 1:11-12 – the years of man are spent and gone, only God remains forever
Psalm 66:7 – only God rules forever, man should not exalt themselves
Romans 1:20 – only God is eternal, man is not
1 Peter 1:24-25 – only God and His word endures forever, man does not
Revelation 1:8 – God is the eternal Alpha and Omega, no one else besides God exists in the same capacity – humans are mortal, not immortal
Acts 10:25-26 – humans are mortal, only God is immortal
Acts 12:21-23 – King Herod died for claiming to be immortal (He was eaten by worms!)
Romans 1:22-23 – only fools compare the immortal God to creatures like us
Acts 17:24-25 – life itself is not part of our human nature, it was given to us by God
Genesis 3:22-23 – God did not create Adam with eternal life, but kept it from him
Hebrews 9:27-28 – humans do not have a life before we came here to earth, we have only one death
John 1:1-3 – In the very beginning, only God existed, no one but God is eternal and immortal. Humans did not exist in any form or fashion prior to our creation here on earth
John 3:12-13 – humans did not have a pre-existent life, only God lived before the creation of the earth
Psalm 49:7-9 – if humans were immortal, or by nature had an eternal soul, Jesus would not need to die to give us eternal life as we’d already have this
John 5:39-40 – the Bible does not teach we are immortal, or eternal. Only Jesus gives eternal life.
The terms ‘immortal’ and/or ‘eternal soul’ are not found in the Bible anywhere. Mr. Uchtdorf earned himself a spot in our ‘Worst of the Worst Quotes’, so be sure to watch for the updates coming soon.
Above all else, pray for the dear Mormons who have read these lies, and that God would prompt them to open their Bibles to compare what God says with Mr. Uchtdorf’s lies!
