Any Other Gospel
History of the Church 6:365; “…I beseech you to go forward, go forward and make your calling and your election sure; and if any man preach any other Gospel than that which I have preached, he shall be cursed…”
Galatians 1:6-8; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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.”
Well there are a few things to look at in this passage of Mormon history.
1. Why is he quoting the Bible if he doesn’t trust it?
2. He left out the part of Paul’s warning about an angel delivering another gospel – hmmm…I wonder why.
3. Would the prophets of Mormonism today be accursed? The gospel of Joseph Smith’s day is not the gospel of 21st century Mormonism. No polygamy, no restrictions on people’s color, temple ordinance changes have been made and Mormon sentiments towards Christianity (at least publicly) have all changed drastically over the years.
