PRIESTS AND QUEENS FOR GOD?
One important thing to keep in mind when understanding Mormon doctrine: pay attention to little details.
The Mormon Church teaches its members they’ll become kings and queens for God, but the Bible says no such thing.
Revelation 5:10 “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”
Stating that we could be kings and priests for God implies God isn’t sovereign, and in fact has someone, or something, ruling over Him. Furthermore, the idea women will be queens in heaven is reminiscent of biblical days when Judah was worshiping Ashtoreth the fertility goddess, whom they falsely believed was the ‘Queen of Heaven’!
The three LDS examples we’ve shown below are nothing more than idol worship. Believing you can become a god/goddess someday is blasphemous, and can’t be found anywhere in the Bible my friend!
Isaiah 43:10-11 is a great passage Christians can use when explaining there are no other gods except the One True God of the Bible. Be sure to share this with the Mormon you know!

Ensign, ‘Train Up a Child,’ April 1978 “We do not rear children just to please our vanity. We bring children into the world to become kings and queens, and priests and priestesses for our Lord.” – Also see, The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p.331.

By and by our labors will be past, and our names will be crowned with everlasting honor, and be had in everlasting remembrance among the Saints of the Most High God.”
Apostle Melvin J. Ballard (1873 – 1939)
Conference Report, October 1934, p. 121 “Whatever disappointments may come, still be true to him and I promise you, in the name of the Lord, that if not in time, in eternity, you shall have like honors and glory and privilege. If you are faithful over a few things here, you shall be ruler over many things there, and become kings and priests unto God. And you sisters who have dwelt in reflected glory will shine in your own light, queens and priestesses unto the Lord forever and ever.” – Melvin J. Ballard
