The Seer, p. 205

Q. What has become of the Apostles’ successors?

A. The Apostles had no successors…

Q. After the Church of Christ fled from earth to heaven, what was left?

A. A set of wicked Apostates, murderers, and idolaters, who, after having made war with the saints, and overcome them, and destroyed them out of- the earth…

Q, Who founded the Roman Catholic Church?

A. The Devil, through the medium of Apostates, who subverted the whole order of God…” – Orson Pratt, January 1853

Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Incredibly, and quite tragically, the mindset of Mr. Pratt has been adopted into the hearts of Mormons.

His made-up set of Q&A’s is the same thing we hear from LDS members who write to us at Life After, and their missionaries who knocks on our door.

Contrary to Mr. Pratt’s claim, we have plentiful evidence showing otherwise. According to

Christianity Today, in 2012 there were roughly 384,000 congregations in the US alone. Secular sites such as Quora, estimated there are roughly 37 million worldwide, including 34,000 denominations.

While we may not agree with Quora’s analysis of who’s been classified as a bona-fide Christian, one only has to look around to know Mr. Pratt’s claim is false.

In my simple life, I’ve spoken to at least ten different denominations. Each has been a pleasure as I’ve witnessed countless people worshiping the true Jesus of the Bible!

Pray today that the Mormons you know will open their hearts to the Lord, and believe His promise in Matthew 16:18!

With Love in Christ;
