March 31 – Eph. 2:19-20; “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone”.
Nowhere in these two verses does it say that we must have prophets and apostles today! The verses tell us that we are no longer aliens in the common-wealth of Israel and then goes on to compare the body of Christ to a physical building, Jesus Christ being the cornerstone of it. The prophets and apostles were a secondary foundation with Jesus being the primary foundation of the church. Look to the teachings of the foundation the apostles and prophets laid for us – this is the true way to worship Him. The tense of the last sentence in this passage is past tense. It has already been built.
“Point 3. The true church must have a foundation of Apostles and Prophets. Eph. 2:19-20”.
IS GOD AN EXALTED MAN?
In order to answer this question we need to look at the source from where it came. There are many other sections on this site that will deal with the subject of Trinity, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, but for now we’re only examining the nature and character of God.
March 30 – Ephesians 5:23; “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body”.
As we’ve already seen this year, the Mormons believe they are the saviors of man. So how many saviors are there? The verse above says that Jesus is the Savior of the body. And where does it say in the verse for today that the church has to bear the name of Jesus?
“Point 2. The true church must bear the name of Jesus Christ. Eph. 5:23.”
The Many Faces and Descriptions of the Mormon Jesus
We’ve written many articles about the Mormon Jesus and have listed the links below for you to read. Here are just 60 of the things Mormons believe about Jesus and the biblical rebuttal to each. We use these examples for our PSA’s (Public Service Announcements) on the radio.
March 29 –Eph. 4:11-14 shows us how the body of Christ operates. It says; “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children being tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.
For the next couple of weeks or so we will follow the “Seventeen points of the True Church”. It’s a little business type card the Mormons hand out to help show people why they are the only ones that truly follow Jesus Christ.
“Point 1. Christ organized the Church. Eph. 4:11-14.”
While it’s admirable the Mormon Church uses the Holy Bible as a guide to support their theory, it is an ambiguous shot at best for their cover-up.
They only believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. This is their 8th Article of Faith.
MORONI – AN ANGEL OF LIGHT
My prayer for the ministry of Life After has been that we would be in God’s will at all times for all things. Whenever I think about the doctrines of Mormonism in light of what God has given and shown to me, my heart is sickened. Therefore our purpose at Life After Ministries is to always tell the truth while informing the public and offering the ultimate solution; that being the way to the real Heavenly Father. I will be asking a series of questions throughout this investigation and they will be listed at the end for quick reference as well.
