French and the Book of Mormon

The French word ‘adieu’ is used at the end of the book of Jacob.

This time frame is inconsistent with when French became a language circa 700 AD.  The end of the book of Jacob supposedly took place between 544 and 421 BC.

Familiar Spirits

Gospel Doctrine, pg. 435; We are told by the Prophet Joseph Smith, that “there are no angels who minister to this earth but those who do belong or have belonged to it.” Hence, when messengers are sent to minister to the inhabitants of this earth, they are not strangers, but from the ranks of our kindred, friends, and fellow-beings and fellow-servants. The ancient prophets who died were those who came to visit their fellow creatures upon the earth.

Polygamy and Mormon Church Leaders

Wilford Woodruff 1807-1898

Journal of Discourses 13:166; “If we were to do away with polygamy, it would only be one feather in the bird, one ordinance in the Church and kingdom. Do away with that, then we must do away with prophets and Apostles, with revelation and the gifts and graces of the Gospel, and finally give up our religion altogether and turn sectarians and do as the world does, then all would be right. We just can’t do that, for God has commanded us to build up His kingdom and to bear our testimony to the nations of the earth, and we are going to do it, come life or come death.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, December 12, 1869

Why Mormons are not Christians

     Yesterday I received an e-mail from a Mormon asking me why I teach that Mormons are not Christians.  Here’s a copy of his note:

“I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am not here to bash but curious about your website and why ex members leave the LDS faith. One thing that I did read that is false on your website that I would recommend changing is section titled “Mormon Neighbors Witnessing”. It stats that we are not Christians. This is absolutely false. Our Church is the called “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”. We believe in God the Eternal Father and in his Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. We do believe in Prophets, Joseph Smith was a prophet and so was Adam, Noah and Abraham just to name a few from the Bible. The most important aspect is we are Christians and we believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and yours.

He is the Savior and redeemer of the whole world. We are known as Mormons because of the Book of Mormon. We believe the Bible is the word of God. Do you really believe that we are not Christians and that we don’t believe in Jesus Christ?”  Ryan

“Jesus was married?!” 

That was part of a conversation I had with a temple worthy Mormon just a few months ago.  She explained to me that her son was being taught the LDS doctrine of Jesus being married.  It was the catalyst to bringing them out of the Church and accepting the real Jesus of the Bible.

John Taylor

Life of John Taylor, pg. 255; “In this our first issue it may be expected that something would be said in relation to this matter. This we undertake as cheerfully as any other task; for we are not ashamed here in this great metropolis of America * * * to declare that we are polygamists.” – B.H. Roberts

Yesterday, Brian David Mitchell was sentenced to life in prison for the abduction and rape of Elizabeth Smart in 2002.   Let me make it perfectly clear before I begin here; I cannot condone anything Mitchell did to Elizabeth Smart.  I can’t imagine the horror she must have lived through day in and day out for nine months.

Christians and the body of Christ

The Mormon Church has gone out of its way in the past two decades to ensure the message gets out they want to be known as a Christian church.  The top-notch commercials on television and the appearance of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on various stations are nothing short of brilliant in the advertising venue.

THE 8th ARTICLE OF FAITH: THE “BAIT AND SWITCH” OF THE MORMON CHURCH

One of those is the 8th Article of Faith that reads: “We believe the Bible to be the word of God insofar as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.”
