Who or What has Existed Eternally
Joseph Smith – Seeker after Truth, Prophet of God, pg 158; “Here Joseph Smith again broke with existing false traditions. It had been taught that God created the earth out of nothing, by the fiat of his word. Instead, Joseph declared that the earth was made from existing materials. That is, the earth was organized rather than created. Latter-day Saints always speak of the “creation” of the earth in that sense.” – John A. Widstoe
The book of Moses in the Pearl of Great Price is the account of the creation. Moses 2:1-31 is much like the account of the creation as told in the Bible. Now if we skip over to Abraham chapters 4 and 5 in the Pearl of Great Price we see an entirely different story of the creation. Here it tells the Mormon that the ‘Gods’ created the earth and then created man. This is just one example of how the Mormons became confused.

September 23 – Psalms 82:6-7; “They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.”

September 5 – Romans 1:18-20; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”

February 13 – 1 Timothy 1:17 says; ‘Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.’
When sharing your faith with a Mormon the key word in this verse is ‘eternal’. In the Greek it is ‘aion’, or perpetual. It is understood that perpetual, or eternal means without beginning or end. The only ‘thing’ this word applies is to the existence of God. Man is a created being, but to the Mormon they are co-eternal with God.

February 2 – In Colossians 1:15 we learn a lot about the nature and character of Jesus. “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creation.” There are truly no other words which could explain how beautiful He really is.
The LDS Church has taught its members that Jesus was probably crucified for practicing polygamy. They believe some of His wives were Mary, Martha and the other Mary. It is difficult as a Christian to even ponder the notion that He was part of such a deed.
“The grand reason of the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently based upon polygamy, according to the testimony of the philosophers who rose in that age. A belief in the doctrine of a plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesus and his followers. We might almost think they were ‘Mormons’’ (Jedediah Grant, J.D. 1:346)”. Jesus Was Married, pg. 48 by Ogden Kraut.
January 3 – elohim. In the Hebrew this mighty name for God means creator and the fullness or the Deity of God. In Gen. 1:26 God said; “Let Us make man in our image, after our likeness”.
As Christians we understand and know the Deity means Trinity. The other meaning for the word elohim means pagan gods, rulers, kings, or principalities.
Mormons do not believe in the Trinity. In addition to this, they call their Heavenly Father, Elohim. Ask them which elohim they are worshipping.
December 4 – John 1:3; “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
We see from scripture that Jesus is the Creator, nothing was made without Him. Once again the LDS Church has tricked their followers into believing a lie. Understanding the Church has changed the meanings of basic English words is one of the keys to remember when witnessing to your Mormon friends and relatives. Continue to have a dictionary on hand for reference. It’s easier to control the masses when you keep them confused; thus you have groups such as Mormonism.
“To create is to organize. It is an utterly false and uninspired notion to believe that the world or any other thing was created out of nothing or that any created thing can be destroyed in the sense of annihilation. “The elements are eternal.” (D. & C. 93:33.)” Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 169.
Doctrine and Covenants 93:29, 33; “Man was also in the beginning with God. Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither indeed can be.” “For man is spirit. The elements are eternal, and spirit and element, inseparably connected, receive a fulness of joy.”
