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 Mormonism is NOT Christian

     salt lake mormon temple 2Yesterday 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
