The Women of Mormondom, p. 200; “Who shall number the blasphemies of the sectarian churches against our first grand parents? Ten thousand priests of the serpent have thundered anathemas upon the head of “accursed Adam.”
Appalling, oftentimes, their pious rage. And Eve the holiest, grandest of Mothers has been made a very by-word to offset the frailties of the most wicked and abandoned. Very different is Mormon theology! The Mormons exalt the grand parents of our race. Not even is the name of Christ more sacred to them than the names of Adam and Eve.” – Eliza Roxcy Snow
Philippians 2:9-11; “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Yes indeed. Mormon theology is much different. It’s very different from what the Lord tells us in His word, and vastly different from what you’d hear at a God-fearing Christian church.
I don’t hear Christian pastors yelling anathemas against Adam and Eve, but I do hear them showing how the sin of Adam and Eve brought sin into the world, and death by sin. (Romans 5:12)
What’s terribly sickening is how Ms. Snow learned this through leaders like Joe Smith, Brigham Young, et al., and how they do indeed, exalt Adam and Eve for their sin. I’m not sure how you condone the sin of one person, and then preach against it the rest of the week, but that’s reality for every Mormon who embraces this strange, strange theology.
The other remarkable thing I’ve noticed since becoming a Christian is how the Bible will give us a passage of scripture that’s opposed to every Mormon doctrine they’ve come up with.
