Archive for the ‘Christianity v Mormonism’ Category

Mormon Doctrine, p. 363 “Mormonism is Christianity; Christianity is Mormonism; they are one and the same, and they are not to be distinguished from each other in the minutest detail … Mormons are true Christians; their worship is the pure, unadulterated Christianity authored by Christ and accepted by Peter, James, and John and all the ancient saints.” — Bruce R. McConkie (more…)

Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

As a brand new Christian who’d only been out of Mormonism for a week or two, a phrase used by the pastor got my immediate attention. Twenty-five years later I still recall how surprised I was hearing him refer to Christianity as ‘The True Church of Jesus Christ’.

Not long after that event, I was speaking at a church in my beloved Utah, and that pastor titled his talk as ‘Will the One True Church of Jesus Christ Please Stand Up?’.

The phrase they both used is the subject matter and title of our article; ‘The True Church of Jesus Christ’.

Today our inquiry is simple.

What is the true church of Jesus Christ? (more…)

This past weekend Kirk, and I had the opportunity to share our testimonies, and provide info on Mormonism at our church. (We’ll post pictures as soon as our daughter gets them to us!)

After the class, people shared stories as they usually do, of their own experience with Mormonism.

A common thread they spoke of was how people they knew who had joined suddenly became like strangers. I explained it has to do with the way Mormonism looks at Christianity.  (more…)

2 Timothy 3.16-17; “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

You’ll want to keep the verse above in mind as we examine our Mormon reference. Today we’re looking at a sermon delivered by Mormonism’s 6th prophet, Joseph F. Smith. Here we go!

Journal of Discourses 12:327–328; “I am aware that the Gospel, as revealed in the Bible, cannot be found in the world; the ordinances of that Gospel are not administered in any church except the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Today we’re examining the claims of the Church. On one of their pages of their website, it shows an image of a Christus statue that stands 11ft 1in, located in the Visitors Center in Temple Square. Below the image is their reasoning for calling themselves Christian.

1 John 4:20; “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”

lds-sharable-quote Our question today stems from a post I read on the Church’s LDS Media Library site on February 7, 2017. A caption under the headline reads –

“We cannot truly love God if we do not love our fellow travelers on this mortal journey.” —President Thomas S. Monson, “Love—the Essence of the Gospel

Delbert_L_Stapley

Today we’re looking at a speech given by Delbert L. Stapley from 1977. The underlying message of his talk screams cult behavior with the comments that Mormonism is the only true church. His speech is a classic sign of a cult.

Ensign, “What Constitutes the True Church,” May 1977, p. 21; “We know that all truth does emanate from God and is therefore unchangeable, consistent, and unified. Consequently, not all Christian churches with their dissimilar teachings can provide a fulness of truth. My intent is to assert with testimony and persuasion of scripture the reasons there can be only one Lord, one acceptable faith, one baptism, and one true church. Then if any of you are convinced you are mistaken in your present beliefs, you should have the courage to investigate and the faith to change and follow the true path Christ has outlined that assures one’s eternal happiness.” – Delbert L. Stapley

Christianity and MormonismOver the past few weeks we’ve received a lot of e-mails and/or comments on our blog and site expressing disdain for the work we do at the ministry. Some have been nice, which is always great!mailbag

My response to rude comments is this –

Why should Christians stand by and listen to the comments without defending the work God gave us to do?
