The other day I came across a video on YouTube of a Christian Pastor interviewing two Mormon missionaries. He asked them many questions about some of the core, deeper doctrines of Mormonism, and was told things that you probably won’t hear from the missionaries when they come to your door. Throughout the interview, the missionaries were very polite and cordial and seemed to do their best to answer the questions he asked them.

I’d like to go through some of the questions and content of the interview. I’ll make sure to link the video along with time stamps of where the question was asked so you can hear their answers for yourself.

(Just a reminder before you watch the video, anytime a Mormon uses the phrase “the gospel of Jesus Christ” they are referring to the Mormon gospel, not the biblical gospel.) (more…)

Revelation 21:8; “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

gordon-hinkley 2Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, p. 179; “Eternal Progression –The whole design of the gospel is to lead us, onward and upward to greater achievement, even, eventually, to godhood. This great possibility was enunciated by the Prophet Joseph Smith in the King Follet sermon (see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 342-62) and emphasized by President Lorenzo Snow. It is this grand and incomparable concept: As God now is, man may become! (See The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, comp. Clyde J. Williams, Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1984, p. 1.)…” – Gordon B. Hinckley

Gordon B. Hinckley was the 15th prophet of the Mormon Church. In the statement above we see Mr. Hinckley’s strong stand on what he believed was true, and what his predecessors believed as well. There’s little room for speculation, or wondering what this church has taught since the beginning of its existence. He clearly had a handle on the Church’s history.

Keep in mind, Mr. Hinckley had been the Church’s PR go-to-guru since the 2nd World War. Through his many campaigns, the Church’s reputation became more widely accepted among mainstream Christianity.

However, when we look at a number of transcripts from radio and television interviews Mr. Hinckley granted over a number of years, we’re left wondering why he’d lie about what he had so strongly declared just a few years prior.

Who Came First – God or Man?

Mormon Decisions 10Gospel Through the Ages, pg 104; “Mormon prophets have continuously taught the sublime truth that God the Eternal Father was once a mortal man who passed through a school of earth life similar to that through which we are now passing. He became God—an exalted being—through obedience to the same eternal Gospel truths that we are given opportunity today to obey.”

Book of Mormon and the Fullness of the Gospel

If the Book of Mormon contains the fullness of the Gospel as it says in D&C 27:5 & 135:3, then why doesn’t it teach the following LDS teachings?  Keep in mind these are only a handful of examples.
