One God 2.0

As you might imagine, leaving Mormonism comes with a laundry list of new experiences and seemingly never-ending surprises. One of the biggest shocks for me was learning there’s only one God.

For the next few days we’re going to look at some of the key biblical elements of the Trinity that sets Christianity apart from Mormonism. We pray it’ll be a handy reference portal Christians can use when witnessing, and for Mormons who want to know more about the god they worship. Today our subject matter is God. Tomorrow we’ll look at Jesus, and on day three we’re looking at the Holy Spirit.

Our new series will replace/update our existing page entitled God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit of the Bible.

This is an email I sent to Michelle this morning. She thought it would make a great mini article, so here you go. At first I thought about titling this What in the world is going on within the body of Christ?,  but I think “Yikes” will do. 🙂

“And here I thought my area was still somewhat Christian (even though it’s mostly Democrat), but it looks like this weird stuff is everywhere. This was on my FB feed under the “Good Things Happen in Fayette County” page. Oh, and the person who posted this has a rainbow on their avatar. (eye roll) You have no idea how much I want to say something about this in the comment section, or maybe you do? 😉 “

Mormon Decisions 10I was wrong.

In my article about Joe Smith and all his wives, I incorrectly said he had 57.

I visited the all Mormon website familysearch.org and found ol’ Joe’s pedigree chart listing all his wives. To be honest, I was surprised they’d be so bold to do such a thing, be that as it may, they proudly published his ne’er-do-well activities epitomizing his short 39 years on this earth.

flowers-cartoon-8The Visiting Teaching Message this month focuses on the forgiveness and mercy of Jesus Christ and how Mormons can apply it to their lives.

As I began reading the message I was struck by the quote from Dieter F. Uchtdorf where he said: “Forgiveness for our sins comes with conditions”.

He then goes on to say. “We must repent, and we must be willing to forgive others.”

woman chalk circleIt’s been almost ten years since the Lord saved me from Mormonism. In that time I’ve learned so much about God, salvation and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I still have a lot to learn, but I’m trusting in Him to teach me as I continue to walk with Him.

So when I hear of believers who have walked with Him so much longer than I have embracing things that are clearly pagan, unbiblical, or just plain silly it breaks my heart.

Mormon Decisions 10God (Elohim) an Exalted Man

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 345; “God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted Man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens. That is the great secret… It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the character of God and to know…that he was once a man like us. Here, then, is eternal life—to know that only wise and true God, and you have got to learn how to become Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you. .. God himself, the father of us all dwelt on an earth the same as Jesus Christ.”

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000Lesson 21 covers chapters 1-3, and 8 of 1 Samuel (with no mention of chapters 4-7). I don’t know why I continue to be amazed at the way they bulldoze over God’s word in a Sunday school class just to get to the bits and pieces they need to use for their lesson. But I am!

Mormon Decisions 10www.lds.org; “Under the direction of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created the heavens

and the earth (see Mosiah 3:8; Moses 2:1). From scripture revealed through the Prophet

Joseph Smith, we know that in the work of the Creation, the Lord organized elements

that had already existed (see Abraham 3:24). He did not create the world “out of

nothing,” as some people believe.”

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000As our readers know we’ve been posting the weekly Old Testament Sunday school lessons the Church is going through and to save my sanity I’ve put them all in one place to make it easier to access.  If you want to find out what they taught when, you can find the widget over on the right! 

We’re praying you use these as a witnessing tool or if you’re LDS you allow the information presented here to give you further insight about God and who He is.  We do this out of respect and not to bash the Mormons.

With Love in Christ;

Michelle Grim

1 Cor 1:18

The Creation

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000This next lesson in the Old Testament centers on what Mormons are taught about the Creation of the universe in the Book of Moses and Abraham.

Again we find ourselves in this next lesson with Moses and his description of the vision he had of the creation of the universe in Moses 1:27-42. And then Moses 2:1-25 we see a reiteration of the creation account found in Genesis 1.

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000Like the first lesson in their study of the Old Testament lesson two has very little to do with the Bible, but has many references to other books in their canon.

This next lesson focuses on the Mormon belief that all of us lived before we came to earth in a premortal life with God. In this premortal life we lived as spirit children of God his goddess wife/wives. These spirit children include every person who has ever been born including Jesus and Satan, and 1/3 of the spirits who chose to follow Satan.
