 February 22 – God warns us about false prophets in Deut. 13:6-9 “If thy brother, the son of they mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou has no known, thou, nor thy father; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him…”

 January 27 – Corrupting God’s Majesty. Exodus 15:11 “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”

Luke 1:35 “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”

January 11 –  Mormon Definition Desecrates Jesus’ Holy Name. Alpha. This is the first letter of the Greek alphabet which originates from the Hebrew. There’s no contraction of this because it’s simply a letter, and neither are there any derivatives. The same can be said for the last letter of the Greek alphabet, ‘Omega’.  Revelation 1:8 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

 January 3 — Correcting Wrong Doctrine is Wrong. Matthew 24:24 “ For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (more…)

“The Mormonites,” Millennial Harbinger 2 (Feb. 7, 1831): 93 “This prophet Smith, through his stone spectacles, wrote on the plates of Nephi, in his book of Mormon, every error and almost every truth discussed in New York for the last ten years. … …But he is better skilled in the controversies in New York than in the geography or history of Judea.” — Alexander Campbell

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned when it comes to Mormonism is how there will always be one more thing I could add to our list of reasons why Joe Smith was a false prophet. Case in point is found in our post today.

While I’ve known about the references we’ve listed below, I somehow overlooked placing them in our series, ‘Coincidences in Mormonism’. Be sure to check out the new additions where they’ll be there by the end of the day!

Moreover, also be sure to pray for Jesus to release these dear ones from the lies they’ve bought into. With the upcoming General Conference this weekend they’re sure to hear even more lies, while not hearing any biblical truths about Jesus. (more…)

 July 2 – Mandated Testimonies. 2 Timothy 1:12; “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”

“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6

 Have you ever wondered what part/parts, of the Bible Mormons would need to toss if Joe Smith’s claims were true? According to his theory the entire world had abandoned the One True God of the Bible. We see the claim of a fourteen year old kid in the following declaration –

Joseph Smith-History: 1:18-19 “My object in going to inquire of the Lord was to know which of all the sects was right, that I might know which to join. … 19 I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me…””

Before we take Smith’s word for this shocking turn of Christian events, consider the following statements of Jesus. The first one listed below has always been of great comfort to all Christians. Smith’s claim would mean Jesus didn’t pray for us —

John 17:20 “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.” (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation I:188 “If Joseph’s claims and declarations were built upon fraud and deceit, there would appear many errors and contradictions, which would be easy to detect. The doctrines of false teachers will not stand the test when tried by the accepted standards of measurement, the scriptures.”  — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Journal of Discourses 2:165 “I wish the lawyer who says we have no powers in Nauvoo may be choked to death with his own words. Don’t employ lawyers, or pay them money for their knowledge, for I have learnt they don’t know anything. I know more than they all.” — Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, IL,  June 20, 1843 (more…)

October 24 –– Jesus, not Joseph, is God’s Tender Shoot. Ezekiel 17:22-24; “Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent: 23 In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell. 24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done it.”

Luke 3:23-31; “And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, 24 Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was the son of Joseph …31 Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David”.

Today we’re looking at information the Church has supplied to their youth who attend LDS Seminary. The kids involved (9th –12th grade) are basically 14-18 years old.

Check out what it says in their ‘Doctrine and Covenants, and Church History’ Manual.

Nauvoo Expositor, June 7, 1844 “We would ask him on the other hand, if the overthrow of the Church was not inevitable, to which he often replied, that we would all go to Hell together, and convert it into a heaven, by casting the Devil out; and says he, Hell is by no means the place this world of fools suppose it to be, but on the contrary, it is quite an agreeable place: to which we would now reply, he can enjoy it if he is determined not to desist from his evil ways; but as for us, and ours, we will serve the Lord our God!” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 2:44 “Who revealed to him [Joseph Smith] the plan of redemption, and of exaltation for the dead who had died without the Gospel? and the keys and preparations necessary for holy and perpetual converse with Jesus Christ, and with the spirits of just men made perfect, and with the general assembly and Church of the first-born, in the holy of holies? Those from the dead!” – Parley Parker Pratt, Great Salt Lake City, April 6, 1853

In their routine fashion of diverting attention via means of confusion, the Church tweaked what it plagiarized from the prophet Isaiah.

The Church’s message on the importance of baptism has been stretched to its limit. They’ve made their canon so confusing, it’s difficult to determine which is worse – lying about the Israelites practice of baptism in the BC era (which they didn’t do), or retro-engineering what Joe Smith plagiarized from Isaiah’s prophecy.

Let’s sort this out to you can lovingly share this with the Mormon you know, and give demonstrative evidence of why their canon was written to confuse them.

Here’s what the original Book of Mormon said –

1830 Book of Mormon, p. 52; “Hearken and hear this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the Lord . . .” [emp. mine]
