“Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 46:8

The Seer, p. 224 “God is a God of truth, and cannot lie without violating the great perfections and attributes of his nature, which if he should do, his power and glory would cease, and other Beings who are filled with all the fullness of his attributes, would succeed in his place. But God knowing all things, and loving righteousness and truth with a perfect love, it is impossible for him to violate the great unchangeable principles of his nature. (more…)

Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 674 “When the Kingdom of God is fully set up and established on the face of the earth, and takes the preeminence over all other nations and kingdoms, it will protect the people in the enjoyment of all their rights, no matter what they believe, what they profess, or what they worship. If they wish to worship a god of their own workmanship, instead of the true and living God, all right, if they will mind their own business and let other people alone. 2:310.” — Great Salt Lake City, July 8, 1855 (more…)

The Gospel through the Ages, p. 115 “When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the Gospel—you must begin with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation. But it will be a great while after you have passed through the veil before you will have learned them.” — Milton R. Hunter, 1945 (more…)

“For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.” 1 Kings 14:23

The Seer, Vol. 1 and 2, pp. 23-24 “The Gods who dwell in the heavens from which our spirits came, are beings who have been redeemed from the grave in a world which existed before the foundation of this earth was laid.

These Gods being redeemed from the grave with their wives, are immortal and eternal, and will die no more, but they and their wives will be supremely happy. All the endearing ties of conjugal love, which existed in their bosoms when terrestial and fallen beings, are now greatly increased and perfected…” — LDS Apostle Orson Pratt, January 1853 (more…)

Lectures on Faith [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1985], 5:2, pp. 48-49 “And he being the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, and having overcome, received a fullness of the glory of the Father, possessing the same mind with the Father, which mind is the Holy Spirit, that bears record of the Father and the Son, and these three are one; or, in other words, these three constitute the great, matchless, governing and supreme, power over all things; by whom all things were created and made that were created and made, and these three constitute the Godhead, and are one; the Father and the Son possessing the same mind, the same wisdom, glory, power, and fullness—filling all in all…” — Joseph Smith, 1834 – 35 (more…)

Achieving a Celestial Marriage, p. 4 “Man has descended from God; in fact, he is the same race as the Gods. His descent has not been from a lower form of life, but from the Highest Form of Life; in other words, man is, in the most literal sense, a Child of God. This is not only true of the spirit of man, but of his body also.” — LDS President John Taylor, Also found in Course of Study for Priests, 1910. p.35 (more…)

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…)

Yesterday we saw Russell Nelson proclaim his delight in Joe Smith’s insights regarding the Bible, and how they were ‘amazingly consistent’.

Today we’re wondering how Mr. Nelson would explain Smith’s false prophecy in calling God a liar…

The very foundation of Mormonism declares God’s word to be wrong, and therefore, all of Christianity has been worshiping the wrong God.

History of the Church 6:305-306 “It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see.

These are incomprehensible ideas to some, but they are simple. It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with him as one man converses with another, and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did….

Here, then, is eternal life—to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all gods have done before you, namely, by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace, from exaltation to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to dwell in everlasting burnings, and to sit in glory, as do those who sit enthroned in everlasting power.” — Joseph Smith, April 1844 (more…)

September 2 – Philippians 2:5-7; “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”

Today we’re looking at excerpts from a member of the early LDS Church; George Laub. He was a devoted follower, and his loyalty to Smith’s ideologies is unfortunately, all too apparent. You can find this excerpt at the link below, and also at George Laub’s Journal, Book of Abraham Project (BOAP), pp.16-17.

[Spelling as in original.]

The Words of Joseph Smith, p. 382; “George Laub Journal. The Scripture Say I and my father are one & again that the father son & holy ghost are one I John 5 ch. 7 vers But these three agree in the Same thing & did the Saviour pray to the father.

I pray not for the world but those [w]home he gave me out of the world that we might be one, or to Say be of one mind in the unity of the faith but Every one being a diffrent or Seperate person & So is god & is god & Jesus Christ & the holy ghost. Seperate persons. but the all agree in one or the Self Same thing (more…)

New Era, ‘Testify of the Restoration,’ April 2017; “I testify that Jesus Christ is God’s Son in the flesh as well as in the Spirit, Himself a God and the Son of a God—the Only Begotten of the Father and the Savior of all mankind.” – Jeffrey Holland [emp. mine]

Mormon Doctrine, p. 409;  “Plurality of Gods … Three separate personages — Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — comprise the Godhead. As each of these persons is a God, it is evident, from this standpoint alone, that a plurality of Gods exists. To us, speaking in the proper finite sense, these three are the only Gods we worship. But in addition there is an infinite number of holy personages, drawn from worlds without number, who have passed on to exaltation and are thus gods.” – Bruce R. McConkie [emp. mine]

February 6 – Exaltation. Paul told us in 2 Thess. 2:4-8 those who exalts himself to sit on the throne of God would be revealed as a man of sin. It’s the man of wickedness who does this and then the Lord will “consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming”.

Life of Joseph the Prophet, p. 514; “It has been my intention for a long time,” he said, “to take up this subject and lay it clearly before the people, and show what my faith is in relation to this interesting matter. And if it rains I will preach this doctrine, for the truth shall be preached. I will preach the plurality of Gods. I have selected this text for that express purpose. I wish to declare, I have always and in all congregations, when I have preached on the subject of Deity, proclaimed the plurality of Gods.” – Edward W. Tullidge
