Random Information About the Mormon Church

The following links are to articles which add proof to the fact that the LDS is a false belief system, and it is also information that probably 90% of Mormons don’t know about. 

How do Mormons explain their changes to temple garments over the decades? Didn’t their design, etc, come from God?

Mormons really, really hate truth claims by real Christians, truth claims which say Mormons are not Christian, but they conveniently forget all the truth claims of their own which denigrate real Christians!

A new one on me — the Holy Ghost is waiting for a body to inhabit!  Oh wait, he’s really a man already!

The LDS racism was established by God, according Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, who were prophets of God.  For the LDS to LIE now to say it was just part of the times is to say that their prophets weren’t really prophets after all, and that their whole religion is a falling house of cards.  After all, how can the LDS apologize for what God commanded?

Where does history show that the true Christian faith disappeared and needed to be restored? The LDS has to deceive people to get them to believe this lie.

Just when you think the LDS can’t get any worse

How do the Mormons ever trust any of their prophets?!?

Questions For Mormons

I’m always curious if any Mormons are ever looking at this blog; I don’t seem to get many comments on my posts.

Well, here are some great questions for Mormon readers, and I’d really be interested in your responses.  (These questions come from the “Life After Ministry” blog.)

1—Who exactly, mistranslated the Bible?

2—What parts of the Bible are mistranslated?

3 – Are there any historical documents that could shed light on where the trusted translations are located?

4 – Why would Heavenly Father desert His creation and what purpose did that serve us and Him?

5 – Why do millions of people continue to use the Bible if it’s not translated correctly?

6 – Does anyone today speak the same languages the people from biblical days spoke?

7 – When did the Bible become corrupt?

8 – Where did the reputable translations go?

9 – How did everyone go the way of corruption when Jesus promised in the Bible that the gates of hell wouldn’t prevail?

Put your thinking cap on and give me some answers, please!

Articles Which Prove the False Nature of the LDS Theology

A couple months ago I came across an interesting blog by ex-Mormons, with fairly short articles examining various issues which are problematic for the LDS. The blog is called, Life After Ministry. I highly recommend you subscribe to it if you are looking for information exposing the lie of Mormonism. After all, I can’t cover everything!  Most of the links I’m posting this time are from this site.

The LDS and tithing — as with everything else they teach, there is nothing biblical about it.

Tithing seems to be virtually worshipped in the Mormon church, as well as being necessary for salvation.

The Mormons say THEIR god is the only one who hears prayers, calling the Christian God  a “nothing” god. This gives me a chuckle because it is the LDS god which is the imaginary one made up by Joseph Smith.

A great chart showing Book of Mormon uses of Greek and Latin words which didn’t exist at the time, proving of course that the BOM is a fraud.

When it comes to racism, the LDS lies about its past, deflects the truth.

How Mormons bend to the culture.  And I thought the design of the temple garments were given by God!

Have you heard Mormons say they never speak against Christians?  Well, here is an example of that being a lie.  You might also take a look at an article I wrote concerning what Mormons think about Christians

Mormons are becoming more supportive of same-sex fake marriage.  But when you worship a god-man on another planet, I guess there’s no reason to have God’s view of homosexuality.

Mormons and the Trinity.  They continue to misrepresent true Christian teachings.

Church of Jesus Christ of Rigdonite, one of the many Mormon off-shoots.

If you are a Mormon, I hope these articles will make you question what you believe.  If you are not a Mormon, I hope these articles alert you to what a fraud that church is!

Did They Really Say That?

All who have died without a knowledge of this Gospel, who would have received it if they had been permitted to tarry, shall be heirs of the celestial kingdom of God; also all that shall die henceforth without a knowledge of it, who would have received it with all their hearts, shall be heirs of that kingdom, for I, the Lord, will judge all men according to their works, according to the desire of their hearts.

Documentary History of the Church, Vol.2, chap.27, pg 380. Prophecy given at the Kirkland Temple, January 21, 1836. Given to Joseph due to his concern about his brother Alvin who died before the priesthood was restored and had not been baptized. The solution given later was baptizing for the dead.

The Bible plainly says that our works have nothing to do with earning salvation (Eph. 2:8-9, et al), but that they are the outworking of our salvation. Nothing in scripture says that one will be saved after death based on the possibility that they would have accepted the Gospel had they lived.  In fact, Hebrews 9:27 says quite plainly, “…it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” There is no second chance to hear the gospel and be baptized; once a person dies, he is immediately subject to judgment.

The lies of the Mormon church lead people to hell.

A Few Good Articles About Mormonism

Here are links to some excellent articles I’ve recently read and videos I’ve watched, which expose the false nature of the LDS faith:

Ten lies the Mormon missionary will tell you.

Mormons and tithing — part of the works needed to be saved. Odd, that one’s salvation hangs on whether he gives enough money to the church!

If Mormon missionaries told the truth when they come to your door.

Nine facts of the LDS which they don’t want you to know.

Another obvious lie of Mormonism — other planets with humans.

With the LDS, the lies and deceit are never-ending.

The Mormon Adam is NOT the Biblical Adam

Adam was among the intelligences spoken of by the Lord to Abraham who were appointed to be rulers on this earth. He was Michael, a prince, and son of God chosen to come to this earth and stand at the head of his posterity, holding the "keys of salvation under the counsel and direction of the Holy One, who is without beginning of days or end of life." This Holy One is Jesus Christ. On the earth Michael was known as Adam. In the pre-existent state he was a spirit like the others of our Father's children. In the Book of Genesis we are told that Adam obtained his body from the dust of the earth, and that he was not subject to death is inferred in the commandment the Lord gave him, that if he transgressed the divine commandment and ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he should surely die. In the Book of Mormon we are positively informed that Adam would have lived forever in the garden if he had not partaken of the forbidden fruit. So Adam was in no sense mortal until after his transgression. That his immortal spirit came from another world is verily true, just as it is true of each one of us, for we all lived in the spirit existence before we came into this world and obtained bodies which inherited mortality through the fall of Adam.

We are also informed in the scriptures that before Adam and Eve transgressed they were without children, and the fall was essential to the peopling of the earth with their offspring. When the truth in relation to the consequences of the fall were made known to Adam and Eve, they rejoiced, and Eve said:

"...Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed, and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption, and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient. ....

Joseph Fielding Smith, Answers to Gospel Questions, Vol 1, Chapter 2.

So much to address here!

First: There was and is no such thing as pre-existing intelligences or spirits waiting to be created/born. 1 Cor. 15:46: However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, then the spiritualAdam was created out of the dust of the ground and did not exist spiritually prior to that.

Second: Adam was NOT “Michael, a prince.” Michael was/is an archangel (Jude 1:9, Rev.12:7) who is referred to in Daniel as a “prince” (Dan. 10, 12). Angels were never humans, nor will humans ever be angels; they were created before humans (Job 8:37). Adam was created after the angels.

Third: Adam never had any “keys of salvation.”  There are no such things ever mentioned in Scripture, and Adam was not responsible for salvation in any way, shape, or form.

Fourth: Referring to the Book of Mormon is only teaching lies about lies, since the BOM is a fraudulent document.

Fifth: Adam and Eve were able to have children before the Fall; after all, God told them to “be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it” (Gen. 1:28); if they were unable to have children before the Fall, then God is lying to them here. The fact that they had no children prior to the fall only means that the Fall came before a child was born, for there is no reason Eve couldn’t have, or wouldn’t have been with child.

This whole ideology is based on the NEED for Adam & Eve to sin so that they could procreate. This is utter unbiblical nonsense, as anyone actually reading the Bible should understand.

(For some humor about Smith’s grammar, I’d like to point out that the phrase, “that he was not subject to death is inferred in the commandment…”, should read “implied” vs “inferred.” We infer what is implied. This is a very common mistake nowadays, but you’d think a “prophet of God” would know better.)

What about Brigham Young’s teaching that Adam was God? Mormon teachers seem to be quite mixed up as to just who Adam was.  Of course they are also mixed up about Jesus and God; perhaps they should read the Bible once in a while.

Did They Really Say That?!?

Thus to bear witness of Joseph Smith is to bear witness of Jesus Christ, who sent him, in the same way that a testimony of Christ also implies clearly a testimony of the Eternal Father, who sent Him.  On the other hand, to deny Joseph Smith outright—to deny the spiritual impressions which attest to his prophetic assignment—is to deny the Lord who sent him.

BYU Professor Robert L. Millet, “Joseph Smith among the Prophets,” Ensign, June 1944, 20.

So, if you deny that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, you are thereby denying Christ?!?!  Doesn’t that then make accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet of God a requirement for salvation? Since when is anything but faith in Christ a requirement for salvation?

Then again, how about if I deny Joseph Smith as a prophet and then I am indeed denying the “Lord” who sent him, his “Lord” being the devil!

A Mormon Lie About Easter

Answers to Gospel Questions 5:155:
“Question: “Can you please tell me why members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints do not observe Good Friday as other Christians do?

Answer: The reason why we do not observe Good Friday should be clear enough.  Easter is taken from a pagan spring holiday, that was governed by the moon. The Roman Catholic Church connected the birth of the Savior with this pagan ceremony. As you know, Easter is governed by the moon, and this spring pagan festival was celebrated according to the moon, any time in March and the end of April.  
THE RESURRECTION DATE DID NOT VARY. Now as you well know that the resurrection did not vary and it is foolish to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord at the end of March or the first of April, or middle of April or near the first of May, and put Good Friday the Friday before the Easter Sunday. I think you are wise enough to see the foolishness of it. The resurrection of the Savior does not vary year by year but it is a constant thing. Why should we follow the silly custom rather than to have one day for the resurrection?”

Joseph Fielding Smith, “Answers to Gospel Questions,” volume 5

The author of this “answer” demonstrates his total ignorance of the origin of Easter being celebrated in the Christian church.  

Easter is about celebrating the resurrection of Christ, which was originally done by Christians meeting on the first day of the week since that was the day of the week during which Christ rose from the dead.  So in essence, every Sunday is a celebration of Easter (this word originates from a German word meaning “resurrection”).

Some time during the 2nd century (long before Roman Catholicism) early Christians began setting apart a special time to celebrate the Resurrection, and it was based on taking place during the Jewish Passover.  Easter is celebrated during the time of the Passover because that is when Jesus was crucified. The Passover is based on the Jewish calendar; as described by Wikipedia: The Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, which typically falls in March or April of the Gregorian calendar. Passover is a spring festival, so the 15th day of Nisan typically begins on the night of a full moon after the northern vernal equinox. However, due to intercalary months or leap months falling after the vernal equinox, Passover sometimes starts on the second full moon after vernal equinox, as in 2016. This is the reason Easter varies in dates—Passover is “governed by the moon,” but the festival is not pagan. Passover was established by God.

Why does it matter what day we choose to specifically celebrate the Resurrection? Did it ever occur to you that the point of celebrating during the Passover is for the symbolism? So how is it silly?

Yes, over the years, a lot of pagan trappings were brought into the celebration of Easter, but that doesn’t make the celebration itself pagan any more than the celebration of Christmas is pagan due to the import of pagan trappings.

Smith’s claim about Easter is exactly like most Mormon teachings — one big LIE.  What is truly “silly” is the whole false religious cult of the Latter-day Saints.

Odds and Ends

There are a lot of articles I really intend to write, but it seems time has a way of getting away from me.  However, I have come across several articles which I think are important and informative enough to direct my readers to them.  I’m really disappointed, though, that I don’t seem to have any Mormons reading my blog, or, if they are, perhaps they have either been challenged to do their own research to learn the truth about the fraud of Mormonism, or perhaps they have no argument with my articles (snark).

Anyway, here are some articles I’ve read recently:

Firstly, this one gives links to numerous topics which are discussed.  You can read about Mormons in general, their history, their beliefs, the Book of Mormon, other Mormon “Scripture, and a whole lot more just by going to the titled links.

From the same site you have, A Mormon bears witness of Joseph Smith.  A pretty good article showing a short encounter with a Mormon and how the Mormon has no clue about what Scripture actually says. This dialog should give you some ideas.

Who Is the God of Mormonism? It certainly isn’t the God of the Bible.

Mormons find ways to excuse away facts so as to not lose their faith.  It’s called “deception by investment” — they remain deceived by their investment in their religion — to admit they are wrong is something they just cannot do.

The Mormon View of God and Christ.  Very well explained, demonstrating their God and Christ are not those of the Bible, rather they have been made up out of Joseph Smith’s imagination.

The purpose of polygamy is for salvation? In reality the purpose of polygamy to cover up serial adultery.

And of course Adam had to sin to help God accomplish his purposes!  Um, except that is about as unbiblical as it gets!

Technology and Mormon Missionary Work.

Just for some humor, perhaps there should be a Book of Mormon sequel!

How I Became a Sci-Fi Mormon

When I was growing up I got very interested in science-fiction due to lots of late movies on TV.  As I entered junior high school I began reading lots of sci-fi books and comics and became a real fan of everything science-fiction.  When I was in my 11th year of school (16 years old)  I read a new book by Erich Von Daniken titled, "Chariots of the Gods." I sat with my KJV Bible (which my paternal grandmother gave me for Christmas when I was seven, and which sat on a shelf and got dusty) and began looking at it  - as revealed to me in that book.  I accepted everything Von Daniken said as the true interpretation of the Bible: God was a spaceman. This was my theology when I was proselytized by a Mormon while I was in Combat Engineer training at 18 years old. The idea of a god who was once a man, now living near the star Kolob, fit very well with my sci-fi “theology.”  So I readily accepted the LDS faith.

If you read my full story you will see that I came to realize that the LDS was even worse than science-fiction — it is a total fraud based on an occult beginning and continually supported by occult doctrines.

Yes, I still like science-fiction, but nowadays I’m a lot more discerning!
