Did They Really Say That?!?

A false doctrine is a corrupt doctrine; a false religion is a corrupt religion; a false teacher is a corrupt teacher. Any man who teaches a false doctrine, who believers in and practices and teaches a false religion is a corrupt professor, because he teaches that which is impure and not true. That is the trouble with Christianity today. It is not true. Christianity is, perhaps, no truer or falser than any other religion, than Mohammedanism, Confucianism, Buddhism or any other ism or philosophy.
Apostle Hyrum M. Smith, Conference Reports, October 1916, p.43

Since whoever does not belong to “the church of the Lamb of God” belongs to “the church of the devil,” as Nephi announced, then all systems of worship outside of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would be classified as “the church of the devil” by Nephi’s definition.

I keep finding snippets like these where Mormon leaders denigrate Christians all the while saying they never do.  They get upset if REAL Christians state the fact that Mormons are not Christian (witness Mitt Romney’s latest tirade against Robert Jeffress), but they pretend they’ve never spoken evil against Christianity. (Of course I’ve posted previous articles and links to others which prove differently).

It’s part of their whole game of pretending to being “persecuted” by Christians while they are “innocent” — just more lies from an organization founded on lies.

Wow! I can't believe that the Mormon church actually has the audacity to declare historic Christianity to be lost and apostate. Talk about some incredible arrogance, eh?

Look over at "Attacking Christianity" in the labels. You'll find more articles and links to articles with more citations in the same vein.

Sometimes we found people that like to make up the story. I believe that many people make 50% truth and 50% false to make people believe what they try to claim. I know everybody is different and they have their own ideas. However, why they want to waste there own time to hurt others. Maybe they are jealous or might be they believe that their religion is correct. But, we have to love one another.

Anonymous,

Loving one another does not preclude exposing false teaching. LDS is a 100% made-up religious system, in which there is absolutely no salvation from sin. It isn't jealousy which leads me, and other apologists, to expose the LDS, rather it is love; love says to help people leave cults and false teachings and go to the real Christ and real God. No one is trying to hurt anyone by doing so, but the LDS and other cults cause extreme harm to all who follow their teachings.

Hello Anonymous,

Would you call it hate to teach a child 2+2=4? How is keeping somebody ignorant love?

Even the Book of Mormon itself admits to the possibility of containing errors. That does not sound like writings inspired by a perfect God.

The Lord Jesus Christ said that the truth shall set one free (John 8:31-32).
