D&C 2 has the angel Moroni stating this: “Behold, I will reveal unto you the Priesthood, by the hand of Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he shall plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers. If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.” Compare this plagiarization to what Malachi says in 4:5-6: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.” Where is any “Priesthood” mentioned?
D&C 93:12-14 has supposed citations of the Apostle John speaking about Christ, as follows: “And I, John, saw that he received not of the fulness at the first, but received grace for grace; and he received not of the fulness at first, but continued from grace to grace, until he received a fulness; and thus he was called the Son of God, because he received not of the fulness at first.” However, in Colossians we read: “For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell...” (1:19) and “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily...” (2:9).
D&C 130:3 states that “the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man’s heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.” Romans 8:9: “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.” 1 Corinthians 3:16: “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 6:19: “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?”
D&C 130: 22 claims: “The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s…”However, In Luke 24:39 Jesus said, “For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” In John 4:24 Jesus also said, “God is spirit...” Isaiah 31:3 says God is spirit; in Hosea 11:9 God says he is not a man; 1 Samuel 15:29 says God is not a man; Numbers 23:19 says God is not a man; Colossians 1:15 says God is invisible; 1 Corinthians 15:50 says that “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.”
Since we KNOW that the Bible is the Word of God, it must be the standard against which all other teachings must be judged. The Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants contradict the Bible in many areas, and have therefore been proven to be concoctions of a man.
