Some Good Information To Dismantle Mormon Claims

Changing their name won’t change what they are: a non-Christian cult.

Proof that the author of he Book of Mormon plagiarized the KJV New Testament.

When Joseph Smith WROTE the Book of Mormon, he still had fairly orthodox views of the Christian faith. In Moroni 8:18 he wrote, For I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable being; but he is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity. Think of that: he said God was unchangeable from eternity — that he wasn’t a changeable being.  Yet in the King Follett Discourse Smith taught the new god that Mormons follow today: a man who earned his way to salvation and now lives on another planet with multiple wives. Robert Bowman has an excellent article discussing how this is a conundrum for Mormons.

The character of Joseph Smith was one of violence.  And yet he is to be admired?!?

The evolution of Joseph Smith’s “First Vision.”  The story changed so much, that it proved itself a lie.

The false prophecy of the destruction of New York City. Ask them to explain!

Destroying the Mormon myth that it was once legal to kill Mormons in Missouri.

The First “9/11” — Mountain Meadows Massacre

On 11 September 1857, Mormons, pretending to be Indians, along with some Indians they talked into joining them, massacred over 120 men, women and children from a wagon train at a location in Utah known as Mountain Meadows. This massacre is little known outside of those who study the history of Mormonism.  

The real dastardly thing about the massacre was that after days of attacks the Mormons and Indians (few of the latter) were losing too many men and were not making any headway. So under orders from higher ups, John D. Lee approached with a flag of truce, told the wagon train members that the Mormons were there to protect them from the Indians, and the only way they could do that would be to have all weapons put into a wagon, have small children in another wagon, the women and other children walking in a separate group from the men, and all would be escorted to a safe location. Instead, once they were all disarmed and separated, the Mormons killed them all except for the small children who they believed wouldn’t be able to tell the story — the children were then given to Mormon families to raise.

In 2007 a movie, September Dawn, was made about the massacre. Overall the story it told was factual but, as normal with Hollywood, they put in some characters which weren’t there (and a wee bit of exaggeration used with the tirades of the “bishop” in the story) and left out some important parts. For example: The movie showed the Mormons on horses riding next to the men they shot, while in real life the Mormons were walking next to the victims. It also showed the firing squad at the end in the open, while in real life they were hidden from public view so they couldn’t be identified and possibly have their families put in danger. So although there were errors in the movie, it is still worthwhile to see to learn about this tragedy perpetrated by so-called “Christians.”

If you are not in to reading, the following You Tube videos should be valuable for learning a wee bit about this horror which Mormons lie about. (There are many more available.)

Books I highly recommend for educating yourself about this massacre:

Mormonism Unveiled or Life & Confession of John D. Lee (with an appendix history of Brigham Young).  This book goes a very long while before discussing the massacre, but the reason for Lee writing it was to expose all the perpetrators of the massacre before he was executed as the scapegoat.

A Few Ludicrous Mormon Teachings

The Mormons can get so ludicrous that it is difficult to keep up with their bizarre, unbiblical teachings.  For example, according them Adam had the 10 Commandments!  Since the 10C were for the nation of Israel, which didn’t exist for a very, very long time after Adam died, I would say that the Mormons just tell another lie.

Of course they worship a god who can be dethroned! Personally, I want to worship a God who is a greater being than I!

The laws of Mormonism necessary for salvation are virtually endless. How can any Mormon actually believe they are saved, since it would be impossible to follow all these rules?

But the Mormons say Jesus will become a god, but Christianity teaches that Jesus IS God. If Jesus isn’t God, then how can he save us from our sins?
