A Collection of Links to Articles Every Mormon Should Read

There are some sites which I regularly follow, and which have excellent articles exposing the fraudulent nature of the Mormon Church.  Some articles are more in-depth than others, but all of them demonstrate conclusively that the Mormon Church worships a different God and Christ than the God and Christ of the Bible, and they preach what Paul called “another Gospel”
(Galatians 1:6) — gospel which offers no salvation.  A false God, a false Christ, and a false Gospel all add up to an eternity separated from God.  

I feel these articles should be published as often as possible to give then the widest distribution for two reasons: 1) to show Mormons that their church is false and perhaps they will decide to leave it, and 2) to show everyone else the fraudulent nature of the cult of the LDS so that they will never consider joining them.  So educate yourself with these great articles.

An excellent comparison between the Mormon “Jesus” and the Jesus of the Bible.

The Book of Abraham and the discovery and naming of Egypt.  It’s not what the LDS claims.

An index for “Mormonism 101” articles exposing Mormonism for the fraud it is.

Why was Joseph Smith really murdered?

So if Mormon leaders have abused you, it is YOU who need to repent?!?!?

The New Mormon Church History: Reviewed (Excerpts). The Mormons will never tell the truth about their history.

A big part of the origins of the Mormon church was their focus on sex. Joseph Smith had a “revelation” from “God” to legitimize adultery as “polygamy” because he was having too many relations. Hundreds, if not thousands, of Mormon men took multiple wives, with some of them stealing young women from the men to whom they were engaged. Their focus on sex is demonstrated nowadays by their sexual questioning of young people in various interviews.  Take a look at these questions and then tell me that Mormons aren’t titillating themselves with the answer they get!

The deception of the LDS knows no bounds — they intentionally hide their racism from those they hope to proselytize.

Question: "What does the Bible mean by 'you are gods' / 'ye are gods' in Psalm 82:6 and John 10:34?”  It certainly doesn’t mean you can become a god yourself!

Summary of October 2018 talk at General Conference. Some really bad and unbiblical teachings!

The lies about the name the Lord chose for the Mormon Church, and the current hubbub to drop all reference to the nicknames “Mormon” or “Mormonism.” It appears to me that the original name of the Latter-day Saints was just the “Church of Christ” in D&C 20 and 21, e.g. It was also known as the “Church of Latter-day Saints.” Seems odd that God waited 8 years (from the 1830 founding until D&C 115 on 4/26/38) to give an official name.  And the Mormons proudly accepted the nickname without any rebuke from God for many scores of years!

Was Joseph Smith’s “Inspired Version” of the Bible Completed?

The reason why the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has not published the entire manuscript [of the “Inspired Translation”] is not due to any lack of confidence in the integrity of Joseph Smith, or doubt as to the correctness of the numerous additions and changes which are not in the Authorized Version of the Bible. The members of the Church do accept fully all of these and additions as having come by divine revelations to the Prophet Joseph Smith. The reason that it has not been published by the Church is due to the fact that this revision was not completed. It was the intention Joseph Smith, while at Nauvoo, to take the scriptures up again and complete his labors, making numerous corrections which had not been made by him in the earlier revision. It is recorded in the History of the Church that this was his intention. Due to persecution and mobbing this opportunity never came, so that the manuscript was left with only a partial revision.

Joseph Fielding Smith, Answers to Gospel Questions, Volume 2, Chapter 48

Joseph Fielding Smith’s claim is the routine response from Mormons because they have been taught this lie.  The problem with this claim is that Joseph Smith himself stated that the revision was complete!  Let’s look at some LDS publications to see whether or not J.F. Smith is lying:

Doctrine & Covenants 73:3-4 (Jan.10, 1832) states that “it is expedient to translate again…it is expedient to continue the work of translation until it be finished.

History of the Church, Vol.1, p.324, under the date Feb. 2, 1833, the following is attributed to Joseph Smith: “I completed the translation and review of the New Testament, on the 2nd of February, 1833, and sealed it up, no more to be opened till it arrived in Zion.

In Church Chronology, by Andrew Jenson, under the date 2/2/1833 is: “Joseph Smith, jun., completed the translation of the New Testament.” Under the date 7/2/1833 is: “Joseph the Prophet finished the translation of the Bible.

In a letter dated July 2, 1833, and published in Times & Seasons 6:802, signed by Joseph Smith, Sidney Rigdon and F.G. Williams, the following statement is made: “We this day finished the translating of the scriptures, for which we returned gratitude to our Heavenly Father.”  History of the Church Vol. 1, p.368.

If the “New Translation” was not finished, God would not have ordered it printed.  Yet D&C 94:10 (5/6/33) said Joseph was to build a house for the printing of it, D&C 104:58 (4/23/34) orders the printing of it, as does D&C 124:89 (1/19/41), which says, “publish the new translation of my holy word unto the inhabitants of the earth.”

It is obvious that the LDS is lying about the “Inspired Version” not being completed. This isn’t surprising when you consider that the LDS was founded on lies and is sustained by lies.

The Reason for the Name of This Blog

The term “anti-Mormon” is herein used to describe any person or organization that is directly or actively opposed The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint, its doctrines, policies and programs. It is not, as critics sometimes mischievously try to claim, a catchall term for anyone who does not accept or believe in the Church, but is applied only to those who actively campaign against it. As an adjective, it applies to those specific activities that may with reasonable accuracy be described as attacks upon the Church . . . So we return to the question with which we began this survey: are anti-Mormons Christian? The answer: of course not. They were never even in the hunt. Their clerical collars and pious platitudes are simply a smokescreen to hide the ugly reality that anti-Mormonism is one of the clear manifestations of the darkest side of human nature; the side that made possible the death camps and burning crosses, the massacre of the Hutus and the wholesale slaughter of the Native Americans. Just as vicious and repressive dictatorships like to give themselves grandiose and liberal-sounding titles like “The People’s Democratic Socialist Republic of Such-and-such,” so these nasty religious haters appropriate the label of “Christian” in order to claim for themselves a specious respectability that their deeds and attitudes do not merit.

Found on a Mormon apologetics website, cited by Eric Johnson in the article, “A Major Victory for Satan” Nicknames Pronounced Blasphemous by President Nelson, The Salt Lake City Messenger, November 2018, pg.9

Don’t ever let a Mormon tell you that they don’t attack Christians; this is one very nasty attack!

Yes, They Really Did Say That!

When the plan for our salvation was presented to us in the premortal spirit world, we were so happy that we shouted for joy (see Job 38:7).

Gospel Principles, official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, pg.9, 13

Okay, let’s look at Job 38:7: 
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Who are the “morning stars” and who are the “sons of God.”  The parallelism is that they are one and the same individuals; i.e. they are angels.  We see this in Genesis 6, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, and Satan is one of them.

What was the reason the angels shouted for joy? It was because they observed the creation (the context of Job 38 ff).

So, just what are angels? They are spiritual beings created before man was created, and therefore a part of the creation they watched was man. Angels are not pre-human creatures, nor are they humans who have died.

Again I must point the Mormon to 1 Corinthians 15:44-46 which says mankind first exists as a natural body and then becomes a spiritual body after death. No where in the Bible will you find anything that even hints of preexistence. The LDS Book of Abraham is where this doctrine comes from, and that text has been proven to be a false work by Joseph Smith.

So there are three major lies in this one sentence:
1.  There is no such thing as a premortal spirit world.
2.  Angels are not pre-existing humans.
3.  The angels shouted for joy because of the creation, not because of any “plan of our salvation.”

Just remember, friends: Satan is the father of lies.
