MORMON IS NOT
Latter Day Sinners, not Saints!
Mormon President, Gordon B. Hinckley, spoke at the 1998 fall conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Outdoor speakers echoed his speech throughout Temple Square as people from many countries gathered to hear their false Prophet, Seer and Revelator.
I stood at this Mormon Mecca preaching the gospel of Christ and holding a DOUBLE CROSS as an A & E television camera rolled. They showed it several times on national television.
Hinckley spoke in glowing terms about his goal of 100 temples worldwide by the year 2000. I thought of Acts 7:48: “God does not dwell in temples made with hands.” I asked:
“What do you think of 100 temples by year 2000?”
“I think it’s great!” answered an Elder clad in white shirt and tie. “We build them in smaller cities now.”
I explained how a community church in a small town has about 100 temples! They were speechless until I explained that each Christian is a temple where God’s Spirit dwells (1 Cor. 3:16,17). Wedding groups and young people doing two year missions walked
in and out of Temple Square. Mormons are not Christians since their false Christ is the brother of Satan who cannot forgive sin.
An office building towers over the temple like David and Goliath. “Worldwide business is carried on here,” said an elder. A statue of Brigham Young, 2nd President, stands at Temple Square. After the death of Joseph Smith Jr., founder of Mormonism (1805-44), Young led 30,000 from Nauvoo, Illinois, 1300 miles in 1846 to Utah. They were driven from Ohio, Missouri and Illinois for practicing “the divine principle” of polygamy. Joseph Smith’s family did not follow Brigham Young’s hijacked splinter group but formed the Reorganized LDS Church in 1860 with Joseph Smith 3rd as President.
“In a country where religious unanimity is ever less important but material achievement remains the earthly manifestation of virtue, their creed may never face rejection again.”1
My double cross has Jesus’ name and the temple prayer: “God be merciful to me a sinner.” God forgave, justified, a tax collector after praying this in the temple (Luke 18:10-14). I stood with the cross by Brigham Young’s statue as the sun set behind snow capped mountains and a cold wind blew. A young lady approached:
“May I give you a Christian paper?”
“Thank You! I am a recovering Mormon.”
Turning to Luke 18, I mentioned how Mormons ignore the temple prayer. They claim to become gods, get married, sealed, baptized, learn Masonic handshakes, take blood oaths and receive priesthoods but cannot find forgiveness of sins in their temples. God’s temple is a house of prayer (Mark 11:17). Demonic temple oaths keep people in darkness and give power to murder and lie (Ether 8:16). Their false gods and false Christ, like Buddha, cannot forgive sins. Mormons do not believe they have a sin nature but are gods in embryo. They believe the devil who said, “You shall be gods” (Genesis 3:5). Paul spoke of latter day sinners with doctrines of demons (1 Tim. 4:1).
“Your cross and temple prayer helped me focus on what is really important,” said the recovering Mormon.
The tabernacle choir sang and President Hinckley said, “Your singing is good enough for today but not for tomorrow!” In this pressure cooker of criticism nothing is right or enough as they raise the bar like a high-jump competition.
Husbands and wives are given secret names in the temple. Men use them to call wives from their graves at resurrection.1A Disobedient wives will not be resurrected as polygamous heavenly mothers in the Celestial heaven eternally pregnant bearing spirit children to populate worlds organized, not created, by their husbands who are exalted heavenly fathers on their own planets. Mormon men as overbearing dictators use this lie as a choke-leash for suffocating control and manipulation of women. Like the Taliban, dehumanized, granite hearted men make rules and women obey in a dictator/doormat fashion or they will not be resurrected. It is a master/slave relationship.
Homicidal parents masquerading as Christians drive non-Christian youth to be more like Jesus on their own strength like flogging a sick horse to win the Kentucky Derby. Their false Christ, the brother of Satan, cannot give inner strength to run the Christian race. These stereotypes are not allowed to think for themselves but rubber stamp ancient lies. They are Satanists for Satan is the author of the whole belief system.
The suicide rate in this suffocating protocol is high as young people give up trying to be perfect gods in embryo earning salvation. Polygamy and domestic violence are out of control as oppression hangs over Utah like a dark cloud proving they are Latter Day Sinners not saints. They stress family unity but reports tell of young people driven from home if they do not go on a mission at age 19. God calls us to go into these dens of iniquity, weeping, bearing precious gospel seed (Psalm 126:6). Brigham Young declared: “Take up the Bible; compare it with LDS religion and see if it stands the test.”2 We are doing precisely what he suggested. Satan is the puppeteer and Mormons are his puppets.
MORMONS ATTACK CHRISTIANS
“Your literature attacks Mormons. We don’t attack other churches,” said Utah elder, Dennis, in a pit-bull tone of voice sitting on his bike in Chilliwack, BC., Canada. He did not know his history of attacking others. I wore sunglasses while standing on Salt Lake City streets with the cross to deflect stones and other debris thrown by motorists. I thought they would burn me at the Mormon Stake. Some issues are worth the passion of life and are more important than personal survival.
Circling of wagons continues: I took a lot of buckshot on November 2003 as I stood on a sidewalk with the cross near the 140 St., Surrey, BC. Mormon church. Soon Elder Dean from Ohio and his partner from England came into the war zone trumpeting the virtues of Mormonism. Dean had to restrain his rageaholic friend who blew a fuse causing his light to go out while bearing his false testimony. A man on a scooter came from the church and shouted, “You are abominable!” Another Mormon broke my Jesus sign in Langley and took part of it. She later phoned objecting strongly to my sign which reads, “Mormon Is Not Christian.” Obviously they think we should not respond to their attacks, just roll over and play dead. We must warn the cultists. True love raises red flags to warn others of danger.
First: They attack all Churches: In New York state, 1820, a Mormon god, an exalted man of flesh and bones, allegedly appeared in a vision to Joseph Smith at age 14. He asked, “Which church should I join?”
Satan answered: “Join none of them; they are all wrong; all their creeds are abominable in my sight and all their members are corrupt.”3 This attacks ALL churches, teachings and members, “the abominable Mother of Harlots.”4 The Book of Mormon, Jacob 2:23-35 declares polygamy “abominable” but Doctrine & Covenants, section 132, says you must practice it to enter heaven. It is obvious Mormons are also abominable not only us. Our counter-attack presents the truth in love. Smith prayed to his false gods and received a demonic answer. There is only one true God and all others are devils (1 Cor. 10:20).
Second: The Book of Mormon attacks us:
It says all other churches are “the whore of earth” (1 Nephi 14:10). They teach the true church abandoned faith, became apostate, and ceased to exist 1800 years ago. How could the church disappear when Jesus said, “The gates of hell would not prevail against it?” (Matt. 16:18). They do not claim to be another denomination of Christianity but the one and only “restored” church. With such shark mentality how can Mormons say they do not attack others?
Christians must hang together or these impostors will hang us separately. We are not attacking cultists but defending the faith by answering their attacks on us. In its beginnings, Mormon emphasis was to come out of bankrupt Christianity and become Mormons. Now they try to blend with us appearing to be another denomination of Christianity. Their false gods and false Christ blend with us like oil blends with water. Buddhists do not want to be called Christians but Mormons do since they have no credibility of their own through historical or archaeological verification. The Great Apostasy started in the 1800s with Mormonism, 7th Day Adventism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science, Darwin etc.
Third: They attack the Bible: They say the world’s only objective standard of truth is not translated correctly and is a substandard authority below the Book of Mormon. Which came first, the real $100 bill or the counterfeit? The Book of Mormon had over 4,000 changes since its beginning in 1830. Why do they give free Bibles on television promotions if they are not translated correctly? Smith wrote his own “Inspired Version” [perversion] and wove his false teachings into it similar to Jehovah’s Witnesses and their New World Perversion. Spiritual cancer continues to spread as they package, repackage and rubber stamp ancient lies.
Fourth: Mormons attack dark skinned people:
Joseph Smith, looking for Klan endorsements, said, “Had I anything to do with the Negro I would confine them by strict law to their own species.”5 In 1978, pressure groups forced the Mormon god to change his mind and give them fake Aaronic and Melchisedec priesthoods. They remained cursed evidenced by “the mark of Cain,” dark skin. The curse in the Bible refers to sin not skin. The only supreme race is the human race. Only whites sing in the tabernacle choir! Color of skin, eyes or hair makes no difference to God. Only 5% of the world’s population is white so, according to Mormonism, 95% are cursed.
Fifth: Mormons attacked early settlers:
“In 1857, Mormons dressed as Indians attacked an Arkansas emigrant wagon train enroute to California. At the burial site ten miles south of Enterprise, Utah, 120 names are etched in granite slabs. 20 years later, John D. Lee, adopted son of Brigham Young, was shot by firing squad as he sat on his coffin. He was the only one of 50 perpetrators ever tried and convicted of Mountain Meadows Massacre. www.mtn-meadows-assoc.com”6
May 6, 1843: Joseph Smith said the U.S. constitution will one day hang by a thread. Mormons believe they will rescue it and transform the government into a Mormon run theocracy, the beginning of the Kingdom of God to rule the world. In the 2000 U.S. presidential race, Senator Hatch from Utah tried to blend with Christians but lost in Iowa. He blamed his loss on a “bias against Mormons thinking they are not Christians.” He quoted Smith saying, “The constitution is hanging by a thread.” Voters knew the difference between wool and fur!
Latter Day Sinners feel superior to Christians. At times they interrupt and say, “We are not here to learn but to teach.” Egomaniac, Smith, boasted he did a greater work than Jesus in keeping the church together and was dead in 30 days. In 1844 he was shot in a Carthage, Illinois, jail and died as a murderer not a martyr. “A man that boasts in his own strength shall incur the vengeance of God.”7 Smith was in jail for burning the Nauvoo Expositor press after it exposed his polygamy.
They claim their ancestors came from Israel 600 BC. by boats “with holes in the top and bottom.”8 With a hole in the bottom, no wonder there is no historical or archaeological evidence of their arrival! They have a Polynesian CULTural center on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii, where they showcase life on south Pacific islands. Do not sell your soul to the devil through financial involvement with Mormonism.
Near Fort McLeod, Alberta, Canada, a tourist center, Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump, preserves history of native buffalo hunting before the time of horses and guns. Grass below steep cliffs blends perfectly with grass above the cliffs and appears as flat prairie. Thundering buffalo hoof-beats became silent and stampeding herds were dead meat as they fell over cliffs. Non Christian cults try to blend the Book of Mormon, Watchtower, and other counterfeits with the Bible to obscure their jump into hell.
They use Bible words but pour different meanings into them to blend with Christians on non-theological issues like pornography and abortion. Once your eyes are opened to their tricks you will be inoculated and able to give answers. While talking to cultists pray that God will open their minds and hearts to receive the truth and release the devil’s death grip. All in the cult kingdom is false: Jesus, gods, gospel, prophets, priesthoods, heavens, way of salvation, books and Bible perversions.
May 6, 2005: Mormons received some help from a witch in Abbotsford, BC. I stood on a street with a Jesus sign. Soon a young lady dressed in black grabbed my cross, broke it in several pieces, threw it into traffic and walked home. Later, on her driveway, she turned to me saying, “Satan lives here.” She continued in a state of rage ordering me off her property. As a last resort she threatened to turn two pit bulls loose to drive me away. I said, “Bring them on. Dogs are my friends.” She opened her high fence gate and roared, “Attack! Attack!” The dogs ran up to me and I petted one of them. I then extended my hand and said, “In Jesus Name.” She became quiet and walked down the street. Jesus can close mouths of lions, witches or dogs. All cultists are satanists for Satan is the author of their belief systems. “Resist the devil and he will run” (James 4:7).
FALSE MORMON GODS
IN GODS WE TRUST!
“Do you believe in God?” asked Christian.
“Yes, we certainly do,” affirmed the Mormon.
“Which God do you believe in?”
“He is an exalted man of flesh and bones!”
Compare this with Scripture. Moses said, “God is not a man that he should lie” (Numbers 23:19). Hosea said the same (11:9). Isaiah said one cannot become a God: “Before me there was no God formed neither shall there be after me” (43:10). There is only one true God; the job is taken. Paul referred to idols: “There are lords and gods many” (1 Cor. 8:1-5). He then said, “Unto us there is one God” (v.6). Spencer W. Kimball: “We are gods in embryo and the Lord demands perfection of us”8A
John 10:35 quotes Psalm 82:6,7: “You are gods...but shall die like men.” These mortal unjust Judges of Israel thought they were gods, enforcing harsh laws but Mormons use this text to try to prove their godhood. Smith dispensed more spiritual cyanide in 1844: “God was once as we are now and is an exalted man who sits enthroned in yonder heavens. If you were to see him today, you would see a man in form like yourselves in all the person, image and form of man.”9 “There are millions of gods and men may become gods.”9A They see gods in a mirror! All that contradicts the Bible is from a false god, Satan, for the true God does not contradict himself.
“In the beginning the head of the gods called a council of gods that came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it.”10 “Gods exist and we better strive to prepare to be one of them.”11 Mosiah 15 in the Book of Mormon affirms the trinity, three persons in one God, but Smith refuted it with his multiple god theory. He said, “He will make me to be a god to you, like it or lump it.”12 Brigham Young said, “The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those who enter into polygamy.”12A Mormon in Chinese means the devil’s gate. Mormo is the god of cemeteries, synonymous with spook or ghost.
HINCKLEY SPEAKS ON GODS
A Time Magazine reporter asked President Hinckley: “Is this the teaching of the church today that God the Father was once a man like us?”
He sounded uncertain: “I don’t know that we teach it; I don’t know that we emphasize it ... I understand the philosophical background behind it but I don’t know a lot about it and I don’t think others know a lot about it.” In the same article he said, “Yes, both men and women can become gods. They can’t conceive a king without a queen.”13 He publicly misrepresents Mormon teachings in an attempt to reinvent Mormonism and bring it out of the dark ages. Is the United States one nation under gods?
Amazing! He doesn’t know Smith’s theology! He should know because in 1997 the LDS Church printed a manual, Gospel Principles, for the purpose of teaching new LDS members and a guide to prepare lessons for church meetings and Family Home Evenings. In chapters 1-3 we learn: “God has a body that looks like ours. All humans are the literal sons and daughters of Deity and Jesus and Lucifer are brothers.” Chapter 47 speaks of Mormons exalted and becoming Gods.
TIME notes “a vacuum of theological talent since those at the top are not career clerics but hard-nosed business men.” With six billion annual income there is more emphasis on the pocket book, the wallet, than the Bible. The devil, puffed up with pride, was first to prophecy humans becoming gods (Genesis 3:5).
Smith repeated it: “You have to learn how to be gods yourselves the same as all gods before you to inherit the same power, glory and exaltation until you arrive at the station of a god.”14 This is an example of pouring their meaning into the word, God. Wolves in sheep’s clothing sound and look like sheep “but inwardly are ravening wolves” (Matt. 7:15).
Reorganized LDS do not believe in multiple gods, humans becoming gods, baptism for the dead and the other temple rituals but believe in the apostasy, meaning the true church became extinct 1800 years ago and they are the “restored church.” Joseph Smith was not a prophet of God but of gods. False prophets that cause people to follow other gods must die (Deut. 13 & 18). That happened to Smith in jail, 1844. Mormons are like whales that beach themselves after following disoriented leaders.
They speak of many gods but only one for this planet. Smith refuted that: “Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three distinct personages and three gods.”15 They believe those three are for this planet. God became man, Jesus, but in Mormonism man becomes God. They shave their gods every morning and both men and women traded God for a mirror. God created man in his image and man returned the favor. Satan fantasized about becoming God but failed: “I will be like the most High.” He was cast out of heaven because of this belief (Isaiah 14:12-15). The acid test to determine if a Mormon is a god or not is to ask his wife.
Brigham Young taught his Adam-god “revelation”: “God revealed to me and I reveal to you, Adam is our father and god and the only god with whom we have to do.”16 He said Adam brought Eve, one of his celestial wives, from heaven to Eden. These fantasy prone prophets of gods are hopelessly in conflict about who God is! If all gods are acceptable, where is idolatry? As Mormonism with its fictional non-existent gods expands beyond North America it blends perfectly with Hinduism and other belief systems with multiple gods and wives. Mormons say matter, not God, is eternal and God did not create the world out of nothing but organized matter that existed eternally. Here we see their god is not a creator but an organizer. The circus continues. The only thing lacking is Barnum & Baily music.
Latter Day Sinners that knock on your door claim to be gods in embryo exalting themselves to full godhood by their works and temple rites. To them, heavenly father is a literal, physical exalted human on the star base Kolob.17 This polygamous god has sex with multiple sealed human goddesses procreating spirit children that enter human bodies on earth. Polygamy produces maximum numbers of bodies for these spirits. Human, Satan’s and Jesus’ spirits were created in this way so according to their teaching on preexistence we are all brothers and Jesus is the brother of Satan. This incredible hodge-podge is from Greek mythology and suitable for Ripley’s Believe it Or Not.
In temple marriages, couples are sealed together for eternity and will continue to procreate and fill their own world. All other marriages are until death or divorce only.17A
God created humans male and female in his moral and spiritual image. In Alma 31:15; John 4:24; and Luke 24:39, it is clear God is Spirit with neither flesh nor bones. Humans are body, soul and spirit (1 Thess. 5:23). God’s image is his spirit in us not a physical body. Image means “just a shadow of the real thing.” Some of God’s characteristics were not passed to humans since no finite human is all powerful, all wise, all knowing, eternal and everywhere present. We are not duplicates but reflections of God, reflecting his love and mercy.
Scripture speaks figuratively of God’s arms, eyes, ears and hands. Psalm 91:4 mentions his wings and feathers but he is not a chicken. Jesus at the Father’s right hand refers to right hand of power since he doesn’t have hands. Jesus is “The Door” without literal wood and hinges (John 10:9). More figurative language says “God holds oceans in the hollow of his hand and measures the heavens with his hand span” (Isa. 40:12). It sounds like Mormon gods are mighty big men! God said, “I am God and not man” (Hosea 11:9). Paul and Barnabas looked like gods to pagans at Lystra but were told to turn from their vanities (Acts 14: 8-15).
Moses looked like another god to Pharaoh in Egypt who had many gods including the moon and Nile river. We, like animals, can procreate but cannot create things out of nothing. How can God be a man if neither Solomon’s temple nor the heavens can contain him? (1 Kings 8:27). Mormon President, Lorenzo Snow (1898), affirmed repackaged Hinduism: “As man is god once was and as god is man may become.”18 “God will not give his glory to another” (Isaiah 48:11). The Book of Mormon, on the page before the introduction says, “JESUS IS THE CHRIST THE ETERNAL GOD” so how can he be the brother of Satan?
FALSE MORMON ATONEMENT
Mormons, like New Agers, pour a different meaning into “atonement” and pronounce it “at-won-ment” to prove they can be at one with God. This is not possible for creator and creation are light years apart. It means sinners can be “reconciled” to God through blood of animals in the Old Testament that pointed forward to the blood of Christ. Jesus is the substance that fulfills symbols. The same Greek word translated “atonement” tells a separated woman to “reconcile” to her husband (Rom. 5:10,11; 1 Cor. 7:11).
Leviticus 16 refers to atonement by animal blood and a scapegoat. Sins were transferred to the goat that symbolically took them away. “Without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins” (Heb. 9:22). Mormons say Jesus accomplished atonement by sweating in the Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 22:44). This is salvation by perspiration not by shedding his blood and dying for our sins. Paul said, “I determined to know nothing among you but Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). We are reconciled to God by the blood of his cross (Col. 1:20). Mormons are “enemies of the cross” (Phil. 3:18,19). “We preach Christ crucified” (1 Cor. 1:23). Mormons bypassed the cross and missed salvation. The cross is God’s plus sign.
FALSE MORMON BOOKS
Moroni, a Book of Mormon writer, spoke of “imperfections in himself, in his Father, Mormon, and in the record” because they wrote “according to their own knowledge.”19 Notice, they say Angel Moroni had a father but angels do not have fathers since they do not procreate. God is our Father and we are his “adopted” not literal children as Mormons claim (Gal. 4:5). Another writer, Alma, gave his opinions.20 “Omni, a wicked man wrote upon the plates.”21 Nephi wrote according to his memory and made errors because of his weaknesses.22 How can they say it is the most accurate book ever written? Their four standard works are the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants and Pearl of Great Price. Reorganized LDS do not recognize the Book of Abraham and PGP.
Ezekiel spoke of the sticks of Joseph and Judah (37:16-19). Mormons say this refers to The Book of Mormon and the Bible, two Testaments of Jesus Christ. We cannot analyze a symphony by a single note so we must check the context. Verse 19 tells of gathering Israelites from among the heathen and verses 22-24 say they will no longer be two nations, Judah and Israel, but one with one King, David. The sticks refer to two nations not two books.
The Mormon article of faith #8 reads: “We believe the Bible to be the Word of God as far as it is translated correctly.” At this point they lost their moral and spiritual compass. All must harmonize with God’s oldest revelation, the Bible, which is fact based on manuscript and archaeological evidence, history and fulfilled prophecy. The only true prophecy in the Book of Mormon is Mosiah chapter 14 which is Isaiah 53 copied word for word including italics from the King James Bible. Joseph Smith allegedly copied this from gold plates one letter at a time with his head in a hat and an occultic sear stone. How could italics be on gold plates that were inscribed 2000 years earlier?
Digging for earth worms in Israel uncovers evidence the Bible is true. Gold plates, Book of Mormon manuscripts, that Smith allegedly dug from Hill Cummorah in New York State near his farm home were taken back by the angel Moroni after translation. A classic case of slight of hand and mind as the drivel continues. Be sure to tune up your balogna detector! Think of Sodom and Cummorah.
The Smithsonian Institute says there is no evidence for the Book of Mormon and native Americans originated in Asia not Israel. 1 Nephi 4:9 and Alma 18:9 tell of steel and horses but these were unknown in the Americas before Columbus, 1492. Three Book of Mormon witnesses: Martin Harris, Oliver Cowdery and David Whitmer all apostatized.23 Harris claimed he visited the moon.24
Mormons are divided about location of Book of Mormon lands, rivers and cities. BYU and others place them in central America but Smith speaking by “the power of god” placed them in continental United States, New York State and elsewhere.
A Mormon group: F.A.R.M.S., wrote: “However, proof of the Book of Mormon remains in the spiritual domain.”25 It has no maps and tells of the Land of Moron but no recorded history mentions it.26 The ostrich syndrome continues:
Mormons have no objective evidence for their beliefs so they verify things subjectively. Feelings ebb and flow but fact remains constant. They refer to Moroni 10:4 and ask people to pray for wisdom to decide if the Book of Mormon is true but wisdom has two sources, God and Satan (James 3:15,17). They speak of a gut feeling, “You will know it is true if you receive a burning in your bosom.” Pizza or hell fire in the tongue can give the same reaction (James 3:6). “The world did not know God by wisdom but by preaching Christ crucified” (1 Cor. 1:20-23).
Their motto is: FEEL, DON’T THINK! People develop altered states of consciousness when feelings replace facts. Prayer and burning bosoms are not tests for truth. Bereans searched Scripture to determine whether or not Paul spoke the truth (Acts 17:11). God does not contradict himself with conflicting messages. If you pray to the false Mormon god, Satan, I guarantee you will get a false answer. You know a sewer smells without praying about it. The Unification Church, Moonies, says to pray about their book, The Divine Principle, and a burning bosom will confirm it is true. They believe Jesus failed in his mission and their leader from Korea is the Messiah. He ended in jail for tax fraud so Rev. Moon is not the Son. He that has ears to hear let him hear.
“Detractors have dismissed Smith’s story as religious fantasy and the Book of Mormon as coarse fiction filled with clumsily reworked passages from the King James Bible.”27 The final Mormon authority is neither the Bible nor the Book of Mormon but their current President. Their present blind seer, Hinckley, was part of a group that bought forged documents from Salt Lake City bomber, Hoffman, in the 1980s. Where was the power of discernment? Hoffman is serving a life term in jail.
Mormons forged a Howard Hughes will several years ago. The Book of Mormon is a contrived document with over 4,000 changes since 1830 and over 27,000 words copied from the Bible. They changed their mind on the deity of Christ. The first edition calls Jesus, “God” (p.25). Now it reads, “The Virgin you see is the mother of the son of God.”28 The front cover of the Book of Mormon reads, “Another Testament of Jesus Christ.” The Bible warns of “another gospel” (2 Cor. 11:4; Galatians 1:8).
THE CURSE OF POLYGAMY
A & E Television, Feb.10, 2000 showed the plight of people involved in polygamy. Ex-wives said:
“Sex abuse is soul murder and the ultimate in immorality. Men are sperm banks who think of women as flowers; each petal represents one for his kingdom. We spend much time putting out fires of jealousy and have a punching bag in the basement to work off frustrations. The lifestyle is a haven for pedophiles and incestuous marriages cause genetic defects leaving whole communities with physical and mental problems. Polygamy is still enshrined in Mormon scripture and a man needs a minimum of three wives to enter the celestial kingdom.
Welfare fraud is out of control as girls claim they don’t know their children’s fathers. It is organized crime on many levels as a conspiracy of silence festers like cancer. Women are learning they have rights and are leaving heart-rending polygamous relationships like slaves leaving masters but they have no skills.” This is Family Home Evening by latter day sinners.
At the St. George temple’s Visitors’ Center the main religious tenets are spelled out including one that says women’s primary role on earth is to obey their husbands and look after the children. They cannot join the priesthood and their salvation is tied to that of their husbands. “Polygamy is illegal,” said a man with four wives, “but they don’t have enough jails to imprison half of Utah.” All this debauchery proves they are not saints. Homosexuals with their Adam and Steve teachings and polygamists destroy the biblical concept of families. Mormon presidents find euphoria in depravity as they preside over this demise. Doctrine and Covenants has 65,000 changes since 1835 and contradicts the Book of Mormon on polygamy.
“Hearken unto the word of the Lord for there shall not any man among you have more than one wife and concubines you shall have none. David and Solomon had many wives and concubines which was abominable says the Lord...whoredoms are an abomination” (Jacob 2:23-35 ; Mosiah 11:2). Sinful man does many things contrary to the will of God: Cain killed Abel, man made idols and multiplied wives.
1835, “Inasmuch as this church was reproached with the crime of fornication and polygamy, we declare that we believe one man should have one wife and one woman only one husband” (D&C 101:4).
In 1876 this was replaced by section 132 to allow many wives. Smith declared it a revelation from god to persuade his wife, Emma, to accept his other wives. “Behold I reveal unto you a new and everlasting covenant and if you abide not in that covenant [of polygamy] you are damned for no one can reject this covenant and enter into my glory” (v.4).
“I, the Lord, justified my servants David and Solomon having many wives and concubines” (D&C 132:1). Kings were commanded not to multiply wives (Deut. 17:17). David disobeyed and “the sword never departed from his house” (2 Samuel 12:10). The tragic consequences of polygamy and delusional men claiming to be Gods is seen in the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping and brainwashing in Salt Lake City. Imagine the confusion of a teenager trying to sort out the false religion of both her abductor and the Mormon church.
Mormonism has over 200 splinter groups most practicing polygamy and racism. Reorganized LDS with headquarters in Independence, Missouri, is disorganized believing the Book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith was a true prophet even when he gave false prophecies. They have 250,000 members and started ordaining women in 1984. This group does not practice polygamy, baptism for the dead or celestial marriage. Their President, W.G. McMurray, graduated from a Methodist seminary.
The Fundamental, FLDS, maintain they are the last remaining faithful, the only true Mormons. Like Joseph Smith they believe in polygamy and that non-whites are inferior. Smith said that only men with three wives will reach the highest realm of heaven. They closed heaven’s door to themselves by banning polygamy.
Trusting Mormon prophets is like following shooting stars not the north star. In 1891 the federal government threatened to exile them to Mexico and confiscate their property if they continued polygamy. They are between a rock and a hard place, damned if they do it and damned if they don’t. “If you are told by your leader to do a thing, do it, none of your business whether it is right or wrong.”28A
Dennis Simmons headed church operations in Africa. He said: “The church has already lost control over the process. In some villages in Mozambique, Malawi and Angola, small pockets of Mormons are practicing without services of any official LDS organization. Some church members warn that polygamy may come back to haunt the church as it expands in countries that have their own polygamist traditions.”29
Elbert Peck, editor of Sunstone, an independent Mormon Journal, said: “The problem will come as people find polygamy in our scriptures and ask, ‘Why not?’” Africa suffers from famine and an aids epidemic now this compounds their problems under the guise of Christianity.
Apostle, Orson Pratt: “If the doctrine of polygamy as revealed to Latter-day Saints is not true, I would not give a fig for all other revelations that came through Joseph Smith. I would renounce the whole of them because it is impossible according to revelations contained in these books to believe part of them to be divine, from god, and part of them to be from the devil. Oppose it in this way and teach your children to do the same and if you do not become as dark as midnight there is no truth in Mormonism.”30 Mormons ignore part of the word of wisdom that forbids eating meat except in winter, cold or famine.31 They eat hamburgers in the summer. Mormons are Satanists for Satan is the author of their entire belief system opposite of Christianity.
THE FALSE MORMON JESUS
“Do you believe in Jesus?” asked Christian.
“We certainly do,” replied the Mormon. “His name is on the front cover of our Book of Mormon.”
“Which Jesus do you believe in?”
“There is only one Jesus!”
“Paul warned of a different Jesus, a counterfeit in 2 Cor. 11:4. Your false Jesus is the spirit brother of Lucifer a created being with several wives and was not begotten by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is Satan’s creator not his brother. He created all things in heaven and earth” (John 1:3; Col. 1:16).
Brigham Young explained his “revelation” that Adam and God are one and the same person: “When the virgin Mary conceived the child Jesus, the Father had begotten him in his own likeness. He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. And who was the father? He was the first of the human family ”32
In brief: Adam was resurrected, had sex with Mary, and Jesus was born. Apostle, Orson Hyde, said: “Jesus was the bridegroom at the marriage in Cana of Galilee. If he was not please tell me who was.”33 Have you heard of a groom needing an invitation to his own wedding? They bring Jesus down to their level by claiming he was a polygamist with at least three wives.
Mormons say Jesus is a brother of Satan and so are we. Jesus is the God-man; Satan is a fallen angel and we are human, all different species so how can all be brothers? “The Mormon Jesus is Satan’s brother.”34 “Christian churches worship a different Jesus.”35 They took “Jesus” and attached a radically different meaning to the word, not the creator in human form but the brother of Satan. Jesus is Satan’s creator not his brother (John 1:3). The Book of Mormon, on the first page just before the introduction, says in large print “JESUS IS THE CHRIST THE ETERNAL GOD.” It contradicts their “Satan’s brother” theory.
God knows the future and knew us before we were born. Preexisting as aliens on star base planet Kolob, is mythology from imaginary worlds. We are not God’s natural children produced by celestial sex between human Mormon gods and goddesses on the planet Kolob but adopted children, born of the Spirit (John 3:1-16). When we receive Jesus as Savior from sin we are born again and adopted into God’s family (Galatians 4:5; Romans 8:15).
A broken clock is right twice every 24 hours but this non-prophet organization was not right once in 180 years. False prophesying is like shooting an arrow into a tree then painting a bull’s eye around it. With slight of mind they rearrange events to make vague predictions appear true. The same applies to 16th century French astrologer Nosterdamus, Jean Dixon and Word Faith false prophets. Jack Van Impe said rapture of the church to heaven would happen in 1992. They should read their tea leaves again as prediction addiction continues:
1832, Smith: The City of New Jerusalem and temple would be built in Independence, Missouri “in this generation.”36 They expected Christ, Satan’s brother, to return to that temple which is not built since Temple Lot Mormons own the land. Over time the Utah church purchased 14,465 acres there.
1832: As the federal government and South Carolina prepared for a tariff war, Smith predicted a war would break out between northern and southern states and it would be “poured out upon all nations.”37 The issue was diffused in 1833. Mormons dusted off the old prophecy 30 years later saying it referred to the civil war of 1860s. War was not poured out upon all nations. New false revelations supplant older false revelations.
1835, Smith: “Go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time or the coming of the Lord which was nigh even 56 years should wind up the scene.”38 Jesus did not return in 1891 as predicted. The Bible tells when Christ will return, when you least expect him, “like a thief in the night” (2 Peter 3:10). Are you ready if he comes tonight? False prophets lie about the past, present and future, about God and everything. Isaiah said, “No one can become a God” (43:10). Smith, the supreme idolater, lied when he prophesied about multiple gods and humans becoming gods.
Like Smith, Brigham Young believed people inhabit the sun and moon.39 “When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if it does not come to pass the Lord has not spoken” (Deut. 18:22). It is possible for a false prophet to show a sign to trick you to follow his false gods (Deut. 13:1-5). Mormons boast of a large membership and great wealth. The church of Laodicea was rich, increased with goods and in need of nothing. Jesus said, “You are miserable, poor, blind and naked” (Rev. 3:17). Christian holdings with two billion members dwarfs Mormonism.
“God spoke in past times by prophets but in these last days has spoken by his Son” [Jesus, not Joseph] (Heb. 1:1,2). The 12 Apostles and Old Testament prophets are the foundation of the church and their words are Scripture (Eph. 2:20). A foundation is laid once not in every century. When you erect a building, you lay one foundation. John the Baptist was the last prophet (Luke 16:16). Prophets today are preachers who foretell nothing but repeat what is already told. We need no crystal balls or other divination since the future to the end is told in Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13 and Revelation. Let every mouth stop for Jesus has the last word.
All that sell sensationalism by putting their spin on last days events fail 100% of the time. Buddha, Zoroaster, Confucius, Bahai, Muhammad, Ellen White, Charles Taze Russell, Joseph Smith, William Branham, Ken Copeland, Hagin, Arnold Murray, Ron Hubbard, Rev. Moon and other liars were not prophets of one true God for all contradicted Scripture and each other. They say their revelations come from God “making him a liar” (1 John 1:10).
Earliest Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist writings said nothing of their leaders walking on water, rising from the dead or ascending to heaven. Hearing of Jesus, some realized their saviors were inferior and added the same things to their writings. Jesus warned: “Many false prophets shall arise and deceive many” (Matt. 24:11).
Pompous Joseph Smith boasted: “I have more to boast of than any man ever had. I am the only man that kept a whole church together since Adam. A large majority of the whole has stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I.”40 Jesus had already kept the church together for 1840 years. Smith also said, “I am learned and know more than all the world put together.”40A He spoke of his failed prophecies: “Some revelations are from God; some are from man and some are from the devil.”
Exchange Joseph for Jesus and be transformed from a sinner to a saint. You have nothing to lose but your chains and darkness. Run, don’t walk to the nearest exit for hell has no exits. Jesus is The Way not one of many equally good ways. He alone is the sinless Lamb of God who loved us so much he went to Calvary to pay our death penalty for our sins. Pray: Jesus, I am a Latter Day Sinner. Forgive my sins as I accept you as Savior, Amen.
FALSE MORMON PRIESTHOODS
Mormons claim to have Aaronic and Melchisedec priesthoods which give “authority to act for the Lord and do his work on earth.”41
The priesthood was changed because perfection could not come by the Aaronic priesthood (Heb.7:11,12). Jesus is our High Priest who made us kings and priests (Heb. 6:20; Rev. 1:6). Mormons put a barrier in their temples, a veil between themselves and their gods. When Christ died on the cross the temple veil was torn from top to bottom signifying all have direct access to God (Matt. 27:51). The New Testament concept is the Royal Priesthood of all believers, men and women (1 Peter 2:9).
Jesus never transferred the Melchisedec priesthood to anyone for it is “intransmissible” (Heb. 7:24 Greek). Mormon priestcraft, like Pharaoh’s, is a fake since Jesus our High Priest has ALL authority in heaven and earth and gave us authority to preach the gospel and baptize (Matt. 28:18). Smith claimed to be of the tribe of Ephraim. That Egyptian lineage could not hold the priesthood.
THE FALSE MORMON GOSPEL
Five Mormon missionaries parked their bikes and sat in a restaurant in Langley, BC., Canada. I joined them and compared their beliefs with Christianity. They boasted of exclusive priesthood authority to preach the gospel and spoke of a post-resurrection visit by Jesus to America. He did not appear in Australia to save them or in America to save us and he did not contradict himself by presenting one gospel in Scripture and another on this continent. The Bible does not teach that Jesus will come three times, first to Bethlehem, second to America and third, to judge the world. It teaches only the first and second coming. He is not the author of confusion! Paul affirmed, “Though we or an angel from heaven [Moroni] preach any other gospel than we preached unto you let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8).
I asked, “If you took paint and brush could you improve the picture of Mona Lisa or would you mess it up?”
“I would likely mess it up,” replied the Elder.
“In all 66 Bible books from Genesis to Revelation we see a clear picture of God’s plan of salvation. This gospel is shown by the blood of the Old Testament Passover lamb in Exodus 12 then by the blood of our Passover, Jesus, in the New Testament (1 Cor. 5:7). Paul declared the gospel [good news] that saves: ‘Christ died for our sins and rose again’ (1 Cor. 15:1-4). He did not just sweat in Gethsemane but died as our substitute at Calvary. Will the Book of Mormon improve or mess it up?” They could not explain how extra biblical writings could improve the original gospel.
“What is the Gospel?” asked Wayne.
“It is the Sermon on the Mount,” replied the Mormon.
The following ordinances allegedly exalt Mormons to godhood: faith in Christ (Satan’s brother), repentance, baptism, laying on hands, church membership, sealing your family for eternity, tracing and doing proxy temple baptisms for dead relatives, tithing, temple marriage, social and missionary works, also obeying their word of wisdom that means abstaining from hot drinks such as coffee. True wisdom is to abstain from Mormonism.
There is no salvation with progression to godhood without acceptance of Joseph Smith Jr.42 The thief on the cross, a latter day sinner, went to heaven without Smith, good works or baptism. He called on Jesus not Joseph for forgiveness (Luke 23:42,43). Pray: Lord Jesus, forgive my sins; I receive you now, Amen.
Working out salvation that was not worked in is like working water out of a dry sponge. It must be worked in first. The Book of Mormon says: “For we know it is by grace we are saved after all we can do.”43 Salvation is a gift of God not of works (Eph. 2:8-10). Paul said, “Christ sent me not to baptize but to preach the gospel” (1 Cor. 1:17). In contrast, the Mormon gospel includes baptism.44 Baptized Mormons change from dry to wet latter day sinners.
Baptism is a work we do but the gift of eternal life is bought by Jesus and freely received. In the Bible people were baptized after conversion not to become Christians. Going under water is a testimony that our old lifestyle is dead and buried. Rising up depicts walking in newness of life. Baptism shows this is possible through the gospel: death, burial and resurrection of Christ (1 Cor. 15:1-4). Jesus paid for the gift at Calvary.
He that believes in Jesus but “does not work” is righteous (Romans 4:1-8). Works justify us before men but not before God. We are saved for good works not by good works. We are not saved by things we do but by what Jesus did for us at Calvary. We are not saved by our giving but by God’s gift: “God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
James E. Talmage said, “The sectarian dogma of justification by faith [in Christ] alone has exercised an influence for evil.”45 In Christianity, the way up is down. God exalted a tax collector after he humbled himself and prayed, “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:10-14). Go from mire to the choir.
Mormons redefined salvation: General salvation means resurrection for all but individual Mormon salvation also provides exaltation to godhood. They say Christ did not die for our sins but for our resurrection so all can be physically raised from the grave to enter one of three levels of heaven: telestial, terrestrial or celestial. They have to earn their way into their mythological Celestial Kingdom. Mormon men and heavenly mothers that are gods and goddesses occupy the highest Celestial level in polygamous relationships. Two hottest lower levels are for the general salvation group: Buddhists, Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Satanists etc. They spend eternity apart from God and are damned.46 Non-Mormons are “damned” in the Mormon heaven! It doesn’t sound very heavenly to me!
Bruce McConkie said: “Immortality is a free gift that comes without works or righteousness of any sort. All men will come forth in the resurrection because of the atoning sacrifice of Christ...immortality comes by grace alone. But these who gain it might find themselves damned in eternity.”46A The true gospel is “Christ died for our sins and rose again” (1 Cor. 15:1-4) but the false Mormon gospel is “Christ died for our resurrection.” “The natural came first then the spiritual” (1 Cor. 15:46).
A fiery hell is reserved for lapsed Mormons “sons of perdition” who betray the church and its teachings.47 Good works get you past Elohim and Joseph Smith to the Celestial level where women give birth to spirit children to populate other planets. My wife, Betty, said, “I want nothing to do with it if I have to be eternally pregnant.”
Stereotypical cultists have a false look of perfection like whitewashed sepulchers. Clothes have no wrinkles; shirts are bleached white with every hair in place but the God-shaped vacuum in their hearts remains empty. They remind me of lifeless artificial flowers that outwardly appear alive. One can be physically alive and spiritually dead (1 Tim. 5:6). Salvation is an inside job, a change of hearts of stone to flesh. Mormons who do not know if their gospel is true “bear testimony of what they hope is true.”48 Their missions department reported a “complacency factor” among their members.
They water down the gospel by celebrating the Lord’s supper with water not grape juice or non-alcoholic wine. “We are all unclean and our righteousness is as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6). We need the “breastplate of righteousness” a gift of God (Eph. 6:14; Rom. 5:17). When we repent our sins are credited to Jesus’ account and his perfect righteousness is credited to ours. A counterfeit of this is given to initiates in temple endowments. They receive “a holy priesthood garment” like long underwear with occultic Masonic markings they wear all their lives and after death for protection from the destroyer. It is like carrying a horse shoe.
In Christianity, after death comes judgment (Heb. 9:27). Mormons believe in a second chance by baptism for the dead. Cults in Paul’s day did not believe in resurrection but did the same thing (1 Cor. 15:29). Seeking the dead, necromancy, is an abomination (Deut. 18:11,12). Neckros in Greek means a dead body. Smith brought mummies and a copy of a pagan burial ceremony from Egypt but with his fertile imagination read his own meaning into it calling it The Book of Abraham.
Mythology says non-Mormons go to paradise at death. Mormon missionaries are there and some accept their lies but like the moon no water exists for baptism. Living Mormons are immersed on their behalf to achieve imaginary post-mortem salvation. These converts now proceed to become gods in the Celestial heaven and organize worlds of their own. A sixth generation ex-Mormon said: “I was baptized by immersion for about 20-30 dead people at a time.” Mormon genealogical records on microfilm that trace deceased ancestors for baptism are the equivalent of 7,000,000 books of 300 pages each.
What an exercise in futility! The Book of Mormon teaches there is no second chance.49 The Bible speaks of “repentance from dead works” (Hebrews 6:1). The practice of seeking the dead explains witchcraft in Mormonism (Deut. 18:11,12). Lying familiar spirits often appear to them masquerading as dead relatives. Occult symbols, five point stars called pentagrams, are visible on Mormon temples. Devil worshippers use these in satanic rituals. Their false performance based gospel lists things they must do to become gods. The Christian gospel is not “DO” but “DONE” and invites us to receive the free gift of salvation. Jesus spoke from the cross, “It is finished” (John 19:30). The Greek word is tetelestai. Merchants used it on bills of sale and means “Paid in Full.”
The gospel is a Down-To-Earth message of Jesus coming down to earth from heaven to die as our substitute for our sins and rise again to conquer death to assure our resurrection. Jesus did not die like other men since no one took his life from him. He laid it down and took it up by himself (John 10:18; 2:19-21).
Two Mormon missionaries on bicycles rolled up to McDonalds in Sardis, BC., Canada. After bearing his false testimony I asked, “Would you like to see the double-cross I held while preaching during conference at the Salt Lake City temple?”
Opening my car door I showed the double-cross and temple prayer Jesus spoke about in Luke 18:10-14. I held the Bible as Elder Dennis from Utah read how a tax collector was forgiven when he prayed, “God be merciful to me a sinner.” As he stared at the cross frozen in time, I asked, “Did you pray that same prayer from your heart to have your sins forgiven?”
He answered, “I was saying it but not praying it!”
He likely thought Joseph Smith could improve on God’s plan of salvation. Good gospel seed was planted and it will grow. There are two kinds of faith: Said Faith is lip service (James 2:14). Saving Faith trusts Christ alone for salvation without works, temples, prophets, baptism, Mary or purgatory. Salvation for Jew and gentile is Christ plus nothing. Jesus told Nicodemus, A Jewish ruler, to look to the cross (John 3:1-16).
Blood of the false Mormon Jesus, Satan’s brother, cannot cover sins so you shed your own blood. Capital punishment in Utah gives the option of human sacrifice by firing squad for one does not bleed if he is hung but bleeds if shot. They also speak of blood atonement, putting a sword through guilty people, to pay for their own sins.
There is a non-negotiable difference between the Mormon Jesus and the Jesus of orthodox Christianity. Christians believe Jesus atoned for our sins on the cross, taking the punishment we deserve and through his forgiveness we have salvation.
In contrast, the Mormon Jesus suffered for our sins by sweating great drops of blood in the Garden of Gethsemane giving us a personal salvation conditional on full obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Mormon gospel. He then died on Calvary so we could be resurrected to be judged for our obedience to those laws and ordinances but in Christianity Jesus nailed all the laws and ordinances to his cross (Col.2:14). Mormons that are most obedient will become gods and goddesses. Here we see that Mormonism draws people away from the cross to a false gospel of works and self righteousness.
Denial of original sin in Mormonism makes salvation unnecessary. With no sin, they feel their false Christ, Satan’s brother, is sufficient. In Christianity sin passed from Adam and Eve to all and Jesus came to save us. The TIME article notes:
“Absence of original sin allows Mormons to move guiltlessly forward.” They do not see themselves as sinners but as saints and gods in embryo believing Adam broke God’s command without sinning. The whole human race fell with Adam and became spiritually dead. Man did not fall upwards as Mormonism claims.50 “If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us but if we confess our sins he will forgive us” (1 John 1:8,9). Why do Mormons speak of repentance if they have no sin? It is a great contradiction in the cult.
Their conscience becomes “seared by a hot iron” (1 Tim. 4:2). If one repeatedly shuts off his alarm and goes back to sleep, soon he will not hear it. Be not discouraged for the Word of God is powerful and able to penetrate darkened souls, convict of sin and bring salvation. Never mind Rock & Roll; get Jesus in your soul! You can save the dollar but it can’t save you. Jesus saves from sin (Matt. 1:21). Download your sins on Jesus! He will highlight them and hit his delete button in heaven to delete all sinful files. God is high tech.
Simeon saw salvation (Luke 2:26-30). Whom or what did he see? He was about to die and saw salvation at his eleventh hour. Did he see a Protestant priest, saint, icon, vision, guru, Pope, Watchtower, Book of Mormon, Koran, golden rule, temple or some other counterfeit? Did he see a Masonic lambskin, dollar bill, the Buddha, Muhammad, a bottle of booze, Joseph Smith or some other false god? Did he see Mary the mother of Jesus who stood nearby? NO! He “saw salvation” when he looked at Jesus not Joseph. You can do the same! Run, don’t walk to the nearest exit for there are no exits in hell where you are headed. Look past all religious decoys, stained glass and tradition and focus on the real Jesus. You cannot find right answers by looking in wrong places. Why burn rubber in the fast lane while going the wrong way? Jesus referred to himself: “I am the Way, Truth and Life” (John 14:6).
The death rate is still one per person. We all have sinned and the penalty for sin is death, conscious, eternal separation from God. If I was guilty and sentenced to hang but some innocent person loved me so much he hung in my place as my substitute I could go free. Jesus had no sin but paid our death penalty for our sins on the cross. Be transformed from a Latter Day Sinner to a saint by exchanging Joseph for Jesus, the only true Prophet, Seer and Revelator of these last days (Heb.1:1-2). Turn from the Mormon mirage to the reality of Christianity. Receive Jesus’ pardon and gift of eternal life. Pray: Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I turn from my sins and false religion and accept you as my Savior and forgiver, Amen.
