The Truth about Mormonism


Scripture: Ephesians 5 v 6 - 12: "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 
7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are yelight in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret."

Jude v 16 - 19: "These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
17  But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18  How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19  These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit."

In recent times the leaders of the Mormon church also known as the Church of the Latter Day Saints or LDS for short, have sought to be known as pure Christians. They have sought to sanitise their image from cult status to "acceptable Christian brethren".

This is a move fostered by the New Agers who are seeking to amalgamate all religious groups/churches into the One World Church.   This is being done through the Interfaith movement and organisations like Chrislam.  This is what God calls strange fire upon His altar, it does not turn out well for them.

The founder of LDS was Joseph Smith, who was once a Freemason, but was blackballed by them (expelled) for being found to be a thief and a liar. He was sent to prison where he was murdered. Before all this occurred he convinced many people that he had been visited by the angel Moroni who had led him to the buried golden scrolls on which Mormon truth is based.

The golden scrolls disappeared after he had written down this powerful truth. The final outcome was the Book of Mormon, and other writings, which contain some Freemasonry, some twisted passages from the Bible, plus the belief that Mormon men should have multiple wives to prepare for their afterlife. This is that once they die they become a god on their own planet where they take their multiple wives to populate and rule that planet.

The Mormon Church has its headquarters in Utah, USA, and they rule with an iron fist. It is one of the fastest growing cults in the USA, which has spread all over the world, and they are exceedingly wealthy. They own huge corporations such as Coca Cola. For years no Mormon was allowed to drink stimulating beverages like Coke, tea, or coffee, but since they acquired the Coca Cola company these rules have been relaxed.

There are many masonic rituals in the secret beliefs and practices they engage in. They also have the same secret handshakes as Masons do to indicate what level of authority they have obtained. There is no resemblance to Christianity in this cult and no hope of eternity with Jesus Christ. In fact Mormons believe that Lucifer and Jesus were brothers and that Jesus lost the battle for heaven and was consigned to Earth leaving Lucifer victorious! 

There is no salvation in LDS doctrine just the promise of a lie about being a god on another planet. Their outward image is beauty and cleanliness but these are truly wolves in sheep's clothing.

There are many warnings in the Bible like 2 John v 7 - 11:  "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8  Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 
9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."

A breakaway from the Mormons is Seventh Day Adventists known as SDA.  They are strong on the Jewish Law and the Second Coming of Jesus.  They have abandoned most Mormon teachings and read The Bible which is a vast improvement but they are very religious rather than spiritual, not a good fit.

All we can do is share the truth about Jesus and all He had to say about the Devil, Heaven and Hell and warn the followers of LDS that they have been deceived and need to be rescued from a cult that will lead to their eternal destruction. 

Recommended Reading: The Godmakers and The Godmakers II by Bob Decker, an ex Mormon who is born again, he exposes the whole background and inner workings of LDS.  None of these people will have their names in the Lamb's Book of Life unless we share the truth with them.

There are so many cults, sects and false doctrines even in the churches that it is vital that we check and try the spirits of the Leader or Pastor to be sure he is not deceived.  We cannot be too careful because our faith in God can be compromised by falseness.  Our eternal destination could be at risk. No matter how sincere we are, we can be sincerely wrong.

Remember John 14 v 6 - Jesus says "I am the way, the truth and the life; no-one comes to the Father except through Me." 

We need to know the way ie through the Cross and Blood of Jesus; the truth - Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of Almighty God; the life - there is a strait and narrow path that leads to life and few there be that find it.

Prayer: Heavenly Father In these last days before Jesus returns the enemy will throw every imaginable deception in the way of people to defeat the promises of God. I pray that Your people will not perish through lack of knowledge but will know the truth and the truth shall set them free. In Jesus' name. Amen.
