Okay, so you are defending bad deductive logic? But trust truth. --Item 2: "The Gods" of Mormon religion are compelling reason, and sufficient, for rejecting it. --Item 3: The lionized and revered Joseph Smith (1805-1846) dominates Mormon religion. ---------- "Pastors' Perspective!" - - A support ministry of Immanuel Bible Church S. "not founded on the Christian religion"Passed to protect U. Centuries of opposition followed, culminating in A. For the Divine apostle says, if anyone is preaching to you a Gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed (Galatians 19).9 You might imagine that such a belief system as Protestantism, which has as its cardinal doctrine that Scripture alone is authoritative in matters of faith, would first seek to prove that this cardinal doctrine met its own criteria.

Mormons today believe God the Father is married and past leaders have taught both God the Father and Jesus Christ are polygamists. To obtain the highest degree of the celestial heaven, the Mormon must be deemedworthy and perform his temple rites called the endowments or temple marriage. It has nothing to do with Adventist teaching. Until you have shown this to a Mormon, it is useless to point out that some Mormon doctrines differ from the Bible.

But some Buddhist monks can be expelled from their orders and monasteries if they break their vows — abstaining from sex, stealing, committing murder and lying about their spiritual powers. In the light of their beliefs they were acting rationally, but they did not secure Voltaire's approval. 'These charitable persons,' he said, 'omitted to consider that most fathers and mothers are sufficiently worldly to prefer having their sons and daughters with them than to see them slaughtered as a passport to Paradise.'" - A.

The Church does indeed verbally encourage members to question. I'm teaching Sunbeams - SIXTEEN of them!! Both Catholics and Eastern Orthodox hold that their own organizations faithfully represent the One Holy catholic and Apostolic Church to the exclusion of the other. From 10% in 1993, the figure declined steadily to 6% in 2001, a change greater than the margin of error, and a change verified by data from other sources.

Two young Buddhist monks are seen in Bagan, Myanmar (Burma). Smith was actually tried in 1826 on a charge of moneydigging. Did you notice that under the anti-Mormon view of salvation, all Latter-day Saints burn in Hell forever with no hope of pardon? A man dies without ever having the opportunity of hearing the gospel of Christ. The first half of the twentieth century saw the end of any distinctive idea of a Protestant death, and an increasing silence (except in some fundamentalist circles) about the afterlife issues that had dominated earlier religious discourse.

For not as common bread and common drink do we receive these; but in like manner as Jesus Christ our Savior, having been made flesh by the Word of God, had both flesh and blood for our salvation, so likewise have we been taught that the food which is blessed by the prayer of His word, and from which our blood and flesh by transmutation are nourished, is the flesh and blood of that Jesus who was made flesh. They accept very literally the 20th chapter in the Book of Revelation and on this assumption they teach that in the 1000 years in the Kingdom of Christ only the righteous will be resurrected.

It does not mean we believe that most of the doctrines in Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, or Protestant Christianity are false.” (461) [emphasis added] Forgive me, but this statement strikes me as misleading in the extreme. Roman Catholics speak of seven Sacraments while Lutherans tend to speak of only two (or three). For the Christ of whom I speak has been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fulness of Times.

Essential teachings are those doctrines that define a given religion’s basic essence. The Book of Mormon doesn't provide any unique doctrines (though it does of course include unique stories). The God of the Bible is the Creator and God of all the universe, of all worlds, not just our planet. Peo­ples needs to be taken to school—and I am just the one to do that—and shown that there really are 33,000 denom­i­na­tions; or what­ever the num­ber has esca­lated to today—possibly 51,314 as of this writ­ing. (For there is a for­mula to cal­cu­late these things.) I regret to say that is not going to hap­pen here.

This ritual is essentially a "contract" between the Mormon "god" and his adherents, by which they promise to obey his laws and earthly leadership, and he in turn promises to advance them to "godhood" upon their resurrection. Unfortunately, they mixed together a variety of new religious groups, dangerous life threatening cults and small established faith groups. Jeffress has done… “When I am asked the question, ‘Is Mormonism a cult?,’ I generally respond by saying there are three elements that everyone must be clearly aware of when it comes to Mormonism.
