All in Mormonism not Christian
Joseph Smith, the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is revered and respected by the faithful LDS as the greatest prophet to have ever lived and he is viewed in an almost godlike status and is given more respect and adoration than any human should be given and more than any human could ever earn.
Cults, large or small, control their follower's lives with Christian sounding doctrine that is heresy and not Chrisianity. Here are some warning signs or indicators that a religion is a cult.
Some of my experiences from my 2 year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and how my perspective has changed since then on the Church and on life.
With the internet it is easy to find things people have said, which causes some embarrasment for the LDS Church when people see some of the things Brigham Young said, and they try to say that he was speaking his own opinion and not that of the Church, but official LDS Doctrine does not allow that as the D&C says that no prophet will ever be allowed to lead the Church astray.
This is the concluding episode of the series on errors in The Book of Mormon and covers the major issues from the book of 4th Nephi to the end of The Book of Mormon in the book of Moroni.
Joseph Smith claimed that The Book of Mormon was the most correct book on earth, so I have been examining that claim. Any true claim will stand up against investigation, however, The Book of Mormon does not. This segment in the series covers the errors in Helaman through Third Nephi
This installment of errors in The Book of Mormon covers the errors and problems found in the second half of the book of Amla
This episode continues with the series investigation the claims that The Book of Mormon is the “most correct book on earth.” This segment covers the errors in the book of Alma in chapters 1-25.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormonism) has an obsession with personal worthiness, a standard that no one can obtain, so as a result everyone always feels guilty for not reaching the standard and judges everyone else for not reaching the standard as well.
This episode is an interview with Caleb Alexander and his journey both into and out of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Caleb started doubting the Church when his son decided not to serve a mission for the Church.
In this installment of the examination of the errors in The Book of Mormon covers the book of Jarom through the end of Mosiah. A lot of the passages in this section of The Book of Mormon disagrees with LDS theology, which means the Church does not truly follow “The most correct book on earth.”
In LDS culture a mission served is said to be the best two years of a man’s life and is expected to strenghthen his testimony of the Church and keep him active within the Church for the rest of his life. This is the story of my mission and the role it played in ultimately leaving the Church.
Lee and Kathy Baker are former members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints (Mormon Church) and are the hosts of the Mainstream Mormonism radio program an are part of the 4Witness Ministry.
Lee was a faithful member of the LDS Church for 32 years, and was even a bishop, before he was excommunicated for asking questions about the Church and Kathy resigned from the Church when Lee was excommunicated.
The Book of Mormon is claimed to be the most correct book on earth and the keystone of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. There are multitudes of problems withe the Book of Mormon, not the least of which is the fact that much of the later official doctrine of the church contradicts much of The Book of Mormon’s doctrine.
This is the 2nd part of the series on problems with The Book of Mormon, the supposed most correct book on earth, and this episode covers the problems with the second book in The Book of Mormon which is the book of 2nd Nephi.
The Book of Mormon clams to be the most correct book on earth and the LDS Church admits that if it is not true than their church is a lie. This episode examines some of the multitudes of errors in the supposed most correct book on earth. Covers the title page through the end of 1st Nephi.
The entire structure of the LDS Church depends on their claim that the Church that Jesus founded when he was alive fell into complete apostasy after the death of the apostles and that it had to be restored by Joseph Smith. The problem with that claim is that Jesus said the gates of hell would never prevail against his church, so that means that it did not fall away. Another problem is that the LDS Church claims to be a restoration of the original church that Jesus Christ founded, yet it looks nothing like what the Bible teaches of Jesus’ church.
The LDS Church (Mormons) teach that Jesus and the devil are literal brothers, and that all humans are also the literal siblings of Jesus, born through spiritual intercourse by a heavenly father in a natural mother, born just as our bodies were born on earth through parents through natural means. Mormons don’t believe God can create matter, that he used to be a man, and that he is the same species as the devil and sinful humans, just better. This is not Christianity. True Christianity is that Jesus is God and was always God and was not created, nor are humans the same as God and never will be. God is good and we are not.
The LDS or Mormon Church carefully controls what members of the Church learn about the Church and tells them that getting a good feeling or burning in the bosom is more important than any evidence. Members are also encouraged to ignore any history of the Church that does not faith promoting. For many, many reasons, the LDS Church is NOT a Christian organization.
Though a lot of members of the church either don't know the doctrine or deny that the church believes it, the LDS Church has as doctrine that God was not always God and had to work out his salvation as a man and eventually became a god and that through obedience to the rules faithful Mormons can become gods.
