Welcome to our site.
We cordially invite our visitors to attend a course in Mormon
history. Many Mormons have no idea what they really believe because
Mormonism has many facets and is not taught to Mormons as one
might expect. They do not know the true foundation of
the Mormon Empire. Mormons are under the impression that they
are the most dedicated Christians and truly the only true
church of Jesus Christ, because they are told that they have
privileged information which is not accessible to outsiders,
not even most Mormons. Mormons are so trusting in their leaders
that they will tell you that they shut their thinking off and
follow their Mormon leaders without scrutiny. We hope for the
sake of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and salvation which He offers
to all human beings, that visitors will have the courage
to carefully follow the links and study the Mormon documents
presented here for the purpose of bringing light to delusion.
The site is for Christians who may be contemplating on becoming
Mormons and for Mormons who may want to investigate their church.
This site was constructed and equipped by those who have been
made to "see" the truth so they can tell their brothers
and sisters in Christ what they discovered.
- We joined for several
reasons. 1) We were told that the Mormon church is the only church
which bears the name of Jesus Christ, the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints. 2) An opportunity to serve the Lord personally.
3) Family home evening which meant spending quality time with
our children. 4) We were told that we could become perfect. I
believed then that humans could become perfect. 5) Mormons
had the reputation of puritans which appealed to us. 6) We had
searched for years for the perfect church and thought
we had found it. 7) When I asked if they take sinners like myself
they said that the water baptism required to gain membership
would make me perfect.
What was our problem?
1) We had been "saved" by altar calls in meetings of
"evangelists" like Rex Humbardt, Kathryn Kuhlman, Oral
Roberts, Billy Graham, Robert Schuller, Kenneth Copeland, Bob
George, and many other radio and television personalities and
were floating without a church to go to on Sundays. 2) We were
scripturally illiterate which was our biggest problem. 3) We
did not expect "Christians" to lie to us: knowingly
or unknowingly. We realize that people can bend the truth unawares.
It took twenty two
years to get to the truth. Like the wallpaper on this website,
the maze of Mormonism goes deep. The image below is a representation
of Joseph Smith, Jr, the founder of Mormonism and the angel Moroni.
There are a number of versions of the first vision.
The Book of Mormon
contains a book named Moroni. Moroni is the son of Mormon. Mormon
is the name used for the Mormon Bible which is supposed to be
the best Scriptures ever written. One could parallel this
Moroni in the Book of Mormon, to the Son of God whose name is
also the Word of God. In the book of Moroni it is written that
the book came by the power of the Holy Spirit. To believe that
is to deny the Word of God which is the only truth.
"And I saw
heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon
him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth
judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on
his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no
man knew, but He Himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped
in blood: and His name is called THE WORD OF GOD." (Revelation
If the Book of Mormon
were part of this Israeli Jesus, it seems to us God would have
told us so and not lied to us. Revelation which is still the
same book, continues to emphasize that we can rely on
Jesus who represents the Word of God only by giving us
"For I testify
unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this
book (Word of God), If any man shall add unto these things, God
shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of
this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of
life, and out of the holy city and from the things which are
written in this book." (Revelation 22:18-19)
The Golden Plates
were never seen by anyone but Joseph Smith jr. who founded the
church. Supposed witnesses only saw them with their mind's eyes,
also called the eye of faith, in other words in a vision, not
with their physical eyes. Oliver Cowdery later joined the Methodist
Protestant Church of Tiffin, Ohio and stated that he "..was
sorry and ashamed of his connection with Mormonism," (True
Origin of the Book of Mormon (1914) pp. 58-59)
Joseph Smith stated
that he gave the golden plates back to an angel when he completed
his translation. Researchers found that that much gold would
have weighed in the neighborhood of 100 to 200 pounds.
The hieroglyphics were supposedly to be reformed Egyptian which
Close to 4000 changes
to the Book of Mormon have been documented. There is no archaeological
evidence that the characters or the cities mentioned in the Book
of Mormon ever existed.
Even though LDS
Apostle Pratt said: "who knows that even one verse of the
Bible has escaped pollution, the Book of Mormon contains 27,000
words out of the King James Version written in 1611. The Book
of Mormon was supposed to have been written by ancient prophets
who gave an account of people in 600 B.C.. They were supposedly
tribes from Jerusalem which implies that Indians are Israelis.
This has been scientifically disproven only a few years ago.
Indians have a mongoloid spot which Israelites do not have. Bible
cities are verifiable, but the Book of Mormon cities are not
verifiable. The book is internally inconsistent.
Some scholars believe
that parts of the Bible were copied since Isaiah chapter 2 -
14 is written verbatim in the Book of Mormon.
- The Book of Mormon
describes the trinity as Christians believe which does not agree
with other Mormon doctrine. Mormons do not believe in the trinity.
Their gods are three separate gods. Two have physical bodies.
Mormons believe that they existed in the spirit world before
they came to earth and chose Jesus, one of their spirit brothers,
there. To become a god, Mormons have to have a physical body
which is their purpose for living on earth. God was once a man
in Mormon theology.
