BibleFacts Mormon Errors On Cults


In 1820 a 15 year old boy named Joseph Smith said that the angel Moroni (other versions say God or three angels) appeared to him and told him all churches were wrong, their professors were corrupt, and all their creeds were an abomination. So in 1830 he Founded The Mormon cult. He said the true Gospel had not been preached for 1800 years, and Mormonism is the only true church. Joseph Smith was assassinated in Carthage Illinois in 1844.

The teachings of the cult are as follows:
A race of gods, {advanced humanoids from a planet orbiting the mysterious star Kolab} who were once only men but through adherence to Mormon teachings became gods, called a council and decided that Jesus would be the God and savior of planet Earth. Lucifer, spirit brother of Jesus 1, wanting to be God and savior of Earth, lead a rebellion and lost. The followers of Lucifer became demons and therefore denied bodies of flesh and blood for all eternity. Those who remained neutral in the rebellion were cursed to be born with black skin 2. Those who followed Jesus were born with white skin.
This explains the Mormon doctrine of the Pre-existence of souls.
And the doctrine that God the father has a body of flesh and blood 3
God the Father is also called Michael the archangel 4

The Father, Adam God 5, came from Kolab to earth with one of his wives, Eve, to populate the planet, and of course that means there was no fall.
Joseph Smith and Brigham Young both taught originally that Polygamy was good. The scripture says its sin, and so does the book of Mormon, Jacob 2:22
Later the Father, Adam God, came back to earth and had sex with the virgin Mary 6 to give Jesus a physical body {this denys the virgin birth and conception by Holy Spirit 7}

Jesus married Mary, Martha, and Mary Magdalene and had children 8, through whom Joseph Smith is supposed to be a direct descendant.
Salvation is exaltation to Godhood. The goal is for the Mormon male to become a God and with one or more Goddesses Populate whole new worlds. Goddesses will be eternally pregnant.

Jesus died to pay for our sin nature, but his blood does nothing to cover our individual sins 9.
You must pay for your own sins with your own blood.
Salvation is accomplished by works, baptism, and temple marriage. Without a temple marriage a woman can never become a goddess. Therefore the woman must be totally obedient to her husband or he may choose not to resurrect her.

If you die and go to hell a Mormon descendant of yours can be baptized in your place. Eventually no one will be in hell. This is why the Mormon cult is the best place to go for genealogical research, their religion depends on it.

Using alcohol, tobacco, tea, coffee, coke, or Pepsi or not tithing can result in being removed from the cult and thereby loosing Godhood.

Satan originated the “you can become Gods” lie in Genesis 3:5.
Galatians 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! (NRSV)

The fact that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young taught these and other occultic doctrines is well documented. The current LDS and RLDS may not hold to all of these teachings. (For instance most Mormon groups no longer hold to the Adam is God doctrine) But why continue to belong to a group that still holds to the name of such false prophets.
