In this generation there are many people that are deceived and following another gospel outside the Bible. The Mormon Church has added three other books to the Bible. One of them, they call another testament of Jesus Christ, the “Book of Mormon”. According to the church and the faithful, this book is the most correct book on earth. They read it more often than the Bible. Many doctrines have been created in their church that are non-Biblical. They teach that our sins were not paid on the cross, that we need to baptize for the dead, that man can become a God, that Jesus and Satan are brothers and many more lies. The beloved truths of the bible have been perverted. These lies are deceiving the hearts of many people. Many people of this church may not realize it but they are preaching another gospel. Paul counseled that we should not give heed to even an angel of heaven that preaches another gospel. He said this twice because of its importance. A lie from Satan is that another book can be lifted up above the Bible. Stay strong in the Word of God lest you be deceived.
The Mormon church was founded because an angel of heaven preached another gospel to Joseph Smith. Instead of forbidding the angel from speaking the message, Joseph received it. He listened to the instructions of the angel and wrote the books of the Mormon church. Because Joseph stated the importance of the Book of Mormon, the faithful now lift it up above the Bible. They even give praise to Joseph Smith in one of their hymns, “Praise to the Man”. How can anyone truly praise man when God deserves all our praise and honor? Paul said that we should not seek to please man but God. I was once part of this faith but through the grace of God I left. God had put it on my heart to search for the truth. What I found was that when I read the Bible I was convicted of the truth. The Lord has confirmed to me that the Bible is the Word of God. There is no other book that can come beside it or above it. It is alive in me. It is breathed from God himself and I am holding to it. If you are part of this faith, I ask that you seek to know the truth for yourself. Let the Lord guide your paths. Take heed to His counsel.
6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
