We are warned not to give heed to anyone that preaches another gospel. Even if it has Jesus on its label, know that we ought to compare their teachings with the Bible before joining them. No matter how good it seems to be on the surface, stay far away from anything that is contrary to God’s Word, the Bible. As Paul said, 2“if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” These people are dangerous, even if they may not know what they are doing is wrong. This is because there false teachings are leading people astray in droves. Even salvation is lost because of this. So please note that anything that may even appear to be for Jesus, we should always be ready to search the scriptures to see if those doctrines are of God or man. Paul continues and said that, 4“all are to perish” if they are walking 4“after the commandments and doctrines of men.” They may think they are living a good life for God but in reality, their desires are not for Him at all. And because they have either added or allowed new teachings and doctrines to be added into their church, God is not thrilled with them at all and therefore when they die, they will be in danger of judgement and hell fire. There are also false brethren in our midst of our Christian church, who are also there with ideas that are not Biblical in nature. These people are also not for God but against Him in their theology. In this, Paul said that there were 3“false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage.” This is when things get confusing if people are hearing them out and agreeing, instead of comparing what they say with their daily Bible reading and prayers to God.
Please know that God is not a God of confusion. That is why He spoke to men throughout the Bible and taught them the right way to live their lives and to obey the Lord God. 1His Words are a lamp unto our feet and will lead us safely to Jesus daily and to heaven, as we abide by them each day of our lives. However, this cannot happen when we allow other books and even TV shows, movies and video games to creep into our lives. We must watch out what we are consuming on a day to day basis. Speaking of daily readings, anything contrary to God should be put down. Books can truly make people think differently then what God’s Word speaks. That is why we ought to always do our homework on any other book that we read. We do not want to be found perverting what the Lord says because of what another book says and not what God’s Word, the Bible teaches. For this reason, my go to book is always the Bible. Those words are written on my heart and mind, as I read them daily. And because I do this, I am not easily persuaded to believe in something that is an addition to the Bible. This is because what people share with me is always tested with the Bible, that I might know if it is a good or evil teaching. The same thing can be said with other books that some religions make out to be scripture, like the Book of Mormon. This book may seem good on the outside but very deceitful on the inside. It does not help people come to God but muddies up the waters on God’s holy doctrines. This book and other books in the Mormon faith are pure evil. Many false teachings have come into their church because of their books that they hold up as scripture above the Bible. I pray that you will see the danger of this and if you are a Mormon, and that you will leave this cult as soon as possible.
My heart is saddened by the millions of people that have been led astray by the Mormon church. As I was once a part of that religion and have now been led safely out of it, I am now able to see the deception that people are under. Just think of what they hold dear to their hearts, which is eternal marriage, temples, baptisms for the dead, their prophets, the Book of Mormon and their other books. The Bible is clear that in heaven, we are not given into marriage. It is also clear that since Jesus was crucified and that the veil in the temple was torn in half, everyone can now have access to God’s presence. God no longer dwells in temples made with hands, since we are the temple of God. On the topic of baptisms for the dead, Paul was simply asking the people that did this, why they did such things. Speaking of prophets, their primary mission on earth ended with John. And lastly, the Book of Mormon and their other books have either additions or contrary teachings to the Bible. Their name may have Jesus in it, but He has absolutely nothing to do with the work going on in that false religion. To these people that are deceived, I say to them the same thing that Paul said of the false teachers in His day. He said, 2“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Think on these things and start following Jesus, through reading the Bible, that you may not be led astray. And if you are Mormon, I invite you to resign from the church today.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that every Mormon will one day have an understanding of the deception that they are under. This I pray that they may leave what it false behind and repent and come unto You. Truly, their prophets have led millions of people astray and they are on a path to destruction because of this. These teachings are truly leading them to believe in the doctrines of men and not Your doctrines, Lord. Satan has used people to muddy up Your words, that they may not understand the real truth. Because their prophets now say and teach things that the Bible is either quiet on or is contrary to, these people easily accept it without thinking. This is the problem Lord. We have a generation of men, women and children who are relying on men to lead them and not You and Your Words. Because they have not allowed Your Words to be a lamp unto their feet, they have allowed this darkness to come into their lives. They have even put a vail over their faces and become hard hearted to Your messengers, because of what they are taught. This has really been a great hindrance to the evangelists that only wish to lead them unto You, Lord. So I pray that people in that church will have an awakening of the Spirit. Help them understand what it means to be a follower of You. Give them desires to search Your scriptures and only take heed to what the Bible teaches above all else. And when they discover that their teachings are wrong, convict them of their sins, that they may repent and leave the church behind. This I pray that they will leave it and go all in for You, Jesus. You are the only way to salvation. No church can replace You. I love You and trust in You above all things. Amen.

2Galatians 1:6-12 (KJV)
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye 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 yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
3Galatians 2:1-9 (KJV)
1 Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.
2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:
7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)
9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.
4Colossians 2:16-23 (KJV)
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
