How interesting that Mormons don’t even believe their prize and gem Book of Mormon. It is clear from this book that there is only one God, but still, there are teachings in this church that there are multiple Gods. See for yourself the contradiction in their own doctrines. Certainly, they must hate these verses in Alma, chapter 11. They read, “And Zeezrom said unto him: Thou sayest there is a true and living God? And Amulek said: Yea, there is a true and living God. Now Zeezrom said: Is there more than one God? And he answered, No. Now Zeezrom said unto him again: How knowest thou these things? And he said: An angel hath made them known unto me.” (Alma 11:26-31) Therefore, this book teaches there is only one God. This collides with what Joseph Smith taught here, “You have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves; to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done; by going from a small degree to another, from grace to grace, from exaltation to exaltation, until you are able to sit in glory as doth those who sit enthroned in everlasting power.” (Discourse, 7 April 1844, as Reported by Times and Seasons) What was that we just heard from the mouth of the Mormon’s first and most beloved prophet, Joseph Smith? Wow, did he just contradict what he wrote in the Book of Mormon? Yes, he sure did.
Isn’t it interesting that the moment that Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon with his friends, they believed in one God, and Him alone? However, this changed as he started his church, which we would call a cult. Here is the truth, my friends, there is only one God and the Bible teaches this. As Christians, we actually teach from the Bible, whereas Mormons do not teach from their own Book of Mormon. God’s Word says, “ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” (Isaiah 43:10) “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” (James 2:19,20) Therefore, if Mormons ever tell you that they can be exalted to Godhood, then explain that it can’t be so according to their book of Mormon in Alma, chapter 11, and all throughout the Bible also. For example, in Isaiah, chapter 43, and James, chapter 2. This is important when talking to cult members. They are lost but will never see this until we step out in faith and share the truth of God with them. This will take courage, but with God, there is boldness, as well as words to speak. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, help me and others in the faith to be an even better witness to the Mormons. Not only do I live in a state where Mormonism is prevalent, but LDS missionaries message me often. I once thought that this was a wonderful thing, for these lost people are so hard to get the truth across. There are many opportunities to share the gospel with them, although it is difficult. God, I did not realize how hard-headed and blinded these people really are. What they want to do is share their false teachings with us, but the moment we tell them what the Bible says they close up inside and the conversation goes south. Therefore, help us have more fruitful opportunities with these cult members. If the people I have been conversing with will never hear the truth of God, then let me know so that I can move on and talk to other Mormons who are searching for truth. I am asking that You put people on my path who are ready to hear the gospel. Those who want to know Your truth and know it by way of Your messenger on earth. I love to speak Your truth to different crowds, but especially love to do one-on-one conversations. Wherever You will lead me, I will go. Open my mouth and I will speak. I am Your willing servant. Lead me this day and forever. I will do what You say. I love You, Lord. I give You praise and all the glory. You deserve it. Amen.
