6.40 Mormonism Masquerading as Christianity

You are in Beware the Wolves -> List of False Teachings

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also referred to as “LDS” or “Mormons,” contains foundational beliefs which deny the deity of Christ. This puts the Mormons squarely in opposition with Holy Scripture. A partial list of their false teachings includes: [1] [2]

  1. Baptism for the dead (vicarious baptism),
  2. Jesus is an angel, the brother of Satan (but not God, so this denies the deity of Christ),
  3. We can all become “Gods” ourselves,
  4. False prophets and prophecy with “special revelations” from God,
  5. False books added to the Holy Bible,
  6. That they are the “lost tribe” of Israel,
  7. God is not eternal,
  8. They deny the virgin birth of Jesus Christ,
  9. Jesus was a polygamist,
  10. Among others.

It is written:

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! – Galatians 1:6-9

To any who find themselves in this church, I pray that you will seek the truth of Scripture, and God’s truth, for yourself.
