The Christian church is set up to be deceived.
Matthew 24:24 states, “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders; in so much that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” I speak about the Mormon Church and their teaching that the “Heavenly Father” and “Jesus Christ” that they worship is the same Hebrew God (Jaweh) that I worship. A comparison of the Mormon and Christian “scriptures” plainly displays the difference.
The “Christian scriptures” I refer to are the “Holy Bible.” The “Mormon Scriptures” are more extensive and includes the “Holy Bible” as translated by Joseph Smith, “The Book of Mormon,” “The Pearl of Great Price” and “The Doctrines and Covenants.” Together, these four books are considered by Mormons to be the “complete” and “authoritative” word of God. We hear a lot about “The book of Mormon,” but not so much about the other two. From these texts, I make my conjuncture.
What does Jesus say about his father? In John 4:23, Jesus states: “God is spirit.” What does Jesus say about spirit? In Luke 24:39b, Jesus says, “For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” Now, let’s look at what the Mormon scriptures say about God, the Heavenly Father.
According to “The Doctrines and Covenants,” (D and C) 130:20a, “The father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s, the son also, but the Holy Ghost has a personage of spirit.” Therefore, this conclusion follows: The God that the Mormons worship does have a body of flesh and bones. The Hebrew God that I worship has a father that is spirit. The Jesus that the Mormons worship has a father who has a body of flesh and bones.
From these statements, the natural deduction comes. How can the Mormon God and the Hebrew God be the same? How can the Mormon Jesus and my Jesus be the same? The truth is, they are not. However, mainline Christians are ready to agree that we (Christians and Mormons), do worship the same God.
Now that you have been shown the truth, it is between you and God what you do with it.
