Is Mormonism Christian?

The Mormon Connection....

The articles featured in this section are all written from a Christian perspective and explain the differences between Mormonism and orthodox Christianity.

Check out the "Mormon" links on our "Links" page for more information from other ministries specializing on Mormonism.

We believe each person involved with, or examining a religious group should have all the facts and know the history of the group you may be involved with. Always remember...............

If you embrace an organized religion without knowing it's history, a stranger is claiming your faith.

Questions and Answers ...

Is Mormonism Christian? 

This tract and questionnaire is designed both to inform both Mormons and non- Mormons about the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, better known as the Mormon Church. As you compare your answers to the questions with the answers that follow please bear in mind this question.


Questions: True or False:

1. Mormonism teaches that there is more than one God.

True or False?

True. This is an direct conflict with what God Himself says on this subject in the Bible (Isaiah 44:6 and 8, 45:5, 6, 18, 21, 22). This also mysteriously contradicts the Book of Mormon (Alma 11:22, 26-31, and 35). Who is right: God, or the president of the Mormon Church?


2. Mormonism teaches that Jesus Christ is the spirit-brother of Lucifer.

True or False?

True. See Journal of Discourses, Volume 13, page 282. This doctrine goes hand-in-hand with the teaching that Christ is a created being and not eternal God, the Creator (John 1:3, 10; Nehemiah 9:6) This, too, contradicts the Book of Mormon (Helaman 14:12, Mosiah 3: 8 and 5:15).


3. Mormonism teaches that Jesus Christ was born after sexual intercourse between God the Father and Mary (thereby denying the virgin birth)

True or False?

True. See Journal of discourses, Volume 4, page 218, for an example. Many Mormons are unfamiliar with this doctrine of their church, but this is nonetheless a cardinal teaching. This contradicts both the Bible (Matthew 1:23) and the Book of Mormon (Alma 7:10). Beginning to see a pattern?


4. Mormonism teaches that God the Father has a body of flesh and bones.

True or False?

True. See Doctrine and Covenants, Section 130. The Bible, as usual, disagrees with both Joseph Smith and the Mormon Church (John 4:24, Luke 24:39, Jeremiah 23:24).


5. Mormonism teaches that God the Father was once a man.

True or False?

True. Joseph Smith, prophet and founder of the Mormon Church, taught this in the "King Follett Discourse," his last major address, and the Mormon Church teaches it to this very day (Journal of Discourses, Volume 6, page 5 and 6). This is a violent contradiction with not only the bible, but with the Book of Mormon as well ( Moroni 8:18, Mormon 9:9).


 

6. Mormonism teaches that we can become gods, and rule over our own planets.

True or False?

True. This is what the Mormon temples are for (see reference cited in answer 5 above; see also Doctrine and Covenants, section 132 in order to understand the direct connection between Mormon godhead and the practice of polygamy in the LDS Church prior to 1890.)

 


7. Mormonism taught for half - century that Adam is our Father and our God.

True or False?

True. See Journal of discourses, Volume 1, pages 50 to 51: Volume 4, page 1; and Volume 5, page 331, for examples. Whether Mormons deny it or not is immaterial; that it was taught is historical fact.


 

8. Mormonism teaches that Jesus Christ was a polygamist.

True or False?

True. See Journal of Discourses, Volume 4, page 259.

 


9. Mormonism teaches that Negroes have dark skin because they are cursed by God, and are an inferior race.

True or False?

True. See Journal of Discourses, Volume 7, page 290. (see also Mormon Doctrine, 10th printing, pages 526-527, in which the general inferiority of the Negro is explained.

This basic doctrine has not been changed---the only difference between the Negroes situation in Mormonism now and prior to June 9th 1978, is that he is entitled to certain privileges which were formerly withheld.)


10. Mormonism teaches that one "should not strive for a special and personal relationship with Christ."

True or False?

True. See "Church News" , Mar. 20, 1982, page 5. This statement was made at a Brigham Young University Devotional March 2, 1982 by Mormon Apostle Bruce R. McConkie. McConkie also made an attack on those who stress a personal relationship with Christ on Nov. 18, 1981 according to Seventh East Press. Such teaching is out of harmony with the Bible. Matt. 11:28, Rev:3:20, Phil. 3:8:10, as well as the Book of Mormon: III Nephi 11:16, 17; 19:18)


11. Mormonism has admitted that they worship a different Jesus and have a concept of the Godhead foreign to Historic Christianity. 

True or False?

True. Elder Bernard P. Brockbank of the first Quorum of Seventy stated..."It is true that many of the Christian churches worship a different Jesus Christ than is worshiped by the Mormons of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." ...These two concepts of the trinity and their attributes are completely different." May 1977 Ensign Magazine page 26. In light of Corinthians 11:3-4 we urge Latter-day Saints to come to the REAL JESUS.


Dear friend, As Christians, our purpose for delivering this article is, because we are commanded by Jesus to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" Mark 16:15.

The Biblical view of the gospel is that Jesus came, was crucified buried, and rose on the third day, being victorious over sin and death. 1 Cor. 15: 1-5.

1. The Bible first gives us a warning:

It tells us that all have sinned and will be judged. Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Hebrews 9:27 says "It is appointed unto man once to die but after this, the judgment."

 

2. The Bible gives us secondly our invitation:

2 Peter 3:9 says "God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. In Mark 2:17 Jesus says "I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." We are invited to come to Jesus Christ for salvation.

 

3. The Bible thirdly gives us a way:

John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world (you and me) that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." When Jesus died on the cross He paid our penalty of sin in full, "For the wages of sin is death." Romans 6:23. Jesus said "He that lives and believes in me shall never die." John 11: 25 - 26. The gift of salvation cannot be worked for or earned but freely accepted in faith. Eph. 2:8 - 9.

 

To become a Christian you must:

(1) Believe God's Word the Bible.

(2) Repent of your sin: to be sorry for your sin, turn from your sinful life, and obey God's Word for your life.

(3) Place your faith in Jesus, and trust Him for forgiveness of sin believing that they will no longer be held against you. By making Jesus LORD of your life, you willingly OBEY Him and become his SERVANT.
