Cult Alert: Research of Mormonism:
They believe there are many gods and believe there is not salvation unless one accepts Joseph Smith as a prophet of God. They believe God used to be a man living on another planet, believe after one becomes a Mormon they can become a god, believe there is a mother goddess and believe God is married to a mother goddess. They believe forgiveness is only through believing in the tenements of the Mormon faith instead of through Jesus Christ.
Joseph Smith was a Freemason and so were his brothers. Freemasonry is an evil cult in itself.
The book of Mormon is unreliable and they say it is originally written in ‘Reformed Egyptian’ language which is a language that never existed. Tribes that Mormonism claims to exist in the ancient Americas they call the Lamanites and Nephites never existed and there is no evidence that crops they claimed these tribes grew ever existed in the ancient Americas.
For nearly 150 years the Mormons taught racism against blacks up to June 8 1978. Supposedly a revelation was received then from God in an upper room allowing blacks in.
Joseph Smith said people lived on the moon and lived to be 1000 years old and were six feet tall and dressed like Quakers and it was his responsibility to preach the gospel to them.
Brigham Young, the second President of the church, claimed there was life on the sun.
Polygamy was practiced for 40 years by Joseph Smith who married even teenagers and insisted that women divorce their husbands so that he could marry them. Some Mormons today claim that polygamy is still alive and practice it.
They believe that Joseph Smith will judge people in final judgment and decide who gets to go into the ‘celestial kingdom’ of God. Those who frequent the temple wear Temple garment underwear they believe having ‘magical powers’ and are required to wear it day and night at all times giving them ‘spiritual and physical security’ and symbolizing ‘spiritual purity.
They practice spirituism believing they receive messages from the dead, communicate with the dead, pray for the dead, have baptisms for the dead and believe the dead can even be assisted and saved in the next life.
Deut. 18:10-12 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.
Finally, we pray for their repentance, that they would stop believing in false gods and would choose perfectly for Jesus. We want them to believe in the One true God and the true Christ and the true gospel.
But, unfortunately, Mormonism has deceived millions of people and it is most definitely not Christian. Mormonism is a non-Christian cult. Beware–do not have anything to do with being a part of this cult.
Much of this information is gleaned from “Nine facts the Mormon church does not want you to know.”
