Everyone who knows about Christianity is aware of the fact that the Mormon Church is a cult. First of all, they do not go by the Bible as their prime source of truth and law, but by The Book of Mormon. Why would you need another source that radically departs from The Bible in many of its doctrins if you were a Christian? Not to mention what The Bible says about later day prophets (saints?) - you got to judge them based on The Bible and not The Book of Mormon...

More ignorance. Their primary book is the King James Bible. I learned more from the bible being Mormon - - then I ever did in traditional Christian church.

They had me memorizing 4 to 5 bible verses every week.

The Book of Mormon is like "in addition to" the bible. We hardly ever used the Book of Mormon.

But that's not the point.

The point is the story of Jesus is about as far out as you can get. To criticize another way of believing as unbelievable is ludicrous.

I would concede that their TEACHINGS may, in fact, be "very Christian." However, the fact that Jesus in Mormon teaching is not "true God and true man" but rather a created being negates any Mormon from truly professing to be a Christian.


Dude - - YOUR guy was born of a virgin impregnated by God.

How insane and stupid that one myth decries another wrong.


These debates are many things; insane and/or stupid are not on that list. Back to the question posed by my reference - Jesus, true God and true man? Yes or no?


There is NO one true God.

Oh Yes indeed it is insane and stupid to pit one unprovable myth against another.

Each myth stands only by faith in that belief. Not by any tangible reality.

Its like saying Santa Claus is real - - but the Easter Bunny is not.

Since Mormons believe that God lives on another planet, with Jesus, will that effect his views on space exploration?


That's an interesting question.

But comparing a Catholic Bishop and a Mormon Bishop - - - well that's quite a stretch.

Any religion that tries to tell people outside of there church how to live is a cult and i do not believe they have any rights to dictate to me in any way. IE Religious harassment.



Mormons are not suppose to tell anyone anything.

They are allowed to ask if you are interested in hearing. If you say No. They are supposed to politely leave it at that.

Please, everyone reading this....stop and say a prayer from the heart,
asking God to bring about a miracle, for a Godly man to lead this country.

God can make a miracle happen if we pray and fast.


blessings,

I guess you could categorize them and say "they all help their community and have excellent family values" but there are lots of people who are that way and aren't Mormon.


Mormons volunteering and helping in the community is a very intricate part of their belief. Its almost the core of their belief.

But you rarely hear about Mormon volunteers in the media. You hear about Catholic Charities - - Red Cross - - Salvation Army.

Mormons work right along side these groups. But because in their faith - - it is god's will - - they do not seek recognition or publicity.

After one of the huge hurricanes down south - - Mormon's organized heavy equipment brought in to chop fallen trees for firewood to donate to residents. You never heard about this - - did you?

So you need to be a mormon to have the "drive" to learn bible verse? You need to tithe for this? You guys don't use the book of mormon because it's such bull**** that even the mormons themselves stopped believing it long ago. dont even get me started on the "there is no one true god" thing.

1. Deuteronomy 4:35,39 — Unto thee it was shown, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. (39) Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

2. Deuteronomy 6:4 — Hear, O Israel: The LORD thy God is one LORD. [Note in Mark 12:28-34 how Jesus and a Jewish scribe he encountered understood this text.]

3. Deuteronomy32:39 — See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

4. 2 Samuel 7:22 — Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God; for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

5. 1 Kings 8:60 — That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.

6. 2 KINGS 5:15 — And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel; now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant.

7. 2 Kings 19:15 — And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
8. 1 Chronicles 17:20 — O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

9. Nehemiah 9:6 — Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou has made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

10. Psalm 18:31 — For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?

11. Psalm 86:10 — For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

12. Isaiah 37:16,20 — O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou has made heaven and earth. (20) Now therefore, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD, even thou only.

13. Isaiah43:10,11 — 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. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.

14. Isaiah44:6,8 — Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Fear ye not, neither be afraid; have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

15. Isaiah 45:21 — Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time: who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Savior; there is none beside me.

16. Isaiah 46:9 — For I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.

And the second is like, namely this, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

21. John 17:3 — And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

22. Romans 3:30 — Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

23. 1 Corinthians 8:4-6 — As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

24. Galatians 3:20 — Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

25. Ephesians 4:6 — One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Mormon is a Cult???

I read the Book of Mormon once...Funniest thing I ever read, I thought Monty Python wrote it??

Of course my Religion is much better......Universeology.

We are all descended from the Betas, who mated with the Zetas and begot Alfas, Bravos and Charlies.

Charlie Sheen is our Demi God...

We only allow virgin women between the ages of 18 and 25 to join us...for purity you know.

We use men as gardeners, janitors that type of thing.

Our Warp-dimensional Quantum-shift craft are buried in the Ocean depths...but we cant swim, so we cant show you.

We are a close religion, so we initiate our virgins personally... You know they like the special treatment from the Elders.

So if there are any prospects out there that want to join our Universeology, just pay us $25,000, we will induct you too and make all your dreams come true. To Divinity and Beyond.....when we retrieve our craft.

Can you provide a reference showing LDS doesn't deny that Jesus is God? I would truly be interested in seeing that from an LDS source or one that cites them directly.


Yeah, it's on their homepage. mormon.org...

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the official name of the religion commonly called the Mormon Church. We believe first and foremost that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God.

Apparently not since Mormons are Christians and they are well aware of the fact they are not a cult.
