Christians versus Mormons


Please read the passage carefully and note all the pejorative words and ways they demean without fair reportage. Do some research and study hard or you will continue to be made more of a sheep for the paradigm. Ask yourself what role the Masons had in all of this on both sides of the issue including the Mormons, Hitler and other real mind control cults like Scientology.

THE MORMONS:

The good Christian oversight of Mormons is quite 'loving' they think. I often laugh as I see the interdenominational fighting and squabbling of all these cults seeking sheep and maintaining their current hold or demographic constituency.

"Who is the One Mormons Call Elohim? By Bill McKeever

For centuries Christians have professed their belief in a God who is God alone (Is. 44:8), self-existent (Is. 43:10; 48:12), transcendent (Num. 23:19; Ps. 50:21), immutable (Ps. 102:27; Is. 46:10; Mal. 3:6), eternal (Ps. 90:2; 93:2), omnipresent (1 Kings 8:27; Prov. 15:3; Is. 66:1; Jer. 23: 23, 24), and incorporeal (John 4:24; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17). He is also a God who dwells in the believer (Eph. 3:17; 4:6; Rom. 8:9) and is omnipotent (Job 42:2; Ps. 115:3; Matt. 19:26). Mormons insist that their God, the one they call Elohim, is the Christian God. Why then are his attributes so different from the God who is declared in the Bible? {Is the alien God EL in the Bible? Yes. Is it a myth made by colonizing forces called Anunnaki? Yes. Are there many Christian Mystery Schools like the Dragons of Rosicrucianity in books like Genesis of the Grail Kings saying they are descended from these aliens? Yes. Is this author taking pieces of the Bible and not addressing the Mormon explanation? Yes. Is this fair? NO!}

THE GOD OF MORMONISM IS ONE OF MANY GODS {The Holy Trinity and the heavenly host of Saints angels and the rest is the largest Pantheon of gods or demi-gods ever constructed.}

Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, stated, 'I wish to declare I have always and in all congregations when I have preached on the subject of the Deity, it has been the plurality of Gods' (History of the Church 6:474).

Brigham Young, the second prophet and president of the LDS Church, said, 'How many Gods there are, I do not know. But there never was a time when there were not Gods...' (Journal of Discourses 7:333).

THE GOD OF MORMONISM IS NOT SELF-EXISTENT

Mormon Apostle Orson Pratt taught, 'We were begotten by our Father in Heaven; the person of our Father in Heaven was begotten on a previous heavenly world by His Father; and again, He was begotten by a still more ancient Father, and so one, from one generation to generation' (The Seer, pg. 132).

THE GOD OF MORMONISM IS NOT TRANSCENDENT

While the God of the Bible makes it clear that He is not like man, {Adept beyond man yes, but that does not mean man does not have the qualities of the Biblical God when in his body of light. And to state that the Bible makes it clear that God is not like man is false. God therein made man in his image and this is ego or what is called anthropomorphing.} Mormon leaders have insisted that their God is an exalted human being.

Joseph Smith declared, 'God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens!' (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg. 345).

Mormon Apostle John Widtsoe stated, 'God and man are of the same race, differing only in their degrees of advancement' (Gospel Through the Ages, pg. 107). {Very much a proper or valid interpretation of Biblical myths.}

This concurs with Mormon Apostle Parley P. Pratt's comment which states, 'God, angels, and men are all of the same species, one race, one great family...' (Key to the Science of Theology, 1978 ed., pg. 21).

THE GOD OF MORMONISM IS NOT IMMUTABLE

Whereas God's perfection makes it never necessary for Him to change, the God of Mormonism changes both in his physical person and moral attributes. This is demonstrated by the fact that he evolved from a man into a God and that he has changed decrees which are theoretically "unalterable." Examples of this would include the abandonment of polygamy in 1890, the reversal of the ban which withheld the LDS Priesthood from Blacks in 1978, and the changes in the LDS temple ceremony in 1980. {Reasoning and change is necessary if God's purpose or Divine Providence is to continue.}

THE GOD OF MORMONISM IS NOT ETERNALLY GOD

Joseph Smith taught that God was not always God when he stated, 'We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see' (Teachings, pg. 345)." (3)

Both Brigham Young and Joseph Smith were high Masons and Joseph Smith has many similarities with Blavatsky.
