1. Christian belief of the Word of God
We use the word God, Mormons use the word God. When we say God, we mean the Creator of the universe, the one who manifest Himself to Moses on Mount Sinai, the God of Israel as He calls Himself. There is only one Creator. There are lots of gods with small g, handmade gods, gods that are made up in the minds of people, but there is only one Creator, the one in whom dwells eternal life God Almighty. There’s always only been one God and always will be one God.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
Mormons belief of the word God
The god that they follow and serve is one of countless gods. Who became a god himself from another world, who is Elohim, he created this world and he became god by following the law and ordinances of his god. They become gods by following their god and how far does that go back.
2. Christian belief of the Gospel
We use the word gospel. Gospel is Christ died for our sins and rose again 3 days later according to the scriptures. The word gospel means “good news”. As preachers of the gospel we preach the gospel with the law of God to show what sin is, so we see a need of the Saviour. The gospel good news is Christ died for our sins and defeated death.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1 Corinthians 15:3-4(KJV)
Mormon belief of the gospel
For the Mormons gospel is merely just following the law and ordinances of the Mormon church.
3.Christian belief of Heaven
Heaven is the dwelling place of God. God’s kingdom is coming to earth and God’s will be done on this earth. Heaven is coming to this earth and the meek will inherit the earth. When we speak of heaven or our hope of eternity the Bible says we will receive bodies like Jesus had when He rose from the dead. Bodies that are not subject to disease, decay and death.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Mormons belief of heaven
For the Mormons, heaven is divided into 3 kingdoms. Celestial, Terrestrial and Telestial. The Celestial is for the perfect Mormons, Terrestrial is moral people or lukewarm Mormons and the Telestial is for everyone else.
4.Christian belief of Hell
Hell is eternal damnation. A place where people are treated given their just desserts, exactly what they deserve according to the perfect righteousness of God. Outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. Everybody who’s name was not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life gets their just desserts in that place called hell.
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Mormons belief of Hell
Mormon believe that hell is the temporary spirit world between death and resurrection. It is kind of a waiting place for those who are entering the telestial kingdom and hell is a temporal place by their belief.
5.Christian belief of Jesus
Who is Jesus according to us? According to the scripture Jesus is God manifest in the flesh. God became a human being. He created Himself a body, a body He prepared for many. He filled that body as a hand fills a glove. The Bible says, Jesus is the express image of the invisible God. The reason God became a human being was because God being a Spirit cannot die. You have to have a body to die and Jesus had to suffer and die and past through death and defeated death.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Mormons belief of Jesus
Jesus is Celestial offspring of God the Father. He is the spirit brother of Satan and He is not eternal God, He is just a god small g.
With Blessing in Christ,
