1.Christian belief of the word God
We use the word God, we
mean the Creator of the universe, the one who manifest Himself to Moses on
Mount Sinai, the God of Israel. 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, Isaiah 46:9KJV
Mormon belief of the word God
The god that they follow
and serve is one of countless gods. Who began as a mortal man on another planet,
became god through learning and obedience he was given this planet to rule,
is Elohim. Mormons believe that they too can become a god like him and be given
their own planet to rule over.
2.Christian belief of the Gospel
The gospel is Christ died
for our sins and rose again three days later according to the scriptures. The
word gospel means “good news”. A preacher of the gospel preaches the gospel
with the law of God to show what sin is, so we see a need of the Saviour. The
gospel is Christ died for our sins and defeated sin and death.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that
we might be justified by faith Galatians 3:24KJV
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
Mormon belief of the gospel
Latter-day Saints beliefs is from five main sources:
1.The book of Mormon, Joseph Smith said is “the most
correct of any book on earth”.
2.The Doctrine and Covenants (mostly theology)
3.The Pearl of Great Price
4. The King James Bible, “insofar as it translated
correctly” for the average Mormon this means that the Bible cannot be trusted,
which is why Joseph Smith began his own ”inspired” translation.
5.The Mormon president, considered to be the final
authority and voice of God on earth today- like a Mormon pope.
For the Mormons gospel is
merely just following the teachings of the Mormon church.
3.Christian belief of Heaven
Heaven is the dwelling
place of God. Born again Bible believing Christians will be in the presence of
God forever. When we speak of heaven or our hope of eternity, the Bible says we
will receive a new heavenly body like Jesus had when He rose from the dead.
Bodies that are not subject to disease, decay and death.
And I heard a
great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,
and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself
shall be with them, and be their God Revelation 21:3 KJV
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto
his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue
all things unto himself Philippians 3:21KJV
Mormon belief of heaven
Mormons believe that, after the final judgement,
almost everyone will go to some form of heaven. For the Mormons, heaven is
divided into 3 kingdoms. Celestial, Terrestrial and Telestial. The Celestial is
only for faithful Mormons who meet all the requirements will enter this highest
kingdom, Terrestrial is for those refuse to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ
but who live honourable lives, most Mormons will also end up here. Telestial is
for everyone else who is wicked and ungodly.
4.Christian belief of Hell
Hell is eternal
damnation. A place where people are treated given their just punishment,
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 are cast into the lake of fire and get
their eternal punishment in hell.
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing
and gnashing of teeth Matthew 13:50 KJV
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast
into the lake of fire Revelation 20:14-15 KJV
Mormon belief of Hell
Mormons believe in hell
and for them there are two types of hell. One is a state of pain, guilt,
and anguish where the spirits of the wicked will be after they die but before
the final judgment (a state of spirit prison).
The other is an everlasting state of hell reserved for a few truly
wicked (outer darkness) they taught that its only for the “sons of perdition” the
devil and his angels, and a few apostate Mormons.
Mormon belief of Jesus
Mormons believe God came
to this planet he brought his goddess wives, and they began producing spirit
children who grew and matured in the spirit realm. Jesus was the first of their
spirit children to be born in heaven, followed by Lucifer and the rest of us.
He is the spirit brother of Satan and He is not eternal God. Mormons deny the
Trinity and believe that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are
three separate gods. Therefore, instead of teaching that Jesus is our immortal
God who became a man, the LDS church teaches that Jesus is a mortal man who
became a god and showed that all men can do the same. That certainly isn’t the
Jesus of the Bible.
5.Christian belief of Jesus
Jesus is our Lord and
Saviour, God manifest in the flesh. God became a human being. He created
Himself a body prepared for many. The Bible says, Jesus is the express image of
the invisible God. The reason God became a human being was to save us from our
sins through His precious blood that was shed on the cross of Calvary, through
the death, burial and resurrection. Jesus conquered sin and death to reconcile
us unto Him.
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
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath
translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption
through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Colossians 1:13,14 KJV
Again, the Bible is clear
that forgiveness of sins does not depend on our own efforts, but only on what
Christ has accomplished for us on the cross. Eternal life is freely available
to all who do what the Scriptures command.
Repent from sin, believe
and trust in Jesus Christ alone to be saved. Read the Holy Bible (The
Instruction book for life itself) and ask God to help us obey what we read.
With Blessing in Christ,
David & Gay
