3. Are Jesus, Satan, and all mankind spirit brothers?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have always believed that Jesus is the unique Son of God, the only human being who came down from heaven to become a man (John 3:31; 13:3; 16:28; 17:5). As God, Jesus Christ made everything, including all spiritual powers such as the angels as well as Satan, who rebelled against Him (Psalm 148:2-5; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16). Human beings start to exist at the beginning of their physical lives (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7; Job 38:4-7).

By contrast, the LDS Church teaches that Jesus Christ, humans, angels, and fallen spirits including Satan are all eternal beings that were never created and that are all spirit brothers and sisters. In particular, Christ and Lucifer (Satan) were two spirit brothers; Christ supported Heavenly Father’s plan while Lucifer did not (Doctrine and Covenants 93:21-33; Gospel Principles [2009], 9-10; Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph F. Smith [1998], 355; “I Have a Question,” Ensign, June 1986).

4. Was Jesus literally the physical offspring of Mary and God the Father?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have always believed that the eternal Son of God, Jesus Christ, became a man by being conceived in the womb of the virgin Mary by the supernatural creative agency of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 1:34-35).

By contrast, the LDS Church teaches that Jesus Christ is “the Only Begotten Son of the Father in the flesh,” meaning that He was the literal “offspring” of the Father and Mary,“sired” by Heavenly Father as his only son in the flesh, so that he had two literal, physical parents—his immortal Father and his mortal mother Mary. The LDS Church denies that Jesus was “begotten” by the Holy Ghost, since it understands “begotten” literally to mean sired by a physical father (Ensign, April 1997; Ezra Taft Benson, in Ensign, Dec. 2001; Gospel Principles [2009], 53; Ensign, Dec. 2010, 8).

5. Was the fall of Adam and Eve a great blessing?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that the disobedience of our first parents Adam and Eve was a great evil. Through their fall, sin entered the world, bringing all human beings under condemnation and death. Thus we are born with a sinful nature, and will be judged for the sins we commit as individuals.(Ezekiel 18:1-20; Romans 5:12-21).

By contrast, the LDS Church teaches that Adam’s sin was “a necessary step in the plan of life and a great blessing to all of us”(Book of Mormon—2 Nephi 2:14-26; Book of Moses 5:10-12; Preparing for Exaltation: Teacher’s Manual [1998], 13-14; Gospel Principles [2009], 29).

6. Can we make ourselves worthy of God’s forgiveness?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life in God’s presence is a free gift of God on the basis of Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross (John 3:16; Romans 3:21-26; 5:6-11; 6:23; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Titus 3:4-7; Hebrews 10:12, 19; 1 John 1:9). We cannot earn or be worthy of God’s forgiveness, but must receive this gift by acknowledging our helpless, sinful state and trusting solely in Christ (Luke 24:47; John 11:25-26; Acts 2:38; 16:31; Romans 10:9-13). Those who trust in God’s grace in Christ alone for their salvation will show their faith by their good works, but those works in no sense save them (Romans 6:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-10; James 2:14-26).

By contrast, Mormonism teaches that a person must become worthy in order to obtain forgiveness of sins and eternal life in the presence of God the Father through obedience to all the commands of the LDS Church, including exclusive Mormon temple rituals. Good works and ritual ordinances are requirements for this full, individual salvation, and Christ’s atonement makes up what is lacking in a Mormon’s best efforts (Book of Mormon—2 Nephi 25:23; Articles of Faith 3; Gospel Principles [2009], 62-65, 109-112, 277-78).

7. Does the atonement assure immortality for those who reject Christ?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that Christ’s atoning death on the cross provides the complete solution for humankind’s sin problem, but that those who reject God’s grace in this life will have no part in this salvation but are under God’s judgment for eternity (John 3:18, 36; Hebrews 9:27; 10:26-27; 1 John 5:11-12).

By contrast, Mormonism teaches that the atonement assures resurrection and immortality to all people, including those who reject Christ in this life. While only faithful Mormons and those who accept the Mormon gospel in the afterlife can live in God the Father’s presence, practically everyone else will be given immortality in a heavenly kingdom of lesser glory, even those who rejected Christ in this life (Doctrine & Covenants 76; 88:16-33; Gospel Principles, 61-62, 242-44, 271-73).

8. Are there scriptures more reliable than the Bible?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that the Scriptures that preserve the words of the ancient prophets and apostles and of Jesus Christ himself (contained in the Bible) are the unique, final, and infallible Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 3:15-16). God’s providential preservation of the text of the Bible was marvelously illustrated in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

By contrast, the LDS Church teaches that the Bible has been corrupted, is missing many “plain and precious parts,” and does not contain the fullness of the gospel (Book of Mormon—1 Nephi 13:26-29; Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 206; Gospel Principles [2009], 45-48). It also claims that the Book of Mormon is more accurate and reliable than the Bible (Articles of Faith 8; Book of Mormon Teacher Resource Manual [2004], 20).

9. Is the LDS Church the only true church?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that the true church was divinely established by Jesus and could never and will never disappear from the earth (Matthew 16:18; 18:15-18; 28:18-20; John 15:16; 17:11; Ephesians 3:21; Jude 3). Christians acknowledge that there have been times of corruption and apostasy within the church, but believe there has always been a remnant that held fast to the biblical essentials.

By contrast, the LDS Church claims to be the only true church on earth and that all other churches are part of a great apostasy that prevailed throughout church history until Joseph Smith. It teaches that only Mormons are authorized to preach the gospel or to perform baptisms and other ordinances (Doctrine & Covenants 1:29-30; Articles of Faith 4-5; Joseph Smith—History 1:18-19; Gospel Principles, 67, 92).

10. Can humans become gods just like their Heavenly Father?

The Bible teaches and orthodox Christians through the ages have believed that God is an absolutely unique being, existing from eternity to eternity as God (Psalm 90:2; 102:25-27; Isaiah 40:18, 25; 43:10). Redeemed human beings, though they will become perfected creatures bearing God’s image and like Christ in moral and physical perfection, will not become gods or beings of the same transcendent, divine nature as the Father, Jesus the Son, or the Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:44-48; Romans 8:14-29; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 5:17-21; Philippians 3:7-21; 2 Peter 1:3-7).

By contrast, the LDS Church teaches that faithful Mormons who fulfill all of their spiritual, moral, and ritual obligations can eventually attain the status of gods, beings of the same essential nature as God the Father ruling over their own worlds.“As man now is, God once was: As God now is, man may be”(Lorenzo Snow, in Presidents of the Church: Student Manual [2004], 88, 90; Gospel Fundamentals [2001], 201; Gospel Principles [2009], 275-79; Teachings of Presidents of the Church: George Albert Smith [2011], 71).

To all would be seekers To all open minded rational thinkers.

This article unlike most LDS here gives the sources for what true Christianity is and give the sources LDS on what they believe.

It contrasts the two and you can see for yourself and test forself in light of fact and evidence.

NO hear say but documented evidence that shows Mormons are not Christian.

LDS beliefs are night is to day with respect to the Faith and beliefs of real Christians

The evidence above proves this it is not my opinion but the evidence that declares it as so.

Do you honestly believe you are going get a true Christian to believe a man who rejected Jesus as Savior and Messiah ( king of the Jews ) as automotive or an Authority on God's word.

3:***Jehoiada chose two wives for Joash, and he had sons and daughters.***

Adult men in Israel under the law of Moses, were commanded to marry, with some exceptions: religious service, military duty, etc.

Therefore the law commanding marriage to wife of a dead brother, meant polygamy MUST occur: as it did on a REGULAR basis, being a COMMANDMENT.

Elders also commanded, to try to talk men into it: and punish a man who won't.

Deuteronomy 25:
"25:5 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger:

her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.

25:6 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel.

25:7 And if the man like not to take his brother's wife,
then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say,

"My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother."

25:8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;

25:9 Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot,

***and spit in his face***,

and shall answer and say,

"So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother's house."

Mormonism Is Not True…
http://mit.irr.org/if-mormonism-not-true

You have come to the conclusion—perhaps tentatively, perhaps rather definitely—that the LDS faith is not true. Whether you were raised LDS or converted to the Mormon religion, you realize that you no longer believe in it. Where do you go from here?

If you’re like a majority of LDS and former LDS in this situation, you are now unsure what to believe. You have questions not just about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon but also about Jesus Christ and the Bible. You might even be unsure about the existence of God. And more than likely you are in no hurry to get involved in another church, especially if you have family members who are still part of the LDS Church.

There are two things you need to know. First, this is all perfectly normal. It’s quite understandable to have doubts and questions about the big questions of life after realizing that the system of answers you had accepted for years no longer works for you. Second, please know that you are not alone. Other Mormons have gone through the same crisis of faith as you have. Others are going through it right now. You may prefer to wrestle with matters of faith and doubt on your own, or you may want to share your struggles with others who can relate to your experience. It’s totally up to you. Either way, we are here to help. We can connect you to other former and transitioning Mormons for support, and we can also provide you with resources that may assist you in working through your questions.

From this page, you can find a variety of articles and other informative resources of relevance to you in this time of rethinking what you believe and moving forward with your life.

Failed Prophecies of Joseph Smith

Prophecy # 1 - The Coming of the Lord
President Smith then stated that the meeting had been called, because God had commanded it; and it was made known to him by vision and by the Holy Spirit.... it was the will of God that they should be ordained to the ministry and go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time, for the coming of the Lord, which was nigh - even fifty six years should wind up the scene.(History of the Church, Vol. 2, page 182).
This prophecy was spoken by Joseph Smith in 1835, and recorded by Oliver Cowdery. The fifty-six years were passed by 1891.

Patten, that he settle up all his business as soon as he possibly can, and make a disposition of his merchandise, that he may perform a mission unto me next spring, in company with others, even twelve including himself, to testify of my name and bear glad tidings unto the world.(Doctrine & Covenants 114:1)
This prophecy was made on April 17, 1838. David W. Patten died in October of 1838 and thus never went on a mission the following spring.

Prophecy # 3 - The United States Government to be overthrown in a few years
I prophecy in the name of the Lord God of Israel, unless the United States redress the wrongs committed upon the Saints in the state of Missouri and punish the crimes committed by her officers that in a few years the government will be utterly overthrown and wasted, and there will not be so much as a potsherd left for their wickedness in permitting the murder of men, women and children, and the wholesale plunder and extermination of thousands of her citizens to go unpunished (History of the Church, Vol. 5, page 394).
Joseph Smith made this prophecy in May 6, 1843. However, the United States Government did not redress any of the wrongs committed against the Mormons in Missouri, and now over 150 years later, the U.S. Government still stands.

Prophecy # 4 - Congress to be broken up as a government
While discussing the petition to Congress, I prophesied, by virtue of the holy Priesthood vested in me, and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that, if Congress will not hear our petition and grant us protection, they shall be broken up as a government, and God shall damn them, and there shall be nothing left of them - not even a grease spot.(Millennial Star, Vol. 22, p. 455. See also History of the Church (HC), vol. 6, p. 116, though when this prediction was incorporated into the official history, Mormon Church leaders decided to leave out the "grease spot" part.)
The petition was not heard nor was protection granted (Deseret News, Vol. 1, p. 59). Yet, Congress was never broken up and continues to function to this day. It is interesting that the compilers of History of the Church, added an editorial note in an attempt to soften or explain this prophecy. They state that: "This prediction doubtless has reference to the party in power; to the ‘government’ considered as the administration;" (note, p. 116). According to the note in HC, this means the Democratic Party, which was in control at the time. However, the prediction is that "Congress shall be broken up as a government" and Congress is made up of representatives from both parties. The Saints were making an appeal to the General Government, not to the Democratic Party, a point made by a summary statement in the left margin beside this prophecy as it is recorded in HC.

Garments of the Holy Priesthood
Garments of the Holy Priesthood. Sacred underwear worn by faithful temple Mormons which, they are told in the temple, "will be a shield and protection to you against the power of the destroyer until you have finished your work here on earth." Sewn into the garments are markings that resemble the compass, square, and level of Freemasonry. Mormons are told these garments are symbolic of the covering God gave Adam and Eve after their fall. According to twelfth President Spencer Kimball,“Temple garments afford protection. I am sure one could go to extreme in worshiping the cloth of which the garment is made, but one could also go to the other extreme. Though generally I think our protection is a mental, spiritual, moral one, yet I am convinced that there could be and undoubtedly have been many cases where there has been, through faith, an actual physical protection, so we must not minimize that possibility”(The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p. 539). According to a church manual,“The garment provides a constant reminder of the covenants you have made in the temple. You should treat it with respect at all times. You should not expose it to the view of those who do not understand its significance, and you should not adjust it to accommodate different styles of clothing. When you wear it properly, it provides protection against temptation and evil. Wearing the garment is an outward expression of an inward commitment to follow the Savior”(Truth to the Faith, p. 173).
Again this was never Practiced by Jesus or his Disciples and is Ocultic at the very least.

Truth matters only someone in a non Christian Cult would think HOLY underwear with not Christian symbols on it would afford them protection.
You ignorant hick, the Jews were given garment commandments about what garment went OVER what other garment, and what garment went UNDER the other.

The Lord gave them commandments about how many TASSLES they could put on an item of wear.

You're just an ignorant nobody whose grasp of the FUNDAMENTALS of the Lord's dealings with a nation of people are so bad you can't even remember the ancient Israelites had a dress code.

You lost all respect from me when you didn't even know about the Lord commanding Levirate marriage to the entire nation of Israel.

Your zombie quotient's hanging in there with issues you found in a book: printed for money. And popularity. By someone NOT in a church called "The Church of Jesus Christ". By someone who does NOT have 12 Apostles.

Or have ministration of Angels. When John the Revelator saw the angel flying in the midst of Heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach, here in the last days, what do you think that means to mankind vis-a-vis God?

It means that in the last days an angel would come flying in heaven having the everlasting Gospel to preach.

Is there now going to BE NO ANGEL FLYING AMID HEAVEN having the everlasting Gospel to preach?

You're just one stupid Satan's tramp, and a misled hillbilly who doesn't even realize the non-belief in modern Angels being seen flying through heaven having the everlasting Gospel to preach,

means you're not allowed to believe an Angel came down flying through heaven having the everlasting gospel to preach,
when an angel CAME down from heaven, telling Joseph Smith, he had the everlasting Gospel to preach.

The law commands from THEN ON he be known as one who WOULDN'T OBEY the COMMANDMENT.
Satan possessed, family hating, heterosexuality hating, pathological liars addicted to Satanic assault of God's methods
will of course try yet to claim
it isn't in their Bible.
As we see of course it is.
Satan has his pathological lying zombies so possessed they come to assault the judgement of God in commanding LEVIRATE MARRIAGE
to the nation of Israel.
Again dumb dumb there is no command from God in any of the above to take more than one wife.

Yes he was pleasing to God he had a good heart, yet he made mistakes.

The NT sums it up this way LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS.

You with your false LDS beliefs think what you do makes you righteous or pleasing to God.

God does not look at the things outside a man does he looks for a man with a good heart and what his heart chooses the rest takes care of itself.

So again your above story records a priest who picks out two wives but again no Prophet speaking for the Lord commands this nor does God.

Again if you wish to know why he was pleasing to God it was because of his heart.

Again King David was found righteous in God's eyes yet he murdered committed adultery and had more than one wife.

Clearly his actions did not make him righteous as it does not for you or I.

Adult men in Israel under the law of Moses, were commanded to marry, you posted. LOL

But it does not say plural wives.

Again if you choose which don't because you are closed minded, to take all scripture in the OT and NT concerning marriage in context it is clear God's plan is one woman one man to make one flesh.

YOU choose to take a few lines from here and there out of context to justify what you want because you like the LDS idea that you can become a God with many wives and populate your own planet some day.
YOU are on the biggest ego trip a man can take, YOU think your God.

but you are a fool

You ignorant hick, the Jews were given garment commandments about what garment went OVER what other garment, and what garment went UNDER the other.

The Lord gave them commandments about how many TASSLES they could put on an item of wear.
You're just an ignorant nobody whose grasp of the FUNDAMENTALS of the Lord's dealings with a nation of people are so bad you can't even remember the ancient Israelites had a dress code.
You are one zombied up Satan-possessed sociopath.
Another attack of words with not one rebuttal to the evidence from LDS sources that shows LDS wear holy underwear like pagans or witches.

YOU compare OT garments to LDS garments that have pagan ungodly symbols on them and not even for a nano second consider the purpose of the garments used in the OT.

YOUR mind is of limited ability.

Apparently context is of no value to you.

Pastors in the Lutheran church I grew up in wear garments but again for completely different reasons.

YOU are the Hick and dumb one to boot.
