lol...bullcrap! Modern Christianity as a whole rejects even the notion that there could be any more than what exists in the Bible. This is why anything new that's been discovered that dates back to the time of Jesus or even close to it is seen as false and not canon.
Christians as a whole believe God put all he wanted to be had in the Bible and to believe otherwise is to claim God forgot some material.
So the cannon of the Bible has been closed for over 1800 years.
The Bible has a beginning and the Bible has an ending and so then does God have a beginning and an ending according to that thinking.
Modern Christians have no will or want to even speculate that God might put a real prophet on this earth. That prophet would have things to say of God that aren't in the Bible. And if it's not in the Bible according to modern Christianity it isn't of God. I had that Christian concept drilled into me by several Christian denominations from childhood to teens and have heard that concept still preached by Christian denominations.
Do you even know what Canon means NOPE

Rhetorical question
It means that which one measures by.
A ruler of Truth.

If God anointed an Apostle today to bring new revelation today Christians would treat him with the same test of authenticity as the Bereans did Paul.

That test would be, that which he preaches is it in harmony with What God has already revealed to this point. I.E. Scripture that came before it.
You see God said not man nor angel nor hell could take his word away that it is everlasting and he will uphold even if heaven and hell stopped to exist his word would still be there.

If someone claims as J.Smith did we need his revelation to be saved I would and have rejected him as false Prophet false messenger of God as all Christians have.

Because Jesus said he came to fulfill what was needed for Salvation, he came to reveal all that was needed and he said on the cross it is FINISHED!

He COMPLETED the way man attains everlasting salvation nothing else is needed.

So I do not discount that God may bring new revelation but he won't bring new revelation that contradicts himself, what he has already revealed.

YOUR cult your Mormon faith does exactly that it redefines salvation and the very nature of God and thus with out question is not Christian but just another false Gospel that the NT warns true Christians to be vigilant and watch for and b on guard for and be prepared to refute.

Mormons are not Christians the Bible tells us so.

You don't even read before you post.

The majority of your posts sources are anti hate sources... so I don't read one sided posts... that try to brainwash people.

I read sources that leave room for the reader to learn from and to analyze and compare the data to decide for themselves.

Thanks for the compliment... it's a joke coming from you, no worries I know you have hidden agendas.

Good luck with that

But you said in the post above you don't read them LOL ROFL.

Thus you have not been open minded, you have not shown tolerance, you have not shown humility that you may be wrong as you have never read them by your own words in your post.

No as your words show it is you who truly hates anything that might cause your little fantasy world called Mormonism to crumble.
You Hate truth, that is found in the true Gospel found in Jesus revealed in the inerrant word of God called the Bible.

You substitute the truth for a lie because your pride says you can be like God be a God.

It is the oldest lie in the book it is the lie that the serpent used on Adam and Eve in the Garden,

Why are you not allowed to eat the fruit.
Because God said so Adam replied.

Did he the serpent replied.

That is because God knows you will be like him if you eat it the Devil says.

So like you Adam and Eve fell in pride believing they too could be like God.

YOU live a lie its literally the oldest one in THE BOOK (Bible)

Glad you're so optimistic about the topic. Because Christianity as a whole isn't.
That which is considered canon of Jesus is in the NT. In 1700 years Christianity hasn't made an exception to anything else but what is within the Bible. That very well states Christianity isn't accepting of anything new.
So you think if God put a prophet on this earth with apostles, you think Christianity would accept them by tests against the Bible? Well God himself walked this very earth 2000 years ago and wasn't recognized by his own people. They rejected him as a Jewish prophet and rejected his followers and they killed him and killed many of his followers. If those people 2000 years ago couldn't even recognize God by testing him against their scriptures, how in the *ell do you think Christianity would recognize a prophet claiming to be of God now? They wouldn't.
Nice to know you're keeping a positive outlook about it though :)

Can you actually show any evidence that supports Mormonism's claims?

Or like in so many similar LDS threads is this the only thing you LDS can do is gang up and be bullies and name call and mud sling at those who post evidence and facts that show it is impossible for Mormons to be Christians??

lol....No. Reading comprehension is your issue because you take what is perfectly understandable and twist it to mean what it never said. That's called deceit and lying for your god that urges you to do such a thing and he pats you on your back for calling it truth.
For instance, in the following do note that in this verse, it isn't stated God had allowed all the children of Israel to partake in this principle and doctrine. As a matter of fact God spells it out that only certain individuals were allowed by God to partake in this practice, read the fricking verse as it was written, not as you deceitfully twist it to mean.
1 Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you my servant Joseph, that inasmuch as you have inquired of my hand to know and understand wherein I, the Lord, justified my servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as also Moses, David and Solomon, my servants, as touching the principle and doctrine of their having many wives and concubines—
Next, God states in this verse... "...for all those who have this law revealed unto them must obey the same." That means not everyone as a whole would have this law revealed to them, but only select individuals.
That means this principle and doctrine wasn't a matter of salvation FOR EACH AND EVERY CHURCH MEMBER. But it was a matter of salvation to those of whom it was required of to partake of that principle and doctrine.
And you reverting to your usual pathetic lies you use to make a really stupid twisted point only prove how far you will go to foster your lies.
The doctrine of plural marriage was never given for all church members male and female. It was never stated and it was never written that all male and female church members had to be part of a polygamous marriage or risk going to hell etc. And you're reverting to pathetic twisted lies stating that is how it reads.
So remain a liar or read the information as it was written "..for all those who have this law revealed unto them must obey the same."
Playing child word games again, pathetic. Not playing this time.

According to what was written in that conversation, Jesus never even attempted to teach the Sadducees that there was an resurrection let alone an afterlife. There was no teaching about either in the Torah. They were like you. They believed in the literal writing of the Torah as you believe in the NT. And like them, if it wasn't in the scriptures as you also claim it, God never said it.
Jesus understood what they believed and what they didn't believe. You can remain as ignorant of this conversation Jesus had with them to your hearts delight but you will suffer for your own idiocy of thought.
Jesus's first response was that they knew not the power of God just as you don't know it because like them, you deny the power of God by containing it to what you think the power of God is and what you state the power of God isn't just as the Sadducees proclaimed it.
Nothing Jesus told them they accepted nor did they believe because they didn't believe in a resurrection or an afterlife. So anything Jesus said was a waste of his breath. Those like you and the Sadducees that contain the power of God to what one comprehends it to be and nothing more will never understand the power of God has never came with limitations.
He clearly made a statement about the resurrection, talking to you is a waste of breath. You're boring.

If you want access to verifiable footnoted sources that you can verify yourself
Then these sites all document their assertions with EVIDENCE Biblical Historical and verifiable.

If God has not anointed anyone in 1900 years to bring new revelation so be it God is sovereign his will be done not yours not mine.

But Jesus left so the Holy Spirit could come and be our great comforter till the second coming he has not left us alone.

I am seeing now as I write why LDS what there to be new revelation so badly they believe a lie. You are alone, your spirit is alone and empty lacking the indwelling of Holy Spirit as you are not Christian. So you fill the void with fake man made substitutions as your pride is great and you will not admit you are wrong.

Ro 1:19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
Ro 1:20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Ro 1:21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Ro 1:22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
Ro 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
Ro 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
Ro 1:25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

You are not Christians LDS that is, you see Christians are indwelt with the truth the one true God the Holy Spirit we are not alone we have that which revelation previously alluded to living and dwelling with in us.
We are filled and indwelt with that which is made of Revelation God himself.

Like in Jesus's day God's true followers saw Jesus and knew who he was, they were all Jews and on pentecost these Jews were filled with the Spirit of Truth.

LDS can't see truth and know when its in front of them with out the Spirit. You don't even realize that which posted about the Jews rejecting the true Messiah is exactly what you and the LDS do today by accepting Mormon Doctrine which denies the same Jesus the Jews rejected and crucified.

Like then if God Sends a true messenger his true Christians will know. They are in dwelt with God's Holy Spirit and can't miss it.

Like then we too who are true followers of Jesus know in the Spirit Mormonism is False.

The Holy Spirit confirms his word the Bible to us and reveals to us through his word that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were false Prophets, tools of the evil one, sellers of a false Gospel.
