Mormon “Prophet” Joseph Smith contradicts the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

  The Bible says that God is a Spirit: God is Spirit,  and those who worship Him  must worship in  spirit and truth. John 4:24

Even the Book of Mormon says God is a Spirit: And then Ammon said: Believest thou that there is a Great Spirit? And he said yea. And Ammon said: This is God. And Ammon said unto him again: Believest thou that this Great Spirit Spirit, who is God, created all things which are in heaven and in the earth. Alma 18:26-28

(Side note: I find it interesting that, although this was supposed to be penned about 90 BC by Indians, it is in King James English. But that’s another whole topic).

So what does Joseph Smith say? The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s. Doctrine and Covenants 130:22.

If you tell the truth, you never have to remember what you said.

  1. What I find rather odd about Mormons these days is that when Joseph had his “first vision”, Jesus told him not to join any of the established denominations because their creeds were an abomination to Him, and that “They draw near with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me.”

    Yet look at the Mormon church today. They are wanting so bad to be considered Christians, and even saying that “men should be allowed to worship according to the dictates of their own hearts.” So now, it’s OK for them to want to join us, even though the Church in America today is in worse shape than it was in 1820.

    And speaking of contradictions, check out Section 132 of the Doctrine and Covenants, and compare it to the BOM, specifically Jacob 2:23-27. That’s a real hoot!


  2. I just bought “Mormon Doctrine” to read as I have felt led to witness to Mormons recently. I have to tell you about my experience today. I am in CA and I will be visiting Westminster tomorrow. The admissions guy I spoke with today told me his sister lives in Cedar Rapids, where I live, and her husband teaches at the community college there. Well I happen to be taking two online history classes there and guess who my instructor is, you guessed it, his brother in law. He then proceeds to tell me they are Mormon. I told him about my feeling the desire to witness to Mormons and he says to tell my instructor about our visit and invite him over. What a day. If you would like to hear more about what happens with this story I will be happy to keep you posted.
    In Christ


  3. Honestly, you guys need to put a little more thought into these criticisms of Mormonism. Almost invariably, when the Book of Mormon refers to God, it’s a reference to Jesus Christ. In 90 B.C., it was entirely correct to say that He was a spirit. That isn’t a contradiction with D&C 130 because that passage is speaking of the Father. Don’t you realize that Mormons believe that references to “God” can apply to any member of the Trinity?

    Fourpointer, I’m not sure what it is about your comparison between Jacob 3 and D&C 132 that makes it a “hoot.” A careful reading of the Jacob passage shows that God says He may command his people to practice polygamy.

    It’s easy to mock any religion if you approach it as superficially as you have Mormonism.


  4. Yes Fourpointer. I am well aware of the flip flopping of polygamy bad, polygamy good, polygamy bad again. I plan to feature the polygamy problem on this blog soon, including some of the many other gems of Mormonism.


  5. Yes Alan, I would love to hear more about it. If you also want a ton of resources on Mormonism (i.e. Sermons, Lectures, Debates, etc.) let me know. I will send you a two CD-ROM set of over 40 hours of material that will help you better understand what you will be up against in your mission to witness the True Gospel to Mormons. Just e-mail me and I’ll send it to you free. Also, click on Mormonism under my categories for more info.

    Oh and BTW, I linked to your blog on my blog! :o)


  6. I don’t need to know anything about the people who make specious arguments in order to know that their arguments are specious. I pointed out that the text referred to was internally consistent and that your arguments were superficial. If you think otherwise, demonstrate it–don’t hide behind the irrelevant fact that I don’t know anything about the critics. As Luther declared, “Unless I be refuted by Scriptural testimonies, or by clear arguments—for I believe neither the Pope nor the councils alone [nor the philosophy of Protestants], since it is clear that they have often erred and contradicted one another—I am convinced by the passages of Scripture, which I have cited…”


  7. Alma Allred (Friuliveneto):

    It is also easy to mock those who critique Mormonism when you know nothing about them. I have studied Mormonism for years. And I can say not only intellectually but also because my spirit bears witness with me, that Joseph Smith was a false prophet and the Mormon Church is a false Church.

    You can twist, turn, manipulate and use smoke and mirrors all day long to defend the countless problems within Mormonism, but the facts still speak for themselves.


  8. Although I completely agree with your quote from Luther, I find it very interesting that you quote him. According to your “prophet” Joseph Smith, Luther was an apostate along with every denomination and preacher (remember the alleged conversation Joseph had in the forest?).

    The comments about Mormonism are not specious, but come from years of study (without the indoctrination of the Mormon “church” or FARMS, and using mostly LDS published materials). Additionally they come from the Holy Spirit bearing witness that Mormonism is a false religion created by a false prophet.

    But we could discuss this till the return of the Lord Jesus Christ (which consequently Joseph Smith claimed would happen by 1891. . . oops, false prophecy).

    Suffice to say, I have every intention of doing as you asked: “demonstrating it.” If you continue checking back you will see that I will continue adding to this blog more proof. Primarily (and almost exclusively) using LDS documents and publications.

    See you in the next LDS post!

    – The Pilgrim –


  9. Pilgrim,

    I totally agree. Mormonism is a dangerous cult. Mormons have been duped into thinking they are Christians. Christianity is not a “blind” faith. Biblical manuscripts, archeology, Prophecy, Acts of the Holy Spirit, and a history that is tied to the people and the Land of Israel provide solid structural evidence for our Christian Faith and our bible. The book and practice of Mormonism has none of that. Additionally, to take Jesus out of that cultural and historical milieu is something that the real prophets of the old testament never did. Jesus was truly a Jewish Theologian and to take him or the scriptures out of that context (like the Mormon doctrine has done) is heresy.

    “A text without a context is a pretext for error”

  10. Alma Allred (Friuliveneto):

    Which Mormon sect is correct, the FLDS or the LDS and why? Surely one of these two Mormon denominations must be aposate, no?

    Therefore if one is apostate why did it apostasize from the true Mormon faith of the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. and what precisely are the dogmatic differences which make it apostate?

    In Christ,


  11. Alan,

    May I recommend Dr. James White’s Alpha & Omega Ministries resources for your edification as you prayerfully prepare yourself to contend against the powers and principalities of this fallen world by rebuking and correcting the false religion of Mormonism.

    Another fine apologetic resource on the error riddled LDS faith is CARM.

    In Christ,
