Has anyone noticed the increased Mormon propaganda and advertising on the internet these days? The Mormon church is advertising like wildfire on prominent websites such as Hotmail and Thesauras Online. What are they advertising? Happiness. How to find happiness. Seems like they have gotten on board with the church marketers just like the seeker-sensitive movement of evangelicalism has. I must confess that Christian seeker-sensitive churches make me cringe when I see how indinstict their message has become from the Mormons. So what about the Mormon Advert then?
On the first page is a big picture/flash image saying “Want Happiness?” They also make the immediate claim to be Christian because they profess Christ. Ehhhhhhhhhhhh NO, NO, NO. If you are a mormon and you are reading this let me say this. Stop lieing to people. Stop trying to sell yourselves as a Christian denomination when you are in fact a cult; Mormonism does not believe in anything that historic Christianity has and still does today. You preach another Gospel other than that which is revealed in the Bible and you lie and deceive many people into joining your church. It is most likely that you, yourself haven been deceived. Please look to Christ and Christ alone not Joseph Smith or the Mormon Church.
Let me point out a few lies on the website.
1)Heavenly Father’s Plan of Happiness- On this article on the site Mormon.org says this; ” One of God’s gifts is the Resurrection, the reuniting of the physical body and spirit, made possible by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. After you are resurrected, you will go before God to be judged according to your works and the intents of your heart”……ehhhhh i’m sorry how can you claim to be Christian and make that claim? The Bible ACTUALLY TEACHES IN Ephesians Chapter 2:4-10;
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works,so that no one may boast.”
So that’s lie number 1. We are saved by Grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Not works as the Mormons claim. Paul repeats himself in this passage to hammer home the message. Let me follow that method by emphasising once more- it is BY GRACE through FAITH in CHRIST that we are saved.
2) Mormon.org says this “Where did I come from? Your life did not begin at birth, nor will it end at death. You are made up of a spirit body (sometimes called the soul) and a physical body. Heavenly Father created your spirit body, and you lived with Him before you were born on earth. You knew and loved Him, and He knew and loved you”
Emmmmmmm I’m sorry where does the Bible say this? Yes life does not end at death because, man has a God-given soul that will go on for eternity. Yes God loved and knew us before he formed us in the womb. He would not be omniscient if he did not know and plan for us to come into existence. But we didnt actually exist before we were born. Only when we are born do we come into existence. We do not, as the Mormons believe, exist as spiritual children to a Father and Mother in Heaven who have non-stop celestial sex creating lots of spiritual babies to eventually send down to earth. This view is not Biblical and it is false. It is a lie from the very pits of Hell.
3). They also claim “The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ is an actual record of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains, as does the Bible, the fullness of the everlasting gospel.”
Again this is lies. The Bible alone is God’s full and final authority in all things pertaining to salvation. The whole of Scripture points to Christ as being the Messiah and Jude 3 tells us that the faith “was once and for all delivered to the Saints.” The Mormon claim that the church went into apostasy is therefore a direct contradiction to the Bibles claim. Paul also writes in Galatians that if any man “or an angel from heaven preaches another gospel then let him be accursed”. Oh that’s right….wasn’t it the angel Moroni that appeared to Joseph Smith? Yes indeed. For the Bible also warns us in 1 Corinthians that Satan and his minions have the ability to appear as angels of light. Finally there is no archeological evidence to support the Mormon claim that Jesus appeared to the Native Americans. It is an unfounded myth. Likewise recent DNA shows that Native Americans are actually more genetically like Northern Asians (Siberia, Mongol) than the Jews, whom they claim the Native American Indians were a lost tribe of. The claim that the evidence for this is the Book or Mormon is ridiculous. It is quite convenient that Joseph Smith did not allow anyone to see the Book and an “angel” came and took the Book away. If God is the same today, yesterday and forever then why would God allow for original early Bible manuscripts to be found by archaeologists in order to support Biblical truth yet remove another testament that was so recent it could be displayed? The answer in short is that it is lies.
For now I will say no more. I have a feeling I will be posting more on this soon.
