Over the years, I have tried to reason with Mormons about their false beliefs. And in saying that, I have had mixed results, depending on my encounter with each of them. I have seen many people come out of the Mormon faith and being fully surrendered to Jesus. These people are no longer living under the bondage of religion, but are freely believing in and following Christ alone. Praise God, for they are God’s elect. However, I have also seen myriads of these people walk away upset and wag their heads at me, while after hearing me preach or talk with them. One such false belief that I have mentioned time and time again with them, of which they like to justify is them becoming God’s when they die. It doesn’t matter the verses I share with them about there only being one God. However, today is going to be a little different than the past. We will raise the stakes here and see how these people can answer directly to God.
A Mormon may say, “I believe that after I die, that I will be married to my wife for all eternity, while in the Celestial glory. We will also obtain our very own planet where we will be able to raise our own spirit children as God did on earth.” This sounds well and good in their own imaginations. That is until God wakes them up from their slumber and says to them. “The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.” (Luke 20:34-36) This cannot get any more clear that after we die there is no more marriage and that we are the children of God and not god’s ourselves. We are like unto the angels, who are not given into marriage.
But there is more to their belief in multiple God’s. They also teach and say, “just as Jesus became a God upon coming to earth and then rising from the dead, we will become a God like Him. The Father became a God the same way and so His children are granted the same favor when they die.” This again can sound well and good if people are not reading the Bible. This is because, if they were, they would hear God say to them, “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:5,6) What will they say to God now? It is my prayer that these lost people will accept what God has said. The same God of Israel and all the world, who is from everlasting to everlasting. The time is now to repent from all our false beliefs and allow ourselves to learn from the Lord today. Only then can we be saved and escape hell.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that our hearts will be opened up to You like never before. I know that many people have heard good sermons in church over the years, and even been touched by those teachings. However, the feelings in our hearts are deceitful and can easily betray us. So I am saddened to think that there are millions of people who die under the influence of false teachers. But what will these people say when they reach You in judgment? Will they remain in their unbelief, when it comes to Your true teachings? Unfortunately, they will have to bow down to You and know that what they have believed in all their life was wrong. Surely, there is no other way but through You, Jesus, that we can be saved. We cannot go to heaven another way or think we can sneak into heaven by our good merits. I know that without You leading us in this life, all our own good works are as filthy rags. Only through Your hands of mercy and grace, can we perform good works that are meaningful for Your kingdom. I believe in You, Lord. I honor You and love You more than all things. You are my God and I worship You. Amen.
