The first article in the Mormon church reads, “we believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.” (The Articles Of Faith) This sounds great on paper and Biblical at that. But when we see this expanded upon is when we see some big red flags. And this is the problem with their statement of faith. They keep new believers from knowing what they really believe. We see a cover-up happening in the walls of their church, especially for new converts. How they believe in the Father, who is God, Jesus Christ, who is God, and the Holy Ghost, who is God. Three Gods in three different beings. The Father, having a body of flesh and bones, like unto the Son, but the Holy Spirit, being Spirit only. This is what they should have said in their article of faith. People should not have to find out later on after they are already invested in their religion of choice. The truth of the matter is… If anyone is coming from Christianity to Mormonism, there is an undoing of beliefs in order to conform to their new ones.
Early on, new converts would still believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God. Three persons in one eternal being. The Father, being Spirit only, like unto the Holy Spirit, being omnipresent. Jesus, being the temple, of which they can all dwell perfectly in as one God. But no more can any of this be true. To make sure they are not contentious they just adapt to their newfound beliefs. It might be a struggle at first, but like any sin, it becomes easier the more a person justifies them. So who would wish to remove Christian roots from people and put them on a different path? This would be Satan. There are two kinds of spirits in this world. The Holy Spirit in Christianity and evil spirits in Mormonism, where evil now appears to be good. What we see in cults has happened for centuries. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20) This is prevalent in our society, including churches like Mormonism. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray for anyone in Mormonism that is capable of being saved. I never know who will be accepting of Christian teachings. I know that the gospel needs to be taught in all the world and to every person, but to this one people group we have met the hardest of hearts. They would say that it is because they are firm in their faith, but I would say that their hearts are hardened towards You and Your truth. Even the simple truths of who You are, God, are rejected. There have been many laughers and scoffers even when I teach through the Bible. Why is it that Your truth is hard to accept, especially in cults? I only want people to know You, Jesus, and to also believe what You and Your disciples have taught. I wish they could see this. How my heart is genuine when I witness to different Mormons. Lord, help them know that the path they are on is destruction, but how this can easily be changed. Come and step into their lives and light it up like You have mine and others. I love You, Lord. I trust in You, God. Amen.
