12th Article Of Faith In Mormonism Exposed

The 12th Article Of Faith in Mormonism sounds good on paper, but when examining it, we see many different issues with this belief. It reads, “we believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.” (Articles Of Faith) What we see here are no ifs, ands, or buts. It is clear that we are to obey people of authority no matter what. This is in contrast to what the Bible teaches. Paul taught, “but them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work.” (Titus 3:1) So what reasons do we obey the laws of the land? If they are for our good. Otherwise, to disobey a person of authority that is corrupt is warranted. For example, look at the times of Hitler in Germany. No Christian should’ve been confined to the orders of these Nazi tyrants. However, in looking at the beliefs in Mormonism, they wouldn’t have done a thing when it comes to Hitler, but simply obeyed every evil and corrupt order the Nazis made.

Jesus taught that us having a sword to protect ourselves is important. “And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” (Luke 22:35,36) This was to protect themselves when the government is out of order. This is what Jesus’s disciples taught also. “And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:27-29) Therefore, don’t give heed to this false belief in Mormonism, but only obey authorities if good works come forth also. Obeying God comes first. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh lord, I pray for the sake of the Mormon people. They are lost in their false beliefs. It cannot be all their fault, for they are under the mind control of their prophets. At their beck and call do they give heed to their commands. No matter what, do they obey men even if it goes against You and what the Bible has taught. God, I have tried to talk sense to them about many of their false beliefs, but still, they resist the truth in order to believe in what they have been taught instead. Thankfully, today You led Rob and I to a young man in Mormonism that was seeking the truth. We spent about an hour and a half at his doorstep, while You opened up our mouths to talk to Him about Your truths. Lord, help him remember the things we taught when it comes to the atonement, false prophets, salvation, temples, the Book of Mormon, the Bible, only one God, and You, Father, being Spirit. The truth is, Joseph Smith did not see You, Father. Help Him know this and not enter the LDS mission field. I believe in You, Jesus. I trust in You. Amen.
