The 13th Article of Faith reads, “we believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.” (Articles Of Faith) On Paper, this statement of faith sounds Biblical. However, this is until we look at it by way of what this church is doing. For example, when they say the phrase, “believe all things”, they mean to say that they believe everything their prophets tell them, even if it contradicts the Bible. Therefore, what their church teaches trumps what God’s Word says. So you got to be careful when Mormons quote this verse, for it doesn’t mean what you think it is. For example, if Christians say, we “believe all things”, we mean all things that the Bible teaches, not what man may say. This is in stark contrast to what Mormonism teaches. People fail us in this life, but God and His Word will never fail us. Trust in Jesus!
When I read their article of faith, it makes me think of 1 Corinthians, chapter 13. In particular, these verses. “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.“ (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) Notice how their article of faith quotes parts of these verses. You can see this in the words in bold above. Notice how Christians endure all things, while Mormons hope to endure all things. This means enduring in our faith in Jesus until the end of our life, even if it means having a bullet put in our heads because of persecution. Notice how in Mormonism, they hope to do everything they can in order to be saved, while in Christianity, we rely solely on Jesus for salvation and not our own works. The truth is, God’s Word is not trusted in the Mormon church but men’s words. Enduring in their faith in Jesus alone is not done either. They are not to be trusted. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that Mormons will stop putting all their trust in their church leaders, when they should be trusting in You and Your Words instead. God, it makes me sick inside just thinking of all the false teachings that Mormons are being fed on a weekly basis. They wouldn’t dream of people missing church, for they may lose the mind control that they have while at church. God, it doesn’t matter if they once believed in truths like the trinity, while in the early stages of the Book of Mormon, they wouldn’t dare teach it now. Surely, Joseph Smith and his pals put together this book while still beleiving in one God that is unchangeable, the trinity, hell, the lake of fire, and other truths. These teachings still exist in their fabricated book, but cult leaders wouldn’t dare bring them up. Especially when it says that You, God, caused people to become black because of their sins. This would make You to be a racist God, which You are not. Lord, I only wish that Mormons could be saved, but this is impossible in their current belief system. Open their eyes to Your truth. I believe in You, Jesus. I trust in You, Lord. I love You. Amen.
