"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (Matthew 7:13-15) – About A.D. 50–60.

"Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat; Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (3 Nephi 14:13-15) – About A.D. 34.

The King James Version of Matthew, chapter 7, was copied and pasted into the Book of Mormon. This chapter of Isaiah can be found in 3 Nephi, chapter 14. The book of Isaiah and 3 Nephi are also available to read in the next chapters of this book. Details of what took place can be found below…

The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapter 7, and 3 Nephi, chapter 14, have no significant differences. The content found in 3 Nephi appears to repeat the same verses found in the book of Matthew. The language, teachings, and parables line up nearly word for word, minus a few differences. The Book of Mormon also contains passages copied in the King James style language. In comparison, people who give speeches adapt them to connect with their audience. This ensures effective communication. As for this message, what Jesus taught the people of Israel was specific for them. The people in America would have needed to hear something specific to their culture, and addressed differently. A portion of that sermon is the following. It is written, "enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (Matthew 7:13-15) Only few people are saved. Those who trust in Jesus have no worries come death.

What is interesting about this sermon from Jesus, is that the Mormon people don't agree with these verses. They teach that everyone will be saved and not a few. This is why they do baptisms for the dead, and other works for dead people, that they may escape hell and go to heaven. How interesting that this goes against what even the Jesus of the Book of Mormon said. See for yourself, as this supposed Jesus said the exact same thing to the people in America. It is written, "enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat; Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." (3 Nephi 14:13-15) Looking deeper into these verses, we learn that there is a straight gate that leads to life eternal. There is also a brought way that leads to destruction. Few shall find the straight path, and most people will go down the broad path. This is because of false teachers and prophets. They are ravening wolves, who scatter the true believers of Jesus. This has happened in Mormonism. The LDS missionaries are taking people out of Christianity and into a cult that does not save. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I love Your ways and despise what is evil. This is all because You have taken away my heart of stone and replaced it with a heart that burns for You. There is nothing else I’d rather do than serve You and bring people to You for salvation. Even the Mormons, who see themselves as very religious people, are so far from You and have a great need to be saved. They may not think this, as they feel just fine in their current belief system and lifestyle. They feel comfortable with their family and friends, so they avoid any argument or disagreement to maintain peace. Therefore, I am amazed at all the people who leave Mormonism for Your sake. They are making a huge leap of faith, even though life may not be as easy from there on out. The same thing happened to me when I found out that the LDS church was false back in 2012. In the walk-in closet of my house, it came to me like a bolt of lightning that I was in a cult. I could not deny it any longer and had to leave it immediately. Thankfully, You put in my flesh a heart that longs to do Your will, so this choice to follow You came quickly. To live for You is gain, but to live apart from You is misery. Dissension did arise with my family and friends. People were disappointed in my decision, but I know it was for You. I love You, more than anything, God. Amen.
