Friday Night we went to the LDS Temple to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with Mormons. The reason we went to share the gospel is that Jesus of the Bible is different than the Jesus of the LDS Church. The Mormon Jesus came to make man in the “likeness of God.” This sounds right except they define likeness differently. What is meant by likeness is one trusting Jesus will also be elevated to God status. This is a heresy and as such men and women need to be rescued from such false doctrines.
The fall both of Satan and Man stemmed from a desire to become like God. In Isaiah 14:13 Satan was cast from the presence of God because he want to be like God. He then went on to deceive Eve into disobeying God that when she ate of the fruit should be like God knowing good and evil Genesis 3:4. God also brought low Nebuchadnezzar who attempted to exalt himself above the LORD Duet 4:28-33. The Scripture is clear that God will bring low everyone
Here are some Scriptures that every Mormon needs to consider in regard to God’s glory and whether there are other gods. May God save Mormons from their false Christ and bring repentance and faith in the true Lord Jesus Christ.
I would encourage you to mark these passages in your Bible so that they are easy to find. (Bold Sections are to give emphasis and are not found in the Scripture)
Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.
Isaiah 43:10 “ You are My witnesses,” says the LORD,
“ And My servant whom I have chosen,
That you may know and believe Me,
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
Nor shall there be after Me.
Isaiah 44:6 6 “ Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel,
And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts:
‘ I am the First and I am the Last;
Besides Me there is no God.
7 And who can proclaim as I do?
Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me,
Since I appointed the ancient people.
And the things that are coming and shall come,
Let them show these to them.
8 Do not fear, nor be afraid;
Have I not told you from that time, and declared it?
You are My witnesses.
Is there a God besides Me?
Indeed there is no other Rock;
I know not one.’”
Isaiah 45:4 For Jacob My servant’s sake,
And Israel My elect,
I have even called you by your name;
I have named you, though you have not known Me.
5 I am the LORD, and there is no other;
There is no God besides Me.
I will gird you, though you have not known Me,
6 That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting
That there is none besides Me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other;
Isaiah 46:8-10 8 “ Remember this, and show yourselves men;
Recall to mind, O you transgressors.
9 Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’
Isaiah 48:11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;
For how should My name be profaned?
And I will not give My glory to another.
