Mormons Teach the Following

The WORD of GOD, Our CHRISTIAN Bible


"These are not exhaustive lists"
 




**
The Bible is only correct when it agrees with the book of
     Mormon.
(History of the Church, vol. 4, p. 461.)


THE DOCTRINE OF THE SCRIPTURES (Bibliology)

**The original writings were the inerrant, plenary inspired
     Word of God. 
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21;
      Hebrews 1:1-2; Matthew 24:35)







**
The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births
     of our children
; it was the result of natural action.  He
     partook of flesh and blood - was begotten of his Father,
     as we were of our fathers,
(Journal of Discourses, vol. 8,
     p.115).


THE DOCTRINE OF JESUS CHRIST
(Christology)

Born of a Virgin, THE Son of God

**Matthew 1:23, "Behold, the virgin shall be with child,
    and bear a Son, and they shall call His name
    Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."
    ( Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6-7; Isaiah 8:10)

**Luke 1:26-35,"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel
     was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
     [27] to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was
     Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was
     Mary. [28] And having come in, the angel said to her,
     "Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you;
      blessed are you among women!" [29] But when she saw
      him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered
      what manner of greeting this was. [30] Then the angel
      said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found
      favor with God. [31] And behold, you will conceive in
      your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His
      name Jesus. [32] He will be great, and will be called the
      Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the
      throne of His father David. [33] And He will reign over
      the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there
      will be no end." [34] Then Mary said to the angel,
      "How can this be, since I do not know a man?"
      [35] 
And the angel answered and said to her, "The
      Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the
      Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that
      Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of
       God." (Luke 1:19; Matthew 2:23)

    as siblings in heaven to them both, (Mormon Doctrine,

     2 Peter 1:4; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 3:18)

The Truth from the Word of God:

Jesus Christ is The Mighty God and The Everlasting Father, Isaiah 9:6

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Jesus Christ told Philip and the other disciples that He is "God the Father," John 14:8-9

"Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us. [9] Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, PhilipHe that hath seen Me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?" 

Please consider that the very texts you use concerning the "singleness" of Jehovah God instruct all that there are no other gods, i.e. according to your witness,  Jesus Christ is "a" god.  Therefore, Jesus Christ isn't "a" god but He is "Thee God."

Isaiah 44:6 
Thus says the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God

Isaiah 44:8 
Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any

Isaiah 45:5 
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 

The verses above, Isaiah 44:8 and 45:5, clearly states that there is no other God, in the universe beside the Lord and God of Isaiah's inspired writings. 

{'Elowahh, Tsuwr, Yehovah, 'Elohiym are the Hebrew  words for God and Lord as used in these two verses)

These verses clearly creates a major problem for you that are professing Mormon, Latter Day Saints and Jehovah Witnesses.  At the front doors of people across the nations you readily read from "your" bible  "your" mistranslation of  John 1:1, and I quote your translation, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was "a" God."  Your translators have deceived you by adding the article "a", which is not in the Greek texts, thereby creating in your understanding another god.  

Question:  How can there be two (2) God's when God clearly states that He is the one-and-only God and there are no other Gods (plural)?

In Isaiah 44:8b the Hebrew word for "God" is "Tsuwr".  "yea, there is no God / Tsuwr;  I know not any."  The Hebrew word for God / Tsuwr means a rock or boulder; figuratively a refuge.  In the inspired letters written by the Apostle Paul quotes Isaiah 28:16 and Isaiah 8:14 and declares to you and to me that Jesus Christ "is" that "Rock".

Romans 9:33 
"As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."

1 Corinthians 10:4 
"And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." 

Please understand that the inspired words of Isaiah are correct.  There is only one God
 ('Elowahh / Tsuwr / Yehovah / 'Elohiym)
.
That One-and-Only God is Jesus Christ:

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

John 1:10
"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him."

In the following passage we are instructed that Jesus Christ is both, God the Son and God the Creator God, Colossians 1:13-18

"He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, [14] in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. [15] He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. [16] For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. [17] And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. [18] And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence." 

PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING

Moses trusted In Jesus Christ's Old Testament pre-existence, Hebrews 11:24-26

"By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
[25]
Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; [26] Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had faith unto the future  reward."

Moses' faith gives ample warning that all who do not accept by faith the above that they have been deceived, 2 John 7-11 and Jude verse:4

2 John 1:7-11, "For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. [8] Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. [9] Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. [10] If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; [11] for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds."

Jude 1:4, "For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."

The key to understanding the "singleness doctrine" of the Triune Godhead which is simply stated as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is believing and trusting by Faith,

Hebrews 11:1-3,
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report. [3] Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

What you do not understand is the our Christian belief and walking by faith living life style becomes a believing + walking = experiential faith living, lifestyle Christian walk.  All Truly Born Again Christians experience God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit within us, you do not.

The Truly Born Again Christian believes and lives by faith, not by sight:

2 Corinthians 5:7, "For we walk by faith, not by sight"

Let me make one last attempt in explaining your problem when you come to the door of a Truly Born Again Christian  trying to convince us that you have something that we need.

Dear Muslim neighbor, as a Christian we don't simply know about God from a book or a scroll, we personally experience Him because He lives within us.

Dear L.D.S, Mormon and Jehovah Witness neighbor, we don't simply know about Jehovah God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from a book, scroll or a Bible, He lives within us and we personally experience Him; He talks to us and we talk to Him.  Our Christian walk of faith began by simply trusting in His word, the Holy Bible, and accepting by faith and faith alone that He lived, He died on the cross of Calvary for our  / my sins; He was buried; on the third day He arose from the grave; He then walked on this earth intermingling and talking with innumerable numbers of people (historical fact) and He was physically received up into Heaven where He is awaiting the day of His return to bring me into Heaven with Him for all Eternity.

By simple faith we believed the above and we experienced God the Holy Spirit within us giving us power over sins that we never had before.

Because we experienced a new power from within, we trusted the Word of God for some other aspect in our lives and experienced another victory or blessing that could only have come from the Hand of Jehovah, God.

I can go on and on, I won't.  The reality is that we have gone from a simple faith in Jehovah God the Son, Jesus Christ for salvation; experienced the new power of Jehovah God the Holy Spirit within over sins which means that we then had simple faith + experienced victory = faith and experience.  Because that's a continuing progression of faith + experience reality in the life of every Truly Born Again Christian, what could you possibly offer of any Eternal value to any True Christian?  

Reality: You must be "Truly Born Again," there is no other option!

John 3:3
"'Jesus answered and said unto him,
'
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God."'

John 3:6-7
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
[7] Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."
