Mormonism was founded by a man named Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith stated he was visited by angel called Moroni while praying. He began to receive revelations through this spirit that is contrary to the Bible. This is why Mormonism is not of God. We will list the teachings that is contrary to the Bible.
Mormons are taught that God, the father in Heaven, was once a man and the Holy Spirit is spirit, force of God. However the Bible makes it clear that Jehovah, the father in Heaven, is spirit and never was a man (John 4:24). The Holy Spirit is not a force but the 3rd person for the trinity. This teaching is heretic because this teaches that God is on the same level as human beings. However God does not have a human nature because he is not corrupted in sin as we are (Numbers 23:19). God is not limit to time, space, or matter like we are (Genesis 1:1, Jeremiah 32:27). Mormons believe that God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit is three different people. However God is triune which means three in one spirit with the father, son, and the Holy Spirit.
2. Mother of Heaven
Mormons believe that human beings are loved by both a heavenly father and heavenly mother. They believed this because Joseph Smith had a vision of a heavenly mother, who is the wife, side by side with the father in Heaven. However the Bible makes it clear that we as human beings do not have a heavenly father but a creator. We are adopted by the father in Heaven when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (Galatians 4:4-5). The Bible does mention a queen of Heaven but she is a demon (Jeremiah 7:18). She is also the mother of prostitutes (Revelation 17:3-6). Any religion that worships a mother of Heaven, they are actually worshiping a demon principality (Ephesians 6:12).
3. Jesus Christ
Mormons believe that Jesus Christ was born out of natural conception between God and Mary (Journal of Discourses, vol. 8, p. 115). However the Bible makes it clear that Mary was a virgin who was pregnant by the Holy Spirit when he overshadowed her (Luke 1:31-35). God did not have sex with Mary. If he did, Jesus Christ would not have been found without sin since he would have been born out of adultery thus not being able to save us from our sins through crucifixion. Mormons also believe Jesus Christ is a brother of Lucifer, and not God in the flesh. However the Bible makes it clear that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh thus being God’s only begotten son. Lucifer is a fallen angel known as Satan, and could not be a brother to Jesus Christ.
4. The Holy Bible
Mormons believe the Book of Mormon is the more correct book and important to Mormons as the Bible is. However it is written, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17. This teaching is heretic because it alludes that the Bible is not of God and the Book of Mormon is which is not true. Not only the Book is not more important than the Bible, it is erroneous.
Mormons believe that the gift of grace through Jesus Christ is for everyone no matter what they believe in from the second death. However the Bible makes it clear that only those who believe in Jesus Christ and does the will of the father will be saved (John 3:36, Matthew 7:21).
Mormons believe that Hell is a place where the disobedience will be taught the gospel and ask to repent. The Bible makes it clear that Hell is a place of torment for the anyone died in their sins without believing in Christ and repentance of sin.
7. “Prophet” Joseph Smith
Joseph Smith is a false prophet that the Bible warns us about. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves. – 2 Peter 2:1. Joseph Smith was also a Freemason, which is also not of God, until he died. Being a Freemason opens a person up to demons. So most like Joseph Smith did not have an encounter with an angel of God but Satan himself (2 Corinthians 11:14). The name Moroni is not in fact a Hebrew name but an Egyptian name. This is a problem because all of God’s angels have Hebrew names. This angel that talked to Joseph Smith strayed him away from the Bible. This is why it is written that we should test every spirit (1 John 4:1, Galatians 1:8).
