BE WARE OF FALSE CHRISTS – III
( The Mormon Jesus !!)
New Doctrines, new revelation, and new gospels are springing up almost daily, and it is going to get much worse. There are many people who are always eager and ready to accept anything because it is new. They are eager to be the first to espouse a new idea. Yes, we should have no fear the new provided it has passed under the X ray ( the test of the word of God) and has been proved to be true in the light of the Scripture. Every person is admonished to ” prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” 1st Thessalonians 5:21.
The Bible clearly warns that in the last days strange doctrines will come forth introducing another Jesus , another Spirit and another gospel! After Paul preached the Gospel to the Galatians and departed to other cities certain false teachers known as the Judiazers came and declared two main errors. First they said that Paul was not the true apostle because he was not chosen of the Lord, as the other apostles were and therefore he did not have the same authority as did the others. Secondly they taught that it is alright to believe in the finished work of Christ for salvation but that is not enough, and that they need to keep the law in order to stay saved.
In order to correct this error of the Jewish proselytes that came in privily to spy and to destroy the faith of these new believers The apostle Paul wrote to the churches of Galatia; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another: but there be some that trouble you, and pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you, let him be accursed…….” Nothing has changed then,!! The false Gospel ( and so the false Christ) that Joseph Smith (the founder of the cult) and his followers has the same traits in common with the deception hurled upon the Churches of Galatia, is being perpetrated in different labels, one of which is the gospel of the Mormon church.
2.The Jesus of the Mormons: Of all the major cults in the melting pot of religions called American, none is more subtle and dangerous to the unwary soul than The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter day Saints, the official name for Mormonism. When a Mormon tells you ” I believe Jesus did for my sins too” he is not talking about the Biblical Jesus, but the Mormon Jesus. The Jesus of The Bible and the “Mormon Jesus” are two different beings. This cult carries one of the cleverest counterfeits of the true gospel ever devised to ensnare the souls of men and women.
Who Is This Jesus of The Mormons? The Mormons believe that God The Father a polygamist, and He is the literal father of every person on earth through physical intercourse with his many wives. The Jesus of the Mormons is one of the sons of God (one of millions even Billions). Their Jesus was Physically conceived son of God , and that God had physical intercourse with Mary to bring forth the “Mormon Jesus” who needed a physical body to be a god. The “Mormon Jesus” is the spirit- brother of every man, He is one of the endless number of gods and is being separate from the Heavenly Father. the Mormon gospel teaches that Jesus and Satan are brothers. Mormons teach that Jesus was a polygamist and lived with the two Marys and Martha.
Mormonism teaches that men can become gods, and that Sin was part of God’s plan, that without it mankind could not progress to become like God, and that salvation is a combination of faith and works, and that there is salvation only in Mormon church and no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith. They declare that; “he that confesseth not the Jesus has come in the flesh and sent Joseph Smith with the fullness of the Gospel to this generation , is not of God, but its anti-Christ.” Yes, no salvation if you deny Joseph Smith!!
The Mormon gospel teaches that even after death everyone has an opportunity to respond to the gospel. Heaven has three levels and those who attain the highest level become gods, ruling and populating their own universe. Although Mormons pronounce the curse of damnation upon all who are not Latter Day Saints, yet they teach there is no Hell.
Dear Friends, The Mormons don’t believe in The Christian God. They believe in some sort of pagan god that the heathen worship. It is the difference between the darkest night and the brightest day. Mormonism is darkness, along with many other religious systems of these last days.

The Bible reveals two ways which people are following to get into heaven. One way, the true way, is God’s way. God’s way into heaven is the way of peace and truth and righteousness. It is the only way approved of God. This way centers in the Lord Jesus Christ who said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). The Bible declares that there is another way. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).
There are so many popular ways today filled with lost multitudes all over the land, such as the way of morality, the way of respectability, the way of religion, the way of churchianity, the way of baptism, the way of christening, the way of confirmation, the way of penance, the way of confession, the way of “doing the best I can”, the way of self, the way of education, the way of philosophy, the way of false isms and cults that crowd the street. Little wonder then when we speak to people about the way of salvation, that so many have asked, “How can I know which is the true way? There are so many different ideas and so many religions.”
But there is ONE difference between God’s way of salvation and man’s way, and that difference is found in a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. You will notice that man leaves Christ out of the center of his way. You will discover that the modern false cults and isms demote Christ to a mere man and add something to what He has already done for your salvation and mine. We become children of God through a supernatural birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Jesus also said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7)
