The above photo statement shows us two things that make Mormonism a false teaching. As we can see Mormons face similar issues that Christians do, they are misunderstood that they hate people or they shove their religion down people’s throat but make no mistake Mormons do not worship the same God as Christians do.
First, Mormonism and Christianity are not compatible because they do not worship the same God nor do the view God and Jesus the same as Christianity does. God was never just a man that grew into a God and no they will never become God or like God like Mormonism teaches.
Christianity’s view is that we were not put on this earth so as to earn ourselves to be worthy to return to God in heaven.Christians know we are not and never will be worthy in the site of God on our own merit. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
We are put here on this earth to worship God, God alone, we follow Christ alone and the scriptures in the Holy Bible are the Holy word that is the breathed word of God and is sufficient for us alone.
Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith as this rightly points out but they rely on the Book of Mormons that was deciphered by Smith.
Christians would view the book of Mormons as a adding to the words of God and that is expressly forbidden. Genesis 3:1-3 Satan temps Eve and adds to the words of God thus killing all mankind as Adam sins against God by believing Satan’s words. Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Revelation 22:18-19 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.
As Christians we need to pray for our brother and sister that are in the Mormon faith, these are good people that hold true to moral and ethical codes. We cannot agree that we are both Christians because we follow the teachings and understandings of a different God, we can both be wrong but we cannot both be right.
When we see and have conversations with our Mormon friends we need to understand them, know them and pray for them. Show them they do not worship the same God as in the Holy Bible and aid them to understanding why Christianity is different from Mormonism. 1 Peter 3:15
