Anonymous said: As I read through your questions, I find a few things that you are extremely uneducated on. In one question, you said the Bible was translated very correctly. Actually that is false. Throughout much of the Old Testament, there are hundreds of errors in the translation. So the Bible is not error free. In fact, it is far from it. In the original Hebrew script, there are hundreds of similarities between the Gospel of our fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the Mormon church.

The guy in this video does a much better job of articulating answers to your concerns than I could ever do to save my life.

Now that we established the accuracy of the Bible, can we talk about some of the many 4,000 changes to the Book of Mormon?

Oh, anon trust me I studied the scriptures with an open heart with a yearning that it could be true. But by the power of the Holy Spirit, God told me that the Book of Mormon was not of God but of the devil.

The problem with the way your church advocates praying about whether the BoM is true or not is very subjective. And ultimately they’re saying “it is true regardless of you having received the burning-in-the-bosom or not and if you have not yet received it you weren’t being sincere”

You may have a strong testimony but I have a testimony of God himself, of who He is and what the truth is.

I pray that you’ll come to know the truth too, and it’s not in the Mormon Church.

Anonymous said: Why Mormonism? Why not Catholicism or Jehovah's Witnesses or any of the other Christian denominations with their own little quirks? Why is it the Mormon faith you've set out to refute? I'm not Mormon, for what it's worth; I'm an atheist and an impartial observer.

Why Mormonism? Why Mormonism?

Because of the hateful attacks Joseph Smith brought towards the Christian church since the early days of the Mormonism.

"Behold there are save two churches only; the one is the Church of the Lamb of God and the other is the church of the devil; wherefore whoso belongeth not to the church of the lamb of God belongeth to that great church; which is the mother of abominations; and she is the whore of all the earth.” (The Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 14:10)

Nothing less than a complete apostasy from the Christian religion would warrant the establishment of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.” (Documentary History of the Church, Introduction, xl)

I was answered that Imust join none of them (Christian Churches), for they were all wrong…that all their creeds were an abomination in His sight" (Joseph Smith History 1:19).

"…orthodox Christian views of God are Pagan rather than Christian." (Mormon Doctrine of Deity by B.H. Roberts, p.116)

"…the God whom the ‘Christians’ worship is a being of their own creation…" (Apostle Charles W. Penrose, JD 23:243)

"The Christian world, so called, are heathens as to their knowledge of the salvation of God." (Brigham Young, JD 8:171)

"We may very properly say that the sectarian world do not know anything correctly, so far as pertains to salvation. Ask them where heaven is?- where they are going to when they die?-where Paradise is! -and there is not a priest in the world that can answer your questions. Ask them what kind of a being our Heavenly Father is, and they cannot tell you so much as Balaam’s ass told him. They are more ignorant than children." (Brigham Young, JD 5:229).

"The Christian world, I discovered, was like the captain and crew of a vessel on the ocean without a compass, and tossed to and fro whithersoever the wind listed to blow them. When the light came to me, I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness." (Brigham Young, JD 5:73).

"What! Are Christians ignorant? Yes, as ignorant of the things of God as the brute best." (John Taylor, JD 13:225)

"What does the Christian world know about God? Nothing…Why so far as the things of God are concerned, they are the veriest fools; they know neither God nor the things of God." (John Taylor, JI) 13:225)

"Believers in the doctrines of modern Christendom will reap damnation to their souls (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p.177)

"I have learned for myself that Presbyterianism is not true." (Joseph Smith, DHC 1:6)

"I spoke of the impropriety of turning away from the truth, and going after a people so destitute of righteousness as the Methodists." (Joseph Smith, DHC 2:319)

"…brother Joseph B. Nobles once told a Methodist priest, after hearing him describe his god, that the god they worshiped was the "Mormon’s" Devil-a being without a body, whereas our God has a body, parts and passions." (Brigham Young, JD 5:331)

"…brother Heber C. Kimball was beset by a number of Baptist priests who had been attending a conference. He read them all down out of the New Testament….With regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world." (Brigham Young, JD 8:199).

"The Roman Catholic, Greek, and Protestant church, is the great corrupt, ecclesiastical power, represented by great Babylon…." (Orson Pratt, Orson PrattWritings of an Apostle,"Divine Authenticity," no.6, p.84).

"…all the priests who adhere to the sectarian religions of the day with all their followers, without one exception, receive their portion with the devil and his angels." (The Elders Journal, Joseph Smith Jr., editor, vol.1, no.4, p.60)

"And any person who shall be so wicked as to receive a holy ordinance of the gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent of the unholy and impious act." (Orson Pratt, OP-WA, "The Kingdom of God," no.2, p.6)

"…all other churches are entirely destitute of all authority from God; and any person who recieves baptism or the Lord’s supper from their hands will highly offend God, for he looks upon them as the most corrupt people." (Orson Pratt, The Seer, pg. 255)

…the great apostate church as the anti-christ…This great antichrist…is the church of the devil.” (Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine p.40)

"Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the "whore of Babylon" whom the lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness." (Pratt, The Seer, p.255)

"Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth." (Brigham Young, JD 6:176)

"Evil spirits control much of the so-called religious worship in the world; for instance, the great creeds of Christendom were formulated so as to conform to their whispered promptings." (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p.246)

"After the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, there were only two churches upon the earth. They were known respectively as the Church of the Lamb of God and Babylon. The various organizations which are called churches throughout Christiandom, though differing in their creeds and organizations, have one common orgin. They belong to Babylon." (George Q. Cannon, Gospel Truth, p.324)

Anonymous said: Nobody is trying to convert you. No one wants you to become LDS. I don't mean that in a rude way. I mean it as it's YOUR decision. Nobody is making any "deals" with you. Your primary goal of this blog is just to bible bash. Sure you'll find some others who will give in, and participate; but most of us here just wish that you'd keep your opinions apart from the LDS/ mormon tags, where we go to see things that make us happy... not your negativity. thank you.

Then tell the Missionaries to stop knocking on my door.

I believe God to be very merciful and even in the end, if I've chosen wrong, I believe I've lived a life God will be proud of. So in the end, what else matters. I'm thankful to you for being so strong in your beliefs to want to share them with others. I want everyone to find happiness and gain a true knowledge of Jesus Christ as well. Thank you for being passionate about your beliefs:)

Hello, anon :)

Thank for your kind response, as it is very rare that I get one of this kind. I have to ask you though, when you meant by you stopped questioning Mormonism? Did you stop questioning it after you came to the realization that because you grew up with it/it’s what you believe all your life and because of that you concluded it was the truth? 

Please message me off anonymous, I guarantee that our conversation will be confidential! As it is much easier for us to respond to each other.

Take care, LDS anon.

Agree.

Dear Mormons,

Instead of accusing me of hate and stuffing my inbox full of messages like how I’m anti-Mormon, bigoted and hate-driven, how about you send me facts—backing up your objections to my statements using the Book of Mormon and other official LDS material to prove me otherwise.


If you can provide me hard evidence and facts to prove me wrong, I will crawl on my hands and knees from Vancouver, British Columbia to Salt Lake City. I will personally apologize to all the General Authorities for blaspheming them, cry at the feet of Thomas S. Monson begging for mercy and become LDS.


Can I make a deal?
