LDS FAQ

 
  1. Are Mormons Christians? No. The beliefs of Mormonism and Christianity are completely opposite of one another. Recently the LDS Church has begun to persuade the world to label them as “Christian” so they can be accepted as mainstream. However, this can’t be done once a person really understands what Mormonism teaches. Ironically, LDS General Authorities acknowledge that the fundamental teachings of Mormonism and historical Christianity are quite different.
 
  1. Is the Jesus of Christianity the same Jesus of Mormonism? No. The Bible warns of “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians 11:4) that is false. The Mormon Jesus once defined by Mormon doctrines and teachings then compared side-by-side with the Christian fundamental teachings of Jesus are complete opposites. As stated in earlier, LDS General Authorities acknowledge that the Jesus of Mormonism compared with the Jesus of Christianity is “different”. If one does not have the correct Jesus as their Savior, then that person’s soul is eternally lost. It’s paramount that one has the correct Jesus.
 
  1. Is there more than one God? No. The Bible is clear that there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-12). Joseph Smith taught that the plurality of gods. This is called polytheism – the belief in more than one god. Christianity is monotheistic – the belief in only one God.
 
  1. Do Christians believe in revelation? Yes. Mormons are critical of Christians in thinking that we don’t believe in revelation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Christianity is all about revelation and we point to the Bible as evidence of that fact. We have prophecies in the Old Testament that relate to the return of Christ and beyond that haven’t been fulfilled yet. We have the book of Revelation which is the last book within the Bible that has yet to come to pass. We also believe that God through His Holy Spirit speaks to His people today in all matters. We don’t limit an all-powerful God. What God will not do is lie (Hebrews 6:18) by contradicting what He has already said before. We know that He has given us His word – the Bible – and He is going to be truthful and forthcoming in His completed word to His people in His statutes.
 
  1. Is the Bible reliable and trustworthy? Yes. Despite the criticism of the Mormon Church regarding the Bible, Christianity has stood firm on the teachings of the completed and full Word of God as given to us in the Bible. The claims of Mormonism against the Bible are easily refuted once a person takes a serious look at the origins and claims of the Bible. We believe the Bible is the Word of God and every word in it is inspired by the Holy Ghost and is completely trustworthy (2 Timothy 3:16).
 
  1. Am I saved by my works (good deeds)? No. The Bible is clear that it is through faith in Christ and that alone which brings the gift of eternal life to the believer (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 6:47). Good works is the natural result that will follow a saving faith in Christ. Mankind sees our works. God sees our hearts (what we believe).
