Another Jesus?

LDS Teaches…..

LDS have another Jesus….

“In bearing testimony of Jesus Christ, President Hinckley spoke of those outside the Church who say Latter-day Saints ‘do not believe in the traditional Christ.’ ‘No, I don’t. The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak.'”

(LDS Church News, week ending June 20, 1998, p.7)


“It is true that many of the Christian churches worship a different Jesus Christ than is worshipped by the Mormons or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

(LDS Seventy Bernard P. Brockbank, The Ensign, May 1977, p.26)


Mormons do not realize that some of their leaders know full well that the LDS Jesus is not the Jesus who Bible-believing Christians trust in for their salvation. Why else would McConkie also accuse Christians of abasing “themselves before the mythical throne of a mythical Christ” if he really thought we served the same Jesus? (Mormon Doctrine, pg.269).

The Bible Teaches……


     For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.                2 Cor. 11:4


   I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:             Galatians 1:6



false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.      Mark 13:22    

(beware for they get the majority of their prospects from Christian Churches)


The Jesus of Christianity is not the “literal” Son of God, or God was a fornicator…..Jesus’ blood is sufficient in cleansing “all” sin. Satan is not His brother, Satan is an angel and Jesus is not, he was created by Jesus Christ.


A Council of gods?


LDS Teaches…..


The universe is governed by a head god and his council. “The head God called together the Gods and sat in grand council to bring forth the world…In the beginning, the head of the Gods called a council of the gods; and they came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it” (Joseph Smith,

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith,



The Bible Teaches…..


If there is somebody else up there managing things, the all-knowing God who created all things in the heavens doesn’t know about it. Isaiah 42:5 defines Him as,

 God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:


In Isaiah 45:12 that same God says,

I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands

, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.


If God sent Joseph Smith to you, He sent him for this reason:

   And for this cause God shall send them “strong delusion”, that they should believe a lie:

                                                   2 Thes. 2:11


Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. Isaiah 43:10


God’s wives?


LDS Teaches…..


God has goddess wives. “This doctrine that there is a Mother in Heaven was affirmed in all plainness by the First Presidency of the Church” (Bruce R. McConkie, Apostle,

Mormon Doctrine 



The Bible Teaches…..


There is absolutely no mention of any wives of God.  There will be no marriage in Heaven;

Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.                                                      Matthew 22:29-30


Jesus, Married? With Children?


 LDS Teaches…..


Jesus was married. “Jesus was the bridegroom at the marriage of Cana of Galilee.

We say it was Jesus Christ which was married, to be brought into relation whereby we could see his seed.” (Orson Hyde, Apostle, Journal of Discourses, vol. 2, p.82).


The Bible Teaches…..


Jesus and His disciples were guests at Cana, read

John 2:1-12. This Mormon doctrine is generally not taught openly today. Marriage in a Mormon temple (called celestial marriage) is mandatory to progress to becoming a god in Mormonism. To fit the theology of Mormonism, the Mormon “Jesus” had to be married—-or He would only be a ministering servant to those in Mormonism’s heaven who have “celestial marriage.”


God Limited?

LDS Teaches…..


God is limited by a physical Body. “The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s” (Doctrine and Covenants, 130:22). “If God possesses a form, that form is of necessity of definite proportions, and therefore of limited extension and space. It is impossible for Him to occupy at one time more than one space of such limits” (James E. Talmage, Articles of Faith,



The Bible Teaches…..



one true God

is infinite. Any other “god” is a false god.


But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!     

2 Chron. 6:18




Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.   Psalm 139:7-8



Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.                                                      Jeremiah 23:24


That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:      Acts 17:27


The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good                                               Proverbs 15:3.


Many gods?


LDS Teaches…..


There are many gods: “In the beginning, the head of the Gods called a council of the gods; and they came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it….In all congregations when I have preached on the subject of the Deity, it has been the plurality of God’s.” (Joseph Smith, Founder and First Prophet, History of the Church

, vol. 6, pp. 308, 474)


The Bible Teaches…..


There was, is, and only will be only




Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.                 Isaiah 43:10


Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.                       Is 44:6-8


Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: Deut. 6:4-6


   Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.              James 2:19


For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.                             Isaiah 45:18


Jesus & Satan Brothers?


LDS Teaches…..


Jesus and Satan are brothers. “The appointment of Jesus to be the Savior of the world was contested by one of the sons of God—Lucifer. This spirit-brother of Jesus desperately tried to become the Savior of mankind” (Milton R. Hunter, First Council of Seventy, The Gospel Through the Ages,

p. 15).


The Bible Teaches…..



real Jesus is the only

  begotten Son of God. He is God’s son; (see John 1:1-14)


And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.                                              John 1:14


Satan was a

created angel

not a son of God;


How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!                                      Isaiah 14:12


Jesus created all things, and in Him the fullness of God dwells! (see Col. 1:15-20, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 1:1-13)


Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:                  Col. 1:15-16


Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.                                          Hebrews 1:4-6


Mary No Virgin?


LDS Teaches…..


Mary was not a virgin.  “Christ was begotten by a mortal Father in the same way that mortal men are begotten by mortal fathers….Christ was born into this world as the literal Son of this Holy Being; He was born in the same personal, real, and literal sense that any mortal son is being born to a mortal father” (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine

, pp. 547, 742).

The Bible Teaches…..


Jesus was begotten by the Holy Ghost. Mary was indeed a virgin.


     Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.             Matthew 1:18-23


And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel,

How shall this be, seeing I know not a man

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the

power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.            Luke 1:33-35


God Was A Man?

LDS Teaches…..


God himself was one as we are now, and is an exalted man….I say, if you were to see him today, you would see him like a man in form….like yourselves, in all the person, image, and very form as a man….He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on earth” (Joseph Smith, History of the Church

, vol. 6, p. 305)


The Bible Teaches…..


God was never a man. He created man! God has been God from all eternity to all eternity.


God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?                 Numbers 23:19


Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.       Psalm 41:13


Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.                           

Psalm 90:2


Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and

they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. Psalm 102:25-27



Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:22-23


Become gods?


LDS Teaches…..


Man may become gods. “Here then is eternal life…to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all gods have done before you….To inherit the same power, the same glory and the same exaltation, until you arrive at the station of God” (Joseph Smith, History of the Church

, vol. 6, p. 306)


The Bible Teaches…..


The great lie of Satan from the beginning was that man could become a god.


Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.            Genesis 3:1-5



How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.                                   Isaiah 14:12-15


The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:    Ezekiel 28:1-2
