He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did" (LDS History of the Church, Vol. 6, p. 305). "The Father has promised us that through our faithfulness we shall be blessed with the fullness of his kingdom. Should we baptize by sprinkling or baptize by immersion?

The term "Mormon" is an informal nickname for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Though there is no singular Protestant method of exegesis, they all have as their supposed goal to “let the Scripture speak for itself.” Of course no one claiming to be Christian could be against what the Scripture would “say” if it were indeed “speaking for itself” through these methods. With the exception of Anglicans(Episcopalians) and quite possibly Lutherans, most Protestants do not believe that one needs to pray to Saints, Mary or Angels.

What Mormons haven’t quite put together is that they could dump all of this nonsense, go straight for Jesus and have a meaningful relationship with Him without the hassle of a religious system that basically enslaves them. Lutheran jurists published scores of treatises on marriage law, affirming and embellishing the new Lutheran theology of marriage. As I have said in just about every post, Christianity does not claim (and never claimed) to be a different religion with some twisted differences within the original teaching.

Orthodoxy, however, offers an unbroken twenty-century history of wonderworkers, miracles and gifts far surpassing anything the Mormons can adduce. Their schism lies in disputes over who would succeed Muhammad as leader of the faithful after his death in 632. The council of Nicea was an attempt to check this doctrinal waywardness, but, according to the Mormons, still a human and flawed attempt nonetheless. Often founded by individual pastors, they have little affiliation with historic denominations. [306] The Second Great Awakening, a period of religious revival that occurred in the United States during the early 1800s, saw the development of a number of unrelated churches.

Scripture states the overcomers will always be sons: He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my SON. (Rev 21:7) Joseph Smith Jr. had a wild imagination to come up with the following story about redemption. Ultimately, such things are not necessary for any religion, Christian or non-Christian. Consider what denominationalism says about Jesus. But of all the religions on earth, members of the Jewish religion have had to live among Christians intent on converting them for two thousand years, yet only a small percentage of Jews have ever converted.

Historically, there is a loose relationship between Mormonism and Christianity, in so much as Joseph Smith derived some portions of his teachings from Christian documents. Only ordinances for salvation are performed on behalf of deceased persons. The familial organization of Mormon society countered this society by incorporating its members into a resolutely patriarchal structure that seemed not only to restore but to extend and strengthen patriarchal authority and the scope and power of kinship by grounding it in Hebraic models drawn from the Old Testament and reinforced by the ongoing revelations to the Mormon prophet.

Distinction: Nonconformist, Puritanical, primitive Christian group without creeds, sacraments, or paid clergy, which is opposed to racism, sexism, war, and religious intolerance. They do not believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity, but simply a force—the "unseen power" from God. The Mormon prophets historically have openly ridiculed those of us who believe in the God, Jesus and Holy Spirit as the Bible reveals. Both of us love the Lord, and both of us have considerable education in Christian doctrine.

Salvation (forgiveness of sins) is not by works (Eph. 2:8; Rom. 4:5; Gal. 2:21) "As these sins are the result of individual acts it is just that forgiveness for them should be conditioned on individual compliance with prescribed requirements -- 'obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.'" (Articles of Faith p. 79) The inspired inerrant word of God (2 Tim. 3:16). The two basic reasons for the names of different denominations in churches are convenience and disagreements, (where a person will leave that congregation and start another church with his adherents.)

He immediately withdrew to a wooded area near his home to pray for wisdom and it was at this point that he recalls having a vision of a pillar of light coming down from heaven and God the Father and Jesus his Son standing above him in the air. You can read it online, or print it out and read it. It is a mixture of Jewish and rationalistic teaching. This is documented in Inventing Mormonism. He later claimed that he received severe persecution during his early years for stating he had this vision yet there is no published mention of this vision by either Mormons or non-Mormons until 1840.
