Romans 1:22-23 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.
The Mormons do offer the King James Bible on their commercials so I'm sure you'll have no objections to me quoting from it...does the God of the Bible say that there are many gods?Isaiah 43:10 ...before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
Isaiah 44:6 ...I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
Isaiah 44:8 ...Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me...
Isaiah 45:6 ...there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
Isaiah 45:21 ...there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
Isaiah 46:9 ...I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
Deuteronomy 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
The God of the Bible emphatically says that there is ONLY ONE GOD (Deuteronomy 6:4) and He will not share His glory with another (Isaiah 42:8). The Bible talks a lot about false prophets... Joseph Smith--leader and founder of the Mormons in 1830--was a false prophet. If you remain deceived it is because you choose to. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven and no ceremonies and fairy tales will save your soul.
As for the Book of Mormon, God gives some stern warnings for those who would add to His word or take away from it..."For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." -Revelation 22:18,19
"ADD thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." -Proverb 30:6
Joseph Smith added to the Bible; thus, he is a liar and is burning in Hell today. The Bible says yea, let God be true and EVERY man a liar. Concerning the Bible, it was not written by men--"Knowing this first, that NO prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were MOVED by the Holy Ghost." -2nd Peter 1:20,21
The cult of Mormonism adds to the Bible. Specifically the Book of Mormon, written by false prophet Joseph Smith. He and Mormon leaders have made merchandise out of you if you're a Mormon. They've sold you a bill of goods. You think you have good things, but you don't realize you have arsenic. All your seers and prophets and Journal of Discourses, baptisms for the dead, signs, symbols, special underwear, eternal marriage, etc... ALL contradict the word of God.
Many people today question the Bible's veracity. Do you honestly believe that God does not have the power to preserve His Word from a wicked generation?"The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, THOU SHALT PRESERVE THEM FROM THIS GENERATION FOR EVER." -Psalm 12:6,7
Know ye not that the word of God endureth forever? Where do you think the word of God was before false prophet Joseph Smith came along? Hidden? Nay, it cannot be destroyed!"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 1:25 But THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURETH FOR EVER. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." -1st Peter 1:24
No one has to be fooled by false prophets. God has left us the Written Record of His Word. All we have to do is take heed.
Ask the Lord to give you eyes that see, and ears that hear, and a heart that understands that you may be converted. That Mormon mumbo-jumbo will only take you to Hell on a greased pole. Jesus Christ is the Beginning and End of salvation, the Author and Finisher, the First and the Last, the Alpha and the Omega. You won't make it into Heaven without Him. Another name for the Jesus is the Word of God (Revelation 19:13). You must believe His Word or you won't make it in. There is ONLY ONE God and there is ONLY ONE way to be reconciled to God--His name is Jesus. Jesus is NOT your elder brother, He is the Creator of the universe--there's no other God beside Him (Isaiah 43:10-12). You need to seek God and meditate on these things a long time because your eternity rests on you obeying the TRUTH.
