This resource is for Christians who want to understand the development of Mormon theology and how Mormon beliefs are often self-contradictory. Mormonism: Changes, Contradictions, and Errors is a must-have resource for anyone who knows or witnesses to Mormons.
Do you want to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with Mormon relatives, friends, and acquaintances, and with those just getting interested in Mormonism? Then you will find this book useful as a tool for opening the door to such witnessing and to fruitful Bible discussion.
Mormons need the gospel message found in the Bible, but religious preconditioning blocks the way and prevents them from receiving it. Material such as that found in this book must first be presented to help members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints come out from under the authority of their local and Salt Lake City leadership and become more receptive to Bible teachings. This book will also be useful for prospective converts who are just getting interested in Mormonism.
Mormonism: Changes, Contradictions, and Errors compares quotes from Mormon leaders and the Book of Mormon itself to the Bible. The following is one of dozens of examples in chapter three:
Does God the Father have a body of flesh and bones?
Yes: "The Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's; the Son also..." (April 1843, Doctrine and Covenants 130:22)
No: "Holy, holy God; we believe that thou art God, and we believe that thou art holy, and that thou wast a spirit, and that thou art a spririt, and that thou wilt be a spirit foverever" (Alma 31:15)
From start to finish, this resource shows that Mormonism is not in sync with the Bible and is often self-contradictory to its own scriptures as well.
