Testing the Book of Mormon



Here is a copy of a pamphlet I received in the mail the other day. I thought I would share it with everyone. You can get your own and other reading material through Utah Lighthouse Ministry. Their information is on this pamphlet.

Does the Book of Mormon witness for Jesus Christ?

No.
The Mormons have their own Jesus Christ. Their own prophet has even stated this. I didn't grow up believing that the two Jesus' were the same.
There are many mistakes in the Book of Mormon that does not go side-by-side with the Bible.
Here are a couple:
1.Jesus speaks of His church in future tense(Matt.16:18,Acts 2:47)
in the bible. The BOM states that the Christian church was established as early as 147 b.c.(Mosiah 18:17)
2. The bible states that Jesus was born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). The BOM states that Jesus was born in Jerusalem (Alma 7:10).
The BOM does speak well of Jesus, but it isn't the Christian Jesus. There is so much information and I am trying to cover as much as possible. I hope to cover this subject in more detail later.

About Me

I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.
2.I believe the Bible to be the Holy Inspired word of God with full truth and righteousness. No other writing is.
3.I believe that the work of the Lord comes first. Before any temporal thing or person.
4.I believe that grace is a gift and Christ gives that gift freely to all who believe.
5.I believe that the beauty of a woman is contained inside of her and not by what she looks like on the outside.
6.I believe that marriage is sacred and represents the Godhead on earth; two are one just as three are one.
7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
9.I believe that the Aaronic, Levitical, and Melchizedek priesthoods are abolished and Christs Holy Priesthood whom Christ is the "Great High Priest" is eternal.
10.I believe that every believer is a priest in the "Priesthood of Believers".
11.I believe that when two are one, nobody is to separate the one.
12.I believe that Christ is the only way to heaven.
13.I believe that our bodies are temples, not man made buildings.
14.I believe that liars make fools out of others and the liar hates the fool.
15.I believe that all believers are in authority to preach the gospel.
16.I believe that the word 'organization' to describe Christs body is evil and has no place with God.
17.I believe the Americas are not the land of Zion and Christ will return to His origonal land-Israel in the Middle East.
18.I believe that God has set out correct ways of worshiping Him, not man.
19.I believe in holding to the truths of the Bible and not mans understanding of it.
20.I believe that the world is full of evil and Satan can easily gain control over the minds of those who do not profess Christ of the Bible to be their only Messiah.
21.I believe that Saints are those who know the real Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks of; not the jesus of a cult.
