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.
Yesterday, 1-16-01, I came across an old email that I apparently wanted to publish but didn't get around to it. It was a response to a Mormon male. In my first email response I asked him if he believed that he would one day become a god with his own planet. He told me yes he did believe that--I know that sounds incredible but that is what Mormon males are taught (for more info on their tenets go to http://www.jesus-is-lord.com/cults.htm#mormon.. Here is my second response to the man...
You said, "In answer to your question, I do believe I have the opportunity to become a god of my own worlds having my own spirit children."
Thank you for answering my question. 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 and He will not share His glory with another. The Bible talks a lot about false prophets...Joseph Smith--your leader and founder--was a false prophet. If you remain deceived it is because you choose to. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God 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--Revelation 22:18 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:
22:19 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.
Proverbs 30:6 ADD thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Joseph Smith added to the Bible, he is a liar and he has lied to you. Why do you believe Joseph Smith--because a man told you [that] you should? The Bible says yea, let God be true and EVERY man a liar. Concerning the Bible, it was not written by men--2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that NO prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
1:21 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.
The cult of Mormonism adds to the Bible. Specifically the Book of Mormon written by false prophet Joseph Smith. He and his followers have made merchandise out of you, my friend. 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.
You question the Bible's veracity. Do you honestly believe that God does not have the power to preserve His word from a wicked generation?Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, THOU SHALT PRESERVE THEM FROM THIS GENERATION FOR EVER.
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!1 Peter 1:24 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.
[No one has to be fooled by false prophets. God has left us a written record of His word. All we have to do is take heed.]
It is not [by] accident [that] you've written to me. The Lord is being merciful to you and attempting to draw you to Himself. I'm not asking you to join any group, I'm telling you to read the Bible for yourself. Take off the filthy glasses of paganistic mormonism and read with clear eyeballs and you will see. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God. "Christ in you, the hope of glory". Abstaining from tobacco and caffeine will not commend you to God. The only way you will please Him is to take Him at His word--repent of your sins, believe that Jesus died for you, that He rose from the dead. Make Jesus the Lord of your life and experience FREEDOM! Walk with Him, enjoy Him and let Him enjoy you. Jesus said, "Sanctify them with thy truth, THY WORD IS TRUTH."
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 begining and end of salvation, the author and finisher, the first and the last, the Alpha and the Omega. You won't make it in without Him. Another name for the Jesus is the Word. 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. You need to seek God and meditate on these things a long time because your eternity rests on you obeying the TRUTH.
for Jesus' sake,
...I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them,
neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee,
and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words,
nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
Ezekiel 2:4, 6
