Mormonism's Distorted View Of The Cross

  • Discussion:
           -One blasphemous aspect of Mormonism is the idea that there are sins so heinous that not even the shed blood of Jesus Christ has sufficient power to make atonement for the people who commit them. Consider this excerpt from Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, page n82:

           "But man may commit certain grievous sins — according to his light and knowledge - that will place him beyond the reach of the atoning blood of Christ. If then he would be saved he must make sacrifice of his own life to atone — so far as in his power lies — for that sin, for the blood of Christ alone under certain circumstances will not avail.

           MURDERERS AND THE ATONEMENT. Do you believe this doctrine? If not, then I do say you do not believe in the true doctrine of the atonement of Christ. This is the doctrine you are pleased to call the "blood atonement of Brighamism." This is the doctrine of Christ our Redeemer, who died for us. This is the doctrine of Joseph Smith, and I accept it."

  1. You have to remember why there is no manuscript evidence for Smith's version: He got it by direct revelation from God (actually from his little pink head)

    1. The rapid growth of the Latter Day Saints church since its inception in the 1830's by Joseph Smith should prove alarming to any Christian who has discernment.

      According to the Mormon Church's reported membership records, it had over sixteen million members as of December 31, 2017. That amounts to a world religion.

      As to how anybody can be deceived by Mormon propaganda, is far beyond me. LDS teaching is absolutely heretical in comparison to the doctrines of historic Christianity and their history has no support in ancient artifacts.

  2. The rapid growth is due mostly to births in the LDS, and recruits from 3rd world countries. Of course it is a world religion. So is the Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, etc.

    People who are deceived into the LDS are people who are unfamiliar with real Christian doctrine. There is a lot of "self" in their theology, so it appeals to ego.
