Understanding Mormonism


Since Glenn Beck, a Mormon, spoke recently at Liberty University, it seemed especially appropriate to post this now. I had most of this ready in a draft for a while now. Denny Burk commented on Liberty allowing Beck to speak here.

James White commented also this morning here, along with comments on Ergun Caner, hypocrisy and Liberty University.

It seems that Liberty University puts conservative politics and social values as more important than the doctrines of the gospel and historic Christianity, and making it clear that Mormonism is a false religion, polytheism, and a cult.

Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries analyzes the religion of Mormonism, otherwise known as “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”. Mormonism is not Christianity at all; it is polytheism – thousands, even millions of gods exist in Mormon theology. It is not a Monotheistic religion. One of the most interesting comments that Dr. White has made is, in my own words, something like, “Islam has more in common with Christianity, in the doctrine of God, than Mormonism.” I knew this many years ago before even knowing about Dr. White.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
