Anyone Know About Mormons

Does anyone know about Mormon beliefs? I was told as a child that they didn't believe in hell, that you either went to heaven or the grave was your "hell."

Upon physical death, your spirit leaves the body and enters the spirit world where it dwells in paradise or prison. Those in paradise were faithful and obediant on earth. Those in prison were not or were never given the chance to hear of Christ. Therefore, people from paradise visit prison and act as missionaries to teach those in prison, allowing them to accept or reject the gospel. This continues until resurrection and final judgement. Everyone is resurrected, no matter what. Judgement determines which level of glory you will dwell in for eternity. There are 3 degrees: Celestial (highest), Terrestrial, and Telestial. There is also an outer darkness which is reserved for Satan and the sons of perdition.

According to the Book of Abraham, one day on Kolob is equal to a thousand years on Earth - so I'm guessing it's somewhere around New Jersey.
---kathr4453 on 8/21/08


Sheet music from the Mormon Tabernacle choir:

If You Could Hie to KOLOB

If you could hie to Kolob in the twinkling of an eye,
And then continue onward with the speed of light to fly,
D'ye think that you could ever, through all eternity,
Find out the generation where Gods began to be?

This is just the first verse. I really think this 4 th verse here is very telling.....where GODS began to be???? YIKES!!!


And that is the issue. YOU are not gods who began to be, entering into the flesh of man.
Just as those who were destroyed in the FLOOD..when possibly the sons of GodAngels? interacted with mankindor depraved man marrying into the line of Seth/ whatever your take...God destroyed.
---kathr4453 on 8/20/08


***Kath - I understand the point you are trying to make but I still believe that these particular scriptures (POGP) are indeed an actual lesson on the stars.***

Scripture isn't about astrology and lessons about stars.


Form your own doctrine:
Mormonism is an outer-space-oriented religion. One of our Scriptures state as far it has been translated correctly:

"And thus there shall be the reckoning of the time of one planet above another, until thou come nigh unto Kolob, which Kolob is after the reckoning of the Lord's time, which Kolob is set nigh unto the throne of God, to govern all those planets which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest."

---kathr4453 on 8/20/08


Kath - I understand the point you are trying to make but I still believe that these particular scriptures (POGP) are indeed an actual lesson on the stars.

I have been to thousands of Sacrament, Sunday school and various other meetings and can say with all honesty that I have never heard Kolob mentioned. It really isn't a big deal.
---Tammy2 on 8/19/08




Tammy,

1 Chronicles 27:23
But David took not the number of them from twenty years old and under: because the LORD had said he would increase Israel like to the stars of the heavens.

LIKE TO is not the actual stars. Here is a difference.

God said to Abraham:
Genesis 22:17
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore, and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies,

AS...is in comparison....not the actual.

WHO are Abraham's seed?

Those who are Christ's ARE Abraham's seed....by FAITH...not by being some spirit or soul baby waiting to enter the flesh of man.
---kathr4453 on 8/19/08


The scripture quoted by Kath is correct. I don't see where it claims that Kolob is the birthplace of Jesus. I also admit that I miss the point (assuming there is one) regarding the comparison to the scripture in Exodus.

Pierre - Mormons do not believe the Bible is superior to the Bible, though we do believe it is more correctly translated. A friend and I once compared scriptures on three different translations of the Bible - while many were essentially the same, there were PLENTY that carried completely different meanings! Try it sometime and see for yourself.
---Tammy2 on 8/15/08


Taken from the Mormons Pearl....


Quote:
And I saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God, and there were many great ones which were near unto it,

And the Lord said unto me: These are the governing ones, and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me, for I am the Lord thy God: I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order as that upon which thou standest.

Unquote




The Bible says:

Exodus 32:13
Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, ......
---kathr4453 on 8/15/08


The TRUTH about Kolob (again). Mormons have additional scriptures through modern revelation. The Pearl of Great Price is one of those books. In it there is a book of Abraham. In that book Abraham is essentially given an astronomy lesson. He is told that the greatest star is called "Kolob" and that it is nearest to God. We DO NOT believe that Kolob is the birthplace of Jesus or that it is the planet where our God lives or that we came from there - that's just another tactic of those who like to distort the truth. The existence of the STAR, Kolob is not really significant to any of our beliefs!
---Tammy2 on 8/14/08


Mormons believe Jesus came from the Star KOLOB, and they are/were little spirit babies from KOLOB waiting to enter into the earthly body taking possession of it.

Many Mormon beliefs came from Calvinism. I'm not saying Calvinism teaches this. Joseph Smith grew up in the NE and exposed to Calvinism, and the idea of the pre-existent "elect" as Calvinism teaches, started a knock off religion.

The Question I have...do Calvinists actually believe THEY preexist (ed)...and are little spirit babies for-ordained to enter a body preselected to salvation?

---kathr4453 on 8/14/08




Mormons believe:
That the Bible is the Word of God only as far as it is translated correctly. They consider the Book of Mormons superioe to the Bible, because the words are "pure"
That man preexisted with God as an immortal soul before being created. Hence the main reason for the creation was to provide bodies for the souls. TBC
---Pierr7958 on 8/13/08


I would like to fill in the gaps that Andrea neglected to mention. First, she quoted the first quarter of verse 18 in the D & C and left out 3/4 of it and there was nothing from 19-21 and they count for a lot. Most importantly she didn't mention what D & C 128:17 says (it's what Joseph Smith was referring to.) I know most of you don't believe that these scriptures are inspired but I believe it's necessary to expose the half truths our faith that are repeatedly offered by those like Andrea.
---Tammy on 9/18/07


D & C 128:17 is a statement made in regard to baptism for the dead - in verse 16 he had quoted from the scripture in I Cor 15:29 - in which Paul asks why the Corinthians perform baptism for the dead if they no longer believe in the ressurrection. Note that he doesn't tell them that the practice is wrong. (sorry, "Christians" - he doesn't). cont...
---Tammy on 9/18/07


In verse 17, Joseph Smith quotes Malachi 4:5 & 6 - those are the verses he is translating in verse 18. I understand that you don't believe these scriptures are inspired but you should at least know the context by which they are spoken.
---Tammy on 9/18/07


As a former missionary of Jesus Christ, it never ceases to amaze me what fantasies people often dream up in their minds and profess it as truths.
ashley

no I suspect that no fantasy surprises you - you believe all of the LDSs

I stick with quoting Joseph Smith - its wild beyond fables
---Andrea on 9/18/07


As a former missionary of Jesus Christ, it never ceases to amaze me what fantasies people often dream up in their minds and profess it as truths. andrea. do you want to know why millions of people join the church around the world every year. Because they have read the bible, not listened to babblings of man inventing doctrines. When they hear the gospel, it harmonizes with what they read in the bible and they pray for the Holy Ghost to answer their prayer in truth. it is that simple.

D & C 128: 18, 21
18 I might have rendered a plainer translation to this, but it is sufficiently plain to suit my purpose as it stands. It is sufficient to know, in this case, that the earth will be smitten with a curse unless there is a welding clink of some kind or other between the fathers and the children, upon some subject or otherand behold what is that subject? It is the baptism for the dead.

this is a small sample of the inspired Doctrine and covenants

I started listening to mormon missionaries but I saw this question and now I think you are all liars.

Joseph Smith said that he was translating ancient writings of
Abraham (written by Abraham's own hand) from the Egyptian, even going
so far as to make an Egyptian grammar and alphabet through inspiration
to help him with the task. Subsequent Egyptologists have translated
the texts and found that they have nothing to do with Abraham.

You have now returned to mormonism .. how many times?
You are a serial leaver and returner.
---alan_of_UK on 6/7/07


Candice, congratulations. I am happy for you and your daughter. You have my full support in any way you need it, the same as everyone else I come into contact with. Everyone has the freedom to choose in life what makes them happy. Jesus said love thy neighbor as thyself. If we do that, why is there contention and hatred shown towards others. Are we not all trying to learn truth and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? We are not perfect yet, but we are taking small baby steps to glory.

I retract my statement I made over a year ago after leaving the church, I found out they defentily do have a Sunday School class using all the books, Bible,Bom ,D&C Pearl of Great price.

Don't believe everything that you were taught as a child. Besides, anyone with a little common sense knows that there is a heaven then there has got to be hell and anyone with a little commom sense knows that there is a God so therefore there is a Devil and this Devil is also ruining people's lives here and certainly throughout all eternity.
---catherine on 6/6/07


Ashley, mormon apologists have a full time job. Regardless if you're getting paid or not for all of this damage control; your 'trying' isn't worth a hoot. Sinners are saved by Jesus Christ. Temple works, callings, will not get you to heaven. Neither do secret names, or handshakes.
Christians also have missionaries that witness to mormon missionaries.
Because Jesus Christ is written over your church doors, doesn't change the fact that your church says Jesus is the brother of Lucifer.
---Melanie on 6/6/07


this blog prompted me to ask others about judgment. We all try our best to live in the image of Jesus Christ, to love him with all our hearts, avoid temptation, help others. answer questions to the best of our ability and knowledge of the scriptures. No one should condemn anyone from any denomination that live to glorify Jesus Christ. He is all that really matters. No one knows whose name is in the Lamb's book of life. To condemn anyone, we are in fact condemning ourselves to the same fate.

You answered your own question, that sums it up. That is correct, the mormon does not believe in a literal hell.

"Is not the name of our church The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints"?
Anyone who has ever attempted to enter a discussion with a Mormon about whether or not Mormons are Christians will encounter this question; mormons find it unthinkable that we don't agree that posting the name Jesus over the doors of Mormon Churches makes them Christian.
---Livermore_CA on 6/3/07


Mormonism wants it both ways.
Distinguish itself as The One True Church and at the same time depart from the Christian Church (or, to excommunicate the rest of the Christian Church). Mormons state that all other churches are abominable and corrupt. (Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith v. 19) Mormonism wants to be included in the family of Christian churches. It wants to be the One True Church, when it is convenient, and it wants to be a member of the larger Christian community when that is convenient.

it is always interesting to read what people say. reading the blogs here, it is just like satan, mixing fact with fiction to mislead many. if following Jesus Christ to the best of your ability, avoiding evil and not following evils of the flesh or giving into temptation is evidence of a cult, then all churches should be called cults because I thought that is what Jesus commanded us to do. live the gospel, repent and never do that sin again, pray always and live in harmony with Him.

Mormon theology is contrary to the Bible. It teaches that God was once a man (Adam), and through a process of good deeds became God. Mormons believe that God has a god over Him and so on..
They also teach that Jesus was conceived in the same way that we are conceived, through natural sexual union between man (Adam) and woman (Mary).
Brigham Young said that Jesus was conceived when Adam, who became our God through good works, had sexual relations with Mary.

Yes you are in the Family of Jesus thank God you are no longer following a false prophet. My heart goes out to all those that have left that cult and the ones that are trying to leave and now have lost their families and friends. But at the same time it is a blessing that their understanding was opened up and they followed the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Joseph Smith says he was given gold tablets from the angel Moroni, no one else ever saw them. He claimed these to be truthful things that were not in the bible, hence starting the LDS.

Abby, so far these responses are well-intentioned but off the mark.
