Andrea-The book of Jude in the Bible says "saving some with fear and others with compassion.." Lashing out against someone that has a tender heart will only drive them away from the truth. Be mericful! Don't condemn bcuz that is what we all deserve, reach out to someone with respect,truth & love in your hand & heart.

**That's a really big "if". I would suggest you read it. -Tammy**

I wanted to know what my friends believed and why, that is why i read the BOM and the D & C, PGP, many of the Discourses. As I found things that didn't line up or make sense, I re-read and asked a ton of questions of LDS members and missionaries, they couldnt answer the questions. So please read what I wrote, ask questions, ask why, and expect valid answers. you may be surprised with what you discover.

Tammy- Truth is everything. Many people, both LDSs & "Christians" think they have the truth-but read Matt7. Ask yourself who are the people who, on judgement day. say "lord,lord, didn't I do.." It isn't a religious group of people, because G-d is not partial to one religion over another-He is only partial to a rigtheous heart. Ask yourself why will so many people say "lord, lord..." Read and re-read and dig deep,the answer is there. Much respect and many blessings to you.

Tammy-not to turn this into a sabbath debate,as written in Acts, "the 1st day of the week ancient days began saturday eve at sunset. The jews were gathered for the havdallah service which ended the sabbath. G-d gave us a specific day,the 7th, to keep holy. G-d doesn't change & neither does his word. Christians began worshipping on sunday to avoid persecution towards sabbath keepers. Constantine wanted the christian faith to fit pagan customs.read ancient history.

Question: LDSs believe that Moroni is angel described in Rev 14:6. How can this be if the events preceeding Rev 14 have not occured yet? This portion of Rev is in chronological order.

Another Question: J Smith had, on more than 1 ocassion, said the Nephi was the angel that gave him the plates. This claim is supported by others including Smith's mother, Mary Whitmer, & the 1stEd of Pearl of Great Price. However, Smith also said that Moroni was the angel that gave him the plates, this view being the one that is maintained by LDS. How do you explain this obvious discrepancy by the faith's founder?

contradiction#3:

The BOM teaches that salvation is by grace and works (2 Nephi 25:23) However the Bible states that salvation is by grace alone (EPh 2:8-9). The works that we do are the evidence of our salvation, not the basis of salvation.

#4- BOM says the Jesus was born in Jerusalem (Alma 7:10), the Bible clearly states that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. (Mt 2:1)

contradiction#5:

The BOM teaches that the preisthood did not need to be Levitical. (2 Nephi 5:26-Lehi was of the tribe of Joseph). Yet Number 3:9-10 states that the priesthood could only be through Aaron a Levite.

#6-Alma 16:13 says that the command was given to build the temples in america. But 1 kings 8:44-48 shows the Jerusalem was explicity chosen by G-d as the site for the temple.

contradiction#7:

3 days or 3 hours- there's a big differnce. The BOM says that at Christ's crucifixion there was 3 days of darkness (Helaman 14:27), but Luke 23:44 says there was only 3 hours.

Written by men of the LDS faith, the Doctrines & Convenants is second most read after the BOM. Yet in Matt 15:9, Jesus said that they worship G-d in vain because the follow the doctrines of men and not of G-d.

There's more, but if the Bible (OT & NT) has survived millenias and the BOM has only been a around for a couple hundred years, which one would you trust to be true.

God dwells in the heart-Alma 34:36
God doesn't dwell in the heart-D & C Section 130:3

Gods word is unchangeable-Alma 41:8
Gods word can change-D & C Section 56:4-5

Death seals man fate-Mosiah 2:36-39, Alma 34:32-35

Two of my good friends, whom I greatly respect, are members of the LDS church and I have asked them this question but have never recieved a valid reply: If the Mormon faith contradicts itself & the Bible, then where is one's confidence that Mormonism is the one true religion?

there are contradictions between Mormonism & theBible. please read with an open mind because they are given to you with respect.

#1-The Book of Mormon teaches that little children are not capable of sin because they do not have a sinful nature (Moroni 8:8). However the Bible clearly shows that we have sinful nature from birth: "Look, I was guilty of sin from birth,a sinner the moment my mother conceived me." Ps 51:5(NET).

contradiction#2:

The BOM teaches that dark/black people are a sign of G-d's curse and that white people are superior to them. (2 Nephi 5:21) But the Bible reveals that we are all created in His image (Gen 1:26), that we are from one blood (Acts 17:26), there are no distinctions & partiality in Christ (Gal 3:28,James 2:1).

**The church follows the ten commandments and all commandments Jesus gave us** Ashley

As with most Christian churches, LDSs only follow 9 commandments. The sabbath is saturday as described in the Bible, not Sunday. It was never changed by G-d as some believe.

**It wasn't in Jesus' resurrection that HE paid for our sins. It was on the cross.** Susie

It was the cross and resurrection that our paid for our redemption. If Yeshua had only died, then HaSaTan would have triumphed in Yeshua's death. However, since Yeshua resurrected we also have victory over death, hell and the grave.

**While the world system has these events, why not simply join in and at the same time use these events as a means of witnessing to others about Christ?** Lee

Because we should not be CONFORMED to this world: but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of our minds, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. We witness to the world by being different than it. You can not call someone out of the world if you are in the midst of it.

**7. What is the purpose of life? Is there some sort of plan?**

The purpose of life is to love G-d with all your heart, soul, mind. If you follow a false picture of G-d you are still missing the boat. Yes, there has always been a plan. G-d wants man to be united with Him. Man's sin got in the way-now we have a choice-do we accept Jesus as the only atonement for sin or do we say that our own works will save us?
