African-Americans and Mormonism: Past Racist Doctrine

Mormon Apostle Joseph Smith Called Blacks "Niggers"




A Brief Synopsis What Mormons Believe



Mormons believe in millions of gods. Mormons long to become a a god. They don't long to spend eternity with Jesus Christ (source).
Biblical response: Isaiah 45:5-12. G-d said their is no other god, but Him.

They teach that man is a god in embryo, and may attain exaltation to godhood as the heavenly father has(source).
Biblical response: Psalm 51:5. Were born as sinners, not gods.

They believe in an eternal mother who engages in sex with the heavenly father to create human spirits. She is the wife of God (source).
Biblical response: Ezekieal 18:4. G-d is the Creator of all things, all the souls belong to Him.

Mormons believe Jesus was a polygamist who was married to Mary and Martha at the same time.  They also believe that God the Father is polygamist (source).
Biblical response: The Bible never states that Jesus was married to Mary and Martha. This is a gnostic doctrine. G-d the Father creates.  He does not procreate.

Mormonism holds the belief that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers.  Both are the elder brothers of heaven and were produced by God through a sexual union (sourcesource).
Biblical response: John 1:14 and John 3:16. Jesus is the only begotten son of the Father.

Mormons don't believe in virgin birth of Jesus Christ.  They believe Mary had sex with God the Father. They believed Mary was married both to God and Joseph (source).
Biblical response: Matthew 1:23 and Isaiah 7:14. Marry was a virgin that gave birth to Jesus.

They believe God was once a man of flesh and bones and that someday we can become a god over our own universe (source).
Biblical response: John 4:24. G-d is spirit, we must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

Mormons believe that some sins are so bad that the blood of Jesus can't atone for sins.  Instead, a person must shed their own blood for atonement (source).
Biblical response: Matthew 26:28. Only Jesus' blood was shed for remission of all sins and it marks a new covenant.

Besides

Baptism of the dead is another doctrine in Mormonism.  A Mormon can be baptized in place of their dead ancestors or friends so that these dead friends or family members can become Mormons (source).

Biblical response: Hebrews 9:27. Man is appointed once to die, then the judgment. The Bible doesn't speak about karma or purgatory.
