Many of these theological points come from Joseph Smith's later revelations, and are rejected by some of the splinter groups who accept only the Book of Mormon and Smith's earlier teachings which have a more conventional Christian theology and a monotheistic, trinitarian view of God. He did not agree with the LDS view on the Trinity at that time, but recognized that there are significant parallels between early Christian doctrines on "becoming a god" and what we claim to be the restored doctrine of exaltation, and correctly pointed out the fallacies of our critics who charge us with being non-Christian for having such truly Christian doctrines.

Asking whether Mormons are Christians may offend them, but it is nonetheless a fair question... " Goodhue notes that "Drawing boundaries and limits is distasteful to many people, but as my Dad often reminds me that, "The problem with being too open-minded is that all your brains may fall out." In fact, Christian Science says that prayer to a personal God is a hindrance. The Bible makes it clear that the Book of Mormon is false (e.g., Gal. 1:8-9). One would hope that even when one has made an unconscious assumption that when his conclusions are proven faulty he would then ask himself where his underlying error lay.

Counterfeit doctrines are lies and Satan is the father of all lies, thus they are serving Satan. (See John 8:44) The tragedy is they reject God's truth and substitute another Jesus, who does not exist and cannot save. The Second Great Awakening in the late 1820s and 1830s brought evangelical Protestantism to the frontiers, and in so doing it reshaped American society. In 1823, he was supposedly visited by the angel Moroni (the gold angelic figure blowing a horn atop many Mormon temples), who gave him a series of golden plates inscribed with hieroglyphics, which he translated into the Book of Mormon.

In addition to the quotes above from Jerome, Origen, John Chrysostom and Clement of Alexandria, the possibility of human deification was held by that "champion of orthodoxy," Athanasius (e.g., see Keith E.

Does even one of his teachings contradict the Jesus of the Bible? The question that religious scholars and philosophers try to answer is how to reconcile the many injustices to a loving and just God. Jesus was subject to errors and defects. 9. -The death of Jesus was not expiatory.� He redeemed us not with His death but with His example and with His teachings. 10. -Jesus Christ did not establish a church, nor a hierarchy, nor the Primacy of Peter.� The Primacy of the Pope is a myth.� Christ did not establish a sacrificial priesthood, but merely sent apostles to teach his doctrine. 11. -Mary is not the mother of God.�� The virginal conception of Jesus by Mary is admitted.� The perpetual virginity of Mary post partum is denied.
