If you accept a phony dollar bill, you are only out a buck. But if you accept a counterfeit gospel,you are out heaven!

Mormonism is the "$3.00 bill" of Christianity - a phony. It is a hard saying for some to receive, but it is true. The Mormon "gospel" for all its Christian sounding terminology, is a false gospel (Galatians 1:6-9).

As a Christian I am obligated to warn people that Mormonism is not a Christian communion any more than the Mormon $3.00 bill printed on the cover of this tract is genuine currency. In fact, even when Joseph Smith, the first Mormon prophet, issued that money, it wasn't sound, and the whole banking scheme collapsed almost immediately. Although Joseph Smith's banking career was a total failure, his "religious" pursuits were a bit more successful. His phony $3.00 can't hurt you but his false gospel can!

You don't have to be an "expert" to identify a counterfeit, you just need to compare it to a genuine article. The Bible tells us to compare spiritual things with spiritual (1 Corinthians 2:13) as the means to proper spiritual discernment.

Therefore, I'd like to present a few of the aspects of Mormonism and its "gospel" for you to compare with Christianity.

Rather than make a lot of "charges" or "accusations" I prefer to simply let the Mormon Prophets and Apostles speak for themselves on a few subjects:

"VIRGIN" BIRTH

"The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood - was begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers." Brigham Young, (2nd Prophet,) Journal of Discourses, Volume 8, page 115.

"Christ was begotten by an Immortal Father in the same way that mortal men are begotten by mortal fathers." Bruce R. McConkie, (Apostle,) Mormon Doctrine, page 547.

OPINION OF "CHRISTIANS"

"Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness." Orson Pratt, (Apostle,) The Seer, page 255.

"It is a sounding brass and a tinkling symbol (sic); it is as corrupt as hell; and the Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century." John Taylor, (4th Prophet,) Journal of Discourses, Volume 6, page 167.

JESUS WAS MARRIED

"Jesus was the bridegroom at the marriage of Cana of Galilee, and he told them what to do ...We say it was Jesus Christ who was married, to be brought into the relation whereby he could see his seed, before he was crucified." Orson Hyde, (Apostle,) Journal of Discourses, Volume 2, page 82.

MORMON VIEW OF JOSEPH SMITH

"If it had not been for Joseph Smith and the restoration, there would be no salvation. There is no salvation outside of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." Bruce R. McConkie, (Apostle,) Mormon Doctrine, page 670

JOSEPH SMITH'S VIEW OF HIMSELF

"I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet." Joseph Smith, (1st Prophet,) History of the Church, Volume 6, page 408-409.

GOD, THE FATHER, IS A MAN

"God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man...I say, if you were to see him today, you would see him like a man in form - like yourselves, in all the person, image, and very form as a man...We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and will take away the veil, so that you may see." Joseph Smith, (1st Prophet,) History of the Church, Volume 6, page 305.

A MOTHER IN HEAVEN

"Finally, when we sing that doctrinal hymn and anthem of affection, 'Oh My Father,' we get a sense of the ultimate in maternal modesty, of the restrained, queenly elegance of our Heavenly Mother, and knowing how profoundly our mortal mothers have shaped us here, do we suppose her influence on us as individuals to be less if we live so as to return there?" Spencer W. Kimball, (12th Prophet,) Ensign Magazine, May 1978, page 6.

THERE ARE MANY GODS

"I wish to declare I have always and in all congregations when I have preached on the subject of the Deity, it has been the plurality of Gods... the doctrine of a plurality of Gods is as prominent in the Bible as any other doctrine. It is all over the face of the Bible. It stands beyond the power of controversy." Joseph Smith, (1st Prophet,) History of the Church, Volume 6, page 474.

MEN CAN BECOME GODS THEMSELVES

"Here then is eternal life - to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests, to God, the same as all Gods have done before you..." Joseph Smith, (1st Prophet,) History of the Church, Volume 6, page 306.

BLOOD OF CHRIST INSUFFICIENT

"Joseph Smith taught that there were certain sins so grievous that man may commit, that they will place the transgressors beyond the power of the atonement of Christ... Therefore their only hope is to have their own blood shed to atone..." Joseph Fielding Smith, (10th Prophet,) Doctrines of Salvation, Volume 1, page 135.

VIEW OF THE BIBLE

"No one can tell whether even one verse of either the Old or New Testament conveys the ideas of the original author." Orson Pratt, (Apostle,) Journal of Discourses, Volume 7, page 28.

MORMON SCRIPTURE SUPERIOR

"Q. Does the Book of Mormon contain any additional light not contained in the Bible?
"A. The whole volume without exception to any parts of it, contains additional light and truth." Orson Pratt, (Apostle)The Seer, page 212.

"I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." Joseph Smith, (1st Prophet,) History of the Church, Volume 4, page 461.

A CLOSING COMMENT

The above information, as unbelievable as it may seem to some - is the "gospel truth" about Mormonism. The Mormon leaders really say such things and mean what they say. As a former Mormon who once believed such things, I assure you of the accuracy of these statements, and invite validation of each and every word!

I want the Christian to know the truth about Mormonism and the Mormon to know the truth about Christ. I pray that this tract has helped accomplish the first goal and solicit Christian prayers for the success of the second.
