Some of the Most Blasphemous and Damnable Mormon Doctrines

Some of the Most Blasphemous and Damnable
Mormon Doctrines

  1. “We believe in a God who is
    Himself progressive
    , whose majesty is intelligence; whose perfection
    consists in eternal advancement — a Being who has attained
    His exalted state by a path which now His children are permitted to
    follow
    , whose glory it is their heritage to share. In spite of the
    opposition of the sects, in the face of direct charges of blasphemy, the Church
    proclaims the eternal truth: ‘As man is, God once was; as
    God is, man may be.
    ‘” (LDS Apostle James E. Talmage, Articles of Faith,
    Ch.24, p.430 – p.431, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  2. ” ‘It is the first principle of the gospel to know
    for a certainty the character of God,’ the inspired word continues, ‘and to know
    that we may converse with Him as one man converses with another, and that He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the
    Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did.’ The
    Father is a glorified, perfected, resurrected, exalted man who worked out his
    salvation by obedience to the same laws he has given to us so that we may do the
    same.”
    (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, A New Witness for the Articles of
    Faith, p.64, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  3. “Thus, on this beautiful spring morning in the
    Sacred Grove, Joseph Smith witnessed the renewal of God’s dealing with his
    children in accordance with the great gospel plan of redemption. Upon this
    occasion God the Father and his Beloved Son Jesus Christ appearing as glorified
    Resurrected Beings unto a chosen servant of God, made known once again the state
    of immortality which man will attain in preparation for the next estate of
    eternity; that also the world once again could know the reality of the personal
    nature of God the Father and his Beloved Son. (LDS Apostle Alvin R. Dyer,
    Conference Report, April 1963, p.49 – p.50, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  4. “As we stretch our imaginations to absorb the
    limitlessness of the creations of God we turn to a favorite song: If you could
    hie to Kolob in the twinkling of an eye, And then continue onward with that same
    speed to fly, D’ye think that you could ever, through all eternity, Find out the generation where Gods began to be? Or see the
    grand beginning, where space did not extend? Or view the last creation where
    Gods and matter end? Methinks the Spirit whispers, “No man has found ‘pure
    space,'” Nor seen the outside curtains, where nothing has a place. The works of
    God continue, and worlds and lives abound; Improvement and progression have one
    eternal round. There is no end to matter; there is no end to space; There is no
    end to spirit; there is no end to race.” (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon
    Doctrine, p.250, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  5. God: Creator And Ruler Of
    Many Worlds
    . — While it is true that evolutionists may be divided
    between theistic and atheistic groups, yet most of those professing belief in
    God consider him to be an indefinable force, essence, or power of an
    incomprehensible nature. According to revelation, however, he is a personal Being, a holy and exalted Man, a glorified,
    resurrected Personage having a tangible body of flesh and bones, an
    anthropomorphic Entity, the personal Father of the spirits of all men.

    (D. & C. 130:22- 23; Moses 6:51, 57; Abra. 3:22-24; Jos. Smith 2:16-19.)”
  6. “We are members of the family of the Eternal
    Father. He is a glorified and exalted and eternal Being,
    having a resurrected body of flesh and bones. His name is God, and the kind of
    life he lives is God’s life.
    His name is also Eternal, and the name of
    the kind of life he lives is eternal life. Eternal life is God’s life, and God’s
    life is eternal life. We are commanded to be perfect as he is perfect and to
    advance and progress until we become like him, or in other words, until we gain
    eternal life. Thus Joseph Smith said, “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, namely, by going from one small degree to another,
    and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace from exaltation to
    exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to
    dwell in everlasting burnings and to sit in glory, as do those who sit enthroned
    in everlasting power.”
    (Teachings, pp. 346-47.) Christ our Lord has so
    obtained, thus enabling him to say to the faithful: “Ye shall be even as I am,
    and I am even as the Father.” (3 Ne. 28:10.)” (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie,
    The Mortal Messiah, Vol.1, p.23 – p.24, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  7. “I will prove that the world is wrong, by showing
    what God is. I am going to inquire after God; for I want you all to know Him,
    and to be familiar with Him; and if I am bringing you to a knowledge of Him, all
    persecutions against me ought to cease. You will then know that I am His
    servant; for I speak as one having authority. … “I will go
    back to the beginning before the world was, to show what kind of a being God
    is
    . What sort of a being was God in the beginning? Open your ears and
    hear, all ye ends of the earth. for I am going to prove it to you by the Bible,
    and to tell you the designs of God in relation to the human race, and why He
    interferes with the affairs of man. … “God himself was
    once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens!
    That is the great secret.
    If the veil were rent today, and the great God
    who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds and all things by
    His power, was to make himself visible,–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; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and
    likeness of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed
    with Him, as one man talks and communes with another. … “In order to
    understand the subject of the dead, for consolation of those who mourn for the
    loss of their friends, it is necessary we should understand the character and
    being of God and how He came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came
    to be God. We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I
    will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see. … “These
    are incomprehensible ideas to some, but they are simple. It is the first
    principle of the gospel to know for a certainty the character of God, and to
    know that we may converse with Him as one man converses with another, and that
    He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on
    an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did; and I will show it from the
    Bible. … “I wish I was in a suitable place to tell it, and that I had the
    trump of an archangel, so that I could tell the story in such a manner that
    persecution would cease forever. What did Jesus say? (Mark it, Elder Rigdon!)
    The scriptures inform us that Jesus said, as the Father hath power in himself,
    even so hath the Son power–to do what? Why, what the Father did. The answer is
    obvious–in a manner to lay down his body and take it up again. Jesus, what are
    you going to do? To lay down my life as my Father did, and take it up again. Do
    you believe it? If you do not believe it you do not believe the Bible. The
    scriptures say it, and I defy all the learning and wisdom and all the combined
    powers of earth and hell together to refute it. 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, namely, by going from one small degree to another,
    and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace, from exaltation
    to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead,
    and are
    able to dwell in everlasting burnings. and to sit in glory, as do those who sit
    enthroned in everlasting power. And I want you to know that God, in the last
    days, while certain individuals are proclaiming His name, is not trifling with
    you or me.” (LDS President Joseph Smith, History of the Church, Vol.6, Ch.14,
    p.305-6, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  8. Intelligent beings are
    organized to become Gods, even the Sons of God, to dwell in the presence of the
    Gods, and become associated with the highest intelligences that dwell in
    eternity. We are now in the school, and must practice upon what we
    receive.
    ” (LDS President Brigham Young, Discourses of Brigham Young,
    p.245, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  9. “This was the calling of Joseph Smith. He taught
    anew that God was in the form of man; that man was made in the image of God; and
    he taught the principles of justice, mercy, charity, and forgiveness. … He
    taught the truths that the Prophets before him had taught;
    and he went beyond them. …
    Joseph Smith taught men to look up to heaven and conceive of
    a God in the form of man. He taught them that they could become like their
    Father and God, who was ‘an exalted Man.’ And what is more simple and
    reasonable? Don’t you parents expect your children to become like you? Or do you
    expect your children to be something else than men and women?
    No. You men
    will see your sons become men; you women will see your daughters become women.
    Then God our Father–yes, and our Mother–in heaven, looking down upon this
    world– this school house in which their children are being
    educated–expect, and Joseph Smith taught it as a truth, that their children
    will be exalted, if they pursue the proper course, until they shall become
    divine beings themselves, worthy to stand upon that plane where stand their
    Father and their Mother in heaven. Like begets like; and the principle of
    eternal progress will make of man a God.
    (LDS Apostle Orson F. Whitney,
    Collected Discourses, Vol.5, May 8, 1898, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
