If, perchance, you have recently accepted an invitation to a weekend evening meeting, in a Mormon (LDS) friendï¿½s home, to hear two full-time Mormon missionaries introduce you to Mormon theology and doctrine, you are, no doubt, going to wonder during the days preceding the meeting what those young missionaries are going to tell you. You have already been told by your zealous Mormon friends that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) is totally Christian and based upon Jesusï¿½ and his apostlesï¿½ teachings and doctrines contained in the Holy Bible, but you personally know absolutely nothing about Mormonism. So, on the day just before the meeting, you are intensely wondering about Mormonism as you go to your mailbox to collect your mail, and there you find a manila envelope addressed to the residents living at your location from the Christian Information Service (CIS). You curiously open it to find a four-page letter addressed to Christians, individuals, and families, from the CIS, and a copy of a Mormon lesson, ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ from an officially published 1984 Melchizedek Priesthood Study Guide, entitled ï¿½Search These Commandments,ï¿½ prepared by the First Presidency (the presiding Mormon prophet and his two apostle counselors) of the Mormon Church in late 1983. The Melchizedek Priesthood is the high-priesthood of Mormonism, held by all Mormon elders, through which all Mormon theology and doctrine has been, and is continually, produced. http://richkelsey.org/lesson21.html
As you read the letter, you discover that CIS is comprised of ex-Mormon elders and sisters who, during a former part of their lives, were full-time and part-time Mormon missionaries just like the missionaries you are expecting to meet. Reading on, you find the CIS letter telling you, in detail, that what the Mormon missionaries will swear to you is the truth during their meeting about Mormon theology and doctrine will actually be lies and misrepresentations about real Mormon theology. The letter will, then, direct you to read ï¿½Lesson 21,ï¿½ and it will guide you into an understanding of real theology of Mormonism, which is based entirely upon pagan polytheism. This is what the Mormon missionaries donï¿½t want you to know, for they firmly believe in lying for their lord in order to perpetuate the lies of the Mormon Church. As you begin to read ï¿½Lesson 21,ï¿½ you first discover that the Mormon First Presidency regards ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ as doctrinal LDS commandments, and that all Mormon elders are told that they have a destiny to be as great as their god, with a capital G. You then read that one of the 19th Century Mormon prophets, Lorenzo Snow, declared, as doctrine, that, ï¿½As man is, God once was, and as God is, man may become.ï¿½ You are, no doubt, startled by what you have so-far read, so you read further to find out that Mormon theology teaches that the Mormon father-god, with a capital G, was once a human Mormon man who was born, and lived, on a planet just like earth; who changed, and changed, and changed, and obeyed all the laws of Mormonism; who died, who was resurrected, and attained the highest Mormon heaven, called exaltation. Thereafter, he was made into a Mormon father-god, with a capital G, and given power to organize, not create a planet (Mormon theology declares that Mormon father-gods, with a capital G, cannot create anything out of nothing; they can only change existing energy and matter from form to another) and celestially procreate billions of spirit children to inhabit the bodies he will allow to be made through biological reproduction of the Adam and Eve he will organize and place upon his earth-like planet.
By now, you are completely exasperated by knowing that Mormon theology maintains that all Mormon elders have the destiny of becoming Mormon father-gods, with a capital G, and wonder why the Mormon Church is named after Jesus Christ, when it is obviously polytheistic, which is heresy to the Holy Bible. Well, the facts that ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ will not tell you, because of intentional brevity, is that Joseph Smith, Jr., the founding prophet of Mormonism, originally concocted Mormon polytheism in a doctrinal proclamation that he made in 1844, in Nauvoo, Illinois, during a Mormon Church general conference. The proclamation was called the ï¿½King Follett Discourse,ï¿½ which is the theological foundation to ï¿½Lesson 21.ï¿½ The theology was refined, and expanded further, by the second Mormon prophet, Brigham Young, between 1850 and 1877 in the Salt Lake, Utah Valley, which prompted Young to declare during a Mormon general conference, in 1868, that, ï¿½There are as many Gods as there are stars, and as many saviors as there are Gods.ï¿½ What does that actually mean? It means that every Mormon father-god, with a capital G, has the destiny of ï¿½procreatingï¿½ a savior, just like Jesus Christ, which is utter heresy. That principle of Mormon polytheism relegates the Savior Jesus Christ, the one-and-only Redeemer of mankind, to the status of just another savior in the heretical plan of pagan Mormon theology. The sickening truth regarding the rarely written publication of real Mormon theology is that the Mormon Church only publishes its theology, in written study form, as the the principles contained in ï¿½Lesson 21,ï¿½ approximately every 25 years. The year 1984 was the last time that the principles of real polytheistic Mormon theology were published in written form, and this policy is still followed by the Mormon Church in order to establish plausible deniability; wherein the Mormon Church can claim, as their Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley claimed to Larry King on national television in 1999, when he was asked if Mormons believe that God the Father is a man. Hinckley curtly replied that, ï¿½We don't know very much about that.ï¿½ Yet, Hinckley was actually the man who put the 1984 Melchizedek Priesthood Study Guide, ï¿½Search These Commandments,ï¿½ together for publication.
After completely reading ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ and the scriptures of the Holy Bible used in it, taken completely out of context to support the polytheistic theology it endorses, you are now very frustrated by your friendsï¿½ deceptive attempt to draw you into, what you now know is, a pagan cult, which is not, to any extent, Christian. So you make copies of ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ and call your friends to let them know that you are canceling the arranged meeting and that you have an official doctrinal document of the Mormon Church that you want them to read and explain. More than likely, your friends will immediately make an effort to visit you, and if they are new converts to the Mormon Church, and havenï¿½t been to the Mormon temple, they might not realize that what they are really advocating and worshiping, and might be ignorant of the pagan heresy. If they were born into the Mormon Church and were married in the Mormon temple, there is a great probability that they have totally accepted Mormon polytheism and have pledged, with blood oaths in the Mormon temple, to defend Mormonism by lying for their god, with a capital G (the blood oaths were required in the Mormon temple rite until 1993, when they were suddenly expurgated without explanation). There is no telling what true-blue temple Mormons will pragmatically do to make you believe that the lies the Mormon missionaries will tell you are true. But the bottom line is that now you know, and realize, that Mormonism is not Christian, and that you should eschew what they are teaching and cling to the teachings of the real, unique, Lord Jesus Christ, and his Apostles, contained only in the Holy Bible.
On realizing, therefore, the awful truth about the pernicious evil of the real polytheistic theology of Mormonism, and the fraudulent, continuous missionary efforts of the world-wide $700 billion Mormon Church to deceive the Christian world into believing that Mormon theology and doctrine is based upon the biblical teachings of Jesus Christ, the genuine disciples of Jesus should have a resolved desire, through the Holy Spirit, to help other Christians understand, and avoid, the deceptive practices of the Mormon Church. Whether they realize it, or not, the Mormon Church has actually ensured its own eventual demise by its publishing of ï¿½Lesson 21.ï¿½ After reading it, no true Christian man or woman would give a second thought to an invitation to hear Mormonism presented by Mormon missionaries. The polytheistic doctrines exuding from ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ are plainly clear enough for any reasonable person reading it to completely understand that Mormonism is predicated on the pagan foundation of many gods, with a capital G, underscoring their most heinous doctrine that Mormon elders have a destiny of becoming Mormon father-gods, with a capital G, just like the father-god, with a capital G, that they currently worship; which they believe was born as a human being on an earth somewhere in the cosmos and became a father-god, with a capital G, after working and obeying the laws of Mormonism, dying, resurrecting, and being awarded the highest degree of Mormon heaven, called exaltation. Mormon elders are also taught in the Mormon temples that they will each, as father-gods, procreate, with the aid of their celestial wife or wives, their own savior, just like Jesus Christ, for the world that they are allowed to create and populate with billions of spirit children that they will celestially procreate and clothe in physical bodies.
As you can clearly see, the rapid dissemination of ï¿½Lesson 21ï¿½ to all friends, neighbors, and loved ones by concerned Christians will ensure that those individuals, struggling Christians, will have no interest, whatsoever, in hearing pagan Mormonism when the Mormon missionaries come knocking at their doors, or when a frenetic Mormon associate at work asks, ï¿½What do know about the Mormons?ï¿½ Correct and true knowledge of Jesus Christ provides inspired power for the true believer, and that is what the Apostle Paul meant, in 2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV), when he said, ï¿½Be diligent to present yourself approved unto God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.ï¿½
