Mormonism: Part I

This excerpt was taken from Mormon.org, the LDS website:
"The commandments of God have been restored through revelation from God to the Prophet Joseph Smith and other prophets. You can know for yourself that these things are true by asking Heavenly Father in prayer."

Excerpt from the "restored commandments" of Mormonism:
Follow the Prophet: God reveals the truths necessary for salvation through prophets and apostles. The President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a living prophet.

However, the Bible says, "Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart." ~Jeremiah 14:14

"Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD." ~Jeremiah 23:16

"I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied." ~Jeremiah 23:21

"Behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith." ~Jeremiah 23: 31

It is truly a sobering thought to look at these cults and realize but for the grace of God, we would believe the same things they do.

Good post.
