Some interesting biblical resources on Mormonism...

While I was in the researching mode, I found some interesting stuff on them lovable Mormon rapscallions!

1. The Institute for Religious Research has some fantastic articles and plenty of original source documented resources on understanding and apologetically tackling Mormonism.

Definitely also check out the link entitled "Where does it say that?", which has scans of original source Mormon Documents that present many of the heresies that they try to deny.

2. Utah Lighthouse Ministries is possibly the most scholarly and comprehensive sites dealing with Mormonism. They have several books, posted in their entirety, on their site free of charge.

3. The Mormonism Research Ministry is another great site with tons of info. Lots of articles and concrete stuff to help you sort through your next encounter with LDS missionaries.

Now, there are tons of other resources out there, but a majority of them will either quote these three or have the same data as they do.

Also, if you want to do some of your own research, The Book of Mormon, Doctrines and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price are all entirely available online.

Mormons are so confused and so lost, and I definitely have a spot in my heart for them. I mean, consider this quote (from here) that explains what was accomplished by Christ on the cross:

" On the cross, He allowed Himself to die. His body was then laid in a tomb until He was resurrected and became "the firstfruits of them that slept" (1 Corinthians 15:20). Through His death and Resurrection, He overcame physical death for us all.

Jesus Christ redeems all people from the effects of the Fall. All people who have ever lived on the earth and who ever will live on the earth will be resurrected and brought back into the presence of God to be judged (see 2 Nephi 2:5–10; Helaman 14:15–17). Through the Savior's gift of mercy and redeeming grace, we will all receive the gift of immortality and live forever in glorified, resurrected bodies.

Although we are redeemed unconditionally from the universal effects of the Fall, we are accountable for our own sins..."

Anything wrong with that?

And Mormons try to pass themselves off as Christians...?!?

Until Next Time,
