Therefore, this book will probably not pursuade any Mormon to abandon his or her beliefs. From those Mormons I have engaged in conversation on the matter, they are already aware that there are contradictions between LDS writings and those in the Bible, and even between LDS writings of Joseph Smith at one point in time and another. They just attribute it to a matter of "continuing revelation" from God to man. Also remember that Mormons believe the entire church was "lost" from the time that the Romans adopted Christianity until Joseph Smith restored it. Thus they could just attribute deviations between the Bible and their own LDS writings to errors that were introduced into the Bible by uninspired and even corrupt men during this "lost" period.
It is hard for someone to renounce beliefs they have probably held since childhood, especially if it would cost them their friends, family, and entire way of life. After all, if you were born and raised in Algeria, do you have any doubt that you would be a devout Muslim, convinced of the absolute correctness of that religion? Therefore I would recommend the book to Christians who want to know why Mormonism is not Christianity, but don't expect any miracles of evangelism to proceed from it.
He points out, "At some point in the chain, there had to be at least one God who did not get his existence from a previous god. This God would have to be self-existent: that is, his existence would not come from a source outside of him; rather, he must have always existed as the uncaused cause of everything else that exists." (Pg. 51)
He charges, "The truth is that Mormons cannot escape the sordid implications of their view of Jesus' conception. If, as Mormonism certainly teaches, God the heavenly Father is a being of flesh and bone and possesses a sexual nature, then one is inexorably led to the conclusion that Jesus' conception involved some kind of sexual component... Does it not, at least, seem that God had sexual relations with his own spirit-daughter, making him appear guilty of incest?" (Pg. 71)
He argues, "The most serious error of Mormonism, however, is its claim that in the postmortal or spirit world one may achieve salvation or a higher level of heaven. The Bible is clear that it is appointed unto humankind to die and then be judged once." (Pg. 131)
He observes, "Another puzzling aspect of Mormonism is that there is no accounting to the membership of church funds.Read more ›
