part 2 of 2:
More documentation to verify these Mormon beliefs can be found here:

* The Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants, both written by Joseph Smith, are the primary “scriptures” of the Mormons. They do pay “lip service” to the Bible as they do include the King James version of the Bible as part of their Scriptures, HOWEVER, they don’t consider it to be “correctly translated” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p10). So when the Bible disagrees with the Book of Mormon, etc, the Bible is cast aside
* Joseph Smith (the “founder” of Mormonism) boasted that he did more than Jesus. “…I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet…” (History of the Church,Vol6, p408-409)
* Brigham Young (the second “prophet” of the Mormon church) said you can’t get to the highest heaven without Joseph Smith’s consent. “…no man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith.” (Journal of Discourses, Vol7, p289)
Again, as you can see, Mormonism is focused on a man (Joseph Smith) and his teachings and works…. not on Jesus Christ! It is a cult!!!
* Mormon leaders demand TOTAL OBEDIENCE regardless whether they are right or wrong.
“When our leaders speak, the thinking has been done. When they propose a plan it is God’s plan.” (Improvement Era, June 1945, p354)
“But if you are told by your leader to do a thing, do it. None of your business whether it is right or wrong.” (Journal of Discourses, vol6, p32)

The Bible warns us in 1Jn4:l: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” In Acts17:11 the berean believers, called ”noble” or God-fearing, were verifying in the Scriptures what Paul was preaching

* To the Mormon, the ULTIMATE TEST that Mormonism is true is an “INNER FEELING:” Doctrine and Cov9:8 says: ” . . .study it out in your mind; then you must ask me [the Lord] if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall FEEL that it is right.”
The Bible says: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2Tim.2:15)

* The majority of the activity in the Mormon Temples is work done in behalf of the DEAD. Joseph Smith offers this explanation: “The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our DEAD.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p356) But the Bible indicates:
“None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him.” Ps49:7

Mormons today believe God the Father is married and past leaders have taught both God the Father and Jesus Christ are polygamists. Apostle Orson Pratt makes these unbelievable statements:
“. . .the great Messiah who was the founder of the Christian religion, was a Polygamist,. . . the Messiah chose to take upon himself his seed; and by marrying many honorable wives himself, show to all future generations that he approbated the plurality of Wives under the Christian dispensation,. . .God the Father had a plurality of wives,. . . the Son followed the example of his Father,. . . both God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ inherit their wives in eternity as well as in time;. . .” The Seer, p.172;
Joseph Smith made false prophecies that Jesus will come on the clouds before he would reach 86 years old (History of the Church, vol.2, p. 182 also vol.5, p336)
Mormons are taught to “shake hands” with a messenger to determine if he is from God or if he is the devil: “When a messenger comes saying he has a message from God, offer him your hand and request him to shake hands with you. If he be an angel he will do so, and you will feel his hand. . . . If it were the devil as an angel of light, you will not feel anything; you may therefore detect him.” (Doctrine and Covenants 129:4,5,8)

Rather than trusting in “feelings” the Bible commands us to: “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1Thess.5:21)
