3 Mormon Missionaries asked us to talk with their Bishop and a lawyer on what are the differences of Mormonism and Christianity? The Mormons are shocked, stunned, and speechless to find out that Joseph Smith is not a true prophet! Have you ever asked what to say to Mormon Missionaries when they are knocking on my door? What are the Mormon beliefs that differ from Christian beliefs? Christians and Mormons differ on what they believe about the doctrine of the Trinity, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, salvation by grace through faith alone, the Bible as the inspired Word of God, etc. Talking to Mormon Missionaries takes patience and grace, and when witnessing to Mormons you need to study their books and doctrines to effectively witness to them.
In this Christian vs Mormon debate there are 3 main things that were talked about that prove Joseph Smith and the Mormon church is false. Joseph Smith testimony is false because he could not have had seen God the Father in the flesh and live. Joseph Smith Melchizedek priesthood authority is false because of his supposed Ephraim lineage and the curse of black skin (Egyptian, Cushites, Canaanites). Joseph Smith teachings that God was once a man who became a God is false.
References that were discussed were Joseph Smith History 1:1-20, Doctrine & Covenants 84:20-22, Pearl of Great Price book of Abraham 1:20-27, Genesis 41:50-52, 2 Nephi 3:5-15, History of the Church Volume 6 pages 305-306, Psalm 90:2, Deuteronomy 4:39, Moroni 8:18, Doctrine & Covenants 20:17, Isaiah 43:10. Sources from what the Bible teaches, the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Doctrine & Covenants, the Standard Works of the LDS church.
Joseph Smith claimed to see God in 1820 when he was praying, but he did not have the Melchizedek priesthood until 1829. Doctrines & Covenants 84:20-22 proves Joseph Smith testimony if false. The Latter Day Saints (LDS) – the Mormon church claims that Joseph Smith is from the lineage of Ephraim 2 Nephi 3:5-15. According to the Pearl of Great Price book of Abraham 1:20-27 and Genesis 41:50-52 Joseph Smith could not have the Melchizedek priesthood authority because he would be of the cursed race, of the Egyptian lineage. Joseph Smith claimed he would prove all other teachers and preachers to be false and that he was a true prophet of God by what he taught about the character of God not being from all eternity, but that God was once a man like us who became a God. Moroni 8:18 and Doctrine & Covenants 20:17 prove God has always been God from everlasting to everlasting, also Psalm 90:2 and Deuteronomy 4:39 prove God is unchangeable.
Joseph Smith is a false teacher and a false prophet. A very good resource to have is Kingdom of the Cults by Dr. Walter Martin who is most likely the reason Christian Apologetics is around like it is today. Walter Martin was known as the Bible Answer Man witnessing to thousands of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups leading people to know Jesus Christ personally.
