Religious Anti-Mormons Often Don’t Know Their Own Religion.
When Billy Graham decided to remove a page from his church website that ridiculed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as a cult, he was criticized by a Protestant minister who cited the “damnable heresies” of Mormonism. To illustrate the extremism of this remark, the following are 10 Mormon beliefs shared by Catholics, Episcopalians, Presberterians, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, and other Christians
1. There are three divine persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. (Nicene Creed)
2. God the Father is God. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
3. God the Son is God. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
4. The Holy Ghost is God. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
5. God the Father is not God the Son. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
6. God the Son is not the Holy Ghost. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
7. The Holy Ghost is not God the Father. (Shield of the Holy Trinity)
8. Jesus is coeternal and coequal with God the Father. (Nicene & Athanasian creeds)
9. Jesus was “begotten, not made” by God the Father “before all worlds”. (Nicene & Athanasian creeds)
10. How 8 and 9 can be reconciled is a mystery.
For reference the following is also provided.
Book of Mormon, Alma 13:7-9 “Thus [..] after the order of the Son, the Only Begotten of the Father, who is without beginning of days or end of years [..]”
D&C93:29 “Man was also in the beginning with God. Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither indeed can be.”
D&C 78:16 “Who [..] the Holy One, who is without beginning of days or end of life.”
Book of Abraham 1:3 “And God spake unto Moses, saying: Behold, I am the Lord God Almighty, and Endless is my name; for I am without beginning of days or end of years [..]”
