[quote=BJ Colbert]Do you think that if we read anti-mormon literature it will just dawn on us that we are wrong and you are right? Do you read anti-Catholic literature and see the light? I think not. Have you read the Book of Mormon? Have you read all of the positive books about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? Do you compare the positive with the negative, or did you just come across this one site or two and decide that is proof positive that Mormonism is false? Do another post when you have read the Book of Mormon, then decide using factual information instead of hate literature. What if I read all anti-Catholic information and formed my opinion of your Church by the many anti-ravings available on the web and in bookstores to proove you are wrong. Actually, I am not out to prove anyone wrong, it is our God-given right to believe what we wish to believe and I am not going to tell you your religion is wrong(although I personally believe it is) I would never tear down your leaders or you right to believe. I respect your Church and you and will not stoop to hate mongers to give me information. I will judge your church on its members and how they treat others, and how they live the commandments of God.

Yes I have read the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Doctrines and Covenants, and all other LDS publications. I used to BEa Later-Day Saint. Untill I saw the fact that Joseph Smith lied about the Book Of Abraham, and about the Kinderhook plates and other things. I was just upset at the lies I was believing. In my opinion that is proof enough for me that Mormonism is not the true religion. I had this “testemony of the Holy Spirit”, yet you cannot trust feelings (Jer. 17:9). The Book Of Mormon may be true. I do not know. In Fact, as a work of literature it is my favorite book, it is very exciting and neat and about people who show true devotion to God. It has many great morals to be learned. In fact, it contradicts Mormon teaching!
The Book of Mormon: There is only one God
Mosiah 15:1,5; Alma 11:28; 2 Nephi 31:21
LDS Church: there are many gods.
Joseph Smith, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 6, p. 5
They say the Book of Mormon is the most correct book, then why doesnt it tell about and contradict LDS teachings such as:
Plurality of Gods
Plurality of wives doctrine
Word of Wisdom
God is an exalted man
Men may become Gods(one of the main reasons why i miss being Mormon, this promise sounded interseting and exciting to me especially after playing my favorite game Black and White which is a God simulator)
Three degrees of glory
Baptism for the dead
The Aaronic Priesthood
Even after all of this, I still dissaprove of calling Mormonism a “cult”. Even Jehoavh’s Witnesses. That is just too ignorant. To me a cult is one that consists of 50 memebers and goes around wearing black cloaks chanting and using Magick and sacrificing little kids, and then shooting themsleves.
Not only that, but I have come to the conclusion that it is false because of my own reaserch into the Book Of Abraham and its origin, and also from comparing on how the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints contradicts its own SCRIPTURE! If you can say that I would not go to Hell for believing in their false doctrines, then I will go right back because I loved it; it matched many of my personal beleifs about how religion should be. God Bless and forgive me for acting ignorant. And yes, he is right; LDS members are great people. I can tell you are. P.S. show me one fact that dissaproves Catholicism. Most of them can be easily argued. Now that I think about it this was pretty stupid of me to post this entire thread. I should have at least stated it more politely. I wish we could edit our posts (I cant for some reason, after I post the thread the “edit” button dissapears. Is it supposed to?
