“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
I John 4:1 NKJV
I had some Mormon missionaries come to my house recently, and as soon as I told them I was a Bible-believing Christian they began to try and explain how their Book of Mormon was linked to the Bible. They recited several truths from their book that line up with Scripture, they did everything they could to make their religious beliefs look the same as mine.
Not all false doctrine is vastly different from the truth, that’s why it’s so important to know God and the Bible. THERE ARE SPIRITS that move and speak among the false prophets, teachers, and apostles, but they are not the Spirit of God. “But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast.” (II Cor. 11:12).
The Mormon church has leaders who claim to function as the original twelve apostles of the Bible, that’s how they justify their “new revelations” and constant rewriting of their own false scriptures. “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (II Cor. 11:14-15).
This is the backstory of the birth of Mormonism, Joseph Smith claims to have encountered “two angels of light” who professed to be God and Jesus Christ. It’s sparked a religion that has consistently changed their doctrine to suit what society desires through “new revelation” of their false prophet. If you know God, you know His Word is enough, His Word is complete, and His Word does not change. Do not be deceived by false teachers and false prophets.
