We are working to restore audio for both sermons:
There are two cults going door-to-door: Mormonism and Jehovah’s Witnesses. They claim to be Christian religions, but they are not. They claim to be using the Holy Bible, but they are not; they have their own translation, which they want you to follow. Some will even claim that they are following Christ, but from the way they have relegated our Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, they are cults.
MORMONISM (CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF THE LATTER DAY SAINTS) TEACHES:
- God used to be a man on another planet and Mormon members may become gods of their own worlds.1
- · There are many many gods.2
- · The Trinity is three separate Gods.3
- · Entrance into celestial heaven is by the consent of God and the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith.4
- · God has a body of flesh and bones.5
- · God is married and produces spirit babies by having physical relations with his goddess wife.6
- · Jesus, Satan, and all of us are spirit brothers and sisters procreated in a pre-existent spirit life.7
- · God had relations with Mary to make Jesus’ body.8
- · You must shed your own blood for the forgiveness of some sins.9
- · Good works are necessary for the forgiveness of sins.10
Be careful. Rarely will they mention these ‘higher’ doctrines. Therefore, you really don’t know what they are teaching until long after you have joined. Be warned.
THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES TEACH:
- Their church organization is the prophet of God.11
- · Jesus returned invisibly in 1914.12
- · The Holy Spirit is God’s impersonal active force.13
- · Only their church members will be saved.14
- · Jesus was an angel who became a man.15
- · Jesus did not rise from the dead physically.16
- · There is no Trinity.17
- · Good works are necessary for the forgiveness of sins.18
Be careful. Jehovah’s Witnesses will want to begin a home ‘Bible study’ with you. What they really want is for you to join their religion. These groups are non-Christian cults because they deny the true biblical doctrines of Jesus Christ and salvation.
First, Mormonism says Jesus is the brother of the Devil.7 Jehovah’s Witnesses’s teach that he is an angel who became a man.15 These teachings are not biblical.
Second, both these cults erroneously say that in order to be saved you must cooperate with God by doing good works. The Bible says that salvation is a free gift from God.20 The Bible condemns the addition of our works to the finished sacrifice of Jesus.21 Galatians 2:21 says that if salvation comes by works (“if righteousness comes through the Law”), then Jesus died needlessly. Salvation comes by God’s grace through faith alone, not by our works20 which are impure.28 Simply put, they each preach a false message of salvation.
THE HOLY BIBLE TEACHES:
- There is only One God;22
- · God is Spirit;23
- · Jesus’ sacrifice cleanses from all sin;24
- · Jesus is the Only Way to God;25
- · All who receive Jesus as Savior will be saved;26
- · Jesus is God in flesh19 Who rose from the dead in the same body He died in.27
These are some of the things the Christian church has always believed. These two cults, Mormons or Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints and Jehovah’s Witnesses distort them and thus lead many into eternal damnation. Why?
- · Only the Jesus of the Bible saves,
- · not the brother of Satan (Mormonism),
- · not an angel made into a man (Jehovah’s Witnesses).
- · Faith works only when you trust Someone Who is True.
The Mormons or Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints and Jehovah’s Witnesses are good people with great Christian morals, and we love them; but, they are misled.29
They do not know that the True Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ for our sins, and that we receive His forgiveness by faith alone (faith in the True Jesus).
Satan has blinded them.29
Jesus said that if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit.30 That is why this Christian ministry is exposing these cults, so you won’t be deceived.
If you want to be assured of the forgiveness of your sins and have peace with God, then you must realize that you have sinned against God,31 and are separated from Him.32
Then, ask the Lord Jesus Christ into your life; ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and save you. He will.26 He is Savior and Lord and He is as close as the call of your heart. Then read your Holy Bible, go to church, tell others and a pastor of your decision. At least now you know which two not to join. Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Jesus Christ loves you and wants you to follow Him.
