MG-05 – Is the Book of Mormon Against Mormonism?

Did you know the Book of Mormon which Joseph Smith claimed is the “most correct of any book of earth” and the “keystone” of the Mormon religion does not contain any of the unique doctrines of Mormonism?

Examples of Key Mormon Doctrines NOT taught in the Book of Mormon are:

1.) The Spirit-World, Pre-existence, or Premortal life.

2.) The 3 Kingdoms of Heaven: the Telestial Kingdom, the Terrestrial Kingdom and the Celestial Kingdom.

3.) Marriage for time and eternity.

4.) Baptism for the Dead, a second chance after death in Paradise or the Spirit Prison.  (Note: The Book of Mormon argues against this teaching at Alma 34:32-35 when it claims that this life is the only life we have to repent and that there is no second chance after you die.)

5.) God was once a man and men can become gods. Not in the Book of Mormon. (Note: The Book of Mormon teaches the opposite at Moroni 8:18 where it says: “For I know that God is not a partial God, neither a changeable being; but he is unchangeable from all eternity to all eternity.”)

6.) The Father, the Son and Holy Ghost are three separate gods. Here again the Book of Mormon teaches clearly the Trinity at 2 Nephi 31:21: “And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen.”

If you get the character of God wrong, you get everything wrong.
