That remains to be seen as we are not before the judgment bar of God quite yet. Until then, have you given the LDS (Mormon as you wish to continue to call them) faith and doctrine, including the Book of Mormon, the same level of devoted study, pondering and prayer as you have given the Bible. There are millions of LDS members who have given the same devoted study, pondering and prayer to both the Book of Mormon and the Bible who can say that both volumes are Holy Writ and the Word of God.

How do you determine the truth of such a situation? Have you studied, pondered and prayed to God the Father through the Son, Jesus Christ, for an answer to be given to you by God the Holy Spirit to know the truth of such things? That is how I would approach your straw man to find the truth.

First of all, Mormon was a prophet from the Book of Mormon; actually the primary prophet/historian who compiled the Book of Mormon based on all the history and teachings of his people. Mormons do not particularly care to be called by that moniker because they do not worship Mormon; they worship God the Father, through the Son of God, Jesus Christ, and seek for divine influence through the Holy Spirit, or as LDS members reference as the Holy Ghost. LDS doctrine does teach that the Savior, Jesus Christ, did indeed pay the price of all sin in the Garden of Gathesemene, a price so great in its eternal significance and weight, that if he did not have the immortal physical characteristics of his literal Father, God the Father, his life would have succumbed to the pressure of the burden. But instead of succumbing to such mortal weakness, he bled great drops of blood for all mankind from every pore. Jesus Christ was also able to lay down his life because of the physical weakness he inherited from his mother, the Virgin Mary, a women who is likely to know no peer here with the possible exception of Eve, the mother of all mankind. As such, Jesus Christ was able to die for us on the cross and be raised again to a perfected resurrected body by God the Father to overcome death for all as well. How is this not the same as what other Christians believe to be the mission and gift from God to mankind?

Scott4616, what have you efforts have you gone to that prove to you that the Bible is the Word of God? In order to really determine that the Mormon faith and the Book of Mormon and any other book the Mormon faith claims to be scripture, shouldn't you also follow the same diligence of effort to find your own answer? What are you afraid of? If it is false, will not God make that known unto you in the same manner that God made it known unto you that the Bible was His Word? Or are you afraid your answer received will be that these Mormon scriptures are also His Word? I always find it amazing that people demand Mormons prove to them that their scripture and gospel is true; but that is not the way it works. One cannot pass on this kind of "proof" to another. The other must seek for that "proof" on their own and in all honesty, it must be with just as diligent an intent as was used to seek the "proof" that the Bible is true. If you apply 1 Cor. 2:11 to finding the truth about these things, then you have your "proof" but I find it incredulous for you or anyone to criticize someone who makes the same claim to have received the truth by means of "the Spirit of God" that may be contrary to your understanding.

Linda, you obviously do not know what you are talking about. Mormons do believe in the Trinity. Mormons prefer to reference the Trinity as the Godhead, which is made up of three individuals, each a God, as identified in Article of Faith #1, stating Mormons "believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." Mormons do believe that Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God. Mormons do believe that Mary was a virgin when she conceived and remained a virgin till the birth of her divine son. Mormons do not prefer to call themselves Mormons; that is a moniker given to them by those outside their faith. Their true name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If they didn't wish to be called Christians, why would they wish to so prominently have His name on every chapel and temple building?
