According to Mormon teachings, the Mormon Jesus is the brother of all men on earth and also the brother of Lucifer and not the Jesus “incarnate” who means God came to earth as a man as the Bible plainly states. (Matt. 1:23) The Mormon teaching that Jesus and Satan are brothers is based on their concept of God being the Father of all pre-existent spirits. This idea has been part of Mormon teaching from the time of Joseph Smith and continues today.
In the Discourses of Mormon Brigham Young, on Pg.53-54, he states that Lucifer is the second son, the one known as “Son of the Morning.”
“Who will redeem the earth, who will go forth and make the sacrifice for the earth and all things it contains?” The Eldest Son said: “Here am I”; and then he added, “Send me.” But the second one, which was “Lucifer, Son of the Morning,” said, “Lord, here am I, send me, I will redeem every son and daughter of Adam and Eve that lives on the earth, or that ever goes on the earth.”
Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, Pg.67, AUTHOR OF SALVATION
“Thus when the Father presented his own plan in the pre-existent council, he asked for volunteers from whom he could choose a Redeemer to be born into mortality as the Son of God. Lucifer offered to become the Son of God on condition that the terms of the Father’s plan were modified to deny men their agency and to heap inordinate reward upon the one working out the redemption. Christ, on the other hand, accepted the Father’s plan in full, saying, “Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever.” Our Lord was then foreordained to a mission which in due course he fulfilled, which mission enabled him to make salvation available to all men. (Moses 4:1-4; Abra. 3:22-28.)”
Here is what God’s Word says:
John 1:14, ” And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
John 1:18, “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.”
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:18, ” He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Hebrews 11:17, “By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,”
1John 4:9, “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.”
The above scriptures seriously contradict Mormon teachings concerning who Jesus Christ is.
As previously noted, Mormon teaching state that Jesus married several Marys of the New Testament. For example, Orson Hyde, the Mormon Apostle said, “We say it was Jesus Christ who was married in the marriage of Cana of Galilee.” (Journal of Discourses, Vol. 2, page 80)
Brigham Young contradicted God’s word as recorded in Luke 1:35 and said, “When the Virgin Mary conceived the Child Jesus…He was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. And who is His father? He is the first of the human family.” (Journal of Discourses, Pages 50-51).
However, the Word of God says: “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35) “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
Mormon teachings also state that Jesus Christ suffered for sin in the Garden of Gethsemane when He sweated “as it were” great drops of blood and completely avoid the Biblical teaching of Christ’s atonement for sin being accomplished on the Cross. However, the Bible clearly teaches that the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ was done on the cross. For example:
1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
Ephesians 2:16 “And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.”
Colossians 1:20 “And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”
Colossians 2:14 “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.”
Note the following quote from, “What Mormons Think of Christ.”(Mormon Publication pages 32-34:
“Christians speak often of the blood of Christ and its cleansing power. Much is believed and taught on this subject, however, it is utter nonsense and so palpably false that to believe it is to lose one’s salvation.” It goes further to say that salvation is conditional on faith, and repentance, and baptism and keeping the commands of God. ”
It is true that Christians do speak much of the blood of Christ because that is what the Bible says. Note the emphasis the Bible places on the blood of Christ:
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)
“How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrew 9:14)
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,” (Revelation 1:5)
The rejection of this Biblical truth by the Mormon Church again shows it is not a Christian church and its teachings are contrary to God’s word.
