Mormonism Pt. 3: The Gospel of Merit



**EDIT FOR CLARITY: Mormonism does teach that Christ finished paying for the atonement on the cross, but ultimately the Garden is where a bulk of the atonement started and occured** This information was shared by a Mormon after production.

In this episode we compare the Christian gospel with the Mormon gospel. We pull from official Mormon doctrine and use the Bible to show how Mormonism teaches a false gospel. We hope you learn a lot! Pass it on to your friends – Hannah & Esther



Are Mormons Heretics? By Jared Wilson

Mormon scriptures we used:

2 Nephi 25:23 “ For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.”

Alma 11:37 “ And I say unto you again that he cannot save them in their sins; for I cannot deny his word, and he hath said that no unclean thing can inherit the kingdom of heaven; therefore, how can ye be saved, except ye inherit the kingdom of heaven? Therefore, ye cannot be saved in your sins.”

Moroni 10:32 “Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and cdeny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.”

D&C 25:15-16 “Keep my commandments continually, and a crown of righteousness thou shalt receive. And except thou do this, where I am you cannot come. And verily, verily I say unto you, that this is my voice unto all. Amen.”

D&C 58:42-43 “Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more. By this ye may know if a man repenteth of his sins-behold, he will confess them and forsake them.” According to this, true repentance is confessing sin and forsaking it. To forsake sin is to never return to is again–so this mormon scripture says God requires sinless perfectionism in order for him not to forsake us.

D&C 82:7 “go your ways and sin no more; but unto that soul who sinneth shall the former sins return, saith the Lord our God.”
