Rather than debating the issue, which we both know to be a false claim by the Mormons. Lets sharpen eachother to the evidences that back our position on the Mormon cult. Position will ultimately not matter.

Hello and yes I would like to sharpen my apologetics at any chance given. I myself believe in the Trinity. In God that came to us in flesh as Christ our Lord. I believe in the Infallible Holy Bible and that Christ rose again. I love and treat all with respect and try to guide them unto the true light of our Savior. The Mormons are a cult. Webster uses this definition. "A religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents." This is true of the Mormon sect of beliefs. They consider there founder Joseph Smith A holy prophet who wrote visions of Christ in the book of Mormon. As Christians we know through the Holy Bible that these visions are soundly debunked. Revelation says that anyone who adds to the words of this book will be cursed. That is not stated directly I interperuted it. So if they assert they are true followers of Christ then they have already cursed themselves. They state that this is book of mormon is another testament of Christ through Smith. We as Christians know these things as false. They believe in the plates of nephi.... Something that cannot even be historically proven. These were given to Joseph Smith. The nephi are a made up people of the mind of a lunatic in Joseph Smith. We can debunk them with there is not actual historical evidence that these peoples existed. "The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible." They just defiled the Bible with this false prophet Smith using his fairy tales to gain power and greed of his followers. He claims there are plates of metals with prophecies and the books of the law of Moses on them that a band of Jews came here from Israel. We know this is false because none of these plates have been found. Joseph Smith translated a book of the Mormons called the Book of Great Price or... The Book of Abraham. Where actually he was translating Egyptian documents of Pagan god's.... Therefore im sure that he was a false prophet an anti christ trying to lead his flock to hell. The book of Mormon is Racist to people of African heritage and that they cannot hold a priesthood. Joe was praying in the woods when he received a vision from God the Father and Jesus. It was revealed to Joe that the church was in apostasy and he was the chosen one to launch a new dispensation. We know this is false because we know that no one can see the true face of God and live as it states in the Bible. God although does come in the form of man in Christ and in that we are saved as Christians his holy blood covers the redeemed. Brigham Young was another patriarch of their church which well he was a ruthless violent man. Little known to most Mormons, Young was a rather rough and ruthless character. In 1857, he commanded Bishop John D. Lee to murder a wagon train of over one hundred helpless non-Mormon immigrants. Twenty years later Lee was convicted and executed by the U.S. Government. Young escaped punishment, and his role in the Mountain Meadows Massacre has escaped the Mormon history books. The Bible declares, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." (Isa. 8:20) However, the Mormon Church claims that other writings, such as the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith's writings are also authoritative. Ill stop here for now. Jesus Christ is the one and only true way to heaven. No Joseph Smith or Brigham Young. Through Christ we are saved. So next time you see a bike rider with a backpack and a name tag with LDS on it tell them about the Real CHRIST. The one that is God in flesh and saved mankind from sin. The one that is coming again for his true people. I pray for all of you to seek the truth in Christ and know that he is the one true Savior for man kind.
