One question at at time 8 apostasy

Larry Love in Center with Beard

The Mormons or LDS faith which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believes that the true church was organized by Jesus but that it was taken off the earth for a time and later restored through angels restoring revelation, apostles, miracles, the gift of speakng in other langages,prophets, priesthood and many other things.

Matthew 24 verses 23 and 24 speaks of false prophets coming and even deceiving the very elect. Acts 20 Men shall arise speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them.

II Thessalonians 2 verese 1 to 4 explains that before the Lord comes again there would be a falling away.

1 Timothy 4 verses 1 to 3 says in the latter day some would depart from the truth

II Timothy 4 verses 3 and 4 says that people would not endure sound doctrine

II Peter 2 verses 1 to 3 says false teachers would be among the people

II Peter 3 verses 3 to 7 says that people would walk after their own lusts in the last days.

Isaiah 60 verse 2 says that darkness will cover the earth and the people

Amos 8 verse 11 says the day would come when the Lord God would send a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.

Then in Acts 3 verses 19 to 21 we read that before the second coming of Jesus there would be a restitution or restoration of all things. Revelation 14 verses 6 and 7 says that the gospel would be brought back to the earth by an angel of God.

The foundation of Gods church is first apostles and prophets Ephesians 2 verses 19 and 20

So many people that are against the church use some of the same scriptures to say that the LDS people have been decieved and that they are listening to a different Gospel. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Gospel is the same gospel that Christ taught.

If the Catholic church was correct and many of the other churches broke off from the Catholics did the Catholic church give them permission to start new churches and the answer is no. If the Catholic church had saved many of the doctrines but had departed from many of the true doctrines and the people left the church could those churches be correct and the answer is no. God did not give them authority to start new churches. If the LDS faith actually had angels come to restore the Church with God´s blessing then the authority is back on the earth and the Church has been restored. Either it is true or it is not true. That is why people spend so much effort trying to find fault with the Church. I have a friend that left the Church years ago and had his records removed although he still is obsessed by reading Mormon books every waking hour of his life and the question is why is he doing this. If it is not true then persue something that you feel is true and put your time and effort into becoming a better person and loving God and your fellowmen. Don´t waste your time trying to prove something wrong.
