We covered a lot of ground in this conversation with our dear LDS friend John. First, we discussed who Jesus Christ is in Mormonism, how LDS link Jesus Christ to Joseph Smith as part of their salvation plan. Next, we discussed Joseph Smith’s claim to be a prophet and contrasted it with Hebrews’ claim that we don’t need prophets today, after the coming of Christ (Heb 1:1-2).
We discussed Joseph Smith’s character, how his polygamy directly violated God’s standards for morality, and how Mormon temple rituals do not conform to God’s standards in the Bible. Finally, we discussed LDS apostles and how most of them are not qualified to serve as Christ’s true apostles because they have never seen Christ (1 Corinthians 9:1).
