The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons)
The purpose of this page is not to bash members of the LDS church or imply that they are bad. However, they have some beliefs that are quite different from orthodox Christianity and the teachings of the Bible. For example:
- Heavens and Earth Were Created by a Council of Gods
- Obedient Humans Can Become Gods
- New Gods Are Created Through Celestial Procreation
The following information is presented to show that Mormon doctrines are not supported by the Bible, or even the officially-recognized Mormon scriptures. I have purposefully chosen to present only scriptural and scientific errors in the Mormon doctrines and not attack Mormon leadership or actions from the past. The LDS church attacked Christianity first, so this is merely a defense against LDS claims of Christian apostasy. If you find any errors in any of this information, please let me know.

The Smithsonian's statement is available directly from them by writing the address listed on the statement. A mere mention of the Book of Mormon will cause them to send the statement to you.
