Jerry Johnson does an excellent job in illustrating the reality that Mormonism is not Christian and that Joseph Smith created the entire religion in the video below. We need to restate this again and again with the ascendence of Mitt Romney to the GOP nomination. While many of us support Romney politically, we in no way support his religion or call him “brother.” Mormonism is not Christianity and we are not spiritual brothers in Christ. Mormonism is antithetical to Christianity and Smith was one of many antichrists that have existed throughout history (remember, an antichrist is anyone who puts themselves in the place of Christ, or adds to His gospel.) Remember what the Apostle John wrote in his first letter:
1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
The purpose of this call to evangelical Christians and leaders is two-fold:
- To protect the purity and integrity of the Biblical Gospel.
- To seize the opportunity to educate the America Public and Christians to the fundamental differences between historic Christian faith and that of the Latter-day Saints (Mormons).
While social and political causes are a vital and important part of the Church’s responsibilities, we believe that our primary function as Christians, both collectively and individually, is to preach and defend the Lord Jesus and His Gospel, as He is defined in the Bible, and has been affirmed in the historic Christian Church, its Councils and Creeds.
In our postmodern era, Christians are taught to believe that truth is relative and sincerity is more important than accuracy. However, we believe that the good news of the gospel – justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone – could be compromised if Mr. Romney receives unqualified public endorsements from Christian leaders, their ministries or organizations, thereby potentially confusing the evangelical Gospel with the soteriology (false gospel) of the Mormon Religion.
It is our contention that the general population should not be left with any uncertainty whether the theological cult1 of which Mitt Romney is a faithful member, namely The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), and historic evangelical Christianity are one and the same faith.
This we adamantly deny!
