  • The problem with religious doctrine in general, is that it takes the DIRECT relationship between you and Jesus partially or wholly out of the picture and replaces it with mans believed truth. Jesus IS the Way, the TRUTH and the Life. If you have no personal relationship with Jesus, you have only man to lean on. Leaders are men and women, including the LDS prophet, and can be and are wrong at times. If you listen to only leaders, you have no relationship with Jesus, and therefore have no relationship with God himself. If your only knowledge of your human father was through your neighbors, do you believe that you would know him, and more importantly would he know you? Men like to prove they are right! THE ANSWER HERE IS THAT YOU SHOULDN'T BE LOOKING FOR THE CORRECT CHURCH, YOU SHOULD AND MUST HAVE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IN ORDER TO GET INTO HEAVEN. Church should only be where we gather to worship Him. Talk to Jesus everyday and see if He doesn't speak back to you in a personal way. Don't rely on hearsay evidence spoken by man to make himself seem right.
  • I always love how a mormon is quick to defend their beliefs and say they arent false, but they have to add that out BIBLE the one wrote thousands of years ago and says in Revelations that who ever adds to or changes it should be destroyed, is incorrect....Ya know your Joseph Smith could of been high on something when he saw all those Angels....and I think it is just funny that after 1800 years God decided to use him to be prophet, why wouldnt he use someone who hadnt had so many run ins with the law and the Masons.....I will pray for every mormon out there.....I know you all surely have not studied mormonism or you would see something wrong with it!
  • no they dont we believe that the other religions have truths that some are construed or have missing parts but we certainly dont believe that they are based on false doctrine
  • Back to the original question. Yes, Mormons believe that all other religions are based on false doctrine. As part of their temple endowment ceremony, a drama is performed (or played as a film) during which a clergyman representing a Christian minister accompanies the Devil in trying to deceive Adam and Eve. The "false" minister recites a take-off of the 3rd century Nicean creed, in a mocking and sarcastic tone, which Mormon Adam then denounces as pure crap, preferring to embrace the whole strange Mormon concept instead. In earlier times the congregation was encouraged to boo and hiss at this "false minister". In the Doctrines And Covenants there are constant references to "the great and abominable church"- possibly meaning Catholicism, but after that little endowment pantomime it could just as well mean any conventional religion. Charming. I am a staunch lapsed Catholic, and I admit that while our profession of faith does mention "one holy Catholic and apostolic church", one must remember that the word "catholic" actually means "universal". I would never subscribe to a faith who is so specifically condemning and rude about others. Hi, all you LDS out there. Sorry for blabbing about part of your "secret" endowment ceremony, but the Bible condemns secrecy, and Jesus stated loudly during his arrest that He never preached anything in secret. If you want people to be less suspicious of you, be more up front about your actual doctrines. Do not hide your light under the bushel of cultishness. What have you got to be ashamed of? Quite a bit, it would seem.
  • The LDS Church and their scriptures have been changed so drastically over the 175 years; it's not even the same religion. Book of Commandments in 1833, revised to Doctrine and Covenants, Book of Mormon published in 1830, 35 truthfully I don't know how many times but over 4000 changes. Stuff was deleted because most of JS's prophesies didn't come true. His first vision wasn't even recorded until, not sure maybe 1840 or so, and there are about 7 different versions of it. First he claims to see an angle, then two, then someone; I believe it was Brigham Young changed it to heavenly father and Jesus. I can go on, if you want all the information just Google it, some sites have original scanned documents to prove it the IRR, religious research website's pretty good they have the money to buy a $75,000 Book of Commandments.
  • http://www.irr.org/mit/boc/ check it out, there are many more changes then just this, the LDS History had been changed as well.
  • Pretty much all religions believe that to be true.
  • Religion of any kind is nothing more than men trying to understand God. You seek but you do not find,for you look outwardly to the flesh instead of inward to the spirit. Love God, Love your neighbor, do not become separated by the frailties and falsehoods of your organized religions but seek the truth of the spirit which lives within each of you who have accepted our Lord Jesus. For the deceit of mens traditions only serve to lead you astray from the true path. Their is no word or truth in the words of men only in the word of The Christ himself. For my brother John has said that in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the Word became flesh. This same Jesus is the true path, The narrow path and the only path to salvation. Be not decieved my brothers as we approach the coming days for it is in this day of religious confusion that the Lord shall make known his Truth.Seek the truth in the Christ and leave behind the religion of man and move forward into a greater revelation of God's understanding.
  • New change in the Book of Mormon.....wow, I am shocked lol.
  • Not entirely. Joseph Smith taught and the missionaries teach today, that all faiths have some portion of truth but only in the Mormon faith is that truth completely revealed and understood to it's highest degree possible by Heavenly Father's children.
  • Isn't that what all religions believe? Isn't that the reason why there is so much religious strife? Each religion thinks it is "the one true way"..well, what does that mean to you? That all the others are not "the one true way". Mormonism is not unique..all religions feel they know the truth, they are the best, they are the only ones, god talks only to them, and on and on and on and on! :(
  • Absolutly not!!!! We believe that their is good and some truth in all church's.
  • Don't know that answer. But a Jew would say that all Christianity is not just based on false doctrine but is completely false doctrine and Jesus was a heretic and ultimate fake as he is claimed to be a "begotten son of god" who has no equals, no gods under him and because he is immortal does not need a son to take over for him.
  • Short answer: Yes. Despite the truths other religions have they don't have the stuff needed to return to live w/ God. Mormons do. In recounting his First Vision Joseph Smith said: "My object in going to inquire of the Lord was to know which of all the sects was right, that I might know which to join. No sooner, therefore, did I get possession of myself, so as to be able to speak, than I asked the Personages who stood above me in the light, which of all the sects was right (for at this time it had never entered into my heart that all were wrong)—and which I should join. I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.” This is the competitive advantage that Mormons claim. There was an apostasy from truth. Churches have some truth but only the LDS Church has what you need to live with God after this life. Only Mormons have the divine authority and all the true doctrines to get you to the Celestial Kingdom. Some may soft sell this idea to you but that's essentially it. Or at least that's what I was taught on my LDS mission.
  • Mormons believe that the bible was not translated correctly, in other words you can't trust the bible....so I would say that Mormons believe that all Christians only have part of the truth.
  • Isn't it wonderful how religion helps bring people together? Not...
  • Isn't religion great?!
  • No, they were based on sound doctrine. But the Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) has the constant attention of those authorized by God to teach in his name and weed out error and false doctrine before it can take root and grow strong. Other religions do not have that advantage.
  • Do you about your religion? ;-)
  • Not until they've had their morning coffee! How could other religions have true doctrines? No magic undies.
  • Actually, to be more correct, we believe all other Churches are based on true doctrines, which are simply misinterpreted, which then makes their beliefs false. Most all of their beliefs come from the Bible, but because they do not understand them correctly, much false doctrine gets taught. But not everything they teach is false, but they do not know which is which. From the days of Adam, through the New Testament, God has always spoken through a living Prophet, when He communicates with mankind on the earth. He has never spoken to individuals, as most Churches claim today. When the Apostles were removed from the Church, there has not been any communication from God until He and His Son visited Joseph Smith in 1820. And 10 years later(April 6,1830) He restored the true Church back to the earth. Just look around you, it is clear that God cannot be speaking to every Church! God is a God of order, not of confusion...whew4
  • It would be closer to the truth to say that we believe all of them have false doctrines in their foundations.
  • I would agree. They have the wrong peceptions about other faiths.
  • no i dont believe that i am a Pentecostal christian and i was talking to some Mormons a while back and they believe ALMOST i said ALMOST the same as we do. that is what little i spoke with them. so if they do im sorry for mis judging im just giving them the benefit of da doubt dats all
  • Yes. The one key doctrine all other religions teach that is false is that they have authority from God to act in his name. Beside this, any other doctrinal question is insignificant.
  • I found this about their position about other Christian religion: "Modern Mormonism, Christian ecumenism, and interfaith activities: Presently, Latter Day Saints typically believe that most traditional Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant adherents have much truth, and strong faith in Christ, which is essential for their salvation. They also believe that most of these people will have the opportunity to accept the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ prior to the "final judgment," and that all that truly have faith in Christ will be "saved" or possibly even exalted. Mormons--as contrasted with mainstream Christians--believe that differences between the doctrine of the Trinity and some Latter Day Saint conceptions of the Godhead are relatively minor and can be supported by biblical scripture, ante-Nicean tradition, similar beliefs in some protestant churches and modern revelation. However it remains true that none of the LDS churches accept the baptisms of mainstream Christian denominations as valid, though most Christian denominations do accept each other's baptisms. And Mormon missionaries include mainstream Christians indiscriminately in their proselytization efforts, seeking to convince them that some of their core beliefs are false and persuade them that acceptance of Mormon beliefs is necessary. - Ecumenical and interfaith efforts by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: Brigham Young, the leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the majority of Mormons after Smith's death, also sounded a conciliatory tone, saying, "Some who call themselves Christians are very tenacious with regard to the Universalians, yet the latter possess many excellent ideas and good truths. Have the Catholics? Yes, a great many very excellent truths. Have the Protestants? Yes, from first to last. Has the infidel? Yes, he has a good deal of truth; and truth is all over the earth." (Discourses of Brigham Young, pg 10). In effect this showed that Brigham Young considered that other religions possessed some knowledge of truth. He obviously considered truths found within the main Christian churches to be comparable to the truths found with 'the infidel' (presumably other, non-Christian religions) in this regard. The overriding principal that Young sought to teach is that truth is found everywhere and the LDS recognized this fact. In the last several decades, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been making a sustained effort to demonstrate the prominence of Jesus Christ in the church. These efforts have included adding the subtitle "Another Testament of Jesus Christ" to The Book of Mormon and recently re-branding of the church's official logo to place more emphasis on the phrase "The Church of Jesus Christ." - Ecumenical and interfaith efforts by the Community of Christ: More so than The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Community of Christ has made dramatic efforts to reconcile its doctrines with mainstream Christianity, and to appear more orthodox to other Christians."

  • No!! They are based on true doctrine! You have to ask yourself where all these 'other' religions and beliefs came from. Well following the 'story' that is accepted by the LDS Church God created the earth, placed Adam and Eve on the earth, gave them commandments or what we call 'religion' and every other man or woman, belief, doctrine, etc must stem from that. That's not to say 'beliefs' have changed just that their origins or 'base' remain founded on a 'true' doctrine.
  • The answer to your question isn't black-and-white. We believe that God has given truth and wisdom to many religions (see Alma 29:8) through inspired people, though not prophets. To name a few examples, we have Martin Luther, John Calvin, Muhammad, Buddha, and Confucius. While we have doctrinal disagreements with these people, we acknowledge their contributions and appreciate the Christian martyrs who made the Holy Bible available to us. We do believe on the other hand that some churches have been misled by false doctrine. One major example the Nicean Creed, which was not written by prophets of God but nevertheless has heavily influenced how some churches see the nature of God. We as a church don't believe that other religions are based on false doctrine. The LDS Church adds on to people's knowledge and beliefs that they already have. You can talk to an LDS representative on mormon.org and ask them questions.
  • Yes, this is in no way an acceptance of Mormonism though. This is a mind control cult, no different than Heavens Gate or Jehovah's Witnesses.
  • No, Mormons do NOT believe that all other religions are based on false doctrine. They believe that elements of the truth can be found in a number of faiths. The do believe that the most truth is to be found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormons do not condemn others to hell for not believing as they do, which sets them apart from some denominations. But they do believe that the greatest and highest blessings in eternity require accepting what they believe to be the restored church and living faithfully for the duration of their lives. All mankind, of whatever belief, will be rewarded according to their willingness to accept Christ and come unto Him, whether it be in this life or the next, prior to the final judgment.
  • Yes they do. I was a Mormon and they believe that all other religions are falsely advertised. most Mormons think that they are all humble when in fact they are the most corrupt people in the world! and i have read the book of Mormon and actually Mormonism is based off of a fraud. Joseph Smith the founder of the religion was actually a con artist and he created this religion as a fraud to get others money....So Mormon doctrine is based off of lies. Mormons believe that the "holy spirit" talks too them and that the spirit has manifested unto them that this religion is the true religion and all others are false.
