That The Mormons Are Right About A Latter-Day Revelation?
By: Gary Colley
Many have claimed to be latter-day prophets with latter-day revelations. But in reality, according to the Bible there are none! The apostles were guided into "ALL TRUTH," and when the apostles finished writing the New Testament no more revelation would be forthcoming (John 16:13,
Matthew 10:19-20). Their writing "given by inspiration of God" is given that "the man of God may be perfect, THROUGHLY FURNISHED unto all good works" (II Timothy 3:16-17). Peter said concerning the New Testament, that God "hath given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness (II Peter 1:3). James wrote the universal truth about the "PERFECT (complete GC) LAW OF LIBERTY" stating that the "doer of the work" prescribed therein "shall be blessed in his deed" (James 1:25). Jesus dictated that John should write, " . . If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city . . ." (Revelation 22:18-19). These verses would forbid and condemn the founders of new religions, who have claimed the new revelations of Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnessesim, Christian Scienceism, and Seventh Day Adventism. For these reasons no one should follow or be a part of these false teachers and their "revelations." The recent comments of brother
I. D. Byars, should be considered closely: "It is a sad commentary on the Christians in this great State of Tennessee, in which Christianity plays so much a part in the lives of most of its citizens, that a Non-Christian religious institution such as the Mormon Temple is now being allowed to be established within its borders. Mormons, by their own acclamation, are not Christians, taking their name from an imaginary angel, a fanaticism through the eyes of a young fifteen year old lad by the name of Joseph Smith who claims that he saw an angel by the name of 'Moroni' which is no where recorded in God's Holy Word. We, as Christians, lovers of God's Word, have failed in that we have not sufficiently taught against these false teachings, that Mormons refuse the Word of God, that they have written their own bible, the Book of Mormon, which is far from the Holy Word of God, and are now trying to spread this doctrine of the devil in this area."
