For if someone comes and proclaims another
Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you
receive a different spirit from the one you received,
or if you accept a different gospel from the one you
accepted, you put up with it readily enough.

2 Corinthians 11:4

QUESTIONS TO ASK MORMONS

•WHY ARE THERE NO MAPS IN THE


BOOK OF MORMON?

•WHY IS THERE NO EVIDENCE FOR


THE BOOK OF MORMON?
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MORONI 8:18?

These are incomprehensible ideas to


some, but they are simple. It is the first principle of the
Gospel to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to
know that we may converse with him as one man converses
with another, and that ; yea, that
God the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as
Jesus Christ himself did, and I will show it from the Bible”

(Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp.345-346. Italics in original).


QUESTIONS TO ASK MORMONS
• DO YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD WAS ONCE A SINFUL MAN?
• DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE MANY GODS?
Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that
ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there
was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. Isaiah 43:10
Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am
the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6
Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have
declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is
no God; I know not any. Isaiah 44:8
And Zeezrom said unto him: Thou sayest there is a true and living God?And Amulek said:
Yea, there is a true and living God. Now Zeezrom said: Is there more than one God?And
he answered, No. ALMA 11:26-29
