Coming very soon: Mormonism 101

“The new revised and expanded version of Mormonism 101 by Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson will be a great help to Christians who are witnessing to Mormons. It is well documented and clearly shows the difference between Mormonism and Christianity in a factual way without belittling or demeaning Mormon people. It discusses issues that are important to both Mormons and Christians and clarifies Christian doctrines that have been distorted by Mormonism. Mormons who read this book will better understand why biblical Christians don’t accept Mormonism as part of orthodox Christianity. I strongly recommend Mormonism 101 to both Christians and Mormons who really want understand each other.”

—Marvin W. Cowan, missionary, Missions Door

Removing the “Doctrine” out of the Doctrine and Covenants

Removing the “Doctrine” out of the Doctrine and Covenants

By Bill McKeever

The following article was taken from the November/Decmeber 2014 issue of Mormonism Researched, available for free upon request (one-year subscription).

In the “Explanatory Introduction” to the Doctrine and Covenants, the book is described as

Modalism in the Book of Mormon

Does the Book of Mormon teach a Trinitarian concept of God? Some have assumed so because certain verses taken separately do seem to use Trinitarian language. However, taken as a whole, the Book of Mormon lends itself more to a modalistic understanding of God rather than Trinitarian. Modalism is an old heresy that attempts to defend monotheism, but does so at the expense of “confounding the persons” within the godhead. 

Gospel Topics Essay: Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo

On October 22, 2014, the LDS Church published another "Gospel Topics" essay titled "Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo." There were a number of admissions made. However, all the facts were not included to give a complete picture. The information contained within should be disconcerting for any faithful Latter-day Saint, as history doesn't lie. A 12-part Viewpoint on Mormonism series begins November 10, 2014.

Utah needs more church planters, especially in the rural parts of the state

The number of quality Christian churches for people to attend in the state of Utah is deficient. Some people in the rural parts of the state have to go many miles to find a biblically-centered church to attend. Therefore, those who are considering church planting ought to consider coming to Utah and finding a town or city that desperately needs a Christian presence.
