Download and read online What Do Mormons Really Believe in PDF and EPUB Mormons say they are Christians, but are their claims true? Are the differences minimal? Authors Ankerberg and Weldon go beyond the seeming similarities to look candidly at the Mormon teachings that are clearly incompatible with orthodox Christianity, asking questions such as: -- Was God ever a man? -- Were Jesus and Lucifer brothers? -- Is Scripture still being written? -- Are we saved by what we do? -- Are there "levels" of heavenly glory? In clarifying the meanings of terms Mormons use and their views on the Bible, Ankerberg and Weldon reveal the chasm between Mormonism and traditional Christianity. This clear, well-written guide equips readers to use the truths of God's Word to defend the faith.

Download and read online Your Study of the New Testament Made Easier Part 2 in PDF and EPUB New Cover; - the words and works of Christ's apostles following His resurrection become clear through in-verse notes and powerful quotes from LDS leaders and scholars. - This volume is a companion to the best-selling Part 1: the Gospels. Noted teacher and gospel scholar, David J. Ridges, makes Acts through Revelation come alive in the New Testament Made Easier, Part 2. In-the-verse notes provide a unique teaching tool which allows you to read the complete King James Bible text of Acts through Revelation while, at the same time, being taught the meaning of difficult Bible words and phrases, symbolism, doctrine, culture and setting. Occasional notes between the verses clarify and alert you to major concepts and messages. - Quickly gain a basic understanding of these scriptures as you read Acts through Revelation with the help of explanatory notes, between and within verses. Example: Romans 6:6-7. Note: In verse 6, next, Paul uses a very strong word to describe the effort sometimes needed on our part to repent of sins. He uses the word crucify. This implies that some sins require much pain and godly sorrow in the repentance process. Indeed, changing friends, being cut off from family, going through withdrawals from chemical dependency, confessing serious sin to the bishop, etc., can be painful, but walking in newness of life (verse 4) makes it far more than worthwhile to crucify our sins. 6. Knowing this, that our old man (our old lifestyle) is crucified with him (Christ), that the body of sin (our past sins) might be destroyed, that henceforth (from now on) we should not serve sin. 7. for he that is dead (JST He that is dead to sin) is freed from sin. - Transfer these notes into your own scriptures to help now as well as in the future. - Quickly get help for a specific verse or chapter. - Review for a lesson, talk or family night discussion.

Download and read online Moroni in PDF and EPUB I exhort you to remember these things, for the time speedily cometh that ye shall know that I lie not, for ye shall see me at the bar of God; and the Lord God will say unto you: Did I not declare my words unto you, which were written by this man, like as one crying from the dead, yea even as one speaking out of the dust? - Moroni 10: 27 If Moroni's only role had been to officiate as prophet and seer during the final years of a once-mighty civilization, that alone would set him apart as a valiant and powerful servant of the Lord. But Moroni's ministry goes on today as a messenger for our time. Moroni's life and teachings, as well as his role in bringing forth the gospel of Jesus Christ, are worthy of careful study. This book will aid you as you come to know more about the teachings of this prophet who now reigns in heaven and still cares for all those working toward eternal life.
