Ex Mormon Gives Most Incredible Testimony

Ex Mormon Gives Most Incredible Testimony

This is one of the most incredible testimonies I've ever heard, and such a testimony of how God can change the hearts of those who seek him! A very zealous Mormon goes to Florida for his missions, where he tries to convert Baptists and is instead presented the gospel of Jesus. In this video he explains how he turned from his belief in Mormonism to trusting in the finished work of Christ for his salvation!

Wild Thing's comment.......

God bless this amazing man and his dear family.

You would think the Mormons would be smart enough to think about the person who also hung on a cross next to Jesus....and the "lack of works" that person had. His justification was simply asking Jesus to remember him. Saved by Grace.

Shocking and Impotant Quotes to Know Regarding Joseph Smith and LDS


This quote is nothing less then total shocking and blasphemy!!

Church leaders have instructed “Our salvation is contingent upon our belief in a living prophet and adherence to his word. . . . His words, above those of any other man, ought to be esteemed and considered by the Church as well as the world.” [24] D&C 135:3 suggests that “Joseph Smith . . . has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.”

Brigham Young: “…no man on the earth can say that Jesus lives, and deny, at the same time, my assertion about the Prophet Joseph.”

Ezra Taft Benson: “Like the mission of the Savior, “a lamb slain before the foundation of the world,” Joseph was truly foreordained to his great mission…. I testify to you that Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God…, a God-like prophet of the Lord, a truly noble and great one of all time.”

Thomas Monson asserted in a 2005 General Conference that “Joseph was arrested on trumped up charges.” Verifiable history suggests that he indeed abused religious and governmental authority before destroying the independent press which revealed inconvenient truths.

Now read about William Law and what he had to say................... This man woke up finally to how phony and horrible Joseph Smith was as a leader and as a person.

William Law ......William Law was a successful Canadian who invested in real estate, lumber, and construction. He was quickly appointed as second counselor in Joseph’s presidency but grew uncomfortable with Smith’s secretive practice of polygamy, establishment of a secret theocratic political kingdom (Council of Fifty), and Smith’s possible role in the attempted assassination of Governor Boggs.

William lamented, “The greatest mistake of my [life was my] having anything to do with Mormonism. I feel [it to] be a deep disgrace and never speak of it when I can avoid it. For over 40 years I have been almost entirely silent on the subject and will so continue after this. Accept my kind regards.”

The day following Smith’s murder, Law wrote, “One of Joe Smith’s weakest points was his jealousy of other men. He could not bear to hear other men spoken well of. If there was any praise it must be of him; all adoration & worship must be for him. He would destroy his best friend rather than see him become popular in the eyes of the Church or the people at large. His vanity knew no bounds. He was unscrupulous; no man’s life was safe if he was disposed to hate him. He sat the laws of God and men at defiance. He was naturally base, brutish and corrupt and cruel. He was one of the false prophets spoken of by Christ who would come in sheep’s clothing but inwardly be a ravelling [sic] wolf. His works proved it. One great aim seemed to be to demoralize the world, to give it over to Satan, his master; but God stopped him in his mad career & gave him to his destroyers. He claimed to be a god, whereas he was only a servant of the Devil, and as such met his fate. His wife was about as corrupt as he was.”

Joseph Smith Founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Joseph Smith Founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Devoted members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints honor its founder, Joseph Smith, with saint-like reverence. LDS scripture instructs that “Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it” (D&C 135:3).

As is often the case, however, history reveals a complex figure who differs substantially from what members of the faith are taught from youth. Joseph Smith has evoked wide acclaim from his devotees as well as strong criticism from those who became disillusioned with him. Understanding the context surrounding Joseph Smith and his family prior to his prophetic role will help us better comprehend this polarizing figure. For many believers, their faith relies on the assertion that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. While this essay acknowledges that Joseph likely believed himself to be a visionary seer, we assert that his motivations were vastly more nuanced and complicated.

Problems With The Mormon Church

A follow up to "50 Problems With The Mormon Church." The first video focused primarily on truth claims and the veracity of the Mormon church. This time, the focus is on Mormon morality. Sometimes people claim that the church is a great place to raise a family, regardless of its truth. The issues covered here offer a compelling counterpoint to that belief.

What is the difference between the Bible and the Book of Mormon?

What is the difference between the Bible and the Book of Mormon?


The Bible is the Word of God.

The Bible is not a book but a collection of 66 books, written over a span of 1600 years across 3 continents, by over 40 writers inspired by God in 3 languages yet it has ONE primary theme ( The Glory of God and salvation of mankind ) and zero errors or contradictions. It is scientifically, prophetically, archaeologically, historically and linguistically accurate.

The book of Mormon, however was apparently translated from some mythical “golden plates” that NO-ONE physically saw, from a language that does NOT exist and has no record of EVER existing outside the perverted mind of Joseph smith and there is ZERO evidence for it.


Joseph Smith claimed that he translated the text of the Book of Mormon from gold plates through the Urim and Thummin by the power of the Holy Spirit. The title page of the Book of Mormon published today contains the words “Translated by Joseph Smith.” This is a core belief of his followers.

You will be shocked to learn that the above account did not happen. According to the witnesses present in the room when Joseph Smith was dictating the text of the Book of Mormon, “Joseph Smith would put the seer stone into a hat, and put his face in the hat, drawing it closely around his face to exclude the light.” (quote David Whitmer)

The gold plates were under a cloth or hidden in the woods and were not used directly in the creation process. Other witnesses included Emma Smith, Martin Harris, Oliver Cowdery, Isaac Hale and Michael Morse (Joseph Smith’s brother in law).

These details do not contradict the statements by the 11 witnesses. The unavoidable conclusion is, the Book of Mormon is not a “translation” within the commonly held meaning of that word.

No Archaeology

No person mentioned in the Book of Mormon has ever been identified in the ancient archaeology of the Americas. No place mentioned in that book has ever been located geographically.

The language referenced in the Book of Mormon is “Reformed Egyptian” and no evidence for that language has been found anywhere on the earth. No event mentioned in the Book of Mormon has been confirmed from any objective source.

Many objects mentioned in the Book of Mormon (e.g. steel, coins, wheels, swords, horses, Christian or He

brew artifacts) have not been confirmed with archaeology. Many objects and customs that archaeology confirms did exist during that time period (e.g. obsidian, human sacrifice, dogs as food, adobe brick, terrace farming, hieroglyphics, cotton, tobacco) are not mentioned in the Book of Mormon. In contrast, hundreds of archaeological findings support the accuracy of the Bible.


Archaeologists and researchers who have examined Book of Mormon claims have rejected its validity. Thomas Stuart Ferguson, Dan Vogel, Dee Green, Michael Coe and the Smithsonian Institute have all issued statements denying the historicity of the Book of Mormon.

In 1830, Joseph Smith presented the Book of Mormon to the world, declaring it to be the most correct of any book on earth. It has been promoted for the past 174 years by his followers, not only as a scriptural supplement to the Bible, but also as a literal history of the ancestors of the American Indians.

Joseph Smith taught that Native Americans were actually descendants of Jews who had traveled to the Americas in three migrations; the first at the time of the Tower of Babel, the last two, approximately 600 BC

However, recent DNA analysis of American Indians from more than 150 tribes, both ancient and present-day, reveals that Joseph Smith’s claims have no basis in fact. Of the thousands of Native Americans tested, 99.4% were of North East Asian descent, while the remaining 0.6% were of African and European descent.

No DNA evidence supports Joseph Smith’s assertion that American Indians are of Jewish or Hebrew descent.

Two Invalid Priesthoods

The Bible speaks of three priesthoods: the Aaronic, the Melchizedek and the Royal Priesthood of All Believers.

The Aaronic priesthood consisted of priests and a single high priest. It was instituted by God in the Old Testament to be a mediator between God and man, with the high priest offering sacrifices for the sins of the people. This priesthood was made obsolete with the death of Christ on the cross, since he was the last sacrifice for sin and the new mediator between God and man. Neither the Bible nor church history records the existence of the Aaronic priesthood in the New Testament Christian church. Any attempt to “restore” this priesthood shows contempt for Christ’s sacrifice.

The Melchizedek priesthood was unique. The Bible records it being held by only two people, Melchizedek in the Old Testament and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. No evidence exists of any other person holding this priesthood.

“Every reference in the Bible to a Melchizedek priesthood is in reference to the specific and unique ministry which Jesus Christ alone fulfills as God’s chosen means of salvation for his people.” (Paul Trask)

The Royal priesthood consists of all born-again believers who make up the body of Christ, with Jesus as their great high priest. He is the only high priest for the Christian church. Because he will never die, his high priest status can never be transferred to another. Any attempt to appropriate Christ’s high priest title or ministry to oneself usurps His unique title and function and constitutes blasphemy. Consequently, Joseph Smith’s priesthood system, which includes multiple high priests, is heretical.

Of the three biblical priesthoods, Joseph Smith included in his church the two that are unavailable to Christians – The Aaronic and the Melchizedek.

Tragically, he ignored the only priesthood that is available to Christians, the Royal Priesthood.

Joseph Smith Convicted

In 1826 at Bainbridge, New York, Joseph Smith was arrested, tried and convicted of the crime of “glass looking,” an occult practice similar to crystal ball gazing. This trial was the direct result of Smith’s attempt to find buried treasure for Josiah Stowell, for a fee, with the use of a seer stone.

For many years, followers of Joseph Smith denied the reports of those present at the trial and accused them of being Smith’s enemies. Court documents including a bill of costs from Justice Albert Neely have now been found that confirm that the trial occurred and that Joseph was convicted of the crime of “glass looking.”

The significance of this conviction is more than the fact that Joseph Smith was convicted of a crime. The described use of the seer stone is eerily similar to the method Joseph Smith actually used in creating the Book of Mormon as described herein.
