Golden Plates- Golden Error

   All it took was one lad in 1823 who had a vision of an angel called Moroni as the lad prayed beside his bed. The story goes that the angel told this lad where to find something called golden plates which, according to the story, contained the 'fulness of the everlasting gospel.'
    God had waited all these years to reveal His message to mankind and He needed a lad to show up and discover it.
    It was the Book Of  Mormon. Okay. But is it the word of God?
    "Thou fool, that still say: a Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible.. and because I have spoken one word ye need not suppose I cannot speak another...Wherefore, because that ye have a Bible ye need not suppose that it contains all my words, neither need ye suppose that I have not caused more to be written." II Nephi 29:6,9,10
     Not only the Book of Mormon but .The Pearl Of Great Price.  were added along with Doctrine and Covenants.  added to their sacred books. 
    Orthodoxy has only one book of God- The Bible.
    As for the teachings:
  1. Polytheism
  2. God was once a man
  3. Adam was the angel Michael come to earth.
  4. Polygamy is right
  5. Jesus had three wives
  6. Jesus was produced by actual sexual relations between a resurrected Adam-god and Mary.
  7. Man works his way to heaven
  8. Heaven is on three levels.
  9. Only Mormons get to the third heaven (Celestrial) where God is.
  10. Second heaven  (Terrestrial) is for Christians who did not accept the Mormon message
  11. First level, which is called telestial, is for the heathen people who reject the Gospel (Mormon Gospel)
  12. Salvation is by faith plus works
  13. The dead can be baptized in proxy
  14. The family unit will endue unto the eternal ages, and that those in heaven will produce spiritual children. ( who will be born to Mormons who will be asked to produce many children thus freeing  them to live on earth.)
  15. Celestrial marriage is a ritual that takes place in a Mormon temple and seals the person for eternity.
  16. Adams sin was necessary in order to provide parentage for the spirit children
  17. Man can achieve godhood.
     I  want you to be my follower. Howe else can you be part of the great things yet to come?
     Hang on. We are on a ride.
