Mormonism and Islam have one thing in common: both allege angels gave them their holy texts.
That shouldn’t surprise Christians. Fallen angels are still angels, after all.
2 Corinthians 11:13-1413 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Mormons, or members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, claim to be apostles of Christ. They are not. Their founders were scheisters who gobbled up land, possessions and property. None of its prophecies or geographical/archaeological descriptions have proven true [in fact, they’ve been proven otherwise] and it’s clear that the Book of Mormon was plagiarized from another fellow’s fictional work.
Islam claims that Jesus was a prophet [and no more] and claimm to honor Him in doing so. They have to claim that the Bible was warped by the disciples to do so for it is clear from the Biblical record that Jesus claimed to be equal with God. It was founded in conquest and bloodshed. The only miracle Muhammed could offer up was “the miracle of the Qur’an,” but the only miracle therein is that people have actually been dumb enough to believe it. It also contains inaccuracies like the claim that the sun sets in a puddle of mud. And don’t forget the “satanic verses” that allowed the veneration of three specific idols, but was then changed and the verses omitted from the original. Why? Muhammed said that satan had deceived him and put the verses in without his knowledge. Wow. How much else did ol’ Slewfoot get in there?
In contrast, Jesus performed numerous miracles to validate His claims, even raising people from the dead. The Jews did not deny His miracles but claimed he was using sorcery. He vindicated His claim to be God by rising from the dead. He did not propogate His Way by war or trickery. He did not gobble up land and possessions. He had to pay tribute to Caesar by catching a fish with a coin in its mouth [Judas Iscariot held the purse and stole from it] and stated that, “The Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” He inspired love and faith in both friends and enemies. The Bible that records Him is validated by nonbiblical sources. It stands correct in all it records geographically, historically and archaeologically and has never yet been refuted.
