REWRITING THE BIBLE
according to
MORMONISM

Rather than resorting to scripture-bending and other kinds of mental gymnastics to try to make Mormon teachings fit the Bible, why not just rewrite the worst Bible verses that contradict Mormon teachings? Here are some suggestions to start with:

1. "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the second chance." (Heb.9:27)
  "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" (KJV)

2. "...ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there are lot's of them; I know plenty. (Isa.44:8)
  "... ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? Yea there is no God; I know not any. (KJV)

3. "For by grace are ye saved through faith plus works; and that of yourselves: it isn't the gift of God: but really of works, therefore men may boast." (Eph.2:8,9)
  "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (KJV)

4. "And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing... And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live except a young obscure lad in a grove of trees in upstate New York in 1820 A.D. (Ex.33:17, 20)
  "And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing... And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live." (KJV)

5. "Jesus said to him, "The LDS Church will be the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by it." (Jn.14:6)
"Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me." (KJV)

6.  "... thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife... And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said to David, "It's too late for you now! Premeditated murder and adultery can never be forgiven!" (2 Sam.12:9,13)
 "... thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife And David said unto Nathan, I have, sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said to David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die." (KJV)

7. "And the angel answered and said to her, "Your Heavenly Father is going to come down and have a sexual relationship with you; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Lk.1:35)
   "And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall over shadow thee therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.(KJV)

8. "Every man according as the church tell him, so let him give; grudgingly if necessary, for he who is not tithed will be burned at His coming (and also denied a temple recommend). God loves a legalistic giver.(2 Cor.9:7)
'Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver'. (KJV)

9. "Ye are my witnesses, says the Lord, and my servant who I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there were plenty of Gods formed, and there will also be after me." (Isa.43: 10)
`Ye are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant who I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me" (KJV)

10. "God isn't a Spirit.. He has a Spirit. He also has a body of flesh and bones just like we do. ...Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have." (Jn.4:24 and Lk.24:39)
"God is a Spirit: ... Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have" (KJV)

11. "For I am the Lord, I progress and change from time to time. Once I was just a man, but now I'm an exalted man! Once I felt that the blacks shouldn't have the priesthood until after the Second Coming of Christ, but I finally decided to let them have it in A.D. 1978. We've got to bend with the times." (Mal.3:6)
"For I am the Lord, I change not" (KJV)

12. "...even from a long time ago and perhaps to everlasting, thou art God." (Ps.9O:2)
"... even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God." (KJV)

13. "...Does not my power and influence fill heaven and earth, even though I can't? saith the Lord." (Jer.23:24)
"... Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD." (KJV)

14.  "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and went out into the trees and prayed about it, until they received a burning in their bosoms that proved it was all true" (Acts 17:11)
   "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (KJV)

15. "There is a way which seems right to a man, and the end thereof are the ways of life" (Prov.14:12)
"There is a way which seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (KJV)

16. "Believe not that I am not in the Father and the Father not in me? the words that I speak to you I speak not of myself: but the Father that is separate from me, and only one purpose, he doeth the works." (Jn.14:10.)
"Believe not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak to you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwells in me, he doeth the works." (KJV)

17.  "But we are all as a thing that really isn't too bad, and all our righteousnesses are as clean linen and we all do get brighter as a cornet that cometh closer; and our works, like an installment plan, doth bring us nearer and nearer to the third heaven." (Isa.64:6)
"But we are all as an unclean thing and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away" (KJV)

18  "for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to one of three degrees of glory better than what we have here, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to destruction, and just a few sons of perdition find it." (Mat.7:13,14)
" for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it." (KJV)

19 "For there are many Gods, and two mediators between the Gods of this earth and men; Joseph Smith and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." (I Tim.2:5)
    "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (KJV).

20. "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel... By which also ye are saved,... For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ sweat for our sins according to the scriptures"(1 Cor.15: 1-3)
"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel ... By which also ye are saved, ... For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;" (KJV)

21.  "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons, unless you happen to be a black before June, 1978 A.D., or are a woman." (Acts 10:34)
"Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons" (KJV)

22. "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, unless it happens to be coffee or tea or alcoholic..." (Col.2:16)
"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday." (KJV)

23.  "I am Alpha and Omega, ... saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the semi-mighty who can do most things except be everywhere at the same time, create something out of nothing, etc." (Rev.1:8)
"I am Alpha and Omega, ... saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (KJV)
(Of course there is that nasty warning over in Rev.22:19 about what happens to those that alter the words of this book, but after all, it may be "mistranslated" here. On the other hand....)

24.  "... Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, "Repent, have faith in Christ, be baptized by those with proper authority, have the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and keep all the commandments of the Lord, and you shall be saved, and thy house." (Acts 16:30,3 1)
"... Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, and thy house."(KJV)

25. "And have put on the new man, which is renewed in bodily physique after the image of him that created him" (Col.3:10)
"And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge' after the image of him that created him" (KJV)

Has Mormonism rewritten Genesis 1:26, "And man said, Let us make God in our image, after our likeness..."? If you're tired of trying to bend the scriptures, why not just let them speak for themselves?
