No... but then I do not have “doctrinal differences” with mormonism.

You don't?

“You don’t?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I used quote marks for a reason - it was to point out that
by using the term “doctrinal differences”, you make is sound
as if we just see some minor things in the Bible differently. I see other mormons on FR try this same tactic.

Mormonism is in conflict with the Bible, which teaches
there is ONE GOD. It is the premise of God’s identity He
first reveals to Israel, in contrast to every other
henotheistic religion surrounding them (mormons are also
henotheistic).

Israel did not have “doctrinal differences” with the Moabites Canaanites and Edomites. They all worshiped
different gods.

For example, the Canaanite pantheon of gods consisted two main gods, with an additional 70 sons who supposedly ruled over the nations of the earth - these sons were each worshiped within a specific region.

Mormons have their great pantheon of gods too - an infinite number and believe they can also become gods. While following the Canaanite pattern of henotheism, they claim to worship just one of those gods - one earth god (henotheism) who in turn has a god he worships.

Israel worshiped THE ONE God who told them that besides Him, there is no other God.

I do not have “doctrinal differences” with mormonism. That
minimizes what God said. His nature is not open to debate.

Christianity and mormonism worship different gods.

The Christian God is neither created nor made, but is eternal and alone as God. Chistians do not believe in a Pantheon of Gods. We believe there is ONE GOD.

Just one.

All that to say our differences are not matters of parsing
small things and seeing esoteric doctrines differently. Our
differences are gigantic and go the the very root of the
identity of God and the Gospel of Grace. That supersedes doctrinal differences.

best,
ampu
