Mormon Church Admits Founder's Polygamy
In a recent essay on its web site, the Mormon Church has acknowledged publicly that its founder was a polygamist who “married” a 14-year-old girl as well as other men’s wives (“Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo,” ids.org. n.d.). In spite of this admission, the essay as a whole is a “pack of lies.” It claims, for example, that God commanded Old Testament patriarchs and kings to enter into plural marriages, which He certainly did not. God’s will for marriage was made clear at the beginning of man’s history in Genesis 2 when He gave Adam one wife. The first polygamist was rebel Lamech, the son of the first murderer (Gen. 4:16-19). The Lord Jesus settled this issue when He taught that God’s will for marriage is seen in Genesis 2. “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Mat. 19:4-6). Mormonism’s founder was a fake, a liar, a lazy pursuer of get-rich-quick schemes, and a philanderer. “Evangelicals” who are calling for dialogue with, ecumenical relations with, and joint social-justice projects with Mormonism are the blind leading the blind.
