Lee Baker's Questions for Mormons

1-Minute Video Clips from "Bishop" Lee's Mainstream Mormonism Series

Is Jesus the Spirit Brother of Satan or is He God?

Former Mormon Bishop Lee & Kathy Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Is Jesus the Spirit Brother of Satan or is He God Himself? Mormonism teaches that in the spirit world, prior to human being born on this earth, Jesus Christ, Lucifer and all of us were born in a spirit world to God and one of his spirit wives. As such, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that Jesus is the spirit brother of Satan and all of us. This is a far cry from Biblical Christianity that teaches that Jesus is God, the Creator of ALL things including Lucifer and his spirit brothers (the demons). Jesus is Lucifer's Creator, He is not his spirit brother. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "Is Jesus Christ, Your Savior or Brother?". You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Did Jesus Compete with Satan to Become Savior of the World?

Former Mormon Bishop Lee & Kathy Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Do you believe that Jesus and Lucifer (Satan) competed against each other for the position of Savior? LDS Church Doctrine teaches that Jesus and Lucifer (a.k.a Satan) are literal spirit brothers born in a spirit world to an exalted mother and father, who Mormons call God the Father and Heavenly Mother. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that Jesus and Satan jockeyed for the position of Redeemer with Lucifer presenting a plan to save the world after Jesus presented his plan. According to Mormon Scripture, God chose Jesus' plan over Lucifer's plan, so Lucifer became angry and fell from heaven, taking 1/3 of the spirit sons with him to become Satan and his demons. This teaching is completely contrary to Christian doctrine and Biblical teaching which teaches that Jesus is God who created all things, including Satan (John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:15-19). Satan is not Jesus' spirit brother, nor did Satan fall for trying to become "Savior of the world." Rather, the Bible teaches that Satan fell for trying to exalt himself to become "like" God (Isaiah 14:12-14), which is the very lie Satan told Eve, when she ate the forbidden fruit to become "as gods" (Genesis 3:5). This lie of Satan is continually promoted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Lorenzo Snow couplet "“As man now is, God once was: “As God now is, man may be." This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "Jesus, Not Joseph, is the Reason for the Season". You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Do your friends outside the Mormon Church know more Mormonism than you? Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker describes what his non-Mormon friends thought of him when he was Mormon for 32 years.

Does the Book of Mormon Teach Mormon Doctrine?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Does the Book of Mormon Teach Mormon Doctrine? Mormons often challenge potential converts to the Mormon Church to "pray" and "read" the Book of Mormon in order to gain a testimony of it's truthfulness. Yet, the Book of Mormon is not a valid test for the doctrine of the Mormon Church because its teachings go against the foundational teachings of Mormonism. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "The Mormon Church openly opposes the Book of Mormon." You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Is the Book of Mormon Racist?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee and Kathy Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Is the Book of Mormon Racist? Is Black Skin a "Curse" from God in Mormonism? Mormons often challenge potential converts to the Mormon Church to "pray" and "read" the Book of Mormon in order to gain a testimony of it's truthfulness. Yet, the Book of Mormon is one of the most racist "Scriptures" of Mormonism, teaching that Black Skin is a curse from God for wickedness and white skin for righteousness. This teaching is opposed to the God of the Bible who shows no favoritism and regards all people, both black and white as equal. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "Race in the Mormon Church – Past Mormon Leaders told “Nigger” Jokes at Conference." You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Did Joseph Smith boast he did MORE than Jesus?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Did Joseph Smith boast he did MORE than Jesus? Joseph Smith is often held up in the Mormon Church as a prophet of God to emulate and follow. Yet, Joseph Smith stated: “All hell, boil over! Ye burning mountains, roll down your lava! for I will come out on the top at last. I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.” —Joseph Smith, May 26, 1844, History of the Church, vol 6, pp. 408-409. This prideful boast of Joseph Smith reminds us of the warning given in LDS Scripture, Doctrine and Covenants 3:4: “For although a man may have many revelations, and have power to do many mighty works, yet if he boasts in his own strength, and sets at naught the counsels of God, and follows after the dictates of his own will and carnal desires, he must fall and incur the vengeance of a just God upon him.” Ironically, just one month after Joseph Smith uttered his arrogant boast to do more than Jesus, he did indeed “fall and incur the vengeance of a just God upon him,” dying in a gun battle at the Carthage Jail on June 27th of 1844. Joseph Smith's prideful attitude and deceitful character proves that he was not qualified to be called by God as a prophet for His church. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "Have You Been Lied To About The Character of Joseph Smith?" You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Is Joseph Smith a Good Example to Follow?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Is Joseph Smith a Good Example to Follow? Joseph Smith is often held up in the Mormon Church as a man of "Integrity," someone to whom Mormons should look up to emulate and follow. Yet, the History of the LDS Church demonstrates quite the opposite. Not only did Joseph Smith deceive people on his false doctrines about God and salvation, he lied under oath in a court of law and to Emma (his first wife) about how many wives he was actually married to. This demonstrates that Joseph Smith did not possess the proper character to be called by God as a prophet for His church. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "Have You Been Lied To About The Character of Joseph Smith?" You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Did Joseph Smith Change God's Covenant?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Did Joseph Smith Change God's Covenant? In 1831, Joseph Smith began his alleged "translation" of the Bible. Published as the "Joseph Smith Translation" or the "Inspired Version of the Bible," scholars have struggled in vain to find any connection between the changes that Joseph Smith made to his version of the Bible and the ancient Biblical manuscripts. Further study reveals that not only do these changes disagree with ancient manuscripts, but they disagree with ancient traditions and Biblical practices that are well-known and documented even to this day. One such change made by Joseph Smith at Genesis 17:11 questions the fundamental premise of the Abrahamic Covenant that God made with Israel, requiring "circumcision" of all male children at "8 days," not "8 years," as Joseph Smith changed it in his translation. Is it possible that all of God's Prophets and even Jesus Himself, performed "circumcision" wrong for 3,000 years until Joseph Smith came on the scene and re-translated God's Covenant? Or do the facts speak for themselves that Joseph Smith was a false "prophet" who was "inspired" by Satan to mislead God's people through his fake "revelations"? This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "The Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible Confirms He Was a False Prophet." You can listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Does Mormonism Restore the Biblical Priesthoods?

Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

Does the Mormon Restoration Fit God's Restoration Pattern?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Does the Mormon Restoration Fit God's Restoration Pattern? Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker explains how God's Restoration occurs over and over in Biblical Scripture, but NEVER the way Joseph Smith and the Mormon Church claim. The Mormon Restoration is a fabrication. It restores nothing and instead adds new "Scripture" that violates God's prior Commands and Covenants. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "What, If Anything, was Restored by the LDS Church?" Listen to the show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Did Joseph Smith follow the Laws of Polygamy in D&C 132?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Did Joseph Smith follow the Laws of Polygamy given in LDS Scripture D&C 132? Mormons often look to Doctrine and Covenants 132 in their Scriptures as a guide for how polygamy was practiced and what it will look like in Heaven. Yet, Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker exposes how Joseph Smith didn't even follow the rules of polygamy that he wrote down in this revelation, nor did any of the 34 wives he married follow this revelation. It had virtually NO affect whatsoever upon Mormon polygamy. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "The Ever Changing and Ever Shifting LDS Doctrine." Listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Have Mormon Leaders Led the Church Astray?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Have Mormon Leaders led the Church Astray? The Mormon Church claims that "God will not allow" their Church leaders to lead the Church astray because they say that their leaders have been "trained" and "mentored" by "apostles and prophets" and even "the Lord Himself." Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker examines the evidence revealed in Mormon Church Gospel Essays that expose the history of lies and scandals within the Mormon leadership. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "The Mormon Restoration was a Mormon Fabrication." Listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Do Mormons believe they can become gods?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee and Kathy Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: Do you believe you can become a god? What does God say about Himself and His character? Mormons often deny this fundamental teaching of Mormonism when speaking to people outside the Mormon Church. Yet, it is well-documented both in official Mormon Church publications and in their "Scriptures". Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker presents the evidence that Mormonism teaches blasphemy against the God of the Bible. This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "What God said about Himself and His Character." Listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.

Is Jesus Missing from the Mormon Salvation Plan?

Mainstream Mormonism's Questions for Mormons • Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker

QUESTION FOR MORMONS: "Is Jesus Missing from the Mormon Plan of Salvation Chart published by the LDS Church?" While the Mormon Church often seeks to be accepted as another denomination of Christianity, it is important to note that Jesus Christ is often de-emphasized within the publications of the Mormon Church, to the point that Jesus isn't even mentioned in their "Plan of Salvation" chart pictured on page 3 of their 1998 manual entitled "Preparing for Exaltation." This video is taken from the Mainstream Mormonism Radio Program entitled, "What God said about Himself and His Character." You can learn more and listen to this show at LeeBaker.4Mormon.org.
