This program answers the difficult question of “How can such a Good People follow such a Depraved Doctrine?” Often the apparent “Christianity” of the Mormon People seems far from the actual Teachings and Doctrine of their Leadership. Bishop Baker and his wife will bridge the gap between what a Mormon Family knows and what a Mormon Family practices.
This program discusses how Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, used “Mind Control” to convert his followers. Mormonism fits the “B.I.T.E.” model of Mind Control, as described by Steven Hassen, in his book, Combatting Cult Mind Control: “B.I.T.E.” stands for the control of an individual’s Behavior, Intellect, Thoughts, and Emotions. Destructive mind control can be determined when the overall effect of these four components promotes dependency and obedience to some leader or cause.
Biblical and Historical scholars agree that evidence from thousands of Biblical manuscripts confirm that the Biblical text has been preserved with 99% accuracy. Absolutely no significant doctrinal changes have been made in the hundreds of years of its existence as Jesus attested: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35) Yet, with absolutely not manuscript evidence, Joseph Smith made hundreds of changes to his translation of the Bible as documented in the LDS Version of the King James Bible. This program reviews a few of the major and heretical impacts (if considered valid) of the Joseph Smith Translations to the Bible in the context of Orthodox Christianity.

Moroni or Nephi? Who did Joseph Really See?
Amazing that the Mormon Church puts this information on their website, regarding Joseph’s visitation from an angel. When Joseph recorded the visitation in his diary he wrote that he saw the Angel Nephi…”Nephi”…NOT “Moroni” as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints changed it to. How can they retract the angel Moroni now, when they have placed him on top of every LDS temple, stating Moroni will announce the coming of the Lord. Mormon’s have told the world that Moroni was the last warrior-prophet in the Book of Mormon and that after his death he became a resurrected angel.The Mormon church still continues to this day to tell their members that it was the Angel Moroni who came to Jospeh Smith in a dream yet on the other hand they contradict themselves by printing Joseph’s own hand writing in his diary that he saw the Angel Nephi.
This program focuses on the very clear direction given by God and Jesus Christ that the era and period of Prophets ended with the establishment of Christ’s Church on the earth.

The very foundation of each element of your Worship is based on the true character and nature of God. If you get the character and nature of God wrong, then all aspects of your Worship of God will be wrong at best and offensive to Him at wickedest. The Biblical view of the very character and nature of God will be reviewed in this program. His explanation and His description of Himself is the standard we will use.
This program centers on The Book of Mormon’s Record of God’s Priesthood given its claim to be both the keystone of the LDS Faith and the most correct book on the earth.

Our lives are full of real examples and tangible experiences that have taught us that nothing is free in this world. We must work for our food, work for homes and work for every element of substance to keep us alive. But this is a fallen world and it is not the world in which Christ has designed and taught His Gospel, His Promises and His Love for us. The wonderful gift of Grace and the dead value of Works is the focus of this Program.
