Buy PayPal shares Utah Christian Publications is exactly what its name suggests. It provides Christian publications for those who want more information about the unique culture and beliefs of Utah which is dominated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). Although Mormon headquarters are in Utah, Mormonism is all over the world. Christians who live among Mormons or are dealing with Mormonism in their family or with acquaintances need to understand Mormonism as well as Christianity if they want to share their faith effectively with them. Mormons also need to understand Christianity better since they want to be included with other Christian churches. In recent years LDS leaders have claimed that Mormonism is Christianity and they have sought to be included in church and ministerial councils along with other Christian churches. That is an enigma in the light of the origin of Mormonism as well as their current claims.

     Mormons believe that after the death of Christ's apostles, the church He established became universally apostate (extinct) and remained that way for seventeen or eighteen hundred years (see The Great Apostasy by LDS Apostle James Talmage; History of the Church, vol. I, Introduction pp.39-41). LDS believe that in 1820, God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to fourteen year old Joseph Smith and called him to be a prophet and that ended the long period of universal apostasy (Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith-History 1:14-20). Thus, Joseph Smith restored "the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth" (Doctrine & Covenants 1:30). But they believe that the apostasy still continues in all other churches which are really "apostate Christendom" (Mormon Doctrine, p. 131). That is one reason Mormonism has over 60,000 Mormon missionaries who compass sea and land proselyting over 300,000 converts each year, primarily from other churches. That proselyting effort alone should cause thinking people to realize that there must be a big difference between Mormonism and Christianity or the LDS wouldn't spend so much time, money and effort on it. invest in PayPal shares

     Utah Christian Publications responds to Mormon claims and activities from a Biblical, historical and scientific perspective. Our material is not an attack upon Mormonism but a response to the attack Mormonism has made upon historic, Biblical Christianity. We also respond to the unique claims Mormonism makes for itself (ie. that it is a restoration of the one true church). We know that there are many people in the Mormon Church who are sincerely trying to serve God. But sincerity alone does not make one right. And when it comes to where we spend eternity, it is imperative that we are right in what we believe and do!
