ESV scriptures that will help you witness to Mormons.

  • Satan often masquerades as an “angel of light” 2 Cor 11:14 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”  This is important because Mormons believe that an angel Moroni gave them a new revelation. 
  • There is only 1 God not many- Mormons believe that everyone that lives the perfect Mormon life will become a god and rule their own planet.  —Isa 43:10-11 ““You are my witnesses,” declares the LorD  “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed,  nor shall there be any after me.11 I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior.” 
  • Again there is only 1 God.   Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last;  besides me there is no god.”
  • All other gods it talks about are idols 1 Chron 16:26 “For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens.”
  • God of the Bible created the entire Universe, which is important since there is not some other God on another planet that created the universe.  Gen 1:16 “And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.”  , Ps 8:3,Jer 31:35
  • Jehovah (translated as “LORD”) and Elohim (translated as God) are the same being—Deut 4:35 ” To you it was shown, that you might know that the Lord is God; there is no other besides him.”, 1 Kings 8:60 “that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.”
