The Mormons







Take hold of eternal life!














Jesus is the way,
 the truth, and the life



Chapter 10 -

What do you have to do?





We have in the previous chapters looked at Mormonism, the teachings of the Mormons, and how they differ from the Bible. We have noted that the teachings of the Mormons are completely different from the ones in the Bible, and especially the ones in the New Testament. In addition to this, also the value of Joseph Smith as a prophet is questionable because in his life, his teachings, and his prophesies there are features that put him in bad light.

   But what do you personally have to do as a Mormon in order to receive eternal life? How can you be in connection with God and how can you get into His Heavenly Kingdom? We shall try to explain this in the light of the following:




Firstly, you must understand that you must turn to Jesus. Since we have life only in Him and since He is the only way to the kingdom of God, you must turn to Him.

   Perhaps you have always understood this matter in theory, but have you ever done this and asked Jesus to come into your life? (You can say, for example, " Lord Jesus, come into my life!) If you have not done this yet, you are not yet in connection with God:


- (John 10:9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.


- (John 14:6) Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.


- (John 5:40) And you will not come to me, that you might have life.


- (John 6:68) Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life.




Another thing that you should understand is that salvation is not a process in which you by degrees would become better and better, and finally receive the grace of God. Instead, it is a question of receiving grace, salvation, and eternal life immediately after having received Jesus into your life. You have, since that moment, the adoption of God and eternal life, as the following verses indicate:


- (John 1:12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:


- (1 John 5:11-13) And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12  He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life.

13  These things have I written to you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God.




Lord, Jesus, I turn to You. I confess that I have sinned against You and I have not lived according to Your will. However, I want to turn from my sins and follow You with all my heart. I also believe that my sins have been forgiven by Your atonement work and I have received eternal life through You. I thank You for the salvation You have given me. Amen.
