For God So Loved the World- Atonement

Consider supporting us this Year

Both the Mormons and Christians agree on the principle of the atonement, but disagree in the full definition of the term.  In Mormonism, the first use of the word “atonement” is found in the Book of Mormon.  Interesting fact is that it was a word made up by Man to describe its Hebrew equivalent.  In the 16th Century, Bible scholar and translator William Tyndale recognized there was not a direct English translation of the Biblical Hebraic concept for “deific satisfaction.”  So he put two words “at” and “one” together, added a “ment” as a means to reflect the dual aspect of Christ’s sacrifice: which includes: 1) the remission of sin, and 2) the reconciliation of man to God.  The LDS mock Christians for  using the word “Trinity” but believe the 16th century man-made term “atonement” was somehow able to be translated into the ancient golden plates of their Book of Mormon.

Knife to a Gun Fight

Ever wonder why there are so many different interpretations of the Bible? A book that apparently has all the answers but winds up being understood in a thousand different ways? Could it be that it was never meant to provide objective solutions to the world but to instead serve individual believers as a map for their respective walk? Have we misinterpreted the purpose and place of the New Testament today?

Heart of the Matter where
Mormonism meets Biblical Christianity

Welcome to Heart of the Matter with Shawn McCraney, where Mormonism meets Biblical Christianity face to face! Feel free to watch any of our episodes that have aired since 2006.

We want every Latter-Day Saint to know that we love them, first and foremost. Our hope is that as you view Heart of the Matter, you will evaluate and compare the gospel of Joseph Smith with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to introduce all Latter-day Saints to the God-given gift of undeniable spiritual rebirth that comes through true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

If the time is right for you, we also have helpful instructions on removing your membership from the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church).
