All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Our ministry created this page to give Christians a topical understanding of what the Bible says about many common subjects that relate to Mormonism. This topical guide serves as an effective tool in finding Biblical references so you can more effectively minister to your LDS friends using God's Holy Word. Click on any subject to see its Biblical references as well as short descriptions* of each passage.


*The LDS church exclusively uses the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. Certain passages read differently between the KJV and more modern translations. To make this list more effective for ministering, the descriptions of certain verses have been written to reflect the KJV translation and are notated as such.

The Apostasy

Not one iota of the law will pass away until all is accomplished

Many will fall away and betray and hate one another

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away

Parable of Sower, seeds that fall on rock have no root and when tested fall away

To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations forever

Second coming is near when the falling away happens

In later times some will depart from the faith

Turn away from the truth with itching ears to teachers that suit their passions

Appearing Righteous

Appearing Righteous

Acceptable sacrifice is a broken heart and contrite spirit

Righteous acts are like filthy rags

Righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees

Lord, Lord, look at our mighty works in your name- I never knew you

Those who are sick need a physician; sinners, not righteous are called

Pharisees are like dishes that appear clean, whitewashed tombs

No one is good except God alone

Parable of Pharisee and tax collector

No one is good but God alone

No one is righteous, not even one

Nothing good dwells in our flesh, we are wretched sinners

Zeal not according to knowledge, establishing their own righteousness

We have confidence of sufficiency, not in ourselves, but God

Baptism for the Dead

Baptism for the Dead

Witchcraft, necromancy, and divination is abominable in God’s sight

Let the dead bury the dead

Fulfillment of Malachi 4:5-6

White-washed sepulchers but inside full of dead men’s bones

Parable of Rich Man and Lazarus- dead won’t be sent back to warn

God is not the God of the dead but of the living

THEY who are baptized for the dead… and why do WE stand… (KJV)

Don’t heed endless genealogies

Avoid genealogies

Repentance from dead works

Body of Christ

Body of Christ

Christ will build His church, gates of hell will not prevail against it

Where two or three are gathered in Jesus’ name He will be there also

A house divided against itself will not be able to stand

One body, many members with different functions

No divisions, united in same mind and judgment

Gifts of Spirit are given as He wills, no part is more important than the others

The church is Christ’s body

One body, one spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism

Christ loved the church, cleanses her by the washing of water with the word

The church is the Body of Christ

Children of God

Children of God

Peacemakers to be called the sons of God

Those who believe given the right to become children of God

Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God

We receive Spirit of adoption that witnesses we are children of God

We are sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus

We receive adoption as sons because of Jesus

Predestined to adoption as sons of God through Jesus

What love the Father bestowed on us, that we are called children of God

NOW we are children of God

Children of God practice righteousness and love their brother



Jesus did not come to bring peace but a sword, dividing families

We fight with divine weapons to demolish strongholds and arguments

Speaking the truth in love

Have nothing to do with works of darkness, but expose them

Our fight is not against flesh and blood, but the powers of darkness

Strive side by side for the faith of the gospel

Rightly handling the word of truth

Not quarrelsome, correcting opponents with gentleness

Scripture for reproof, correction, training

Ready in and out of season to reprove, rebuke, exhort with patience and teaching

Instruct others with sound doctrine and rebuke those who oppose it

Word of God is living, active, sharper than a two-edged sword

Always be prepared to make a defense for the hope in you

Contend for the faith given to all the saints

Save others by snatching them out of the fire

The Cross

The Cross

Whoever doesn’t take up cross and follow Jesus isn’t worthy

Deny yourself and take up your cross and follow Jesus

Deny yourself and take up your cross and follow Jesus

Deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Jesus

He who doesn’t bear his own cross and come after Jesus can’t be His disciple

Cross foolishness to those who are perishing; power of God to those being saved

Through the foolishness of the cross God saved us, we preach Christ crucified

I am crucified with Christ

May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord

Jesus reconciled all believers to God through the cross

Jesus was obedient by going to the cross

Walk as enemies of the cross

Jesus made peace through the blood of His cross

Jesus cancelled the debt that opposed us and nailed it to the cross

Christ’s sacrifice on the cross once for all sanctifies us

For the joy that was set before Him Jesus endured the cross

Eternal Progression

Eternal Progression

Satan tempted Eve with the false prospect of being like God

Before me no God was formed, neither shall there be any after

I am the first and I am the last, and beside me there is no God

Is there a God beside me?  There is no God; I know not any

I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God

Jesus didn’t count equality with God a thing to be grasped



He believed God, counted to him as righteousness

Do not fear, only believe

All things are possible for one who believes

Faith can move mountains, ask with faith and you will receive
