Countercult ministries

These are ministries that are targeted primarily at opposing Mormonism.

Contender Ministries

Summary: In the fashion typical of countercult ministries, FairMormon is accused of deception. Contender Ministries' website notes that FAIR "is waging a somewhat successful campaign of disinformation. Many Mormons, on the verge of admitting that Joseph Smith was a false prophet, are thrown into confusion by the FairMormon apologists. However, [Contender Ministries has] found the articles on FAIR's website to be quite deceptive inasmuch as they quote Scripture, LDS leaders, and Christian apologists out of context, and hide as much information as they provide."

Institute for Religious Research

Summary: According to the IRR website, "The LDS Church teaches a number of things that conflict with the Bible and are radically different from the beliefs of Christians down through the centuries. If Mormonism denies the core teachings of biblical Christianity, should it still be considered an authentic expression of true Christianity?"

Macgregor Ministries

Summary: The website claims that all articles on Mormonism contained therein are "all written from a Christian perspective and explain the differences between Mormonism and orthodox Christianity."

Tower to Truth Ministries

Summary: From the article "Mormonism Uncovered," we learn that "the LDS Church has stealthily campaigned to portray itself as just another Christian church preaching the same gospel and principles as do contemporary evangelical denominations."

Watchman Fellowship

Summary: According to their website, "Watchman Fellowship is an independent, nondenominational Christian research and apologetics ministry focusing on new religious movements, cults, the occult and the New Age."

The Interactive Bible

Summary: The Interactive Bible website states that they are "the same as the church of the Bible."

Utah Lighthouse Ministry

Summary: According to their website, "The purpose of [Utah Lighthouse Ministry] is to document problems with the claims of Mormonism and compare LDS doctrines with Christianity."
    • Contradictions in LDS Scripture
      Brief Summary: Many conservative Protestant critics have reproduced a table which purports to show how LDS scripture contradicts itself. FairMormon examines the supposed contradictions, presents the scriptures cited in context, and demonstrates that claims of contradiction rest on: 1) a misinterpretation of LDS scripture and 2)comparing two verses which are speaking about different things reading Protestant meanings into scriptural terminology (Click here for full article)
