How Mormonism and Islam Are Alike

Similarities of Muhammad and Joseph Smith:

* Each was visited by an 'angel'
* Each said he was given visions
* Each was told that no true religion existed on earth
* Each said he was sent to restore the long lost faith as the one true religion
* Each had a book claiming to be "inspired by God" which was produced from their teachings
* Each claimed to be illiterate and uneducated, and used this as proof the book was inspired
* Each claimed the Bible was lost, altered, corrupted and unreliable
* Each claimed his new holy book was the most correct and perfect book on earth
* Each claimed to be the final prophet of God
* Each claimed he was persecuted because of his pure faith
* Each was a polygamist who had many wives
* Immediately after each man's death a fight broke out among his faithful converts as to who
would succeed him
* Both religions have those who follow the original doctrines of their founding leaders, and like
those leaders, have been violent, polygamists, and have revelations justifying their evil deeds
* Each had progressive 'new' revelations to replace their 'old' revelations when they became
The above list was compiled by Eric Barger.

Similarity in the belief systems, both of which claim to have the only true and complete religion on the face of the earth:

* Both reject Christianity as corrupted
* Both taught the plurality of wives, both on earth and in the hereafter
* Both teach that the Bible is corrupt and mistranslated
* Both claim to reveal God's true scripture
* Both reject original sin and the doctrine of the trinity
* Both teach a salvation by good works
* Both were founded by 'holy,' uneducated 'prophets'
* Both founding prophets had angelic visitations and were told they were to restore Adamic
* Both prophets words were said to be above biblical scripture and earlier prophets
* Both teach a theocratic form of government
* Both teach a hereafter with graded rewards for works
* Both claim to be the world's fastest growing religion

The above list was compiled by ex-Mormon, Ed Decker
