One of the unique and authoritative claims of the Mormon LDS church is they have twelve living Apostles. That would make them similar to what the Lord Jesus had when he walked on the planet 2,000 years ago. Some people have no doubt been misled by that deceptive claim. The Bible tells us how to test such claims:
The things that mark an apostle — signs, wonders and miracles — were done among you with great perseverance. (2 Cor 12:12)
Not only do the supposed Mormon Apostles lack those identifying marks, there are other religious people who are also exposed as counterfeits by 2 Cor. 12:12. Remember, false apostles can appear as godly people, but they are actually servants of the devil (2 Cor. 11:13-15):
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
An additional critical truth when evaluating any person who claims to be a Christian (especially a Christian teacher) would be: Is his plan of salvation the same as what the New Testament teaches? If not, do NOT believe a word he is saying. Such people are false apostles, false prophets, false teachers, etc. and spiritually DANGEROUS! Evaluate them righteously — by Scripture (2 Tim. 3:16,17) — and not by appearance or claims. NOTE: Miracles can be produced by God and the devil. Hence, just because a miracle is done doesn’t mean the person is from God! (See this for more details about the true plan of salvation.)
