An unstable imparting of Scripture and an edited history of the church causes the laws and ordinances of the gospel to which Mormons refer to be fraudulent and thus unreliable. Salvation is contingent on obeying Christ’s doctrine and what the Bible instructs. Therefore to follow anything not in correlation with it is to “be accursed” (Gal. 1:6-9).
