Our Lord’s true Church is established and founded upon revelation. Its identity as the true Church continues as long as revelation is received to direct its affairs…. without revelation there would be no legal administrators to perform the ordinances of salvation with binding effect on earth and in heaven…. Since The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord’s true Church; and since the Lord’s Church must be guided by continuous revelation if it is to maintain divine approval;… we could safely conclude… that the Church today is guided by revelation…. the Spirit is giving direct and daily revelation to the presiding Brethren in the administration of the affairs of the Church…. The presence of revelation in the Church is positive proof that it is the kingdom of God on earth…. For those who reject these revelations there awaits the damnation of hell.

Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1979, pages 646, 647 and 650

1. The LDS (Mormons) claim to be the ‘true church’ – all others are apostate (NB Joseph Smith’s claim that the angel told him this)

2. Its denial of Sola Scriptura and the belief in ongoing revelation through ‘the presiding Brethren’ of the LDS.

3. Any denial of the extraordinary claims of the LDS is to face eternal damnation (cf. the claims of Romanism at the Council of Trent where it pronounces anathaemas on those who hold to the Scriptural teaching of justification by grace through faith alone).
