I read in the Bible (Galatians 1:8) that even if an angel comes bringing another gospel, it should not be trusted. Doesn’t that prove the Mormon Church is false?

Many mistakenly cite Galatians 1:8 as proof that the Mormon Church is false. That verse states: "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." Because the early history of the Mormon Church includes accounts of angelic visitations, many believe this scripture applies to Mormonism.

In reality, this scripture is warning the earliest Christians about false teachers who would mix false man-made doctrines with the divine doctrines Christ introduced to the world. Many other scriptures foretold this impending apostasy, including Matthew 24:4-12, Matthew 24:9-11, 2 Timothy 3:12-13, Acts 20:29-31, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Galatians 1:6, etc, etc. Because the early Christian Church apostated in part from Christ's original teachings, Mormonism is actually a restoration of the SAME gospel (not "any other gospel") that was had by the earliest Christians.

In fact, another prophetic scripture states that in the last days an angel would visit the earth to help restore the original Christian church. According to Revelation 14:6-7: "And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
