Mormonism – A Life Under False Pretenses by Former Mormon Bishop Lee Baker – Book


As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have come to know the Lord Jesus Christ and His grace. Yet, the most enlightening and rewarding action a member of the Mormon Faith can do is precisely what they have been told to do: “Study the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Prophets of the Restoration”.  In so doing, we have found many of the most fundamental teachings of the LDS Church to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.




As a member of the Mormon faith for 32 years, having served honorably in many Leadership positions at the Branch, Ward and Stake level, I discovered that within the formal teachings of the Mormon Church, Jesus Christ Himself, and not the Mormon Prophets, is the author of polygamy, polyandry, and blood atonement. The Mormon leadership claims that under the Lord’s direction alone, Joseph Smith Jr. was “commanded” to take some thirty-three wives, two as young as fourteen years of age.   In 2008, after several painful years of meetings and letters to the highest levels of the Mormon Church concerning these questions of doctrine and history, I forced my own excommunication. The comprehensive story of the full compilation of questions and the heart wrenching process of departing from such a controlling religious faction is detailed in my book.
