The Book of Mormon teaches against the notions of 'Mormonism'
For there is save one Messiah spoken of by the prophets,
And that Messiah is He which should be rejected of the Jews,
…And according to the words of the prophets
and also the word of the angel of God,
His name should be Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 Nephi 11:34-36
And He shall be called Jesus Christ,
the Son of God,
the Father of heaven and of earth,
the Creator of all things from the beginning;
And His mother shall be called Mary;
For there is one God and one Shepherd over all the earth;
1 Nephi 3:197
Behold, I Am Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
I created the heavens and the earth and all things that in them is;
3 Nephi 4:44
And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto them, saying
Arise and come forth unto Me
That ye may thrust your hands into My side,
And also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in My hands and in My feet,
That ye may know that I Am the God of Israel and the God of the whole earth
and have been slain for the sins of the world
3 Nephi 5:14
