Apostles of the LDS Church

Current Apostles 

Here’s the rest of the apostles!  One last thing we noticed with the information we gleaned was the emphasis of how successful these men were/are in their professional lives.  We’re sure that if you delve into each one individually there is more to their stories, but we found it interesting as Melissa pointed out the other day that none have been noted for miracles or going out to preach the word without purse or script.

Humble Following or Misguided Trust?

The lengths to which members of the LDS Church will go never ceases to amaze me when defending the position they take about Joseph Smith.  I could write volumes upon volumes of books containing testimonials of how wonderful Mr. Smith is and if it weren’t for Mr. Smith then no one could be saved.

Apostles of the LDS (Mormon) Church

On Palm Sunday of 1993 I accepted the Lord Jesus into my heart as God and Savior.  From that day on my life was never the same – praise God!  Not long after I was saved from an eternal life separated from God, it became increasingly clear that what I was going to do with my life was about to change as well.

Man has Power within to Become Like God

Doctrines of Salvation 2:35; Man has within him the power, which the Father has bestowed upon him… that eventually he shall become like the Father and the Son; this virtue, wisdom, and knowledge on the part of the faithful does not rob the Father and the Son, but adds to their glory and dominion. Thus it is destined that those who are worthy to become his sons and joint-heirs with our Redeemer, would be heirs of the Father’s kingdom, possessing the same attributes in their perfection, as the Father and the Son now possess.

Laws of God not Perfect Yet

Journal of Discourses 2:314; The laws that the Lord has given are not fully perfect, because the people could not receive them in their perfect fulness; but they can receive a little here and a little there, a little today and a little to-morrow, a little more next week, and a little more in advance of that next year, if they make a wise improvement upon every little they receive; if they do not, they are left in the shade, and the light which the Lord reveals will appear darkness to them, and the kingdom of heaven will travel on and leave them groping. Hence, if we wish to act upon the fulness of the knowledge that the Lord designs to reveal, little by little, to the inhabitants of the earth, we must improve upon every little as it is revealed.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 8, 1855

The Twelve Apostles

Right now I’m watching a sermon by John MacArthur on the 12 apostles (link below). As I watch it I can’t help but think about the Mormon 12 and how completely different these two groups of men are. Jesus’ 12 were taught at his feet and then were sent out by him to proclaim salvation is only through Him. They went out to share the gospel with nothing, they healed people, anointed the sick, and cast out demons. They did what Jesus did, they had all the power Jesus did over these things.  2 Corinthians 12:12 reads “The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles. “

The Mormon 12 are called by their prophet, they preach a false gospel of works, receive the rock star treatment when they travel and haven’t healed anyone. Where are their signs, wonders and miracles?

False Prophets and Prophecies of the Mormon Church

Today while perusing the official website of the LDS Church I came upon their page defining the role of a prophet.  I thought it’d be of interest for us to just take a look at what they say and see if we can glean any insight.  http://lds.org/study/topics/prophets?lang=eng
