They Fell to the Earth

3 Nephi 1:17; “And they began to know that the Son of God must shortly appear; yea, in fine, all the people upon the face of the whole earth from the west to the east, both in the land north and in the land south, were so exceedingly astonished that they fell to the earth.

Contending Warmly with Others with Your Fists

Alma 1:22; “Nevertheless, there were many among them who began to be proud, and began to contend warmly with their adversaries, even unto blows; yea, they would smite one another with their fists.”

As you might have guessed I have to post this one. If this whole Book of Mormon thing wasn’t so serious I’d be rolling on the floor in laughter with some of these stupid verses.

Honestly, how do the Mormon people look upon these things and not walk right out the door of Mormonism? How in the world is this inspired?

In me shall all mankind have life, and that eternally, even they who shall believe on my name; and they shall become my sons and my daughters.”

Thought of the Day about Mormonism and Mother Earth???

Mosiah 2:26; “And I, even I, whom ye call your king, am no better than ye yourselves are; for I am also of the dust. And ye behold that I am old, and am about to yield up this mortal frame to its mother earth.”

Mother Earth?

Really?

This phrase is a personification of nature that God created. It is the focus of thanking Mother Nature (Mother Earth) for her life giving aspects. God said he hates those who worship other gods – Ps. 31:6. 

Why is this in the Book of Mormon?

Spiritual Discernment

What is it and from where does it come?  When people write in asking how they can “get” spiritual discernment my answer is always the same; open your bible and start reading. 

For those who say they don’t have spiritual discernment I have a question for you!  Do you have His Holy Spirit residing inside you? Does He not guide you throughout your day? If so, how does He do this? Name the things He’s shown you in one day and give scriptural proof to back your claim.

God Became Flesh Because of Man’s Faith  

Ether 3:9-17; “And the Lord said unto him: Because of thy faith thou hast seen that I shall take upon me flesh and blood; and never has man come before me with such exceeding faith as thou hast; for were it not so ye could not have seen my finger. Sawest thou more than this?”

Jared’s Language not Confounded

Ether 1:34, 37; “And the brother of Jared being a large and mighty man, and a man highly favored of the Lord, Jared, his brother, said unto him: Cry unto the Lord, that he will not confound us that we may not understand our words. 37 And it came to pass that the brother of Jared did cry unto the Lord, and the Lord had compassion upon their friends and their families also, that they were not confounded.”

Name of Jesus’ Church

3 Nephi 27:8; “And how be it my church save it be called in my name? For if a church be called in Moses’ name then it be Moses’ church; or if it be called in the name of a man then it be the church of a man; but if it be called in my name then it is my church, if it so be that they are built upon my gospel.”

Arrogance of Joseph Smith

History of the Church 6:408-409; “Come on! ye prosecutors! ye false swearers! All hell, boil over! Ye burning mountains, roll down your lava! for I will come out on the top at last. I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.”

Not Inspired of God

Alma 40:2; “Behold, I say unto you, that there is no resurrection—or, I would say, in other words, that this mortal does not put on immortality, this corruption does not put on incorruption—until after the coming of Christ.”

As a Mormon I never related to Jesus on a personal level, but an impersonal one. By that I mean that anytime I referred to Him it was always “the Savior”, meaning He’s the savior of the world. I never thought of Him as being my Savior, as in He went to the cross to pay for my sins so that He could save me from the punishment I deserved.

Come to think of it I never called Him by His name either, but instead called Him “Christ”. Even when I left Mormonism I had a hard time breaking that habit, and it took me awhile before could call Him by His name, Jesus. And as for my prayer life, it never occurred to me that it was ok for me to pray to Him. Praying to Jesus isn’t something you do in the Mormon Church. Mormon prayers are always addressed to their “Heavenly Father”, and closed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Not Inspired of God

Alma 24:19; “And thus we see that, when these Lamanites were brought to believe and to know the truth, they were firm, and would suffer even unto death rather than commit sin; and thus we see that they buried their weapons of peace, or they buried the weapons of war, for peace.”

False Prophecy, Smith Will Not be Overthrown

History of the Church 5:554; “I [Joseph Smith] prophesy and bear record this morning that all the combined powers of earth and hell shall not and cannot ever overthrow or overcome this boy, for I have a promise from the eternal God. If I have sinned, I have sinned outwardly; but surely I have contemplated the things of God.”
