Today’s dilemma is an addition to our articles on the demonic symbols found on LDS temples. I came across the website ‘Moroni’s Latter-Day Saint Page’ and discovered I somehow missed a few of the symbols on the SLC Temple we’ve written about previously so we’re looking at those today.

Today we’re examining the last segment of George Q. Cannon’s talk on the rejection of the Christian God and the anti-Christian remarks he made.
Journal of Discourses 24:185 – 186; “I want a God of that kind if I can find Him, and I thank God that I have found Him, and that He has revealed Himself in these last days, and has established His Church as He did in ancient days, and has endowed it with the same powers that the ancient church possessed, and it has to undergo the same trials and temptations and the same persecution that the ancient church did.”
Today we’re continuing our look at a speech given by George Q. Cannon when he systematically rejected God and what He’s done for us. The importance of this speech in the annals of Mormonism is important and shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s one of the many times the LDS Church has gone out of its way to slam Christianity, and the rejection of Christianity is clearly still intact today.
Looking around for a quote the other day proved to be an interesting experience as I came across a talk given by LDS apostle George Q. Cannon. Just like his counterparts who trick people, he blathered on with lies about the body of Christ and didn’t provide any evidence for his damning accusations.
Our dilemma today and for the next day or two is a multi-part series as we look at this talk to compare it with historical facts, but most of all the Bible.
“Apostles Talk about Reasons for Lifting Ban,” Dallin H. Oaks, Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, 5 June 1988; “If you read the scriptures with this question in mind, ‘Why did the Lord command this or why did he command that,’ you find that in less than one in a hundred commands was any reason given. It’s not the pattern of the Lord to give reasons. We can put reasons to commandments. When we do, we’re on our own. Some people put reasons to [the ban] and they turned out to be spectacularly wrong. There is a lesson in that… The lesson I’ve drawn from that, I decided a long time ago that I had faith in the command and I had no faith in the reasons that had been suggested for it. […] I’m referring to reasons given by general authorities and reasons elaborated upon [those reasons] by others. The whole set of reasons seemed to me to be unnecessary risk taking. […] Let’s [not] make the mistake that’s been made in the past, here and in other areas, trying to put reasons to revelation. The reasons turn out to be man-made to a great extent. The revelations are what we sustain as the will of the Lord and that’s where safety lies.”
Journal of Discourses 14:160-161; “If it is necessary to have two wives, take them. If it is right, reasonable and proper and the Lord permits a man to take half a dozen wives, take them; but if the Lord says let them alone, let them alone. How long? Until we go down to the grave, if the Lord demand it.” — Brigham Young, Ogden City, June 4, 1871
