“…In 1979, after years of careful work under the direction of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, the Church published a Latter-day Saint edition of the Bible. This edition of the Bible has the same text as the King James Version, but it includes special study aids, such as the Topical Guide, the Bible Dictionary, and footnotes referring to passages in other books of scripture and to excerpts from Joseph Smith’s translation of the Bible….

Galatians 4:6; “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”
It seems like a lifetime ago when I met with a friend for lunch and the hour I spent with her opened the door of a brand new world. Although at the time I didn’t understand why, I really enjoyed being in her presence. We both had husbands stationed at Nellis Air Base, and realized we had a lot of other things in common as well. On this particular day as we were chatting an overwhelming sense of peace and calmness washed over me, and I noticed whenever I was around her afterwards, the same thing happened! After I accepted the Lord I realized I had witnessed the effects of the Holy Spirit in the life of my friend who was a believer.
As you might imagine, leaving Mormonism comes with a laundry list of new experiences and seemingly never-ending surprises. One of the biggest shocks for me was learning there’s only one God.
For the next few days we’re going to look at some of the key biblical elements of the Trinity that sets Christianity apart from Mormonism. We pray it’ll be a handy reference portal Christians can use when witnessing, and for Mormons who want to know more about the god they worship. Today our subject matter is God. Tomorrow we’ll look at Jesus, and on day three we’re looking at the Holy Spirit.
Our new series will replace/update our existing page entitled God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit of the Bible.

As of 1/18/2016, there are 149 LDS temples in operation worldwide. In addition to those, there’s another 14 under construction, and still another 10 recently announced. With all the massive amounts of money being dumped into these mega structures, we thought it’d be a good idea to review our comparison of the first temple the Nephites supposedly built here in the Americas with Solomon’s temple we know about in God’s word.

January 12 – Ancient of Days. There are some names and phrases in the Bible that catches our immediate attention and Ancient of Days qualifies. The words bring a sense of reverence commanding our attention, doesn’t it? The passage in Daniel paints a picture like none other does; the flaming throne is judgment, and the white hair and title ‘Ancient’ denotes God who has existed before time began (Is 43:10). It puts it all in perspective for us eh? It puts us in a position of knowing who’s in charge! Sadly, it’s anything but in Mormonism. They’ve gone out of their way to malign the Lord and twist scripture in ways unheard of before.
