Today we’re taking a look at Zedekiah, Judah’s last king. The reason we’re doing this is because of what the Book of Mormon says. There are several questionable teachings in their canon on this subject matter so I’ll be listing just one verse in my example and provide multiple verses from the Bible for you to use when witnessing to your Mormon friends/loved ones.
Let’s look at the BoM verse before we proceed. Helaman 8:21 says;
Helaman 8:21; “And now will you dispute that Jerusalem was destroyed? Will ye say that the sons of Zedekiah were not slain, all except it were Mulek? Yea, and do ye not behold that the seed of Zedekiah are with us, and they were driven out of the land of Jerusalem? But behold, this is not all—”

Marvelous Word and a Wonder, p 67; “…(Isaiah 29:1-4.) Isaiah saw the downfall of Ariel, or Jerusalem, at a time far in the future, “add ye year to year.” Then he seems to have been carried away in vision to witness a similar destruction of the cities of Joseph, “and it shall be unto me as Ariel.” He describes how they would be besieged and forts would be raised against them. They would be brought down and would speak out of the ground. Their speech would be “low out of the dust”; their voice would be as one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground; and their speech would whisper out of the dust. Now, obviously, the only way a dead people could speak “out of the ground” or “low out of the dust” would be by the written word, and this the people did through the Book of Mormon. Truly it has a familiar spirit, for it contains the words of the prophets of the God of Israel.” – LeGrand Richards

April 8 – Luke 24:36-9 & Acts 1:9-11; “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto the, Why are ye troubled? And why do thought arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

Doctrines of Salvation 3:198; “In my judgment there is no book on earth yet come to man as important as the book known as the Doctrine and Covenants, with all due respect to the Book of Mormon, and the Bible, and the Pearl of Great Price, which we say are our standards in doctrine. The book of Doctrine and Covenants to us stands in a peculiar position above them all”. – Joseph Fielding Smith
The name of this week’s lesson was “I Will Betroth Thee unto Me in Righteousness” and it focuses on Hosea’s marriage to his adulterous wife Gomer to compare it with the idolatrous behavior of Israel.
The teacher is instructed to ask members on several occasions to explain what Israel was doing wrong and then compares all this with the way we reject Christ today. Wow, if this isn’t rich I don’t know what is.
The longer I study Mormonism the less shocked I am about things that go on in this religion and its home base of Utah. The other thing I’m sure of is that my grandmother and her fourteen siblings are probably rolling in their graves over this one – the majority of those siblings lived most of their lives in Spanish Fork.
Mortal Messiah 2:177; “It is better, no doubt, to have a false religion and to worship false gods than to have no religion and no worship at all. Neutrality is as nothing, and indifference is denigrating and damning. Those who are lukewarm—who are neither hot nor cold; who take no affirmative stand; who do not seek the blessings available through worship—will one day be spewed out of the divine mouth, as it were, and find their place in one of the lesser eternal realms.” – Bruce McConkie
Lesson 23 is focused on friendship and “how to avoid being consumed by jealousy and hatred, as Saul was”.
The Church finished up looking at 1st Samuel this week and in doing so totally missed what the real message is in this very important part of the Bible. Covenants.
1 Samuel 13:14; “But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.”
Week 22 for the LDS Sunday School OT Lesson is called “The Lord Looketh on the Heart”.

LDS Pamphlets; “The tradition of a White God in ancient America was preserved through generations of Indians from Chile to Alaska, and has been significantly persistent likewise among the Polynesians from Hawaii to New Zealand…This being, known as Quetzalcoatl in parts of Mexico…WHAT did he look like, this Great White God?…He was frequently described as a tall white man, bearded and with blue eyes. He wore loose, flowing robes. He came from the heavens and went back to the heavens…”

The Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, Matthew – Revelation 2:113; “Who or what is God? Is he the incomprehensible, uncreated, immaterial nothingness described in the creeds of Christendom. A three-in-one nothingness, a spirit essence filling immensity, an incorporeal, uncreated being incapable of definition or mortal comprehension, an unknown God who does not appear to men?” – Bruce McConkie
