This week’s lesson entitled “Be Strong and of a Good Courage” is about the transfer of leadership from Moses to Joshua. The objective is to teach class members to remember the covenants they’ve taken to obey God and to use Joshua’s example in leadership success.

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

When LDS Apostle Bruce McConkie gave a Fireside Speech in June 1980 he named it “The Seven Deadly Heresies”, His message was a warning to members of the Church to refrain from believing in some of the teachings that were made popular by past prophets.
I’ve often wondered if he thought that his words would carry a significant message far into the future.

Each god has a father
Doctrines of Salvation 2:47; “Our Father in heaven, according to the Prophet, had a Father, and since there has been a condition of this kind through all eternity, each Father had a Father, until we come to a stop where we cannot go further, because of our limited capacity to understand.” – 10th LDS President Joseph Fielding Smith
Isaiah 55:8-9; “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Joseph’s “Sacred Grove”
Joseph Smith Testimony 1:14-15; “So, in accordance with this, my determination to ask of God, I retired to the woods to make the attempt. It was on the morning of a beautiful, clear day, early in the spring of eighteen hundred and twenty. It was the first time in my life that I had made such an attempt, for amidst all my anxieties I had never as yet made the attempt to pray vocally. 15 After I had retired to the place where I had previously designed to go, having looked around me, and finding myself alone, I kneeled down and began to offer up the desires of my heart to God. I had scarcely done so, when immediately I was seized upon by some power which entirely overcame me, and had such an astonishing influence over me as to bind my tongue so that I could not speak. Thick darkness gathered around me, and it seemed to me for a time as if I were doomed to sudden destruction.”

Journal of Discourses 8:211-212; “In relation to the way in which I look upon the works of God and his creatures, I will say that I was naturally begotten; so was my father, and also my Saviour Jesus Christ. According to the Scriptures, he is the first begotten of his father in the flesh, and there was nothing unnatural about it.” – Heber C. Kimball, Salt Lake City, September 2, 1860

As many people already know, oaths taken in the Mormon temple are almost identical to the oaths in the Masonic temples. We believe it’s always a good practice to look at things in context with a full disclosure of facts so that’s what we’re doing here.
In our objective we’re posing three questions;
Is it true the Mormons got their oaths from the Masons and if so how did that come about?
Exactly what are the oaths of each organization?
What does the Lord think of these groups with their secret ceremonies?
There’s certainly been no lack of controversy about Facsimile 1 in the Book of Abraham. From the time of its first publication in 1842, the authenticity of Joseph Smith’s ability to translate Egyptian has been in question.
Egyptologists then and now have denounced his work referring to it as fictitious pandering and no wonder, for not one hieroglyph in the Book of Abraham facsimiles have produced true interpretations as found in Egypt. Given Smith’s notorious track record his intentions have come into question and rightly so with this menagerie of false prophecies.
A key belief in the foundation of Mormonism is the theory everyone is literally begotten by a heavenly mother and father in a pre-mortal existence. This polygamous marital union is made up of one exalted man now god who has multiple goddess wives and they beget spirit babies who grow to maturity and then are given birth to in human form by our parents here on earth.
We’ve seen a surge in our search engine reports and e-mails requesting more information on Mormonism compared to other world religions. In the twenty plus years I’ve been in ministry I’m seeing more and more similarities in these religions and Mormonism so I, along with my volunteers, find ourselves writing about this a lot!
So what are the similarities? You’ll be surprised to find there are more similarities than not when dealing with Mormonism. What we found odd is the Church seems nonplussed that outsiders point them out. Oh the tangled web we weave…
In light of that, we’ve pulled our articles together and yep, you guessed it – it’s in a widget to the right or you can check it out by clicking here! :)
I’m posting this chart in response to the many e-mails I receive asking for definitions on Witchcraft, Satanism and Mormonism. This chart is part of a PowerPoint presentation I use when I’m asked to lecture at churches and schools.
This chart doesn’t include the side-by-side examples of Mormon beliefs, but you can download a chart for that here. It’s called Handouts for Witnessing. Between all the Mormon scriptures, Witchcraft and Satanism you’ll be prepared in knowing how to defend your faith with the Bible & see why God abhors worshiping anyone or anything but Him!
