July 22 – Deut. 18:22; “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously; thou shalt not be afraid of him”.

Some good things, some not so good things and everything in between. Wow!
And then out of the blue I received a surprise phone call at 9:30 pm last Sunday evening that surprised even me.

Young Women Manual 2, “Lesson 29: Exaltation,” p. 108; “What blessings await those who live worthy of exaltation? (Godhood, having all things subject to them, having angels subject to them, having all power, living with Jesus.) Point out that just as Jesus Christ was promised all that the Father has, we can also receive all power and dominion, becoming creators of other spirits and other worlds.”
History of the Church 5:526; “I am above the kingdoms of the world, for I have no laws. I am not come to tell you to vote this way, that way or the other. In relation to national matters, I want it to go abroad unto the whole world that every man should stand on his own merits. The Lord has not given me a revelation concerning politics. I have not asked Him for one. I am a third party, and stand independent and alone.”
New Era, ‘Singing the Distance’, by Janet Thomas, Jan. 2000, 12; “… seminary students from Pleasant Grove, Utah, started a marathon. It would take them more than 13 hours to complete. There was no running involved—just singing. Lots and lots of singing. The seminary students were attempting to sing every hymn in the hymnbook in a single day… Another meaningful hymn to the group was “A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief.” Brett Munden said, “I love that song because when I sing it I think of Joseph Smith in Carthage Jail. He asked John Taylor to sing that song for him. It’s my favorite hymn because it was Joseph’s favorite.”…

New Era, “FYI: For Your Info,”, Apr. 1993, 34; “It was 100 years ago this month that the Salt Lake Temple was dedicated. Since then, it has become a symbol of eternal happiness for many people. We thought you might like to know a few interesting facts.
The Angel Moroni, on top, is there to announce that the fulness of the everlasting gospel has been restored to earth.
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…”
