Ed DeckerI am not claiming to be a prophet, revelator or even a seer, as did Joseph Smith and later LDS presidents, but I have had something of a revelation of sorts. I was sorting though all the many, recent LDS claims of being true Christians and began to see a pattern of corporate denial of its own basic ‘restorationist’ theology.  They have brought changes so much in opposition to their much-proclaimed only-true-church status as to completely invalidate their claims of a restored church.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 24:126 “But let me refer you to another blessing connected with Abraham, namely, that in him and his seed should all the nations of the earth be blessed. Or, in other words, that God would honor him by making of him and his seed agents through whom He would communicate truth, intelligence and salvation to the world. It is said “the glory of God is intelligence,” and He is desirous to impart this intelligence to the human family, that through it they may be exalted to the Godhead.” – John Taylor, Salt Lake City, April 8, 1883

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 9:142-143; “President Lincoln called out soldiers for three months, and was going to wipe the blot of secession from the escutcheon of the American Republic. The three months are gone, and the labour is scarcely begun. … they have begun to empty the earth, to cleanse the land, and prepare the way for the return of the Latter-day Saints to the centre Stake of Zion…. Will it be over in six months or in three years? No; it will take years and years, and will never cease until the work is accomplished. There may be seasons that the fire will appear to be extinguished, and the first you know it will break out in another portion, and all is on fire again, and it will spread and continue until the land is emptied.” Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 28, 1861

Mormon Decisions 10Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, Chapter 23; “The holy prophets have not only refused to follow erroneous human trends, but have pointed out these errors. No wonder the response to the prophets has not always been one of indifference. So often the prophets have been rejected because they first rejected the wrong ways of their own society.”

Mormon Decisions 10I discovered the following 6 point list of identifying false prophets on the web archived site for Biblical Discernment Ministries I  wanted to share it here because the points they made are great!

The only thing I’d add to their list is those who deny the cross.  I know, I know, I seem to hound on that subject matter! I still can’t get over how obvious this is though!

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The name of this lesson is “Enlarge the Place of Thy Tent” and its purpose is to encourage members to strengthen the stakes of Zion and prepare for the Second Coming and the Millennium”. The lesson is based on Isaiah chapters 54-56 and 63-65.

We’re starting this overview much like we did a few lessons ago with the last question first.  I do this for you to keep it in mind as we glance over their questions. We’ll come back to this in a few minutes. We’re praying that you’ll use it as a witnessing tool when you speak with your Mormon friends and loved ones!

Mormon Decisions 10Waiting for World’s End: The Diaries of Wilford Woodruff, edited by Susan Staker, Signature Books, 1993, p. 305; “Again Presdet Young said Joseph the Prophet told me that the garden of Eden was in Jackson Co Missouri, & when Adam was driven out of the garden of Eden He went about 40 miles to the Place which we Named Adam Ondi Ahman, & there built an Altar of Stone & offered Sacrifize. That Altar remains to this day. I saw it as Adam left it as did many others, & through all the revolutions of the world that Altar had not been disturbed. Joseph also said that when the City of Enoch fled & was translated it was whare the gulf of Mexico now is. It left that gulf a body of water.” [sic] – Wilford Woodruff

BoM3in1 Today we’re taking a look at what the Book of Mormon has to say about itself and the claims about its authenticity. We don’t have to go far before discovering a few brow raising verses that should give pause to anyone reading its contents.

Joseph Smith claimed the BoM was the most correct book on earth (History of the Church 4:461) and even today the Church wastes no opportunity to repeat his statement yet they never fail to give excuses as to why outsiders don’t share the same views.
