Nepotism in the Mormon ChurchIt’s been said that looking at pictures of the General Authorities in Mormonism is like looking at family reunion photos – not your family mind you, but of a family you probably don’t belong to. As time has waned on over the years, not much has changed in the Church’s selection of who’s next to fill the shoes of those in charge.

It’s a well known fact that if you’re not born in the family of the hierarchy, it’s a fat chance you’ll be called to serve the Mormon heavenly father in an upper echelon of servants. Be that as it may, we looked at the newest members in the coveted apostle position to see what, if anything, had changed…

Long story short – not much.

January2January 3 – Matthew 24:4-5, 23-24; “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

wedding rings 3From the inception of Mormonism itself there’s been controversy. Joe Smith’s unconventional lifestyle was laden with numerous events the majority of people either never thought of before, or outright shunned.

Ignoring or shunning Smith always brought the same reaction; outrage. If you weren’t supportive of his antics, you were labeled a heretic, or an ‘anti’. Fast forward two hundred years, and the story is pretty much the same, with the exception of one thing. Many church members are now backing off the list of excuses for early Utah polygamy because of historical evidence. (more…)

salt lake mormon temple 2“I desire to share a few thoughts about a basic doctrine of the Church. What I say is boyd-k-packerbased on these convictions:

November 17 – Ezra 6:5; “And also let the golden and silver vessels of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took forth out of the temple which is at Jerusalem, and brought unto Babylon, be restored, and brought again unto the temple which is at Jerusalem, every one to his place, and place them in the house of God.”

Divided Kingdom of IsraelWhen I left Mormonism, I had little to no knowledge about the kingdom of Israel’s history. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I knew Israel was in the Middle East and that was about the sum of it.

Making matters worse, what I thought I did know was wrong. All of it; i.e. Jesus being born in Jerusalem v. Bethlehem (Alma 7:10).

So today we’re having a little history lesson to clear things up. As you’re well aware, Mormonism teaches one thing, and the Bible another. We’re taking a quick look at what a couple of well respected Mormons have taught in the book they wrote we’ve mentioned below to compare it with God’s word!
