Are covenants the means by which we’re connected to God as the LDS Church stated last week, or is it ordinances? Oh, and what about Jesus? Does He play any part?
BYU President Kevin Worthen gave a speech at the Marriott Center BYU Women’s Conference earlier in the month that was published by Deseret News on June 5, 2015.
Our dilemma today is an e-mail that came in via our other website and our reply to the Mormon gentleman who wrote it. His comment was made in response to a quote he saw on the site and obviously disagreed with. You can read the exchange below and on our site as well.
In all things we want to glorify the Lord. My heart goes to Jesus first, even if it must be at the expense of disagreeing with someone else’s interpretation of scripture. Personally, it kills me that Mormons are lied to and believe the outlandish whims of their leaders. How I wish I could erase all of Mormon theology like writing on a chalkboard and replace it with His word…
As I look at the different videos on YouTube by members of the Mormon Church, I find myself wondering how far are they willing to go be seen as “one of the guys (or gals)”? I’ve seen link after link of different parodies of songs members of the Church have made to promote something about their religion.
A new thing they seem to be into is taking popular songs and making it “their own”. Below are just a few examples of this:
Gospel Doctrine, Chapter 25, p. 480; “THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH. Brother Woodruff, in the course of his remarks, made the assertion that Joseph Smith was the greatest prophet that has ever lived, of whom we have any knowledge, save and except Jesus Christ himself…Today there is not another man, perhaps, who has figured in religion, whose name is so wide-spread among the nations, as that of Joseph Smith.” – Joseph F. Smith

Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p 89-90; “Not only are there apostates within our midst, but there are also apostate doctrines that are sometimes taught in our classes and from our pulpits and that appear in our publications. And these apostate precepts of men cause our people to stumble. As the Book of Mormon, speaking of our day, states: ‘They have all gone astray save it be a few, who are the humble followers of Christ; nevertheless, they are led, that in many instances they do err because they are taught by the precepts of men’ (2 Nephi 28:14).” — Ezra Taft Benson
