Mormon Decisions 10Of All Things! Classic Quotations of Hugh Nibley, p 76; “Do not begrudge existence to creatures that looked like men long, long ago, nor deny them a place in God’s affection or even a right to exaltation, for our scriptures allow them such. Nor am I overly concerned as to just when they might have lived, for their world is not our world. They have all gone away long before our people ever appeared. God assigned them their proper times and functions. “Before Adam,” CWHN 1:82” – Hugh Nibley, edited by FARMS, 1991

Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, April 1939, Morning Meeting, p 57; “The negro is an unfortunate man. He has been given a black skin. But that is as nothing compared with that greater handicap that he is not permitted to receive the Priesthood and the ordinances of the temple, necessary to prepare men and women to enter into and enjoy a fulness of glory in the celestial kingdom. What is the reason for this condition, we ask, and I find it to my satisfaction to think that as spirit children of our Eternal Father they were not valiant in the fight” – George F. Richards

Mormon Decisions 10Selected Writings of Robert L. Millet: Gospel Scholars Series, p 190; “The four Gospels are particularly plain in setting forth the true nature of God and the various labors of the members of the Godhead. Indeed, one has to become involved in a stretching series of doctrinal maneuvers in order to derive the concept of Trinity or of a triune God in the New Testament…

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The LDS OT Sunday school lesson for week six made me feel like I was in elementary school once again.  The way the Church presents their lessons have been a source of wonder for Melissa and me once we got going on these things and the reason why is because of their material.

Broad is the Way

Mormon Decisions 10The Three Kingdoms of Heaven; “Joseph and Sidney saw the terrestrial kingdom of heaven. People in the terrestrial kingdom were good people on earth, but they did not have faith in Jesus and did not obey all of the commandments.

Some of the people in the terrestrial kingdom did not believe the gospel when they heard it on earth but did accept it after they died. These people may see Jesus, but they cannot live with Him or Heavenly Father.”

Bible Not Necessary

Mormon Decisions 10A Marvelous Work and a Wonder, pg 40; “…the everlasting gospel could not be discovered through reading the Bible alone… this is the only Christian church in the world that did not have to rely upon the Bible for its organization and government…if we had no Bible we would still have all the needed direction and information through the revelations of the Lord to his servants, the prophets in these latter days.” – LeGrand Richards

Teaching Mormon Youth about the Godhead

Mormon DilemmasThe LDS Church has instituted a month long program on teaching their youth about the Mormon godhead.

What I found interesting was a one paragraph synopsis of what young men will learn about their “divine heritage” by discovering the nature of their god.

“In learning about the nature and roles of each member of the Godhead, young men can better understand their identity and divine heritage…”

Mormonism and Christianity

While I was cruising around the net for some research this evening I came across an article written in the 1984 edition of Ensign.

I find talks and articles like this one very telling about the Church. While the Church tries hard to fit in with the body of Christ, there’s still this little problem of false teachings. And the first false teaching of Mormonism began in the grove of trees with Joseph Smith and some spirit who told him there wasn’t one single person on the face of the earth that was following God.

Brigham Young is LDS Dictator

Journal of Discourses 7:19-20; What do you say, brethren and sisters? Do you not think it best for us to do right, each person individually being led by the dictations of the Holy Spirit, listening diligently to those who are appointed to lead, govern, and dictate this people? You know what I mean by this. President Young is our governor and our dictator. It is for me to walk with him, and for you to walk with those who go before you.” – Heber C. Kimball, Salt Lake City, July 16, 1854
