Lesson 21 covers chapters 1-3, and 8 of 1 Samuel (with no mention of chapters 4-7). I don’t know why I continue to be amazed at the way they bulldoze over God’s word in a Sunday school class just to get to the bits and pieces they need to use for their lesson. But I am!

and the earth (see Mosiah 3:8; Moses 2:1). From scripture revealed through the Prophet
Joseph Smith, we know that in the work of the Creation, the Lord organized elements
that had already existed (see Abraham 3:24). He did not create the world “out of
nothing,” as some people believe.”
As our readers know we’ve been posting the weekly Old Testament Sunday school lessons the Church is going through and to save my sanity I’ve put them all in one place to make it easier to access. If you want to find out what they taught when, you can find the widget over on the right!
We’re praying you use these as a witnessing tool or if you’re LDS you allow the information presented here to give you further insight about God and who He is. We do this out of respect and not to bash the Mormons.
With Love in Christ;
1 Cor 1:18
Again we find ourselves in this next lesson with Moses and his description of the vision he had of the creation of the universe in Moses 1:27-42. And then Moses 2:1-25 we see a reiteration of the creation account found in Genesis 1.
This next lesson focuses on the Mormon belief that all of us lived before we came to earth in a premortal life with God. In this premortal life we lived as spirit children of God his goddess wife/wives. These spirit children include every person who has ever been born including Jesus and Satan, and 1/3 of the spirits who chose to follow Satan.
Baptismal Interview Questions – Part 5
One thing you’ll learn as you begin the process of converting to Mormonism is that Mormons think of themselves as a “covenant keeping people”. They believe they enter into and make many covenants with God throughout their lives, the first being the one they enter into when they’re baptized into the Mormon Church. This final question in the interview process asks for their commitment to keep this covenant.

Words of Joseph Smith, pg 84; “”President [Brigham Young] gave it as his opinion that the Earth did not dwell in the sphere in which it did when it was created, but that it was banished from its more glorious state or orbit of revolution for man’s sake” (“Record of Acts of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles,” 1849 Record Book, p. 41, Church Archives). This and other statements like it probably had their origin with teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith.” – Compiled and edited by Andrew F. Ehat & Lyndon W. Cook, BYU Religious Studies Center, 1980
“If you left the Mormon church because you “discovered” the power of the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ outside of the LDS church, I’m sorry you never understood that before you left. But plenty of people do.” – Lynda

September 5 – Romans 1:18-20; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
Plan of Salvation: Men Appointed to Die
Alma 42:5-6; “For behold, if Adam had put forth his hand immediately, and partaken of the tree of life, he would have lived forever, according to the word of God, having no space for repentance; yea, and also the word of God would have been void, and the great plan of salvation would have been frustrated. 6 But behold, it was appointed unto man to die—therefore, as they were cut off from the tree of life they should be cut off from the face of the earth—and man became lost forever, yea, they became fallen man.”
Genesis 1:28; “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
As I’ve watched the news coverage from the presidential debates I’ve heard a lot about what people think will happen if Romney is elected or Obama is re-elected. I’ve read what people have said online and heard the comments others have made about their fears of what the next four years will hold for us if the other guy wins.
Ensign, November 2006, pg 38; “A testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will always include these clear and simple truths:
–God lives. He is our loving Father in Heaven, and we are His children.
–Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and the Savior of the world.
–Joseph Smith is the prophet of God through whom the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored in the latter days.
–The Book of Mormon is the word of God.”
– Dieter F. Uchtdorf,
“The Power of a Personal Testimony”
The book of Moses in the Pearl of Great Price is the account of the creation. Moses 2:1-31 is much like the account of the creation as told in the Bible. Now if we skip over to Abraham chapters 4 and 5 in the Pearl of Great Price we see an entirely different story of the creation. Here it tells the Mormon that the ‘Gods’ created the earth and then created man. This is just one example of how the Mormons became confused.
