Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000Lesson 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!

Mormon Decisions 10http://www.lds.org; “Under the direction of Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created the heavens

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.”

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000As 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;

Michelle Grim

1 Cor 1:18

The Creation

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000This next lesson in the Old Testament centers on what Mormons are taught about the Creation of the universe in the Book of Moses and Abraham.

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.

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000Like the first lesson in their study of the Old Testament lesson two has very little to do with the Bible, but has many references to other books in their canon.

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

MormonBaptisimOne 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.

Mormon Decisions 10Words 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

thinkingimageIn response to our article “Why do you love the Book of Mormon” one our Mormon readers had this to say –

“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

“the power …of the redeeming blood ….of Jesus Christ… “

Plan of Salvation: Men Appointed to Die

Mormon Decisions 10Alma 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.

–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.”

Creation

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.

Mormon Dilemma 67

Pre-existence and Creation of Man

Today’s dilemma is quite evident for the Christians.  For the Mormons this is just another example of why there is a dilemma.  One teacher proclaims one thing and another teacher or prophet proclaims just the opposite.
