‘TIS THE SEASON for Smithmas

Joseph or JesusIn recent weeks the Church has produced a lot of material promoting the idea they want the Saints to be focused on Jesus because it is after all the Christmas season. I noticed a theme that kept running through each of the articles they produced and it had little to do with Jesus, but a lot to do with the praise and adoration of their founder, Joseph Smith. I thought it’d be good to re-post an article I wrote a few years back that outlined just how wonderful Mr. Smith was. The following was originally posted in December 2008.

     Here we are with another Thanksgiving and Christmas season upon us!  I love this time of year for the changing colors of the trees, the air smells like the season’s cold is getting ready to lay itself down upon us, and of course for the food.  Yum!
     Alas, I would be remiss if I were to go about my day in this glorious time without giving my favorite reason…Jesus!
     While December 25th may not be the actual date of Jesus’ birth, it serves as a great reminder for us as to why we celebrate to begin with!

During the first weekend of October Mormons all around the world will gather together in their homes and church buildings to watch General Conference. During the conference they’ll hear from various church leaders as well as their prophet. The messages they hear will be on many things, but I know for certain they won’t hear a message like the one Todd Friel gave here.

Mormons are so caught up in the do, do, do of their religion and achieving their own righteousness that they’ve completely missed the point of why Jesus came in the first place. I wish every Mormon could hear the true gospel message of grace, and being saved after nothing they can do.

Are you lacking Christian assurance?

Quick thought on Mormons and Grace

Today on the Facebook page of Mormon.org their post reads:

“Mormons believe that through grace, the divine help and strength given through the mercy and love of Jesus Christ, all mankind will be resurrected. Through His grace, those who desire to change for the better and live according to His gospel will feel an enduring closeness to God in this life and live in His presence after this life. How have you felt the love of Jesus Christ in your life recently?”

Blood Atonement

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 4:49-50; “Some have received the Priesthood and a knowledge of the things of God, and still they dishonor the cause of truth…I say, that there are men and women that I would advise to go to the President immediately, and ask him to appoint a committee to attend to their case; and then let a place be selected, and let that committee shed their blood. We have those amongst us that are full of all manner of abominations, those who need to have their blood shed, for water will not do, their sins are of too deep a dye.” – Jedidiah Morgan Grant, Salt Lake City, September 21, 1856

Matthew 7:1-3; “Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”

Baptism Mandatory

salt lake mormon temple 2The Seer, pg 255 (1854); “Baptism is just as essential to salvation, as Faith and Repentance. — Without being immersed in water no man can enter into the fulness of Celestial glory… But who in this generation have authority to baptize?  Only the Latter-day Saints. Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the “whore of Babylon.” – Orson Pratt

Forgiveness Dependent Upon Works

Articles of Faith, pg 99; “The first step toward the blessed state of forgiveness consists in the sinner confessing his sins; the second, in his forgiving others who have sinned against him; and the third in his showing his acceptance of Christ’s atoning sacrifice by complying with the divine requirements.” – James Talmage

Temple Worthiness Interview

The Holy Temple, Ensign, Oct. 2010; “In the temples, members of the Church who make themselves eligible can participate in the most exalted of the redeeming ordinances that have been revealed to mankind. There, in a sacred ceremony, an individual may be washed and anointed and instructed and endowed and sealed. And when we have received these blessings for ourselves, we may officiate for those who have died without having had the same opportunity. In the temples sacred ordinances are performed for the living and for the dead alike…
