Mormon Decisions 10New Era, January 2014, p 31; “Aid from the Unseen World…Perhaps if we would do our work in behalf of those of the unseen world who hunger and pray for the work we can do for them, the unseen world would in return give us help in this day of our urgent need. There are more in that other world than there are here. There is more power and strength there than we have here upon this earth. (5. John A. Widtsoe, in Conference Report, Apr. 1943, 39.)”

April 13 – 1 Cor. 15:16, 29; “For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:  Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?”

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The name of this week’s lesson is “Come to the House of the Lord” and it centers on activities that take place in the OT temple and the LDS temples today.

I’m starting this review with quoting the very last thing the teacher’s instruction manual said for lesson #30.

“Challenge class members to be more dedicated in their study of the scriptures.”

March Witnessing Tip of the DayMarch 1 – Hebrews 9:14 tells us the worthlessness of dead works.  It says; “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Hearts Bound Together,” May 2005, 80; “When you were baptized, your ancestors looked down on you with hope. Perhaps after centuries, they rejoiced to see one of their descendants make a covenant to find them and to offer them freedom. In your reunion, you will see in their eyes either gratitude or terrible disappointment. Their hearts are bound to you. Their hope is in your hands. You will have more than your own strength as you choose to labor on to find them”. – Henry B. Eyring

Today I received an incredibly cool e-mail from a researcher and writer based in Salt Lake City that I’ve admired for years now.  Her reports have exposed the Church’s practice of posthumous baptisms for the dead even after the Church has publicly announced they’ve stopped.

Helen Radkey sent me a PDF version of her latest report on the inner workings of the Mormon Church’s polygamy endowments that are taking place inside Mormon temples even today.

Necromancy and Witchcraft at Hill Cumorah

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 19:38; “When Joseph got the plates, the angel instructed him to carry them back to the hill Cumorah, which he did. Oliver says that when Joseph and Oliver went there, the hill opened, and they walked into a cave, in which there was a large and spacious room. He says he did not think, at the time, whether they had the light of the sun or artificial light; but that it was just as light as day. They laid the plates on a table; it was a large table that stood in the room. Under this table there was a pile of plates as much as two feet high, and there were altogether in this room more plates than probably many wagon loads; they were piled up in the corners and along the walls. The first time they went there the sword of Laban hung upon the wall; but when they went again it had been taken down and laid upon the table across the gold plates; it was unsheathed, and on it was written these words: “This sword will never be sheathed again until the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our God and his Christ.”” – Brigham Young, Farmington, Utah, June 17, 1877

“The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our dead.” Joseph Smith

Doing genealogy research is a hobby many people enjoy. It can be fun to see where your family came from and to get a glimpse into what the lives of your ancestors might have been like many years ago. Mormons enjoy doing genealogy research as well, but for them it’s moved past being just something to do for fun and into a full blown obsession.

Family history work is a vital part to the Mormons salvation, or so they believe. They believe it’s also an important tool God uses so they can assist Him in redeeming the dead.

Dead People in Mormon Temples

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 19:229; “…before I left St. George, the spirits of the dead gathered around me, wanting to know why we did not redeem them. Said they, “You have had the use of the Endowment House for a number of years, and yet nothing has ever been done for us. We laid the foundation of the government you now enjoy, and we never apostatized from it, but we remained true to it and were faithful to God.” There were the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and they waited on me for two days and two nights…

Moroni 3The story of Moroni goes hand in hand with anything to do with Joseph Smith. If there’s no Moroni, there’s no restoration of the gospel and no first vision. Ahh, but the story of the first vision includes the lesser known version that Nephi, not Moroni, showed up to tell Joseph about the restoration.

August 23 – Luke 9:59-60; “And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.”

Psalm 3:8 – Salvation belongs to the Lord.

The Mormon Church puts a huge burden on the members of the church to help redeem the dead and participate in the work of salvation as they share the Mormon gospel with others not of their faith. This burden is placed on their shoulders at a very young age as they prepare to be baptized and from there prepare to attend the temple as a young man or woman performing baptisms for the dead.
