November 30 – Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

“My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.” Psalm 84:2

General Conference, ‘Moving Forward’, October 2020 “We are here on earth to be tested to see if we will choose to follow Jesus Christ, to repent regularly, to learn, and to progress. Our spirits long to progress.” — Russell Nelson Continue Reading »

Today we’re taking another look at Henry Eyring’s talk from this past General Conference. In our previous article, we focused on the anachronisms in Eyring’s talk, but this time we’re looking at the racist context from the references he used from the Book of Moses.

We’re comparing what Mr. Eyring said with God’s word. You’ll see our comments/questions in red font.

General Conference, ‘Sisters in Zion’, October 2020 “We know that the Savior will come to a people who have been gathered and prepared to live as the people did in the city of Enoch. The people there were united in faith in Jesus Christ and had become so completely pure that they were taken up to heaven. …

There’s no such city in the Bible.

This dispensation is distinct in that the Lord will lead us to become prepared to be like the city of Enoch. He has described through His apostles and prophets what that transformation to a Zion people will entail.

This means you should ready yourself for more works.  Continue Reading »

Today we’re looking at a small portion of the latest Church Handbook. To say it was disheartening would be an understatement. Sadly, however, it was the typical thing one would expect from LDS, inc.

Near the beginning of their lesson plan, you’ll find a systematic method of pointing to their belief in godhood status, and the importance of being self-reliant, both spiritually, and temporally.

We’ve listed some of the bullet-point topics from this section below, and compared them to what the Bible says. Our remarks are in red font. To read their lesson in full, see General Handbook Work of Salvation.

We pray you stay safe this holiday season ~ and most importantly, remember to stay focused on our Lord, not the things around us.

2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ’.

May you, and yours, be blessed this holiday as we thank our Lord for His provisions, and we thank you for your support! With Love in Christ – Life After Ministries 

 November 25 — Jesus; The Lamb on the Throne. Zechariah 2:10-13 “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. 13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.”

Revelation 5:136:921:24 “And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever. 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. 21:24  And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.” Continue Reading »

Liahona, ‘Why We Need Jesus Christ’, December 2020

Today we’re looking at an article in the upcoming Liahona. This article was supposed to be focused on Jesus’ birth, but as you’ll see in the text, it was far from anything to do with our Lord.

For the sake of brevity, we’re only looking at a few of the things mentioned. Originally, D. Todd Christofferson gave this talk at a 2017 BYU devotional. To read his talk in full, the link is provided above.

We’ve inserted comments/questions below. Continue Reading »

Today we’re looking at timing, and how Joseph Smith lied about events in the Garden of Eden.

Moses 2:27-28 “And I, God, created man in mine own image, in the image of mine Only Begotten created I him; male and female created I them. 28 And I, God, blessed them, and 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.” Continue Reading »

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Doctrines of Salvation 1:58 “THE FIRST MAN OF ALL MEN.” Many revelations attest the truth that Adam was the first man. The Prophet corrected the genealogy of Christ as given in Luke so that it includes this statement: “Adam who was formed of God, and the first man upon the earth.” — Joseph Fielding Smith Continue Reading »

‘Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.’ Matthew 5:14

Ensign, ‘Overcome Even as I Overcame’, May 1987 “To help us become true disciples, the Lord has given us prophets and scriptures to strengthen us…

Feasting upon the fulness of the gospel will help us to overcome. Additionally, if we will keep our covenants, the covenants will keep us spiritually safe. …

However, our collective light does not yet shine brightly enough to be “a standard for the nations” (D&C 115:5).”

The Church would grow much faster now, numerically and spiritually, if it were not for the wickedness of the world…

It would also grow much faster if you and I were better by taking up the Christian cross daily (see Luke 9:23) …

Ours will be a time of great inversion as well as perversion, as some will call good evil and evil good (see Isa. 5:20; 2 Ne. 15:20; D&C 64:16; 2 Ne. 2:5). …

Peace has already been taken from the earth (see D&C 1:35).

Nation will rise against nation (see Matt. 24:7). It will also be a time of hardening as the love of many waxes cold and iniquity abounds (see D&C 45:27).” — Neal Maxwell Continue Reading »

General Conference, ‘Return and Receive’, April 2017 “He [Satan] uses loud voices—voices that seek to drown out the small and still voice of the Holy Spirit that can show us “all things” we should do to return and receive.

These voices belong to those who disregard gospel truth and who use the internet, social and print media, radio, television, and movies to present in an enticing way immorality…

These voices may also include well-intentioned individuals who are blinded by the secular philosophies of men and women and who seek to destroy the faith and divert the eternal focus of those who are simply trying to return to the presence of God…” — M. Russell Ballard Continue Reading »

2014 Presentation of Jesus with Simeon

November 19 – LDS: Origin of Holy Spirit is Speculative, and Fruitless. Haggai 2:6-9 “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Luke 2:27-32 “And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.”

November 18 — Mormons Reject God’s Fulfilled Promise. Micah 5:2c; “…whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”

John 8:58; “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” Continue Reading »

Mormonism and the Negro, p. 20 “We believe that God is our Creator, that He is an all-wise God, that He is concerned about the eternal welfare of all His Children, one as well as another. We believe that He is all-powerful, and controls in the destiny of mankind and all that pertains to it. We further believe in the concept of eternal progress: that as man is God once was, and as God is, man may become. (May become, not necessarily will become, for that would not make allowance for free agency. We may become like God, or we may become like Satan, or we may become something in between these two extremes.).” — John J. Stewart Continue Reading »

November 16 — Prophecy Fulfilled in House of Bread Micah 5:2a “But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah…”

Matthew 2:1-2 “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Continue Reading »

The Church and the Negroid People, pp. 1-3 “The problem of the races is not new. The various races have been with us since written history began. … What the mark was that came upon Cain and which enabled others to distinguish him from the other children of Adam is not made clear.

The Bible does not mention if or how the curse and mark placed upon Cain survived the great flood. In the account of Noah and his sons there is a curse referred to as being placed on Canaan, son of Ham by his grandfather Noah. …

The Biblical account indicates a separation of the descendants of Canaan from the lands occupied by the descendants of Shem and Japheth.

The Biblical writers make little attempt to record the history of other than Israelite peoples and distinguish these as descendants of Shem. These we find very conscious of racial streams.

Thus, Abraham sends for a woman from among his own people at Haran as wife for his son Isaac. And Isaac’s son finds a wife in the same land. The Jews returning from Babylon after the captivity reestablished Jerusalem but purged out all who could not trace their genealogy to Israel. …” — William E. Berrett, Vice President of BYU [emp. added] Continue Reading »

 November 10 – The Promised One. Galatians 3:29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

November 13 —  Whosoever Shall Call on the Mormon Prophet. Joel 2:32; “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”

Romans. 10:12-13; “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Continue Reading »

Doctrine and Covenants 58:42 “Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more.” Continue Reading »

Even though there’s a lot of stuff going on around this country, and the world, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to thank the Lord for His blessing of living in this country. America wouldn’t be who she is without the generous gift of those who willingly serve to keep all of us safe, and for the times they’ve stepped in for emergencies like that of Katrina, and other natural disasters we’ve lived through!

If you’re a veteran – THANK YOU! May God bless you, and your family for serving all of us that call the USA home!

With Love in Christ; Life After Ministries
