Scrapbook of Mormon Literature, p. 536-542 “The UNKNOWN GOD REVEALED…Our Modern Altars to the Unknown God…It is a painful and confusing thing to the Christian investigator to be convinced, as he must be, by the fact that millions …are kneeling “To the Unknown God.”

One cannot say how many professed Christians really have a conscious knowledge of the God whom they reverence and whose Son they believe Jesus, the Christ, to be. But one may know without much inquiry that very few of our Christian churchmen have what we may be allowed to call “a working knowledge of God.”…They have simply apprehended that “there must be a God”…

Your appeal for the restoration of “the old time faith in a personal and known God” impels us to respond to your editorial by offering you the very faith for which you so earnestly contend. …We offer you the “old time” Faith which has been restored to the earth, with all the principles, gifts, powers and authority of ancient times. …And what more, we ask you candidly, and earnestly, to aid us in this revival of the “old time” Faith…that henceforth and forever may be lowered, both in and out of the churches, the countless thousands of altars erected to the “unknown God.” — Ben Erastus Rich Continue Reading »

‘When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.’ John 19:30

 Two comments by Dallin Oaks at General Conference serve as a reminder the Church isn’t following the true Jesus of the Bible. Our reference today was retrieved this from the Church’s Facebook page on the weekend of General Conference. See Dallin Facebook Video, or ‘Trust in the Lord’ video and transcript, for more info.

“Today at general conference I discussed what we know about the spirit world. I also shared that we should be cautious to not speculate about things we do not know.

That comment is a heads up! Mr. Oaks should’ve taken his own advice, alas, he chose instead to ‘teach for doctrine the commandments of men’ as it says in Mark 7:7. Continue Reading »

 October 21 –Satan’s Biggest Lie is Mormon Salvation. Genesis 3:4-5 “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

‘For we are his workmanship…’ Ephesians 2:10

 A few days ago Melissa told me about a post on a Facebook page that reminded me of what it’s like for members of the LDS Church. The post was a quote from a speech by Thomas Monson who was giving pointers on how to be perfect, and a Mormon scripture from 3 Nephi 12:48.

“Our goal is to achieve, to excel, to strive for perfection. Remember, however, that our business in life is not to get ahead of others but to get ahead of ourselves. To break our own record, to outstrip our yesterdays by today, to bear our trials more beautifully than we ever dreamed we could, to give as we never have given, to do our work with more force and a finer finish than ever—this is the true objective.”

 October 19 – Taylor’s Lack of Confidence in Jesus. Hebrews 13:5-6; “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

General Conference, ‘Covenant Women in Partnership with God,’ October 2019 “You cannot know when, or for what length of time, your personal mission will be focused on service in calls such as mother, leader, or ministering sister. …Yet you know from scripture and living prophets that all of these assignments will come, either in this life or in the next…daughters of God must prepare for the call to be a leader for the Lord when it comes. … It takes much the same preparation when the Lord calls His daughters to be a mother.” — Henry B.

General Conference, ‘Found Through the Power of the Book of Mormon,’ October 2019 “In order to progress toward true conversion, converts to the Church must experience the power of the truths contained in the Book of Mormon. … Each person is invited to allow the power of the truths of the Book of Mormon to find and embrace them once again. …

In order to progress toward true personal conversion, all converts must “experience and be found by the power of the truths contained in the Book of Mormon.” They must also make a serious commitment to God to strive to keep His commandments.” — Rubén V. Alliaud, General Authority Seventy Continue Reading »

2014 Jews return to IsraelIsaiah 66:18-19 “For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. 19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.”

1 Corinthians 15:6 “After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”

Amen.”

Hidden amongst the weeds of several talks at the LDS General Conferences you’ll find a handful of speeches reminding members they must stay true to covenants made to their god, aka, Mormonism. Continue Reading »

‘To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.’ Acts 26:18

The Bible verse above is our prayer for the Mormon people.

Today we’re looking at 3 quotes, and all have exhibited treacherous teachings. Each is a good summation of what they said in the talk they gave. To read their talks in full, click on corresponding links provided below.

Our main agenda with posting these things is to inform Mormons, and non-Mormons alike.

Please, pray for those who listened to these lies, and also for those who spread them. As we’ve been saying this week, if they’d turn to the Lord, they’d obviously turn from spreading lies about Him!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

‘…upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ Matthew 16:18

Today we’re looking at two quotes from a couple of talks given by two women at General Conference a few days ago.

The two women are Lisa Harkness, and Michelle Craig. To read their talks in full, see links in the article for each.

As a heads up, the numbering system we’ve used doesn’t reflect the order talks were given at the conference.

We’re praying our Christian friends will stop to pray for those who gave the talks, and those who heard their blasphemy. It’s obvious those in charge are just as confused as ever.

At the end, everyone must answer the question Whom Will You Follow? Will it be Jesus, or Joseph?
