Today we’re looking at a speech given by a Mormon apostle, George Quayle Cannon. Mr. Cannon served Cannon George Qas a political strategist under four Mormon prophets; Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, and Lorenzo Snow.

The reason we’re looking at this particular speech is because of the numerous lies he tried to pass off as truth, and the way he kept maligning Christians. What Christian do you know that goes about demeaning his brothers and sisters in Christ?

We’ve trimmed this reference down considerably because of its length. If you’d like to read it in full, the link is provided below. Our remarks are in red.

 What Think Ye of Salvation by Grace? “The first great heresy, sweeping like a prairie fire through McConkie,Bruce_clrthe struggling branches of a newly born Christianity, destroyed the worship of the true God. And the second, a heresy originating in the same courts of darkness, destroyed that very atonement of God’s only Son.

This second heresy—and it is the delusion and mania that prevails to this day in the great evangelical body of Protestantism—is the doctrine that we are justified by faith alone, without the works of the law. It is the doctrine that we are saved by grace alone, without works. It is the doctrine that we may be born again simply by confessing the Lord Jesus with our lips while we continue to live in our sins…

While driving along a highway in my car, I was listening to the radio sermon of one of these evangelists who was preaching of salvation by grace alone. He said all anyone had to do to be saved was to believe in Christ and perform an affirmative act of confession…

Unfortunately, I did not accept his generous invitation to gain instant salvation; and so I suppose my opportunity is lost forever!

As with the proposal of Lucifer in the preexistence to save all mankind, so with the doctrine of salvation by grace alone, without works, as it is taught in modern Christendom — both concepts are false. There is no salvation in either of them. They both come from the same source; they are not of God.” – Bruce R. McConkie, January 10, 1984

Times & Seasons, vol. 4 (November 1842-November 1843): p. 194; “…There was no Greek or Latin upon the plates from which I, through the grace of God, translated the Book of Mormon Let the language of that book speak for itself.”

AtonementIt seems hard to believe that five years has gone by since we published the Book of Mormon Greek and Latin word chart.

The reason we’re looking at it today stems from a search engine report I received on our blog and website. Someone was looking for the number of times the word ‘atonement’ shows up in the Book of Mormon. After looking over our chart, I discovered we inadvertently forgot to include this word! Yikes!
