“And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent”. Matthew 27:5

 One of the most important parts of Christianity is missing in the BoM. Its narrative excludes any mention of the temple veil, which means the spiritual significance of that all-important day is lost on the Mormon people. Continue Reading »

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 340-41 “I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, “In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.”” — April 2, 1843

Acts 17:11 “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

 Today we’re asking the Church 2 questions —

1.Why do they condemn baptizing children when they practice the very same thing?

Moroni 8:14-16 “Behold I say unto you, that he that supposeth that little children need baptism is in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity … Wo be unto them that shall pervert the ways of the Lord after this manner, for they shall perish except they repent. Wo unto such, for they are in danger of death, hell, and an endless torment.” Continue Reading »

Journal of Discourses 14:128 “…concerning our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, “To the increase of his kingdom there shall be no end.” It shall go on increasing with every cycle of eternity, as long as time endures. There shall be no end to the increase of his kingdom. His glory consisted of this; and the glory of God consists in the number of his posterity … The Latter-day Saints live for this.” ─ George Quayle Cannon, New Tabernacle, Salt Lake City, April 8, 1871.

“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” 1 Timothy 4:7

 The LDS Church claims that in 1847 Brigham Young declared, ‘This is the place’, meaning the Church had found its new forever home in the western end of the Rockies known as the ‘Wasatch Front’.

From the onset of their arrival, the truth about their polygamous ways were preached from the pulpit. Along with the false prophecy of the ‘New and Everlasting Covenant’, came other false prophecies.

Today we’re looking at the anniversary of Brigham’s infamous explanation, and his addition to Joe Smith’s false prophecy of planets, stars, and the moon’s inhabitants. Continue Reading »

Journal of Discourses 6:50 “Shedding Blood—God’s Provision for His Saints … If this people will live up to their profession— …that is, we shall never be under the necessity of shedding much of the blood of our enemies.

…I do not believe God designs that we should delight in shedding blood. … It is not the Spirit of God that leads a man or woman to shed blood—to desire to kill and slay. When the time comes that we have need to shed blood, then it will be necessary we should do it, and it will be just as innocent as to go and kill an ox when we are hungry or in the time of famine. … I think there is a Scripture somewhere that says, “By your works you are justified;” and again, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.” It is the works that God expects. …

Will our enemies come here? No, except we let them. God gives us that privilege. We have the right to let them in here or keep them out; and we choose to keep them out, and we shall do it by the help of God…

We have done the best we can; and if our enemies come upon us, God will throw them into our power, and they will become subject to us. … Are these things interesting to you, brethren? They are what you have to do, every man of you that belongs to the house of Israel.” — Heber C. Kimball, Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, November 15, 1857. Continue Reading »

Friend, February 1986, The Three Kingdoms of Heaven “Joseph and Sidney learned that there are three places for people to go in heaven when they are resurrected.

The Improvement Era, Vol. 55, No. 11, November 1952, p. 789 “Some Principles of a Happy Home … There is nothing temporary in the home of the Latter-day Saints. There is no element of transitoriness in the family relationship. To the Latter-day Saint the home is truly the basic unit of society; and parenthood is next to Godhood. The secret of good citizenship lies in the home. The secret of instilling faith in God, faith in his Son, the Redeemer of the world, faith in the organizations of the Church, lies in the home.” — David O. McKay Continue Reading »

Journal of Discourses 23:327 “HARDSHIP THE HERITAGE OF THE SAINTS…There was apparently nothing that the Savior could do that was acceptable in the eyes of the world; anything and almost everything he did was imputed to an unholy influence…it seemed necessary for the Savior to descend below all things that he might ascend above all things. So it has been with other men.

When I look at the history of Joseph Smith, I sometimes think that he came as near following the footsteps of the Savior…as anyone possibly could. Joseph Smith was called to lay down his life; he sealed his testimony with his blood, and passed through some serious trials and afflictions.

In section 122 of the Book of Doctrine and Covenants… —the Lord showed him his condition and position. He refers there to the trials and troubles he was called to pass through, and then compares them with what He Himself (the Savior) had to endure*

The Lord showed him in this revelation that these afflictions were necessary. We have been called to pass through trials many times, and I do not think we should complain, because if we had no trials we should hardly feel at home in the other world in the company of the Prophets and Apostles who were sawn asunder, crucified, etc., for the word of God and testimony of Jesus Christ…I look upon the mission of the Latter-day Saints as being as important as that of any people that ever lived in any age of the world…” ─ Wilford Woodruff, Kaysville, Utah, December 10, 1882 Continue Reading »

1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”.

 Yesterday (July 15, 2020) the Church announced the publication of Eliza Snow’s Discourses anyone can read online.

In case you’re unaware, Ms. Snow was the 2nd president of the Relief Society, and older sister of Lorenzo Snow, the Church’s 5th prophet/president. She was the 14th wife of Joe Smith, and became the 10th wife of Brigham Young, 4 months after Smith’s death. She lived from 1804 – 1887.

The Church had nothing but glowing reports about Eliza. Here in part is what they said – Continue Reading »
