Hebrews 9:22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

Today we’re looking at a passage in the Book of Ether that has to be one of the strangest, not to mention blasphemous stories, found in the Book of Mormon.

Our prayer is for Mormons to discover what it says in Hebrews 9:22, and in so doing, come to know that everything in this BoM story is absolutely wrong. Check out what it says, and compare it with our findings from the Bible!

Ether 3:9-13, 19; “And the Lord said unto him: Because of thy faith thou hast seen that I shall take upon me flesh and blood; and never has man come before me with such exceeding faith as thou hast; for were it not so ye could not have seen my finger. Sawest thou more than this?

10 And he answered: Nay; Lord, show thyself unto me.

11 And the Lord said unto him: Believest thou the words which I shall speak?

12 And he answered: Yea, Lord, I know that thou speakest the truth, for thou art a God of truth, and canst not lie.

13 And when he had said these words, behold, the Lord showed himself unto him, and said: Because thou knowest these things ye are redeemed from the fall; therefore ye are brought back into my presence; therefore I show myself unto you.

19 And because of the knowledge of this man he could not be kept from beholding within the veil; and he saw the finger of Jesus, which, when he saw, he fell with fear; for he knew that it was the finger of the Lord; and he had faith no longer, for he knew, nothing doubting.”

 June 22 – Are you born of the Spirit? John 3:5-6; “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures”.

In the December 2016 issue of Ensign, LDS Apostle Russell Ballard wrote in an article on how times have changed, and so must the teaching methods of the Church. Necessitating the change, he said, is the way people retrieve info nowadays.

The internet has changed everything, for all of  us, that is for sure. No longer are we placing books on hold at the library to Xerox an obscure reference to something we’re studying. Nor are we having to reserve a section of our homes for oversized dictionaries, and outdated sets of Encyclopedias. All one has to do now is boot up a 3×5” phone, and your eyeballs are beholding everything you need to know. Who knew, right?

Well, this is the dilemma the LDS Church has found themselves in today. Try as they might, they can no longer get away with telling members in a class ‘Oh, we’ll find out about that someday’.

‘Someday’ has arrived.

   June 21 – One verse out of context makes for disastrous theology. Luke 22:44; “And being in agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”

  June 20 – Jesus. Is. God. Col. 2:8-9; “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”

Gathering info on the latest membership stats of the LDS Church provided more info than anticipated, on Cumorah.com. The site, run by Matt Martinich, has provided a wealth of demographic info spanning the world over.

Mr. Martinich is unabashedly Mormon, of this, there’s no doubt. Another thing not to doubt is if you need a stat on Mormons for any area worldwide, this is your go to guy. While we don’t necessarily agree with all of his personal philosophies, the numbers he provides are spot on.
