2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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.”

General Conference, ‘The Great Plan’ April 2020 “…modern revelation teaches us that our progress need not conclude with the end of mortality. Little has been revealed about this important assurance.

We are told that this life is the time to prepare to meet God and that we should not procrastinate our repentance (see Alma 34:32–33).

Still, we are taught that in the spirit world the gospel is preached even to “the wicked and the disobedient who had rejected the truth” (Doctrine and Covenants 138:29) and that those taught there are capable of repentance in advance of the Final Judgment (see verses 31–34, 57–59).” — Dallin Oaks Continue Reading »

General Conference, ‘Abound with Blessings’, April 2019 “…when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated. … That being said, you do not earn a blessing—that notion is false—but you do have to qualify for it.

Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Continue Reading »

 While writing about Russell Nelson’s announcement at General Conference, I received an e-mail from Melissa asking if I had heard about the very same talk.

It was confirmation to both of us that we needed to point out some of the lies he told to warn people about the dangers in his message. There’s no doubt the narrative of Mr. Nelson’s talk was an exhaustive showcase of pious platitudes. However, for the sake of brevity, we’ve limited ourselves to just four of his lies.  Our comments/questions are listed below. Continue Reading »

General Conference, ‘The Great Plan’ April 2020 “The restored gospel of Jesus Christ gives us a unique perspective on the subjects of chastity, marriage, and the bearing of children.

It teaches that marriage according to God’s plan is necessary for accomplishing the purpose of God’s plan, to provide the divinely appointed setting for mortal birth, and to prepare family members for eternal life.” — Dallin Oaks Continue Reading »

‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ John 14:6

Journal of Discourses 9:319-320 “There is not another religion so popular as this in the courts of heaven. Without the garb of a Saint you cannot be admitted to the presence of the Father, and to Jesus, the Mediator between God and man. No religion is popular there but the religion of the Bible. …

“But,” says a Presbyterian, “Abraham was a polygamist.” He was. “And you say that his religion is popular in heaven.”

It is the only religion acknowledged there. I have not time now to dwell upon all the points of Abraham’s faith, but he did believe in a plurality of wives, and was a practical polygamist. …

But is the religion of any one of the sects, as a whole, the religion of heaven? It is not. We all desire to join the popular party. Light, truth, and intelligence are the side that is popular with the heavens, and the side that will rule, govern, and control the nations. If we join that society we then all become popular with the popular party…” — Brigham Young, Bowery in Salt Lake City, July 6, 1862 Continue Reading »
