Mormon Newsroom IconChurch News, ‘1492 Voyage Fulfilled Prophecy,’ September 26, 1992

Looking at the title of this newsroom announcement would lead one to believe there’s hard proof Columbus’ voyage fulfilled a prophecy. Right?


This church news announcement has to be one of the most insidious things I’ve seen from the Church. It’s filled with deliberate attempts to confuse people like my mother, and cause overall false hope about something that didn’t happen to begin with.

We’re listing a review on key elements from this announcement, followed by our questions about this whole thing. The entire ‘prophecy’ is listed thereafter.

Anyone serious about the Lord has to wonder…Why would the leadership of a ‘God fearing’ church say things like this??????

Luke 17:2 “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

Jeremiah 23:21 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.”

linda-k-burton-largeCES Devotional for Young Adults, ‘Tuning Our Hearts to the Voice of the Spirit,’ January 2014; “The prophet Mormon’s counsel about following the Light of Christ can help us know how to receive the Holy Ghost. Mormon said:

Moroni 7:16–17 “For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

“But whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do evil, and believe not in Christ, and deny him, and serve not God, then ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of the devil; for after this manner doth the devil work, for he persuadeth no man to do good, no, not one; neither do his angels; neither do they who subject themselves unto him.” – Linda K. Burton

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”.

byu_studiesIn all the years I’ve dealt with Mormonism, one important thing I’ve learned is that many crucial elements needed to take place in order for the Church to be where it is now. Our lesson today shows four key pieces of how this happened.

The other day I came upon an article that helped add to the dimension of how Mormonism came to be. The article, written by Gordon Irving, appeared in the 1973 BYU Studies papers, and to say it was revealing would be a gross understatement! Mr. Irving outlined four ‘polemic tools’ (as he phrased it) Mormons used to entice Christians away from the body of Christ.

 1 Thessalonians 4:8 “He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.”

mailbagOur Bible verse today is the one of the reasons for this ministry. The good Lord has always been able to lovingly remind me of what He saved me from by working for Him and the world of Mormonism.

The e-mails today are actually some of the comments we receive on our blog and website. If/when you might have a few moments we could really use the help of our dear Christian friends in responding to all those who write to us! The website gets a lot of traffic, and the blog gets its fair share, but not nearly the amount the website does.

The main thing we’re asking for is prayer! Please, pray for the Mormons who write in won’t you? More times than not, there’s a lot of anger going on in their hearts and as you’ll see in what we’ve included here, today’s no different.

Also pray for us here at LAM!  We’re becoming pretty busy with the comments, articles, e-mails and phone calls so we could use prayer. I’ll always be convinced the Lord hears us when we pray and provides!

Thanks so much my faithful friends!

PS: I have not changed any of the spelling or grammar in the notes.

With Love in Christ;


1 Cor. 1:18
