January 19 – Book of Joseph. Testing for Truth, Part 3 “Many people refuse to use the Bible as a standard for truth. They will often claim that the Bible is not trustworthy, after all, it’s thousands of years old, and it’s probably been corrupted over the years…

Journal of Discourses 3:265-266 “This revelation, which God gave to Joseph, was for the express purpose of providing a channel for the organization of tabernacles, for those spirits to occupy who have been reserved to come forth in the kingdom of God, and that they might not be obliged to take tabernacles out of the kingdom of God. …

Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned… …but the Saints who live their religion will be exalted…” —— Brigham Young, Provo, Utah, July 14, 1855. Continue Reading »

 January 16 – Is Mormonism True Christianity? Today we’re looking at a subject in the LDS Gospel Topic Section of their website. I’ve become quite enamored with how the Bible provides answers to topics that speak directly to contemporary issues for us today. It’s a reminder that God obviously knew beforehand! Notice in their statement they make the accusation that sincere seekers of truth will accept their variant belief. Furthermore, freedom to worship as you please doesn’t mean you’re exempt from following rules. If you’re not worshiping the right Jesus, it still means you’re not Christian, regardless of what freedoms you may or may not have. Pray that God will open their hearts to this truth!

Journal of Discourses 3:266 “…now if I be made the king and lawgiver to my family, and if I have many sons, I shall become the father of many fathers, for they will have sons, and their sons will have sons, and so on, from generation to generation, and, in this way, I may become the father of many fathers, or the king of many kings. This will constitute every man a prince, king, lord, or whatever the Father sees fit to confer upon us.

In this way we can become King of kings, and Lord of lords, or Father of fathers, or Prince of princes, and this is the only course, for another man is not going to raise up a kingdom for you. …” —— Brigham Young, Provo, Utah, July 14, 1855. Continue Reading »

Liahona, ‘Grow into the Principle of Revelation’, January 2021 “Worthy to Receive Revelation … Refining our ability to recognize the whisperings of the Holy Ghost and increasing our capacity to receive revelation requires worthiness. Worthiness does not require perfection, but it requires that we strive for increased purity.

The Lord expects daily effort, daily improvement, daily repentance. Worthiness brings purity, and purity qualifies us for the Holy Ghost. As we take “the Holy Spirit for [our] guide” (Doctrine and Covenants 45:57), we qualify for personal revelation.” — Russell Nelson Continue Reading »

 January 12 — Which Master Do You Serve? Jeremiah 23:5-6 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”

John 13:13 “Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.” Continue Reading »

One glaring problem in the Church News Report below is timing. You’ll want to notice the date this was written. It was 1992. Why are they using the phrase ‘electronic media’? In 1993 only 1% of the info available on computers was available to the public. A Pew Report stated that only 3% of American households had signed on to the internet by 1995

While Mr. Asay busied himself with calling people deceitful, it’s odd he never applied the same terminology to himself.

LDS Church News, “’Anti-Christs’ Employ Similar Patterns of Deceit” “…When we read about the anti-Christs of former days, we marvel at how perverted their thinking became, and we marvel at how successful they were in deceiving men and women. We also wonder why some of the people were so gullible—so easily misled. And with all this marveling and wondering, we tend to niche the anti-Christs in some corner of ancient history and go about our unguarded ways. This is dangerous. It could result in loss of faith; and, in a spiritual sense, it could put us out of existence.”

‘For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.’ Matthew 24:24.

 Today is part 2 of our look at an article in the latest church magazine, Liahona, ‘What Did Moroni Teach Joseph Smith?’, January 2021.

Yesterday we looked at five lies, some of which included witchcraft, necromancy, and Joseph’s ill-gotten fame.

Today we’ll see how neither Moroni, nor Joseph, opted for defending the Lord. Moroni did nothing more than feed a teenager’s inflated ego. Based on the Church’s track record, one must wonder if this even happened at all.

If you’re LDS, we want to reiterate we don’t say these things to demean or bash you. Our hearts are broken for the way this church has lied, and led members away from Jesus, not to Him.

We pray you’ll look at the evidence and compare all of it objectively – your very soul depends on it!

As Paul Harvey used to say…now for the rest of this story!

‘For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.’ 2 Corinthians 11:13-14

 Today and tomorrow, we’ll be looking at an article in the latest Liahona on how the Lord introduced the Mormon gospel.

This article was a reminder of why all Christians should be on alert about Mormonism. The open display of rebellion was heartbreaking.

To read their article in full, see Liahona, ‘What Did Moroni Teach Joseph Smith?’, January 2021. Our purpose in doing this is to compare what they’ve said to what God has revealed in His word.

To be sure, the origins of the LDS Church are far removed from how biblical Christianity began. The Church traces its beginning to one person: Joseph Smith, whereas Christianity traces its roots to God’s relationship with His creation.

The focus of their article was to show the numerous times Moroni was seen floating in the air with the message there existed ‘Another Testament of Jesus Christ’. This new and updated gospel included God’s pronouncement He thought the bride of Christ was nothing more than the ‘whore of Babylon’.

Today we’re looking at lies #1-5, and tomorrow lies #6-10. Continue Reading »

1 Nephi 13:15 “And I beheld the Spirit of the Lord, that it was upon the Gentiles, and they did prosper and obtain the land for their inheritance; and I beheld that they were white, and exceedingly fair and beautiful, like unto my people before they were slain.” Continue Reading »

 January 5 – LDS Rejection of All Things Created by Jesus. Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

January 3 –– Do Mormons Help Fulfill God’s Prophecies? Psalm 2:1 “WHY do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”

Acts 4:25-28 “Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.”

‘Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.’ 2 Corinthians 9:7

‘…Let him give…not out of necessity…’.

Today we’re looking at an article in the December Ensign, and pulled a few things that caught my attention. To read their article in full, see link provided below.

The objective in looking at this is threefold —

  1. To compare it with what God says in His word.
  2. To show how heartbreaking it is people have bought into such horrendous lies.
  3. To garner prayers of Christians for the Mormon people.

PRAYING FOR ALL TO HAVE A SAFE & BLESSED NEW YEAR FOR ALL OF 2021!

LIFE AFTER MINISTRIES 

‘Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.’ John 14:17

Ensign, ‘From Banner to Compass’, December 2020 “For five decades, the Ensign, published in English, stood as a banner “to the nations” (Isaiah 5:26), calling to mind the hymn that proclaims, “Zion’s standard is unfurled” (“The Morning Breaks,” Hymns, no. 1). Beginning in January 2021, it merges with the Liahona, the international Church magazine published in multiple languages worldwide. The new Liahona will serve as a spiritual compass guiding us to our Savior, Jesus Christ, as we give “faith and diligence and heed” (1 Nephi 16:28) to the voice of the Lord and His prophets.” — Richard M. Romney Continue Reading »
