“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16

Liahona, ‘Grow into the Principle of Revelation’, January 2021 “When we couple increased purity and obedience with fasting, diligent seeking, study of the scriptures and the words of living prophets, and temple and family history work, the heavens will open. The Lord, in turn, will fulfill His promise: “I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind” (Doctrine and Covenants 11:13).

We may need to be patient, but God will speak to us in His own way and in His own time. … May we put our faith into action, calling upon Him, living worthy of His promised inspiration…” —— Russell Nelson Continue Reading »

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” 2 Corinthians 6:17

False prophecies A-Z!

Although none of the teachings in the LDS Church are biblically sound, some are more heretical than others that catch our attention. About once a year we’ll gather some of those and put them into another edition for our ongoing series; ‘Worst of the Worst Mormon Quotes’. You can find this and the rest of the series in 3,000+ Reasons to Leave Mormonism.

We can’t stress enough the reason we do this isn’t to bash or demean, the Mormon people. We do this because of our deep concern for the welfare of their souls. The other reason is to warn the body of Christ and show how Mormonism is not a true Christian organization. We pray that Christians will use the quotes as tools in a loving manner as they witness to their friends and loved ones.

As always, we’re also praying for all Mormons to have a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus and Him crucified so we can make an end to this series!

With Love in Christ –

January 22 – Everlasting Burnings – Good or Bad? Who goes to everlasting burnings and why? Isaiah 33:12, 14. “And the people shall be as the burnings of lime…the sinners in Zion are afraid; fearlfulness hath surprised the hypocrites.  Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

Moses 3:9 “And out of the ground made I, the Lord God, to grow every tree, naturally, that is pleasant to the sight of man; and man could behold it. And it became also a living soul. For it was spiritual in the day that I created it; for it remaineth in the sphere in which I, God, created it, yea, even all things which I prepared for the use of man; and man saw that it was good for food. And I, the Lord God, planted the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” [emp. added] Continue Reading »

Exodus 3:13-14 “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”

John 4:26; “Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.”

John 8:58 “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”

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 »
