general-conference-april-2012-948369-galleryThe LDS Church has listed the talk summaries of their upcoming General Conference, so we’re looking at what Mr. Dieter Uchtdorf had to share. His entire speech can be viewed at the link for the video presentation at the end of this article.

General Conference, ‘Fourth Floor, Last Door,’ October 2016;

The purpose of faith is not to change God’s will but to empower us to act on God’s will. Faith is trust—trust that God sees what we cannot and that He knows what we do not. Sometimes, trusting our own vision and judgment is not enough. …

In light of that statement, we have a question for Mr. Uctdorf.

moroni-2016Why Did Moroni Deliver the Gold Plates on September 22?

By Book of Mormon Central | Sep. 22, 2016 Mormon Life

“…Moroni’s annual visits occurred generally around the time of the Israelite harvest festival season. The initial visit on September 21 in 1823 coincided with that year’s celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. In 1824, September 22 was the eve of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and the beginning of the fall festivals.”

September Witnessing 016September 27 – John 1:12-13; “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

 Exodus 32:3-6, 8; “And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. 4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD. 6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

September Witnessing 2016September 26 – The Greatest Commandment Is To… Matthew 22:36-40; “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 . Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Isaiah 45:6; “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.”

Orson PrattToday we’re doing things a little differently – woo-hoo!! The title of this article is a good  example of how LDS doctrines lead people away from the Lord, instead of to Him.

Reality of heaven for a Christian goes something like this: after death a Christian goes to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus, and it’s there they’ll be able to see family and friends who are also saved.

For the Mormon, it’s complicated. After death they’ll expect to go to heaven to be with their spouses, and in the scenario Orson Pratt has proposed, that one couple will begin ‘multiplying their species’. They’ll continue to do this until they’ve given birth to enough children to sufficiently populate an earth like this for the extent of time their planet is in existence.
