Restoration of the Gospel “The gospel of Jesus Christ was lost from the earth through the apostasy that took place following the earthly ministry of Christ’s Apostles. That apostasy made necessary the Restoration of the gospel. Through visions, the ministering of angels, and revelations to men on the earth, God restored the gospel. The Restoration started with the Prophet Joseph Smith (JS—H 1; D&C 128:20–21) and has continued to the present through the work of the Lord’s living prophets.” – LDS.org Continue Reading »

Intelligent People in Darkness Rejecting Joseph

 Journal of Discourses 8:223 “Every intelligent person under the heavens that does NOT, when informed, acknowledge that Joseph Smith, jun. is a Prophet of God, is in darkness, and is opposed to us and to Jesus and his kingdom on the earth.

Mormon Dilemma 80

According to the LDS Church What is a Cult?

In Mormon Doctrine, pp. 174 & 699, Bruce McConkie defined a cult as “sects”. 

Under the sects section it says;See APOSTASY, CHRISTIANITY, CREEDS, FIRST VISION, HARLOTS. Division and dissension, contention, confusion and discord — these are among the prevailing characteristics of the sects of Christendom.”

Letter on Journal of Discourses “Dear … (name blotted out)

In having in your library, the 26 volumes of the “JOURNALS OF DISCOURSES, you have a library containing the sermons of the Presidents and Apostles of the Church. If anyone tells you that the sermons found therein are not recognized by the Church, they know not what they are talking about. I am sure that the individual is not anyone in authority — certainly not among the General Authorities. It could be a stake authority or a ward authority, but the opinion that the individual or individuals has expressed to you is absolutely erroneous.

If you will kindly turn to the title page of any of them, you will observe that they were published by P # D* and F. S. W* Richards, 15 Wilton St., London, England, and distributed by the Latter-day Saints Book Depot, 35 Jewin Street. This was the printing office where all of the Church publications were printed in England in the early days of the opening of the British Mission, Continue Reading »

† In all our busyness of weekend barbecues and family reunions, we’re taking time to remember why…

Memorial-Day 2016

Today we’re taking another look at the self-proclaimed authority Joseph Smith bestowed upon himself. Above all things, don’t forget to pray for Jesus to open the eyes of Mormons who’ve fallen for the trickeries of Mr. Smith. The following article was originally published in 2015 and still a great tool to show how Smith had no authority at all.

How did Joseph Smith receive the authority to hold the keys of priesthood?       

This question should be one of the most important questions to ask the Mormon people.  The LDS Church says that “priesthood is power” so this means they view themselves as the only authority to speak for and act in behalf of God.

I had the privilege of asking my dear friend Ed Decker to write a chapter in my mentoring handbook and so we’re answering our dilemma question today with Ed’s contribution!
