General Conference, ‘Lord, I believe,’ April 2013 “Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it. So should we.” — Jeffery R. Holland Continue Reading »

 February 18 – Being Reverent: Don’t Listen to Music on Your Way to Temple. Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Conference Report October 1926, 117 In reference to the modern inventions, then apostle Joseph Fielding Smith, made the following comments – “…I think this is very wonderful; and yet, this great discovery [the radio] did not come through revelation to a member of the Church; it was not sent through one who holds the Priesthood, but it came through one not of the Church but who was inspired of the Lord to give this great blessing to the world.

So with many other things, the automobile and the airplane as means of transportation; the talking machine and all of these great discoveries that have come through scientific research, they have come, most of them, outside of the Church. Yet I maintain that had there been no restoration of the gospel, and no organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there would have been no radio; there would have been no airplane, and there would not have been the wonderul [sic] discoveries in medicine, chemistry, electricity, and the many other things wherein the world has been benefited by such discoveries.

Under such conditions these blessings would have been withheld, for they belong to the Dispensation of the Fulness of Times of which the restoration of the gospel and the organization of the Church constitute the central point…” — Joseph Fielding Smith [emp. added] Continue Reading »

February 17 – JST Bible Didn’t Fix KJV ‘Flaws’. Genesis 1:26-27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image,  after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

 Seventy’s Course in Theology [Salt Lake City: Deseret News, 1907-1912], 1:166 “…some may deny that the mongrelization of the Southern people would offend the race notion—would corrupt or degrade the Southern stock of humanity. If so, then such a one has yet to learn the largest-writ lessons of history and the most impressive doctrines of biological science.

That the negro is markedly inferior to the Caucasian is proved both craniologically and by six thousand years of planet-wide experimentation; and that the commingling of inferior with superior must lower the higher is just as certain as that the half-sum of two and six is only four.” — B. H. Roberts Continue Reading »

February 16 – Racist Mormon Teachings. Acts 17:26 “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

 February 15 — Brotherhood With Lucifer. Colossians 1:16 “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” Continue Reading »

 I could sum up my everyday feelings as a member of the LDS Church by saying it felt like I was always walking on eggshells. Depending on which leader was speaking, or lesson taught, that scenario was a common occurrence.

Tragically, the truth about our loving God is overshadowed by years of lies. It’s been well noted by many, tactics of the Church have produced passive-aggressive people, and the results are unsettling for outsiders, and members alike.

Achieving a Celestial Marriage, p. 132Celestial Marriage Makes Women Queens and Priestesses unto Their Husbands. “If righteous men have power through the gospel and its crowning ordinance of celestial marriage to become kings and priests to rule in exaltation forever, it follows that the women by their side (without whom they cannot attain exaltation) will be queens and priestesses. (Rev. 1:6; 5:10.) Exaltation grows out of the eternal union of a man and his wife. Of those whose marriage endures in eternity , the Lord says, ‘Then shall they be gods’ (D. & C. 132:20); that is, each of them, the man and the woman, will be a god. As such they will rule over their dominions forever.” (McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, p. 613 .)” [emp. added] Continue Reading »

 February 13 — Transfigured Prophets. Matthew 17:2-3 “And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.” Continue Reading »

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” — John 4:24

 When someone looks for an explanation of who the Mormon god is, they’re sure to come across a litany of definitions. To ensure the Church does its job by confusing people, they sprinkle their list with biblical, and extra-biblical definitions. Sometimes their god is a spirit, and other times he’s an exalted man.

February 12 – Trying to Outsmart God. Genesis 3:6 “So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.”

 The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, pp. 455-456 “There are other spectacular revelations mentioned. …. Then came John the Baptist who had been beheaded by the king in a moment of weakness… [then] Peter, James and John now resurrected. So there came, step by step, a restoration of everything, and it all came by revelation, by vision, by dreams, or by deep impression.

So revelation came: sometimes with actual personal appearance of heavenly beings…. But most of the revelations of the Prophet Joseph Smith in this holy record, the Doctrine and Covenants, did not come in that manner. They came as deep impressions.” — Spencer W. Kimball [emp. added] Continue Reading »

 February 11 – Man’s Heart is Evil. Genesis 8:21 “And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.”

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

 In the past 25+ years of ministry, I’ve come across my fair share of interesting Mormon quotes. Today is one of the days we’ll be adding to our list of ‘Worst of the Worst Mormon Quotes’.

Heber C. Kimball’s speech was an interesting example of what happens when uninspired people are allowed time at a pulpit.

While I’ve trimmed Mr. Kimball’s speech down, the part I’ve left is lengthy today. The reason, I pray, will be obvious. His words were so outlandish, but they show how the Church confused members then, just as they still do today.

This is truly one of the worst quotes I’ve ever seen.

Pray for LDS members today who listen to the false teachings of their leaders who are still delivering confusing messages like this example today. Continue Reading »

 February 10 – Maligning Jesus and All of Christianity. Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Continue Reading »

An article in the January 2020 Liahona contained a weekly lesson for the LDS ‘Come Follow Me’ series they’re doing in their studies for the Book of Mormon. The lies they feed to the youth group is heartbreaking. They know these are lies and yet they keep telling the same story.

What caught our attention was the image of someone, or something, floating around in the clouds with the caption underneath stating –

In a vision, Nephi saw that many of the teachings in the Bible would be changed over time but that God would prepare a way for those truths to be restored (see 1 Nephi 13:26–40). Continue Reading »

The Latter-day Saints Millennial Star Vol. 49, No. 19, May 9, 1887, p. 301 “If we are persecuted for our religion, it is no more than we have been taught to expect. … The most encouraging words that could be uttered by Our Almighty Father to His children have been given to us. We have proved them to be true up to the present, and we know every word will be fulfilled that has been spoken concerning the future.

They who fight against Zion shall be destroyed; and the pit which has been digged shall be filled by those who digged it, unto their utter destruction.” — John Taylor Continue Reading »
