Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Liahona, “Sustaining the Prophets”, November 2014; “My dear brothers and sisters, if the Restoration did anything, it shattered the age-old myth that God had stopped talking to His children. Nothing could be further from the truth. A prophet has stood at the head of God’s Church in all dispensations, from Adam to the present day. Prophets testify of Jesus Christ—of His divinity and of His earthly mission and ministry. We honor the Prophet Joseph Smith as the prophet of this last dispensation. And we honor each man who has succeeded him as President of the Church.” — Russell M. Nelson
2 Timothy 3:15; “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
The ‘age-old myth’ Mr. Nelson was referring to was perpetrated by none other than the man Nelson claims came along to ‘shatter’ it. Don’t let this man trick you into believing God had stopped talking to people! He speaks to us through His word!
Joseph Smith touted on about his mistrust of the Lord and it sits emblazoned in the Church’s canon in his own testimony JS History 1:19. It’s what drives the Church today and without it, there would be no Mormonism. Other Mormon leaders (George Cannon) picked up the same torch, telling people Christianity is devoid of power.
They’ve lied about this so they could introduce still another lie. The unsuspecting Mormon has to rely upon a prophet to hear from the Lord. This is a devastating predicament they’ve unknowingly placed themselves in!
Mr. Nelson also said that prophets have always been around. This isn’t true! And they certainly weren’t around in Adam’s day.
Our question for today:
Is sustaining the prophets more important than telling the truth about God?
Pray our Lord will open their eyes of discernment and come to a saving knowledge of His grace and mercy!
