Visiting Teaching Messages
Mormon grace falls way short of biblical grace! What people sat around talking about grace in 2200 BC?
The Church said Jesus died because he knew we’d have heartbreaks in life. How can this be true when His word said Jesus came to pay the price for our sins?
We’re wondering why the Church doesn’t believe the three passages of scripture they used in their message this month. Do they do this to mislead, or are they so misled they don’t realize their mistake?
Why didn’t the Church talk about Jesus in this month’s VT Message?
Do Mormons follow Jesus or their prophets?
Why are forever families given more attention than Jesus in Mormonism?
Is righteousness found in our works like family prayers, etc., or through the blood of Jesus?
If families are forever why does the Church shun those who’ve left the Church?
This month’s message was all about the importance of bringing kids into the world. Dallin Oaks stated it’s the top priority of the Church.
Temple worship is nothing more than works for the dead and it all adds up to idolatry! Find out what the Church wants you to believe vs. what God says about it.
This month’s VT Message was teaching that all of mankind are the literal offspring of God.
Mr. Monson didn’t mention Jesus’ name one time in his speech at General Conference this year. He instead chose to use the analogy of Alice in Wonderland as an example of paths people follow in life.
This month’s lesson asked teachers to study the Family Proclamation and how it can grow their faith in God. It also listed 2 other key Mormon doctrines from LDS canon that had no connection to what the topic was supposed to be. One item focused on the stones the brother of Jared saw while building the barge for the Jaredites. Overall, this lesson led to confusion.
The VT Message this month encouraged leaders to share with members that even if they’re ‘denied the blessing of marriage’, they can still participate in God’s overall plan by endorsing His commandments. Being ‘denied the blessing’ of marriage included same-sex attraction, those who are divorced, the lack of good prospects, etc.
This seems to be a lesson on veiled attempts of guilting members into obedience to the Mormon god.
The LDS Family Proclamation is used as their benchmark for determining truth. However, not one single verse from the Bible was used in this lesson. Why isn’t the Bible their benchmark?
Jesus’ divine attributes of compassion & kindness were the topics of this month’s VT Message. Sadly, they overlooked the main subject matter with the biblical references they used and that is; Jesus is God.
Hands down, this is one of the worst talks given in Mormon history. Linda Reeves, 2nd counselor of the RS, told members their #1 priority was to help the Mormon god bring more babies into the world.
Charity and love were the topics of Jesus’ divine attributes for October. Can Mormons fully appreciate the message of charity and Jesus’ love if they have the wrong Jesus?
This month’s messages focuses on the divine attributes of being meek and humble.
Why is striving to be more like Jesus is used as a way to guilt people into following their gospel and the their prophet more than it is used as a way to encouraging them to follow Jesus.
Mercy and forgiveness is a free gift for the Christian, but in Mormonism you have to earn forgiveness. Why is that?
June was supposed to focus on the attribute of Christ and His virtue. However, the lesson was more about making sure you ‘garnish your thoughts with virtue’, instead of pointing out how or why Jesus is virtuous.
Can wedding bells solve all your problems?
April was a continuation on the attributes of Christ. It was also a lesson of exhortation for members to be without guile. We’re wondering if they consider lying to potential converts as being without guile…
Why is patience an attribute of Jesus and why didn’t the Church describe this in their VT Message?
Why was Jesus sinless? Is it possible for man to live a sinless life?
This month’s lesson was supposed to focus on the attributes of Christ, but all we found is another list of things Mormons must do to be saved.
Is Jesus really the Prince of Peace for Mormons?
Should Mormons always sustain the prophet?
Is Jesus really the bread of life for Mormons?
Is Jesus the comforter for Mormons today? How does he do this?
If no other name is given for salvation outside of Jesus then why are works needed?
Is Jesus really the advocate for Mormons?
Why do Mormons consider themselves as saviors of the world? Isn’t that Jesus’ job?
Why would God want Mormon women to emulate Eve? An LDS apostle told female Mormons she should be their role model. Really?
This month’s message focuses on Jesus being the Good Shepherd. How can he be the Good Shepherd when forgiveness has to be earned and not granted just as salvation?
The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ. Understanding the differences between the Jesus of Mormonism and Christianity.
“Come Join with Us” is the message that Melissa chose to look at since there isn’t any official Visiting Teaching msg this month because of the General Conference. Mr. Uchtdorf gives reasons why people should join Mormonism and also tells members why they should doubt their doubts.
Divine Mission of Jesus Christ; Creator. This is a watered down message of the Mormon Jesus, but Melissa gives the real details of what they believe and why they don’t tell the whole truth.
Being spiritually and temporally self-reliant is a form of rejecting God!
Why it’s important to know the true gospel of Christ!
Teaching and knowing the gospel is the focus for this month.
LDS Newsroom Announcements & First Presidency Messages
Mr. Eyring’s talk included the message that people could experience true peace by knowing the ‘Sacramental Prayers’ offered during priesthood blessings. We’re wondering…what happened to the peace Jesus said He’d give to us?
Thomas Monson told Mormons they should follow in the footsteps of their Mormon ancestors who were pioneers of the faith.
The Church listed six different names and titles for Jesus and not one of them was correct!
The Church’s new policy of not baptizing children of gay couples raised serious questions about their policies leading to a mass exodus.
On July 3, 2015 Boyd K. Packer died due to age related incidents.
On May 31, 2015, Mormon apostle L Tom Perry died in SLC
Just as the Israelites lusted after the magical powers of Simon Magus in the book of Acts, Mormons ascribe to the same ideologies with message of Henry Eyring. Looking for extra-biblical miracles, they ignore the word of God and shun it away.
Why does the Church lie about their beliefs? They’ve reported that they don’t believe men will have their own planets someday…hmmm… This goes against everything they’ve ever taught!
2013 First Presidency and LDS Newsroom Announcements
This month the prophet Thomas Monson declared it’s the responsibility of all church members to “rescue” inactive Mormons and bring them back into full fellowship. What if they don’t want to be rescued and why are the Mormons given just one more thing to do on their endless list of must-dos to be saved?
A look at why the Church uses pictures of false gods for the kids’ learning activity to thank God.
List of all Mormons who serve in the US Congress
May 1st & 6th, 1911
Joseph F. Smith writes letters to the Deseret News & the London Times denying that neither he, nor anyone in the Church had been practicing polygamy since he had been called into office in 1902.
Notable Discourses & Lectures by LDS Leaders
Speeches given by Russell Ballard (2/2016) shortly before his death, and Jeffrey Holland (4/2016) exhibit fear in the declining LDS population. They’re emphasis to Mormons: don’t use the internet to find historical info on the Church.
In a speech given by Richard Bushman at the BYU Campus in Hawaii, members were told they need to anchor their testimonies on Jesus, not Joseph. This stunning comment comes five months after his presentation to a small group of Mormons stating, ‘the historical narrative the LDS Church has been teaching for decades is not true’.
This should give pause to all interested parties of Mormonism!
