One of the most egregious lies from Joseph Smith has to be his false claim that Jesus’ atonement for man’s sin took place in the Garden of Gethsemane.

D&C 19:18 “Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink—”

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.”

Just as a photographer sets a client in the perfect pose for a picture, Mormons are conditioned to think in certain ways to reflect an image of whom they place their trust in for eternal salvation. By and large, that means their prophets. The prophet’s preeminent status is manifested in testimonies of devotion to Joe Smith, and the current living prophet.

You’d think the Bible would make the Saints’ list of what’s most important, considering they call themselves a Christian organization, but such is not the case. The most glaring problem aside from denouncing the Bible, is their ambiguity. This, we believe, is used as a tactic to confuse members, and investigators alike.  (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:213-214 “Can we devise any other means and plan of salvation? We cannot. Will we do away with the Bible? We will not; though the Christian world are actually coming to the point that they will dismiss the Bible from their schools; and by and by they will dismiss it from their pulpits…

They cannot abide the doctrine contained in the Old and New Testament, “and,” say they, “we must alter and change it; it does not suit our condition. It was not written for us; it was written for people in days of old …

We cannot find books of that edition; some that have been altered and changed are plentiful. I mean King James’ translation, and that is good enough for me; it will answer my purpose. But how is it with the Christian world? Will it answer theirs? If it will, why do they not abide by it? … They would do so if they were honest and their belief was sincere. And it will have to be so with them if ever they gain admittance into the kingdom of God, for in the Bible are the words of life and salvation.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 17, 1870 (more…)

1 John 2:19 “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.”

Today’s post stems from two things.

1.I found this speech in the Journal of Discourses Index under the title ‘Mormon Doctrine Conforms to the Bible’. I found it to be a good example of how the Church confuses people by using God’s word to fool them.

2.A post on our Facebook page from a Mormon asked me why I can’t leave the Church alone. George Cannon’s speech is a great example of why.

FYI:  My apologies for its length. Quickly scan and save the parts you find most useful. We feel this is of such vital import, it mustn’t be overlooked, and Christians should take heed to the dangerous way this church operates. The tactics employed by Mr. Cannon are in full use today. Proof is found in the missionary knocking on your door.

This speech in its entirety could easily be considered a book because of how lengthy it is. I’ve trimmed it considerably by pulling some of statements therein. To read it in full, see link below.

Journal of Discourses 22:260-269 “President Cannon having read the whole of the 12th Chapter of the Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, said: It is a blessed thing for us who live in this day and age to have records in our midst which have come down from olden times…as containing principles of life and of salvation…In this respect the chapter which I have read from this book is of priceless worth…

Then, why pray tell, has the Church rejected God’s word? Articles of Faith #8. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 14:257 – 258; “These Greek and Hebrew manuscripts being transmitted from generation to generation, and transcribed and altered more or less, have fallen at length into the hands of the people of latter times in a state wherein they very much contradict each other. … I am astonished when I look at this Bible, to find it so correct; I am astonished, and it has been a mystery to me that it can be so correct with such an abundance of contradictions in the original manuscripts. As a general thing the meaning has not been altered much, but it has been altered sufficiently to produce all the confusion at present existing throughout Christendom.” – Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, December 10, 1871

‘The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.’ Isaiah 40:8

Today we’re looking at the text found in the online LDS Bible Dictionary, which you can read via the link provided.

The reason for our study today stems from my belated discovery of the changes the LDS Church made to their online Bible Dictionary. I hadn’t realized they changed it again until I read an e-mail from good friends, Lee and Kathy Baker, as they were using it to give direction for a Christian wanting info.

We’ve taken pertinent things they said in their page and have inserted comments where/when necessary. Our response is in red font.

What can you do in 30 minutes?

How much can you read?
How much TV can you watch?
How many projects can you start and finish?
How many calls can you return?

Suppose you had 30 minutes.
Could you tell the story of the Bible in a half-hour?
