“Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.” — C.S. Lewis

 The Gospel Kingdom, pp. 274-275 “You will see the day that Zion will be far ahead of the outside world in everything pertaining to learning of every kind as we are today in regard to religious matters.” —  John Taylor

 Conference Report, April 1980, p.100 “If we, as a people, keep the commandments of God; if we take the side of the Church on all issues, both religious and political; if we take the Holy Spirit for our guide; if we give heed to the words of the apostles and prophets who minister among us——then, from an eternal standpoint, all things will work together for our good.” — Bruce R. McConkie (more…)

 Conference Report April 1980 p. 94 “Seduction is the greatest weapon of the devil. It is alluring; it falsely appears to be advantageous and desirable. He would have us think that bitter is sweet, that black is white, that sin is acceptable, that virtue is obsolete, archaic, and prudish.” — Mark E. Petersen

Ephesians 4:14 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.

Mr. Petersen’s talk was straight from the scary files and that’s no joke. While he busied himself with warnings of how sneaky the devil can be he was the one people should’ve been concerned about.

His doomsday cometh warning would’ve been put to better use for himself and everyone in LDS leadership.

Please, pray for those who listen to messages like this. In a loving manner ask the Mormon you know what they think about the contradictions! In addition to the contradictory verses from their canon listed below he also referenced 2 Nephi 2:11 which states there has to be an opposition in all things —

“For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.”

Oh beloved, the God of the Bible doesn’t need anything much less evil. He’s a Sovereign God! Dr. Ron Carlson used to point out this type of teaching is known as dualism which in essence is a yin-yang type of theology.

Moses 5:10-11 “And in that day Adam blessed God and was filled, and began to prophesy concerning all the families of the earth, saying: Blessed be the name of God, for because of my transgression my eyes are opened, and in this life I shall have joy, and again in the flesh I shall see God. 11 And Eve, his wife, heard all these things and was glad, saying: Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed, and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption, and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient.”

2 Nephi 15:20 “Wo 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!”

“Never nourish an experience which has not God as its Source, and faith in God as its result. If you do, your experience is anti-Christian, no matter what visions you may have had. Is Jesus Christ Lord of your experiences, or do you try to lord it over Him?” — Oswald Chambers

 Conference Report, October 1989, p.17 “Things of the Spirit need not–indeed, should not–require our uninterrupted time and attention. Ordinary work-a-day things occupy most of our attention. And that is as it should be. We are mortal beings living in this physical world. Spiritual things are like leavening. By measure they may be very small, but by influence they affect all that we do.” — Boyd K. Packer (more…)

 Conference Report, October 2011, p. 83 “We are asked to stand as a witness of Him “at all times and in all things, and in all places” (Mosiah 18:9). This means that we must be willing to let others know whom we follow and to whose Church we belong: the Church of Jesus Christ. We certainly want to do this in a spirit of love and testimony. We want to follow the Savior by simply and clearly, yet humbly, declaring that we are members of His Church. We follow Him by being Latter-day Saints–latter-day disciples.” — M. Russell Ballard (more…)

 Conference Report October 1997, p. 88 “With one voice and one accord, we bear witness that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to satisfy ultimate spiritual hunger and slake definitive spiritual thirst. Only He who was so mortally wounded knows how to heal our modern wounds. Only One who was with God, and was God, can answer the deepest and most urgent questions of our soul. Only His almighty arms could have thrown open the prison gates of death that otherwise would have held us in bondage forever. Only on His triumphant shoulders can we ride to celestial glory–if we will but choose through our faithfulness to do so.” — Jeffrey R. Holland

 General Conference, October 1926, p. 97 “Columbus built better than he knew. Wycliff, Luther, the reformers, explorers and conquerors all, as well as the founders of this nation, did likewise. And even the Latter-day Saints, with all their knowledge of divine plans and purposes, revealed from Heaven to enable them to execute another phase of God’s ““marvelous work and wonder,”” have no adequate conception of its future greatness and glory.” — Orson F. Whitney (more…)

 Conference Report, ‘Apostasy and Restoration’, April 1995, p. 115 “The purpose of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is to help all of the children of God understand their potential and achieve their highest destiny. The church exists to provide the sons and daughters of God with the means of entrances into and exaltation in the celestial kingdom.

This is a family-centered church in doctrine and practices. Our understanding of the nature and purpose of God the Eternal father explains our destiny and our relationship in his eternal family.

Our theology begins with heavenly parents. Our highest aspiration is to be like them.

Under the merciful plan of the father, all of this is possible through the atonement of the Only Begotten of the Father, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

As earthly parents we participate in the gospel plan by providing mortal bodies for the spirit children of God. The fulness of eternal salvation is a family matter.” — Dallin H. Oaks (more…)
