Articles of Faith 1:2 “We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.”

2 Nephi 5:21, 23 And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. 23 And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done.” [emp. added] (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 130:3 “Items of instruction given by Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Ramus, Illinois, April 2, 1843.” …

“John 14:23—The appearing of the Father and the Son, in that verse, is a personal appearance; and the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man’s heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.” (more…)

Moses 3:9 “And out of the ground made I, the Lord God, to grow every tree, naturally, that is pleasant to the sight of man; and man could behold it. And it became also a living soul. For it was spiritual in the day that I created it; for it remaineth in the sphere in which I, God, created it, yea, even all things which I prepared for the use of man; and man saw that it was good for food. And I, the Lord God, planted the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” [emp. added] (more…)

Ensign, ‘Good Habits Develop Good Character’, November 1974, 20 “We are not born into this world with fixed habits. Neither do we inherit a noble character. … Confucius said that the nature of men is always the same. It is their habits that separate them. Good habits are not acquired simply by making good resolves, though the thought must precede the action. Good habits are developed in the workshop of our daily lives. It is not in the great moments of test and trial that character is built. That is only when it is displayed. The habits that direct our lives and form our character are fashioned in the often uneventful, commonplace routine of life. They are acquired by practice.” — Delbert L. Stapley (more…)

Today we’re looking at timing, and how Joseph Smith lied about events in the Garden of Eden.

Moses 2:27-28 “And I, God, created man in mine own image, in the image of mine Only Begotten created I him; male and female created I them. 28 And I, God, blessed them, and said unto them: Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (more…)

Alma 41:8 “Now, the decrees of God are unalterable; therefore, the way is prepared that whosoever will may walk therein and be saved.” [emp. added]

Moroni 10:32–33 “Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God. 33 And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot.” [emp. added]

Study Manual The Plan of Salvation, What is My Purpose in Life “Our Heavenly Father gave Adam and Eve agency, or freedom to choose. He commanded them not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Obeying this commandment meant they could remain in the garden, but they could not progress by learning from experiences and challenges. Satan tempted Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, and they chose to do so. This was part of God’s plan. …

Many aspects of life bring happiness, and some bring sorrow. These experiences help you learn to distinguish between good and evil and to make correct choices.

God influences you to do good and to follow Him, while Satan tempts you to ignore God and commit sin. (Sin is knowingly choosing to do wrong or not to do right.) When you choose to follow God and keep His commandments, you grow in wisdom and strength of character…” [Retrieved Oct. 1, 2020] [emp. added] (more…)

A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, p. 290Sins are remitted not in the waters of baptism, as we say in speaking figuratively, but when we receive the Holy Ghost. It is the Holy Spirit of God that erases carnality and brings us into a state of righteousness. We become clean when we actually receive the fellowship and companionship of the Holy Ghost. It is then that sin and dross and evil are burned out of our souls as though by fire.” — Bruce R. McConkie [emp. added] (more…)

Today we’re looking at a couple of fundamental LDS doctrines. We’re praying members would look at these and ask themselves why Joseph Smith would teach such contradictory doctrine.

We can guarantee this isn’t how the God of the Bible operates!

If you’re a Christian, please, pray for those in the LDS Church, and in a loving manner, share the truth today!

With Love in Christ;

The Articles of Faith, p. 178 “There is an entire absence of scriptural sanction for giving the sacrament to any who are not members in full fellowship in the Church of Christ. Christ administered the ordinance on the eastern continent to His apostles only; and we have record of their giving it to those only who had assumed the name of Christ. Amongst His western fold, Christ established the law that only the actual members of His Church should partake.

In promising to ordain one among them with power to officiate in the sacrament, the Savior specified that the one so chosen should give it unto the people of His Church, unto all those who believed and were baptized in His name.” Only those indeed who had been so baptized were called the Church of Christ. Continuing His instructions to the disciples concerning the sacrament, the Savior said: “This shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name.” — James Talmage (more…)

Genesis 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Mormon Doctrine, p. 122 “Creator … See CHRIST, CREATION, FATHER IN HEAVEN, WORD OF GOD. Both the Father and the Son bear the title, Creator… The creative work itself is actually done by the Son, as he is directed by and uses the power of the Father. Hence the scriptures speak of Christ as the Creator of this world and of worlds without number. (Moses 7:29; John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:1-3; D. & C. 38:1-4; 76:22-24.) In his creation of this earth he was assisted by Michael and other noble and great spirits…” — Bruce R. McConkie, 1966 (more…)

Acts 17:11 “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

 Today we’re asking the Church 2 questions —

1.Why do they condemn baptizing children when they practice the very same thing?

Moroni 8:14-16 “Behold I say unto you, that he that supposeth that little children need baptism is in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity … Wo be unto them that shall pervert the ways of the Lord after this manner, for they shall perish except they repent. Wo unto such, for they are in danger of death, hell, and an endless torment.” (more…)

LDS Contradictions: BoM Says Law Doesn’t Save; Mormonism Says It Does

Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”.

 Today we’re looking at simple comparisons of works, v. grace.

Our objective in doing so is for Christians to have the tools/resources to share the truth with a Mormon they might know.

If you’re LDS, we humbly ask you look over the evidence given, and ask yourself if God would really send so many conflicting messages to you. We promise beloved, this isn’t how the God of the Bible operates!

Please, pray for Mormons to know the difference, and for Jesus to intervene!

With Love in Christ;

LDS Contradictions: The Sin of Adam and Eve 

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Genesis 3:23-24 “Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

1 Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”.

One of the biggest tragedies of Mormonism can be found in their doctrines about the Fall of mankind. The word ambiguity doesn’t come close to describing how contradictory their beliefs are on this topic. We pray that all Christians will take the time to share truth with a Mormon, and tell them of the love you have for Jesus! (more…)

“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.

 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] (more…)

 If this wasn’t such an important part of LDS theology, it’d hardly be worth the time to point out the discrepancy we found here. However, Mormonism’s foundation relies on the belief God needed Satan’s intervention to help carry out His plan…

Devil is Cause of Death

Journal of Discourses 1:281 “…He has permitted the destroyer to visit them, who has usurped a certain dominion and authority, carrying desolation and ruin on every hand; the perfections of the original organizations have ceased.” — Orson Pratt, Great Salt Lake, July 25, 1852 (more…)

Ether 3:15; “And never have I showed myself unto man whom I have created, for never has man believed in me as thou hast.” — BC c. 2200 [emp. added]

D&C 107:53-55; “Three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, and Methuselah, who were all high priests, with the residue of his posterity who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there bestowed upon them his last blessing. 54 And the Lord appeared unto them, and they rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the prince, the archangel. 55 And the Lord administered comfort unto Adam, and said unto him: I have set thee to be at the head; a multitude of nations shall come of thee, and thou art a prince over them forever.” — [emp. added]
