1 Corinthians 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of God.”

Today we’re doing things a little differently – woo-hoo!

A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a good friend, Melissa Brown, who’s participated in comments on our blog. Her heart was burdened with the news she read about the late Ravi Zacharias and wanted to know if she could say something about it on the blog.

Melissa had two major concerns about the news she read –

1.Christians should be warned about the lifestyle he lied about and hid for numerous years.

2.Mr. Zacharias’ lifestyle was a close reflection of Joseph Smith’s. In light of how the Church welcomed Ravi into the SL Tabernacle, Mormons should also be alerted to the wily ways of these two men.

After prayer and our exchanges, I’ve no doubt her article will prove valuable to those who read what she has to say!

With Love in Christ –—

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1

General Conference, ‘Closing Remarks’, October 2019 “We know the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will bring hope and joy to people who will hear and heed His doctrine. We also know that each home can become a true sanctuary of faith, where peace, love, and the Spirit of the Lord may dwell.

Of course, the crowning jewel of the Restoration is the holy temple. Its sacred ordinances and covenants are pivotal to preparing a people who are ready to welcome the Savior at His Second Coming. Presently we have 166 dedicated temples, and more are coming.” — Russell Nelson [emp. added] (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 124:20-22 “Revelation given to Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Nauvoo, Illinois, January 19, 1841. … And again, verily I say unto you, my servant George Miller is without guile; he may be trusted because of the integrity of his heart; and for the love which he has to my testimony I, the Lord, love him. 21 I therefore say unto you, I seal upon his head the office of a bishopric, like unto my servant Edward Partridge, that he may receive the consecrations of mine house, that he may administer blessings upon the heads of the poor of my people, saith the Lord. Let no man despise my servant George, for he shall honor me. 22 Let my servant George, and my servant Lyman, and my servant John Snider, and others, build a house unto my name, such a one as my servant Joseph shall show unto them, upon the place which he shall show unto them also.” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 3:265-266 “This revelation, which God gave to Joseph, was for the express purpose of providing a channel for the organization of tabernacles, for those spirits to occupy who have been reserved to come forth in the kingdom of God, and that they might not be obliged to take tabernacles out of the kingdom of God. …

Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned… …but the Saints who live their religion will be exalted…” —— Brigham Young, Provo, Utah, July 14, 1855. (more…)

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

Doctrines of Salvation 1:58 “THE FIRST MAN OF ALL MEN.” Many revelations attest the truth that Adam was the first man. The Prophet corrected the genealogy of Christ as given in Luke so that it includes this statement: “Adam who was formed of God, and the first man upon the earth.” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 107:48-52 “Enoch was twenty-five years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam; and he was sixty-five and Adam blessed him 49 And he saw the Lord, and he walked with him, and was before his face continually; and he walked with God three hundred and sixty-five years, making him four hundred and thirty years old when he was translated. 50 Methuselah was one hundred years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam. 51 Lamech was thirty-two years old when he was ordained under the hand of Seth. 52 Noah was ten years old when he was ordained under the hand of Methuselah.” (more…)

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 340-41 “I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, “In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.”” — April 2, 1843

“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” 1 Timothy 4:7

 The LDS Church claims that in 1847 Brigham Young declared, ‘This is the place’, meaning the Church had found its new forever home in the western end of the Rockies known as the ‘Wasatch Front’.

From the onset of their arrival, the truth about their polygamous ways were preached from the pulpit. Along with the false prophecy of the ‘New and Everlasting Covenant’, came other false prophecies.

Today we’re looking at the anniversary of Brigham’s infamous explanation, and his addition to Joe Smith’s false prophecy of planets, stars, and the moon’s inhabitants. (more…)

Lectures on Faith, 62 “The whole visible creation, as it now exists, is the effect of faith. It was faith by which it was framed, and it is by the power of faith that it continues in its organized form, and by which the planets move round their orbits and sparkle forth their glory.” — Joseph Smith (more…)

Lectures on Faith, p. 93 “Shem was Melchizedek… From this definite account of driving the “nations apart, when the ancient hills did bow,” all reflecting minds may judge that man was scattered over the whole face of the earth. And with the superior knowledge of men like Noah, Shem (who was Melchizedek) and Abraham, the father of the faithful, three cotemporaries, holding the keys of the highest order of the priesthood: connecting the creation, and fall; memorising the righteousness of Enoch; and glorying in the construction of the ark for the salvation of a world; still retaining the model and pattern of that ark, than which a great, ah, we might say, half so great a vessel has never been built since; for another ark, be it remembered, with such a ponderous living freight will never be prepared as a vessel of mercy by command of Jehovah. Times and Seasons, Vol. 5, p. 746. Nauvoo, Illinois, December 15, 1844. Elder John Taylor, Editor.)” (more…)

2 Nephi 9:41 “O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One. Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.” (more…)

The Joseph Smith Revelations “#22. The text in the journal says that Smith also saw Michael in this vision. Prior to this time, it was taught that Michael was another name for Adam. Oliver Cowdery wrote in a letter in January 1834, “I have been in formed from a proper source that the Angel Michael is no less than our father Adam” (Cowdery to John Whitmer, 1 Jan. 1834, Oliver Cowdery Letterbook, 15, Henry E. Huntington Library, San Marino, California).” — by H. Michael Marquardt (more…)

 Today we’re looking at the confusion Joe Smith caused when he attempted to rewrite God’s perfect, holy word. As you’ll see in the Church’s history below, chaos ruled. If he had embraced truth, he would’ve rejoiced over Isaiah 40:8

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: But the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Instead, Mr. Smith claimed God revealed to him, and Sidney Rigdon in 1832 they needed to focus on rewriting the Bible.

Ensign, ‘Joseph Smith, the Mighty Prophet of the Restoration,’ May 1976, p. 94 “As to this man, Joseph Smith, let us say – Here is a man who was chosen before he was born, who was numbered with the noble and great in the councils of eternity before the foundations of this world were laid. “Along with Adam and Enoch and Noah and Abraham, he sat in council with the Gods when the plans were made to create an earth whereon the hosts of our Father’s children might dwell. “Under the direction of the Holy One and of Michael, who became the first man, he participated in the creative enterprises of the Father.” — Bruce R. McConkie (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation 3:239 “HEBER C. KIMBALL TELLS OF DEATH OF ZELPH. Elder Heber C. Kimball who was present recorded the following in his journal: “While on our way we felt anxious to know who the person was who had been killed by that arrow. It was made known to Joseph that he had been an officer who fell in battle, in the last destruction among the Lamanites, and his name was Zelph. This caused us to rejoice much, to think that God was so mindful of us as to show these things to his servant. Brother Joseph had inquired of the Lord, and it was made known in a vision.”” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)
