Luke 21:8 “And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.”

Liahona, ‘The Book of Mormon Brings Abundance,’ July 2018 “It is not just that the Book of Mormon teaches us truth, though it indeed does that. It is not just that the Book of Mormon bears testimony of Christ, though it indeed does that, too. But there is something more. There is a power in the book which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. You will find the power to stay on the strait and narrow path. The scriptures are called “the words of life” (D&C 84:85), and nowhere is that more true than it is of the Book of Mormon. … Do eternal consequences rest upon our response to this book? Yes, either to our blessing or our condemnation.

“Every Latter-day Saint should make the study of this book a lifetime pursuit. Otherwise he is placing his soul in jeopardy… Let us not remain under condemnation…” – Ezra Taft Benson [emp. mine] (more…)

Journal of Discourses 2:285 “The Latter-day Saints that are now sitting before me, and those who inhabit this Territory, are here in fulfillment of prophecy. We inhabit these mountains because the ancient Prophets have predicted that such an event should take place, and we are fulfilling their predictions in this respect.

We believe in that sacred record called the Book of Mormon. Why? Because the ancient Prophets have predicted that such a book should be revealed in the latter times; and it has come… and we are the very people that are enjoying the fulfillment of those predictions.” – Orson Pratt, Great Salt Lake City, January 7, 1855 (more…)

Prophets and Priesthood in the Old Testament “Adam was earth’s first Christian. He was baptized, confirmed, born of the Spirit, quickened in the inner man, ordained, and received into the holy order of God (see Moses 6:64–68). “The priesthood was first given to Adam; he obtained the First Presidency, and held the keys of it from generation to generation.”” – Robert L. Millet (more…)

Journal of Discourses 12:322; “Has God said anything about temporal riches? Yes. He told this Church, before it was one year old that we should become the richest of all people. His words will be fulfilled. The Lord says we shall not only have the riches of eternity, but we shall have the riches of the earth. God does not care how much wealth His people have, provided they obtain it according to the law he has instituted.” – Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, November 1, 1868 (more…)

Temples of the Ancient World: Ritual and Symbolism, p. 711; “The garment given by God to Adam represents not merely protection and repentance, but authority as well. Of extraordinary brilliance and splendor and possessed of supernatural qualities, Adam’s garment was passed down from Adam to his descendants, who wore it as priestly robes. … It was this garment, passed through the generations from Seth to Noah, that was worn by Noah when he sacrificed on an altar. It was one of the items that Noah saved and carried with him in the ark.” – John A. Tvedtnes, Donald W. Parry, ed. (more…)

The grandson of Heber J. Grant, Truman Madsen (1926-2009) was an LDS scholar, author, BYU philosophy professor, and the poster child of what every Mormon parent would want from their kid.

One of his most celebrated works, Eternal Man, is still heralded by Mormons as a masterpiece, and many LDS leaders quote from him in their talks. You can find his book at Barnes and Noble, and other bookstores as well. (more…)

General Conference, ‘Strange Creeds of Christendom,’ October 1972; “At the time that Joseph Smith had that marvelous vision and saw that glorified Christ, he saw the same Jesus that came out of the tomb. …

There is not time to go into a lot of detail, but their [Christian] catechism says that their god has “no body; he has no parts; he has no passions.” That means that he has no eyes; he cannot see. He has no ears; he cannot hear your prayers. He has no voice; he cannot speak a word to the prophets. Some of them even say “he sits on the top of a topless throne.” How absurd! To me it seems that their description of the god that they believe in is about the best description of nothing that can be written.

…when he [Moses] went to lead the children of Israel into the promised land, he told them … ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.” (Deut. 4:28.)

That is exactly the kind of a god the whole Christian world was worshiping when Joseph Smith had that glorious vision…” – LeGrand Richards
