Ensign, “The Beatitudes: Pattern for Coming unto Christ, December 1987, p. 8 “God’s mercy comes from his unlimited and unconditional love for us. Likewise, we should show mercy to others because of our unlimited and unconditional love for them. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, loves us – not because we deserve it, but because we are his brothers and sisters and he has sacrificed for us. Our parents love us – not because we deserve it, but because they have sacrificed for us.” – Robert Wells (more…)

“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…)

Ensign, ‘Admonitions for the Priesthood of God’, January 1973 “As I say, it never ceases to amaze me how gullible some of our Church members are…

If our people want to be safely guided during these troublous times of deceit and false rumors, they must follow their leaders and seek for the guidance of the Spirit of the Lord in order to avoid falling prey to clever manipulators…” — Harold B. Lee (more…)

General Conference, ‘Beware of False Prophets and False Teachers’, October 1999 “…there are false prophets and false teachers who have or at least claim to have membership in the Church. They declare that the Book of Mormon and other canonical works are not ancient records of scripture. They also attempt to redefine the nature of the Godhead…

… False prophets and false teachers are those who arrogantly attempt to fashion new interpretations of the scriptures to demonstrate that these sacred texts should not be read as God’s words to His children but merely as the utterances of uninspired men, limited by their own prejudices and cultural biases. They argue, therefore, that the scriptures require new interpretation and that they are uniquely qualified to offer that interpretation.” — M. Russell Ballard (more…)

 December 7 — Scripture Fulfillment Lost in Mormonism. Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Luke 1:34-35 “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (more…)

An Eternal Quest Freedom of the Mind “While I believe all that God has revealed, I am not quite sure that I understand what he has revealed. The fact that he has promised further revelation is to me a challenge to keep an open mind and to be prepared to follow wherever my search for truth may lead. … Again I emphasize, there is no final goal.” — Hugh B. Brown (more…)

‘Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.’ Matthew 5:14

Ensign, ‘Overcome Even as I Overcame’, May 1987 “To help us become true disciples, the Lord has given us prophets and scriptures to strengthen us…

Feasting upon the fulness of the gospel will help us to overcome. Additionally, if we will keep our covenants, the covenants will keep us spiritually safe. …

However, our collective light does not yet shine brightly enough to be “a standard for the nations” (D&C 115:5).”

The Church would grow much faster now, numerically and spiritually, if it were not for the wickedness of the world…

It would also grow much faster if you and I were better by taking up the Christian cross daily (see Luke 9:23) …

Ours will be a time of great inversion as well as perversion, as some will call good evil and evil good (see Isa. 5:20; 2 Ne. 15:20; D&C 64:16; 2 Ne. 2:5). …

Peace has already been taken from the earth (see D&C 1:35).

Nation will rise against nation (see Matt. 24:7). It will also be a time of hardening as the love of many waxes cold and iniquity abounds (see D&C 45:27).” — Neal Maxwell (more…)

General Conference, ‘Return and Receive’, April 2017 “He [Satan] uses loud voices—voices that seek to drown out the small and still voice of the Holy Spirit that can show us “all things” we should do to return and receive.

These voices belong to those who disregard gospel truth and who use the internet, social and print media, radio, television, and movies to present in an enticing way immorality…

These voices may also include well-intentioned individuals who are blinded by the secular philosophies of men and women and who seek to destroy the faith and divert the eternal focus of those who are simply trying to return to the presence of God…” — M. Russell Ballard (more…)

General Conference, ‘Cleansing The Inner Vessel,’ October 2010 “Priesthood holders carry with them the antidote to remove the terrible images of pornography and to wash away guilt. The priesthood has the power to unlock the influence of our habits, even to unchain from addiction, however tight the grip. It can heal over the scars of past mistakes.” — Boyd K. Packer  (more…)

 Answers to Gospel Questions 4:27 ““Here he [Mormon] declares that it was soon after the Savior’s ascension into heaven that he appeared to the Nephites and Lamanites on this continent. And his ascension was the day of his resurrection after his appearance to Mary at the tomb, and before his appearance to the disciples that same day. “The reason why Mormon discontinued his account at this point is not stated.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1963 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 2:30 “Because the house which the Father had commanded to be built for his reception, although completed, had become polluted, and hence the saying, “My house is the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves,” and he made a scourge of cords, and drove the moneychangers, and dove sellers, and faro gamblers, all out of his house, and overthrew their tables; but that did not purify the house, so that he could not sleep in it, for an holy thing dwelleth not in an unholy Temple.

If Jesus could not lay his head in an unholy, polluted temple, how can the Latter-day Saints expect that the Holy Spirit will take and abide its residence with them, in their tabernacles and temples of clay, unless they keep themselves pure, spotless, and undefiled?” — Brigham Young, Delivered on the Southeast Corner Stone of the Temple at Great Salt Lake City, April 6, 1853.

Journal of Discourses 23:327 “HARDSHIP THE HERITAGE OF THE SAINTS…There was apparently nothing that the Savior could do that was acceptable in the eyes of the world; anything and almost everything he did was imputed to an unholy influence…it seemed necessary for the Savior to descend below all things that he might ascend above all things. So it has been with other men.

When I look at the history of Joseph Smith, I sometimes think that he came as near following the footsteps of the Savior…as anyone possibly could. Joseph Smith was called to lay down his life; he sealed his testimony with his blood, and passed through some serious trials and afflictions.

In section 122 of the Book of Doctrine and Covenants… —the Lord showed him his condition and position. He refers there to the trials and troubles he was called to pass through, and then compares them with what He Himself (the Savior) had to endure*

The Lord showed him in this revelation that these afflictions were necessary. We have been called to pass through trials many times, and I do not think we should complain, because if we had no trials we should hardly feel at home in the other world in the company of the Prophets and Apostles who were sawn asunder, crucified, etc., for the word of God and testimony of Jesus Christ…I look upon the mission of the Latter-day Saints as being as important as that of any people that ever lived in any age of the world…” ─ Wilford Woodruff, Kaysville, Utah, December 10, 1882 (more…)

Church News, June 2012 “Be we reminded that the gathering of Israel is not the ultimate endpoint. It is but the beginning. The true endpoint is eternal life. It is that God’s children, in a covenant relationship with Him either by lineage or by adoption, will be able to dwell with Him and their families forever. That is God’s glory—eternal life for His children!” — Russell M. Nelson (more…)

 A book written by Sheri Dew, Deseret Book CEO, became the subject of an article I found on Truth and Transparency website. As an FYI, Truth & Transparency was formerly known as Mormon WikiLeaks.

We pray their most informative, and well researched article will be read by Mormons looking for info on their prophet. To read the entire article, see False Story Removed from Newest Book on the Life of Mormon President Russell M. Nelson.

Apparently Ms. Dew’s book was written in 2019, with its sole focus on the life of Russell Nelson. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 19:101 “…while the Elders and people of Israel labored diligently to carry out his [Joseph Smith’s] teachings and execute his plans and designs, he stepped behind the vail almost as suddenly and unexpectedly, to the people, as did Jesus when he was crucified. I repeat, it was almost as sudden and unexpected to the vast body of this people as the crucifixion of Jesus was to his disciples, who were looking for him to be placed upon the throne of his father David, to rule and reign over the House of Israel.” — Erastus Snow, Salt Lake City, September 9, 1877 (more…)

 Handbook of the Restoration, 596 “A Warning

To the unchaste who marry there is ahead either a life of distrust, lack of confidence, unhappiness, leading to the divorce court, or a life of promiscuous sexual relationship that ends in misery, disease and shame. Debauchery never gave birth to good of any kind.

Chastity is fundamental to our life and to our civilization. If the race becomes unchaste, it will perish. Immorality has been basic to the destruction of mighty nations in the past. It will bring to dust the mighty nations of the present.” — J. Reuben Clark (more…)

We Originally posted this in 2014, and updated it last year. In light of the latest major event with COVID-19 in 2020, we have a couple of questions…

Why hasn’t the Church denounced this man and his false teaching?

Why didn’t the LDS prophet warn people about this pandemic?!

Deposition of a Disciple, p 41 “A righteous people who trust in God are far more apt to be blessed with the kind of weather and food and brotherhood that makes famine less likely and sharing more likely than are people who have dismissed the Fatherhood of God and who then make an empty plea for the brotherhood of man. Those who live unrighteously will bring upon themselves the very calamities about which they are complaining in advance.” – Apostle Neal A. Maxwell
