 Journal of Discourses 6:125 “Jesus said to his disciples, “Ye are the salt of the earth; and if the salt loses its saving principle, it is then good for nothing but to be cast out.” Instead of reading it just as it is, almost all of you read it just as it is not. Jesus meant to say, “If you have lost the saving principles, you Twelve Apostles, and you that believe in my servants the Twelve, you shall be like unto the salt that has lost its saving principles: it is henceforth good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men.” Judas lost that saving principle, and they took him and killed him. It is said in the Bible that his bowels gushed out; but they actually kicked him until his bowels came out.” – Heber C. Kimball, Salt Lake City, December 13, 1857

 Melissa e-mailed me the meme of a Mormon quote that’s quite popular on FB. She mentioned the quote had no reference on where to find the original source so I went looking around and found this in a speech given by one of their apostles, Robert D. Hales.

Our question is this –

If you’re a true prophet of God wouldn’t you know your salvation is dependent upon the works of Jesus and not yourself?

Really now, if their commander in chief doesn’t have faith in what he’s doing, how are the followers supposed to have unquestioning faith?

Doctrines of Salvation 1:236 “SAINTS ARE THE BEST PEOPLE. We are, notwithstanding our weaknesses, the best people in the world. I do not say that boastingly, for I believe that this truth is evident to all who are willing to observe for themselves. We are morally clean, in every way equal, and in many ways superior to any other people. The reason is that we have received the truth, the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

Decisions for Successful Living, pp. 164-165; “The privilege of obtaining a mortal body on this earth is seemingly so priceless that those in the spirit world, even though unfaithful or not valiant, were undoubtedly permitted to take mortal bodies although under penalty of racial or physical or nationalistic limitations.” – Harold B. Lee, 1973

Journal of Discourses 14:149 “…much as he [Joseph Smith] is scorned and despised, he had hundreds and thousands who would have gone to the death with him when he went to death, but Jesus found not a man. Joseph Smith, though he spent only fourteen years in presiding over this people, organizing the Church, proclaiming the Gospel and receiving revelations, yet had hundreds and thousands of men and women who were ready to go to the death with him.” — Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, June 25, 1871 (more…)

Ensign, ‘The Living Christ,’ May 1977, 26

Bernard Brockbank (1909 – 2000) served in several capacities in the Church, namely that of Missions President in the British Isles in the early 1960’s. In the ‘70’s he served as one of the seven assistants to the twelve to live outside the U.S. He was also in charge of the Mormon Pavilion at the New York’s World Fair from 1964-1965 at which time the Church saw a huge increase of members because of his work.

Today we’re looking at an article he wrote 40 years ago. There’s one main purpose in looking at this –

It shows how the Church has used God’s word to deceive. They use the Bible, which they’ve condemned, to lure people in, and present themselves as God’s true messengers.

People like my mother have been tricked by their conniving ways for almost two hundred years now. The very first thing he said should serve as a warning to everyone who concerns themselves with the cause of Christ. They’re singing the same tune even now in the 21st Century… (more…)

 We came upon Mr. Hyde’s remarks about Moroni while looking for references on another subject, and had to share this one. Sigh… We’ll be sure to add this to our next installment of ‘Worst of the Worst Quotes’.

Journal of Discourses 6:368 “…it may not be amiss to ask here, by whose power victory so often perched on our banner? It was by the agency of that same angel of God that appeared unto Joseph Smith, and revealed to him the history of the early inhabitants of this country, whose mounds, bones, and remains of towns, cities, and fortifications speak from the dust in the ears of the living with the voice of undeniable truth.

Wilford Woodruff

 Waiting for World’s End: The Diaries of Wilford Woodruff, edited by Susan Staker, Signature Books, 1993, p. 305 “Again Presdet Young said Joseph the Prophet told me that the garden of Eden was in Jackson Co Missouri, & when Adam was driven out of the garden of Eden He went about 40 miles to the Place which we Named Adam Ondi Ahman, & there built an Altar of Stone & offered Sacrifize. That Altar remains to this day. I saw it as Adam left it as did many others, & through all the revolutions of the world that Altar had not been disturbed. Joseph also said that when the City of Enoch fled & was translated it was whare the gulf of Mexico now is. It left that gulf a body of water.” [sic] – Wilford Woodruff

Joseph Smith and the Messiah: Prophetically Linked “Prophets Aid in Redemption … These three prophets, Joseph of Egypt, Moses, and Joseph of the latter days, are linked to the Savior by their work in helping to redeem His children … Joseph of Egypt helped bring…salvation to his family who fled the famine in Canaan…Moses helped bring…salvation to the children of Israel by leading them out of bondage in Egypt…Likewise, the latter–day Joseph “in the Spirit of power” brought Israel “out of darkness into light . . . and out of captivity unto freedom…” — RoseAnn Brown, 2002 (more…)

 “Our Consuming Mission,” Address to CES Religious Educators, 5 February 1999 “[T]he Second Coming has been in process at least since 1820, beginning on a lovely spring morning in a sacred grove in Palmyra, New York. We have been in one phase or another, then, of the Second Coming for at least 179 years, with sacred appearances of the Savior all along that calendar, some of them recorded but most of them not.” — Jeffrey R.

Millennial Star, No. 17, Vol. 56, 23 Apr. 1894, 260 “If any of us are imperfect, it is our duty to pray for the gift that will make us perfect. Have I imperfections? I am full of them. What is my duty? To pray to God to give me the gifts that will correct these imperfections. …

He wants His Saints to be perfected in the truth. For this purpose He gives these gifts, and bestows them upon those who seek after them, in order that they may be a perfect people upon the face of the earth, notwithstanding their many weaknesses, because God has promised to give the gifts that are necessary for their perfection.” — George Cannon (more…)

The Kingdom of God, Pt. 1, No. 2, p. 4 “The Godhead consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father is a material being… The substance of his person occupies space the same as other matter. It has solidity, length, breadth, and thickness, like all other matter. The elementary materials of his body are not susceptible of occupying, at the same time, the same identical space with other matter. The substance of his person, like other matter, cannot be in two places at the same instant. It also requires time for him to transport himself from place to place. It matters not how great the velocity of his movements, time is an essential ingredient to all motion, whether rapid or slow.” – Orson Pratt, 1848 (more…)

 Conference Report, April 1943, p. 39 “These are trying days, in which Satan rages, at home and abroad, hard days, evil and ugly days. We stand helpless as it seems before them. We need help. We need strength. We need guidance. Perhaps if we would do our work in behalf of those of the unseen world who hunger and pray for the work we can do for them, the unseen world would in return give us help in this day of our urgent need. There are more in the other world than there are here. There is more power and strength there than we have upon this earth. We have but a trifle, and that trifle is taken from the immeasurable power of God.” — John A. Widtsoe

Journal of Discourses 26:302 “…the Apostle Paul makes this declaration: “For to this end Christ both died and rose, and revived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”

So it is with the Prophet Joseph Smith. He has gone before with the keys of this dispensation, after having lived and conferred them upon the authorities of the Church, even all that was necessary until he shall come again to build up this kingdom preparatory to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He with others are helping to carry out the great work of the redemption of the dead. And this part of the work we are called upon to perform in the temples. To be baptized for them, to be confirmed for them, and to perform all those holy ordinances for your righteous dead, for your worthy ancestry, which you have done or shall do for yourselves, makes you to become saviors upon Mount Zion.” — Franklin D. Richards, Provo, August 30, 1885 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 7:286 “It is written of the Savior that he descended below all things. If he did, he descended in capacity. I will merely tell you what I believe on this point. I believe that there never was a child born on this earth with any less capacity than dwelt in the child that was born in a manger of his mother Mary.

I believe, according to the natural ability which he received from his mother and from his supposed father Joseph, that there never was a child that descended lower in capacity, or that knew less.” — Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, October 9, 1859 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 5:71 “The sun, moon, and stars are the representatives of the final homes of the departed dead, if not their real homes. … Here are homes for all grades of spirits, from the faithful martyr to Christ’s kingdom and Gospel, whose glory is represented by the sun in the firmament, to the wicked tare, who will be sent away into outer darkness, upon some planet destined to roll in endless night.” — Orson Hyde, Great Salt Lake City, March 8, 1857 (more…)

The Best of Lowell L. Bennion, Selected Writings 1928-1988: p. 79; “Christ was as humane and man-centered as any humanist in his concern for persons, but he also loved God and shared with him his love for man. And so my loyalty to persons includes man, every man, I hope, but also Deity—the Father and the Son. They too are persons. I don’t know that they need my direct adoration and affection, but it is my simple faith that they suffer when men suffer and rejoice when men have cause to rejoice. So in a modest way, but with all my heart, I would diminish their suffering and enhance their joy.”

“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you,  he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Romans 8:11

Today we’re looking at an excerpt in Wilford Woodruff’s Journal. The 4th president/prophet of the Church was a prolific author, and note keeper. His journals comprise events of the Church, and his private life over the course of almost six decades (1833 – 1898).

The reason we’re looking into the excerpt below is because of the numerous times it’s been used in church publications, LDS Seminary manuals, and publications of the LDS conferences. We found it in no less than four books written about Mormonism!

As we look at this today I want to be sure and reiterate the purpose of why we do this. We aren’t here to bash the Mormon people. We do this to inform the unknowing of the dangers Mormonism presents to those seeking a relationship with God. While reading over this my heart was sickened at the lies, and outright blasphemous theology these men propagated to the Mormon people. Mr. Woodruff’s meticulous notes of Brigham Young’s talk is a classic example of why they can’t be trusted.

Note: spelling is in original.

Journal of Wilford Woodruff 4:246-427Who will resurrect Josephs Body? It will be Peter, James, John, Moroni, or some one who has or will receive the keys of the resurrection. It will probably be one of those who hold the keys of this dispensation & has delivered them to Joseph and you will see Jesus and he will eat peaches & Apples with you. …
