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

New Era, ‘Testify of the Restoration,’ April 2017; “I testify that Jesus Christ is God’s Son in the flesh as well as in the Spirit, Himself a God and the Son of a God—the Only Begotten of the Father and the Savior of all mankind.” – Jeffrey Holland [emp. mine]

Mormon Doctrine, p. 409;  “Plurality of Gods … Three separate personages — Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — comprise the Godhead. As each of these persons is a God, it is evident, from this standpoint alone, that a plurality of Gods exists. To us, speaking in the proper finite sense, these three are the only Gods we worship. But in addition there is an infinite number of holy personages, drawn from worlds without number, who have passed on to exaltation and are thus gods.” – Bruce R. McConkie [emp. mine]

Journal of Discourses 3:48; “If I am not to have the privilege of speaking of Saint and sinner when I please, tie up my mouth and let me go to the grave, for my work would be done. It was for this that they killed Joseph and Hyrum, it is for this that they wish to kill me and my brethren; we know their iniquity, and we will tell of it when the Spirit dictates…” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 4, 1855

Journal of Discourses 13:63-64; “It was in the Garden of Eden that the devil, or one of those foul spirits, entered into a certain animal or beast, called a serpent, and came before our first parents and beguiled them, and they suffered themselves to partake of the forbidden fruit. If, then, they were in the earth as early as the Garden of Eden, no doubt, they have been here from that day to this, and that the earth is the place of their habitation. They wander to and fro in the earth seeking whom they may devour! Only think of a hundred devils to every being that now exists on the earth.” – Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, December 19, 1869

Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Scientifically speaking, the 60’s and 70’s were an exciting time for mankind. They orbited the earth, and even landed on the moon. Alas, not everyone was happy about the discoveries, and went so far as to publicize their nay-saying ways.

The 10th LDS Prophet/President, Joseph Fielding Smith, spoke out a number of times on the subject. We can only surmise his dismay stemmed from concern that false prophecies made by his predecessors, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young, would come to light.
