Ensign, ‘Overcome Even as I Overcame’, May 1987 “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.” — Neal A. Maxwell (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…)

The Articles of Faith, p. 97 “…being the Mediator between God and man.

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

 Today we’re looking at the Church’s décor outside the LDS Admin Building.

While the Church puts a lot of emphasis on what takes place inside the 420 foot structure with all the Church records, we have to wonder why they didn’t pay attention to the finer details. (more…)

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

 Yesterday I received an e-mail from Melissa that made me grateful I was sitting down. She came across a pro-Mormon Facebook page that screams false prophet, reminding us of the inherent dangers of Mormonism.

The FB page had a caption of an Israelite painting blood over a doorpost, followed by Nelson’s blasphemous declaration – (more…)

 Evidences and Reconciliations, p. 127 “Latter-day Saints know through modern revelation, that the Garden of Eden was on the North American continent and that Adam and Eve began their conquest of the earth in the upper part of what is now Missouri…” — John A. Widtsoe (more…)

General Conference, ‘Lord, I believe,’ April 2013 “Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it. So should we.” — Jeffery R. Holland (more…)

Conference Report October 1926, 117 In reference to the modern inventions, then apostle Joseph Fielding Smith, made the following comments – “…I think this is very wonderful; and yet, this great discovery [the radio] did not come through revelation to a member of the Church; it was not sent through one who holds the Priesthood, but it came through one not of the Church but who was inspired of the Lord to give this great blessing to the world.

So with many other things, the automobile and the airplane as means of transportation; the talking machine and all of these great discoveries that have come through scientific research, they have come, most of them, outside of the Church. Yet I maintain that had there been no restoration of the gospel, and no organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there would have been no radio; there would have been no airplane, and there would not have been the wonderul [sic] discoveries in medicine, chemistry, electricity, and the many other things wherein the world has been benefited by such discoveries.

Under such conditions these blessings would have been withheld, for they belong to the Dispensation of the Fulness of Times of which the restoration of the gospel and the organization of the Church constitute the central point…” — Joseph Fielding Smith [emp. added] (more…)

Brigham’s Speech on Slavery, February 5, 1852, LDS Church Historical Dept “Let this Church which is called the kingdom of God on the earth;… [say] we will summons the first presidency, the twelve, the high counsel, the Bishopric, and all the elders of Israel, suppose we summons them to appear here, and here declare that it is right to mingle our seed with the black race of Cain, that they shall come in with us and be partakers with us of all the blessings God had given to us. On that very day and hour we should do so, the priesthood is taken from this Church and kingdom and God leaves us to our fate. The moment we consent to mingle with the seed of Cain the Church must go to destruction, we should receive the curse which has been placed upon the seed of Cain, and never more be numbered with the children of Adam who are heirs to the priesthood until that curse be removed.” – Brigham Young

Patriarchal Order on Plurality of Wives, p. 16 “Are not females generally as corrupt and wicked as males, and therefore deserve to be equally yoked in pairs—wicked men with wicked women ?—No. Females are not generally as wicked as males.

Why ?—Because there is not meted out to them the same privilege and high responsibility. Man being the head of the woman, holds the chair of State and of Church.” — Orson Spencer, January 13, 1853 (more…)

We were reminded of an article we published a few years ago while preparing for a new series of videos, and other articles we’re putting on the site — yay! Here’s the link for the original article, or you can read the updated version below.

Gospel Doctrine, p. 179 “NO NEED TO POINT OUT DEFECTS OF CHURCH LEADERS…I do not think it is my right or prerogative to point out the supposed defects of the Prophet Joseph Smith, or Brigham Young, or any other of the leaders of the Church. Let the Lord God Almighty judge them and speak for or against them as it may seem to him good—but not me; it is not for me, my brethren, to do this. Our enemies may have taken advantage of us, in times gone by, because of unwise things that may have been said. Some of us may now give to the world the same opportunity to speak evil against us, because of that which we say, which should not be spoken at all.—Oct. C. R., 1909, pp. 124-125.” – Joseph F. Smith (more…)

Gospel Topics, ‘Happiness’ “Heavenly Father desires that we find true, lasting happiness. Our happiness is the design of all the blessings He gives us—gospel teachings…and even the opportunity to experience adversity. His plan for our salvation is often called “the great plan of happiness” (Alma 42:8). He sent His Beloved Son to carry out the Atonement so we can be happy in this life and receive a fulness of joy in the eternities.” (more…)
