General Conference, ‘Turn to the Lord’, October 2017 “A fundamental belief of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that God has a plan for each one of His children. God created this earth so you could come here, experience the trials of life, and prove that you’re worthy of spending eternity with God in heaven.” — W. Christopher Waddell (more…)

Essential Truths—Our Need to Act “Just imagine how blessed we are to know that God is a being with a body of flesh and bones as tangible as ours, that we can worship a God who is real, whom we can understand, and who has shown and revealed Himself and His Son to His prophets—both prophets of old and prophets in these latter days. He is a God who hears and answers our prayers; a God who watches us from heaven above and is constantly concerned about our spiritual and temporal well-being; a God who gives us agency to decide for ourselves to follow Him and obey His commandments without coercion; a God who gives us blessings and allows us to face trials so we can grow and become like Him.” — Adilson de Paula Parrella (more…)

General Conference, ‘The Book of Mormon: What Would Your Life Be Like without It?,’ October 2017 “I testify that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God. It contains the answers to life’s most compelling questions. It teaches the doctrine of Christ. It expands and clarifies many of the “plain and precious” truths that were lost through centuries of time and numerous translations of the Bible.

The Book of Mormon provides the fullest and most authoritative understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ to be found anywhere. …

The Book of Mormon affirms: The individual identity of Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ…” — Russell M. Nelson (more…)

General Conference, ‘ Apart, but Still One,’ October 2017 “In the Church, in spite of our differences, the Lord expects us to be one! He said in the Doctrine and Covenants, “Be one; and if ye are not one ye are not mine.” As we all enter a meetinghouse to worship as a group, we should leave behind our differences, including race, social status, political preferences, and academic and professional achievements, and instead concentrate on our common spiritual objectives.” –– Joni L. Koch (more…)

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I’ve prayed the verse listed above I don’t know how many times for the Mormon people. One thing is certain, I’ll keep praying it until the Lord comes, or calls me home. I so want for them to know Jesus!

The first thing they must do however, is to disencumber themselves from the lies like those we’re looking at today. Mr. Anderson’s talk at the General Conference is a classic example of how their leaders are like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

If I had to give this conference an overall title, I’d name it ‘The Confounding Contradictions’. The Mormon Church has always contradicted itself, but there are times when we see them doing so as if it’s second nature for them.

The one thing each speaker seemed to have in common was an overall sense of someone just going through the motions without thinking. Recently, they’ve seen a good sized portion of their leadership die due to age, and those that remain don’t seem to carry the same enthusiasm of their predecessors. Gone are the unyielding personalities of McConkie and Talmage, the new game in town reminds me of the Stepford Wives.

They’re merely parroting the lessons they’ve been taught before they collapse into bed at the end of each day.

Personally, I’ve always referred to it as the ‘Eyeore Syndrome’. They’ll do what they need to because that’s what they’re told, but it’s not without heaving a huge sigh of, ‘woe-is-me’.

I don’t know about you the reader, but I can’t think of Jesus without being excited for Who He is, what He’s done, and how fortunate I am that He saved me! I can point to the time when my old self began to change because of His supernatural work inside of me.

My dear Mormon people have known no such thing in their lives. They simply go from one day to the next, without any marker of when Jesus took up residence inside of them. Pray they’ll know the true joy of worshiping Him! Please, pray that they’ll know Isaiah 1:18!

2 Thessalonians 2:9  ‘Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders’.

Here we are another year older, and hopefully walking closer to the Lord than ever before! One thing is certain, the directives of the Church are still spinning their wheels, and have gone nowhere fast in their walk with Jesus. Their main objective was to elevate Joseph Smith, while completely ignoring God’s warning to us in His precious word.

Some of the talks given this year seem to be reruns of the past, and those on the receiving end have once again gained nothing.

We’re highlighting 3-4 talk summaries of the Mormon General Authorities in each of our posts this week for the express purpose of bringing attention to the need of prayer from the body of Christ.

We feel that while these talks are still fresh in the minds of the Mormon people, we as Christians can use them as witnessing tools to share with the Mormons we know and love. We’ve pulled a few of the most important things from each talk. Here we go!
