Archive for the ‘General Conference’ Category

Temple Symbols 29The other day we looked at Brigham Young’s last words, and it got me to thinking…scary I know!

What would be the lasting impression people would have of you after you’re gone? With General Conference wrapping up as I type this, I also wondered what some of the LDS prophets said to members at their last General Conference talks.

Holy SpiritGeneral Conference, ‘Ye Must Be Born Again,’ April 2007; “The Holy Spirit of Promise is the ratifying power of the Holy Ghost. When sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise, an ordinance, vow, or covenant is binding on earth and in heaven. (See D&C 132:7.)

Receiving this “stamp of approval” from the Holy Ghost is the result of faithfulness, integrity, and steadfastness in honoring gospel covenants “in [the] process of time” (Moses 7:21).

However, this sealing can be forfeited through unrighteousness and transgression. Purifying and sealing by the Holy Spirit of Promise constitute the culminating steps in the process of being born again.” – David A. Bednar

The Saturday morning General Conference didn’t provide any new insight into Mormonism for those hoping to hear something they hadn’t heard before. However, it did give a false sense of worldly hope to those who believe the Church needs to loosen its grip on male dominance.

A Response to Melissa’s Article

This morning I woke up to see that Melissa’s article has ruffled a few feathers.  The site that took issue with her article is Mormon Apologetics Research Studies. You can read their review here:

http://mormonapologeticstudies.org/2012/10/07/a-message-some-christians-wouldnt-hear-at-general-conference/

Now one of the authors for that site is a gentleman by the name of Timothy Berman who by the way has visited this site a few times and well, he got banned from posting because of his comments.

When you read the responses you’ll see why Melissa wrote the article.  Melissa’s article is here:

For the past five years I’ve prayed for the salvation of those who are trapped in the Mormon religion. I’ve thought about what it would be like for the prophet to get up and deliver a message like the one below. To call all the church members to repentance, and to say that the church is going to abandon all its past sins, arrogance, and beliefs for Jesus and from here on after the members are to put their complete trust in Him alone.

General Conference April 2012

No Ordinary Blessing

Every faithful Mormon waits with bated breath to hear what message the men who they view as prophets, seers, and revelators of God, might have for them that day. I can’t tell you what a thrill they get to hear these men speak, as they hang on every word spoken.

General Conference October 2011, Part 2

Matthew 24:36; “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Twice a year the Mormon Church holds their conferences as a time for members to hear the words spoken by the General Authorities and be inspired for another six months.

Many of the conferences are filled with the same mundane message that seems as if they’ve just been recycled with a few things changed to fit in with the times.  This time around wasn’t much different from that scenario with the exception of a couple things that stood out for me.
