Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

As we approach Christmas Day, we believe it’s important for this ministry to loudly proclaim the whole reason for the season, as the saying goes! That said, over the next few days we’re looking at the basics of both Christianity, and Mormonism. Our topic:

Who is Jesus? (more…)

Liahona, ‘Making Your Life a Soul-Stirring Journey of Personal Growth,’ December 2018 “It takes a special kind of faith to “believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom,” and then to be ready to accept them, whatever they are. … This isn’t about knowing the names of the twelve tribes of Israel or diagramming the allegory of the olives trees, as useful as such exercises may be. This kind of learning is about changing ourselves, about being different (better) because we know more of what God knows. … …as we learn His will, as we gather light and truth and make it part of us every day, that light will grow in us, “brighter and brighter until the perfect day” (D&C 50:24; emphasis added) when we can be with Him because we will be like Him.” — Jeffrey R.

It seems we’ve focused much of our attention here at Life After on Jesus as of late! For us, that’s a good thing, and we’re praying as we embark upon the busy ‘holiday season’, Mormons will take a step back and hit the pause button to reflect upon who He is to them, and equally as important, who the Bible says He is!

 

Today we’re going back to the basics. I received an e-mail from a dear friend asking me if I could provide links to the resources in one of our articles. Because this is so heavy with references, we decided to post this as our article for today – along with the updates. Thanks go out to S. for making this request!

Our article my friend requested is ‘The Jesus of Mormonism’, and it comes from our ‘Foundation of Mormonism’ series. Here we go! (more…)

Luke 1:35 “And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God.””

Today we’re looking at the Jesus of Mormonism, and the real Jesus found in the Bible.

The reason we’re doing this stems from a number of ‘coincidences’ that have taken place in the past week . One of those things was an e-mail I received from Melissa, and without her knowledge, it happened to be the same subject matter of our scheduled witnessing tip for today. In addition to those two things, I received an e-mail from a distraught Mormon telling me she just found out that Mormons believe God had sex with Mary to create Jesus. Oh be still my heart…

All those things combined, told us we need to remind people why the Jesus of Mormonism is not the same Jesus of the Bible! (more…)

Gospel Through the Ages, pp. 19-21 “Jesus Christ, the only perfect man who has lived on this earth, was perfect because He obeyed all the principles and ordinances of the Gospel… As a reward for the valiant work of the Son of Man, He shall eventually—when this earth is celestialized—become its God, King, and Ruler …and the God who will be directly responsible for the administration of those laws will be none other than the holy Man of Galilee.” – Milton Hunter, 1945 (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation 1:16; “WHEN TO USE TITLE: “THE CHRIST.” The name Christ is a title comparable to the title Messiah and meaning The Anointed One, and has reference to the office of our Savior. If the remarks of a speaker have reference to the nature and calling of our Lord in the office which he holds, then the definite article preceding the name is in perfect order. However, when we are speaking of the Redeemer in some other sense than by reference to his official title, it is well for us not to use the article, but the whole name of our Lord, or, even better still, in order to avoid the too frequent repetition, we can say our Redeemer or Savior or the Lord.

The great lesson for us to learn, in all our preaching, writing, and conversations, is to use the titles of Deity sparingly, not with familiarity, or with lack of reverence.” – Joseph Fielding Smith, 10th LDS Prophet, 1954

Isaiah 7:14; “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

With Easter right around the corner, we thought it’d be a good time to point out a few interpretations of His birth provided by the LDS Church compared to the word of God!

As you meet with your Mormon friends and loved ones in the upcoming glorious season, remember the following things are what Mormons believe about Him. Don’t pass up the opportunity to share the truth, and show with demonstrative examples what God says!
