Mormon Decisions 10The other day I came across an online repository of sorts filled with LDS references about the Mormon Holy Ghost. The quotes were taken from speeches, and writings of past and present leaders of Mormonism, and as it turned out the page was written by a professor at BYU, Bruce K. Satterfield.

Looking over some of these I can’t help but feel sorry for those who absorb this into their spirit. There’s mass confusion from one leader to the next with no solid foundational truth upon which to stand. It’s no wonder the #1 issue for many new ex-Mormons is a lack of confidence about God’s Holy Spirit, and how He operates.

I just cannot imagine living life without God’s Holy Spirit as a constant staple in my life. When I’m lonely, or unsure about life, without fail, He is always there to guide me along and clarify doubts for me in His word and His presence.

Mormon Decisions 10If there’s ever been a group of people cut from the same cloth, the leaders of Mormonism surely fit the bill. Check out the vocabulary these so-called men of God have used to describe Cain, Joseph Smith and his parents, as well as their prophet Lehi.

Cain Born of Goodly Parents?

The Way to Perfection, pp. 97 – 98; “BORN OF GOODLY PARENTS Cain was born of goodly parents. Michael, the great prince, who helped form the earth, was his father. No man, save Jesus Christ, was ever blessed with greater honor or responsibility than Michael. No man deserved to be honored more than he. He had been given the first place in the history of the world and was taught directly from the heavens. Cain had the great honor of being Adam’s son, and he, too, was privileged with the same blessings as his father. What a mighty man he could have been! How his name might have stood out with excellent luster as that of one of the valiant sons of God! How he might have been honored to the latest generation! But he would have none of it!” – Joseph Fielding Smith [emp. mine]

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, ‘I have a Question,’ OCTOBER 1973; “Why was it necessary for Elijah to be taken into heaven as he was? Are there other prominent persons who did not taste of death—and do we regard Moses as being translated instead of dying?

Alma P. Burton

Since Elijah and Moses were foreordained to perform earthly ordinances before the death and resurrection of Christ, it was necessary that they retain their physical bodies beyond the natural time of their lives. President Joseph Fielding Smith has written:

Mormon Decisions 10Our purpose in today’s post is twofold!

First and foremost, we’re asking Christians to pray for those caught in the lies of Mormonism. This is a never-ending request!

Secondly, we want to reiterate, and emphasize, our reasons for posting the info we do. We’re not here to bash the Mormon people. Our hearts are broken, and want nothing but for them to have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We provide the info in hopes they’ll allow God to open their eyes to the truth.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 1:108-109; “If you want to know what to doBrigham Young with a thief that you may find stealing, I say kill him on the spot, and never suffer him to commit another iniquity. I will prove by my works whether I can mete out justice to such persons, or not. I would consider it just as much my duty to do that, as to baptize a man for the remission of his sins.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, May 8, 1853

Mormon Decisions 10Gospel Principles, Chapter 19, pp. 107-113; “Our sincere sorrowSpencer Kimball should lead us to forsake (stop) sinning. It does little good to admit that we have sinned if we do not stop doing the evil thing. If we truly repent of our sins, we will do them no more. If a person has stolen, he will steal no more. If he has lied, he will lie no more. If he committed adultery, he will stop this evil practice.” “To make our repentance complete we must always keep the commandments of the Lord (see D&C 1:32). A person is not fully repentant who does not pay his tithes or does not keep the Sabbath day holy or refuses to obey the Word of Wisdom. He is not repentant if he does not sustain the authorities of the Church …” – Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 200 cited by Spencer W. Kimball

There seems to be a prophetic spirit running through the construction of all that cast superstructure, pointing forward to the very end. Allowing one year to a cubit inch the generation that will close up the times of the Gentiles.” – Orson Pratt
