Romans 8:27-28; “And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Calvin once said, ‘All things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life.’

I’ve no doubt many Christians have voiced the same thought Calvin did, and held strongly to the belief if Jesus isn’t the orchestrator of life, no one is. The assurance of salvation Christians enjoy is a key indicator of their devotion to the God they worship.

 

Brigham YoungJournal of Discourses 4:217; “You may hear the divines of the day extol the character of the Saviour, undertake to exhibit his true character before the people, and give an account of his origin, and were it not ridiculous, I would tell what I have thought about their views. Brother Kimball wants me to tell it, therefore you will excuse me if I do. I have frequently thought of mules, which you know are half horse and half ass, when reflecting upon the representations made by those divines. I have heard sectarian priests undertake to tell the character of the Son of God, and they make him half of one species and half of another, and I could not avoid thinking at once of the mule, which is the most hateful creature that ever was made, I believe. You will excuse me, but I have thus thought many a time.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, February 8, 1857

1 Timothy 4:1; “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

kneel foot crossThe dangers of Mormonism are many, and stand out as a constant reminder for Christians to always be on alert to protect themselves from Satan. In the words of Walter Martin; ‘the cults are the unpaid bills of the church’.  We also concur with the Apostle Paul who warned the Galatians to beware of the false gospel. In this case the lies come from the Mormons’ gospel, and their Christ who sounds and looks, eerily similar to the Jesus we know in the Bible. Galatians 1:6-9

Matthew 22:41-42; “While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.”

Woes to the Scribes and PhariseesAs we’re coming closer to Easter and Holy Week, I’ve been pondering on events in Jerusalem at this time 2,000 years ago. It’s easy to get caught up in my own traditions and lose sight of the long range ideals of the Lord, so to slow down I plop myself into 33 AD.

With that in mind, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the prophetic events of that first Easter, so over the next few weeks we’ll be exploring the significance of several events. We’ll see how they all pointed directly to their fulfillment in just one person, that being Christ Jesus our Lord. The goal is to find out what people at that time thought of Jesus. What were the concerns of different groups like the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes? What about the average Jew living at the time?

Moreover, what about the Mormons of today? What do they think of Christ, and what are their thoughts on the events 2,000 years ago? So here we go!

Matthew 15:9; “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Today we’re asking how the Church uses this all important name. We’re looking at Mormon Doctrine, written by Bruce McConkie, once a leading authority in the LDS Church.

Mormon Doctrine Bruce McConkieMormon Doctrine, p. 269; “See CHRIST, VIRGIN BIRTH. Christ is Immanuel, Emmanuel the King Immanuel (D. & C. 128:22), signifying literally, God is with us. This designation used by Isaiah in a great Messianic prophecy (Isa. 7:14), bruce mcconkiealluded to by Micah as referring to the birth of our Lord (Mic. 5:3), and specifically named by Matthew as having reference to the Virgin Birth (Matt. 1:18-25), signifies that Christ as God would be born into mortality of a virgin and would be with men to save and redeem them.”

Note: the reference for the link above comes from the online version of Mormon Doctrine, p. 269. Gospelink, and other versions of Mormon Doctrine list ‘Immanuel’ on p. 376.

Journal of Discourses 12:314; “I do not say that we have a Gospel, but I say that we have the definite and only Gospel that ever was or ever will be that will save the children of men.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, November 29, 1868

The Mormon Jesus

Ensign Article November 2011, “The Teachings of Jesus”

We could sit at our computers all day, every day of the year to write and publish articles and that’d be okay.  However, none of those articles mean anything or can do anything if we don’t have the right understanding of Jesus.
