 Psalm 101:7; “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.”

 General Conference, ‘Gathering the Family of God,’ April 2017; “Today is April 1. Two days from now, April 3, marks 181 years from the day when Malachi’s prophecy was fulfilled. On that day, Elijah did come, and he gave to Joseph Smith the priesthood power to seal families eternally (see D&C 110:13–16). From that day to this, interest in exploring one’s family history has grown exponentially. …

Why is all of this happening? For lack of a better term, we call it the “spirit of Elijah.” We could also equally call it “fulfillment of prophecy.” I bear testimony that Elijah did come. The hearts of the children—of you and me—have turned to our fathers, our ancestors. The affection you feel for your ancestors is part of the fulfillment of that prophecy. It is deeply seated in your sense of who you are. But it has to do with more than just inherited DNA. …This is the work of our generation, what the Apostle Paul called “the dispensation of the fulness of times,” – Henry B. Eyring

 Recently I came across an article in Meridian Magazine titled “Finding Our Way Through the Veil” by Wallace Goddard that I found quite chilling.

Before I get into the article, it’s important for you know that when Mormons talk about the veil, it’s referred to in a few different ways.

Wilford Woodruff 2 Journal of Discourses 23:330-331; “It is our duty to build these temples. It is our duty to enter into them and redeem our dead. Joseph Smith is preaching to the spirits in prison; so are all the elders who have died in the faith. There are millions of them there, and they must have the gospel offered to them.

Genealogy Conference PanelToday we’re looking at the definition of worship in three different settings. The reason for this stems from the repeated articles on LDS websites directing members to be diligent in their temple work. Two examples can be seen in the seminars they hold, and directives telling bishops to install teenagers as ‘family history consultants’ for their local wards – see Church News February 2015.

Dictionary.com defines worship as ‘reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage’. Keep that in mind as we look at our examples today.

brigham youngJournal of Discourses, 3:369; “When you lay down this tabernacle, where are you going? Into the spiritual world. Are you going into Abraham’s bosom? No, not anywhere nigh there but into the spirit world. Where is the spirit world? It is right here. Do the good and evil spirits go together? Yes, they do. Do they both inhabit one kingdom? Yes, they do. Do they go to the sun? No. Do they go beyond the boundaries of the organized earth? No, they do not. They are brought forth upon this earth, for the express purpose of inhabiting it to all eternity. Where else are you going? Nowhere else, only as you may be permitted.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, June 22, 1856

Astrology

While doing some research for an article we’re working on I came across an interesting piece of information in Mormon Doctrine written by Bruce McConkie who was a Mormon apostle. Now while many Mormons discount his encyclopedic work, the Church continues to sell his book and actually quote from it in articles and speeches.

The entry in Mormon Doctrine that caught my attention was on the subject of astrology. Interestingly enough the Church denounces the practice of astrology yet has many carvings on the outside of the Nauvoo and Salt Lake Temple of that very thing.

Necromancy

I’m sure all of us remember with fondness the day we were born again. The absolute helplessness we experience as we give up the power struggle we fought so hard for all those years is an event we never forget.
