Luke 19:41 “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it”.

LDS Church News, ‘Prophet Visits the Holy Land,’ April 2018; “The reason why prophets are needed is because Heavenly Father wants His children to have the opportunity to come home to Him,”…“God has always dealt with His children on the earth through prophets, but He wants them to choose to come home. So those people who choose to obey the commandments [given through prophets] will have that opportunity to return home with their families in eternal life together,” said President Nelson…

…“This is a legendary land,” Elder Holland said. “It’s a spine-tingling thrill for me to realize that I’m in the company of President Russell M. Nelson, a modern prophet in every sense that they were ancient prophets [in Jerusalem in biblical times] with the same authority and the same priesthood and teaching the same gospel.”

Elder Holland continued, “Our living testimony today is we have a living prophet this very hour on this soil standing in this land teaching that same doctrine.”

August 8, 2017

For the first time in almost thirty years, the LDS Church has ex-communicated a General Authority. After a disciplinary hearing, James J. Hamula, a member of the Seventies, was officially ‘let go’ of his duties.

Mr. Hamula was originally called to his position in 2008. He served in various positions, which included callings in New Zealand, until 2014. At that time he was transferred stateside to serve at the Church History Department from 2014-2016, and his final position as executive director of the Correlation Department.

LDS Church News, ‘Help Youth Gain a Testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith,’ 22 December 2016;

joseph-smith-jesus-christ-grove-of-trees If you’re  follower of Jesus Christ, you’ll be sure to pick up on why the LDS Newsroom Message is disturbing. As you might imagine, our hearts were saddened upon the reading of this Newsroom announcement. We’re wondering why they aren’t helping the youth gain a testimony of Christ Jesus and Him crucified?

Be sure to check out the date of this news release – it was December 22nd, the day before the anniversary of Smith’s birth,  yet there’s no mention of Jesus…hmmm… We’ll be looking at a few of Ms. Oscarson’s comments and ask a few questions.

James 1:8 “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Mormon Newsroom IconChurch News, ‘1492 Voyage Fulfilled Prophecy,’ September 26, 1992

Looking at the title of this newsroom announcement would lead one to believe there’s hard proof Columbus’ voyage fulfilled a prophecy. Right?

Wrong.

This church news announcement has to be one of the most insidious things I’ve seen from the Church. It’s filled with deliberate attempts to confuse people like my mother, and cause overall false hope about something that didn’t happen to begin with.

We’re listing a review on key elements from this announcement, followed by our questions about this whole thing. The entire ‘prophecy’ is listed thereafter.

Anyone serious about the Lord has to wonder…Why would the leadership of a ‘God fearing’ church say things like this??????

Luke 17:2 “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

Isaiah 29:13-16; “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”

“The Book of Mormon is a ‘miraculous miracle,’ says President Russell M. Nelson at 2016 Seminar for New Mission Presidents”

Russell Nelson ProvoThe two quotes above are the focus of what we’re looking at today. One tells of an awful scenario in Israel’s future, and the other is a lie.

d-todd-christoffersonRecently the Mormon Church made changes to their handbook for bishops, stake presidents and other church leaders. Such changes include:

Placing “same-sex marriage under the definition of apostasy and as a circumstance that requires the convening of a disciplinary council”. It “also clarifies that the ordinance of naming and blessing a child may not be performed for children living with a parent in a same-gender relationship.”
