Archive for the ‘News Announcements of Mormon Church’ Category

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. To read the article in full click on the link provided above. Here we go!

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.”

Temple Endowment 7Recently the Mormon Church debuted a video discussing their “sacred” garments and other clothing worn in the temple endowment ceremony.
During the video it said that their white undergarments and temple clothing represent “purity”. As I think about this a few questions come to mind such as:
What makes those garments white and pure?
Is it the blood of Jesus Christ, or is it obedience the laws of the Mormon gospel?
What do they really represent?

Salt Lake TempleLast week the Church decided to chime in and give their opinion on the gay marriage issue.  Here’s what they had to say;

20 December 2013

“The Church has been consistent in its support of traditional marriage while teaching that all people should be treated with respect. This ruling by a district court will work its way through the judicial process. We continue to believe that voters in Utah did the right thing by providing clear direction in the state constitution that marriage should be between a man and a woman and we are hopeful that this view will be validated by a higher court.”
