The Improvement Era, Vol. 55, No. 11, November 1952, p. 789 “Some Principles of a Happy Home … There is nothing temporary in the home of the Latter-day Saints. There is no element of transitoriness in the family relationship. To the Latter-day Saint the home is truly the basic unit of society; and parenthood is next to Godhood. The secret of good citizenship lies in the home. The secret of instilling faith in God, faith in his Son, the Redeemer of the world, faith in the organizations of the Church, lies in the home.” — David O. McKay Continue Reading »

Journal of Discourses 23:327 “HARDSHIP THE HERITAGE OF THE SAINTS…There was apparently nothing that the Savior could do that was acceptable in the eyes of the world; anything and almost everything he did was imputed to an unholy influence…it seemed necessary for the Savior to descend below all things that he might ascend above all things. So it has been with other men.

When I look at the history of Joseph Smith, I sometimes think that he came as near following the footsteps of the Savior…as anyone possibly could. Joseph Smith was called to lay down his life; he sealed his testimony with his blood, and passed through some serious trials and afflictions.

In section 122 of the Book of Doctrine and Covenants… —the Lord showed him his condition and position. He refers there to the trials and troubles he was called to pass through, and then compares them with what He Himself (the Savior) had to endure*

The Lord showed him in this revelation that these afflictions were necessary. We have been called to pass through trials many times, and I do not think we should complain, because if we had no trials we should hardly feel at home in the other world in the company of the Prophets and Apostles who were sawn asunder, crucified, etc., for the word of God and testimony of Jesus Christ…I look upon the mission of the Latter-day Saints as being as important as that of any people that ever lived in any age of the world…” ─ Wilford Woodruff, Kaysville, Utah, December 10, 1882 Continue Reading »

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”.

 Yesterday (July 15, 2020) the Church announced the publication of Eliza Snow’s Discourses anyone can read online.

In case you’re unaware, Ms. Snow was the 2nd president of the Relief Society, and older sister of Lorenzo Snow, the Church’s 5th prophet/president. She was the 14th wife of Joe Smith, and became the 10th wife of Brigham Young, 4 months after Smith’s death. She lived from 1804 – 1887.

The Church had nothing but glowing reports about Eliza. Here in part is what they said – Continue Reading »

LDS Contradictions: BoM Says Law Doesn’t Save; Mormonism Says It Does

Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”.

 Today we’re looking at simple comparisons of works, v. grace.

Our objective in doing so is for Christians to have the tools/resources to share the truth with a Mormon they might know.

If you’re LDS, we humbly ask you look over the evidence given, and ask yourself if God would really send so many conflicting messages to you. We promise beloved, this isn’t how the God of the Bible operates!

Please, pray for Mormons to know the difference, and for Jesus to intervene!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

Helaman 7:10-11 “And behold, now it came to pass that it was upon a tower, which was in the garden of Nephi, which was by the highway which led to the chief market, which was in the city of Zarahemla; therefore, Nephi had bowed himself upon the tower which was in his garden, which tower was also near unto the garden gate by which led the highway. 11 And it came to pass that there were certain men passing by and saw Nephi as he was pouring out his soul unto God upon the tower; and they ran and told the people what they had seen, and the people came together in multitudes that they might know the cause of so great mourning for the wickedness of the people.” Continue Reading »

1 Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”.

Ensign, ‘Adam’s Role in Bringing Us Mortality’, January 2006 “Adam came here to bring mortality upon the earth…Adam did only what he had to do. He partook of that fruit for one good reason, and that was to open the door to bring you and me and everyone else into this world… One of these days, if I ever get to where I can speak to Mother Eve, I want to thank her for tempting Adam to partake of the fruit.” — Joseph Fielding Smith [Taken from an October 1967 general conference address.] Continue Reading »

LDS Contradictions: The Sin of Adam and Eve 

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Genesis 3:23-24 “Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

1 Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”.

One of the biggest tragedies of Mormonism can be found in their doctrines about the Fall of mankind. The word ambiguity doesn’t come close to describing how contradictory their beliefs are on this topic. We pray that all Christians will take the time to share truth with a Mormon, and tell them of the love you have for Jesus! Continue Reading »
