 General Conference, ‘Trusting the Doctrine of Christ,’ April 2023 “…If we are to accept President Nelson’s invitation to have the doctrine of Christ rooted in the marrow of our bones, we must deepen our conversion to the Lord by study, prayer, faithful living and continual repentance.

We must invite the Holy Ghost to engrave the doctrine of Christ ‘in fleshy tables of [our hearts]’ (2 Corinthians 3:3) as permanently as it was engraved by Nephi upon the plates of gold. … Building “on the foundation of a covenantal relationship with Christ, we are trusting the doctrine of Christ, and, as we come unto Him, we have His promise of eternal life.” — Evan A. Schmutz Continue Reading »

Exodus 6:7 “And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”

 In July 2014 the LDS Church published an essay on the translation process of the Book of Abraham. You can read our response to this here.

This post is in response to an e-mail I recently received asking me to pray Moroni 10:4-6 and ask God about the Book of Abraham.

My first concern/question is why. Why did Joseph Smith want Mormons to become burdened with another Egyptian enslavement? Why did he lead them back to what God had already redeemed the Israelites from?

Secondly, I can honestly say I’m not going to pray to receive a positive outcome for something I already know isn’t true. What I can, and have done here is respond and let this dear Mormon know why I can’t trust the Book of Abraham.

Heaven’s Gatekeeper

 Journal of Discourses 7:289 “…no man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith. From the day that the Priesthood was taken from the earth to the winding-up scene of all things, every man and woman must have the certificate of Joseph Smith, junior, as a passport to their entrance into the mansion where God and Christ are—I with you and you with me. I cannot go there without his consent. He holds the keys of that kingdom for the last dispensation—the keys to rule in the spirit-world; and he rules there triumphantly…” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 9, 1859
