‘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 2:17

 The Promised Messiah: The First Coming of Christ, p. 133 “No doctrine is more basic; no doctrine embraces a greater incentive to personal righteousness . . . as does the wondrous concept that man can be as his Maker. It was revealed first to Adam, to whom—after his baptism, after he had received the holy priesthood, after he had walked in paths of righteousness—the Lord said: “Thou art one in me, a son of God, and thus may all become my sons.” (Moses 6:68)” — Bruce R. McConkie, 1978 [emp. added] Continue Reading »

General Conference, ‘We Believe All That God Has Revealed,’ April 1974 “…In the Church we do something that very few do any more: We read the Bible. And we are blessed with other scriptures, also books of revelation: The Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.” — Boyd K. Packer Continue Reading »

A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, p. 290Sins are remitted not in the waters of baptism, as we say in speaking figuratively, but when we receive the Holy Ghost. It is the Holy Spirit of God that erases carnality and brings us into a state of righteousness. We become clean when we actually receive the fellowship and companionship of the Holy Ghost. It is then that sin and dross and evil are burned out of our souls as though by fire.” — Bruce R. McConkie [emp. added] Continue Reading »

General Conference, ‘Cleansing The Inner Vessel,’ October 2010 “Priesthood holders carry with them the antidote to remove the terrible images of pornography and to wash away guilt. The priesthood has the power to unlock the influence of our habits, even to unchain from addiction, however tight the grip. It can heal over the scars of past mistakes.” — Boyd K. Packer  Continue Reading »

Ensign, ‘Why the Lord Ordained Prayer,’ January 1976 “We are to solve our own problems and then to counsel with the Lord in prayer and receive a spiritual confirmation that our decisions are correct.” — Bruce R. McConkie Continue Reading »

Gospel Doctrine, p. 228 “The bishop should encourage every man, woman and child who earns and receives a return for labor, to honor the Lord and to prove obedient to the law of God by giving the one-tenth of that which he or she receives, as the Lord requires, so that they may have their names enrolled on the book of the law of the Lord, that their genealogies may be had in the archives of the Church, and that they may be entitled to the privileges and blessings of the house of God.” — Joseph F. Smith Also see Conference Report April 1900, pp. 48-49. Continue Reading »

Ensign, ‘How Can I Pray as the Savior Taught?’ October 2020 “When Christ visited the Nephites, He prayed with them 11 times.  Through word and example, He taught them how they should pray. Latter-day prophets, seers, and revelators continue to teach what the Savior taught about prayer. … Don’t multiply many words… “Our prayers should be simple, direct, and sincere.”” Continue Reading »

Today we’re looking at a couple of fundamental LDS doctrines. We’re praying members would look at these and ask themselves why Joseph Smith would teach such contradictory doctrine.

We can guarantee this isn’t how the God of the Bible operates!

If you’re a Christian, please, pray for those in the LDS Church, and in a loving manner, share the truth today!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

“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.” Luke 17:2

The September issue of Liahona included the September issue of the kid’s magazine, Friend.

In that portion, the Church wanted kids to count the number of times the word ‘fowl’, appears in the first chapter of Genesis.

Their article should give everyone pause, and for a few reasons! Continue Reading »

Doctrine and Covenants 107:48-52 “Enoch was twenty-five years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam; and he was sixty-five and Adam blessed him 49 And he saw the Lord, and he walked with him, and was before his face continually; and he walked with God three hundred and sixty-five years, making him four hundred and thirty years old when he was translated. 50 Methuselah was one hundred years old when he was ordained under the hand of Adam. 51 Lamech was thirty-two years old when he was ordained under the hand of Seth. 52 Noah was ten years old when he was ordained under the hand of Methuselah.” Continue Reading »

1 Peter 1:25 “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”

Journal of Discourses 2:75-76 “The words contained in this Bible are merely a history of what is gone by; it was never given to guide the servant of God in the course he should pursue, any more than the words and commandments of God, given to a generation under one set of circumstances, would serve for another generation under another set of circumstances…The Bible is not a sufficient guide; it is only the history of the people who lived 1800 years ago. The history of our Church in this day, presents the scenes and transactions of this people—the revelations and words of God to them…” – Orson Hyde, Salt Lake City, October 6, 1854

The Spirit of Elijah, by Definition, Is the Holy Ghost as His Directing Influence Guides Those Who Participate in Family History and Temple Work [2.6] ““The Spirit of Elijah” is a manifestation of the Holy Ghost. [2.6.1] Latter-day Saints often talk about “the Spirit of Elijah.” This phrase refers to the workings of the Holy Ghost upon individuals that creates an excitement and desire “to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers” (D&C 110:15) and to be involved in the work of family history. Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explained: “What is sometimes called the Spirit of Elijah [is] a manifestation of the Holy Ghost bearing witness of the divine nature of the family. Hence, people throughout the world, regardless of religious affiliation, are gathering records of deceased relatives at an ever-increasing rate” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1998, 43; or Ensign, May 1998, 34).”

Articles of Faith, p. 202 “The gospel of Christ is the everlasting gospel; its principles, laws, and ordinances, and the Church organization founded thereon, must be ever the same.” —James Talmage Continue Reading »

The Articles of Faith, p. 178 “There is an entire absence of scriptural sanction for giving the sacrament to any who are not members in full fellowship in the Church of Christ. Christ administered the ordinance on the eastern continent to His apostles only; and we have record of their giving it to those only who had assumed the name of Christ. Amongst His western fold, Christ established the law that only the actual members of His Church should partake.

In promising to ordain one among them with power to officiate in the sacrament, the Savior specified that the one so chosen should give it unto the people of His Church, unto all those who believed and were baptized in His name.” Only those indeed who had been so baptized were called the Church of Christ. Continuing His instructions to the disciples concerning the sacrament, the Savior said: “This shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name.” — James Talmage Continue Reading »
