salt lake mormon temple 2 Mormon Doctrine, 2d ed. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1966], 183; “Deacons are “appointed to watch over the church, to be standing ministers unto the church.” (D. & C. 84:111.) …

Among other things, it is the practice of the Church to assign them to pass the sacrament, perform messenger service, act as ushers, keep church facilities in good repair, go home teaching, and perform special assignments at the direction of the bishopric. Many of their assigned functions are comparable to those performed by the Levites of old. (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, pp. 111-114.)” – Bruce R. McConkie [emp. mine]

November 13 – Hebrews 7:1-4; “For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.”

Priesthood Power – What is it?

Ensign, May 2010, 48; “We have this priesthood power, and we should all be prepared to use it properly.” – Dallin H. Oaks, “Healing the Sick”

Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 1134; “The word “priesthood” has several meanings for Latter-day Saints:1. Priesthood is power, the power of God, a vital source of eternal strength and energy delegated to men to act in all things for the well-being of mankind, both in the world and out of it (DS 3:80; Romney, p. 43). Priesthood is authority, the exclusive right to act in the name of God as his authorized agents and to perform ordinances for the purpose of opening certain spiritual blessings to all individuals.”

Mormon Priesthood Enlarges the Soul

I’m often asked by Mormon missionaries where I get my authority from to preach the gospel.  What is so sad about this situation is the demeanor these boys come to my home with.  They’ve been taught and now believe, they are the only people with the authority to go on a mission, preach the gospel and decipher who’s telling the truth.

Mormon Lifestyles & Daily Routines 

     The Mormon life is beset with many activities they see as necessary in their ultimate goal towards salvation.  Now while we can all be guilty of over scheduling our lives at times, we are assured by the Lord that we are never responsible for our own salvation – Ephesians 2:8-9 says; “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”   Good works are always a manifestation of our salvation; they never serve as a result of salvation.  They are faith in action; never because we must earn our own place beside Him.    Unfortunately for the Mormon this is not what they’ve been taught to believe.
