 Warning for those contemplating membership in the Mormon Church!

Question of the Day:

What happens to people who die before having had a chance to hear the gospel?

Today we’re looking over LDS prophecies concerning the fate of mankind; LDS, and otherwise.

As we look over LDS canon, we can clearly see how Smith’s directives evolved over time. In the beginning stages of his preaching, the fate of those who didn’t fully obey the gospel was clearly defined. His signature canon, the Book of Mormon published in 1830, declared there are no 2nd chances. His chronic contradictions were implemented to create confusion, not peace.

1830

God the “Great Spirit”

salt lake mormon temple 2Alma 22:9-11; “And the king said: Is God that Great Spirit that brought our fathers out of the land of Jerusalem? 10 And Aaron said unto him: Yea, he is that Great Spirit, and he created all things both in heaven and in earth. Believest thou this? 11 And he said: Yea, I believe that the Great Spirit created all things, and I desire that ye should tell me concerning all these things, and I will believe thy words.”

Why does Alma disagree with Joseph Smith?

George Washington's QuestionYou probably saw this title and thought “Wait a minute – what?!?”

That’s what I thought as I was reading some letters of George Washington written during the time he led this country to its independence.

I confess, I’m obsessed with the history of wars.  My true love of war history is my obsession with all things that have to do with WW2 and Hitler, but the Civil and Revolutionary Wars hold a close second.

They Fell to the Earth in the Book of Mormon

This article is focusing on the phrase “they fell to the earth”.  As I was gathering info on another topic I kept coming across this unusual phrase with different variations. Intrigued by its appearance, I decided to list it as a topic in our series so here we are!

Law of Moses and Salvation through Christ

Alma 25:16;Now they did not suppose that salvation came by the law of Moses; but the law of Moses did serve to strengthen their faith in Christ; and thus they did retain a hope through faith, unto eternal salvation, relying upon the spirit of prophecy, which spake of those things to come.” – BC 90

John 5:39-40; Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.  40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

How do you strengthen the Law of Moses through faith in Christ when it’s 90 BC?

March 16 – Matt. 2:1; “Now Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea…”

_____

As of 2004, the Book of Mormon has had more than 4,000 changes made to it that are not considered typographical errors.  Even today’s writings in the Book of Mormon contain a falsehood about Jesus’ birthplace.  Ask your Mormon friend what they think about this and remind them that their personal opinion matters to you!

December 24 – Hebrews 11:6; “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

_____

Like little children on Christmas Eve, we are restless when we are not rewarded by the Lord.  We become anxious when we don’t get a quick return after witnessing or volunteering at the bake sale at our church.  We don’t stop to realize that our reward is already here.  Yes, there is a bigger reward in heaven awaiting us, but how much time is wasted while we wait for something better when all we have to do is to look back at history and to Him! 

Two thousand years ago our Promise was delivered.  We have an advantage that Abraham never had.  He obeyed out of faith, never receiving the promises but believing God would provide for him. Hebrews 11:13. 

The Mormons are working themselves to death and for what?  Nothing.  They are rewarded with nothing but the devastating news they weren’t worshipping the right Jesus that was born in Bethlehem.  Even their own books say He wasn’t born in Bethlehem.  If that simple thing is wrong, what else in their writings could be wrong as well? 

What are you waiting for?  Tell them the Promise is already here!
