Revelation 22:19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

Today we’re looking at part of D&C 32. The entire section contains only 5 verses, but its significance is how it contains 5 failed prophecies of Joe Smith.

For now we’re looking at v. 3. We’ve provided all 5 verses at the end of this article, along with the LDS link. (more…)

The Restoration

mormon-missionary-discussions-1.pngOnce again before getting into the discussion, missionaries are to ask the investigators for a commitment to be baptized.

In the instructions missionaries read it says –

“If the investigators have not yet committed themselves to be baptized or have not yet attended Church meetings, these commitments must be among your major objectives for this discussion.”

At this point and even prior to it, investigators are expected to make a commitment to the church before they have been presented with all the information necessary to make an informed decision. This is only discussion three, there are three more lessons they must have before they are baptized, what’s the hurry? Why do they need a commitment so soon? These are just a couple of questions that have come to mind as I’ve started this series.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 4:1; “I have learned by experience that there is but one God that pertains to this people, and He is the God that pertains to this earth-the first man. That first man sent his own Son to redeem the world, to redeem his brethren; his life was taken, his blood shed, that our sins might be remitted. That Son called twelve men and ordained them to be Apostles, and when he departed the keys of the kingdom were deposited with three of those twelve, viz.: Peter, James, and John. Peter held the keys pertaining to that Presidency, and he was the head.” – Heber Chase Kimball, Salt Lake Territory, June 29, 1856

What is the LDS Restoration Built Upon?

salt lake mormon temple 2Answers to Gospel Questions 2:161; “No Bible student today believes that the Bible has come down to us in its perfect and original appearance in the manuscripts. Scribes left out words and phrases, just as we do at times in typing, missing one whole line and thus changing the meaning. Moreover, the scribes added or interpreted according to their own opinions at times. These things are quite generally understood. Therefore we find errors and contradictions in the Bible.”

Why the LDS Church is True

(According to an e-mail I received)

     While I receive many e-mails for the ministry, one that caught my attention the most came from a Mormon a while back by the name of Shane.  In his 15 page defense of the Church, a common theme ran throughout which has prompted this reply. I still use this e-mail as a response to other Mormons who write in with the exact copy & paste reasons the Church is true.

     This Mormon took it upon himself to copy and paste a large section from the LDS website to let us know why the Church is true.

     As the Christian will see, the reasoning he employs is lacking in spiritual maturity by using their (the LDS) defense.  His spiritual condition doesn’t promote ridicule on our part, but once again begs for empathy from those of us who’ve walked the same path.  It saddens me he can’t or won’t stop long enough to compile his own reasons for trusting the LDS Church.  Instead it’s a copy and paste world in the minds of many Mormons.  The way he responded also reminds me of a common response we see with many Mormons.

     For instance, when asked where the proof is that someone like Nephi existed they’ll ask what proof there is the apostles existed. Instead of answering the question with definitive answer about Nephi, they attack the Bible.
