John 3:19-20; “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 203; “Ignorance of the Nature of Spirits

“Try the spirits,” but what by? Are we to try them by the creeds of men? What preposterous folly—what sheer ignorance—what madness! Try the motions and actions of an eternal being (for I contend that all spirits are such) by a thing that was conceived in ignorance, and brought forth in folly—a cobweb of yesterday! Angels would hide their faces, and devils would be ashamed and insulted, and would say, “Paul we know, and Jesus we know, but who are ye?” Let each man of society make a creed and try evil spirits by it, and the devil would shake his sides; it is all that he would ask—all that he would desire. Yet many of them do this, and hence “many spirits are abroad in the world.” – Joseph Smith, April 1, 1842,  HC 4:571

…The Word of God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8

The God of the Bible is so faithful.  He protects all that He creates.  He gives His Word to His people so that if they read it they will know the truth. Throughout  the Old Testament whenever the Bible which was written on scrolls was lost or even destroyed God preserved His Word.  Lost scrolls were found in the temple, of course, and then the people were called to listen to the Word being read to them. This happened at the beginning of the reign of King Josiah (2 Chron. 34:15).

When  the stone tablets with the 10 commandments, were broken by Moses, who was angry at the people’s blatant idolatry, God restored them. After Moses had reestablished control in the camp and the evil doers punished, God told him to return up the mountain with 2 new tablets to receive the written Word again.

Why Mormons Can’t Celebrate Good Friday

Originally posted March 2013

Cross, Amy CarmichaelI’m certain I’m not alone when I say that Good Friday always gives us lots to think upon and pray about! Each of us has our own list of reasons why we’re grateful God intervened in our life and we each carry our own set of memories why this day is special for us.

One of the most memorable experiences for me dates back to my days in Junior High School of all things. At the time I had become friends with a handful of other girls and as it turned out I was the only Mormon. My small group of friends included a Catholic, a Presbyterian, an Episcopalian and a Methodist. I began noticing my Catholic friend only ate fish on Fridays and while all the girls had their own set of doctrinal creeds they held dear, their customs afforded me a front row seat to other cultures right there in the heart of Utah Mormonism. I began wondering what it’d be like to attend a church that had a cross somewhere on the building.
