Intelligent People in Darkness Rejecting Joseph

 Journal of Discourses 8:223 “Every intelligent person under the heavens that does NOT, when informed, acknowledge that Joseph Smith, jun. is a Prophet of God, is in darkness, and is opposed to us and to Jesus and his kingdom on the earth. What do you suppose I think of them? They cannot conceive their own degradation.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 21, 1860

Today we’re taking another look at the self-proclaimed authority Joseph Smith bestowed upon himself. Above all things, don’t forget to pray for Jesus to open the eyes of Mormons who’ve fallen for the trickeries of Mr. Smith. The following article was originally published in 2015 and still a great tool to show how Smith had no authority at all.

How did Joseph Smith receive the authority to hold the keys of priesthood?       

This question should be one of the most important questions to ask the Mormon people.  The LDS Church says that “priesthood is power” so this means they view themselves as the only authority to speak for and act in behalf of God.

I had the privilege of asking my dear friend Ed Decker to write a chapter in my mentoring handbook and so we’re answering our dilemma question today with Ed’s contribution!

The Parables & the Woes 

Isaiah 53:1, 3 “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

The day after Jesus cursed the fig tree and equated its fruitless wonder to the nation of Israel, He once again readied Himself for the day ahead as He gathered the disciples and set out for the 30 minute walk to Jerusalem.

Holy Week; Monday

 A Fig Tree and A Den of Thieves

Mark 11:12-14 “And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it.”

In what is known today as the West Bank, Jesus spent the night with His friends Lazarus, Mary and Martha in Bethany. Being relatively close to Jerusalem, the next morning afforded Jesus and the disciples a short mile or so walk as they headed east back into Jerusalem. One can only imagine the heaviness of His heart as He made His way back after witnessing the insane practice of money changing at His Father’s house. While on His way He couldn’t help but take notice of a nonproducing fig tree…

Ensign, ‘THE BOOK OF MORMON: THE GREAT PURVEYOR OF THE SAVIOR’S PEACE,’ January 2008; “Each year, often at Easter and Christmastime, news magazines across the world ask the questions: Who was Jesus Christ? Did He live? Are the writings in the Bible authentic? … Yet we know that the Bible is correct. Mormon declared, “This [the Book of Mormon] is written for the intent that ye may believe that [the Bible]” (Mormon 7:9).” – Neil L. Andersen

November 8 — Trusting in Religion with No Absolutes. Dan. 10:5-6; “Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: 6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.”

Rev. 1:13-16; “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.” (more…)

LDS Contradictions: BoM Says Law Doesn’t Save; Mormonism Says It Does

Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”.

 Today we’re looking at simple comparisons of works, v. grace.

Our objective in doing so is for Christians to have the tools/resources to share the truth with a Mormon they might know.

If you’re LDS, we humbly ask you look over the evidence given, and ask yourself if God would really send so many conflicting messages to you. We promise beloved, this isn’t how the God of the Bible operates!

Please, pray for Mormons to know the difference, and for Jesus to intervene!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

1 Cor. 1:18

LDS Contradictions: The Sin of Adam and Eve 

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 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 3:23-24 “Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

1 Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”.

One of the biggest tragedies of Mormonism can be found in their doctrines about the Fall of mankind. The word ambiguity doesn’t come close to describing how contradictory their beliefs are on this topic. We pray that all Christians will take the time to share truth with a Mormon, and tell them of the love you have for Jesus! (more…)

March 27 – Joseph Smith Stronger Than Samson? Judges 16:30 tells us about the final act of Samson’s strength the Lord God supplied him with; there’s no question that no one lived as Samson did. “And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life”.

As an FYI, in updating some of our articles, I was reminded of this one that’s always been one of my favs. We pray members of the Church will take notice as they build their to-do lists during the holidays.

Jesus is the Only Way

By Melissa Grimes

      I recently come upon this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley:

 “Just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men, and in so doing became our Savior, even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple, become as saviors to those on the other side who have no means of advancing unless something is done in their behalf by those on earth” (“Closing Remarks,” Ensign, November 2004, 105).

     The idea that we have the power to save someone, in the eternal sense is blasphemy. We don’t have the power to do that, only Jesus does. You don’t need someone to do Masonic temple rituals for you in the LDS temple.

November 5 – Wrong Name for Jesus in 559 BC.  Daniel 9:25 “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.”
