2014-Mamertine_PrisonWhose blood paid for sins?   Psalms 21:1-7; “The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah. 3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. 4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever. 5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him. 6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance. 7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.”

2 Timothy 1:12; “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”

For all intents and purposes the activities of Joseph Smith, and early Mormonism are still in action today. All one has to do is check out their latest paper, or in this case, the Rolling Stone Magazine.

What seemed like a horror story from long ago, was lived out in real life this week. Think blood atonement…

2 Corinthians 6:17; “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”

Paul’s admonition to the true believers in the early church is our focus for today. We’re pleading with the Mormons to come out of the darkness, and into the light of God’s truth!

I was reminded again of the Church’s true agenda. Hide and don’t seek, but more on that in a moment…

I came across an interesting article on a couple of different ‘anti-Mormon’ websites who focused on an LDS lesson manual published in 1997; The Teachings of Brigham Young. The problem with the manual wasn’t so much on what it said, but what it didn’t say.

The following is an overview of what they’re teaching about the second prophet of Mormonism in their adult classes. The irony shan’t be missed considering there’s a university named on his behalf, yet their members aren’t afforded the necessary information to learn all there is about the man.

Philippians 4:8; “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

John D Lee sitting on his coffin before executionToday I received my daily e-mail from TodayinMormonHistory.com which served as another reminder of why I left the Church.

In the annals of LDS history lies a treasure trove of sermons the Church would love to have either disappear, or stay in the dark closet from which they were birthed. For the sake of truth, we’re pulling them from their dusty shelves as a grim reminder this church isn’t the family-oriented organization as seen on t.v.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 1:108-109; “If you want to know what to doBrigham Young with a thief that you may find stealing, I say kill him on the spot, and never suffer him to commit another iniquity. I will prove by my works whether I can mete out justice to such persons, or not. I would consider it just as much my duty to do that, as to baptize a man for the remission of his sins.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, May 8, 1853

Mormon Decisions 10Mormon Doctrine, p. 92; “From the days of Joseph Smith to the present, wicked and evilly‑disposed persons have fabricated false and slanderous stories to the effect that the Church, in the early days of this dispensation, engaged in a practice of blood atonement whereunder the blood ofbruce mcconkie apostates and others was shed by the Church as an atonement for their sins… there is not one historical instance of so‑called blood atonement in this dispensation, nor has there been one event or occurrence whatever, of any nature, from which the slightest inference arises that any such practice either existed or was taught…. But under certain circumstances there are some serious sins for which the cleansing of Christ does not operate, and the law of God is that men must then have their own blood shed to atone for their sins.” – Bruce R. McConkie
