“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”. Ephesians 4:14

 The April 2020 Liahona carried an enlightening article on how Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon.

It seems as if they threw caution to the wind, but held fast to the claim it was done through the ‘power of God’.

Here in part is what they said – (more…)

 Today we’re asking the question; Is the Church denouncing their beloved prophet?

“I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth…” —November 28, 1841

 Keep Smith’s words in mind as you read through the following info…

A report in the Salt Lake Trib last week is an example of how the Church tries to retro-engineer its own history. It also showed the endless egregious lies the Mormon Church encumbers itself with time and again.

The article referred to the Church’s latest problem as a ‘blunder’, with the ‘potential of setting back’ any progress made on the race issue. We’re not sure why anyone would think they’ve made progress, taking into account racist dogma is still couched in numerous places throughout their canon. (more…)

Liahona, ‘Come, Follow Me: BOOK OF MORMON,’ DECEMBER 30–JANUARY 5, 2020

“Introductory pages The Book of Mormon was written by many ancient prophets who recorded their words on different sets of metal plates. These records were later abridged to create the plates of Mormon, or the gold plates that Joseph Smith translated.

DISCUSSION Compared to all that could have been recorded on the gold plates, Mormon and others were inspired to choose only a small portion for the Book of Mormon (see Words of Mormon 1:5 and 3 Nephi 26:6). How can knowing this influence your perspective of the chapters we have today?” (more…)

Jude 1:3-4 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,  who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” (more…)

Leviticus 19:31 “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”

 Today we’re looking at a not so common phrase in the Bible the LDS Church believes is a prophecy about their Book of Mormon. The phrase ‘familiar spirit’ is in the Old Testament 17 times. All but two of those refer to witchcraft – the exceptions are Job 19:14 & Psalm 41:9.

The Church has on numerous occasions referred to Isaiah 29:4 as the fulfillment of Smith’s gospel being delivered by Moroni, who was supposedly a resurrected man-turned-angel, who lived c. 400 AD.

Isaiah 29:4 “And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.”

May 11 – Settling for a Lesser god. Heb. 7:24, 27-28; “But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.”
