“The end of all activity in the Church is to see that a man and a woman with their children are happy at home, sealed for eternity.” — Boyd K. Packer, 2015

Earlier this month we posted an article on a talk given by Dale Renlund who stated that LDS members should ask themselves if they’ve done enough. In his talk he mentioned another talk given by Boyd Packer in 2015.

Mr. Packer’s talk had two subject matters; the importance of ‘mating’, and the atonement of Christ. Over the next few days, we’ll look at some of the statements Mr. Packer made at that time. To be sure, his comments earned a spot in our next publication of ‘Worst of the Worst’. We looked at a small portion of his talk back when he originally gave it in 2015.

General Conference, ‘The Plan of Happiness’, April 2015 “The commandment to multiply and replenish the earth has never been rescinded. It is essential to the plan of redemption and is the source of human happiness. Through the righteous exercise of this power, we may come close to our Father in Heaven and experience a fulness of joy, even godhood. The power of procreation is not an incidental part of the plan; it is the plan of happiness; it is the key to happiness. (more…)

Galatians 2:16 “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

An article in the March issue of Ensign gave members a laundry list of mandates for true salvation. Their list of manmade works for salvation served as a stark reminder for us as Christians to always be on our knees for these dear people!

The MantMormon Decisions 10le Is Far, Far Greater Than the Intellect, pp 4-5; “The Lord made it very clear that some things are to be taught selectively, and some things are to be given only to those who are worthy…One who chooses to follow the tenets of his profession, regardless of how they may injure the Church or destroy the faith of those not ready for ‘advanced history’, is himself in spiritual jeopardy. If that one is a member of the Church, he has broken his covenants and will be held accountable.” – Boyd K. Packer

Angel of Light

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Candle of the Lord”, January 1983; “We Can Be Deceived. Be ever on guard lest you be deceived by inspiration from an unworthy source. You can be given false spiritual messages. There are counterfeit spirits just as there are counterfeit angels. (See Moro. 7:17.) Be careful lest you be deceived, for the devil may come disguised as an angel of light.

salt lake mormon temple 2The Law and the Light,” Book of Mormon Symposium, BYU, October 30, 1988; “I declare the gospel to be both true and inclusive of every true element of any philosophy, indeed the gospel is a fulness of the truth in all of them…After the transformation caused by the Fall, bodies of flesh and bone and blood (unlike our spirit bodies), would not endure forever. Somehow the ingredient blood carried with it a limit to life. It was as though a clock were set and a time given. Thereafter, all living things moved inexorably toward mortal or temporal death. Temporal, I repeat, means temporary.” – Boyd K. Packer

Ensign, Dec. 1971, p. 72).”

Worshiping God and Becoming a god 

“The Pattern of Our Parentage,” Ensign, Nov. 1984, p. 69; “The Father is the one true God. This thing is certain: no one will ever ascend above Him; no one will ever replace Him. Nor will anything ever change the relationship that we, His literal offspring, have with Him. He is Eloheim, the Father. He is God. Of Him there is only one. We revere our Father and our God; we worship Him.

There is only one Christ, one Redeemer. We accept the divinity of the Only Begotten Son of God in the flesh. We accept the promise that we may become joint heirs with Him.” – Boyd K. Packer

Truth

Boyd Packer has been a source of quotes for us here at LAM because of the contradictory and heretical teachings that come from his mouth while standing at a pulpit.  And this time his teachings have proven themselves to be no different than other times.

On Sunday evening, November 6, 2011 the Deseret News published an article highlighting the speech he gave to an audience of young LDS members eager to hear some prophetic and wisdom filled words from the Mormon apostle.
