This year, 2015, marks the 158th ‘anniversary’ of a tragedy in Utah history I’m sure Mormons would rather forget. If you’re unfamiliar with the event, you can read about it in an article on our front page you can access here. (more…)

August 24 – Luke 11:33; “No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 1:88-89 “…Brother [Ira] Ames has said that “‘Mormonism’ will progress.” If it does not, God will be dethroned, for when He undertakes to do anything, it will be done … “Mormonism” stands upon the eternal basis of omnipotence. Jehovah is the “Mormonism” of this people, their Priesthood and their power; and all who adhere to it, will, in the appointed day, come up into the presence of the King Eternal, and receive a crown of life.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, June 13, 1852 Also see Mormonism Research Ministry.

The following three LDS references show why Mormonism is not a Christian organization. Two of the quotes below are twisted plagiarisms of God’s word, and the third is a brazen contradiction of what Jesus proclaimed during His earthly ministry. (more…)

Luke 1:34-35 “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”

The excerpt below comes from the quarterly magazine, Dialogue, A Journal of Mormon Thought. Their articles reflect a side of Mormonism faithful members of the Church typically don’t read because it’s not ‘faith promoting’, and/or they simply don’t know about them.

I’m using the essay of David John Buerger for two reasons.

1.It’s a good example of how the Church retro-engineers their published articles.

2.It shows how the Church refuses to publish all sermons of their leaders, and holds onto them in their ‘archives collection’. Today’s example is case in point. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:213-214 “Can we devise any other means and plan of salvation? We cannot. Will we do away with the Bible? We will not; though the Christian world are actually coming to the point that they will dismiss the Bible from their schools; and by and by they will dismiss it from their pulpits…

They cannot abide the doctrine contained in the Old and New Testament, “and,” say they, “we must alter and change it; it does not suit our condition. It was not written for us; it was written for people in days of old …

We cannot find books of that edition; some that have been altered and changed are plentiful. I mean King James’ translation, and that is good enough for me; it will answer my purpose. But how is it with the Christian world? Will it answer theirs? If it will, why do they not abide by it? … They would do so if they were honest and their belief was sincere. And it will have to be so with them if ever they gain admittance into the kingdom of God, for in the Bible are the words of life and salvation.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 17, 1870 (more…)

What Happens After We Die? “What Do We Know about the Spirit World?

Where is the spirit world?
President Brigham Young (1801–77) taught that the spirits of those who once lived on earth remain around us on this earth, though we can’t see them.1

1.See Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Brigham Young (1997), 279. …

Can spirits in the spirit world see us?
Yes, when needed. President Joseph F. Smith (1838–1918) said that those in the spirit world can see us more clearly than we can see them and that “their solicitude for us and their love for us and their desire for our well being must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves.” 4

June 18 – Heb. 9:11-12; “But Christ being come and high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us”.

Witnessing Tip of the Day June 01June 8 – Every Spirit That Confesses. 1 John 4:2-3; “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

2 Corinthians 9:7; “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

Historical records of the LDS Church reveal a contradictory message still implemented today. From the days of Joe Smith who initially complained about the ‘whores of Babylon’ offering salvation for money, to the latest General Conference the narrative is the same.

Joe Smith’s fiery brimstone sermons rang out across upper New England seaboard right in the middle of the 2nd Great Awakening. He complained Christianity had turned corrupt in its doctrines, thereby necessitating a ‘restoration of all things’.

Mormon 8:32; “Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say: Come unto me, and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins.”

We’ve received a few requests in the past couple of weeks for LDS tithing quotes, so we decided we’d compile a few of them for a handy reference page! As you’ll see in the quotes below, the Church’s doctrines are ambiguity at its finest. Their doctrines were taken from the pages of those Smith condemned.

We’ll add to our list as time goes on, so check back often for updates!

For future reference, we’ll be placing this on the right sidebar.

April 16 – Philippians 2:5-7; “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God, But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”

Journal of Discourses 1:361; “If I had forty wives in the United States, they did not know it, and could not substantiate it, neither did I ask any lawyer, judge, or magistrate for them. I live above the law, and so do this people.” –– Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, August 1, 1852

Journal of Discourses 3:48; “If I am not to have the privilege of speaking of Saint and sinner when I please, tie up my mouth and let me go to the grave, for my work would be done. It was for this that they killed Joseph and Hyrum, it is for this that they wish to kill me and my brethren; we know their iniquity, and we will tell of it when the Spirit dictates…” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 4, 1855

Romans 1:24; “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves”.

God finally gave up on Pharaoh, just as He did with those in Paul’s day. We’re praying the Mormon people will take heed before it’s too late for them as well.

Today we’re looking at a sermon Brigham Young delivered where he claimed ‘father Adam’ married his daughter, Eve. We’ve inserted questions and observations throughout the text.

Journal of Discourses 16:167; “When Father Adam came to assist in organizing the earth out of the crude material that was found, an earth was made upon which the children of men could live. After the earth was prepared Father Adam came and stayed here, and there was a woman brought to him. Now I am telling you something that many of you know, it has been told to you, and the brethren and sisters should understand it.

Journal of Discourses 13:140; “I will say with regard to miracles, there is no such thing save to the ignorant—that is, there never was a result wrought out by God or by any of His creatures without there being a cause for it. There may be results, the causes of which we do not see or understand, and what we call miracles are no more than this—they are the results or effects of causes hidden from our understandings.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 11, 1869

On September 11, 1857, one hundred and twenty innocent, and unarmed men, women, and children were ambushed by blood-thirsty Mormons lying in wait for their intended victims.

In the end, only one man was brought to trial, and subsequently executed for the horrendous deed. John D. Lee became the unwitting fall guy for Brigham and his henchmen. Because of the power Brigham Young wielded in the territory, he came out unscathed from the ordeal, albeit, the Feds knew better while looking the other way.

Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve…”

Journal of Discourses 12:162; “We cannot now administer the further ordinances of God in the fullest sense of the word legally unto the people, neither shall we be able to do so until we have a temple built for that purpose. … We must be situated in local circumstances wherein we can efficiently administer in those ordinances of the house of God that cannot be administered to a people while they are scattered abroad among the nations of the wicked.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, February 16, 1868
