 On lds.org we noticed they’ve created their own version of an Advent Calendar. You can download the calendar by following the link below.

The introduction to the calendar reads –

“Each Christmas, we celebrate the life of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. By following His teachings, we let his light shine—in our lives and in the lives of others. This year, use this calendar for inspiration as you plan your Christmas activities to help #LightTheWorld by serving those in need.”

January2January 6 – 1 Chronicles 16:23-26; “Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. 24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. 25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.”

Holidays Celebrated by the Mormons

     We receive a lot of requests asking if Mormons celebrate Easter, birthdays and other holidays that most Christians observe.  When I was in the Mormon Church it didn’t occur to me that by not observing things like Good Friday would be looked upon as strange by those outside of our clan.  Now that I’m a Christian I look with eager anticipation for Holy Week to come around every year.  It’s hard to believe that I used to be so ignorant about such important items in life.

     Mormons observe all holidays and birthdays that everyone else does in America.  With the exception of Easter day they do not celebrate any days during Holy Week.  They also don’t observe Ash Wednesday, Pentecost, Lent or Passover.

      As my experience in the Christian lifestyle grew I came to realize just how empty my spiritual life was as a Mormon and how grateful I am now to the Lord for His awesome gift of salvation!

     Please come alongside us to lift these dear people up in prayer for God to open their hearts and eyes to accept His free gift of love and salvation!

 With Love in Christ

December 25 – Matthew 1:21; “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Yesterday we saw that the Mormons believe Jesus was born in Jerusalem.  Jerusalem and Bethlehem are not suburbs of each other.  The Mormon will try to tell you otherwise, so don’t be fooled my friend!  Find at least five other names of Jesus and share them with their meanings to the Mormon in your life.  This will be the best Christmas gift they’ll ever receive!  

There’s not a Mormon alive who doesn’t believe they are the ones that save the non-Mormon. 

 Thus, baptizing for the dead, as well as their extensive missionary programs.

“Let us Latter-day Saints, called to be saviors of men called to be saviors of the world, called to be saviors to introduce that which will save mankind and bring them up from their lowest state into a condition where they will be fit to hold converse with Deity. . . . (CR, April 1918, pp. 16, 18, 22.)”  Roy W. Doxey, comp., Latter-day Prophets and the Doctrine and Covenants, 3: 407.
