‘A faith that can’t be tested can’t be trusted.’ – Adrian Rogers

cross-of-christ General Conference, April 2004, “The Atonement: All for All”; “The Lord restored His gospel through Joseph Smith because there had been an apostasy. Since the fifth century, Christianity taught that Adam and Eve’s Fall was a tragic mistake, which led to the belief that humankind has an inherently evil nature. That view is wrong—not only about the Fall and human nature, but about the very purpose of life.” – Bruce C. Hafen

Introduction to the Gospel, p. 312; “…In the restoration, man was raised to the dignity which he had formerly known…Original sin and human depravity were done away with and in their place came again Jesus’ high regard for the dignity of man, the worth of every individual as a child of God, and great emphasis on man’s freedom and accompanying moral responsibility…in the Latter-day Saint teaching of salvation which reveals a fine balance between the grace of Deity and man’s individual merit.” – Lowell Bennion

1 Corinthians 1:18; “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”

Cross Oswald Chambers April 6Today’s post is based on a page from our websites, and Oswald Chamber’s ‘My Utmost for His Highest’ devotional for April 6, ‘The Collision of God and Sin’.

Before I begin, allow me to start off by stating this one subject (the cross) will bring me to my knees faster than anything I’ve ever known in this world. When I think of the totality of what our sweet Jesus went through, and the depravity of my sinful life, I’m left with nothing but adoration for the God I love so.

I’m not an eloquent enough orator to express my relief in knowing He’d allow me in His presence. The incarnate God who knew no sin, came here to earth specifically to ransom me – the dark girl from Utah.

cross 12Today’s post comes courtesy of an article I saw on LDS Living. I’m going to post a few highlights from the article here, and then ask questions as we go along. One of the reasons we’re highlighting this article is to provide an example of what the average Mormon thinks of non-Mormon events.

LDS Living, ‘Why Mormons Don’t Practice Ash Wednesday and Lent’

“In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint we honor, and celebrate the life of Christ. We do not observe Ash Wednesday as it was instituted by man. We believe that we should always be repenting of sins we commit, and by partaking of the Sacrament weekly, we believe that doing this not only renews all of our covenants we have made with God, but it is the only way to renew any of our covenants. …

New Era Article “Why We Do Missionary Work”

Part 1 – An Altar and a Sacrifice

I came across a speech given by Dallin Oaks which was then published in the New Era Magazine by the LDS Church and wanted to share it with our visitors.  There were several items of interest in this one speech, but for now we’re looking at just the first paragraph.  This topic warrants thousands of pages to be written, alas, the few things I have to say here is barely scratching the surface of all there is to say about Jesus, His death on the Cross and how our sins are atoned for.
