 April 18 – By their fruits. Matt. 7:20-23; “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

The Church of Jesus  Christ of Latter-day Saints has seen its fair share of changes throughout time.

We’ve seen prophets who were all but silent in their tenure, which of course means Joe Smith and Brigham Young who were both endowed with mouths like no others.

We’ve also seen LDS prophets who barely made a peep. The one in charge today, (Russell Nelson), is anything but quiet.

Mr. Nelson’s priorities are shaping up to be quite the scene. He seems to be hung up on everyone using the name of the Church properly. This scenario began last year and has continued on through 2019.

Last year we also saw a dissolution of the Visiting Teaching Messages, and the rearrangement of their priesthood. This year they’re backtracking on excluding kids of gay people, and now we’re witnessing record numbers of people leaving. The first thing that came to mind was, ‘oops’. Apparently the Mormon god didn’t foresee the ramifications of what it’d mean to exclude innocent children from his kingdom.

This is what happens when you try to hide evil. Eventually truth prevails.

Here are the numbers for 2019. As you’ll see, the only news that remained the same was the downward trend of their ‘inspired works’.

Above all else, please, pray that those who are actively involved, will stand up, walk out, and accept the Jesus of the Bible as their true Savior!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

October 31 – Mormon definition of apostasy. Ephesians 4:11-14; “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  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.”

October 30 –The itching ears of Mormons. 2 Timothy 4:2-4; “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

It’s no secret that Mormonism is completely different from Biblical Christianity. One of the ways Mormons are able to convince people their religion is the “one true church” is to create doubt in your mind about God, and His word.

The other day I came across an article titled ‘51 Questions that might lead you to Mormonism’. In the article, the author begins by explaining that when he was 20 he wasn’t finding happiness in his current interests. A couple of friends encouraged him to check out Mormonism, and then determine for himself if it’s doctrines were true.

We receive countless e-mails and phone calls on a daily basis asking us how to witness to a friend or loved one in Mormonism.  While I’ve numbered the tips below for witnessing it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re in order of importance.

With that said, it’s important to remember everything listed will be a totally new experience to the Mormon.  When I converted to Christianity I was a few months shy of my thirtieth birthday, and quickly learned every single thing I had known up until that time, was a lie.

Our new and updated version of ‘How to Witness to a Mormon’ is a result of PowerPoint presentations given at churches. The majority of it comes from copious note taking while listening to, and watching dozens of audio, and video tapes Dr. Walter Martin (1928-1969) produced during his long, and industrious career.

To say those working in the counter-cult movement owes a debt of gratitude for his work, would not be an overstatement whatsoever. Many have heralded him as the father of the counter-cult movement.

One comment he made always gives me pause, and has reminded me on a number of occasions to be dilegent in witnessing to those who don’t know our Lord.

‘The cults are the unpaid bills of the body of Christ.’

We’re listing the same first 12 points from our presentations, and 20 helps for friends and loved ones, thereafter.

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

pbs-newshourThe other day I came across an article on PBS.org written by a man who shares his experience in converting from Catholicism to Mormonism. In summary, he says that he didn’t choose Mormonism at first, but eventually it chose him. He states that deciding to leave the religion he knew for the Mormon Church was result of his parent’s conversion, a decision he said he accepted without any complaints. Later, however, he realized that he couldn’t continue to rely on someone else’s faith and spiritual experiences, these were things he had to discover for himself.

In his closing remarks, he states “I am a Mormon”, a statement I can recall saying many times when I was asked about my faith, or religion. As a Mormon, my identity was in the Church. My mind, my heart, my soul, my whole being belonged to the Church. Anytime I was faced with a new idea, or situation I always thought, “what would the Church have me do”.

2 Kings 17:16; “And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.”

The Occult in Mormonism and the Life of Joseph SmithThe very foundation of Mormonism is a deliberate, not to mention brazen, show of the many tentacles of the Occult at its best. Therefore, it goes without saying the latter issue must be acknowledged if we’re to provide an honest picture of the former.

It’s virtually impossible to discuss Mormonism without acknowledging the cultic practices of Joseph Smith. For this reason, we’ve compiled a list of the more common paraphernalia he and his family used, upon which, the Mormon Church is built.

Mormon Decisions 10Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith, (2011), Chapter 27: ‘Beware the Bitter Fruits of Apostasy,’ pp. 315–26; joseph smith 1“There is a superior intelligence bestowed upon such as obey the Gospel with full purpose of heart, which, if sinned against, the apostate is left naked and destitute of the Spirit of God, and he is, in truth, nigh unto cursing, and his end is to be burned. When once that light which was in them is taken from them they become as much darkened as they were previously enlightened, and then, no marvel, if all their power should be enlisted against the truth, and they, Judas-like, seek the destruction of those who were their greatest benefactors.”

Mormon Decisions 10New Era, ‘The Temple What It Means To You,’ April 1993;

“Temple ordinances are valid for eternity…

One sweet LDS girl was asked by her father to postpone her marriage in the temple so he could provide a lavish wedding in a large church that all his friends could attend. She said, “Daddy, I can’t do as you ask. I have seen how you and Mom have loved each other, and yet you have not married in the temple. I made up my mind as a little girl that I would be married to my husband for eternity and not just for this life. You have had my whole lifetime to prepare to go to the temple with me, and you have not done so. I’m sorry, but I must do what I believe to be right.”…

Glenn Beck peddles David Barton’s rewrite of the NASB to share a Holy America and make some quick bucks

Ed Decker

Glenn BeckAfter hearing Glenn Beck promoting a special kind of bible, I skimmed through the numerous websites promoting the Founders’ Bible and the ministry of David Barton, Glenn Beck’s token Christian Pastor.  The Bible is more a declaration of the holiness of the United Sates of America than a true study bible.

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Personal Priesthood Responsibility”, November 2003, pg 44; “To bear the priesthood means you have a personal responsibility to magnify your calling. Let each opportunity to serve help to develop your power in the priesthood. In your personal grooming, follow the example of the living prophets. Doing so gives silent expression that you truly comprehend the importance of “the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God.” –

mailbagHere are the latest e-mails from Mormons who write to us!  We’re posting these so you can come alongside us and pray for them as well.  They’ve all come in via the site and blog.

Above all else please know we’re not here to bash the Mormon people or to ridicule them. Our hearts are broken that they believe the lies of the evil one and pray daily they come to know the real Jesus!

Thanks for praying!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle
