‘And these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.’ Acts 17:11

 It goes without saying all of the doctrinal teachings put out by the LDS Church falls way short of biblical accuracy. Today’s example is no exception, and compounding their heresy is a devotional they produced in January 2019 at the BYU Hawaii Campus.

For the sake of time and space, we’re looking at excerpts from this devotional, given by LDS Apostle Dale Renlund and his wife, Ruth. To see the full video and transcript, see Worldwide Devotional, ‘Doubt Not, but Be Believing,’ January 2019.

The Renlunds began their devotional with portraying what it’d be like if you were stranded without a boat out in the ocean. Once rescued, they said, you realize the water your rescuers provided wasn’t the Perrier you prefer, nor did they have the upscale crackers to go along with your Perrier.

The segue was a stern reminder for young LDS adults to be careful of the resources from where they retrieve info when/if they have questions about the Church.

There were two issues that caught my attention in this devotional. (more…)

“A missionary is someone sent by Jesus Christ just as He was sent by God. The great controlling factor is not the needs of people, but the command of Jesus. The source of our inspiration in our service for God is behind us, not ahead of us. The tendency today is to put the inspiration out in front— to sweep everything together in front of us and make it conform to our definition of success. But in the New Testament the inspiration is put behind us, and is the Lord Jesus Himself. The goal is to be true to Him— to carry out His plans.

Personal attachment to the Lord Jesus and to His perspective is the one thing that must not be overlooked. In missionary work the great danger is that God’s call will be replaced by the needs of the people, to the point that human sympathy for those needs will absolutely overwhelm the meaning of being sent by Jesus. The needs are so enormous, and the conditions so difficult, that every power of the mind falters and fails…” ~ Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, ‘What is a Missionary’, October 26 

Gone are the days when LDS missionaries were told ‘I’d rather you come home in a casket, than come home early’. In an effort to hold tight to that which isn’t theirs, the Church is throwing out all kinds of ideas to keep the younger generation from leaving the fold.

A new missionary program announced by the LDS Newsroom this week has basically rewritten their definition of what constitutes a missionary. It’s become painfully obvious they’re throwing anything at  the wall hoping something will stick… (more…)

Today we’re looking at a couple of the talks given at General Conference in April 2018.

Before we begin…first things first…

The numbers we’ve allotted to each talk is purely for our own references in the series, and isn’t meant to describe the order in which each talk was given at conference. We’ve noticed in past articles Mormons are getting hung up on peripheral things, instead of focusing on the subject matter at hand.

2 Thessalonians 2:9  ‘Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders’.

Here we are another year older, and hopefully walking closer to the Lord than ever before! One thing is certain, the directives of the Church are still spinning their wheels, and have gone nowhere fast in their walk with Jesus. Their main objective was to elevate Joseph Smith, while completely ignoring God’s warning to us in His precious word.

Some of the talks given this year seem to be reruns of the past, and those on the receiving end have once again gained nothing.

We’re highlighting 3-4 talk summaries of the Mormon General Authorities in each of our posts this week for the express purpose of bringing attention to the need of prayer from the body of Christ.

We feel that while these talks are still fresh in the minds of the Mormon people, we as Christians can use them as witnessing tools to share with the Mormons we know and love. We’ve pulled a few of the most important things from each talk. Here we go!
