Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, Second Day Morning Session, October 1916: p 42-43; “Christianity, as it is known in the world today, has fallen far short of the accomplishment of what might have been expected of it. It has failed in establishing those principles which Christ taught among the children of men… A false doctrine is a corrupt doctrine; a false religion is a corrupt religion; a false teacher is a corrupt teacher. Any man who teaches a false doctrine, who believes in and practices and teaches a false religion is a corrupt professor, because he teaches that which is impure and not true. That is the trouble with Christianity today. It is not true…that which is known as Christianity, is the falsest of all religions in the world.” – Hyrum M. Smith

About nineteen years ago God called me to the ministry of Mormons. For the most part since that time I’ve not paid a lot of attention to all the false teachers out there as Joseph Smith and company keeps me busy enough without focusing upon others.

However, today a news clip caught my attention causing me to wonder why people fall for such dangerous schemes all because somebody told them they could do the unreasonable if they “unleashed their power within”.

Seer is Greater than a Prophet (Oh how wonderful Joseph Smith is!)

Mosiah 8:17; “But a seer can know of things which are past, and also of things which are to come, and by them shall all things be revealed, or, rather, shall secret things be made manifest, and hidden things shall come to light, and things which are not known shall be made known by them, and also things shall be made known by them which otherwise could not be known.”

Most Correct Book

History of the Church, vol. 4:461;The Prophet’s Estimate of the Book of Mormon.

Sunday, 28, 1841.—I spent the day in the council with the Twelve Apostles at the house of President Young, conversing with them upon a variety of subjects. Brother Joseph Fielding was present, having been absent four years on a mission to England. I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.”

Defending Joseph Smith

Thinking back to all the years I was totally devoted to Joseph Smith and then to the years I began questioning reminded me of how ambiguous I was before I accepted the truth.  Leaving Mormonism isn’t easy for anyone.

Many times jobs, homes and families are lost or ripped apart when we follow Jesus exclusively, but the rewards far outweigh the temporal losses and are minute in comparison to what we’ve gained not only eternally, but for the here and now.
