 Warning for those contemplating membership in the Mormon Church!

Question of the Day:

What happens to people who die before having had a chance to hear the gospel?

Today we’re looking over LDS prophecies concerning the fate of mankind; LDS, and otherwise.

As we look over LDS canon, we can clearly see how Smith’s directives evolved over time. In the beginning stages of his preaching, the fate of those who didn’t fully obey the gospel was clearly defined. His signature canon, the Book of Mormon published in 1830, declared there are no 2nd chances. His chronic contradictions were implemented to create confusion, not peace.

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

Joseph Smith made an incredible claim about his version of the gospel no one should overlook. We can read his so-called prophecy about the Book of Mormon in his other work, the Doctrine and Covenants.

Doctrine and Covenants 20:9 “Which contains a record of a fallen people, and the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles and to the Jews also”.

Today our question is this — (more…)

Leviticus 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord.”

Last week we came across an interesting article on Reddit where someone posted a request for info on all the definitions for tithing the Church has used over the years.

He listed a few examples from LDS canon, and offered a small monetary reward if someone could add to his list. As you might imagine, the Church’s definition of tithes is all over the board. Today we’re comparing part of that list with God’s word.

One thing is certain. The Church has gone to great extremes in confusing its membership. Check out what they’ve said – (more…)

Journal of Discourses 16:156 “And when the Lord was about to have the Book of Covenants given to the world it was thought wisdom, in consequence of the persecutions of our enemies in Kirtland and some of the regions around, that some of the names should be changed, and Joseph was called Baurak Ale, which was a Hebrew word; meaning God bless you.” – Orson Pratt, Ogden, August 16, 1873 (more…)

March 27 – Judges 16:30 tells us about the final act of Samson’s strength the Lord God had supplied him with; there is no question no one lived as Samson did. “And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life”.

February 6 – Exaltation. Paul told us in 2 Thess. 2:4-8 those who exalts himself to sit on the throne of God would be revealed as a man of sin. It’s the man of wickedness who does this and then the Lord will “consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming”.

Take the Gospel to All Men and Nations

Doctrine and Covenants 42:58; “And I give unto you a commandment that then ye shall teach them unto all men; for they shall be taught unto all nations, kindreds, tongues and people.” – Revelation given to Joseph Smith, at Kirtland, Ohio, February 9 and 23, 1831.

Freeing Slaves Endangers Female Chastity 

Messenger and Advocate, Vol. 2, No. 7, pp 289, 300, April 1836; “I  am aware, that many who profess to preach the gospel, complain against their brethren of the same faith, who reside in the south, and are ready to withdraw the hand of fellowship because they will not renounce the principle of slavery and raise their voice against every thing of the kind. This must be a tender point, and one which should call forth the candid reflection of all men, and especially before they advance in an opposition calculated to lay waste the fair States of the South, and set loose, upon the world a community of people who might peradventure, overrun our country and violate the most sacred principles of human society, – chastity and virtue.” – Joseph Smith
