1 John 2:29; “If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”

salt lake mormon temple 2Today we’re examining questionable comments (a-hem, lies) the LDS Church told in a commentary for one of their standard works; the Pearl of Great Price. The irony in this writing, and those of other LDS authorities couldn’t be richer, and the longer we looked, the worse it got. Please, don’t forget to pray for them!

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, April 2015, “Where Justice, Love, and Mercy Meet”; “I express my gratitude for the Atonement and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and acknowledge events in the divine plan of God that led up to and give meaning to the “love Jesus offers [us]”…Jeffrey Holland

We cannot fully comprehend the Atonement and Resurrection of Christ and we will not adequately appreciate the unique purpose of His birth or His death—in other words there is no way to truly celebrate Christmas or Easter—without understanding that there was an actual Adam and Eve who fell from Eden, with all the consequences that fall carried with it. …
