November 19 — Origin and Destiny of Holy Spirit Unknown Haggai 2:6-9; “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”

A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, 91; “Thus we see why the Lord gave two conflicting commandments—one to become mortal and have children, the other to not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil out of which mortality and children and death would result. The issue is one of choosing between opposites. Adam must choose to become mortal so he could have children, on the one hand; on the other hand, he must choose to remain forever in the garden in a state of innocence. He chose to partake of the forbidden fruit so that the purposes of God might be accomplished by providing a probationary estate for his spirit children. Adam must needs fall so that he would know good from evil, virtue from vice, righteousness from wickedness. He could not have done this without breaking a law and becoming subject to sin. He chose the Lord’s way; there was no other way whereby salvation might come unto the children of men.” – Bruce R. McConkie, 1985

Matthew 15:9; “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Today we’re asking how the Church uses this all important name. We’re looking at Mormon Doctrine, written by Bruce McConkie, once a leading authority in the LDS Church.

Mormon Doctrine Bruce McConkieMormon Doctrine, p. 343; “See CHRIST, VIRGIN BIRTH. Christ is Immanuel, Emmanuel the King Immanuel (D. & C. 128:22), signifying literally, God is with us. This designation used by Isaiah in a great Messianic prophecy (Isa. 7:14), bruce mcconkiealluded to by Micah as referring to the birth of our Lord (Mic. 5:3), and specifically named by Matthew as having reference to the Virgin Birth (Matt. 1:18-25), signifies that Christ as God would be born into mortality of a virgin and would be with men to save and redeem them.”

Note: the reference for the link above comes from the online version of Mormon Doctrine, p. 269. Gospelink, and other versions of Mormon Doctrine list ‘Immanuel’ on p. 343.

Mormon Decisions 10Mormon Doctrine, p. 92; “From the days of Joseph Smith to the present, wicked and evilly‑disposed persons have fabricated false and slanderous stories to the effect that the Church, in the early days of this dispensation, engaged in a practice of blood atonement whereunder the blood ofbruce mcconkie apostates and others was shed by the Church as an atonement for their sins… there is not one historical instance of so‑called blood atonement in this dispensation, nor has there been one event or occurrence whatever, of any nature, from which the slightest inference arises that any such practice either existed or was taught…. But under certain circumstances there are some serious sins for which the cleansing of Christ does not operate, and the law of God is that men must then have their own blood shed to atone for their sins.” – Bruce R. McConkie
