‘When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.’ John 19:30

 Two comments by Dallin Oaks at General Conference serve as a reminder the Church isn’t following the true Jesus of the Bible. Our reference today was retrieved this from the Church’s Facebook page on the weekend of General Conference. See Dallin Facebook Video, or ‘Trust in the Lord’ video and transcript, for more info.

“Today at general conference I discussed what we know about the spirit world. I also shared that we should be cautious to not speculate about things we do not know.

That comment is a heads up! Mr. Oaks should’ve taken his own advice, alas, he chose instead to ‘teach for doctrine the commandments of men’ as it says in Mark 7:7. (more…)

LDS First Presidency Message “We Believe in Being Chaste,” Ensign, Sept. 1981, 3 You will recall Alma’s teaching his son Corianton that unchastity is the most serious offense there is in the sight of God, except for murder or denying the Holy Ghost. (See Alma 39:5.) President Clark, in a conference address in October 1938, said: ‘Chastity is fundamental to our life and to our civilization. If the race becomes unchaste, it will perish. Immorality has been basic to the destruction of mighty nations of the past; it will bring to dust the mighty nations of the present. You young people, may I directly entreat you to be chaste. Please believe me when I say that chastity is worth more than life itself. This is the doctrine my parents taught me; it is truth. It is better to die chaste than to live unchaste. The salvation of your very souls is concerned in this.’ Now, my dear friends, we know there is nothing new in what we have said. These things are time-tested; they are true. To this we testify.” — Marion Romney (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:125-126 “Jesus … established his kingdom on the earth…. the kingdoms of this world made war against the kingdom of God, established eighteen centuries ago, and they prevailed against it, and the kingdom ceased to exist. … This is what we believe; and it is the sincere belief and faith of the Latter-day Saints that we are in that kingdom. It is true that our King is now absent: he is in the heavens. But we expect him again; we look for him and he will come in his own due time… in organizing this kingdom He has restored all the essential characteristics of His kingdom in its embryo, or its beginning: such as inspired men, inspired prophets, inspired leaders, called by revelation to act in different positions.” — Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, April 10, 1870 (more…)

General Conference, ‘Always Retain a Remission of Your Sins,’ Saturday Afternoon Session, April 2, 2016 “As members of the Lord’s restored Church, we are blessed both by our initial cleansing from sin associated with baptism and by the potential for an ongoing cleansing from sin made possible through the companionship and power of the Holy Ghost. …

… The act of partaking of the sacrament, in and of itself, does not remit sins. But as we prepare conscientiously and participate in this holy ordinance with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then the promise is that we may always have the Spirit of the Lord to be with us. And by the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost as our constant companion, we can always retain a remission of our sins.” — David A. Bednar (more…)

Journal of Discourses 24:38-45 “…we believe in marriage, we have opened the door in that direction, and we say to the sexes marry; but we close the door in the other direction, and say, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not seduce, defile, prostitute or lead astray innocent beings; if you do, and we had the power, we would punish you. …it was plain to be seen that nothing in that bill [Edmunds Bill] was designed to reach real vice, to strike down immorality; it was a blow at our religious practices.” — George Quayle Cannon, Salt Lake City, Sunday, June 25, 1882 (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…)

‘It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error.’ Adrian Rogers

Our topic today is about an article in the LDS Youth Magazine, Liahona, which came from a devotional talk their apostle Neil Anderson gave at BYU in September 2011. To read the article in full, see link below. Typically whenever we look at an article we use the entire thing, but not today!

Although Mr. Anderson’s article didn’t run any longer than others, its contents goes far beyond the amount of time and space we can allocate to all of it. As a result, we’ve pulled one quote from this thing showing why it falls way short of God’s standards. Here we go!

 Recently I saw the image to the left on a Mormon Facebook page.

I’ve looked for a link to verify that Mr. Bednar actually made this statement while he was in the Philippians, but haven’t found anything. While we don’t know if he actually said this, or if it’s just the opinion of the creator of the image, it sure gives us some insight into the thinking process of some Mormons.

I’ve added a link under ‘References’ for you to check out the Facebook page for yourselves.

Coming back to the statement in the picture, when I first read it I thought to myself, it’s not hard at all not being a Mormon.

Luke 18:11, 13; “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.”

 Mormon Today, ‘Elder Hales’ Advice on How to End Your Prayer Could Change Your Life’;  “When we end our prayers with “Thy will be done,” we are doing what the Savior did in the Garden of Gethsemane, for what we are saying is, “Whatever the test, whatever I’m to learn, I will always love Thee.” – Robert D. Hales
