 “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

While gathering notes for this article I was listening to praise music, and the song listed above repeated itself. It obviously caught my attention, thus its inclusion here!

The hymn serves as a good reminder of how we’re incapable of fulfilling God’s requirements for salvation! This upcoming holiday is an ever present reminder of how grateful I am for His mercy upon me.

Today we’re looking at three talks, and providing short quotes from each. Sadly, the quotes earned a place in our next installment, ‘Worst of the Worst’ list. Sigh…

Please note the numbering system we’ve used here is purely ours, and doesn’t reflect which order their talks were given.

The Kingdom of God, Pt. 1, No. 2, p. 4 “The Godhead consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Father is a material being… The substance of his person occupies space the same as other matter. It has solidity, length, breadth, and thickness, like all other matter. The elementary materials of his body are not susceptible of occupying, at the same time, the same identical space with other matter. The substance of his person, like other matter, cannot be in two places at the same instant. It also requires time for him to transport himself from place to place. It matters not how great the velocity of his movements, time is an essential ingredient to all motion, whether rapid or slow.” – Orson Pratt, 1848 (more…)

April 11 — Serving the Lord. 1 Chronicles 28:9; “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.” (more…)

 Conference Report, April 1943, p. 39 “These are trying days, in which Satan rages, at home and abroad, hard days, evil and ugly days. We stand helpless as it seems before them. We need help. We need strength. We need guidance. Perhaps if we would do our work in behalf of those of the unseen world who hunger and pray for the work we can do for them, the unseen world would in return give us help in this day of our urgent need. There are more in the other world than there are here. There is more power and strength there than we have upon this earth. We have but a trifle, and that trifle is taken from the immeasurable power of God.” — John A. Widtsoe

April 5  — Blood of the Covenant. Hebrews 9:12-14; “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 26:302 “…the Apostle Paul makes this declaration: “For to this end Christ both died and rose, and revived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.”

So it is with the Prophet Joseph Smith. He has gone before with the keys of this dispensation, after having lived and conferred them upon the authorities of the Church, even all that was necessary until he shall come again to build up this kingdom preparatory to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He with others are helping to carry out the great work of the redemption of the dead. And this part of the work we are called upon to perform in the temples. To be baptized for them, to be confirmed for them, and to perform all those holy ordinances for your righteous dead, for your worthy ancestry, which you have done or shall do for yourselves, makes you to become saviors upon Mount Zion.” — Franklin D. Richards, Provo, August 30, 1885 (more…)

Our Search for Happiness—An Invitation to Understand the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, p. 14 “…our belief in Christ is not passive. We believe that He and our Heavenly Father continue to minister to mankind today through inspiration and revelation. The leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints function under His divine direction just as the early apostles and prophets did when His Church was fully upon the earth. Ours is an active, vibrant faith dedicated to serving the Lord and doing the things He would do if He were walking among us. As we do His will we feel His spirit, a peaceful, comforting presence that warms our souls with courage and faith and draws us ever closer to Him. And as we draw closer to Him, we learn to love Him and our Eternal Father, and we find ourselves showing our love for them by keeping their commandments—which helps us to become more like them.

Focus on the Prince of Peace (more…)

Journal of Discourses 5:71 “The sun, moon, and stars are the representatives of the final homes of the departed dead, if not their real homes. … Here are homes for all grades of spirits, from the faithful martyr to Christ’s kingdom and Gospel, whose glory is represented by the sun in the firmament, to the wicked tare, who will be sent away into outer darkness, upon some planet destined to roll in endless night.” — Orson Hyde, Great Salt Lake City, March 8, 1857 (more…)

Flabbergasted … “to overcome with surprise and bewilderment; astound”

That verb is the only way to describe my reaction to the Church’s News publication Melissa alerted me to earlier this week.

With utter disbelief I read over the official news release when LDS Apostle Dallin Oaks told a group of young people to basically bury their heads in the sand.

Every time I think I won’t be surprised anymore by what the Church says, I am proven wrong yet again.

This time around my heart absolutely sank as I read over the poor direction this man gave to young LDS members who are obviously finding unfavorable info on church history. (more…)
