“The church is not the way to heaven; the church is the sign that points to heaven.” — Adrian Rogers

Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Hidden amongst the weeds of several talks at the LDS General Conferences you’ll find a handful of speeches reminding members they must stay true to covenants made to their god, aka, Mormonism. (more…)

General Conference, ‘The Book of Mormon: What Would Your Life Be Like without It?,’ October 2017 “I testify that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God. It contains the answers to life’s most compelling questions. It teaches the doctrine of Christ. It expands and clarifies many of the “plain and precious” truths that were lost through centuries of time and numerous translations of the Bible.

The Book of Mormon provides the fullest and most authoritative understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ to be found anywhere. …

The Book of Mormon affirms: The individual identity of Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ…” — Russell M. Nelson (more…)

Matthew 22:36-40 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

 Today we’re looking at an article in the latest New Era Magazine. As a reminder, the Church’s intended audience for this periodical is their youth group consisting of 12-18 yr old kids. To read the article in full, see New Era, ‘The True, Pure, and Simple Gospel of Jesus Christ (excerpts),’ May 2019.

The article was written by their apostle M. Russell Ballard and his focus was the Two Greatest Commandments – see biblical passage listed above. For the sake of time, we’re looking at one key item of interest. Ballard’s comment was couched in a lot of nondescript directives that’d be easy to look over, thus our pointing it out here. (more…)

March 22 — Who is your Savior? Isaiah 43:10-11 “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” (more…)

Revelation 21:14 “And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.”

Church News, ‘Inside the Quorum of the Twelve, the Divine Calling Apostles Share with the Missionaries,’ July 27. 2017 “Elder Gerrit W. Gong, a recently called Apostle, calls it “a privilege” to meet with the missionaries who share his responsibility to “represent and testify” of the Savior and His restored gospel. The Apostles and missionaries, he added, also testify of the prophetic call of Joseph Smith, whose name would be known, according to prophecy, “for good and evil.” … “The missionaries help fulfill that prophecy every day as they testify of the Savior and the Prophet Joseph Smith—and the work he has done with the Restoration.” (more…)

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I’ve prayed the verse listed above I don’t know how many times for the Mormon people. One thing is certain, I’ll keep praying it until the Lord comes, or calls me home. I so want for them to know Jesus!

The first thing they must do however, is to disencumber themselves from the lies like those we’re looking at today. Mr. Anderson’s talk at the General Conference is a classic example of how their leaders are like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The title of our post today was the subject of one of Henry Eyring’s speeches at General Conference this past weekend. We pulled this from the Salt Lake Tribune’s article on some of the Conference highlights. You can read the Trib’s entire article at God Picks Mormon Leaders and He Never Gets It Wrong Eyring Says.

Check out a couple of the questionable things he had to say this time. We’ll highlight the speeches of Uchtdorf, and other leaders in the upcoming few days. Here we go with Eyring’s thoughts!

2 Peter 1:20-21 “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

 Peppered throughout the voluminous works of Mormonism are oft used reminders to members their leaders are the ‘living oracles’ of God. These self proclamations are slathered with warnings not to stray from what God ‘hath said’, and the Church is the only repository for info on salvation.

 March 29 – Ephesians 4:11-14 shows us how the body of Christ operates.  It says; “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children being tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.

 General Conference, ‘Beware of False Prophets and False Teachers,’ October 1999; “I reiterate: there are false prophets and false teachers who have or at least claim to have membership in the Church. … they attempt to redefine the nature of the Godhead … False prophets and false teachers are those who arrogantly attempt to fashion new interpretations of the scriptures to demonstrate that these sacred texts should not be read as God’s words to His children but merely as the utterances of uninspired men, limited by their own prejudices and cultural biases. … They argue, therefore, that the scriptures require new interpretation and that they are uniquely qualified to offer that interpretation.” – M. Russell Ballard

flowers-cartoon-8This month’s message teaches us about the importance of eternal families, the role they will play in eternity, and touches on how The Fall made it all come together.

Mormons are all about the earthly, biological family we all have, and keeping those families intact throughout eternity. “Families are Forever” is one saying they like to use to reel people into the Church, because if the Church is all about the family then it must be approved of by God, right?

Jude 1:24-25 “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”

Three Meetings with a LDS General Authority, 2012- 2013 by Grant Palmer

grantpalmerA couple of years ago I heard rumors of each Mormon apostle receiving a million bucks for signing on to become an apostle. The stipulation was he’d have to always do what he’s told, and keep mum about the transaction.

flowers-cartoon-8Questions for Today:

Which is of greater worth; giving birth, or Blood of Christ?

How many babies are equivalent to Jesus’ spilt blood?

Before we begin this month’s Visiting Teaching Message we wanted to address a comment we received from a visitor (presumably LDS from the tone), and let him/her know we’ve been praying for them, and will continue to do so! The March 2016 VT Message must’ve struck a nerve because it was the 3rd time ‘Anonymous’ has written in response to our article.

salt lake mormon temple 2 Journal of Discourses 21:201; “…not only all the children of men, of all generations, and of all ages, were created spiritually in heaven, but that fish and fowls, and beast, and all animated things, having life, were first made spiritual in heaven… … We are also told in this inspired translation, that these living trees which we behold—for God has given life unto all things—had their spiritual existence in heaven before their temporal existence; every herb and every tree, before it was planted out on the earth, that is, the spiritual part of it … that which gives power to the vegetable to bring forth fruit after its likeness—the spiritual part existed in heaven. …

…We read about the earth’s dying, and that it shall be quickened again. What is it that will make the earth die? It will be the withdrawing of the spiritual portion from it, that which gives it life— …

On the seventh day he began the temporal portion. There was not yet a man to till the ground, “and the gods formed man from the dust of the ground, and took his spirit—that is the man’s spirit—and put it into him and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul…” – Orson Pratt, Mount Pleasant, Utah, November 12, 1879

Romans 8:38-39; “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The following two recent talks given by apostles Russell Ballard, and Jeffrey Holland reveal the deep concern, if not panic, they’re facing when it comes to keeping members in their fold. The first talk was delivered to a group of CES Teachers who were attending a training seminar. (CES = Church Education System)

Wise People Don’t Use the Internet

M. Russell BallardBroadcast, ‘The Opportunities and Responsibilities of CES Teachers in the 21st Century,’ February 26, 2016; “For you to understand the doctrinal and historical content and context of the scriptures and our history, you will need to study from the “best books,” as the Lord directed. The “best books” include the scriptures, the teachings of modern prophets and apostles, and the best LDS scholarship available. …  Teach them [students] about the challenges they face when relying upon the Internet to answer questions of eternal significance. Remind them that James did not say, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him Google!”8

Wise people do not rely on the Internet to diagnose…life-threatening challenges. Instead, they seek out health experts, those trained and licensed…Even then, prudent people seek a second opinion. …When something has the potential to threaten our spiritual life, our most precious family relationships, and our membership in the kingdom, we should find thoughtful and faithful Church leaders to help us.” – M. Russell Ballard

Philippians 3:7-10; “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.”

General Conference April 2016 3Yesterday we looked at three of the talks given at General Conference this past weekend, and today we’re taking a look at three others. Oh, how I wish people in this church would open their hearts to the real Jesus of the Bible and here’s why…

That I May Know Him…

Mormonism doesn’t  just break the ties of family members, but they try to subvert any relationship between our sweet Jesus, and mankind as well. For those who aren’t aware, leaving the Church has a high price to pay, and what they do to families is like a train wreck waiting to happen. It’s certainly a hard row to hoe in the beginning, but our Lord always provides by sending mature Christians into our lives, and comfort through His word.

Isaiah 5:20-21; “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!  21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!”


General Conference April 2016 3
For the next couple of days we’re taking a look at a few of the summaries for the talks given at the General Conference from this past weekend April 2-3, 2016. As is always the case, there were no revelations from the Church. One would think this might happen on occasion since they’re pretty resolute on the theory they must have prophets to reveal new things from their god.

Each of the three talks we looked at here are nothing short of deplorable, thus limiting ourselves to just a few of them here. I still haven’t decided which one is worse…

the-first-presidencylds_conference_april_2010When I came upon the Church’s Easter message, I had to shake my head at the number of inconsistencies they plastered on their website. Today we’re taking a look at what they tried to tell people about Jesus. And for Easter Holy Week of all times…good grief! We’ll be listing each name title they used and define them in a proper manner so there won’t be any confusion!

First Presidency Easter Message, March 17, 2016; “Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Jehovah of the Old Testament, and the Messiah of the New Testament. He died and was resurrected, and He lives in glory with our Eternal Father.
