We posted the following article in 2015, but they still haven’t denounced this idolatrous teaching!

If you’re LDS, is this what you expect from your leaders?

Daily Journal of Abraham H. Cannon, April 15, 1894, v. 18, p. 70; “Father [George Q. Cannon] now spoke of the unfortunate condition of the people at present in regard to marriage…. ‘I believe in concubinage, or some plan whereby men and women can live together under sacred ordinances and vows until they can be married…. such a condition would have to be kept secret, until the laws of our government change to permit the holy order of wedlock which God has revealed, which will undoubtedly occur at no distant day, in order to correct the social evil….’

– Pres. Snow. ‘I have no doubt but concubinage will yet be practiced in this church, but I had not thought of it in this connection. When the nations are troubled good women will come here for safety and blessing, and men will accept them as concubines.’
– Pres. Woodruff: ‘If men enter into some practice of this character to raise a righteous posterity, they will be justified in it…’” (more…)

One important thing to keep in mind when understanding Mormon doctrine: pay attention to little details.

The Mormon Church teaches its members they’ll become kings and queens for God, but the Bible says no such thing.

Revelation 5:10 “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”

Today we’re looking at a couple of the talks given at General Conference in April 2018.

Before we begin…first things first…

The numbers we’ve allotted to each talk is purely for our own references in the series, and isn’t meant to describe the order in which each talk was given at conference. We’ve noticed in past articles Mormons are getting hung up on peripheral things, instead of focusing on the subject matter at hand.

The message for this month’s Visiting Teaching Lesson was called, ‘Pray for Each Sister by Name’. Click on link to read it in full.

The object of this lesson is for members to know the person they’re assigned to on a deeper level, rather than a surface knowledge of the one they’re caring for in their visits.

While that sounds admirable, we have to take into consideration what their leaders added to the fray…sigh…as you’ll see, it becomes quite laborious, and far from truth.

An article in the Salt Lake Tribune on October 14, 2017 provided some interesting info on the yearly salaries of Church leaders in SLC.

$120,000 per person across the board, plus housing. For some in leadership, housing includes a $1m+ apartment suite in downtown SLC, and others are stipend  accordingly. The shocking thing about this is who exactly qualifies. If you believe it’s just the apostles, think again.

Proverbs 20:7; “The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.”

Liahona April 2016After reading some of the messages produced by the Church, there are times I have to shake my head and wonder why. Why do they tell the lies they do, and why don’t members call the leaders out on the lies…?

Today we’re looking at the latest First Presidency Message, ‘Prophecy and Personal Revelation,’ April 2016.

You can read the entire message in full at the link above. Upon a cursory glance in this month’s message, one will notice at least three problems straightaway.

LDSWhat the Church Teaches about the Bible in 2016

“…In 1979, after years of careful work under the direction of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, the Church salt lake mormon temple 2published a Latter-day Saint edition of the Bible. This edition of the Bible has the same text as the King James Version, but it includes special study aids, such as the Topical Guide, the Bible Dictionary, and footnotes referring to passages in other books of scripture and to excerpts from Joseph Smith’s translation of the Bible….

salt lake mormon temple 2Oh the tangled web they weave…

As time has waned on for the Church, they’ve made a strict practice of not giving heed to many of their past proclamations. In Mormonism, there are no hard and fast rules, and our example today is a classic display of how they operate.

Mormon Decisions 10History of The Church 2:188-189; “The blessing of Brigham YoungBrigham Young was that he should be strong in body, that he might go forth and gather the elect, preparatory to the great day of the coming of the Lord; and that he might be strong and mighty, declaring the tidings to nations that know not God; that he may add ten talents; that he may come to Zion with many sheaves.

August 9 – Luke 8:9-11; ‘And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.’

Today I read with sorrow the July issue of the First Presidency Message on the LDS website. My first thought when I read the phrase ‘all is well’, was a warning from God in the book of Jeremiah.

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Patience, a Key to Happiness”, May 1987, 30; “We should be patient in developing and strengthening our testimonies. Rather thanJoseph B.Wirthlin expecting immediate or spectacular manifestations, though they will come when needed, we should pray for a testimony, study the scriptures, follow the counsel of our prophet and other Church leaders, and live the principles of the gospel. Our testimonies then will grow and mature naturally, perhaps imperceptibly at times, until they become driving forces in our lives.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin

flowers-cartoon-8After taking a well deserved break from all things Mormon, Melissa’s back! Yay! One of the first things she did was send me a link for a video and when I mentioned that I’d like to use it straightaway she suggested it’d be a great segue for her article on the Visiting Teaching Message for April.

So here’s the link – it takes all of 3.5 minutes and it’s a cartoon on missionaries showing up at your door. Let us know what you think!
