August 4 – Jesus Isn’t In The Secret Chambers – Matthew 24:24-26; ‘For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Behold, I have told you before.  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.’

Ensign, ‘The Living Christ,’ May 1977, 26

Bernard Brockbank (1909 – 2000) served in several capacities in the Church, namely that of Missions President in the British Isles in the early 1960’s. In the ‘70’s he served as one of the seven assistants to the twelve to live outside the U.S. He was also in charge of the Mormon Pavilion at the New York’s World Fair from 1964-1965 at which time the Church saw a huge increase of members because of his work.

Today we’re looking at an article he wrote 40 years ago. There’s one main purpose in looking at this –

It shows how the Church has used God’s word to deceive. They use the Bible, which they’ve condemned, to lure people in, and present themselves as God’s true messengers.

People like my mother have been tricked by their conniving ways for almost two hundred years now. The very first thing he said should serve as a warning to everyone who concerns themselves with the cause of Christ. They’re singing the same tune even now in the 21st Century… (more…)

1 Corinthians 2:14; “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Liahona January 2015 1A few weeks ago I noticed an article in the Church’s Newsroom announcements saying they broke a record for the number of times people downloaded talks for General Conferences. The reason it caught my attention is because I’ve seen a record number of downloads for our articles on this General Conference as well and then I began to wonder why…

salt lake mormon temple 2Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg 74; “President Smith proposed the following question: What importance is there attached to the calling of the Twelve Apostles, different from the other callings or officers of the Church? . . . They are the Twelve Apostles, who are called to the office of the Traveling High Council, who are to preside over the churches of the Saints, among the Gentiles, where there is no presidency established; and they are to travel and preach among the Gentiles, until the Lord shall command them to go to the Jews. They are to hold the keys of this ministry, to unlock the door of the Kingdom of heaven unto all nations, and to preach the Gospel to every creature. This is the power, authority, and virtue of their apostleship.”

General Conference October 2011, Part 2

Matthew 24:36; “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Twice a year the Mormon Church holds their conferences as a time for members to hear the words spoken by the General Authorities and be inspired for another six months.

Many of the conferences are filled with the same mundane message that seems as if they’ve just been recycled with a few things changed to fit in with the times.  This time around wasn’t much different from that scenario with the exception of a couple things that stood out for me.
