Galatians 2:21 “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”

LDS.org, ‘Conference Notebook,’ October 2016

thomas-s-monson-general-conference-october-2016 “The Plan of Salvation … Essential to the plan [of salvation] is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without His atoning sacrifice, all would be lost. It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve. We need to know God’s laws and live them. We need to receive His saving ordinances. Only by so doing will we obtain true, eternal happiness.” – Thomas S. Monson, “The Perfect Path to Happiness,” Ensign, Nov. 2016, 80–81.

Hebrews 12:2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

teachings-of-the-living-prophets-student-manualToday we’re looking at a teaching manual the Church uses in their young adult classes. The vocabulary is quite concerning, and hopefully, it will open the eyes of members (and Christians too) to see how they’ve tried to shift attention away from Jesus, to the leaders of the Church. Here we go!

In the TEACHINGS OF THE LIVING PROPHETS STUDENT MANUAL, there are two items of major concern. The first item says –

‘A careful study of this chapter will deepen your appreciation for the President of the Church and the priesthood keys of authority he holds and will help you understand how safety comes to those who choose to heed his counsel.’

2 Timothy 1:12 ‘…for I know whom I have believed…’

stickman thinking 2A couple of weeks ago Melissa sent me a link to a Facebook post she read that posed serious questions for each of us.

Today we’re simply going to ask a few questions about the post, and also ask our readers for their opinions as well, so here we go!

The FB post originated from the LDS New Era Magazine which contained an article about the traditions of a presumably LDS family.

The tradition consists of the family who gathered around a roaring fire every year on Christmas Eve, and asked the same question each time …

‘Should we believe for one more year?’

“The Journal of Discourses is not an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a compilation of sermons and other materials from the early years of the Church, which were transcribed and then published. It included some doctrinal instruction but also practical teaching, some of which is speculative in nature and some of which is only of historical interest.” Journal of Discourses

Journals1As a reminder, the quote above came from the official website of the LDS Church, and  the problem with it is clearly seen in the preface of each volume for the JoD (Journal of Discourses). While each volume has a unique intro, we believe volume two contains one of the most horrifying statements we’ve read in all of Mormondom.

The purpose in gathering all the Church’s endorsements for the JoD isn’t to sensationalize, rather, it’s to inform. We pray the Christian will be able to utilize the info to aid while witnessing, and members of the Church will see the contradictions in the Church’s statements. Please know we’re praying for all involved!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

Revelation 4:10-11; “The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

Young Woman’s Journal: V 2, No. 10, July 1891, p. 465

asherah-taanach-cult-stand-223x300-biblical-archaeology-review

This four-tiered cult stand found at Tanaach is thought to represent Yahweh and Asherah, with each deity being depicted on alternating tiers. Note that on tier two, which is dedicated to Asherah, is the image of a living tree, often thought to be how the asherim as a cult symbol was expressed.

“…our girls are in these years are placed in the same schools and given the same tasks that boys are, with little or no physical exercise. And what is the consequence? Simply this: That the reproductive organs are dwarfed and deprived of their natural strength, and in many instances the girl is deprived of that holiest, grandest gift of God unto His daughters, the crown of motherhood.” – Oliver B. Huntington
