Deuteronomy 17:17 “Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.”

ABC News “… SALT LAKE CITY — Polygamy wouldn’t be a felony crime in Utah for the first time in 85 years under a bill that passed the Legislature on Friday and appears to be supported by the governor.

Lawmakers voted overwhelmingly for the proposal that supporters said will allow the 30,000 or so people living in the state’s polygamous communities to come out of the shadows and report abuses such as underage marriage by other polygamists without fear of prosecution…” (more…)

 February 27 — Godhood is Polytheism. 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…)

Journal of Discourses 2:338 “…where the personal pronoun is applied to the Spirit, as “He shall lead and guide you into all truth;” “he shall not speak of himself but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak;” and “he shall take of the things of the Father, and show them unto you.”

From these and many other passages of the same kind and bearing, we may draw the conclusion that the Holy Spirit is actually a person. Then, again, there are other revelations where the pronoun it is applied, such for instance as, “The Spirit itself maketh intercession with groanings that cannot be uttered.” And many other revelations convey the idea that the Spirit is a diffused substance. Just so in the Book of Mormon, we find many of those terms, and consequently we are left to our own conjecture respecting there being a personal Holy Spirit; but one thing is certain, whether there is personal Holy Spirit or not, there is an inexhaustible quantity of that Spirit that is not a person. This is revealed; this is a fact. And it is just as probable to my mind, that there should be a portion of it organized into a person, as that it should exist universally diffused among all the materials in space.

This Holy Spirit is all-wise, and in many of its attributes much like the Father and Son, and acts in concert with them. It governs and controls all things, and from this some might infer that it has the same knowledge and power as the Father and Son have.” — Orson Pratt, Great Salt Lake, February 18, 1855 (more…)

February 17 – JST Bible Didn’t Fix KJV ‘Flaws’. Genesis 1:26-27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image,  after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

 January 7 — Mormons Pray to a God They Don’t Know. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (more…)

“Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 46:8

The Seer, p. 224 “God is a God of truth, and cannot lie without violating the great perfections and attributes of his nature, which if he should do, his power and glory would cease, and other Beings who are filled with all the fullness of his attributes, would succeed in his place. But God knowing all things, and loving righteousness and truth with a perfect love, it is impossible for him to violate the great unchangeable principles of his nature. (more…)

 October 27 – 11th Prophet’s Missing Teachings. 1 Corinthians 15:44-47 “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth,  earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”

11th President of the Church — Harold B. Lee — Served from 1972–1973

Mormon canon is replete with specific names for God and Jesus. Ask the Mormon if their god had a father, what is his name? If we were all living in heaven with God before creation, where are the Mormon scriptures with details of our heavenly grandfather’s identity?

Harold B. Lee, Prophet & Seer, p. 542 “Who are you? You are all the sons and daughters of God. Your spirits were created and lived as organized intelligences before the world was. You have been blessed to have a physical body because of your obedience to certain commandments in that premortal state.”

Ensign, “How Men Are Saved,” November 1974, General Conference “Man is a soul, that is, a dual being, a spirit person clothed in a tangible body of flesh and bones. God is a perfected, saved soul enjoying eternal life. He is both immortal and exalted to the highest glory. He is enjoying that blessed condition which men may attain to by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel.” – Marion G. Romney [emp. added] (more…)

July 22 – We Can’t Have It Both Ways! Deut. 18:22; “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously; thou shalt not be afraid of him”.

“Brethren and sisters, you are about to be put under covenant to obey and keep the law of sacrifice, as contained in the Old and New Testaments. …as Jesus Christ has laid down his life for the redemption of mankind, so we should covenant to sacrifice all that we possess, even our own lives if necessary… All arise. … Each of you bring your right arm to the square. …” — LDS Temple Endowment Ceremony, the Garden

The quote above is from a scene in the temple endowment ceremony. You can find it in the link provided above. It’s a haunting reminder of what’s wrong in Mormon temples, especially when you consider that Jesus gave His life for us.

‘In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins…’ Colossians 1:14

We love hearing from our readers – so our post today is in response to a request from one of them. Yay! Specifically, he asked if we could post info concerning the pre-1990’s temple endowment ceremonies containing blood atonement oaths. He frequently shares the info we publish with Mormons he knows, and this topic is one he’s been discussing as of late. (more…)

Lectures on Faith [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1985], 5:2, pp. 48-49 “And he being the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, and having overcome, received a fullness of the glory of the Father, possessing the same mind with the Father, which mind is the Holy Spirit, that bears record of the Father and the Son, and these three are one; or, in other words, these three constitute the great, matchless, governing and supreme, power over all things; by whom all things were created and made that were created and made, and these three constitute the Godhead, and are one; the Father and the Son possessing the same mind, the same wisdom, glory, power, and fullness—filling all in all…” — Joseph Smith, 1834 – 35 (more…)

January 15 — Ashtoreth. Today ask the Mormon in your life for their opinion about their Heavenly Mother. Then ask if they’ve ever heard of Ashtoreth. Be sure you explain with demonstrative evidence (Bible and a dictionary) who this false goddess was, and why Israel was always in trouble for worshiping her. Without being judgmental towards them, ask if they see the correlation between their Heavenly Mother and Ashtoreth. To get a clear idea of who the Mormons believe she is, see our article ‘Heavenly Mother’. (more…)
