 August 22 – Job 38:4-6 “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.  Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?  Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof.”

August 8 – Is rewriting scripture really inspired? Matthew 14:15-21 “And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.”

September 10 – 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (more…)

“We can also intentionally deceive others by a gesture or a look, by silence, or by telling only part of the truth.” – Gospel Principles, p 181.

The quote above comes from an LDS teaching manual. Ironically, holding back the truth is one of the trademarks in Mormonism.

As I’ve always said, I publish these things not out of animosity, nor to bash the Mormon people. On the contrary, my heart hurts for them, and they deserve to have the truth presented in a manner that glorifies the Lord.

It’s painfully obvious Joe Smith took names in the Bible, tweaked them a bit, and inserted them into his own version of the gospel he dubbed ‘The Book of Mormon’. What breaks my heart about his nefarious deed is the effect it’s had on many levels.

 Lesson 6: Joseph Smith Begins to Translate the Gold Plates, Primary 5: Doctrine and Covenants and Church History, (1997), 26–30; “Teach the children about the loss of the 116 pages of the manuscript translated from the gold plates, as described in the following historical account (refer to the map where appropriate). Discuss the revelations concerning this event that were given to Joseph Smith in Doctrine and Covenants 3 and 10.

Once Joseph and Emma Smith were settled in Harmony, Pennsylvania, Joseph began to translate the gold plates. At first Joseph spent a lot of time becoming familiar with the plates and the language in which they were written. As he studied and prayed, the Urim and Thummim helped him understand the characters on the plates. Joseph learned that the process of translation requires faith, hard work, worthiness, patience, and obedience.”

Jeremiah 23:21 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.”

linda-k-burton-largeCES Devotional for Young Adults, ‘Tuning Our Hearts to the Voice of the Spirit,’ January 2014; “The prophet Mormon’s counsel about following the Light of Christ can help us know how to receive the Holy Ghost. Mormon said:

Moroni 7:16–17 “For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God.

“But whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do evil, and believe not in Christ, and deny him, and serve not God, then ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of the devil; for after this manner doth the devil work, for he persuadeth no man to do good, no, not one; neither do his angels; neither do they who subject themselves unto him.” – Linda K. Burton
