Doctrine and Covenants 128:20 “And again, what do we hear? Glad tidings from Cumorah! Moroni, an angel from heaven, declaring the fulfilment of the prophets—the book to be revealed. A voice of the Lord in the wilderness of Fayette, Seneca county, declaring the three witnesses to bear record of the book! The voice of Michael on the banks of the Susquehanna, detecting the devil when he appeared as an angel of light! The voice of Peter, James, and John in the wilderness between Harmony, Susquehanna county, and Colesville, Broome county, on the Susquehanna river, declaring themselves as possessing the keys of the kingdom, and of the dispensation of the fulness of times!”

Why I Believe the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God, pp. 4-5 “Now, once we become thoroughly convinced that the Book of Mormon is true, it will, as I have said solve any theological problem that may confront us. Do we want knowledge concerning God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost? We can get it in the Book of Mormon. Would we know concerning the pre-existence of spirits – the fall of man and the atonement – the principles and ordinances of the Gospel of Christ – the state in which spirits of men live between the time of death and the resurrection – we can find it in the Book of Mormon.” — William A. Morton, 1918 (more…)

General Conference, ‘Book of Mormon Geography,’ April 1929, pp. 15-16 “There is a great deal of talk about the geography of the Book of Mormon. Where was Zarahemla? Where was the City of Zarahemla? and other geographic matters. It doesn’t make any difference to us. There has never been anything yet set forth that definitively settles the question. So the Church says we are just waiting until we discover the truth. … We do not offer any definite solution. As  you study the Book of Mormon keep these things in mind and do not make definite statements concerning things that have not been proven in advance to be true.” — Anthony W. Ivins, Apostle

A few days ago Melissa gave me a heads up about the latest installment of the Church’s essays.

She came across a YouTube video discussing how earlier this month the Church quietly placed the latest addition in the Gospel Topics section of their website. (more…)

January 19 — Book of Joseph. Testing for Truth, Part 3; “Many people refuse to use the Bible as a standard for truth. They will often claim that the Bible is not trustworthy, after all, it’s thousands of years old, and it’s probably been corrupted over the years…

If someone claims that the Bible has been corrupted, they have immediately revealed themselves to be a false teacher. Consider this, why would God give us scripture as a means to test teachers, allow that scripture to become corrupted, and then send us another teacher, with no means to test him?

If God had allowed scriptures to become corrupted, and their meanings lost, then we would cease to have any way of knowing God’s truth. For even if after this supposed corruption God were to send a prophet to restore truth, how would we know that it is indeed truth, with no test, anything this prophet says is suspect.

If God were to allow scriptures to become corrupted, that would make it impossible for us to know when He speaks to us. There simply would be no way of knowing if a person is a true prophet of God, or a false prophet teaching doctrines of demons, as any conflict with scripture can simply be excused with the accusation of corruption.” (more…)

Alma 29:1-3 “O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people! 2 Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth. 3 But behold, I am a man, and do sin in my wish; for I ought to be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto me.” — c. BC 76 (more…)

“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” John 1:3

This was a week of inner reflection as America buried its 41st President, George HW Bush. The importance of who this man was couldn’t be missed in the regalia of numerous ceremonies honoring him, and the legacy he left behind.

Our prayers at the ministry this month is focused upon another man of much greater import we hope will capture the attention of every Mormon, and give pause as to Who He is in their own lives.

Jesus.

In Mormonism, descriptions of their Jesus are all over the board. They range from an imperfect, created polygamous brother of Satan, to a redeemer, albeit, without omnipotent power. Today we’re looking at what the Book of Mormon says about Him. Our list here is a partial one taken from an article we published several years ago, Jesus According to the Book of Mormon and the LDS Church.

The reason for this post today is to provide a concise go-to-list of LDS references you can use for witnessing to the Mormon in your life. There’s not much they can argue about because all references can be found right in the BoM they carry around with them every day.

As Dr. Walter Martin always said, ‘Use demonstrative evidence, not experiential reasoning, when you witness’. This isn’t a time for those goose-bump moments! To read the original list with 111 BoM and LDS references, click on the link provided above.

One thing we pray above all other things is for Christ Jesus to be glorified in all we do! We’ve also  included just a few biblical references denoting the greatness of Jesus you can share as you spend time with the Mormons. When we ran a Google search for bible verses on the greatness of Jesus, the shortest list we came across contained 217 references. You obviously won’t run out of things to share – God is good!

Let us know how we can pray for you, and those you witness to!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

1 Cor. 1:18
