‘For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.’ 1 Timothy 1:12

I finally made the break after spending 30 years in the Church, and accepted Jesus as my Savior and God in 1993. One of the main things that played a major part in making my decision was God’s word.

At my ‘Confirmation Ceremony’ at the age of eight, the bishopric literally patted me on the head, gave me a Bible, and told me to go home and read it.*

I thought they were serious, and did just what they said. Unbeknownst to me, I shouldn’t have taken them so seriously. During my very young impressionable years, God spoke to me through His word on several occasions. (more…)

Today we’re looking at the real meaning of a ‘revelation’ Joe Smith pronounced upon Martin Harris, one of the original 3 BoM Witnesses. I use the word ‘pronounced’ because it was more like a curse put on Harris, if he didn’t adhere to the demands of Smith’s god.

“A commandment of God and not of man to you.” Prophecy from Joseph Smith meant for Martin Harris, March, 1830.

You can find two versions of this – one in the Book of Commandments Chapter XVI, the other in Doctrine and Covenants Section 19. The Church had to rewrite the BoC when their printing press was burned down by the locals in July 1833. As ‘luck’ would have it, two young sisters managed to salvage some of the writings during the mêlée. You can read more on that story in our article The True Story of Mary Rollins Lightner.

Below is a side-by-side comparison from both writings. For the sake of brevity, we’ve only listed the relevant verses; to read them in full, see links above. (more…)

Quest for Refuge, p 165“I shall have a son born to me, and his name shall be David; and on him, in some future time, will rest the responsibility that now rests upon me. (Unpublished sermon of Brigham Young, 7 Oct. 1863, Young papers.)” – Marvin S. Hill

Words of Joseph Smith, p 331 “A murderer; for instance one that sheds innocent Blood Cannot have forgiveness, David sought repentance at the hand of God Carefully with tears, but he could ownly get it through Hell, he got a promise that his soul should not be left in Hell, Although David was a King he never did obtain the spirit & power of Elijah & the fulness of the Priesthood, & the priesthood that he received & the throne & kingdom of David is to be taken from him & given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his linage.” [sic] (more…)

‘LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.’ Psalm 119:89

Our post today is a bit different than usual – PTL! Today we’re looking at two things that were totally new for me personally.

We’re starting with the verse listed above. For those who don’t know, ‘LAMED’ is the 12th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and it means to prick, or goad, as you would sheep. Hebrew4Christians.com is an excellent site to add for your everyday studies so be sure to check it out! It has some incredible info on ‘lamed’ you’ll not soon forget.

The other reason for pointing this out is a reminder for members of the LDS Church. We must always remember, no one has the right to add to God’s word. If you’re Christian, be sure to share your favorite verse from God’s word with the Mormon you know about this! (more…)

 Journal of Discourses 6:6; “We say that God himself is a self-existent being. Who told you so? It is correct enough; but how did it get into your heads? Who told you that man did not exist in like manner upon the same principle? Man  does exist upon the same principles. God made a tabernacle and put a spirit into it, and it became a living soul. [Referred to the old Bible.] How does it read in the Hebrew? It does not say in the Hebrew that God created the spirit of man. It says, “God made man out of the earth, and put into him Adam’s spirit, and so became a living body.

The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is coequal with God himself. I know that my testimony is true…” – Joseph Smith, Nauvoo, April 6, 1844

Ether 3:15; “And never have I showed myself unto man whom I have created, for never has man believed in me as thou hast.” — BC c. 2200 [emp. added]

D&C 107:53-55; “Three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, and Methuselah, who were all high priests, with the residue of his posterity who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there bestowed upon them his last blessing. 54 And the Lord appeared unto them, and they rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the prince, the archangel. 55 And the Lord administered comfort unto Adam, and said unto him: I have set thee to be at the head; a multitude of nations shall come of thee, and thou art a prince over them forever.” — [emp. added]

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.’

We’re putting the latest stats together and they should be done by tomorrow, sorry for the delay! I’m not a math person, so I’m taking extra time to check my calculations via the math guy in my life – Kirk! 🙂 

We received a few comments via the blog, site, and private e-mails from people in response to the Church’s stats we reported on yesterday. Be sure to check them out! The mess this church has left in its wake is startling. Please, continue to pray for those involved whether active, inactive, or otherwise.

The one thing we noticed in the talks they delivered is the absence of our dear Lord Jesus. Their talks were reminiscent a pep rally for business people, and didn’t focus on Jesus at all. Their scripture cited below is a good example.

Doctrine and Covenants 132:15-17; “Therefore, if a man marry him a wife in the world, and he marry her not by me nor by my word, and he covenant with her so long as he is in the world and she with him, their covenant and marriage are not of force when they are dead, and when they are out of the world; therefore, they are not bound by any law when they are out of the world. 16 Therefore, when they are out of the world they neither marry nor are given in marriage; but are appointed angels in heaven, which angels are ministering servants, to minister for those who are worthy of a far more, and an exceeding, and an eternal weight of glory. 17 For these angels did not abide my law; therefore, they cannot be enlarged, but remain separately and singly, without exaltation, in their saved condition, to all eternity; and from henceforth are not gods, but are angels of God forever and ever.”
