Romans 8:3-4 “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Wilford Woodruff

 Waiting for World’s End: The Diaries of Wilford Woodruff, edited by Susan Staker, Signature Books, 1993, p. 305 “Again Presdet Young said Joseph the Prophet told me that the garden of Eden was in Jackson Co Missouri, & when Adam was driven out of the garden of Eden He went about 40 miles to the Place which we Named Adam Ondi Ahman, & there built an Altar of Stone & offered Sacrifize. That Altar remains to this day. I saw it as Adam left it as did many others, & through all the revolutions of the world that Altar had not been disturbed. Joseph also said that when the City of Enoch fled & was translated it was whare the gulf of Mexico now is. It left that gulf a body of water.” [sic] – Wilford Woodruff

 Today we’re checking out three significant fails of the not-so-inspired prophet, Wilford Woodruff. Reading the things this guy had to say reminded me once again of how grateful I am that Jesus saved me!!

Remember, truth haters and deceivers have always been around so keep Peter’s warning in mind!

2 Peter 2:3; “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Deuteronomy 13:1-5; “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.”

General Conference, ‘Joseph Smith: Prophet to Our Generation,’ October 1981; “Joseph Smith false-prophecies-of-mormonism-2obtained this ancient record from a heavenly messenger, just as John prophesied. … Also, in harmony with the testimony of John, the book contains “the everlasting gospel.” It is now preached by our missionaries to the world. …A revealing characteristic of a true prophet is that he declares a message from God. …

The ultimate test of a true prophet is that when he speaks in the name of the Lord his words come to pass. That standard was explained by the Lord to Moses in these words:

“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.” (Deut. 18:22.)

Many prophecies of Joseph Smith are recorded to which this test might be applied…

Joseph Smith was a prophet of the living God, one of the greatest prophets that has ever lived on the earth. He was the instrument in God’s hand in ushering in the present gospel dispensation, the greatest of all, and the last of all in preparation for the second coming of the Master.” – Ezra Taft Benson

2 Corinthians 11:3; “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

False Prophecies of Joseph Smith – 

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 91; “The order of the house of God has been, and ever will be, the same, even after Christ comes; and after the termination of the thousand years it will be the same; and we shall finally enter into the celestial kingdom of God, and enjoy it forever.”

Our bible verse today has been heavy on my heart as of late, and what I’ve been praying the Mormon people would adopt for themselves. The simplicity of Christ is so beautiful, yet the Church has turned what God lovingly gave us and twisted it into an unrecognizable lie from Satan.

BoM3in1 2The Book of Mormon proves itself to be a false gospel in a number of ways, so today we’re looking at a half dozen verses in the first chapter of the first book to find out why.

Putting things in perspective

Collectively speaking, there are 6.604 verses in the BoM, and by the time you get to verse nine in first Nephi you’ll have already been given a dozen or more reasons to prove the BoM isn’t from God. In vss. 1-8, the experiences of Lehi closely resemble the visions of Moses, Daniel, and Isaiah.

Today we’re taking another look at the adoration, and wholesale worship of Joseph Smith in the Mormon Church. The following teaching comes from the LDS Apostle Parley Parker Pratt, who in the eyes of the Church, was also a Mormon martyr.

Key to the Science of Theology by Parley P PrattKey to the Science of Theology, p. 76; “The United States of America was the favored nation raised up, with institutions adapted to the protection and free development of the necessary truths and their practical results. And that great Prophet, Apostle and martyr,

JOSEPH SMITH,

was the Elias, the restorer, the presiding messenger, holding the keys of the “dispensation of the fullness of times.”

salt lake mormon temple 2The spiritual climate of early America was dominated by the palpable urgency of men and women alike looking to hear from God through dreams they would interpret as personal revelations. As a result of the activities, it didn’t take a lot of coaxing to encourage many to try their hand at creating new churches.

This being said, Joe Smith wasn’t the only false prophet roaming upstate NewMartin Harris (1) York’s landscape in the early 19th century. The eastern seaboard had already seen its fair share of ne-er-do-wells with the likes of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772) from Quincy, MA,  and a small sect of the Shakers who settled in the Groveland Shaker Village, in Groveland, NY c. 1826. Their communal living system just so happened to be 62 miles southwest of Palmyra, NY, the birthplace of Mormonism itself.

Gospel_Through_the_Agessalt lake mormon temple 2The Gospel Through the Ages, p. 20; “Since Jesus was foreordained to be the Savior of mankind, God the Father also honored Him by naming the plan of salvation the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It makes no particular difference by what title this system of truth had been called on other worlds, it contains the same eternal verities which, through obedience to its principles, exalt human beings in any world, giving to them eternal life.” – Milton Hunter

salt lake mormon temple 2Oh the tangled web they weave…

As time has waned on for the Church, they’ve made a strict practice of not giving heed to many of their past proclamations. In Mormonism, there are no hard and fast rules, and our example today is a classic display of how they operate.

Mormon Decisions 10History of the Church 2:191; “John F. Boynton’s Blessing:—Thou hast prevailed and thou shalt prevail, and thou shalt declare the Gospel untoJohn f Boynton many nations. Thou shalt be made mighty before God; and although thou shalt be cast out from the face of men, yet thou shalt have power to prevail. Thou shalt lead the elect triumphantly to the places of refuge; thou shalt be like the brethren who have been blessed before thee. Thou shalt stand in that day of calamity when the wicked shall be consumed, and present unto the Father, spotless, the fruits of thy labor. Thou shalt overcome all the evils that are in the world; thou shalt have wisdom to put to silence all the wisdom of the wise; and thou shalt see the face of thy Redeemer in the flesh. These blessings are pronounced and sealed upon thee. Even so. Amen.” – February 15, 1835
