‘I and my Father are one.’ John 10:30

 Today we’re looking at one of the contradictions in Mormonism. To say this is a major one would be an understatement! It’s little wonder members can be confused – unfortunately, it comes from the hands of its leadership. I realize we’ve looked at this before, but it bears repeating as you meet with loved ones during the holidays!

Check out what the Church said about their belief in the Trinity –

Mormon Godhead “The Trinity of traditional Christianity is referred to as the Godhead by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. …Yet, Church teachings about the Godhead differ from those of traditional Christianity. For example, while some believe the three members of the Trinity are of one substance, Latter-day Saints believe they are three physically separate beings, but fully one in love, purpose and will.”

With that in mind, here’s what the Book of Mormon says – (more…)

October 4 – LDS Uninspired Canon. Luke 2:4-6 “And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.  And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.” (more…)

 October 2 – Nations seek His counsel. Isaiah 11:1-4, 10; “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 10 ¶ And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.”

Like many things in Mormonism, a grain of truth is usually mixed in with lies. Case in point today is the one verse in Doctrine & Covenants below. They’ve attached links to key words inside the verse leading readers to faraway lands that contradict their own tenets, and has nothing to do with what you just read.

All that aside, we’re taking a look at the contradiction Joe Smith obviously inserted into his sacred prophecies. The other side trips they take you on will be explored at another time. We’ve left them intact here to show the rabbit trails they take readers on.

Doctrine and Covenants 130:11 “And a white stone is given to each of those who come into the celestial kingdom, whereon is a new name written, which no man knoweth save he that receiveth it. The new name is the key word.” (more…)

‘But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.’ Galatians 1:8-9

 The following is the infamous false Quakers on the Moon prophecy. There are a couple of interesting items of note in its context you may not know about – I know I didn’t!

The Young Woman’s Journal Vol. 3, No. 6, March 1892, pp. 263-264 “Astronomers and philosophers have, from time almost immemorial until very recently, asserted that the moon was uninhabited, that it had no atmosphere, etc. But recent discoveries, through the means of powerful telescopes, have given scientists a doubt or two upon the old theory. Nearly all the great discoveries of men in the last half century have, in one way or another, either directly or indirectly, contributed to prove Joseph Smith to be a Prophet.

As far back as 1837, I know that he said the moon was inhabited by men and women the same as this earth, and that they lived to a greater age than we do — that they live generally to near the age of a 1000 years. He described the men as averaging near six feet in height, and dressing quite uniformly in something near the Quaker style.

In my patriarchal blessing, given by the father of Joseph the Prophet, in Kirtland, 1837, I was told that I should preach the gospel before I was 21 years of age; that I should preach the gospel to the inhabitants upon the islands of the sea, and — to the inhabitants of the moon, even the planet you can now behold with your eyes.” — Oliver Boardman Huntington (more…)

There are times in life when we become aware the Lord is orchestrating events around us, and this becomes even more apparent when we start walking with Him.

Today we’re looking at a number of verses in His word where God reveals He resides inside His believers. No doubt, for each verse listed below there are numerous others!

For the sake of time and space, we’ve listed but a few of the times God reassures us that He lives inside of us. What comfort this has brought me countless times!

The flipside of this is the tragedy when some people don’t have the same luxury because they’ve bought into lies of others in whom they’ve placed their trust.

The Mormons, my beloved people, have done just that by following a man who decided to hate the Bible, and therefore, God Himself as well. It’s clear in the writings of his own prophecies from a false god his goal was to lead people away from the Lord, not to Him.

I was reminded of how empty my everyday life was before I became a Christian after speaking with my mother not long ago. Long story short, she obviously wasn’t aware Jesus could calm her rattled nerves during times of distress. Oh be still my heart…

We thought it’d be good to have a few verses on hand to share with your Mormon friends/loved ones. Be sure to point out how often God reassures us of His Holy Spirit residing inside of us – and remember beloved – unbelievers can already see there’s something different in your life compared to their own.

Above all things, we pray it brings Him glory, and the Mormon people will come to a saving knowledge of Christ Jesus, and Him crucified.

Be blessed! (more…)

The Millennial Harbinger, Vol. 2:93 “This prophet Smith, through his stone spectacles, wrote on the plates of Nephi, in this book of Mormon, every error and almost every truth discussed in New York for the last ten years. He decided all the great controversies;—infant baptism, ordination, the trinity, regeneration, repentance, justification, the fall of man, the atonement, transubstantiation, fasting, penance, church government, religious experience, the call to the ministry, the general resurrection, eternal punishment, who may baptize, and even the question of free masonary, republican government, and the rights of man. All these topics are repeatedly alluded to.” — Alexander Campbell, 1833 (more…)

Sorry about the throwback to an old soap opera my grandmother used to watch…however, we thought it might be useful to put things in perspective regarding the evolving world of Mormon polygamy.

The examples we’ve listed here today are but a small drop in a very large bucket of Mormon lies…

Our first example comes from their official canon, the Book of Mormon. Many aren’t aware that this ‘divine work of God’ actually condemned polygamy no less than three times!

Jacob 2:24, 27 “Behold, David and Solomon truly had many wives and concubines, which thing was abominable before me, saith the Lord. 27 Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the Lord: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife; and concubines he shall have none.”

Mosiah 11:2 “For behold, he did not keep the commandments of God, but he did walk after the desires of his own heart. And he had many wives and concubines. And he did cause his people to commit sin, and do that which was abominable in the sight of the Lord. Yea, and they did commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness.”

Ether 10:5 “And it came to pass that Riplakish did not do that which was right in the sight of the Lord, for he did have many wives and concubines, and did lay that upon men’s shoulders which was grievous to be borne; yea, he did tax them with heavy taxes; and with the taxes he did build many spacious buildings.” (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 84:86, 91 “Therefore, let no man among you, for this commandment is unto all the faithful who are called of God in the church unto the ministry, from this hour take purse or scrip, that goeth forth to proclaim this gospel of the kingdom. 91 And he that doeth not these things is not my disciple; by this you may know my disciples.” — 1832 (more…)
