Journal of Discourses 13:213-214 “Can we devise any other means and plan of salvation? We cannot. Will we do away with the Bible? We will not; though the Christian world are actually coming to the point that they will dismiss the Bible from their schools; and by and by they will dismiss it from their pulpits…

They cannot abide the doctrine contained in the Old and New Testament, “and,” say they, “we must alter and change it; it does not suit our condition. It was not written for us; it was written for people in days of old …

We cannot find books of that edition; some that have been altered and changed are plentiful. I mean King James’ translation, and that is good enough for me; it will answer my purpose. But how is it with the Christian world? Will it answer theirs? If it will, why do they not abide by it? … They would do so if they were honest and their belief was sincere. And it will have to be so with them if ever they gain admittance into the kingdom of God, for in the Bible are the words of life and salvation.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, July 17, 1870 (more…)

Matthew 7:26 “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.”

I was visiting a favored site a few days ago, and came upon some interesting statistics of the Mormon Church. See reference at the end of article. The title of this article was one of the facts the author pulled from an LDS reference.

We’re wondering…

Why isn’t Jesus the foundation if He’s the namesake of their church? They’ve obviously heard the word of God! And since when isn’t Jesus the means of salvation?

Why proclaim His name if salvation is available through some other means?

The following LDS reference comes from a teaching manual very much in use today.

Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith, pp 192-205 “…the revelations are “the foundation of the Church in these last days…”  …Those who reject the living prophet will not progress and will bring upon themselves the judgments of God. … “The doctrine of revelation far transcends the doctrine of no revelation; for one truth revealed from heaven is worth all the sectarian notions in existence.” [History of the Church, 6:252].

“Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it. … No man can be a minister of Jesus Christ except he has the testimony of Jesus; and this is the spirit of prophecy…” [History of the Church 3:389–90].”

Witnessing Tip of the Day June 01June 8 – Every Spirit That Confesses. 1 John 4:2-3; “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

As promised, today we’re finishing up our look at comments made by Russell Nelson at his stop in Nairobi, Kenya. Yesterday we examined the Mormon ideology of how LDS temple attendance is mandatory for salvation. See SHAMEFUL LDS AFRICAN TOUR for more info.

To give readers a brief note on today’s topic of dowries, it’d be helpful to know that dowries is a hot topic in African countries today. Somewhere in time there was a major reversal of who paid the dowry, and who was the recipient. As it stands today, the bride’s family owes, and it’s a source of contention in many tribes.

Without belaboring this topic, we’ve found some really good info providing the historical aspects of dowries, both then and now. (more…)
