 September 18 – John 14:1-3; “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

 Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 1 “The Gospel of the Son of God that has been revealed is a plan or system of laws and ordinances, by strict obedience to which the people who inhabit this earth are assured that they may return again into the presence of the Father and the Son. 13:233.” — Discourse by President Brigham Young, delivered in the Tabernacle, Salt Lake City, Feb. 20, 1870.Reported by David W. Evans. [emp. added] (more…)

 Journal of Discourses 2:129-130 “…It is written “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Again, “If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.” …

If the first passage I have quoted is not worded to our understanding, we can alter the phraseology of the sentence… To be as perfect as we possibly can, according to our knowledge, is to be just as perfect as our Father in heaven is. He cannot be any more perfect than He knows how, any more than we.

When we are doing as well as we know how in the sphere and station which we occupy here, we are justified in the justice, righteousness, mercy, and judgment that go before the Lord of heaven and earth. We are as justified as the angels who are before the throne of God. — Brigham Young Delivered in the Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, December 18, 1853. (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 132 IntroRevelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Nauvoo, Illinois, recorded July 12, 1843, relating to the new and everlasting covenant, including the eternity of the marriage covenant and the principle of plural marriage. Although the revelation was recorded in 1843, evidence indicates that some of the principles involved in this revelation were known by the Prophet as early as 1831. See Official Declaration 1.(more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 132:4, 34 “For behold, I reveal unto you a new and an everlasting covenant; and if ye abide not that covenant, then are ye damned; for no one can reject this covenant and be permitted to enter into my glory. 34 God commanded Abraham, and Sarah gave Hagar to Abraham to wife. And why did she do it? Because this was the law; and from Hagar sprang many people. This, therefore, was fulfilling, among other things, the promises.” (more…)

Lying for the Lord

Preach My Gospel, p. 50 “When first teaching this doctrine, do not teach everything you know about it. Explain very simply that God chose two of His children, Adam and Eve, to become the first parents on earth. After their transgression they were subject to both sin and death. By themselves they could not return to live with Heavenly Father. The Lord spoke to Adam and taught him the plan of salvation and redemption through the Lord Jesus Christ. By following that plan, Adam and his family could have joy in this life and return to live with God (See Alma 18:36; 22:12-14).”

Holy Ghost on Probation and Still Waiting for His Body

Encyclopedia of Joseph Smith’s Teachings, p. 323 “Words of Franklin D. Richards: Joseph also said that the Holy Ghost is now in a state of probation which if he should perform in righteousness he may pass through the same or a similar course of things that the Son has. (Joseph Smith, The Words of Joseph Smith, p. 245; standardized)…But the Holy Ghost is yet a spiritual body and waiting to take to himself a body, as the Savior did or as God did or the gods before them took bodies; for the Savior says the work that my Father did do I also. . . . He took himself a body and then laid down his life that he might take it up again. (Joseph Smith, The Words of Joseph Smith, p. 382; standardized).”

Matt 15:9 “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Joseph Smith Bears Infirmities of Others 

Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 28 “Although I was called of my Heavenly Father to lay the foundation of this great work and kingdom in this dispensation, and testify of his revealed will to scattered Israel, I am subject to like passions as other men, like the prophets of olden times. Notwithstanding my weaknesses, I am under the necessity of bearing the infirmities of others, who when they get into difficulty, hang on to me tenaciously to get them out, and wish me to cover their faults. (HC 5:516.)”

General Conference, ‘New Temples’, April 2021 “President Nelson’s announcement today of 20 new temples and their locations is unique not simply because of the historic number with specific locations. The prophet has now announced 69 new temples in the three years he has served as president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Church of Jesus Christ now has 251 temples announced, under construction or operating.” (more…)

Jesus in the Book of Mormon and the LDS Church

With Easter just around the corner, we thought it’d be a good reminder to show the truth about the Jesus of Mormonism. We originally posted this in 2011.

Our intent in posting these things isn’t to ridicule or bash the Mormon people, rather, it’s to inform both the Christians, as well as the LDS people.

As is usually the case, I stumbled across something interesting in the Book of Mormon while looking for something else.  This time I was reminded of what the Nephites thought of Jesus and His skin color in 3 Nephi 19:30;

 “And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were white, even as Jesus.

 How can this be you ask?  Yeah, well you might want to hold that thought so you can ask the same question about all the things they say about Jesus.  So this got me to thinking…is there a concise list of all the things Mormons are taught about Jesus?

I remember being a Mormon and being confused about the truth. I wanted so badly to know Him, but didn’t know how or even where to look.  Each time I read my MIA or Relief Society manuals to compare them with the Bible, I kept getting more and more confused. I couldn’t keep the stories about Him straight and often wondered where the atonement took place and when. (more…)

 Russell M. Nelson begins his talk to the women by saying –

“You have not only the numbers but the spiritual power to change the world. I have watched you doing just that during this pandemic.”

He then gives them three principles to help them navigate the current situation the world is in now.

As I read this quote a couple thoughts came into my mind. I asked myself – What “spiritual power’ is he referring to, and where are these powers coming from? (more…)
