“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

 Yesterday I received an e-mail from Melissa that made me grateful I was sitting down. She came across a pro-Mormon Facebook page that screams false prophet, reminding us of the inherent dangers of Mormonism.

The FB page had a caption of an Israelite painting blood over a doorpost, followed by Nelson’s blasphemous declaration – (more…)

General Conference, ‘Lord, I believe,’ April 2013 “Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are all God has ever had to work with. That must be terribly frustrating to Him, but He deals with it. So should we.” — Jeffery R. Holland (more…)

The Latter-day Saints Millennial Star Vol. 49, No. 19, May 9, 1887, p. 301 “If we are persecuted for our religion, it is no more than we have been taught to expect. … The most encouraging words that could be uttered by Our Almighty Father to His children have been given to us. We have proved them to be true up to the present, and we know every word will be fulfilled that has been spoken concerning the future.

They who fight against Zion shall be destroyed; and the pit which has been digged shall be filled by those who digged it, unto their utter destruction.” — John Taylor (more…)

Matthew 6:21 ‘For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.’

 I don’t know why, but whenever I see things like our topic listed above, my heart does a nosedive. Activities of the Church clearly show what’s important to them, and where they’ve chosen to place their focus.

An article in the latest Ensign spoke of the ‘miraculous event’ when Joseph Smith went to the woods and prayed. In part here’s what it says – (more…)

Genesis 26:2-5 “And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

Doctrines of Salvation 2:188APOSTATE CHURCH AND SALVATION FOR DEAD. They have in the Catholic Church the doctrine of indulgences…They sold these indulgences. That is one of the main things that took Martin Luther out of the Catholic Church. He began to realize that the practice was wrong; it was not possible, not just or right for a person to sell forgiveness of sins for a price, either before or after the sin…

In the Catholic Church they offer prayers for the dead to get them out of purgatory. And people pay the priests to pray for the dead. Now that is a corruption of the doctrine of salvation for the dead.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1955 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 4:76-77 “We have in our community the worst creatures that the world can produce; the Gospel net must gather them of necessity, or the saying of Jesus, and what he knew of the kingdom in the last day would not come to pass. There are as bad men and women within the pales of this Church as there are upon this earth, and the Gospel being preached to them prepares them to become devils. As you have frequently been told, that is the only way men can become devils…” — Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake, November 9, 1856 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 15:279 “There never was a more infidel generation of Christians on the face of the earth than there is to-day. They do not expect that God will do anything in a temporal point of view towards the fulfillment of his promises; they are not looking forward for the establishment of his kingdom, or for the building up of his Zion on the earth. Their eyes are closed to these things, because they have rejected the light.

When Joseph Smith brought this Gospel to the world, there was a great deal more faith in God, a great deal more faith in his revelations, and, according to the light they had, a great deal more pure and undefiled religion than there is now. We have carried the Gospel to all Christian nations who would permit us, and they have rejected it, and they are under condemnation.”  — Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, January 12, 1873 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:178 “We are His sons and daughters naturally, and by the principles of eternal life. We are brethren and sisters. What is it that makes the distinctions we see in the classes of the children of men?

We see the low and the degraded, like the aborigines of our country; what is the cause of their being in their present condition? It is because of the rejection by their fathers of the Gospel of the Son of God. The Gospel brings intelligence, happiness, and glory to all who obey it and live according to its precepts. It will give them intelligence that comes from God. Their minds will be open so as to understand things as they are…” — Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, May 29, 1870 (more…)

Jesus Christ: The Source of Enduring Joy “From a devotional address, “That They Might Have Joy,” delivered at Brigham Young University on December 4, 2018. …

Since becoming president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Russell M. Nelson frequently has extended an invitation to the people of the world that includes the promise of joy: “Our message to the world is simple and sincere: we invite all of God’s children on both sides of the veil to come unto their Savior, receive the blessings of the holy temple, have enduring joy, and qualify for eternal life.”6” — David Bednar

See Russell M. Nelson, “Let Us All Press On,” Liahona, May 2018, 118–19 for Mr. Bednar’s reference. (more…)

“Joseph Smith as an Administrator,” Gary Dean Guthrie, Master’s Thesis, Brigham Young University, May 1969, p. 161 “Joseph tested the Saints to make sure their testimonies were of his religion and not of him as a personable leader Amasa Lyman, of the First Presidency, related:

‘Joseph Smith tried the faith of the Saints many times by his peculiarities. At one time, he had preached a powerful sermon on the Word of Wisdom, and immediately thereafter, he rode through the streets of Nauvoo smoking a cigar. Some of the brethren were tried as was Abraham of old.'”

Journal of Discourses 6:345-346 “Some would have us believe that God is present everywhere. It is not so. He is no more everywhere present in person than the Father and Son are one in person. The Bible teaches that doctrine precisely as it is.

The kingdom that the Almighty will set up in the latter days will have its officers, and those officers will be peace. Every man that officiates in a public capacity will be filled with the Spirit of God…” — Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, July 31, 1859 (more…)

Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, pp. 89-90 “Not only are there apostates within our midst, but there are also apostate doctrines that are sometimes taught in our classes and from our pulpits and that appear in our publications. And these apostate precepts of men cause our people to stumble. As the Book of Mormon, speaking of our day, states: ‘They have all gone astray save it be a few, who are the humble followers of Christ; nevertheless, they are led, that in many instances they do err because they are taught by the precepts of men’ (2 Nephi 28:14).” — Ezra Taft Benson, 1988 (more…)

Man, His Origin and Destiny, p. 315 “There are thousands of miracles performed today, wonders that would astound our grandfathers could they suddenly see them. These miracles are as great as turning water into wine, raising the dead or anything else. A miracle is not, as many believe, the setting aside or overruling natural laws. Every miracle performed in Biblical days or now, is done on natural principles and in obedience to natural law. The healing of the sick, the raising of the dead, giving eyesight to the blind, whatever it may be that is done by the power of God, is in accordance with natural law. Because we do not understand how it is done, does not argue for the impossibility of it.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1954  [This is on p. 484 in non-electronic format.] (more…)
