Follow the Living Prophets, pp. 112-113; “Relying only upon canonized scriptures, observed President Wilford Woodruff, “would scarcely be sufficient to guide us twenty-four hours” (in Journal of Discourses 9:324)…Elder Orson F. Whitney said:… The Latter-day Saints do not do things because they happen to be printed in a book. They do not do things because God told the Jews to do them; nor do they do or leave undone anything because of the instructions that Christ gave to the Nephites.

Whatever is done by this Church is because God, speaking from heaven in our day, has commanded this Church to do it. No book presides over this Church, and no book lies at its foundation. You cannot pile up books enough to take the place of God’s priesthood… That is the constitution of the Church of Christ. … Divine revelation adapts itself to the circumstances and conditions of men, and change upon change ensues as God’s progressive work goes on to its destiny. There is no book big enough or good enough to preside over this Church. (In Conference Report, October 1916, p. 55.)” [emp. mine]

Zechariah 11:4-6a; “Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.”

Matthew 23:1-4; “Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”

People often ask us at LAM if anyone knew what Smith and his friends were up to in the early days of Mormonism.

The answer to that is a resounding, YES!

Books and pamphlets were written exposing the Church’s nefarious deeds. Conferences were held, meetings scheduled, and an all out propaganda machine was in full swing denouncing what Smith and company were doing. For many, it wasn’t just the fact he was spreading a false gospel, oh no. Many were up in arms because of the wanton sexual licentious they engaged in, reminiscent of the days in Sodom and Gomorrah. People were horrified learning about the spiritual wifery, and swapping wives amongst themselves for a higher status.

Many dubbed their activities as nothing less than prostitution on the Western Frontier.

Today we’re highlighting two of the more well known ‘anti-Mormons’ of the time; John Bowes, and John Hyde, Jr. We’ve pulled a quote from each of their books to give readers an idea of what others thought of Mormonism.

We’re also wondering…

 October 7 – Was Jesus begotten? Luke 1:35; “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”

If nothing else from this lesson is remembered beloved, remember what our Lord God has told us in His word. Hebrews 13:5 declares –

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

Today we’re publishing our new page for an all important Mormon topic; ‘Follow the Prophet’. We published an article on this about 3.5 yrs ago, but since then the amount of  attention the Church has given to this warrants our time, and updates with many of the things they’ve said.

We’ve listed some of the contents of our new page below, but for future reference you can find it in full on the sidebar over to the right.

Matthew 7:15; “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Despite constant reassurances from leaders of the Church they can be trusted, it turns out they’re a picture perfect example of the wolf in sheep’s clothing!

The LDS Church makes it a priority to remind people their self-ordained prophets would never lead people astray. The following is just one of several examples anyone can find in their writings/teaching manuals. We found our example in the LDS Student Manual, The Living Prophet, the President of the Church

“You keep your eye upon him whom the Lord called, and I say to you now, knowing that I stand in this position, you don’t need to worry about the President of the Church ever leading people astray, because the Lord would remove him out of his place before He would ever allow that to happen” (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1996], 533).

Journal of Discourses 4:77-78; “I never preached to the world but what the cry was, “…Joe Smith has done thus and so.” I would tell the people that they did not know him, and I did, and that I knew him to be a good man… He may get drunk every day of his life, sleep with his neighbor’s wife every night, run horses and gamble, I do not care anything about that…But the doctrine he has produced will save you and me, and the whole world; and if you can find fault with that, find it.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, November 9, 1856

Doctrine and Covenants 50:28; “But no man is possessor of all things except he be purified and cleansed from all sin.”
