Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Doctrines of Salvation 1:58 “THE FIRST MAN OF ALL MEN.” Many revelations attest the truth that Adam was the first man. The Prophet corrected the genealogy of Christ as given in Luke so that it includes this statement: “Adam who was formed of God, and the first man upon the earth.” — Joseph Fielding Smith (more…)

 The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, pp. 455-456 “There are other spectacular revelations mentioned. …. Then came John the Baptist who had been beheaded by the king in a moment of weakness… [then] Peter, James and John now resurrected. So there came, step by step, a restoration of everything, and it all came by revelation, by vision, by dreams, or by deep impression.

So revelation came: sometimes with actual personal appearance of heavenly beings…. But most of the revelations of the Prophet Joseph Smith in this holy record, the Doctrine and Covenants, did not come in that manner. They came as deep impressions.” — Spencer W. Kimball [emp. added] (more…)

 Genesis 14:18 “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.”

Matthew 26:26-29 “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

Journal of Discourses 12:27-28 “The Word of Wisdom is one thing, and ignorance, superstition, or bigotry is another. … Now, there is no harm in a teapot, even if it contains tea, if it is let alone; and I say of a truth that where a person is diseased, say, for instance, with canker, there is no better medicine than green tea, and where it is thus used it should be drank sparingly. …  If a person is weary, worn out, cast down, fainting, or dying, a brandy sling, a little wine, or a cup of tea is good to revive them. Do not throw these things away, and say they must never be used; they are good to be used with judgment, prudence, and discretion. Ask our Bishops if they drink tea every day, and in most cases they will tell you they do if they can get it.” — Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, April 7, 1867 (more…)

 If you follow events in Mormonism you’ve surely heard about the Church’s latest temple opening in Haiti.

As usual, the Church is long on pointing out details of the temple’s interior, and short on exterior events of the host country where they’ve invited themselves to reside.

As a side item here – there are roughly 19,000-23,000 members of the Church which means they make up a mere 0.2% of the Haitian population of roughly 10 million.

The Church claimed at least 80% of Haiti is Catholic, but their numbers are way off. Our research shows it’s more like 57-58%. See report below.

Images of their upscale furnishings reminded me of when I lived in Vegas, and my visit to the Liberace Museum. It’s a flamboyant display of opulence, and something no Haitian will ever know in their lifetime. Everything is overbuilt, and overstated.

The Church’s news release mainly focused on the Swarovski crystal chandeliers from Austria, hand blown Venetian glass from Italy, and high end light fixtures, ‘Italamps’, also from Italy.

The meager offering to their host country was having palm branches painted on the interior walls which are prevalent in Haiti. The Church also pointed out it’s a reminder of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. For more info, see  LDS Living.com. Haiti officially recognized the Church in 1980.

One thing you can count on…the 10,000+ square foot building certainly isn’t a reflection of what’s taking place outside those walls.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the poorest in the world. While the Church didn’t publish the cost of their venture, it’s safe to say it’s in the hundreds of millions. They obviously have no shame whatsoever. (more…)

 Today we’re looking at a speech Brigham Young delivered 158 years ago that’s still in effect today. Pray for all Mormons who believe his lies!


Pray for the Christian ministries with boots on the ground as we speak. Many have made the trip to last ‘Miracle in Manti‘ Pageant. This LDS production has been going on for decades now, but with Mr. Nelson’s directives, they’ve been eliminated.

Many Christians will go with tracts in hand, and witness to the thousands of Mormons who’ve turned this event into their yearly family vacation. Nestled in the hills of Utah, Manti is virtually unknown if not for the yearly pageants. The surrounding communities are swamped with polygamous families still in operation. One of our faithful visitors to this site will be in attendance as well! (Praying for you Melissa B.!)

When Kirk and I visited the pageant years ago, groups of women donned in long skirts and bright pink t-shirts came up to argue the benefits of polygamy. Their t-shirts said, ‘Help stamp out monogamy’. Oh my…

Now for our LDS reference –

Journal of Discourses 7:290 “Should not this thought comfort all people? They will, by-and-by, be a thousand times more thankful for such a man as Joseph Smith, junior, than it is possible for them to be for any earthly good whatever. It is his mission to see that all the children of men in this last dispensation are saved, that can be, through the redemption.

Gospel Doctrine, Chapter 25, p. 480 “THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH. Brother Woodruff, in the course of his remarks, made the assertion that Joseph Smith was the greatest prophet that has ever lived, of whom we have any knowledge, save and except Jesus Christ himself…Today there is not another man, perhaps, who has figured in religion, whose name is so wide-spread among the nations, as that of Joseph Smith.” – Joseph F. Smith

Journal of Discourses 1:25 “…it is the spirit and intention of the language that are to be looked at, and if the translator does not know this it is impossible for him to translate correctly, and this is the reason why there are so many blunders in the Bible. I believe the English Bible is translated as well as any book could be by uninspired men.” — John Taylor, Great Salt Lake City, August 22, 1852 (more…)

 Warning for those contemplating membership in the Mormon Church!

Question of the Day:

What happens to people who die before having had a chance to hear the gospel?

Today we’re looking over LDS prophecies concerning the fate of mankind; LDS, and otherwise.

As we look over LDS canon, we can clearly see how Smith’s directives evolved over time. In the beginning stages of his preaching, the fate of those who didn’t fully obey the gospel was clearly defined. His signature canon, the Book of Mormon published in 1830, declared there are no 2nd chances. His chronic contradictions were implemented to create confusion, not peace.

‘Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet.’ Acts 7:48

In the never-ending cat and mouse game the Church plays it seems they’ve done it again with the latest temple changes. This time around we’re talking about the elimination of the Veil Worker position in Mormon temples. The official announcement was made on March 1, 2019.

If you go online looking for the official Church statement on how they’ve eliminated the Veil Worker position, you’ll come up empty handed.

You can find numerous stories published by nonofficial pro-LDS media outlets; LDSDaily.com, LDSLiving.com, and ThisWeekinMormons.com, to name a few. However as I said, if you aren’t a member with a special code to put in for access to what the Church leaders say, you’re outta luck my friend. (more…)

From the outside looking in, it’s easy to see the Mormon gospel is a bag of mixed messages. However, for those on the inside blatant contradictions are either missed, and/or ignored.

Reality: the nuance of the Mormon god’s gospel is anything but endearing.

We came across two varying opinions of God’s love for us on another site which gave us pause, and prompted the obvious question…

Which prophet do you believe? (more…)

February 10 – World’s Debt to Joseph Smith. Joshua 24:14-15; “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.  15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

The following is an excerpt from Women of Mormondom, written by Relief Society President, Eliza Roxcy Snow in 1887.

Women of Mormondom, p.540 “The mother of Jesus a virgin of the house of David, and not a flaming goddess from the skies. From woman, the love of Jesus for humanity. From her his sympathies for the race. ‘Twas she, in her son, who forgave sin; she who bade the sinner go and sin no more; she who wept over Jerusalem as a mother weepeth over her young And it was woman, in her son, who died upon the cross for the sins of the world!

New Era, ‘6 Reasons We Really Do Need the Church!,’ August 2018

Note: For the sake of time, we’re looking at just the last of six reasons the leaders have told kids they need the Church. To read their entire article, the link is provided above. …

“6. To Establish the Kingdom of God on the Earth …Through the Church leaders, the Lord can administer His work and minister to His children. Without such leadership, all kinds of false ideas and teachings would threaten to lead us into dark, forbidden paths. In other words, to help us know how to achieve eternal life, we need the protection provided by truly called and ordained prophets and apostles. That happens only in His Church.” – Eric B. Murdock and Joshua J. Perkey

“…anyone who claims superiority under the Father’s plan because of characteristics like race, sex, nationality, language, or economic circumstances is morally wrong and does not understand the Lord’s true purpose for all of our Father’s children.” – Quentin L. Cook

Mormon Newsroom, ‘Be One,’ April 30, 2018; “In scripture, Jesus tells us to “be one; and if ye are not one ye are not mine.” “Be One” is the theme of a First Presidency-sponsored event on June 1, 2018, celebrating the 1978 revelation on the priesthood on its 40th anniversary. BeOne.lds.org has been created to provide more information about the event…

Although attitudes and choices such as anger, bigotry, racism, prejudice and intolerance cause separation and division, fortunately, prophets have taught that “a great day of unity is coming.”

…While the June celebration will hail the history of black Mormon pioneers and reaffirm the reality that “all are alike unto God” in His global family, the event is intended to be much more than a celebration. It will also be a renewal of our collective commitment to pursue oneness in our relationships with each other and with heaven.

President M. Russell Ballard said, “We need to embrace God’s children compassionately and eliminate any prejudice, including racism, sexism, and nationalism. Let it be said that we truly believe the blessings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ are for every child of God.”

Added Elder Quentin L. Cook, “anyone who claims superiority under the Father’s plan because of characteristics like race, sex, nationality, language, or economic circumstances is morally wrong and does not understand the Lord’s true purpose for all of our Father’s children.”  (more…)

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]

2014 moses-seat-chorazinUnfit Leaders Then, & Now. 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…
