Answers to Gospel Questions 3:141; “Summarizing the facts—Joseph Smith revealed that Gabriel was Noah; Luke declared that it was the angel Gabriel who appeared to Zacharias and Mary; and the Lord has declared that Elias appeared to Zacharias and Joseph Smith. Therefore, Elias is Noah.” – Joseph Fielding Smith, 1960

February 22 – God warns us about false prophets in Deut. 13:6-9; “If thy brother, the son of they mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou has no known, thou, nor thy father; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him…”

The Church’s recent announcement raised more than a few eyebrows for those in the know about all things Mormon.

There were a handful of issues people brought up, and having reporters on the scene gave the impression their new prophet, Russell M. Nelson, would acquiesce, and answer their concerns. Alas, true to Mormon style that assumption proved wrong. The fallout didn’t take long to kick in from around the media tables.

While there were many legitimate issues people wanted addressed, we’re only looking at a couple of things, with an emphasis on their chronically terminal racist problem they instigate, and turn a blind eye to.

Journal of Discourses 9:312; “All those who believe in their hearts and confess with their mouths that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet, at the same time trying with their might to live the holy principles Joseph the Prophet has revealed, are in possession of the Holy Spirit of God and are entitled to a fullness.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, July 13, 1862

Psalm 16:8-10 “I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 10 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”

The proof, they say, is in the pudding so that’s just what we’re doing today. We’re taking a look at factual info from both the Bible, and Joseph Smith’s history to see why he couldn’t offer salvation as he claimed. According to the Bible, that’s the job of the Messiah, not you, or me, nor Joseph Smith.

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released a 2017 Christmas message:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this Christmas season, our hope is that the light and testimony of the Savior’s divine mission as the Redeemer of all mankind will come into our hearts and be reflected in our thoughts, our words, and our actions.

May each of us be blessed at this joyous season of the year as we acknowledge with sincere gratitude the Father’s incomparable gift to us of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Master.

Thomas S. Monson
Henry B. Eyring
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Plan of Salvation; “In the premortal existence, Heavenly Father prepared a plan to enable us to become like Him and receive a fulness of joy. The scriptures refer to this plan as “the plan of salvation” (Alma 24:14; Moses 6:62), “the great plan of happiness” (Alma 42:8), “the plan of redemption” (Jacob 6:8; Alma 12:30), and “the plan of mercy” (Alma 42:15). The plan of salvation is the fulness of the gospel. It includes the Creation, the Fall, the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and all the laws, ordinances, and doctrines of the gospel. Moral agency, the ability to choose and act for ourselves, is also essential in Heavenly Father’s plan. Because of this plan, we can be perfected through the Atonement, receive a fulness of joy, and live forever in the presence of God. Our family relationships can last throughout the eternities.” – LDS.org

Ephesians 6:11-12; “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 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.”

A few days ago a friend suggested we write about the slavery of Mormonism. Specifically, she wanted to know what things in Mormonism kept Mormon people enslaved to their religious convictions.

My default answer on anything like this are the two verses listed above. Of course, there’s always more to the story as they say, but ultimately it’s Satan.

In response to her request: the articles I’ve written since that time is my answer.

The order listed below is totally random, meaning one doesn’t take precedence over another.

Here’s a synopsis of what Melissa and I have posted beginning with the most recent –

June 29 – How to determine a true prophecy. 2 Peter 1:20-21; “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

 General Conference, ‘The Marvelous Foundation of Our Faith,’ October 2002

 …They came, both of Them, that Joseph saw Them in Their resplendent glory, that They spoke to him and that he heard and recorded Their words—of these remarkable things we testify.
I knew a so-called intellectual who said the Church was trapped by its history.
My response was that without that history we have nothing.
The truth of that unique, singular, and remarkable event is the pivotal substance of our faith.  But this glorious vision was but the beginning of a series of manifestations that constitute the early history of this work.
As if that vision were not enough to certify to the personality and the reality of the Redeemer of mankind, there followed the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. Here is something that a man could hold in his hands, could “heft,” as it were. He could read it. He could pray about it, for it contained a promise that the Holy Ghost would declare its truth if that witness were sought in prayer….” – Gordon B. Hinckley [emp. mine]

‘Sin is not just breaking God’s laws; it is breaking His heart.’ – Adrian Rogers

Journals1A distinguishing mark of Mormonism is found in its infrastructure. Referring to itself as a corporation, it’s steeped in nepotism, and runs like a well oiled machine operating from the top down, think pyramid.

Members are assigned tasks, known as ‘callings’, and will fulfill their respective role until their phone rings with another position. If they’re part of the upper echelon, they’ll serve in that capacity the remainder of their life.

Mormons believe the prophet of the Church is the sole mouthpiece for God. No one else on earth can speak for God to direct the Church, and no one else is given revelations from God to move the Church in a different direction.

November 26 – Romans 14:17-20; “For the kingdomof Godis not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.”
