April 4 — HE Must Increase. John 3:30-31; “He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.” (more…)

Today we’re looking at an article from the February 2019 Liahona. What caught my attention was its title; ‘A personal relationship with heavenly father’. It didn’t take long to see the many falsehoods in what the author said, and how his words culminated in a host of lies. My heart breaks for those who will believe this guy because I know people like my mother will worry themselves and think they must not be good enough to experience what this guy told people they can achieve.

To start off with, if you’re new to Mormonism it’d be helpful to know the words used in the title of their article aren’t the standard Mormon way of phrasing things. Complicating things further, for years Mormons were told they could not have a personal relationship with Christ, and then they were told they could.

I was a 6th generation Utah Mormon, and in the 30 years I was a member I never heard the phrase ‘personal relationship’ unless it was referring to a loved one. Having a personal relationship with their heavenly father has been an on again, mostly off again event in the history of Mormonism.

Moreover, there’s a laundry list of rules they must observe when praying to their heavenly father. See Prayer Life of Mormons.

With our brief overview behind us, I’ve pulled some of the comments from Juan Uceda’s article to compare his comments with what our Lord has said in His word. To read the Liahona article in full see Liahona, ‘A Personal Relationship with Our Father in Heaven Through Prayer,’ February 2019 Juan A. Uceda. As an FYI, Mr. Uceda is a member of the Seventy.

General Conference, ‘ Apart, but Still One,’ October 2017 “In the Church, in spite of our differences, the Lord expects us to be one! He said in the Doctrine and Covenants, “Be one; and if ye are not one ye are not mine.” As we all enter a meetinghouse to worship as a group, we should leave behind our differences, including race, social status, political preferences, and academic and professional achievements, and instead concentrate on our common spiritual objectives.” –– Joni L. Koch (more…)

August 17 – John 8:44; “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (more…)

Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”

salt lake mormon temple 2We’ve received many e-mails over the years from people (mostly Mormons) asking why we dig up so much past history, and our answer is always the same. We don’t go out of our way searching for sensationalistic material, rather, we do this to inform. Granted, we do have a vested interest in the Church’s activities, and the internet has made it much easier for us while researching the history of the Church.

Today, however, we didn’t need to search around at all for the Church’s false prophecies. While reading through the latest Ensign Magazine, we noticed the Church has no problem in keeping the false prophecies front and center to keep the confusion going.

salt lake mormon temple 2New Era, ‘People on Other Worlds,’ April 1971; “A great many Christians today…have long since abandoned the doctrine that man was created in the image of God. …

Long before our God began his creations, he dwelt on a mortal world like ours, one of the creations that his Father had created for him and his brethren. He, with many of his brethren, was obedient to the principles of the eternal gospel. One among these, it is presumed, was a savior for them, and through him they obtained a resurrection and an exaltation on an eternal, celestial world. 8 Then they gained the power and godhood of their Father and were made heirs of all that he had, continuing his works and creating worlds of their own for their own posterity—the same as their Father had done before, and his Father, and his Father, and on and on.

The Son of Man

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, May 1992; “What is man?” asked the psalmist. (Ps. 8:4.) The answer: “[God] made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.” (Ps. 8:4–6.) It is, therefore, our responsibility to climb ever upward and to wear God-given crowns honorably. Young men, especially those of a “chosen generation” and “royal priesthood,” must understand that they are the spiritual offspring of God and that no one becomes in truth a man until he reverences the Father of spirits and allows inner powers to control his thoughts, words, and actions. (See 1 Pet. 2:9; Acts 17:28; Heb. 12:9.)” – Elder Carlos E. Asay, Presidency of the Seventy
