“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

 TheChurchNews.com “One of Satan’s greatest lies is that men and women cannot change and should not change. However, in order to be authentic to “our real, true selves, as sons and daughters of God with a divine nature and destiny … then we will all need to change.” …

Humility and faith in Jesus Christ are requisites to accessing the enabling power of His grace, which makes it possible to overcome all obstacles, all challenges and all weaknesses. (more…)

‘They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.’ Titus 1:16

 Joseph Smith: The Choice Seer, Parting the Veil, Part III “…no one has been permitted to pen more of what his ancient counterparts saw and add to what they were shown than the Prophet Joseph Smith. We know of no man in the earth’s history who has done more to extend the faith and expand the mind of mortal men than Joseph the Prophet-whose very name means “he who gathers” and “let him add.” – Joseph Fielding McConkie (more…)

 February 22 – Mormons Want to be Saviors for the Dead Romans 1:19-20; “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”.

 The Continuous Atonement “Just as a man does not really desire food until he is hungry, so he does not desire the salvation of Christ until he knows why he needs Christ. No one adequately and properly knows why he needs Christ until he understands and accepts the doctrine of the Fall and its effects upon all mankind” —Brad Wilcox, 2009 (more…)

Mormonism and the Negro, p. 20 “We believe that God is our Creator, that He is an all-wise God, that He is concerned about the eternal welfare of all His Children, one as well as another. We believe that He is all-powerful, and controls in the destiny of mankind and all that pertains to it. We further believe in the concept of eternal progress: that as man is God once was, and as God is, man may become. (May become, not necessarily will become, for that would not make allowance for free agency. We may become like God, or we may become like Satan, or we may become something in between these two extremes.).” — John J. Stewart (more…)

Ensign, ‘A Book with a Promise,’ May 2008 “The Book of Mormon is a book with a purpose. From the title page we read that the Book of Mormon was ‘written by way of commandment’ and ‘by the spirit of prophecy and of revelation’ to ‘come forth by the gift and power of God’ to the convincing of each of us ‘that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God.’ In a personal expression of this purpose, Nephi, as one of the authors of the Book of Mormon, wrote, ‘The fulness of mine intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and be saved’ (1 Nephi 6:4).” — Craig C. Christensen (more…)

 Promptings of the Spirit, p. 96 “…in D&C 9:9 the Lord says that if a wrong thought is being pursued, there will be no feeling of rightness, but instead, a stupor of thought, and that the stupor of thought “shall cause you to forget the thing which is wrong.”

Actually it is the Spirit which causes the stupor of thought and the forgetting. That means that the Spirit really is present, but works within us like ebbs and flows, presenting and subtracting feelings and thoughts. Thus, stupor of thought is not a true condition of the Spirit being absent.” — Errol R. Fish, 1990 (more…)

Scrapbook of Mormon Literature, p. 536-542 “The UNKNOWN GOD REVEALED…Our Modern Altars to the Unknown God…It is a painful and confusing thing to the Christian investigator to be convinced, as he must be, by the fact that millions …are kneeling “To the Unknown God.”

One cannot say how many professed Christians really have a conscious knowledge of the God whom they reverence and whose Son they believe Jesus, the Christ, to be. But one may know without much inquiry that very few of our Christian churchmen have what we may be allowed to call “a working knowledge of God.”…They have simply apprehended that “there must be a God”…

Your appeal for the restoration of “the old time faith in a personal and known God” impels us to respond to your editorial by offering you the very faith for which you so earnestly contend. …We offer you the “old time” Faith which has been restored to the earth, with all the principles, gifts, powers and authority of ancient times. …And what more, we ask you candidly, and earnestly, to aid us in this revival of the “old time” Faith…that henceforth and forever may be lowered, both in and out of the churches, the countless thousands of altars erected to the “unknown God.” — Ben Erastus Rich (more…)

General Conference, ‘Found Through the Power of the Book of Mormon,’ October 2019 “In order to progress toward true conversion, converts to the Church must experience the power of the truths contained in the Book of Mormon. … Each person is invited to allow the power of the truths of the Book of Mormon to find and embrace them once again. …

In order to progress toward true personal conversion, all converts must “experience and be found by the power of the truths contained in the Book of Mormon.” They must also make a serious commitment to God to strive to keep His commandments.” — Rubén V. Alliaud, General Authority Seventy (more…)

At first glance, a talk by one of the Church’s GA’s (Terence Vinson), seemed rather blasé as I skimmed over the contents. Upon my reading of it the second time, the numerous falsehoods became rather glaring.

This talk covered all the bases, if you will, for all the ‘isms’ you could possibly use showing how wrong Mormonism can be.

In it you’ll find contradictions, plagiarisms, anachronisms, and your everyday lies about salvation. The man who gave this talk is Mr. Terence Vinson, a General Authority in the ‘Presidency’ of the Seventy. He graduated with a Masters of Finance from Sidney University. As usual, for the sake of brevity we’re only looking at a couple of the key items. For more info, see General Conference, ‘True Disciples of the Savior,’ October 2019. One thing’s for certain, the man needs serious prayer, as do those who listened to him. Here we go!

“When the Savior and His gospel are the framework around which people build their lives, they can feel enduring joy. In Australia, the term “fair dinkum” means people are what they say they are — essentially, they do what they mean and they go “all in” when they say they are committed.

In the game of rugby, players find the greatest enjoyment of the game when they play their hardest and give their all by playing their best. The same is true in life and with the gospel. “Giving our all doesn’t mean that we will be continually enveloped in blessings or always have success. But it does mean that we will have joy.””

“…Whom do men say that I am? 28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets. 29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.” Mark 8:27b-29

Our topic today is based on an article I read in the September 2019 Liahona Magazine (‘Resilience—Spiritual Armor for Today’s Youth’.)

As a reminder, their target audience is the late-teen, and young adult Church members. For the sake of brevity, we’re simply looking at a few comments we’ve pulled from the article written by Lynn Robbins.

For those who aren’t aware, Mr. Robbins has served in a number of LDS General Authority positions. He was recruited, if you will, from the business world where he was one of the founding members of the Franklin Institute (now Franklin Quest).

Seeing as how his previous vocation was in business time management, one might think his article might reflect his expertise, alas, it didn’t come close. Mr. Robbins main concern seemed bent on finger-pointing, and the ever-present LDS blame game.

Ironically, Mr. Robbins’ keen sense of business savvy didn’t include making time to study false teachers. Neither did he admit to the real reason they’re experiencing an unprecedented high number of early missionary releases. (more…)
