Galatians 2:16 “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

An article in the March issue of Ensign gave members a laundry list of mandates for true salvation. Their list of manmade works for salvation served as a stark reminder for us as Christians to always be on our knees for these dear people!

BYU Devotional, ‘Ordinances and Covenants: Gifts of Power, Peace, and Healing,’ 16 October 2018 “Our covenants help us in every aspect of our lives. We are good people. We do good things. We lift others even though, at times, we may need lifting ourselves. We have faith and stand as witnesses of God. We have patience and are kind. Yet, we can still grow in these Christlike characteristics. Faithfully living our covenants lifts us from being good people to being better people, and from better people to the best that we can be, even like our Heavenly Father.” — Randy Parkinson (more…)

Conference Report, ‘The Coming of Elijah,’ April 1965, p.113  “Unless the family of the righteous are thus sealed together from father to son and from mother to daughter back to Adam and from Adam to Christ and from Jesus Christ to God the Eternal Father, the purpose of earth life has been missed, and life itself has been a waste….

We must be linked to them, and they to their fathers and mothers back to Father Adam and Mother Eve, and they to Jesus Christ, and he to God as his Only Begotten Son in the flesh. Thus to save our own selves and to complete our own salvation, we must have our hearts turned to our fathers, seek out their identities, and perform the work of salvation for them. We will be held accountable for their blood unless we do so.” – Theodore M. Burton ~ Assistant to the Twelve; Quorum of the Seventy (more…)

September 20 – John 7:14-17; “Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?  Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.  If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” (more…)

1 Corinthians 1:18-20 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Journal of Discourses 21:39 “Salvation, in its largest aspect, consists in the proportion of truth received; men and women only are saved in proportion to the truth which they appropriate. An ignorant man will only obtain the salvation which belongs to the ignorant.” – Henry W. Naisbitt, Salt Lake City, November 23, 1879 (more…)

The following three LDS references show why Mormonism is not a Christian organization. Two of the quotes below are twisted plagiarisms of God’s word, and the third is a brazen contradiction of what Jesus proclaimed during His earthly ministry. (more…)

Today’s post is a little different than our usual fare. I read a post on a favored Facebook page, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t bring attention to what this said. PLEASE, visit Mormon & LDS Facts FB page! You’ll be blessed by all their hard work in showing numerous resources of how the Church operates.  (more…)

January 4 –– Jesus, or Joseph – who’s your Messiah? John 4:19-26 “The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.”

The Visiting Teaching Message for the month of October is titled Enfolding with Love Those Who Stray.

The message encourages those who have loved ones who have left Mormonism to love them and to speak to them kindly, and not speak to them in anger, or harshly. My first thought was, if the Church members need to be reminded to do this, then they have bigger problems than someone leaving the Church.

New Era, ‘Answers to Common Questions,’ March 2015; “Do you ever feel unprepared when people ask you questions about the Church? Here are some suggestions for how you might answer a few frequently asked questions. …

Why do you have other scriptures? Isn’t the Bible enough? …

The Bible gives us much, and other scriptures give us even more. God has revealed His word in the Bible. We believe He has also revealed His word in other scriptures. This doesn’t mean we think any less of the Bible, though. In fact, the other scriptures help us know that the Bible is true by giving us additional witnesses of it. All scriptures are proof that Heavenly Father loves His children and gives them what they need to follow His plan. Additional scriptures help clarify some things that otherwise might be misunderstood or misinterpreted.”

 I’ve chosen to write this month’s Visiting Teaching Message on Carol F. McConkie’s General Conference talk titled, ‘The Beauty of Holiness’.

In her talk, she said;

“Holiness is in the striving and the struggle to keep the commandments and to honor the covenants we have made with God. Holiness is making the choices that will keep the Holy Ghost as our guide. Holiness is setting aside our natural tendencies and becoming “a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord.” “Every moment of [our lives] must be holiness to the Lord.”

1 John 5:14-15; “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”

General Conference, ‘The Soul’s Sincere Desire’, October 2016

It was a sad day earlier this week, and the reason why stems from ‘The Talk of the Week’ the Church posted on its front page of their website.

carol-f-mcconkie-ldsorg-articleLDS Relief Society President, Carol F. McConkie, delivered a speech at General Conference earlier this month titled ‘The Soul’s Sincere Desire’. We’re taking a look at it since they’ve highlighted it in their talk of the week, so here we go! If you’d like to read her speech in its entirety, click on the highlighted link above. For today’s purposes, we’ve simply pulled a few quotes to examine, and see if they’re biblically sound.

“We pray to our Heavenly Father and Him only because He is “God in heaven, who is infinite and eternal, from everlasting to everlasting … , the framer of heaven and earth, and all things which are in them.” As our Creator, He gave commandments that we “should love and serve him, the only living and true God, and that he should be the only being whom [we] should worship.”8

Psalm 42:1-2; “To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. 2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”

general_conference_crowd_outside-2015A beloved Christian hymn was modeled after the biblical passage above. I remember finding the passage not long after the day of my salvation and was shocked to see how God could speak the deep inner feelings of my heart. Endearing me even more to it was the discovery someone had made it into a song. The wonders of a Christian life never ends!

These are the things we’re praying will be part of a Mormon’s life!

2 Chronicles 7:14; “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

general-conference-womens-session-line-temple-sept2016 I learned years ago the God of the Bible answers prayers. I first learned this while sitting in a prayer meeting a pastor of mine used to hold on Thursday nights at 7:14 p.m. He based it on 2 Chronicles 7:14, and gave examples of how God had answered not only prayers for the salvation of his loved ones, but prayers of others in the congregation as well.

It was at that time I began applying the same scripture to this ministry.
