Essential Truths—Our Need to Act “Just imagine how blessed we are to know that God is a being with a body of flesh and bones as tangible as ours, that we can worship a God who is real, whom we can understand, and who has shown and revealed Himself and His Son to His prophets—both prophets of old and prophets in these latter days. He is a God who hears and answers our prayers; a God who watches us from heaven above and is constantly concerned about our spiritual and temporal well-being; a God who gives us agency to decide for ourselves to follow Him and obey His commandments without coercion; a God who gives us blessings and allows us to face trials so we can grow and become like Him.” — Adilson de Paula Parrella (more…)

‘To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.’ Acts 26:18

The Bible verse above is our prayer for the Mormon people.

Today we’re looking at 3 quotes, and all have exhibited treacherous teachings. Each is a good summation of what they said in the talk they gave. To read their talks in full, click on corresponding links provided below.

Our main agenda with posting these things is to inform Mormons, and non-Mormons alike.

Please, pray for those who listened to these lies, and also for those who spread them. As we’ve been saying this week, if they’d turn to the Lord, they’d obviously turn from spreading lies about Him!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

1 Cor. 1:18

‘…upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ Matthew 16:18

Today we’re looking at two quotes from a couple of talks given by two women at General Conference a few days ago.

The two women are Lisa Harkness, and Michelle Craig. To read their talks in full, see links in the article for each.

As a heads up, the numbering system we’ve used doesn’t reflect the order talks were given at the conference.

We’re praying our Christian friends will stop to pray for those who gave the talks, and those who heard their blasphemy. It’s obvious those in charge are just as confused as ever.

At the end, everyone must answer the question Whom Will You Follow? Will it be Jesus, or Joseph?

 Isaiah 61:1-2c “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 …to comfort all that mourn”.

‘Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.’ 2 Corinthians 9:7

Ensign, ‘Concerning Tithing,’ June 1980

“First Presidency Message

Marion G. Romney

Second Counselor in the First Presidency

A Legal Obligation to the Lord

…tithing is a debt which everyone owes to the Lord as rent for using the things that the Lord has made and given to him to use. The Lord, to whom one owes tithing, is in a position of a preferred creditor. If there is not enough to pay all creditors, he should be paid first. You may be a little shocked by this statement, but it is true. …Protection Against the Burning

The payment of tithing is also worthwhile as fire insurance. …

“For after today cometh the burning … for verily I say, tomorrow all the proud and they that do wickedly shall be as stubble; and I will burn them up, for I am the Lord of Hosts; and I will not spare any that remain in Babylon…(D&C 64:23–25). … it will be a wonderful thing to have a record that you can rely upon to give you a place in the presence of our Father in Heaven with the righteous of all ages. This you can earn by observing faithfully day by day, and year by year, the law of tithing and the other requirements of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” [emp. added] (more…)

 There’s nothing in an article from the June Liahona to alert the unknowing the entire thing is filled with contradictions and lies. While the same can be said of everything in Mormonism, this particular article seemed to go out its way to be the poster child of deceit.

The article in question is ‘People of Galilee’. It listed 11 people from Jesus’ day and wants readers to imagine how these 11 people would’ve reacted to the miracles He performed. It’s quite surprising the Church would use so many examples from the Bible, and do so as a way of placing the Lord in a good light. Typically they briefly use His name, and activities to bolster the reason for their heretical doctrines.

Let me preface all that by stating I’ve never heard of the author (Breanna Call Herbert), and my heart hurts for her. I obviously don’t know if she’s aware of what she’s done, but be that as it may, the damage is done. (more…)

Our LDS reference today has brought me to my knees each time I read it. It came from a book written by Wayne and Leslee Boss, located in the Gospelink Program. You can also buy it online.

Are My Children Going to Make It? Real Help for Teaching the Gospel in the Home [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1991], ix, 63-64 “The purpose of this book is to provide parents with ideas about ways to both simply and enjoyably teach their children the gospel.

…The Prophet Joseph said that a prophet is only a prophet when he’s acting as such. How do you know whether the President of the Church is speaking as a prophet or as just a man?

“Son, I’ve found that if you apply two simple tests, you’ll never be deceived. First, the statement will be consistent with what’s taught in the scriptures. Second, the Spirit will bear witness to you that the doctrine is true. You have the right to receive a spiritual witness from the Lord about the truthfulness of any doctrine taught, regardless of the source. These are just two of the safeguards the Lord has prepared against deception.” …

When the prophet of the Lord speaks, children have a right to know that he is speaking for and in behalf of their Heavenly Father. That means that neither parents nor their children should ever find fault with the Lord’s prophet. …

Thus, parents who find fault with their leaders place themselves and their children in a very dangerous position. As Dallin H. Oaks explained, “The primary reason we are commanded to avoid criticism is to preserve our own spiritual well-being, not to protect the person whom we would criticize. (7)”” — R. Wayne Boss and Leslee S. Boss (more…)

“But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.” Hebrews 7:24

General Women’s Meeting, “If Thou Art Faithful,” November 1984 “God has given the women of this church a work to do in building his kingdom. That concerns all aspects of our great triad of responsibility—which is, first, to teach the gospel to the world; second, to strengthen the faith and build the happiness of the membership of the Church; and, third, to carry forward the great work of salvation for the dead. … We expect leadership, and strength, and impressive results …” — President Gordon B. Hinckley (more…)

Joseph Smith and the Messiah: Prophetically Linked “Prophets Aid in Redemption … These three prophets, Joseph of Egypt, Moses, and Joseph of the latter days, are linked to the Savior by their work in helping to redeem His children … Joseph of Egypt helped bring…salvation to his family who fled the famine in Canaan…Moses helped bring…salvation to the children of Israel by leading them out of bondage in Egypt…Likewise, the latter–day Joseph “in the Spirit of power” brought Israel “out of darkness into light . . . and out of captivity unto freedom…” — RoseAnn Brown, 2002 (more…)

 “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

While gathering notes for this article I was listening to praise music, and the song listed above repeated itself. It obviously caught my attention, thus its inclusion here!

The hymn serves as a good reminder of how we’re incapable of fulfilling God’s requirements for salvation! This upcoming holiday is an ever present reminder of how grateful I am for His mercy upon me.

Today we’re looking at three talks, and providing short quotes from each. Sadly, the quotes earned a place in our next installment, ‘Worst of the Worst’ list. Sigh…

Please note the numbering system we’ve used here is purely ours, and doesn’t reflect which order their talks were given.

Salt Lake Tribune “In a Thursday announcement, church leaders confirmed that children of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender parents may be blessed as babies — a tradition within the faith — and baptized without the need for approval from the faith’s governing First Presidency.

Couples in a same-gender marriage would also cease to be subject to automatic disciplinary action. “While we still consider such a marriage to be a serious transgression,” a church news release states, “it will not be treated as apostasy for purposes of church discipline. Instead, the immoral conduct in heterosexual or homosexual relationships will be treated in the same way…Sen. Derek Kitchen, D-Salt Lake City, the only openly gay member of the Utah Legislature, said…“The world is changing,” Kitchen said, “and the church is changing alongside it.”” (more…)

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…)
