Today we’re looking at some of the nepotism that takes place in Mormonism. The family in question is the Snow family.

We thought it’d behoove our readers to know who’s who in the myriad of quotes we publish – so here’s a small sampling! (more…)

Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has tried once again to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. They’ve gone to extraordinary lengths using Gladys Knight in a full scale musical production to pat themselves on the back for allowing blacks into the priesthood 40 years ago. (more…)

Proverbs 22:6; “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

In my beloved Utah there’s a natural (albeit strange) phenomena called ‘Pando’,

 

It’s a small forested area with one big problem. The entire 106 acre Aspen forest grew from one root system. This means if one dies, they all die. There are no new saplings growing from dropped seeds. What trees there are, has grown by the sheer force of the underground root system spreading across the land. Scientists discovered it in the ‘60’s and have determined it’s about 130 years old.

In addition to Pando, a somewhat similar phenomena has taken over the Wasatch Front that originally took root on the eastern seaboard. Nepotism in the Church has been a long standing problem to everyone but those who belong to this human form of Pando. Making matters worse is the force behind the root system – blasphemy.

Isaiah 7:14; “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

With Easter right around the corner, we thought it’d be a good time to point out a few interpretations of His birth provided by the LDS Church compared to the word of God!

As you meet with your Mormon friends and loved ones in the upcoming glorious season, remember the following things are what Mormons believe about Him. Don’t pass up the opportunity to share the truth, and show with demonstrative examples what God says!

Nauvoo Roots of Mormon Polygamy, 1841 – 46, p. 9; “…According to the doctrine of celestial marriage, a woman who was “sealed” (married) to a man in a special religious ceremony was united to him and their children, not only for “time”—until death—but for eternity where they eventually could become gods. Implicit in the revelation was the requirement that a man and woman must accept the “principle” of taking plural wives—known as the law of Abraham—in order to gain the highest afterlife, the celestial kingdom. Just as Abraham, David, Solomon and other Old Testament patriarchs took “many wives and concubines,” the patriarchs and elders of the restored church could attain “crowns of eternal lives in the eternal worlds” and have descendants as “innumerable as the stars.” A woman’s salvation thus depended on entering into a polygamous relationship with a man of high status in the church, because such men were thought to have made the greatest progress towards godhood on earth.” – George D. Smith

In the next 24 hours the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will officially announce that 94 year old, Russell Marion Nelson, Sr., will be the 17th Prophet/President of the Mormon Church.

If someone wanted to look around for notable info on this elderly gentleman, you’d be sure to come across articles about his work as a cardiothoracic surgeon for which he gained a lot of attention and respect from the medical community worldwide. His achievements in the medical field were long, and varied before he was called to the hierarchy of the LDS Church.

???????????????????????????  Rejecting Jesus by debasing Him.  Zechariah 11:12-13b; “And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. 13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.”

Matthew 26:14-15; “Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.”

September Witnessing 2016September 26 – The Greatest Commandment Is To… Matthew 22:36-40; “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 . Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Idolatry is the action of demeaning God’s character by redefining who He is, and then passing the bogus information on to those around you.

 

flowers-cartoonThe title for this month’s Visiting Teaching Message is ‘Temple Ordinances and Covenants’, making the subject matter self-explanatory. However, before we dig in, let’s take a look at their subject matter a little more closely, along with the definition of idolatry.

Witnessing Tip of the Day April 2April 18 –  1 Timothy 6:3-4; “If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing.”

Nepotism in the Mormon ChurchIt’s been said that looking at pictures of the General Authorities in Mormonism is like looking at family reunion photos – not your family mind you, but of a family you probably don’t belong to. As time has waned on over the years, not much has changed in the Church’s selection of who’s next to fill the shoes of those in charge.

It’s a well known fact that if you’re not born in the family of the hierarchy, it’s a fat chance you’ll be called to serve the Mormon heavenly father in an upper echelon of servants. Be that as it may, we looked at the newest members in the coveted apostle position to see what, if anything, had changed…

Long story short – not much.

wedding rings 3From the inception of Mormonism itself there’s been controversy. Joe Smith’s unconventional lifestyle was laden with numerous events the majority of people either never thought of before, or outright shunned.

Ignoring or shunning Smith always brought the same reaction; outrage. If you weren’t supportive of his antics, you were labeled a heretic, or an ‘anti’. Fast forward two hundred years, and the story is pretty much the same, with the exception of one thing. Many church members are now backing off the list of excuses for early Utah polygamy because of historical evidence. (more…)

salt lake mormon temple 2“I desire to share a few thoughts about a basic doctrine of the Church. What I say is boyd-k-packerbased on these convictions:

First: instruction vital to our salvation is not hidden…
Second: every verse, whether oft-quoted or obscure, must be measured against other verses…

Next: there is a consistency in what the Lord says and what He does…
Fourth: not all that God has said is in the Bible…

Divided Kingdom of IsraelWhen I left Mormonism, I had little to no knowledge about the kingdom of Israel’s history. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. I knew Israel was in the Middle East and that was about the sum of it.

Making matters worse, what I thought I did know was wrong. All of it; i.e. Jesus being born in Jerusalem v. Bethlehem (Alma 7:10).

So today we’re having a little history lesson to clear things up. As you’re well aware, Mormonism teaches one thing, and the Bible another. We’re taking a quick look at what a couple of well respected Mormons have taught in the book they wrote we’ve mentioned below to compare it with God’s word!

LDS General Conference October 2015Today’s post is on the summary of what Mormons can expect to hear at General Conference this weekend, October 3-4, 2015.

Somehow their insights still surprise me, even though I know they shouldn’t. The leader of their primary conference talked about the so-called divine nature everyone is endowed with, and with no apologies she compares this divinity within mankind with God’s love. Yikes!

Mormon Decisions 10Ah, the ever popular Moroni 10:4 verse Mormon missionaries like to use with promising converts… While the intro for this may seem light-hearted, the subject matter is anything but.

By and large Christians are a trusting group, and many times too much so. Taking people at face value, and thinking the best of others, too often Christians miss the tell-tale signs of danger lurking at the door. A few days ago we looked at the dangers of angels of light and our focus today is what they do to the flock.
