Doctrines of Salvation 2:67; “FAMILY UNIT CONTINUES ONLY IN CELESTIAL KINGDOM…We believe that the family will go on. I get a great deal of comfort out of the thought that if I am faithful and worthy of an exaltation, my father will be my father, and I will be subject to him as his son through all eternity; that I will recognize and know my mother and she will be my mother in all eternity; and my brothers and sisters will be my brothers and sisters for all eternity; and that my children and my wives will be mine in eternity. I don’t know how some other people feel, but that is a glorious thought to me. That helps to keep me sober.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

Isaiah 45:5; “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me.”

canaanite-sex-gods The well known Mormon phrase ‘families are forever’ has been a mantra of those in the Church for generations now. Most members, however, aren’t aware their heavenly father is a remake of the ancient Canaanite sex gods we read about in the Bible.

While visiting another website a couple of weeks ago, Melissa took a double take at the conversation posted on their site. They were discussing a book written by the late apostle, John A. Widtsoe titled ‘Rational Theology’. Mr. Widtsoe left little to the imagination in his interpretation of whom they worship.

flowers-cartoon-8This month’s message teaches us about the importance of eternal families, the role they will play in eternity, and touches on how The Fall made it all come together.

Mormons are all about the earthly, biological family we all have, and keeping those families intact throughout eternity. “Families are Forever” is one saying they like to use to reel people into the Church, because if the Church is all about the family then it must be approved of by God, right?

flowers-cartoon-8The Visiting Teaching Message in August focuses on church members nurturing their families.

Anytime I hear Mormons talk about the importance of families, or recall their old commercials that ended with the line “families it’s about time” (remember those?), I shake my head in disgust and disbelief because I know that’s not what they truly believe.

Conference Report, October 1942, p. 12-13Council-Heaven-Mormon; “PARENTHOOD…Amongst His earliest commands to Adam and Eve, the Lord said: “Multiply and replenish the earth.” He has repeated that command in our day…His people should marry only in His temple in accordance with such ordinances.

The Lord has told us that it is the duty of every husband and wife to obey the command given to Adam to multiply and replenish the earth, so that the legions of choice spirits waiting for their tabernacles of flesh may come here and move forward under God’s great design to become perfect souls, for without these fleshly tabernacles they cannot progress to their God-planned destiny…

By bringing these choice spirits to earth, each father and each mother assume towards the tabernacled spirit and towards the Lord Himself by having taken advantage of the opportunity He offered, an obligation of the most sacred kind…

No parent can escape that obligation and that responsibility, and for the proper meeting thereof, the Lord will hold us to a strict accountability…

Motherhood thus becomes a holy calling, a sacred dedication for carrying out the Lord’s plans…

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 14:244-245; “Perhaps you may think that Brother Pratt is rather enthusiastic and fanatical in his ideas to suppose thatOrson Pratt immortal beings can multiply; but I would ask any person who has read the first and second chapters of Genesis if the command which was first given to multiply was not given to two immortal beings who had not yet fallen? If, therefore, two immortal beings, were then commanded to multiply, why should it be thought incredible that immortal beings who are raised from the grave and restored to all that which Adam and his wife possessed before the Fall, should have the power to do the same?” — Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, August 20, 1871

Mormon Decisions 10New Era, ‘The Temple What It Means To You,’ April 1993;

“Temple ordinances are valid for eternity…

One sweet LDS girl was asked by her father to postpone her marriage in the temple so he could provide a lavish wedding in a large church that all his friends could attend. She said, “Daddy, I can’t do as you ask. I have seen how you and Mom have loved each other, and yet you have not married in the temple. I made up my mind as a little girl that I would be married to my husband for eternity and not just for this life. You have had my whole lifetime to prepare to go to the temple with me, and you have not done so. I’m sorry, but I must do what I believe to be right.”…

Brigham’s Uncertainty

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 16:70; “I do not know that I shall have a wife or child in the resurrection. I have never had any thoughts or reflections upon this, or cared the first thing about it. All that I have had in my mind has been that it was my duty to do the will of God, and to labor to establish his kingdom on the earth. I do not love, serve or fear the Lord for the sake of getting rid of being damned, nor for the sake of getting some great gift or blessing in eternity, but purely because the principles which God has revealed for the salvation of the inhabitants of the earth are pure, holy and exalting in their nature.” – Brigham Young, Logan, Utah, June 28, 1873

salt lake mormon temple 2Journal of Discourses 21:296; “…If plurality of marriage is not true or in other words, if a man has no divine right to marry two wives or more in this world, then marriage for eternity is not true, and your faith is in vain, and all the sealing ordinances and powers pertaining to marriages for eternity are vain, worthless, good for nothing; for as sure as one is true the other also must be true.” – Orson Pratt, Salt Lake City, July 18, 1880
