March 29 – Power. Hebrews 7:26-28 “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.”

Disaffected Mormons are expected to “doubt their doubts” and overlook the mistakes of LDS leaders

By Helen Radkey

She wrote asking them if she could see their financial statements since other Christian churches readily provide this information at the public’s asking and I’m posting their reply to her here. Needless to say my friend was taken aback at their response and I have to agree with her! Not sure why or even how they can do this if they’re a charity, nevertheless they do.
