General Conference, ‘Sisters in Zion’, October 2020 “You sisters … do not hold a second place in our Father’s plan for the eternal happiness and well-being of His children. You are an absolutely essential part of that plan. … Without you the plan could not function. Without you the entire program would be frustrated. … Each of you is a daughter of God, endowed with a divine birthright. …” — Henry Eyring (more…)

General Conference, ‘Waiting on the Lord’ October 2020 “… while we work and wait together for the answers to some of our prayers, I offer you my apostolic promise that they are heard and they are answered, though perhaps not at the time or in the way we wanted. But they are always answered at the time and in the way an omniscient and eternally compassionate parent should answer them. My beloved brothers and sisters, please understand that He who never sleeps nor slumbers cares for the happiness and ultimate exaltation of His children above all else that a divine being has to do. He is pure love, gloriously personified, and Merciful Father is His name. …

COVID and cancer, doubt and dismay, financial trouble and family trials. When will these burdens be lifted? The answer is “by and by.” And whether that be a short period or a long one is not always ours to say, but by the grace of God, the blessings will come to those who hold fast to the gospel of Jesus Christ. That issue was settled in a very private garden and on a very public hill in Jerusalem long ago.” — Jeffrey Holland (more…)

General Conference, ‘Ask, Seek, and Knock’, October 2020 “Recently a loved one said to me, “I believe personal revelation to be true. I believe the Holy Ghost will show me all things I should do. It is easy to believe when I feel my bosom burn with undoubting conviction. But how can I have the Holy Ghost always speak to me at this level?”

To my loved one and to all of you, I would say that I too would like to constantly feel those strong impressions from the Spirit and always see clearly the path to follow. But I don’t.

However, what we might feel more often is the still, small voice of the Lord whispering to our mind and heart: “I am here. I love you. Go on; do your best. I will support you.” We don’t always need to know everything or see everything. (more…)

‘For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that day.’ 2 Timothy 1:12

 Before we look at today’s text, take a moment to reflect on the Bible verse above, and keep it in mind as we look at what Mr. Jackson said at the last General Conference. We’re certain that if anyone calling themselves a Christian would remember Paul’s words, organizations like Mormonism would be non-existent.

As an FYI, we’re looking at just a portion of Mr. Jackson’s talk. The reason for this is because of the numerous lies he told. We’ve pulled a few, and addressed them to show how Christians can pray for, and use them as a witnessing tool. To read it in full, see link below.

Remember beloved, we’re not doing this to mock, or ridicule, the Mormon people! On the contrary, we do this because our hearts are broken for their predicament. We’re convinced they love Jesus, but it’s the wrong Jesus! Mr. Jackson’s words are in black, and our response is in red.

General Conference, ‘The Culture of Christ’, October 2020

The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that there is purpose in life. Our being here is not just some big cosmic accident or mistake! We are here for a reason. (more…)

General Conference, ‘Sustainable Societies’, October 2020 “Whether aware of it or not, every man, woman and child of every belief, place and time is imbued with the light of Christ and therefore possesses the sense of right and wrong we often call a conscience.” — D. Todd Christofferson (more…)

 Today we’re checking out two talks given at GC; one by Dallin Oaks, the other by David Bednar. As we’ve noted earlier, the main theme for this conference was addressing racism. However, true to form, they couldn’t miss the opportunity to throw in the obligatory false teachings.

4.Proving Oneself for Eternal Progression

General Conference, ‘We Will Prove Them Herewith’, October 2020 “…tests in the school of mortality are a vital element of our eternal progression. Interestingly, however, the word test is not found even one time in the scriptural text of the standard works in English.

Rather, words such as prove, examine, and try are used to describe various patterns of demonstrating appropriately our spiritual knowledge about, understanding of, and devotion to our Heavenly Father’s eternal plan of happiness and our capacity to seek for the blessings of the Savior’s Atonement. …The process of proving ourselves is a fundamental part of Heavenly Father’s great plan of happiness.” — David A. Bednar

General Conference, ‘Becoming Like Him,’ October 2020 “Becoming as Jesus Christ is will require changing our hearts and minds, indeed, our very character… By focusing deeply on one needed attribute, as you progress in obtaining that attribute, other attributes begin to accrue.” — Scott D. Whiting (more…)

The new proclamation represents a loving Father’s communication to His children.” — Quentin L. Cook (more…)

 The LDS Church announced their intention of building eight new temples at their last General Conference in October 2019. Today we’re looking at two of those choices, and in the next few days, we’ll look at a couple more.

Our reason for concern on the two we’re looking at stems from the Church’s choice of location, and what they said about the ‘help’ they’re giving to them. The two temples in question: Guatemala, and Papua New Guinea. We’ve listed the stats for each country below, along with a few questions! To read the Church announcement in full, see October 2019 General Conference News and Announcements.

In addition to the announcement of a new temple, at the end of the same month the Church also announced their donation of 100 beds to the hospital in Port Moresby. This is obviously a show to warm up locals to their presence, and gives future missionaries a foot in the door showing their concern for them. Here’s the reality of life regarding these two temples … (more…)

‘He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: But he that perverteth his ways shall be known.’ Proverbs 10:9

Integrity is a mighty hard commodity to come by for some folks. Case in point is what we’re looking at today. The LDS apostle, Dallin Oaks, gave a speech at their latest General Conference that spoke more of their same old ways than anything new, or revealing.

Note: As of Sunday, October 6 – Tuesday, October 8, the link for Mr. Oaks’ speech kept defaulting to a speech given by Jeffrey Holland. After repeatedly trying to get to the entire speech on their site, I’m giving up on that and only using their talk summary notes and link. Perhaps others will have a better time of it – ha!

For the sake of brevity, we’re only using a few things he said. To read their summary notes in full, see President Dallin H. Oaks: ‘Two Great Commandments’.

“God requires His children to obey His commandments because only through obedience, including repentance, can one return to live in His presence and become perfect as He is. … The Lord’s apostles are commissioned to teach nothing but truth. They cannot modify divine law.”

Oh dear, Mr. Oaks … (more…)

Today’s LDS reference is a classic example of the Masonic (aka, Mormon) rabbit trails this church takes members on when publishing news of their church.

Long story short, I’ve been retrieving info for Mormon symbols on a site well known for factual info on early temple symbolism. One of their articles caught my attention, thus its inclusion here.

At the April 1946 General Conference they published an article on the Church’s 100 yr. commemoration of the Nauvoo Temple. You’d think it’d be a straightforward thing, but no.

Church authority, Albert Zobell, reminisced about the original dedicatory prayer for the site just before the final group of Mormons left for Utah. Once again, the Church played the ‘woe-is-me’ game, and couldn’t resist reminding people in the 20th century they should pray for God to avenge earlier Saints. (more…)

Ephesians 1:20-22; “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church”.
