General Conference, ‘The Blessing of Continuing Revelation to Prophets and Personal Revelation to Guide Our Lives’, April 2020 “…the Church of Jesus Christ owes its origin, existence, and direction for the future to the principle of continuous revelation.

 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”.

I encourage those who are serious about knowing true Utah Mormonism to read their entire  speech, and show the Mormon with demonstrative evidence, why God highly disagrees with all of it.

General Conference, ‘The Holy Ghost,’ April 1974, 90 “Jesus referred to the Holy Ghost as a male person. Speaking to his disciples, he said:

“… It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” (John 16:7. Italics added.) …

“That the [Holy Ghost] is capable of manifesting Himself in the form and figure of man,” wrote Dr. James E. Talmage, “is indicated by the wonderful interview between the Spirit and Nephi…” … (more…)

Hebrews 1:1-2 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds”.

 If you visited the front page of the LDS website earlier this week. you couldn’t have missed the obvious. The Church has brought new meaning to ‘Follow the Prophets’ with their latest in-house ad campaign.

The upper left corner shows a picture of an elderly man (Thomas Monson) who looks like he couldn’t harm a fly. On the bottom right is another seemingly innocuous image; this time it’s someone holding a smart-phone.

70-yearsGeneral Conference, ‘A Choice Seer Will I Raise Up.’ October 2016;“Perhaps the most stunning passage in the Book of Mormon to young Joseph may have been the third chapter of 2 Nephi. This chapter contains an ancient prophecy about a “choice seer” whom the Lord would raise up in the latter days—a seer named Joseph, named after his father. This future prophet would be “esteemed highly” and would do a work “of great worth” unto his people. He would “be great like unto Moses” and would be given “power to bring forth [God’s] word.”15 Consider how Joseph Smith must have felt as he realized that this prophecy was about him! He was not just translating history; he was translating a vision of the last days, of the miraculous Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ—and Joseph himself would help fulfill it!” – Craig C. Christensen

General Conference, “Joseph Smith,” October 2014; “Many of those who dismiss the work of the neil-l-andersenRestoration simply do not believe that heavenly beings speak to men on earth. Impossible, they say, that golden plates were delivered by an angel and translated by the power of God. From that disbelief, they quickly reject Joseph’s testimony, and a few unfortunately sink to discrediting the Prophet’s life and slandering his character.

During the first weekend of October Mormons all around the world will gather together in their homes and church buildings to watch General Conference. During the conference they’ll hear from various church leaders as well as their prophet. The messages they hear will be on many things, but I know for certain they won’t hear a message like the one Todd Friel gave here.

Mormons are so caught up in the do, do, do of their religion and achieving their own righteousness that they’ve completely missed the point of why Jesus came in the first place. I wish every Mormon could hear the true gospel message of grace, and being saved after nothing they can do.

Are you lacking Christian assurance?

For the past five years I’ve prayed for the salvation of those who are trapped in the Mormon religion. I’ve thought about what it would be like for the prophet to get up and deliver a message like the one below. To call all the church members to repentance, and to say that the church is going to abandon all its past sins, arrogance, and beliefs for Jesus and from here on after the members are to put their complete trust in Him alone.
