We posted the following article in 2015, but they still haven’t denounced this idolatrous teaching!

If you’re LDS, is this what you expect from your leaders?

Daily Journal of Abraham H. Cannon, April 15, 1894, v. 18, p. 70; “Father [George Q. Cannon] now spoke of the unfortunate condition of the people at present in regard to marriage…. ‘I believe in concubinage, or some plan whereby men and women can live together under sacred ordinances and vows until they can be married…. such a condition would have to be kept secret, until the laws of our government change to permit the holy order of wedlock which God has revealed, which will undoubtedly occur at no distant day, in order to correct the social evil….’

– Pres. Snow. ‘I have no doubt but concubinage will yet be practiced in this church, but I had not thought of it in this connection. When the nations are troubled good women will come here for safety and blessing, and men will accept them as concubines.’
– Pres. Woodruff: ‘If men enter into some practice of this character to raise a righteous posterity, they will be justified in it…’” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:44 “These principles seem to be clearly understood, and in them the people are apparently fully indoctrinated; and though men may deny the faith, in one sense, and turn away from the path of righteousness, and dissolve their connection with the Church, yet they will cling, in most instances, to what we term the first principles of the Gospel of Christ; and it is a very rare thing to see those who have been members … turning away and joining what we call sectarian churches. If they leave this Church, it is an exceedingly difficult thing for them to connect themselves with other denominations, because the Scriptures are so familiar to them…” – George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, December 5, 1869 (more…)

1 John 2:19 “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.”

Today’s post stems from two things.

1.I found this speech in the Journal of Discourses Index under the title ‘Mormon Doctrine Conforms to the Bible’. I found it to be a good example of how the Church confuses people by using God’s word to fool them.

2.A post on our Facebook page from a Mormon asked me why I can’t leave the Church alone. George Cannon’s speech is a great example of why.

FYI:  My apologies for its length. Quickly scan and save the parts you find most useful. We feel this is of such vital import, it mustn’t be overlooked, and Christians should take heed to the dangerous way this church operates. The tactics employed by Mr. Cannon are in full use today. Proof is found in the missionary knocking on your door.

This speech in its entirety could easily be considered a book because of how lengthy it is. I’ve trimmed it considerably by pulling some of statements therein. To read it in full, see link below.

Journal of Discourses 22:260-269 “President Cannon having read the whole of the 12th Chapter of the Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, said: It is a blessed thing for us who live in this day and age to have records in our midst which have come down from olden times…as containing principles of life and of salvation…In this respect the chapter which I have read from this book is of priceless worth…

Then, why pray tell, has the Church rejected God’s word? Articles of Faith #8. (more…)

Journal of Discourses 26:186 – 187 “If it were possible for the Lord Jesus to descend from the mansions of glory and take possession of a mortal tabernacle, and be born of a woman in the shape of an infant, is it not equally possible that we all did the same? …

The Bible proves to us that Jesus existed with the Father, and that He descended from His high estate in the regions of glory to become a mortal man…Now, is there anything difficult or incomprehensible in the thought, that we all in like manner, existed with the Father, and with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, before we came here? ” – George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, September 28th, 1884 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 21:72-73 “The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever. This is the cornerstone, it may be said, of our faith. It is upon this foundation we have built…he is today as he was yesterday and as he ever was, and that he will continue to be the same being as long as time endures or eternity continues.” – George Q. Canon, Salt Lake City, October 5th, 1879 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:54; “The Lord permitted the enemies of the Kingdom of God to take away the life of His servant Joseph, as He did of His servants in ancient days. The blood of the testator was shed, and now the testament is in full force. Joseph had lifted up his voice in solemn warning to the inhabitants of the earth, and declared that God had spoken in these latter days. But his blood and that of other holy men and Saints was shed by wicked men…” – George Quayle Cannon, Salt Lake, December 5, 1869

Christianity and MormonismOver the past few weeks we’ve received a lot of e-mails and/or comments on our blog and site expressing disdain for the work we do at the ministry. Some have been nice, which is always great!mailbag

My response to rude comments is this –

Why should Christians stand by and listen to the comments without defending the work God gave us to do?
