Jude 24-25; “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”

Think back to the time you were first saved. Do you recall how everything seemed new, and words of the Bible jumped off the page, demanding your immediate attention?

Like everyone else who becomes a believer, I couldn’t get enough of what the Lord had written 2,000 years earlier. My thirst for wanting more of Him seemed insatiable at times as I poured over epistles, gospels, and accounts of what took place marking the beginning of time.

Those first impressionable months left an indelible mark on my life, and Jude 24-25 happens to be one of the passages I read that stopped me in my tracks.

By simply reading my bible, I soon learned everything I knew in my 30 years of life was a lie. The more I studied, the more shocked I became by reading what God said about Himself, and what history revealed. One of those shocks came from Jesus’ half brother, Jude.

Five words from his epistle stood out as an announcement by declaring his brother’s true identity. It left no room for personal speculation, and yet provided a world of wondrous awe for God’s mercy. It also served as a confirmation I had done the right thing by leaving my once beloved heritage behind.

Prophets of God

The Restored Gospel

Ensign, Nov. 2009, 37; “In many ways the gospel of Jesus Christ is like a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. When Joseph Smith came on the scene, perhaps 100 pieces were in place. Then Joseph Smith came along and put many of the other 900 pieces in place so that people could say, ‘Oh, now I understand where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going.’ As for Joseph Smith’s role in the Restoration, the Lord defined it clearly: ‘This generation shall have my word through you’ (D&C 5:10).”

Bible, Many Errors and Contradictions

Answers to Gospel Questions 2:161; “”No Man Hath Seen God at Any Time”—a Mistranslation.  No Bible student today believes that the Bible has come down to us in its perfect and original appearance in the manuscripts. Scribes left out words and phrases, just as we do at times in typing, missing one whole line and thus changing the meaning. Moreover, the scribes added or interpreted according to their own opinions at times. These things are quite generally understood. Therefore we find errors and contradictions in the Bible.  There are too many passages which declare very definitely that God did appear, “face to face,” with his ancient servants. Therefore, passages which declare that no man has seen him, must be in error.” – Joseph Fielding Smith, Jr.

It is not the work of God that is frustrated, but the work of men:

You may not know it, but the phrase above comes from the inspired writings of Doctrine and Covenants. You will find that line of scripture in D&C 3:3.  It reads once again, “It is not the work of God that is frustrated, but the work of men.”
