John 1:3; “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

galaxy-teachingsCheck out our new page we’ve dubbed ‘Galaxy Teachings’! You’ll be able to find a ton of info for the sermons the Church has given on outer space (scary!), to what their beliefs are about the earth’s creation, which is even scarier – yikes! You can read it in full here, but also be sure to check out the new page on the right side bar later today.

Some teachings ad doctrines of the Church have defied logic, yet no one has called the leadership on tnheir erroneous beliefs to hold them accountable. Simply put, in the light of eternal things, this is absolutely tragic, and horrifying!

Mormons are taught they must abide by the counsel of their leaders without question, and most unfortunately, have done just that. Trust is a commodity in life that’s earned so we’re wondering why many in the Church have thrown caution to the wind, and ignored the warning signs there’s something seriously flawed in the teachings being delivered from those pulpits in Salt Lake.

1 John 2:29; “If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”

salt lake mormon temple 2Today we’re examining questionable comments (a-hem, lies) the LDS Church told in a commentary for one of their standard works; the Pearl of Great Price. The irony in this writing, and those of other LDS authorities couldn’t be richer, and the longer we looked, the worse it got. Please, don’t forget to pray for them! Pray also other Christians will recall what John said in his epistle so they don’t get fooled into believing the lies.

The passage we’ve used is listed below, followed by a few questions and comments from the points we’re looking at today. The strange part about this is how they accused Satan of lying to Eve, yet they’re the guilty party. We’re not defending Satan mind you! We just wondering if they’re ever using the Bible…at all… As you read through this, see how many of their lies you pick up on.

BTW – this is one of the most demonic, outright evil things I’ve seen in Mormon writings to date. I shudder to think of the impact it will have on those who believe this.

Pearl of Great Price Commentary, p. 146; “The devil in tempting Eve told a truth when he said unto her that when she should eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil they should become as Gods. He told the truth in telling that, but he accompanied it with a lie as he always does. He never tells the complete truth. He said that they should not die. The Father had said that they should die. The devil had to tell a lie in order to accomplish his purposes; but there was some truth in his statement. Their eyes were opened. They had a knowledge of good and evil just as the Gods have. They became as Gods; for that is one of the features, one of the peculiar attributes of those who attain unto that glory—they understand the difference between good and evil.” (George Q. Cannon, Gospel Truth, 1:16.)” – Milton R. Hunter

salt lake mormon temple 2Key to the Science of Theology, pg 51; “A General Assembly, Quorum or Grand Council of the Gods, with their President at their head, constitute the designing and creating power. The motive power, which moves to action this grand creative power, is wisdom, which discovers a use for all these riches, and inspires the carrying out of all the designs in an infinite variety of utility and adaptation.” – Parley Pratt, LDS Apostle

February 28 – Matthew 16:13-16; “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptists: some, Elias; and other, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.  He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?  And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God”.

There have been and will continue to be many who call themselves “The Christ” or the only path to salvation.  In today’s age, we see Mohammed, the Jehovah Witnesses, and here we have the Mormon Church.  Make sure you know whom Jesus Christ is and watch out for the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Jedidiah M. Grant said in Journal of Discourses, Vol. 1. pp. 345-46; “The grand reason of the burst of public sentiment in anathemas upon Christ and his disciples, causing his crucifixion, was evidently based upon polygamy, according to the testimony of the philosophers who rose in that age.  A belief in the doctrine of a plurality of wives caused the persecution of Jesus and his followers.  We might almost think that they [Jesus and his followers] were Mormons.”

November 27 – Jude 1:21; “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

Today we’re looking at the word eternal to see what it means. The Greek word for eternal from this verse is; aioônios.  The transliteration for eternal from the Strong’s Concordance is:  “perpetual (also used of past time, or past and future as well):—eternal, for ever, everlasting, world (began).” 

So today ask your Mormon friend what his understanding is of this word when Milton Hunter and Joseph Smith says that God is eternal, yet he was once a man like us and then became a god himself.

“God Himself was once as we are now…It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the character of God, and to know that we may converse with Him as one man converses with another, and that He was once a man like us, yea, that God Himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did.”

Milton R. Hunter, The Gospel through the Ages, 105.

 The meaning of the word eternal from the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as found in the Gospel Link Dictionary; “Without beginning or end of existence.  The eternal God is thy refuge. Deuteronomy 33.”
