March 23 — The Greatness of God. Psalm 139:1-6 “LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.” (more…)

Zechariah 11:4-6b; “Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.”

John 14:6; “Jesus saith unto him: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

mormon_missionaries New Era, ‘Questions and Answers,’ February 1971;

“As I pray about a mission, the Lord says to me not to go.

“When should a young man not go on a mission?”

Answer/Elder Gordon B. Hinckley

In the first place a man does not initiate his mission call. In light of this, it is not his prerogative to choose or not to choose to go on a mission. His bishop and stake president recommend him, and he may state his desire to them. The call comes from the President of the Church, and the young man may then accept or reject it.”

Conference Report, October 1974, pp. 116-117; “…One obsession of this Church and all its members is missionary work… …if you receive a call from the Lord through your bishop and stake presidency, it is your privilege, but also your obligation, to fill that calling…Every boy in every country in all the world who has been baptized and received the Holy Ghost will have the responsibility of bearing the message of the gospel to the people of the world.” – Spencer W. Kimball

Matthew 5:9; “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

FIRST PRESIDENCY MESSAGE, ‘The Order and Will of God,’ January 1989

Gordon B. Hinckley“So many of us are prone to say we forgive, when in fact we are unwilling to forget. If the Lord is willing to forget the sins of the repentant, then why are so many of us inclined to bring up the past again and again? Here is a great lesson we all need to learn. There is no true forgiveness without forgetting.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

Also see:

D&C 58:42; “Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more.”

Gordon B. Hinckley boldly proclaimed none else but God Almighty came down to earth and told Joe Smith all of Christianity was wrong. He also asserted the entire church rests itself on the validity of this ‘glorious first vision’. It’s a dismal outlook on life if this is what the Church is banking on. His claim gives investigators many reasons to reject their church. There’s no less than eleven different versions of the first vision.

Why don’t they set their validity on Jesus?

 

General Conference, ‘What are People Asking about Us?,’ October 1998; “Our entire case as members of TheGordonBHinckley Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, rests on the validity of this glorious First Vision” (Also see Church News, Oct.
10, 1998, p.17).

Temple Symbols 29The other day we looked at Brigham Young’s last words, and it got me to thinking…scary I know!

What would be the lasting impression people would have of you after you’re gone? With General Conference wrapping up as I type this, I also wondered what some of the LDS prophets said to members at their last General Conference talks.

Mormon Decisions 10Church News, July 3, 1999, p. 3; “Our message is so imperative, when you stop to think about the salvation, the eternal salvation of the world, rests upon the shoulders of this Church. When all is said and done, if the world is going to be saved, we have to do it. There is no escaping from that. No other people in the history of the world have received the kind of mandate that we have received. We are responsible for all who have lived upon the earth, and that involves our missionary work. And we are going to be responsible for all who will yet live upon the earth.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

Luke 2:1-7; “And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Hear the Prophet’s Voice and Obey,” May 1995, p 15; “I give my testimony that the prophets of this day have the qualities of the prophets of old and the other prophets of this dispensation. Each of these prophets has humbly and prayerfully sought to know and follow God’s will in his personal ministry. We declare with soberness, and yet with the authority of God in us vested, we have a prophet today. The President of the Church, as a prophet, is God’s representative on earth and is appointed to lead His church. Christ is the head of his Church today, just as he was in ancient times. The Lord has said that this is ‘the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord, am well pleased’ (D&C 1:30).” – Apostle Robert D. Hales

Mormon Decisions 10Ensign, “Great Shall be the Peace of Your Children”, November 2000; “…the piercing of the body for multiple rings in the ears, in the nose, even in the tongue. Can they possibly think that is beautiful? It is a passing fancy, but its effects can be permanent. Some have gone to such extremes that the ring had to be removed by surgery. The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve have declared that we discourage tattoos and also “the piercing of the body for other than medical purposes.” We do not, however, take any position “on the minimal piercing of the ears by women for one pair of earrings”—one pair.” – Gordon B. Hinckley
