Reading what Oswald Chambers had to say about communion with God, compared to what the LDS Church had to say is striking.

Today we’re looking at Oswald Chambers’ devotion for January 7th, followed by a few of the comments from the First Presidency Message of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When you have time, be sure to share this with the Mormon you know!

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, Classic Edition, January 7th

“Have I been so long with you, and yet hast thou not known Me? — John 14:9

The title of our post today was the subject of one of Henry Eyring’s speeches at General Conference this past weekend. We pulled this from the Salt Lake Tribune’s article on some of the Conference highlights. You can read the Trib’s entire article at God Picks Mormon Leaders and He Never Gets It Wrong Eyring Says.

Check out a couple of the questionable things he had to say this time. We’ll highlight the speeches of Uchtdorf, and other leaders in the upcoming few days. Here we go with Eyring’s thoughts!

 Psalm 101:7; “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.”

 General Conference, ‘Gathering the Family of God,’ April 2017; “Today is April 1. Two days from now, April 3, marks 181 years from the day when Malachi’s prophecy was fulfilled. On that day, Elijah did come, and he gave to Joseph Smith the priesthood power to seal families eternally (see D&C 110:13–16). From that day to this, interest in exploring one’s family history has grown exponentially. …

Why is all of this happening? For lack of a better term, we call it the “spirit of Elijah.” We could also equally call it “fulfillment of prophecy.” I bear testimony that Elijah did come. The hearts of the children—of you and me—have turned to our fathers, our ancestors. The affection you feel for your ancestors is part of the fulfillment of that prophecy. It is deeply seated in your sense of who you are. But it has to do with more than just inherited DNA. …This is the work of our generation, what the Apostle Paul called “the dispensation of the fulness of times,” – Henry B. Eyring

Deuteronomy 28:66; “And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life”.

 General Conference, ‘This Day,’ April 2007; “It is hard to know when we have done enough for the Atonement to change our natures and so qualify us for eternal life. And we don’t know how many days we will have to give the service necessary for that mighty change to come. But we know that we will have days enough if only we don’t waste them.” – Henry B. Eyring

John 1:11 “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”

FIRST PRESIDENCY MESSAGE, ‘Peace in This Life,’ December 2016

sacrament_1825232-1-lds-orgA cursory glance over the latest ‘First Presidency Message’ would cause anyone to be heartbroken.

The theme this time around was about partaking of the Lord’s Supper.

The image on the left was the central focal point, where they tried selling the story about ‘a promise of personal peace’ that’s available ‘for all of His disciples today’.

The LDS apostle, Henry Eyring, also included oft repeated stories of people receiving this peace even while dying, and how it was made available through ‘priesthood blessings’.

I was left wondering how someone’s story of receiving a ‘priesthood blessing’ would be of benefit to my mother over the holidays. With no disrespect, I have to say, my mother isn’t dying. This devotional message was more about the priesthood of man, than about the eternal priesthood of Jesus!
