 February 17 –  Why Didn’t JST Bible Fix KJV’s Mistakes? Genesis 1:26-27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image,  after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

January 15 — Fertility Goddess Ashtoreth, LDS Heavenly Mother Compared. Today ask the Mormon in your life for their opinion about their Heavenly Mother. Then ask if they’ve ever heard of Ashtoreth. Be sure you explain with demonstrative evidence (Bible and a dictionary) who this false goddess was, and why Israel was always in trouble for worshiping her. Without being judgmental towards them, ask if they see the correlation between their Heavenly Mother and Ashtoreth. To get a clear idea of who the Mormons believe she is, see our article ‘Heavenly Mother’

Also see an article Ed Decker and I wrote on the reality of what heaven would be like for anyone wanting to become a god or goddess. The Making of Mormon Spirit Babies.

Finally beloved, pray for these dear people and lovingly share the truth with them!

Judges 2:13 “And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.” 1 Kings 11:5; “For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.”

_____

Mormon Doctrine, p. 40 “Ashtoreth (Ashtaroth)…See BAAL (BAALIM), FALSE GODS. As Baal was the supreme male deity of the Phoenician and Canaanitish nations, so Ashtoreth (Ashtaroth) was their supreme female deity. She was the so-called goddess of love and fertility, whose licentious worship pleased Israel in her apostate periods…”

Answers to Gospel Questions 3:142 “The fact that there is no reference to a mother in heaven either in the Bible, Book of Mormon or Doctrine and Covenants, is not sufficient proof that no such thing as a mother did  exist there…. does not common sense tell us that we must have had a mother there also?”

­­­­­­­ January 9 – Mormon Godhood Status is Polytheism. Titus 1:15-16 “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.” (more…)

God was Resurrected

Doctrines of Salvation 1:76 “Now what is a spiritual body? It is one that is quickened by spirit and not by blood. Our Father in heaven and our Savior and all those who have passed through the resurrection have physical bodies of flesh and bones, but their bodies are quickened by spirit and not by blood, hence they are spiritual bodies and not blood bodies.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

Ensign, ‘A Champion of Youth’ November 1987 “Women are endowed with special traits and attributes that come trailing down through eternity from a divine mother. Young women have special God-given feelings about charity, love, and obedience. Coarseness and vulgarity are contrary to their natures. They have a modifying, softening influence on young men. Young women were not foreordained to do what priesthood holders do. Theirs is a sacred, God-given role, and the traits they received from heavenly mother are equally as important as those given to the young men.” — Vaughn J. Featherstone (more…)

Isaiah 44:6 “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”

New Era, ‘Why don’t we know much about our Heavenly Mother?’, March 2017 “We know that we have both a Heavenly Father and a Heavenly Mother. This knowledge appears to have originated with Joseph Smith and has been repeatedly reinforced by inspired teachings of Church leaders over the years.

However, beyond the existence of a Heavenly Mother and the role of our Heavenly Parents in working together for the salvation and exaltation of their children, no further details about Heavenly Mother have been revealed.

For now, we know enough to understand that we are children of Heavenly Parents, who want us to become like Them…It shows us that gender is part of our eternal identity and that men and women cannot be exalted without each other. And those are rare and precious truths in themselves.” (more…)

‘And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.’ John 17:3

 While looking for a reference of a quote I read, I came across a set of images on LDSQuotations.com I just couldn’t ignore.

Their website is an encyclopedic work filled with images, and quotes from a variety of sources. While the majority are LDS, you’ll also find quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr., and C.S. Lewis. The Church’s fascination with Lewis has always puzzled me, but that’s for another day…

What caught my attention was a row of five images; each depicting a different topic. The images for baptism, and beauty were rather benign. The other three; balance, baptisms for the dead, and becoming like God, reflects true Mormonism instead of the cookie-cutter visual most people have about this church. (more…)
