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…)

Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever.  A-men.”

 Today we’re looking at one of the ways Joseph Smith confused people.

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”. 1 Timothy 2:5

 Our post today is to bring attention to what God says in His word about the priesthood. We’ve listed what Brigham Young said about it, and compared it to truth.

We found a great explanation of the priesthood at GotQuestions.org we think will bless all those who read it! We pray you’ll share the info with a Mormon you know. This has to be one of the saddest lies this church tells.

There’s absolutely nothing we can do to earn our salvation, and we have to ask – which drop of Jesus’ blood wasn’t enough? (more…)

Gospel Principles, p. 277 “Blessings of Exaltation … They will have everything that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have—all power, glory, dominion, and knowledge (see D&C 132:19–20). President Joseph Fielding Smith wrote: “The Father has promised through the Son that all that he has shall be given to those who are obedient to His commandments. They shall increase in knowledge, wisdom, and power, going from grace to grace, until the fulness of the perfect day shall burst upon them” (Doctrines of Salvation, comp. Bruce R. McConkie, 3 vols. [1954–56], 2:36; italics in original).” (more…)

February 17 – JST Bible Didn’t Fix KJV ‘Flaws’. 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.”

“Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 46:8

The Seer, p. 224 “God is a God of truth, and cannot lie without violating the great perfections and attributes of his nature, which if he should do, his power and glory would cease, and other Beings who are filled with all the fullness of his attributes, would succeed in his place. But God knowing all things, and loving righteousness and truth with a perfect love, it is impossible for him to violate the great unchangeable principles of his nature. (more…)

The Gospel through the Ages, p. 115 “When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the Gospel—you must begin with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation. But it will be a great while after you have passed through the veil before you will have learned them.” — Milton R. Hunter, 1945 (more…)
