The Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 2; “To this end God created man to live in mortality and endowed him with the potential to perpetrate the race, to subdue the earth, to perfect himself and to become God, omniscient and omnipotent” – Spencer W. Kimball
The Seer, p. 153; “God loves the children of men according to their works, or according to the good qualities which He perceives in them those who do the best he loves the best if they do equally well, He loves them equally.
Man should be exercised with the same principle; he should judge in righteousness of the good qualities and desires of his family, and should love those the best who do the best.
And if any of his family err, he should still love them the same as God loves his family, though they may sometimes err and go astray. God loves his family, not for their errors and sins, but because He sees that there are good qualities existing in them, and trys to save them from their sins; so man should love his wives, not because of their errors and imperfections, but because God has given them to him, and because they, in the main, desire to do right; therefore, he should love them and try to save them from their errors; and he should never love one. more than another, unless they merit it.” – Orson Pratt
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
You have to hand it to that Orson Pratt fellow. While 100% of his prophecies and theories on life were wrong, he was the only one in the Mormon hierarchy who actually came right out and said what everyone else already knew.
The Mormon god is only going to love and accept you with the same amount of effort you put out. If you find yourself coming up short in the patience department, so does he. If you’ve sinned more than you should have yesterday, you’re going to find yourself further down on the totem pole of acceptance today.
Why would an omnipotent, omniscient God only love people when they obey? Is this the type of god you want to worship? If you’re a parent, is this how you love your own children?
“Since truth is the only meaningful foundation upon which we can make wise decisions, how then can one establish what is really true?” – LDS Apostle Richard G. Scott, 2007
The statement above by Mr. Scott would be admirable if only he’d live up to it. Indeed, how wise it’d be, not to mention believable, if he and the other well dressed men in Salt Lake would tell the truth. The latest essay put out by the Church is a stunning example of how they don’t practice what they preach.
One of the Church’s new essays, ‘Mother in Heaven’, is only six paragraphs long. As a matter of fact, the footnotes section is pregnant with more information than the actual montage of lies they tried to pass off.
February 16 – Origin of Man. 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.”

Key to the Science of Theology, pp. 95-96; “He is an intelligent being, in the image of God, possessing every organ, attribute, sense, sympathy, affection that is possessed by God Himself.
But these are possessed by man, in his rudimental state, in a subordinate sense of the word. Or, in other words, these attributes are in embryo, and are to be gradually developed.
They resemble a bud, a germ, which gradually develops into a bloom and then, by progress, produces the mature fruit after its own kind. The Gift of the Holy Ghost adapts itself to all these organs or attributes.

January 27 – Council of gods. Isaiah 40:12-13; “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?”
