 General Conference, ‘The Book,’ October 2014; “The leaders did not set the requirements for exaltation. God did!” – Allan F. Packer

Ok, before we look at Mr. Packer’s comment let’s see what Mormons mean by “exaltation”.

The Gospel Principles manual defines exaltation this way:

“Exaltation is eternal life, the kind of life God lives. He lives in great glory. He is perfect. He possesses all knowledge and all wisdom. He is the Father of spirit children. He is a creator. We can become like our Heavenly Father. This is exaltation.”

Leviticus 22:32-33; “…I am the Lord which hallow you, 33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord.”

Osiris – ‘a principle god of ancient Egypt, god of vegetation and water, king of the dead’.

may-pole-dancing-at-payson-temple-celebration Thousands of Youth Sing, Dance at Payson Temple Cultural Celebration

Throwing caution to the wind in June 2015, the Mormon Church celebrated the grand opening of another temple in Utah; Payson, Utah to be exact.

It reminded us of the ceremonies they held for the Philadelphia Temple opening. Oh, be still my heart…

As part of this over-the-top, all out party for their god, the Church used their kids to put on one of the grandest road shows we’ve seen in quite some time. It’s highly doubtful the majority realized what they were doing, but make no mistake beloved, it was a blatant display of paganism at its finest.

templeAs of late, the LDS Church is building temples at a record pace. According to their site they now have 155 operating temples, and 25 others in various stages of construction. Another page gives the reason why they build so many temples. Here in part, is what they said –

‘From the days of the Old Testament, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples-sacred structures where He could teach, guide, and bless them.’ See ‘Why We Build Temples’.

January Witnessing Tip of the Day January 31 – The true meaning for Mulek in the Book of Mormon is demon god. However, here’s the Book of Mormon’s definition: Mulek was the land in the north God prospered and appointed. Mulek was a son of Zedekiah. Helaman 6:10.

1 Corinthians 3:16; “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

gospel-teaching-and-learning-handbook GOSPEL TEACHING AND LEARNING: A HANDBOOK FOR TEACHERS AND LEADERS IN SEMINARIES AND INSTITUTES OF RELIGION PREPARING TO TEACH

Today we have a question about an instruction listed in an LDS teaching manual.

We’re also praying diligently all Mormons will come to know they can find the truth by opening their bibles. By doing so, they’ll see how the Jesus of the Bible can’t be the Jesus of Mormonism, and that obviously goes for God’s Holy Spirit as well!

January Witnessing Tip of the Day January 22 – Everlasting burnings. What is it? Who goes to everlasting burnings and why? Isaiah 33:12, 14. “And the people shall be as the burnings of lime…the sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites.  Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?  Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

brahma-god-bbc-ukThe other day I was notified that I had received a comment on the website pertaining to an article I had written a while ago about Yoga. A Mormon woman, who’s very much into this shared with me what she believes are benefits of yoga.

As I read over her comment, and attempted to formulate a response I discovered that I couldn’t do it justice with only a few short sentences.  I felt that it needed more, so here’s my open response to her.

 Exodus 32:3-6, 8; “And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. 4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD. 6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

philadelphia-temple-opening-ceremonyWhen Moses and Joshua returned to camp with the second set of Tablets of the Testimony, they found fellow Israelites patiently waiting, which was a far different scene than the one Moses had come upon the first time he had trekked up Mt. Sinai.

Although they were behaving this time around, consequences for their past would carry a heavy toll.

Isaiah 45:6; “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.”

Orson PrattToday we’re doing things a little differently – woo-hoo!! The title of this article is a good  example of how LDS doctrines lead people away from the Lord, instead of to Him.

Reality of heaven for a Christian goes something like this: after death a Christian goes to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus, and it’s there they’ll be able to see family and friends who are also saved.

For the Mormon, it’s complicated. After death they’ll expect to go to heaven to be with their spouses, and in the scenario Orson Pratt has proposed, that one couple will begin ‘multiplying their species’. They’ll continue to do this until they’ve given birth to enough children to sufficiently populate an earth like this for the extent of time their planet is in existence.

John 1:3; “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

galaxy-teachingsCheck out our new page we’ve dubbed ‘Galaxy Teachings’! You’ll be able to find a ton of info for the sermons the Church has given on outer space (scary!), to what their beliefs are about the earth’s creation, which is even scarier – yikes! You can read it in full here, but also be sure to check out the new page on the right side bar later today.

Some teachings ad doctrines of the Church have defied logic, yet no one has called the leadership on tnheir erroneous beliefs to hold them accountable. Simply put, in the light of eternal things, this is absolutely tragic, and horrifying!

Mormons are taught they must abide by the counsel of their leaders without question, and most unfortunately, have done just that. Trust is a commodity in life that’s earned so we’re wondering why many in the Church have thrown caution to the wind, and ignored the warning signs there’s something seriously flawed in the teachings being delivered from those pulpits in Salt Lake.

Isaiah 6:1; “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”

temples-01As you probably figured out, today we’re looking at temples! Our objective is to look at why our Lord said we shouldn’t have more than one temple at a time, and examine the Church’s use of them.

As of September 16, 2016, the LDS Church reported having 151 temples in operation, which means they have 151 too many. Making matters worse, there are sixteen others awaiting completion.

The BoM tells us the Nephites operated several temples at a time, which was in total defiance to God.

Alma 16:13; “And Alma and Amulek went forth preaching repentance to the people in their temples, and in their sanctuaries, and also in their synagogues, which were built after the manner of the Jews.”

Adding insult to injury in their defiance against the Lord, one of their apostles made the comment temples are the stopping point between man and heaven.

“The temple is a point of intersection between heaven and earth. In this sacred place, holy work will be performed through selfless service and love. The temple reminds me of all that is good and beautiful in the world.” – David A. Bednar

The SeerThe 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.

Question:

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

LDSThe 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.
