 November 13 – Forsaking Jesus for Personal Gain.

Answers: Straightforward Answers to Tough Gospel Questions, pp. 215 – 216; “There is an important point in all of this, Elder,” I said. “Never let anyone outside the Church tell you what the Church teaches. You were sent out to teach, not to be taught (see D&C 43:15). The doctrines of the Church will always come to you through the channels that the Lord ordained, and the Lord didn’t ordain anti-Mormon literature as one of those channels.” – Joseph Fielding McConkie

Mormon Decisions 10Joseph Smith: The Choice Seer, Chapter 25; “Revelation, the Prophet taught, was to be immediate and personal. We have no right, he explained, to lay claim to promises made to another people in another time. As their curses are not our curses, so their promises are not our promises (see Ibid., p. 12). “Reading the experience of others, or the revelations given to them, can never give us a comprehensive view of our condition and true relation to God. Knowledge of these things can only be obtained by experience through the ordinances of God set forth for that purpose. Could you gaze into heaven five minutes, you would know more than you would by reading all that ever was written on the subject.” (Ibid., p. 324; emphasis in original.)” – Joseph Fielding McConkie, Also see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 324

Mormon Decisions 10Seeking the Spirit, p 88; “In our day three fundamental truths are essential to a valid testimony: first, that Jesus is the Christ; second, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God; and third, that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true and living church on the face of the whole earth. All valid testimony must embrace the spiritual witness that Jesus is the Christ, for “there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God.” (2 Nephi 31:21.)”. – Joseph Fielding McConkie

salt lake mormon temple 2Glossary of Symbolism, pg 251; “Ancient of days. Name-title for Adam, “the first and oldest of all, the great, grand progenitor” (D&C 27:11; Smith, Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Joseph F.
