“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1

General Conference, ‘Closing Remarks’, October 2019 “We know the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will bring hope and joy to people who will hear and heed His doctrine. We also know that each home can become a true sanctuary of faith, where peace, love, and the Spirit of the Lord may dwell.

Of course, the crowning jewel of the Restoration is the holy temple. Its sacred ordinances and covenants are pivotal to preparing a people who are ready to welcome the Savior at His Second Coming. Presently we have 166 dedicated temples, and more are coming.” — Russell Nelson [emp. added] (more…)

Doctrine and Covenants 130:3 “Items of instruction given by Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Ramus, Illinois, April 2, 1843.” …

“John 14:23—The appearing of the Father and the Son, in that verse, is a personal appearance; and the idea that the Father and the Son dwell in a man’s heart is an old sectarian notion, and is false.” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 26:279 “Our organization is admitted to be without a parallel; and this through a mere boy.

But the fact is, he was not the author, neither did he ever claim its authorship; he was merely the honored instrument under God to reveal it to and institute it among men. And although the press and the pulpit unite in denouncing him as a crazy fanatic and a vile impostor, his work challenges the admiration of the best thinkers of the age. (more…)

General Conference, ‘Love Your Enemies’, October 2020 “An essential part of loving our enemies is to render unto Caesar by keeping the laws of our various countries. Though Jesus’s teachings were revolutionary, He did not teach revolution or lawbreaking. He taught a better way. Modern revelation teaches the same:

“Let no man break the laws of the land, for he that keepeth the laws of God hath no need to break the laws of the land.

“Wherefore, be subject to the powers that be” (Doctrine and Covenants 58:21–22).

And our article of faith, written by the Prophet Joseph Smith after the early Saints had suffered severe persecution from Missouri officials, declares, “We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law” (Articles of Faith 1:12).” — Dallin Oaks (more…)

“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.” 1 Timothy 4:7

 The LDS Church claims that in 1847 Brigham Young declared, ‘This is the place’, meaning the Church had found its new forever home in the western end of the Rockies known as the ‘Wasatch Front’.

From the onset of their arrival, the truth about their polygamous ways were preached from the pulpit. Along with the false prophecy of the ‘New and Everlasting Covenant’, came other false prophecies.

Today we’re looking at the anniversary of Brigham’s infamous explanation, and his addition to Joe Smith’s false prophecy of planets, stars, and the moon’s inhabitants. (more…)

July 9 – Resting in the good. Phil 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

June 30 – Example of a false prophecy. 2 Peter 2:1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”

2 Nephi 9:41 “O then, my beloved brethren, come unto the Lord, the Holy One. Remember that his paths are righteous. Behold, the way for man is narrow, but it lieth in a straight course before him, and the keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name.” (more…)

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

 This year the Church’s dogged determination in denouncing Jesus while exalting Joseph was painfully obvious. From the dozen or so talks we’ve read from the April 2020 conference, it’d be impossible not to notice the imbued theme of their pseudo gospel message. We have yet to read anything solely focused on the Lord’s crucifixion, or His subsequent resurrection. For what it’s worth, there were 35 talks.

We’ve pulled a few more talks to compare with God’s word that you can read below.

As always, don’t forget to pray for Mormons to denounce the false god of Joseph Smith!

 February 21 –Self Proclaimed Prophet-hood. God warns us about false prophets in Deut. 13:6-9 “If thy brother, the son of they mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou has no known, thou, nor thy father; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him…”

 The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, pp. 455-456 “There are other spectacular revelations mentioned. …. Then came John the Baptist who had been beheaded by the king in a moment of weakness… [then] Peter, James and John now resurrected. So there came, step by step, a restoration of everything, and it all came by revelation, by vision, by dreams, or by deep impression.

So revelation came: sometimes with actual personal appearance of heavenly beings…. But most of the revelations of the Prophet Joseph Smith in this holy record, the Doctrine and Covenants, did not come in that manner. They came as deep impressions.” — Spencer W. Kimball [emp. added] (more…)

 Faith of a Scientist, p 23 “A prophet is wonderful because he sometimes speaks for the Lord. This occurs on certain occasions when the Lord wills it. On other occasions, he speaks for himself, and one of the wonderful doctrines of the Church is that we don’t believe in the infallibility of any mortal.” – Apostle Henry Eyring

As an FYI, in updating some of our articles, I was reminded of this one that’s always been one of my favs. We pray members of the Church will take notice as they build their to-do lists during the holidays.

Jesus is the Only Way

By Melissa Grimes

      I recently come upon this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley:

 “Just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men, and in so doing became our Savior, even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple, become as saviors to those on the other side who have no means of advancing unless something is done in their behalf by those on earth” (“Closing Remarks,” Ensign, November 2004, 105).

     The idea that we have the power to save someone, in the eternal sense is blasphemy. We don’t have the power to do that, only Jesus does. You don’t need someone to do Masonic temple rituals for you in the LDS temple.

 October 29 – Isaiah 43:10-11 “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”
