“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 26 – Bloodline of Joseph and Jesus. “Neither give heed to fables or endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.”  1 Tim. 1:4.

 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.”

Today we’re taking a look at what the LDS Church has peddled at doorsteps around the world. It’d be laughable if not for the untold tragedies left in its wake.

If you’re LDS, we pray the info here gives you pause. Ask yourself why there are so many variations to Joseph Smith’s story that came straight from Smith himself. These aren’t made up ‘anti-Mormon’ stories, rather, these are firsthand accounts of what he said happened in a grove of trees.

If someone showed up on your doorstep with so many contradictions about a major life event, would  you believe them?

When I was a member  of the Church I always thought I was just confused again, or mistaken about things I was taught. After I left, I realized I had a pretty good memory after all…

The following synopsis of events is so confusing it’d make the most confident person stop, and wonder what they just read. It’s amazing they have young folks barely out of puberty, telling the oft repeated story of another youngster in a grove of trees. (more…)

 There are a number of reasons faithful members of the LDS Church should question Joseph Smith’s first vision. His so-called chance meeting with God, and Jesus in human form while praying in the ‘sacred grove’ raises many questions. Today we’re looking at a few of those.

By no means is this an exhaustive look at Mormonism. The topics listed simply come from questions/comments on our FB page, and LAM blogs.

In all sincerity, we pray Mormons will think about the following contradictions and reject what their church is doing…

“Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.” Jeremiah 14:14

 The late prophet, Joseph Fielding Smith, boldly stated the Church must stand or fall on Smith’s story. He further proclaimed his uncle was either divinely called, or was one of the biggest frauds of this earth.

Today we’re looking at just one example of the fraud this man committed, and how leaders since that time continue to perpetuate his lies.

1954

Doctrines of Salvation 1:188 “CHURCH STANDS OR FALLS WITH JOSEPH SMITH. Mormonism, as it is called, must stand or fall on the story of Joseph Smith. He was either a prophet of God, divinely called, properly appointed and commissioned, or he was one of the biggest frauds this world has ever seen. There is no middle ground.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1954-1956 (more…)

“Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth”. Deuteronomy 5:8

Also see Exodus 20:4; Deuteronomy 4:15-16, 19; Habakkuk 2:18, and Leviticus 26:1 for more examples of ‘graven images’.

The Lord’s instructions to the Israelites have been abundantly clear. Don’t worship other gods, and don’t make images thereof. In spite of God’s direct orders, and extravagant patience with mankind, history has proven there’s been anything but obedience.

The narrative from the days of the Exodus, and OT takeovers of Israel, bare out explicit examples of cause and effect. The Golden Calf incident with Aaron, and people worshiping Asherah under trees in Jerusalem weren’t on God’s list of wholesome activities. Eventually God had seen enough in all the examples we read.

 Christian Churches Hatched in Hell

Journal of Discourses 6:176 “Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth.” – Brigham Young

In the 1830’s Americans were in the infancy stages of the public education system; the majority of Americans were part of the agricultural economy; four times as many immigrants came into the country in that decade than the previous one; Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain were all born in the early to mid 1830’s, the Alamo took place, and TX became a state (1836); and notably the song, Jesus Loves Me was written in 1837 by Anna Warner.

In addition to these significant events another person who added to the course of history would write a religious book some referred to as the “Golden Bible”.

Eighteen-thirty is the year J. Smith published the first edition of the Book of Mormon, and formed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to Smith a handful of major events had taken place in the previous years, causing him to act upon the revelation he said God had given to him.

The most incredible ‘revelation’ is in the Pearl of Great Price under Joseph Smith Testimony. In it he claims he went to a grove in the forest to ask God which church he should join, and God appeared in the flesh with his Son Jesus Christ.

They went on to tell him not to join any of the churches because they were all wrong, and had become the “Whore of Babylon”. (more…)
