 General Conference, ‘The Marvelous Foundation of Our Faith,’ October 2002

 …They came, both of Them, that Joseph saw Them in Their resplendent glory, that They spoke to him and that he heard and recorded Their words—of these remarkable things we testify.
I knew a so-called intellectual who said the Church was trapped by its history.
My response was that without that history we have nothing.
The truth of that unique, singular, and remarkable event is the pivotal substance of our faith.  But this glorious vision was but the beginning of a series of manifestations that constitute the early history of this work.
As if that vision were not enough to certify to the personality and the reality of the Redeemer of mankind, there followed the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. Here is something that a man could hold in his hands, could “heft,” as it were. He could read it. He could pray about it, for it contained a promise that the Holy Ghost would declare its truth if that witness were sought in prayer….” – Gordon B. Hinckley [emp. mine]

John 4:14, 24; “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

visiting-teaching-message The Visiting Teaching Message for January 2017 focused on the purpose of the Relief Society while using three biblical passages.

Linda K. Burton, Relief Society General President, told members their purpose was to “prepare women for the blessings of eternal life”. That sounds interesting, however, nothing in the lesson explained what those blessings in the eternal bliss would entail.

joseph smith 3Originally, this article was published in 2011. While looking through our websites, I noticed it had mysteriously become attached to another article,Joseph Smith, Nephi and Moroni’. Yikes!

Long story short, we’re cleaning house, as they say! Today we’re republishing ‘Joseph and Lucifer Compared’ as its own little self in hopes it’ll clear up any confusion.

This article, ‘Joseph and Lucifer Compared’, was one of the first things I discovered after making the exodus from my beloved heritage. Personally, the discovery was a heart-breaker, and sent chills down my spine as I continued reading the evidence of what Smith had done. It became another proverbial nail in the coffin, as I began seeing Mormonism for what it really was, and is: demonically inspired evil.

Again, I want to make it abundantly clear, we don’t publish these things to be sensationalistic. Mormonism doesn’t need any showmanship added to its menagerie of doctrinal shockers. It does more than an ample job of that all on its own. Rather, we publish these things to inform both Mormons, and Christians alike. We pray it’ll open the eyes of those who don’t know, and help my people come to their senses the good Lord instilled them with. Here we go! (more…)

nauvoo-temple-burningRegardless of which side you’re on in the Joseph Smith saga, historical facts can’t change the outcome of the wake he left behind.

Nauvoo, Illinois laid in shambles as the Saints departed for the Rocky Mountains. Gone was the illustrious ideal of a Mormon utopia, and in its stead was a pile of burning embers from what used to be their beloved temple. That was until a tornado came through the valley, sweeping away any salvageable remnants or visible reminders of the town’s history.

November 20 – Hebrews 11:36-38; “And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.”
