 January 16 – In Genesis we find the account of when man came to be. Genesis 1:26 says; “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…”

As Christians we believe the Scriptures to be the infallible Word of God – theopneustos. It is literally God breathed. If the Bible is from God Himself, how can Mormons believe what Smith had to say here?

Smith taught our souls are eternal. In the Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 352 he said; “Where did it (man’s soul) come from? All learned men and doctors of divinity say that God created it in the beginning; but it is not so: the very idea lessens man in my estimation.”

 December 5 – Corrupt Leaders Then and Now.   Zechariah 11:4-6a “Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.”

Matthew 23:1-4 “Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”

 Doctrine and Covenants 128:18 “I might have rendered a plainer translation to this, but it is sufficiently plain to suit my purpose as it stands. It is sufficient to know, in this case, that the earth will be smitten with a curse unless there is a welding link of some kind or other between the fathers and the children, upon some subject or other—and behold what is that subject? It is the baptism for the dead. For we without them cannot be made perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect. Neither can they nor we be made perfect without those who have died in the gospel also; for it is necessary in the ushering in of the dispensation of the fulness of times, which dispensation is now beginning to usher in, that a whole and complete and perfect union, and welding together of dispensations, and keys, and powers, and glories should take place, and be revealed from the days of Adam even to the present time. And not only this, but those things which never have been revealed from the foundation of the world, but have been kept hid from the wise and prudent, shall be revealed unto babes and sucklings in this, the dispensation of the fulness of times.” (more…)

Who Came First – God or Man?

 Gospel Through the Ages, p. 104 “Mormon prophets have continuously taught the sublime truth that God the Eternal Father was once a mortal man who passed through a school of earth life similar to that through which we are now passing. He became God—an exalted being—through obedience to the same eternal Gospel truths that we are given opportunity today to obey.” – Milton Hunter

1 Corinthians 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of God.”

Today we’re doing things a little differently – woo-hoo!

A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a good friend, Melissa Brown, who’s participated in comments on our blog. Her heart was burdened with the news she read about the late Ravi Zacharias and wanted to know if she could say something about it on the blog.

Melissa had two major concerns about the news she read –

1.Christians should be warned about the lifestyle he lied about and hid for numerous years.

2.Mr. Zacharias’ lifestyle was a close reflection of Joseph Smith’s. In light of how the Church welcomed Ravi into the SL Tabernacle, Mormons should also be alerted to the wily ways of these two men.

After prayer and our exchanges, I’ve no doubt her article will prove valuable to those who read what she has to say!

With Love in Christ –—

Jesus in the Book of Mormon and the LDS Church

With Easter just around the corner, we thought it’d be a good reminder to show the truth about the Jesus of Mormonism. We originally posted this in 2011.

Our intent in posting these things isn’t to ridicule or bash the Mormon people, rather, it’s to inform both the Christians, as well as the LDS people.

As is usually the case, I stumbled across something interesting in the Book of Mormon while looking for something else.  This time I was reminded of what the Nephites thought of Jesus and His skin color in 3 Nephi 19:30;

 “And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were white, even as Jesus.

 How can this be you ask?  Yeah, well you might want to hold that thought so you can ask the same question about all the things they say about Jesus.  So this got me to thinking…is there a concise list of all the things Mormons are taught about Jesus?

I remember being a Mormon and being confused about the truth. I wanted so badly to know Him, but didn’t know how or even where to look.  Each time I read my MIA or Relief Society manuals to compare them with the Bible, I kept getting more and more confused. I couldn’t keep the stories about Him straight and often wondered where the atonement took place and when. (more…)

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

Pearl of Great Price Student Manual, p. 10 “Moses 1:40–41. Moses Was Assigned to Write about This Earth In addition to his calling to free the children of Israel from Egyptian bondage, Moses was given the assignment to write about the events that occurred from the Creation of the earth until the final days of his own mission. The first five books of the Bible contain the writings of Moses. However, some of the truths Moses recorded in those five books were removed from the Bible by wicked men who altered the biblical text (see 1 Nephi 13:24–28; Moses 1:23). By revelation, the Prophet Joseph Smith restored many truths that were lost (see 2 Nephi 3:6–15; Moses 1:41).” (more…)

“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…)
