Proverbs 24:28 “Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; And deceive not with thy lips.”

TodayinMormonHistory.com; “175 years ago today – May 11, 1843 — Joseph Smith marries Emily and Eliza Partridge, youthful daughters of deceased church bishop Edward Partridge. They have been living in Joseph’s house as housekeepers and nannies. This is a second ceremony done with Emma’s permission. Emma had given Joseph permission to take plural wives and chose Emily and Eliza without knowing that Joseph had previously married them in secret. It is unclear that Emma knew exactly what was implied by the ceremony since Joseph later had to forcibly and secretly hold the door to Eliza’s room shut to keep Emma from finding them together. Emily later remembered that “Emma was present. She gave her free and full consent. She had always up to this time, been very kind to me and my sister . . .but ever after [the ceremony] she was our enemy.””  (more…)

2 Corinthians 9:7; “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

Historical records of the LDS Church reveal a contradictory message still implemented today. From the days of Joe Smith who initially complained about the ‘whores of Babylon’ offering salvation for money, to the latest General Conference the narrative is the same.

Joe Smith’s fiery brimstone sermons rang out across upper New England seaboard right in the middle of the 2nd Great Awakening. He complained Christianity had turned corrupt in its doctrines, thereby necessitating a ‘restoration of all things’.

Mormon 8:32; “Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say: Come unto me, and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins.”

We’ve received a few requests in the past couple of weeks for LDS tithing quotes, so we decided we’d compile a few of them for a handy reference page! As you’ll see in the quotes below, the Church’s doctrines are ambiguity at its finest. Their doctrines were taken from the pages of those Smith condemned.

We’ll add to our list as time goes on, so check back often for updates!

For future reference, we’ll be placing this on the right sidebar.

April 12 – Acts 3:19-20; “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you”.

March 27 – Judges 16:30 tells us about the final act of Samson’s strength the Lord God had supplied him with; there is no question no one lived as Samson did. “And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life”.

Leviticus 19:31; “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.”

While looking for a reference on something that has nothing to do with our topic today, I came across Bruce R. McConkie’s definition for ‘crystal balls’. As it turned out, I had also just read a portion of the Church’s Comprehensive History explaining how Smith had used peep stones he put in his hat to translate the Book of Mormon.

Long story short, check out the info I retrieved on our topic today. I have to say that I’ve always found it fascinating the Church never has a problem with providing how they went about tricking people. In many ways, it’s downright scary, and should give members pause as they read their own history.

In 1826 Joseph Smith was arrested for ‘glass-looking’, a form of fortune-telling, and at the time was illegal. For more info, see Joseph Smith’s Witchcraft, Scrying and Arrest 1820 – 1827.
