 Today we’re looking at a speech Brigham Young delivered 158 years ago that’s still in effect today. Pray for all Mormons who believe his lies!


Pray for the Christian ministries with boots on the ground as we speak. Many have made the trip to last ‘Miracle in Manti‘ Pageant. This LDS production has been going on for decades now, but with Mr. Nelson’s directives, they’ve been eliminated.

Many Christians will go with tracts in hand, and witness to the thousands of Mormons who’ve turned this event into their yearly family vacation. Nestled in the hills of Utah, Manti is virtually unknown if not for the yearly pageants. The surrounding communities are swamped with polygamous families still in operation.

He was foreordained in eternity to preside over this last dispensation, as much so as Pharaoh was fore-ordained to be a wicked man, or as was Jesus to be the Saviour of the world because he was the oldest son in the family.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 9, 1859
