Isaiah 40:8; “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Bibles10As promised, here are some of the outrageous things LDS Authorities have said about various subject matters, and today we’re looking at how the Mormon Church regards the Holy Bible.

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how these men arbitrarily make the comments they do, and not feel any shame. Whenever I read their blasphemous statements my mind goes back to when I was a child, and believing everything that came out of my leaders’ mouths. I distinctly recall being told time and again, to read my Bible, and trust in Jesus. I truly believed them and did just as they directed me to do!

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, April 1973; “… [salvation] comes only through the Church itself as the Lord established it… Therefore it was made clearly manifest that salvation is in the Church, and of the Church, and is obtained only through the Church…If persons separate themselves from the Lord’s church, they thereby separate themselves from his means of salvation, for salvation is through the Church.” – LDS Apostle Mark E.

Mormon Decisions 10Moses: Man of Miracles, pg 8; “When did civilization start? It began with Adam, the first man, unusually well educated because the Lord was his teacher. (Moses 6.) It is admitted that there was retrogression among some of his family who apostatized and then left his well-ordered society…

Thus they became the cavemen and other early degenerates who some scholars now mistakenly believe were the first men. All of this differs but little from situations found among certain aborigines who live today in some parts of the world.

Both the caveman-type and the advanced man of our present culture still live today, as examples of the contrast between human retrogression on one hand and cultural advancement on the other. Since this is happening today, can anyone say that the condition did not also exist 5,000 or 6,000 years ago?” – Mark E. Petersen

salt lake mormon temple 2Today we’re taking a look at some of the context in Mark Petersen’s speech given at the Convention of Teachers of Religion on the College Level in Provo, Utah, August 27, 1954.

The reason I’m posting this part of the apostle’s speech is because of some comments and e-mails I’ve been receiving from angry members of the LDS Church lately.

salt lake mormon temple 2Gospel Principles, pg 203; “Complete honesty is necessary for our salvation. An Apostle of the Lord has said: “Honesty is a principle of salvation in the kingdom of God…. Just as no man or woman can be saved without baptism, so no one can be saved without honesty” (Mark E. Petersen, in Conference Report, Oct. 1971, p. 63; or

Ensign, Dec. 1971, p. 72).”
