‘Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers…’ 2 Corinthians 6:14

TEMPLE MARRIAGES NOW HAVE NO WAIT TIME

TEMPLE MARRIAGES NOW HAVE NO WAIT TIME

Earlier this week the Church announced a major change to temple marriage policies. On May 6, 2019 their newsroom declared the elimination of a one year waiting period to be sealed eternally in a temple ceremony. See Couples Married Civilly Now Authorized for Immediate Temple Marriage for more info.

Today we’re looking at what they said, and comparing it with the Bible.

In part, the announcement started off by stating —

‘The new policy sets a single global standard for Latter-day Saints around the world. The Church has observed this practice for many years in more than half of the countries where the worldwide faith resides. In those countries, couples are required by law to marry civilly first.’

Today we’re looking at an article a friend (Melissa B.) alerted me to via Fox News who reported on an interview Wendy Nelson provided. You can also read this on Mormon.org. Ironic isn’t it that they’d keep the URL?

When Melissa told me about this I almost choked at the choice of words Mrs. Nelson used. Saying the prophet is unleashed reminds me of Revelation 20:7 when God says Satan will be loosed from prison. We’ve pulled a couple of statements from the article ~ to read the full article, see link below. (more…)

2014 NazarethHow a colt fulfilled scripture. Zechariah 9:9f; “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

Matthew 21:6-9; “And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, 7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strewed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.”

Mormon Newsroom IconChurch News, ‘1492 Voyage Fulfilled Prophecy,’ September 26, 1992

Looking at the title of this newsroom announcement would lead one to believe there’s hard proof Columbus’ voyage fulfilled a prophecy. Right?

Wrong.

This church news announcement has to be one of the most insidious things I’ve seen from the Church. It’s filled with deliberate attempts to confuse people like my mother, and cause overall false hope about something that didn’t happen to begin with.

We’re listing a review on key elements from this announcement, followed by our questions about this whole thing. The entire ‘prophecy’ is listed thereafter.

Anyone serious about the Lord has to wonder…Why would the leadership of a ‘God fearing’ church say things like this??????

Luke 17:2 “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

stickman thinking 3Why?

I think this is the one question I’ve asked and been asked more times than any other question in my 20+ years of experience in ministry.

It doesn’t matter what topic you choose within Mormonism to discuss or explore – that one question always makes an appearance. And I do mean always. Today’s example is no different.
