“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” Jude 24-25

There’s no doubt the Church busies themselves with the most mundane things in life. Taking time on a worldwide stage to announce they’ve modified temple interview questions is a good example of that! With deep pockets there’s ample opportunity to share truth, alas, they forego that blessing with each General Conference. Perhaps they’re ignoring what Jesus did in the temple…

‘And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves…’  Matthew 21:12

Instead of worrying about Jesus’ words, here’s what Nelson had to say via the Deseret News

“The crowning jewel of the Restoration …is the holy temple,” President Nelson said. “Individual worthiness to enter the Lord’s house requires much individual spiritual preparation. But with the Lord’s help, nothing is impossible. In some respects, it is easier to build a temple than it is to build a people prepared for a temple. Individual worthiness requires a total conversion of mind and heart to be more like the Lord, to be an honest citizen, to be a better example and to be a holier person.”

And as the Bible says, it’s easier to get a camel through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to get into heaven…

Question:

Why isn’t Jesus who died for the world the crowning jewel? May the good Lord have mercy on these people.

Below is a side-by-side account of the new and old version of questions. It seems the list gets longer with each modification without really saying anything new. The biggest thing was the difference between the old #6, and the new #7 where it looks like they’ve toned down their rhetoric. As the adage goes – they’re busy rearranging furniture on the Titanic…

Because the Church has publicly posted their interview questions, it gives the ‘outsider’ a perfect opportunity to ask a Mormon you know what they think of the Church modifying the questions repeatedly. If these truly came from the Lord, why is He always needing to change what He commanded?

Be sure to present the questions you may have for them in a loving manner. The quickest way to stop communications with a Mormon is to ask them about these things in an accusatory tone, even if your questions/concerns are legit. You also might share what Paul said about those who follow the law…

‘For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.’ Galatians 3:10

Paul’s insight should give everyone pause! Remind the Mormon you know that on this side of the cross, we live in grace, not under the Law!

Lastly, if you’re LDS, why would you say yes to question #4? Jesus is the only one on earth who should have authority in your life – not the president/prophet. Christians submit themselves to the authority of Christ, not man.

Book of Mormon Witnesses

 Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 214 “The witnesses were men known for truthfulness and sobriety. Though each of the Three Witnesses was eventually excommunicated from the Church (two returned), none ever denied or retracted his published testimony. Each reaffirmed at every opportunity the veracity of his testimony and the reality of what he had seen and experienced…Five of these Eight Witnesses remained solidly with the Church; John Whitmer was excommunicated in 1838, and his brother Jacob Whitmer and brother-in-law Hiram Page then became inactive.

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18

False prophecies A-Z!

Well you know it’s that time of year when our annual ‘Worst of the Worst’ Mormon quotes show up on the site!

This year we found a recurring theme taking place within Mormon leadership. We’re calling it anxiety.

It seems the overriding saga in the Church’s tone is trying to herd the group back into a fenceless pen. It’s painfully obvious their tactics are all for naught. The age of mass media with the internet has proven to be a formidable opponent.

Throughout the year many of their talks kept giving hidden references to past talks given by leaders reminding members not to question their authority and to stay away from outsider info about the Church, including ex-Mormons. In light of that, we posted the references for their original talk as well.

As the last several months have progressed since our last posting, it’s left no doubt they’re scrambling to save face. We found it quite disturbing how they keep delivering speeches disguised as devotionals to young adults warning them that info from anyone but the leaders is poisonous.

The following list is from a few of the most shocking things we’ve found over the past year. At the end of this article are the links for Worst of the Worst, 1 – 3!

I want to make something abundantly clear – we don’t post these things for shock value. Moreover, we don’t do this to bash the Mormon people.

I remember all too well what it felt like as a Mormon when someone was patronizing me because of my faith. I didn’t like it then, and 25+ yrs later, I still don’t.

As we’ve always stated, we do this for two reasons.

1.Inform and educate the Mormon people.

2.Warn the body of Christ about false teachers who still roam this earth.

We pray the following info is used in love for my people, and that the body of Christ will be ever diligent to pray!

With Love in Christ;

 Christian Churches Hatched in Hell

Journal of Discourses 6:176 “Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth.” – Brigham Young

In the 1830’s Americans were in the infancy stages of the public education system; the majority of Americans were part of the agricultural economy; four times as many immigrants came into the country in that decade than the previous one; Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain were all born in the early to mid 1830’s, the Alamo took place, and TX became a state (1836); and notably the song, Jesus Loves Me was written in 1837 by Anna Warner.

In addition to these significant events another person who added to the course of history would write a religious book some referred to as the “Golden Bible”.

Eighteen-thirty is the year J. Smith published the first edition of the Book of Mormon, and formed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to Smith a handful of major events had taken place in the previous years, causing him to act upon the revelation he said God had given to him.

The most incredible ‘revelation’ is in the Pearl of Great Price under Joseph Smith Testimony. In it he claims he went to a grove in the forest to ask God which church he should join, and God appeared in the flesh with his Son Jesus Christ.

They went on to tell him not to join any of the churches because they were all wrong, and had become the “Whore of Babylon”. (more…)

Investigating Mormonism?

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:11

We’ve updated our article, ‘Investigating Mormonism’ and thought it’d make a great witnessing tool for those who will be visiting friends/relatives over the summer months.

You can find lots of basic beliefs about Mormonism to ask your loved ones for their opinion on these classic LDS doctrines.

As an FYI,, you can find it at the top of our homepage on the right hand side…

For anyone thinking about joining Mormonism, we highly encourage a healthy investigation into their basic beliefs, as well as the history of the Church.

We thought we’d list a few of the beliefs to aid in your studies, so here we go!

We pray everyone will be as those in Thessalonica, and study to see if the things of Mormonism are what God has ordained!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 264

“In addition to the spiritual manifestations already mentioned as having occurred at this conference of June 3rd-6th, it should be said that, according to John Whitmer’s History of the Church, ch. v: “The Spirit of the Lord fell upon Joseph in an unusual manner, and he prophesied that John the Revelator was then among the Ten Tribes of Israel who had been led away by Salmanasser, king of Assyria, to prepare them for their return from their long dispersion, to again possess the land of their fathers. He prophesied many more things that I have not written.” (HC 1:176.)”.

The Best of Lowell L. Bennion, Selected Writings 1928-1988: p. 79; “Christ was as humane and man-centered as any humanist in his concern for persons, but he also loved God and shared with him his love for man. And so my loyalty to persons includes man, every man, I hope, but also Deity—the Father and the Son. They too are persons. I don’t know that they need my direct adoration and affection, but it is my simple faith that they suffer when men suffer and rejoice when men have cause to rejoice. So in a modest way, but with all my heart, I would diminish their suffering and enhance their joy.”

One of the most egregious lies from Joseph Smith has to be his false claim that Jesus’ atonement for man’s sin took place in the Garden of Gethsemane.

D&C 19:18 “Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink—”

“…everything in the Church – everything – rises or falls on the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and, by implication, the Prophet Joseph Smith’s account of how it came forth…It sounds like a ‘sudden death’ proposition to me. Either the Book of Mormon is what the Prophet Joseph said it is or this Church and its founder are false, fraudulent, a deception from the first instance onward.” – ELDER JEFFREY R. HOLLAND, “TRUE OR FALSE” 2, NEW ERA, JUNE 1995

Today we’re obviously looking at the well known ‘CES Letter’ – woo-hoo! It’s to my regret that I somehow have missed placing this on our sites, nonetheless, it’s finally here.

For those who are unaware, the ‘LETTER TO A CES DIRECTOR’ was written by Jeremy T. Runnells. He was a life-long 6th generation Utah Mormon, who at one time was a very active member of the Church. (more…)
