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…)

September 2 – Philippians 2:5-7; “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”.

The Book of Mormon is fraught with problems, but today we’re looking at just one issue: contradictions.

This time around the contradictions are concerning how Book of Mormon authors complained about the lack of materials they had available to write their pseudo gospel, while going into great detail of events taking place. Jarom 1:14  Their excuses ranged from the ‘awkwardness of their hands’, to the font size of letters in Reformed Egyptian. (more…)

I praise you not. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home…”

Proverbs 22:6; “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

In my beloved Utah there’s a natural (albeit strange) phenomena called ‘Pando’,

 

It’s a small forested area with one big problem. The entire 106 acre Aspen forest grew from one root system. This means if one dies, they all die. There are no new saplings growing from dropped seeds. What trees there are, has grown by the sheer force of the underground root system spreading across the land. Scientists discovered it in the ‘60’s and have determined it’s about 130 years old.

In addition to Pando, a somewhat similar phenomena has taken over the Wasatch Front that originally took root on the eastern seaboard. Nepotism in the Church has been a long standing problem to everyone but those who belong to this human form of Pando. Making matters worse is the force behind the root system – blasphemy.

April 14 – Matt. 7:20-23; “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
