Moroni or Nephi, Who Visited Joseph that Night?

 Introductory page of D&C 1976, 3rd paragraph “This took place in the early spring of 1820. In September, 1823, and at later times, Joseph Smith received visitations from Moroni, an angel of light, who revealed the resting place of the ancient record from which The Book of Mormon was afterward translated.”

March 21 — Moroni: Don’t Baptize Dead People. Romans 16:17-18 “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (more…)

March 12 – Baptisms for the Dead Means Not Trusting God. Isaiah 8:19-20 “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

‘For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.’ Matthew 24:24.

 Today is part 2 of our look at an article in the latest church magazine, Liahona, ‘What Did Moroni Teach Joseph Smith?’, January 2021.

Yesterday we looked at five lies, some of which included witchcraft, necromancy, and Joseph’s ill-gotten fame.

Today we’ll see how neither Moroni, nor Joseph, opted for defending the Lord. Moroni did nothing more than feed a teenager’s inflated ego. Based on the Church’s track record, one must wonder if this even happened at all.

If you’re LDS, we want to reiterate we don’t say these things to demean or bash you. Our hearts are broken for the way this church has lied, and led members away from Jesus, not to Him.

We pray you’ll look at the evidence and compare all of it objectively – your very soul depends on it!

As Paul Harvey used to say…now for the rest of this story!

1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”.

 Yesterday (July 15, 2020) the Church announced the publication of Eliza Snow’s Discourses anyone can read online.

In case you’re unaware, Ms. Snow was the 2nd president of the Relief Society, and older sister of Lorenzo Snow, the Church’s 5th prophet/president. She was the 14th wife of Joe Smith, and became the 10th wife of Brigham Young, 4 months after Smith’s death. She lived from 1804 – 1887.

The Church had nothing but glowing reports about Eliza. Here in part is what they said – (more…)

Doctrines of Salvation 2:188APOSTATE CHURCH AND SALVATION FOR DEAD. They have in the Catholic Church the doctrine of indulgences…They sold these indulgences. That is one of the main things that took Martin Luther out of the Catholic Church. He began to realize that the practice was wrong; it was not possible, not just or right for a person to sell forgiveness of sins for a price, either before or after the sin…

In the Catholic Church they offer prayers for the dead to get them out of purgatory. And people pay the priests to pray for the dead. Now that is a corruption of the doctrine of salvation for the dead.” — Joseph Fielding Smith, 1955 (more…)

Jesus Christ: The Source of Enduring Joy “From a devotional address, “That They Might Have Joy,” delivered at Brigham Young University on December 4, 2018. …

Since becoming president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Russell M. Nelson frequently has extended an invitation to the people of the world that includes the promise of joy: “Our message to the world is simple and sincere: we invite all of God’s children on both sides of the veil to come unto their Savior, receive the blessings of the holy temple, have enduring joy, and qualify for eternal life.”6” — David Bednar

See Russell M. Nelson, “Let Us All Press On,” Liahona, May 2018, 118–19 for Mr. Bednar’s reference. (more…)

‘But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.’ Matthew 8:22

 Today we’re looking at an LDS site filled with quotes on what the Church’s leaders have said about temples. We’re comparing a few of the things they’ve said with God’s word, and what Jesus has told us.

You can read the full list at Temple Quotes. Tomorrow we’ll be checking out statistical facts about the cities for their new temples because the choices are quite bothersome. Here we go! (more…)
