Doctrines of Salvation 2:67; “FAMILY UNIT CONTINUES ONLY IN CELESTIAL KINGDOM…We believe that the family will go on. I get a great deal of comfort out of the thought that if I am faithful and worthy of an exaltation, my father will be my father, and I will be subject to him as his son through all eternity; that I will recognize and know my mother and she will be my mother in all eternity; and my brothers and sisters will be my brothers and sisters for all eternity; and that my children and my wives will be mine in eternity. I don’t know how some other people feel, but that is a glorious thought to me. That helps to keep me sober.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

november-witness-2November 12 –The doctrines of God include what? Genesis 3:17; “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.”

People often ask us at LAM if anyone knew what Smith and his friends were up to in the early days of Mormonism.

The answer to that is a resounding, YES!

Books and pamphlets were written exposing the Church’s nefarious deeds. Conferences were held, meetings scheduled, and an all out propaganda machine was in full swing denouncing what Smith and company were doing. For many, it wasn’t just the fact he was spreading a false gospel, oh no. Many were up in arms because of the wanton sexual licentious they engaged in, reminiscent of the days in Sodom and Gomorrah. People were horrified learning about the spiritual wifery, and swapping wives amongst themselves for a higher status.

Many dubbed their activities as nothing less than prostitution on the Western Frontier.

Today we’re highlighting two of the more well known ‘anti-Mormons’ of the time; John Bowes, and John Hyde, Jr. We’ve pulled a quote from each of their books to give readers an idea of what others thought of Mormonism.

We’re also wondering…

August 30 – Jeremiah 14:14; “Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”

Journal of Discourses 6:180-181; “The next man who came on to the carpet wanted to know how many wives brother Brigham had. I replied… ‘I will guess, if that will do you any good….he has some fifty or sixty.’” – Ezra T. Benson, Great Salt Lake City, January 24, 1858

Journal of Discourses 11:269; “I heard the revelation on polygamy, and I believed it with all my heart, and I know it is from God – I know that he revealed it from heaven; I know that it is true, and understand the bearings of it and why it is. “Do you think that we shall ever be admitted as a State into the Union without denying the principle of polygamy?” If we are not admitted until then, we shall never be admitted.” – Brigham Young, Great Salt Lake City, Aug 19, 1866

2 Corinthians 6:17; “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”

Paul’s admonition to the true believers in the early church is our focus for today. We’re pleading with the Mormons to come out of the darkness, and into the light of God’s truth!

I was reminded again of the Church’s true agenda. Hide and don’t seek, but more on that in a moment…

I came across an interesting article on a couple of different ‘anti-Mormon’ websites who focused on an LDS lesson manual published in 1997; The Teachings of Brigham Young. The problem with the manual wasn’t so much on what it said, but what it didn’t say.

The following is an overview of what they’re teaching about the second prophet of Mormonism in their adult classes. The irony shan’t be missed considering there’s a university named on his behalf, yet their members aren’t afforded the necessary information to learn all there is about the man.
