The Church’s recent announcement raised more than a few eyebrows for those in the know about all things Mormon.

There were a handful of issues people brought up, and having reporters on the scene gave the impression their new prophet, Russell M. Nelson, would acquiesce, and answer their concerns. Alas, true to Mormon style that assumption proved wrong. The fallout didn’t take long to kick in from around the media tables.

While there were many legitimate issues people wanted addressed, we’re only looking at a couple of things, with an emphasis on their chronically terminal racist problem they instigate, and turn a blind eye to.

Nauvoo Roots of Mormon Polygamy, 1841 – 46, p. 9; “…According to the doctrine of celestial marriage, a woman who was “sealed” (married) to a man in a special religious ceremony was united to him and their children, not only for “time”—until death—but for eternity where they eventually could become gods. Implicit in the revelation was the requirement that a man and woman must accept the “principle” of taking plural wives—known as the law of Abraham—in order to gain the highest afterlife, the celestial kingdom. Just as Abraham, David, Solomon and other Old Testament patriarchs took “many wives and concubines,” the patriarchs and elders of the restored church could attain “crowns of eternal lives in the eternal worlds” and have descendants as “innumerable as the stars.” A woman’s salvation thus depended on entering into a polygamous relationship with a man of high status in the church, because such men were thought to have made the greatest progress towards godhood on earth.” – George D. Smith

In the next 24 hours the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will officially announce that 94 year old, Russell Marion Nelson, Sr., will be the 17th Prophet/President of the Mormon Church.

If someone wanted to look around for notable info on this elderly gentleman, you’d be sure to come across articles about his work as a cardiothoracic surgeon for which he gained a lot of attention and respect from the medical community worldwide. His achievements in the medical field were long, and varied before he was called to the hierarchy of the LDS Church.

Micah 4:5; “For all people will walk everyone in the name of his god, And we will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.”

With the advent of a new Mormon prophet being called into office, we thought we’d look at how the Church does this, and compare it to what the Bible says.

We’re on our knees praying the Mormon people will take heed of the declaration in Micah and denounce the false gods they’ve embraced!

According to the Church’s website, a new prophet isn’t actually chosen in the way you, or I, might think. The next prophet simply takes his new job based on seniority. The apostle that’s been in office the longest is next in line.

Remember beloved, God has forbidden us from having conversations with dead people.  Deuteronomy 18:9-12;

“When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

russell-m-nelson-ldsorg-articleAt the April 2016 General Conference LDS Apostle Russell M. Nelson told listening ears if they wanted to hold true priesthood power of the Mormon priesthood, they should expect to pay a price for their ‘blessing’ of doing so. See The Price of Priesthood Power. What he wasn’t clear about is how God feels about it, and what He warns us not to do.

Isaiah 29:15-16; “Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”

Russell NelsonToday we’re checking out a speech given by LDS apostle Russell M. Nelson in 2013. I came across this talk while gathering info for a different project, and I just couldn’t let this pass on by. The format today is going to be a bit different, so hang with me and it’ll all make sense!

Mr. Nelson’s speech contained 22 lies. Ugh. I honestly don’t recall ever seeing this many lies in one talk, which makes it even more frustrating! So what I’ve done is to pull a few of them, listed them below, and at the end of the article you’ll find all 22 of them in order. To read his speech in full, the link is provided in the title of his speech.

We have a lot of questions today, but the main one is this: Does Mormonism fulfill biblical prophecy?

One more thing – it seems whenever we, or rather I, don’t know what to make of the false teachings in Mormonism, the sweet Lord always does. The passage in Isaiah is rather appropriate today!

Russell NelsonIntroduction to Family History Student Manual, (2012), Chapter 7: Submitting Names for Temple Ordinances; “Elder Russell M. Nelson explained that a newly updated Family Search computer program facilitates family history work and helps Church members determine what temple ordinances have or have not been performed for each individual ancestor: “The Prophet Joseph Smith said, ‘The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our dead’ [Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith (2007), 475]. New technology makes it easier than ever to fulfill that responsibility. Temple and family history work is now facilitated by [Family Search]. This Internet-based system helps members identify their ancestors, determine what ordinance work needs to be done for them, and prepare their names for the temple. It can be accessed from home, a family history center, or wherever the Internet is available. The steps are easy to follow” (in Conference Report, Apr. 2010, 90; or Ensign, May 2010, 92–93).”

2014 Temple of Apollo with Acrocorinth in background by Leon MardinDaniel 2:44,45; “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”

Luke 1:33; “And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

 1 Corinthians 15:24; “Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”

 Revelation 11:15; “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”
