Posts Tagged ‘Russell Nelson’

Today we’re looking at the latest Church News which by all intents and purposes would indicate something new was going on…such was not the case here.

It seems the Church goes out of its way to remind members of how awesome they are, and while doing so leave out the truth. (more…)

Yesterday, the Mormon world was all abuzz after hearing that their leader Russell M. Nelson, announced  the Lord no longer wanted them to use the name “Mormon” to describe their church, or its members. President Nelson said, “The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name” (Deseret News) (more…)

As promised, today we’re finishing up our look at comments made by Russell Nelson at his stop in Nairobi, Kenya. Yesterday we examined the Mormon ideology of how LDS temple attendance is mandatory for salvation. See SHAMEFUL LDS AFRICAN TOUR for more info.

To give readers a brief note on today’s topic of dowries, it’d be helpful to know that dowries is a hot topic in African countries today. Somewhere in time there was a major reversal of who paid the dowry, and who was the recipient. As it stands today, the bride’s family owes, and it’s a source of contention in many tribes.

Without belaboring this topic, we’ve found some really good info providing the historical aspects of dowries, both then and now. (more…)

Luke 19:41 “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it”.

LDS Church News, ‘Prophet Visits the Holy Land,’ April 2018; “The reason why prophets are needed is because Heavenly Father wants His children to have the opportunity to come home to Him,”…“God has always dealt with His children on the earth through prophets, but He wants them to choose to come home. So those people who choose to obey the commandments [given through prophets] will have that opportunity to return home with their families in eternal life together,” said President Nelson…

…“This is a legendary land,” Elder Holland said. “It’s a spine-tingling thrill for me to realize that I’m in the company of President Russell M. Nelson, a modern prophet in every sense that they were ancient prophets [in Jerusalem in biblical times] with the same authority and the same priesthood and teaching the same gospel.”

Elder Holland continued, “Our living testimony today is we have a living prophet this very hour on this soil standing in this land teaching that same doctrine.”

As I began compiling notes for our look at the talks given at this year’s General Conference, I received a heads up from Melissa telling me about a website she came across promoting ‘The 70 Day President Nelson Study’. The 70 days is based on the 70 talks Mr. Nelson has given at past General Conferences. The idea is that you can learn more about Nelson by reading his talks.

LDS Church ‘Retires’ Home and Visiting Teaching

In what the Church referred to as ‘an historic General Conference’, several announcements were made including new apostles, and the ‘retirement’ of the Visiting and Home Teaching programs implemented back in the ‘50’s.

Today we’re looking at the highlights of what leaders said regarding the Home Teaching program, and tomorrow we’ll look at the installment of their new non-white apostles. Woo-hoo! To read the stories in full, see the links at Deseret News and the LDS Church.

A couple of remarks they made warrants serious attention. We pray that if you’re a home, or visiting teacher you’ll stop to think about their choice of words. Here are the highlights –

Psalm 119:89 “For ever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven.”

Yesterday we looked at a random question someone had e-mailed us here at LAM. It reminded me of God’s omnipresence in the lives of believers. When we stop to think of it, the body of Christ is a living example that Jesus keeps His promise! Mt. 16:18.

As great as that news was, the e-mail I received last night is at the  other end of the spectrum. The  words of the gentleman who wrote in is heartbreaking. He sounded like a typical Mormon in the tone he used, which only serves to spur me on in this work. His e-mail is listed below, followed by our response.

The one thing I hope to get across in posting this is that we’re not here to bash Mormons. We’re heartbroken they’ve been so deceived, and have obviously spent exorbitant amounts of time in their quest to vindicate Joe Smith’s false gospel. Please, pray for this man, won’t you?

We’ve not included his name, nor have we changed any spelling in his note –
