October 9 – Counting God’s Cost at Calvary. 1 Peter 2:24 “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

The headliner in the Mormon owned newspaper, Deseret News, was probably meant to be a head-turner. Alas, such wasn’t the case for the many who took time to read what the LDS prophet ‘revealed’ on October 2, 2019.

Today we’re cutting to the chase. Melissa e-mailed yesterday with a link to their article. The only comment she made was, ‘It always comes back to sex with them, doesn’t it?’. (more…)

General Conference, ‘The Book of Mormon: What Would Your Life Be Like without It?,’ October 2017 “I testify that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God. It contains the answers to life’s most compelling questions. It teaches the doctrine of Christ. It expands and clarifies many of the “plain and precious” truths that were lost through centuries of time and numerous translations of the Bible.

The Book of Mormon provides the fullest and most authoritative understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ to be found anywhere. …

The Book of Mormon affirms: The individual identity of Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ…” — Russell M. Nelson (more…)

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33 [emp. added]

Fireside focuses on families Deseret News, February 7, 2005 Don’t put off having children, LDS Church apostle tells students

PROVO — College students should not put off creating families until they have completed all of their studies, an LDS Church apostle said Sunday. … Nelson made the statements during a Church Education System fireside broadcast

He urged college students …to visualize their life in 50 years.

By then, careers would be over and faith and families would be their focal points.

Broad minds and narrow waists would have traded places.

He urged his listeners to seek first to follow the teachings of the church before seeking wealth, which includes the commandment to create families. …” [emp. added] (more…)

Acts 7:48 “Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet”.

MormonNewsroom.org, ‘Plans Unveiled for Salt Lake Temple Renovation,’ 19 April, 2019

“ …The temple will close December 29, 2019, and will remain closed for approximately four years while undergoing a major structural and seismic renovation. The temple is expected to reopen in 2024 with a public open house. …We promise that you will love the results,” said President Nelson. “They will emphasize and highlight the life, ministry, and mission of Jesus Christ in His desire to bless every nation, kindred, tongue and people.” (more…)

Galatians 2:16 “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

An article in the March issue of Ensign gave members a laundry list of mandates for true salvation. Their list of manmade works for salvation served as a stark reminder for us as Christians to always be on our knees for these dear people!

‘…the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands…’ Acts 7:48

From the outside looking in, it’s easy to see the Mormon gospel is a bag of mixed messages. However, for those on the inside blatant contradictions are either missed, and/or ignored.

Reality: the nuance of the Mormon god’s gospel is anything but endearing.

We came across two varying opinions of God’s love for us on another site which gave us pause, and prompted the obvious question…

Which prophet do you believe? (more…)

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” – John 17:3

In a recent visit to Chile for a temple dedication, President Russell M. Nelson and other church leaders took the time to speak to the youth.

As I read over some of the things, my heart broke for the youth in the audience who were listening to what they said. Below are a few quotes from their visit.

Nelson told the youth – “We cannot reach God’s eternal celestial glory without the ordinances of the temple,” …. “Obedience to sacred temple covenants qualifies us for eternal life — the greatest of all of God’s gifts to His children.” (more…)

Yesterday we saw Russell Nelson proclaim his delight in Joe Smith’s insights regarding the Bible, and how they were ‘amazingly consistent’.

Today we’re wondering how Mr. Nelson would explain Smith’s false prophecy in calling God a liar…

The very foundation of Mormonism declares God’s word to be wrong, and therefore, all of Christianity has been worshiping the wrong God.

History of the Church 6:305-306 “It is necessary we should understand the character and being of God and how he came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came to be God. We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see.

These are incomprehensible ideas to some, but they are simple. It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with him as one man converses with another, and that he was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did….

Here, then, is eternal life—to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn how to be gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all gods have done before you, namely, by going from one small degree to another, and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace, from exaltation to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to dwell in everlasting burnings, and to sit in glory, as do those who sit enthroned in everlasting power.” — Joseph Smith, April 1844 (more…)

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “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”.

New Era. ‘Study the Savior’s Words,’ January 2018 “I have devoted much of my 93 years to learning about the Savior, but rare are the occasions when I have been able to learn as much as I did over this six-week study period. In fact, I learned so much about Him from this study that I am planning to share much of it in other upcoming addresses that I am currently preparing. 2

Upon beginning this assignment, I didn’t expect that this study would help me to receive a new testimony of the divinity of the work of Joseph Smith—but it did! The revelations recorded by Joseph Smith and the insights found in the Bible are amazingly consistent. It was so enlightening for me to see this in my study.

Joseph Smith wouldn’t have possibly had time to correlate and cross-reference with the Bible at the rapid rate at which he was translating the Book of Mormon—but it’s all here! – Russell Nelson (more…)

On October 27, 2018 the LDS Church released an official statement for the new policy on large scale Mormon productions.

If you’ve never heard of Mormon Pageants: think Broadway.

The Church pulls out big names like Donny Osmond who volunteer their time to be part of the show. Their live performances typically focus on recreating the story of the Church’s beginnings. It’s where many Mormon families spend their summer vacations

Pageants are like Mormon Roadshows on steroids. The latter is reminiscent of earlier days when wards would compete yearly against each other for the chance to win bragging rights of who had put on the best productions.

Our thoughts on this latest policy? (more…)

Mark 3:25 “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

General Conference, ‘Sisters’ Participation in the Gathering of Israel,’ October 2018 “… it was our glorious Mother Eve—with her far-reaching vision of our Heavenly Father’s plan—who initiated what we call ‘‘the Fall.” Her wise and courageous choice and Adam’s supporting decision moved God’s plan of happiness forward. They made it possible for each of us to come to earth, receive a body, and prove that we would choose to stand up for Jesus Christ now, just as we did premortally.” (more…)

The lies and contradictions Russell Nelson made this past weekend were many. One thing that caught our attention was when he told members Jesus gave the Nephites specific instructions on what to name their church…

The Correct Name of the Church “It was the Savior Himself who said, “For thus shall my church be called in the last days, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Even earlier, in AD 34, our resurrected Lord gave similar instruction to members of His Church when He visited them in the Americas. …Thus, the name of the Church is not negotiable.” –– Russell M. Nelson, October 7, 2018 (more…)

John 4:24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

General Conference, ‘Becoming Exemplary Latter-day Saints, October 2018 “… the assaults of the adversary are increasing exponentially, in intensity and in variety. Our need to be in the temple on a regular basis has never been greater…  If you have reasonable access to a temple, I urge you to find a way to make an appointment regularly with the Lord—to be in His holy house—then keep that appointment with exactness and joy.” Russell M. Nelson (more…)

‘If Jesus ever gave us a command He could not enable us to fulfil, He would be a liar; and if we make our inability a barrier to obedience, it means we are telling God there is something He has not taken into account. Every element of self reliance must be slain by the power of God.’ Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, May 5th

It’s my urgent prayer the Mormon people would heed God’s call, and be saved. There are no words in the English language to efficiently describe the sorrow in my heart knowing their fate if they continue on the path they’ve trodden upon. It seems as if their leaders words become worse with time, albeit there’s little room left at the bottom of that barrel.

Today we’re looking at the Church’s incessant try at controlling the thought life of all people, as well as two talks beginning with their top apostle, Henry Eyring. His words are a mockery towards the Lord God. It’s obvious he’s proficient in biblical phrases, and has used his knowledge to lead my people to Satan’s doorstep.

Talk #5

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…)
