“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…)

October 13 ––Misplaced Priorities 2 Timothy 3:13-14 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them”. (more…)
