As an update to this post – I somehow forgot to include some verses about finding strength in the Lord – yikes!

Psalm 28:7-8, 37:39, 59:9; Exodus 15:2; Isaiah 45:24…and the list goes on! 

TheChurchNews.com “The word that defines counsel and direction from President Nelson during general conference — ‘faith’ …

Temples are a vital part of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness,” he said. “Ordinances of the temple fill our lives with power and strength — available in no other way. We thank God for those blessings.” — Russell Nelson [emp. added] (more…)

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” Jude 1:24-25

‘Christ Is Risen; Faith in Him Will Move Mountains’ “Talk summary: “My dear brothers and sisters, my call to you this Easter morning is to start today to increase your faith. …

To do anything well requires effort. Becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ is no exception. First, study. Become an engaged learner. Second, choose to believe in Jesus Christ. Third, act in faith. Fourth, partake of sacred ordinances worthily. And fifth, ask your Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, for help.

“Faith takes work. Receiving revelation takes work. … Do not minimize the faith you already have. It takes faith to join the Church and remain faithful.”” — Russell Nelson, Sunday April 4 2021 (more…)

Today’s post is a reminder of what Mr. Nelson declared in 2016.

We originally looked at this right after he made the speech in question.

Fast forward a few years and we see Mr. Nelson is on to other things he deems important like building a lot of new temples, and making sure the Church isn’t referred to as Mormonism. The biggest agenda seems to be reminding people they can have their own revelations as long as they fall in line with his.

Sadly, all those in attendance in that meeting five years ago accepted what he said without question, just as many are doing so today.

Please, pray for these dear people and for Jesus’ intervention! (more…)

General Conference, ‘Welcome Message’, April 2021 “The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of repentance. “Because of the Savior’s Atonement, His gospel provides an invitation to keep changing, growing and becoming more pure. It is a gospel of hope, of healing and of progress.” — Russell Nelson (more…)

The three talk summaries we’re looking at today are enough to show the fallacies in LDS theology. Pray for those who watched this conference, and bought into the lies! You can read the Church’s PDF which is where we originally retrieved them, and/or see their talks in the links we provided below.

One thing is certain. The Church continues to point inward to avoid pointing to Jesus.

1 Corinthians 3:16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

General Conference, ‘New Temples’, April 2021 “President Nelson’s announcement today of 20 new temples and their locations is unique not simply because of the historic number with specific locations. The prophet has now announced 69 new temples in the three years he has served as president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Church of Jesus Christ now has 251 temples announced, under construction or operating.” (more…)

March 12 – Baptisms for the Dead Means Not Trusting God. Isaiah 8:19-20 “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1

General Conference, ‘Closing Remarks’, October 2019 “We know the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will bring hope and joy to people who will hear and heed His doctrine. We also know that each home can become a true sanctuary of faith, where peace, love, and the Spirit of the Lord may dwell.

Of course, the crowning jewel of the Restoration is the holy temple. Its sacred ordinances and covenants are pivotal to preparing a people who are ready to welcome the Savior at His Second Coming. Presently we have 166 dedicated temples, and more are coming.” — Russell Nelson [emp. added] (more…)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16

Liahona, ‘Grow into the Principle of Revelation’, January 2021 “When we couple increased purity and obedience with fasting, diligent seeking, study of the scriptures and the words of living prophets, and temple and family history work, the heavens will open. The Lord, in turn, will fulfill His promise: “I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind” (Doctrine and Covenants 11:13).

We may need to be patient, but God will speak to us in His own way and in His own time. … May we put our faith into action, calling upon Him, living worthy of His promised inspiration…” —— Russell Nelson (more…)

Liahona, ‘Grow into the Principle of Revelation’, January 2021 “Worthy to Receive Revelation … Refining our ability to recognize the whisperings of the Holy Ghost and increasing our capacity to receive revelation requires worthiness. Worthiness does not require perfection, but it requires that we strive for increased purity.

The Lord expects daily effort, daily improvement, daily repentance. Worthiness brings purity, and purity qualifies us for the Holy Ghost. As we take “the Holy Spirit for [our] guide” (Doctrine and Covenants 45:57), we qualify for personal revelation.” — Russell Nelson (more…)

 January 12 — Which Master Do You Serve?

Self-Fulfilled Prophecies

General Conference, ‘All Nations, Kindreds, and Tongues’ October 2020 “…consider how the prophecies God gives His servants are fulfilled. … As we hearken to the Lord’s spirit of prophecy, we can become, in our own way, part of the fulfillment of His prophecies…” — Gerrit Gong

The LDS Church has indeed fulfilled prophecies in the Bible alright. (more…)

ChurchNews.com “President Nelson told listeners to “please listen carefully to what I am about to say. God does not love one race more than another. His doctrine on this matter is clear. He invites all to come unto Him, ‘black and white, bond and free, male and female’ (2 Nephi 26:33). I assure you that your standing before God is not determined by the color of your skin. Favor or disfavor with God is dependent upon your devotion to God and His commandments, and not the color of your skin.” (more…)

The Spirit of Elijah, by Definition, Is the Holy Ghost as His Directing Influence Guides Those Who Participate in Family History and Temple Work [2.6] ““The Spirit of Elijah” is a manifestation of the Holy Ghost. [2.6.1] Latter-day Saints often talk about “the Spirit of Elijah.” This phrase refers to the workings of the Holy Ghost upon individuals that creates an excitement and desire “to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers” (D&C 110:15) and to be involved in the work of family history. Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explained: “What is sometimes called the Spirit of Elijah [is] a manifestation of the Holy Ghost bearing witness of the divine nature of the family. Hence, people throughout the world, regardless of religious affiliation, are gathering records of deceased relatives at an ever-increasing rate” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1998, 43; or Ensign, May 1998, 34).”

The Articles of Faith, p. 178 “There is an entire absence of scriptural sanction for giving the sacrament to any who are not members in full fellowship in the Church of Christ. Christ administered the ordinance on the eastern continent to His apostles only; and we have record of their giving it to those only who had assumed the name of Christ. Amongst His western fold, Christ established the law that only the actual members of His Church should partake.

In promising to ordain one among them with power to officiate in the sacrament, the Savior specified that the one so chosen should give it unto the people of His Church, unto all those who believed and were baptized in His name.” Only those indeed who had been so baptized were called the Church of Christ. Continuing His instructions to the disciples concerning the sacrament, the Savior said: “This shall ye always do to those who repent and are baptized in my name.” — James Talmage (more…)

New Era, ‘Hope of Israel’, June 2018 “Think of it! Of all the people who have ever lived on planet earth, we are the ones who get to participate in this final, great gathering event. How exciting is that!

Our Heavenly Father has reserved many of His most noble spirits—perhaps, I might say, His finest team—for this final phase.

Those noble spirits—those finest players, those heroes—are you! Worldwide Youth Devotional June 3, 2018.” — Russell Nelson (more…)

‘For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.’ Luke 19:10

General Conference, ‘A Testimony of the Book of Mormon’ October 1999 “This unique mortal mission of the Lord—the gospel as He defined it—we know as the Atonement. The fulness of the gospel, therefore, connotes a fuller comprehension of the Atonement. This we do not obtain from the Bible alone. The word atonement, in any of its forms, is mentioned only once in the King James Version of the New Testament. In the Book of Mormon, it appears 39 times! The Book of Mormon also contains more references to the Resurrection than does the Bible.” — Russell Nelson (more…)

“Any of us who has prejudice toward another race needs to repent!”

 Those words came from a statement published in the LDS Church News earlier this week. The Mormon prophet’s impassioned plea for peace, and repentance, hides itself in the shadows of history, not to mention their beloved canon; the Book of Mormon.

Their concern about racism falls way short, even by Mr. Russell’s own standards. Today we’re waiting for any sign of repentance from the Church for teaching the blasphemous theology they hold so dear. (more…)
