Genesis 26:2-5 “And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: 3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

december-witnessing-tip-of-the-day-8 December 8 – Messiah Would Enter Jerusalem Riding a Donkey. Zechariah 9:9; “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: Behold, thy King cometh unto thee: He is just, and having salvation; Lowly, and riding upon an ass, And upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

Ensign, ‘What Think Ye of Christ?’, November 1988 “Man unquestionably has impressive powers… But after all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from the effects of our sins without the grace extended by the atonement of Jesus Christ… Man cannot earn his own salvation.” — Dallin H. Oaks (more…)

As an FYI, in updating some of our articles, I was reminded of this one that’s always been one of my favs. We pray members of the Church will take notice as they build their to-do lists during the holidays.

Jesus is the Only Way

By Melissa Grimes

      I recently come upon this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley:

 “Just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men, and in so doing became our Savior, even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple, become as saviors to those on the other side who have no means of advancing unless something is done in their behalf by those on earth” (“Closing Remarks,” Ensign, November 2004, 105).

     The idea that we have the power to save someone, in the eternal sense is blasphemy. We don’t have the power to do that, only Jesus does. You don’t need someone to do Masonic temple rituals for you in the LDS temple.

Book of Mormon Witnesses

 Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 214 “The witnesses were men known for truthfulness and sobriety. Though each of the Three Witnesses was eventually excommunicated from the Church (two returned), none ever denied or retracted his published testimony. Each reaffirmed at every opportunity the veracity of his testimony and the reality of what he had seen and experienced…Five of these Eight Witnesses remained solidly with the Church; John Whitmer was excommunicated in 1838, and his brother Jacob Whitmer and brother-in-law Hiram Page then became inactive.

 August 9 – Luke 8:9-11 ‘And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

 Christian Churches Hatched in Hell

Journal of Discourses 6:176 “Brother Taylor has just said that the religions of the day were hatched in hell. The eggs were laid in hell, hatched on its borders, and then kicked on to the earth.” – Brigham Young

In the 1830’s Americans were in the infancy stages of the public education system; the majority of Americans were part of the agricultural economy; four times as many immigrants came into the country in that decade than the previous one; Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain were all born in the early to mid 1830’s, the Alamo took place, and TX became a state (1836); and notably the song, Jesus Loves Me was written in 1837 by Anna Warner.

In addition to these significant events another person who added to the course of history would write a religious book some referred to as the “Golden Bible”.

Eighteen-thirty is the year J. Smith published the first edition of the Book of Mormon, and formed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to Smith a handful of major events had taken place in the previous years, causing him to act upon the revelation he said God had given to him.

The most incredible ‘revelation’ is in the Pearl of Great Price under Joseph Smith Testimony. In it he claims he went to a grove in the forest to ask God which church he should join, and God appeared in the flesh with his Son Jesus Christ.

They went on to tell him not to join any of the churches because they were all wrong, and had become the “Whore of Babylon”. (more…)

Investigating Mormonism?

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:11

We’ve updated our article, ‘Investigating Mormonism’ and thought it’d make a great witnessing tool for those who will be visiting friends/relatives over the summer months.

You can find lots of basic beliefs about Mormonism to ask your loved ones for their opinion on these classic LDS doctrines.

As an FYI,, you can find it at the top of our homepage on the right hand side…

For anyone thinking about joining Mormonism, we highly encourage a healthy investigation into their basic beliefs, as well as the history of the Church.

We thought we’d list a few of the beliefs to aid in your studies, so here we go!

We pray everyone will be as those in Thessalonica, and study to see if the things of Mormonism are what God has ordained!

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

If Christians are anti-Mormon, are Mormons anti-Christian?

We posted this in 2012, and still haven’t seen anything from the Church denouncing the things they’ve taught on their feelings about Christianity. Below is our original post –

I signed up for Google-Alerts a few years back so I could get a heads up on top Mormon issues every day.

Now every morning when I download e-mails I keep seeing reports throughout the world of “anti-Mormons” doing this or that and how they’re out to get those un-offending Mormon people.
