Curse of Cain, Blacks, Satan Needed a Representative on Earth

Journal of Discourses 22:336-337; “Why is it, in fact, that we should have a devil? Why did not the Lord kill him long ago? Because he could not do without him. He needed the devil and a great many of those who do his bidding just to keep men straight, that we may learn to place our dependence upon God, and trust in Him, and to observe his laws and keep his commandments. When he destroyed the inhabitants of the antediluvian world, he suffered a descendant of Cain to come through the flood in order that he might be properly represented upon the earth.” – John Taylor, Grantsville, Utah, October 29, 1882

January 8 — Free Agency. Joshua 24:14-15; “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (more…)

July 21 – The god of this world. 2 Corinthians 4:4; “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (more…)

Message from the angel Gabriel told Joseph:

Matthew 1:21; “Call his name Jesus for he will save his people from their sins…” 

Message from the angel of light Moroni told Joseph Smith:

Joseph Smith History 1:33; “…my name should be had for good and evil among all nations, kindreds, and tongues…”

The one sure thing that hasn’t changed since Matthew put ink to papyri is the message he recorded that came from God’s angel, Gabriel. The story hasn’t changed. You won’t find a reputable source divulging any information outside what we read in God’s word. While it sounds simplistic, it had to be one of the most profound messages known to mankind.

‘Call His name Jesus’…is the segue to discovering how God intervened on man’s behalf through the soon-to-be-born child, Jesus.

1 John 2:29; “If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.”

salt lake mormon temple 2Today we’re examining questionable comments (a-hem, lies) the LDS Church told in a commentary for one of their standard works; the Pearl of Great Price. The irony in this writing, and those of other LDS authorities couldn’t be richer, and the longer we looked, the worse it got. Please, don’t forget to pray for them! Pray also other Christians will recall what John said in his epistle so they don’t get fooled into believing the lies.

The passage we’ve used is listed below, followed by a few questions and comments from the points we’re looking at today. The strange part about this is how they accused Satan of lying to Eve, yet they’re the guilty party. We’re not defending Satan mind you! We just wondering if they’re ever using the Bible…at all… As you read through this, see how many of their lies you pick up on.

BTW – this is one of the most demonic, outright evil things I’ve seen in Mormon writings to date. I shudder to think of the impact it will have on those who believe this.

Pearl of Great Price Commentary, p. 146; “The devil in tempting Eve told a truth when he said unto her that when she should eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil they should become as Gods. He told the truth in telling that, but he accompanied it with a lie as he always does. He never tells the complete truth. He said that they should not die. The Father had said that they should die. The devil had to tell a lie in order to accomplish his purposes; but there was some truth in his statement. Their eyes were opened. They had a knowledge of good and evil just as the Gods have. They became as Gods; for that is one of the features, one of the peculiar attributes of those who attain unto that glory—they understand the difference between good and evil.” (George Q. Cannon, Gospel Truth, 1:16.)” – Milton R. Hunter

Mormon Decisions 10God (Elohim) an Exalted Man

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p 345; “God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted Man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens. That is the great secret… It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the character of God and to know…that he was once a man like us. Here, then, is eternal life—to know that only wise and true God, and you have got to learn how to become Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done before you. .. God himself, the father of us all dwelt on an earth the same as Jesus Christ.”

I just read an amazing testimony from a woman who was having doubts about Mormonism, but like many she tried to ignore what the Lord was revealing to her. I relate to many of the things she says. I also felt uneasiness in the temple the last time I was there, especially during the part where Satan looks at the audience and delivers his dramatic, threatening monologue to all who would even think about leaving the church.

A word of warning before you click on the link, some of her vocabulary might not sit well with some readers. We share her testimony with you because these things need to be addressed. As raw as her testimony is, it really hits home to what Mormonism is about, and the emotions one feels as they come to the realization that it’s all a farce.

Mormon ScripturesThis morning I came across a Facebook page titled “I Love the Book of Mormon”. My question to Mormons is why do you love this book? What’s so special about it?

The mormon.org website describes the Book of Mormon as “another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. “ As I read that statement alone a couple of questions came to mind such as:

Why is another witness needed?

Angels

Mormon Decisions 10Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg 162; “…An angel of God never has wings. Some will say that they have seen a spirit; that he offered them his hand, but they did not touch it. This is a lie. First, it is contrary to the plan of God; a spirit cannot come but in glory; an angel has flesh and bones; we see not their glory. The devil may appear as an angel of light. Ask God to reveal it; if it be of the devil, he will flee from you; if of God, He will manifest Himself, or make it manifest. We may come to Jesus and ask Him; He will know all about it; if He comes to a little child, he will adapt himself to the language and capacity of a little child.”

Isaiah 6:1-2; “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.”

Below is a link to the film shown in the Mormon temple during the endowment ceremony.

As I watch this video I think back to a time I actually believed in what I was doing, I can’t believe I used to participate in this madness. Looking back now I wish that I would have seen then what I see now, it’s paganism there’s no other word for it. Satan stars as one of the leading roles with Jesus only receiving a minor one, and it’s not even the real Jesus. This video should sweep away any doubt in the minds of those wondering if Mormonism is really a cult.
