A few weeks ago as I was running errands around town, I was listening to a sermon on the radio, and unfortunately I don’t recall who it was, so my apologies there! The pastor briefly mentioned something from the Bible that caught my attention, and I remembered enough to make a mental note of what he said in passing so I could investigate at a later date. Mind you, it was the second time in as many weeks I had heard the same info from different sources.

flowers-cartoon-8April’s message focuses on Jesus’ role as our Savoir and Redeemer and begins with this quote by D. Todd Christofferson:

“Redeem means to pay off an obligation or a debt. Redeem can also mean to rescue or set free as by paying a ransom. … Each of these meanings suggests different facets of the great Redemption accomplished by Jesus Christ through His Atonement, which includes, in the words of the dictionary, ‘to deliver from sin and its penalties, as by a sacrifice made for the sinner.” (“Redemption,” Ensign, May 2013, 109.)

As a Mormon I never related to Jesus on a personal level, but an impersonal one. By that I mean that anytime I referred to Him it was always “the Savior”, meaning He’s the savior of the world. I never thought of Him as being my Savior, as in He went to the cross to pay for my sins so that He could save me from the punishment I deserved.

Come to think of it I never called Him by His name either, but instead called Him “Christ”. Even when I left Mormonism I had a hard time breaking that habit, and it took me awhile before could call Him by His name, Jesus. And as for my prayer life, it never occurred to me that it was ok for me to pray to Him. Praying to Jesus isn’t something you do in the Mormon Church. Mormon prayers are always addressed to their “Heavenly Father”, and closed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Conversion

http://www.lds.org/study/topics/conversion?lang=eng  “Conversion includes a change in behavior, but it goes beyond behavior; it is a change in our very nature. It is such a significant change that the Lord and His prophets refer to it as a rebirth, a change of heart, and a baptism of fire.

Conversion is a process, not an event. Conversion comes as a result of righteous efforts to follow the Savior. These efforts include exercising faith in Jesus Christ, repenting of sin, being baptized, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end in faith.”

Becoming as Saviors to Our Departed Loved Ones

Ensign, Nov. 2006, pg 11; “President Hinckley has told us that ‘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’ (Discourses of President Gordon B. Hinckley, Volume 2: 2000-2004 [2005], 265).

“This is such meaningful service we give because our departed brothers and sisters literally become more connected to us.” – Richard H. Winkel, “The Temple Is About Families”

Humble Following or Misguided Trust?

The lengths to which members of the LDS Church will go never ceases to amaze me when defending the position they take about Joseph Smith.  I could write volumes upon volumes of books containing testimonials of how wonderful Mr. Smith is and if it weren’t for Mr. Smith then no one could be saved.
