Study Manual The Plan of Salvation, What is My Purpose in Life “Our Heavenly Father gave Adam and Eve agency, or freedom to choose. He commanded them not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Obeying this commandment meant they could remain in the garden, but they could not progress by learning from experiences and challenges. Satan tempted Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, and they chose to do so. This was part of God’s plan. …

Many aspects of life bring happiness, and some bring sorrow. These experiences help you learn to distinguish between good and evil and to make correct choices.

God influences you to do good and to follow Him, while Satan tempts you to ignore God and commit sin. (Sin is knowingly choosing to do wrong or not to do right.) When you choose to follow God and keep His commandments, you grow in wisdom and strength of character…” [Retrieved Oct. 1, 2020] [emp. added] (more…)

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
