Forgiveness, None for the Adulteress

 Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 164 “In my years since then I have repeatedly heard people praise the Lord for his mercy in having forgiven the adulteress. This example has been used numerous times to show how easily one can be forgiven for gross sin. But did the Lord forgive the woman? Could he forgive her? There seems to be no evidence of forgiveness. His command to her was, “Go, and sin no more.” He was directing the sinful woman to go her way, abandon her evil life, commit no more sin, transform her life.” – Spencer W. Kimball

Ensign, ‘Revelation the Word of the Lord to His Prophets’, May 1977 “Of all things, that for which we should be most grateful today is that the heavens are indeed open and that the restored church of Jesus Christ is founded upon the rock of revelation. Continuous revelation is indeed the very lifeblood of the gospel of the living Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The foreverness of this kingdom and the revelations which it brought into existence are absolute realities. Never again will the sun go down; never again will all men prove totally unworthy of communication with their Maker. Never again will God be hidden from his children on the earth. Revelation is here to remain.” — Spencer W. Kimball [emp. added] (more…)

‘For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works,  lest any man should boast.’ Ephesians 2:8-9

 The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, 502 “Ordinances are basic to the gospel. Now, what is the gospel of which we speak? It is the power of God unto salvation; it is the code of laws and commandments which help us to become perfect, and the ordinances which constitute the entrance requirements.” — Spencer W. Kimball (more…)

 Melissa e-mailed me the meme of a Mormon quote that’s quite popular on FB. She mentioned the quote had no reference on where to find the original source so I went looking around and found this in a speech given by one of their apostles, Robert D. Hales.

Our question is this –

If you’re a true prophet of God wouldn’t you know your salvation is dependent upon the works of Jesus and not yourself?

Really now, if their commander in chief doesn’t have faith in what he’s doing, how are the followers supposed to have unquestioning faith?

The Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 101 “One of the most fallacious doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by man is that man is saved alone by the grace of God; that belief in Jesus Christ alone is all that is needed for salvation. Along with all the other works necessary for man’s exaltation in the kingdom of God this could rule out the need for repentance. It could give license for sin and, since it does not require man to work out his salvation, could accept instead lip service, death-bed “repentance,” and shallow, meaningless confession of sin.” – Spencer W. Kimball, 1969 (more…)

Conference Report, October 1960, Afternoon Meeting 34 “At last the Indians are suitable. … The day of the Lamanites is nigh. For years they have been growing delightsome, and they are now becoming white and delightsome, as they were promised. In this picture of the twenty Lamanite missionaries, fifteen of the twenty were as light as AngIos; five were darker but equally delightsome. The children in the home placement program in Utah are often lighter than their brothers and sisters in the hogans on the reservation.” – Spencer W. Kimball (more…)

One important thing to keep in mind when understanding Mormon doctrine: pay attention to little details.

The Mormon Church teaches its members they’ll become kings and queens for God, but the Bible says no such thing.

Revelation 5:10 “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.”

Matthew 7:15; “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Despite constant reassurances from leaders of the Church they can be trusted, it turns out they’re a picture perfect example of the wolf in sheep’s clothing!

The LDS Church makes it a priority to remind people their self-ordained prophets would never lead people astray. The following is just one of several examples anyone can find in their writings/teaching manuals. We found our example in the LDS Student Manual, The Living Prophet, the President of the Church

“You keep your eye upon him whom the Lord called, and I say to you now, knowing that I stand in this position, you don’t need to worry about the President of the Church ever leading people astray, because the Lord would remove him out of his place before He would ever allow that to happen” (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1996], 533).

General Conference, October 1960, p. 34; “The day of the Lamanites is nigh. For years they have been growing delightsome, and they are now becoming white and delightsome, as they were promised. …At one meeting a father and mother  and their sixteen-year-old daughter were present, the little member girl – sixteen – sitting between the dark father and mother, and it was evident she was several shades lighter than her parents…These young members of the Church are changing to whiteness and delightsomeness.” – Spencer W. Kimball

Teachings of The Presidents of the Church, Spencer W. Kimball, pp. 26-27; “This is the message of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. …

When Adam intentionally and wisely partook of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, he brought upon all of us, his descendants, two deaths—the physical or “mortal death,” and the spiritual death or the banishment from the presence of the Lord. In God’s divine plan, provision was made for a redeemer to break the bonds of death and… Jesus of Nazareth was the one who, before the world was created, was chosen to come to earth to perform this service…” [emp. mine]

Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p. 20; “He himself [Jesus] specialized in character engineering, to make men, human masterpieces. He took a Peter and made a Saint. He took a Saul and made a Paul. And he took you and me and he will make of us gods if we will comply and follow along. What a picture! So terrible and yet so sublime.”

John 14:6; “Jesus saith unto him: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

mormon_missionaries New Era, ‘Questions and Answers,’ February 1971;

“As I pray about a mission, the Lord says to me not to go.

“When should a young man not go on a mission?”

Answer/Elder Gordon B. Hinckley

In the first place a man does not initiate his mission call. In light of this, it is not his prerogative to choose or not to choose to go on a mission. His bishop and stake president recommend him, and he may state his desire to them. The call comes from the President of the Church, and the young man may then accept or reject it.”

Conference Report, October 1974, pp. 116-117; “…One obsession of this Church and all its members is missionary work… …if you receive a call from the Lord through your bishop and stake presidency, it is your privilege, but also your obligation, to fill that calling…Every boy in every country in all the world who has been baptized and received the Holy Ghost will have the responsibility of bearing the message of the gospel to the people of the world.” – Spencer W. Kimball
