New Era, ‘How do I strengthen my testimony by bearing it when I have such a hard time being in front of people?,’ March 2019

“President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, then-Second Counselor in the First Presidency, gave four suggestions on how to strengthen your testimony:

  1. Search the word of God.
  2. “Fearlessly strive to believe.
  3. “Ask with a sincere heart and with real intent, having faith in Christ.
  4. “Put gospel doctrine and Church teachings to the test in your own life.”

Remember: “The process of gathering spiritual light is the quest of a lifetime.”

From President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, then-Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “Receiving a Testimony of Light and Truth,” Oct. 2014 general conference.” (more…)

 Today we’re looking at an LDS Fireside Meeting from 2016 when Mormon apostle Dallin Oaks participated in a Q&A type forum with young adults here in the Puget Sound area. The meeting was recorded and uploaded on both YouTube, and SoundCloud. We retrieved our info from Stuff You Missed in Sunday School.

What he said was disturbing because it shows a lack of knowing the Lord which is sad in itself. Furthermore, his position of authority and the credence followers give to him, make it even worse.

General Conference, ‘Trust in the Lord and Lean Not,’ April 2017 “Remember, in our premortal life we stood with the Savior. We trusted Him. We voiced our support, enthusiasm, and joy for the plan of happiness set forth by our Heavenly Father. We leaned not. We fought with our testimonies and “aligned ourselves with the forces of God, and those forces were victorious.” This battle between good and evil has moved to earth. Once again we have the sacred responsibility to stand as a witness and put our trust in the Lord.” — Bonnie H. Cordon, Young Women’s President (more…)

Pursued by the One True God: My Journey Out of Mormonism

by Carla Mickelson 

I was born and raised in the Mormon Church and was a faithful member for over 39 years. In May 2012 I left the Mormon Church for Christianity. For me, leaving Mormonism was spurred by something a dying pastor said to me at work one night. I was his nurse and I thought I was doing him a favor by letting him hold my hand and talk about Bible stories, but the pastor really blessed me by opening my eyes to Christ’s grace.

He told me that when Jesus was dying on the cross, He had taken upon Himself the sins of the world. He explained that all sin was judged once and does not need to be judged again if we accept Christ’s sacrifice for us.
