General Conference, ‘Jesus Christ: The Caregiver of Our Soul’, April 2021 “Through Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice, we can experience a mighty change of mind and heart, bringing a fresh attitude, both toward God and toward life in general. When we sincerely repent of our sins and turn our hearts and will to God and His commandments, we can receive His forgiveness and feel the influence of His Holy Spirit in greater abundance. Mercifully, we avoid having to experience the depth of suffering the Savior endured. …

My dear friends, I testify to you that as we genuinely repent of our sins, we allow the atoning sacrifice of Christ to become wholly effective in our life. We will become free from the bondage of sin, find joy in our earthly journey, and become eligible to receive eternal salvation, which was prepared from the foundation of the world for all who believe in Jesus Christ and come unto Him.” — Ulisses Soares [emp. added] (more…)

The Coming Forth of the Book of Mormon “Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris…testified that an angel, who came from the presence of the Lord, showed them the ancient record and that they saw the characters engraved in the plates. … The Lord miraculously called another eight witnesses to see the gold plates for themselves and to be special witnesses of the truth and divinity of the Book of Mormon to the world. They testified that they saw and carefully examined the plates and their engraved characters.

Even amid the adversities, persecutions, all kinds of difficulties, and even some of them later faltering in their faith, these eleven chosen Book of Mormon witnesses never denied their testimonies that they had seen the plates…” — Ulisses Soares (more…)

The Coming Forth of the Book of Mormon “Ezekiel spoke about the stick of Judah (the Bible) and the stick of Ephraim (the Book of Mormon) being brought together as one. Both Ezekiel (in the Old Testament) and Lehi (in the Book of Mormon) indicate that they shall “grow together” to confound false doctrine, establish peace, and bring us to a knowledge of the covenants.” — Ulisses Soares (more…)

General Conference, ‘Take Up Our Cross,’ October 2019 “…all of us, brothers and sisters, need to open our minds and our hearts in order to more fully understand the relevance of taking upon ourselves our crosses and following Him. We learn through the scriptures that those who wish to take their cross upon themselves love Jesus Christ in such a way that they deny themselves of all ungodliness and of every worldly lust and keep His commandments…

For example, for those who have not yet found an eternal companion and may be feeling lonely and hopeless…I assure you that accepting the Savior’s invitation of taking upon yourselves your crosses and following Him means continuing with faith on the Lord’s path…

The same principles apply to those of you who are experiencing same-gender attraction and feel discouraged and helpless…I want to assure you that there is always hope in God the Father…

He will do for us what we are not capable of doing for ourselves. …

Additionally, for those who feel bitter, angry, offended, or chained to sorrows for something you feel is undeserved, to take up one’s cross and follow the Savior means to strive to lay aside these feelings…

We cannot repent for other people, but we can forgive them— …we must remember that taking our cross upon ourselves includes being humble and trusting in God and in His infinite wisdom…” — Ulisses Soares (more…)

 “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

While gathering notes for this article I was listening to praise music, and the song listed above repeated itself. It obviously caught my attention, thus its inclusion here!

The hymn serves as a good reminder of how we’re incapable of fulfilling God’s requirements for salvation! This upcoming holiday is an ever present reminder of how grateful I am for His mercy upon me.

Today we’re looking at three talks, and providing short quotes from each. Sadly, the quotes earned a place in our next installment, ‘Worst of the Worst’ list. Sigh…

Please note the numbering system we’ve used here is purely ours, and doesn’t reflect which order their talks were given.

Acts 17:26; “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

The phrase ‘if a picture could paint a thousand words’ seems to be an apt way to introduce events that took place in the LDS Church this past weekend. Imagine the story a picture would tell with the new set of LDS apostles

Mr. Gerrit Gong, and Mr. Ulisses Soares are the first non-white men appointed as LDS apostles. Mr. Gong is from China, and Mr. Soares, Brazil.

The appointment of the two men was indeed historic, but not in the way the Church has bragged about it. Once again, they’ve proven to be false prophets and apostles.

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, April 2015, “Yes, We Can and Will Win!”; “We cannot allow ourselves to be confused by popular messages that are easily accepted by the world and that contradictulisses-soares the doctrine and true principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many of these worldly messages represent nothing more than an attempt of our society to justify sin. …All of us can receive the strength to choose the right if we seek the Lord and place all our trust and faith in Him. …

… Because of the wave of confusion and doubts spreading throughout the world today, we must hold ever more tightly to our testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Then will our ability to defend truth and justice greatly increase. We will win the daily battles against evil, and, rather than fall on the battlefields of life, we will rally others to the Master’s standards.
