 Journal of Discourses 5:83-84 “…if the Prophet of God should tell me that a certain principle or theory which I might have learned was not true, I do not care what my ideas might have been, I should consider it my duty, as the suggestion of my file leader, to abandon that principle or theory.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, April 9, 1857

 August 30 – Jeremiah 14:14 “Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”

We posted the following article in 2015, but they still haven’t denounced this idolatrous teaching!

If you’re LDS, is this what you expect from your leaders?

Daily Journal of Abraham H. Cannon, April 15, 1894, v. 18, p. 70; “Father [George Q. Cannon] now spoke of the unfortunate condition of the people at present in regard to marriage…. ‘I believe in concubinage, or some plan whereby men and women can live together under sacred ordinances and vows until they can be married…. such a condition would have to be kept secret, until the laws of our government change to permit the holy order of wedlock which God has revealed, which will undoubtedly occur at no distant day, in order to correct the social evil….’

– Pres. Snow. ‘I have no doubt but concubinage will yet be practiced in this church, but I had not thought of it in this connection. When the nations are troubled good women will come here for safety and blessing, and men will accept them as concubines.’
– Pres. Woodruff: ‘If men enter into some practice of this character to raise a righteous posterity, they will be justified in it…’” (more…)

Journal of Discourses 5:83 “Now, whatever I might have obtained in the shape of learning, by searching and study respecting the arts and sciences of men—whatever principles I may have imbibed during my scientific researches, yet, if the Prophet of God should tell me that a certain principle or theory which I might have learned was not true, I do not care what my ideas might have been, I should consider it my duty, at the suggestion of my file leader, to abandon that principle or theme. Supposing he were to say the principles by which you are governed are not right—that they were incorrect, what would be my duty? I answer that it would be my duty to lay those principles aside, and to take up those that might be laid down by the servants of God.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, April 9, 1857 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 10:15 “Who can stay this war that is devastating the whole nation both North and South? No human hand; it is out of the power of man, excepting by the repentance of the whole nation, for they have shed the blood of the Prophets, driven this Church and people from their midst, yes, the very people that hold the keys of salvation for the world they have banished from their midst, they have turned those keys that will seal their condemnation, and for this the Lord our God has taken peace out of their midst. Will there ever be any more peace among them? No, not until the earth is drenched with the blood of the inhabitants thereof.” – Wilford Woodruff, Great Salt Lake, July 27, 1862 (more…)

Wilford Woodruff’s Journal 2:174 “26 August 1843 Elder B Young next spoke & made some useful remarks. Said the scriptures had been mistifyed to that degree that the greatest divine of the day is as ignorant as the … concerning the things of God. They don’t know their right hand from their left…” [Spelling as in original.] (more…)

Journal of Discourses 13:166 “I wish life eternal. I want salvation…This principle of inspiration has sustained the Elders of Israel in every age of the world. It is that which sustained Joseph Smith from the day he commenced his career as a servant of God until the time that he sealed his testimony with his blood. Somebody has got to pay the bill for the shedding of that innocent blood.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, December 12, 1869

Journal of Discourses 23:327; “Those that live godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecution. I believe myself, from the reading of the revelations of God, that it is necessary for a people who are destined to inherit the celestial kingdom to be a tried people. I have never read of the people of God in any dispensation passing through life, as the sectarian world would say, on flowery beds of ease, without opposition of any kind. I have always looked upon the life of our Savior—who descended beneath all things that He might rise above all things—as an example for His followers.” –  Wilford Woodruff, Kaysville, Utah, December 10, 1882

Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

As we approach Christmas Day, we believe it’s important for this ministry to loudly proclaim the whole reason for the season, as the saying goes! That said, over the next few days we’re looking at the basics of both Christianity, and Mormonism. Our topic:

Who is Jesus?

We’re looking at the very basics of what God has revealed about His Son through His word, and comparing it with what Mormon leaders have always taught about Him. To be sure, the LDS references we’re looking at aren’t some obscure blips of info pulled from a dusty old shelf, rather, these are common teachings/doctrines of Mormonism all members will be able to recognize, and affirm, this is the god they worship.

Wilford Woodruff Journal Selections, p. 87; “Dec 25,1879 – Stake Conference in Snowflake, Arizona, “Wilford Woodruff said, he did not believe that any person who lived to see 1890 would be able to see any United States, for he believed the Union would be broken by that time.””

May 1888

New Mormon History Database; “At the dedication of the Manti temple, Wilford Woodruff says, “We are not going to stop the practice of plural marriage until the Coming of the Son of Man.” … While in the temple, Woodruff “Consecrated upon the Altar the [brown] seers Stone that Joseph Smith found by Revelation some 30 feet under the Earth.”” – May 1888, D. Michael Quinn

Six Months Later, December 1888…

Wilford Woodruff 2 Journal of Discourses 23:330-331; “It is our duty to build these temples. It is our duty to enter into them and redeem our dead. Joseph Smith is preaching to the spirits in prison; so are all the elders who have died in the faith. There are millions of them there, and they must have the gospel offered to them.

James 1:13; “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”

LDS LeadersA few days ago we looked at the Mormon’s version of the first man, Adam. See More LDS Contradictions about Adam, pt. 1. Today we’re finishing that up with a number of LDS quotes made by a variety of LDS leaders from Joe Smith, on down.

The one thing to keep in mind while looking over these quotes is God’s word. What would He want for us to know about Adam, and how does the Christian apply this to their daily walk with Him? Equally important, how do we share what we know with the Mormon people?

Divorce Among Mormon Polygamists: Extent and Explanations, p. 9; “An interesting glimpse of this Wilford Woodruff 2period is provided by a letter from Wilford Woodruff to George A. Smith in April 1857: We George A Smithhave had a great reformation this winter; some of the fruits are: all have confessed their sins either great or small, restored their stolen property; all have been baptized from the presidency down; all are trying to pay their tithing and nearly all are trying to get wives, until there is hardly a girl 14 years old in Utah, but what is married, or just going to be. President Young has hardly time to eat, drink or sleep, in consequence of marrying the people and attending the endowments.” – Eugene E. Campbell and Bruce L. Campbell

What Do Mormons Think of the Virgin Mary2Thirty-seven.
Number of people and/or books referenced in this article, ‘What Do Mormons Think of the Virgin Mary?’

Eighty-five.

Number of citations you’ll find in our list for ‘What Do Mormons Think of the Virgin Mary?’

One.

The number of unpardonable sins.

Mark 3:28-29; “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.”

Matthew 15:8-9; “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

The Occult in Mormonism and the Life of Joseph SmithWhat God-fearing Christian doesn’t know, and treat with awe, the words of Christ in this passage?  I don’t know of any. Do you?

One sign that Mormonism doesn’t qualify as a Christian church is because of statements made by their leaders we’re looking at today. Pray for them, won’t you? Their comments are so brazen and rebellious, it immediately stops me in my tracks.

I’m not so much concerned about the disregard for their own canon, as I am about the word of God. Obviously, if they truly loved Jesus, they’d heed His precious words.

The garish images on the left are but a few of the resources Mormonism relies upon. Coupled with the comments we see today, they stand as a testament to what’s going on inside their hearts.

saint-george-mormon-templeNothing in Mormonism is simple. Every subject matter is invariably linked to something else of major import, and thus it is with my discovery today.

While retrieving info for a future article on Wilford Woodruff, Wilford Woodruff 2Mormonism’s 4th president/prophet, I came across the quote I was looking for in a speech Mr. Woodruff made on posthumous baptisms for deceased US Presidents. I found his teachings so blasphemous I couldn’t let them slide on by as I’ve had to do in the past with many of the other things Mormon leaders have said.

Mormon Decisions 10Necromancy and the LDS Church.Elijah at Kirtland Temple

Today we’re looking at what the Lord says about this, and the LDS practice of talking to dead people. They seem to have an affinity for this behavior and unfortunately, it didn’t stop with Joseph Smith.

Mormon Decisions 10Journal of Discourses 22:173; “The Lamanites, now a down-trodden people, are a remnant of the house of Israel. The curse of God has followed them as it has done the Jews, though the Jews have not been darkened in their skin as have the Lamanites. The fate of the Jews in this respect is a standing monument to all infidelity.” – Wilford Woodruff, Salt Lake City, June 12, 1881
