Encyclopedia of Mormonism, p. 1538 “For Latter-day Saints, the phrase “voice from the dust” speaks of the coming-forth of the Book of Mormon (cf. 2 Ne. 25:18; 26:16), which was translated from metal plates buried in the ground for fourteen centuries. As early as Joseph Smith, LDS leaders have consistently indicated that this phrase applies to the Book of Mormon (PJS, p. 307; Hinckley, p. 10). This distinctive phrase and others like it usually appear in a context that speaks of the need for repentance and of an accompanying voice of warning that will “whisper out of the dust” (Isa. 29:4).” – Daniel H. Ludlow, 1992 (more…)

May all we do honor, and glorify Christ Jesus and Him crucified. 1 Corinthians 10:31

I pray that as visitors read over the materials presented here it’s accepted in the manner intended, and that’s with heartfelt respect for the Lord, as well as the Mormon people.

The last message I’d want to convey is one of animosity, or ridicule.

With this said, there’s an important part of Mormonism in desperate need of light. In the past few years the momentum of shedding light upon Joe Smith’s history has grown, but we mustn’t be lax, nor take a step back.

Members of the LDS Church deserve the truth, which is something they’re definitely not receiving from their leaders. Because of their shortfalls, ministries, and now even the secular world, has had to step up to the plate.  (more…)

March 7 – Witchcraft. Leviticus 20:27; “A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.”

In Christ Alone

“In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live…

Each month the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints publishes a section on their website for their Visiting Teachers. Until recently, one could find a lesson plan to follow and share with those whom they’re assigned to visit. At first glance the new format looks pretty harmless, but don’t let looks fool you!

Now they’re wanting the Visiting Teachers to basically ‘wing it’ when they go out on their monthly visits. Instead of providing a format for teachers to follow, they’re instructed to ‘pray and seek inspiration’  for what they should share with the one they’re visiting.

Galatians 1:6-8; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” [emp. mine]

Yesterday we looked at divining rods; a hobby Joseph Smith picked up from his father.

Today we’re onto another topic within that same genre, only this time we’re looking at a recurring experience Smith had while he was a prophet. Visiting angels. More specifically, Moroni, the angel of light.

Isaiah 45:22 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

One of my all time favorite Christmas songs is ‘O, Holy Night’.  The words, ‘fall on  your knees’, reminds us of what it says in Matthew 2:11 when the wise men fell down to worship the newborn King of Israel. The song’s four simple words commands attention of all who hear the words.

As I’ve reflected on that song this holiday season, my thoughts also go to the numerous times the Church has brazenly touted Joe Smith’s use of occult methods in producing the Book of Mormon. Their list of articles is exhaustive… Today we’re taking a quick look at how the Church methodically chronicles Mormon historical events without giving any new revelations, nor do they provide any info on their church’s namesake, that being Jesus.
