Journal of Discourses 19:64 “Now, little children, can you conceive what kind of a being this is? You say, “It’s nothing at all.” That is just what it is; it is a myth; it is nothing to look at, nothing to adore, nothing to worship, nothing to admire, nothing to appeal to for help. He has no arms to either handle us or our enemies; he has no legs, he can neither walk to them nor to us; he has no eyes to behold their follies or ours. And this is the god that the Christian world worship, and teach their children to worship. Now, children, remember this. We teach you that our Father in heaven is a personage of tabernacle, just as much as I am who stand before you today, and he has all the parts and passions of a perfect man, and his body is composed of flesh and bones, but not of blood.” – Brigham Young, Delivered to Sunday School Children, Salt Lake City, July 24, 1877
Colossians 1:13-16 “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him”.
It’s been 141 yrs since Brigham delivered the speech referenced above, and Mormon kids today are still being taught the same lies. A quick glance over this year’s magazines for children and youth (Liahona, and Friend) tell the stories of how not one teaching came from the Bible in a true manner.
Please be sure to pray for the kids, and share the truth about God and Jesus with the Mormon you know!
With Love in Christ;
