Families Essential to the Lord’s Plan – Mormon Quotes

Liahona, January 2002, pg. 80; Our family is the focus of our greatest work and joy in this life; so will it be throughout all eternity.

With the Lord, families are essential. He created the earth that we could gain physical bodies and form families (see D&C 2:1–3). He established His Church to exalt families. He provides temples so that families can be together forever (see D&C 138:47–48).”” – Russell Nelson

Psalm 19:1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.” Also see Psalm 24:1148:1-5Nehemiah  9:6Exodus 20:11Gen. 1:2125.

Ephesians 4:11-12And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Also see Romans 12:4-8 & 1 Corinthians 12:121417-27

1 Corinthians 3:16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”  Also see 1 Corinthians 6:19.

As you can see there are many heretical statements made in that quote so the best thing to do is take it apart sentence by sentence for a rebuttal.  Nothing in what Mr. Nelson had to say was truth and in case you’re not aware, the Liahona is a magazine produced by the Church for children.

He was lying to little kids.

One more thing – isn’t our greatest work to love the Lord your God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself?  This is called “Shema” – Mark 12:28-31Deuteronomy 6:4-6.
