Every six months (April and October) the LDS Church holds a General Conference in Salt Lake City.
These all important conferences are filled with speeches from the General Authorities (prophet and apostles, as well as Relief Society president, etc) who deliver inspirational reminders of how church members should behave. The main theme each time they do this is to declare their prophet Joseph Smith was chosen of God to make salvation available to mankind.
Because the conferences are broadcasted worldwide Mormon ward buildings are locked tight and their typical Sunday services are cancelled. Members are strongly encouraged to either attend the conference or stay home and watch it on their televisions.
The conference talks are subsequently made available on their website within a few days as well as printed in their monthly publication of the Ensign.
We typically highlight one or two of the talks each time they’re held so below you’ll find a selection of what we’ve found interesting!
For the first time since the ’80’s people stood up to give a vote of no-confidence when electing the general officers for another year. Did their vote count or even matter? We don’t know yet!
We’ve highlighted just 3 of the more interesting talks given at conference in April 2015. Be fruitful and multiply, using Jesus discourse about the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and Monson’s talk on having the spirit of temple worship were the topics we focused on this time around.
This Mormon apostle wants people to believe when members receive a testimony they’re witnesses for God. Truth: the testimonies of Mormons all mimic each other and aren’t witnesses for God, but witnesses for Mormonism.
3 lies told by 3 LDS leaders at GC in October 2014. Following the prophet is always right, the Church has continuing revelation and Adam is a Christian.
Bednar addressed non-members worldwidw to explain what Mormon missionaries are doing. We’re wondering if the non-members were alerted?
The 3 links above provide info on the message ‘Approaching the Throne of God with Confidence’ provided by Jörg Klebingat at the October 2014 General Conference. His message contradicted the title of his message as well as the Bible.

A look at the New Era Magazine that’s published for the Mormon youth and the lies they’re fed about God, their prophets and how their dead relatives can help them today.
Telling people who are thinking of leaving that they should doubt their doubts and telling people the Church has made mistakes should be a red flag to everyone who’s in Mormonism or thinking about joining Mormonism!
How do you trust these men when they admit they’ve made mistakes in the past and they don’t reveal the truth about where tithes go?
