Millennial Star, No. 17, Vol. 56, 23 Apr. 1894, 260 “If any of us are imperfect, it is our duty to pray for the gift that will make us perfect. Have I imperfections? I am full of them. What is my duty? To pray to God to give me the gifts that will correct these imperfections. …
He wants His Saints to be perfected in the truth. For this purpose He gives these gifts, and bestows them upon those who seek after them, in order that they may be a perfect people upon the face of the earth, notwithstanding their many weaknesses, because God has promised to give the gifts that are necessary for their perfection.” — George Cannon
Hebrews 10:14-18 “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”
The Church has used Mr. Cannon’s speech a few times in various publications. The latest of which can be found in Tad Callister’s speech in the April 2019 General Conference, the original listed above, and a random listing we found from three years ago in the Liahona Magazine. It’d be no surprise if there were other listings since its original publication 125 years ago.
Our prayer is for the Mormon people to see how futile it is to keep reading, and believing the false doctrines they recycle to distract from truth. Jesus paid the price for sin with His blood so that we may be found perfect in the eyes of God 2 Corinthians 5:21.
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”
LDS Church leaders keep preaching, ‘oh look, salvation is over here’, and the next week they’re pointing in another direction. There is no way to true salvation except through the blood of the Lamb which was shed for us! This is true redemption beloved. It’s not found in hoping God will perfect us if we pray the correct prayer, or knowing a secret name whispered in ears while performing necromantic rituals in a temple.
It’s Christ Jesus and Him crucified, and it’s the same message the Bible preached 2,000 years ago.
If you’re LDS, please be honest with yourself, and ask why you’re living under the Law when Jesus fulfilled the Law.
With Love in Christ;
