Journal of Discourses 26:65 “Now, I have heard that there are men among us who are professing to cure witchcraft and other evils of that kind. I believe they call themselves astrologers. More injurious ideas and practices than these cannot be introduced among a people to lead them to destruction, and I wish to warn you before sitting down, in regard to this. Do not seek for those who have peepstones, for soothsayers, and for those who profess to be able to counteract the influence of witchcraft. They who say so, seek to play upon your fears, they seek to take advantage of superstitious fears, and seek to use them for their own advantage and bring those who will listen to them in bondage to an influence and spirit that is as foreign to the spirit of God as hell is foreign to heaven. Any man who professes to have this authority, to have this power, and to use power outside of that which the Priesthood authorizes, is a man that should not be listened to; his claims are false, and his methods are from beneath and not from God.” – George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, December 14, 1884
Leviticus 20:6-7 “And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God.”
Oops. Now what?
Does Mr. Cannon’s insight from God mean it’s bad news for all of Mormonism? Everything given to Joe Smith through the god he talked to was done through the means of peep-stones, astrology, and other nefarious manners of witchcraft.
Again, my heart breaks for the Mormon people! If you’re LDS, what if any concerns does this bring to your thoughts?
We’re praying Mormons will come to the foot of the cross where they’ll find forgiveness of sins from the true Jesus of the Bible!
With Love in Christ;
