October 2014 LDS General Conference

October 2014 LDS General ConferenceOver the next couple of weeks Melissa and I will be posting articles on the latest LDS General Conference so be on the lookout! In the meantime I wanted to highlight a couple of the things I picked up on from comments made by the leadership that once again made me wonder why…

Why do they continue to lie?

I retrieved info from the Herald Extra on October 5, 2014.

Carol F. McConkie –

 “In a world threatened by famine of righteousness and spiritual starvation, we have been commanded to sustain the prophet,” Sis. Carol F. McConkie said. “According to the world’s standards, following the prophet may be unpopular, politically incorrect or socially unacceptable. But following the prophet is always right.””

For the record, there have been untold thousands who followed the very words of men like Brigham Young who taught that Adam is God, yet the Church is now back peddling on that divine teaching imparted of the Mormon god.

This is proof that what Ms. McConkie stated is a lie. The LDS prophets aren’t ‘always right’.

Henry Eyring –

“His voice took on strength as he testified of continuing revelation in the church – the prophet receiving revelation for the church; the president receiving for his stake, his mission or his quorum; the bishop for his congregation or ward; and the individual for him or herself.”

Truth: there hasn’t been a revelation given by any LDS prophet since the days of prophet #12 Spencer W. Kimball in 1978 when they accepted blacks into the Church.

This is proof Mr. Eyring lied. Neither Ezra Taft Benson, Howard W. Hunter, Gordon B. Hinckley, nor Thomas S. Monson have received a new revelation from God for the Mormon people. We have a list of Mormon prophets on our site.

Russell M. Nelson –

“…spoke of prophets and how to sustain or show support of their leadership.

“My dear brothers and sisters, if the restoration did anything, it shattered the age-old myth that God had stopped talking to His children,” Nelson said. “A prophet has stood at the head of God’s church in all dispensations, from Adam to the present day.””

Truth: Christians never questioned God’s presence and never paid heed to any myths swirling around that man tried to pass off as truth. All Christians know full well that God speaks to us through His word and His Spirit that resides inside each believer. Furthermore, Adam was not a Christian and there were no Christian churches before Jesus was born.

This is proof that this LDS apostle lied.

Now these are just three short snippets of what LDS leaders had to say this time around so you can just imagine the amount of untruths that were told.

We’re asking that you pray for the Mormons who listened and/or attended this conference that God will open their hearts. We’re praying Mormons will think about statements that were made and they’d question the validity of the Church’s authority and the stories they tried to pass off as truth.

With Love in Christ;

Michelle

    Personally I think it is a little closed minded to assume that all God has said to His prophets were written down and given only to the what the extent of the Bible has gone. To think that Adam or didn’t know about Christ seems a little naive seeing that all through out the Old Testament the prophets prophesied of the coming of Christ, Isiah being one of many examples. Obviously every revelation and every impression God ever delivered to man or to a prophet has not been recorded or written so it’s really unfair to say that President Monson hasn’t received any revelation. Do you think that Paul and the Apostle just stumbled around and preached because they felt like it? Revelation can be the mere impression to go somewhere because that’s where the Lord needs you. Further more to throw me some quotes and scripture of people taken out of context and used for your own personal agenda doesn’t seem very Christlike in of itself. I think I’ll stick to reading studying pondering and doing as James 1:5-6 directs and Ask God in Faith. Surely God would prefer honest questioning than blind fear and ignorance. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is the fruit of Joseph Smith, wherefore while the Church may not have a monopoly on the Gospel Truth it does have a monopoly on Authority. I would invite you to remember that with God all things are possible so please don’t harden your hearts against something you don’t seem to care to understand or attempt to find common ground on when there is a war on faith in general. So you didn’t agree on things some things you didn’t think were true. OK that’s fine your’e entitled to your’e opinion. So do you in keeping the commandments to be chaste? How about serving others? Do you believe in keeping marriage sacred and holy? Do you believe in the family? Do you believe in being responsible in your role in your family and in society? I mean seriously are you so self righteous that you think you’re doing the Lord a favor to go and smear someone else’s beliefs? I get it, go share the Gospel but can you be a bit more constructive about it? I baptized my mother into the Church about a year ago and since then her and some of the sisters are knitting items for people fighting cancer. I literally tried on a beanie that she knit for people going through chemo and have lost their hair.

    Matthew 7:2 – For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    So I’m going to ask that you be careful with the fingers you’re pointing because your confirmation bias is definitely showing. I wish you well in any case and i say them with love hoping for your happiness and well being.
