Proverbs 30:5; “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”
Doctrinal Commentary on the Pearl of Great Price, pp. 137-181; “Procreation is the key to the origin of human life, so far as the method of its organization is concerned, and transplantation is the key to how man arrived on earth. Having formed a body and placed man’s organized spirit therein, the Gods then ‘put’ the man in the garden. Before this, however, seeds had been brought to the newly organized earth and planted to bring forth the garden in which Adam was placed. [Abr 5:7-8; Moses 3:7-8.]”” – Hyrum L. Andrus, 1998
Genesis 1:27, 2:7; “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
My heart breaks whenever I read blasphemous doctrines like we’ve seen in our LDS example today.
The sure cure of breaking the cycle of false doctrines is trusting God’s word. Each and every time, for each and every topic in life!
The question for today is this –
How do you go knocking on doors with a Bible you don’t trust in, or believe?
Hyrum L. Andrus, the author of the quote today, held a PhD, and was a prolific author of all things LDS. A comment on the ‘About’ page for Mr. Andrus noted he could quote all LDS scripture, as well as large portions from the Journal of Discourses.
The guy was obviously smart, and again, this tells us that what Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:11-12 is very true! This isn’t about flesh and blood, but the powers and principalities of the air.
Mr. Andrus’ remarks don’t have anything to do with your level of intellect. It has everything to do with having a relationship with the One True God of the Bible, vs. a belief in the religion you’ve espoused. Clearing the thoughts of His children to think clearly, is one of the ways God protects us when we trust in Him and His word.
You don’t need a PhD to understand that Andrus’ comment was far from biblical, or even logical.
