Tip of the Day, August 21

21 August

August 21 – Genesis 15:18;  “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.”

Notice in today’s lesson that when the true God of Israel makes a covenant, it is forever.  Today the people of Israel are still in Israel.  Notice the false prophecy in the Mormon’s world; it’s another promise broken by their god.

Ask a Mormon today how they can trust him.  All of the people in the Book of Mormon were killed off, so how could the people of Lehi have the Americas as a land of inheritance forever?  What kind of covenant is this?

Mormon Doctrine, pg. 167 says; “To Lehi the covenant was vouchsafed that America should be a land of inheritance for his seed forever. (2 Ne. 1.) A similar promise came to the saints this day. (D. & C. 38:20.) As part of the great Abrahamic covenant, a special land inheritance was offered Israel. (Gen. 17.)”
