Tip of the Day, December 10

10 December

December 10 – 1 Peter 2:6; “Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”

Our Lord is so good to us!  Here He promises that we shall never be confounded when we believe in Him.  The Greek word for confounded is kataischunoô.  It means to shame down, dishonored or disgraced.  Now the Mormon teachings say that if you ever speak against the Church you will be confounded.  I don’t know of anyone yet who this has happened to, myself included.
