December 31 – Jude 1:24-25; “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
He alone is the One who saves; He alone is the Only Begotten Son. To Him is all the glory! My prayer is for the Mormon to know how precious this passage is to me and all of us who call Him Lord and God. There’s not one Mormon who believes in the Trinity so ask them what they think about the opening page of the Book of Mormon. Then think about this for a moment and ask yourself; haven’t we all been the woman in John chapter eight; and being so, where would we be if the Mormon Church was right?
“…the woman thrown at the feet of the Redeemer for judgment…But did the Lord forgive the woman? Could he forgive her? There seems to be no evidence of forgiveness. His command to her was, “Go, and sin no more.” He was directing the sinful woman to go her way, abandon her evil life, commit no more sin, transform her life. He was saying, Go, woman, and start your repentance; and he was indicating to her the beginning step-to abandon her transgressions….The Lord’s prophet Amulek had said emphatically: “. . . Ye cannot be saved in your sins.” (Al. 11:37. Italics added.) It was this same Lord Jesus Christ who made the laws, and he must observe them. Accordingly, how could he have forgiven the woman in her deep sin? When she had had time to repent; when she had abandoned her evil ways and evil associates; when she had made restitution so far as she could; and when she had proved by her works and the living of the commandments that she was “born again” and was a new creature-when she had done these things the forgiveness of the Savior could overshadow her and claim her and give her peace.” Spencer W. Kimball, The Miracle of Forgiveness, pg. 165.
