Worst of the Worst: Bible Not Big, Nor Good Enough For LDS

10 December

Follow the Living Prophets, pp. 112-113; “Relying only upon canonized scriptures, observed President Wilford Woodruff, “would scarcely be sufficient to guide us twenty-four hours” (in Journal of Discourses 9:324)…Elder Orson F. Whitney said:… The Latter-day Saints do not do things because they happen to be printed in a book. They do not do things because God told the Jews to do them; nor do they do or leave undone anything because of the instructions that Christ gave to the Nephites.

Whatever is done by this Church is because God, speaking from heaven in our day, has commanded this Church to do it. No book presides over this Church, and no book lies at its foundation. You cannot pile up books enough to take the place of God’s priesthood… That is the constitution of the Church of Christ. … Divine revelation adapts itself to the circumstances and conditions of men, and change upon change ensues as God’s progressive work goes on to its destiny. There is no book big enough or good enough to preside over this Church. (In Conference Report, October 1916, p. 55.)” [emp. mine]

1 Corinthians 15:1-4; “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”.

Isaiah 40:8; “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our God shall stand forever.”

Originally, I had scheduled this LDS reference as a Daily Witnessing Tip only. However, as I prayed about this, the more I knew God wanted me to use it here as well.

Mr. Whitney’s words are enough to shock any God-fearing Christian. In my reactive, self-serving attitude many things came rushing through my thoughts as I looked over his statement several times, but my reaction did nothing to bring glory to the Lord.

That said, today we’re taking a quick look at his words in order to provide a mega-sized warning to the body of Christ. I urge you beloved brothers and sisters in Christ to stop, and give serious pause to these evil words from a man who’s obviously bereft of love for God Almighty.

“Relying only upon canonized scripture…would scarcely be sufficient to guide us twenty-four hours…

This is sad considering canonized scripture has tutored man for roughly 4,000 yrs now, and its precepts have been a handy reference guide on virtually every topic known tomankind.

The Latter-day Saints do not do things because they happen to be printed in a book.

Again, this is a rather arrogant point on which to stand. If it’s true, then why does the Church carry the Bible around with them, and what’s the purpose of their other 3 books that comprise their authorized canon, meaning the BoM, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price?

They do not do things because God told the Jews to do them; nor do they do or leave undone anything because of the instructions that Christ gave to the Nephites. Whatever is done by this Church is because God, speaking from heaven in our day, has commanded this Church to do it.

Hebrews 1:1-2 tells us that God has spoken to man in this day and age through His Son Jesus Christ. The days of God’s prophets roaming the earth as they once did, is over with. There are no new revelations because God has fulfilled those things through giving us His Son.

No book presides over this Church, and no book lies at its foundation. You cannot pile up books enough to take the place of God’s priesthood… That is the constitution of the Church of Christ. …

Well, according to leaders in the Church, the BoM sits at the foundation of the LDS Church so Mr. Whitney might want to check that out!

Book of Mormon, Keystone to Our Religion

Ezra Taft Benson, “The Book of Mormon—Keystone of Our Religion,” Ensign, Nov 1986, 4; “There are three great reasons why Latter-day Saints should make the study of the Book of Mormon a lifetime pursuit.

The first is that the Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion. This was the Prophet Joseph Smith’s statement. He testified that “the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion” (Introduction to the Book of Mormon). A keystone is the central stone in an arch. It holds all the other stones in place, and if removed, the arch crumbles.”

Divine revelation adapts itself to the circumstances and conditions of men, and change upon change ensues as God’s progressive work goes on to its destiny. There is no book big enough or good enough to preside over this Church. (In Conference Report, October 1916, p. 55.)”

Only a non-Christian would state such a thing! God doesn’t react to the circumstances man creates for himelf. I could go on and on here, but I’m sure you’re able to do the same.

One thing is absolutely certain, those who’ve believed this man’s teachings are in great need of our prayers, and the time it takes to share truth. The words of this guy are above the top blasphemous, and my heart for one is shocked and sad beyond words.

With Love in Christ;

Michelle
