The Church of Jesus  Christ of Latter-day Saints has seen its fair share of changes throughout time. We’ve seen prophets who were all but silent in their tenure, which of course means Joe Smith and Brigham Young who were endowed with mouths like no others. We’ve also seen LDS prophets who barely made a peep. The one in charge today, (Russell Nelson), is anything but quiet.

Mr. Nelson’s priorities are shaping up to be quite the scene. He seems to be hung up on everyone using the name of the Church properly. This scenario began last year and has continued on through 2019 as well.

Last year we also saw a dissolution of the Visiting Teaching Messages, and the rearrangement of their priesthood. This year they’re backtracking on excluding kids of gay people, and now we’re witnessing record numbers of people leaving. The first thing that came to mind was, ‘oops’. Apparently the Mormon god didn’t foresee the ramifications of what it’d mean to exclude innocent children from his kingdom.

This is what happens when you try to hide evil. Eventually truth prevails.

Here are the numbers for 2019. As you’ll see, the only news that remained the same was the downward trend of their ‘inspired works’.

Above all else, please, pray that those who are actively involved, will stand up, walk out, and accept the Jesus of the Bible as their true Savior!

With Love in Christ;
