Adultery: The Sin Next to Murder, Virtue Worth More Than Life
Hebrews 4:16; “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
In Spencer W. Kimball’s 1969 publication titled ‘The Miracle of Forgiveness’, he ranked sexual sin as ‘one of the most diabolical crimes’ known to mankind.
Digging himself deeper into the cesspool of lies, he also pleaded with the younger generations to protect their chastity, stating it was more important than life. We’ve listed a few of the most outrageous quotes from his book to determine if they’re theologically sound. Check it out!
The Miracle of Forgiveness [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1969], p. 61-64;“Next to Murder in Seriousness … The enormity of this sin is underlined by numerous scriptures, and particularly by Alma’s words to his immoral son:
Know ye not, my son, that these things are an abomination in the sight of the Lord; yea, most abominable above all sins save it be the shedding of innocent blood or denying the Holy Ghost? (Al. 39:5.) … David O. McKay has pleaded:
“… Your virtue is worth more than your life. Please, young folk, preserve your virtue even if you lose your lives. … Nearly always those who lose their chastity first partake of those things that excite passions within them or lower their resistance and becloud their minds. … those things which, if indulged in, are worse than death itself. There is no true Latter-day Saint who would not rather bury a son or a daughter than to have him or her lose his or her chastity-realizing that chastity is of more value than anything else in all the world.” – Spencer W. Kimball
2 Corinthians 1:3-4; “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”
The Miracle of Forgiveness is on my list of the top ten evil books of Mormonism. I wouldn’t even know how to quantify how awful this book is, and from what I’ve learned over time, I’m not alone. Only the good Lord knows the amount of irreparable harm its caused to countless Mormons since its first edition in 1969.
1.God does forgive sexual sin, and it’s not through the means of works, but the blood Jesus shed on the cross!
2.Arbitrarily condemning rape victims for losing their chastity is a sad testament to the unwise calling of this man into such a high position of prophet.
3.True saints of God would never, ever choose the death of a child over their loss of virginity.
4.The Bible in no way, shape or form, has ever given a top ten of which sins are the worst. Jesus said all sins will be forgiven except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
5.Biblically speaking, how and why is sexual sin one of the most ‘diabolical’ sins?
For those who believe Mr. Kimball’s words are true, please, rethink this! There are many verses in God’s word stating otherwise dear one. If you want prayer, give us a call, or drop us a note!
