General Conference, ‘The Power of Sustaining Faith’, April 2019 “…By raising your hand to sustain, you make a promise. You make a promise with God, whose servants these are, that you will sustain them. …These are imperfect human beings, as are you. Keeping your promises will take unshakable faith that the Lord called them. … President George Q. Cannon gave a warning that I pass on to you as my own. I believe he spoke the truth: “God has chosen His servants. He claims it as His prerogative to condemn them, if they need condemnation. He has not given it to us individually to censure and condemn them. No man, however strong he may be in the faith, however high in the Priesthood, can speak evil of the Lord’s anointed and find fault with God’s authority on the earth without incurring His displeasure. The Holy Spirit will withdraw himself from such a man, and he will go into darkness. This being the case, do you not see how important it is that we should be careful?”” — Henry Eyring
Jeremiah 23:16 “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.”
Acts 17:11 is a good example of what we as Christians should do whenever someone comes along teaching new doctrines. The Bereans searched the scriptures to see if what they heard was true.
Mr. Eyring’s threats of God’s wrath are indicative of the trouble going on behind the scenes. They know as well as anyone if they had truth, they wouldn’t be saying these things. The talks at this conference have exhibited signs of nervousness, and a last ditched attempt at controlling their flock.
Pray for Mormons not to be afraid of the empty threats made by these men, and pray for their leaders to denounce the lies!
With Love in Christ;
