17 October

salt-lake-mormon-temple-2This year LDS authorities seemed to outdo themselves with some of their false teachings so we thought we’d pull some of their questionable quotes from their talks and list them here. To read the entire speech they came from, simply click on the appropriate link.

It’s Never Too Early and It’s Never Too Late

Bradley D. Foster

“Our Heavenly Father wants us to succeed because really, after all, they were His children before they were ours. As parents in Zion, you have received the gift of the Holy Ghost. As you pray for guidance, “it will show unto you all things what ye should do”7 …”

Remembering in Whom We Have Trusted

Allen D. Haynie

“When our Father in Heaven announced the need for a Savior, I believe all of us turned and looked at Jesus Christ, the Firstborn in the Spirit, the one who had progressed to the point of becoming like the Father. 4 I believe all of us knew it had to be Him, that none of the rest of us could do it, but that He could and that He would.

Although avoidance of sin is the preferred pattern in life, as far as the efficacy of the Atonement of Jesus Christ is concerned, it matters not what sins we have committed or how deep we have sunk into that proverbial pit. …

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we attribute greater power to the Savior’s Atonement than most other people because we know that if we make covenants, continually repent, and endure to the end, He will make us joint heirs with Him 20…”

Why the Church

D. Todd Christofferson

“Beginning with Adam, the gospel of Jesus Christ was preached, and the essential ordinances of salvation, such as baptism, were administered through a family-based priesthood order. …

…With the keys of the kingdom, the Lord’s servants can identify both truth and falsehood and once again authoritatively state, “Thus saith the Lord.” Regrettably, some resent the Church because they want to define their own truth, but in reality it is a surpassing blessing to receive a “knowledge of things as they [truly] are, and as they were, and as they are to come”30 insofar as the Lord wills to reveal it. The Church safeguards and publishes God’s revelations—the canon of scripture.”

“If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments”

Carole M. Stephens

“There is safety in following the word of the Lord through His prophets.”

That They Do Always Remember Him

Claudio R. M. Costa

“I am grateful for our leaders, who are constantly teaching us about Christ, about keeping the Sabbath day holy, and about partaking of the sacrament each Sunday in honor of the Savior.”

God Is at the Helm

M. Russell Ballard

“And make no mistake about it: the Lord directs His Church through living prophets and apostles. This is the way He has always done His work. Indeed, the Savior taught, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me.”3 We cannot separate Christ from His servants…”

It Works Wonderfully!

Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“Exaltation is our goal; discipleship is our journey.”

You Are Not Alone in the Work

Henry B. Eyring

“It is my prayer that every priesthood holder will reach out in faith to rescue every soul for whom he is responsible.”
