Tip of the Day, October 17
October 17 – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4; “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
Remember also what Paul said in Galatians about another gospel? Remember these things when the Mormon missionary comes to your door or when your Mormon relative tries to tell you that their church is the way of salvation.
‘There is not that being that ever had the privilege of hearing the way of life and salvation set before him as it is written in the New Testament, and in the Book of Mormon, and in the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, by a Latter-day Saint, that can say that Jesus lives, that his Gospel is true; and at the same time say that Joseph Smith was not a Prophet of God. That is strong testimony, but it is true. No man can say that this book (laying his hand on the Bible) is true, is the word of the Lord, is the way, is the guide-board in the path, and a charter by which we may learn the will of God; and at the same time say, that the Book of Mormon is untrue; if he has had the privilege of reading it, or of hearing it read, and learning its doctrines.” Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses,1: 39.
(Remember also what Paul said in Galatians about another gospel?)
Some people create lies about out beliefs and teachings and then use them to prove us wrong. Other people reteach these lies, believing them to be true.
Even if you do not believe our teachings, please, take the time to know and understand what they really are.
