I'm Still Here

No, I have not abandoned this venue. I have had considerable academic responsibilities and have devoted myself to those endeavors, along with a nice archeological dig in Syria...

Nevertheless, I am as sincere as ever to advance the cause of God through Jesus Christ. (not the false-Christ of Mormonism, nor merely the prophet Isa of Islam, but Jesus the Messiah of the New Testament).

So many interesting things are happening in the world now. So many things are in place to bring about the anti-Christ. So many ancient prophecies are coming to pass.

Old men are dreaming dreams and young men are seeing visions. The Gospel is being preached throughout the world.

The end of this time is near. Soon we shall witness the glorious return of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

You better be ready.

Terry Jones - DON'T DO IT!

Ok, we all know that ISLAM is a made up religion from a demon posing as an angel of the Lord. But that doesn't mean you have to incite violence against our boys overseas.

Terry Jones, you are being used by Satan if you burn those books. Just don't do it!

Do you guys down there not teach the Golden Rule?

They're At It Again

The "Religion of Peace", that is.

It wasn't a little Mexican kid that planted a bomb in Times Square.

It wasn't a Jewish woman that planted a bomb in Times Square.

It wasn't a fat Baptist preacher that planted a bomb in Times Square.

It wasn't even a Mormon, Hindu, or Buddhist that planted a bomb in Times Square.

It was a Muslim from the Middle East.

Religion of Peace? Yeah, right.

Islam, Domestic Terrorism, and Political Correctness

Make no mistake, Dr. Nidal Hasan was an Islamic Jihadist. The murders were not just a fit of a madman, as the Army and national press want to make it out. It was domestic terrorism. If we don't quit being so concerned with political correctness, we (Americans) are all going to be paying for it with our own freedom.

The events at Ft Hood should wake us up to the fact that Islam IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE. It is a religion that follows as false god called Allah, either made up in the mind of a self-proclaimed prophet, Mohamed, or presented by a demon masquerading as an angel of God to trick Mohamed into tricking the world.

Remember the words of Paul: "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!" Galatians 1:8

Marcus says, "Don't hate Muslims; they are lost people looking for salvation. Show it to them through Jesus Christ!" People don't "convert" or "switch" from Islam to Christianity; they do it like everyone else- they get saved.

Not Exactly a Religion of Peace

Islam is not exactly a religion of peace when a cleric RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA opens fire on the FBI!

Read about it:

United States (Country threat level - 2): The leader of a local mosque died during a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raid of a warehouse on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn in the Detroit metropolitan area on 28 October 2009. Luqman Ameen Abdullah was the imam of the Masjid al-Haqq mosque located in Dearborn. The FBI filed charges against Abdullah and 11 of his followers for conspiracy to commit federal crimes and firearms offenses, prompting the suspects to flee to a warehouse. Abdullah refused to surrender and opened fire on the FBI agents. Reports indicate that Abdullah wanted to create an Islamist state within the United States governed by Islamic Shariah law. Abdullah allegedly had conversations with undercover agents and federal informants in which he discussed plans to attack the 2006 Super Bowl in Detroit.

God's Testimony

Hear now the Testimony of God as recorded by the prophet Isaiah~

Isaiah 43:10 "Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. "

Jesus quotes...

I found a very good question over on Mormon Coffee that no one seems to be interested in answering.

On November 3rd, I wrote:

Rick B has asked a very insightful question that (unless I missed it) no one has even attempted to answer.

Rick B asks, If Jesus quotes from the OT and speaks of kings and prophets that span 1,000 of years and different countries, even going so far as to go back before the flood, why does Jesus or the apostles NEVER mention BoM prophets, places, people, stories, or anything for that matter?

You would at least think that all of these people heading off for America would at least be MENTIONED in one of the OT stories, or alluded to by somebody.

So, what about this?

I agree with asking this question. If Jesus quotes prophets from the Old Testament, why didn't He quote prophets mentioned in the Book of Mormon? That seems to be a simple straight-forward question that deserves a real answer.

The Hill Cumorah

It is a good thing that Mormon apologists are able to create such scholarly works, otherwise the Church would look mighty foolish!

Take, for example, the Hill Cumorah in New York. Since the contrivance of Mormonism, it has been contended by Joseph Smith himself, his witnesses, and the following prophets that the Hill Cumorah in New York is the actual Hill Cumorah written about in the book of Mormon.

Lately, however, it appears that folks are worried, if real scientific scrutiny would be applied, the Hill wouldn't live up to it's claim.

So now, Mormons are saying that the Hill may be where JS found the golden tablets, but it isn't the same Hill where the great battles of the BoM took place.

How convenient!

The Hill Cumorah

This Mormon apologist writes:
"In summary, the archaeology of New York is persuasive evidence that Book of Mormon peoples did not live in that region. By implication, the Cumorah of the golden plates is not the Cumorah of the final battles."

In accord with these general observations about New York and Pennsylvania, we come to our principal object—the Hill Cumorah. Archaeologically speaking, it is a clean hill. No artifacts, no walls, no trenches, no arrowheads. The area immediately surrounding the hill is similarly clean. Pre-Columbian people did not settle or build here. This is not the place of Mormon’s last stand. We must look elsewhere for that hill."

John E. Clark, "Archaeology and Cumorah Questions," JBMS (Provo, UT: FARMS, 2004), pg 151

But, historically, the following has been stated about the Hill Cumorah:

"The great and last battle, in which several hundred thousand Nephites perished was on the hill Cumorah, the same hill from which the plates were taken by Joseph Smith, the boy about whom I spoke to you the other evening." (Talk given by Apostle Orson Pratt, Feb. 11, 1872 Journal of Discourses Vol. 14, pg. 331)

"These records were carried by Ether from the hill Ramah, afterwards called Cumorah, where the Jaredites were destroyed, as well as the Nephites." (Talk given by Apostle Orson Pratt, May 18, 1873 Journal of Discourses Vol. 16, pg. 50

"It will be, next Thursday night, 54 years since the Prophet Joseph Smith, then but a lad, was permitted by the angel of the Lord to take the gold plates of the Book of Mormon from the hill Cumorah, as it was called in ancient times, located in the State of New York. " (Talk given by Apostle Orson Pratt, Sept. 18, 1881 Journal of Discourses Vol. 22, pg. 224)

"The passages which I have quoted from the Book of Mormon and the more extended discussion of this subject by Elder B. H. Roberts which was published in The Deseret News of March 3, 1928, definitely establish the following facts: That the Hill Cumorah, and the Hill Ramah are identical; that it was around this hill that the armies of both the Jaredites and Nephites, fought their great last battles; that it was in this hill that Mormon deposited all of the sacred records which had been entrusted to his care by Ammaron, except the abridgment which he had made from the plates of Nephi, which were delivered into the hands of his' son, Moroni. We know positively that it was in this hill that Moroni deposited the abridgment made by his father, and his own abridgment of the record of the Jaredites, and that it was from this hill that Joseph Smith obtained possession of them. " (President Anthony W. Ivins, Conference Report, April 1928-Morning Session)

"The hill, which was known by one division of the ancient peoples as Cumorah, by another as Ramah, is situated near Palmyra in the State of New York ." (Apostle James E. Talmage, Articles of Faith , chapter 14)

"I have been asked to forward to you for acknowledgment and handling the enclosed copy of a letter to President Gordon B. Hinckley from Ronnie Sparks of your ward. Brother Sparks inquired about the location of the Hill Cumorah mentioned in the Book of Mormon, where the last battle between the Nephites and Lamanites took place.
The Church has long maintained, as attested to by references in the writings of General Authorities, that the Hill Cumorah in western New York state is the same as referenced in the Book of Mormon.
The Brethren appreciate your assistance in responding to this inquiry, and asked that you convey to Brother Sparks their commendation for his gospel study." (Letter from F. Michael Watson, Secretary to the First Presidency to Bishop Darrel L. Brooks, Moore Ward, OKC, October 16, 1990)

So, as status quo with Mormon apologists, "let's make up new rules to explain away the problem we have."

You can't have it both ways...

Why can't you guys just tell the truth?

Definition of Apostasy (with ads)

(click for larger version)

I was looking at the definition of apostasy when I noticed that there was a banner ad for the LDS proclaiming "Truth Restored". I think that is a very nice illustration for the word "apostasy".

Let's make certain

Ole Marcus wants to make one thing crystal clear here: he don't hate Mormons. He is extremely zealous/jealous for God and (the real) Jesus. He wants Mormons to know that they follow a false prophet. He wants Mormons to know that they really can have eternal life. Take a look at this website; it can say it much better than ole Marcus.

The Book of Mormon vs. The Bible

Here is a video that is well worth watching. It is about an hour in length, but it raises some issues/questions that are important.

Thursday, August 14, 2008

When the prophet speaks....

...the debate is over.

Well, if that is the case, let's look at some quotes from former Mormon leaders:

Joseph Fielding Smith, on page 192 of The Restoration of All Things, stated, "One of the most pernicious doctrines ever advocated by man, is the doctrine of 'justification by faith alone,' which has entered into the hearts of millions since the days of the so-called 'reformation.'" (When the prophet speaks, the debate is over, right? )

Spencer W. Kimball echoed the same sentiments in his book, The Miracle of Forgiveness. Under the sub-heading "Faith and Works" (p. 206), the 12th LDS President wrote, "In view of the emphasis thus far made on the importance of good works in returning from sin and establishing a repentant life, it may be well to say a word about the idea of salvation by faith alone. Some people not of our Church like to quote, in support of that concept, the following words of Paul: 'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.' (Eph. 2:8-9.)" Kimball went on to say, "One of the most fallacious doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by man is that man is saved alone by the grace of God; that belief in Jesus Christ alone is all that is needed for salvation."

That is utter blasphemy! Dear LDS members, you have been deceived. Your church is not teaching you about the Jesus that has the power to save you from your sins! They are teaching you about someone THEY call Jesus, who is not the genuine article.

Interesting Comparison

Have you ever thought that both Islam and Mormonism claim to have received their revelations from an angel from heaven?

Galatians 1:8 says, "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!" (NASB)

Mormons will try to argue that they aren't preaching a "different gospel". It continually amazes/amuses me that they try to use that line of thinking. If it isn't different, why even HAVE the Mormon church? Oh yes... they are trying to restore the gospel. Just like they "restored" the Book of Abraham"? Man's fabrication from beginning to end. Nothing at all to do with God.

I'll get to that in another post.

No truth in these...

I looked, but I could not find Truth in these man made religions/heresies:

  • Islam (Denies Truth is the son of God)
  • Mormonism (Says that Truth and Lucifer are brothers; sons of a man-cum-god)
  • Gay Christian Movement (Denies Truth is able to transform and calls Truth a liar)
  • Buddhism (Claims that someone else is Truth and that Truth wasn't needed)

Truth is there for all to see. He came to us. Immanuel.

My Quest

I am on a search for Truth. Nothing is sacred except Truth.

(and Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life..." )
