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.
